Mecca's death toll doesn't break the record

The death toll is now up to 717 and at least 863 others were injured in an attempt to walk around a pagan stone known as the Hajj, located in the Muslim so-called holy city of Mecca. The estimated crowd of stone worshipers is about 2 million. 

If you thought the "Pet Rock" was a big deal, this tops it by far.

The stone-walking thing marks the start of the Eid al-Adha holiday which signifies a break in other aspects of Islamic stoning and Sharia related atrocities.

According to Reuters, Saudi state television reported the stampede happened in Mina, a tent city located about 3 miles east of Mecca, just a stone's throw from the hajj.

Mina is on the main road from Mecca near the Hill of Arafat, thought by Muslims to be the place where Mohammed, the so-called prophet of Islam and pedophile, gave his farewell sermon to his army who accompanied him from the killing, robbing and slave-sex orgies, to go to Mecca near the end of his life.

About 2 weeks ago, a tragedy struck in Mecca as Muslims put head to earth, butt to sky, as they prayed to Allah. In answer to their prayers, a crane fell into the mosque killing 111 of the devout, injuring scores of others. 

According to Islamic "experts," all are now in Paradise because they died praying to the moon god, Allah.

Back to the hajj.

Many of those who died in the crush were trampled to death as they were on their way to practice throwing stones at imaginary Sharia violators. Not really--the stone throwing, while it does help develop better aim, is actually a symbolic stoning of the devil (who looks Jewish, I bet) and the objects are aimed at 3 stone columns in Mina.

Two survivors told the AP the disaster started when one wave of crazed Muslims found themselves heading into a mass of other crazed Muslims heading in another direction.

"I saw someone trip over someone in a wheelchair and several people tripping over him. People were climbing over one another just to breathe," one survivor said. "It was like a wave. You go forward and suddenly you go back."

Saudi King Salman, the guy who appears to be going for the Saudi Arabian beheading record this year, ordered the creation of a committee to look into the matter.

Major General Mansour al-Turki, the Interior ministry's spokesman, blamed it on global warming and pilgrim fatigue. He said there was no evidence that authorities were to blame for the event. 

President Barack Obama is expected to praise him for his assessment as al-Turki is in lockstep with "mainstream science."

Another survivor, call him Ismail, 58, from Nigeria, recalled falling and then being trampled over by marching Muslims. "It was terrible, it was really, really terrible," he said, not adding that it had made him question his belief in Islam as doing so would have undoubtedly made the trampling job look like kids play.

At least 89 Iranians died in the trampling and 150 were injured, none of whom were known nuclear device scientists.

Ironically, perhaps, no Egyptians died and Alex Jones is claiming that this was because it was an "inside job."

Be that as it may, this year was not even close to the record that happened in 1990, when 1426 of the faithful were trampled or suffocated in an Islamic stampede that happened in a pedestrian tunnel leading to the "holy" site. 

Other attempts at the record were in 2004 with 244 killed, and in 2006 with 364 dead. But the Saudis say it isn't their fault. 

So should we blame Allah or Mohammad? You make the call.

Meanwhile, back in New York, Pope Francis came to town.

To ensure no harm came to the pontiff via crazy fanatics or Islamic orthodox folks, the NY Police Department (NYPD) had the town tied tighter than Hillary's tush. There were no incidents, no attempts at harming the pope and nobody got crushed by the Christians who came to see him. Definitely not as exciting as Mecca.

Pope Francis met with so-called president Obama and gave the cold shoulder to the Obama buddies who believe it's okay to kill babies in the womb and halfway out.
