My guess is that in the next few years, the U.S. will look more like an Arab country than the Middle East does, especially if the Dems get in the White House.
This is a clear case of government encouraging a specific religion, a violation of the Second Amendment. Where is the ACLU when we need them?
I think it is the 1st
I wonder why they don't accomodate Christians also? Maybe Christians should raise hell.
Besides Eid Al-Fitr, the other major Islamic festival is 'Id Al-Adha or Eid al-Adha (Arabic, "Festival of the Sacrifice"), which is also known as 'Id al-Qurban or al-'Id al-Kabir (Major Festival).
Eid al-Adha celebrates the completion of the hajj (pilgrimage) rites at Mina, Saudi Arabia, but is celebrated by Muslims throughout the world. Eid Al-Adha begins on the 10th of Dhu'l-Hijja, the last month of the Islamic calendar, and lasts for three days.
The Festival of the Sacrifice commemorates the God's gift of the ram in place of the biblical patriarch Ibrahim's (Abraham's) son Isma'il (Ishmael). (In Judaism and Christianity, the child in this story is Ishmael's brother Isaac.) During the festival, families that can afford to do so sacrifice an animal such as a sheep, goat, camel, or cow, and then divide the meat among themselves, the poor, and friends and neighbours.
Like 'Id al-Fitr, 'Id Al-Adha begins with communal prayer at daybreak on its first day. 'Id al-Adha is also a time for visiting with friends and family and for exchanging gifts.
Animal sacrifice. I would love to see the Left will explain their tolerance of this to their animal rights friends. We shall see, I suppose.
Having been in a few cabs around the country, a good supply of Speed Stick and air freshener would be a better choice.
Soon they will be adding beheading rooms and places to kill non-believers, complete with video cameras and an internet connection so they can post the pictures online without any trouble. /scarasm off
Turn air ports into masques, that should encourage people to fly...
Fire the freakin' cowards.
I've become very aware of simular words in just about every report reguarding American capitulation to any group/minority/program/authority .. whatever ... fill in the blank.
Someone is worried or afraid.
It sure as hell came from Muhammad's imagination and what he could steal from Christians, Jews and the local Pagan customs.
"3. Snorting water into the nostrils from the right hand, three times, to cleanse them of demons that Muslims believe reside there, clearing the passages of any mucous using the left hand."
They believe demons reside there....lol!
They are going to provide foot baths and Christians can't have a nativity scene!
Sadly; so true. Worst is that this appeasement is not for the 'average' Muslim who came here years ago; to have a better life. Nooooo; this new obsession to 'make nice' is a reachout to those who share or are inclined. . .to Islam's 'radical side'; to those whose agenda is to do just that; 'radicalize' America in their own 'religious image'.
That we are so accomodating only predicts our peril ahead.
We keep asking 'why' we are doing this; but little real outcry from the American community at-large and so to speak.
Oh. . .that's right. . .the rising class of citizens has been 'grown' by the worst 'free to be' Liberal Education. So; of course they would not discriminate. . .make judgments about others. . . 'We ARE. . .PC'!
While the mind-numbed slept. . . We should all fear, the rest of the story here. . .
As for the fearful and silent Muslims; well; if we could get PBS to allow their story to be aired; maybe more American's would wake up. But for the likes of PBS. . .and Lib-Lefties et al; that would be a bad thing'; for sure.
You’re such an intolerant ogre. I should’ve expected you to say something like that. /”offended” impression
Good ‘Ol Uncle Sap!!!!!!!!!!
For sure. . .eventually it will be. . .we will convert OR. ..Die; but hey. . .too late smart is just that.
Yet they wipe their backsides after defecating with their hand.
Mohammed is laughing his backside off in hell at all the nonsense he puts these drones through!
This isn't only a religion of 'peace' it's a religion of stupidity.
Now, as to our governmental faceless, politically (in)correct tin gods, accommodating evil followers of this religion, I ask: how long are we going to allow these liberal pansies to rule us and our institutions?
I feel very uncomfortable reading the word "throat" in an article about Muslims.
If the restrooms start installing foot baths, they better be clearly marked to separate them from floor-length urinals, or there might be more trouble.
Ah! KC is placing urinals on the floor.
The last place in the world I would want to stick my barefoot into a tub is in an airport. Can you imagine how many people are going to us this basin for other purposes besides what it was meant for. I say “I could care less if they have a basin.” Use at your own risk though...
Helping these cabbies every step of the way, no doubt.
The urinals might work well as foot washers for these people. Also, I’m glad to see they admit to harboring demons....even if they only admit they live up their noses. I thought maybe they lived up another part of their anatomy.
Jihad against infidels: doing the jobs that Americans won’t do.
I am just stunned that so many Americans, especially those in positions of leadership and influence, are so eager to surrender to the abject horror that is islam. It’s breath-taking.
AS a Kansas Citian I am wondering if we have gone too far.
Where can I put this uneaten Spam sandwich????????????
LOL! Me too, and I'm not even Catholic!
I think a more interesting approach would be to place a few slices of raw bacon in each basin. There is something about seeing a pork product in a sink used for ritual purification.
I’d just buy them a couple kitty litter pans and a couple bottles of Vichy water.
They would do well by taking to heart the words of somebody who knows of what she speaks.
"Why are we constructing places of worship for them inside our airports?" said an airport official who requested anonymity. "Why are we catering to their rituals? We don't do it for any other religion."
Indeed. This shit needs to stop NOW!
OUTSTANDING FReeper comments BUMP!
If it’s in a public restroom, and it’s got water in it, and it’s on the floor, then it’s a urinal and should be used for that purpose. If the muzzies want to wash their feet in the urinals that’s their business.
It is that. . .
As well, and more specifically; it is mind-numbing Liberalism. Politically-correct as per the 'false humility' it is rooted in.
The Liberal mind is sieve now. . .radical Islam. . .the non-war on terror. ..global warming and carbon credits; it all just 'feels' sooooo so good and so virtuous(!)
(Can Libs even spell 'discriminate'? The opposite, of course, being 'idiscriminate'. . .)
A Christian group needs to go in and demand chapels near every gate - to pray before getting on flights, or before getting a cab.
Can they take a M18A1 Claymore and make it look like a foot washing urn?
If all they can find to drive cabs are those aholes they don’t need cabs.
“Yet they wipe their backsides after defecating with their hand.”
Wow! I’ve never met a person who could defecate with their hand.
