How Come U.S. Files Discrimination Lawsuits On Behalf Of Muslims?
The Obama Administration’s taxpayer-funded Islamic defense program has been quite busy this week, filing several discrimination lawsuits on behalf of Muslims in different parts of the country and holding Justice Department meetings to discuss prosecuting “anti-m*********e speech.” The legal actions come on the same week that the White House and various federal agencies—including the Department of Homeland Security—hosted a special workshop to provide members of radical Islamic groups with direct access to U.S. government funding, assistance and resources. Read all about that here. Now the administration is flexing its legal muscle in its ardent quest to befriend the enemy. A federal civil rights agency known as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed discrimination lawsuits against companies in Nebraska, California and Colorado for discriminating against Muslims by not accommodating prayer breaks and forbidding a headscarf on the job. The government sued meatpacking plants in Greeley Colorado and Grand Island Nebraska for religious and racial harassment because dozens of Muslim employees were “denied prayer time” during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The lawsuit seeks changes to policies and procedures to accommodate Muslim workers, payment for past and future damages and punitive damages. In a third lawsuit filed this week the EEOC claims that an outdoor apparel store discriminated against a Muslim female job applicant in northern California because she wore a headscarf known as a hijab. The company has a longstanding employee dress code banning any sort of head covering but the government asserts that in this particular case it’s discriminating on the basis of religion. Also this week, the Justice Department met with a coalition of Islamic groups that demand the administration criminally prosecute anti-Muslim rhetoric as hate speech. Besides investing more resources to combat discrimination against Muslims, coalition leaders want Attorney General Eric Holder to “make a strong public statement” condemning hate crimes, harassment and discrimination against Muslims. http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2010/sep/u-s-files-discrimination-lawsuits-behalf-muslims Muslims get to pray, or else there is a lawsuit, but Christians can't even have a nondenominational prayer at graduation ceremonies.The majority of the people in the US have steadily lost their rights to accommodate the rights of the minority. I think we are all tired of 70% of the people being forced to live the way only 20% of the people want.

The story of migration as it has been unfolding in the U.S. with Mexicans, and Europe with Muslims, is quite similar and will be more of a lasting intergenerational cultural experience because these immigrants are either avoiding or resisting assimilation. So the issue will have a long shelf life... More

"Now the administration is flexing its legal muscle in its ardent quest to befriend the enemy." Muslim-Americans are Americans and are entitled to all the rights forthwith. They are not "the enemy," that's just offensive. What ever happened to believing in liberty and justice for all?

You're well on your way to that riot you speak of.
Answered By: Cob Bollum - 9/2/2010
It amazes me of the ignorance of some people thinking that Islam is wanting to befriend America. Islam is not Americas friend but their enemy. Muslims are believers in Islam and live by those rules. We are nothing but infidels to them. We have an administration that has slipped into office like a snake in the grass and... More

Answered By: Debra H - 9/2/2010
I'd like to know what kind of jobs are not allowing Muslims to wear head scarves or take prayer breaks. Each and every one probably has a very good reason for not allowing those things, and yet the Muslims, aided by the racially obsessed Obuma Cabal, just love to make a stink about it. They're not discriminating... More
