Skip to comments.A MUSLIM bus driver told stunned passengers to get off so he could PRAY
Posted on 03/29/2008 12:00:46 PM PDT by knighthawk
The white Islamic convert rolled out his prayer mat in the aisle and knelt on the floor facing Mecca.
Passengers watched in amazement as he held out his palms towards the sky, bowed his head and began to chant.
One, who filmed the man on his mobile phone, said: He was clearly praying and chanting in Arabic.
We thought it was a wind-up at first, like Jeremy Beadle.
The 21-year-old plumber added: He looked English and had a London accent. He looked like a Muslim convert, with a big, bushy beard.
Eventually everyone started complaining. One woman said, What the hell are you doing? Im going to be late for work.
After a few minutes the driver calmly got up, opened the doors and asked everyone back on board.
But they saw a rucksack lying on the floor of the red single-decker and feared he might be a fanatic. So they all refused.
The passenger added: One chap said, Im not getting on there now.
An elderly couple also looked really confused and worried.
After seeing that no-one wanted to get on he drove off and we all waited until the next bus came about 20 minutes later. I was left totally stunned. It made me not want to get on a bus again.
The bizarre event unfolded on the number 81 in Langley, Berkshire, at around 1.30pm on Thursday.
The passenger said he rang the bus firm to complain but claimed it did not believe him.
He said: They asked me, Are you sure?. Then they said they would get back to me, but they werent taking me seriously at all.
Yesterday the driver, who said his name was Hrun, told The Sun: I asked everyone to get off because I needed to pray. I was running late and had not had time.
I pray five times a day as a Muslim but I dont normally ask people to get off the bus to do it.
Muslims pray at pre-dawn, noon, afternoon, sunset and evening.
A spokesperson for bus company London United said: We are aware of a reported incident involving our route 81.
We are currently undertaking a full investigation into the matter.
What does English look like?
If people want on or off this list, please let me know.
Pink slip him.
Translation: you'll never hear anything about the incident again.
Just carry a ham sandwich on the bus-and while he’s praying offer him a bite.
I wonder what kind of sensitivity training will be required of the people who spoke about the incident in this story.
When the muzzie lays out his prayer rug, throw some Oscar Mayer(tm) Real Bacon Bits on it.
(Comes in a convenient pocket-sized 3 oz resealable package.)
They think they own the world. Time to jump heavy on these islamojerks!
That is what needs to start happening.
England is the land of suicide.
What's to investigate? Fire his ass and move on. But, the Brits will likely pull another Neville Chamberlain and play the PC game and cave in with similar consequences. People never learn the old axiom: Give an inch, lose a mile.
The passengers paid their fares and should not have got off the bus before their stop. They could have stood around the flying carpet for whatever educational opportunities might have been present.
Bull. He did this deliberately to see if he could get away with disrupting peoples lives, using his religion as an excuse. Its a test.
It always is. And the Brits failed.
These converts are trojan horses. They are usually more fanatic than the ones born into the cult.
BARF ALERT: Turning Muslim in Texas.
Very good! You know, we really need to set up our own "religion" (cult) that worships swine. This will be the only way to gain the same religious protections that the other nutty cult enjoys. Then, when these nuts do this stuff, we can whip out our ham sandwiches and dried pig parts. I'm only half kidding.
“They think they own the world. Time to jump heavy on these islamojerks!”
They will own it because the West handed it to them on a platter. I feel sadness for the brave men and women who fight in Iraq and Afghanistan as their homes are given away by the cowardly politicians who sent them to these countries in the first place.
His butt should have been fired. Also, if he wouldn’t drive the damn bus one of the passengers should have rolled along until his stop then another passenger take over. Then the stupid islamic could pray his a** off all day without a thought to other people and his job.
Just your typical white person :(
While it may be hard to describe what English “looks like” in words I can assure you that the look does indeed exist.
I lived in England for 2 years. When I walked into any group of people the vast majority knew I was an American before I ever spoke a word. Why? Because I looked American to them. Then of course I could also spot another American in the group before they spoke because they looked American and not English
Thanks for stating the obvious.
Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.
Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called “religious rights.”
When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to “the reasonable” Muslim demands for their “religious rights,” they also get the other components under the table. Here's how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).
France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris — car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam — Mohammed cartoons).
Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:
Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of “Dar-es-Salaam” — the Islamic House of Peace — there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%
Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.
“Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, “The Haj”
It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

Don’t you just love these heart warming stories about public transportation.
CCH Concealed Carry Ham
Not a problem. The passnegers should have thrown him off the bus and someone should have taken over driving and driven to the nearest Police Station and turned the bus in. That would get the bus company’s attention and put an end to this nonsenese.
I don't believe that for a minute. He was told to do this by his Imam--to break "new ground" for Muslim "civil rights". They do this systematically all over the world. They did it at meat processing plants with Somalis in America, they tried it at the Minneapolis airport. Foot baths, burkas, food, etc. This is a coordinated effort, backed by serious money.
Well, the Brits are reaping what they have sewn.
What does English look like?
except for the unusually fine teeth on this male this is what a typicall "English " may look like
Yeah, but they had no way of knowing if he had a bomb, and was saying his good-bye cruel world/hello Allah prayers.
The bus company needs to fire the bone head or give him a job sweeping floors. It's unacceptable to screw with the lives of a bus load of paying customers to deal with your personal religious desires. Clearly, being a Muslim and a bus driver are not a compatible mix.
You gotta like the way British talk.
They look like foreigners to me.
It's hard to understand them because I'm an American, so I dont speak English.
Hmmm. On the other hand, if a group isolates itself from everyone else, the general population tends not to develop an affection for itas in the familiar, "Some of my best friends are . . ."
An isolated group may gain influence by being united, but it becomes vulnerable through being distinctive in appearance, language, dress, and style of walking and socializing. Most important, most of its members become relatively ignorant of the ways and cues of the culture at large. They really stick out. (Ask the European Jews.)
In a crisis, such a group is much easier to identify, isolate, and deal with. The future, especially in Europe, could prove "interesting" in a number of ways. It is a mistake to count out the possibility of European anger and counterstrike. The jihadist spirit is like a mad dogit cannot help itself. Its very insistence on evil and killing could unite the populace very easily in the absence of any surviving Christian identity. Organized aggression can certainly be helped by a living military and religious identidywhich Europe now lacks. But its real source is the human heart, and it never goes away. We should all pray, because it is likely that evil deeds will be done on every side.
After seeing Fitnaa masterpiece that will not be successfully suppressedI am reminded of the words of a great man, as near as I remember them: "This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
Looks like “Old English” to me.
>In a crisis, such a group is much easier to identify, isolate, and deal with.<
That is very interesting. Thanks for posting!
Not what it used to look like.
I wonder how many times over the years they voted for Labour. The chicken have come home to roost, as JW would say.
The right to halt everything and pray has been one of the Muslim demands that is hardest to deny for governments, as they don't want to deny religious freedom. Next comes the demand to have a loud minaret blaring out the call to prayer. It is our right! We need more mosques, too so the call can be heard everywhere. It is our right! Or are you against freedom?
When it gets to the point where you hear that call all over your city, you can pretty much stick a fork in yourselves, you're done.
Got to do some research on just how, in Islamic doctrine, contact with pig molecules by a Muslim results in his forever being denied entry into paradise. Someone posted that it’s not like a mullah can issue fatwa saying, “as a jihadi, don’t worry if the infidels throw pig parts at you, just continue your attack and paradise will be yours!”. Contamination by pig is seriously fearsome to ROPers.
Hmmm..... “Pig products: the Muslim kryptonite?”
But you know, this bus incident may be one of those things that only happen once. In the wake of Flight 93, the likelihood of passenger counterattack may discourage future bus jihadis.
I agree it was a test. They keep pushing and pushing, time we started pushing back.
Yes, they should have joined in by reciting the Lord's Prayer aloud while holding hands in a circle around the mat.
It always is. And the Brits failed.
Last time I was in London, 2001, I was riding on a Tube train behind two young men who were reading aloud from a Bible, obviously trying to evangelize. A uniformed officer made them stop.
They can test this and test that, but they have no way of knowing if the result of the test might be the same next time. They can miscalculate and are pushing their scientific method somewhat farther than they would if they were more mature than ordinary children.
