Corporate America is Allowing Sharia to Creep In

Muslims make up only one percent of the population, but file 40% of workplace discrimination complaints.

Islamic terror attacks have taken the world by storm the last several months.  From Orlando and Istanbul, to Karrada and Nice, these and many other attacks have made fearful citizens eager to avoid becoming a target of Muslim radicals.  Instead of seeing the need to get tough with jihadism, some individuals see it as a time to make frightened concessions to the Muslim community.  These individuals tend to blame the political environment and the rhetoric of people like Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for the alleged hostility from Muslims.  Carol Hymowitz and Jeff Green wrote an article for Bloomberg about corporate America’s response titled The Rise of Muslim-Friendly Workplaces in Corporate America.  Even though the authors say the motivations for the more Muslim-friendly working environment are principled, they allude to the pragmatism that undergirds much of the business world.

Even outside of fear of drawing an Islamist attack, avoiding conflict with Muslim employees affects both the company’s ‘inclusive’ image, and its liability to lawsuits by activist groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  When special interest activist groups put pressure on businesses to give into their demands businesses often (depending on the issue/s) concede rather than face bad publicity. Businesses placating to Muslim demands is one of the objectives of the Hamas-affiliated CAIR. Masquerading as a civil liberties organization for Muslims, CAIR, as mentioned in the video, pressures businesses into accommodating the most trivial of Muslim practices advocated for in sharia law.

For example, defending Muslim taxi drivers that refuse service to individuals with seeing-eye dogs because dog saliva is considered unclean or impure in Islam. In addition, dogs get blamed for repelling angels, annulling prayers, and other stigmas that are inherent in Islamic texts, such as:

Narrated Abu Talha: The Prophet said, “Angels do not enter a house witch [sic] has either a dog or a picture in it.” –Sahih Bukhari 4.54.539

Narrated ‘Aisha: The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, “You have made us (i.e. women) dogs. I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away. for I disliked to face him.” –Sahih Bukhari 1.9.490

The authors in the Bloomberg article reveal information that shows the strength of Muslim activism in trying to transform America through litigation – especially that of the workplace to become more sharia compliant.  The Bloomberg article states:

While people who practice Islam make up only about 1 percent of the U.S. population, some 40 percent of religion-based workplace complaints filed with the U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission last year were related to Muslims. The agency has pursued a wide range of disputes, including whether Muslims can be fired for refusing to handle pork or alcohol at work. In many instances, the courts have said they cannot.

It’s shocking that such a small fraction of the U.S. population are exerting so outsized an influence.  What should businesses do – cater to Muslim religious demands in order to avoid complaints?  The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) states, “An employer does not have to accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs or practices if doing so would cause undue hardship to the employer.”  Furthermore, trying to pacify sharia compliant Muslims is useless, since sharia is an all-encompassing ideology that dictates not just clothing and diet but includes rules for speech, prayer, banking, commerce, etc. The Bloomberg article gives a short list of how some companies are furthering this gradual sharia agenda:

JPMorgan Chase & Co. provides transportation to mosques, and other places of worship, for employees in offices not big enough to have prayer rooms. Alcohol wasn’t served at a recent party at a New York architecture firm because a new staff member who’s [sic] Muslim wouldn’t feel comfortable attending if it were, according to the office manager, asking not to be named because he’s not authorized to speak publicly about the firm. At Accenture Plc, the corporate calendar is organized to prevent events from conflicting with Muslim holidays, as well as those of other faiths.

In addition, “[o]ne goal of the Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield Q&A session in Newark last year was to dispel concerns that Islam is a dangerous faith[.]” Since, when did it become the job of a health insurance network to advocate for Islamic apologetics?  Is that not the job of clerics and believers of the faith?  For that matter, when did employers become a free taxi service to the local “place of worship”?

We have seen accommodations for Muslim employees played out in businesses such as prayer rooms, prayer breaks, reassignments when faced with pork and alcohol products, permitting Islamic clothing and facial hair, and in many other areas. Some U.S. companies are willing to go to outstanding lengths to appease one percent of the U.S. population because some Muslim activists shout the loudest. Corporate America needs to say “No!” to more sharia.

  1. “For example, defending Muslim taxi drivers that refuse service to individuals with seeing-eye dogs because dog saliva is considered unclean or impure in Islam. In addition, dogs get blamed for repelling angels, annulling prayers, and other stigmas that are inherent in Islamic texts, such as:

    It is hard to imagine anyone in the 21st century having such pre-medieval ideas, the most outrageous kinds of superstitious nonsense. I do hope this is something Trump et al addresses in the upcoming presidency. People in this nation do not meekly submit to fervent beliefs of Quakers or Amish, whose beliefs are for the most part, are innocuous and the kind that does not inconvenience others. There is supposed to be a clear separation of religion and state, it is a primary tenet of our democratic republic.

    A tiny percentage of the population should not be able to insist on altering work places environments. Personally, I think the whole ‘happy holidays’ nonsense goes much too far. Do we prohibit Jews from their Happy Hanukkah? Why shouldn’t Christians (or anyone who enjoys it) be able to unashamedly say ‘Merry Christmas’. Muslims can have their beliefs and practice them in their mosques, certainly the rest of us do not have to kowtow to religious beliefs which are often bizarre, antiquated and as we have seen with jihad, completely incompatible with a free society.

    It is clear that Muslims intent is to alter the laws and very structure of the democracies where they have come to live. I agree with this author of this article, we must say ‘no!’


  2. This simply makes me see red, I am having difficulty in curtailing my anger. Frankly Muhammad was a madman, pedophile, killer, rapist etc etc. It is time the world woke up to this and the fact that important and influential Banker’s like JPM observe this crap is beyond my comprehension. Ever since I was a kid, old Churchill had just died it was bred into me by my extremely wise adult movers and shakers MOHAMMADISM & ISHMAELI’s were somewhere between desert nomads and people who followed anarchane and Satanic ideology. What is wrong with today’s uneducated generation?


    • @ Ericka, I found this quote for you and interesting article confirming that Churchill did indeed write these words, confirmed by The Churchill Centre, though they were dropped in a subsequent edition of the book.

      ‘How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

      A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

      Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.’


  3. Trust me all Arab Americans are included in those statistics. But the majority of Arab Americans were not Muslims during Bush administration.


  4. This statistic about 40% of workplace complaints being lodged by such a small percentage of our population, that is Muslim ‘Americans’, makes me wonder what will happen when their percentage rises from now close to 2% of our population to, for example, 8%? (and hopefully that high a percentage never occurs). It’s obvious that they are doing what they can to use our own system of government against us. I hope there is a court case settled which is agreeable to the idea that businesses cannot and should not be obligated to honor all religious convictions and ceremony even while an employee is at his work.

    There are some things in Wicca that I personally like, a sense of connection to nature, but simply because some Wiccans may want to hug a tree does not mean that a tree hugging ceremony need be honored at a person’s workplace. Or what of a fictitious tribe of people who each day at noon salute the sun for five minutes, and demand that this be a part of their everyday work schedule. Or some Christians may want to hold the cross of Christ and walk around the office space for ten minutes each workday, with the cross held high? If Muslims want to work, they need to conform to what the employer wishes, and also likely the majority of employees.


  5. We must stand against Sharia law. Companies do not adhere to other employees beliefs or ceremonial convictions. I would not work for a company who favored the demands of sharia law. I know of no company that has a chapel or prayer room for Christians or other religions, although it would be nice. Our country will rue the day that they started bending to the demands of Sharia.


  6. EVERYTHING and the ONLY thing one needs to know about the Muslim religion/culture in two sentences:

    “In every country where Muslims are in the MINORITY they are concerned with the democratic ‘rule of law’ and minority rights.
    In every country where Muslims are in the MAJORITY there is no democratic ‘rule of law’ nor minority rights.”

    I challenge ANYONE to show a country where this is not true….ANYONE !
