The insanity never stops. Some bacon falls off somebody's mcmuffin and a hate crime investigation takes place yet a guy in Ft. Hood screaming alla akbar and shooting twelve people is considered workplace violence.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- It's being investigated as a hate crime -- someone scattered pieces of bacon over the New Dorp Beach field where the borough's Muslim community celebrated the end of Ramadan Sunday morning. But that act of desecration failed to ruin what organizers described as a successful celebration -- about 1,500 worshipers gathered at the John D'Amato Field at New Dorp Lane and Cedar Grove Avenue, unaware of the early morning police investigation that preceded the ceremony.

Glad it didn't ruin their celebration:

"Dr. Sadiea was one of a handful of organizers who noticed the uncooked bacon on a small section of the field at about 8 a.m. He said he contacted police, but kept the incident and investigation quiet, because he didn't want to distress the adults and children gathering for morning prayers. "They didn't want to ruin the happiness of one of the only two holidays of the entire year," said Hesham El-Meligy, the founder of the Islamic Civic Association-Staten Island, who said he didn't attend the outdoor ceremony but had heard about the incident.

The MAS held the outdoor Eid-ul-Fitr celebration in Midland Beach in 2010 and 2011. The outdoor celebration was part of an effort by the group to foster transparency and to define its own community in positive ways a decade after 9/11, organizers said in 2011."

If somebody finding some bacon laying in a field next door to your celebration ruins it then you have something very wrong with you. I wonder what would happen if say a little container of bacon bits fell out of somebody's shopping bag as they walked by on the way home? Probably the bomb unit would be called out.

On the other hand - there's this...

Christians stoned by Muslims in Dearborn retain American Freedom Law Center for civil rights lawsuit

During the 2012 Arab International Festival held this past June in Dearborn, Michigan, a group of Christian evangelists were pelted with stones, bottles, and debris by Muslim youths while deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office stood idly by, allowing the criminal assault to take place. Many of the Christians were bloodied by the attack. When Ruben Israel, the leader of the Christian group, asked the law enforcement officers present to step in and enforce the criminal law so that the Christians could exercise their right to freedom of speech, Israel was given the option of either leaving the festival or facing arrest....

No hate crimes here - except for the Christians who are holding their signs in such an intimidating manner.
