"I'll Have the Dhimmi Double Burger" - KFC Restaurant Pulls Bacon Burgers to Appease Muslims ...
Daily Mial (U.K.) ^ | 24 March 2010 | Katherine Faulkner

KFC diner told 'you can't have bacon in your burger here - we're now halal'

A diner was left fuming after a KFC restaurant took his favourite meal off the menu because it breached their new halal regulations.

Alan Phillips was told he would have to travel five miles to another branch if he wanted the Big Daddy, a chicken burger, topped with bacon, cheese and salad.

The branch, in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is one of 86 KFC restaurants which is running trials of a scheme where they sell nothing other than halal meat.

The company has taken the burger off the menu because Islamic dietary law forbids Muslims to eat anything which has been prepared on the same premises as pork, which is itself strictly forbidden.

It said it was responding to 'increased demand' for a halal menu in the areas of Britain with growing Muslim populations.

Mr Phillips said he found the change 'extremely unfair' on non-Muslim customers. 'I can't believe a chain like this has taken this stance,' he said. 'Staff told me that due to the dietary laws halal meat could not be prepared in the same place as other meats, so I couldn't have my bacon.

It was like they were saying I couldn't buy bacon because it might offend people.'

Mr Phillips was told he would have to travel to another KFC five miles away to buy his bacon burger. He protested that this was too far for him to travel.

'It is getting silly,' he said. 'I have many friends who are black, white and Muslim but they wouldn't be forced to eat non-halal meat.

'I have no problem with them selling halal meat, but I would like the choice.'

I never knew KFC served any pork products to begin with actually.

I assume they won’t be serving meat on Friday to appease Catholics.

‘I have no problem with them selling halal meat”

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=370177

excerpts: “Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, ‘Bismillah allahu akbar’ – ‘in the name of Allah the greatest,’” explains Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” “Many people refuse to eat it on religious grounds. Many Christians, Hindus or Sikhs and Jews find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual

He notes New Testament instructions specifically warning Christians:
“Stay away from food that has been offered to idols (which makes it unclean), any kind of sexual sin, eating animals that have been strangled, and blood.” (Acts 15:20, New Century Version)

“As for the Gentile Christians, all we ask of them is what we already told them in a letter: They should not eat food offered to idols, nor consume blood, nor eat meat from strangled animals, and they should stay away from all sexual immorality” (Acts 21:25 New Living Translation).

“A lot of times, when you are importing food from large meat-producing regions such as New Zealand or Denmark, these meats are already slaughtered in the Islamic guidelines,” she said. “A lot of their trade is with the Middle East, and they don’t know where everything is going. All meat they export is halal standard. If it happens to go to the U.S. or England, nobody knows, since it’s not always advertised or labeled.”
Omar added: “Perhaps what should be talked about more here is less about halal, and more about food-industry standards for labeling food properly. Certainly, if someone does not want to have halal, they should be clearly informed that the food product is halal. All consumers deserve the right to be informed of what they are eating.”

I used to know 3 KFCs within reasonable proximity to my house.

They've all closed. I think the chain is going down.

Chick-Fil-A is kicking their but and they don’t even have plain fried chicken other than nuggets and strips.

KFC is a part of the dumbest company name I can think of recently, YUM!, that bought KFC, Taco Bell, & Pizza Hut from PepsiCo. It’s based in Louisville, KY.

They are heavily franchised so those closings could be the area franchise.

I used to work for the Pentagon, now I help you to get your chicken on. And for a limited time only, order an eight-piece Nappy Meal, and get a 32-ounce malt liquor absolutely free. Lord have mercy. Introducing the Nappy Meal from G.F.C. This chicken is the bomb. At the General's, we do chicken right-on!

In Britain, they serve chicken sandwiches that they call "burgers." For more information and for their position on halal food surf over to http://www.kfc.co.uk

My local KFC is a combined KFC/A&W, and the A&W side sells the burgers.

Yet another reason for me not go to KFC ever again. I also avoid any food truck with the word Halal on it.

I wouldn’t appease those irrational Muslims one inch. Next, they will force apartment owners to ban the cooking of pork in the apartments.

There needs to be an education program to teach the science deficit brainwashed skulls full of mush that pork in this country is safe, clean and considered the “other white meat.”

There’s already been something like that about either a kitchen, apartment overhead or maybe it was about a beer... but they wanted it banned. I also heard of a news story, on a school bus, some young kids did something they thought was funny, waving bacon at a Muslim kid.

That dog that General Pershing had so much affection is despised by the Muslim. Muslims believe the dog is unclean because dogs use their tongue to take care their hygiene necessities. It is probably why women are held to such low esteem by these morons because they take care of a child’s hygiene necessities. Such things as changing diapers a Muslim man will have none of it.

Same here in far north Austin / Travis county. One of four is still open, but seldom is anyone in the parking lot.

Why doesn’t some enterprising Muslim just start a halal fast food chain?

That way, Muslim customers won’t be “offended” and, if the food is tasty enough, they’ll get plenty of business from the dhimmis, too.

It is impossible to appease people who are fool enough to believe in Islam. Islam is oppression, and appeasing it is the same as giving into it.

“I assume they won’t be serving meat on Friday to appease Catholics.”

Yes!!! And if a fast food joint DARES to serve meat on Friday we Catholics will make threats, demand that the rest of society cave to our religious sensitivities, protest in front of the place holding up pictures of the Pope, and invade your place of business with militant women in veils with only their faces showing while chanting “Dominus vobiscum!!”

Those nuns can be awfully ornery. They carry rulers.

That act would entail actually creating something instead of destroying something. Strictly forbidden.
