Somali Muslims in US Demand Halal Welfare from Americans

Muslims in Minnesota facing poverty and tapping local food banks say they need a program that recognizes their pork-free needs.

Somali-Americans in one Minneapolis community have called for local government officials to create a no-pork zone via a special food shelf just for foods that conform to their faith, a local CBS News affiliate reported.

“It’s about human rights also — basic human rights to get the proper food and also healthy food,” Imam Hassan Mohamud told the affiliate.

    Isn’t that the role of private charities?

    • Quit bitching. It’s easy to follow your stupid cult.

      Eat vegetarian. Plants do not contain pork.

      • Hard Little Machine

        My point is that the government isn’t there to accommodate culinary uniqueness. Food banks which get public funding aren’t there to cater. If the Muslims have particular requirements then they should seek out Muslim charities to fill that need. I don’t know what the minutiae of Halal are but I would not expect or demand a food bank to fulfill every one of my personal kashrut demands.

          Muslim charities fund jihad, not food banks.

          • Hard Little Machine

            Pity. Oh well, make mine a gyro with a side of 7.62mm full metal jacket.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Halal certification schemes also serve to fund jihad. This is well-known. Ban halal certification operations for funding terrorism, and at least we will get slimmer resident Islamist jihadis.

          • Will Quest

            It’s a multi-million islamic shakedown …… only practicing muslim allowed to work in halal abattoirs……. the fee for the imam’s sacrificial blessing & the fee for halal-certification all passed on to {often unsuspecting} non-muslim consumers of sacrificial meat….
            Halal abattoirs are growing exponentially in the West to satiate the barbaric taste for sacrificial meat and the blessed money that comes with it….

        Where do you think the best fertilizer comes from that cattlemen use for the grass their cattle fatten up on.

  • Editor

    Hey somalis, you have the “unalienable basic human right” to go buy your own food. If you can’t, it’s mac & cheese or GTFO!

  • Sid Falco

    Plenty of halal food in Canada…

  • marty_p

    It seems the Mo’s have it a bit backwards – the recipients of the charity of those who donate don’t get to demand the nature of the donations ….. in other words BEGGARS CAN’T BE CHOOSERS….
    I am sure that even with an average IQ of 68, surely they can grasp the concept.

    • jayme

      IQs are tools of Western oppression, don’t you know /sarc. (Even though, on average, it is people of Oriental – that is, Chinese – descent who typically have the highest IQs, not whites).

      • Having a high IQ only helps if you use it.

        Islam specifically prohibits independent thought.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Bob Smith, are you certain the sentiment you just expressed is not Islamophobic? I mean, it’s TRUE and all that, but……….

  • ontario john

    Why don’t they just join the rest of the Somalis heading for Canada? Everything is free up here. And we have two coast lines they can set up pirate operations at.

    • Micky C.

      I would prefer they setup shop on the 3rd coastline. Somewhere near Alert should do.

      • Blacksmith

        Thats a good idea, with all the global warming it should be beautiful up there……

      • ontario john

        I wonder if we will see an increase in speed boat sales.

    • Slickfoot

      You already got pirates it would seem.

    • WalterBannon

      Yes, muslims, step into these cattle cars that will take you to a nice place, where you will first have to take a “shower” in our nice huts we are building for you…

    • Alain

      I am surprised that there are still some left who have not yet crossed the border.

      • Yo Mama

        The CBC will help them!

        Omar will like it because many Arab Muslims believe in having slaves, though Mohammad believed a black slave was only worth half that of a white slave. That makes them more affordable to less wealthy Arabs!

  • Something tells me that we are nearing the end (in the sense of the illogical conclusion) of, “You can choose your own gender, you don’t need to work, you don’t have to believe in arithmetic and just because you are still breathing you have an intrinsic worth. That all works until, as Margaret Thatcher so aptly said, “you run out of other people’s money”. Cut off the money hydrant and they’ll either get jobs and westernize (civilize, more like!) or be back herding goats in the desert in no time.

    • Editor

      That comment was a breath of fresh, logical, common sense air. Thank you.

    • Blacksmith

      My preference is goat herding on another continent.

    • Clink9

      Welfare is evil.

      • Welfare is gussied up slavery.

        Way too many fall for it.

        • Clink9

          It is destroying our countries. We have to go back to pre WW One without income tax.

        • canminuteman

          If they were slaves we’d at least get some work out of them.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            You know, there is so much work to do up north in Canada.
            Five years on the frozen tundra working on what we need to get done should be enough for them to earn their wings.
            While they’re up here, they can eat what we want them to eat.
            If they don’t like it then they know where the door is.

  • Porkernfries

    So, out of ALL the different foods that are available out there, they demand what, exactly? What about all the other meats? Veggies? Fruits, nuts… ???

    Does every meat category have to be halal? I thought they did not eat pork, but everything else was OK. So what’s the problem?

    • Editor

      Problem is quietly eating all the other no pork food does not give them the opportunity to shout about their “basic human rights”, scream islamophobia, walk down the street with placards and impose themselves and their supremacist ideology on their generous host nation. It’s not really about food. It’s about power.

    • mobuyus

      They cannot eat something unless it’s been terrorized before having it’s throat slit.

      • Editor

        Even their vegetables! I read that somewhere on the internet.

        • Exile1981

          The meat has to be sexually violated by a muslim then sold to another muslim who strings it up alive by its hind legs and slits it’s throat. The animal then struggles and bleeds out while the muslim chants and screams at it.

          The muslim who kills it has to do it quickly, less chance of him getting horny and violating the animal… which would require him to sell it.

          • ntt1

            yes wise guidlines on sheep shagging as dictated by ayatollah Khomemi. yes you can use the beast sexually but then it must be sold in the next village . under muslim law it is consider haram to fuck dinner, who says these savages are barbaric? just buy nothing proffered by the left hand, thats the butt wiping hand.

    • Mannie

      Halal butchery is required for all critters. It’s kinda like half-arsed Kosher.

    • John Boy

      What really they want is “halal certified” foods paid for by the government as that money for the certification goes towards Jihad, making the money paid for the certification Jiyza, the tax us Kaffirs are supposed to pay “the believers” because their psychotic “prophet” was a robber and thief.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Food is not a human right.

    • Will Quest

      All their meat has to be sacrificial meat, all of it has to be slaughtered by a practicing Muslim in a cruel sharia- compliant way & blessed by an Imam { fee } and certified halal { fee} quite the shake down ….
      The Islamic shake-down is growing exponentially with the introduction of more and more halal abattoirs to satiate the hunger for sacrificial meats. Halal slaughter bypasses the humane western technique of stunning the animal prior to killing it. Halal Sacrificial slaughter slices the animal’s throat while it is conscious . The animal slowly bleeds to death, in pain and extreme anxiety. In an halal abattoir only practicing muslim need apply for work, there is a fee for prayers by the imam on every cruelly sacrificed animal, prayers offered to the most benevolent the most merciful~!?!, and there are fees for halal certificates, all paid for by unsuspecting consumers……. quite a ludicrous ‘ Shake-Down ‘ for the Islamic coffers !
      Islam is controlling our meat industry except pork of course…. Islam is growing rich on the sharia-compliant sacrifice of animals and unsuspecting consumers pay for the privilege….. often because the halal abattoir is becoming the only source of meat… other than pork of course….
      Sacrificial meat cruelly slaughtered & blessed in the name of the most ‘beneficent’ most ‘merciful’ …….. you can’t make this sh-t up ….

  • Mannie

    Most of my food bank contributions are pork products.

  • andycanuck

    Somehow I doubt there’s alot of pork-based products at food banks. Pork & beans cans, maybe; but anything else (roasts? bacon?), no way.

    • Exile1981

      You’d be surprised at the roasts and meat cuts given out at the food bank.

      • andycanuck

        Oh, really? Thanks for the correction. I guess supermarkets clear expiring stock at them to explain that contrasted with private individuals’ donations.

        • Exile1981

          In fairness i volunteered around thanksgiving. They were getting either a turkey, a beef roast or a pork roast per family. Couples with no kids or singles got a chicken.

          The food bank had a deal for cheap meats with a big wholesale warehouse.

    • Mannie

      I’ve been known to throw in a couple of small canned hams, and even the dreaded Spam.

  • WalterBannon

    deport them

  • Tooth&Claw

    Rights? You have no rights to be fed to your liking on the public’s generosity in donating food. You’re entitled and arrogant to assume it’s a right. You can choose to eat pork free or not. No one has to supply you with sustenance. Go out and garden.

    • Will Quest

      Halal is much more, so much more , than just being pork-free, read my comments about sacrificial meats……. all meats….. FYI jello as a desert is haram it has pork products { gelatin from pork bones } the list is quite extensive ……

      • Tooth&Claw

        Frankly I don’t care. As another poster said. Let them eat vegetables and tofu.

  • Allan

    Nothing to do with “human rights”, but EVERYTHING to do with imposing Sharia on the “kuffar”.

  • ghost of benghazi

    This is why food aid doesn’t work. They are the famine, they can’t even feed themselves in the biggest food store in the world. America. Bill 103 makes more sense everyday. (That last sentence was reverse speech I’m practicing.)

  • ntt1

    In Vancouver the muzzoes have their own muslim only food bank. but still frequent the filthy kafir food bank for more free stuff (jizzya) .
    this is supported by halal payments on many products and by local Christian churches whose shrinking membership donations are now used to support the very ideology that prays for their destruction every friday

  • Barrington Minge

    They clearly don’t understand. Try F£uck Off…….

  • Dana Garcia

    How about some nice (cheap) tofu for moocher muzbots? It should supply all their minimal protein needs required for napping and koran reading.

    • Will Quest

      If coagulant is from Halal the tofu is Halal, if it is not from Halal source then tofu is haram { prohibited } … halal food is quite extensive and poised to take over a lot of western food production…… quite the shake-down ……

  • Richard Ward Anderson

    They are not Somali-Americans. They are Somalis who do not belong in America. Get them out!
