On Harvard’s Shariah/Islamofascist Gym

By Debbie Schlussel
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).


Harvard’s New HALAL Logo By David Lunde

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?

First the Jews complained because last September, the Harvard Football team scheduled Opening Night on Yom Kippur. So they moved Opening night! Can you believe this capitulation to Judaism?
Boycott Harvard!

Let LIBERAL institutions like Harvard learn the hard way. Let them learn about the intolerance of islam.
LIBERALS like to preach tolerance… watch those “tolerant” islamists use that very weapon against them. Let’s look as the LIBS slowly realize that their own tolerance will lead to the elimination of their own rights. Let’s witness their silent agony as the “tolerant” islamists tighten the noose of Political Correctness around their necks.

It’s interesting that none of this happened before 9/11. Before 9/11, I’d never even heard of CAIR. And now, they, and the mooslime brotherhood, and every other rag-tag islamist “intolerance” group is pushing for special accomodations in schools, stores, airports, and the workplace. More interesting, though, is the insane level of capitulation. We just can’t scramble fast enough to appease those who want us dead, and sharia law imposed upon our land. What gives?

spiffo on March 7, 2008 at 3:45 pm

Sure the majority should compromise with the minorities. Just like in Muslim-majority countries, they are completely tolerant of other faiths, allow them to build and repair their churces/synagogues, refrain from demolishing historic religious sculptures….oh wait…nevermind.
My short definition of tolerance is that it’s like paying taxes. It’s something you love as long as it’s the other guy who has to do it.
Here’s a quotation from Daniel Pearl’s dad, worth remembering:
“This is a political version of a famous paradox formulated by Bertrand Russell. The stronger you insist on the necessity of tolerance, the more intolerant you become toward those who disagree.”
Judea Pearl, Daniel Pearl’s father, 19 Sep 07

I guess Harvard doesn’t want to risk not getting all that Arab money that it has been receiving in recent years.
Obviously the Muslims do not want to compromise, they want to dominate, and it looks like they are well on their way.
Since a comparison with Jews has been brought up, it should be noted that Jewish people do, in fact, have Jewish athletic facilities open to them. Jewish Community Centers have gyms, personal trainers, etc. I am sure that other religions have simiar facilties, so if a Muslim woman doesn’t want to work out among men, either go to such a facility, or set one up.
That’s not really what this is about anyway. They are just trying to weaken Western civilization.

maybe america and americans deserve islam?

This week, it’s six hours of gymtime. Next week, it’s world domination. Damn Muslims

Audacious on March 7, 2008 at 4:45 pm

let me explain:
something has to fill the vacuum america is rejecting Biblical morality and values which makes it easy for islam to invade plus the moslem money helps
we are helpless witnesses to the most incredible conquest taking place piece by piece that will go down in history as the most foolish thing imaginable
so what’s the answer: be prepared for a future of unprecented horror: mass conversions to islam merciless dhimmitude persecution of jews and bible believing non dhimmitic christians an exodus of jews from the new babylon back to israel! and the kicker is that our western governments will help the moslems in the progress as we see the evidence of this mount day by day

forrest shalom on March 7, 2008 at 4:52 pm

“Mass conversions to islam”!!!
When will this happen? Next decade? Four years from now? Before Memorial Day? When?

Audacious on March 7, 2008 at 5:10 pm

Maybe they can indoctrinate Muslim women with feminism so they won’t marry and have children and will hate their son’s and demorlize them and this will make the muslims less of a demographic threat. I give up with our own religious leaders ignoring the issue of abuse and neglect towards men and THEIR OWN DISCRIMINIATION TOWARDS RANK AND FILE MEN that in the real world are hurt by it.
When will Orthodox Jewish Rabbi’s or Christian leaders speak out on the discrimination towards fathers and to men in general. It is sad but they like to protect the women but at the expense of their own rank and file men which anyway are not the enemy. Orthodox Rabbi’s are too busy coming up with grand explanation of this Rabbinic blessing that has no biblical support that Jews make (which I think in this case the Rabbi’s are wrong) Thank you for not making me a women by basically puting down rank and file men and in the real world Orthodox women do get away with a lot of bad beahvior towards their own men and their own sons and the men can’t do anything about it because of some of these strange theories that anyone who works in the outside world knows it is not true.
Michael Savage has at times said this but I sort of agree that in this vacum of our own discrimination against our own men that exists at the highest level that in this vacum Muslim men and a religion that is at the other extreme that 4 men are needed to prove rape and leaders blame women for their own sexual agression is becoming a real serious threat to the west includig America and Israel. So I thnk both Judaim and Christianity have become a little too feminized and I hope we can get the pendulam to some sort of medium.

i think that islam is the world wide anti semitic religion prophesied in the bible that converts and/or dominates the world:
Revelation 13: 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

oh so “when will this happen”: its happening now but will increase dramatically as islam rises and dominates and the world shrinks in fear.

I do not get it. Why not just exercise with their hijab on, so they can’t be seen?

I got an email that the gym involved is one of the smaller out of the way Harvard gyms and that it has been EMPTY during the shariah hours – i.e. the women who made the big stink are not even using it – but the area guys who WERE using it can’t. Worth looking into.

poetcomic1 on March 8, 2008 at 11:22 am

I’m confused as to how this is enforced.
Couldn’t male Harvard students just walk in and use the gym? Are they going to be arrested?

John Davies on March 8, 2008 at 2:26 pm

B”H I totally agree that it is inappropriate in the U. S. to capitulate to any one religion’s sensibilities at the expense of another. Postponing a test for Yom Kippur or at least giving people an alternative date can be done so it does not harm others.
In Israel at mixed schools teachers do not give homework to Christians to be due on Christmas, nor expect fasting Muslim kids to function at full capacity during Ramadan. Accommodation IS doable.
I am all for private gyms making their own rules. After all I know many women who do not like to be gawked at while they are working out.
Secular women sometimes go to the separate sex beaches in Israel for the same reason.
Opening up a separate hours gym in Borough Park is not capitulating to Orthodox Jewish interests; it is just good business sense, providing a desired service.
I would’ve thought that the separate hours would be of benefit to Muslims, Orthodox Jews, lesbian separatists, and women who just do not want to be gawked at. But, maybe they’re aren’t very many of these groups to justify any changes in policy.

Ben-Yehudah on March 8, 2008 at 5:21 pm

Ben-Yehudah, I think we have to be careful not to fall into a trap of relativism, & think that everyone else wants some kind of accomodation & therefore the coercive policies of the Muslims at Harvard are acceptable.
I don’t think that the Orthodox Jewish people in Brooklyn are trying to take over NY or impose their law on everyone else. Same with the schools in Israel. The Christians are not trying to take over the schools in Israel, although once you get to the Muslim kids (or little terrorists), it may be a different story.
However, the Muslims at Harvard, like the clamorning Muslims all over the country, are trying to take over this country, to say that our laws, in general, should not apply to them. That sets them apart from the examples contained in your post.
Motive is key.

c f: “although once you get to the Muslim kids (or little terrorists),”
c f, how long have you been a disgusting bigot? All your life? Were your parents bigots — or did you develop these ugly views all on your own?

I wonder how many student visas were fraudulently obtained and destined to be abused just like they have in the past?
CIS (Citizenship and Immigration Services) needs to turn off the spigot but I see that happening about the time the “ICE Princess” and “Little George” figure out what the job is all about.
