Here is something that was forwarded to me from a friend.
I am totally amazed, but sadly not too surprised.
I hate to say it, but there isn’t a lot that the Muslims can do that will shock me anymore.
We all read about the atrocities being committed in Iraq and also in the Middle East.
Our troops are exposed to the truth that the "Religion of Peace" is capable of and is willing to do to promote their theology.
If this doesn’t get your blood to boil then you have no heart.
This Muslim menace needs to be dealt with. I do not think that a few "radicals" are doing this.
I think that this is being done with blessings from their Holy imam’s and the Quran.
This idea came from the pits of Hell (along with several other Religion of Peace practices) because only Satan could have thought of this.
How many more examples from the Religion of Peace do we need before we WAKE –UP?
Wake up damit, WAKE UP! PLEASE WAKE UP!
Thank You

Thyestean feast? [Victor Davis Hanson]
Greek mythology often encapsulated an entire culture's worst fears and depravities-and over centuries of story-telling became ever more complex and layered and bizarre.But what is strange about reading Michael Yon's graphic descriptions from Iraq is that al Qaeda (or its kindred) seems almost in a single generation to be outdoing a millennium of savagery present in Greek history and myth. You have to go to Thucydides's Mycalessus to find a parallel of wiping out even the animals of a small village.On Friday, Yon reported that al Qaeda served up a son for dinner to his own family— a barbarism reminiscent of Atreus (hence the "curse" on the House of Atreus) cooking (sans feet and hands) and then serving his twin brother's sons to their unsuspecting father Thyestes. So Yon reports a revolting modern-day Thysestean feast:
The official reported that on a couple of occasions in Baqubah, al Qaeda invited to lunch families they wanted to convert to their way of thinking. In each instance, the family had a boy, he said, who was about 11-years-old. As LT David Wallach interpreted the man's words, I saw Wallach go blank and silent. He stopped interpreting for a moment. I asked Wallach, "What did he say?" Wallach said that at these luncheons, the families were sat down to eat. And then their boy was brought in with his mouth stuffed. The boy had been baked. Al Qaeda served the boy to his family.
What is striking about all this savagery—whether with the filmed beheadings of Westerners in Iraq to the recent flaming Johnny Storm human torch at Glasgow, screaming epithets as he sought to engulf bystanders and ignite his canisters — is the absolute silence of the West, either distracted by Paris and i-Phones or suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome and obsessed with Guantanamo.It is hard to recall an enemy so savage and yet one so largely ignored by rich affluent and distracted elites as the radical jihadists, as we have to evoke everything from mythology to comic books to find analogies to their extra-human viciousness.For a self-congratulatory culture issuing moral lectures on everything from global warming to the dangers of smoking, the silence of the West toward the primordial horror from Gaza to Anbar is, well, horrific in its own way as well...
