In this case however the kid was just too young to sell alcohol since he was a minor. They were just upholding the law and doing what is right. No need to cause trouble or a headache since they were actually doing the correct thing. Allen West is just a douche bag moron who assumed it must be Sharia Law like a scared child afraid of his own shadow.

They're not children, they're just young adults who work. That's a good thing. If you're buying alcohol just go through the line with a cashier who is over 21. It's not the kids fault for having a job.

I worked as a cashier when I was 16 at Payless Drug Store and it was the same then. There is always someone there that can ring it up but sometimes they aren't available or on break or simply in a different line.

The fault here is on Allen West for lying and being ignorant and jumping to conclusions and assuming there is Sharia Law at Walmart which is completely false.

Sharia Law doesn't exist anywhere in the UK nor are there no-go zones for non Muslims. Some Muslim communities have set up Sharia mediation to solve issues within their own communities but they hold no value in courts or with local law enforcement or local law.


But what you stated about Sharia Law in the local communities, is what I was getting at really.

Sorry, I was tired last night and really shouldn't have posted what I did, without expanding upon it.

I should have also contributed to the assertion by the Gentleman that Sharia Law has been introduced to U.S. No it hasn't. The example in the O.P is one that I would expect to see in any supermarket, if the employee's religious beliefs prevented them from assisting in the consumption of alcohol by selling it directly to someone. It occasionally happens and the employee is perfectly entitled to refuse to handle alcohol in anyway. Discrimination laws are in place to ensure this request from the employee is met by the employer.

Is not only ridiculous but highly against our own nations constitutional laws, that while it protects freedom of religion is states very clear that it will be not laws surpassing the laws of our constitution.

And that is what Sharia is, a law and so Islam a law, one thing is to practice the religion and another to try and enforce the laws.

Is interesting, any mayor business chain, in America will never engage in trying to enforce any foreign law be religious or not because we have a constitution that actually is not compatible with any other laws that are not originated in the US and within the US. But they can cater to targeted consumerism.

Is simple as that.



Therein lies the problem.

Never allow 'Religion' into a workplace... once at the door, leave it outside!

Same reasoning can be put forth when entering another Land.... once at the door, leave it outside (Unless the new Land being entered consists of what you intend to bring)

For the record because some people still seem to think this is over Religious Values.

ALLEN WEST LIED ABOUT THIS STORY. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM. THE CASHIER WAS SIMPLY TOO YOUNG TO SELL ALCOHOL. THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SHARIA LAW.

It would be a hoax if some one posted West story as the truth, well it would a LOL.

The story of how he lied about it and then tried to retract is not a hoax.

Who are you to say who they employ?

How about you just stop acting like the world revolves around you and companies need to cater to you specifically?

It could be worse. Ever tried buying alcohol at a self service checkout? It usually takes five minutes before someone comes over to confirm you're of legal age to purchase it.

So waiting for a kid to receive confirmation from an adult that they are happy to sell you the alcohol, is probably the quicker option.

There's a lot of needless confusion about Sharia Law... it is essentially orthodoxy. No Muslims in the west are trying to get local, State or Federal law changed to Sharia Law it's just an orthodoxy that some Muslims strictly adhere to in their private, religious and communal lives.

Some businesses will choose because either they care enough to or it's financially smart for them to cater Muslim orthodoxy the same way they do with Kosher foods for Orthodox Jews but it's not something that will ever enter into the legal realm unless their civil rights are being denied to them, but even then it won't change our laws only ensure that the protection of our existing laws extend to everyone.

Just like it blows our mind Europeans can buy beer at Burger King.


Not in the UK though, never seen a Burger King or McDonalds or KFC with a license to serve alcohol.

I don't think they do in Germany either, well at least when I visited back in the mid 1980's.

The French and Spanish have a more relaxed view on the consumption of alcohol, or maybe it's because they make better wines than Germany and the rUK?

Did this happen or not?

If it did....it is messed the fudge up.

If not who cares.


Nice how you managed to work a little Jew bashing into something that didn't even involve them.

The lefties will be proud.


Jew bashing is now

"I guess he isn't aware or conveniently forgot that almost every grocery chain in the USA carries Kosher foods. "

Stretching much?

Having no valid points to make, always resort to ad hominem attacks as they really show just how smart you are! ;-)

The ironic part is Kosher food laws are far stricter than Halal food laws. And all Kosher certified foods are automatically Halal, as are all fruits, vegetables, cereals, breads, etc. In fact, Halal restrictions in the Qur'an only restrict carrion (already dead when it was found), blood, pig, meat killed in the name of something other than God/Allah, and alcoholic beverages.

So almost all foods in a common grocery store are naturally Halal, which is why Muslims can shop there in the first place.

So are you saying he made it up??? Made up half of it or what???


He went to Walmart.

A teller of Middle-Eastern Descent told him he could not sell him liquor and suggested he go to a different register.

Alan West went on a public rant about how Sharia Law is now followed at Walmart.

While in REALITY, the teller was UNDERAGE and unable to sell liquor. As the teller and Walmart have painfully explained


It is a microcosm for the xenophobic delusion Alan West and his Ilk are under.

Didn't even get that far, he saw an aisle that said no alcohol and used his eagle eyes to spot the name that "wasn't steve" and assumed the rest.

I think him actually getting told he couldn't buy the beer was giving him to much credit. That would have involved him actually trying to find out why and not assuming.

The "no liquor in this lane" sign was placed at a lane when a cashier that was under 21 took over the checkout, in accordance to local ordinance.


Thx you Kali~~!!!

Issue is resolved permently, this thread should be closed immediately if not sooner!
