Call Me Islamophobe

This Detroit News article actually appeared a few days after the scandal was
first reported by Debbie Schlussel, who wrote,
Forget about the Constitutionally mandated separation of church and state . . . at least when it comes to mosque and state.

When students return in the fall, the University of Michigan-Dearbornistan is set to have Muslim footbaths in at least two locations.

And your tax funds are paying for it.
The News may never have brought this outrage to our attention except that,
. . . critics hit conservative blogs and radio airwaves Monday to argue public money shouldn't cover the cost.
A similar controversy erupted in April in Minnesota, when Minneapolis Community and Technical College officials were bombarded with thousands of angry e-mails after announcing plans to build foot wash stations.

The issue was fueled by criticism from conservative Internet bloggers. In Metro Detroit, Southfield attorney Debbie Schlussel is leading the charge against U-M Dearborn's plans, writing: "Forget about the Constitutionally mandated separation of church and state at least when it comes to mosqueand state."
The University of Michigan-Dearborn plans to spend $25,000 for foot-washing stations, making it easier for Muslim students to practice their religion but sparking questions about the separation of church and state.

The university claims the stations are needed to accommodate Muslim students, who must ritually wash their bodies -- including the feet -- up to five times each day before prayers.
If you read Schlussel's lengthy piece, you get a lot of needed information. She took the time to speak to some of the dhimmis responsible for this small acknowledgment of Islamic supremacy.

If you read the News article, you are left with,
The Internet has created the fuss at U-M Dearborn, argued Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

"To my knowledge, none of the students or staff have made any complaints about the foot-washing area," Walid said.

"This whole thing came to light through some right-wing Islama-phobic bloggers that want to promulgate the idea that the university is being Islama-fied."
There we are again, if Walid isn't aware of complaints, there weren't any. And of course, if you refuse to submit to being a dhimmi, you are an Islamophobe. OK, I will try to be as Islamophobic as Debbie Schlussel. There is no future in the alternative. Give them an inch, and as we see throughout the world, they will take your freedom as an individual.

I've already written to my local newspapers and all of my elected representatives. I have yet to hear back from any of my reps. That's to be expected, Michigan is a blue state. All of my reps are Democrats.
