Muslims Seek Prayer Room At Airport

Maybe something like this and add in a disposable prayer rug dispensers on the walls.

Muslims Seek Prayer Room at Airport

Airport officials said Friday they will consider setting aside a private area for prayer and meditation at the request of imams concerned about the removal of six Muslim clerics from a US Airways flight last week.

Steve Wareham, director of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, said other airports have "meditation rooms" used for prayers or by passengers who simply need quiet time.

A group of Somali clerics met with airport officials Friday and said they would attract less attention if they had a private area for prayer. Devout Muslims pray five times daily, facing the holy city of Mecca.

"When we pray, we don't want a problem. We don't want what happened last week," said Abdulrehman Hersi, an imam at Darul-Quba mosque in Minneapolis, referring to six clerics who were barred from a US Airways flight in Minneapolis after drawing the concern of some passengers.

Airports in Nashville, Tenn.; Columbus, Ohio; and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., all advertise meditation rooms. Fort Lauderdale's is billed as "For travelers seeking a quiet time." All note they are nonsectarian.

The imams at the airport Friday drew a few stares as they laid down their prayer rugs and knelt on the hard rubber floor at the airport.

The clerics requested a meeting after both the US Airways incident and a recent flap over Muslim cabdrivers who didn't want to pick up passengers carrying alcohol.

Wild Thing's comments..........

So a publicly owned building can't have a crèche or a Christmas tree because it might mean we are condoning a religion, but we can build the rag heads a prayer room? I don't want my tax money spent on Muslims prayer rooms, if they don't like it, they can go back to their big mid-eastern sand box and pound sand. The only reason these people are demanding this is their need to force themselves on us, there need to show us that they are something special. By winning these concessions, they begin to dominate our culture with their PC BS. If we continue to acquiesce to their demands, we loose and they will win.

How about serving sacramental pork rinds on the plane instead of peanuts.

Just wondering how do Muslims pray in Seattle's revolving Space Needle? I mean one moment they are facing Mecca, the next- Tel Aviv. heh heh

lol lol lol....loved your comments Wildthing! Yes, I agree. This is about enforcing their will upon the non muslim majority. Inch by inch they are chipping away in order to dominate. I noticed the comment about the muslim taxi drivers that are refusing to pick up passengers carrying alcohol...well here in Australia recently the swineholts refused to take a blind lady's seeing eye dog in a taxi and the febble reason they gave was that dogs were 'haram' in their religion! I mean this just beggars belief!! Plus, the thing that really gets me going is that the left wingers in my country are standing up for 'their rights'........what about the rights of the blind woman to travel on public transport with her officially sanctioned seeing eye dog??? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.........!!!

No wonder those people always stink and all along I thought it was personal hygene. After each use they must tuck up inside the used portion so as to have a clean sheet showing. that way they don't have to wash it for a month.

Love the cartoon, trouble is they use fingers not paper, it's ok by me if the airports provide the rooms, as long as we can flush the bastards once they enter. Mark is closer to the truth, when a person pokes through their own fecal matter looking for allah they have a severe mental problem. This country locked up Charlie Manson for doing the same thing the Moslems are doing and the idiots in Minnesota elected one to Congress.

Off with their heads, rags and all. Anyone who is paying attention knows this was a scam being perpetrated by the imans*.

This would seem an appropriate punishment for lying in the name of allah*. ( Or at least cut out their tongues. ) Too bad most of the followers of this superstition don't have the guts to denounce this bull....

(* not capitalized )

I am afraid there is not going to be a reversal of this muslim takeover, unless they do another 9-11. If they are smart?, they will just keep immigrating and won't attack again. They are winning now.

Lyn I agree, that is horrible about what happened to the blind lady and her seeing eye dog. Grrrr is right!!!!

Yankeemom, I just keep hoping they will get more spine, more nerve to stand up to these people.deep sigh

Charlie H. it sure was!! Thanks Charlie.

Posted by: Wild Thing at December 2, 2006 06:26 PM

Tom, exactly, so many people just don't care anymore. It does not impact their daily life so they don't care, and how stupid is that. Because it will have a lot to do with their life when Islam rules and that is their plan for America.

Thank you Tom.

Tincan, I pray our leaders wise up and realize they have to get tuff about all of this.

Posted by: Wild Thing at December 2, 2006 06:28 PM

What's wrong with using the same room as everyone else who wants to pray or have a moment alone. Why do they think they're special?

They use violence to enforce their beliefs in othe countries. Just the thought of them using violence here in America has many people already peeing their pants in fear, including our elected leaders. For you Americans who believe it is up to you to defend yourself and your family if the stinky stuff ever hits the fan, here is something you will need and and it's a great price.

And, you best hurry because if the Democraps have their way, they'll be banned.

Radical Islam Plans to Take Over America
November 15, 2006

By Sher Zieve –

Appearing on Wednesday’s Laura Ingraham’s radio program, the author of “Now They Call Me Infidel” Nonie Darwish said the ultimate goal of radical Islam is to take over the US. Ms. Darwish, a Muslim, said that hundreds of Islamic mosques are being quickly built throughout the US, which currently have no attendees.

Darwish said that the mosques are radical Wahabee in nature and “preach hate”. When she questioned why the mosques were being built “at such great speed”, Darwish advised that she was told: “We’re here to Islamize America.”

Darwish also warned that Islamic nations do not allow any freedoms to non-Muslims and that the US was in great peril from radical Islam, both without and within the country.

Darwish advised that after 9/11/2001, she attempted to encourage Muslims in the US to demonstrate against the perpetrators of the carnage but, could find none to do so.

Bob, I will never understand why our leaders do not show more strength in wanting to make our country safe and secure.

Thank you for the link.

Lyn in Australia, thank you so much and thank you too for the link. Good one.

One thing you learn in the Marine Corps is respect for your chain of command, which encompasses some politicians, i.e. secretary of state, secretary of defense, the president.
All those whose surnames begin with "The Honorable ..."

Sometimes you gotta kind of sitback and let those make decisions who YOU appointed to office on a democratic voting system by the people.

Have faith my brothers and sisters.
For God has plans for you. And they are not to harm you. But to give you hope and prosperity and eternal life.
