As a student of history I do not buy the #Illridewithyou this is what is called a topos but it serves a purpose and that is to get the people of Australia to feel good about themselves but the real problem here is historicizing what most likely did not happen and I can assure you that if similar atrocity happens someone would come up with a similar story

I hope I'm making sense

Off-topic - but this needs verification. Islam keeps getting more and more warped the more you look into it - but this is beyond the pale. What does the arabic actually say?http://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2014/04/10/hadith-prophet-muhammad-kissed-the-penis-of-small-boys/

I hate to tell you but there are many traditions where we are told that Muhammad used to kiss al-Hasan on his lips and "suck" his tongue can you imagine what would happen to such man in this day and age? And by the way which Arabic sentence were your interested in being translated? Just let me know

and now to lighten things up a little - some comedy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=P7I0IAl88jg#t=1429

The amazing Qur'an! what can I tell you
