Muslim Hatred in Sydney

I could only imagine how much press something like this would get back in the US:

TWO pigs’ heads have been dumped at the controversial site of a proposed Islamic school in Sydney’s southwest.

The pigs’ heads, planted on wooden stakes on the Camden site, with the Australian flag draped between them, are believed to be in protest of the Muslim school proposal.

The proposed school, for up to Muslim 1200 students on 15ha and wedged between market gardens and pastures, has been highly controversial.

A public meeting held in Camden earlier this month attracted more than 2000 people opposed to the development.

The local council also received several thousand written objections during the planning approval process.

The chairman of the Community Relations Commission, Stepan Kerkyasharian, said today’s "outrage" revealed what lay behind the opposition to the school.

"This insult and display of hatred is not something any fair-minded Australian would approve of," Mr Kerkyasharian said.  [The Daily Telegraph]

Here in Australia this article is the only mention of this incident I have heard of yet, which is surprising considering the obvious bigotry of this act.
