after Saturday comes Sunday

A translation of a rare Arabic phrase attributed to militant Islamic extremists, meaning that Jews (who celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday) will be killed first, followed by Christians (whose Sabbath is on Sunday). We weren't sure of the safety of the area, but when we saw the phrase "After Saturday Comes Sunday" graffitied on the wall, we knew we should leave.
