US Commerce department perpetuates Muslim victimization, mulls special treatment as 'economically and socially disadvantaged" group

Special treatment for a segment of the population that deserves no special treatment.  Millions of Americans are out of work, a small percentage are Arab or Muslim and yet the feds want to provide them with special rights regarding social status and jobs.  It is assumed that they are the new "negro" and must be given rights and privileges so as to level the playing field and make sure they are on the same page as everyone else.


What about those disadvantaged non-Arab and non-Muslim people who need assistance?  What programs and support do they get?  By providing special accommodations for a small group you discriminate against the majority.  How does this make society better?


From The Washington Times May 29 by Rachel Leven

The Commerce Department is considering naming Arab Americans a socially and economically disadvantaged minority group that is eligible for special business assistance.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) petitioned Commerce earlier this year to ask that Arab Americans be made eligible for the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), which helps minority entrepreneurs gain access to capital, contracts and trade opportunities.

The ADC petition cited “discrimination and prejudice in American society resulting in conditions under which Arab-American individuals have been unable to compete in a business world.” The group claimed discrimination against Arab Americans increased after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Yes there was an uptick after 9-11 but the greatest discrimination in the last ten years has been against Jews, not Muslims.  Jews suffer at a rate 9 times greater than Muslims, yet our fearless leader believes that it is Muslims who are the poor, subjugated people who need a helping hand.  And all this will result in more Muslims voting for Obama in November.  Disgusting.
