Yesterday, in the world of Islam...

...came these images of the celebration of Ashura.

The Day of Ashura (عاشوراء (ʻĀshūrā’, Ashura, Ashoura, and other spellings) is on the 10th day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram.

It is commemorated by Shia Muslims as a day of mourning for the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala on 10 Muharram in the year 61 AH (October 10, 680 AD[1]).

Ah, the religion of peace...

...or is it pieces?

You be the judge!

Grins and Giggles, and then some!

"Failed miserably"

Janet, dearie, your explanation doesn't hold much water! What a disgusting display!

And still no statement from "the duffer"!

Clueless Napolitano Now Concedes System 'Failed Miserably'

It took a tough question from Matt Lauer, but after having laughably claimed that "the system worked," DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has now conceded the obvious: that the security system that permitted Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to board NWA 253 with explosives "failed miserably."

On Today and in other interviews this morning, Napolitano attempted to use her own ignorance as a shield. Each time she was hit with a hard question, her response was to the effect "yeah, we're wondering about that ourselves." She also continued to point the finger back at George Bush, repeatedly mentioning that the security procedures in place were formulated under the Bush administration.

Whatever happened to "change you can believe in"?
