Sweetness and Light picked up this little reported news from Chicago Sun-Times. It seems 500 Muslim cab drivers have not only been collecting the blessings of Allah during Ramadan but also some traffic tickets too.

Faisal, a taxicab driver who works at O’Hare Airport, wants to be a good cabbie while staying true to his Muslim faith. But Muslim cabdrivers are finding the latter difficult lately, as they’ve been hit with a rash of tickets for parking in access lanes leading to the airport terminals near where the city helped set up a prayer trailer for them.

Drivers such as Faisal say they mean no harm by parking in the lanes leading to the prayer trailer on the grounds of O’Hare’s commercial lot — which either have no-parking signs posted or are meant for brief stops.

I wonder what part of ‘No parking’ they don’t understand. Oh, that’s right. That’s an infidel rule at the airport – not applicable to Muslims.

Wolfgang J. Weiss, one of the managing directors of the Chicago Professional Taxicab Drivers Association, said more than 500 cabs have been ticketed. Ultimately, drivers are responsible for paying the tickets — ranging from $50 to $80 — which can cut their daily profit in half, Weiss said.

But Weiss admits that authorities probably won’t give them a break, so his association is going to petition Mayor Daley and others for relief.

Hey dhimmi! Rules are rules. Ever hear of the old Arab saying – “If you let the camel’s nose into the tent the camel will follow.”

Aviation Department spokesman Greg Cunningham said authorities do not want to interrupt Muslims and their prayer habits. But he contends that cabbies must follow the rules at a facility that needs to be clear of traffic in order for operations to run smoothly and safely.

How novel. Muslims having to follow the rules.

“It’s a temporary parking and holding area,” Cunningham said. “If a vehicle blocks off other vehicles from leaving the facility, it becomes a problem.”

Iqbal, another Muslim cabdriver, said the city is punishing honest people duty-bound to their faith. “It doesn’t happen every day,” he said.

If you’re faith is that important, accommodate to the business you’re in or take of work. Other faiths in this country do.

And whatever happened to that hard and fast rule that you can’t leave vehicles unattended at the airport. Or is that only for infidels.
