Oklahoma: Hamas-linked CAIR sees Muslim discrimination at Tulsa bank

The bank has a "no hats, no hoods, no sunglasses" rule so all who may violate those rules are subjected to increased scrutiny.  Hamas-CAIR says that the bank is singling out Muslim women because they wear a head covering that is religiously mandated.  Note that there is no report of Mennonite women complaining, of Jewish women, or Catholic women, or Amish women...

Bank discrimination against Muslims alleged over headwear policy

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is calling on Tulsa's Valley National Bank to review its "inappropriate and discriminatory" policy that treats customers wearing religious head coverings differently from other patrons.
The organization says that on Oct. 9, a Muslim woman tried to enter the Valley National Bank branch at 4812 E. 81st St., in hopes that she could exchange foreign currency but was told she would not be able to enter unless accompanied by a bank employee because of their "no hats, no hoods, no sunglasses" policy. 
"Singling out Muslim women or other people of faith who wear religiously mandated head coverings that do not hinder identification is inappropriate and discriminatory," said Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR's Oklahoma chapter. "All customers should be treated equally regardless of their faith or religious practices."

Notice how Islamic supremacists (CAIR) denies there is a policy for all patrons and focuses on the "victimization" of Muslim women.  No context and no equal analysis.  Typical for leftists and Islamists. 
The complainant, a woman from Kiefer, did not want her identity publicized, but Soltani told the Tulsa World that his organization first took her complaint directly to bank officials, "hoping they would acknowledge it was a mistake or offer an apology." 
"We were actually shocked to find out their policy is separate but equal, going back to things that African-Americans and other people have experienced," he said. "They said, 'We do allow them in the bank but they must be escorted anywhere they go.' 
"Their excuse was it's a security measure, but there are no reports ever in Oklahoma that I am aware of, of anyone in religious headwear robbing a bank," Soltani said.

Yet.  The rules now in place should help to prevent such a scenario, but when it does happen, what will be said then?  Were sorry?  Yeah, right.
