Islamaphobia In Dubai?

So it seems that some employers in Arab states won’t employ veiled women either. Nice. So much for western bigotry.

Veils Bother Even Muslim Employers 

DUBAI (Reuters) – Aysha Obeid is hoping that job prospects in a Muslim country will improve for her now that she’s decided to abandon the veil which usually covers her face.

The 22-year-old says several potential employers in the United Arab Emirates have turned her down because she wore the niqab, a face veil that usually leaves only the eyes uncovered.

Obeid, a national of the UAE, now only wears the head scarf more commonly worn by Muslim women around the world.

“No one takes women with niqab in the retail sector,” said Obeid who unsuccessfully applied for jobs at two retail outlets. She is now looking for back office administrative jobs where she believes she may have more chance of being employed.

Many devout women in the conservative Arabian Peninsula wear the niqab, but most Muslim clerics say women are only required to wear a head scarf.

While objections to the niqab have stirred up controversy outside the Muslim world, women who cover their face in the region also say they have trouble getting jobs, particularly those requiring them to interact with the public.

“Women in niqabs do not sit at the counter. They take administrative jobs,” said Abdullah Naser, a manager at a Dubai post office. “Clients need to know who they are talking to.”

Face veils have been a hot political issue in Europe and parts of the Middle East over the rights of wearers to attend schools in secular societies or become policewomen, teachers and take other jobs which interact with the public while wearing the niqab or similar face-covering veils. – Crossroads Arabia

Putin Nostalgic For The Old Days

Sex for the Motherland supported by your local one party state. Probably the only government in Europe that understands the demographic danger they are in.

Remember the mammoths, say the clean-cut organisers at the youth camp’s mass wedding. “They became extinct because they did not have enough sex. That must not happen to Russia”. Obediently, couples move to a special section of dormitory tents arranged in a heart-shape and called the Love Oasis, where they can start procreating for the motherland. With its relentlessly upbeat tone, bizarre ideas and tight control, it sounds like a weird indoctrination session for a phoney religious cult. But this organisation – known as “Nashi”, meaning “Ours” – is youth movement run by Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin that has become a central part of Russian political life. More @ Daily Mail

Another great argument for the abolition of the CRTC 

Christian radio station forced to give time to other faiths

When is a Christian radio station not a Christian radio station? For the hour or so a day that it must air the views of other faiths to satisfy the CRTC’s “balance” policy. “It’s ridiculous,” says Bob Du Broy, vice-president of Ottawa’s CHRI Christian music station. “It’s like asking a rock station to play an hour of classical music.” CHRI’s announcers also find themselves in the bizarre situation of working for a Christian station without being able to talk much about Christianity for fear of triggering the “balance” issue. – More @ Ottawa Citizen

On June 17,1963 the Supreme Court in the US issued the famous Murray v. Curlett decision outlawing organized prayer in schools. Since that date there have been countless court cases directed at schools and school boards to drive out the evil Christian faith. The ACLU has been front and centre in this effort. But what happens when a different faith is involved? The ACLU is silent. So Roger Hedgecock leads the fight.

School Stops Scheduling Class Time For Muslim Prayer 

A San Diego school that drew international attention for setting aside time for Muslim students to pray in the classroom will no longer do so, it was reported Friday. Instead, Carver Elementary’s schedule will be reconfigured so students can say their required midday prayers during lunch. Courts have long upheld students’ rights to pray on their own during lunch or recess, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. When the new school year begins, Carver will have two lunch periods, including one that will fall when Muslims typically say their midday prayer — between 1 and 2 p.m., the newspaper reported.

[...]

Some alleged that the school was violating the separation of church and state by giving Muslims time to pray. The district maintained that it is legally required to approve students’ request for religious accommodation.  – 10Nes.com

Interesting that the ACLU didn’t try to drive this from the school in the first place. I guess they aren’t realy anti-religion, just anti-Christian. I also wonder how the board has worked in the past to approve Christian students’ request for religious accommodation.
