More Great Moments in Dubious Editing

"He flew in to the airport here in Makhachkala, where the plate-glass windows of the arrival hall frame a mosque with twin minarets stretching skyward." ("Search for Home Led Suspect to Land Marred by Strife")

Can't stand those downward-reaching minarets, myself.

From the same article:

"Dagestan is a place where the graffiti outside one mosque says, 'Victory or Paradise.'”

Now, we can't blame the editor for this one--unless graffiti artists have editors.  Still, I couldn't help but wonder: If those are the options, why would anyone choose victory?
