Musings on Other Cultures XVII: Obama Sheep Sacrifice

To commemorate President Obama's victory:

Forty-four sheep die for Obama: To celebrate Barack Obama's election as the 44th president of the United States, Kurdish villagers in Cavustepe, Turkey, slaughtered 44 sheep. Then they wiped sheep blood over their Obama posters to protect the president-elect from bad luck."
You are probably wondering how this square's with PETA's Mission Statement:

"PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry."

Perfectly compatible! Clearly, this slaughtering removes 44 sheep from facing a cruel death in factory farms, torture laboratories, clothing factories, and for "entertainment".

In fact, such political speech and religious expression is a human right, guaranteed the world over.

Fortunately, the Christianists were unable to stop this event.

However, I fear for what the Zionist settlers will do to these villagers as they inevitably metastasize across the entire Middle East and into Turkey. They will be the first to perish in the genocide.

Now this looks like a great culture:

Clearly superior.
