The greatest mockery of the Hajj would be if Crusaders circling around the
Kabal Ka'ba [×] made it fall like the walls of Jericho.
I was thinking more along the lines of a Templar missile with a 15 MT yield neutron weapon[/b], cobalt salted if possible, being detonated during the
haij Hajj. [....] Deus Vult [*]!
I'd prefer that a low-yield neutron weapon
be used [†], which would blow away the Islamic masses on the hajj
, but avoid radioactive contamination to nearby uninvolved populations. And to avoid radioactive risk to fire-fighting aircraft, who would be assigned to fill the surrounding Islamic structure with pork fat
--but only after its culinary value has been exhausted.
Note ×: We Catholics will be arguing various Islamic issues for the next many years, so we might as well get accustomed to learning 1 of the accepted Romanized
spellings for their words.
: I repeatedly read the root [**] inflected thus, but it's present indicative mood
. Shouldn't that be in subjunctive mood
instead, expressing a wish (implying Eng. "if"), as Deus "velit"
(3rd-person inferred from 1st-person "velim"
)? But I digress.
Note **: The irregular verb volō, velle, voluī
Note †: Please,
Lord, U.S. Pres. Carter wasn't so naïvely
as to have actually eliminate
weapons or research programs. Because the Russians and Chinese sure as Hades
wouldn't have eliminated either of theirs.
