Muslims Push for Taxpayer-Funded Halal Food in California Public Schools

This is an Islamic supremacist pattern: Michigan, New York and now California.
The relentless push to islamize the public square, and in this case the public school, escalates in California.

One parent said: “[The food will] make those kids perform well in school and be happy.” Muya said: “… if you feed a kid without no good food and then they end up getting sick, it’s going to cost later.” Now poor parenting is the lunch lady’s fault. Forgive me if I don’t buy the poor malnourished child propaganda. If this parent is so concerned, why not send their children to school with halal food?

Next thing we know, they’ll be blaming the lack of halal food in the school for why their children go jihad.

It’s not about the food, it’s about Islamic supremacism. Forcing non-Muslims to eat Islamically prepared food and to have to pay for a halal menu at considerable extra cost. Jizya American style.

The owners of the Mid East Market say the no-pork menu would be better for all the students, not just Muslims.

“Christians, Jews alike. They all agree that pork in general is a very unhealthy product,” said Ilaian.

Muya added, “They all think like having halal food is a really good option.”

The gall — Muslims saying Christians and Jews want it. The fact is, having the “bismillah allahu akbar” — in the name of Allah the greatest (the same prayer made when beheading infidels, kufar and apostates) — recited over the meat renders it inedible to many religious people. They cannot eat it on religious grounds. Many Christians, Hindus or Sikhs and Jews find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual (although observant Jews are less likely to be exposed to such meat, because they eat kosher). Some practicing Christians do not eat meat that has first been sacrificed to idols.

If Muslims want halal, they should send their kids to a madrassa.

Why not kosher food, and gluten free, and nut-free?

SAN DIEGO – Hundreds of local Muslim children are going home hungry from school every day and their parents say it’s because they’re not allowed to eat what’s on the cafeteria menu.

Somali immigrant Bilal Muya, who works on a Valley Center Farm, is Muslim, and so are his three children. For religious reasons, they can only eat foods that are halal.

“Halal is a permissible food you can eat,” Muya said.

“Basically, halal food is a type of meat that has been slaughtered religiously,” said Nezar Ilaian of Mid East Market. “So we don’t process it and we don’t repackage it.”

It is all organic and healthier, but it’s never pork.

The food, however, is not offered at schools in poorer communities where families depend on free school lunches.

“That’s a major concern,” said Muya.

Muya leads a group called the Food Justice Momentum Team. They have already met with the San Diego Unified School District about a pilot program in the City Heights area where there is a larger concentration of Muslim students. SD Unified spends $16 million a year on 22 million meals for students, but adding a halal menu could be a considerable extra cost.

However, as one can imagine, the meat is a bit pricey because it is considered hard to come by.

“The market for it in San Diego alone is already kind of restrictive,” added Ilaian.

The owners of the Mid East Market say the no-pork menu would be better for all the students, not just Muslims.

“Christians, Jews alike. They all agree that pork in general is a very unhealthy product,” said Ilaian.

Muya added, “They all think like having halal food is a really good option.”

“[The food will] make those kids perform well in school and be happy,” Muya said. “… if you feed a kid without no good food and then they end up getting sick, it’s going to cost later.”

Muya told 10News school districts in Michigan have made the switch.

“If it happened there, why can’t it happen to us?” he said.

10News reached out to the district for a comment, but no one was available.
