buriel2Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “When Muslims die, family members don’t turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body. In Islam, death is handled much differently.

Relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe. Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritual, known as Ghusl.

Before scrubbing the skin with soap and water, family members press down on the abdomen to excrete fluids still in the body. A mixture of camphor and water is used for a final washing. Then, family members dry off the body and shroud it in white linens.

Again, washing the bodies of the dead in this way is considered a collective duty for Muslims, especially in Muslim nations. Failure to do so is believed to leave the deceased “impure” and jeopardizes the faithful’s ascension into Paradise (unless he died in jihad; then no Ghusl is required).

Before the body is buried, Muslims attending the funeral typically pass a common bowl for use in ablution or washing of the face, feet and hands, compounding the risk of infection.

Though these customs are prescribed by Shariah law.”

Opinion: As Paul Harvey used to say, “Now you know the rest of the story.”

WHY-TH~1Stratrisks: “The Turkish government got a big slap in the face last week when the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted to turn down its application for a Security Council seat. In effect, the international community was rejecting Turkey’s hostile policies both at home and abroad. Why did Turkey lose in 2014 more than half the 151 votes it received in its successful bid for a Security Council seat in 2008?

The vigorous campaign by a large number of countries against Turkey’s membership: Armenia, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, Israel, Syria, and Saudi Arabia, among others.”

Opinion: Actually, I’m surprised. Recip Erdogan has gone out of his way to disparage the Jewish state since the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident. And the UN never misses a chance to call for resolutions against Israel.

Turkey has a date with Bible prophecy in the war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38:6) and breaking ranks with the UN and joining the Russia/China Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) would be a better fit.
