No Ham in Norway

Kiss Your Ham Goodbye, Norway

August 9, 2013 by Baron Bodissey

The brief report below from French television concerns the cultural enrichment of Norwegian schools. The father interviewed in the clip describes what happened to his children in school when the number of "children of Norwegian background" dropped below 50%. When the number of enriched students reached a certain critical mass in the classroom, non-Muslim children were no longer able to bring ham sandwiches to school in their lunches.

The children were compelled to accommodate their classmates "because others think that [eating ham] is illegal". That is, the perception of the illegality of ham forced the de facto enforcement of non-Norwegian law in a Norwegian school. That law is, of course, Islamic law, and Norway is in the process of becoming a sharia state.
