Ready For “Mecca” Time?

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Greenwich median time has unnecessarily enslaved billons of people around the world, especially Muslims, for far too long.

GOOD NEWS: Religion of Peace warriors are about to correct this wretched abuse with the proliferation of “Mecca Time.”

As reported, in part, at Reference 1:

“MECCA, Saudi Arabia (AFP) – Muslims around the world could be setting their watches to a new time soon when the world's largest clock begins ticking atop a soaring skyscraper in Islam's holiest city of Mecca.

“Saudi Arabia hopes the four faces of the new clock, which will loom over Mecca's Grand Mosque from what is expected to be the world's second tallest building, will establish Mecca as an alternate time standard to the Greenwich median.

The clock is targeted to enter service with a three-month trial period in the first week of the holy month of Ramadan on or about August 12, according to the Saudi state news agency SPA.

It boasts four glimmering 46 metre-across (151 feet) faces of high-tech composite tiles, some laced with gold, sitting more than 400 metres (1,320 feet) over the Holy Haram compound.

"Everyone is interested to see the clock, despite the lack of sufficient information about it, and its mechanism," said Mecca resident Hani al-Wajeeh.

"We in Mecca hope to be the world's central time zone, and not just have a clock to look at, to show off," he said”

OK, red-neck Americans, lose that Islamophobia and get with the new way! Its all about being on ASD,—that’s Allah Standard Time, mates!

It’s not that difficult, really.

Just set your clocks back to 750 AD so as to be in synch with Muslim culture and thinking!

Oh, and Happy Ramadan!
