The cartoon's headline: "The Feast of Immolation"* On the right, in Arabic: "The Islamic world's attitude?"
*Eid al-Adha, The Feast of Immolation, also called The Festival of Sacrifice, is a three-day festival and the concluding act of pilgrimage. It commemorates the Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, in obedience to God. After the morning of communal prayer, Muslims slaughter an animal to commemorate the angel Gabriel's substitution of a lamb as Abraham's sacrificial obligation. The meat is shared with family members, neighbors and the poor and needy. This major holiday is one of the two main Islamic festivals and is observed whether or not one is on pilgrimage.
