You muslims need to understand that pork is a staple food in many Western countries. We are not going to get rid of pork just to please muslims. You don't have to eat it, you eat what you like, just like I will not eat halal foods for ethical reasons.
Intersting facts about pork:

' It is one of the most commonly consumed meats worldwide,[1] with evidence of pig husbandry dating back to 5000 BC.'

'Pork is one of the most widely eaten meats in the world, accounting for about 38% of meat production worldwide, although consumption varies widely from place to place.[1]

According to the USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service, nearly 100 million metric tons of pork were consumed worldwide in 2006 (preliminary data). Increasing urbanization and disposable income has led to a rapid rise in pork consumption in China, where 2006 consumption was 20% higher than in 2002, and a further 5% increase projected in 2007.[6]'

'The pig is one of the oldest forms of livestock, having been domesticated as early as 5000 BC.[2] It is believed to have been domesticated either in the Near East or in China from the wild boar[citation needed]. The adaptable nature and omnivorous diet of this creature allowed early humans to domesticate it much earlier than many other forms of livestock, such as cattle. Pigs were mostly used for food, but people also used their hides for shields and shoes, their bones for tools and weapons, and their bristles for brushes. Pigs have other roles within the human economy: their feeding behaviour in searching for roots churns up the ground and makes it easier to plough; their sensitive noses lead them to truffles, an underground fungus highly valued by humans; and their omnivorous nature enables them to eat human rubbish, keeping settlements cleaner.'

True. And let's not forget that the pig is a very intelligent animal.#10 on the most intelligent animals.

You need to do a little more research. Eating pork is disgusting.

Then don't eat it. Seems pretty simple. I think mushrooms are disgusting, but I don't expect the entire world to give them up.
