French Officials INFURIATE Muslim Market by Ordering Them to Sell These 2 Things


Local authorities instructed a halal supermarket in a Paris suburb that it must honor the conditions of its lease and sell products that appeal to the general population, or face being shut down.

The market has been ordered to sell alcohol and pork products. Islam prohibits Muslims from consuming alcohol or pork.

The local housing authority in Colombes told the Good Price market that it has violated the conditions in its lease that require the market to act as a “general food store,” adding that it violates French republican principles by catering to a certain group of people in society rather than serving all groups of people.

“The mayor of Colombes, Nicole Goueta, went there herself and asked the owner to diversify the range of products by adding alcohol and non-halal meats,” Jérôme Besnard, the mayor’s chief of staff, told the U.K. Telegraph.

“We want a social mix. We don’t want any area that is only Muslim or any area where there are no Muslims,” Besnard said.

He also stated that the reaction would have been the same had a kosher shop opened in the same area.
