"At sundown Thursday night, Muslims the world over welcomed Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar ..."

Does that mean muslims will refrain from killing in the name of their "holy" religion?

Many Muslim Olympians decide to postpone Ramadan fasting until after London Olympics
During long summer days in London, that translates into 18 hours of fasting — something that many Muslim athletes consider impossible to do without losing their competitive edge.

Many of the 3,500 or so Muslim athletes expected to compete at the London Olympics will keep eating as usual.
The High Egyptian Islamic Council gave athletes a reprieve by announcing a fatwa, or religious edict, stating that Olympic athletes are not required to fast during coaching or competition.

Egyptian pentathlon coach Sherif al-Eryan said athletes have also sought guidance from a cleric before traveling to London and had decided not to fast during the games. Like other athletes, al-Erayn said, they will have their “full menu in an open buffet” in the athletes village.

Most Muslims people make rules to suit themselves, and they will frown upon non muslims - is this really the teachings of a religion that to hate and hurt fellow humans. Statistics show muslims commit alot of sexual related crimes and abuse.

This Ramandamadoo crap is a sham.

How typical of a Muslim, they meet facts with profanity and baseless accusations.
To prove my point, here is one of thousands of examples.

Hey, muslims do slaughter a lot of other muslims during ramadan every year. We think it's a horrible way to celebrate, but heck, that's just what they do.

I believe George posted a score card for the last 2 years. The death toll was astounding for your holiday.

Why aren't you complaining on behalf of those muslim victims??

"Canada’s geographic quirks pose challenges for fasting Muslims

And soon after his arrival in the Far North from Toronto, Ramadan began, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is a time when devout Muslims such as Mr. Suliman abstain from food, drink and other pleasures in daylight hours to commemorate the revelation of the Koran to Mohammed.

With perpetual daylight, this posed a challenge: Was it at all realistic, or even possible, to fast for an entire month?"

Hmmm....allah didn't think that one out too well!

"Muslims begin Ramadan fast in Asia; holy month marred by bombings in Thailand’s south

The holy month started ominously in southern Thailand, the region where most Thai Muslims live and where an insurgency has claimed thousands of lives. The car bombing started fires at shops and residences and sent black smoke wafting from a row of four-story buildings in a commercial area of Sungai Kolok in Narathiwat province."

I prefer fire works for festive occasions...but I guess that's just me.

Well we have lots of room up north if the world sees fit to have them hold ramadan up there...

I've worked up there many times and it is odd to have 24 hour daylight...even without the fasting!

You muslims need to understand that pork is a staple food in many Western countries. We are not going to get rid of pork just to please muslims. You don't have to eat it, you eat what you like, just like I will not eat halal foods for ethical reasons.
