Egypt to slaughter every pig in the country

Egypt has begun slaughtering every pig in the country. The obvious question would be: “Who owns the pigs in Egypt?” Being a majority Muslim country, in which pigs are unclean, you might be surprised to learn that Egypt has any pigs but they do, about 300,000. Reading the article on CBC won’t tell you anything about who owns the pigs, just that “clashes have erupted over pig slaughter.” This isn’t surprising as I don’t think anyone wants their pigs killed without compensation. Over on the BBC we are supplied with the information that it is Coptic Christians who are losing their pigs. Perhaps a better headline would be:

“Muslim Egypt Uses Swine Flu as an Excuse to Destroy the Livelihood of Thousands of Impoverished Coptic Christians”

Let’s pray for our Egyptian brothers and sisters!
