This Islamization of Britain is proceeding apace. In 2014, a non-Muslim mom claimed her 5-year-old daughter was not fed the lunch she had brought to daycare because it was not halal. In 2016 some thousand Muslims blocked London streets chanting Allahu Akbar, demanding an Islamic caliphate. In 2018 a Saudi newspaper boasted that London has 423 new mosques and 100 Shariah courts.

Now comes the latest conquest on the road to forcing non-Muslim Brits to assimilate to their “new culture.” Via the Daily Mail:

Fast food giant Subway has removed ham and bacon from almost 200 outlets, and switched to halal meat alternatives in an attempt to please its Muslim customers.

It has confirmed turkey ham and turkey rashers will be used instead in 185 of its stores, where all the meat will now be prepared according to halal rules.

The chain, which has around 1,500 outlets across the UK, explained its decision by saying it had to balance animal welfare concerns with ‘the views of religious communities’.

Make that community, singular. Orthodox Jews in Britain who practice the religious doctrine of kashruth, which like halal forbid the eating of pork products, appear quite content to eschew Subway in favor of restaurants that comply with their dietary restrictions. But not Muslims, who insist the restaurant not only come to Muhammad, but that it stop serving “heathen” food to anyone.
