Palestinian butchers slaughter cows on the first day of Eid al-Adha in Gaza City, Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010. Muslims worldwide celebrate Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of the Sacrifice on Nov. 16, by sacrificial killing of sheep, goats, cows or camels. The slaughter commemorates the biblical story of Abraham, who was on the verge of sacrificing his son to obey God's command, when God interceded by substituting a ram in the child's place..
