Here's A Thought?

Blogpal No More Spin has some further reporting on the mystery Imam in this

Why not get the hell out of here then...
Muslim cabbies tell airport they won’t bend in alcohol dispute

For Abdi Mohamed, it’s not a question of whether he’ll carry passengers with alcohol in his cab. The question is whether he’ll get punished for refusing to do so.

“I am Muslim. I’m not going to carry alcohol,” Mohamed, a driver for Bloomington Cab, told a Metropolitan Airports Commission panel that gathered public opinion Tuesday regarding proposed penalties for cabbies who refuse service to passengers carrying alcohol.
Cue the whiners...
Hassan Mohamud, a Muslim imam and adjunct law professor at William Mitchell College of Law, said the Muslim cab drivers are only trying to support their families, both here and in their strife-torn home country, and are being placed in an impossible situation.

“If we pass this (policy) it means cutting off the lifelines of thousands of people,” Mohamud said.
Hard truth time. If they want to live like stone age barbarians they have every right to do so, but not in this country. In fact, much like the economic and politically retarded Mexico, we are under no obligation to assist people who CHOOSE to keep their countries as retarded back waters.

Again, they are more than welcome to do whatever they please. If they really want to live under the wonders of Sharia law? Fine, no sweat off my nose, but go to a Sharia supporting country, then try to make a living, hmmm, it appears those things are mutually exclusive, gosh, I wonder why that might be?

It's a mystery folks, a mystery to deep for this broke down old chef to solve.

And for the slow and intellectually incurious? (Big H? Is that you?) They aren't asking us to "respect" their religion, no, they are asking us to observe their religion, all the difference in the world. And one I find myself under precisely no obligation to even tolerate in the public square. Especially as I find Sharia to be a particularly vicious nasty, brutish parody of religion.

Seriously asshole cabbies, Somalia called, they need you back to burn some girls to death for not buttering their toast on the Prophet approved side.
