Freedom! No sorry. You’re thinking of a different Scotland.

The Chairman of the Edinburgh and Lothian Regional Equality Council, Foysol Choudhury MBE, is delighted that a 25-year-old Edinburgh man has been given a 10-month jail sentence for offending Muslims, and declared: “All religions are to be respected.”

Stilwel admitted breach of the peace. Speaking after sentencing, Choudhury said:

“I really welcome the sheriff’s decision to impose a jail sentence in this case. We live in what is always called a ‘multi-cultural society’ and I think we need to work together and prove that is true.”

“We need to respect everyone’s religion or culture, whatever it may be. Hopefully a sentence like this will act as a lesson to show people that all religions need to be respected.”

Sending someone to jail doesn’t teach respect. It intimidates. Which is what he really means.

The court heard that Islam prohibits its followers from consuming pork products made and that Stilwel’s actions “offended people at the mosque”.

Following the “attack”, Stilwel admitted to police officers that he was aware his behaviour could cause offence.

Sentence on Stilwel, an inmate at the city’s Saughton jail, had been deferred by Sheriff Liddle to obtain reports about the offender’s character.  He told Stilwel that a prison sentence was “inevitable”.

At an earlier hearing, the court heard from depute procurator fiscal Ian Wallace who said police were called to the mosque following the attack.

He told the court that police later traced Stilwel and arrested him.

Fortunately there was no other crime in Scotland, so police could safely hunt the bacon bandit.

Meanwhile we learn that Salah al Bandar, the former Liberal Democrat councillor who was one of several Islamists who issued death threats against Muslim apostate Nahla Mahmoud, has been cleared of any wrong-doing by his party.

Well bacon is much more serious than death threats.

    One weeps. WHAT has happened to the Brits?

    I assume the art show with the Virgin Mary done, as I recall, in elephant dung, was not displayed in Britain. One hesitates to think what would happen to the artist and to the show’s curator. A life sentence without parole? And “Pi*s Christ?” Public hanging.

    Oh, wait. that would be Christians who are offended. Never mind.

    What we are witnessing is cowardice disguised as open-mindedness. Presumably the schools in Britain are indoctrinating the same drivel as ours are. Where is William Wallace when they need him?

    of course Foysol Choudhury doesn’t mention that his religion of Islam doesn’t tolerate other religions…

    Orwell must have been very prescient to make the pigs more equal than others.

  • Mubin Shaikh

    Okay so if a Muslim puts a piece of meat on the Church door with the label, “halal” on it – you’ll support it as free speech?

    Doubt it.

    It’s bigotry – plain and simple. And a waste of bacon.

    • ziggy zoggy

      There is nothing bigoted about hating you islamopithecines. Nothing and nobody has earned it more. Not socialists, communists, rats or cockroaches.

        I’m glad you left out fire ants ;-)

          Noooooo … that’s the best part! *sniff* :O(

      • DB1954

        I dunno, I think the communists are a realllllly close second.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      People in free societies are not jailed for bigotry. At worst he should have been required to clean the knobs. But he could have defended himself by referring to it as a political statement.

      Not that it would work since Muslims were offended. I’m talking about theory, not reality.

    • iluvisrael

      Leaving bacon at the mosque is childish – the point of the story is how islam is protected while the most disgusting insults about Judaism and Christianity are given a pass.

      • DB1954

        Childish, but funny.

    • CowboyUp

      No, I wouldn’t care. I’ll gobble halal and kosher meat just as quick as any other kind. Way to help prove our point.

    • Paardestaart

      But you agree with the ten years in jail??

    • DB1954

      Bigotry isn’t against the law here in the U.S. Well, until Hussein became President.

  • truebearing

    Get your heads out of the bottle and stand up, or never play “Scotland the Brave” again! Eat your damn bacon, but run the Muslims out of your country before it’s too late. Are you waiting for the English to show you how to fight?

    Has anyone seen the $30,000 foot basins a college in Canada set up for their Muslim students? If I’m ever up there, I’ll be sure to piss in them, and maybe grease them down in bacon fat.
    Can you imagine any other religion getting such expensive accommodations?

    Maybe Stilwell should have raped a few girls (and boys) or started a smuggling ring. Or just claimed to be an islamopithecine. He would’ve got probation or sensitivity training. Or election to the town council.

    This is a perfect example of moderate islam0nazi “justice” being carried out in Scotland. I imagine in some of the more radical islamic states death might be the sentence.

  • semus

    I think they should just skip all this and go directly to Sharia law. Then they could just kill these Islam haters. By they way do they do they preach Jihad in this Mosque?

  • Shaun Moth II

    All religions must be respected? Apart from by Muslims who seek to destroy all others. Typical of Chairman of the Edinburgh and Lothian Regional Equality Council to be a a Paki.

    “The Chairman of the Edinburgh and Lothian Regional Equality Council,

    been given a 10-month jail sentence for offending Muslims”. Scottish authorities made sure to appoint a MUSLIM as Chairman of Regional Equality Council.

    Indigenous Brits are regarded with utter contempt by anti-human rights-Briton-haters UK ruling elites who for several years have run Britain as if it has already been conquered by Muslims. Britain’s vile leaders behave as if they have no other choice but to OBEY every desire and every demand of Muslims with whom they have treacherously heavily colonized Britain with.

    What a Muslim military invasion could never achieve against Britain and Europe has been achieved by British and European ruling elite TRAITORS via immigration jihad. British and European leaders are DETERMINED to smash ALL resistance to Muslim conquest and the imposition of barbaric Islamic sharia law.

      And Obama will bring it here next. Count on it.

    I see Mr Choudury spoke the reported approving comments:

    “We need to respect everyone’s religion or culture, whatever it may be. Hopefully a sentence like this will act as a lesson to show people that all religions need to be respected.”

    instead issuing them by press release. One marvels at how he managed to deliver these lines with a straight face, without getting doubled up and guffawing with laughter. Hats off to him.

  • DB1954

    Time for that long awaited independent Scotland. Then again, nah, it’ll never happen. Too many muzzies there too.

  • Hktony

    This is good news more islamaphobes should be jailed for petty actions. The judges do us all a great favour because they show us sharia law is in the uk. Don’t blame British people in general- it’s the so called educated liberal thinkers who do not live with the consequences of Muslims that are the real traitors. The real British will fight back and I can only assume destroy the liberal establishment and Islam in the uk. Talking to liberals and Muslims has long passed and I think they know . History shows that the only way is for people to take democracy back with pitch forks. Moderate Muslims must also know they will never be trusted too. Liberals must know this and will never be trusted again, or until people forget !
    So the only way to go is for more bacon and insults to the religion of the thin skinned murderers.
