Dhimmitude Attitude: Indianapolis International Airport

April 5, 2008

A s the Sharia creeps stealthily along, more and more Islamic ground is gained.

Muslims to get floor sinks at airport by fall

New, sanitary facilities for ritual foot-washing will serve taxi drivers

Floor sinks to accommodate prayer requirements for Muslim taxi drivers will be installed at Indianapolis International Airport by fall.

David Dawson, a spokesman for the airport project, said this week that two bathrooms, one for men and one for women, will have the sinks. Both will be in a 900-square-foot building where taxi drivers gather before picking up passengers at the terminal.

Many of the taxi drivers are Muslims who pray five times a day. The prayer involves many rituals, including washing the feet.

Drivers now use hand sinks at the existing terminal, which has caused safety hazards.

“The result of that is there is standing water on the floor and structural stress on the sink,” Dawson said.

Here’s a thought tell them to stop leaving a sloppy mess. Showering the disrespectful with gifts? Is that how they would treat their children if they ransacked the house?

That created a sanitation problem and was the main reason the floor sinks were proposed, he said.

Osmand Djama, 44, a taxi driver who uses the facility, said about 180 taxi drivers, most of whom are men, use the bathroom, making it unsanitary.

No Osmand, they are uncivilized heathens who do not bother concerning their selves with respecting anothers property. They should be fined not molly coddled!

According to Dawson, the cost of the sinks is estimated at $750 each. They are expected to be installed by the end of October, the same time construction on the new midfield terminal should be completed.

I certainly hope their union is footing (pun intended) the bill. Yeah right…

The Airport Authority Board approved the installation plan in February despite some public objection and criticism from a local minister.

The Rev. Jerry Hillenburg of Hope Baptist Church in Indianapolis, whose son was killed in Iraq in 2004, called the sinks unconstitutional and said they showed a dangerous concession to Islam. Hillenburg and his supporters rallied at Hope Baptist Church against the sinks last fall.

Marc Monte, pastor at Faith Baptist Church in Avon, attended the rally. He said installing the sinks indulges a globally violent religious group.

“I continue to oppose (the plan) on the grounds that it shows preferential treatment to that religion,” he said. “I don’t think the Airport Authority is going to let me install a baptismal font to baptize people in.”

Monte said he is not sure whether his or Hillenburg’s community will take further action against the installation but thinks it shows that “in the name of multiculturalism, people will sell America down the river.”

Voices of reason in the dhimmi wilderness. Three cheers!

Taxi driver Abdi Mahamud, 44, said he and other Muslims would continue to pray even if there were no floor sinks.

Fantastic! A budget saving plan! Scrap the appeasing project.

“We feel the pain for (Hillenburg’s) son,” Mahamud said. “But that has nothing to do with this.”

Nor do foot baths have a thing to do with the majority of the population, but that isn’t stopping the installation.

Shariq A. Siddiqui, executive director of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana, said he’s glad the board made its decision based on sanitation, not religion.

LIAR! A big fat whopper masking the religious angle. The sanitation problems came in to play why? Because of the Muslim taxi drivers pre-prayer ritual! Religion is the basis.

“We’re glad they’re dealing with health and safety rather than falling into Islamophobia,” he said.

Of course islamophobia is just darn truth based. Can’t have that.

“None of us ever requested that these sinks be installed,” Siddiqui said. “But once they made this (announcement), a lot of people said this was like aiding the enemy. We are against this kind of rhetoric.”

I wouldn’t go that far. But enough is enough! The special accommodation’s given to a select few is out of control. “The typical Somali house is either a cylindrical hut with a conical thatched roof or a rectangular hut with an angular roof of thatch or metal.” Let’s be honest, does the typical home in Somalia have fancy foot baths? Doubtful.

Dawson, the airport spokesman, said everyone’s comments about installing the sinks were taken into account.

He said the issues the airport sought to address were safety and sanitation concerns, not religious practices.

Thanks for repeating that mind numbing rhetorical fiction.

    portable foot bath…I am screaming.

    Wudu a go-go.

    Islamos getting special religious treatment? Not so funny.

    My religion requires me to have a house boy and a Bentley Azure – will the Indianapolis airport authority provide me with them?

    “Wudu a go-go”


    Yes plain unadulterated BS!

    What do I have to do to join your Bentley religion?
    Sounds like it is right up my alley. :mrgreen:

    Hi V,

    I’ll join too if I can have a Porsche instead of the Bentley.

    As to the foot washing, I suspect that their feet need regular scrubbing. On the other hand, I fail to see why they can’t just dance in the toilet. On the gripping hand, one has to wonder how big the uproar will be when one of these fanatic taxi drivers catches some unsophisticated person taking a leak, or worse, in their holy foot basin?

    If you build a muslim a foot sink in an airport , he’ll ask you for a towel. If you give him a towel, he’ll ask you for a prayer rug. If you give him a rug, he’ll ask you to build a mosque near the sink. If you build him the mosque, he’ll ask you to pray with him. If you refuse, you’re infidel, so he’ll propably gonna kill ya.

    Exactly! That is the point.
    The ‘bully mentality’. Plain and simple.

    Islam an entitled political special interest group veiled as a religion.

    We’re giving it all away, and we’re smiling as we do it. Every day we lose a little bit more. Every day we write about it.
    But where is it going to end? What will America be like in ten years? In twenty years?
    Is there anything that will stop this great giveaway? Is there anything out there that could still shock us into our senses?
    Obviously, 9/11 didn’t do it.
    What in the world would it take?
