It was revealed this week that Subway, one of the largest fast food outlets in Britain, has decided to exclude pork and ham from its menu in around 200 of its stores. Furthermore, what meat remains will be exclusively halal – meat from animals slaughtered in accordance with sharia law.

In a statement, a Subway spokeswoman said “All halal meats are certified by the appropriate halal authorities.”

Recent undercover footage shows two French women’s rights activists entering a cafe in the Paris suburb of Sevran.  Upon entering the cafe, the two women were shocked as they were met with hostility from the notably all-male customers. One of the male customers told the women, “It’s best to wait outside.  There are men in here … In this cafe, there is no diversity.” Another customer explained, “In this cafe, there is no mixing.  We are in Sevran, not Paris.  Here there is a different mentality.  It is like back home.”
