Muslims in Europe dogged by bias, Amnesty says {boo hoo hoo}
CNN ^ | 24 April 2012 | Joe Sterling

Posted on 04/24/2012 8:10:01 AM PDT by Cronos

Muslims in Europe face discrimination in education, employment and religious freedom, an Amnesty International report said.

"Muslim women are being denied jobs and girls prevented from attending regular classes just because they wear traditional forms of dress, such as the headscarf. Men can be dismissed for wearing beards associated with Islam," said Marco Perolini, Amnesty International's expert on discrimination. "Rather than countering these prejudices, political parties and public officials are all too often pandering to them in their quest for votes."

The report, titled "Choice and Prejudice: Discrimination Against Muslims in Europe" and issued on Monday, details the problem, with a focus on Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland.

..The report said employers have been permitted "to discriminate on the grounds that religious or cultural symbols will jar with clients or colleagues or that a clash exists with a company's corporate image or its 'neutrality.' "Wearing religious and cultural symbols and dress is part of the right of freedom of expression. It is part of the right to freedom of religion or belief -- and these rights must be enjoyed by all faiths equally." Perolini said

..The right to establish places of worship "is being restricted in some European countries, despite state obligations to protect, respect and fulfill this right," Amnesty International said. For example, the Swiss Constitution "has specifically targeted Muslims with the prohibition of the construction of minarets," it said. Muslims in the Catalonian region of Spain must pray outdoors "because existing prayer rooms are too small to accommodate all the worshippers and requests to build mosques are being disputed as incompatible with the respect of Catalan traditions and culture."

It’s healthy to stand up to professional victims - people who, given the chance will turn and stab us in the back. That ‘victim’ thing has run it’s course. How about these people make an attempt to earn our respect rather than ‘scam’ us for it.

Ditto for the ‘black community’ in this country.

Then here’s a helpful hint for the Muslims: STOP TRYING TO BLOW STUFF UP AND KILL PEOPLE.

You’re welcome...

As an European I would like to say that muslims refuse to integrate. muslims come in drove in Europe to claim benefits and have no wish to contribute to the economy.The one already settled in Europe don´t work, but steal and cry descrimination all day long.
muslims are making sure non-muslims leave cities by spitting at people, abusing young non-muslim girls, burning cars,forcing shops to stop selling non-halal meat, alcohol and pork.
muslims insist on wearing their religious attire even in countries were they know full well it is not allowed.
muslims in schools attack teachers who dare mention the shoah.
muslims attack Jews or the people they perceive as Jews without fear of being punished by liberal leaders.
muslims in mosques call Christians and Jews, sons of pigs and apes,no arrest ever made.
muslims during demonstrations call for the death of Israel and Jews, they are never arrested.
muslims during the ramadam spit on the streets and make sureit is at the feet of non-muslims.

Amnesty should stop being a bunch of morons.
Every time I see an amnesty member I stop to chat to him or her and ....tell them to SHOVE the Candle with the barbed wire up their f.....g a..rse.

Crying discrimination has become a very effective vehicle for accumulating and maintaining power and control.

Where is Amnesty when it comes to Christians getting raped and killed in Moslem lands?

The Amnesty bureaucrats like their heads to remain attached to their bodies.

Accordingly, they only bother countries where they will be safe doing so.

These prehistoric barbarians will attempt to get various governments around the world to “protect” them when these very same governments should be on an all out eradication campaign.

There is NOTHING positive these sand monkeys bring to civilization as only death and destruction follow them where ever they show their cancerous selves.

In the USA they have convinced so many gullible people that they are a religion when they are nothing more than a death cult worshiping the son of a swine. If they can hide behind religion they can use our remaining First Amendment to protect themselves.

Notice how our vile President has no problem eliminating our First Amendment protection of political speech with his new powers given to the Secret Service, but then uses that same First Amendment to protect his Mud-slime sand monkeys.

The Kenyan in the White Hut has even declared the War On Terror is over. Gee, I thought it was the Overseas Contingency Operation. This Marxist must be removed from the White House before he hands it over to either Is-Slime or the communists

There are respectable Muslims - just like there’s respectable and dignified blacks. The problem is white liberal elites get their power from Poverty Pimps and radical Muslims. There’s no incentive for them to allow the decent members of minority communities to have power.

>>>The right to establish places of worship "is being restricted in some European countries, despite state obligations to protect, respect and fulfill this right," Amnesty International said. That's right, islamic counties have no such freedoms of other religions to practice their faith. Hense Amnesty International has no clout. Hypocrits of Amnesty

I agree. Former FBI Agent Ali Soufan comes to mind. However the quran and it’s antithetical outlook with regard to anything and everything outside of it makes it an extremly problematical document, and hence an extemely problematical system of thought.

I think though that I should amend my earlier statement of “prejudice” to “antagonism with extreme prejudice”.

So Ammesty is upset that some muslim man might lose a job because of his beard but doesn’t seemed concerned that the same muslim man may beat his own daughter to death because she talked to a man he did not know or approve of......
What a bunch of hypocrites.......

Employ all Muslim men working on machines with rapidly exposed rotating parts and all Muslim Women in outdoor jobs working in the sun.

They will either loose their beards and burquas or the problem will take care of itself.

As do I. The worst they have to deal with in Europe is nothing compared to the government-sanctioned persecution of non-muslims that exists in their home countries.

the problem is the philosophy of Islam. That is evil, just as communism is evil

I think more importantly is the quantity of bad fruit. There are evil Christians, Buddhists, Hindus etc., but the sheer quantity of evil that is produced by islam, over the centuries is incredible

I totally agree with you. There are plenty of nice Muslims - but they're nice in spite of Islamic beliefs. Of all major religions, Islam's the closest to a cult, produces the most evil, creates the least good among it's adherents, and adds almost nothing to the cultures it infects. Also, they're involved in almost every war going on in the world today.
