Should have hired Christians, we are not as lazy as those Muslims who HAVE to break to pray 5 times a day. Christians are harder workers who will lot waste our employers time and money.

MM, maybe you can answer this, Someone else didn't dare. Don't muslims have a provision called something like "state of travel" which says that if you are in transition you can dispense with the usual routine and just pray as you are? I have read about it on muslim sites.

So when muslims flop down in a plane aisle or on the job, it is just ostentation.

Christmas is not a working day.
Its a National Holiday for all signed into law by U.S. States President Grant.

i wonder why your family fled to the west. muslims are killing themselves to get to (post ) christian countries and when they arrive they talk about the greatness of islamic societies, weird indeed.

Islam is a 7th century cult as witnessed by having to stop work to pray. No civilization can survive without technology advances and taking constant breaks for ANY reason is counterproductive.

Employers should hire workers who will work---and not constantly require breaks for whatever reason. Just another example of a backward religion that doesn't keep pace with modern life and never will because it won't acclimate to the 21st century.

One of my relatives worked at a petrol station. Although there were more Asians than whites there he was the one chosen to work Christmas day while those damn Asians went off and enjoyed themselves.

Add petrol station employees to the list.

Fortunately Christmas is just one day a year. Muslims pray 5 times a day every day every month and every year. Besides Christians do work on Christmas due to the fact is is triple time at best or double time (hourly pay is doubled or tripled).

This is why Muslims are so backward is they cannot work an 8 hour day without so many breaks.
