Since the story broke late last week, a number of readers have sent me the story about Harvard’s latest capitulation to Muslims with separate hours for women at the Ivy League university’s gym. I didn’t write about it because I’m kind of fed up (plus I was waiting to contact the Great David Lunde and have him make this logo per my specifications for the new Halal Harvard).
I’m fed up that this is not the first time this has happened and that Americans are doing nothing to take back their country. As readers know, I already wrote about the Fitness USA gym chain and how it agreed to install a wall separating men and women at its Lincoln Park, Michigan location per the demands of Muslimas and CAIR.
The most nauseating part of the Harvard story–and the rest of the American story of Islam making these outrageous demands–is this:
Student Ola Aljawhary, who is Muslim and works out elsewhere on campus but is not one of the women who requested the change, rejected that argument.
“The majority should be willing to compromise,” she said. “I think that’s just basic courtesy. We must show tolerance and respect for all others.”
WRONG. The fact is that Muslim women could work out at Harvard or Fitness USA with their get-up on, but they don’t want to do it. This isn’t about “compromise” by two parties. It’s about domination of the tolerant, wimpy majority by a tough, vocal minority that never takes not for an answer and always gets what it wants because of the majority’s soft, ever-sanguine disposition. They want to be able to wear very un-Islamic, skimpy clothes to work out. Tough. Build your own Islamic gym, complete with explosive belt-tightening exercises.
But, instead, they need not build their own gyms because American institutions are capitulating to Islamic demands one by one, like dominoes.
The fact is that, while Harvard is a private university, it gets federal tax money in research grants and certain federal aid. That means it can be subject to laws that govern public and quasi-public institutions. But no-one is suing or complaining or writing legislation that requires Harvard not institute sexist policies at its gyms at the request of six Muslim women (that’s how many made this request–just six).
Your tax money is going to Harvard. What are you doing about this capitulation to Islam and discrimination against men?
Harvard’s motto, “Veritas”–”Truth”–is no longer. Veritas has been replaced by Shariah.
And Harvard Crimson is now just another shade of Islamic Green.
At the time that the women in the Dearbornistan area made the demands that Fitness USA capitulate to their Islamic precepts (which it did), one of them, Ammerah Saidi, wrote this comment on my site:
If it (America) falls to Islam, so be it.
Will you let that happen? What are you doing to stop it?
