(RNS) More companies are making efforts to accommodate the religious needs of their Muslim workers. But some businesses are going the extra mile to host events that celebrate the monthlong fast.

    “Each year, said Alhart, the event is organized around a theme that is core to GE.”

    Yes . . . PLEASE DON’T KILL US.

    GE is brilliant in trying to appease the Islamic community worldwide. Let’s face it, this is a corporate tactic for economic success worldwide. Like a Christmas party held by corporate capitalists.

    It will ultimately fail, as Islam has shown since its inception. Unless of course all convert ti Islam or die. Then again, GE may continue, but as an “Islamic” company.

    I wish that my perspective was more positive, but Islam is not practiced, nor is it allowable, through tolerance OF diversity. But it is nice to see GE at least trying to get along. You can’t help but pity them.

  • Yes, these companies bend over backwards to accommodate those who will not tolerate us, Islamists because they are terrified of being sued.

    If these companies had solid HR management policies that spelled out how to manage Islam in their places of employment, they would not have to kiss ass like they do. The guideline is called ISLAM IN THE WORKPLACE, and it takes one-sided Islamist guidelines telling American companies how to kiss Moslem asses, and provides solid guidelines that companies can employ to stop Moslem harassment.

    Is there a nationwide shortage of thorazine this week?

    1. Equating American muslims with terrorists and Islamicists living in dictatorial crapholes is disgustingly inappropriate.

    2. Muslims have disproportionately high presence in I-T and engineering fields. Areas also known for coddling their talent. So this is not surprising.

    3. Some dillholes get annoyed when any religion besides their own is acknowledged in some way. Its what happens when you harbor delusions of privilege over all others.

    4. We already have well worn methods on how to handle minority religious groups in the workplace from experiences with orthodox Jews and Hindus. This is no different. People should stop being such whinybabies.

    5. Anyone who feels like responding to me saying , “But Islam is evil” can go p1ss off. This is America, we don’t ban religion or discriminate on the basis of religious belief. If such arguments were worth hearing, atheists would have cause to arrest all believers. 🙂
