Those Poor Muslims

This Story Was Suggested By John K

An Australian university has offered Muslims their own private bathrooms that can only be accessed by secret code. And I have the code. It's four LA-LA-LA-LA's, two Jihad's and eight Allah's.

You know, this has gotten out of hand. People are so afraid of offending the poor downtrodden Muslims today. I can't imagine why, I mean it's not like they'd do something stupid call for a Jihad then blow themselves up killing you in the process. They're not that easily offended.

And so begins the Australian Apartheid state. Soon I'am sure the government there will adopt the same lines of thought and suggest that all non muslims leave Australia so that Muslims won't be insulted by having to be in close proximity to Infidels.

Actually, it has nothing to do with offending Muslims.

If either of you had read the article, you'd have seen that it was actually so that the non-Muslims wouldn't get annoyed:

"Muslims need to wash their feet before prayer and in the past there have been complaints about them washing their feet in sinks, so this is a happy medium," he said.

Excuse me but do not "muslims" in Australia wear shoes and socks? I did not know that Australia was as backwards and dirty nas say Eqypt or Saudi Arabia. Now I know.
When are you Aussie going to demand "assimilation" instead of Aparteid?

Za, I'm just wondering. If Muslims in Australia were demanding that Sharia law be implimented there, as they're doing throughout Europe, would you be willing to accept that? It is, after all, part of their religion.

Whoa!
"Australian Apartheid state"
"Sharia law be implimented "
It's a little over the top, it isn't an issue. It's some minor shit stiring from a knuckle-headed minority of Anglo Australians who want a fight, any fight, even one over washroom etiquette.
I live five minutes from Latrobe, and I had to hear of this from guys 9000km's away.
It's a strom in a teacup

... and to answer one of life's great mysteries "do not "muslims" in Australia wear shoes and socks? "
They take their shoes/socks off before washing their feet, or at least that's how my neighbour does it.

The place where I study has a different solution, a trough-like sink, lower to the ground, for washing feet in (it has a sign saying it's for washing feet in). And sinks for washing hands (with sign indicating this)
All of this is in one bathroom.

Should we have a go at the disabled, they get separate bathrooms?

I had wondered about the signs saying "don't wash feet in sink"
I didn't feel tempted until I read the sign, now I can't help myself.

If Muslims in Australia were demanding that Sharia law be implimented there
1) How does washing your feet before prayer compare to Sharia law?
2) They weren't demanding this, we gave it to them to solve possible disputes.

If Muslims were demanding Sharia law, they can go through the democratic process to put it in place.
