Ban Mention of Pork in Dearborn Schools to Prevent Muslim Obesity?


It seems that Blue Cross and Blue Shield dolled out $73,000 not to fight obesity, but to promote Islam.

Dearborn is set to be a part of a new program that aims to study and help prevent obesity, particularly among Arab American children, thanks to a nearly $73,000 grant.

Suha Kridli, assistant professor at Oakland University’s School of Nursing who secured the grant from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation for the “Improving Health Behaviors in Arab American Youth” project, said she selected Dearborn for its high concentration of Arab Americans.

The plan, she said, is to for an advisory committee comprised of Dearborn public schools faculty and community members to offer suggestions for changes to the curriculum, like removing mention of foods that Arab Americans typically don’t eat, like pork, and including mention of holidays that they celebrate, like Eid.

Kridli typically conflates Arabs with Muslims. The move to remove pork from books has nothing to do with fighting obesity. If Muslims don’t eat pork, it would make more sense to mention foods that they don’t eat, rather than foods they do eat.

It’s just another case of imposing Islamic religious and cultural norms by any means on the rest of the country.

    can you say dhimmi? what a crock. why not spend the money on educating the muslims on our laws and culture. or perhaps, a one way ticket for each muslim back to the country of origin

    Well, fat muslims will be easier to catch. I think what is needed here is a FATwa, against junk food. If they are getting fat it must be the will of Allah. For He sees all that you shove in your mouth. Allah is all knowing, Wise.

      Folks! folks, Spoons made Rosie Odonnell(sp) fat.
      I’m sure its those pesky Spoons here, too.

    Sounds like stealth jihad in the guise of the “no child’s fat behind” crock.

  • DogmaelJones1

    Let’s send Suha Kridli, as a gift, year’s supply of pork rings, and perhaps a full-length poster of Porky Pig, signed by Porky himself.

    It doesn’t have to do with anything Arab but everything to do with Islam and Muslims.

    Kridli typically conflates Arabs with Muslims.

    You are correct! Sort of the same way you always conflate jihad with being terrorism, even though jihad manifests both violently and non-violently, is always only in the cause of Allah, and only waged by Muslims alone, while terrorism, in stark contrast, is always and only violent, is perpetrated for a myriad of causes, and is universally perpetrated by all cultures and societies.

    It’s just another case of imposing Islamic religious and cultural norms by any means on the rest of the country.

    In other words, it is part of the scheme to gradually Islamize America. Otherwise, known as non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, which for the most part you mostly ignore because if it isn’t violent, then it isn’t terrorism. It must be a slow news day, because you actually reported on it.

    • liz

      Don’t you think it’s splitting hairs to point out a difference between jihad and terrorism when 99.9% of all terrorism these days is carried out by Muslims in the name of jihad?

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Don’t you think it’s splitting hairs to point out a difference between jihad and terrorism when 99.9% of all terrorism these days is carried out by Muslims in the name of jihad?

        Splitting hairs? Mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage is ubiquitous throughout the infidel world, yet it isn’t opposed whatsoever, even though it’s non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad for the nefarious purposes of mass Muslim infiltration and eventual demographic conquest. Indeed, since it isn’t terrorism, which is always and only violent, it isn’t construed as being a threat. Yet, you have the audacity to claim that conflating what is really jihad as somehow being terrorism is splitting hairs. Heck, you sound qualified enough to be John Kerry’s personal assistant! Thank you for your contribution.

        By the way, I’ve never heard of a Muslim perpetrating terrorism in the name of jihad? What are you smoking? Have you ever heard of a gullible useful idiot infidel? You are the persona of one.

        • liz

          You said “jihad manifests both violently and non-violently”. Terrorism would be the violent manifestation of jihad, as opposed to “stealth jihad”, the non violent manifestation. Both are jihad, the ultimate goal of both is the same, and both are carried out by our enemies. You could call it “terrorism” and “stealth terrorism”.
          Splitting hairs.
          And you could qualify as Obama’s personal assistant – you have the arrogant condescension down pat.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Terrorism would be the violent manifestation of jihad

            Except that terrorism, which is always and only violent, is universal and perpetrated by all societies and cultures and for all kinds of various reasons and purposes. Whereas jihad, on the other hand, is always and only waged by Muslims alone and only specifically in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme.

            Heck, maybe I was wrong. Excuse me, you aren’t even qualified to be John Kerry’s personal assistant. Sorry.

            and both are carried out by our enemies.

            So the infidel Russians wage jihad? Again, what are you smoking?

  • Adam

    Lovely waste of dhimmi money. Take the mention of pork out to avoid their sensibilities and place an emphasis on Eid, which is where you “fast” to then justify stuffing your face until you drop dead in some cases. What could possibly go wrong?

  • Elizabeth capecod

    This is Baloney! Pork is no worse than beef .Little by little we cater to islam…..Where are the atheist fanatics to protest separation of religion?
    What’s next in this crazy town – sharia?

    • Jeremy White

      Maybe they like to rape pigs? Cows are too big for them? This way they don’t eat their next unwilling partner?

  • GSR

    It’s all because they are in Dearborn in significant numbers. There’s a lesson here for all to learn. And the lesson is, numbers matter. And how do numbers grow? Immigration, that’s how.

  • iluvisrael

    I read years ago that when muslim populations reach about 6 or 7% in any host country, they begin to agitate, make demands and start trouble. Want proof? Look at many euro cities with their ‘no-go’ zones. It will happen here too if we continue to let 7th century vermin in.

    • Elizabeth capecod

      They truly are a scourge. Liberals will be so shocked when muslims start corralling gays for extermination.

      • iluvisrael

        And take away a woman’s right to murder her own child. I always say, useful idiots are useful – until they aren’t.

        • Elizabeth capecod

          The war on women will take on a whole new meaning!

  • PDK

    Islam is the misogynistic religion of hate and the bane of the white man’s higher culture of civilization, on the march pursuing their superiority.
    Liberalism is the failure to mature or transcend insanity, on the march and pursuing their superiority, which they have fairly much achieved here in America.
    Why not spend only 73.00 dollars, force the Islamics to eat pork, and then see if they get fat?

    Just the place to open Gay Mohammed’s Flaming Bacon Whiskey Bar.

  • Jarkko

    This is obviously imposing sharia on america.

  • Alphamail

    This may actually be a ray of hope.

    If you tell the American sheeple about honor killings they nod off; if you expound on Huma Abedin their eyes glaze over; or if you speak about Obama’s ubiquitous support of the Muslim Brotherhood they’ll remind you you’re a racist and that conservative Clive Bundy used the word “negro.”

    We need to mount a serious palatable defense against creeping Islam.

    The answer is simply to tell the American people what this phony obesity prevention program really means – it means they can no longer eat bacon.

    Stop talking politics and start talking bacon.

    No BLT’s, no bacon and eggs, no Joey Chestnut, no breakfast special at IHOP, no sneaking SPAM when nobody’s looking, no GEICO talking pig, and no TV dog crying “B-a-a-c-c-o-n-n.”

    In the UK, eighty-six KFC’s just eliminated bacon burgers to satisfy Muslim demands. What’s next, do we ban the words “Coney Island?”

    Try eliminating Nathan’s at Yankee Stadium or a sausage and egg biscuit at McDonald’s in Omaha or Spam and eggs in Lahaina…c’mon just try it!

    The only way to seriously stop Sharia is with an “I love bacon” campaign.

    In fact I just put on my Kermit and Miss Piggy T-shirt with Kermit declaring “I love bacon,” and I’m on my way to walk the streets of Dearborn.

      it was announced that many – or maybe all – Subway Restaurants will stop serving bacon and ham sandwiches and start service Halal meat. Do we see Islam starting to take over America or what??

  • Jeremy White

    Pork should be mandated to be served at every public place in America. You don’t have to eat it, but it must be available. Maybe they will starve to death then? One can hope!

  • William Bauers

    America needs to write a BACON song and we should play it continuously :D

  • truebearing

    If Kridli was sincere in helping the fat little Muslims lose weight, she should have made a plan that includes healthy portions of pork in all of the meals. Call it “Pork for Porkies” and watch the pounds melt off!

    What a bunch of fools giving out grant money like that. All kids, of all denominations in the US have a problem with getting fat. They need to exercise more (playing and having fun), less computer and TV time, less high frucose corn syrup, less fat, and less stress to perform like a dog and pony show. They also need not worry about their futures by cutting taxes, cutting government waste. Now send me the $73K.
