OH woah woah woah, Best Buy has wished Muslims a Happy Eid al-Adha, the Islamic festival of sacrifice during which Muslims are traditionally encouraged to donate to charity?? Uhh nice try. Free Republic will boycott Best Buy now, just cold won’t shop there anymore, maybe it’ll even go out of business, right? And when all those Best Buy employees lose their jobs, terrorism/Muslims will be FINITIO.

And why did the Muslims hijack that polka dot and fly it into the SHOP THANKSGIVING rectangle? Does anyone on Free Republic have a copy of the Koran and/or the instructions to one of Best Buy’s terror electronics handy? Please look this up.

A-ha! An inside job! But the Islamics have the Freepers surrounded on their own turf!! The Muslims have also infiltrated America’s mosques.

We’ll boycott the Mosques, too. Go to Sears or whatever instead.

[Free Republic]

(Happy Eid al-Adha, Festival of 9/11, to tipster “Nicholas D.”)

    There are plenty of other reasons not to deal with Best Buy – like because they suck. So in this scenario of Best Buy, muslins and freepers, whose enemy is whose enemy is whose friend, etc.?

    What’s worse is: I have it on good authority that Best Buy is going to boycott Christmas this year. Seriuosly. They’re even closing their stores Dec. 20-24 in an effort to smear the name of Baby Jesus.

    Don’t believe me? Fine. If Best Buy doesn’t boycott Christmas then you can be all: “I told you so” on Dec. 26th. But until then… well… you just watch!

    Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎ ‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā) “Festival of Sacrifice” or “Greater Eid” is a holiday celebrated by Muslims (including the Druze) worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael to a large, white whale.

    You know, it seems like they begin the War on Christmas earlier every year. I swear, I went down to the mall for some back-to-school sale to get sneakers for kids, and they had War on Christmas decorations all up already. I hadn’t even brought in the garden hose yet! They’re playing their War on Christmas music everywhere, and they’ve got all their War on Christmas tinsel and ornaments dangling from the atrium and the food court, and they’ve got all their War on Christmas trees and merchandise in the windows and their little War on Christmas fliers with coupons already.

  • LowerdPeninsula

    So, Best Buy expands to cynically exploiting the Muslim Thanksgiving, like corporations are wont to do, these days, with all religious holidays, and these dumb-and/or-fat-fucks have a fit?

  • yx9

    The whole point of Christmas is that God gave the PERFECT gift to mankind: his Son. This gift was the lamb of God to pay for all the sins of mankind. The reason that it has become a big holiday for stores is because, in honor of the gift GOD GAVE US, we give gifts to one another. Retailers take advantage of this charitable giving to get back in the black and make their profits. No one, not God, nor Christians, has a problem with commerce. But people aren’t buying gifts for the eid al-adha season, they’re buying it for the Christmas season, in honor of the Messiah.

    Also, faith in and of itself is worthless. It is the OBJECT of that faith which is important. Eid al-adha supposedly commemorates Abraham’s near sacrifice of Ishmael, but the original jewish scriptures say that it was Isaac, not Ishmael, that was to be sacrificed. ~700 years after Jesus came, some guy named Muhammed altered the truth and claimed it was Ishmael, just like he also claimed that Jesus (who they called Isa) didn’t really die on the cross. Islam changes the basic facts about the events of jewish and christian history. The fact of the matter is that Muhammed is a liar, and the religion he created is a lie.

    If you want to embrace all faiths, it is only because you think none of them are accurate, i.e. you are godless and unsaved. Freedom is great, and it is great to live in a country that has freedom to worship whomever you please. But not all faiths lead to salvation. By its very nature, the muslim faith is a works-based salvation with its 5 pillars. If you do certain things and keep certain laws, supposedly allah will save you. But no one can perfectly keep all the laws, which is why Christmas is such a joyous time, because God gave Jesus to us, the perfect Christmas gift, so that sinners could be saved by faith in him.

    Islam twists history to suit its own purposes. Abraham’s near-sacrifice of Isaac, his only son, was foreshadowing God’s coming sacrifice of His only Son Jesus. The gospel is good news because it means we are not required to keep a set of strict laws and ordinances in order to inherit eternal life. Forgiveness of sins comes by faith in 1 man whom God gave as a gift to mankind: Jesus. Just because Muhammed came along ~700 years later and denied and twisted the basic facts of history doesn’t mean that Islam has any basis in reality.

    To those who think all religions are a lie, what do you plan to do when you, like 100% of people in the world, die? Everyone dies. Christmas is symbolic of God’s pardoning of our sin, through the crucifixion and death of his innocent son Jesus on the cross. He that was without sin died for us who are sinners. It is right for anyone who fears and loves God to be angry at Islam and Muhammed for denying the gospel and drawing people away from saving faith in Christ. But our war is not against flesh and blood, it is against spiritual forces. It is not a war fought with guns and knives, but with prayer and fasting.

    If Best buy and gap and other godless institutions of the world want to draw people from all faiths into their stores by pandering to every religion, that’s their choice and they will benefit or suffer from that choice financially as some muslims go there or other Christians boycott them. We Christians do not expect the world to behave like the church. The church is separated from the world, sanctified, and born again.

    To those who are furious, I would remind you of Jesus saying “let he who is without sin, cast the first stone”. We are all sinners. The anger about this eid al-adha thing is that Christmas is unique in that God gave us a Gift and so we give gifts to others. What good has islam ever brought to the world? They have done nothing more than try to put another yoke, another law, on the necks of those who are unable to keep the law. No one can perfectly keep the law except for Jesus, which is why his sacrifice on the cross was so important.

    If you want to live forever, repent and be baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
