I have to point out that the piggy bank story is nothing but a media concoction and is not grounded in fact. See this report by Media Watch here in Australia. Stories like that only serve to vilify minorities and create racial tension where there isn't one. Sometimes I think bad reporting should be a criminal offense!

So, out of curiousity, what is your christmas lights comment based on?

Okay, call me uninformed, but I'm not making the connection between piggy banks and the offense that can be taken by the Muslim community. I don't mean to start a discussion about it either - just would like a bit of verification...

I think it's just that pigs aren't considered 'clean' in islam. Same as judaism right? I don't believe anyone actually took offense though. Just a whole bunch of really ordinary 'reporters' who copied each other's story without checking the sources.

I'd still like to know what the story is with the christmas lights, as I'm increasingly scepticle of these beat ups.

Totally agree. What nonsense.
