Somali Islamists Score Big In Court, Pocket Cash And Force Shari'a Compliance On Gold'n Plump Meat Packing House
By WILLIAM MAYER and BEILA RABINOWITZ
April 2, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Radical Muslim Somalis hit the jackpot last week when 128 of them were awarded a $215,000 settlement for alleged religious discrimination by St. Cloud, Minnesota meat packer Gold'n Plump.
The consent decree, issued by U.S. Magistrate Jeanne Graham also forced Gold'n Plump into Shari'a compliance, setting aside a paid portion of each work day for Islamic prayer.
In a related case, a local labor contractor, the Work Connection, will have to pay 28 of the Somalis $150,000 for actions taken as a result of the Muslims refusal to sign a form stating that if referred to Gold'n Plump they would not refuse to handle pork.
As these writers have noted in numerous pieces, since their arrival the Somali refugees have displayed a remarkable penchant for stirring up labor unrest amidst charges of religious discrimination:
"In numerous examples [all of which these authors have written about, see Ingrate Somali Muslim Workers On Rampage - Again - This Time At Colorado Meat Packer, JBS Swift, Creeping Shari'a Turned Back - Tyson Reinstates Labor Day, Shari'a Comes To Shelbyville Tennessee, Are Minneapolis Taxi Fares Going To Support Al-Qaeda?, Muslim Taxi Drivers At Minneapolis International Airport Subjecting Fares To Shari'a] after finding work, these Somali refugees have demanded from their employers the "right" to conduct elaborate Muslim prayer rituals [and other elements of Shari'a] regardless of the cost to their employers or the harm such activity might have in a production environment. In many cases what seem to be good will efforts by these employers to address their Muslim worker's concerns have seemingly fallen on deaf ears."[source, http://www.pipelinenews.org/2008/Federal-Refugee-Program-Involved-In-Forcing-U-S-Employers.html, Federal Refugee Program Involved In Forcing U.S. Employers Into Shari'a Compliance
All of these cases have a point of commonality in that the Somalis were brought to the United States under a little known federal program designed to aid some of the world's most needy. The program - authorized by Congress - is administered by the State Department's Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration. It facilitates fast track access to permanent resident status for certain groups designated as political refugees.
The legislation was originally intended to set up a methodology for accommodating the Vietnamese "boat people," who left Southeast Asia after the fall of Vietnam to the communists, understandably fearful of political retribution.
The program has been expanded to include other groups often at the insistence of influential Congressmen. Among these are refugees from the strife-torn African country of Somalia.
Since their arrival here the Somali's have distinguished themselves by hooking up with the Hamas friendly CAIR and other domestic stealth jihadist groups to the detriment of Western norms. http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=goldenid=4.2.09%2Ehtm
