London's Olympic Park toilets to turn away from Mecca out of respect for Islamic law
Daily Mail ^ | 9-24-2008 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 09/25/2008 8:37:29 PM PDT by Westlander

Toilet facilities are being built at London's Olympic Park so Muslims will not have to face Mecca while sitting on the loo.

The Islamic religion prohibits Muslims from facing the Kiblah - the direction of prayer - when they visit the lavatory.

Do they even have toilets over there? No I do not think i would be a muslim. You have to check your compass to pee. What would you do at the north pole? If the world is really round how can you point the right way? I get it they have to lie on their back and shoot strait up.

Why don't we just blow up Mecca so that it is everywhere so that Islamics can't take a dump and end up imploding. /s

Well, that’s just dumb. It means when they pray, they’ll be facing toilets.

Stage 1:
Start immigrating - move into a country quietly

Stage 2:
Begin starting churches: “learning centers”
community helps: food etc.

Stage 3:
Political activism: demanding rights, denounce
derogatory comments/press etc.

Stage 4:
Get elected, pass laws favoring rights etc. move toward
political majority

Stage 5:
Political control, Sharia Law

Does that mean that the user can launch a fatwa toward Mecca or does that mean that when the user launches a stream of hope and change that it is aimed at Mecca?

Does it come with music along with the swival loo?

Here We Go Loopy Loo

Here we go loopy loo
Here we go loopy light
Here we go loopy loo
All on a Saturday night
You put your right arm in
You put your right arm out
You shake it a little, a little
And turn yourself about
You put your left arm in
You put your left arm out
You shake it a little, a little
And turn yourself about
You put your right leg in
You put your right leg out
You shake it a little, a little
And turn yourself about
You put your left leg in
You put your left leg out
You shake it a little, a little
And turn yourself about
You twirl your whole self in
You twirl your whole self out
You shake it a little, a little
And turn yourself about

So they can’t poop when facing Mecca? Do they stand up to pee?

Swivel toilets ... now that concept would solve many problems. Would have saved the UK millions.

Maybe if the ROP recognized that the Earth was round, they would understand that they aren't facing Mecca, even when they are "looing" due east.

Their gaze and their "dropping the kids off at the pool" are facing some place well above the horizon of the sacred site.

This is pretty stupid from all sides ...

1) they are portable toilets, what’s the big deal in re-aiming them if someone is willing to pay for it ?

2) Given the distance from London to Mecca the odds are exceedingly small that whatever site line you chose for your privates would be on target.

Will it be an all-male Olympics then?
Just how can a female swimmer, gymnast, runner, etc compete while wearing a burqa?
And if I’m not mistaken, the London Olympics will be the first to be held in a Muslim country.

So instead of facing in Mecca’s direction they will crap in it’s direction.

Sounds reasonable.

The United Kingdom is dead and gone. Now they’re the Islamic Fundamentalist Republic of Britain. London will become New Tehran soon.

Come on guys, we are just silly, pathetic infidels...we are of no importance to the great Muslim faith. We must pay our jizya and have second class status; that is...if they don't kill us first. Maybe the U.S. will cower to their demands like France?
