Skip to comments.The Obama Administration Fights For Sharia Law At The Expense of Public School Students
Posted on 12/16/2010 8:32:00 AM PST by FBD
Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to sue a suburban Chicago school district for denying a Muslim middle school female teacher three weeks of unpaid leave to abandon her students and make a pilgrimage to Mecca. The teacher wanted to perform the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia which every adult Muslim is supposed to make at least once in a lifetime if he or she is able to do so. Ironically, the Obama administration is suing over a practice that discriminates against women. Under Islamic law, a woman is not allowed to perform Hajj alone and must be accompanied by an adult Muslim Mahram (father, husband, son or brother etc.). And for an administration that claims it regards a quality education for our public school students to be one of its highest priorities, it is willing to fight for the right of a Muslim teacher to abandon the students in her charge so that she can trek to Mecca for a few weeks.

Eric Holder is a complete disgrace.
This regime must go and go soon.
Watch em twist in the wind!
So since she says she has to go at least once, what’s to keep her from taking 3 weeks off every year?
The Muslim World is giving America the Bird with the assistance of the Closet Muslim Traitorous President
who HATES America! Obozo Lied about his Birthplace and has
eradicated all of his Past Life History!!! America!! WAKEUP!! This Slimeball is Pure Evil!!
she can’t do this in the summer when she’s off anyway?
Unless I missed it, this article (and another I read recently) don’t state whether the school system allows leave of this length for other things. If they do, this lawsuit has merit. If they do not, then it should be tossed out like yesterday’s newspaper.
The Obama Administration is in place to facilitate the Islamic Hijacking of America! Obama knows that if he is able to make America the 58th Caliphate, then he will be rewarded with Thousands of GAY Lovers in the Hereafter! :-(
Leaving this guy in place for two more years is playing Russian Roulette with three chambers loaded. Unless the Republican party grows a pair and starts going after this guy and his jihad cell of czars, 9/11 is going to look mild compared to what will happen the next time.
Or, maybe I'm just a pessimist for not thinking it'll all work out OK since we're all citizens with the best interest of our country at heart. You know, we disagree but we're all really good Americans.
I am a bit confused. I thought only Muslim MALES had to make the pilgrimage and that females were not allowed to do so.
How foolish it is to give bullets to someone that wants to shoot you dead.
No, women can make the haj. But they have to be accompanied by a husband or male relative.
Most school districts have the right to deny requests for leaves of absences, don’t they? She asked for 3 weeks, they said no.
The justice dept is seeking a court order requiring the school district to accommodate Islamic religious practices and beliefs.
If this is to done at least once in her life time.Why is she picking to do this in the middle of a school year ?Why is Obama/Holder trying to make this school board comply with this one woman’s interpretation of Islamic law.
Indeed. But again, if they have a stated policy of allowing these types of leaves or have done so in the past, then unless they can show there was a compelling reason for denying her request, then the suit has some standing.
I know that most school district's grant leave, but I would imagine they have a policy as to what constitutes a valid request.
OK, Is Eric Holder a Muslim?
The real point of the lawsuit is to make the school system submit to Islam.
WINSTON CHURCHILL ON ISLAM - IN 1899!
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia
in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many
countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods
of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.
The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as
his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must
delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased
to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid
qualities - but the influence of the religion paralyses the social
development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists
in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and
proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa,
raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity
is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it
had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell
the civilization of ancient Rome.”
-Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages
248-50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).
HERE IS ANOTHER QUOTE:
“To me it seems certain that the fatalistic teachings of Muhammad and the utter degradation of women is the outstanding cause for the arrested development of the Arab. He is exactly as he was around the year 700, while we have kept on developing”
— General George S. Patton: The War as I Knew it, 1974, p.49
No. Hajj is a once a year Saudi spectacle, that like everything else Muslim, is 100% controlled in every detail.
Making a personal pilgrimage at any other time doesn't count; nor does it count if any detail of any part of it is incorrectly performed.
but aren’t they on a lunar calendar? won’t the time of year change a bit every year?
Yes, Hajj season will occur in the summer in about 8 years, and since the pilgrimage is only obligatory once in a lifetime, and she's in her 20's, it does not constitute something that should disrupt the school.
There is no doubt that she could wait a few years for a regularly scheduled vacation time/Hajj correspondance.
It could be that if she had some time (and tenure) under her
burka belt, she would have qualified for the leave. I know that whenever I was a new employee that I didn't qualify (nor expect to) for privleges & benifits longer term employees enjoyed.
I still have yet to hear what the (to her) compelling reason was for 2008 to be "the year"...especially as she only began working for the district in 2007.
>>the (to her) compelling reason was for 2008 to be “the year
She’ll neve admit it, but one of purposes of Islamists in America is to keep pushing the envelope of acceptablity of Islamic mores and tenets in America.
Exhibit A: At Harvard, MUSLIM Women Only setasides at one of the pools.
That’s partially an influence of Saudi endowments, but others like this teacher will push the boundaries on their own.
And people wonder why so many Americans believe 0b0z0 is a closeted muslim.
Where is the supposed separation of "Church" and State? Maybe Holder is interpreting this principal literally, i.e., being anti-Christian while giving others a carte blanche!
The Communist regime is suing on behalf of a religion. That is a first! Dont forget the Barack Panthers, Issa.
