On Friday, we gave the complete picture to the one-sided story about the extremist Muslim women who want to force their religious mores on a national gym chain based in the Detroit area.
The women, Ammerah Saidi and Arrwa Mogalli, insisted that Fitness USA gym in Lincoln Park, Michigan have separate gender days to work out or install a partition in the middle of its new cardio and tanning section so that the Muslim women can feel comfortable dressing in skimpy clothes and taking their hijabs off without men being turned on by their sexy(?) hair and bodies.
As we noted, one of the extremist women, Ammerah Saidi, wrote on this site that, “If it (America) falls to Islam, so be it.” (She also refused to denounce extremist terrorist groups that murdered hundreds of Americans and others, apparently defending them.)
That is apparently the aim of these demands, little by little, inch by angry inch.
Perhaps the gym should have been called Weakness USA. Sadly, today, it caved to the demands of the extremist Muslim women and their friends at HAMAS-front group CAIR. The gym will install a partition wall in its cardio area, separating men from women. It’s interesting that Islamists decry the Israeli security fence to protect its citizens from Islamic terror, claiming its on their land. But these same Islamists have no problem forcing a private business on private property to install a wall to meet the separatist, extremist demands of Muslims.
CAIR is presenting this as an “accommodation for customers of all faiths.” But it is not. In fact, the only religion to which this kowtow bend-over is made is Islam. The women in hijabs whining about the gym were neither Christian nor Jewish. Other religions have not tried to impose their restrictions on the gym.
CAIR insists on freedom of choice, freedom of speech, etc.–all the freedoms. But only for themselves, not for us Infidels. That apparently includes privates businesses and gyms, and G-d, er . . . Allah knows what else.
The prescription for this illness? We suggest the spineless Fitness USA gym execs go see “United 93.” They need it very badly.
