Male nurse 'fired for treating women wearing Muslim hijab' ( Detroit )
ap ^ | 25th November 2011

A male registered nurse and Vietnam war Army medic has sued the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, saying he was fired for disobeying a Muslim supervisor's order not to treat women wearing conservative Islamic dress.

John Benitez Jr. ... was fired... 'not because of any performance problem, but was instead carried out because the clinic's conservative male Muslim clientele did not want a male treating female patients.'

If Muslim men are going to let their personal observation of sharia get them upset with gummit clinics that have laxer policies, by cracky let them boycott those clinics. But this sounds like a slam dunk first amendment case. (The doctor may still wish to enter private practice, where this kind of bull hockey does not prevail.)

Don’t the women unveil themselves anyhow for the examination? It sounds unlikely that the doctor saw anybody who was literally still in a hijab. This is so bizarre. What do they expect, genies?!?

The ACLU will take action right away. That is when they can shake free some time and resources away from defending Sharia Law implementations.

Sharia law increasingly sinking its roots, ever deeper into the fabric of America.

When will candidates ever begin to discuss what they will do to stop the islamization of America.

And since Muslims forbid women the education to become physicians or nurses, sick women must be let to die or recover, as Allah wills.

I hope that he wins millions from the muslime loving bastards. Islime must be eradicated and all muslimes deported.

Why don't the Muslims in Dearbornistan create their own hospital that has no Jewish doctors and has separate entrances for women where they will be treated an Islamic veterinarian along with the other cattle?

Actually, your plan would violate the civil rights laws on public accomodations.

The first time a woman is refused service the hospital will be sued.

If standard practice is for the muslim father or husband to slit her throat to sooth his honor then I can see why they dont want a male to treat her.

Its akin to murdering her.

Hijab = headscarf, not veil.

That said, even inseveral areas of Britainistan, male gynecologists can not look directly at the female’s “problem areas”, but must turn their back, and use a mirror!

Now pushing their crap here.

Erm, they’re still seeing her girly bits, so how is that significantly different? I can’t think stupid enough for that to make any sense at all, really.

Obviously you have not been sufficiently lobotomized to become a Muslim. If you beat your head with a 3# hammer for 10 minutes, then it may begin to make sense.

Thankfully, I can learn of their insanities, without any urge to try to understand them.

As for me, I’m with you; looking at a naked woman, or her reflection, or even her picture, is all pretty much the same thing, if you’re not supposed to be looking at her.

First Amendment case?

That would be nice if it happened in America, but this is Detroit we're talking about.

(sarcasm)(or is it?)

The clinic has been closed for budgetary reasons. Here’s a bit more to the story from the Detroit News:

The city closed the clinic June 30 amid budget cuts.

A Dearborn spokeswoman declined comment.

Hospitals and health clinics routinely make accommodations based on religion, said Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations. “In general, unless it is for emergency situations, many Muslims would prefer being screened and touched by someone of the same gender,” Walid said. “If he was fired based upon an order from a supervisor, that obviously would be unjust.”

How so? If you were foolish enough to take any member of your family there they would treat them just like they would any other dhimmi foolish enough to go there.
