Handshake Muslim loses court case

Rotterdam council was right not to offer lawyer Mohammed Enait the job of client manager after he refused to shake hands with women, a court in The Hague said on Tuesday afternoon.

Enait had applied for the job at the social services department but said he would not shake hands with women on religious grounds. However, he would greet them in another respectful fashion, he said.

When he was refused the job, Enait brought a civil case against Rotterdam council, saying the rejection was religious discrimination.

The court found the refusal to shake women’s hands ‘unacceptable’ and that Enait is ignoring the equality between men and women, reports news website nu.nl. In addition, it would damage the relationship between the council and its clients.

In 2009, Enait was in the news for refusing to stand up in court when judges entered the room on the grounds that in Islam all men are equal.

  1. I was thinking about this one. And you know, some orthodox Jews won’t shake hands with a woman if they aren’t married to them or some complex variant of that theme. As goofy as I think that is, the difference, which is an important one, is that these Jews would not insist on being placed in a position of public service where breaking their customs or religious rules would be necessary.

    In other words, Muslims are taking jobs which are anathema to their habits and beliefs specifically to force their values on the wider public. This is the issue, not the shaking hands or not of women. It is tantamount to someone who does not drink taking a job as a bartender and refusing to touch or serve alcohol. Which by the way, Muslims have done also. Or taking a job at a hair salon and then showing up in a hijab with the hair hidden and insisting it is their right to work there. This has also happened and more than once.

    Of course muslims have a right to wear a hijab (That way we know who they are) or not shake hands or not eat pork. The issue is that Muslims force these upon us in taxis, hair salons and public service. In other words, it is a facet of war. Not religious rites or religious rights.

  2. Basically this immigrant is making clear that he does not obey the laws, or respect the culture of the country that has been generous enough to allow him to lice in it.

    First, he should be made to pay court costs.

    Second, he should be asked, politely at first, to leave the country.
