Greeley again: threats of more violence, CAIR arrives

As we reported yesterday the fired Somali workers from the Swift meatpacking plant in Greeley were laying low because of 9/11, obviously instructed by their community organizers that doing otherwise would be a tad bit inflammatory.    Muslims getting too demanding on the anniversary of the day Islamic terrorists inflicted such destruction on Americans, just wouldn’t win them much support.

However, someone was busy stirring the pot.   Threatening fliers were left on cafeteria tables for workers to find.   From the Greeley Tribune today thanks to Blulitespecial:

The weeklong dispute between the Muslim workers at JBS Swift flared Wednesday with about 100 workers receiving termination notices when they reported to the plant in mid-afternoon for the late shift. The dispute took another nasty turn on Thursday as someone left threatening pictures on the tables in the Swift cafeteria. The pictures appeared to be from a protest and feature people holding signs that say things like “Behead those who insult Islam.”

Tamara Smid, a JBS Swift spokeswoman, told Tribune media partner FOX 31 that inappropriate materials were found at the plant and Swift was investigating to see where they came from. The official would not say exactly what the inappropriate materials were.

And, of course, here comes CAIR:

Ibrahim Hooper is a spokesman for the D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. His organization handles hundreds of similar cases a year. He told the Associated Press he’s never seen a conflict escalate to the point it has at the JBS Swift & Co. meatpacking plant in Greeley, where several dozen workers were fired Wednesday.

“Usually in these cases we’re able to come to an amicable solution,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a CAIR spokesman.

Hooper said CAIR attorneys in Chicago are now involved as mediators, and may pursue legal action if religious accommodations are denied. But they’re hoping it doesn’t get to that point.

No, of course it doesn’t usually get this far with a huge splash in the media and the blogosphere, because CAIR (and recently their sidekicks at the EEOC) usually gets in early and intimidates the company involved.  Way to go Swift!  Don’t let them intimidate you! 

American workers!  Continue to stand up for your rights against religious extremists’ demands in the workplace!  Don’t let them silence you with threats such as these fliers.  By refusing intimidation, you too are fighting the war on terror!    And, in light of Greeley’s historic involvement in the birth of radical Islam, it’s fitting this frontline fight should be in this Colorado city.

Go here to see how many Somalis the State Department has resettled in the United States in the last 25 years.

One final thought:  Has anyone thought to ask the Somali community organizers (the ones doing all the talking for the Somali workers) how and why they came to Greeley and if they themselves are connected to CAIR?
