CAIR is claiming victory in yet another encroachment on our freedoms in the advancement of the implementation of sharia law.
In a craven capitulation to Islamic supremacism, Wal-Mart will accommodate Muslim prayer in the workplace. It is not for us to bend to the will of Islam.
Mind you, it is not necessary for a Muslim to prayer at a certain time. These actions are merely devices in which to impose Islam on non-believers. Prayer is not required on a strict schedule and Muslim prayers are commonly “made up” after work or school. This is true even in Muslim countries, i.e., Iran.
[...] Islamic authorities agree that foot baths are not required to fulfill their washing rituals prior to prayer and that provisions have been clearly defined. According to Islamic Law, you have a symbolic washing alternative or you can wash in one location and pray at another and this one washing can last you through an entire days prayers. (more here)
Muslim footbaths in airports and universities, Muslim cab drivers who refuse to take passengers with dogs or alcohol, prayer times in public schools, prayer times in the work place, colleges forced to have separate swimming times for Islamic men and women so not to offend Muslims............ this is how you lose your country this is all part of the "the project" - Islamic invasion of America: The 20 Point Plan
These "initiatives "are to impose their will upon us, not to honor ironclad religious responsibilities.
A major retail chain has rehired a fired Muslim employee in the Twin Cities and is now accommodating his right to pray in the workplace, an Islamic civil rights organization in Minnesota is reporting.
The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced Monday that Walmart agreed to the accommodation after CAIR-MN intervened on behalf of employee Abdi Abdi, who was fired from his job in February as a stocker and loader at the Woodbury store.
CAIR-MN says that Abdi, a four-year employee with Walmart, was let go for violating a new supervisor's ban on prayer during work breaks. A previous supervisor had allowed him to perform his daily prayers, the organization said.
Abdi was rehired last month at a Walmart in St. Paul and is now allowed to pray during breaks, following negotiations between CAIR-MN and local and national representatives of Walmart, the St. Paul-based rights group said.
"We appreciate Walmart's handling of this case and its willingness to accommodate the religious practices of employees," CAIR-MN Civil Rights Coordinator Zahra Aljabri said.
Abdi was rehired at the Walmart in the Midway area of St. Paul because it is closer to his home, his wife works there and managers at that store are "more familiar with the prayer schedule," Aljabri said. "At least a dozen" Muslims work at the Midway Walmart, she said.
As part of the agreement, Walmart has agreed to send about 10 of their employees for diversity training next month that CAIR-MN is conducting, Aljabri said.
