Muslims in Support of the Pig

Bring out the flying pig who, incidentally, has unexpected support.

A new Muslim organization is coming out with a highly untraditional campaign, demanding better care for Danish hogs, which according to the organization suffer unnecessarily from grueling transports and castration without anesthesia.

Imam Abdul Wahid Pedersen [ed. one of Denmark’s more radical imams], who heads the organization “Muslims for rights of Danish pigs”, together with four other Muslims says that it’s a disgrace for our whole nation that something like this takes place.

Muslims are forbidden to eat pork due to a specific ban in the Koran, but that does not mean that Muslims can’t fight for the rights of impure animals, thinks Pedersen. He says that even hogs who are going to the slaughter are part of God’s creation and require a humanistic – not hoggish – treatment and therefore they will now express their great indignation about such outrage in reader letters in newspapers.

Pedersen doesn’t fear the anger of Muslims worldwide who can’t see the reason for championing an impure animal. He says that there might be several who react, but he declares that even if Muslims don’t eat pork, they want to show that Muslim can discuss things other than veils and Islamization, and that they are also concerned about completely normal problems on Earth such as global warming and animal welfare.

While it is nice to see a Muslim group concerned for the welfare of pigs, I would prefer to see the emergence of Muslim groups concerned for the welfare of Jews.

After all, we are treated far worse than pigs, especially at the hands of Muslims. And we are apparently related.
