Hey Tennesseans, did you know you’re now funding an all-Halal food pantry for your Muslim parasites?
For Cherif Ndaw, the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, or festival of sacrifice, involves sharing the meat of a sacrificial lamb with his family. This year, he couldn’t afford it. But with the help of the city’s newest food pantry, Ndaw was able to observe the holiday with the traditional meal — and adhere to the strictures of Islam by ensuring the food was halal.
That means it’s free from pork and alcohol and that the animal was slaughtered under specific guidelines, which causes the greatest amount of suffering for the animal. (See video below)
Jackson Sun “When I get this food, it makes me very, very happy because my family, my kids and my wife, everybody can eat,” said Ndaw, 57, who is originally from Senegal and has lived in Memphis for 12 years. “It was a good holiday for us. When I get that food from the masjid, I give thanks to God. If I don’t have it that day, I would not eat.”
Halal Food Pantry at Masjid Al-Mu’minun, the mosque on South Third Street, is the first food pantry in Memphis to distribute halal food exclusively. It recently received approval to become an official affiliate of the Mid-South Food Bank. It’s also the first halal food pantry in the country to be part of the food distribution system overseen by Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
The food pantry, which has just begun distribution, will serve all people regardless or religion or background who are food-insecure in the 38109 ZIP code and cater to the needs of food-insecure Muslims in 31 counties in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas. Mosque members involved in the project have already reached out to community and senior centers as well as officials at Mitchell, Westwood and Fairley high schools for referrals. They also delivered 50 turkeys for Thanksgiving at Goodwill Senior Home and have fed many people in the neighborhood after the traditional Friday prayer.
“There is a great need for food in general,” said Imam Rashad Sharif of Masjid Al-Mu’minun. “One of the particular cases that can give a clear picture is maybe a refugee, someone who is food-insecure and has not established their own connections and networks and ways around, and they go to a food pantry. But they find the food that is offered is food they can’t eat. Then they have a dilemma to go without food or to violate the religious sensitivities of what is or should be proper food. So this halal food pantry caters to that particular need.
“But at the same time, the need of people in general, regardless of religion, is great in this particular area.” Marcia Wells, communications director at the Mid-South Food Bank, said the food pantry’s application to become an affiliate was expedited because of the opportunity to serve a new community they had not been able to reach previously.
“Plus, this is just a dedicated group of volunteers,” Wells said. “They are very, very committed. … We’re just really excited about it and want to see them come on board.”
Nadeem Zafar, a physician and Mid-South Food Bank board member, approached the mosque about the project after he heard a story about some students who wouldn’t accept food distributed in backpacks at school for needy families because it didn’t meet Muslim dietary requirements. He decided things had to change.
“The point of getting this pantry connected with the food bank is because we have a national target from Feeding America to (distribute) 24 million pounds of food per year over the next four to five years,” Zafar said. “Now we’re only doing 12.4 million pounds of food per year.
We will never be able to reach that target without involving other minority communities, both culturally based and religion based. So there should be pantries with the Mexican-American community and then the religions like Hindu-American and Sikh-American and Jewish-American and all that. We just took a leadership role.
“We want this to be one of the best pantries in town so that we can go to other communities which are not Muslim, Sikhs and Hindus, and say, ‘Look, we have done it. We are more than happy to help you set these things up’ because then we have the infrastructure of the community, and get people to come together.
“There’s a lot of good that can come out by doing projects like this.”

In what has become an annual tradition, Muslims take to the streets and set as many cars on fire as they can. Reports put the number this year at 1143, but those numbers are usually underreported.
Alsace (h/t Alain) A total of 1193 vehicles were burned, announced Tuesday the Minister of the Interior, Manuel Valls, who also announced a “police activity increased compared to last year, “a total of” 339 against 290 arrests and 244 custody against 181 in 2011.
“There is no significant change on the arson of cars and two-wheelers in recent years,” said the minister. The minister recalled that the “latest figures are those of 31 December 2009″, when 1147 vehicles were burned, according to an official report at the time. Mr. Valls announced last Thursday that it would provide the number of vehicles torched in Saint-Sylvestre, a practice abandoned by his predecessors since 2010 who said they wanted to avoid escalation in violence by Muslims.

Terror-linked CAIR has posted an obviously doctored video of Canadian Sun TV host Michael Coren’s response to the Islamic Call to Prayer
Even though this was put together with clips of Coren that never aired, I know it represents what most of us feel when we are forced to listen to the ‘nails scratching a blackboard’ highly irritating sounds of the Islamic Call to Prayer…which to Barack Hussein Obama is the “prettiest sound on earth.”

This came in an email so I cannot verify its authenticity but the behavior noted is consistent with what Muslims do wherever they outnumber Jews. Perhaps some of our French BNI friends will be able to give us more insight into this growing problem related to Muslim immigration in France.

Numbers in the shadow
The database and the report jointly reflect the horror of the “desaparecidos” in Mexico. The integrated database, updated to February, 2012, contains 20,851 cases, but the report presented on July 17 states that the number of disappeared persons reached 25,276. On Tuesday, December 18, Proceso had access to the documents and analyzed the statistics and facts. This is the first information about the Calderon’s government human disaster.
Each disappeared person was assigned a number, the date, state, township or police station and town where the disappearance took place were noted, and the date of each particular report. The name of the disappeared person was noted, along with the age, gender, occupation, nationality and aliases, if this was known. The report also details whether there are photographs of the person.
Through the National Commission for Human Rights (Comision Nacional de los Derechos Humanos) it is known that there are hundreds or thousands more cases.
In that session, it was also agreed that, in order to comply with the requirements in the decree by which the Law for the National Registry of Facts on Lost or Disappeared Persons (Ley del Registro Nacional de Datos de Personas Extraviadas o Desaparecidas) was promulgated, information referring to the “general facts about persons not located” should be forwarded to the National System of Public Security.
The gross number of disappeared persons was 29,386, but it was cleaned up: 3,895 persons were found alive and 215 were found dead. The final number was 25,276. This report is not as detailed as the database, but is instead a summary, updated up to the day of the meeting, of the number of persons whose disappearance was confirmed.
