Default Muslim Woman Plans On Filing Lawsuit, Wants 'Respect'

Alleged Discrimination Rocks N.Y. Waterways

Click the image to open in full size.

A New York Waterways employee has been suspended after telling two Muslim women to take off some of their religious attire.

CBS 2’s Sean Hennessey spoke with one of the women who feels she was singled out because of her religion.

On the docks of the New York Waterways, intolerance and ignorance reared their ugly head.

When Huda Alasali and a friend were denied a ferry ride to Governors Island on Saturday by a crew member who took issue with their wardrobe, regulations and security were the reasons given, but they’re not mentioned in any of the rules listed at the dock.

“I said to him, ‘If you have a metal detector, you can check our bags. You can check us. We don’t have nothing with us,’” Alasali said. “He said, ‘No you cannot go on the ferry with all that clothes. Take it off.’”

“Truly I felt like, you know what? He thinks that we are terrorists.”

Not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslim. However, not sure having her show her face would really prove anything.

Yeah so does Rodney Dangerfield. but he's dead now and finally got that respect he was lacking.

Sometimes you just have to wait your turn.

How would they feel if a couple KKK members in full attire wanted to take that ferry? I'm sure they just want the same respect and this lady wants and should get the same treatment as everyone else who doesn't dress like an idiot and expects not to get made fun of.

You want to send a message ... A to the mother****in K ... get ready on the left ...

when your "religious attire" conveniently hides your identity..

you do not DESERVE respect.

islam isn't a religion anyway. its a political movement.
