CAIR Sues Bank for Refusing Service


CAIR, the Islamic organization that was recently hit with racketeering charges by the US Department of Justice has turned around in an act of self arrogance and asked the Justice Dept. to investigate a California bank for allegedly discriminating against an Islamic woman. CAIR has offered the bank the “An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices”. How kind of them.


CAIR: Calif. Muslim Denied Service at Bank over Hijab
DOJ asked to investigate possible civil rights violations by bank officials
WASHINGTON, D.C., 2/2/2009) - A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today called on the U.S. Department of Justice to determine whether a California bank violated a Muslim woman’s civil rights when it denied her service because she was wearing a religiously-mandated head scarf, or hijab.

According to the woman, she was denied service Saturday at a Navy Federal Credit Union in San Diego, Calif., despite telling bank officials that she wears her head scarf for religious reasons.

In a statement, the bank said:

“‘In the interest of Security and Safety for our members and employees - hats, hoods and sunglasses must be removed when entering the branch office.’ Special consideration for cultural and religious garments is under the discretion of the branch management. Navy Federal is making inquiries into the recent incident.”

It's a lie anyway. The hijab is NOT mandated by islam, it's mandated by muz wankers that think it's mandated by islam. Idiots are ignorant of their own screwed up religion.

You are correct Tonto... thank you.

They have taken a page out of the GLBT guide book on how to use the ACLU and stage a so called discrimination or hate crime. This was a planned set-up by them.

Hi

My question is for Tonto,

How do you know it's not mandated?


Thank you,

Tonto is correct. The hijab itself is not mandated by Islam. Covering your breasts is covered in 24:31. Also, the phrase contains women must not show off their beauty to anyone else but their husbands and other family members. This verse arises from Mohammad's concern that the men coming to his Mosque and home were looking at his wives.
This is purely a property ownership type of verse. Exactly what constitutes beauty has been hotly debated and now their face is also considered their beauty by most of Islam. It is supposed to be a choice, but considering that they start putting girls it it at young ages, how exactly is that a choice. When girls are harrassed by family, and even honor murdered for not wearing it, how is that not terrorism and abuse to the core!
The other part of women's modesty is that "they must not stamp their feet to show off their hidden ornaments. They must have worn shorter dresses back then, cause I just can't see how just stamping your feet would show off your vagina or buttocks? Now if you wore a short tunic/dress like Paris Hilton....it would be easy as she has shown us her vagina many times.
So all that is actually required is for you to wear a shirt that covers your breasts and wear pants or a dress that is long enough to cover your vagina and buttocks if you so choose to stamp your feet.

Dear Snello, I read things....a lot. It's called "know the enemy".

Tonto is correct - the hijab is not required of followers -no where does it say that in the Koran or the like. However, the followers all yearn to be like Mohammad who made his wife wear a veil -- they have made it a tradition and the women somehow think that it is a symbol of their honor and duty to Allah.

we choose to cover and you guys choose to expose too much skin.

Where is the problem? deal with it.

Ironicly. ;)
