Happy Feast of the Transfiguration to those on the old calendar! Happy birthday, as well, to my sister!
Thou wast transfigured upon the mountain, O Christ our God, showing Thy glory to Thy disciples as far as they were able to sustain. Shine forth also upon us sinners, Thine everlasting light, by the prayers of the Mother of God. O Giver of light, glory to Thee.
Thou wast transfigured upon the mountain, and Thy disciples beheld Thy glory, O Christ our God, as far as they were able so to do: that when they saw Thee crucified, they might know that Thy suffering was voluntary, and might proclaim unto the world that Thou art truly the Brightness of the Father.
It is unfair though quite easy to select a group of morons and make them represent a larger group negatively. Obese, socialist pig Michael Moore has made a name and an endless pork rind fund for himself by employing such tactics. However, I do not believe that the following video of Arabfest in Dearborn, Michigan is guilty of such.
Western civilization’s experience with the Friends of Mo’ over the centuries would suggest that the video’s makers Nabeel Qureshi and David Wood were quite fortunate to have only had their cameras knocked around. At least, they still have their heads. For how much longer, though, will Mohammedans in America fear to revert to type under the rule of (liberal, Christian, Anglo-Saxon) law? Perhaps, it is a question of numbers . . .
So, why are they here?
