I cannot understand why this charge cannot be dismissed by simply forcing the prosecution to admit that Islam is a belief system and not a race, as no one in history other than Michael Jackson has ever managed to voluntarily change races, and therefore, doing something offensive to Islam cannot be an act of racism.

TWO men and a woman have appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court after bacon was allegedly thrown at and stuck to the Central Mosque.
Douglas Cruikshank, 37, Chelsea Lambie, 17, and Wayne Stilwel, 24, were charged with a racially prejudiced offence.
All three, who are from the Lothian and Borders area, made a brief appearance, separately in private, before Sheriff James Scott today.
No plea or declaration was made on their behalf and their cases were continued for further inquiry.
