First of all, great post by Melisa.

If Muslims are allowed to discriminate against any citizen they wish, as spelled out in Melisa's post, then the rules of the game should be able to be reversed. Any person wishing a cab should be able to say "do not send a Muslim", or refuse to enter a cab driven by a Muslim. Use the same criteria that the Muslims--you don't agree with their religious beliefs/culture. Just watch the fur fly when they scream discrimination and complain to CAIR.

Or, make them list the people/objects and food that they will not allow in their cabs. Revolving signs on their cab light-- NO ALCOHOL, NO PETS, NO UNACCOMPANIED WOMEN, NO UNCOVERED WOMEN, NO HOMOSEXUALS, NO PORK PRODUCTS, NO JEWS, NO CHRISTIANS......round and round, the message goes....

Put them out of business--make the statement that WE WILL NOT SUBMIT. This is the United States, where we have freedom FROM religion as well as freedom OF religion.

Submitting....
