More sharia law demands. via The Arab American News – Arab American girl demands ban for man who racially insulted her at Dearborn library. h/t LUTBOI
DEARBORN — A young Arab American woman and her family are demanding that Dearborn’s Henry Ford Centennial Library temporarily ban a middle-aged man who directed racial insults toward the girl at the library last month.
Alia Sareini, 17, said an older white man told her, “Your heritage is all about terrorism” while she was heading to the library’s second floor on Jan. 13.
Sareini was wearing a t-shirt containing Che Guevara’s portrait. The man asked her if she knew who Guevara was. “He is a revolutionary,” she replied. He responded by saying that Guevara was a terrorist. The conversation escalated, ending in the man insulting the 17 year-old’s racial background after telling her that she should learn more about history.
There’s a glaring gap in the article about the “racial” comment.
Sareini said the status of historical figures is “subjective.” She added that she felt insulted and disrespected by the man’s remarks, which she described as “verbal abuse.”
Someone should ask Sareini her opinion on Hitler.
She said she demands that he receive a temporary ban from the library, “so he knows that what he did is wrong.”
Sareini alerted a security guard about the altercation shortly after the incident, but the man had left. Police came to the scene after the arrival of Sareini’s mother, Samia Hamid-Sareini, who is the field director at the Arab-American Civil Rights League (ACRL).
Mom interned for Muslim politician who opposed bill banning sharia law.
“The security personnel reassured us that he will be banned from the library for some time once he is identified,” said Samia. However, the man returned to the library and no actions were taken against him, as he was not found to be in violation of any law or the library’s code of conduct.
Sounds like the cops at the Dearborn
sharia Arab festival who disregard the Constitution and apply sharia law instead.
“That’s not right,” said Samia. “We know what he did does not constitute a hate crime. We never asked for him to be charged. But the library is taking the matter very lightly. It is not freedom of speech when you verbally abuse others at a public library. We demanded that he gets banned from the library for 30 days to send him a message that this behavior will not be tolerated.”
Samia added that she also voiced her demands to the mayor’s office to no avail.
She said her daughter was the victim in the incident. “My daughter is not confrontational. She is not a troublemaker,” she stated. “She was in the library to work on a school project.”
Maryanne Bartles, the director of the Centennial Library, said she took the issue seriously and contacted the police after the man was seen at the library a few days after the incident. According to Bartles, the police chief was made aware of the situation and a detective spoke to the man, who was “apologetic.”
“We turned the matter over to the police. The man was not charged with any crime, and he did not violate our code of conduct,” Bartles said. “We cannot ban somebody when no crime was committed.” The library director added that she does not “condone” the man’s comments, describing them as “unfortunate.”
She said the man’s remarks would not be considered harassment. “By definition, harassment has to be repeated,” she explained. “It was not a prolonged or repeated incident. He did not follow the young woman. Their conversation lasted for two or three minutes. Then, he continued and exited the building. Nothing escalated to the word ‘harassment.’ It was rude, but it didn’t escalate to that point.”
Many people find t-shirts of infamous killer Che Guevara more than rude.
Bartles said banning a person from a public building is a serious matter that cannot be taken lightly. “We don’t have the authority to ban him,” she stated. “He didn’t break any rule.”
The library director added that she offered to have the man directly apologize to Alia Sareini and her mother, but that did not want to come in contact with him.
When asked what measures can be taken to prevent similar events from happening in the future, Bartles said she cannot control what people say or do.
The first and foremost measure would be for Muslims to stop waging jihad against non-Muslims. A hundred or so years without Muslim terrorism would be quite the preventative measure.
However, she highlighted the library’s efforts to promote diversity in Dearborn, including a reading series on Islam, acquiring Arabic books and programs to help English learners.
Taxpayer funded dhimmitude.
Last week a Muslim demanded the Dearborn city council initiate sharia patrols and now the library, police and mayor are being asked to enforce sharia speech restrictions.
What should be banned is immigration from Muslim countries. Before it is too late.
