SPAIN: Muslim child tortured by his geography teacher


Muslim pupil offended by the word 'jamón' in class in Cádiz

The parents of a Muslim boy who attends a secondary school in La Línea, Cádiz province, have reported their son’s teacher for an incident in the boy’s geography class which the child said caused him offence as a Muslim.

The teacher, José Reyes Fernández, with more than 20 years in the profession, was explaining to the class how the cold climate in Trevélez, Granada province, aided in the curing of the village’s most famous local product, jamón serrano. The boy told his teacher that hearing the word ‘ham’ in class was offensive to him because of his religion and asked his geography teacher to stop referring to the product which caused him offence.

El Mundo newspaper reports that the boy’s parents then reported the teacher to both the National Police and to the courts. They placed a denuncia against the teacher for psychological ill-treatment in the context of xenophobia and racism.

Bin Laden predicted Al Andalusia would be within the Ummaah in his lifetime. He was right. Adios.

I read elsewhere that the Muslim schoolboy claims he is so traumatized that he cannot attend school. That must be breaking his teacher's heart. Myself, I'm starting out the New Year with roast ham.

The fact that average people put up with that crap explains why we'll all soon be living in Muslim nations.

I bet they won't be reading "Green Eggs and Ham" anytime soon.

So just the mere mention of the item is considered harassment?

You. Must. Be. Shitting. Me.

I had a conversation with an Immam when a similar contoversy flared in Britain a couple of years ago, this time about cartoon pictures of flying pigs on a junior classroom wall.

He assured me that Moslems are not offended by pigs as such, nor by the word 'pig' or of images of them.
What they object to is the eating of them and no, they don't care if others do so, just not themselves.
