DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Attorneys filed a federal lawsuit against IHOP and a local franchise owner on Tuesday, claiming that the restaurant owners fired four managers across the Metroplex in 2010 because they are Muslim. The attorneys for the four managers said that their clients are still unemployed because of the damage done to their reputations.
The managers worked at IHOP locations in Plano, Burleson, Fort Worth and Arlington all owned by Anthraper Investments.
It became very clear to them that they were no longer wanted, explained attorney James Vagnini, who represents the men in their lawsuit. One by one, over the course of about four to five months, each of them was fired.
According to the lawsuit, the managers had performed their jobs without incident for anywhere between seven to 14 years, enduring harassment about of their religion. On 9/11, they would get an email from the owner of Anthraper Investments saying, Lay low, its 9/11. Comments referring to Arabs as dogs. That Arab men dont treat women fairly, said Vagnini.

That is true and why I won't go to Arab doctors or any other Arab businessmen.
I have six dogs and not a damn one of them is Arab or a muzzie.
I thought ragheads couldn’t be around pork products, why would they even want to work in such an unclean environment?
There’s an insult in Arabic that is said as “ya kalb!” which means “You dog!”. To say it is extremely insulting is putting it mildly.
A President Mitt will do nothing about the virus of islam.
Price out burkhas for your granddaughters.
Doing nothing is still (nose clamps in place) to be preferred over actively supporting it because you're one of them. And an unleashed "one of them" at that. If he chooses to do nothing we'll just have to do it for him.
Arabs hired a lawyer named Vagini? Is that plural for something?
Seriously. One is enough! :-)
Downthread in the article comments is a post that “claims” the owner is actually an Islamic woman...
I have no way of determining the truth of that particular claim.
But if factual, it would negate the lawsuit, and logically explain a few of the pointed comments from an “owner” to “management” regarding directives about specific cultural “sensitivities” of their local customer base.
I really do hope that claim is true! ROTFLMAO!
That is no “Breakfast Sampler” that is an “Artery Clogger”
Serves them right for hiring them in the first place. Every small business owner should know better by now.
Profiling is an important tool in police work and hiring.
You must have a big stomach!
Just an item from the IHOP menu.

Would have been a nice touch, though, had it been true.
And neither will Obama.
Oh well, I guess it was too delicious to be true.
I was hoping.
