The Grievance Mongers Waging The Soft Jihad


Muslims filed an escalating number of employment discrimination claims after the Sep 11 attacks, claiming a backlash against them in the USA. However, Jeffrey Breinholt of the International Assessment and Strategy Center reveals that such claims are bogus in his paper, "Muslim Employment Discrimination: A Legal Examination."

The Saudi-funded Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an Islamist organization waging the soft jihad in America while posing as a civil rights organization, claimed 277 incidents of discrimination in 2005 and 210 in 2006. However, when Breinholt investigated the judicial opinions in all 329 federal and state cases where Muslim employees claimed workplace discrimination, he found that most were dismissed for lack of legal merit, 196. Only twelve were found to be true. That's 4%, one in twenty-five.

Obviously, Muslims are lying in most of the discrimination cases they bring to court. Breinholt discusses why:

"Why would Islamic terrorist attacks result in more claims of employment discrimination against Muslims? There are a number of possible theories, which neatly fall along a continuum of two diametrically opposed views.

"One on end is what I will refer to as the "Innocent Muslim Bystander" theory: Islamic terrorist attacks against the U.S. increase discrimination against innocent Muslim employees here, who are distrusted in the workplace and wrongly punished for of the actions of a few radicals who claim to act in the name of their religion. This theory is the narrative advanced by such groups as the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Muslim civil rights organization.

"On the other end of the continuum is what I will call the "Political Islam" theory, which is the narrative pushed by a number of prominent commentators: Muslims in the U.S. saw the steady increase in attacks that culminated in 9/11 as an opportunity to press their advantage and achieve greater Islamicization of American workplaces, even while disavowing violent jihad, and their employment discrimination push is one aspect of such effort. I chose the name "Political Islam" because it reflects the use of discrimination laws as part of power politics."

Heidianne, baby,

Point away, my dear! I'm flattered that two human beings actually discuss my blog. I never considered that a possibility. Whatever I can do to help you get your blog on, baby, I'm for it.
