The Hamas terror group CAIR has targeted another great American company for Islamic lawfare on behalf of Muslim Somali migrants who walked off the job because the very generous policy of Muslim prayer times wasn’t good enough. They wanted to stop the line for Muslim prayer times. Ariens Co. gives its Muslim worker two 10-minute breaks per work shift for Muslim prayer. Somali Muslims at the company walked off their jobs, demanding that Ariens allow Muslims to leave their work station whenever they want.

Now Hamas-CAIR is suing saying the Muslims were “coerced” into walking out. This is typical of Muslim victimhood strategy — attack, then claim victim status. Now that CAIR’s de facto legal arm, Obama’s DoJ, is not their pocket, success is not assured, but even so, it is a terrible burden on American companies to have to underwrite these enormous costs against a terror-tied org massively funded by foreign countries and liberal American  dupes.

All the plaintiffs are Somali Muslims.

Back in January 2016, I wrote that Ariens, an American equipment company which has a long history manufacturing snow blowers, lawn tractors, and zero-turn lawn mowers for commercial and high-end consumer markets, was under siege by Islamic supremacists who were making impossible Islamic demands on the company.

Muslims employed by Ariens are allowed to leave the production line twice a shift to pray two of the five prayers their faith requires of them daily. They prayed five minutes at a time, designating their specific duties to colleagues. Arien is “asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks in designated prayer rooms. Our manufacturing environment does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production.” Not good enough for Muslim workers. They want to stop the line.

Mind you, these Muslim workers don’t have to pray at those times. They can make up the missed prayers later. They don’t stop production lines in Iran and other Muslim countries for prayer. But here in the West, it is a way to impose Islam on the workplace, on the secular marketplace — and on their co-workers...
