UK: lawsuit alleges Muslim airport employees systematically harass Christians

Catholic World News - November 29, 2011

Nohad Halawi, a Christian woman who worked at Heathrow Airport for 13 years until she was fired in July, alleges she lost her job after complaining of frequent harassment by some of her Muslim colleagues.

“They said that 9/11 served the Americans right and that they hated the West, but that they had come here because they want to convert people to Islam,” she said. “They say that Jesus is s----- and bullied a Christian friend of mine so much for wearing her crosses that she came to me crying.”

After defending her friend, Halawi alleges that the Muslims complained she was anti-Islamic, and Halawi’s security pass was revoked.

“This is supposed to be a Christian country, but the law seems to be on the side of the Muslims,” she said.

    They must not be very good Muslims, because no Muslim in his right mind would say that "Jesus is s____". He's considered one of their prophets.
