Halal food in US schools
BSS, New York
The powerful US Senate (sic) is likely to witness a bill from Democrat Senator John Sabini, who is pursuing to ensure 'halal food' for Muslim students in schools of the city and the state as well.
"The 'Halal Food Bill' will be placed before the State Senate shortly," John said at a fund-raising meeting in the city on Thursday.
Bangladesh Expatriates in New York organised the programme, where John Sabini also said that he and some other Democrat senators have been trying their best to raise funds from US business community for the cyclone-hit people in Bangladesh.
John Sabini has made a success last year, when he put forward a bill in the senate asking government to keep Eid days free from public examinations for Muslims. The bill has been passed to enact a new law.
District Leader of Democratic Party Mohammad Amunullah and president of American- Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce Gias Ahmed, among others, spoke on the occasion.

This is dhimmitude of the worst kind nonetheless.
I’m sure we’ll be hearing from the ACLU on this. /sarc
Do they already offer kosher menus?
bkmarking this. Thanks.
mmmmmm Kosher for mooslims
Kaasher = fit, right, meet, just = halal
Lo kaasher = unfit = haram
anyone ever heard of a bag lunch?
“Do they already offer kosher menus?”
Gelfite fish lunches for everyone just one day and things will return to normal.
First thing I thought of, too.
Also, are Jewish or Christian or Hindu or Buddhist, or ... students 'free from public examinations' on their holy days, if it isn't a major "secular" holiday as well?
This is a Halal of an idea!
Running scared liberals appeasing Muslims.
The end of America.
Let em eat pork....or pay for their own damn food
Way back when I went to public school, they served fish every Friday.
Shaking my head! Halal food in US schools ..more bending over for the Muslims! if they want Halal food let them bring it from home. This is BS.
redefines pathetic, doesn’t it?
When do they enact the “Dhimm Crow” laws, and segregate us?
Boy weren't you lucky! We only got fish sticks on Fridays. Or, maybe creamed tuna on toast, in really cold weather.
Probably just as far back as when you were there.
That died when PC pendulum swung one way.
Now that the PC pendulum is swinging the other way, we have to forbid state support of any Christian religion and mandate state support of other religions.
For a government supposedly founded on the principle of non-interference with religion, it sure does seem to be in a permanent "meddle" mode.
Ah, nothing like diversity and division, Dims love this stuff, divide and conquer. How much will this cost the middle class taxpayers SENATOR! Feels good to spend some one elses money and not your own on people who will not assimilate and have no interest in becoming Americans. Feckless, spineless socialists
Am I the only person in the world who actually likes gefilte fish? & I'm not even Ashkenazi!
I’m offended by halal food, where are my civil rights? I want soul food, i’m calling Al Sharpton.
I’d prefer Indian, I’m not too keen on taking a bite out of a camel.
As for halal food in NY schools... Lol.
Who knows? Next it will be footbaths.
This all needs to stop. They will be using “free lunch money” to pay for this “special food”, our tax dollars. Reform NOW. Lets go back to packing our own lunches (like I do for my kids everyday, while freeloaders get hot lunches on my nickel).
Right. Halal as soon as the schools serve fish on Fridays...
Halal food involves more than just eliminating pork. I only know the tip of the iceberg, but Halal meat must be killed by having its throat slit (sound familiar?) while chanting the name of Allah over it. Halal food cannot be prepared using the same dishes and pans and implements used for non-Halal food, so it practically requires a separate kitchen. It can’t be stored alongside all that nasty non-Halal food either, so separate freezers and pantries will be needed. And would they really trust infidels to prepare their Halal food? Not likely, so figure on hiring a crew of Islamic cooks and supply clerks. Now that you’ve hired all these Islamic employees, can you really deny them prayer rooms and foot washers? Can you really deny them Islamic holidays off? Tis a steep slope we descend here.
Real simple everybody gets peanut butter & jelly or mac & cheese . If that ain’t good enough then let them bring a brown bag lunch.
Sabinin might just have come up with the means to defeat Islamic terrorism /s
This is a form of jihad.
They buy it at discount in Joisey...or else?
Incremental surrender is soon coming to a locale near you.
From the First Amendment:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”
Now, since this is a state and not congress, the fight over this will be interesting.
I’m not even Ashkenazi!...I had one of those once, but he barked all night.
