An organization in Florida plans to educate what it perceives as an increasingly culture-tolerant public about the horrific dictates of Islamic law by purchasing billboard space with a simple, but confrontational message: "Sharia law is hate."

A Tyson Foods poultry processing center in Shelbyville, Tennessee, has granted a bold concession to its Muslim workers. Based on a contract signed in 2007, the plant will substitute Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan and falls on October 1 this year, for Labor Day as one of eight paid holidays on the company calendar.
Hundreds of the plant's 1,200 employees are Muslim and union officials make them a priority. "We in the labor movement have always understood that unions are only strong when we work to protect the dignity of all faiths, and that includes Muslims," said the union president. He asserted that this is the first time a paid day off has been obtained for a Muslim holiday.
