It sounds like parody, but (this story) from Spain is evidently true:
The parents of a Muslim boy who attends a secondary school in La Línea, Cádiz province, have reported their son's teacher for an incident in the boy's geography class which the child said caused him offence as a Muslim.
The teacher, José Reyes Fernández, with more than 20 years in the profession, was explaining to the class how the cold climate in Trevélez, Granada province, aided in the curing of the village's most famous local product, jamón serrano. The boy told his teacher that hearing the word 'ham' in class was offensive to him because of his religion and asked his geography teacher to stop referring to the product which caused him offence.
El Mundo newspaper reports that the boy's parents then reported the teacher to both the National Police and to the courts. They placed a denuncia against the teacher for psychological ill-treatment in the context of xenophobia and racism.
One assumes that the boy and his parents had help from the Spanish equivalent of CAIR in pushing his "xenophobia" complaint. It is a great illustration of the effort to create a little bubble of walking sharia around each Muslim that we also see in the U.S.
Imams have issued a fatwa against the living members of the Monty Python troop for their horrendously offensive Spam (spiced ham) skit.
SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM (you listening Achmed?) SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM........
I find any mention of moHAMed deeply offensive.
Your move, moHAMmedans...
Best to stay away from Madrid then - they have a Ham Museum there......
A JDAM SPAMRAM !
"Don't say SPAM! I find it OFFENSIVE!"
The solution is that he and his family should go home to whatever craphole they crawled out of.
There is no ‘right’ not to be offended by a foreign culture when you move to that very country.
If I am ‘offended’ by people speaking French, then I will not move to France. It is very simple.
Which one is more xenophobic? Muslims or non-Muslims?
The answer is glaring and obvious.
``Green Eggs and Ham``?
Outlaw islam... grind up all muzzies and feed them to pigs. I know... I know... it’s over the top... but it is on the level that an average muzzie can relate to.
In other news, a fatwa was issued today against Kevin Bacon.
Mooselimbs that do not publicly denounce terror should be deported to mecca, then apply my tag line.
Any mooselimb that denounces terror and then engages in terror in any manner, should be executed, on the spot.
What is your tagline?
The parallel in our county are those that never want to hear the word CHRISTmas as it offends them.
