    Or, we could abstain from unacceptable anti-Muslim rhetoric, and consider the situation rationally. I mean, really, your comments are practically a caricature of blind hatred for Muslims.

    It's up to McDonald's, and presumably the franchise owner, if they want to offer halal (or kosher, or any other religious dietary rules). Adding or canceling such a program is at their discretion.

    However, if they offer halal food, and don't do it right, the customers have a right to sue. From that point forward, it's basically up to the courts to figure out how to handle it. In this case, McDonald's chose to settle, and stop offering halal food at those two locations.


    There, no Macs for the remaining 41% now, but Ahmed X 2 gets to keep his 700K! Is everyone happy?! No! Why? Cause some think USA is freaking Arabia!
    Ahmed gets a portion, as do his lawyers, a Detroit health clinic and the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn.

    I don't see what the community is losing, really. If McDonald's were not preparing the food properly, the devout Muslims weren't going to eat there anyway. The Muslims who don't care about halal will continue to patronize the restaurants.

    Or perhaps you're outraged that Muslims can't eat McDonald's? You a shareholder, perchance?

    The food just sucks. It doesn't matter if it's halal, kosher, southern, midwestern, southwestern or whatever. If you're eating at McDonalds and you're worried if the food is halal, it doesn't matter. What you should be worried about is whether or not the food is actually fit for human consumption. Halal, my ass. I think the Muslim eating at McDonalds has bigger things to worry about than whether that piece of **** he or she is about to eat is halal or not.

    It's McDonald's. You should feel lucky if your food never hit the floor.

    Errrrrrrum.........










    (I just don't see any reason to care much about this. Halal, kosher, or chili-cheese, everybody gots their preferences.)

    1. "Arabs" doesn't mean "Muslim". There are plenty of Christian Arabs in the world, and in Michigan in particular. Justin Amash is an Eastern Orthodox - and so was Spenser Abraham.

    Not to mention all the Arabs who don't care one way or another.

    2. A company had announced that it discontinues a product. So? What is the problem? Would we be worried if a fast food chain X drops a mango-cucumber-salad-with-tofu? Vegans are people too, aren't they?

    Good news for you, they sell pork flavored bullets now.

    Who would want McDonald's instead of Falafel King?

    Or actually resembles something you and I would call "food."
