It would be really easy for someone to mistake one of these for a toilet.

Or a dog-drinking bowl.

The correct response to this sillyness would be for Jews and Gentiles alike to also avail themselves of these footbaths whenever they felt like it.

If there is no outcry from the Muslims, then fair cop, it’s an acceptable spend for non-religious purposes.

They never had footbaths when I was going thru college: it might have been nice to have a good ol’ soak in Epsom Salts and Tiger Balm Ointment whilst cramming for Economics...

EEEWWWW! Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t want to wash my feet where a zillion other people wash THEIR feet. Or accidentally mistake the foot washing thing for a low urinal. Or a spitoon.

I was once at a cocktail party with the Superintendent of the Oakland Public School District who had just returned from Paris. He was amazed that bathrooms in France had these drinking fountains so close to the floor.

I had to excuse myself since he was a major client at the time and didn’t want to burst out laughing in front of him...

Given that the ACLU has fought every religious accomodation by public institutions for the last fifty years their take on this is a laugher.

What’s different about accomodations for Muslims? When Muslims don’t get their way they tend to plant bombs.

This is an example of the ACLU at their gutless worst.

If anyone thinks that this caving in will prevent a dirty bomb attack, or worse, that person is mistaken. No amount of special privileges, or apologies for 9/11 will appease the head-choppers.

Let them have their footbaths. Most people are so fed up with this kind of horses$$t they’ll be peeing in them, pooping in them, pouring Coke in them, dropping itching powder in them. Think about it! I’ll bet all of you can think of something fun to sneak into a Muslim footbath. Dead bugs, worms, poison ivy, poison sumac, poison oak.

Isn’t it fun!?

I posted a few stories on this when it came out last month - one of my blog postings got the attention of Instapundit and the story blew up after that.

You can read the original post entitled "All Your Toilets Are Belong To Us" here FRiends

All Your Toilets are Belong to Us

The next post below shows you clearly what the "foot basins" installed in the Phoenix airport look like compared with ones in a mosque - they are the same.

And they belong in a mosque not in a public facility and built at taxpayer expense!

The American taxpayer is going to now pay for all of this ... this is only the beginning FRiends.

I can kill this off inside of a week.

Local Christians should arrange to have someone standing by at each footwashing station 24/7 to do the actual foot washing. Hey, Jesus washed His disciples’ feet, right; leading by example?

If you fill the footbaths with sulfuric acid, it will help to prevent the transmission of foot diseases.

(giggle!) fantastic use of Imagery: classic! Close your eyes and you can picture it... ouch!

I use Tiger Balm Red for sore muscles after slinging around concrete (my latest occupation) or training with my Guardian Angels. That, and Arnica cream, will cure all that ails ya, guaranteed! And as you say, to be used sparingly else nasty consequences!

The Tiger Balm linament, tho’, is a real treat: it is a clear oil, and it comes in a really KEWL hexagonal glass bottle that allows ONE DROP out at a time. Three drops only is more than plenty for a foot-bath! Use with Epsom Salts: ideal if you spend much time on your feet.

(Ought to be Standard Issue to the Troops: one tiny bottle lasts forever, and would be just what the doctor ordered after a hard day’s Patrol.)

Has the added advantage of making your boots, sox, and sneakers smell minty-fresh for days: no doubt by killing off all the greeblies that would otherwise cause them to stink.

Airport Toilet Proselytization

Remember the Hare Krishnas? These guys were the masters of airport proselytization and all done under the guise of "freedom of speech". Times were different then, Americans were free to object to a pack of filthy unkempt hippies conducting their religious rituals and hitting you up for cash in a public airport without the fear of being labled a hateful bigot or a "Hare Krishnaphobe", alas but times have changed.

Exit Hare Krishna, enter Islam. Now that the hippies have all but left the airport concourses the Somali cab drivers have taken their place and entered the airport toilets. Now while you are sitting there attempting to relieve yourself, you can listen to a filthy unkempt Somali cab driver conduct his religious rituals. Object to this intrusion and you risk being labeled a hateful bigot or an Islamaphobe. My how times have changed.

Conservative Beach Girl reports that Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix is the latest airport in the United States to capitulate to Muslim religious demands. This time though it isn't the cab drivers who pay for the additions required to ensure that the restrooms comply with Islamic jurisprudence, but the airport passengers who will be forced to pay.

The story on Kansas City's prior capitulation might have caused a minor uproar, but the Islamization of America and the dhimmitude of the nation's people continues unabated and fueled by America's ongoing "conflict of conscience" in dealing with the political and sociological aspects of an political ideology that is enshrined and cloaked in nothing more than a facade of religion. It is the inability to filet the political aspects from the religion that will eventually lead to the bloody internal conflicts America will face in dealing with this "war of cultures" in the months and years ahead.

Read carefully what Ahmed Tharwat the host of Belahdan, an Arab-American television show (also funded by American taxpayers) has to say on the issue.

"...Moslems may complain about a lot of issues, but I do not think they complain nearly enough about their daily torture at public bathrooms, where they provide you with condoms as an incentive for casual clean sex but are severely under equipped for a thorough washing... Water is the essential element for a thorough cleaning—toilet paper will not suffice. You can say all you want about Muslims, but when it comes to the cultural issues of washing and personal hygiene requirements, we are very meticulous, especially with bathroom rituals...[sic]"

There you have it, the subtle sophistry of the Muslim demands that highlights the dichotomy between the clean and the unclean, the Muslim and the infidel.

Emboldened by our nations' collective "conflict of conscience" and our impotence brought on by political correctness, a haughty and pompous Mr. Ahmed Tharwat and his co-religionists are ever too eager to educate and indoctrinate the filthy Western infidels on the hygienic benefits of Islamic cleansing rituals and in the process hopefully gain a few converts. You don't need to visit a mosque now to learn about Islam now, just visit the restrooms at the Minneapolis and Phoenix airports.

Not only does our nation encourage the dualistic dogma proselytized by Mr. Ahmed Tharwat and his co-religionists by our kowtowing to this endless stream of "demands", but now we pay for it as well.

I never thought I would live to see the day when Americans would become so desirous of somehow breaching the cultural chasm that divides the Muslim world and the Western world that they would willingly sacrifice their own convictions and ardent beliefs on the altar of political correctness.

Is there really any hope this time for a people who have been silenced by political correctness and who live in fear of being labled an Islamophobe should they dare to question the subversion of their own culture and nation?

If it looks like a urinal then I’ll be using it like one.

The airport in Málaga, Spain used to have those old fashioned urinals that went down to the floor. I was somewhat taken aback when I saw on old Arab sitting on the floor, washing his feet in the urinal. He was doing this despite other men in the room using the urinals for their intended purpose. Evidently, he needed ablution really bad.

Yes. You get them in two flavours, the red and the white.

I use them to clear congested noses. A little dab on a cloth handkerchief and you can take whiffs throughout the day.

It was this one time that I applied it directly onto my nose, when I discovered that it becomes much more effective at fighting congestion. Then, I applied some more, and even more, and the next day, I woke up with a red line on my nose. The subsequent day, the skin fell off. Nothing drastic, it was just like lifting off a very, very thin, dry scab. No marks, but it did have a tingling sensation for a while. Ever since, I go very easy on it with sensitive skin.

The smell and feel is quite refreshing, and I guess that’s how it works, by distracting your mind from the aches.

Either that or he had a bad case of Athlete’s Foot. Urine is a well-known and extremely effective treatment for this and other fungal infections. True.

"I wonder how well the Muzzies will like a unisex footwashing basin?

They won't and shortly afterwards you are going to have to pay to have them installed for Muslim females as well. You won't be able to refuse then, because you will have already submitted to their initial demands.

If you refuse, you will be accused of discrimination against Muslim females and rightly so.

But this is only the first step FRiends. There is a long list of demands that have been categorized to be fully implemented by the year 2020.

Some of the demands will seem innocuous to you and you will be eager to accommodate them. And example will be that children's stories and books in schools cannot mention pigs because it offensive to Muslims etc. "The Three Little Pigs"

Later that seemingly benign request (demand) will be taken further to include that no pork can be served in public schools.

So far Americans and Europeans have taken to their impending dhimmitude like a duck to water.
