Supermarket sued over booze

If I were an employer, would I employ a Muslim? It’s something I’ve often thought about. It’s against the law here in Blighty to discriminate on the grounds of religion, but I’m sure I’d find myself looking for some way of saying no.

I’m not an employer, so the situation will never arise.

But many employers – and others – will be enraged by a story that comes from Leicestershire (it’s in the Loughborough Echo) about a Muslim who is suing Tesco because he had to handle crates of booze in a warehouse.

Poor, dear Mohammed Ahmed was employed at Tesco’s Litchfield depot in September 2007 to move stuff about on a forklift truck.

But the 32-year-old Saudi told an employment tribunal that he hadn’t been told that he would be moving alcoholic drinks.

What did he think he would be moving? Fresh air? The stores sell alcoholic drinks, so did he think that, by some magic, they wouldn’t be part of his job?

Read the rest here, including a link to another post about how a couple who wanted the contraceptive pill (the morning-after pill here in the UK, but I think Americans call it Plan B) were refused by a Muslim pharmacist at another supermarket chain.

Tesco say they have an open-door policy and try to be sensitive to people’s beliefs. Perhaps these idiot religious types should just be told, “Look, mate, the job’s yours if want it but you’ll have to do it – all of it. If you have any qualms, bugger off and find an employer in Saudi Arabia or somewhere, where your superstitions will be kowtowed to.”

I just read over at Dhimmi Watch, that Ahmed knew in advance that Tesco sells alcohol.

But the 32-year-old Saudi told an employment tribunal that he hadn’t been told that he would be moving alcoholic drinks.

Taqiyya alert?

Without a doubt, AOW.

Methinks Ahmed got pissed at his boss for an entirely separate matter and then flopped the Muslim card for special treatment or as a get-rich scheme.

According to this article, newsworthy stunts like Ahmed's are sometimes deliberately provoked, and this seems likely if he already knew he would be moving alcohol when he was hired. Pushing for concessions is part of Islam's relentless encroachment. Here's a quote from the article:

"Islamists sometimes even provoke incidents intended to make the American Muslim community feel under siege, presumably in an attempt to compel them to unite. The case of the six imams who were denied access to a U.S. Airways flight in 2006 is instructive. CAIR, which represented these imams, claimed this was a clear case of discrimination against Muslims. Yet the imams were prevented from flying not because they were Muslim or held a prayer session directly outside the gate (and again on the plane, which is peculiar since even devout Muslims do not pray this frequently), but because they were behaving like hijackers. The imams demanded to board at the same time even though only two had first-class tickets and then attempted to reseat themselves on the plane in a suspicious formation (two in the tail, two in the mid-section, and two in first class). They muttered loudly in Arabic about jihad and cursed the United States for its involvement in Iraq. They requested seat belt extensions (which can be used as makeshift weapons) even though none was large enough to need it. Other Muslim passengers on the flight were not harassed. Given their blatantly suspicious behavior it has been suggested by many that the imams were deliberately trying to provoke their removal from the airplane."

Exactly.

It's part of "the plan."

Always, what do you see as the purpose of these stunts? So they get in the newspapers. Does it lead to a concession or appeasement of some sort, at least some of the time? Probably.

The article said publicity for stunts like this makes Muslims feel under siege. I guess especially if we get all riled up at such outrageous stupidity. I've noticed in the Qur'an and in the writings of the "mainstream Muslim" community I have recently subscribed to, the "Islam is being persecuted" theme is rampant. It's like their stand in life. It allows them to be on the aggressive all time time while portraying themselves as merely "defending Islam."
