With thanks to Daniel Mandel of the "Weekly Standard"...I know that this story is very old, but I hadn't heard of it before, I love the headline, and I think it's hilarious.

The Muslims who are forcing their religion on all of us will not realize this is a secular society until we push back on ‘their’ right to impose their archaic ways on the rest of us.

Just another isolated incident, surrendering to the easily offended.

Either take your world back, or lose it.

Forever.

That should have happened here is the U.S.
Where I am sure we could have found some
choice words for him and told him what to
do with the spinning ice cream.

A Muslim Council spokesman said: "We commend the sensitive and prompt action that Burger King has taken."

TRANSLATION: Burger King, you are my b***h.

THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.

....they will, however, continue to use pig snouts in the dessert.

Nations who are allowing immigration from the Middle-East are mad. This simply cannot turn out well. The cultures do not mix. It would be nice if they did, but the Muslim culture does not blend. It remains steadfast while we rush to correct problems of this insignificance.

We’ve turned into a bunch of sniveling pussies.

“Ooooo, I’m sorry, did we do something wrong. Here we’ll fix it. Now is that okay. Forgive us? Do you? Oh please do.”

Honestly folks. Isn’t this obvious. It’s embarrassing.

He said: "This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims."

Come on... this is a parody, right?

What next, the crosses on buildings? Will you have to remove them from churches so not to offend them? Is there anything in the western world that doesn’t offend them? Lets see, what is there in the Muslim world that offends a westerner? Hmmmmmm.

Sadly no, unless this Internet story was picked up by some major media outlets w/ out fact checking. It wouldn’t be the first time.

I see the mod was worried about someone offending a pig by printing the name of Allah on it.

If Muslims decide to start blowing up Burger Kings, they can start with the one on Hwy 528 in River’s Edge in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. That place is worthless (it takes them 30 minutes to fill an order, and it’s always been that way).

The sacriligious ice cream will be replaced by delicious and unoffensive German chocolate treats.

I thought that the moozies didn’t like or partake in pork in any form. What the he!! are they going to BK for anyway? Some moozie had to have broken their “golden rule” and ate there. If you don’t want to be offended, do go in and start a sh#t storm. Revel in your seventh century backward a$$ ways and LEAVE US ALONE!!!!!

I bet if we looked around we could find the elephant dung Mary conspicuously NOT being pulled.

Muslim Growth
The following is a description (slightly modified) from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat. www.frontline.org.za/books_videos/sti.htm
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness.
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs [Europe, Australia, USA and Japan]. Six percent of US prison inmates are Muslim. Like any other minority, they won’t integrate, but work to build their own separate community.
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. South Africa’s Muslim population is 2%, but they control 35% of the businesses, a large percentage of the banks and have five Cabinet seats while Christians (77% of the population) have none.
They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves (along with threats for failure to comply).
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia; Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world, but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. (Ei: car-burnings in France last October.) Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats.
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning (India, Mindanao, Philippines).
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare [Indonesia].
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya (infidel tax). (Sudan, Kosovo, Lebanon and Egypt).
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide [Western Papua (New Guinea), Iran, Biafra, Turkey and North Nigeria].
100% will usher in the peace of “Dar-es-Salaam” - House of Peace - as in Saudi Arabia, Libya and Yemen.
