Muslim Sues Dunkin' Donuts for "Racial Discrimination"

One of Allah's servants is suing Dunkin' Donuts. He owns a franchise and they won't renew his contract because he refuses to sell pork products.

"A discrimination lawsuit filed by a Muslim Dunkin' Donuts franchisee who was not allowed to renew his contract with the chain because of a refusal to sell pork products can proceed, a U.S. appeals court ruled Tuesday.

The decision reversed an Illinois federal court judge's 2004 ruling that rejected Walid Elkhatib's argument that Dunkin' Donuts discriminated against him based on his race by making the sale of breakfast sandwiches with bacon, ham or sausage a mandatory part of his franchise agreement.

According to court papers, Elkhatib, a Palestinian Arab, has been a Dunkin' Donuts franchisee since 1979, before the company began selling any pork." (source)

Sounds right to me. Their franchise, their rules. Their name, their menu. Aside from the fact that the Egg & Bacon on a Croissant is the only thing I get at Dunkin' Donuts and I'd be mighty annoyed if I made the effort to park and go in and they didn't have the main ingredient...
