Palestinian Muslims, in an apparent desire to draw some of the lucrative “news of people acting loony” market away from Christians, are going to great lengths to see the ‘God’ lamb. Seems a lamb was born with a pattern in its wool that appears to spell out the word ‘Allah’ on its side.
Owner Yahya Atrash, from the West Bank town of Hebron, told Reuters the animal was born on Monday, when militant leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin was killed.
He told Reuters the timing was “clear evidence of God’s existence”.
“This sheep was born in memory of the martyrdom of the great hero Sheikh Ahmed Yassin,” the farmer said.
“We hope that the birth of this sheep is a lesson for the living in the same way… the martyrdom is a lesson for us here in Palestine.”
Many Palestinians travelled through several Israeli army checkpoints to view the lamb, who some claim also has “Muhammad” written on his other flank, after the Prophet.
But of course it does. God wouldn’t waste good advertising space by only using one side of the animal as a living billboard.
