YouTube outrage over Egypt's savage pig cull

Warning: Video contains graphic images

This is Islam. This is Islam in "progressive", "secular" Egypt.

If you watch the video, you'll see two legged animals brutalizing helpless livestock, all for the glory of Islam.

I have to ask, where is the outrage over the hundreds of thousands of deaths at Muslim hands throughout Africa and the Middle East?


YouTube outrage over Egypt's savage pig cull

A YOUTUBE video of pigs being culled in Egypt as part of swine flu measures has caused outrage at the apparent barbarity of the method of slaughtering the animals.

The clip posted by independent newspaper Al-Masri Al-Yom includes gory images of pigs being beaten with iron bars, piglets being stabbed and animals being kicked alive into bulldozer buckets.
In the video, one man describes how chemicals are also poured on animals caged in lorries, leading to a slow death.

Ali Shaaban, head of the site where the corpses are buried, confirmed the method.
"The pigs are covered with chemical products and left for 30 or 40 minutes until they are dead, then we throw them in the ditch,'' he said.
Since going online on YouTube this weekend, the clip has sparked horrified reactions from Muslims and from the Christian Copt community, who are the main rearers of pigs in Egypt as Muslims do not eat pork.
