Hey – it’s Ramadan. Let’s smash things, burn churches, stab, shoot and bomb the infidels. It’s the perfect kick off to the Muslim HOLY month of Ramadan, which began at sundown Friday, May 26 and runs through June 24.

History.com writes that, “Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, introspection and prayer for Muslims, the followers of Islam. Fasting is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam. Each day during Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset. They are also supposed to avoid eating, drinking, smoking and sexual activity, as well as unkind or impure thoughts and words, and immoral behavior.”

I assume that “unkind and impure thoughts,” as well as “immoral behavior,” do not include the murder of close to 200 people, and injury to thousands – so far.

“Muslims break their daily fasts by sharing meals with family and friends.” Then a few jumped into a van with 12 inch knives, drove into London, running over and wiping out dozens, before exiting the van to begin stabbing as many as they could before armed police finally killed them.

“Ramadan is a time to practice self-restraint and self-reflection. Muslims go to work and school and take care of their usual activities during Ramadan; however, some also read the entire Quran, say special prayers and attend mosques more frequently during this time.” read more
