Hoop, maybe if you answered such questions, this sort of thing wouldn’t happen
A CAIR press release (thanks to Twostellas):
PHOENIX, May 27 /U.S. Newswire/ — The Arizona office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-AZ) today announced that a Muslim ex-employee of Intel Corporation has filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against the California-based computer chip giant.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, alleges that the Muslim employee faced national origin and religious harassment, discrimination and retaliation following the 9/11 terror attacks.
According to papers filed with the court: “Since September 11, 2001, (the plaintiff’s) supervisor began making derogatory remarks…which included, but not limited to, ‘Why (do) your people want to kill Americans?’ and ‘Why do the Islamic groups from the Middle East want to destroy the Western Civilization?'”
Now wait a minute. Would CAIR now have us believe that there are no Muslims who want to kill Americans since 9/11? Would they have us believe that there are no Islamic groups from the Middle East that want to destroy Western Civilization? And are we now to accept that even to ask such questions constitutes discrimination and harassment?
This is legal strong-arming of a spectacular sort, and if successful, its effect will only make Americans less willing to investigate the causes and goals of Islamic terrorism. Now why would CAIR want to do that?
In 2002, the plaintiff filed an internal complaint of discrimination. Despite that complaint, the employee claims that harassment intensified, forcing him out of his job. The lawsuit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
“Employees of all faiths should be offered a workplace environment free of racial or religious discrimination and harassment,” said CAIR-AZ Executive Director Deedra Abboud.
