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.


All that may be true, but ask them if they will eat pork or even allow a package of bacon to be placed in their refrigerator.

This is true with some young muslims lol, except they DO get some from the muslim girls too, but a lot don't drink alcohol thou, but plenty smoke ciggaretes and drugs... It all depends on the individual really..

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.

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

Then why did this particular Dominoes shop change their menu? If it was pure profit, that's their business, but if it was pressure from the Muslim community, their (Muslims) will was forced on Dominoes.

I have nothing against the Muslim community, until I hear/read that our way of life is changed time and time again because the Muslims are in any way offended. Pray all you want, but when a public college has to install a prayer room to accommodate one religion, to me, it's a problem. Many private companies are installing or remodeling to accommodate Muslims too, yet anyone that has a picture of Jesus or has an Easter Bunny in their cubicle has to remove them, because a Muslim was offended. That to me is damning evidence of being pressured, by a small community of people.

There is no Christmas season, it's the Holiday season, no Christmas parties, it's a holiday party. Why? There is nothing in the constitution of the United States that says you are guaranteed to not be offended. I'm offended by many things, but do I hold a press conference to complain about it? No I don't, simply because no one would listen, but if one Muslim is offended, it's news.

I'd love it if we could all just get along, become a community of people, but it's never going to happen.

Think about this. Do you think a restaurant would completely eliminate a standard item, just because one particular group of people eat there? I have been in the food business 23 years. Over half of the people who work in the places I am associated with are muslim. They won't touch pork, so we use turkey bacon now which most people don't know and probably would not care. If you tell customers you quit selling pork because a certain amount of your customers don't like pork, that is going to make a lot of people mad. If you tell them the truth, that religious reasons prevent employees from serving it, maybe they understand. Most people realize that muslims are predominately employeed in the food business or convenience store business in the US. This is common knowledge.

Believe it or not their halal meat tastes better then pepperoni. I had it at an Arabic pizza store and you could not taste any difference, except for the fact that is was less oily. You live in a semi-cultural nation so you must learn to embrace other nations as they come to your neighborhoods.

Because they probably can't eat food that has been processed in the same facility as pork.

Defeats teh purpose if pork is sharing the workplace.

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.....

[edit on 12-2-2009 by _Phoenix_]


No, my point is it is a symptom of a greater disease. Your post exemplified exactly what the problem is.

It is inevitable, unless something is wilfully done to stop it. Hell, it happened with the Anglo-Saxons and that's how we managed to be here. Well done them, but if I were a native Briton, I'd have been on King Arthur's side, you know?

The point is, I want my kids to grow up in the country I grew up in, not some country that doesn't seem to respect or appreciate how far England and the United Kingdom has had to travel to get here.

And I'm not suggesting it was me, personally, that win's wars. Britain does, I don't. I'm not so much a pacifist as I am an abject coward. I'd be helping from the rear by, say, producing ammo in somewhere remote, like the Orkney islands or something...

Yeah, I mean sometimes really religious people can't have a certain food if it was in the same building as pork, or whatever. So if there is a majority, or large portion, of people in the area who would not eat there at all because of that, the restaurant would need to modify their menu to get customers.

Dominos is nasty, fake pizza anyway.

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?

I totally understand what you are saying... but when I first heard of this I thought of those specialty places like Thai restaurants and whatnot. So there is a pizza place that caters to the Arab community, it doesn't seem like a big deal... at least to me.

Smart people put in places that are going to be used. If this is a very high Muslim area then it only seems logical to have such a place. I understand about thinking about just not ordering the pepporoni and having a 'muslim stlye' pizza... but if it is that important to someone they may be offended or even worried that their meat may touch the pepporoni.
I don't think it is good to change laws to aid specific minorities, like New York won't allow you to hand out bibles, but you can hand out Korans. But when we are talking about specialty restaurants that cater to specific groups of minorities I see nothing wrong with that. If I were a foreigner here I sure would like a taste af home too.

This is very true. The government is very much responsible for the situation as it stands now. All this PC rubbish has everyone too afraid to speak their minds and so it's all just been silently building under the surface with no way out.



Originally posted by _Phoenix_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..


It is unfortunate for me that I have witnessed this kind of hatred during one of the Muslim protests after the incident with the Danish newspapers. The level of vemon diplayed toward Britain was shocking, in spite of the fact our papers did not publish a single picture that Danish ones showed.

I know. Oddly enough though, it doesn't seem to bother my Jewish in-law. She orders vegetarian pizza from the same place that sells the mighty meteor all the time, and she won't even use a plate that's had non kosher on it after it's been washed.

Here's another thread on the subject. As I said earlier muslims won't sell pork.

Most corporation market by demographics. I think it's a smart move.
There's nothing sinister going on here.

Another thought:

Had this been any other denomination of the population would we be discussing it at all? Would it even have made it to the news?

I don't think so.

Ah yes, I never go to protests, people act crazy in protests, all kinds of people go crazy, psychologically it has something to do with crowd/group mentality anger, I hate group mentality.

Same mentality that makes groups of people go crazy after a football match in riots and fights, killing people .....

Humans....

Humans, indeed. Governments have us so wrapped up with each other that they can fiddle while Rome burns.

Not sure if this has been bought up or not, but regarding them stopping selling pork products I don't think halal and non halal food can be stored together.. and with pork being extremely non halal, there's no way they could keep it on the menu.

All in all though, I think it's a good idea from a business point of view. Businesses are about making money, so, if that's what'll make the most money, then why wouldn't they do it.

problem is, pig meat is actually less dangerous than beef now days because of all the preventative measures they take with beef that they don't have to take with pork due to its strong immunities. so now pork, even as dangerous as it is, is less deadly than beef (in moderation of course).
