BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A lunch meeting between a leading parliamentarian in Belgium and counterparts from
Iran has been canceled because the beer-loving Belgian could not stomach a ban on alcohol.

"Even for the tolerant Herman De Croo, that was a bridge too far," De Croo, a Dutch-speaking Liberal, told De Standaard daily Thursday.

De Croo, president of parliament's lower house, had been due to entertain the speaker and members of the Iranian parliament Friday during their visit to Belgium -- famous for its diversity of beer brands.

But he said lunch had been canceled because the Iranians, who as Muslims do not drink alcohol, wanted their hosts to do the same.

"I did not receive such demands in writing. But ... I was indirectly asked not to serve alcohol," said De Croo.

The visit ran into further trouble after Iran's parliament speaker Gholamali Haddadadel insisted he would not shake hands with the female president of Belgium's Senate.

Anne-Marie Lizin, a Socialist, then canceled their meeting. She said in a statement that Iranians should respect local customs in Belgium, just as Belgians should in Iran.




Belgium just gained some points on the "We're a badass country" scale.

"Kaffir Al Harami must die. We know no Kaffir. All Kaffir will recognise what is good for them. They will recognize Allah, Imam & Islam. Or we eliminate the Kaffir. This is our job to expand power of Sharia."

And they tell me Islam is a religion of peace. You should also note that "Kaffir" is not a real word, they made that word up to insult non-Muslims, so I say that all Muslims are sandy assholes.

How is "no alcohol" more repressive than "no cannabis"?

Would the White House disallowing guests from getting stoned make the news?

Me no think so.

Is cannabis OK there? I didn't think so. Do they behead drug users there? Yep. Is the addition of an alcohol prohibition more repressive? Yep. For further simplification, which may be needed:
Cannabis prohibition = repressive
Cannabis + Alcohol prohibition = more repressive
Do the math
