The employee told the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that she was terminated from her position as a staff writer at the Kansas City Jewish Chronicle one day after telling her supervisor who she had married. When informed of the marriage, the supervisor allegedly said: "I am going to have to think about this." When the employee returned to work following her announcement of the marriage, she said her supervisor's behavior became increasingly hostile. The supervisor allegedly commented to a friend over the phone that, [b]"There is no way Muslims can be friends with Jews, no way at all."[/b] When the employee asked why she was fired, newspaper officials claimed she was an unreliable worker, despite receiving many positive reviews from readers and her supervisor during seven months of employment. In a letter faxed to the Chronicle in Overland Park, Kansas, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad wrote: "The timing of the woman's termination, along with the Islamophobic comments of her supervisor, indicate that your publication's actions were motivated by anti-Muslim and anti-Arab prejudice. If these allegations are true, you must take immediate and concrete steps to demonstrate that bigotry will not be tolerated at the Chronicle or in Kansas." Awad asked the newspaper to initiate an investigation of the incident and provide the fired employee with a formal apology, back pay and monetary compensation for the emotional distress she suffered as a result of the incident.

There's definately a conspiracy here that the government does not want you to know about. My theory is, that they're hiding the fact that this was a lazy, incompetent, goldbrickin' screwup, and was terminated solely on this basis. This is an obvious illustration of how the current government is suborning our 1st, 2nd, 5th, 8th, 10th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd, 27th, and 31st amendment rights. Wake up before it's too late.
