Cave drawings thought to 25,000 years old have been discovered in a grotto in western France. Several of the drawingsone showing an apparently turban-wearing human figure eating a wild pigare deemed to be offensive to Islam. Coming on top of the cartoons of Mohammed published in Denmark and reprinted in several other European countries, Muslim anger has continued to swell.
These infidels cannot continue to mock us without consequence, said Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah. The West should be prepared for the real holocaust. When Iran has the bomb there will be no mercy for these blasphemers.
In an effort to placate Muslims outraged by these depictions, the U.S. State Department has directed all U.S. embassies to discontinue serving Danish or French pastries during all official functions.
These feeble measures are not enough, Nasrallah says. At a minimum, Western nations must pass laws decreeing the death penalty for all who insult Islam or there will be no peace. Failure to do so constitutes an act of aggression against our faith. Death and destruction will be the penalty.
In related news, physicians of Pakistan plan to boycott medicines from Europe because of these insults to Islam.
The Secretary-General of the Pakistani Medical Association, Abat Toir, announced that the decision is coming into immediate effect and is directed against Denmark, Norway, Germany, France and Switzerland.
Instead of the medicine from Europe, "alternative" cures will be used. "We will return to our traditional ways," said Toir.
Traditional medicine in the region relies heavily on amputations, bloodletting and poultices comprised of assorted herbs mixed with camel dung.

The Prophet said, "If a house fly falls into the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (into the drink) because one of its wings has a disease, and the other wing has the cure (for the disease)".
