In the continuing islamization of the Department of Justice, Obama's DoJ filed a lawsuit against a Chicago-area school district for not allowing a Muslim teacher to take time off to make a religious pilgrimage to Mecca, thereby abandoning her students for a month. The school needed her and said no. She was the only math lab teacher, a new hire on probation. Why take a job you can't do? Why take a job that you plan on leaving for a month? Islamic supremacism.
The DoJ sued the school, forcing the district to pay $75,000 in lost back pay, compensatory damages and attorneys’ fees. Your taxpayer dollars at work to sue, to lose, to pay 75K in jizya.
Safoorah Khan had taught middle school math for only nine months in this tiny Chicago suburb when she made an unusual request. She wanted three weeks off for a pilgrimage to Mecca. The school district, faced with losing its only math lab instructor during the critical end-of-semester marking period, said no. Khan, a devout Muslim, resigned and made the trip anyway.
Obama's Department of Sharia filed an unusual lawsuit against the school system in December 2010, not to ensure the kids get a good education, mind you, but more importantly, to ensure that the Muslims get special rights and extraordinary accommodation.
The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday announced that it settled Safoorah Khan’s religious discrimination lawsuit against the Berkeley School District, forcing the district to pay $75,000 in lost back pay, compensatory damages and attorneys’ fees.
This is the same DOJ's Holder who spoke at the Muslim Advocates dinner a few months back and reassured Muslims of "DOJ's anti-bias focus."
This is the same DoJ that scuttled the prosecutions against Muslim Brotherhood-tied groups, i.e. CAIR et al.
This is the same DOJ that is creating Muslim majority legislative districts by converting a religious class into a racial one.
This is the same DOJ's Holder who sued a New Jersey county demanding that a correction facility accommodate a Muslim employee's khimar, a religious head covering.
The Department of Justice sponsored a booth at the Muslim Brotherhood front ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) convention underwritten by, among others, the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas-linked CAIR.
Further, Obama's Department of Justice dropped the "charges" against the Muslims who blew up the USS Cole.
The Dept. of Jihad is forcing mosques on communities and shaking down anyone who doesn’t submit to sharia law. via Woman wins right to Mecca trip.
A Muslim woman has won her fight against a west suburban school district after being denied unpaid leave to go on a religious pilgrimage to Mecca.
The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday announced it settled Safoorah Khan’s religious discrimination lawsuit against the Berkeley School District, forcing the district to pay $75,000 in lost back pay, compensatory damages and attorneys’ fees.
The district also will have to develop a policy accommodating religions consistent with the Civil Rights Acts to ensure something similar will not happen again.
Khan, a teacher at MacArthur Middle School, requested an unpaid leave of absence in December 2008 to perform hajj — a pilgrimage required by Islam — but was told she had to choose between her job and her religious beliefs. She resigned.
“I’m glad that we settled and I hope this does set a precedent,” Khan said. “I hope they realize that hajj means a lot to Muslims and there will be more and more people taking the trip. I hope this helps people and their employers to accommodate Muslims and their requests.”
The very definition of stealth jihad and creeping sharia. It’s all about accommodating Muslims. Imperialists.
According to the settlement, the district must also provide mandatory training on religious accommodations to all board of education members and school supervisors.
Khan, now 30, says she went to Mecca, Saudi Arabia the year she resigned.
“It’s required once in our lifetime at the earliest opportunity you can get,” she said.
The solution is not to hire people who will likely leave their students flat to go to a place where most of their students would be discriminated against.
