Superstition Watch

For over a century, a statue of a wild boar stood in the center of England’s oldest public park. It was damaged during the Second World War. Finally, it has been restored. The old boar was going to be put back where it belonged. Not any more. These plans have, apparently, now been “abandoned for fear of offending Muslims, whose religion considers pigs to be ‘unclean’.”

And if you want another tiny example of the West’s supine response to Islamic fanaticism – that’s it.
