Allah Responds

THOUSANDS of people flocked to southern Egypt today to seek blessing from a calf they believe was born as God’s reply to the publication in Europe of cartoons depicting the prophet, police said.Some 20,000 thousand people had gathered in front of Mohammed Abu Dif’s house in the village of Tunis to see the holy mammal, whose skin folds when he was born reportedly formed the words “There is no God but Allah”, a police official said on condition of anonymity.

He said the villagers flocked from all over the southern governorate of Sohag to the farmer’s house and had to be dispersed by police, who feared the gathering could get out of control.

Witnesses said they believed the calf was “Allah’s response to current attacks against Islam”, the official said.

Pretty sad really. In the old days you could count on the wrath of God wiping out a city or two. Now it seems a calf with skin folds is the best that can be mustered up.

Dave: thanks to you and a few others I’m back…Back again…call your friends…Nah, I’m not into that white rapper(what’s his name) that much any more so here it goes: Muslims seem to want to believe anything and everything that mirrors their preconceptions. These are the most backwards,irritant, uneducated, improverished,pathetic idiots the world has known yet. Not all Muslims of course as I personally am familiar with quite a few who’re the complete opposites of my vivid description:)

But the extent to which these peoples’ ignorance can take them with the 70 virgins for every lunatic who blows himself up killing innocent people just tells you something about the culture they’re raised in.

There are plenty of Christians who are the same way, seeing the virgin Mary in a Cheese Sandwich for example.

Dave, you blasphemer. You think that wasn’t really the Virgin Mary? I am burning you in effigy right now.
