A former soldier has been jailed for four months after he tied a pig’s head to the gates of a mosque before uploading pictures of what he did on Facebook.

Simon Parkes, 45, tied the animal’s head to the front of Cheltenham Mosque, Gloucestershire, after seeing a group of Muslims burning poppies on Remembrance Sunday 2010.

He also wrote ‘Allah’ on the pig’s snout in what was seen as an ‘act of revenge’ against the Muslim religion.

Parkes also painted ‘rag heads out’ on the side of the mosque.

Gloucester Crown Court heard that his actions had distressed worshippers at the mosque and served to heighten racial tensions.

Sentencing him Judge Jamie Tabor QC, said: ‘Not only soldiers but the majority of citizens of this country were offended by seeing the poppies burnt.

‘They, however, did not react as you did. You deliberately set out to not only insult another religion but you undertook to inflame and enhance racial tension.’

Parkes went to the mosque with an unknown accomplice in the early hours of November 13, 2010 and placed the pig’s head on the gate at the front.

Pigs are seen as being unclean in the Muslim and Jewish religion so Parkes’ actions will have been deeply offensive to anyone who saw what he had done.

They used red paint to daub graffiti on the building which was found a few hours later by a worshipper who was ‘deeply offended’ by what he saw.

 

Prosecutor Lisa Hennessy said: ‘On the gates was a disembodied pig’s head which had been tied on a head level by what appeared to be shoe laces.

‘Written on the head, down the nose, was the name of Allah. He removed the head as quickly as he could. Two passers by removed the head from the vicinity and placed it in a bin.

‘CCTV, taken from a nearby camera, showed two hooded, masked men arrive at around 2am. They got out the car with the pig’s head in a carrier bag.’

Since the poppy burning, the extremist Muslim group that carried it out has been formally banned.

Muslims Against Crusades was made a proscribed terrorist group by Home Secretary Theresa May meaning they could face up to 10 years in prison.

  1. Since the poppy burning, the extremist Muslim group that carried it out has been formally banned.

    OH how i love those last two paragraphs

  2. And if a muslim or anyone else did something similar to a Christian church, absolutely nothing would happen. It’s time to put a stop to these two tier policing tactics and two tier laws or suffer the consequences because it will only get worse if you let the elites get away with this.

  3. My main concern is that either Parkes killed a pig or got the head from a slaughterhouse. It’s not offending Muslims.

    What he did was animal cruelty or disrespect even though the pig would have been dead if he got it from the slaughterhouse. I know most people wouldn’t agree with me; however, our animals deserve better.

    If Muslims want to live in the West, they must learn to respect our culture which is an animal loving one, including pigs. If they can’t do that, they need to return to their native countries.

    Their distaste for pigs and dogs is ridiculous. What God tells believers to behave in such a manner? It is nothing more than paganistic fear.

  4. In France churches are attacked by Muslims so often it isn’t even news anymore. As for Synagogues, well we have an idea. Google for ‘Church in France defiled’ and try some other words for defiled. Nothing happens to them at all. They piss in the baptismal fonts, every kind of profanity you might think of.

    Nothing happens. If it happens in France it happens in England. Vicars are beaten up, that much I am certain of. Lots of vandalism of Churches by Muslim ‘youths’ in England.

    Nothing happens.

  5. Barbara:

    I ask myself often, what kind of a god hates his own creation so much that he would set one part of it to loath and destroy the other.

    The answers I get are difficult to accept even for me and even though they are my own answers.

  6. But she does’nt stop the Orangemen walking the Streets on a Yearly Basis,they always NEED their walks to walk past a Catholic Church so they can spurt their Bile at the Catholic People and Buildings ect.,get that sorted FIRST,then you will get ALL the Brittish People behind the Hate Crimes regardless of who they are,but they won’t do that because the Tories are Unionists,and the Unionists are Traditionally Protestant,and the Protestants are STILL Protesting against the Rome Intervention,grow up you BUNCH OF DINOSAURS,..these Hate Laws are in place for EVERYONE.

  7. ‘Not only soldiers but the majority of citizens of this country were offended by seeing the poppies burnt.’
    ‘They, however, did not react as you did.’

    No but soon everyone will be. If the poppy-burners had been suitably punished in the first place then perhaps this ex-soldier wouldn’t have done what he did. He is in jail now, but maybe in five or ten years time he will be seen as a hero.

  8. Your right Bob,maybe thats what they(the Government) are waiting for,and at the end of Day they are doing nothing to address the inbalance of everyday complaints against the filth,but it’s going to be the old Story,…”If you want to change a Law,you’ll have to break it first”….as all the now Good Guys were Rebels at one time or another.

  9. The hate crimes laws were passed so the left could prosecute the people who disagreed with which ever minority was flavor of the month, they are an evil setting up a two tiered justice system.

  10. Not many muzzies in this part of the country. This is one of the most free part of the country (from muzzies). I am amazed that there is even a mosque here at all. Oh well.

  11. mosques like muzzies are like viruses, if they can see a way of making inroads somewhere then they place one in there and watch the reaction of the populace then if nothing happens, they invade and start to take over ever so slowly until they have the numbers to back them up and then its too late, they have conquered! look at Britian, USA and Australia Britian is being taken over by the thousands and demmanding that the Brits respect and follow the ways of shitlam.
    and then we have the gutless governments who are to scared to do anything in case they offend the muzzies and get labelled racist.

  12. It is bad enough being invaded by horrible asian culture. It is even worse to be invaded by asians moslems or other types of moslems who thrive on harsh brutal inhumane threats or their sharia to control their people behaviour. I think we should not let any foreign individual or foreign groups to dictate to us infidels who value our own decent choice, decent freedom and are much better behaved (when on our our own and when without foreign presense or their shabby alien interference) than them. We should also not let any foreign culture or foreign individuals or foreign groups(who appear to be westernised but in reality are not really so and who are irrationally anti-western) to control our own decent infidel culture or our decent Western culture.
