Rock Throwing Muslim Alert

It's become an annual ritual for Muslims to die in the annual ritual of Hajj. Like usual this year doesn't disappoint with 244 Muslims dying in this year's festivities. This is the best part:

After the sleepless night of prayer following the sermon, pilgrims gathered pebbles to throw at the pillars. Each threw seven times, chanting "bismillah" ("In the name of God") and "Allahu Akbar" ("God is Great").

Calling America "the greatest Satan," Egyptian pilgrim Youssef Omar threw pebbles at one pillar where someone scrawled "USA."

Maybe next time, they'll get some sleep and try to kill someone other than their fellow Muslims. I take that back, let them kill each other.
