Ah, the Muslim holidays… when
CDNN can write about 5 things to know about the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, to prepare you for Dhimmitude.
DNN is helping you pronounce the word:
Pronounced EED al-UHD-huh, the holiday begins Friday and ends Monday — the last day of the Hajj. Eid al-Adha is also known as the Feast of Sacrifice or Greater Eid. It is the longer of two Eid holidays observed by Muslims. Eid al-Fitr — or Little Eid — follows the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan.
They also give you a greeting or two, for your Muslim overlords:
Eid Mubarak (pronounced EED muh-BAR-ack) and Eid Saeed are routine greetings used during the observance to offer best wishes.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, DNN uses the journalistic sleight of hand, switching past and future time and traditions, as well as omitting vital parts of the story, so to not offend their future overlords and to make the passing into Dhimmitude much smoother:
Eid al-Adha commemorates when God appeared to Abraham — known as Ibrahim to Muslims — in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience. As Abraham was about to sacrifice his son, God stopped him and gave him a sheep to kill in place of his son. A version of the story also appears in the Torah and in the Bible’s Old Testament.
When Islam was just a hobby by some pedophile merchant from Mecca, it was geared at Medina’s 3 Jewish tribes, the Banu Qaynuqa, the Banu Qurayza, and Banu Nadir. Also on the cater-to-the-Jews list, was the direction of prayer – the Qibla – towards Jerusalem, the ban on pork, and countless other traditions and practices.
The most notable plagiarism is that of Biblical figures and actions, the binding of Isaac included, and while the Biblical story clearly states that Abraham was to take Isaac, the Quranic version doesn’t give a name, giving in to the modern Muslim consensus that it was actually Ishmael.
So by saying that “A version of the story also appears in the Torah and in the Bible’s Old Testament”, DNN shows that not only does it have no clue that the Torah is part of the Old Testament, they make it seem as if the two stories are equal. As if the two versions originated at the same time, with multiple eyewitness accounts that have to be reported without fact checking, when in fact, one is hundreds of years later and based on the Biblical story.
