Talk-radio host Michael Savage has announced he will bring his recently dismissed copyright infringement lawsuit against the Council on American-Islamic Relations to the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes of making public the Islamic group's sources of funding.

A Tyson Foods poultry processing center in Shelbyville, Tennessee, has granted a bold concession to its Muslim workers.

He asserted that this is the first time a paid day off has been obtained for a Muslim holiday.
