Hajj Stampede: 717 People Die In Mecca Crush

What is wrong with these people.  It's not the first time this has happened.

Loony toons, you ask me.


More than 700 people have been killed and at least 800 have been injured during the Muslim ritual of "stoning the devil" at Mina near Mecca. Scenes from the site show piles of bodies piled on top of each other.

Seventh century unreformed medieval fanatics, Europeans repelled them at the Gates of Vienna and the Battle of Tours, unfortunately they are now invited into our culture and given full citizenship rights and are, among other things, outbreeding us at a rate of knots.  Sounds fatalistic but it's the start of the end of western European civilisation.  Very sad.

Muslims from around the globe attend the Hajj.  It's the most diverse Muslim group anywhere in the world as a pilgrimage.  However, the city with the most diverse Muslim base is London, that is to say there are more Muslims from different nations right here in the capital.

Should the stoning the devil ritual become an annual event in our midst, goodness knows what the consequences would be.

The biggest gathering of people is in India they estimate 30.million bathe in the Ganges at one spot in the one day.Hundreds die but it gets no publicity and is never mentioned.A lot of the people that attend are the untouchables or the Sadhu who live really off grid never working getting food and shelter as gifts.No one would allow it in this country.

True Percy and very unfortunate, but they don't kill people and slaughter animals in a barbaric way, and are not hell bent on converting their faith upon the world by slaughtering.

Indeed, most of them are vegetarians and treat animals as deities.

The Kumbh Mela in the Indian town of Allahabad will see up to 100 million worshippers gather to take a ritual bath in the holy waters, believed to cleanse sins and bestow blessings.



This is done over a period of 55 days, where devout Hindus are gently led by naked ascetics into the water.

Millions of gallons of industrial effluents and raw sewage drain into the Ganges each day. The results are devastating and that's what kills people.

The Hungarian prime minister said "it's his job to protect his country against mass immigration" if only one of our snivelling shysters had his balls,sadly no chance, too late anyway.
