Sharia Quiz: What Country is This?

The American Spectator’s Spectacle Blog asks What Country is This?

Take a guess what words fill in the blanks (different words for each of the two blanks) in this news story from Friday:

As the sun burned in the soft blue sky, thousands of Muslims poured into ___________ early Friday and filled the morning with the sounds of prayer as they celebrated Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of the Sacrifice, the most important holiday of the Islamic calendar.

“Eid Mubarak,” men and women said in greeting, wishing blessings for the day. Youngsters skipped school, elders from across __________ glowed with the spirit of the season – in culmination of the annual pilgrimage, called Hajj, a tribute to Prophet Abraham’s life and legacy.

OK, let’s make it multiple choice:

1) Angel Stadium, Southern California

2) Tahrir Square, Cairo

3) Wembley Stadium, London

4) Melbourne Cricket Grounds, south-eastern Australia

5) Roland Garros Stadiium, Paris

Read the story and find out. Am I wrong to feel concerned?

As the sun burned in the soft blue sky, thousands of Muslims poured into Angel Stadium early Friday and filled the morning with the sounds of prayer as they celebrated Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of the Sacrifice, the most important holiday of the Islamic calendar.

“Eid Mubarak,” men and women said in greeting, wishing blessings for the day. Youngsters skipped school, elders from across Southern California glowed with the spirit of the season – in culmination of the annual pilgrimage, called Hajj, a tribute to Prophet Abraham’s life and legacy.

More than 20,000 Muslims gathered at the baseball stadium in a historic event organized by leaders of three mosques – the Islamic Center of Irvine, the Islamic Institute of Orange County in Anaheim and the Islamic Society of Orange County in Garden Grove. The three mosques are members of the Islamic Shura Council.

“It brings a different flavor when you’re outdoors in the cool breeze and bright sunshine,” said Shakeel Syed, who heads the Islamic Shura Council.

“In past years,” he said, “people went to individual mosques, but this year — luckily or unluckily — the Angels are not in the playoffs, so the stadium was available.”

Rather than sit in the stands or the bleachers, worshippers walked on the stadium grass, fanning across the baseball diamond.

“The excitement of being in a place that’s generally not accessible to most of us is amazing,” Syed added. “Here, you’re able to see the entire crowd, unlike at a mosque. It lifts up the spirit.”

The words “Eid Ul-Adha” glowed in neon under the Toyota and Metro PCS logos on the Jumbotron screen. It rotated with other Arabic terms, ads touting Quran and Saturday school, and a flashing “Vote on 11/6.” Melodic chants rang in the air.”I felt a sense of unity. I couldn’t believe there was that many people,” said Tarek Soubra, a junior at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove. He missed calculus class, along with Spanish 3 to attend the service, which included a 15-minute sermon.

His father, Samer Soubra, president of Islamic Institute of Orange County, described the experience as “more than what we expected. Not just attendance – but everyone was happy to see all three mosques together, and this way, they could visit with their friends who live in different areas and celebrate with one another.”

“People want to have this every year now,” he added. “Nature was very beautiful.”

Participants said they couldn’t wait to return. “I envision a time when we have 50,000 people–and we can,” Syed noted. “The only challenge is there isn’t a place that can host 50,000 people, with parking, and do it seamlessly.”

So for next year’s prayer sessions, “maybe we’ll have three rounds.”

Will another twenty, thirty, fifty years of rapid Muslim immigration and importation result in scenes like this from Ghazi Stadium, Kabul?

  1. there is a video :

  2. and then this other one :

  3. Bring out the Smith Act! Not a Imam can escape prosecution for sedition. Then hall out Article 3 of the US Constitution. How many people can the FEMA camps hold!

  4. Outlaw Sharia Law. They cannot prevail without it.

  5. next islams will be executing with beheadings in the stadium; when will the folks wake up? nothing good has EVER come from islam

  6. Hay, great place for the end of Eid to halal slaughter the meat, then celebrate with kebabs at the Stadium, that could be rounded off with a stoning for entertainment, of an adulterous woman or two, and a public hanging of homosexuals like they love to do in Iran…yep, love me some old fashioned islam! coming to a town near us real soon!

  7. How close is Angel Stadium to Disneyland?

  8. It’s coming, people, it’s coming and few are listening. Talk it up all the time. Wherever you are try to educate everyone about the clear and present danger of Islam. And while you’re at it, learn to defend yourselves in armed and unarmed combat. The first priority is to stay alive to fight tomorrow. Let the Muslims sacrifice themselves.

    • Pray hard, I’m assuming you’re American, and I agree with your comment, it’s your I.D. “Pray Hard”. I mean no offence, but as I’ve been saying for many years, Americans are just too religious; and it’s working against them, i.e. Americans are too tolerant of other religions, and it’s allowing the murderous, cancerous cult of islam to just run wild in USA.

      So forgive me for saying, praying will get you nowhere. You’re right about defending ourselves; there will, (in my opinion) be massive violence in the future, when Westerners finally wake up. Lets just hope it won’t be too late.

  9. How stupid are the girls in second video? Wear new clothes, go to a restaurant and LegoLand? Really?

  10. How Creepy to see that many Muslims in one place. What am I doing for EIDS? I’m praying for a president that enforces our laws, not Sharia Law so the Muslims will all have to go back to the Middle East. We need to wake up and foil their plans to take over our country. I don’t understand why they keep deporting Indonesians that work hard and assimilate and we keep importing Muslims?

  11. [...] On May 24, 1998, for example, CAIR co-sponsored an incendiary rally at Brooklyn College that featured speakers spouting anti-Jewish rhetoric. One speaker was Wagdy Ghuneim, a radical cleric from Egypt. He told listeners, “Allah says he who equips a warrior of jihad is like the one makes jihad himself.” He led the audience in a song with the lyrics: “No to the Jews, descendants of the apes.” More than 100 of Ghoneim’s supporters, many of them members of the Islamic Institute of Orange County, where he serves as the imam, braved heavy rain and gusty winds Tuesday morning to protest his detainment. Sound familiar? Those supporters of Ghoneim, most likely supporters of sharia as well, were recently at Angels Stadium: [...]
