    So sure it happens in the USA as well





    An incident occurred in a supermarket recently, when the following


    was witnessed:












    A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha (A black gown & face mask) was
    standing with her shopping in a line at the checkout.


    When it was her turn to be served, and as she reached the cashier,
    she made a loud remark about the Canadian 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 line 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 lady's son have fought and sacrificed their lives so that people
    just like YOU can stand here, in Canada , 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 criticize
    the Canadian 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 you are here in Canada , 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.'

    Well Dave not everyone can be popular. Some people are very off putting

    You know I had heard that story before but it had a US twist to it. But I felt whether true or not it's the sentiment and message that had meaning

    Misty is from Canada, served in the Canadian Army, has very close ties with people here in the States. What she post is OK in my book
    .

    I don't think it's a bad thing to point out whether the story is true or not. In fact, I think it's a good thing. I also don't blame the original poster for posting a story that interested her.

    I didn't know that. It's amazing how two countries can share such a long border and yet can have such respect for each other.

    I think what people were objecting to was to point out that snopes said it was an untrue story and that it's been around for years, ignoring the words of the story.
    As if to say, false, been around years.

    Welcome aboard Jane. Always good to have another female view point.
