Muslim Panda Fights Raise Funds for Semtex

It’s a tad unfair to choose this article for such a daft reason, but you should read it if only for the pleasure of coming across this marvellous sentence in The Independent:

“Muslims in Darlington have been raising money for semtex by organising panda fights.”

The article by Mark Steel pours Montypythonesque scorn upon a popular trashy tabloid newspaper which shamelessly invents stories demonising Muslims.

Wife-beating? That’s fine – unless you’re a Muslim

There’s also a panda-less and more detailed article about the same subject too:

The shameful Islamophobia at the heart of Britain’s press
