On June 1st, the Supreme Court “reversed and remanded” Samantha Elauf’s high profile lawsuit concerning her right to wear a hijab at work back to the Tenth Circuit’s appeals court for further proceedings. Elauf, represented by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, had been awarded $20,000 by a jury at the trial level; that award was vacated by the appeals court. Now, when the appeals court revisits the case, they may reinstate that jury award.
The Supreme Court decision states that a private employer must “accommodate” an employee’s religious rights on the job:
(Rightly or wrongly, for good or for bad, many employers will take the message that one should be wary hiring a muslim or any member of a professional grievance mongering group)
(This man should sue for public humiliation as I bet he would win. If an event like this can be allowed to take place at all, then its hard to argue he did anything wrong)
Authorities were searching a home in suburban Boston on Tuesday in connection to the fatal shooting of a man in a terror investigation hours earlier, officials told NBC News.
The man, Usaama Rahim, had been under surveillance by the Boston Joint Terrorism Task Force when he was killed by an officer and a FBI agent outside of a city drugstore, said a senior official with knowledge of the investigation. Authorities were investigating whether Rahim had become radicalized by ISIS-inspired social media messages.

If anyone is fluent in Spanish and English and is willing to take on a fairly large translation of a video from Spanish for an English audience on Iranian-Islamic penetration of Latin America, please leave a comment from your real email address so I might contact you about it. The video is here and is about 22 minutes but some of it is in English so it might be 14 mins or so of Spanish.
