Let's have Dhimmitude for lunch

Hardly surprising, yet still disturbing is a story from the UK wherein school lunch programs have had Halal meat for some time now. (Thanks to The Brussels Journal)

Parents angered as every pupil is given halal school meals

Halal meat is being served to pupils in state schools without their knowledge, even if they believe the religious slaughter is cruel.

Parents have reacted furiously after being sent letters telling them their children's school dinners have been all-halal for 'some time'.

To conform with Jewish and Muslim religious tradition, animals are prepared for halal products by having their throats slit while conscious - a method many people believe is inhumane and which the RSPCA has condemned.

The meat was introduced at four schools in the Reading area with a high proportion of Muslim pupils. But parents of non-Muslim pupils - between 20 and 50 per cent of the schools' roll -say they were not consulted.

I'm highly skeptical that this involved concern for people of the Jewish faith. It seems to me, that was merely tossed in to try and reduce the controversy somewhat. Notice that the meat was introduced in areas with a high proportion of Muslim students.

A spokesperson for Reading Borough Council said: "The decision was taken several years ago. Schools thought it was the appropriate choice for their multi-cultural community. We are increasing options at the four schools by offering fish each day."

"Increasing options" and yet (emphasis added):

The other schools where only halal meat is served are New Town, Oxford Road and Alfred Sutton primary schools.

Why can't Muslim kids simply pack their own lunch? I did that for years as a child. Furthermore, is it so difficult to inform parents, and to provide choices if they really want to be so multi-cultural?

Multi-culturalism apparently has become just another way to say, "please make me a dhimmi", in Europe of late. One can easily imagine how some Muslims, of the perpetually offended, CAIR victimhood type, would react if pork made it into their lunches somehow, without their consent.

And therein lies the problem. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, when those being appealed to have no backbone. Unfortunately, some of those making complaints, have much more intended than simply having a particular meat for lunch. Whether they achieve it under the table, as in this matter, or brazenly in our faces, they intend subjugation to Sharia for those not of their radicalized version of Islam. It may be lunch meat one day, cartoons another, but they are unrelenting. We shrink back in accommodation foolishly and only make our future that much more insecure.

Sadly, some are so beholden to multi-culturalism and peace at any cost, that they continually train themselves to be happy at hearing the words, "now that's a good dhimmi".
