Der Ewige Chicken: The Sun’s Pizza Express Expose Is Another Blow For The Modern Nazi

DID you know the chicken on Pizza Express salads and pizzas is halal? You did? The Sun didn’t. But it just found out:

The facts come thicker than the Polish waitress’s Caesar dressing:

  All chicken killed in line with Islamic law
No mention of it on restaurant’s menus
Staff will only tell customers if they ask

The bacon is not halal. It’s not kosher, either.

Islam says chicken can only be eaten if the bird’s throat has been slit while it is still alive.

A verse from the Koran is also recited.

We get to hear not from a chicken, but from Saqib Mohammed, chief executive of the Halal Food Authority, who “said the Islamic method of slaughter is not cruel if performed correctly.”

Did you see what the Sun did there? Did you see its slight of hand? It said one set of beliefs offends another. And the Muslim side of the debate the “Secret” halal chickens is part of a conspiracy to… Well, what, make Pizza Express diners all Islamic and cruel? Just as the Jew has been portrayed time and time again as the shadowy
