"Oh duh-duh- Dear
Why Do They Hate Me So?"
Piglet Banned In Britain

(I had to repost this, because I find it so damned funny. However, as my friend Always On Watch noted the other day, it may be funny, but it is also evidence of the dangerous level of intolerance in the Muslim community.

Look closely at the title of the book Piglet is reading. I think that from now on this will be the image I feature in any article on appeasement. It's perfect, isn't it?)

In Britain, they have banned public displays of Piglet, so as not to offend Muslims:

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.

Councillor Mahbubur Rahman, a practising Muslim, backed the ban. He said: “It’s a tolerance of people’s beliefs.”

Maybe if the British just crawl under a rock and play dead, the Muslims will leave them alone.
