Islam surely has a friend in our government. While our rulers’ plans to use our money to help build a massive shrine to Islamic terrorism at Ground Zero get most of the attention, countless other stories play out in the shadows — like this one:
Federal officials say a JBS Swift & Co. meatpacking plant should give Muslim employees prayer time and not retaliate against workers who ask to pray. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit Monday on behalf of more than 80 Somali Muslims. …
Hundreds of Muslim workers walked off the job at the Grand Island, Neb., plant during Ramadan in 2008, saying they needed time to pray at sunset and break a day-long fast. Management adjusted the work schedule the next day. Non-Muslims protested and the accommodations ended.
The accommodations ended for now, that is. Eight-six Muslims were fired for walking off the job, but they’ll be back, as will their special privileges. We infidels will just have to work a little harder to pick up the slack.
Try to imagine Christians refusing to work because they’re too busy praying, getting fired for walking out, then having the full force of the federal government come crashing down on the employers on their behalf.
