Both read and water are acceptable in the Muuslim diet. Put him on a diet of that.

He should be grateful he was not prosecuted under Sharia law, or his head would be rolling in the dust. Shut up and eat your pork and beans.

My religion requires king crab, caviar and lobster 3 times a day. When I can no longer afford it I will commit a crime so the taxpayer can pay for my religious necessities.

To think our tax dollars are paying for this nonsense. I always thought prison was a PUNISHMENT, not a damn luxury. Where does he think he is, CLUB MED?

Who says crime doesn't pay?

Go the whole 9 yards. Treat him completely like a Muslim since he claims to be a Muslim and his religion is so important then try him under Sharia Law. You won't have a lawsuit and the cost to taxpayers will be $0.00.

Since Halal and Kosher are so similar, I'm shocked that these dietary needs aren't accounted for in prison food planning. Would you all be so against him if his name was Benjamin Rosen and he was suing for Kosher meals? Not all Muslims are terrorists.

Yes, I would be against it no matter what his/her religion is. Prison is for people who commit crimes, and is suppose to be a punishment. WE the taxpayer should not be responsible for their selective food planning. When in prison, eat what is given to you, and if you don't like it, well tough, starve!

And not all Muslims are murderers. Since he has committed the ultimate violation of his faith, this transgression of eating non-Halel food pales to insignificance, don't you think?
