Oceanside California DMV Bows to Islam

The Islamic onslaught of America continues, and unfortunately non-Muslim continue to bow down to the demands of Muslims. All Americans should be outraged that our brave troops are overseas fighting the violent jihad, and yet our weak government is letting the lawful jihad slowly, tear us apart from within.

DMV apologizes to Muslim woman for taking off religious head scarf.

June 3, 2010

OCEANSIDE, Calif., – Is it discrimination or miscommunication ? An Oceanside woman claimed she was discriminated at a branch of the Department of Motor Vehicles back in February.

Dina Rabie said that during a trip to the Oceanside DMV office about three months ago, an employee told her that she had to take of her “hijab” or headscarf.

“It’s a religious thing. It’s for Muslim women. you have to wear it. It’s more than covering your hair,” said Rabie.

But when she posed to take her license picture, after moving to San Diego from New Jersey, she claimed the DMV employee told her that she needed to take it off because ‘it was the rules.’

“Everybody was looking at me, and I was very embarassed actually,” she said. “I was like, I have my New Jersey drivers license, I have my green card, and I never had a problem with that, and I never had to take off my scarf in public.”

According to Dina, taking off the hijab in public is similar to being naked. Nonetheless, shocked and embarrassed, she complied and took the picture anyway. With her mother and brother waiting outside, she said she was in tears after the incident.

“He said, this is not New Jersey or New York. This is California,” she said of the DMV employee.

But now with the help of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, she wants her message public, and doesn’t want anybody to go through her situation, no matter what religion they believe.

“I just don’t want to see anybody in my situation. It was very embarrassing. everybody was looking at me like I’m from a different planet or something,” said Rabie.

Since the incident, the DMV said this was a misunderstanding between the employee and Dina. In a statement, the DMV said: “This isolated incident is a very unfortunate misunderstanding/communication between the customer and the employee who was taking the photo. It is a long standing policy that customers may keep their head coverings on if they are needed for religious reasons. The only stipulation is that the face has to be totally visible (eyes, nose, mouth) with no shadows.”

The DMV also said the field office manager has reviewed the policy with the employee, and steps have been taken to stop misunderstandings in the future. The DMV field office manager also apologized to Dina and arranged for her to come in next Monday to retake the photo, said the DMV.

However Dina said she is unsure whether she will do that.

“I’m very embarassed to be in the same situation or to be treated in a special way or something,” said Rabie.

The DMV said they will also hold a refresher course on religious head coverings policy at field offices next Wednesday.

    The worst part is that last paragraph. They think the employees need sensitivity (dhimmi) training. Ugh.

        The law is that a head-scarf can be worn, so I’m not sure who you want to beat. But I am for beating the crap out of most DMV workers on general principle.

    I am so sick of this nonsense. Rules are rules. I had on one time a little scarf, my hair was messed up and I had to have passport taken, I had to take my scarf off.
    Leave that religion in the part of the world were it belongs.
    Over there, they don't care how we like to live.

      I wonder if we’d be so outraged if it had been a Catholic nun in a habit, or an Orthodox Jew waring his Yarmulke. The First Amendment is designed to prohibit: arbitrary discrimination against religion with no compelling government interest. Further, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed by Congress in 1993 requires that such general rules give way to strongly held religious convictions unless they meet the test of compelling necessity.

        Christians and Jews are not on worldwide jihad, looking to subjugate the world under a set of barbaric religious laws. So lets please stick to the issue at hand. Also Muslims have mastered how to use our freedoms against us to advance Islam. Our constitution will not protect us from Islam. After the Barbary Coast Wars, Islam should of been banned in America.

    You are correct, one demand leads to another. Their list is endless.

    Maria is absolutely correct. Let everyone keep giving in and apologizing for "our errors" and we will end up a nation of classes, just like the Mid-East. and guess who will have the majority of privileges?

    Well, now I guess that any of us dhimmis can go into the DMV with scarves on our heads just exposing our eyes, nose and mouth and we'll be okay, right, for our picture? The alien and hostile planet the Islamists are from is not MY planet! The reason people were staring at her is because people are wising up about Islam. Get used to it you female Muslim slave!! Islam is a scourge on our nation. Unbelievable that they are being allowed to come here, especially when their ideology teaches them that it is their "right" and sole intent to subdue every nation on earth and bring every person under Islamist rule or kill them. Islam and our Constitutional Republic are incompatible. They can never exist peacefully side by side. Political correctness is the road to hell.

    My comment wasn't posted either—I misunderstood. I thought this site is against Islamification of the USA and is critical of Islam. I hope that you really are NOT just a billboard advertising for how Islam is successfully taking over America. Maybe I made a mistake. Have you or your family been threatened? Are you ill? Did you convert? What's happening? Do we get egg roll with our taqyiah? Why print articles about Islamification and have a comment section, you know?

      They have NO intentions of assimilating and when asked, they loose thier minds and go off on a tangent about how that means we want them to be boozers and drug addicts chasing women and being immoral. It is kinda funny watching them have a freakin coronary.. angry little people they are…

    The People's Democrapic State of Kalifornica is hopelessly socialistic. The Marxist there will side with ANY side that is not anti-American or damages American values in some way. Unrealistically, as usual, they side with the muz, against American values, unwittingly opening the door for sharia support progress. Sharia law would not make those dimwits happy, but they don't know what it is yet.

      Not to worry. They will be bankrupt and thus ineffective before long. They cannot stop spending so the day of reckoning is close at hand. When they can no longer maintain law and order they will be history, and people will take over the state.

        The head scarfs should be banned fromanywhere public. They look like Rogue Daleks… or Black Pillar boxes, (for the Americans -thats a Black English Post box ), They drive looking through smaller slits than a Second World War tank!
        EVERYBODY else has to remove headwear,including crash helmets when going into banks,petrol ststions and even corner shops! So WHY should it be one law for us?…. and another for the Muslims??? This is an AngloSaxon Christian country,not another Muslim mess! (I mean Muslim State!!).

    Stage 1:
    Start immigrating – move into a country quietly

    Stage 2:
    Begin starting churches: “learning centers”
    community helps: food etc.

    Stage 3:
    Political activism: demanding rights, denounce
    derogatory comments/press etc.

    Stage 4:
    Get elected, pass laws favoring rights etc. move toward
    political majority

    Stage 5:
    Political control, Sharia Law

    I’m adament about this — I sincerely believe that Muslims should also go to sensitivity training so that they will understand why we Americans are incensed when Muslims ask for special privileges from the taxpayers. Why do Muslims think they are “the best of people”?

    Muslims should understand why we Americans became angry when Muslims bombed the Trade World Center.

    Muslims should understand that we love salami sandwiches, that we should be able to eat them in front of anyone, including Muslims, without reprisals or snide remarks.

    Muslims should understand that Americans love freedom of speech, and that we should be able to criticize Islamism for stoning women to death, or that we should be able to criticize Islamism for relegating women to second class status without reprisals from Muslims.

    Muslims should understand why we Americans cannot accept the cruelties of Islamism.

    Why must it always be a one-way street? Muslims, too, should go to sensitivity training. We Americans are sick and tired of the antics of Islamism.

      June 9, 2010 at 9:31 pm

      Sure, no one here is suppporting what those sicko Priests did, and they were not commanded by their religion to molest children. But Islam allows pedophilia, and rape.

      Islam 101: The Religion of Rape


      Also Christians are not on a worldwide movement trying to impose a set of barbaric laws on all, but Muslims are.

    • June 9, 2010 at 11:27 pm

      Why? This site isn’t about pedophile priests. But we can discuss pedophilia in pislam if you like. Mahound set the example and he’s the model for all arselifters.

      I wrote all but one of the articles in the Islam 101 section. I have been studying Islam, and the Muslim movement for 8 years now. I have read the Koran, and the Bukhari, and Muslim ahadith. It does not have to be all Muslims, just like it did not have to be all Germans. But the bottom line with Muslim immigration is trouble, and it is time to end it.

      Yes those sicko Priests are brain damaged, and the ones that covered for them, should rot in jail as well.

        • admin
          June 9, 2010 at 11:29 pm

          Right, because you know more about Islam than scholars Bukhari and Muslim. I have also studied from an Islamic Law manual that has the stamp of approval of Al Azhar, the highest learning Islamic school in the world. Do you know more about Islam, than the scholars there do? I have read the Koran translated by scholar Yusuf Ali. Maybe you are more knowledgeable on the subject than he is.

          Yes this is my site, it is here to expose the threat that Islam is to Western Civilization. I had a feeling that you were a Muslim, when you tried to get the focus onto the Priests. When you can refute my articles, please let me know.

          Take care.

    • June 9, 2010 at 11:29 pm

      What do you mean become one of them with disgusting ways?

      I can’t think of anything worse than being an arselifter and drinking camel urine, Mahound’s urine and faeces, being a pedophile, abusing women and kids, raping, lying, stealing, murdering, etc. pislam is one sick cult.

    What your family taught you is not Islam, as Muslims are not supposed to take Jews, and Christians as friends.

    YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

    So in all actuality you do not know more about Islam than the scholars that I mentioned earlier, and in no way do you have anywhere near close the authority that they have in the Islamic world. Mohammad called for the dominance of Christians, and Jews. He was a real Muslim.

    YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

    You might be the nicest person in the world, but you will not change my mind about Islam itself.

    There’s an interesting story happening locally that’s sort of related to this.

    A policeman in Sydney pulled over a driver for a minor offence. When he was presented with her driver’s licence, he asked her to remove her veil so he could verify it was her. She refused. She later lodged a report of racism against the officer.

    There’s a video of the news report here but its been shortened –


    What’s interesting is that Mamdouh Habib, former GITMO inmate, is involved somehow. He can be seen in the background with a suit and sunglasses (on the right) at the 14 sec. mark.

    He might be familiar to New Yorkers. I’ve seen a video of him and his bint in New York protesting the arrest of the imam responsible for the first WTC attack in 1991.

    Anyway, that report was on last night’s news. There was a follow up report on tonight’s news that’s also interesting. I’ll post the URL when they put it up.
