I suppose we can blame this cruelty on the ‘Israeli Separation Wall.’ Or how about saying this is a direct result of the long history of American Imperialism in Islamic lands.
How about we say, these are two Jews trying to give us Muslims a bad name, eh? That should work? What do you say?
Or, we could say this is ‘Indian-occupied Kashmir’, the donkey is Muslim and the two men are Hindu Pundits. That just might work.
