Score one for the anti-Valentine's Day Muslims

I mentioned a couple of absurd stories about how Saudi Arabia's religious police crack down on any semblance of Valentine's Day celebrations in the Kingdom. Here's one from Jordan where the traditionalists made their point in a much more humorous way.

Even though Jordan has no official problem with Valentine's Day, and Jordanian florists do a bang-up business every year, some Jordanian students in Irbid lampooned women who dress in red on February 14th.

They dressed up donkeys with red clothing, hearts and flowers, and paraded them up the street.

If only all Muslim conservatives would use humor to fight their battles!
