I just ran across the latest bend over backwards appeasement of Muslims sensibilities from
Dean's World Piglet Banned via
LGF British Dhimmitude Watch
Winnie the Pooh and Piglet are banned in Britain: Muslims win toy pigs ban. (Hat tip: Spiritualized.)
NOVELTY pig calendars and toys have been banned from a council office — in case they offend Muslim staff.
Workers in the benefits department at Dudley Council, West Midlands, were told to remove or cover up all pig-related items, including toys, porcelain figures, calendars and even a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.
Bosses acted after a Muslim complained about pig-shaped stress relievers delivered to the council in the run-up to the Islamic festival of Ramadan. Muslims are barred from eating pork in the Koran and consider pigs unclean.
Councilor Mahbubur Rahman, a practicing Muslim, backed the ban. He said: “It’s a tolerance of people’s beliefs.”
Let us leave aside for a moment the fact that the word tolerance means "The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others." and does NOT mean allowing the prejudices and intolerance of others to have practices and objects banned that have no real effect upon them.
Let us leave aside for the moment the fact that to my knowledge NO Jewish organization, synagogue or association have ever asked for something like this.
Let's look at the fact that Muslims are not forbidden to touch pigs (although eating them is forbidden), one merely has to wash one's hands afterwords
Looks like a terrible imposition to me asking them to look at something they find distasteful, let us sanitize our entire society?
However those who have backed this attempt at false tolerance, by limiting the practices of All to conform to the prejudices of the few have overlooked one very important item.
Dogs are also considered ritually impure by Muslims. In fact, according to this ruling, it's easier to remove the ritual impurity associated with pigs than that associated with dogs.
"With regard to how to cleanse oneself of pig-related impurity, some scholars are of the view that it should be washed seven times, one of which should be with earth, by analogy with dogs.
But the correct view is that pig-related impurity should be washed only once"
I mean Dogs are FAR more impure than Pigs
Does touching a dog make one's hand naajis (impure)?
The impurity of dogs is the greatest of animal impurities. The impurity of a dog can only be removed by washing seven times, one of which should be with earth. Even pigs, which the Qur’aan states are haraam and describes as an abomination (rijs) are not naajis (impure) to such an extent
So Piglet is a big deal and must be removed?
Guess what folks LASSIE is an even BIGGER DEAL to Muslims are we NOW going to remove all evidence of what our Society calls Man's Best Friend from view because to a Believing Muslim
The impurity of dogs is the greatest of animal
SMILE when you say that Partner!
And before you try to ban ME
better ask yourself ONE question
"Do you feel LUCKY Punk?"
Looks there is a backlash already and I have to say I LOVE it! LOL
Hattip to Tongue Tied
Pigs might fly ... but in this snort of motor?
All joking aside this has more serious implications than on the surface. I read this off a referal link to my website a lady in Yorkshire.

It?s not an isolated example either. There have been cases of butchers being told to take displays of pork out of their shop windows and one little old lady had to take her porcelain pig figures off her window will.
I might be getting a knock on the door myself soon, since I?ve put up a picture of Miss Piggy on my own blog.
and let?s not forget Theo Van Gogh? btw
anyone who has never actually viewed the Film for which he was butchered in the street?
I have a link to it here
