Middle east? There are more asians than Arabs in this country. Which are the problem to you?

Ha that stinks. I worked at Dominos for a while. We used to get Somalis walk in and demand that we clean all the equipment, baking dishes etc before they would let us cook them a pizza.

When we were busy that was a huge load of effort for one customer and a single $6.90 pizza.

They make up less than 1% of customers so why they weren't just told to take a hike and open their own Halal Pizzas is beyond me. This PC gone mad.

(Pizza Correctness)


the last kind of people i would think to complain about food is a somali, considering that their "brothers" in somalia are lucky to eat a bowl of rice in a month

I am not Muslim and I live in the UK and to be honest I think it is a good thing. Think about it, you need to look at both ends of the stick.

For those that are saying Dominos is discriminating against its regular customers by only selling halal meat in some of their take aways, does it not seem they are discriminating against Muslims by not selling halal meat in all their other take aways?

I can see why they have decided to make their take aways either halal meat or not as it would be expensive to stock both kinds of meat as you wouldn't have a clue which is going to be more popular.

They are just broadening their horizons. I respect them for it.

I must admit that I'm getting fed up of this country of ours bowing to every whim and demand made by minority groups, if they don't like living and eating the same foods as the rest of us Brits then in my opinion its time they all went elsewhere!!!
We speak and read ENGLISH, its about time they all got used to it and tried to be part of this Country and not seperate from it!!

Um, can't they just order a pizza without pepperoni?

I mean it's not mandatory to get pepperoni on your pizza. Last time I checked anyway.

Living in Detroit we have lots and lots of people from the mid east and whenever they want a pizza they just order one without the offending topping.

Seems like a simple solution to a simple problem. But hey what do I know right?

That's a fairly negative way of looking at it but I must admit the pressure is starting to mount a fair bit between locals and foreigners in general.

You shouldn't blame them or us for it though, instead you should be looking towards the governments dodgy regulations and figures which are allowing our country to become too crowded.

No jobs = no food/accomodation/life

It's only natural to blame outsiders when really we should be pointing fingers within.

I can understand where the people who are objecting are coming from. It does feel unfair of them to ban all pork from the menu and only offer halal meats. Especially to those who can't eat it because of their own religious reasons, Sikh's for example.

Surely they could have offered it as a choice to those who wanted it instead of taking the choice away from those who don't?

The thng with a lot of fast food places now is many of the employees especially managers are muslim, and they refuse to even handle pork products.

Yes this is what most muslims do, most are not too picky.

But some muslims are afraid of people cooking food after using pork, meaning the pork could get on the pizza or cooking tools get reused after touching pork etc. A bit petty I know. But it's business. That's how businnes works, if there is a high population, then it makes sense to go halal to make more money. It's not bowing down to a minority, it's good old business.

People taking this personaly, need to take a step back, take a deep breath and think about it more.

That is very true actually. Whenever I have been to a Dominos the people making the pizzas are nearly always foreign with one or two students serving.

Erm, no, we're happy with the food. It's called trade. We'll give you stuff for your stuff. That works. What we don't want is foreign peoples trying to impose their will. Thats the sort of thing that starts wars, and we win wars.


You are still not getting the point, we are talking about a damn pizza shop......not some forced rules changing your way of life in any dramatic way.. nobody is imposing their wills on you, most muslims abide by the rules and try to live just like anyone else in this country. The media's propaganda make it appear like there is something wrong, when there is nothing wrong...lol.

It's business! nothing more.....

Oh yeah I'm sure you win wars lol.....

Interesting thread to be sure.

The mistake in my opinion here, is that the Muslims are in fact, imposing their will, demanding anything is imposing your will. The mere fact the someone in the Muslim community didn't simply open a Halal pizza shop is confusing to me.

It's not just in Great Briton either, it's happening in my neighborhood too. Refusing to scan pork items wrapped in plastic vacuum sealed packages. Cab drivers refusing fares because the have a service dog, or the fare has a bottle of booze with them. Even local colleges putting in foot baths and special prayer rooms for the Muslims. These publicly funded colleges would never get away with anything Christian, but we have to cow tow to the Muslims?

If that isn't imposing their will on us, I don't know what is.

There was a guy in the UK who was told to take down his union jack flags he had up on St Georges day because it offended the "foreigners"

I'm not being negative, I'm being honest. Only last week a teacher was sacked for scrapping a seperate assembley for muslim children. Even though the head of the muslim council in the area agreed that it caused segregation. We shouldn't bow to any of these religious groups any more, there are enough laws to protect religious and cultrual beliefs of anyone that decides to move here. We don't need to start removing food items, will the local Tesco or Morrisons be removing sausages or pork chops from display soon?

Good points. If you can't do a job to its full extent.... don't apply? But employers are too concerned about discriminating and don't realize there is going to be a problem until they have employed them.

With regards to imposing their beleifs and values upon us, it's not right but there must be a degree of lenience and meet half way on both sides otherwise it will just breed intolerance (which is plain to see in most threads of this nature).

Plus I'm pretty sure we as a nation have done near enough the exact same thing if not worse in our history.

There are plenty of halal pizza, chicken, kebab shops.

What you say about muslims imposing their will on people is highly exaggerated, when thousands live without complaining etc, if 1 muslim complains, it becomes huge news. And most of the time, it's non-muslim views and opinions on muslims that make big news, not muslim views lol, thus muslims are in the spotlight again and again, in your face, media shaping peoples views on muslim, mostly in VERY obvious propaganda news reports.

People "complain" about muslims complaining. I have never seen a muslim complain.... In fact all I see is NON- muslims complaining about muslims all the time lol. I have also never met a muslim with such hatred as I see expressed here on ATS. Not once have a seen a muslim come on here and call for the death of westerners, but many times I have read comments calling the death of all muslims, nuking the middle east etc.... Ironic...

Actually that particular incident had been going on for 18 months and when she left she made a statement that the decision to leave was not based upon this.

Even though she left the school still stood by her decision and made all children have a joint assembly praising their own religions gods but all together.

Now isn't this how it should be?

You cannot get a muslim to handle pork, it is an extreme issue for them with their religious beliefs. Dominoes is not being honest instead should just say the people who work fast food are predominately muslim and won't handle pork. That would make people even more hostile.

Good point.

If people are fine with eating from them all the time, then it would make them a hypocrite if they are not fine with a couple of halal places for those who would prefer it. It's good business.

I have a couple of muslim friends who are only "religious" if it suits them, they drink alcohol, some also smoke ciggaretes and cannabis and date white girls because they don't get "any" from muslim girls.
I'm not saying that all muslims are hipocrites, just that a small minority use religion only when it suits them.
