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.
