It is now two days away from Ramadan and the Islamic world is gearing up for another month of ritual starvation aimed at helping the devout empathize with the poor by eating like pigs before going hungry till 6pm when they eat like pigs again!

 Funny thing is if you ask most Muslims why they starve themselves they won't know. they will only tell you that it is what they are supposed to do. No surprise, at least not here in Indonesia as the average Muslim is a blathering nincompoop obsessed with the Arabic language and desert fashion. I'm really surprised that in their zeal to emulate even the way Mohammed poops, they haven't all taken up camel riding!

  I, for the most part, am used to the Arabic howling, but what is most irritating is the jungle drums they beat incessantly at 3 am all the while yelling for people to wake up and eat like pigs for their day long make believe poor people simulation.
  That's my rant for today.......

Oh no...I pity you having to live in an Islamic country at a time like this. You can't even eat out in public right? I know in Iran - if you eat out in public during Ramadan - the penalty if caught is lashing

They do hang curtains on public-facing windows to block the site of food from the strong of faith! To be fair, Indonesia, while having occasional bouts with terrorists, is a rather moderate Islamic state as compared to Iran.

  So if your a non-Muslim you must make every sacrifice to accommodate them, whether that means eating behind a curtain or making sure not to eat in front of them, because those of such strong faith need laws to ensure such religious devotion.


  Nice to meet you Sassan. I've read some of what you have written on here.
