ISLAM: TWO WOMAN BATHE FULL-CLOTHED,LIFEGUARD MAKES THEM LEAVE
(AGI) - Bolzano, Italy, 7 September - Two Muslim women went into a swimming pool fully clothed - wearing a tunic and the veil as their religion demands - to accompany their children as they were bathing. Other swimmers protested to the lifeguard who immediately asked them to get out of the water. This took place at the Lido di Bolzano.
The Council has spoken about 'respect for the rules' and 'health reasons'. The leaders of the Muslim community in Bolzano understand the ban on swimming in a chador, but at the same time have asked for women only pools as there are in Muslim countries.
The two women, accompanied to Bolzano's lido by their children and a man, after having taken the sun while dressed, wanted to refresh themselves. They approached the pool, to follow their children, entered the water and then faced the 'revolt' of a large number of bathers.
"Things like that should no longer happen. There is a rule. One cannot get into the pool while clothed, but only in a swimming costume - argued Giustina Marinucci, Bolzano Council's director of sport. "I respect the Muslim religion, but they need to adapt, as we do when we enter their mosques. There are hygienic reasons for the ban on entering a pool while dressed."
Aboulkheir Breigheche, the head of the Muslim community said: "In Italy it may be necessary to create pools just for men and just for women. They are free not to respect Islam, but the religion permits bathing just in costume only if there are just women present." (AGI)
It's all about forcing the infidels.
Ah, the joys of diversity.
Tell them to take a tip in their bathtub.
Tell them to take a tip in their bathtub.
I am about as liberal as it comes on immigration, but so help me, if it were up to me I would put a stop to immigration from Muslim countries. Until Islam cleans up its act, I don't want any more of it in my country.
I thought I had outgrown my urge to pee in pools for over 4 decades. Guess I was wrong...
Throw them out of the pool and out of the country if you can.
Clothing masks the yellow?
In the West we have different rules and customs. We could emulate muslim countries' behavior and have you beaten or jailed for failing to follow them.
In our own countries, these rules and customs are not negotiable.
I think the pool rules of Italy are alot easier to live with than the draconian rules of Saudi Arabia.
If Muslims don't like it they can go back to their sand heaven. I have had enough hearing about their stupid rights.
Does not appear that anyone thought of this simple, obvious solution!
This bespeaks an unfortunate arrogance; where the expectations are that the world conforms to the Muslim rule; period.
Join them. . .or suck it up - so to speak.
Actually there are plenty of people whom I would urge to wear more clothing in and around pools and the beach...
Who knows when or whether they washed their clothes? Gruesome to contemplate...
I like a straightforward all encompassing summary of the situation like yours.
Why don't they build their own stinkin' pool?
Aboulkheir Breigheche, the head of the Muslim community said: "In Italy it may be necessary to create pools just for men and just for women..."
Here it comes.
It's come to the point that only a boatload of airline tickets is going to resolve the Moslem issue in the U.S.
They do not wish to blend into our society. I thought that was a prerequisit to coming here legally.
They need to go home, where their life choices are honored and appreciated. It is not for us to conform to them.
The absurdity grows daily.
Reminds me of a post lapmpooning the "Ask the Imam" site: Woman: "My husband hardly ever beats me any more *sob*"
Imam: "First, in order to help you-Are you a woman, or a goat?"
Woman: "I am not sure, because I always wear this blue thing. Sniff..sniff.. A GOAT, I think..."
Italy also offers fountains, used here by Anita Ekberg fully clothed, more or less.
Apparently he never heard the saying, "when in Rome....." Maybe this idiot needs to open his own pool for Muslim women....or maybe he AND his women should just get the h**l out and go to one of those lovely Islamic utopias that allows little interaction between men and women.
