Skip to comments.Muslim Lawmaker Rages After Being Served Pork (Threatens Food Server with Knife!)
Posted on 11/21/2006 2:44:00 PM PST by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle
A Muslim lawmaker on Monday night raged at a catering crewmember of a Chinese restaurant for serving her food with pork.
Rep. Faysah Dumarpa of Lanao del Sur reportedly slapped the crewmember, Virginia Fernando Altamirano, and held a bread knife at her.
Altamirano, 36, has filed a complaint against Dumarpa with the Quezon City police.
It is forbidden in Islam for a believer to eat pork or its derivatives. To do so is a grievous sin. An intentional consumption of such meat would hinder me from gaining entrance to paradise. Beyond dietary concerns, this is a matter of faith, Dumarpa said in a letter to Ramon Sy, head of the Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine, which caters for congressmen during sessions at the South Lounge in the House of Representatives.
Dumarpa said she felt betrayed and grossly insulted by being served food containing pork. I assumed your [catering] crew purposely caused that by intentional concealment of the fact herein set forth. If it was not at all intentional, then there must have been gross negligence on their part.
Dumarpa even demanded that Sy fire the crewmen, and that only halal foods be made available in the South Lounge.
Another Muslim legislator, Anak Mindanao party-list Rep. Mujiv Hataman, said the House leadership should take responsibility for the gaffe.
This indicates lack of religious and cultural sensitivity even within the House of Representatives itself, Hataman said in a text message.
To prevent a repetition of the incident, Hataman suggested that the House consider putting up a separate lounge for Muslim legislators and visitors of Congress.
Hey now, easy there.
It's a Christmas tradition around here.
If you can get enough butter dripping off it, it ain't all that bad.
I like your logic.
"So humans taste like pig? I thought they taste like chicken."
humans taste like pig... people from france taste like chicken... (so I've heard)
But it tastes like chicken...
Sheesh. Pork in the rice would be kind of obvious. Say no thanks do you have anything halal. What is this ululating about everything going to do except cast the deteriorating opinions of these tripwire personalities in concrete?
Diced Spam Cluster Bombs?
Lots of luck doing that in Manila. Pork is a Filipino staple.
How about their own planet. I hear Mercury is nice this time of year.
"Hey is it me or does she look like a pig?"
Do not insult a pig, please!
That gives me an idea... we should all start wearing little vials of pork blood around our necks. That way, maybe the muzzies wouldn't be so quick to blow us up if they knew there was a good chance they would go to hell if they did (which is what happens anyway - they're just too stupid and hateful to realize it).
"Diced Spam Cluster Bombs?"
nah...go with Deviled Ham. Yummmm

Thats enough to make me want to open up a restaurant specializing in mid-eastern cuisine.
Oh its only the intentional consumption that condemns them to hell. If thats the case, and the unintentional consumption wont bar the Gates of Heaven to them, whats his gripe?
Aaack! When I was a kid my mom would fry up 'smelt' in butter and serve them whole (heads too) with rice and peas.
They were SO bad you wouldn't believe it. I learned to love rice and peas. I hated those boney bastards, I used tons of tartar sauce to disguise the taste and stench.
I never made my kids eat food they hate, never used dessert as a reward. barf
Next time give her a can of Alpo
If they mixed that pork with some scrambled eggs, she never would have known!
Here's an idea: Every border patrol and border crossing should be required to offer pork rinds (yum) to all border crossers and then put the "immigrants" who refuse on a slow boat to Guantanamo.
How did she know the meat was pork, since Muslims have never tasted it?
Obviously, another Muslim who loves people. Just another manifestation of Islam's true nature.
Whatever happened to "separation of church and state."
If they're going to pull a knife on a waitress, I suggest they don't eat anything that contains carbon.
I wonder if a Jew who was accidentally served pork or a Mormon who was accidentally served non-decaf coffee would threaten the waitress with a knife and slap her?
I demand that you STFU.
Not all folk are slaves, like you, to your completely F*%^$# Up cult beliefs.
Oh, and put that knife down before I put it somewhere that is going to make it real uncomfortable for you to sit down.
I'd call her a heathen pig but I like pigs.
Right next to the baked beans and cole slaw.
Stupid voters, this is just the beginning.
She may as well get use to pork now. I suspect she will be surrounded by heathen pigs in hell. What's more, if she is Democrat, will she be pushing and voting for pork bills on the hill?
This stupid a-hole will do that to the wrong person and end up being a better raghead as he bleeds to death after being shot.

If Paradise has room for all this, then who wants to go?
According to Muslim teaching, they cant eat anything that even comes in contact with pork (or alcohol)
and she ordered something in a Chinese restaurant! Anything you order in a Chinese restaurant probably came into contact with pork at some point.
Sounds like she had an agenda when she went into that establishment. Not that a Muslim would ever have an agenda.
Well, as I hear it, it is all pink on the inside.
These Moslems get on my nerves with their total insensitivity to the way most of the rest of us feel about "the other white meat".
She must be the Phillippines answer to Cynthia McKinney.
Once here they were dispatched to nearby Quaker missionaries to deliver sound beatings.
My dad whose read virtually every primary or secondary text concerning North American settlement from 1500 to 1700 said that in the good old days the ministers, along with the elders and deacons, constituted not just the religious authorities but the police as well, so this wasn't at all surprising.
How about putting "Phillipines" in the headline?
Man, I know what you mean, I'm married to a Norwegian. The Norwegians have so many great attributes but their cuisine is not one of them. First time I had Lutefisk, I thought they had mistakenly cooked a rotten fish.
Why don't we use this tactic more? There is talk of Muslims creating a camp here in Iowa. On land donated by the Corps of Engineers, no less.
Why doesn't some loyal American turn loose a bunch of good ole Iowa hogs?
Too bad the camp is in the eastern part of the state as I understand there are wild boars in the western part of the state. Let's pray for eastward migration.
No need, IMHO. Anyone reading the story will figure that out quickly enough... and: the location of the outrage doesn't do anything to ameliorate it, in any event.
Let them eat pork.
OMG my mom served those smelts too. They are awful. And the canned yuky peas.I once lined them up under the rim of my dinner plate so I wouldn't have to eat them. We got tater tots with the smelts and peas and I hate them too. I don't make food my children won't eat, what is the use? Its funny how one person can say something and the memories flood back. Its been a while since my mom passed away and you brought back some really good memories....thanks & have a Happy Thanksgiving, Pandora
Looks like battery for the slap and attempted assault with a deadly weapon (knife). Put her in prison for 18 months with a steady diet of ham sandwiches as a reminder of her stupidity.
Actually, the pig ought to demand an apology from the ragheadess...
And apparently she believes that slapping & threatening people who serve her is not going to keep her out?! Man, is she in for a rude awakening One Fine Day!
Besides, if it was not intentional, then what is she afraid of? I mean, it's very evident that keeping away from pork hasn't helped her.
I really, really don't like putting down other religions. Even if I don't believe them, I can see the beauty in a lot of them. And I never felt that the way to promote my own philosophy was to put down another. (That's why I'm not going to say anything about that in this rant.) In fact, I used to have a lot of respect for Islam - before I knew very much about it - as it seemed very concerned with discipline, responsibility & holiness. But any more, since it's been in the spot light and is no longer an enigma, I see nothing in it. Out of ALL the religions in the world, Islam is the most bankrupt. And it's leaders are even more clueless than PCUSA General Assembly. Dumbest "religion" I've ever heard of in my life. Sorry, if it offends any of you Muzzies out there, but I think that anyone who follows Mo is a Perfect Idiot.
"half the food served by Chinese restaurants have pork in it."
And the other half was cooked in the unwashed Wok that just cooked the pork.
I don't know who elected this Dumarpa fellah but I think it was a mistake. He certainly won't bring home the bacon.
