"Concerning Trend"

Concerning trend smells like a false flag operation:

Muslims drop names to fit in

FRUSTRATED Muslims are anglicising their names to avoid religious discrimination when applying for work.

According to Islamic leaders, some legally change their name by deed poll while others adopt “new’ monikers for their resumes.

Muslim leader and Islamic Friendship Association founder Keysar Trad said the “sad” trend has become increasingly prevalent – and the recent Sydney riots would only exacerbate the problem.

“Many people are changing from Mohammed to Michael, Ahmed to Allan, Haroun to Harold and others change Mohammed to Jim, even though there is no relationship between the two,” he said.

“It’s sad many Muslims feel compelled to do this. That message is unless you do take on an Anglo name you won’t get past the front door.

“Unfortunately the protests will have an impact with some employers and I appeal for those employers to treat people on merit.”

Mr Trad said people with traditional Muslim names often experience blatant religious discrimination when applying for a job.

“I’ve heard of many cases where people have applied for a job using their Muslim name and not getting an interview, then making a phone call and giving a different name and being called back for an interview,” he said.

Race Discrimination Commissioner Helen Szoke said migrants westernising their Christian names to increase their chances of employment is a growing and concerning trend. “There are many people who you come across who talk about the fact they anglicise their name for employment purposes or because people found it too hard to pronounce or it was foreign,” Ms Szoke said.

“There is definitely evidence to suggest that people do this because they feel it improves or enhances their opportunities to gain work.”

Eddie Chehab, 49, from Drummoyne, said he decided to change his name from Mohammed to Eddie for employment reasons and because his customers struggled to pronounce his name.

“I noticed how hard it was for people to say my name correctly, which is why I changed it but a lot of the younger generations (today) are changing theirs for employment reasons,” Mr Chehab said.

Social analyst David Chalke said it has been scientifically proven that your chances of employment are greater if you have a name which sounds acceptable to your potential employer.

“We all tend to hire people like ourselves,” he said.

  1. “Mr Trad said people with traditional Muslim names often experience blatant religious discrimination when applying for a job.”

    Now, you see, there is the problem. It is not about religious discrimination. It is really about cultural differences and attitudes.

  2. A few years ago a tradie told me he would not employ a Muslim because they want to pray 5 times a day, want to go to the mosque on Friday afternoon regardless of emergency work, and are dangerous on the job during Ramadam because they can’t concentrate due to dehydration.

    Islamic societies do not work- they get dhimmies and slaves to do all the heavy lifting.

  3. From what I read in America, Muslims are encouraged by CAIR to sue their employer, they go for an interview without their Niqab, then when they get the job turn up in it, and when requested to remove it, sue! They also are suing because they can’t get time off for their trip to meca, or proper prayer rooms etc…

  4. FRUSTRATED Muslims are anglicising their names to avoid religious discrimination when applying for work.

    Yet another reason why Muslims should never have been allowed in to the West. This sort of thing, quite unnecessarily makes proper Australians feel bad about themselves, and humiliates Muslims , which only makes them angry.

    Multiculturalism is total shiite. It is ruining inter and intra community relations, sowing discord within normal Christian groups, as they do not know if the person is nominally Christian( abides by Christian values), or a false one.

  5. Try again
