Wikipedia describes Halal certified food in part asThe food must come from a supplier that uses halal practices. Specifically, the slaughter must be performed by a Muslim, who must precede the slaughter by invoking the name of Allah, most commonly by saying "Bismillah" ("In the name of God") and then three times "Allahu akbar" (God is the greatest). Then, the animal must be slaughtered with a sharp knife by cutting the throat, windpipe and the blood vessels in the neck (while the animal is conscious), causing the animal’s death without cutting the spinal cord. Lastly, the blood from the veins must be drained.

The Daily Mail in the United Kingdom reports in part:

Subway removes ham and bacon from nearly 200 stores and offers halal meat only after 'strong demand' from Muslims:   

  • 185 branches across UK and Ireland now sell halal-only meat
  • Halal refers to objects or actions permissible under Islamic law
  • Pork is forbidden and while other meat can be eaten, it must be sourced, slaughtered and processed according to strict rules
  • Subway said all halal meat served in its branches has come from animals that were stunned before being slaughtered   
  • Halal-only menu is in response to 'strong demand' from Muslim customers

What about non-Muslims (infidels) who want to be able to choose what they eat and not what Islamists demand that everyone eats along with them?

The description under the photo in the Daily Mail article states “Nearly 200 Subway branches across the UK and Ireland have cut out ham and bacon, selling only halal meat, in response to demand from their multicultural customers.”

Multicultural customers?  There appears to be only ONE cultural here, Islamists, demanding that Sharia prescribed Halal certified food be sold. 

Could this happen in the United States? Absolutely.

Freedom is the hallmark of the American way of life.  Sharia compliant food for everyone is not Freedom.  It is important to inform Subway now while this issue is in the public arena that the no-choice, United Kingdom Halal only menu is offensive and would be unacceptable to millions of American consumers.

Florida Family Association asked several Subway officials “Are you planning to add Halal mandated menu in America?”  Subway responded with:

Dear Mr. Caton:

Absolutely nothing has changed. Our bacon and ham aren’t going anywhere; you can still get these items in your local Subway store. We invite you to stop by your favorite Subway store to see for yourself.

Throughout the UK and Ireland, Subway has grown to nearly 1,700 locations. In 2007 a small percentage of SUBWAY® stores there began offering Halal-approved turkey-based meats to serve the diverse cultural and dietary needs of our customers, just as local supermarkets do.

Sincerely,
Peggy McCarthy

Ms. McCarthy’s response appears to side step the issue by making reference to an event that took place 7 years ago.  Florida Family Association requested a clarification from Ms. McCarthy.  However, a reply to this request was not received prior to the writing of this article.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to communicate concerns to Subway regarding their no ham, no bacon, United Kingdom Halal only menu.

The email for this article was deactivated after Subway reported that this would not happen in North America.
