Aye but its just part of a long trend and we talking about the larger picture of how slower the midlands is turning in to a Little Middle east,

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.

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?

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?
Interesting thread to be sure.

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.....

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.

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.

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?

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.
