Muslim woman says Starbucks barista wrote ‘ISIS’ on her cup — she wants employee and manager fired

A Muslim woman plans to file a discrimination lawsuit over what a Starbucks barista wrote on her cup because she says it was meant as a racist insult.

The woman has only given her first name, Aishah, out of safety concerns. She says that the incident occurred at a Starbucks inside a Target store in St. Paul, Minnesota, on July 1.

She says that she told the barista her name several times, but was shocked when she saw what they wrote on her cup. She wore a hijab at the time of the incident.

“When I first received the drink I was in shock that in this day and age something like this could be written,” Aishah said.

The 19-year-old wants the employee and the manager of the store fired over the incident.

In a media briefing about the incident, Jaylani Hussein, executive director for the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said that the manager was dismissive about the complaint.

Hussein said the manager told Aishah, “What is the issue? People get their names wrong all the time,” and gave her a new drink and a $25 gift card. He plans to file a discrimination lawsuit on Aishah’s behalf with the U.S. Department of Human Rights.

A statement from Target to WCCO-TV said that they investigated the incident.

“We have investigated the matter and believe that it was not a deliberate act but an unfortunate mistake that could have been avoided with more clarification,” the statement read. “We’re taking appropriate actions with the team member, including additional training, to ensure this does not occur again.”

Hussein compared the use of the word ISIS to that of the n-word.

“The fact of the matter here is that using this word for us would be the same as a Black man today, being used the N-word, or anything else that would be offensive,” he claimed.

Here’s a local news video about the incident:

New video shows coalition forces demolishing ISIS tunnel system in Iraq

The United States military released a video Wednesday showing coalition aircraft destroying an Islamic State tunnel system in the Hamrin Mountains in Iraq.

The Hamrin Mountains are known to be an ISIS “safe heaven,” according to the report. “Intricate tunnel and cave systems” in the mountains are regularly used by ISIS fighters to smuggle weapons, plot terror attacks, and move senior officials.

By spring 2019, the ISIS caliphate suffered complete territorial defeat as fighters were ousted from their last remaining land territory in Syria, but the terrorist organization continues to operate in covert.

“The presence of Daesh in Iraq continues to diminish, thanks to the efforts and sacrifices of our Iraqi partner forces,” Maj. Gen. Eric Hill, commanding general of the Special Operations Joint Task Force — Operation Inherent Resolve, said in a statement.

“Strikes like these help our Iraqi partners maintain relentless pressure on the Daesh scourge, no matter where these terrorists hide,” he added.

The report added that the airstrikes, which are estimated to have killed 5-10 ISIS fighters, were conducted in coordination with the Iraqi government. Iraqi security forces were able to recover ISIS documents, electronic devices, and various other equipment in a ground search of the targeted area post-strike.

ISIS issues travel advisory to terrorists to avoid ‘land of the epidemic’

Islamist terror group ISIS issued a travel advisory to its members to avoid Europe because of the coronavirus, calling it the “land of the epidemic.”

Homeland Security Today reported the message from the editors of the terror group’s weekly newsletter, Al-Naba.

“The healthy should not enter the land of the epidemic and the afflicted should not exit from it,” the message read.

The full-color infographic also claimed that the numbers of those who had perished from the disease was much greater than what was reported.

They added that China was “claiming the recovery and discharge of some patients with the disease… to reassure people, and to reduce the catastrophic effects.”

The coronavirus epidemic originated in Wuhan, China, but has spread worldwide. Hardest hit have been the countries of Italy and France. In the United States, officials have called on Americans to practice “social distancing” and avoid crowds in order to prevent the spread of the virus.

In a previous Al-Naba newsletter, ISIS acknowledged that many Muslims were calling the virus a “punishment from God Almighty.”

ISIS also exhorted their members to “cover the mouth when yawning and sneezing.”
