Imagine you're the producer for BBC News. In an historic court case, Abu Hamza gets sent down for seven years for incitement to murder. It's your top story, so who do you turn to for some in-depth analysis? Why, none other than a spokesman for CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations of course!

Yet another example of our media looking for answers from the wrong people - what exactly does a representative of CAIR know about the state of Islam in Britain today?

When questioned as to whether locking up Hamza would prevent further incitements to hate from radical preachers, the CAIR spokesman pointed out that incitement to hate was unacceptable regardless of race or religion (true enough) just as the publication of the Danish depictions of Mohammed has shown.

Annoyingly I didn't catch the man's name, but he wins the prize for Moral Equivaliser of the Week hands down.

In his warped universe, drawing cartoons of Mohammed is as morally reprehensible as calling for Jews and infidels to be slaughtered.



Looks like one the fake images of Mohammed comes from a pig-squealing contest in France. You couldn't make it up.

Do these two photos look similiar?

They should because they are the same! No, not a satire of Mohammed nor any other sacred Islamic figure but a photo of Jacques Barrot, a pig squealing contestant at the French Pig-Squealing Championships in Trie-sur-Baise's annual festival. NeanderNews discovered this photo, taken by Bob Edme of AP, posted on an August 15, 2005 AP story seen here on MSNBC's website.
