    Every event in islam is accompanied by a body count. Funny, that.

    • Allah works in mysterious ways.

        Be honest B.C. If a billion idiots kept hoisting their arses in your face five times a day, you’d probably want to off a few as well.

          And to wear a heavy duty gas mask.

    • These stampedes with deaths happen almost every year going back decades.

      • John

        About ten years ago there was a stampede in which a couple of thousand were trampled to death.

      • They’re not very invested in crowd control, are they?

        Horrible accident. 717 people killed? That’s nothing to celebrate.

        Just gone and got myself a case of beer a great tub of popcorn. Going to sit back and enjoy the show. Unfortunately I can’t find any bookies out there who are offering odds on the final tally which is a pity as I would be quite happy to have a punt in order to spice up my anticipation.

    When the Middle East erupts that should be the target of a half dozen drones.

    Now why didn’t I think of it.. oh wait.. I just did! Those refugees who DEMAND which country they want to live in, who DEMAND which foods they should be given to eat, who DEMAND 2 OR $3,000 PER MONTH who demand housing, who rape girls in their camps… Send them all to Mecca! May they and their demands be trampled.. Ins’Allah!

    Emir of Mecca blames black guys ……raaaciss

    Saudi-owned al-Arabiya TV reported that the head of the central Hajj committee, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, had blamed the stampede on “some pilgrims with African nationalities”.
