Jamaat al-Muslimeen International Press Release (www.newtrendmag.org)
American Red Cross in Omaha Nebraska
The editor of New Trend magazine has copies of all the documentation.
I was terminated March 15 under the pretext of sexual harassment because
management staff knew that I had knowledge and evidence against them.
My termination was out of fear of me bringing allegations against them.
One of the founding principles of the International Red Cross is
"Neutrality". The Omaha branch of the American Red Cross is not
neutral. There is discrimination against Arabs, Islam, and other
non-Christian religions. There is also discrimination based on political
Even before the "9-11" event, employees would talk of making an Arabic
or Islamic country into a "glass parking lot". Another phrase used was
"they should all be killed". There were other comments like "they should
thank us", presumably for "civilizing" them and saving them from evil
dictators. I do not know if the former Shah of Iran was included as
one of the dictators.
A new restaurant and meat shop opened up less than 3 months ago, just
one block from where the Red Cross Harney building is. Some Red Cross
employees referred to the owners as "towel heads". The talk would go on
sometimes refering to Halal Meats employees as "terrorists"
I believe the climate at the Red Cross makes it almost impossible for an
Arab, Persian, or Afghan person to be employed there. I think it would be
ridiculous to consider this a place of fair employment for a Muslim.
I need to talk about the allegations of sexual harassment against me.
In the 16 months that I have worked for the Red Cross I have been
touched in a friendly way by female employees. I have been told
several times how nice I look. I have been told by female co-workers
that they like the bulges in my pants. I have been asked out on dates.
Everyday female co-workers call me "honey", "sugar", "love of my life",
"baby", "darling", and other names. Also females from the Human Resources
department have called me "sweetie" and hugged me.
I was being accused of the things that other employees had done.
For example, one of the things they said I did was invite
co-workers to eat with me after work. In fact, 2 weeks ago, on an
employee's last day with the Red Cross, I and other employees were
invited to a party at a Red Cross employee's house 2 blocks away.
There was plenty of alcohol at the party. One female employee was late
almost 2 hours the next day because of the hangover.
The management of the Red Cross knew that I had this
information and decided to terminate me in fear that I was going use
this damaging information against them. However, I am a team player
and I love helping to save lives. As long as I was working for the Red
Cross and we were contributing to saving people's lives everyday, I was
willing to continue. I spent more than 2 hundred dollars of my own
money feeding my co-workers. I treated them to pizzas, egg rolls,
shrimp, and anything else they wanted. Ironically, the management of
the Red Cross contantly tried to get me to give them the receipts so
that it would come out of the Red Cross budget. They seemed to always
want to find ways of giving donor's contributions away.
I was born and raised here in amerikkka. I have always been treated as a
second class citizen because of my race. This continues when I make any
political contribution, or even if I eat at a muslim owned restaurant.
I would like to know where is the United Nations Commission on Human Rights
when muslims are being imprisoned on 'secret' evidence, being tortured and
discriminated against on a daily basis? When is the UN going to provide
some protection for the people of Afrikan descent being beaten and killed
by racist police officials?
The editor of New Trend told me years ago that the only way there will be
justice in this land for any person of non-european descent is under
al-Islam. I am starting to believe that he is correct. In fact, I have
decided to start reading The Holy Qu'ran. The first thing that happened
when I stated this was that someone sent me an electronic version of the
The Holy Qu'ran
However, Dr Siddique said this was the wrong version. He is sending me
the Yusuf Ali translation in the (snail) mail. I wish I had the time and
money to put this version online!
