Santa Claus Stoned in Kuwait

Playing Santa can be surprisingly profitable in the free world where professional Santas can make as much as $175 an hour [2] at malls and shopping centers. But unfortunately in the Muslim world, Santas get paid in rocks thrown at their heads and the reindeer have to be equipped with sacks of chaff to be dropped when targeting by SAMs.

There’s no way of getting around it. Stoning is just popular in the Muslim world. More popular than Santa Claus [3] even when he’s carrying a bag of gifts [4].

There were dashed expectations on the faces of children on New Year’s Eve. A man dressed as a Santa Claus began distributing gifts to Bedouin children surrounding him in the square, but this dream turned into a nightmare as he was showered with stones and gravel until the police arrived, dispersed the crowd and conveyed him to his home.

The lesson to be learned from this is that while there might be places where being Santa Claus is a good idea, the Muslim world is not one of them.

Unfortunately Obama has yet to learn that lesson and is sending 10 F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks to Muslim Brotherhood [5] run Egypt… all the better for them to intercept and shoot down Santa’s sled with.
