Muslim Holiday Ashura: Blood on American Streets

Once again the annual bloody ritual of Ashura is upon us. Muslims flagellate themselves and their children with whips and chains until bloody to commemorate the death of our President’s namesake, Hussein. Why is this savagery tolerated in the US, considering that blood borne illnesses could be hazardous and such? But it’s more imporant to adhere to and to respect the sharia and not offend Islam. That is the priority.

Afghan Muslims beating themselves in memory of Hussein

“When I was 15 years old I started hitting myself to commemorate (Imam) Hussein’s martyrdom with our blood. I used to hit my back with the chains but now I am hitting my chest. I have promised God that as long as I am alive I would shed my blood to mark Hussein’s martyrdom because Hussein scarified himself for Allah,” Abdul Aziz Karbalaiee said.


Ashura in NY and Beyond: Burka Blockade on Park Avenue

Ashura in New York…… previous years of Ashura in NY and across the world. Gruesome. Park Avenue, NYC: "Fight oppression" — oh, the irony.

Ashura falls on the 10th day of the Islamic month of Muharram…


Unfathomable. (WaPo video) "extraordinary ritual" The Washington Post’s account of the bloody, masochistic ritual of Ashura is jaw dropping. It calls to mind the puff piece The New York Times did on clitorectomies. The fact that Muslims have brought this vile (blood borne disease anyone?) practice to the streets of New York is bad enough…

Religion of Peace thru Barbarism

It’s that time again. Ashoura "Festival." Remember last year, click here? I expect this to be all the rage in Hollywood shortly, cutting in a big way – Insane Fonda,  Penn, Sarandon – this is one rally they ought to be leading. The blood stains are seen on the back of an Afghan Shiite Muslim…
