Muslim footbaths spark another fight
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | October 2, 2007 | Bob Unruh

Indianapolis airport officials have announced plans to add footbaths for Muslims who wish to wash before their five-times-daily prayer rituals, and that's just too much for one pastor, who has called for residents to organize and protest such an establishment of religion.

The issue has been appearing in more and more airports and other public facilities in recent weeks, where Muslim immigrants are a growing segment of those who drive cabs, and spend hours waiting on arriving passengers for their fares.

Several years ago, officials with Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix boasted of providing a new "customer service" by providing such footwashing facilities for Muslims. "The cab drivers were asking for more washroom facilities as a group, and a majority of them wanted some place to wash before they pray," Deborah Ostreicher, public information officer, told the Arizona Republic. "This is a way we thought we could reach out as a customer service."

Similar facilities have been built at Kansas City International, although airport officials repeatedly have insisted the washing facilities are for anyone for any purpose that is aided by the presence of seating and low faucets.

One editorial writer called it "creeping dhimmitude," where America is joining the "global community of nations dominated by Islam," and now Rev. Jerry Hillenburg, pastor at Hope Baptist Church in Indianapolis, says he's going to be working to halt such changes at the city's airport.

And this is just the first bite of the elephant, a step towards Islam's desired goal which is to thrust the entire world under one single Islamic caliphate under Sharia law."

"When will the P.C. bureaucrats get a REAL clue from history and religious studies that appeasement is the WORST way to counter the growing threat from Islamic radicals? To the P.C. crowd: 'Muslim appeasement' [equals] 'showing weakness and thus vulnerability,'" she said.

Sky Harbor has the resources to install footbaths but not enough to monitor a holding cell?

Personally, I like when they install these. I find you get less “splash back” than you do with a standard urinal.

I wonder if the Muslims consider any non-Muslim using their footbaths for "any purpose" to be an insult to allah, worthy of death?

They are specific muslim facilities, theres no doubt about it.

It will end badly, some tired man or woman will attempt to wash their feet after being stuck for hours at the airport, and they will beat the hell out of the infidel.

The only way to avoid any confrontation on it is to ban any non muslim from the facility,its gonna come to a head.

You can only push so far before Americans shove back.

Usually the standard line for these airport and college footbaths is “oh, these aren’t for religious purposes, we just don’t want people who wash their feet to hurt themselves.”

How long do you think it’ll be before non-muslims are arrested who use them to wash their feet, or heaven forbid expectorate in them like they do in regular sinks?

I imagine hocking a loogy in one will be considered a hate crime...

as a kid, I worked on a dairy farm...we had footbaths for the cows too right at the gate from the concrete barnyard to the barn...it was a great way to disinfect their feet...cuz well, cows walk around in their own manure all day and don’t wash their feet...

I read somewhere that the janitors are having a horrible time cleaning up the toilet stall at the Fermi Lab facilities because of how our Muslim brothers stand on the toilet seats to poop. What’s next? Holes in the floor and we can call that progress.

They would have to clean their pants if the cleaning facility was sand. Sand is allowed to clean if water isn’t available. The water is there, but there isn’t a basin, so sand would be allowed.

When this is no longer chic we can use them for urinals... with “splash-guards”, of course.

And who is at the heart of this? Who is it that makes it their mission to implement as much of a religion and culture utterly alien to the American landscape?

Could it be Liberals?

The Muzziez are only a symptom of the problem, at least right now, as are Mexicans and any other readily identifiable group that can be used to help destroy the existing culture and social cohesion of the United States.

As with so many other seemingly disconnected issues, this one is sold as noble Libs trying to make the stated promise of the Unites States live up to it’s rhetoric. More supposed courage from the hopelessly narcissistic. The reality is of course that the Libs are only interested in promoting those things that corrode and destroy the existing culture or give them additional control.

Just one more facet of the war that is raging under peoples noses, but most people prefer to ignore the unpleasant task of challenging the Lib filth and choose instead to focus on the surface challenges created by the Libs - Muzziez, Mexicans, gays et al.

It’s time to focus energy on the root of the problem - The fifth column known as Liberals. Unless and until they are challenged and dismanteled the other problems like Muzziez ans Mexis will only grow exponentially, aided and abetted by the Lib filth.

I never heard of these things before 9/11. Since 9/11 there has been a rush to promote Muslim religion and admit Muslim immigrants. A Muslim wannabe nation?

So what happens when someone who has to go really bad goes into the bathroom, and all the urinals and all the stalls are occupado? Me, I’m pissing in the footbath. Is that a “hate crime?”

This footbath thing - never heard of it until recently - on THIS site. Here in the UK there’s the usual demands by muslims along with private & public entities pandering to them, but nothing about footbaths. Are these things common in islamic countries? Would have thought a number of them don’t have running water much less expensive specialist fittings such as these.

They don't use toilet paper either - next time you see one of these reprobates try taking a close look at their left hand - specifically under the fingernails.

I could relate a true life experience at this point, but I don't think I need to be more graphic now do I?

"Are these things common in islamic countries?"

I posted a link above to a post entitled "All Your Toilets Are Belong To Us" that answers that very question.

Last night, on another FR thread (about the banning of holiday celebrations in a school district in Michigan) I asked if anyone (on that thread) had the link to the ‘muslim percent of population.’ It is a listing, in increments, as to what happens to a society when muslins are 5%, 10%, 20%, etc. I was surprised that the Michigan district in question was a stunning 30% muslim. If anybody can link or post that listing it would add much to this discussion (and I will bookmark it).

Just let it be widely known that Jews are using the baths to wash their feet and the Muslims will refuse to use them. They are open to everyone aren’t they?

Why we are letting these 7th century cultist freaks into America in the first place is beyond me. We are rapidly sowing the seeds of our own destruction. Can anybody tell me what advantage there is to allow these people in?

Similar facilities have been built at Kansas City International, although airport officials repeatedly have insisted the washing facilities are for anyone for any purpose that is aided by the presence of seating and low faucets.

Strangely enough, in all the hundreds of discussions I have read on the internet, I had never seen this statement before.

Suppose I had medical instructions to rub lard, five times a day on a medical condition in my feet...? So long as I am as neat about use of the facilities as anyone else, I am free to do so, correct?

Funny thing that.
In every discussions in which muslims have taken part, they make it crystal clear that the facilities are for the exclusive use of muslims...

Not that that means anything, officially and legally, but the first time that they attempt to assert that exclusivity by force, they have solved the problem for the rest of us...
