Muslim Boy in Spain Says He Is Traumatized By Hearing His Teacher Say "ham"

Spain: Muslim family denounces teacher for talking about ham in class

Jihad Watch

A teacher at Menéndez Tolosa institute has been denounced by a Muslim family from La Línea because their son, a student in the first year of high school, felt offended during the course of a geography lesson, institute sources informed this newspaper.
This paper has learned that the teacher was lecturing normally on the different climates of the planet and used the Granada town of Trevélez as an example of a cold, dry climate. As an anecdote, the teacher recounted that just such a climate was conducive to the curing of hams. Then the student asked the teacher not to speak of hams since the subject offended him as a Muslim.

According to what this daily learned from sources at the school, the teacher responded that he was simply giving an example and that he did not in his classes take into account the religion that his students practiced.

This could have been simply an exchange of views, but the child's family, which never came to talk to the teacher about this incident in class, did not hesitate to lodge a complaint against the teacher at the National Police station.

Although no one contacted him, apparently a relative of the child did go to the school to talk to the Head of Studies and protest the example that the teacher had given in geography class.

Agents of the Judicial Police went to Menéndez Tolosa yesterday so that the teacher could provide a statement about what happened during the class. In addition, officials have requested disciplinary and academic documentation of the child in this school and the previous center in which he was enrolled.

And someone correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Spain run the Muslims out of their country once already? May be time to do it again.

Religeous Jews also refrain from eating pork products - that doesn't mean that a we must never see,hear,or speak any word that references pigs. It doesn't mean that we cannot read our children 'The Three Little Pigs' or wear a T-shirt with Porky Pig on the front or look at the pigs in the petting zoo (or even hold one of those cute little piglets). Furthermore we do not expect our neighbors to protect us from these words,pictures,etc. ENOUGH ALREADY! And since when is a 13 year old boy even familiar with the word "offended'?
