NO PORK IN SCHOOL CANTEENS?

A REAL MAYOR WHO REFUSES TO REMOVE PORK FROM THE SCHOOL CANTEENS EXPLAINS WHY

Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of Ath in Belgium.

Marc Duvivier the mayor of Ath, has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why.

“Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Belgium, its customs, its traditions, its way of life, because that’s where they chose to immigrate.

They must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Belgium.

They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Belgians who so generously welcomed them.

They must understand that the Athois are neither racist nor xenophobic, they accepted many immigrants before Muslims (whereas the reverse is not true that Muslims do not accept non-Muslim foreigners on their soil).

That no more than other nations, the Belgians are not willing to give up their identity, their culture.

And if Belgium is a land of welcome, it’s not Marc Duvivier that welcomes foreigners, but the Belgian people as a whole.

Finally, they must understand that in Belgium with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain.

The municipality of Ath was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia.

For Muslims that disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Belgium, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Shariah.

If you left your country for Belgium, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Belgium than elsewhere.

Ask yourself the question, just once, “Why is it better here in Belgium than where you come from?”

A canteen with pork is part of the answer.

And while we’re on a food kick: spaghettios_0_1411999275When Ashley Gabrielle Huff was pulled over by a police officer in Gainesville, Ga., on July 2 for a tag light violation, the officer immediately became suspicious of her appearance and demeanor. After finding a spoon in her car with residue on it (and supposedly field-testing it), the officer was convinced it was methamphetamine and arrested Huff, 23, hauling her off to Hall County Jail.

She was released at one point, then re incarcerated. Unable to pay her bail, she languished there until Sept. 18—when lab tests came back and proved it was SpaghettiOs sauce, not meth, on the spoon, the Gainesville Times reports.

A new handbook aimed at preventing Canada’s Muslim youth from falling under the influence of terror organizations and being sent overseas to commit acts of violence was unveiled Monday in Winnipeg.

The city’s Islamic Social Services Association (ISSA), in conjunction with national Muslim organizations and input from the RCMP, unveiled the booklet on Monday afternoon.

ISSA president Shahina Siddiqui said the booklet is the first step in what will be a multi-pronged, national strategy aimed at preventing youth from joining terror groups.

“We do not see this phenomenon of terrorism as only a policing issue,” Siddiqui told reporters during a news conference. “We see it as a social issue, we see it as a community issue, and we see it as a media issue.”

The booklet has five sections, including a chapter devoted to challenging extremist messages of violence through the Qur’an and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad. It also includes advice for parents on the red flags to watch for that suggest their child may be following extremist teachings.

The idea for the booklet was born from a town hall meeting at Winnipeg’s Grand Mosque in June 2013. The objective was to share ideas and identify information gaps in order to come up with a plan “and reverse this trend whereby Canadian youth are getting recruited by these criminal gangs, by these terrorist groups overseas.”

(We should note that some groups have compared this to a drivers handbook. You know, something in the glove box that you can quickly consult when ya have a question! -Ed)
