Dearbornistan: McDonald's Pays Jizya


McDonald's pays out some serious cash to appease the Muslim community in Dearborn, Michigan. Looks like McD's is off my menu for good. (Not that it was really ever on it.)

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) McDonald's and one of its franchise owners agreed to pay $700,000 to members of the Muslim community to settle allegations a Detroit-area restaurant falsely advertised its food as being prepared according to Islamic dietary law. [...]

The lawsuit alleged that Ahmed bought a chicken sandwich in September 2011 at a Dearborn McDonald's but found it wasn't halal meaning it didn't meet Islamic requirements for preparing food. Islam forbids consumption of pork, and God's name must be invoked before an animal providing meat for consumption is slaughtered.

1 How do they know someone didn't say "Oh, Jesus!" right before the chicken was offed?

2 While I have no interest in defending those whose "holy" book wants me dead for being born of a Jewish mother, I don't really believe there is much we can get worked up about regarding this one--

The restaurant advertised that they sold halal chicken, and then provided non-halal. That's fraud any way you slice it... of course, when a "kosher" place pulls this scam, observant Jews just stop going there and run the guy out of the sue-happy bit...hmmm....

Of course, I wonder who actually owns these places-- muslim franchisees? Finley owns the own in question, but who is Finley?

A lot of this nonsense could be avoided if muslims required certified oversight of the entire restaurant, like kosher restaurants....but I guess since the illiterate founder of islam didn't really know the details of "kosher" when he stole the idea for his new religion, this is what you get... muslims going to restaurants with bacon on the menu and then raising hell when they accidentally get a piece of said bacon on their sammich.

4 They needed the money to send to Al Qaeda. Does that make Ronald McDonald an accessory to terrorism?

5 McDonalds. They used to be an American business success. If only Ray Croc (and the McD brothers) could see this. About the only reason I go to McD is to take a whiz, and perhaps get coffee. What-a-Burger has better food, friendlier people, and is a Texas company. Only other choice is Chic-fil-A'' or Papa John's. Or maybe Ribmasters.

6 I'm totally with FRAK. If you claim it. Do it. Muslims and Jews are important. Without them the price of pork would sky rocket and I do like my pork chops, sausage and ribs. No wonder they're always pissed off about something. Life without pork? Yuk?
