The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

The Lede Says It All

Exhibit A, for your consideration:

Palestinians wait to go on a rocket ride at an amusement park during the third day of the Eid al-Adha festival in Gaza City, Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008. Muslims worldwide are celebrating Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice, commemorating God's provision of a ram to substitute for Abraham's impending sacrifice of his son, where able Muslims offer either a goat, sheep, cow, buffalo, or camel during the feast rituals. The arabic writing reads 'Spaceship.' (AP Photo/Kevin Frayer)

Before you go and accuse me of being insensitive, here's some background.

The irony curtain lifts, even if but for a second.

Update: Why is it that the good ideas come to me after I've clicked the saved button?

Update 2: On a related note..... One wonders how this little turn of technology will affect the popularity of the ride. ;)

Wasn't the "son" that was saved by GOD the one that is in the geneological line of the Jews? So, they are praising the saving of the Jewish line? And, the fact that they want to get rid of the jews means they are going against GOD? If they are praising the saving of the Jews, then shouldn't they now be praising the existence of the Jews?

And, wasn't it that other "son", that was to become the father of all arabs and scion of Islam, that was the bastard child of Abraham? And that same GOD told this "son" that he and his generations would be warring against everyone else for the rest of their days?

oh, and haven't they.
