Default An incident occurred in a supermarket

An incident occurred in a supermarket recently, when the following was witnessed:
A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha was standing with her shopping in a queue at the checkout.
When it was her turn to be served, and as she reached the cashier, she made a loud remark about the English Flag lapel pin, which the female cashier was wearing on her blouse.
The cashier reached up and touched the pin and said, "Yes, I always wear it proudly. My son serves abroad with the forces and I wear it for him".
The Muslim woman then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing and killing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.
At that point, a Gentleman standing in the queue stepped forward and interrupted with a calm and gentle voice, and said to the Iraqi woman, "Excuse me, but hundreds of thousands of men and women, just like this ladies son have fought and sacrificed their lives so that people just like YOU can stand here in England, which is MY country, and allow you to blatantly accuse an innocent check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen. It is my belief that if you were allowed to be as outspoken as that in Iraq, which you claim to be YOUR country, then we wouldn't need to be fighting there today. However - now that you have learned how to speak out and criticise the English people who have afforded you the protection of MY country, I will gladly pay the cost of a ticket to help you pay your way back to Iraq. When you get there, and if you manage to survive for being as outspoken as what you are here in England, then you should be able to help straighten out the mess which YOUR Iraqi countrymen have got you into in the first place, which appears to be the reason that you have come to MY country to avoid.

Apparently the queue cheered and applauded.
IF YOU AGREE... Pass this on to all of your proud English friends..


I just did.............!!!

And as I posted before when the Iraqi lady asked the cashier when we were going to stop bombing Iraq the quintessential British reply should have been "When you've paid for that lot sunshine"

The guy could have been on holiday and saw his opportunity to repeat his remarks he made in California.

Exactly - which is why checking snopes is always a good idea before posting to prevent this kind of response!
