In usual the-West-is-the-Great-Satan rhetoric, Sudan's Clerics Council has called on young people not to celebrate Valentine's Day, calling it a Western holiday that has a corruptive influence. -- via MEMRI
[Yadda, yadda. These dudes need a new tune... Wait! What's this?]
Egyptian Cleric Hazem Shuman Warns Muslim Youth: Valentine's Day More Dangerous than AIDS, Ebola, and Cholera
[Now they're cooking with Pam!]
In a speech, Egyptian cleric Hazem Shuman called on Muslim youth to "confront [the] Valentine virus," saying that while "everything red will become more expensive" [lol] for the holiday, "one red thing will become cheaper: the blood of Muslims. All this is the result of the sins committed by Muslim youth."
[O.K., you're loosing us there, Bub. Better turn up the laugh meter...]
He warned, "In a few days time, a very dangerous virus will attack the body of the nation. What virus? Is it AIDS? No, something more dangerous. Something more dangerous than Ebola, which dissolves the human body, more dangerous than cholera, which killed half of Europe a few centuries ago... I have come tonight to warn all boys and girls about an extremely dangerous virus, which is about to attack the hearts of the nation’s youth, and to destroy our relations with God. We must confront this Valentine virus!"
[Valentine virus? LOL These clerics should do SNL. Virus. I wonder if it hurts...]
