That Muslims don't like and don't want to have direct contact with dogs - simply because their prophet Muhammad hated them and instructed them to consider these animals "unclean" and "impure", like pigs - many people in the West know by now, from the many stories going back at least a decade about Muslim taxi and bus drivers in our countries refusing to take passengers with dogs, even disabled people and blind persons with guide dogs.
Now comes the news that Malaysian politicians and "religious" (we know which religion, so the media could have just said "Muslim") leaders have attacked the use of Scottish terrier dogs during the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony, claiming it was "disrespectful to Muslims", "shameful" and "offensive".
Around 40 Scottie dogs, all wearing tartan dog coats with the name of each team on them, were used in the opening ceremony in Glasgow last Wednesday to lead teams around Celtic Park.
The Scotties were a much loved touch, except for the followers of Muhammad.
Apparently making things worse was the fact that the Scottie supposed to lead the Malaysian team, Jock, sat down and refused to move, so that he had to be carried by the team representative.
Mohamad Sabu, the deputy president of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party said: "Malaysia and all Islamic countries deserve and [sic] apology from the organiser.And people still refuse to acknowledge that Islam is a supremacist ideology.
"This is just so disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims – especially as it happened during Ramadan. Muslims are not allowed to touch dogs, so the organiser should have been more aware and sensitive on this issue.
"It is hoped this incident can teach other Western countries to be more respectful in the future."
Dato Ibrahim Bin Ali, a far-Right politician, former MP and founder and president of Malay supremacist group Perkasa also called for an apology.
"I think it is unbecoming. The hosts have not been sensitive enough – especially in a so-called knowledgeable and civilised society like Britain," he said. "It is shameful and has offended not only Malaysia as a Muslim country, but Muslims around the world."
Now we are supposed to apologise to all the Muslims of the world, no less, just for keeping dogs. What next?
