Your Day in Muslim Somali Swimming Lessons – YMCA Embraces Sharia to Survive; Gets Police Escorts, Public Funds for It

By Debbie Schlussel

Young Man, There’s a Place You Can Go . . . . Oh, wait, you cannot go there because it’s sharia Muslima swimming time. Yup, it’s no longer “fun to stay at the YMCA.” And you can “no longer hang out with all the boys,” either.

Hey, It’s the New & Improved Muslim Village People Approved YMCA . . .



It’s stark symbolism of what’s happening in America: YMCAs–ironically once Christian organizations–are embracing sharia and Muslims to stay afloat. And they’re getting tax money to subsidize this–in the form of police escorts and funds, which is completely unconstitutional. Where is the ACLU when you need them? Cricket noises abound.

When I was a little kid, my parents sent me to the YMCA for swimming lessons. But the suburban Detroit YMCA where I learned to swim doesn’t exist anymore. It’s now some sort of industrial park warehouse location. And that’s indicative of what is happening with “the Y” all over the country. YMCAs are dying out fast. The organization–the acronym for Young Men’s Christian Association–is now best known as the topic and title of The Village People’s 1978 disco song.

And, so, how does YMCA stay afloat? By providing gender-segregated, Muslim-only swimming lessons for Muslima chicks in Minnesota.

Yup, the YMCA is now the YMMA or perhaps the YMShariaA. FYI, when my Orthodox Jewish parents sent me for swimming lessons, they didn’t demand that all little boys and non-Jews be removed. We would never dream up such an intolerant, absurd demand. That’s not how we are. But it is, sadly, how Muslims are . . . in swimming, and in many countries, in who gets to live. And the separate swimming lessons for Muslim girls are a preview of what’s to come (and what is, actually, already here).

Another thing on this is that the swimming lessons program “specifically caters to the needs of Somali [DS: that means Muslim] girls.” Um, is there something about their bodies that makes them sink? Something about them that makes the way they swim different from the rest of the human population? (It’s a myth that Blacks can’t swim due to some fictional “body density.”) I mean, I understand it’s far more difficult to navigate the waters when you have on scuba gear and bombs you’re about to detonate. But, I mean, other than that . . . .

Rayan Dhamuke, 12, doesn’t get to swim a lot, unlike her brothers. During the past summer, she had to visit the pool at 5 a.m. so that she would have the privacy she needed to enjoy the water while still adhering to her family’s cultural and religious beliefs. To better accommodate girls like Dhamuke, the downtown St. Paul YMCA, in partnership with the St. Paul Police Department, has started a swim group for Somali-American girls. The group, which began in October, is serving as an outlet for girls ages 5 to 17 to learn the basics of swimming.

One evening last week, the din of girls’ laughter and splashes filled the windowless, humid pool room of the St. Paul downtown YMCA. . . . Special considerations have to be made to address modesty concerns so that the Muslim girls can swim and not reveal too much of themselves. During the hourlong swim practice, all other swimmers are cleared out of the pool. The men’s locker room is locked. Female life guards are brought in. The pool, which is on the building’s third floor, has no windows so they don’t have to worry about prying eyes from outside.

St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith had discussions with Britts to let the Y know that, through the department’s connections with the Somali-American community, they had learned that such a group was needed. “I think this is just a great opportunity for them to learn basic skills that we take for granted,” said Sgt. Jennifer O’Donnell, who has worked with the Somali community regularly during her time with the department.

Yes, I, too, agree that tax funds should be used for swimming and underwater training for young Muslim girls. After all, why should the Ikhwan [Brotherhood] pay for these lessons, when tax funds and police support plus desperate YMCA dhimmi dhummies can be used to help these women learn the skills necessary for plumbing New York’s harbor when the time comes.

“We have to have privacy,” said Ubah Ali, Dhamuke’s mother. For years, Ali said she has been trying to find a place where her daughter could swim, but nothing seemed to work. Not knowing how to swim is a safety risk, especially in the state of 10,000 lakes, Ali said.

And in the Hudson River when you’re trying to plant bombs.

Hani Hussein, who volunteers at the Al-Ihsan Islamic Center in St. Paul, said she looked into reserving public pools for girls, but it was too expensive. “I really wanted the girls to come swim to learn not only how to swim but to build their confidence,” Hussein said.

Cuz’, G-d, er . . . allah, knows that Muslim chicks’ self-confidence is not high enough.

Other metro YMCAs have water safety programs, but they don’t specifically cater to the needs of Somali girls. However, Britts recalled that a YMCA in north Minneapolis did have a Somali girls swim group about a decade ago.

Funding for the group comes from two metrowide water safety grants from Hawkins Inc. and Abbey’s Hope Charitable Foundation. The police department helps provide transportation for the girls to the YMCA.

If you live in Minneapolis-St. Paul, don’t patronize Hawkins and don’t donate to Abbey’s Hope. Clearly, Abbey has thrown in the towel and put up the surrender flag to Islam.

By the way, don’t dare play The Village People’s “YMCA” anywhere near this sharia swimfest. Gays aren’t welcome in Islam. In fact, it gets you a fate worse than drowning.

Privacy in a pool? That’s the last place I’d go searching for privacy. What’s next? Demanding separate seats in public transportation, so that men and women don’t interact to each other? Where it will end?

Rodrigo Veleda on November 18, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    Yes Rodrigo, they want segregation. Muslims make old school segregationists from the 1950’s South seem downright progressive.

    Worry01 on November 19, 2013 at 2:42 am

Yes, the YMCA and YWCA succumbed to political correctness decades ago. Their main mission now is fighting ‘racism’ and ‘sexism’ and pandering to Muslims is an offshoot of this.

In the old days, the YMCA and similar organizations were trying to build character. But that old Victorian objective went out by the time of the depression — a slight resurgence during the late 40s and 50s, but by the 60s, all was lost.

Little Al on November 18, 2013 at 6:17 pm

BTW, in 1975 Somalia was a leading sponsor of the infamous UN ‘Zionism is Racism” resolution.

Little Al on November 18, 2013 at 6:23 pm

What normal human beings get a police escort to go swimming? Also, these girls would never get a chance in public to go near the water, so what safety issue is being addressed. This is sexual and religious segregation supported with taxpayer funds. Would any religious denomination get this sort of accommodation in support of their bigotry. Are infidels, on the whole, attracted to pre-teens? Apparently, Muslims project their tendencies towards pedophilia and rape on to others. This should be taken as the the darkest insult by non-Muslims.

Worry01 on November 18, 2013 at 6:31 pm

I thought the YMCA and YWCA had mission statements regarding Christian ideals!

Lisa on November 18, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    You got it right, Lisa. The YMCA/YWCA “had” such a mission statement.

    OrlandoRican on November 19, 2013 at 11:02 am

    I used to think that the Y had something to do with Christian values, but they’re all about “social justice” now – at least if the posters around our Y are any indication.

    My question on this topic is: Exactly what ARE the special needs of Somali/Muslim women when it comes to swimming? How can they float in those robes? How can they breathe while swimming in those veils? I saw Muslims at the beach in Hilton Head and the women wore all of their religious gear, while the men wore swim trunks. I wondered why the women bothered to go at all. They certainly didn’t swim. They just stood around while the men.and boys had fun.

    MIGirl on November 21, 2013 at 6:07 pm

I can understand that they might have the opportunity to drown in one of the 10K lakes, but wouldn’t they be forbidden from being saved by a male non-family memmber?

And if they were saved by a male non-family member and he gives them CPR, who will stone the Somali female for breaking the rules?

Clearly, this problem mandates more public funding:

1. Each SOmali young women shall be assigned a female sharia-compliant personal lifeguard 24/7 to shadow her because of the increased Minnesotan danger of a Somali female falling into a lake.

2. A sharia-compliant stoning squadron must be on standby and available 24/7 in the case of a Somali female who might inadvertently receive CPR from a non-family member, thus requiring death by stoning.

    Haha, you got that right on the money!!

    FLPatriot on November 20, 2013 at 10:56 pm

Just the worse people in our society that are not even decent damn citizens, dictating how the rest of us have to deal with THEM. If this stuff was happening to me when I was 14-17 years old, I’d not allow myself to be removed from any facility while these stinking, disgusting fowl people try to have me alter my day. Where’s a flash mob when you need one??
As a middle age man with no interest in the YMCA, I watch from a distance as this crap turns my stomach. Of all places. I just hope those scum endanger themselves wearing all those bulky clothes in water and whatever bad things happen to them because of their 11th century modesty, happens with life guards that are not competent and muslim. That would be fine and just.

There’s also the Young Men’s Hebrew Association, which offered similar recreational activities for Jewish youth.

The YMCA has been a tad bit anti-Semitic for quite some time, Deb. They keep up the old “East Jerusalem” language to describe their facility in ISRAEL. They waver around a bit about this, but have never actually referred to their facility in “East Jerusalem” as being in ISRAEL.

They really don’t want to shoot up flares about this, but any Zionist who has been (or is presently) a member ultimately looks it up and sees for themselves.

My mother enrolled me in the Y to learn swimming primarily. I had a membership from 1964-68 at the Y on 63rd St., off Central Park West. I learned to swim extremely well, but was disappointed when we moved out of the neighborhood, and I had to give up going there. I also think my mom could no longer afford it. Another sport “I coulda been a contendah” at.

Isn’t Al Franken a “Senator” from Minnesota? Is this him going back to his Saturday Night Live days? Closed door sessions for SOMALI girls? How come Reverend Sharpie, Calypso Louie and Rev. Jerkson aren’t outside demanding they let ALL the sustahs in? Ahhhhhh yes, coquis again, or crickets as some would say.

What was that word Jesus used so often and effectively? Yes, that’s it?

HYPOCRITES!!! The entire USA. HYPOCRITES!!! George Washington is spinning 30,000 rpm in his grave.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on November 18, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Wow. I used to rent out a room from a couple at 20 W. 64th right next door, when I spent a few years in NYC in the 1980’s, and used to swim in that pool at the Y.

    Jonathan E. Grant on November 18, 2013 at 11:11 pm

These somali POS never got to swim even in a pool of dog urine back in filthy somalia. Now suddenly, they demand it as if its their cultural right? White people are getting more and more stupid lately and sowing the seeds of their own demise.

Rex on November 18, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    LOL, too true.

    samurai on November 19, 2013 at 10:06 am

Remember, the people primarily responsible for bringing over tens of thousands of Somalis and their offspring to the Twin Cities area are affiliated with the Lutheran Church’s resettlement agency. These “refugees” aren’t so helpless now that they’re on our soil. And they’re ugly, too – see the great new movie, “Captain Phillips,” if you don’t believe me.

This was originally set up by the YMCA in San Francisco:

We can see how far the YMCA has fallen from the days when it provided the original impetus for Golden Gate University.

Worry01 on November 19, 2013 at 1:19 am

Go fuck yourself you Jewish scum of the earth, ugly piece of shit. All you do is talk shit about Muslims because you haven’t had dick in a long time you ugly disgusting bitch. You can go fuck your self while your wearing a yamaka and holding a tora what ever the fuck it’s called you old ugly looking bitch. No wonder you’re public enemy number one bcz you specifically call out one race and that’s the Muslim race. Well…. fuck you. No life slob

J: Isn’t it interesting that your surname is a very clearly Arabic (and sometimes Muslim) one, Mr. Fakhoury. DS

    Joe on November 19, 2013 at 1:29 am

    More antisemitism Joe? Do you think that your middle school routine impresses anyone here? It just shows us that your mental development ended at 12. I am sure that those Somali girls might need protection from the likes of you. Do you like breaking into those locker rooms Jo Jo?

    Worry01 on November 19, 2013 at 2:24 am

Well, degeneracy and decline means going lower all the time. First the faggots in the YMCA, now Muslims. Can they go any lower? I wonder.

RT on November 19, 2013 at 2:20 am

Ummmm, Joe, I will leave the rest alone except to say that you are so ignorant you don’t even know what “race” is? Race is the classification of a person based on skin tone–Caucasian, Black, etc. Muslim is a religion–ok, just kidding, it is a hate-filled, blood-thirsty cult– and by very definition cannot be a race. Put your eyes and limited intellect in a real book like a dictionary instead of the fairy-tales of the koran.

The MPD is a Muslim terrorist taxi service. Some cops they are.

Federale on November 19, 2013 at 12:01 pm

Have the YMCA people in the USA never heard of a Burkini?
Muslem girls across the world go swimming at mixed public beaches and pools all the time wearing what is basically a thin wet suit. Patently ridiculous but so is the whole Muslem Cult. But yes Somali females are different, they do not have a clitoris ,having had it slashed out so they can no longer enjoy sex ,thus improving their husbands chances of keeping them in the kitchen.

Aron B on November 19, 2013 at 3:11 pm

And from Germany where they do not fear the cultists but use their laws effectively.

….and I suppose the muzzy types drink at their own drinking fountain and ride in the front of the bus too.

Where I hears this befo?

Panhandle on November 19, 2013 at 4:26 pm

At the risk of repetition.
Muslims don’t particularly need to swim anyway because according to the Ayatollah Khomeini, “There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious. Islam does not allow swimming in the sea and is opposed to radio and television serials.”.
If Muslims don’t need to swim in the sea then there’s not much reason for them to swim in the YMCA.
I realize there are different streams of Islam but according to most Muslims there is only one Islam so the fact that I’m lumping them all together is their problem. Nut jobs.

If we were all as Islamo-intolerant as Muslims we wouldn’t have a problem because then we could just accuse Muslims of not being authentic Muslims when they cry Islamophobia. Problem solved.

It will be decidedly less gay to be gay at the YMCA from now on. No question.
Thanks gays. Never learned when too much party is enough party? Now you will and everybody else has to suffer along with you.

Frankz on November 19, 2013 at 5:27 pm

I guess it is hard to find someplace to learn how to swim when you live in the land of 1000 lakes. In my part of Alabama, we only had one lake, but we managed…
