Muslim Accommodations, Eurabia Division Update: this woman insists on wearing a burqa, despite the fact that it makes employers not want to hire her. And instead of telling her to get out of the burqa and adapt to European society rather than requiring European society to adapt to her, a Dutch court is now ordering that she be given welfare payments.
“Dutch council to pay blocked welfare to Muslim woman,” from Middle East Times, with thanks to WriterMom:
THE HAGUE, The Netherlands — A local council in the Netherlands has been censured for cutting welfare payments to a Muslim woman who could not find work due to her preference for the burqa, an Islamic garment that covers the eyes.
A court in Amsterdam ordered the Diemen district authorities to pay more than a year’s worth of blocked welfare payments as well as the woman’s legal fees.
A judge said that the authorities’ decision to stop payments in April last year was “very heavy” and criticized them for failing to take Islamic customs into account….
Three employers had refused to hire the woman due to her preference for the garment. The woman had rejected a fourth job as a telephone marketer because it involved a lottery business, saying that gambling was forbidden under Islam.
