Bottom line its about tolerance. How tolerant should we be towards others, overlooking (in our eyes) their 'transgressions'?

Cry me a river, considering we behaved so intolerantly in their homelands. They want to ban pork, we banned their countries sovereignty and self determination. We bombed their country to dust. How intolerant is that?

Speak for yourself, most of us did none of those things, yet we are all expected to pay the price.

What price is that exactly, this is about Germany and is more than a little sensationalised. It's talking about schools reducing pork products. Now although it states simply pork, I'm assuming on the whole it means the various types of sausage that is extremely popular in Germany, sausage is processed meat and there are strong concerns over health if too much processed meat is eaten. Schools have responsibility to ensure the food they provide is wholesome and nutritional - it strikes me that moving away from offering processed meat as a daily staple fed to a child while at school may be seen by many as a good thing.

Perhaps that's an additional reason for this approach. Of course people would love to say "Germany banning pork to appease Muslims!!!!!!!!" because it feeds more into their belief system, but that doesn't make it correct.

I think that soon, you wouldnt want to be a Muslim living in Germany. Much like you didn't want to be a Jew living in Germany back during WW2.

They also banned the sale of Sausages in the streets

Well, that is how the people running things see it. You should pay the price, not them.

Germany is a member of NATO, contributing to major war operations in the Middle East and elsewhere under that banner.


Of course, denialists might call that peace keeping.

Is this Michelle Obama? I see you're an apologist for the schools "reducing" pork products (no, they're getting rid of it completely from some places). Why can't they just choose something else? What about cafes who are excluding it from their menu, maybe adults choose to eat it. I guess you also agree with former Mayor Bloomberg of NY proposal to ban big sodas. There is something called personal responsiblity and/or parenting.

No there is a difference between being a MEMBER of NATO and then NATO bombing the middle east.

You have been told this many times but refuse to listen or understand.

Yes th eUS is a member of NATO. but did NATO sign off and say this was a NATO operation? No they didnt. LEGALLY you dont have a argument.

the U.N. though DID. That is who you should Blame. But cant do that.. that would include russia and china then right?

What exactly has Germany contributed to the bombing of which country that people are fleeing from right now in what NATO mission? And how does this make it the fault of the German people really in such a way that you can act like they had it coming?

And we all know a large group of these refugees are not even from warzones. Are the germans also responsible for them?

Might want to wind your neck in a little and look at the title of the thread which clearly states it's about schools. For all you or I know the demand for pork on school menus is too low to make it economical to offer - what with a mixture of concerns around cancer risks from eating too much processed meat, to people of certain religions (Judaism and Islam spring to mind) plus children who wish to follow a meat free diet. You could of course just blame Muslims because that's always the easy thing to do isn't it.

As for big sodas? I couldn't care less. If people want to be obese then that's not really my problem - I'm just stating facts, not following an agenda.

But I thought that people were fleeing from IS and people were begging for the world to interfere and fight IS. And now this has turned into Germany dropping bombs making civilians flee their country?

Germany is helping with the strategic bombing of Syria and other countries against ISIS. They tell the bombs where to go.

NOT where the people will go afterwards once their villages are destroyed an hour or two after a German pilot flew over their homes.

The french ar ein th eUN and NATO,but have they stated this is a NATO operation? Remember NATo has to officially sign off on operations IF they are NATO operations. Its in their by laws somewhere.

semantics.

The weapons, personnel, equipment and all else are still there. Is it NATO , UN, or God...doesnt change the business end of a bomb to the dead. Doesnt change the flag on the shoulder of the pilots uniform either come to think of it....

So you are saying it is Germany's fault because they are fighting ISIS? It is not the fault of ISIS?

Or are you saying that Germany created ISIS?

None of that

Only that Germans are helping bomb in the ME, which you say they are not. They are responsible for dead middle easterners. Lets hope they were MOSTLY ISIS like Germany says, though they pick targets from the air at thousands of feet and then land for lunch while their targets are KILLED. Bombs arent sniper bullets, I am sure they accept SOME collateral losses like any modern military.

There are no innocents. I wonder if ISIS has any weapons seized from Iraq that were sold by Germany to Saddam during the 80s?
