VIDEO: Muslims DEMAND “Pork-Free” Products from WELFARE FOOD BANK!!

Get. A. Job.

Welfare is intended to help us when we are unable to help ourselves. Its is a stop=gap, not a way of life. There is no way that I would expect a FOOD BANK, which relies largely on donations, and mainly are charities, to cater to my ‘special needs’ simply because I do so in the name of religion. How many are not willing to work, or came to America and immediately started having children so we ‘couldn’t’ kick them out? How many came here with no real marketable skills? How many came here knowing ANY English?

This Muslim group is protesting the food banks and say its “a basic human right” to get “proper and healthy food” :



Food shelves can be a life line for people dealing with poverty and hunger.

But many in the Somali-American community say finding a food shelf that caters to their religious dietary restrictions is almost impossible.

“Some food shelves are trying to meet the need, but some of them already got canned beans that have already been mixed with pork — and there is a literacy issue here,” said community activist Fartun Weli.

A group of first-generation Somali Americans says they need help in developing a food shelf that specializes in healthy foods that do not contain pork or pork byproducts.

“It’s about human rights also, basic human rights to get the proper food and also healthy food,” said Imam Hassan Mohamud.

With signs in hand, they marched to the Hennepin County commissioners’ office to ask Peter McLaughlin for help. Most live in his district and feel he can help them help themselves.

McLaughlin and the group disagree over the availability of halal or kosher food at food shelves in Minnesota.

He did say they would need to petition all county commissioners for the money to make this food shelf a reality.


OK, for real? We are supposed to support, as a tax paying nation, a food bank that caters to a Muslim population? Everyone falls on hard times, but food banks are meant to help you through, not to provide every aspect of food for your entire family. You have to supplement the food you get with things *gasp* THAT YOU BUY. There really isn’t ANYTHING there that you can work with? Is nothing free from the PC DRAMA that every American cow-tows to? Maybe the Muslim Mosques could have special food banks for their congregations to use in these situations.

What do you think? Should we pay for Muslim Food Banks?
