(CNN) -- 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.
Amnesty International raised the issue, as it has done before, of restrictions "on the establishment of places of worship and prohibitions on full-face veils."
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.

Now if that ain't the funniest things I have heard lately. Was AI talking about the restriction put on Christians or other faiths in Moslem countries? Were they protesting Christians being murdered in Moslem countries? How about churches being burned in Moslem countries?
I forget where AI was protesting?
Maybe Obama can help them eat their way out of it?
Didn’t most of Europe’s leaders state flat-out that “multiculturalism has failed” and this is due to Muslims not assimilating? Don’t we know about the packs of Muslim boys/men that harass Western-looking folks in the cities of Europe?
You are right.
Historically speaking ... it’s the Muslims that tend to start the Genocides ...
Why they are considered ‘favored’ immigrants is quite beyond my understanding. As a country, I would want the most educated and the group most likely to adobt and blend with my culture and population. Islamic people are usually the LEAST educated, do not blend with the population and have been shown to be the most disrruptive, abusive and criminal element you could chose.
Minnesota grants a state-tax free period of 7 years to immigants, and has opted to pick the Sommali as the group of choice. If you or I open a business, we have to pay taxes as part of our operating expenses. But, if someone opens up next door and is an immigrant, they do not have to pay the taxes we (as Americans) must pay.
Yet, in the Libtard mind - blatant discrimination is somehow ‘fair’ and ‘good’.
Whatever building muslim savages blow up next I hope that there’s a healthy contingency of Amnesty International a-holes present when it goes down!
The peaceful way for Europe to handle the situation is to end immigration from Muslim countries and begin mass deportations of Muslims back to their nations of origin.
Here’s a dime-—call someone who cares.
The Muzzies could always go to a friendlier place, like Saudi Arabia, “Palestine”,Iran or Pakistan.
Aw too bad, so sad.
Sympathy can be found in the dictionary between Shiite and syphilis.
Rome fell for many reasons, but immigration was surely one of them. The schoolbook notion of "Barbarian Invasions" makes many people think of armies sweeping across Europe, defeating Roman soldiers. Sure, there was some of that. But mostly these were migrations of entire peoples.
Peaceful Germans moving into France were not always seen as a bad thing. Give them farms, and they won't start trouble. They want to join the army? Great! Rome needs soldiers. They are gaining positions of political power? And they don't speak Latin? And they worship strange gods? And they don't understand why the emperor isn't a German?
Well ... the social contract gets mighty frail when the outsiders just won't assimilate and then start to think that the host society needs to start making changes.
History will look back at our times and it will classify this as a time of Migration and Invasion. Mexicans into the US, Muslims into Europe, Chinese into Africa ...
All the old concepts of national borders are breaking down. This facilitates One World Government and it works against the idea of national self-determination and personal freedom.
I’m other news:
It was learned that Moslems eat dog cutting the meat on the bias and occasionally enjoy an afternoon snack of dogged ears....
Interesting choice of verbiage...
May the fleas of ten thousand camels infest Amnesty International, permanently.
Good point. If Moslems are biased against dogs, isn’t it only fair that they should be dogged by bias?
Where the hell does he think he is...the USA?
Haven’t seen too many Amnesty reports decrying the persecution, oppression and murder of Christians and other “infidels” in Muslim countries.
