Mosque Pig Burial Outrages Swiss Muslims (2011)

Staff Reporter
On Islam 
13 November 2011

"Sending shockwaves across the peaceful Swiss Muslim community, body parts of a dead pig were buried on the site of a future mosque, in a new clear sign of growing anti-Muslim sentiments in the European country."


I received the following email recently (edited for fit herein):

The new world-wide Plant-a-Pig movement  

In Seville Spain, local people found a way to stop the construction of another mosque in their town. They buried a pig on the site, and made sure this would be known to the local press. 

Islamic rules forbid the erecting of a Mosque on "pig soiled ground."

The Muslims had to cancel the project. 

No protests were needed by the local people, and... 

It worked!  

Plant a pig 

In Texas they have an overabundance of feral pigs. They could ship them all over the country, and plant them everywhere they're needed! 

Americans, let's roll up our sleeves and get to work solving the problem of this spreading menace to our American way of life. 

If pigs are the answer, let’s do it! 

Maybe we could get someone to even plant a pig at the White House. 

Just thinking...

Research shows that authenticated incidents of burying pigs on land set aside for building mosques have occurred in the world at large. The emails still circulate, but the incidents themselves seem to have died out in 2011. The original (whether in Seville or not) appears to have [allegedly] happened in either 2002 or 2004.

As others also attempted along the way in some of the forums and posts I tracked, I was unable to locate any news story about the supposed original event in Seville. I did, however, find a most delectable article about roasted suckling pig in Spain...

I will not post on the appropriateness (or not) of burying a pig on land set aside for building a mosque. For those who may not be following the Islamic question, however, many there are who suspect that Islam is a player in the final world order.

Maybe, maybe not. Have to wait and see.

That many Islamic faithful have violent tendencies, however, and are set on eradicating all but Allah, may be presumed.

If any readers can find an original news report from 2002 or 2004, a link would be appreciated.
