WE CANNOT GO IN WITH A HOODIE OVER OUR HEADSWHY SHOULD THEY BE ALLOWED TO WEAR THE hIJAB?

Oklahoma: Hamas-linked CAIR enraged as
judge dismisses Muslima’s lawsuit over
having to take off hijab at courthouse

Jihad Watch reported on this story several days ago, but this Tulsa World article has much more detail about the case. This looks as if it is yet another instance of Hamas-linked CAIR trying to trump up “Islamophobia” and fabricate an “anti-Muslim hate crime” where none exists; actual such cases are so thin on the ground that they have to resort to these fabrications in order to buttress their ridiculous claim that Muslims in the U.S. are subjected to routine discrimination and harassment.
What does Hamas-linked CAIR want in this case? It likely wants hijabbed Muslimas to be able to pass through security searches without removing their hijabs. They could have weapons concealed underneath, but that’s just too bad: Hamas-linked CAIR at every opportunity tries to reinforce the principle that where Islamic law and American practices conflict, it is American practices that must be set aside.
“Suit dismissed: Judge says Muslim woman didn’t show that her constitutional rights were violated,” by Curtis Killman, Tulsa World, January 23, 2019 (thanks to Doc):
A judge has dismissed a Muslim woman’s civil rights lawsuit after finding that her complaint failed to meet the legal burden to show that Tulsa County sheriff’s deputies violated her constitutional rights when they refused to let her enter the courthouse because she wouldn’t remove her hijab in public when she set off a metal detector.
U.S. District Judge Claire Eagan, in an opinion and order released Tuesday, dismissed claims against four sheriff’s deputies sued in their personal capacities….
Keith Wilkes, a private attorney representing the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, issued the following statement Wednesday when asked to comment on the ruling:
“The decision by the ACLU and CAIR attorneys to hold a self-serving press conference last year in which they made substantive misstatements and gross exaggerations regarding the incident while failing to disclose pertinent facts, led to a national media story that wasn’t. Once the actual truth was exposed and applied to federal law, the Court dismissed Ms. Elqutt’s lawsuit at the earliest possible stage because she failed to establish there was any violation of her constitutional rights.
“The men and women of the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Department did their jobs. This was not a case of a person being targeted for her faith. It was a person required to go through a security checkpoint, like all others, who was permitted to walk through the metal detector with her hijab in-place. Unfortunately, she then set off two different metal detectors, four different times, because she had an unknown metal object under her hijab. Once female deputies were able to look under the hijab—outside the view of any men — Ms. Elqutt was cleared and allowed to proceed. There was no violation of her constitutional rights.
“Hundreds of people of all different walks of life, race, faith and ethnicity access the Tulsa County Courthouse each day, and this is the first time the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office has been accused of violating anyone’s constitutional rights while going through security. In fact, court records reveal that Ms. Elqutt herself went through security 8 times in 5 months before this incident, and two times since, all without incident. The Court made the right decision by dismissing this lawsuit.”
Elqutt filed the civil rights lawsuit after she was stopped by deputies after she set off a metal detector when she tried to enter the Tulsa County Courthouse April 10 while wearing a hijab.
