French Public School Refuses Pork Alternatives

And just as horsemeat is becoming trendy

Print Email
Arveyres, France.(Wikipedia)

A few weeks ago, a study showed that anti-Semitic attacks in France had risen 58% in 2012. And, despite an upsurge in the popularity of horsemeat in France, today it was announced that a public school near Bordeaux in southern France would no longer accommodate its Jewish and Muslim students with meat alternatives to pork in school lunches, presumably because of budgetary constraints.

In a statement, the school’s management said that out of a total of 180 pupils, 28 do not eat pork. The school said the students who don’t eat pork may switch to a vegetarian menu. “They have enough things to eat at the cafeteria, including proteins,” the school management is quoted as telling the radio station.

In other words, let them eat cake.

Most of the anti-Jewish violence in France is perpetrated by frustrated, angry Muslims, often in bleak suburban ghettos like Sarcelles. The big issue is not whether kosher Jews in some small towns will have to eat (healthier) vegetarian lunches, but whether France will succeed in assimilating this population. So far, it is failing.

Not sure what’s wrong with a vegetarian option. Certainly any non-pork meat option would not be kosher in any case.
