I wonder if this will put the company, American Patriot, out of business. That’s the point, isn’t it? Muslim Brotherhood groups demand that non-Muslims adhere to the sharia, or they’ll destroy you. And they use American law to impose Islamic law. In this case, the company, American Patriot, failed to mount a defense. Perhaps they couldn’t afford to fight litigation jihad.
Yesterday I covered another lawusit by the Muslim Brotherhood hate group Hamas-CAIR against DHL to impose Muslim prayer times on the workplace in Kentucky. It is not necessary for a Muslim to pray at a certain time if necessity makes it impossible to do so. These actions are merely devices in which to impose Islam on non-believers. Prayer is not absolutely required a strict schedule, and Muslim prayers are commonly “made up” after work or school. This is true even in Muslim countries such as Iran. So why sue American companies to impose Muslim prayer on the secular workplace? To impose Islam on the public square.
The idea is to establish and enforce the principle that wherever Islamic law and American customs, practices, business policies, and laws conflict, the American side would have to give way.

The J. B. Swift meat packing plant in Greeley, Colorado, fired Muslim workers who turned violent and walked off their jobs when denied special break periods to end the Ramadan fast at the appointed time. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, however, sided with the Muslim workers and forced Swift to reinstate them. Ultimately, Swift added footbaths and bidets to its plant for the Muslim workers.
This is a systematic campaign against American business.
A group of Muslims in Colorado sued Wal-Mart, claiming that they were fired in order to provide jobs for local non-Muslims, and that they had been denied prayer breaks while on the job.
Hertz, Heinz, Disney et al have all been victimized by Islamic supremacist sharia demands.
The mosqueing of the workplace is meticulously documented in my book Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.
Man allegedly fired over beard awarded $66,000 in back pay By Lornet Turnbull, Seattle Times, October 9, 2013 (thanks to Mark)A SeaTac man who wears a closely cropped beard in observance of his Muslim faith has been awarded back pay and other costs after alleging that he was fired for refusing to shave his beard.
A federal judge has awarded back pay and other costs to a Muslim man who said he was fired from his security-guard job two years ago for refusing to shave his close-cropped beard.
Abdulkadir Omar, 23, who worked for American Patriot Security in 2009 and 2010, was awarded over $66,000 in back wages, attorney fees and court costs. U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik ordered a default judgment against American Patriot on Sept. 27 after the company declined to mount a defense.
Across the country and here in Washington, a number of lawsuits have been brought against employers by workers with religious-discrimination claims — from those who want to pray during their work shifts to men and women wearing head coverings.
“There’s a religious conflict in some workplaces where employers make broad policies they then seek to implement, even if they prevent employees from being able to practice their religion,” said attorney Hardeep Rekhi, who represented Omar in the case.
American Patriot Security, based in Sacramento, Calif., and with operations in several states, including Washington, was initially represented by an attorney, who later withdrew from the case.
American Patriot officials did not return calls Tuesday seeking comment.
Omar, who lives in SeaTac, said no one told him when he took the minimum-wage job in 2009 that he would have to shave his beard, which he keeps closely trimmed.
In court papers, he said he’d been working for six months at a complex in Kent where American Patriot provided security when he was asked by the company’s regional manager to shave his closely cropped beard in compliance with the company’s grooming policy. Omar at the time said he explained to Smith that his strongly held religious beliefs required him as a Muslim man to wear a beard.
When he met with Smith in April 2010 to discuss wages he was owed, Omar again invoked his religious beliefs when Smith told him he needed to shave.
Omar then contacted the advocacy group, the Washington state chapter of the Counsel on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which wrote to his employer, further explaining the religious rules for Muslim men. According to court documents, the company then suspended Omar without pay.
He first filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which determined there was reasonable cause to believe the company had violated his civil rights.
