    The owner says that he won't serve Muslims because they are committing terror attacks in France.

    Tbh he's ruined his own business- I doubt a lot of customers are going to go to it now that the owner is famous for being an Islamophobe...

    People are going to stop going to this restaurant as a protest and he'll lose customers. Eventually, he'll have to change or his business will go bust.

    He will probably pick up all the nutty right wing folk now; although I don't really understand why he's singled out muslim women when it's the man species doing most of the killing. Muslim women are mostly harmless

    It's his right to ban them, whether he loses customers, that's his problem.

    So that gives someone the right to treat their fellow human as unequal? Ok then. SMH.

    You miss out the fact that he has already apologised about his behaviour and is being investigated by the authorities.

    Of course! No religion in France. They can kick out every religious person they want.

    Maybe they should to truly exemplify their secular values.

    I don't think as a nation that France should have the authority to control someone's business to that extent. If it's private property and a private person, then yes, they should have the right to ban who they want. People that disagree with their business practices will go elsewhere for the same goods if it bothers them.

    No surprise the Islamophobes will be quick to defend his discriminatory behaviour.

    Discretion. It's up to the landlord/owner to decide. In this case, it's morally wrong, but there's not much you can do other than protest.

    Do you not think that labelling an opposition with a pejorative in such a way is harmful to constructive discussion?

    Anyone who supports this restaurant owner's policy is Islamophobic to be honest. The guy hates all Muslims so he won't serve them. That's pure Islamophobia.

    There's no discussion to be had, it's clear to see he's a bigot.

    OK, do you not think that using the term bigot as a method of dismissal is harmful to constructive discussion? If you don't agree with someone, you don't dismiss them, shame them and invalidate them. You first attempt to understand their position, then explain why you disagree with parts of it. If you want to actually change someone's mind, being a mindless zombie regurgitating buzzwords isn't going to convince anyone.
