Is he still alive ? I read it was possible he was critically injured on Saturday. I know today is Saturday HERE, but last night it was Saturday there.
Twitter’s kind of entertaining on this subject. The guy goes from injured, to uninjured, to a fraud at about five minute intervals. The Iraqi government takes the latter position.
Yes obey the idiot, Muslims. I’ll obey him by telling him off just like I obey Obama. I’ll be cooking some pork to celebrate the fact you stupid Muslims can’t eat pork. Oh well more me us!!!!!
have your camel meat, I'll have pork...
Why is this Mosque still standing?
Why is Obama still pondering?
Why did the American people elect Pres. Obama?
