‘A halal state banquet at Buckingham Palace’

Jeg er ikke blevet premierminister for at præsidere over imperiets afvikling, sagde Winston Churchill. Fra engelske Express – The Queen hosts a halal state banquet.

“The Queen held a halal state banquet at Buckingham Palace for Turkish President Abdullah Gul tonight and promised British backing for his country’s bid to join the European Union.

She celebrated ever-closer political and economic ties between the two nations, despite concerns over allowing the predominantly Asian and Muslim country into the EU.

“We have come through a great deal together to develop what is, today, a very modern partnership,” she said. “In Europe, the British Government remains committed to working with you to secure your place in the European Union.”.

The 85-year-old monarch and 170 British and Turkish guests sat down to a completely halal state banquet of lamb from the royal estate at Windsor in the palace ballroom.

It’s a matter of politeness that it’s halal. The President and his wife are guests of the Queen. We wouldn’t do a separate menu for them so everyone eats the same,” a palace spokeswoman said. …

Meat used at similar banquets for the King of Saudi Arabia in 2007 and the Emir of Qatar last year were also slaughtered in a traditional Islamic way to ensure they too were halal. Guests tonight were still offered a selection of fine wines, however.”

  1. Hvilken fornærmelse af de fornemme gæsten, at de flydende varer ikke var halal.

  2. Når så englænderne kommer på statsbesøg i Tyrkiet, sætter de tyrkiske værter sig selvfølgelig også ned og spiser svinekød sammen med deres gæster. Det manglede da bare…

  3. Stakkels gamle dronning, som jo ikke selv bestemmer, hvad hun skal sige eller servere.

  4. Husk Obamas leflen og bukken for Saudiarabiens konge. Hans pinlige tale i Cairo, hvor han undskyldte for alt. 9-11- ugerningsmændene var ikke terrorister men “voldelige ekstremister.” Eksemplerne på denne bøjen sig, og føjen sig er utallige.

    Resultatet – endnu mindre respekt fra de islamiske lande der kun respekterer en leder der holder fast ved egen værdier og normer og har styrken til det.

    Reagan fik befriet gidslerne i Teheran i 1979 på et øjeblik, fordi iranerne var klar over at ham kunne de ikke løbe om hjørner med.

    Bare ikke overfor de dyr der slagtes halal. Religiøse dogmer über alles.
