"That lawsuit followed a federal jury's ruling earlier this month that the chain did not discriminate against Elkhatib for refusing to renew his franchise agreement because he would not sell breakfast sandwiches containing ham, bacon or sausage. Muslims are forbidden from eating pork and many also refuse handling the meat."
So why would an observant Muslim go into this business in the first place?

Why? So that he can cry racism and sue the franchise! There's plenty of muslims who enjoy playing the victim and sue just about anyone. I heard of a few incidents here in Canada too, the sad part is they seem to win their lawsuits!
