CHRISTMAS treats have been taken off a menu and replaced with 'winter delicacies' over fears the phrase would offend Muslims.
A function held at the Austrian embassy in Germany still served traditional festive fare such as Lebkuchen but rebranded them as 'winter delicacies'.
The event was a presentation by the Chairman of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, Aiman Mazyek, who has written the book What Do Muslims Do at Christmas?: Islamic Faith in Everyday Life in Germany.
The invitation to guests, from ambassador Nikolaus Marschik, was described as a cosy get-together with winter delicacies.
A reporter attending the event wanted to know exactly what the Austrians suddenly considered "winter delicacies" and asked the embassy for a clarification.
The ambassador then admitted that the traditional Christmas foods had been rebranded out of respect for Islam.
Na, using muslims as an excuse to do what they wanted to do anyway.
Islam is offensive. Ban it.
I spent most of my life living in areas with a sizable Jewish population and they NEVER complained about Christmas.
well...I say fine...serve goat’s eyeballs...
I wonder why! What do they possibly think could happen just by offending a few Muslims???
These cowards will learn, as all cowards throughout history have learned, that appeasing aggressors will only lead to more aggression.
I frankly don’t give a damn what Muslims do for Christmas as long as they aren’t blowing up. They might well do what I do for Muslim holidays — nothing.
Jesus, the Christ, is the foundation of Christmas.
Not the foundation of winter?????
Or better yet, pork loin roast.
Where, when and how soon will this crap end. The conclusion will not be pretty.
islam is all about cheating and putting their male organs into goats, kids and women from behind.
Kill islam or let them copulate you, ignorant retards.
islam prospers because of retards and morons and the ignorant.
I’m thankful Kwanzaa hasn’t reared its ugly head.
First time in about 3 years.
I don’t understand. Why would they be worried about offending muslims? The rank and file muslims are just interested in living their lives in peace. /s
Islam is a war plan.
