    Today, fake officials filed a formal complaint against the Presidential campaign of Kamela Harris.  The fake charges and details of the case follow: The 2020 Harris Presidential Campaign for POTUS hired illegal aliens to dye and trim the hairs of a camel to create a likeness of Kamela Harris on the male camel's hump. A regular tourist of the festival said, "I'm very disappointed.  Their political stunt cheapened a beautiful festival honoring one of the great animals of the Earth." The owner of the abused camel translated the camel's complaint as follows: "In America, I hear Kamela Harass gives...

    The milk primarily targets infants allergic to cow’s milk. Camel milk for centuries was a staple for Bedouin peoples across the Gulf, who continue to include the vitamin-rich milk in their modern-day diets. A UAE-based company has unveiled what it calls the world’s first camel-based baby formula, an instant powder mix aimed mainly at infants allergic to cow’s milk. The Emirates Industry for Camel Milk & Products, or “Camelicious”, on Monday unveiled the product at Gulfood 2018, an international food and beverage trade event which runs from February 18 to 22 in Dubai.

    Two years ago, the Regavim movement for protecting Israel's resources and sovereignty uncovered Israeli police data showing that every year police respond to 1,000 complaints of camels roaming roads in the south (a total of 7151 cases from January 2008 until June 2015). Regavim publicized the issue, petitioned to have law enforcement intervene, and wrote letters and drafted legislation to kept the issue alive in the media and the Knesset. Yesterday their efforts paid off: The "Camel Law" passed the first legislative hurdle towards enactment. For nearly two years, Regavim, together with MK Bezalel Smotrich, has been working on formulating...

    Twelve camels have been disqualified from an annual Saudi beauty contest after their owners were found to have used Botox. The animals were ejected from the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival, taking place near Riyadh, for violating strict beauty contest rules. Cash prizes for camel competitions at the 28-day festival total $57million, so pressure to cheat can be intense.

Charles Pope • February 23, 2016 • The teaching contained in the Gospel for yesterday (Tuesday of the 2nd Week of Lent) is one that is easy to miss by overanalyzing the details. Catholics are frequently questioned about the passage: Jesus says, "Call no man on earth your father." That one line spurs a battle! On one side, Evangelicals stand poised to rebuke the Catholic practice of calling priests "Father," and on the other are Catholics ready to defend the practice.Yes, before the sentence...

    According to the government’s thinking, not only will it give Muslim migrants work, the hope is that automotive companies like Volvo will use the camels in their advertisements in Sweden. Marketing genius, eh? The government thinks that tourists might come to Sweden to “pet the camels” and that there “will be fashion shows.” “Camel products will be sold.” I kid you not. And selling of camel milk which “is said to help autism,” which is completely untrue. Camel milk does not cure autism.

    The first time Somali-American chef Jamal Hashi put camel meat on his menu in Minneapolis, it didn't go well. He tried grinding it into a burger and using chunks of it in a spicy stew, but no matter, the texture was bad and the sales were worse. "It was like chewing on a patty of rubber bands," he said of the burger. At its best, camel meat tastes much like lean beef. But certain cuts can be tough, and if the meat comes from an old camel, it can also taste gamey. Hashi had used a shoulder cut, and neither...

    Initially seen as the Army's answer to how to settle the frontier, the camels eventually became a literal beast of burden, with no home on the range. In the 1880s, a wild menace haunted the Arizona territory. It was known as the Red Ghost, and its legend grew as it roamed the high country. It trampled a woman to death in 1883. It was rumored to stand 30 feet tall. A cowboy once tried to rope the Ghost, but it turned and charged his mount, nearly killing them both. One man chased it, then claimed it disappeared right before his...
