If someone had pissed him off, mate. He would've bought a gun. A knife is rude, messy and its a pain to wash out the stains.

Lets just say that the tension between christians/jews and muslims is at an all time high over here. And they tend to raise hell when they can't find halal meat, therefore we christians do the same when a store only sells halal meat. Its become a running joke over here.

Basically, its the same thing as kosher, expect for the name. Technically there is nothing wrong with it, i just don't eat halal meat out of spite.

Just south of Stockholm, Sweden. 70% of the population in this city is middle eastern. (Irani, Iraqi, Syrian, Assyrian.)

And what has caused this spite, apart form some people having specific dietary needs? Just curious.

I ordered some saxophone and clarinet reeds online. I'm planning on taking some lessons and learn how to play the instruments.
