Now that the Islamic fundamentalist terrorist group HAMAS has taken over the government of the Palestinian Authority, Buthina and Nadim Khoury are worried that their beer company, Taybeh Beer, may be outlawed.
They’re not worried about terrorists running their government or killing more innocent civilians with homicide bombs. Nope. They’re worried about their bottom line, USA Today reports.
Since Islam forbids the consumption of alcohol (not that this stopped the 9/11 hijacker hypocrites from drinking at the Pink Pony, gambling, and patronizing prostitutes), Taybeh Beer is worried that HAMAS will outlaw them. Taybeh is the only Palestinian brewery.
So the Taybeh owners are bragging about how both their bottle and label are green–the color of Islam and HAMAS (and the color of the headbands worn by the 9/11 hijackers). Big deal. So are Heineken’s.
Taybeh is planning to make non-alcoholic beer to get around this. One problem, though: Islam forbids even non-acloholic beer, says HAMAS lawmaker Muhammad Abu T’eir. “I would never drink anything called ‘beer,'” he told USA Today.
Taybeh has already lost 80% of its market anyway because its biggest customers were Israelis . . . before Palestinians started blowing them up.
We, at DebbieSchlussel.com, don’t particularly feel for the Taybeh Beer crew. Because we just couldn’t help but notice the smiling photo of late terrorist-in-chief Yasser Arafat peaking out from behind Taybeh owner Nadim Khoury on his office bulletin board (see far left on picture, above). And Taybeh Beer is the official beer of the Electronic Intifadah (Palestinian Terrorist Uprising).
That gives new meaning to Taybeh’s slogan, “Drink Palestinian.” We envision not beer, but the flowing innocent blood of the smiling Arafat’s victims.
No Taybeh Beer in the Palestinian Authority? So sad, too bad.
