Scotland Jails Man for 10 Months for Putting Bacon on Mosque Doors
FrontPage Mag ^ | 09/19/2013 | Daniel Greenfield

Freedom! No sorry. You’re thinking of a different Scotland.

The Chairman of the Edinburgh and Lothian Regional Equality Council, Foysol Choudhury MBE, is delighted that a 25-year-old Edinburgh man has been given a 10-month jail sentence for offending Muslims, and declared: “All religions are to be respected.”

Stilwel admitted breach of the peace. Speaking after sentencing, Choudhury said:

“I really welcome the sheriff’s decision to impose a jail sentence in this case. We live in what is always called a ‘multi-cultural society’ and I think we need to work together and prove that is true.”

“We need to respect everyone’s religion or culture, whatever it may be. Hopefully a sentence like this will act as a lesson to show people that all religions need to be respected.”

Sending someone to jail doesn’t teach respect. It intimidates. Which is what he really means.

The court heard that Islam prohibits its followers from consuming pork products made and that Stilwel’s actions “offended people at the mosque”.

Following the “attack”, Stilwel admitted to police officers that he was aware his behaviour could cause offence.

Sentence on Stilwel, an inmate at the city’s Saughton jail, had been deferred by Sheriff Liddle to obtain reports about the offender’s character. He told Stilwel that a prison sentence was “inevitable”.

Do they (the Scots) pursue and prosecute with the same enthusiasm equally against crimes committed against Christian faith?

10 months for that?

How much do Muslim men get in jail for raping their 8 year old “wife”?

Mmmmm, bacon.

I love the sound of Islamics’ heads exploding in the morning. Seems a perfect analogy to the emergence of the sun from behind a dark cloud.

But now, the dark cloud once again threatens to blot blue skies everywhere.

Unfortunately, “Scottish law” has been largely displaced by Shari’ah law. The tyranny of the minority has overtaken all traditions once held by the fierce and truculent warriors of the Highlands.

By any other name, this is colonization, and it is by folks who have no culture of providing a path to elevation of wealth or learning. Nobody benefits by a retreat to the 7th Century.

Ridiculous sentence. He could have been given a suspended sentence or even an earlier caution instead of a formal charge.

Stilwel should have said that his religion dictated placement of bacon on mosque doors as a condition of salvation.

As stupid as this story is, to say Islam has conquered Scotland is drivel.

0.9% of Scotland is Muslim. And Scottish Islam has been free of the extremism we have seen fester in England.

Why does no one put bacon at my door?

I am not picky, I will take bacon, ham, pork chops, sausage, ribs (baby back and St Louis,) tenderloin.... but no one leaves them at my door.

This is most unfair.

Now there is a text book case of asymmetric warfare, using whatever weapons can be found and adapted to attack your enemy.

Hmmm. I read somewhere recently that the U.S. is the biggest producer/user of bacon in the world.

If Muslims’ souls are at risk if they become unclean by contact with pork, then the U.S. population has weapons of mass destruction in their hands for guerrilla warfare?

Don't you know. Islam is conquering everywhere. The sky is falling. We're all going to convert or die. Panic. Panic.

On this issue, the majority of people on this site watch too much TV and read too much Debbie Schlussel.

I thought of that but I had to stimulate the call to prayer. The only thing I could come up with was tying a string to the cat’s tail and giving it a yank. That made the cat quite cross.

Sheriff Liddle has no doubt received his politically correct medal. It certainly beats having to present his posterior up in the air five times a day though.

It is many years since I visited Killiecrankie Pass in Scotland. One of Scotland's religious and civil wars in which Bonnie Dundee gained his greatest triumph. At the height of the battle Dundee was felled by a musket ball.

Come fill up my cup, come fill up my can
Come saddle my horses and call out my men
Unhook the West Port and let us gae free
For it's up with the bonnets o' Bonnie Dundee

Irrespective of the cause, John Graham of Claverhouse; Viscount Dundee was willing to die for his beliefs. Today some officials in the UK are willing to persecute their own countrymen for someone else's cause.

“We need to respect everyone’s religion or culture”

Especially Islam above all others is what that means.

Ridiculous sentence. He could have been given a suspended sentence or even an earlier caution instead of a formal charge.

If only he had raped a student he’d only get three months.
