Anti-Dhimmitude In Greeley, Colorado

The JBS Swift Company gave in to Moslems' demands for Ramadan.

The next day, other workers at the facility aren't taking kindly to the company's dhimmitude:
...[A]ll the other workers of all cultures and nationalities have walked out in protest, just as they had in Greeley, CO nearly two weeks ago.
A compromise reached to accommodate prayer for about 500 Somalian meatpacking plant workers in Grand Island led to a counter protest of even more workers at the JBS Swift & Co. plant Wednesday.

Workers including Caucasians, Hispanics, Vietnamese, and African-Americans walked out after clocking in on the B shift shortly after 3 p.m. [A commenter to this news story says that the Sudanese were not with the Somalis, but with this group of counter-demonstrators]

The objection — a change in the break schedule that leaves B shift workers shorted of hours Monday through Friday and forces them to work Saturday to earn at least 40 hours of pay.

“The Somalians say they can only work three hours after sunset, so we’re supposed to work 7.3 hours a day Monday through Friday,” said Naomi Jakubowski. “We’re supposed to come in and make up the time on Saturday or be shorted at just 36 hours.”

“I don’t want to sacrifice my Saturdays with my kids — and I can’t raise ‘em on 36 hours of pay,” she said. “I’ve got rent, food and diapers to buy.”

500 of 2500 employees are muslim. That's 20%. IIRC, I previously read that these meat packing facilities were accomodating the 'majority' of employees. Sure doesn't appear that way when you actualize the demographic.

I can't locate the link now, but not long ago, someone posted an article which included a linear chart on the relationship between the percentage of muslim demographic and it's impact on host societies based on current global statistics.

If anyone finds it . . .kindly post it.

Meat packing industries, for that matter, all employers (as well as those involved with misguided compassionate immigration) should take these statistics into consideration.

Found the link . . .

here is a set of significant statistics forwarded to me by a friend. It charts the progression of Islamic jihad, both soft and hard methods, whose purpose is to establish a global caliphate, especially in the West.

It begins by stating:

“Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.”

I would disagree. It is definitely a religion and a political system combined. Any attempt to “separate” mosque and state would emasculate Islam. I have argued this point in past commentaries and will not dwell on it here. And cults, if not opposed by reason and kept by it on the far fringes of a civilized society, have a tendency to become religions that may become state policies. Ecology was once a “cult.” Now we have the Environmental Protection Agency.

It goes on to state:

“Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.”

Or a mask, or a ruse. But no one should doubt how seriously Islamists and Muslims in general take the religious component. Islam is a barbaric but fully integrated system, perhaps more lethally integrated than was Nazism.

“Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’”

I would defend anyone’s right to believe in Islam. The question is: How could one truly practice Islam without declaring jihad on others? After a Muslim has won the “internal struggle” or jihad within himself, the next step is to wage it against all others. To refrain from that part of jihad is to risk the accusation of being a slacker or pseudo-Muslim. From the first stage to the last, all such effort constitutes “working towards the Prophet and Allah.”

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agreed to ‘the reasonable’ Muslims demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source: CIA: The World Fact Book, 2007).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country it will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone….

Here is where it becomes interesting. Note throughout the exponential scale of Islamic influence as the percentage of Muslim population per country increases. Comments in square brackets are my corrective interjections.

§ United States: 1.0
§ Australia: 1.5
§ Canada: 1.9
§ China: 1.0-2.0
§ Italy: 1.5
§ Norway: 1.8

“At 2% and 3% they [Muslims] begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.”

§ Denmark: 2.0
§ Germany: 3.7
§ United Kingdom: 2.7
§ Spain: 4.0
§ Italy: 4.6

“From 5% on they [Muslims] exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (“clean” by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves – along with threats for failure to comply (United States).”

§ France: 8.0
§ Philippines: 5.0
§ Sweden: 5.0
§ Switzerland: 4.3
§ The Netherlands: 5.5
§ Trinidad & Tobago: 5.8

“At this point, they [Muslims] will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, or Islamic law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

“When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris – car burning). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam, Denmark – Mohammed cartoons, murder of Theo van Gogh).”

§ Guyana: 10.0
§ India: 13.4
§ Israel: 16.0
§ Kenya: 10.0
§ Russia: 10.0-15.0

The one anomaly in this set of statistics is Israel, which has not experienced uprisings and threats of violence. Its Arab or Muslim population enjoys equal political rights with Jewish Israelis. The suicide bombings and rocket attacks that have killed hundreds have been perpetrated by outsiders.

“After reaching 20% [of a population] expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

§ Ethiopia: 32.8

“After 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:”

§ Bosnia: 40.0
§ Chad: 53.1
§ Lebanon: 59.7

”From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and jizya, the tax placed on [conquered] infidels:”

§ Albania: 70.0
§ Malaysia: 60.4
§ Qatar: 77.5
§ Sudan: 70.0

“After 80%, expect state-run ethnic cleansing and genocide:”

§ Bangladesh: 83.0
§ Egypt: 90.0
§ Gaza: 98.7
§ Indonesia: 86.1
§ Iran: 98.0
§ Iraq: 97.0
§ Jordan: 92.0
§ Morocco: 98.7
§ Pakistan: 97.0
§ Palestine: 99.0
§ Syria: 90.0
§ Tajikistan: 90.0
§ Turkey: 99.8
§ United Arab Emirates: 96.0

I question the inclusion of “Palestine” in this set. “Palestine” simply means space occupied by stateless “Palestinians” in Gaza and the West Bank, and is the name of the state which Islamists wish to replace Israel, once it is destroyed. Turkey, after decades of having a secular, non-religious government, is beginning to turn “religious,” and seems to be yearning for the kind of Muslim government that cleansed the country in 1915 of non-Muslim Armenians in a genocide that predates the Holocaust.

“100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ – the Islamic House of Peace’ [more correctly, dar-al-Islam, or Land of Islam]. There is supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim.”

§ Afghanistan: 100.0
§ Saudi Arabia: 100.0
§ Somalia: 100.0
§ Yemen: 99.9

“Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.“’Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel.’ Leon Uris, The Haj.

“It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average[s] would indicate.

“Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.”

And if Christians wish to pray on Ash Wednesday?

Or Jews take the first two days for Passover?

Or Shinto wish to venerate ancestors?

OR Zorosastrians....

I have a feeling the answer would be personal or vacation days, just as it is at many corporations for the most holy days in the jewish religion.

Islam is just ONE religion. It should be COMPELLED to follow the same policies as every other one.

Nothing more, and nothing less.

Equal before the law, AND the corporate policy.

Or there will be....

Is there a decrease in productivity during Ramadan? Maybe Ramadanists should all take their annual vacations on Ramadan.

That's what America is supposed to stand for (among other principles).

Hmmmmm....That's a very good question. I don't know of any studies on the matter.

Just fire the flaming pieces of crap. They can't be that good of a group of employees, ramada-n or not.

Update via Refugee Resettlement Watch:

GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska — Managers at a Nebraska meatpacking plant have told Muslim employees, most of them Somali, that shift changes made to meet their prayer demands weren’t working and would be ended.

Now, that's more like it!

Ann is really staying on top of the story.
