French Muslim barred women from his store during weekdays

French Muslim barred women from his store during weekdays

Jean-Baptiste Michalon, above, has been fined 500 euros (£390) for imposing different opening hours on men and women at his store in the French city of Bordeaux.

According to this report, the owner of the general store who converted to Islam in 2012 created an uproar when he pasted a notice outside his store in June 2015 indicating that “sisters” could only enter on Saturdays and Sundays, while “brothers” were told they could shop on weekdays.

Faced with a tide of negative reaction, Michalon quickly abandoned the plan … and his shop has since shut.

He explained:

We put this in place at the request of the ‘sisters’ who preferred it when my wife was behind the counter. It is a shop where we sell clothes.

Michalon’s lawyer Tristram Heliot said the shop-owner:

Admitted it was a blunder and tactless.

Politicians slammed the act, as did Bordeaux’s Chief Imam Tareq Oubrou, who said:

We never saw this during the time of the Prophet. Markets were mixed. It seems a bit strange to me in a world where social mixing is an established culture.

    Poor, ignorant, stupid, gullible fool. He is a pathetic victim of the religious drivel he has imbibed and believed. Now he has lost his means of earning a living.

    Interesting the way a change of mind occurs when money is going to be lost. I see our “friends” in the Vatican are up to their necks in a massive money laundering exposure but it is OK. They say they are tackling the problem.

    Sorry to go OT, but here’s some rather encouraging news regarding what may very well be M. Michalon’s favourite terrorist organisation.

    @AgentCormac : That’s a happy read. I also read about women escaping back to the West when they experienced the reality of life with ISIS: i.e.they were sex slaves for the so called warriors, no NHS, no money, primitive conditions.

    These moronic converts are always more extreme than those “born into Islam” because they have to prove themselves by being more Muslim than Muslims. If people such as Michalon believe the Islamic way of life is the way to live, they should try living in a Muslim controlled country.

    There seems to be an “a” missing from the “hat tip” above.

    A notice to the effect that, “A female assistant will be on duty at the following times…” would warn the male customers who cannot control their libidos to stay away at those times.
