Sure, the crosses, wine, saints, incense, and stale crackers have been fun. But it's time to brush up on your Islam, find out which direction Mecca is in, and fall down on the prayer rug.
All jokes aside......this story is actually completely and totally repulsive. It is CLEARLY a story about the evidence of some TRULY sick abuse of an infant. The parents should immediately be arrested and charged. Sickening.
MUSLIMS FLOCK TO SEE MIRACLE BABY
KIZLYAR, Russia – A “miracle” baby has brought a kind of mystical hope to people in Russia’s mostly Muslim southern fringe who are increasingly desperate in the face of Islamist violence.
From hunchbacked grandmas to schoolboys, hundreds of pilgrims lined up this week in blazing sunshine to get a glimpse of 9-month-old baby Ali Yakubov, on whose body they say verses from the Koran appear and fade every few days.
Pinkish in color and several centimeters high, the Koranic verse “Be thankful or grateful to Allah” was printed on the infant’s right leg in clearly legible Arabic script this week, religious leaders said. Visiting foreign journalists later saw a single letter after the rest had vanished.
