Mantiq al-Tayr – April 1, 2010
1. Let’s all enjoy Passover Week the way they do in Israel by killing Palestinian children
. I mean, what better way to celebrate a holiday that sanctifies plagues and mass infanticide
? Could you imagine if every year Muslims gathered their children at home and held a dinner for them that ran for hours and hours during which they celebrated the massacre of a bunch of Jewish kids?
2. Oh, and btw, I hope all of you followed Israeli Vice President for American Affairs (until he is impeached) Barack Obama’s example and held a wonderful Seder at your home. If you did not, then you need to send an apology to Abe Foxman. How cool do you think it was of this guy to fly to Afghanistan to show support for the puppet regime there and then immediately fly back and do this
The ISVPAA was quoted as saying at this commemoration of murder and pestilence visited upon the Egyptian people: “the enduring story of the Exodus teaches us that wherever we live, there is oppression to be fought and freedom to be won.”
Okay President Obama, what about the Palestinians?
3. The 15-year-old Palestinian killed by the IDF mentioned in item 1 was killed just hours after the Seder on a day known as “Land Day” to Palestinians. His name is Mohammad al-Faramawi
. When will his people get their freedom Mr. IVPFAA?
4. Sam Bahour has a good piece here
on the Seder from a Gazan perspective.
5. You know, we here at Mantiq al-Tayr have a great idea for Egyptian Pharoah and buffoon Muhammad Husni Mubarak that might help him not be universally hated for all-time by succeeding generations until the day of judgment. He should reorganize the popular Egyptian holiday of Sham al-Nasim by making it a commemoration of the Passover. Egyptian mothers and fathers can sit with their children on the evening of Sham al-Nasim and give them plates of leavened bread filled with ful-mudammas, mulukhiyya and real hummus damn it, not just tahinah – real hummus, man when will they ever learn in Egypt?, but I digress. So they all sit down with a bunch of food and they can teach their children to say: “Well, we suffered ten horrible plagues to include the sacrifice of our first born sons, but it was worth it.”
