She was by all accounts hardworking and well-liked. But when Halwai ran afoul of her Muslim co-workers, she was effectively fired. "I didn't say anything wrong. I was complimenting a colleague of mine," she said. Halawi, a Christian from Lebanon, was having a conversation in Arabic with a co-worker and praising a Muslim colleague when it was misinterpreted by another Muslim employee as an insult. The False Accusation "We were talking about something else and I said, 'Well, everyone is not like you. You are such an "alawi,' which means 'man of God' in any religion," she explained. "And unbeknownst to me my accuser was standing quite close by and he just started jumping and shouting and in front of colleagues and passengers and everyone started telling me, 'You are insulting Islam,'" she continued. It sounds like a ridiculous accusation, but rumors began to spread among Heathrow's many Muslim employees that Halawi was anti-Muslim. She was seen as a problem and eventually fired.

She said "it was all a total lie." to read more click here: cbn.com
