Photo: Thousands of Muslim pilgrims pray near the Namira Mosque at Mount Arafat, southeast of the Saudi holy city of Mecca, on November 15. Around two million white-robed Muslims converged at Mount Arafat as the hajj, the world's largest annual pilgrimage, peaked at the site of Moe's last sermon
'God is the Greatest', 'Death to Israel', and 'Death to America' were among the slogans chanted by the masses in unison as they gathered in the Desert of Arafat. Their consistent message is very loud and very clear. No double meanings here. Perhaps Ground Zero mosque Imam Rauf can explain to us how this is all our fault, and Daisy the Khan can subdue us by explaining, "the era of extremism is over."
The pilgrims chanted anti-US and anti-Zionist slogans during the ceremony also attended by the Supreme Leader's representative for Hajj affairs, Hojatoleslam Ali Qazi-Asgar.
'God is the Greatest', 'Death to Israel', and 'Death to America', were among slogans chanted by the masses in unison as they gathered in the Desert of Arafat, 20 kms (12 miles) from Mecca, for a day of prayer and meditation.
The faithful - men clad in two-piece seamless white shrouds and women all covered except for their hands and faces to symbolize equality -- converged on Arafat.
The President's message is consistent, too. Hardwired for submission, surrender, and delusion.
Michelle and I extend our greetings for a happy Eid-ul-Adha to Muslims worldwide and wish safe travels to those performing Hajj. This year, nearly three million pilgrims from more than 160 countries - including the United States - have gathered in Mecca and neighboring sites to perform the Hajj rituals and stand together in prayer.On Eid, Muslims around the world will commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, and distribute food to those less fortunate - a reminder of the shared values and the common roots of three of the world's major religions.
