Rise in cattle thefts in south ahead of Muslim holiday

From Ynet News
The past two weeks have seen a sharp rise in thefts of cattle and sheep from farms in south Israel ahead of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha.
The Muslim holiday will be celebrated in late November. During Eid al-Adha - Arabic for "the Festival of the Sacrifice" - believers traditionally feast on lamb and beef.
A senior Border Guard officer told Ynet that the scope of cattle thefts by Palestinians this year is unprecedented. "We know that during the holiday they (Muslims) eat as much beef as possible, but it is not clear why cattle thefts are up compared to last year."
During a raid which took place Sunday on the Palestinian village of Idna, located in the South Mount Hebron area, IDF and Border Guard forces found two calves that had been stolen just two days earlier from Moshav Bitzaron.
Three other heads of cattle belonging to the moshav were apparently butchered or sold on the Palestinian market.
The owner of the farm at Bitzaron, Nissim Raiten, said, "These thefts severely harm our livelihood," adding that the Palestinian thieves managed to crawl under the fence surrounding his farm.

- still not sure but I think it's time to do the opposite of what was commanded by Napoleon in a letter to Josephine arriving in advance of his return after a long absence: "Don't wash out your mouth. Whatever. For ever."

The Laird's* Larder
 
Rumour has it some "Palestinians" were goaded to rustling by their neighbour's taunts of "All Hajj and no cattle."
 
In a like manner, Highlander wives are said to have berated and belittled their husbands when the larder was bare.
Translated (badly) from the Scottish:
 
My dear Podgorny**
Don't care if they hang us
I must suborn ye
Steal thee namesake, Angus
 
Also see the Nixon SecDef who threatened to give the Soviet Premier a "wedgie" ala the sequel to Bergman's The Seventh Seal, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey:
 
 
"Melvin" Laird - rarely confused with the "Muslim Liar":
 
 
And, "The Great Game":
