A group of devoutly religious parents demanded that their children be given special privilege by ordering the local school to ban pork products for all children and only offer halal meals. However, as soon as the mayor heard about their ultimatum, he responded with a counter-offer that left the parents outraged.
After years of opening the floodgates for the refugee crisis, Europe is struggling to stay afloat in the waves of Muslim migrants. Although they make up only a “tiny minority,” the Muslim migrant population is already clashing with European governments in a bid to rule over the Christian majority. As the left continuously caves to political correctness, a select few are standing up to the relentless and utterly shameless demands of this special interest group.
The Express reports that the Muslim community in Saint-Seurin-sur-l’Isle, France, raised their voices in protest against an elementary school’s decision to do away with pork-free menu items for Muslims. In a response to budget cuts, the school was forced to nix the expensive extra meals, prompting Muslim parents and students to demonstrate in front of the building.
When Mayor Marcel Berthomé heard about the demands, he not only decided to address the Muslims personally but also reiterated his disgust. In an applause-worthy and blunt statement, Mayor Berthomé literally told the Muslims that if they don’t like it, they can leave.
“The town is in debt and we cannot afford to cook two different dishes a day. So, if you’re not happy, don’t eat at school!” Berthomé replied.
Berthomé added that, unlike Muslims, the rest of the students aren’t demanding the school accommodate their personal preferences, according to France Bleu news. He added that “some do not eat pork, fish, beef, or even omelets,” but they don’t demand the school offer something else. They bring their own lunch, which is exactly what Muslim students can do to resolve their issue.
Of course, the Muslim community didn’t want a simple solution. They wanted appeasement. As such, the simple notion that Muslims should fulfill their religious demands instead of forcing the government to pay for them was enough to send their community into an entitled fit.
“The town hall made its decision without prior consultation or information. This is not normal, we (Muslims) are citizens like the others, ” said Sonia, a mother of Muslim family. “We pay local taxes and we pay for our children’s school meals. It should not be up to the mayor to decide what’s in my child’s plate. He’s basically saying, ‘You eat or you go.'”
Of course, Muslims aren’t like other citizens, as other citizens aren’t demanding that the schools accommodate their neverending religious compulsions. In fact, only Islam requires its followers to establish and enforce Islamic law in every country on earth until there is no other religion but Islam, per the Quran. Halal, of course, is merely a baby step to implement less oppressive aspects of Sharia before the truly tyrannical facets are in effect.
In addition to the ridiculous nature of their ultimatum, a spokesperson for the mayor’s office said that the uproar was only for a handful of students. He explained that no more than 15 students identify as Muslim at the school, yet the community expected the school to implement costly and burdensome features. This includes training staff to properly handle food so it never encounters non-halal ingredients and separate preparation and cooking of halal products. If the halal food was even accidentally “contaminated,” the school would have a devastating lawsuit on their hands.
The Quran commands Muslims to wage war against unbelievers until they bow to Islam and its laws. While history shows us that most obeyed this by conquering nations by the sword as their prophet did, the moderates are finding that political correctness gets the same results.
Quran (8:39) – “And fight them [the unbelievers] until there is no fitnah (disbelief) and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah. And if they cease – then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do.”
Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
These 15 students are doing a stellar job at fighting to make their non-Muslim school “feel subdued.” Fortunately, the mayor isn’t giving into their pretentious demands.
