Muslim Flight Attendant Says She Was Suspended for Refusing to Serve Alcohol

Are Muslims a good fit for the West?

If any minority, including Jews, want to live in Western lands, they have to adapt to Western mores. No healthy country should bend to its minorities.

Chaim Amalek writes: “Wonderful! Now we need to find a Muslim clerk who refuses to issue a marriage license to a gay couple, and a Muslim baker who refuses to bake a wedding case for two men.”

REPORT: A Muslim flight attendant says she was suspended from her job because she refused to serve alcohol to a passenger due to her religious beliefs.

Charee Stanley, a flight attendant with ExpressJet, filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Detroit last week, CNN reports. Stanley said the airline’s management was aware of her religious beliefs and that she had arranged with another flight attendant to handle passenger requests for alcohol. (Muslims are barred from consuming alcohol.)

But Stanley said in the complaint that she was placed on a 12-month unpaid leave on Aug. 2 after another flight attendant complained that Stanley wasn’t fulfilling her duties. The complaint also mentioned that Stanley possessed a book of “foreign writings” and wore a headscarf.

Lena Masri, an attorney representing Stanley on behalf of the Detroit chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the complaint had anti-Islamic overtones and that Stanley had received approval from airline management to not serve alcohol.
