The Ham Sandwich From Hell
An American Expat in Southeast Asia ^ | 25 April 2007 | expatguy

Posted on 04/25/2007 4:33:40 AM PDT by expatguy

Benign and seemingly harmless to many, above we see the "ham sandwich" from hell. Unless your name is Mama Cass or you happen to be a Muslim, then you have nothing to worry about.

The "ham sandwich" is the natural predator of devout Muslims around the globe. While it might seem to be nothing more than an innoculous organic compound to some, or perhaps a tasty lunch menu item to others, the "ham sandwich" inflicts fear and terror into the hearts and minds of Muslims, and possesses the the capacity to devour the very soul of a Muslim should they happen to venture to close to it.

Whether it is Minnesota cab drivers refusing passengers who are carrying alcohol or students in Maine frightened and offended by a ham sandwich, Im constantly amazed at both the audacity of these new immigrants and the gullibility of well-meaning Americans who zealously fall all over themselves in these futile and pathetic attempts to appease.

Aided and abbetted by liberal politicians and quisling propagandists, the effrontery and supposed indignity of these reprobates is not founded in any religious doctrine. It is founded in their desire to recreate America into a sick parody of their own home countries, or as it is in many cases, simply to achive "victimhood" ($$$).

Claiming that the "close proximity" to either alcohol or pork violates the tenets of their religion is nothing more than cleverly crafted subterfuge with the sole intent of striking it big in the litigation lottery.

The reality is that Muslims, like Jews or even Rastafarians for that matter abstain for eating pork as one of the tenets of their religion.

So when Steven Wessler, the executive director with the Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence says that the close proximity of a "ham sandwich" is "extraordinarily hurtful and degrading" to Muslims and that their "religion prohibits them from being around ham...[sic]". he just proves himself to be either a charlatan or a patsy.

Unless you have a Somalian student hogtied and are shoving baby back ribs and beer down his throat then you basically have nothing to worry about.

On that note, in my many years spent in both Indonesia and Malaysia I have never once come across a Muslim taxi driver who has refused a passenger who was carrying alcohol or heard of a Muslim who believed that the "close proximity" of pork violated the tenets of their religion.

Dont Be Duped!!!

If nothing else I would not be Muslim because I have no use for a religion that believes someone else can send my soul to hell. I need a God who knows how to look deep into my soul and give me credit for what He finds there. And most importantly, if He doesn’t like what He finds there he will let me know, and give me a chance to make it right.

Even if it were the religion of peace, I would have to pass on the glories of Islam since it would deny me the joy of determining how and where I spend eternity.

It’s long been said that a good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich. Now I understand why.

This is just like the Imams who got thrown off the airplane. It is a scam for money.

All the Muslims we've killed or who have blown themselves up should be buried with hog parts. Might just win this thing really quickly.

Public schools are not supposed to involve themselves in religious matters. The fact that this school enforces the religious mores of the Islamic faith is a violation of the Constitution.

I saw an article posted here yesterday about this. How would the immigrant children know what a ham sandwich looks like, if it has always been forbidden to them?

Yeah, kind of silly thought.

Thats some "god" they have there.....

He knows all about ham but apparently nothing of their individual soul or heart.

No wonder they fear him he's at best a fraud and at worst a psychopath. In fact that describes most muslims.

I spoke to several Muslims here today about these stories "The Minnesota Cab Drivers" and the "Somali Students in Maine" and all of them laughed...

One said it looks like America and Britain are becoming Islamic extremists while they expect the rest of the Muslim world to be moderates.

Spam is better.
It is difficult to dip/smear a bullet with actual HAM. You can grip half a dozen 7.62 in your hand and dip them easily. You can treat even more .223—but I personally don’t favor the mousegun these days.
It’s good—in SO MANY ways.

All public schools will soon be required to have an on-site food scanner. The last thing we need is a deadly pork hot dog, disguised as beef, striking fear and terror into the hearts of the students.

While of undetermined veracity, this certainly warrants further investigation as a weapon against those who hate and killn us:

Once in US history an episode of Islamic terrorism was very quickly stopped. It happened in the Philippines about 1911, when Gen. John J. Pershing was in command of the garrison. There had been numerous Islamic terrorist attacks, so “Black Jack” told his boys to catch the perps and teach them a lesson.

Forced to dig their own graves, the terrorists were all tied to posts, execution style. The US soldiers then brought in pigs and slaughtered them, rubbing their bullets in the blood and fat. Thus, the terrorists were terrorized; they saw that they would be contaminated with hogs’ blood. This would mean that they could not enter Heaven, even if they died as terrorist martyrs.

All but one was shot, their bodies dumped into the grave, and the hog guts dumped atop the bodies. The lone survivor was allowed to escape back to the terrorist camp and tell his brethren what happened to the others. This brought a stop to terrorism in the Philippines for the next 50 years.

Now we find out that they fed the recalled dog food to PIGS which are now quarantined. Wonder who “assumed” that the food would be safe for pigs and not get into the human food chain through them?

If their religion tells them to stay away from pork. It also tells them to stay away from kufir and to not obey the laws of the infidel. I wonder what it says about living in land of the infidel?

"Muslims, do not choose among the unbelievers for your friends." [Koran Sura 4:144] "But strike at their necks..." [Koran Sura 8:12] "Hell shall be their home, an evil fate." [Koran sura 9:73].

“deny me the joy of determining how and where I spend eternity.”

For it is by Grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - -not by works, so that no one can boast Ephesians 2:8

My understanding of Islam is that its adherents can’t be certain they’re saved, that they won’t know until they face the judgment. That gift if available to them too, but it will do them no good if they choose not to accept it. Jesus did all the work, but we still have to make the personal choice to accept Him. Muslims believe that someone other than yourself can determine your fate.

I certainly did not mean to say that, other than making the choice to accept the gift of salvation, that I am in any way, shape or form responsible for where I spend eternity. It is indeed a gift from God and certainly not the result of anything I did or will do!

The Americans who fall all over themselves are few in number and neither gullible nor well-meaning. It is a liberal program aided and abetted by by minorities, in this case Muslims, not the other way around. Steven Wessler may be a charlatan but is certainly not a patsy; he's a cold-blooded white hating racist who doesn't give a damn about Muslim hurt, he just uses them as a weapon.

A new a lunatic fresh for Pakistan years ago. He spent the first couple af months determining where all the pork was. He didn't like hot dogs at all and kept his distance from them and the people who ate them.

Hell's hot dogs. The prefered delight of the unclean.

The aroma of bacon really gets them up.

Correct me if I am wrong, but from what I have heard any products containing pork are completely off limits to all servicemen serving in Iraq.

Not at all. The chow halls serve pork bacon, pork chops, pork roast, pork BBQ, etc. regularly.

Heck, a lot of the Iraqis eat pork. When I needed to get 750 hot dogs for July 4 last year, my local buyer couldn't find that many in the all beef variety, but he was able to get plenty of pork hot dogs. Out in town.

Go figure. ;-)

Interesting, because families back home are told not to ship products containing pork to servicemen.

There are many restrictions about what you can send and in many cases; you need to ask what the soldiers actually want. A few no-no's first:

No Pork. No Alcohol in any form. No Pornography. No Magazines that depict the human body (male or female) in an undressed state (IE: Swimsuit issues, body building magazines, Victoria's Secret). No weapons of any sort.

From the following:

This story has already been corrected. http://www.sunjournal.com/story/209231-3/LewistonAuburn/Ham_report_stirs_mess/

It was actually a parody, and didn’t actually occur. (We all still run into the fact that just because a “news story” is on the internet doesn’t make it accurate.)

Maybe the folks in Maine don’t deserve any irate emails after all.
