“Religion of Soak-the-Taxpayers w/Ridiculous Lawsuits”: Muslim Chick (and Her Bud) Get $400K for Alleged Bullying in School

By Debbie Schlussel
Forget that many Muslim women who wear the hijab (headscarf) are bullied into it by men who can’t control their impulses. This story about bullying is simply ridiculous.
Were you bullied in high school? Did you sue over it? Did you get $400,000 for it? (And remember, bullying–unless it involves “fighting words” or physical touching–is protected free speech.)
Well, you weren’t a Muslim in a headscarf, for whom this is the impetus for a large tax-funded pay day. You just have to cry wolf, and not even prove that there was a wolf.

A Nevada school district agreed to pay $400,000 to a Muslim girl and her friend over allegations that other students threatened to kill her in the stairwell for wearing a religious head scarf and the staff did nothing to stop it.


The Washoe County School District in the Reno area will give Egyptian former student Jana Elhifny $350,000 and her non-Muslim friend and supporter Stephanie Hart $50,000 as part of the civil settlement.
Elhifny and her family came to Reno from Egypt in 2003, and the girl enrolled as a freshman at North Valleys High School.
She didn’t finish the year after she told teachers and administrators that someone had threatened to kill her in the stairwell because of her Muslim hijab or head scarf, the district’s independent attorney in the case, Robert Cox, told FOXNews.com.
Shortly afterwards, Cox said, Elhifny filed the lawsuit and returned to Egypt, where she married her fiance.
The lawsuit, handled by U.S. District Court in Reno, alleges that Elhifny faced death threats and harassment and school administrators did nothing to stop the abuse.
Cox said that wasn’t true, and the teen was unable to give any description of her tormenter – including his or her gender, size and tone of voice.

Of course not, because she was lying. That’s what they do.

He said the high school tried to investigate her claims but was unsuccessful because of the lack of information.
“The district did an incredibly thorough investigation,” Cox told FOXNews.com in a phone interview. “They could never identify the person who perpetrated these acts. … The district did everything it could do to try to help this young woman who is an Egyptian and of the Islam faith.”
Cox said school officials couldn’t confirm the stairwell death threat story.
“They tried to prove that, tried to track down who it was, but without a description … that couldn’t be done,” he said. “The district did watch her constantly and had people in the hallway.”
He said the settlement was agreed upon to end lengthy and “expensive litigation.” The case has been fought in the courts for the past four years, according to Cox.

Great message to send. Make up a story, we’ll settle.

Lawyers for the girls praised them for their bravery in bringing the suit in a joint press released issued by counsel for both sides.
“Ms. Elhifny and Ms. Hart had the courage to stand up for themselves and defend their right to a safe education,” said Peter Obstler, a San Francisco attorney who handled the young women’s lawsuits with the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada.

Oh, barf. Courage, my butt. There is nothing brave about making up a story, cashing in and fleeing back to Egypt. On the contrary, it’s extremely cowardly.

Hart, a non-Muslim who says she was ostracized when she befriended Elhifny at North Valleys High School and also dropped out, will receive $50,000. Cox said she was a supporter of Elhifny’s rather than a victim and never complained to school officials before getting involved in the lawsuit. . . .
Attempts to reach Elhifny in Egypt and Hart, who now has a child and resides in California, weren’t immediately successful.

Watch for the Muslim litigation jihad to explode further, all over America.
Infidel suckas!

Gee Debbie, I didn’t realise that there were no spurious litigations brought by Christians, Jews or Atheists in the states. In England there was a Check In operator who sued because she couldn’t wear her cross to work, how is that substantially different? Why do you bring everything back to religion? In the case you mentioned, it seems to be more a case of bruised sensibilities and possibly greed. It sounds like you are arguing that it would be Ok if they litigated about supposed bullying as long as it wasn’t linked to head scarfs.

I have a HS buddy who sustained permanent brain damage as a result of RR negligence. His settlement? $400,000. Fairness?

We’ve all been teenagers. We all know that, in order to fit in, you don’t do things which make you stick out. Did I wear a yarmulke to school? If you wear a hijab, you’ve basically got a sign on your back which says, “kick me”.

Solution? TORT REFORM! The school district caved because the cost (in attorney’s fees) had they gone to the mat, would have been much greater. Even though the district would have probably prevailed, they would still be out of pocket for much more than they settled for. This is what it’s come to.

Debbie, did you see that blind Muslims are now being given seeing eye horses instead of seeing eye dogs?
