    Ex-employees claim company wouldn’t let them delay meal break during Ramadan Sixteen Muslims “involuntary resigned” from their jobs at an automotive supplier in Warren because the company refused to accommodate their planned religious observance, their attorneys said Wednesday. The ex-employees of Brose Jefferson, who worked the afternoon shift, had requested they be allowed to take their unpaid, 30-minute meal break at 9 p.m. instead of the usual 7 p.m., during Ramadan. During Ramadan, which was celebrated worldwide from May 27 to June 25, Muslims observe strict fasting from sunrise to sunset. On Friday, May 26, the Muslim employees on the...

    Imam Ammar Shahin is taking heat for a sermon at the Islamic Center of Davis (ICD) last Friday in which he called on Allah to annihilate Jews and “let us a play a part in this,” and liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Israel from “the filth of the Jews.” The Al-Aqsa Mosque is in East Jerusalem, on a holy site for both Jews and Muslims, and has been riddled with conflict and bloodshed as the war rages on between the two sides. Jewish groups are up in arms and calling on Homeland Security. A Muslim within the community chalked it...

    Right Wing Watch ^ | July 25, 2017 | Miranda Blue
    Sarah Pulliam Bailey at the Washington Post reports this morning that a handful of conservative evangelical leaders have issued coordinated statements supporting Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner as he faces allegations of improper contacts with Russian government officials. Those defending Kushner include some of Trump’s earliest and strongest supporters on the Religious Right, including Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress, Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. and prosperity gospel preacher Paula White. Also included in the group is Samuel Rodriquez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, who has criticized Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric while simultaneously giving Trump political cover:...

    The same kind of smokescreen with which longtime Hillary shill Debbie Wasserman-Schultz now uses to smear American citizens demanding answers as ‘Islamophobes’ Crafty Democrats blame “massive Federal Islamophobia” for Rep. Debbie (aka ‘Blabbermouth”) Wasserman Schultz’s , top IT Guy Imran Awan, who spread like a plague among her Democrat colleagues in the House, being outed by the FBI. “Massive Federal Islamophobia”? Try massive ‘Liarophobia’, Ms. Blabbermouth because that’s what millions of deplorables really deplore most; elected politicians who lie like the proverbial rug to the masses they are so handsomely paid to represent.
  • Minneapolis Hypocrisy: Of Course, This Cop Shooting NOT About Race

    Whenever a black person is shot and killed by a police officer who's not black, it's always about race. But for some strange reason after an Australian bride-to-be Justine Ruszczyk Damond was shot and killed by a police officer who just happens to be a black Muslim of Somali ancestry, it's NOT a race issue... because the Somali community says so. It's all about them now being the victim.

    Trudeau is sending out the message that imams preaching death to Jews and gays and treating women as second class citizens is okay in his Canada. And it seems it is The Canadian Press has obtained a copy of a draft citizenship guide the Liberals are working on. These guides are used by people studying to pass their citizenship test. The last time the guide was updated was in 2011 under the Harper government. While some of the changes to the guide were expected based upon Trudeau’s criticism of the Tories’ guide, others were totally unexpected. When former Immigration Minister...

    Welcome to the Brave New World where girls can no longer be girls or boys, boys in a coming society where no one knows who or what they really are in a world where both politicians and popes claim there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism The progressive lib-left’s growing obsession with coddling the transgendered is giving big ideas to ISIS terrorists. The latest ‘minority’, granted sweeping special favors by uber politically correct governments, trannies are no longer just cropping up in school bathrooms and locker rooms, their props are now copied by terrorists on the run.

    Canada Free Press ^ | 07/23/17 | Dave Merrick
    Surely, if Islam is making any one statement, its most glaringly evident message is "NO TRESPASSING ALLOWED ON ISLAM!" As some are speculating, I will also guess that Officer Mohamed Noor, after hearing what might have sounded like a shot, may have believed Justine Damon had a gun in her hand as she leaned toward the squad car in her pajamas. If that was the case, his allegedly firing the shots that killed the unarmed Australian woman was simply the worst of judgments in the presence of panic. In saying all that, I’m straining - times 10 - to give...
  • Trump’s White House Has Evangelicals ‘On Speed Dial,’ Says Activist Who Prayed Over President

    Newsweek ^ | July 22, 2017 | Conor Gaffey
    Evangelical Christians have unprecedented access to President Donald Trump’s White House and are “on speed dial” with the administration, according to an activist who prayed over the president in the Oval Office. The evangelical community overwhelmingly backed the Republican in November’s election, and Trump has been quick to repay it. The president has signed an executive order on religious liberty and cut funding to abortion providers overseas....

    While I tend to vote for Republicans more often than Democrats, keep in mind that I live in the Northeast and Republicans in New Jersey tend to be fairly moderate, as I’d say I am. I have numerous friends who are Democrats and admire many public officials who represent the Democrat party. I believe it is necessary for both major parties to be well represented and combine their ideas, because I think both parties have good ideas that should be implemented. But if the Democrats were smart, they’d run far away from Linda Sarsour. This is a woman who said...

    This week, Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor shot Justine Damond to death. Damond was unarmed and in her pajamas at the time of the slaying. The incident occurred after, Damond made a 911 call reporting a possible rape in progress outside her home. She was killed as she spoke to Noor's police partner through the open window of the patrol car. Whether Noor should have been employed as a cop seems more of a triumph of "diversity" than good sense. Those who know him have used words like "extremely nervous," "jumpy," and "the least little thing can set him off."...
  • What is halal?

    Halal Choices ^ | Sep 9, 2015
    Halal simply means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. This means that for any food to be considered halal it must comply with the religious ritual and observance of Sharia law. Here at Halal Choices we are concerned with the halal slaughter of animals such as beef, lamb and poultry. To be halal certified the animal must be facing Mecca, have its throat cut while still alive and then ritually sacrificed by a Muslim who recites a prayer dedicating the...

    Palestinian terrorists have changed the conditions for maintaining the status quo by bringing their slaughter into the immediate vicinity of the Temple Mount holy site Last Friday, three Arabs killed two Israeli police officers who were guarding an entrance to Jerusalem’s holy compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. The police officers were shot with arms that had evidently been smuggled into the compound and stashed there. This latest attack was another in an unending series of terrorist murders of Israelis, but this time the attack took place at Old Jerusalem’s sacred...

    Don’t invest in politics, the television screen or the screamers who work at turning the Western world upside down. Invest in eternity and how—hard as it may be—you can make it there Don’t wait until someone falls gravely ill to pray for them. Pray every day for other people in the most sincere way of them all: prayers fervently offered on your knees in the privacy of silence, with no one but the Creator even knowing that you are at prayer. Keep a generic prayer for strangers close to your lips: ’For any and all of those in trouble at...

    The Australian published a story last week written by a 71-year-old woman named Lynn Barber who lives in London. Barber was influenced by seeing pictures of refugees struggling to make it to Europe and one day she decided she had to do something about it. She happened to know an artist (Mike) who had worked at a refugee camp in France and told him that, if he knew of a refugee who needed a home, she would take that person in. A few weeks later, Mike called and brought Mohammed over. And just like that, Barber found herself alone with...
  • NAACP Leader: Praying With Trump Is 'Theological Malpractice Bordering on Heresy'

    Fox News Insider ^ | July 17, 2017
    A North Carolina preacher who serves as the state's NAACP chair said the Twitter photo of Evangelical leaders "laying hands" on President Trump in prayer was "theological malpractice." Rev. William Barber II, of the Greenleaf church in Goldsboro said the Evangelical leaders should not have "prayed" with Trump while he is "preying on the most vulnerable." "You're violating the sacred principles of religion," Barber said, calling the incident "a form of theological malpractice bordering on heresy." Barber took issue with Trump's support for the "very very very extreme agenda" of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) -...

    The efforts of British medical personnel to prevent Charlie Gard from receiving experimental treatment implies they don't understand how important participating in medical research is. All medical treatments begin as experiments. Someone had to be the first to be treated for rabies. Someone had to be the first to receive a heart transplant. Sixty years ago my grandfather had experimental treatment for skin cancer on his face that didn't work as expected because, according to my dad, The doctor applied the radiation for too long. Decades later doctors used the knowledge they gained from treating my grandfather and others to...

    In a recent interview with CTV News, Marie-Claude Bibeau, Canada's Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, called abortion a "tool to end poverty" and labeled the Catholic Church's objections "illogical and self-serving." "Abortions reduce the number of people sharing the world's resources," Bibeau pointed out. "Culling the population in this manner means there is a bigger slice of the pie for each survivor. The Church's opposition would condemn an ever-growing human herd to subsist on shrinking shares of material goods." "I try to be tolerant of their religious beliefs, but I can't acquiesce to their sinister plan to promote...

    The Iraqi government said it will be investigating a video apparently showing Iraqi troops throwing captured ISIS fighters off a high ledge and killing them, just days after Iraq’s prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, declared victory over ISIS in the city of Mosul. The unverified video shows men in uniform throwing a man off a ledge and then shooting him. According to the BBC, the Iraqi government said that if the video is authentic, those responsible will be brought to justice. “In the final weeks of the battle for west Mosul, the pervasive attitude that I have observed among armed forces...

    My wife Michelle and I have three sons and one daughter. Much to the dismay of foolish, so-called “feminists” like Jody Allard, we’re raising every one of them to be “dangerous,” though, not in the sense that Ms. Allard imagines. It’s worse—much, much, worse. In case you missed it, Ms. Allard is the infamous mother who—while longing for “safe,” “feminist men,” and lamenting the allegedly numerous men who populate the so-called “rape culture,”—has more than once publicly shamed her two sons. I suppose the young men—both in their late teens—should at least be thankful that their angry, deceived, corrupted-by-liberalism mother...
