A Couple Of Interesting Articles in Today's Paper

Muslims are bad! That's what many believe, however, as I have said over and over, militant Muslims (much like Militant Christians) are the problem. Read this tiny little blurb from today's Philadelphia Inquirer:

Muslims rally to pray for peace

TONGI, Bangladesh - About three million Muslims raised their hands in prayer for global peace, putting aside Bangladesh's sometimes violent struggle with political corruption and Islamic extremists at one of the world's largest religious gatherings.
The final prayer yesterday capped a three-day Islamic gathering on the banks of the River Turag in a small industrial town just north of Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital.
The annual gathering shuns politics and focuses on reviving the tenets of Islam and promoting peace and harmony. Participants discuss Islam's holy book, the Koran, pray, and listen to sermons by Islamic scholars from around the world. - AP

That's three million people!

Meanwhile, those wacky Saudi's are at it again! Didn't we fight Gulf War I to help these freedom loving folks?

Check out this equally tiny piece also from today's Inquirer.

A Saudi Arabian judge sentenced 20 foreigners to receive lashes and spend several months in prison after convicting them of attending a party where alcohol was served and men and women danced, a newspaper reported yesterday. The state-guided newspaper Okaz did not identify the foreigners, give their nationalities or say when the party took place.

I guess freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose...
