    Deal approved in Muslims' suit against McDonald's [W:40]

    a judge on wednesday finalized a $700,000 settlement between mcdonald's corp. And members of michigan's muslim community over claims a suburban detroit restaurant falsely advertised its food as prepared according to islamic law.

    Ahmed ahmed, the dearborn heights man who represents plaintiffs in the class-action suit, claims he bought a chicken sandwich in september 2011 at the restaurant but found it wasn't halal. Islam forbids consumption of pork, and god's name must be invoked before an animal providing meat for consumption is slaughtered.

    It probably isn't worth the effort for a commercial restaurant to prepare halal food. That $700k is probably more than they grossed from the Muslim community.

    I posted it because it was interesting. I was waiting to see the reply about the lawyers and where the money went and the response... but nobody seems to have picked it up or read that far.

    And as for the end of your post... why would I be scared of "Muslim"? Because a faction of Muslims have introduced a level of carnage and mayhem into western society that is the new norm? Because the Mulsim community is largely silent about the terrorists acting in the name of their religion?

    I'm curious... why would you post that? Are you afraid to explain why?

    Why?

    because its a brutal, stupid, barbaric ritual and the merchants knew that if they put the label HALAL MEAT on their meat, decent people wouldn't buy it because they wouldn't support the barbarism.

    But that's not what happened here. McDonald's falsely advertised their products as halal. They weren't forced to do anything, and they certainly weren't forced to lie about their products.

    So it isn't about McDonalds so much as it is about your hatred of Muslims. This just another lame-ass troll thread using McDonald's as bait.

    Nice try... but a fail.

    You seem to suffer from reading comprehension problems.

    I was interested to see if the folks here picked up where the money was going.

    As far as Muslims... I don't hate Muslims, but I do find their silence on matter terroristic distasteful. The word "hate" is one I use in a very limited, almost non-existent manner... but I do hate the twisted terrorist oriented Muslims.

    How is it "having that problem" when the two situations, as you describe it, are nothing at all alike. In the situation here, McDonalds decided to advertise something they apparently where not providing, got busted for it, or at least did not expect a jury to buy their story, so settled the lawsuit. That is not even remotely like the situation you describe.
