The boy is gonna have a sore ass.

On the other hand, Q-duffy couldn’t get any further than reprimanding this SOB, Assad or Mubarak could issue him a certificate of honor for pushing diversity.
As soon as some forms of diversity aren’t as equal as others, the first muslim POTUS just coudn’t tolerate these half-assed muslim leaders.
Get ready, Lebanon. Hussein Osama is coming!
“....in her escape to Sweden to secure asylum.”
Wrong place for her to go — Sweden has too many muslims and her life will be in jeopardy the moment she gets off the plane.
Prayers for Maryam and the two men who helped her. Their reward is waiting for them.
Sooner than later this religion of Peace needs to go the way of the Do-Do bird as it is just about as useful as socialism or teats on a boar. That is if mankind wants to continue on its evolutionary path of enlightenment.
As a Freeper so eloquently stated a while back Any well-founded religion can survive blasphemy except (i)slam and this is the reason it is forbidden
