I started by saying:

“Ahmed, do not give me all that crap about sacrificing your life to satisfy some vague reference in the Koran. Why do you think that such sacrifice is justified?”

He looked at me with a smile on his face. He does have a strong resemblance to George Clooney when George does not shave for a month, and is half asleep. He replied;

“You have your Ten Commandments and that gives you some absurd moral strength to believe that your religions are unique and everyone else’s are a simple derivation of some primitive witchcraft practice.”

“Not at all Ahmed. Faith is most important to all human beings; what we condemn is some of the extreme practices of some religions, like that sacrifice program some Islamists seem to prefer.”

“Listen, there is a reason for our sacrifice. I am going to tell you, but must ask you to keep quiet about it. Okay?’

“You have my word. Go on!”

“You see, here on earth we Muslims are forced to avoid alcoholic drinks so that we never learn the flavor of a Chambolle Mussigny wine, a cold beer, a real dry martini or a solid Vodka and Pineapple juice. Then we are not supposed to smoke, so we never taste the aroma of a Cuban Cohiba, especially after a great supper enhanced by great wine and warm Cognac. We are not allowed to dance in public especially with a female and worst of all, we can not make love to a woman unless she is married to us and arrives at the wedding as a virgin. Got all this?’

“Yup. I can understand now why you bastards want to blow yourselves up and hope there is a place somewhere with 72 virgins waiting for you!”

    These are the grandsons who will one day read my work and chuckle at the memory of a grandfather who was way off his rocker.
