Ham? Don't Mention It!
Power Line ^ | December 21, 2010 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 12/21/2010 12:09:10 PM PST by yoe

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.

These ideologues don't have a religion, they have a Dictatorship that closely resembles tyranny as Islam is Tyrannical in the fullest sense of the word lead by Imams who are fanatical, God-less evil men. As such it should be outlawed.

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.

All mooselimbs must prove that they are not terrorists.

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.

But the HAM in Muhammad and Muhammadan is pronounced HOM!!!

Note that it is the Muhammadans who object to the mention of ham/jamon, while the Jews stay silent. That says it all!

As an Orthodox Christian who follows the New Calendar, I’m looking forward to the return of meat to my diet this Saturday. Yes, that will eventually include bacon and pork, including Pork and Sauerkraut on New Year’s Day. Take that, you muzzies!!!!

Wilfull and deliberate insults hurled at Christianity by Islam believers are deeply objectionable. Christians must invoke a spiritual jihad against the adherents of Islam. This should include continuing prayers for the conversion of all Islamic believers including kneel-ins on the steps of Mosques. Coordinated missionary witness especially in countries where Christianity is opressed. Martyrdom and imprisonment are the most powerful weapons in the Christian arsenal.

They should try my own Octaham Recipe Recipe for the day "Blackened Ham on a Stick". You might want to try this tonight. 1. Buy an eight sided Farmer John canned ham (Octaham). 2. Place skillet on high heat until it is glowing red or until smoke alarms go off. 3. Remove ham from can keeping gelatin intact. 4. Place ham in skillet on one of the eight sides and fry until side black and gelatin has vaporized. 5. Rotate ham 22.5 degrees. Repeat until all facets are blackened and all gelatin is in the ionosphere. Caution: overcooking can harm the ozone. 6.Place ham on large stick. 7. Enjoy that ham!!
