Via The Daily Mail:
Footage shows Charles Bloch, with his guide dog Carlo and girlfriend Jessica Graham, trying to get in the taxi before being told by the driver that he will ‘not take the dog’ because of his religion.
Mr Bloch, who is registered blind after being born visually impaired, had booked the cab using firm ADT Taxis in Leicester but was shocked to be told the driver would not take him upon collection.
His partner, 21, who was also born with a visual impairment and is registered blind, filmed the encounter on her phone and posted the footage – which now been viewed by millions — online.
It shows Mr Bloch, a student at De Montfort University, approaching the taxi and asking the driver why he could not take them.
The driver can be heard saying: ‘Me, I do not take the dog. It’s a choice for me. For me, it’s about my religion’.
Mr Bloch responds: ‘By law you can’t deny us…it’s against the disability act of 1995,’ but the driver appears adamant and refuses to take the couple, instead saying he will need to call head office.
We have the same issue here in America, especially in the “culturally enriched” areas of Minnesota which have been flooded with Somalis.
As Robert Spencer wrote on a similar article from the UK earlier this year:
Islam hates dogs: “Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.’” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50
“Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.” — Sahih Muslim 3811
“Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.” — Sahih Muslim 551
