Wisconsin: More Muslims reject corporate policy, get terminated

Source: WBAY – More Ariens employees terminated over break policy – h/t Free Republic

An additional four Ariens employees have been terminated for not following break policy, according to a company spokesperson.

In total, 11 employees of the Brillion company have been terminated over break policy and 14 have resigned over the issue.

The workers, all Muslims, say the break policy interferes with prayer.

In January, CEO Dan Ariens told employees the company would be enforcing the policy of two scheduled breaks lasting 10 minutes. The company said some non-Muslim workers had raised concerns about other employees taking unscheduled breaks to pray.  Ariens said the company needed to address the issue to minimize the impact on assembly lines.

In February, The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced it was filing a complaint with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Milwaukee. CAIR says terminated workers should get their jobs back and receive back-pay.

Ariens said he was disappointed in CAIR’s actions and would rather work with his employees directly, not with an outside group.

Twenty-eight Muslim workers have chosen to stay on the job and abide by the break policy, according to a company spokesperson.

Ariens makes outdoor power equipment including snow blowers and lawnmowers.

Milwaukee: Muslim arrested in temple jihad plot, “defending Muslim religion”

Milwaukee resident Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, 23, has been charged with possessing machineguns and a silencer.

According to the criminal complaint, Hamzeh had been under investigation since September 2015.  The investigation revealed that, in October 2015, Hamzeh planned to travel to Jordan, enter the West Bank, and conduct an attack on Israeli soldiers and citizens living in the West Bank.  Hamzeh later abandoned those plans and began to focus on conducting an attack in the United States.

According to the criminal complaint, Hamzeh has engaged in extensive conversations with two confidential sources (referred to here as CS-1 and CS-2).  Those conversations, which were in Arabic, were monitored, recorded, and translated by the FBI beginning in October 2015.

During those recorded conversations, Hamzeh explained that he wanted to commit a domestic act of violence and, earlier this month, he settled on a Masonic temple in Milwaukee as his target.

On January 19, 2016, Hamzeh, CS-1 and CS-2 took a guided tour of the Masonic temple, during which they learned meeting schedules and where people would be located during meetings.  In a recorded conversation after they left the temple, Hamzeh, discussed his plans with CS-1 and CS-2.  In that conversation, Hamzeh reaffirmed his intention to commit an armed attack on the temple and discussed in further detail how they would carry out the attack.

Hamzeh said that they would need two machineguns so that they each would have one (Hamzeh indicated that one CS already had a machinegun), and also said that they would need three silencers:

  • “We want two machineguns, you now have one, so we want two more, and we need three silencers, that’s it.Find out how much all together these will cost, and then we will march.”
  • “We want two, like the machinegun you have. . . . And we need silencers. . . . Three, yes three silencers, and that’s it.”
  • “. . . each one has a weapon, each one has a silencer gun, the operation will be one hundred percent successful.I am telling you, to go without silencer gun, you will be exposed from the beginning.”

Hamzeh also explained to CS1 and CS2 that, when they executed the attack at the temple, one of the three of them would have to stay at the main door while the others went upstairs to kill the people who would be meeting there:

  • “one of us will stay at the door at the entrance and lock the door down, he will be at the main door down, two will get to the lift up, they will enter the room, and spray everyone in the room.The one who is standing downstairs will spray anyone he finds.We will shoot them, kill them and get out.We will walk and walk, after a while, we will be covered as if it is cold, and we’ll take the covers off and dump them in a corner and keep on walking, as if nothing happened, as if everything is normal.But one has to stand on the door, because if no one stood at the door, people will be going in and out, if people came in from outside and found out what is going on, everything is busted.”
  • “As long as the one on the door understands he has bigger responsibility than the others.For your information, he has to take care of everyone around him, the comers and the one that wants to go, he has to annihilate everyone, there is no one left, I mean when we go into a room, we will be killing everyone, that’s it, this is our duty, as for the one at the door, he must have 20/20 eye vision and always alert for all the traffic around him.”
  • “I am telling you, as I was saying, all three of us get in together, one will go, to the one that is staying at the reception . . . . If she was alone, it is okay, if there were two of them, shoot both of them, do not let the blood show, shoot her from the bottom, two or three shots in her stomach and let her sit on the chair and push her to the front, as if she is sleeping, did you understand?Then stay downstairs, the other two will take the lift to the third floor, go directly to the room, open the door, shoot everyone, move fast even avoiding the lift and take the stairs running down. . . . Using the stairs, the third one on the door will notice us coming down, we will go out together.No one sees anything and no one knows anything.We leave, as if there is nothing, no running, no panic, just regular walking.We’ll get three head covers with three holes in them. . . . we’ll get in all three of us together, the minute we get in, we shoot whoever is in front of us, and all have to be eliminated.One stays down and two will go up quickly.
  • “And we will eliminate everyone.”

Hamzeh also explained what his objectives were in committing the attack:

  • “I am telling you, if this hit is executed, it will be known all over the world. . . . Sure, all over the world, all the Mujahedeen will be talking and they will be proud of us. . . such operations will increase in America, when they hear about it.The people will be scared and the operations will increase, and there will be problems all over, because more than one problem took place, and this will be the third problem, this will lead to people clashing with each other.This way we will be igniting it.I mean we are marching at the front of the war.”
  • “They are all Masonic; they are playing with the world like a game, man, and we are like asses, we don’t know what is going on, these are the ones who are fighting, these are the ones that needs to be killed, not the Shi’iat, because these are the ones who are against us, these are the ones who are making living for us like hell.”
  • Thirty is excellent.If I got out, after killing thirty people, I will be happy 100%. . . . 100% happy, because these 30 will terrify the world.”

Hamzeh made plans to purchase machineguns and silencers from two individuals who, unbeknownst to Hamzeh, were undercover FBI agents.  He met with them, along with CS-1 and CS-2, on January 25, 2016.  The undercover agents displayed the weapons and a silencer to Hamzeh, told him that the weapons were capable of automatic fire, and explained to him the functioning of the selector switch that allowed the weapons to fire automatically.  Hamzeh agreed to a price and paid it to the undercover agents, who then handed Hamzeh a bag containing two automatic weapons and a silencer.  Hamzeh carried the bag to the vehicle in which he had traveled to the meeting, and he placed the bag in the trunk of the vehicle.  He then was arrested and has been charged with illegally possessing machineguns.

A criminal affidavit says the man toured a Masonic center in Milwaukee on Jan. 19 and was tape-recorded discussing his plans to attack it in the name of “defending Muslim religion.” The affidavit says he was arrested Monday after buying machine guns and silencers from two undercover FBI employees.

Citizens of the Badger State have been warned of the growing Muslim problem in their state for years.

Wisconsin Manufacturer Won’t Negotiate with Terrorist-linked CAIR

Well played. Every organization threatened by the terrorist groups like CAIR should do the same. Yes, that’s right, the Council on American Relations or CAIR was named a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates.

CAIRdiorama32via: Manufacturer Stands by Policy on Muslim Prayer Breaks – ABC News

An American-Islamic civil liberties group is asking a Wisconsin manufacturer to back away from a policy that doesn’t allow an extra break for prayer for Muslim employees.

Ariens Co., however, said Tuesday that it can handle the matter internally and that it’s not interested in negotiating through the Council for America-Islamic Relations.

CEO Dan Ariens said the prayer breaks were disrupting production at the lawn mower and snow blower manufacturer, which employs about 2,000 people, nearly half of them in Brillion. He said the best solution was to schedule break time and “stay within the policy of two, 10-minute breaks.”

Ariens says it has had longstanding religious accommodations for Muslim workers, including a prayer room. Ariens said the two-break policy isn’t new and that it was discussed during employee orientation. He said none of the workers have been fired and that he also wants to find a resolution that will allow them all to come back to their jobs without hindering production. He said the employees are valuable and would need to be replaced if they left.

Ariens said the company’s position is reasonable and legally sound. He said that if the prayer breaks were only five minutes each — and his supervisors tell him they’re often longer — then it would cost the company about $1 million annually.

Of course, Ariens wouldn’t even be in this position if hadn’t hired Islamic supremacist Muslim refugees rather than American workers.

Wisconsin: Muslim prayer breaks result in declining production, company now has to enforce policy

Two Islamic prayer breaks and an Islamic prayer room are not enough for Muslim invaders. The want sharia law in the U.S. workplace and they want it now.

via Ariens Co. policy enforcement affects Muslim employees (PS: Note the one-sided headline. It affects the non-Muslims too, and by the way, when Muslims take breaks while the entire production line is halted and non-Muslims have to wait around for them to come back – that affects non-Muslims too.)

More than 50 Muslim employees at Ariens Manufacturing must decide by next week if a change that prevents them from praying on the clock is worth losing their jobs over.

The CEO of Brillion-based Ariens, says the company’s break policy is nothing new but that because it was not being enforced up until now, Muslim employees have been able to pray during breaks at their traditional prayer times.

Muslims are required to pray five times a day and the timing of the prayers is linked to seasonal things like sunrise and sunset.

“Anyone who doesn’t pray is not a Muslim,” says Green Bay Masjid Imam Hasan Abdi.

That’s why up until now, 53 Muslim employees at Ariens Manufacturing would leave the production line twice a shift to pray two of the five prayers their faith requires of them daily.

Starting next week, that will change for any Muslim employees who chose to stay at Ariens.

“If I’m on a team of assemblers of ten and two clock out, all ten of them have to stop, not just the two,” says Chairman and CEO of the company, Dan Ariens.

Ariens says a dip in productivity on the production line has prompted the company to start enforcing a 25-year-old break policy.

Employees will still be allowed to use prayer rooms in the plant, but will have to do so during two company scheduled, ten-minute breaks during a shift.

Abdi is skeptical that the affect of prayer breaks on the assembly line, may not be the reason for the new enforcement of breaks.

“I don’t think that’s the main reason why they changed their policy,” says Abdi.

Ariens admits that non-Muslim employees weren’t comfortable with the unscheduled breaks.

“When the team sees that some are getting unscheduled breaks, paid or unpaid, it just doesn’t seem fair to the rest,” says Ariens.

While Abdi says he and his fellow Somali Muslims have not had any trouble adjusting to life in Wisconsin, he hopes more Americans will take time to learn about his faith and how important the specific prayer time is to Islam.

“And we consulted with them to say, ‘hey here’s what we need to do,can this work for your team for your group?’ and the answer when we talked to them was adamantly, ‘yes we can make this work’,” says Ariens.

But, because of the change, the company says only 10 of the 53 Muslim employees plan to stay.

The policy will be enforced starting Monday, Jan. 25th.

More via Ariens to hold news conference on employee prayer break policy

Ariens Company tells Action 2 News they “put a considerable amount of effort into finding a solution that allows for employees of Muslim faith to pray during work hours.”

“We met with members of our Somalian employee group to better understand their needs and consulted with local representatives of Muslim faith,” a spokesperson wrote.

Dan Ariens, President and CEO of Ariens, released this statement:

A letter from Dan Ariens:

I understand that the headline and story featured on WBAY appears to be alarming news about Ariens Company. It is alarming to me as well. Unfortunately this headline does not tell our story very well. As many of you know, my family has operated manufacturing businesses in Northeast Wisconsin for more than 80 years. You also may know that we have only been successful by operating under a set of Core Values. We will: Be Honest, Be Fair, Keep our Commitments, Respect the Individual and Encourage Intellectual Curiosity. We work very hard as a team to accommodate all employees with our vision of Passionate People who Astound our Customers. In our manufacturing plants we work as a team to build the best power equipment product. Like any accommodation, we put a considerable amount of time into finding a solution that would work for both the employees and the company. Our staff is committed to providing a great place to work for all employees and have met with members of our Somalian employee group to better understand their needs. We consulted with local representatives who are of Muslim faith to help provide sustainable solutions. We want to be clear that no one was terminated here. We are asking employees to use two scheduled breaks for religious observation, and are offering designated prayer rooms. Additionally, we are also offering to look for positions on other shifts that might better accommodate prayer obligations. This change affected 53 employees. More than ten of the employees have contacted Ariens Company to say they will return to work under the new policy. And we welcome their return. We continue to be open to any of the employees returning to work under the new policy and I have sent a letter to each of them re-stating that offer. Let me be clear: we respect their faith, we respect the work they have done at Ariens, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not. Headlines do not make a story. If you want more details, please let me know.

It should be noted, like the so-called reported in the video above, terror-linked Islamic group CAIR blatantly lied about Muslims being fired. No Muslims were fired. Not one. But that didn’t stop UAE-listed terrorist group CAIR:


More Blatant Lies by Terror-Named CAIR

Green Bay: Muslim student breaks teacher’s nose after homosexual overture

Diversity and multiculturalism courtesy of Muslim refugees. When Muslims attack gays it’s never a hate crime though. via Green Bay Southwest student charged with punching teacher

A Southwest High School student is charged with a felony after punching a teacher over a remark the teacher says was intended as a joke.

Ridwaan H. Mohamud, 17, is accused of breaking the nose of a teacher by punching him in the face Monday morning at the school.

He is charged as an adult in Brown County Circuit Court with substantial battery and disorderly conduct and could face 3½ years in prison if convicted.

The male teacher had been counseling Mohamud Friday about his getting picked on by someone at the school, and the teacher told him he’d be willing to date him, the criminal complaint says. The teacher said he intended the remark as a joke and as a way to tell Mohamud he wasn’t ugly.

The school’s associate principal, Jeff Vanlannen told police he’d been made aware of the discussion on Friday and assured Mohamud the teacher wasn’t making advances to him, the complaint says.

Mohamud’s mother told school authorities and police that she had tried to talk Mohamud out of being angry over the weekend, the complaint says. Mohamud entered the teacher’s first-hour class Monday, called out his name, then approached and punched him in the face, the complaint says. Witnesses who intervened said the teacher made no effort to defend himself, the complaint says.

Mohamud was released on a signature bond.

Scott Walker says Islamic terrorists harmful to “moderate” Muslims, terror-linked CAIR calls for apology

via Scott Walker says Islamic terrorists harmful to ‘handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam’ : Ct.

Gov. Scott Walker on Friday said radical Islamic terrorists are hurting the “handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam” who don’t share their beliefs.

The comments came in response to a question during a campaign visit in Derry, New Hampshire.

Speaking at a VFW post, Walker said he would work to strengthen the nation’s defense system, restoring cuts implemented by President Barack Obama’s administration.

Walker said a stronger military would help the U.S. fight radical terrorist groups like ISIS. He called for showing a “position of strength,” something he said the current administration isn’t doing.

One attendee replied, “Well, not with an administration that won’t use the words Islamic terrorists.”

“If you’re fighting a war, you’ve gotta identify who the enemy is loud and clear. We’ve said it repeatedly, it’s radical Islamic terrorism,” Walker said. “It is a war not against only America and Israel, it’s a war against Christians, it’s a war against Jews, it’s a war against even the handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam who don’t share the radical beliefs that these radical Islamic terrorists have.”

Do they not share the same beliefs or do they just not act on them?

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil liberties organization, swiftly called for an apology.

“Your progressive voice” newspaper forgot to mention that CAIR has been named a terrorist organization by the UAE, linked to Muslim terrorists by the U.S. government, banned by the FBI, and had many of its leaders jailed or deported for terror crimes.

“These types of inaccurate statements reflect a lack of understanding of Islam and Muslims that is, frankly, not presidential,” said CAIR government affairs manager Robert McCaw. “If Mr. Walker believes only a ‘handful’ of Muslims are moderate or reasonable, then he is ignoring the very clear reality that violent extremists murder more Muslims than they do people of any other faith.”

Robert McCaw? Government affairs manager. CAIR should be banned in the U.S.

The Walker campaign responded by saying the majority of Muslims are hurt by radical Islamic terrorists.

“The Governor knows that the majority of ISIS’s victims are Muslims. Muslims who want to live in peace – the majority of Muslims – are the first target of radical Islamic terrorists,” said Walker spokeswoman AshLee Strong. “Under the Obama-Clinton foreign policy doctrine, we’ve been abandoning our traditional Muslim allies in the Middle East and allowing ISIS, al Qaeda, and Iran to fill the void.”

While Walker did identify the targets of jihad-waging Muslims, it’s not clear if he is ready to do anything different than Clinton, Bush or Obama. And this is a recipe for disaster and the end of America as we know it.

How does Walker identify “reasonable, moderate followers of Islam” versus unreasonable, immoderate/extreme followers of Islam.

All candidates should be on the record: Would you call for an immediate halt to immigration from majority Muslim nations? It’s a yes or no question.

If you haven’t voted in our presidential poll be sure to do so. To date, Scott Walker has less than 1% of the vote.

Wisconsin: Man Who Murdered 3 Christians Was a Convert to Islam

via Shoebat.com.

A man in Wisconsin, named Sergio Valencia del Toro, murdered three Christians, injured another person and then committed suicide. Well, what no one is saying is that this man was a Muslim who incorporated Islam with Satanism. I did a whole video on this:

According to the report:

Police found journals of Arabic writings in Valencia del Toro’s home, Arabic tattoos on his body and various Islamic textbooks in a storage unit that he rented. The findings led police to question whether Valencia del Toro had any ties to Islamic extremists. His victims — Adam Bentdahl of Appleton, and Jonathan, Olivia and Erin Stoffel of Neenah — were Christians.

The FBI analyzed the information, plus Valencia del Toro’s computer and smartphone records, but found no connection to Islamic radicalism.

The FBI and the majority of the media is not focusing, or really they are disregarding the Islamic connection in these murders.

He met his girlfriend shortly after she returned from Kyrgyzstan.

Like the NYPD killer, he was a fan of:

sheikh Yusuf Estes, who is not only neck deep in the Muslim Da’wa movement (the call to convert westerners to Islam) but Estes meets with both ISIS and Hamas financiers…
