How many political prisoners from other religious groups would regard missing ONE lunch as a hunger strike?! I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this 'sacrifice' for their principles! It would seem that human life is worth sacrificing in the name of Allah but missing more than one meal is about as far as they are prepared to go when it comes to a more 'personal' sacrifice. You couldn't make this stuff up!

No more Beslans.
