While Muslim clerics in Iran and Saudi Arabia call for Muslims to attack Jews everywhere (that includes the U.S.), and CAIR is urging Muslims in the U.S. rise up on the issue, (more on CAIR’s antics here) the stealth jihad continues apace in the heartland. Previously covered here.
Tucked away in a corner of an out-of-the-way bathroom on the vast grounds of Indianapolis’ new airport, back where the cab drivers play gin rummy while they wait for fares, is evidence of the city’s growing diversity.
It’s a trough, about 2 feet by 6 feet, marked off by a cement wall about six inches high. Two faucets empty into the trough.
It’s a foot bath, and it’s not for travelers. Rather, it’s for the Muslims cabbies who observe the purification ritual of “wudu.”
“It’s very nice, much better than the old airport,” said Farh Nasir, a Muslim from Somalia who washes his feet in the bath several times a day.
There was no foot bath at the old airport.
Nasir used to sit down outdoors and pour water over his feet from a bottle. Others used bathroom sinks.
The custom in Islam is to pray five times a day. Cleanliness is a prerequisite to prayer.
As the number of Muslim cab drivers in the U.S. has grown, other airports, such as those in Phoenix and Kansas City, have accommodated them with foot baths.
There have been mild protests. Last year, when the foot baths were in the planning stages here, members of an Indianapolis Baptist church staged a rally to oppose the baths as a dangerous caving-in to Islam.
Today there are two foot baths, one in the cabbies’ men’s room, the other in the women’s. The women’s doesn’t get used, cabbies say, because there are no female Muslim cab drivers.
