At least 717 people taking part in the Hajj pilgrimage have been killed in a stampede near the Islamic holy city of Mecca, officials in Saudi Arabia say.

Hundreds of people were injured in the incident at Mina, which occurred as two million pilgrims were taking part in the Hajj’s last major rite.

They converge on Mina to throw stones at pillars representing the devil. Preparations for the Hajj were marred when a crane collapsed at Mecca’s Grand Mosque this month, killing 109 people.

The Saudi civil defence directorate said on Twitter that 4,000 personnel had been sent to the scene of Thursday’s stampede, along with more than 220 emergency and rescue units. The injured are being taken to four hospitals in the area.

My comment:

The BBC calls Mecca a “holy city”. When the editor’s do this, they present Islam as a true religion.

Why do the British National broadcaster do this?

What made this city “holy” for the more than 700 dead Muslims?

Would it no be more correct to brand the city of Mecca as the devil’s nest?

Do all Muslims understand that they are invited to Mecca to worship a “holy stone” who is suppose toabsorb their sins?

Plese read this link:

Isaiah 5: 20

Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil,
who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
    and sweet for bitter.

When Western media elevate the city of Mecca, we surrender to Islamic ideology. It is a sin, and it is shameful. The religion of Islam reject that God has a begotten Son. Muhammad’s message to the World is that Jesus the Messiah was a liar. The Jewish leadership was correct in rejecting the divinity of Jesus of Nazareth.

This is the verdict: light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

Shame on the BBC. The broadcaster is a part of the massive dhimmi campaign in post-Christian Europe.
