Dozens of Muslims leave company that limits prayer to scheduled breaks

It’s kind of hard to halt a production line several times a day to accommodate a prayer break. The manufacturing process is sensitive yet apparently the Muslims who work/worked there are more sensitive.

Dozens of Muslim employees at a Wisconsin manufacturer say they are now out of a job after the company changed its prayer-on-the-job policy.
Fox News reports that Brillion-based Ariens Company changed their policy last Thursday. The policy originally allowed Muslim employees to leave the production line twice a shift to pray two of their five daily required prayers. Workers would pray five minutes at a time, assigning their duties to colleagues while they prayed.
But Ariens is now asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks. A company representative told WBAY-TV the “manufacturing environment does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production.”
The company’s new policy change affects 53 workers. Ten of those employees have indicated they wish to stay in their current positions under the new policy, the company said. Ariens said the company “put a considerable amount of effort into finding a solution that allows for employees of Muslim faith to pray during work hours,” including meeting with members of the company’s Somali employee group and consulting with local Muslim faith representatives.
The company said in a statement, “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. We respect their faith, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not.”
Of course, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wasn’t pleased with any of this. They called on Ariens to allow Muslim workers to pray at work using the previous policy until the dispute is resolved. “These types of accommodation disputes can be resolved in a spirit of respect for constitutionally-protected religious rights and for the legitimate needs of both employees and employers,” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said in a news release.

MARCH 20, 2015
frontpagemag.com
Making some parents furious, a Pine Bush, New York high school courted controversy by teaching kids to recite our national Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic even changing “one nation under god” to “one nation under Allah.” The morning’s regularly scheduled announcements included the Arabic reading of the pledge. According to students, the announcement was greeted by catcalls and angry denunciations in classrooms throughout the school by students who felt the reading was inappropriate…

Watch Obama Declare that America Was Founded on Islam

OBAMA ASSHOLE
Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.” – Barack Hussein Obama

Here’s what Obama legitimately believes:

“Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding” – BHO February 2015, Washington

That’s an exact quote from what the president told White House conference on “countering violent extremism”. If you aren’t shocked by this, then you are well aware of the many idiotic things he’s touted regarding Islam in the past. source

“I also know that Islam has been a part of America’s story.”– BHO June 2009, Egypt

“Islam has always been a part of America” BHO 2010 start of Ramadan

Here is Obama saying that Islam, and not Judeo-Christian values and ideals, are the foundation of America:

“Eid (Muslim Holiday) reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslims Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy” BHO 2014 Marking Eid

Then it got worse:

Since 2009, NOW THE END BEGINS has brought you story after story in detailed accounts of exactly how Obama feels about Islam, and how he views Christianity and the Bible. So today, in light of recent events in Washington, we feel it important that you know exactly where your president stands in regards to his faith and his god.

Click here to read 20 quotes he has made about Islam, and 20 quotes he has made about Christianity. Nothing edited or mashed up, just exactly in the context he originally spoke them in with fully-sourced links so you can see where they come from.

If after reading this, you still think he is not a Muslim, then there is something organically wrong with your ability to reason and understand simple words written on the level of 6th grade English. You may remain ignorant, but it will be willingly so.

Saudi Arabian restaurants ban single women from entering because of their 'mentally unstable' behaviour

saudi arabia
DailyMail: Restaurants in Saudi Arabia have banned single women from entering because of their ‘mentally unstable’ behaviour such as using flirting, smoking and using mobile phones.
Several restaurants have put up signs that say ‘women are not allowed’ in another blow for women’s rights in the conservative Muslim kingdom.
There is no law banning women from travelling alone in Saudi Arabia but deeply-held religious beliefs dictate that they should be accompanied by a male family member when out in public.
According to The Week, one restaurant owner said: ‘We put up these signs because we have seen numerous incidents of flirting taking place inside the restaurant. We’ll only remove these signs when we make sure such incidents never happen again on our premises because such type of behaviour negatively impacts our business.’
Bloggers in the Middle Eastern state also described women who smoke and use mobile phones as ‘mentally unstable’. One wrote: ‘The best thing is to keep women away from restaurants unless they have a male custodian. That way the restaurant is not shut down because of the misbehaviour of an adolescent or mentally unstable woman.’
The blogger added that one woman crossed the line when she came in alone and ‘focused on her mobile’.
Another online post said some women visiting restaurants had no respect. A man called Talal said: ‘My brother has a restaurant and he says that even though there is a section for families, there are often instances of embarrassment.
‘Several women would come in and would speak loudly without any respect for public behaviour. He says that it is difficult for him to get them to lower their voices.’
Saudi Arabia has one of the worst record’s for women’s rights in the world. Women will be allowed to vote and run for office in local elections for the first time next year but are still not allowed to drive.
There are no laws on the minimum age it is legal to marry at, with father’s giving their daughters a way when they are just nine years old in some cases.
Women can ride bicycles, but only in ‘recreational areas’ if they are wearing full Islamic body coverings and are accompanied by a male guardian.
Khalid Al Fakhri, the head of Saudi Arabia’s National Society for Human Rights, said: ‘These signs are against the law and reflect the personal opinions of the restaurant owners.’

Who Is Hillary Clinton? by Dick Morris

image
AN ANALYSIS WORTH READING: (and to think about when it is election time….)
by Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill Clinton, January, 2014
If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying … he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary’s background. Beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections;
Bill says: “In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.”
The facts are: Hillary’s main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committed to trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.
Bill says: “Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children’s rights project for poor kids.”
The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.
Bill says:”Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.”
The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar.  She had no job offers in Arkansas , none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.
Bill says: “President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman.”
The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter’s choice to be chairman.
Bill says: “She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.”
The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.
Bill says: “Hillary didn’t succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.”
The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.
Bill says: “Hillary was the face of America all over the world.”
The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House.   Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.
Bill says: “Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children’s and women’s issues.”
The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation.
One set up a national park in Puerto Rico . A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation. Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.
Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton.
She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country (that’s you and me!) when it comes to the war on terror.
1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.
2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA .
3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.
4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells and supporters in the USA
5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.
One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror.
But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us.
Bottom line:
She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

Staff at Muslim primary school 'caught on camera describing how clapping hands is Satanic and that gay people should be stoned to death'

school
Daily Mail: Teachers at a Muslim faith primary have allegedly referred to clapping hand as “Satanic” – and had discussions about whether music in school might be un-Islamic.
Footage was obtained for a Channel 4 documentary at The Olive School – a Muslim faith primary for 600 pupils in Blackburn, run by the Tauheedul Islam Faith, Education and Community Trust.
It is also claimed that the footage shows staff talking about how ties could be turned into snakes and that gay people should be stoned to death. The Trust has labeled the discussions as “staff room gossip”.
Channel 4 did not say what footage from the school would be aired. Officials at the Trust contacted the Department of Education after learning of the allegations, reported the Blackburn Citizen.
The Trust invited inspectors to visit the school, and the DfE ordered an emergency “no notice” Ofsted inspection last week. The Trust later insisted that this inspection went “very well”.
The Trust also confirmed that Dispatches had filmed undercover at the school and promised to act if anything on the film “is shown to undermine our progressive vision, ethos and approach”.
A Tauheedul governor said: “The Trust’s schools provide a first class education for young people in modern-day Britain. We need to look at what these schools have achieved for their pupils.”
Blackburn MP Jack Straw said: “I reserve final judgment until I see the programme. From what I know the allegations are groundless.”
He told the Blackburn Citizen: “I am sure Channel Four has recordings of what has been said. This appears to be what individuals have expressed in the course of conversations in the staffroom.”
Meanwhile, a Muslim father has revealed he warned the Prime Minister’s office of worrying Islamist practices at one of the scandal-hit “Trojan Horse” schools – but got no reply.
The Mail on Sunday has learned that David Cameron’s office received an email in February from Mohammed Zabar, whose ten-year-old daughter attends Oldknow Academy.
Oldknow is one of the schools investigated in connection with an alleged fundamentalist plot to take over Birmingham Schools. Mr. Zabar warned the government that he believed the school over-emphasised Islamic teaching at the expense of other faiths. He said the school closed for a Muslim festival but had no Christmas celebrations.
Downing Street did not respond to Mr. Zabar’s email. Instead he was advised by the Education Funding Agency to “contact Oldknow Academy directly and make a complaint”. Mr. Zabar had already met the school principal, whom he says did not deal with his concerns.
News of the Trojan Horse plot broke in March and Mr. Cameron spoke about it for the first time in April after claims that non-Muslim members of staff were being isolated, male and female pupils were segregated and assemblies were used to promote the teachings of Al Qaeda.
The Prime Minister promised to take “swift action” to ensure schools could not be used to spread the ideology of terrorists, and an investigation into schools in Birmingham started.
One report later uncovered allegations that pupils as young as six at Oldknow were taught to treat Western women as “white prostitutes”.  And there were claims that extremists pushed out the head teacher because she opposed the “Islamisation” of the school. Mr. Zabar believes the government should have acted on his guidance much earlier.
He said: “I was angry and frustrated that my concerns had been so easily dismissed. When the Trojan Horse scandal broke I wrote to them again saying perhaps they might want to reassess my information in light of recent evidence. I never had a reply to that one. It was distressing and disappointing to have my concerns ignored.”
Peter Clarke, former national head of counter-terrorism at the Metropolitan Police, was appointed in April to investigate the Trojan Horse plot to hijack the schools by Islamic extremists.
His report is due to be handed in to the government imminently. Last night shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt accused Mr. Cameron of “shocking complacency”. He said: “The government was warned about the problems in Birmingham’s schools as long ago as 2010. Now it is revealed that warnings by parents were being fobbed off by No 10.”
A DfE spokesman said: “We were already investigating Oldknow by the time this letter (Mr. Zabar’s) was sent.

Obama administration refuses to tell Congress with whom U.S. is at war

A year ago on May 23, Obama declared in a speech to National Defense University that he intends “to engage Congress” about the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) that resulted from 9-11, “to determine how we can continue to fight terrorism without keeping America on a perpetual wartime footing.”

That’s because, the POS said, “The Afghan war is coming to an end. Core al Qaeda is a shell of its former self. Groups like AQAP must be dealt with, but in the years to come, not every collection of thugs that labels themselves al Qaeda will pose a credible threat to the United States.” To avoid being “drawn into more wars we don’t need to fight, or continue to grant Presidents unbound powers,” Obama said “I look forward to engaging Congress and the American people in efforts to refine, and ultimately repeal, the AUMF’s mandate.”

A year later, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee convened a hearing to do just that — to review the AUMF and determine whether it should be repealed. The committee’s member senators took seriously their charge, but not the two lawyers sent to represent the White House. To get a simple “yes” or “no” answer from those two was like pulling teeth.

In this post, you’ll read for yourselves just how pointless the hearing was, how empty Obama’s grand words were in that National Defense University speech, and how meaningless are this man’s promises.

29 Dead In China. Knife Wielding Terrorist Attack.

I hate to make political hay from such a tragedy, but if only these knives had been registered… Or why does anyone need a knife this big. Oh and this is probably the work of those friendly folk who bring you Islam. Just saying…


29 die in rail station attack China calls terrorism; Uighurs blamed.

BEIJING — A knife-wielding gang carried out an attack Saturday evening at a rail station in the south China city of Kunming, killing at least 29 and injuring more than 100, Chinese state media reported Sunday.

It was one of the deadliest attacks in China in years, and Chinese President Xi Jinping issued an unusual directive, distributed by the state news agency Xinhua, calling for authorities to “severely punish” what he called “violent terrorists.” Xinhua reported that four of the attackers had been killed, but it provided no information on when they died.

( I’m thinking China don’t play well with terrorists like we do.)

“Resolutely crack down on those who have been swollen with arrogance,” Xi’s directive said, according to Xinhua. “Understand the serious and complex nature of combating terrorism. Go all out to maintain social stability.”

Photos circulating on social media suggested that at least some of the victims were people lined up to purchase tickets. Other photos showed blood-stained bodies and people fleeing in terror.

Chinese state media, citing city officials, blamed the 9 p.m. attack on militants from Xinjiang, a region in West China that is thousands of miles from Kunming. “Evidence at the crime scene showed that the Kunming railway station terrorist attack was carried out by Xinjiang separatist forces,” Xinhua said, but it provided no details of the evidence.

Xinjiang is populated by Uighurs, Turkic Muslims who have long resented Beijing’s control of the area. In recent years, Uighur militants have carried out suicidal attacks on police stations in the region, often using knives and sometimes crude explosives. In October last year, a family of three Uighurs drove a sports utility vehicle onto a sidewalk in Tiananmen Square, killing two tourists and injuring 40, before setting the car on fire and killing themselves.

Kunming, in Yunnan Province, is 1,300 miles southwest of Beijing and about 2,333 driving miles southeast of Xinjiang’s capital, Urumqi. Because of the distances involved, and sketchy details provided by authorities and state media, some analysts Sunday urged caution in immediately concluding that Uighur militants were responsible.

Nevertheless, Saturday’s attack was likely to trigger a heavy handed response by Chinese authorities in Xinjiang, a region already under tight police control and restricted press access. Just last week, Beijing authorities arrested a leading Uighur scholar Ilham Tohti, charging him with promoting “separatism.” Tohti’s and his supporters dispute the charges, saying he is being silenced for his outspoken criticism of China’s human rights record in Xinjiang.

On Chinese social media on Sunday, most commentators expressed sympathy with the victims and urged government action against the terrorists.

“Some of these (victims) are poor people who do odd jobs and are possibly the breadwinners of their families,” wrote Anliuyi of Kunming. “They have children and parents, and just because they ran into this gang, they are dead and their families are broken.”

A man named Yang Haifei, who was wounded in the chest and back, told Xinhua he had been trying to buy a train ticket when the assailants carried out their attack. “I saw a person come straight at me with a long knife and I ran away with everyone,” he said. Others, he said, “simply fell on the ground.”

‘Peaceful’ Brotherhood Protesters Torching Coptic Christian Churches

But First…

Obama On Egypt: ‘We Don’t Take Sides’

“Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard Thursday, the president strongly condemned security forces going after supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.”
( That would be the peaceful ones Below )

https://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/08/15/obama-we-dont-take-sides/

OK, Now for those peaceful protesters Butthead is so concerned about.

By  Andrew C. McCarthy

In the familiar pattern, the Western media are focused on the military raids against Islamic supremacists in Egypt but ignoring the latter’s use of violence and of women and children as human shields. After all, the “protesters” say they are “peaceful.”
When not similarly ignored, Islamic supremacist aggression against Egypt’s Christians — which was a prominent feature of Muslim Brotherhood governance — is disingenuously reported. Take this AFP report of the fact that the Brotherhood and its allies are torching Coptic churches. The AFP endeavors to exculpate the Islamic supremacists by editorializing, in the report, that these were “reprisal” attacks. But the Brotherhood was not ousted by the minority Copts. To be sure, the Copts far prefer to take their chances with a largely secular, technocratic government backed by the armed forces than the rampant persecution they endured while the Brotherhood was running the show. But it is the army, not the Copts, who ejected Morsi. AFP tries to obscure this by recounting that “the Coptic church backed Morsi’s removal, with Patriarch [i.e., Pope] Tawadros II appearing alongside army chief General Fattah al-Sisi as he announced the military coup.” As I observed in writing about the coup in the August 5 edition of National Review, however, Pope Tawadros was hardly alone — General Sisi also gathered by his side significant Islamic supremacist leaders: Grand Mufti Ahmed al-Tayeb of al-Azhar University and leaders of the Salafist al-Nour party (in addition to prominent secularists).
The Brotherhood is not “retaliating” against Christians. Islamic supremacists are persecuting Christians . . . which is what they do in Muslim-majority countries.
