Millions of Muslims are joining together around the world to celebrate the first day of the Islamic holiday Eid-al Adha. The celebration, also known as the 'feast of sacrifice' commemorates the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim - also known as Abraham to Christians and Jews - to sacrifice his son before God stayed his hand. During the three-day holiday - which begins today - Muslims slaughter livestock, distributing part of the meat to the poor.

"Eid milaad saeed."
They say that at the Christian Christmas as well. It's a loose form of "happy holiday."
Better that they be slaughtering their livestock and cattle and getting fat on all that Halal meat and throwing rocks at pillars than blowing themselves up.
What I find interesting is that this celebration is about Abraham’s willingness to be obedient to God’s will and sacrifice his son. In my Bible, the son is Isaac; in the Muslim world, it’s Ishmael.
EID, just keeping in practice for when the REAL THROAT SLITTING is ordered.
Did Obama slaughter a goat at the White House as part of his celebration?
For the historical record - *every* ancient religion did blood sacrifices until the time of Christ. Christ’s atonement ended the need for them among those Jews and Gentiles who accepted that belief; hence Christianity is the first religion without blood atonement.
When we lived in Nepal, the Hindus did a once yearly blood sacrifice and spread blood, not just on an altar somewhere, but on everything that moved - including taxis! And if there was a special need, a chicken would be sacrificed occasionally at other times.
Further comment: should the Jews rebuild their Temple (as the orthodox Jews and dispensationals believe they should), they will also begin blood sacrifices again.
Yep, they co-opt all of God’s promises to the sons of Abraham,Isaac, and Jacob and apply them to the sons of Ishmael.
And when animal sacrifices commence in the to-be-built Jewish temp!e, the world will go into conniptions. But this, nothing.
Stoning the Devil = Stoning Allah.
There is no Allah but Satan, and Muhammad was his murdering pedophile.
