THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN EAST AND WEST
CONTRASTING REPULSION AND LOVE OF PIGS
There are thing which are same in all cultures and there are things which are in sharp contrast with each other. Allah has declared a PIG as a filthy animal and has made it mandatory for all Muslims not to eat the flesh of a pig. In the Western world we see pigs being eaten all the time and their flesh is relished as a delicacy. An animal who eats its own poop. Science has proven beyond doubt that the flesh of a pig is most prone to bacterial invasion and is not a proper flesh to partake. And yet that community refuses to accept scientific proof and do not stop having pig flesh in their daily meat.
And the Muslims are not alone in this prohibition. Our Jew brethren are equally in league with us on this aspect of life. The Pig stands as HARAM to us as well as the Jews. Equally important is that we Muslims do not partake blood in our food as it is considered harmful to us. That is the concept of butchering an animal so that the blood is oozed out of the same. NO PIG, NO BLOOD. Pretty sane advice.
Unfortunately sanity does not prevail in this world!
