Oktoberfest is the traditional Munich beer festival, misnamed slightly since it actually starts in September. You might think a beer festival would be a good place to dodge Muslims. Not so, it seems.

Visitors to the tent of the German beer-maker Hacker-Pschorr will be greeted with a ridiculous image showing a burka-wearing woman.



Anyone who queries this or complains to the company about it gets a standard form letter in replay, which concludes in menacing style as follows:
It is a picture and not a political statement; it depicts contemporary Munich in all its aspects. ... Please note that we refer for prosecution emails sent to us with contents that are insulting or incite hatred against peoples.

  1. Don't write or email complaints, simply boycott that particular stand and verbally tell your own friends why. The message will get round and money talks, so does withholding it. I see an excellent opportunity by the way for a spot of graffiti (aka 'street art') in those areas of the awrats ('shameful orifices' as Mohamed says in a hadith, whose body comprises ten such orifices, all of which must be covered until the grave covers the biggest 'shameful orifice,' the entire body.) Once the word gets round that a particular stand at the Oktoberfest is supporting this view of femininity, the party can really start.
