Little by little, Islam-certified halal food not only is being offered as an alternative lunch meal in France, at some schools, there is ONLY halal food, so Christians and other non-Muslim students have no other choice. And while halal-proponents try to claim that this ‘no-pork’ meat policy is good for Jews who keep kosher, in fact, the process for kosher slaughter has many requirements that halal slaughter does not. Accordingly, any Jew who keeps kosher will not eat halal meat.
Fdesouche (via Medforth) At Collège Émile Combes in Bordeaux, a halal beef sauté was offered on the canteen menu on Monday. A religious component that is causing great concern among some of the students’ parents. The movement Parents vigilants de la Gironde, founded by Reconquête! in 2022, warns against the politicization of children on the menu.

Cheese rolls, halal beef skillet, cauliflower, cheese and fruit. On the website Pronote, Collège Émile Combes in Bordeaux does not display an alternative to the main dish served in the canteen on Monday. “What is shocking is that the principle of secularism is being trampled on and that this is being accepted,” outraged Virginie Tournay, spokesperson for Parents vigilants in the Gironde region.
Parents are rightfully angered by move to ban pork sausages and bacon and replace them with Islamic barbarically-slaughtered meat in schools. While schools are going to extraordinary lengths to protect the interests of Muslim pupils, there is no such support for others who may not want to eat halal for various reasons.
