Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha by slaughtering sheep, goats, cows and camels to commemorate Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail on God's command.

On the first day of the festival on Friday, families in Gaza and the West Bank traditionally visit the graves of loved ones, reciting Quranic passages and handing out date and nut cookies prepared especially for Eid.

I mean no disrespect for Islam but a word about Eid al-Adha is in order: To us, this holiday is based on a false, duplicated situation from All_h's command to Abraham to sacrifice Isaac in our sacred Torah (Genesis) some 2600 years before The Prophet Muhammad and the sacred Qu'ran were ever revealed. In our Torah, there is no evidence whatsoever for believing All_h ever commanded Abraham to sacrifice Ishmael. The parallels are obvious. Nonetheless, I wish all Muslims a Good Eid al-Adha.

Maan also did not mention about the hundreds of thousands starving in Palestine.They have no money to buy food.

#2 As Torah is G-d's word revealed to Moses and Qur'an is the word of All-h revealed to the Prophet peace be upon him, many years later, it would seem that G-d decided for some reason NOT to reveal to Moses Abraham's sacrifice of his first-born Ishmael but to keep it as a special message for his servant Mohammed peace be upon him. So it can't really be called "a false duplicated situation" because it's not the sort of thing All-h/G-d would get wrong. Happy Eid mubarak from me as well.
