Paris police ban pork street party in Muslim area
According to mainstream Islamic belief, there is no such thing as "a Muslim area". The entire universe is "THE Muslim area," allotted by Allah to Muslims to do with as they would. By Pierre-Yves Roger for AP:
PARIS – French police have banned a street party whose organizers planned to serve alcoholic cocktails and pork sausages in a heavily Muslim neighborhood of Paris, authorities said in a statement Tuesday.
Police said the party, called "Sausage and Booze," could have been viewed as a provocation in the Goutte-d'Or neighborhood of northern Paris, where many Muslims pray on the streets because there are not enough mosques. Alcohol and pork are forbidden by Islam and the party had been slated for just after Friday's main Muslim weekly prayers.
Organizers said they were holding the party to protest Islam's encroachment on traditional French values in the neighborhood. Muslim groups had announced a counterparty serving halal, or religiously approved, food.
Police banned both events.
Urban Affairs Minister Fadela Amara — who is of Algerian descent — said that she doesn't ordinarily believe in banning street parties. "I'm for people gathering, drinking and having a laugh," she told RTL radio. But she said it was right to ban this party because it would have been "extremely dangerous" given its ties to the far right, "and all that implies about the hatred behind it."
If being "extremely dangerous" and "all that implies about the hatred behind it" is truly the standard for banning a gathering, then Friday prayers should be banned forthwith. But of course that is not the standard. The standard is halal, the set of laws that Mohammad set for Muslims to follow, and for non-Muslims to be forced to follow, by violence or threat of violence. Pork and alcohol are both banned by halal law. Parisienne authorities are merely enforcing halal law on non-Muslims in this formerly non-Muslim city. Are bars and nightclubs still allowed in Goutte d'Or? Is wine still served in restaurants? Will Goutte d'Or be renamed Goutte d'Ordures?

La goccia -- goutte d'or -- che fa traboccare il vaso.

One of the 'rules for dhimmis', in countries where Muslims rule, has traditionally been that they are forbidden to display wine or pork in public. Banning this street party means that in that part of Paris, de facto, Muslims rule and non-Muslim French have been forced to act like dhimmis.
That is disgusting. It is unconscionable. It must be defied.
I hope those who organised this party will gather more supporters and find a way to defy the ban; even if it is as simple as holding open-air BYO-basket pork and wine picnics in every park and public square in Paris throughout the summer.
Non-Muslim citizens of Paris will have to 'take back the streets' - all the streets - or they will lose Paris.

It is absurd that anyone allows Islam to change their laws or culture. I wish there was no Islam in freedom-loving countries who have built real civilisation where women have rights too. We must defy Islam at all cost to our well being and rights.
I hope burqas and minarets are outlawed everywhere they are invading.
