Pig heads at Islamic school site
Last Updated: Wednesday, 28 November 2007
Two pig heads have been stuck on metal stakes outside the site of a planned Islamic school in Australia's largest city.
A passer-by reported that the heads had been placed near an Australian flag at an empty site in Camden, a suburb of Sydney.
Pigs are considered unclean by Muslims and the act was described as a "display of hatred".
Detective Inspector Paul Albury said police were seeking information about a person who used a citizen's band radio to claim responsibility for the pig heads.

He said: "This insult and display of hatred is not something any fair-minded Australian would approve of."
Islam is a fast-growing religion in secular Australia and has about 400,000 followers out of a population of roughly 21 million people.
Tensions have occasionally risen in recent years, most notably days of rioting between Caucasian and Middle Eastern youths at Sydney's Cronulla beach in late 2005.
Jeremy Bingham, a spokesman for the Quranic Society that is planning to build the school, said the incident was "a bit sad, frankly".
He said he did not think it was representative of the feelings of most people in Camden.

Besides, we’re all quite educated in the matter these days. Moslems are not supposed to eat pork. As long as none of ‘em were gnawing on the pig’s heads no harm was done.
Geez... 3 seconds.
New Prime Minister definetly not happy.
My god, there’s a Resistance Movement in Oz!

Let's not bring up the beheadings, stonings, and homicide bombings that the muslims relish.
Did they name the pig heads Mohamed 1 and Mohamed 2?
Yep, I’d like to get a female dog and name her “Mohammad” but that would be unfair to the dog...
Mo ham head please.
Pig races work well in Katy, Texas. LOL

Every country in the West needs to collectively ban Islam as a death cult.
