Muslims Are Not Terrorist

Summary: Two Muslim women were recently kicked out of a restaurant in France as the restaurant owner called them “terrorists.”

An owner of a Paris restaurant kicked two Muslim women out of his restaurant Saturday because they were wearing headscarves. A video of the incident was taken, and has been circulating rapidly on social media.

The video was taken by a customer at the restaurant posh Le Cenacle, which is in the Paris suburb of Tremblay-en-France. In the video, the man can be heard calling all Muslims terrorists as well as saying he does not want the two Muslim women in his restaurant.

“Terrorists are Muslims, and all Muslims are terrorists,” the man said. “This is a secular country and I have a right to an opinion… I don’t want people like you here.”

The two women can then be heard saying they do not want to be served by a “racist.” They then left the restaurant without any further escalation of the confrontation.

The Committee Against Islamophobia in France quickly jumped in, offering legal and psychological support to the two Muslim women. The committee also labeled the incident as “Islamophobic” and said that it “led to the humiliation of two young Muslim women.”
