Minneapolis helps Muslim businesses follow sharia law. And Allah knows, ‘starving’ Somali Muslims there need to be able to get food more hours of the day.
MN Daily The amendment, drafted by Ward 12 City Councilman Andrew Johnson, would allow businesses outside of downtown to apply to stay open later than 10 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends, for Muslims during what they call the “holy month of Ramadan.”
Cedar-Riverside, a neighborhood filled with barbarically-slaughtered animals in halal markets and East African restaurants, would be particularly affected by the change, Johnson said. The amendment would also allow grocery stores in the area to stay open later.
“It’s harder for families to pick up a few things at a store during Ramadan,” said Ward 6 City Councilman Abdi Warsame. Muslim business owners in the neighborhood say they hope the City Council will approve the amendment on Dec. 5. “This will mean more business from Muslim people who want to come in later,” said Ali Jama, manager of West Bank Grocery, adding that “business is dead” some days during the month of Ramadan.
Hussein Ahmed owns a sharia money services consulting business on Cedar Avenue, a location surrounded by groceries and restaurants. He said if they stayed open later, it would draw more business to him indirectly. “As a business owner, them being open during Ramadan would be a huge benefit to us,” Ahmed said.

The amendment only applies to businesses outside of downtown without a liquor license. The amendment allows businesses to apply to extend their hours 35 days a year. The temporary closing time would be decided on a case-by-case basis. Warsame said the 35 days should be enough to allow for Ramadan and a few extra occasions.
Kahin said the ordinance would help the whole Muslim community.
Passaic County Prosecutors say 21-year-old Muslim woman, Linda Hardan, of Prospect Park, also is charged with child endangerment and criminal sexual contact. Hardan is accused of assaulting a 16-year-old student from Manchester Regional High School, where she worked as a substitute teacher.
NY Daily News Linda Hardan, of Prospect Park, picked the Manchester Regional High School student up and drove the boy to Wayne on Thursday to have sex, Passaic County Prosecutor Gyselle Da Silva alleged to the North Jersey Record.
The 21-year-old teacher, who’s also a former student at Manchester Regional, was arrested Friday after the assault had been reported to police, the Record reported. She is jailed at Passaic County Jail on sexual assault charges with a $250,000 bond.
MUSLIM man is in jail accused of attacking another man over religion differences. “We were watching the news,” said the victim. “The Muslim said he felt like more Muslims need to step up to the plate and do certain things like beheading people.”
KOCO (h/t Jeanne) Upon arrival, police officers learned the victim, Jerome Bullockand and 54-year-old Jimmy Stepney had been arguing about the Bible vs the Quran. According to the arrest affidavit, Stepney is a Muslim and the Bullock is a Christian. The report went on to say Stepney had been making comments about beheading people. (As a Muslim actually did to a Christian woman at work in Oklahoma just a few weeks ago)
Because of the statement, Bullock says he asked Stepney, who’d been staying with the family, to leave. Stepney complied but eventually came back and started arguing with Bullock. According to the arrest affidavit, the pair began fighting in the yard after Stepney allegedly punched the victim. Witnesses told officers that Stepney had a knife and was attempting to stab the victim. That’s when Bullock’s mother, Diane Range, came out with a baseball bat and started swinging at Stepney.
“He was trying to kill my son,” said Range. Bullock suffered minor cuts from the fight and Stepney was able to walk away. “I was just trying to pay it forward by helping him out,” said Bullock. “Instead I got a lot of cuts and hurt feelings.” Stepney is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery.
Black graffiti of the Star of David was found on the front door of a mosque in Live Oak and Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputies are investigating it as a hate crime. Spray paint of the star, which is a Jewish symbol, and above it the number “26” were written on a white front door of the Islamic Center of Santa Cruz.
Any BNI readers know what the ’26’ represents?
Santa Cruz Sentinel “Night vision” surveillance images show what appears to be a woman in a hooded sweatshirt spraying paint. The letters “SC” appeared on the left torso of her sweatshirt (Gee, that must stand for Santa Cruz). Deputies said they were unsure of her height, weight and other features. “She had something covering the bottom half of her face.” (I bet she did – a niqab?)
Zahra Billoo, the CAIR’s executive director, said she said she had no idea what the number signifies, but speculated that the Star of David might be a reference to the ongoing violence in Israel and Gaza. Billoo said she was “surprised” and “horrified” by the act.
“So often, Islamophobia is something that many Muslims think of as happening in other places,” Billoo said. “It’s not as common to have these things happen in California and especially not in the Bay Area.” (That’s for sure, California is a breeding ground for leftist apologists for Islam)
With the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, often known as ISIS, Billoo said she has noticed an increase in complaints of derogatory comments targeting individual Muslims in the area.
Before a packed meeting, the Kennesaw City Council tabled a vote on a proposal that would allow an Islamic worship center to open in the middle of a shopping center, Kennesaw Commons. The plan drew sharp debate over both zoning and Islam itself.
11Alive The group’s application says they would hold daily prayers five times a day — involving about ten people each time — as well as a larger and longer worship service each Friday afternoon involving 60 to 80 people.
Opponents argued that a place of worship, no matter the religion, has no place in a retail strip mall. Some expressed opposition to the presence of Muslims, period, saying the worship center in Kennesaw “will endanger our freedom.” “And it’s all about safety,” said a speaker. “Look at the TV every night. It’s global.”
The question should be why in the world, as a Muslim, was he ever hired by Spirit Airlines in the first place?
Courthouse News An Algerian Muslim man says Spirit Airlines wrongly branded him as a potential terrorist and reported him to the FBI merely because he asked about the so-called “takeover switch” during flight training.
In a complaint filed in the federal court in Miami, Ilyes Yakoub says he applied for a position as a pilot with Spirit Airlines in August 2013, and was hired at an initial salary of $1,000 per month with a $750 per diem as he completed flight training. He says that on September 17, 2013, he was given his oral examination, and advised that he had successfully passed the examination. Afterwards, his instructor asked if he had any questions.
“Mr. Yakoub replied that he needed some clarification as to exactly how the Priority Switched worked on the joystick of the Airbus 329/320/321. Mr. Yakoub referred to the Priority Switch as a Takeover Switch, which terminology is used by pilots, the National Transportation Safety Board, and others.”
Two weeks after his oral exam, three FBI agents interrogated Yakoub at his home. The agents told Yakoub a complaint was made about him and his question regarding the priority switch. The Spirit flight instructor also told the FBI that Yakoub made “anti-American” statements.
Yakoub said the question was only asked because he would soon by flying that type of plane and wanted to be fully up to speed to ensure the operational safety of his flights. If a pilot does not understand the proper operation of a Priority Switch on a particular airplane, the results can be catastrophic, he said.
On October 5, 2013, Yakoub’s simulator partner took his final exam; Yakoub says he however was denied the opportunity and relegated to “non-flying pilot tasks” during the test. He says his own final exam was rescheduled twice before received an October 7, 2013, call from the head of the school, telling him to come to the training center and to bring all of his Spirit Airlines company materials with him.
Yakoub said when he arrived he was told he was being fired and was handed a termination letter stating, in part, that he had contributed to his simulator partner’s failure. Yakoub notes in his complaint that despite failing the final exam, his partner, a Catholic of Jamaican decent, was not fired. He also claims that ultimately every other student in the training class was hired, except for him and another Middle Eastern man who was also a Muslim.
Yakoub seeks back pay, front pay, lost benefits and punitive damages on claims Spirit Airlines violated his Civil Rights under Title VII as well as under Florida anti-discrimination statutes, and negligent supervision.
MORE REASONS NEVER TO HIRE A MUSLIM
Why Islam and Climate Change? Both are dangerous, tyrannical, political ideologies designed to destroy America and redistribute wealth.
KVUE “We want to make sure we have the correct information in the textbooks,” said Roy White with Truth in Texas Textbooks Coalition. The organization released hundreds of pages of suggested corrections, including to texts characterizing the U.S. as a democracy rather than a constitutional republic.
The group is pursuing other areas of concern as well, including passages it believes promotes Islam over Christianity. The organization argues “jihad” should be defined as a violent religious war, as opposed to the broader and more innocuous “struggle” used by dishonest Muslims. One alleged example of Islamic bias cited in the executive summary references a passage from Worldview Software American History II: Post Civil War America to the Present. The text reads:
“On the other hand, the U.S. forced Israel to withdraw from the area around the Suez Canal in 1956, putting an end to an Israeli invasion of Egypt meant to assure its access to that canal. Most importantly, over the course of many years, the U.S. has prodded Israel (sometimes quite energetically) to seek a comprehensive peace settlement in the Middle East, particularly with the Palestinian people.
The organization’s response states, “The language of invasion is very misleading and casts Israel in the role of aggressor, which is contrary to fact. Also, when it says the U.S. is prodding Israel to make peace with the Palestinians, it looks as though Israel is resisting peace and the Palestinians want it while the reverse is the case.”
“We had a variety of different issues, and we kind of ranked our top ten,” said White. “Some of those areas were pro-Islamic, anti-Christian issues, but there were also many others related to just how Israel is depicted in the Middle East. How our government, free-market system seems to be belittled and not emphasized versus communistic-type governments.”
Yet reviewers for the Texas Freedom Network found passages they felt treated Islam too harshly. In its own summary of concerns, the organization points to a portion of Social Studies School Service Active Classroom: World History which states, “Much of the violence you read or hear about in the Middle East is related to a jihad.”
“This broad charge effectively blames Islam for a very complex cycle of violence and counter-violence,” the Texas Freedom Network summary argues, “A cycle driven by a host of factors (e.g., natural resources, population pressures) besides radical Islam.”
“But the scholars that reviewed those textbooks found that the portrayal of Islam was mostly done pretty fairly and accurately,” said president Kathy Miller.
Legal discovery continues in a lawsuit filed earlier this year by notorious loud-mouthed Newark Muslim leader Mustafa El-Amin against the Newark Board of Education and former Newark Central High Principal and current Newark Mayor Ras Baraka among other defendants. The five count lawsuit, filed by Ryan Linder, Esq., alleges that El-Amin was denied a previously granted religious accommodation and wrongfully terminated because of his religious beliefs.
Herald Online El-Amin, a New Jersey native with a master’s degree in public administration from Rutgers University, had been an employee of the Newark Board of Education since 1983, serving most recently as a tenured special education teacher. Outside of his employment, El-Amin is the Imam of Masjid Ibrahim, one of New Jersey’s largest mosques and is regarded as a leader of New Jersey’s Muslim community.
According to the lawsuit, prior to transferring to Newark Central High, El-Amin requested and was granted a religious accommodation that allowed him to attend Al Jumu’ah, a weekly Muslim religious service, every Friday afternoon, enabling him to observe his faith.
Upon arrival at Central High in 2010, El-Amin demanded the religious accommodation to attend weekly services. According to the lawsuit, El-Amin was denied the religious accommodation and was instead subjected to retaliation, religious discrimination and harassment.
Among the allegations in the lawsuit, defendant Sheila Larenceau, who served as El-Amin’s supervisor, besmirched El-Amin’s reputation among his colleagues and belittled his religious beliefs. According to the lawsuit, Larenceau told two of El-Amin’s fellow teachers that he did not want to do any work because he was solely concerned with that “Muslim stuff.”
When El-Amin complained to then-principal Baraka, his religious accommodation was again denied, according to the lawsuit. Faced with choosing between his faith and his job, El-Amin resigned his position in 2012.
The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages for lost income as well as physical, mental and emotional distress. Copies of the complaint are available for download here and at www.lawsuitpressrelease.com.
MORE REASONS NEVER TO HIRE A MUSLIM
ISIS terrorist rampages, beheadings, and waves of anti-Muslim fear-mongering have inspired a wave of online activism in the form of Twitter hashtags started by Muslims trying to paint a positive image for Islam. Apparently, the response isn’t what they expected.
Religion News (h/t Logans Warning) An army of “clicktivists” — a mix of earnest Muslim advocates has entered the fray armed with 140-character positive, peaceful or humorous counter-messages. Using names such as #TakeOnHate, #IStandUpBecause, and #NotInMyName, the pushback approach promotes the complexity, diversity and positive contributions of Islam and Muslims.
Yet the hashtags are often immediately co-opted by people spewing an opposite message.
The #ISpeakOutBecause hashtag campaign started by the Muslim Public Affairs Council. It began in August by inviting people on Facebook and Twitter “to tell the world why you are not afraid to speak out.” The Facebook page survived, but #ISpeakOutBecause has essentially devolved into a river of insults and denigration.

And FYI: You did not discover trigonometry, algebra, aerodynamics, or anything else you like to steal credit for from the people who actually did the inventing. See link below if you don’t believe me.
Of course, they are. If you aren’t sure if the owners of your local convenience stores/gas stations are Muslim, ask them. Many of these owners are Hindus and they will be happy to tell you if they are. If they won’t tell you whether or not they are Muslim, don’t give them your business.
The words “Fuck Islam” were written using motor oil on the driveway of a home of a Muslim in St. Paul. Hey, here’s an idea, paint over it, then get over it.
“Federal law enforcement authorities should assist in bringing the perpetrators of this apparent hate crime to justice,” said CAIR-MN Executive Director Lori Saroya. “Minnesota’s political and religious leaders have a responsibility to speak out strongly against the growing anti-Muslim sentiment in our society that can lead to this type of disturbing incident.”
It is becoming increasingly clear that Sharia Law is a contentious issue that continues to arise in the United States. Meanwhile, Muslim-sympathizing leftists continue to turn the other cheek. Recently, a sign was discovered that illustrates the issue of Sharia law infiltrating America, causing outrage among Muslims and their leftist allies.
American News (h/t Manithan) The sign comes after Sharia Law has forced even large American chain retailers to give in to relentless Muslim demands for excessive religious accommodations in the public sphere. Several states have passed amendments which ban sharia law from being recognized by the courts for any reason.
A N. Carolina woman was shocked at an assignment her son brought home from school that shows the public high school is indoctrinating students with Islamic propaganda including the idea that Muslims have stronger faith in their religion than Christians do.
Biz Pac Review According to WJZY-TV, the woman in Union County, N.C., contacted the station with a homework assignment that included fill in the blank sentences in which the correct answer appears to show students are being indoctrinated.
The worksheet includes blanks for students to fill in with information about Islam. Sentences include:
It’s important to note that school officials haven’t confirmed to WJZY reporters whether the answsers the woman’s son wrote in were the “correct” ones, but given that the station reported that Porter Ridge High School has had several opportunities to do so, it’s a pretty good bet the kid wrote exactly what he was being taught and the school district is trying to figure out how to play it for the media.
“If you are going to do it, let’s do it right,” the mother told WJYZ-TV. “I really feel there is a spin on this.” Ya think?
It should be noted that school officials have yet to provide a completed version of the worksheet to the news outlet. Though it appears that the high school has not disputed the content, the answers were filled in by the student and seemingly have yet to be verified as 100 percent correct.
My Fox Carolinas reports that the mother called the school to see if they would teach Christianity in a similar way. The school, however, didn’t give her an answer about how they would teach the topic; her son told her they had skimmed Christianity in class.
If after “Islam, at heart is …” the kid had written “a murderous fanaticism responsible for global havoc,” he probably wouldn’t have gotten a gold star. If he had filled in the blank on the second sentence so it read, “Most Muslims are far more likely to strap explosives to their bodies and blow themselves to pieces just to kill a Jew than the average Christian,” he’d be in a public school re-education camp somewhere by now — along with his mom probably.
Check out the other sentences too where the kid writes that radical Islam is opposed to the “imperialistic pursuits” of the West, and redefining the bloody “jihad” Americans see on their television screens nightly.
If this kid is making these answers up on his own, the mother has bigger problems than the local high school.
But he’s probably not.
