Protests Use of Photo in Controversy
Bellsouth ^ | 2/8/06 | Associated Press

Posted on 02/08/2006 2:11:12 PM PST by Dewy

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) - The Associated Press protested Wednesday the misleading inclusion of an AP photograph in a pamphlet purporting to show images offensive to Islam.

The picture shows a bearded man wearing fake pig ears, a pig nose, and a pink embroidered cap on his head. He was wearing the costume while participating in a pig-squealing contest at an annual festival in a farm village in southern France last summer.

The AP sent out the photo describing the pig-squealing contest on Aug. 14, 2005. The photo had no connection with Islam or the caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published in a Danish newspaper in September.

Is a lie a lie or the true?

A lie is the true when spoken, read, printed or viewed by Muslims.

And anything they say to us is a lie. And that's the true.

So the media knew the Muslim world would be enraged at the Abu Graib pictures and published them anyway since the outrage would be directed at our soldiers.

And now the media won't publish cartoons because the Muslim outrage would be directed at them. The media. Who, collectively, seem to be cowards.

My opinion of the French went up a couple of point on finding out they have pig-calling contests. Can't be ALL bad.

The AP (ayatollah press?)is trying to hide what happened here. While the hog calling prize photo was not one of the original 12 cartoons published by the Jylands-Posten.

It WAS included in the set of cartoons taken on the road by a group of Danish Imams four months later to whip up Muslim sentiment on the Arab street.

More of that fake but accurate business...you can check it out here at NeanderNews: http://www.neandernews.com/

Why should it be removed? It was created by a Muslim Imam to incite violence among his fellow Muslims.

Here is the original pic from michelle malkins website.

I opened the pic in photoshop to remove the noise. You can tell it was a fake because the dog is the same size as the man and the white of the dog is brighter than the other white objects in the room.

I heard Roger Hedgecock relate this story today on Rush's show. It seems the Insane Mullah from Denmark who started all this crap used this AP photo of an entirely unrelated pig squealing contest in France to further inflame the Muslims. But, It no longer matters that the pic had nothing to do with Muslims...they needed an excuse to nationalize this insanity wheather it was true or not. They are F'n Nutz!

A photograph of a Muslim woman having intercourse with a beagle? Are you certain? I think you are confused.

Well, its actually looks like a fake dog put on top of a mans body, then fake copy machine noise added to it with photoshop.

Now...which would be easier?
Faking such a photo?
Or simply going to Google and downloading such a photo?

Hey that's not all those crazy froggies are doing. I have a friend who lives in a small village outside of Toulouse. Each year at harvest time they have a festival and a series of competitions with the neighboring village. One of the competitions is a pig dressing contest. It is just as it sounds. A team from each village must catch and put clothes on a squealing, slippery pig. First village to present its pig fully dressed wins. Needless to say, there is alcohol involved.

Only as a means of outing the Imam for who he is.
