Geller: Islamic Supremacist Clubs Colorado Meat Plant for Resisting the Islamization of the Workplace,” Breitbart News, January 5, 2016:
If there is any pushback against the imposition of sharia and the Islamization of the American workplace, the running dogs in the media spring into action.
As if on cue, after demands by Muslim workers at Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan, Colorado for special privileges that non-Muslim workers don’t get, the Daily Beast has called upon its Luca Brasi, “Muslim comedian” Dean Obeidallah, to beat up, smear, and defame anyone who resists the imposition of Islam on our daily lives. That a barely literate clown (literally) such as Obedeillah would be given a platform to spew his bile speaks to the low and degraded state of “journalism” in post-America America. Obeidallah is hardly alone. He is but one in an army of Goebbels-inspired goose-steppers waging a stealth jihad and exploiting a sharia-compliant media that is hell-bent on destroying freedom and Americanism.
The Daily Beast’s smear piece is entitled, “So Now Muslims Can Be Fired for Praying?” In it, he gives a false reconstruction of events: “A Cargill plant in Colorado had always permitted its Muslim employees prayer breaks. But why were 190 of them suddenly fired?” In reality, Cargill has been exceedingly generous to the Muslim workers. Despite the fact that Cargill was accommodating the vast majority of Muslim daily prayer requests by providing specially created “reflection rooms,” i.e., prayer rooms, 190 Muslim workers walked off the job. The Beast’s beast Obeidallah neglects to mention that.
Obeidallah whines: “If 190 Christians were fired en masse from their jobs for wanting to pray for a few minutes, there would be outrage! Franklin Graham would be screaming from the rooftops. Fox News would break into its coverage of Christian victimization to do a special report on it. And, of course, GOP presidential candidates like
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
would be calling this a ‘jihad’ on Christians, just as he has used that term to attack LGBT advocates of marriage equality.”
But Christians do not make such outrageous requests. Christians do not walk off the job in the name of Jesus. Christians do not impose their religion on their co-workers. Christians don’t ask for special chapel rooms, or footbaths and the like.
“But when 190 Muslims were fired from their jobs in Colorado a few weeks ago for simply wanting to take short prayer breaks,” Obeidallah continues, “we didn’t hear a peep from these so-called advocates of religious liberty.”
Obeidallah doesn’t mention that these Muslim workers don’t have to pray at those times. They can make up the missed prayers later. They don’t stop production lines in Iran and other Muslim countries for prayer. This demand at Cargill is a way of imposing Islam on the kuffar. The Muslim workers are demanding special rights that the non-Muslims don’t have. Special rights for a special class — that is sharia. Muslims are superior – that’s sharia. And once they get their prayer breaks, they will take their demands to the next level, as they did at Hertz. At Hertz, Muslim workers demanded prayer breaks; Hertz agreed. But Muslims were disappearing during prayer breaks. Hertz responded by asking them only to clock in and out during prayer times. Muslims refused, and now Hertz is being sued for religious intolerance.
Obeidallah then claims that a recent poll “found that 82 percent of Americans believe preserving religious liberty for Christians was important,” while “only 61 percent said the same about Muslim’s rights to practice their faith. (That number was even lower among Republicans.)” He wants to talk polls? Fine. Let’s talk about polls of America Muslims who want to impose the sharia in America. According to a recent poll, 58% of US Muslims reject First Amendment criticism of Islam as a right. 46% want blasphemy punished, 12% want them killed.
Obdeillah speaks of religious liberty when there is no such liberty for non-Muslims and religious minorities who live under Islamic law in Muslim countries. On the contrary, there is not a single Muslim country in the world in which non-Muslims enjoy completely equal rights with Muslims. Obeidallah brings up the Civil Rights Act of 1964: “This iconic law states, among other things, that employers are required to provide a ‘reasonable accommodation’ so that employees can practice his or her faith.” The ironic thing is that no such civil rights exist in Muslim countries. Muslims in the U.S. enjoy more freedoms than they do in Muslim countries. Read More
