  • Really Subway?

    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

    Next Lent, I'll demand that all Subways stop serving their sandwiches with meat on Friday.

    How stupid.

    I gave up on Subway a while ago after I discovered Jersey Mike's. Makes Subway look like cheap dog food. In fact, I had a Jersey Mike's roast beef and provolone today for lunch, and it was, as usual, almost orgasmically good.



    Lanie, you nailed it perfectly: they would not kowtow to Catholics demanding that they only serve veggie or fish subs during Lent (or even just on Fridays). They won't stop serving roast beef in Western markets because Hindus are unhappy. But they bend over and take it when Muslims outcry instead of just taking their sorry asses down the street to some place that better suits their sensibilities.

    This is one of those times when Western-looking Muslims need to get seriously noisy and demand that Subway offend the Hell out of Muslims elsewhere, outright refusing to kowtow, and tell them to take their fucking medicine and like it.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

      I would think those sandwiches would be hard to eat with your face covered.

        And after we deal with halal Subway, we're coming after the kosher delis.
        Enjoy.

          Care to cite a bunch of violent Jews demanding Kosher meat?
          The year's at the spring
          And day's at the morn;
          Morning's at seven;
          The hill-side's dew-pearled;
          The lark's on the wing;
          The snail's on the thorn:
          God's in his heaven—
          All's right with the world!

            Even in Israel, Kosher and Non-Kosher is offered with McDonalds.

              No, I would not. But there is no point because nobody (including the linked article) has cited a bunch of violent Muslims demanding halal meat.
              Enjoy.

                Okay. And there are still non-halal Subway stores in Ireland and the UK.

                Or were you saying that a kosher McDonalds has non-kosher items on the menu? Because they don't.

                Most Mickey D’s in Israel are not kosher. If you see milk shakes on the menu or cheese burgers, you know it is not kosher. Yet, there are a good number of kosher ones.

                  The violence is an implied threat.

                      Of course. Because all Muslims are violent.
                      Enjoy.

                        You know what? Fuck'em all. "Demand" in the sense of, "Do this or we'll make trouble for you?" Fuck that. I don't care if it's halal, kosher, vegetarian/vegan or some other unnatural food practice, if you don't like what's available at Subway, eat at Evo's (gag me).

                        Now, if we're talking market-style "demand," as in "supply and demand," that's a different story. I fully support a business's right to carry (or not carry) products that appeal to its customers (or put them off). We used to joke that the chain grocery store in our (heavily Jewish) neighborhood had a Gentile section. My local Safeway has a Mexican foods section, an Asian foods section and a HUGE organic section. Do I get pissed because they run out of 39-cents-a-pound bananas and only have nasty, warty, expensive organic bananas? Sure. But that's what most of their customers here want, so that's what they carry. I just have to try to beat the other normal people to the regular bananas.
                        "Since the historic ruling, the Lovings have become icons for equality. Mildred released a statement on the 40th anniversary of the ruling in 2007: 'I am proud that Richard’s and my name is on a court case that can help reinforce the love, the commitment, the fairness, and the family that so many people, Black or white, young or old, gay or straight, seek in life. I support the freedom to marry for all. That’s what Loving, and loving, are all about.'." - Mildred Loving (Loving v. Virginia)

                          I agree. For the most part the supply and demand thingy is what keeps the doors open.
