Iraqis are complaining about their first-ever weekend break, and some high-school students even went to class Saturday to protest a decision introducing a second weekly day off that coincides with the Jewish Sabbath.
It's not that the Iraqis do not want time off — they just want the extra day moved to Thursday.
"We don't want Saturday! It's a Jewish holiday!" students chanted as they marched in protest last week to the governor's office in Baqouba, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad.
A high-school student pulled out a hand grenade and started waving it, and police fired into the air to disperse the crowd. At least three students reportedly were injured in the ensuing scuffle.
This is precisely the same mentality that decided it would be a great ideaa to put Israeli colors in the new Iraqi flag.
What sort of fucking idiot tries to unilaterally impose sweeping changes on an entire alien society - without actually bothering to learn a single blessed thing about that society first?
They actually think that every fart emanating from their nether regions is the stuff of profundity.
If they just flipped a frigging coin, they'd be right half the time. Instead, they are batting 0-for-life, and using nothing but their own natural-born brains.
