Dept. of Justice Sues Essex County to Protect Islam!

Just days ago I posted an article entitled "Justice Dept. Issues Statement to Help Advance Islam in America". Well the DOJ did not waste anytime and they have filed their first pro-Islamic lawsuit since then. It is now clear that our government supports one religion and that religion is Islam!

Hat tip to Creeping Sharia.

Suit claims NJ woman fired for wearing Muslim garb

NEWARK, N.J. - The U.S. Justice Department has sued Essex County over its firing of a corrections officer for wearing religious headwear.

The suit was filed in federal court in Newark on Monday on behalf of Yvette Beshier.

It claims Beshier was first suspended and then fired by the county for wearing a khimar, or Muslim head scarf.

The suit seeks monetary damages and also to require Essex County to adopt a policy that accommodates the religious observances and practices of employees.

Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin or religion.

A county spokesman declined to comment on the lawsuit.
