Fine. If I were to say I don't want to buy this chicken because the money will go to a Catholic/Jewish organisation, I would still be discriminating against those people. Also, why exactly do you not wish for your money to go to an organisation run by Muslims?
That in itself is Islamaphobic
Most women don't even wear the niqab and those that wish to cover up tend to wear the hijab. It's not too different to what a nun would wear. Should we ban those as well?
Also, we are a society that has democracy at it's very heart, and democracy allows for freedom of religion and freedom from religion. If these women believe that they are acting out a religious duty, and you ban them, you are at direct odds with democracy
Most meat in the UK is stunned, and the traditional Western method was not really taking care of animal welfare at all, and slaughtering the animal in a way that wasn't on par with the method used in Muslim countries at the time. Machine slaughter was never ever about animal rights. It just made the meat a whole lot cheaper. The meat companies then used that as an excuse, to make even more profit
Well sorry if I've not noticed this from you
So says the Daily fail. I've never known a Muslim to buy meat from a mainstream supermarket, and if the supermarkets were to sell halal or kosher meat, and not label it, how is that the fault of Muslims or Jews?
I didn't say that it is widespread here. I mentioned how tolerant the UK actually is. I did however mention how it is widespread in other European nations
Anti Semitism exists all over the world. I'm not denying it. Also, it's interesting that anti Semitism in Muslim countries increased post Islamic golden age. During the golden age, the Muslim countries were the more tolerant ones. It's not a myth in Islamic countries and nor is it a myth in any other country, bar Israel
So you think it's just Muslims right? Look on stormfront, and see some White nationalists blaming every thing under the sun on Jews(and Muslims, and Black people and every one who doesn't happen to be the same as them)
The thread is about Europe. Again, I'll say that the UK is pretty tolerant, but these issues are far worse once you get to what is actually Europe
