Another demonstration of supremacist intolerance by the religion of peaceniks and embarrassing surrender by dhimmi administrators.
A school lunch worker was fired for accidentally serving non-halal meat in a multi-faith public school in England. The error came to light after a local government official noticed it. A disciplinary hearing found that the lunch worker had made a simple mistake with no malicious intent. The school policy in the multi-faith state run school is to serve all halal meat, regardless of the child's religious faith. Many Muslim parents forced the principal to apologize for the error and are now demanding that more senior members of staff at the school be fired for "offending" their faith by feeding their children non-halal meat.
Why are they forcing non-Muslim students to eat halal meat, which is usually more expensive when sold with a halal label? If Muslim parents want their children to eat halal, they should send bagged lunches or send their children to private schools with halal meals, rather than force their faith on non-Muslims. Non-Muslims should not be forced to eat halal in a British state school lunch room. I hope this lunch lady will win her appeal of her dismissal in the courts. (thanks to Danielle)
One commenter nailed it: "When in Muslim countries, one must conform to Muslim customs and practices. When in non-Muslim countries, one must conform to Muslim customs and practices. And so it is that all the students at this school, non-Muslims as well as Muslims, are served halal meat. That seems to be just fine with everyone -- who cares if some Christian parents object? But this "dinner lady" mistakenly served non-halal meat to the Muslim students, and she is summarily fired, without a second chance. Not content with this small triumph of Islamic supremacism, Muslim parents are demanding that other school officials be fired as well. And no one in Britain appears to be willing to say that in Britain, people should be expected to conform to British customs and practices, and that is the end of the matter."
Dinner lady sacked for serving Muslim children with non-halal meat at multi-faith school

- Birmingham school has both Muslim students and those of other faiths
- All 1,400 students at Moseley School are served Halal meat only
A dinner lady has been sacked for accidentally serving non-halal meat to Muslim students at a multi-faith school.
The incident outraged parents at the 'halal-only' Moseley School in Birmingham, and they have forced the headmaster to apologise for 'insulting' their faith.
The member of staff has been dismissed after the 'unintentional error' on December 12 last year recently came to light.
Dinner dismissal: A dinner lady has been sacked from multi-faith Moseley School in Birmingham, for unintentionally serving non-halal meat
All 1,400 students at Moseley school are served halal meat, regardless of their religion.
It has not been specified what type of meat was served, but the person responsible for serving the food was dismissed following a disciplinary hearing last Monday.
Parents were informed of the mistake this month, and reacted with outrage, forcing headteacher Carl Jansen to apologise for the ‘unintentional error'.
However, Muslim parents are demanding others be held accountable for the mistake, which they say call 'an insult to our faith’.
‘The school have failed the children,' one parent said yesterday. ‘How did this meal get into the school system to be fed to the children?
‘It's just shocking that dietary requirements haven't been met.'
‘It is a disgrace that this could be allowed to happen and we demand more action is take,' a father of a sixth form student said yesterday.
‘It could not just be the error or one lady, there must be people at the top responsible too who also need to be sacked. It is an insult to our faith.’

Not all parents have taken the news with the same shock, saying the dinner lady should not have been sacked over a mistake.
‘It's a little bit harsh to sack somebody because of one little mistake,' father-of-three Barry Jackman said.
‘Yes, we have to respect religions and standards which are expected - but it was a one-off and surely the lady doesn't deserve to lose her job.’
The details of the non-halal school dinner only came to light last month, when provider Birmingham council department Direct Services confirmed the mistake.
Sheila Walker, head of Direct Services, said: ‘This was found to be due to an error and was unintentional, nevertheless, we have failed to ensure the integrity of Halal only food at Moseley School.’
A Birmingham City Council spokesperson added: ‘We of course apologise for any concerns this has caused.'
