Anne Owers has banned the flag of England from prisons because muslim prisoners might feel threatened by the guards wearing pins of the St. Georges Cross, which is the Flag of England, as the flag was used during the Crusades. As we all know, muslims did not fare well during the crusades. The pins were sold as a fundraiser for a cancer charity.
She immediately found a supporter in the name of Chris Doyle who is the Director of the "Council for Arab-British Understanding."
"Muslim or Arab prisoners could take umbrage if staff wore a red cross badge. It's also got associations with the far-right. Prison officers should be seen to be neutral." - Chris Doyle
If this Flag is so offensive to muslims, then why stop at banning it from Prisons, what about all those muslims in the country that are subjected to the presence of this flag everywhere. Why stop at the flag? Muslims are offended by pork, so why not ban pork products from the country? Oh wait, other insaniacs have already started the de-pigging process:
"Alas, the United Kingdom's descent into dhimmitude is beyond parody. Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council (Tory-controlled) has now announced that, following a complaint by a Muslim employee, all work pictures and knick-knacks of novelty pigs and "pig-related items" will be banned." - Mark Steyn, Opinion.Telegraph
I wonder, did muslims eat pork before Mohamed? Were they muslims before Mohamed? Is it possible, with today's technology, that pork can be clean for muslim consumption?
