I warned then that, "...by stages. Muslim cabbies can begin with alcohol because there's already a suspicion of it in Western societies. It's a short step from barring passengers with alcohol to barring passengers with ham sandwiches. According to Islam both are forbidden after all. Then transport to women they consider immodestly dressed, to Israelis, to people sporting crosses, etc. There's a lot of things Sharia, Islamic Law, forbids after all."
Well as it turns out the next step is refusing transport to blind people with seeing eye dogs because among the many things Islam hates, it hates dogs.
‘Unclean’ guide dog banned by Muslim cab driver.
"A Muslim minicab driver refused to take a blind passenger because her guide dog was “unclean”.
Abdul Rasheed Majekodumni told Jane Vernon she could not get into his car with the dog because of his religion. Islamic tradition warns Muslims against contact with dogs because they are seen as impure.Mrs Vernon, who works as a legal officer for the Royal National Institute for the Blind, added: “The owner of the minicab firm, Niven Sinclair, was also very insensitive, telling me that what had happened to me wasn’t really very important, and I should have more respect for other people’s culture. They have shown very little respect for my rights as a disabled person and have never once offered me an apology.”
And it's not just England. 'Australian Muslim Cabbies Refusing the Blind and Drinkers'
MUSLIM taxi drivers are refusing to carry blind passengers with their guide dogs or anyone carrying alcohol.
At least 20 dog-aided blind people have lodged discrimination complaints with the Victorian Taxi Directorate. Dozens more have voiced their anger. And there have been several complaints that drivers refuse to allow passengers to carry sealed bottles of alcohol.
Victorian Taxi Association spokesman Neil Sach said the association had appealed to the mufti of Melbourne to give religious approval for Muslim cabbies to carry guide dogs."And Norway: Blind People Rejected by Muslim Taxi Drivers.
Grethe Olsen, accompanied by her guide dog Isak, experienced being rejected by no less than 21 taxis before finally getting a ride. Olsen thinks the taxi drivers said no for religious reasons. The Norwegian Blind Association confirms that this is a well known problem all over the country, especially in cities with many immigrants.
Now blind people, the handicapped are a recognized minority but as always with liberals, the loudest, least law abiding and most hate-filled minority trumps all the others. In the same way that Muslim mysoginy trumps feminism and Muslim homophobia trumps gay rights, Muslim disgust for dogs trumps the rights of the handicapped. And as usual civil rights now becomes hostage to Islamic religion used to hijack the public sphere and make it subject to Islamic law.This has now happened in four countries that we know of and three continents. When that does that become a global pattern? And so the Cab Jihad continues.
