Sharia compliant Mississauga swimming pool: Should Muslim mother obey lifeguards or Allah?

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

This one is for smug white privilege deniers who say Islamophobia doesn’t exist. I’ve come across proof that hatred for Muslims does exist in our great Dominion and it’s happening at our public swimming pools!

Did you hear about the mother and her young daughter who were kicked out of a Mississauga public swimming pool just because they were of the Islamic faith?

Check out the Toronto Star headline:

“Muslim mother cites racism after she and daughter forced to leave pool.”

How can it be that a publicly-funded pool has a “No Muslims” rule? Well, as often happens, when you look at the facts behind the story, a different picture emerges.

Watch as I explain what really led to the mother and her autistic daughter being asked to leave the pool.

It wasn’t because they were Muslims but because they weren’t obeying the commands of lifeguards – commands meant to ensure the daughter wouldn’t drown.

Cue the outrage as mama criesIslamophobia and the media buys it, followed by Mississauga’s recreation bureaucrats issuing a grovelling apology which Shazia said was “meaningless”.

Why do I see an Ontario Human Rights complaint brewing?

Have we really come to the point where risking an autistic child drowning is less egregious than insulting someone’s religious sensibilities?

What “Sharia Law” do you morons keep harping about? What “Sharia Law” in “her native Pakistan?” Yes, if your version of the story is correct , she was wrong to make it a religion issue, but you are just as self serving in your anti-Islamic rant in this commentary.

I have a couple of questions. If Sharia law forbids this girls mother from entering the pool, why is it okay for her daughter to enter the pool?
Could it be the mother wanted to pratise infantiside?
Could it be she is looking for excuse to sue the city?
Pool safety rules are for everyones safety. Could you imagine the law suite the city would have been faced with if the daughter had drowned?

We are developing a real double standard in Canada. What a bunch of wimps we have in law Canadian law makers. Are they so afraid to take a stand against these Muslims and their antiquated & backward laws?

If these people do not respect our laws & customs, why should we respect them?

Michael Mann you were saying human rights supercede religious rights yesterday, do you still say the same when it does not involve a Christian?

Removed for violating rule:Be civil. No personal attacks.

The rules are for everyone & how would the lifeguard even know they were Muslim unless they were wearing niqabs or hijabs at the pool or in the pool. I guess they’re all very aware that being Muslim in Canada means that your life, religion, etc will take precedence over everything else & everyone else. On the other hand if the lifeguard had done nothing & the daughter had been hurt, they’d be the first to criticize & sue. They sure know where to go & complain & do their whining.

Do these Dhimmi’s go swimming with their Niqab on,or should that be Burka?. Hope they take a bar of soap, when they go swimming.

“Here I have seen fully clothed muslim women swim in the public pool of my town when I was dropping off my daughter for a swimming class”. Christine Marios, that is indeed disgusting! I am impressed the rules prevented them from continuing the practice. Surprised they didn’t sue.
commented 2016-08-02 17:53:49 -0400
Islamic bullies. There is no way they should have been apologized to by anyone. If we cower every time these Sharia Muslims try their bullying tactics we are shooting ourselves in the foot. This really isn’t a small thing. These incidents are adding up and it sets a precedent. It also sets the stage for sharia creep, which will be sharia push before you know it. Talk about fitting into the community! Seriously supremacist nonsense.
Shazia may or may not want us dead, but she sure wants us to bow.

This lady was not dressed as a Muslim . She brings her autistic child to a public swimming and watches as her child struggles to stay above the water line. The observant Life Guards do their duty and save the child and inform the mother to either get in the pool to protect her child or remove her baby from the pool so that she doesn’t drown. This would sound reasonable to anyone—-Unless you are Muslim. My guess is that she was going to Sue if the Child Drowned - NOW—- She will probably sue because the Child Lived. Just another Muslim.

Next they will be demanding Sharia time which will ban regular female swimming suits which show some arms and legs and the idiot civic officials will fall for it when the problem is Islam treats women like chattel.

Sink or swim - that’s our dilemma
We’re sinking fast

If you can’t expose yourself for whatever reason then a swimming pool certainly isn’t the place for you.
commented 2016-08-02 14:24:23 -0400
Here I have seen fully clothed muslim women swim in the public pool of my town when I was dropping off my daughter for a swimming class. Each must have worn at least 5 to 10 lbs of clothing. Yuk! How disgusting! They can wash their dirty laundry at home like everybody else. They have changed the rule since last year as per the code of conduct that is displayed at the public swimming pool. Thank you God!

I wonder how many lifeguards will read about this and immediately start looking for a different job?

The mother was quite likely trying to sacrifice her kid for a large settlement with the city of Mississauga. Don’t rule anything out when it comes to barbarians.
commented 2016-08-02 13:30:02 -0400
This mother should be grateful. If her daughter was in their home country she wouldn’t have been able to live having a disability.

This story is very incomplete…..what exactly happened?? Does not surprise me that Mississauga politicians would be grovelling and apologizing all over the place but, would be nice to know the whole story!!

Presenting Khisr Khan was The Clinton war room’s response to Trump bringing out Pat Smith a week prior. You bring our one grieving parent and we’ll match that grieving parent and raise you one and throw in a tearful accusation of bigotry and disrespect for their son. I hate to be so cynical but I am sure the Clinton strategists aren’t shedding any tears but rather are patting themselves on the backs over this knowing full well Donald Trump won’t back down form a fight. They now can accuse mean Mr. Trump of picking on grieving parents of a hero and milk it for all it’s worth and trying to prove their point by going to all the usual suspects the same disgruntled establishment politicians who never liked Trump in the first place whose approval the lefty media uses to justify tier stance that Republicans are outraged. Scotty Houghes a Trump supporter brought up the relationship on Kate Bouldwin’s show on C.N.N. who didn’t have a clue what she was talking about. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/08/01/just-joking-media-apoplectic-khizr-khan-attack-donald-trump-goes-flames/ It seems even the media had a Khan job pulled on them.

Donald Allan: Thank you for pointing out the sham created by the Democrats regarding Khan and his “sorrowful” presentation at their convention, using his dead soldier son, supposedly killed in action on behalf of the American forces (who knows whose side this dead so-called “war hero” was actually on?). This Khan guy is a Sharia-compliant immigration lawyer who wants thousands of Muslims to be allowed into the United States. Hmmm.mmmm…nothing to see here, folks, except that is what Hillary wants also.
commented 2016-08-02 12:46:37 -0400
Yet another example of Muslims not here to integrate into our society, but, rather make demands our society bow to their will. Such it has been with every country muslims have migrated to, and the main reason why sometimes those countries erupt into civil war! Bosnia anyone? Soon to be Europe?

My big fear is sharia creep. I’ve mentioned before that the first step is going to be in the financial sector. Sharia law prohibits debt, so there is a movement on to write sharia into financial law. This will be the foot in the door and more should be said about this.

That being said, why can’t they just make a ladies only swim? They have all kinds of ladies’ nights for all kinds of activities. They have lane swim, family swim, lessons; all of which are necessarily exclusive. That way if the pro-sharia set want to complain they are on shaky ground

This brings up the idea of exclusivity. It can be good or bad. It depends on the intention. If one intends to prevent others from participating it is bad. If the intention is to accommodate a relevant group it is good.

I wouldn’t worry about what the Toronto Star has to say… they will not be around much longer. Torstar cut their dividend some 65% last week sighting poor revenue and not much is happening on their web content business either. Now if only the same thing could happen to the CBC… not a chance as they are part of the liberal media arm and will get funding no matter what. I heard it said once that “the CBC is run by people who never watch it”. Probably true!
commented 2016-08-02 12:03:48 -0400
For those of you following the big Trump vs. Khan issue , be advised that this Khan is a big advocate of Sharia and is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. As usual, a big CON job by the Democrats. They keep trying to tell us that the Muslim Brotherhood is now moderate and terrorism has nothing to do with Islam. Saying Islam is a religion of peace is like saying Lucrezia Borgia was just a lousy cook. Antipasto with arsenic anyone?
The entire media is compromised with a love affair with Islam, the minority religion that only has at last count one and a half billion followers. Thats a pretty big minority.
People better get educated quickly regarding this existential threat to our freedom and liberty which is the basis of our society and Western Culture.
