Several terrorist attacks have taken place,killing and injuring dozens of people in multiple countries in the first week and a half of Ramadan, which is the annual Muslim tradition of a month of fasting, volunteering to help other people, and growing closer to God. TheBlaze's Kal Elsebai, who is also a Muslim, explained what the religious tradition of Ramadan is really supposed to be about on Monday’s “Pat & Stu.”
“It’s a month of piety,” Kal described. Devout Muslims fast from food and abstain from sex during the day as a symbol of cutting oneself off from earthly pleasures for a time, he explained.
Islamic terrorists have increased their efforts during the first 10 days of Ramadan. On Saturday night, terrorists attacked people in London, running over pedestrians in a van and then getting out to run through crowds and stab as many people as possible.
Three people died, while 28 were injured. About a week ago, at least 27 people died in two terrorist car bomb attacks in Baghdad. One bombing took place outside an ice cream parlor where people were gathered after fasting for Ramadan.
