    Muslims demand non Muslims fast. IN ENGLAND!

    Christ almighty, give them an inch and they'll take a mile. It'll be a national requirement soon. You English REALLY ought to watch these cunts.
    It's Ramadan, and you're fasting!
    Islamic rules imposed on non-Muslims

    2008 WorldNetDaily
    Non-Muslim members of a town's council have been informed by e-mail they need to follow the strict fasting requirements of Islam during Ramadan because their Muslim colleagues are.
    "Once again the selfishness of Islam has struck non-Muslims," said a commentary at Islam in Action 08, which reported on the issue. "Muslims continue to show us that they have no respect for the beliefs of non-Muslims nor can they be trusted. They were given trust by being voted into these positions and now they are using the power given to them against non-Muslims."
    According to a report in the Daily Mail the orders came from officials at the East London municipality called Tower Hamlets.
    The town has established a reputation for being progressive by calling its get-together for staff at Christmas a "festive meal." But now the e-mail instructions say drink and food should be restricted for all council members no matter their religion during Ramadan, and other accommodations are being made for Muslims.
    Those accommodations include breaks right at sundown during several meetings so Muslims can eat immediately, and a reduction in the number of meetings so they "do not clash" with the Ramadan demands, according to the Daily Mail.
    But even the more tolerant members of the Labour-run council now are rebelling, condemning the instructions as favoring one religious group over others.
    Stephanie Eaton, leader of the Liberal Democrat faction, said she would be ignoring the restrictions, and continuing to eat food that traditionally has been provided to council members throughout their meetings.
    "We fervently believe that the rules of any one religion should not be imposed upon others," she told the paper. "I was rather disconcerted to see that the arrangements put in place for Ramadan, which we support for Muslim colleagues, have been imposed upon on councilors."
    "This sends out the wrong message to our community," she told the paper. "Our community consists of a huge number of different religions, all of which should be valued, and no one religion should be accorded more status or influence than others."
    During Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sundown, and this year's holy period runs from the start of September. Council meetings routinely begin at 6:30 p.m. but it will not get dark for at least an hour, so Muslims are being granted a 45-minute break in the middle of the meeting to eat.
    It was John Williams, the council's head of democratic services, who sent the instruction. It said. "It is requested that members do not partake of any refreshments until after the Iftar refreshments are served."
    On the paper's comment page, one participant said, "I do not care what a person (sic) faith is just DO NOT impose them on me. WHAT NEXT I ask!"
    It's Ramadan, and you're fasting!

    That's a ridiculous statement, just because the Daily Mail reported it doesn't mean it's NOT true.
    As in just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you.

    If you read the article, the instruction that non-muslims should fast was given by a non-muslim.

    If you read more closely it aint asking or telling non-muslims to fast at all *shock, horror*

    it is asking non-mulims to refrain from eating/drinking refreshments during the evening meetings, at which the muslim members will be at starting at 6.30pm.....

    U.K. Ramadan Imposed on Non-Muslim Council Members



    Once again the selfishness of Islam has struck non-Muslims. All members of the Tower Hamlets Council in East London have been asked to follow the strict Islamic rules of Ramadan. Muslims continue to show us that they have no respect for the beliefs of non-Muslims nor can they be trusted. They were given trust by being voted into these positions and now they are using the power given to them against non-Muslims. What happens when Muslims become the majority of this council? Will they just vote in a law that says the whole town has to obey the rules of Ramadan? I am sure they will try.....don't vote Muslim.





    Muslim council chiefs ban ALL members from 'tea and sandwiches' in meetings which take place during Ramadan

    By Daily Mail Reporter
    Last updated at 1:59 AM on 29th August 2008


    Councillors have been ordered not to eat during town hall meetings while Muslim colleagues fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

    All elected members at Left-wing Tower Hamlets Council in East London have been sent an email asking them to follow strict Islamic fasting during September no matter what their faith.

    As well as restricting food and drink until after sunset, the authority's leaders have decided to reduce the number of meetings throughout the month so they do not clash with the requirements of Ramadan.



    The seven remaining meetings scheduled to take place will also include special prayer breaks to accommodate Muslim councillors.

    But some members of the Labour-run council say the demands favour one religious group over the others.

    Dr Stephanie Eaton, leader of the Liberal Democrat group, said she would ignore the restrictions.



    She said: 'The Liberal Democrats have enormous respect for the contribution of all faith groups and cultures to the life of the community of Tower Hamlets.

    'But we fervently believe that the rules of any one religion should not be imposed upon others.

    'I was rather disconcerted to see that the arrangements put in place for Ramadan, which we support for Muslim colleagues, have been imposed upon all councillors.


    'We object to the request that non-Muslim councillors observe the fasting rules for Ramadan. This sends out the wrong message to our community.

    'Our community consists of a huge number of different religions, all of which should be valued, and no one religion should be accorded more status or influence than others.'

    This is not the first time the council, which has a broad ethnic make-up, has courted controversy.

    It has been criticised in the past for being 'overly politically correct' after calling its staff Christmas meal a 'festive meal'.

    And it has also staged a Bonfire Night party which featured a Bengal tiger instead of Guy Fawkes.

    During Ramadan, strict Muslims are obliged to fast between sunrise and sundown.

    They must abstain from all food, drink, gum chewing, tobacco, and any kind of sexual contact.

    The holy period falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, and this year it begins at the start of September, which means there are more daylight fasting hours than if it fell in later months.

    Most of the council's debates are scheduled to start at 6.30pm.

    But with the sun not setting until an hour later, devout Muslims will be unable to break their fast - known as Iftar - until midway through the meeting, where they will be given a 45-minute break.

    Food and refreshments, such as sandwiches and biscuits, are normally laid on at town hall meetings.

    Controversy has arisen because all members have been told not to eat until after sunset, out of courtesy to their Muslim colleagues, and so there will be food left for them later in the evening.

    In the memo to councillors, John Williams, the council's head of democratic services, said: 'It is requested that members do not partake of any refreshments until after the Iftar refreshments are served.'

    Council bosses said the arrangements were in place 'where it is not reasonable to expect members observing Ramadan, and who are required to attend a formal committee or other meeting, to travel home in time for sundown in order to break fast and undertake prayers'.

    No Bible Zone-U.K.


    I have been told that Muslims were coming into the West for the freedoms here. If this were true then why are they slowly turning the West into the Middle East part 2, as they form their own communities in non Islamic countries and start enforcing their own rules? The answer is simple, they do not respect non-Muslims and have no intentions of assimilating.

    You can't preach the Bible here, this is a Muslim area.
