Eight Central Florida Muslim workers are filing complaints with the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against Star Taxi, which is a transportation company based in Orlando.
During a Tuesday morning news conference in Kissimmee, Mohamed Benhassine said he was fired on Jan. 8 because he prayed on a break.
“When we pray at the mall, we choose to pray by the dumpster. So that way we don’t block no traffic. We’re not blocking the sidewalk and we’re not interfering with any business,” said Kissimmee Resident Mohamed Benhassine.
Benhassine said the incident took place on January 8th behind the Premium Orlando Outlets on Vineland Road in Orlando.
“I think in America, everybody has the right to practice his religion freely,” explained Behassine, who said someone took a picture of him praying and that he was fired later that evening.
Meanwhile, Star Taxi, is owned by Transtar Transportation Group. President and CEO Robert Gaye said his company has never recieved an allegation of discrimination in the more than 25 years it has been in business.
However, several other drivers have joined him in filling employment discrimination complaints.

Isn’t it great when the leftist media decides to shed their image as “loving left” to show off their true colors? Chris Matthews decided to go on Ed Schultz’s show (ratings power combo!!!!) and not only ridicule Mitt Romney, but he also disparaged his entire religion in the process and said the GOP was ready to “outsource” the presidency to a Mormon. He then called it a cult, and threw some other insults in there for good manner. How long until all those media watchdog groups come out and start demanding advertisers leave MSNBC? Come on, we’re waiting…

Most liberals proudly declare themselves to be “pro-choice.” In truth, this is a myth—a myth that should be put to rest once and for all. The truth is most liberals are only pro-choice if you agree with the choices they want you to make. However, if one has the audacity to say no to some part of the liberal agenda, they then insist that a paternalistic, omnipresent government step in and make your choices for you—like it or not. While America was founded on the core belief of individual liberty, their motto is essentially, “Government Knows Best.” Sure, they might be in favor of choice when it comes to abortion and gay-marriage, but the list ends there.
A prime example of this hypocrisy comes by way of New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. Bloomberg, a “pro-choice” liberal, believes he, not you, should decide how to best raise your children. Bloomberg’s Department of Education will now mandate that sex education be taught in the public schools and your kids will have to take the class—like it or not. Under the new plan, children will be forced to receive graphic sex education that includes discussions on such topics as mutual masturbation and different sexual positions. Your kids will also be directed to check out a graphic website called, “Go Ask Alice,” in which they can also learn about pornography, bestiality, and sadomasochism.

A motion hearing in the case of United States vs. Pfc. Bradley E. Manning is scheduled for March 15 at 10 a.m., at Fort Meade in Maryland, as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his backers are coming under increasing scrutiny.
In the biggest release of classified information in U.S. history, Manning is accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of U.S. Government documents and turning them over to Assange and WikiLeaks. Evidence at Manning’s preliminary hearing demonstrated that there had been collusion between Manning, a military homosexual, and Assange, a convicted hacker now involved in the foreign propaganda operations of Moscow-funded Russia Today (RT) television.

Ohio State Senator Nina Turner is taking aim at the multitude of reproductive rights bills that have made waves in the United States this year — 430 thus far, by MSNBC’s count — by sponsoring a bill of her own: One that would force men to meet with sex therapists before being prescribed Viagra and other erectile dysfunction medications.
Earlier this week on MSNBC’s Jansing & Co. program, the Cleveland Democrat told host Chris Jansing that Senate Bill 307 is “all about … making sure we look out for men’s sexual health.”
