Islamic philosopher and sociologistÂ Hossein AdibiÂ knows why so many Muslims are unemployed here:
Muslim people already suffer twice the unemployment rate of other workers in QueenslandÂ and the global economic crisis is likely to make matters worse, research shows.
A study undertaken by Queensland University of Technology researcher Dr Hossein Adibi found there was a huge gap between the level of unemployment in the general population and Muslims, something that was likely to worsen in the declining economic climate… Dr Adibi found that Muslims were disadvantaged due to four main factors: racism, discrimination, media bias and the lack of Muslim representation in decision-making bodies.
* Spell it out, Andrew: Muslims have a God given Allah given right to rule over us. That’s why we call it Islamic supremacy…
That’s odd: The four main reasons Dr Adibi gives for very high rates of unemployment among Muslims all involve them being picked on or ignored by non-Muslims. Talk about feeding a nasty culture of victimhood. Isn’t is likely that Muslim unemployment might be better explained by poor English, poor skills, poor assimilation, poor education of women and a culture among some of rejection of our wider society?
* Hmm,Â whackingÂ females under shrouds and using them as breeders doesn’t Â help getting them employed. Besides, allowing females gainful employment is haram, is it not?
Could it be that this is the real reason?
In his bookÂ While Europe Slept, Bruce Bawer reports that Muslim leaders in Norway tell their people that “Islamic law gives them the right to abuse the infidels’ system as much as possible â€” the right, in Kheir Sajer’s words, to ‘cheat and lie to the countries that harbor them.’ They are told to view the benefits they receive asÂ jizyaÂ â€“ the tributes that the infidel natives of Muslim-occupied countries are obliged to pay to Muslims in order to preserve their lives.” As commanded by the Qur’an (9:29).
That’s Norway, and this is the Netherlands, but it is unlikely that the situation in the Netherlands is significantly different. “Immigrant families suspected of state benefit fraud,”Â fromÂ Radio Netherlands
