The price of appeasement

From the FairFax Digital...

Three teenage Christian girls were beheaded and a fourth was seriously wounded in a savage attack on Saturday by unidentified assailants in the Indonesian province of Central Sulawesi.

The girls were among a group of students from a private Christian high school who were ambushed while walking through a cocoa plantation in Poso Kota subdistrict on their way to class, police Major Riky Naldo said.

The area is close to the provincial capital of Poso, about 1000 kilometres northeast of Jakarta.

Naldo said the heads of the three dead victims were found several kilometres from their bodies.

Indonesian authorities and the American Press are pretending there's no way of knowing whether Moslem extremists did this, is spite of warnings by Moslems just a few weeks ago that violence was inevitable. The ultra-Liberal New York Times, of course, took the tack that now Moslems (who they pretend had nothing to do with it) will fear equal reprisals from Christians. Right.

Meanwhile...

From NewsMax...

British banks are prohibiting piggy banks because they may offend some Muslims. 

The United Kingdom's Halifax and NatWest banks have banned the ubiquitous time-honored symbol of saving from being given to children or used in their advertising, the British paper Daily Express reports.

Muslims do not eat pork, as Islamic culture views the pig to be an impure animal.

Salim Mulla, secretary of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, endorsed the bank initiative.

"This is a sensitive issue and I think the banks are simply being courteous to their customers,” he said.

This latest from the world of the politically correct follows the recent banning of novelty pig calendars from a U.K. council office — in case they offend Muslim staff.

Moslems have been protesting other uses of uses of pigs including the character “Piglet” from the Winnie the Pooh cartoon.

In related news...

A British toy manufacturer announced late yesterday that they would be introducing a new line of toys and novelties geared toward not offending Moslems. Included will be the “beheaded, Christian school-girl bank” and the “bullet-riddled, Jewish-toddler doll”. Sales are expected to be high with orders coming in from many American journalists as well.
