  • 72 what?

    A German linguist agrees: the Koran actually promises 72 raisins, not 72 virgins. Oops.

    Additional mistranslations: women are supposed to wear belts, not burkas, and Mohammed is “a prophet”, not “the prophet” (in other words, he does NOT superscede the teachings of Jesus or Moses).

  • Double sided

    Wolfie has pissed off al-Jazeera by telling the truth about their lies.

    Meanwhile, Colon Blow is attempting to get Bush to follow the EU and recognize that Hamas is a charity. Fortunately, Bush said “no”.

    UPDATE: Misha is hoping…. Us too.
