Bear in mind that Costco was completely reasonable. The Muslim cashier refused to check out people with alcohol and pork, and so they transferred him to another position. That should have been sufficient. But he is suing. Apparently he wants Costco two have to check-out lines, one for Muslims and one for kaffirs.
These demands for special accommodation are everywhere. Back in 2011, I reported that Hertz had was forced to suspend 35 Muslim workers because they were abusing their extra special “prayer break times” and refusing to clock out when praying. There was no way of knowing when their Muslim workers returned from their lengthy prayer breaks — five times a day. Muslim workers officially filed a lawsuit against Hertz.
This is exactly the pattern that I meticulously document in my must-read primer, Stop the Islamization of America.
Demands for accommodation result in ….more demands. Take for example, the Heinz company. Heinz has bent over backwards to accommodate these Muslim workers: they have prayer rooms, prayer times, etc. They just don’t want them leaving work to pray outside of scheduled break times. Mind you, they could easily pray before or after work, but no. This imposes Islam on everyone else. Now Muslim workers are suing Heinz, demanding to be allowed to say prayers in the workplace at the time of day specified by their religion.
You’ll notice that big companies are always targeted. Costco and Hertz, as well as Heinz, Target, Wal-Mart, Disney, etc. Why? To set precedents.
“Muslim Costco employee refuses to touch pork; sues after getting transferred to different department,” by Carmine Sabia, BizPac Review, March 2, 2015:
A Muslim former employee has filed a lawsuit against Costco accusing the the wholesale giant of discriminating against him because he refused to handle pork or alcohol products.
The man, Jean Camara, told ABC 7 New York that he was moved from cashier’s assistant to gathering carts outside when he informed his employers that he couldn’t work with pork or alcohol due to his religious beliefs.
“Just because you have a different belief, that doesn’t give anybody the right to treat you different,” Camara said.
“We all share different beliefs so we all should be treated equally no matter what belief we have,” he added.
According to Camara, his superiors at the Brooklyn Costco never told him why he was reassigned — although it’s strange that he couldn’t figure that out on his own after complaining he couldn’t handle certain products.
He said he asked his bosses if he could work in the electronics department but his request was denied.
Camara filed a human rights complaint against the company and was fired 16 days later for “insubordinate conduct,” according to ABC 7.
“I think that as the case progresses in the trial we are in now, I think the facts are going to come out and they’re going to speak for themselves,” his attorney, Chauncey Henry, said.
“It’s not OK to discriminate against someone for their religion. It isn’t OK. It isn’t OK to treat them differently from others because of what they believe in,” Henry added.
“I think that everyone is entitled to the same treatment. I think that’s what this case is about.”
