Christmas treats have been taken off a menu and replaced with ‘winter delicacies’ over fears the phrase would offend Muslims.
The West is under siege; the influx of Muslim migrants has been devastating throughout Europe. And while most European authorities are in full denial and appeasement mode like these Austrians, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has declared the upcoming year to be a year of “revolution” to match the Trump victory in America.
“Christmas BANNED from being mentioned on menu over fears it would offend Muslims,” by Jon Rogers, Express, December 22, 2016:
A function held at the Austrian embassy in Germany still served traditional festive fare such as Lebkuchen but rebranded them as ‘winter delicacies’.
The event was a presentation by the Chairman of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, Aiman Mazyek, who has written the book What Do Muslims Do at Christmas?: Islamic Faith in Everyday Life in Germany.
The invitation to guests, from ambassador Nikolaus Marschik, was described as a “cosy get-together with winter delicacies.”
A reporter attending the event wanted to know exactly what the Austrians suddenly considered “winter delicacies” and asked the embassy for a clarification.
The ambassador then admitted that the traditional Christmas foods had been rebranded out of respect for Islam.
The Austrian embassy said the description was meant to include Lebkuchen, the local name for gingerbread usually served at Christmas, as well as Kipferln, a type of croissant, and beer and wine, and that the term had been chosen out of consideration for Islam.
Journalist Gunnar Schupelius said: “It is advent season, we are on the territory of the Austrian Republic, they invite Christians and Muslims for a talk about Christmas and offer Christmas delicacies that cannot be called Christmas delicacies.”
Ambassador Marschik admitted it was “a foolish mistake.”….
