MUSLIM TEARS: Manufacture Tells Muslim Employees To Take a Hike If they Can’t Follow Prayer Policy

Published

on

From TheBlaze:

Muslim employees are outraged by a policy change that was recently implemented by Ariens Manufacturing, an equipment manufacturer based in Brillion, Wisconsin, as employees can now only leave to pray during meal breaks.

According to WBAY-TV, until last Thursday, Muslims employed by the company were permitted to leave the production line two times during their shifts to pray, as a total of five prayers per day are required by the Islamic faith.

Muslim employees would dole their duties out to fellow employees during these prayer times, which lasted five minutes.

But Ariens Manufacturing now wants Muslims to pray during meal breaks instead — something that Islamic adherents are pushing back against.

While the new policy impacts 53 workers, just 10 of them said they will stay in their current role under the new regulations, according to WBAY-TV.

“We are asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks in designated prayer rooms,” the company said in a statement. “Our manufacturing environment does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production.”

Muslims employees said that praying only during meal times goes against their faith due to the fact that this doesn’t align with the proper times for invocations, with some saying that they were handed unemployment papers if they refused to comply. Ibrahim Mehemmed, a former equipment painter, is one former worker who said that he was forced to leave.

“We pray by the time,” he told WBAY-TV. “So they say, ‘If you don’t pray at the break time,’ they give us this [unemployment] paper to just leave.”

Ariens Manufacturing has said, though, that employees like Mehemmed are welcome to come back to work if they abide by the policy, or if they find shifts that don’t coincide with their prayer times.

“We respect their faith, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not,” the company said in a statement.

Ariens Manufacturing will hold a news conference Monday at 2 p.m. to discuss the company’s prayer-on-the-job policy, which drew pushback from dozens of Muslim employees.

The Brillion-based company’s Chairman/CEO Dan Ariens will address the media. Action 2 News will be there and have coverage tonight.

Read a statement from Dan Ariens below.

Before last Thursday, Somali Muslims employed by Ariens were allowed to leave the production line twice a shift to pray two of the five prayers their faith requires of them daily. They prayed five minutes at a time, designating their specific duties to colleagues.

A spokesperson for the Brillion-based equipment manufacturer said in a statement, in part:

We are asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks in designated prayer rooms. Our manufacturing environment does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production.”

Those affected said praying only during a meal break goes against Muslim practice.

“If someone tells you, ‘You pray on your break,’ and the break time is not the prayer time? It will be impossible to pray,” said Green Bay Masjid Imam Hasan Abdi.

Former Ariens equipment painter Ibrahim Mehemmed held out his unemployment packet and told us, “We pray by the time. So they say, ‘If you don’t pray at the break time,’ they give us this [unemployment] paper to just leave.”

“We are open to any of the employees returning to work under the new policy or will look for openings in shifts that do not coincide with prayer time,” read a statement from Ariens. “We respect their faith, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not.”

An Ariens spokesperson says the policy change impacts 53 workers, ten of which have indicated they wish to stay in their current positions under the new policy.

According to law listed by the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, “an employer does not have to accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs or practices if doing so would cause undue hardship to the employer… [such as] decreased efficiency” (read the law here).

“I have been 35 years in America and I’ve never heard of a company that is not allowing its employees to pray five minutes. It is absolutely discrimination on its face,” said Adan Hurr.

“Allow me to pray so that I can go back to work and do what I love to do, which is working for Ariens. But we are not allowed to do that. Yesterday what happened was just a travesty,” he said.

Imam said he has concerns for the future of the Muslim population in Green Bay. “If they got fired now, there’s no way they’ll get to stay in Green Bay. They’ll have to move to find work,” he said.

Ariens Company tells Action 2 News they “put a considerable amount of effort into finding a solution that allows for employees of Muslim faith to pray during work hours.”

“We met with members of our Somalian employee group to better understand their needs and consulted with local representatives of Muslim faith,” a spokesperson wrote.

Dan Ariens, President and CEO of Ariens, released this statement:

A letter from Dan Ariens:

I understand that the headline and story featured on WBAY appears to be alarming news about Ariens Company. It is alarming to me as well. Unfortunately this headline does not tell our story very well. As many of you know, my family has operated manufacturing businesses in Northeast Wisconsin for more than 80 years. You also may know that we have only been successful by operating under a set of Core Values. We will: Be Honest, Be Fair, Keep our Commitments, Respect the Individual and Encourage Intellectual Curiosity. We work very hard as a team to accommodate all employees with our vision of Passionate People who Astound our Customers. In our manufacturing plants we work as a team to build the best power equipment product. Like any accommodation, we put a considerable amount of time into finding a solution that would work for both the employees and the company. Our staff is committed to providing a great place to work for all employees and have met with members of our Somalian employee group to better understand their needs. We consulted with local representatives who are of Muslim faith to help provide sustainable solutions. We want to be clear that no one was terminated here. We are asking employees to use two scheduled breaks for religious observation, and are offering designated prayer rooms. Additionally, we are also offering to look for positions on other shifts that might better accommodate prayer obligations. This change affected 53 employees. More than ten of the employees have contacted Ariens Company to say they will return to work under the new policy. And we welcome their return. We continue to be open to any of the employees returning to work under the new policy and I have sent a letter to each of them re-stating that offer. Let me be clear: we respect their faith, we respect the work they have done at Ariens, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not. Headlines do not make a story. If you want more details, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Dan Ariens

BREAKING From Minnesota! ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACK!

Published

on

This is what decades of lax immigration standards and outright anti-American politicians have brought upon our great nation.

We are now getting reports that a former St. Catherine University student has been charged with setting fires on the college’s St. Paul campus.

But where this story really gets terrifying is when we find out what she told police.

According to the official complaint which was filed on Friday, she claimed to have done this because she had been reading about how the U.S. military destroys schools in Iraq or Afghanistan and she felt that she should do exactly the same thing here, to the nation which was generous enough to welcome her, and who knows how many more chain migrants she has brought in with her.

According to documents she also went as far as to say “You guys are lucky that l don’t know how to build a bomb because l would have done that”

The accused is Tnuza Jamal Hassan, 19, of Minneapolis and she was arrested Wednesday afternoon in a campus dorm lounge. I wonder who was paying her tuition. Probably the already overburdened American Tax Payer.

Patrick Nwaneri who’s legal services were retained by Hassan’s family only stated they were at a loss as to why Tnuza did this. A woman who was identified as Hassan’s older sister was in tears outside Hassan’s first court hearing on Friday as she declined to comment on the matter. In addition to her sister, Hassan has a mother in the area, who could not be reached for comment as of Friday’s arraignment.

MINNESOTA MUSLIMS BRUTALLY HONEST: ‘WE WANT SHARIAH’
Street interviews capture on video anti-American, anti-1st Amendment views

The Cedar Riverside section of Minneapolis is home to the University of Minnesota, some tasty ethnic foods and brutally cold winters. It’s also a known hotbed of Islamic terror recruitment.

Al-Shabab, the Islamist group based in Somalia, has had a field day there over the past six or seven years.

Dozens of young Muslims have left the streets of Cedar Riverside, referred to by some Minnesotans as “Little Mogadishu” for its high concentration of Somali refugees, to travel abroad and fight for terrorist groups. Some have joined Somalia’s notorious al-Shabab, which slaughtered 147 Christians at a university in Kenya last month, while others have opted for ISIS in Syria. Their goal is the same – to join their brothers in the fight to establish a Shariah-compliant utopia known as a caliphate.

But one would expect those who walk the streets of this quiet neighborhood to be a bit less fanatical in their views, right?

Let the questions begin

On Friday a camera crew with the David Horowitz Freedom Center released a video posted to Robert Spencer’s blog, Jihad Watch, in which documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz captures Somali men and women on the streets of Cedar Riverside answering simple questions.

Their answers to questions about Islamic law, American law and issues of peace and freedom were revealing.

Several of the Muslim men told the interviewer it was “easy” to be Muslim in America. They said persecution was non-existent. They’re free to worship as they please.

One Somali-American stood out from the rest.

“This is a free country; that’s the beauty of it. We love America, it’s a great country, freedom of choice, freedom of religion, so we don’t have any issues,” said the neatly dressed man with a sport coat and tie.

Things devolved from there.

One young man with dark sunglasses and a big smile, followed by another in a plaid dress shirt, and another with long hair stuffed under a Brooklyn Nets baseball cap, all said they would prefer to live under Islamic law rather than American law.

“I’m a Muslim. I prefer Shariah law,” the man in the dress shirt said.

“Shariah law, yes,” said another.

“Of course, yeah,” said the one in the Nets baseball cap.

Asked if most of his friends felt the same way, he responded, “Of course if you’re a Muslim, yeah.”

A woman wearing a pink hijab and traditional dress was asked if it’s OK for a father to make his young daughter marry a man of his choice.

“Yeah, yeah, he can, he can. He has the authority, you know, yeah, to do that.”

“How young do you think it is OK?” the interviewer asked.

“Ah, yeah, 15,” she answered.

The youngest person interviewed, a boy who appeared no more than 14 or 15, said it was easy to be a Muslim in his local school. He said he did not experience any persecution being a Muslim in Minneapolis.

He said he would prefer Shariah, however, because it was a much “tighter” society and, therefore, less prone to crime.

“Shariah law, it says that if you steal something, they cut off your hand,” the boy said, making a cutting motion with one hand against the other. “So, basically, they can leave their doors open. Nobody’s going to steal anything because Shariah is so tight. Usually, they don’t do anything. The smallest things usually have big consequences.

Blaspheming the ‘prophet’

Then the questions turned to Islamic blasphemy laws and the controversy with people depicting the Muslim “prophet” Muhammad in cartoons.

“How does that whole thing make you feel?” the interviewer asked.

“That really pisses me off, you know what I mean. I mean, they know it is a button to push,” said the young man in the baseball cap.

“It makes me angry,” said the man in the sunglasses. “Everyone gets like the big freedom. And then, they don’t see that, the freedom that they’re getting is causing a problem. And causing hatreds for other people.”

Would it be better if we made it illegal in America to make fun of the prophet Muhammad?

“Definitely yeah,” he said.

“So in a way, they kind of deserve whatever happens to them?” he is asked.

“Yeah, yeah, every action has a consequence,” the young man in the ball cap said.

“Do you think we should make a law that makes it illegal?”

“That would be better, yeah, that would be better,” said the man in the plaid dress shirt. “To stop, you know, aggression.”

‘I was so upset, so mad’

Then came another Somali man with a beard and a jacket. He was more animated than the others.

“I was so upset, and I was so mad. They insulted our religion. They insulted our prophet, and we couldn’t take it,” he said, shaking his fist and flailing his arms.

“And you shouldn’t be allowed to do that?” the interviewer asked.

“Oh my God, big time, yes!” he answered.

They were then asked if they understood the motivation of people who struck back violently against such depictions of the prophet.

“Yeah, I understand totally where they’re coming from, yeah,” said the young man in the ball cap.

‘Is it right to kill someone who insults the prophet?’

“Yes,” said the bearded man with the animated personality. “Because when you, every day you face frustration. And you know, every day you have, uh, you’re mad, or somebody says that, and you feel hate your soul. You could do anything you wanted. If you committed suicide, you don’t care, because your heart, your heart is telling you, ‘I don’t want to live no more,’ because you couldn’t take that much hate. Or you, you kill someone.”

The interviewer got even more pointed with a reference to Pamela Geller, who hosted the cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, earlier this month that was attacked by two Muslim men.

“Is it right to kill someone who insults Muhammad?”

“Yeah,” said the woman in the pink hijab. “Because she is just, she had her religion, I understand, but she shouldn’t pick on the prophet, you know.”

“So you understand why people would want to attack her?”

“Yeah,” the woman stated.

Would you rather live in America or Somalia?

The interviewer asked one final question: If they had a choice, would the Somalis rather live in America or back in Somalia?

“I’d rather to live in a Muslim country with my people,” the young man with the Brooklyn Nets cap said without hesitation. “I’m not Americanized. I just speak fluent (English) and I’m articulate, and I can articulate what I’m trying to say. That’s about it. But as far as that my culture and my preferences and everything, it’s still Somali, you know what I mean?”

“I would rather live in Somalia,” said the man in the sunglasses.

“For me, I think Somalia,” said the woman in the pink hijab.

‘We have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota’

U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger, at April press conference said Minnesota “has a terror recruitment problem” involving the local Somali population but didn’t say how the Somalis got to Minnesota.
U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger, at April press conference said Minnesota “has a terror recruitment problem” involving the local Somali population but didn’t say how the Somalis got to Minnesota.

The U.S. State Department has distributed about 100,000 Somali Muslims into cities across America since 1991 as part of its refugee resettlement program. In Minnesota, the resettlements, paid for with U.S. tax dollars, have been carried out by Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities and World Relief under contract with the federal government.

Andrew Luger, the U.S. attorney for Minnesota, admitted last month following the arrests of six Somali men from his state on charges that they repeatedly tried to book and board flights to join up with ISIS in Turkey and Syria, “We have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota.”

But in the eyes of some Somalis in Minneapolis, it’s clearly not terrorism to kill someone for criticizing their prophet. It’s just part of being Muslim.

They are taking serious the advice of Omar Ahmad, founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR. Speaking before a packed crowd at the Flamingo Palace on Peralta Boulevard in Fremont, California, in 1998, he urged American Muslims not to shirk their duty of sharing the Islamic faith with those who are “on the wrong side.”

WND reported in 2003 that the newspaper reporter who covered the CAIR event that night, Lisa Gardiner, paraphrased Ahmad’s message by writing, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant.”

Gardiner’s article, appearing in the Argus of Fremont, stands to this day as one of the most stark displays of Islamist intentions by CAIR, whose leaders typically choose their words more carefully when they know a reporter is present.

Muslim institutions, schools and economic power should be strengthened in America, Ahmad said. Those who stay in America should be “open to society without melting (into it),” keeping mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam, he said.

“If you choose to live here (in America) … you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam,” he told the Muslim crowd.

The Quran, the Muslim holy book, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth, he said.

Why are these people in this great country of ours? Why did both the Bush and Obama administrations decide it was a good idea to let so many of these people into our great nation? Especially after we all saw what they are capable of on 9/11/2001? I guess we just have to follow the money.

Please share if you agree we need to stop letting people come here from nations who hate us…

Muslims Start Praising Allah On Airplane, Didn’t Realize Who Flight Attendant Really Was Until It Was Too Late

TRUMP LOVES THIS!

Published

on

A Muslim couple from Ohio thought it was a splendid idea to chant about “Allah” while looking suspicious while they were texting or playing with their cell phone. That’s about as frightening as yelling “bomb” and twisting the back end of an alarm clock. Everyone knows that you don’t do anything on an airplane that gives people the creeps.

But that’s not what happened the day the Ohio couple was ejected out of escorted off of an airplane while trying to claim they were discriminated against. They didn’t realize the highly trained flight attendant could tell that people around them were feeling very skeptical of the couple’s awkward behavior that sent chills up the spine of just about every passenger who sat near them.

The Cincinnati, Ohio Muslim couple chanted, “Allah” while “hiding” their cellphones from view. This behavior obviously caught the highly trained flight attendant’s attention and made her very “uncomfortable.” For the sake of the safety of both passengers and crew, she urged the pilot to have them removed from the airplane.

You simply can’t act like this on a plane, train, or any mass travel automobile. You freak people out when you do this. Freaking people out gets you kicked off the airplane. That’s a no-brainer. In all honesty, people don’t care who or what you’re texting, but if you’re acting like you don’t want anyone else to see what’s on your screen, then you better understand that people are going to think the worst and be quite weary of your presence on the plane. That’s exactly what happened and the precise reason why this couple was removed. It wasn’t because they’re Muslim, it was because of their shady behavior.

The Delta flight attendant said every time she walked by the couple from Cincinnati, they were texting rather covertly on their phones. The Muslim man and woman also appeared to be sweating profusely according to the Delta staffer. The couple blamed their perspiration on a long boarding wait on the tarmac.

Sweating profusely while everyone else is not? That’s called your nerves are wrecking havoc on your perspiration system because you might be up to no good. Ever give a speech in grade school and were super nervous to do it? You may have sweat bullets. But when you might be up to no good on an airplane and you’re nervous about what might happen, then you might be sweating as well.  If no one else was sweating like this, then I’d have to call shenanigans on the couple whose covert texting and profuse sweating called some well-trained eyes to them.

Everyone else on the plane was forced to deal with the same wait. The other passengers were also subjected to the same “poor air circulation” on the plane, and they did not have beads of sweat running down their faces.

I guess not everyone else was texting covertly either? This doesn’t make sense. Weird texting behaviors, profuse sweat bullets dripping all over your faces, and chanting about “Allah” all paints a horrible picture to most people. We can’t exactly state that these folks are, or were, up to no good for sure, but the presentation of their behavior simply scared people and it’s nothing personal. People have a right to be scared of something when they’re on a huge mass transit vehicle such as an airplane and they see people acting like this. Maybe we’re trained to think the worst, but the behavior people witnessed was quite eerie to the average traveler.

“I was scared because it looked like some random guy was taking pictures of our passports on his personal phone,” said Nazia Ali, the Muslim woman from Cincinnati, after she and her husband, Faisal, were kicked off the airplane.

If you’re scared and think someone is taking photographs of your passports on their personal phone, then why don’t you ask them what they’re doing? If they were really violating your personal space and items, then speak up about it. However, texting like you don’t want anyone to see, sweating like you’re extremely nervous, and talking about “Allah” on an airplane simply won’t get you from point A to B. You’re going to have to step off the flight and think about what just happened and how to prevent it. You’ll have to understand this is not a thing against Muslims, but a thing where you’re scaring the Jesus out of folks and anyone doing this would be removed, regardless of their skin color, sex, or religion.

Anyone who acted like this on an airplane would be removed.

Nothing discriminatory about it, but you know they’ll try and say it was.

BREAKING: They Caved! Official New Muslim Holiday In Full Effect Everyone Is FORCED To Celebrate!

PREPARE TO BE ENRAGED!

Published

on

As Americans, we know that Islam is starting to be all around us. As conservative Americans, we can see it creeping into places that make it toxic and dangerous. However, most of us probably feel like we’ve got a little bit of time to deal with the problem. We see what’s happened in the Middle East and even in Europe and we don’t want that here, but this is America, we’ve got time. Sadly that’s just not the case.

The United States might still have laws that protect innocents from the violence of Islam, but if we’re not enforcing them, they may as well not exist. Our borders are supposed to keep the undesirable elements out, but if we don’t keep those closed, we could let anyone through, and liberals would welcome them with open arms and a debit card to your checking account. We think of that being a problem on the southern border, but what about the North?

According to the Gate Stone Institute, Canada might be the biggest of our neighbors to threaten our freedom from here on out. They’re becoming so very sympathetic to Muslims that Trudeau might even sign in a new holiday, focused not just on Islam, but on how poorly Muslims are apparently being treated in Canada. We might have thought it wouldn’t reach us in North America yet, but we were wrong:

“The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is being asked by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM, formerly known as CAIR CAN) to designate January 29 as a “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.” If he does, it is an indicator that the Islamists in Canada have succeeded in their program of political expansion and influence to the point of now being able publicly to manipulate the Prime Minister’s Office. In fact, in Canada, ‘Islamophobia’ comes in only fourth behind crimes against Blacks, Gays, and Jews. Hate crimes against Muslims have dropped, even as the overall number of hate crimes increase, according to the last Statistics Canada reporting.

CAIR CAN/NCCM was founded with the mission of supporting its American parent organization, CAIR USA, which in turn was formed to support Hamas. According to the Hamas Covenant, the group is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas is listed as [a] terrorist group by the United States and Canada. CAIR USA was also listed as a terrorist entity by the United Arab Emirates in 2014. They described the listing of these groups as including Muslim Brotherhood front groups, proxies, and fundraisers.

The current Executive Director of CAIR CAN/NCCM, Ihsaan Gardee, has tried to claim that CAIR USA and its Canadian chapter CAIR CAN/NCCM have no relationship. He has made this claim in media interviews to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and while testifying to the Parliament of Canada. This view is misleading. The US State Department has identified CAIR CAN/NCCM as the Canadian chapter of CAIR USA. CAIR USA has repeatedly claimed that CAIR CAN/NCCM is its ‘Canadian office.’ Most tellingly, CAIR CAN/NCCM made the following statement on its own website in 2003 referring to CAIR USA: ‘This Washington-based organization is CAIR CAN’s parent organization.’ That statement was published as part of its ‘A Journalist’s Guide to Islam.’

The Senate of Canada also heard from internationally known Muslim Brotherhood expert Dr. Lorenzo Vidino in May of 2015. In his testimony, Vidino stated that the Muslim Brotherhood has a series of eight to ten front organizations in Canada. Among those he noted were CAIR CAN/NCCM.

If the ‘Islamophobia Memorial Day’ is declared by the prime minister,[sic] it is a clear ‘indicator and warnin’ on how far an Islamist mentality has been developed within the corridors of government. It also will further confirm how deeply Prime Minister Trudeau has continued in his support the Islamist cause on every occasion since his election as a Member of Parliament in 2008.”

Essentially, this religion, and those who stand up for it, are doing exactly what we feared, and that they promised they wouldn’t do. They’re forcing attempting to force an entire nation to make exceptions just for them. The facts of the matter are thought that Canada doesn’t really even have a problem where they’re trying to address one. Again, let’s reiterate that the recent numbers confirm Canada’s supposed ‘Islamophobia’ comes in only fourth behind crimes against Blacks, Gays, and Jews. If you’re wondering, you can probably guess who’s perpetrating the crimes against the Jews. Hate crimes against Muslims actually have dropped even though the overall number of hate crimes increased, according to the last Statistics Canada reports.

There will no doubt be a time when school children will look back and shake their heads at us, wondering how we let ourselves be taken in by a group that has publically promised to kill us for the sake of their religion. The stupidity is astounding.
