Henriette Kjær of the Conservative Party is alarmed that children from Muslim families stay away from school in the days following the end of the Ramadan celebrations (many Danish schools have officially excused Muslim children on the actual day it ends)

She says:

"..society must take a stand when parents force religious customs onto their children which could damage their schooling and integration..."


I agree - kids should be at school!


Let's suspend Christmas, Easter, and other Christian holidays from now on.


By the way, do Jewish kids get days off for their special holidays?..


Oh, darn...I forgot - we like Jews now, right?...

Panzer Sturmgeschütz III, Ausf G
A nice late war photo (summer of 1943 is my guess)
It looks like Zimmerit anti-magnetic paste has been applied to the Schürtzen armour on the sides. Judging from the rough uneven texture it could have been done in the field. Also note the late war mantlet with rounded sides (often referred to as a "saukopf" mantlet, but this term was invented after WWII)
