‘what are you going to do Eid al-Fitr weekend?’

If you work for Tyson Food, you will not have to make a decision as to what you will do this ‘Labor Day weekend’, but “what are you going to do this Eid al-Fitr weekend”?

Tyson Foods warms up to Islam-OneNewsNow

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Workers at the Tyson Foods poultry processing plant in Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day but will instead be given the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr as a holiday.

According to a news release from the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, a new 5-year contract at the plant included the change to accommodate the hundreds of Somali Muslims who work at the plant .

Eid al-Fitr — which falls on Oct. 1 this year — marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting…

Religious Double Standards

We see Tyson Foods bending over backwards to make Somali Muslims feel right at home and then for you to follow the link to see what the Somali Muslims are doing to Christians in Somali…. https://bromalachi.wordpress.com/2008/08/03/the-faith-of-a-young-man-and-worthy-of-recognition/.

The day given honor in place of Labor Day, ‘Eid al Fitr may sound familiar..It is the day that ends the holy week of Ramadan the month of fasting. Sometimes the celebration gets a little violent  “A Gift… to celebrate Idul Fitri”… you can read more about it.

The Shelbyville Times-Gazette newspaper quotes union spokesman Randy Hadley as saying the negotiating team felt this change was “extremely crucial, since this holiday is as important to Muslims as Christmas is to Christians.”

The newspaper also quotes the union as saying two prayer rooms have been created at the Shelbyville Tyson Foods’ plant ” to allow Muslim workers to pray twice a day and return to work without leaving the plant.”

Wonder if American Christians going to Somali would receive the same recompense for their faith…. I don’t think so. Ask Hussein, the 28-year-old victim, had converted from the Muslim faith to Christianity, oh you can’t…. I guess that answers any questions we might have concerning the religious double standards permeating the Muslim world.

Even our Muslim friends have no trouble seeing the double standard, or do they?
