Should you panic when your nurse is Islamic…?

U.K.: Superbug-related safeguards for Muslim medical staff relaxed, days after Christian nurse is banned from wearing crucifix for “safety” reasons

Once again, as we saw in the aftermath of the Fort Hood jihad attacks, political correctness on behalf of Islam takes priority over human life. An update on this story. “NHS relax superbug safeguards for Muslim staff… just days after Christian nurse is banned from wearing crucifix for health and safety reasons,” by Jonathan Petre for theDaily Mail, April 11/via JW:

Muslim doctors and nurses are to be allowed for religious reasons to opt out of strict NHS dress codes introduced to prevent the spread of deadly hospital superbugs.

The Department of Health has announced that female Muslim staff will be permitted to cover their arms on hospital wards to preserve their modesty.

This is despite earlier guidance that all staff should be ‘bare below the elbow’ after long sleeves were blamed for spreading bacteria, leading to superbug deaths.

The Department has also relaxed its ‘no jewellery’ rule by making it clear that Sikhs can wear bangles, as long as they can be pushed up the arm during direct patient care.

The move contrasts with the case of nurse Shirley Chaplin, who last week lost her discrimination battle against Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Trust, which said the cross she has worn since she was 16 was a ‘hazard’ because it could scratch patients.

Mrs Chaplin, 55, had worn the silver cross on a necklace since her confirmation. But the employment tribunal told her that wearing a cross was not a ‘mandatory requirement’ of her faith, even though Muslim doctors are allowed to wear hijabs or headscarves.

Last night she said of the sleeve concession to Muslims: ‘I don’t believe my cross is a danger so this is double standards. What can you say? It seems that life is stacked up against Christians these days.’

Indeed, it will be interesting to watch NHS officials try to explain this double standard away.

Politicians and Christian leaders, including former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey, added that it showed the Government was prepared to accommodate minority faiths while Christianity was marginalised.

Lord Carey said of grandmother Mrs Chaplin: ‘The Muslim voice is very strong, so politicians and others are scared of it. We can only deduce that the hostility aimed at her is because she is a Christian.’

The revised rules, which health officials insist will not compromise hospital hygiene, were drawn up after female Muslim staff objected to exposing their arms in public.

Since the original guidance was announced by the then Health Secretary Alan Johnson in 2007, many hospitals have insisted that staff involved in patient care wear short sleeves at all times.

Mr Johnson’s initiative came amid growing concerns about the number of patients catching superbugs such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile. Hundreds of people have died….

  1. Seems like the offense being committed by the Nurse with the Crucifix is “Being CHRISTIAN in a Godless ,Left wing, Islamophile, moonbat Society ” But hey this is UK which is well on its way to being a Third World cesspit anyway so it is to be expected.
    Will the NHS revisit her crucifix ban in the light of evidence that it allows DANGEROUS LIFE THREATENING practices from Mohammedan and Sikh Nurses. Well when was the last time you saw a Pig FLY????

  2. Is it just me or are Muslims more trouble than they are worth?
    What a tiresome bunch.
    Time to start sending them all “home”.

  3. The Cross brings life … islam and the UK government bring death, on allah’s behalf. The UK is dying, ripe for take over by Antichrist, which will happen.

    Sikhs can wear bangles, according to the article:

  4. To what extent will the British politicians and the Bureaucracy exhibit their stupidness and gross ignorance over what is happening now and what Fate awaits Britain the years to come. I can only offer a word of prayer for all British and hope that they will get out of their stupour earlier and not wait for another Chamberlain to come and give them the same rhetoric of ‘Peace in out times’ and all that bullshiit.

    Whether one likes it or not everyone in the State MUST be bound by the same laws and rules. Making exceptions is profound stupidity. Those who cannot adapt or assimilate to the ways of life in the UK should be asked to go back from where they or their ancestors came from.

    At least France seems to have had the brains to elect a President who seems to understand the grvity of the situation. Australia’s Prime Minister has already told those who cannot adapt to Australia to get out. Surely the Australians mean business. Kudos to them.

  5. Mohammedans are gaining positions in parliament, in health and educational institutions, local councils etc. in the UK. They have probably infiltrated the hierarchy of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital where the nurse was employed. Britain is kaput.

    No kudos to Kevin Rudd I’m afraid, Isa Beb Yusof. He opened the floodgates to allow entry to illegal immigrants. Because there is soon to be an election, he is posturing about getting tough. His tough talk is cheap. He has caught a whiff of the growing anger in the Australian population about the high number of boatloads of illegals arriving daily, due to his policies. He is hoping to diffuse yet another of his cock-ups.

    Islamic shoe-throwing made legal, not considered “violent conduct”

    SCOTLAND YARD has bowed to Islamic sensitivities and accepted that Muslims are entitled to throw shoes in ritual protest — which could have the unintended consequence of politicians or the police being hit.

    News of the concession by the Metropolitan police has come to light amid a series of trials of more than 70 mostly Muslim demonstrators who were charged with violent disorder after last year’s Gaza protests outside the Israeli embassy in London.

    Aquib Salim, 21, an IT student at Queen Mary, London University, who was involved in a shoe-throwing incident, is almost certain to avoid a prison sentence as a result.

    Chris Holt, Salim’s solicitor, said he was likely to get a suspended sentence after he pleaded guilty to a single charge of throwing a stick at police lines.

    “The court accepted that the earlier shoe-throwing incident was simply a ritual form of protest and therefore not a criminal act of violence,” Holt said.

    Judge Denniss agreed that the act of shoe-throwing should not be considered in a charge of violent disorder against the student because it was “a symbolic” political gesture.

  7. * Islamic shoe-throwing made legal …

    … Christmas renamed “Winterval”, Christmas lights forbidden as safety hazards, red & green decorations forbidden, crucifixes forbidden, piggy banks forbidden, service animals forbidden in cabs – would tar and feathering treasonous judges and politicians, or putting their heads on pikes at Traitors Gate be legitimate forms of protest?

  8. What a sensible decision. Suicide bombing is also a “a ritual form of protest and therefore not a criminal act of violence,” as is any other Islamic violence like the bus and train bombings of 7/7.

    Jihad is legal under Islamic law, so let them all go free!

  9. The problem is infiltration as pointed out by Izzla-mo Fo’bik. This is very serious in the UK and it is becoming serious in the US, Europe and Oceania.
    Time to remove these people from the public service.

  10. Agreed..Krudd is just trying to ensure his political survival.
    Muslims have a set plan whenever they enter a new country…One of the first things they do is cosey up to the politicans…they do many things behind the scenes…very clever and very manipulative.
    At once stage , I wrote to various people about our local council supporting an islamic charity..I never got any straight answers..
    There was a book out awhile back which clearly outlined their methods..sorry cannot remember the title.

  11. Talk about government infiltration in the UK and Europe.
    I have only three words.
    Barak Hussein Obama.

  12. Spot on Theresaj – I think that we can bring some pressure to government by simply lobbying as the muslims do. The problem is that their funding is secured from the brain dead ponces in Sowdee land – so we have to be quite clever and imaginative in approaching this. If there are any constitutional lawyers out there who feel, as we do, that we are under threat then it is about time to start getting together to plan a defence and/or offence against the threat we face from the islamists.

  13. The following extract from the Australian Newspaper shows that the Aussies at least have BALLS which the Eurabians and the US seem not to possess and are thus writing the draft of the erasure of all forms of civilisation except Islam in Europe and the USA:

    Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..

    Separately, Ruddangered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:

    ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘

    ‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’

    ‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’

    ‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

    ‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

    ‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’
    ‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

    Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

  14. Sorry to disappoint you, Yusof, but this has being doing the rounds for some time, previously attributed to John Howard:
