Raise the terror alert, it's another muslim "holy" day

Ashura is here and the season of self flagellation has begun. Ashura, a muslim "holy" day, commemorates the death of the Imam Hussein at the Battle of Karbala in 680 AD. As a faithful male muslim you begin by sharpening your sword, find your way to the public square and proceed to beat yourself to a bloody pulp. It's also appropriate to have your best burka clad girl there to carry an extra sword.
Ah....The religion of peace.
