Well, it's Eid Al Adha, 2015 and this article has been percolating around my head for about a month now.
I mentioned it to my husband last night and he said, don't do it, it's in bad taste, so I almost put an apology in as a prelude to what I am about to say, and then I thought no! I am going to write about this, it needs to be said... here goes..
So I'll start off with this to soften the blow somewhat.
1/ Not all Muslims are extremists.
2/I hate no Muslim personally not even one, never will.
Ok, preliminaries out of the way, here's a little background on Eid Al Adha.
This week the majority, if not all Muslims from around the world will be celebrating Eid Al Adha with prayers, family and feasting, over the course of a few days.
Eid Al Adha is the greater of two Eid celebrations, the lesser is Eid al Fitr which is the feast that occurs at the close of Ramadan.
These celebrations are of the same import to Muslims, as Easter, and Christmas to Christians, Pesach and Yom Kippur to the Jewish community, or New Years Eve to the general public.
So needless to say, this is a very important date on the (lunar) calendar for Muslims of all ages, stages and races.
Eid Al Adha is an Islamic 'feast of sacrifice', in which Muslims celebrate the mercies of god, using the well known Judaeo Christian story, that most Westerners would know as the historical, biblical account of Abraham, his son Isaac and the sacrificial lamb.
The story in which Abraham goes to an alter to sacrifice his promised son Isaac in obedience to God, and at the last minute God stops him and provides a sacrificial lamb to kill instead of his own beloved son, this story of course points ahead prophetically in time, to the coming Messiah, the lamb of God, whom Christians know to be Jesus, and who was sacrificed to save humanity from the ramifications of the sin of the world - death and hell.
The main difference between the biblical narrative and the Islamic version celebrated at Eid Al Adha, is that Islam, of course, have changed the names of the characters written about in the bible, to suit their own narrative. The name changes in the story have been changed from Yahweh God to Allah, from Abraham to Ibrahim and from Isaac to Ishmael, (oh, and when Jesus Messiah, Son of God came later, they claimed him as their own, named him Issa, and claimed him to be a man and a lesser prophet to Muhammad, a mere man who didn't die on the cross, who was not God or His son, thus trying to deliver a final death knell to Christianity in one fell swoop).
And let it be known please, that Islam made these alterations years after it was written in the Torah and years after Jesus and His disciples and the New testament happenings.
So in essence, Islam stole the identity of Yahweh God and replaced him with their tribal moon God Allah , they replaced Jesus with Muhammad, Abraham the founding father of Israel with Ibrahim one of the founding fathers and a lesser prophet, and Jacob the promised son of Sarah and Abraham with Ishmael the promised son of Islam.
Pretty sneaky huh?
It is perhaps the greatest heist in the world's history and the evil effects of this thievery are still being felt to this very day, all throughout the world, even to Australia.
And not only that, but in Islam's attempt to usurp the place of the Jews and Christians and their historical significance as God's people and steal not only their history, but identity, they have also attempted to steal Israel's Abrahamic blessing and Christianity's Messiaanic blessing, thus inserting Islam into the story as the chosen people of God instead of Israel and Christians.
So, you can see why Islam hates and always has hated both the Jew and the Christian. As Islam, their religion, is but a fraudulent copy of the real deal, usurped and birthed through envy, bitterness and malice. It is sibling rivalry syndrome but taken to an international level, and hopefully, just this short history lesson will help you get just a small glimpse into the current ongoing issues in our world today.
So thank you for allowing me this slight side track to share this brief look into the origins behind the celebration feast of the sacrifice Eid Al Adha, which is a fraudulent celebration based off a stolen history, with no true historical validity, and an attempt at a stolen promise. In other words Eid Al Adha is but a fraud, which btw should really make you wonder about the whole of religion of Islam, eh? But that's another story and I digress.
Eid al Adha is celebrated after the yearly Hajj of many to the holy land Mecca (of course Mecca is false attempted carbon copy of the true holy city of Jerusalem, which Islam of course (and one would expect no less, are currently holding hostage in Israel, who in turn are also currently being held under guard by the false nation of 'Palestine', so perhaps you are starting to get the picture now).
So anyway, Eid al Adha is one of two yearly celebrations and is celebrated by the Muslims at the end of my street in Sydney Australia, to the Muslim's in Saudi Arabia, in Africa, in Indonesia, and in Syria. Yep, basically anywhere there are Muslims, Eid Al Adha will be celebrated .
Ok, so it's Eid Al Adha and every Muslim from the Mino's (Muslims in name only) to the extremo's and everyone in between will be celebrating their hearts out all this week.
And just to reiterate here before I continue and before anybody else asks, yes I do know there is a difference between 'Mino's' and 'extremo's.
BUT... and here's the real point I have been trying to get to, via our quick history lesson. Now it's one thing to steal the main characters of two other main religions and celebrate that every year, sure, each to their own, why not, it's quite another however for the most devout elements of your religion to kill , displace and enslave 100s of 1,'000's of the modern day followers of those religion's and then expect everyone else to celebrate with you.
For you see while Islam in it's entirety has been celebrating, shouting Allahu Akbah to their moon god allah, sacrificing Halal animals and feasting with family and friends year in and year out, millions have been and 1,000's upon 1,000's still are... dying. And here's where the heading of this article comes finally comes to the real point in asking a valid question that I think needs to be answered and now! " And so this is Eid... and what have you done"? (To the tune of the song "and so this is Christmas and what have you done"?)
What have you done Islam to stop all that is being done in the name of your religion and in the name of your God. What have you done?
Below is a list taken from Wikipedia of the sacrifices of human life made in the name of Allah and Islam, just over the last 12 months, it goes on... and on... and on... and on.
Please take a moment of silence to read through the list and think on the victims and their families. I think they are owed at the very least that.
These are the sacrifices I am thinking about this Eid al Adha... I don't know about you

So, this is what is going on while Islam celebrates yet another Eid, shouts Allahu Akbar and howls victim, when what they really need to do take full responsibility for their actions as a whole.
To say Islam is not Islam is a cop out that is starting to wear thin when you look at a list like the one above.
It makes no sense to me folks, masses are dying here in the name Islam in the most horrific and horrendous of ways and they are innocents, not the opposing side in some war and yet what do we here from Islam really, yep crickets.
So this Eid, in pondering on sacrifice I hope Muslims will this time, give a thought in their celebrations to those who have been sacrificed in the name of their religion, in the last year, and the year before, and the year before that, and the 1,000 years before that, right back to Islam's inception and you might at least ponder this 2015, perhaps, just perhaps, NO, most definitely and NOW, the fact that something's gotta shift in the very ideological foundations of Islam itself.
Nope, a couple hundred thousand fatwas and a few hundred more years of infighting aint gonna cut the mustard this time, people are starting to wake up.
Please stop blaming certain factions and take responsibility for the actions of you own, actions perpetrated and perpetuated in the name of Muhammad, in the name of Allah, In the name of your Holy books.
I've had a gut full of you celebrating sacrifice at the end of my street, in Saudi, in Asia, in Africa, in Australia while people are still literally being sacrificed by the 1,000's upon 1,000's, displaced by the millions and all in the name of your religion.
Please; I beg of you, stop playing victim long enough to start talking reformation. It's time, enough is enough, enough of the sacrifice, it's time to lay claim and give a name to all that is happening in the name of Allah and walk away from the evil this Eid
Enough already, no more hajj, no more celebrations, no more mosque building or hirja or halal until this is settled and sorted once and for all. No more sacrifice, no more killing, no more fgm, pedophilIa, dv and enslavement, it's time to get to the bottom of all of this, this Eid, for you and me and for everyone.
In finishing, modern Islam cannot go on celebrating Eid Al Adha like there's nothing wrong, when person, after person, after person are killing on the name of their god and following after the words and works of his prophet Muhammad.
No longer will it be acceptable for Muslims to put their head in the sand, live in delusion and denial, and play the victim, whilst 1,000s upon millions of people have been and are being harmed, slaughtered, molested, raped, murdered, enslaved subjugated, mutilated and displaced in the name of Allah.
The false victim hood and finger pointing at the victims has to stop.
The false victim mentality has to stop.
Responsibility must be taken!
It is enough already.
May this be a contemplative and changeful Eid 2015 for the whole of for the worlds sake.
This is a call for reformation no celebration.
This is a call for
Enough this Eid! Enough!
