Airport with footbaths turns to intimidation
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | September 23, 2007 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 09/23/2007 4:23:27 AM PDT by Man50D

An official with Kansas City International Airport apparently has tried intimidation in an effort to eliminate discussion about the recently installed footbaths, after repeated denials they are intended for Muslims to perform their footwashing ritual before their prayers.

"That's the way I perceived it," Kevin Peterson told WND in a telephone interview.

Peterson said he shares his name with a union steward for the Air Traffic Controllers Union at Kansas City's airport, but he is not the same individual. He was sent an e-mail from airport spokesman Joe McBride, who assumed he was writing to the union steward.

"The Indianapolis Star reports that the Indianapolis Airport is installing Muslim foot-washing basins in an upcoming renovation," Peterson wrote. "The paper says that Muslim footwashing basins are already installed at KCI.

"Are you planning to issue a denial as to the purpose of the KCI basins to the Indianapolis Star?" he asked.

"I assume you are the Kevin Peterson who is the union steward for the air traffic controllers union," the e-mail signed, electronically, with McBride's name, said.

"Point number one on the first e-mail suggests that your [sic] are in the control tower near the cab facility. I read your previous e-mail on this topic. Your stance is not in the best interest of the airport and the federal government, your employer," the e-mail said.

If they want to wash their feet, stick them in the toilet and flush.

Okay, so why can’t we find enough foot-washing Baptists to take up all the basins? Let the Muzzies stand in line.

I’d do it! And I’m not a Baptist.

What is REALLY FUNNY about this is the take of the ACLU. Since the early sixties that organization has been all over Christians and Jews anytime there’s any kind of public accomodation with their religions.

Now, suddenly, public accomodation with Islam is just fine. What’s up with that?

Spitting is too unsanitary. But you can fill your car wash bucket

“”Recently, a small expansion was made to the building,” McBride told WND at the time. “Included were wash areas used for any wash purpose by any of the users, including filling car wash buckets.”

First off, the ACLU isn't really "anti-religion" so much as "anti-Christian" (and to a far lesser extent, "anti-Jew," i.e. they only support Jewish religious expression if it bothers Christians). Secondly, they're bullies, and like to flex their muscles and beat up their opponents without actually confronting them. And finally, they're cowards and don't want to get their heads sawed off.

Twenty years living in a Muslim majority country and I have NEVER seen these "foot basins" installed in bathrooms -

I have never seen them anywhere in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, or Singapore. If Muslims want to wash their feet before prayers then they do it at a mosque - and THAT is where these "foot basins" belong!!!!

I am so disgusted at my country that they would continue to shame themselves like this - Please America grow a spine and get of your knees. Have you any dignity?

There was an article in the Indy Star about this , a couple weeks ago, but we can't post from the Indy Star here.

They are installing foot baths to accomodate the muslim cab drivers in the new terminal.

According to the article, many of the drivers are currently using a lower level restroom in the current terminal. Some of the drivers stated there amazement that others would stare while they perfomed there ablutions....

1) Wash their hands

2) Wash each nostril out

3) Wash their face with the right hand, then run the rigt hand over their hair.

4) Wash each ear wit their forefinger

5) Wash their feet

And they wonder WHY people stare at them as they line up 5 times a day to take a whores bath in a PUBLIC facility .

Also those who are currently so uncomfortable they can't use the rest room for this crap are doing it in the parking garage with bottled water, aint that a pretty sight.

If all the "wall appliances" are being used, that "footbath" may be an answer.

Women could ruin this for them if they’d protest by using these facilities at least once a day. The old contamination-by-female ploy.
Unfortunately, the only women smart enough to object to creeping dhimmitude, are conservatives with too much dignity to crash a men’s room.

Pour some bacon grease in them, or throw in some pork rines.

That should take care of the problem.

I wonder how all this foot washing five times a day is accommodated in the Middle East? I doubt they have special foot washing stations in sufficient numbers.

When my father worked in Saudi & Kuwait 45-55 years ago, the (Bedouin) customs were a bit different.

The ablutions involved, primarily, genital cleansing; and, if water was scarce...usually...rubbing with 'clean' sand was the acceptable substitute.

Naturally, if they could, they would also 'appropriate' company water, either by deliberately causing a line to leak; or by turning on a tap, which they had some kind of a problem remembering to turn off again, before walking away.

It sure would be a shame if infidel travelers kept a small amount of concrete mix in their pocket to deposit in the footbath before flying.

It sure would be a shame if this was repeated 20 or 30 times, rendering the footbath inoperable.

The Muslim population we are appeasing here, are the radicals of course. And the more we submit. . .the more they take. They surely had no idea, America would be quite so easy.

We can thank our Leadership, who are now 'comotose' as per Liberal-induced PC; and so no longer care to distinguish our Constitution from Sharia law. . .

We therefore free massage parlors for the Hedonists, chapels for each denomination of Christians, Temples for the Jews and Buddhists, separate chambers for the Wichans, and an empty room for the Atheists who want to get away from the deists. It will calm them before they fly. Where’s the separation of Church and State that’s so popular with the pinkos? I guess all we need are a bunch of Presbyterians to blow up Manhattan and threaten to bomb the United States out of existence and they will be entitled to their own ritual places too.

In which terminal is this? I’m at KCI every few weeks and I haven’t seen one (not that I’ve looked).

Somehow, it just reminds me of an asian squat toilet (not that it looks like one). Wonder if it’ll work the same?
