CAIR Pushes ‘Hijab Friendly’ Policy in American Prisons

Photo Credit: Daily Caller The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is working to make American prisons more “hijab-friendly,” according to a report from Al Arabiya.

“I’m working on several pending cases in different states… and I’m in touch with an attorney for the Department of Justice’s Office of Civil Rights,” Nadhira al-Khalili, legal counsel for CAIR, told the Saudi-owned news outlet.

The goal for CAIR is to make the hijab a permissible, official staple of Muslim women’s attire, including for photos, in prisons nationwide.

Al Arabiya reports that Novi, Mich. has already agreed to allow Muslim women to cover their heads during detainment.

    Prison is not the place to be ordering religious rights. Muslims are trained in the prison setting, and it should be outlawed in this christian nation. . .

    We need to follow Japan and China on refugees and Muslims, no bibles, no jobs, no mosque, can’t own a business, no Muslim laws.

    We should use the same laws that Mexico uses for illegals in their country and apply them here for the Mexican and other foreign countries.

    I have been explaining to our church, our government doesn’t have a clue who is coming into our country by using agencies for Refugees. They should have no rights in our country. Obama is a Muslim and he said “I will side with the Muslims”.

    Each state needs to stop Obama from telling them “not” to use the laws we already are on a bill. Illegals in this country with our documents “is” illegal.

    Tired of our insane catering to prisoners. They made their choice when they decided to break our laws, let them live with the consequences. If these women like to wear a hijab, let them stay away from a criminal life. That seems tb the logical answer to these idiot “requests.” Prison is not a country club with privileges. Next it will be special meals and foot-baths.

    being a hamas, linked group, it is an “ikhwani”, organization, moslem brotherhood, franchise that shows incredible recruiting abilities, in the prisons it administers it has infiltrated, like all where their presence is, the hijab, would provide instant identification, for the “protection” afforded, to converts, who are in the real sense at first, seeking a defense against the threats, that are common to the enviroment, they enjoyed, until, exposure to the real bad guy, gal, became their nightmare, prison, is punishment for your actions, in the outside world but most of the toughest individuals, in their make believe “gangsta” existence, are no match for the real deal, these wannabes are unable to hold up to their imaginary world, in the reality of criminal life without whatever their enforcement of criminality they enjoyed, with the flash of their “nine” yo, so when in the surroundings of captive availability, for sex, sport, or plain miserable, like they did to people in the outside, conversion, is no issue, and without the integrity of a real criminal, allah, and jihad, are the best case scenario, the weakness of their character, makes the joining into another gang, a perfectly normal scenario, and with religiosity, as the ultimate defense, it is profitable, and healthy, to become a jihadi, with freedom of religion, it legalizes any doubt of choice, this along with the very real “connection” to organized narco-terrorism, their success is guaranteed and easily monitored, when and if, they are released back into the “civilian” criminal world, this group, was essential in the perception, that response to the 9-11-01, attack, was no more than a “crusade”, a recruiting station, with a “captive” audience in more ways than one. a clear and present danger.
