If the Muslim man stated his reason to remove the pig toy because of uncleanliness than clearly he is uneducated enough about his religion. There is nothing in the Holy book of Quran or Prophet Muhammad PBUH’s life examples that Muslim must demand removal of anything associated with pigs. Islam only prohibit Muslim to eat pigs, and demand all who claimed to be Muslim, of being humane to all creation of God.

That is not a sign of weakness.

We pray to you, O God, saying keep this nation under your care, and guide us in the way of justice and truth.” What’s pathetic about that?

So what’s the news? Muslims woman associated with lefty terrorist supporting group prays in house of lefty terrorist supporters for community-organiser-and-useful-idiot-in- chief? Meh.
