British Soldier Banned From Harrods on Remembrance Day
Here's one to file under "But They Support the Troops":
Remembrance Day (November 11) is the equivalent of our Veterans Day. It's honored in Canada, Australia, and of course Britain, where this last Remembrance Day a British soldier was not allowed to enter Harrods department store in London lest his uniform upset the other shoppers.
Lt. Daniel Lenherr had just taken part in a parade honoring those who died defending Britain's freedom when a security guard refused to let him into Harrods with his wife and 1-year-old son, in accordance with Harrods policy.
British shoppers should note that rivals Selfridges and Harvey Nichols are open-minded enough to let uniformed soldiers shop in their stores.
On a tip from Steve.

So the owner of Harrod's is a Muslim? He has a Middle Eastern/Muslim name. What a pity Britain is giving itself to the Muslims.

The owner, an Egyptian Muslim, is actually the father of the late Princess Diana's late boyfriend, Dodi Al Fayed. He has been saying for years that there was some kind of conspiracy behind the "murder" of Diana and his son.
He's actually an Anglophile (someone who wants to be British), and has applied for citizenship many times.
He thought that by buying Harrods it would help his cause, but the Queen doesn't like him, and openly resents his purchasing what is considered a British landmark of royalty and good taste.
If he really wanted to get "in" with the Queen, his first step should be dropping that ridiculous policy of not allowing soldiers in uniform in the store!

Ugh, couldn't someone besides this blasphemous perverted jerk have responded?!
If the British were smart, they would send the Middle Easterners/Muslims home.
