Some Halliburton Co. supervisors and co-workers are accused of harassing two Muslim employees, according to a lawsuit filed against the world’s biggest fracking provider by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Bloomberg Halliburton Energy Services Inc., a unit of the Houston-based contractor, allegedly created a hostile work environment by subjecting them to harassment based on their national origin and religion, according to the suit. The company also retaliated against one of the two workers by firing him for reporting the mistreatment, the commission said Tuesday in a statement.
Hassan Snoubar, a U.S. citizen of Syrian origin, began working for the company around August 2012 primarily in the Texas towns of Odessa and Kilgore as an operator-assistant oilfield worker, the EEOC said. The other named worker is Mir Ali, a Muslim who is of Indian origin.
The complaint, filed in Dallas federal court, alleges that Snoubar was subjected to taunts and called names such as “terrorist” and “camel jockey.” He reported the harassment to supervisors, but the company “failed or refused” to take remedial action, the lawsuit states.
Ali also was subjected to taunts and name calling, the commission alleges. Employees and supervisors “criticized their cultural attire, made demeaning remarks about their appearance, identified them with terrorism and even claimed their ‘people’ engaged in bestiality,” according to the lawsuit.
The commission asks the court to enjoin Halliburton from discriminating on the basis of national origin and religion. It also seeks back pay for Snoubar and unspecified actual and punitive damages for both men.
During 8 years of the Obama regime, Muslims were encouraged to play the victim card whenever possible by government officials like this:

How many alleged anti-Muslim hate crimes are hoaxes? How often does a black person send himself racist hate mail or a Muslim woman falsely claim that whites tore off her hijab? No government agency counts these incidents, but now we can answer these questions.
Amren It is clear from the fine-grained sorting of data that is possible using filters, that of the 101 people who perpetrated hoaxes from June 2015 to December 2017, by far the largest number (44) fabricated acts of bias against blacks. The next most common “victim” categories of fake bias crimes were Middle Easterners/Muslims (17)
In the case of hate-crime hoaxes, black overrepresentation is much greater. As indicated in the graph below, over the last two-and-a-half years, on a per capita basis, blacks were 13.3 times more likely than whites to commit hate-crime hoaxes, and Middle Easterners were 34.7 times more likely.
Middle Easterners, at 69 times the white rate, were the group most likely to fabricate hoaxes of this kind.
Many incidents officially reported to the FBI as hate crimes are never solved because the perpetrator is never identified. A certain number of unsolved hate crimes are likely to be hoaxes like the incidents described in detail in our interactive map. In the absence of confirmation there is always the possibility that a bias crime is a fabrication intended to evoke sympathy for the group of which the “victim” is a member.
