George Washington Univ adds female-only swim hours for Muslims

Sharia compliant, complete with a female lifeguard.

The Muslim Students Association is shaking down universities while their fellow Muslim Brotherhood-linked legal jihadists, CAIR, are shaking down private pools. You can take a Muslim out of sharia, but apparently you can’t take the sharia out of some Muslims. via University starts female-only swim hours – News.

When Zainah Khan packed for GW last year, she left her swimsuit behind.

The Saudi Arabian native knew she wouldn’t be able to swim in the Lerner Health and Wellness Center because it is open to both male and female students.

If she donned a bathing suit in HelWell, the sophomore would risk being seen without her hijab – a headscarf worn by some Muslim women in public – and in immodest clothing, which goes against the basic tenants of her religion.

But this fall, Khan and other female followers of the Islam religion have the opportunity to dive in.

Last week, the Muslim Students’ Association and the University opened up “Sisters’ Splash,” a female-only hour at the pool.

Every week, GW plans to close the HelWell pool to men and will cover the glass door with a dark tarp, giving female Muslim students the chance to swim at their leisure. The University also hired a female lifeguard to be on duty for each week’s event.

The Muslim Brotherhood founded MSA is steadily plying its sharia at universities across the U.S.

  1. Just imagine if modest christian women wanted that privilege! There would be an uproar. In fact there is an uproar going on right now about a christian woman looking for a christian roommate, not allowed they tell her, and they want to fine her for daring to voice her preference. What a bunch of rank hypocrites!!!

  2. The pace of accommodation in this country is worrisome. I read somewhere, just yesterday, and as recalled by me today in my own words, that the experiment of freedom will be rendered null by the insistence of equality. Unfortunately,

    I believe this to be true. Pretty soon that old saying, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too,” will be obsolete. Instead it will be replaced by an updated version. Oh, I don’t know, something like “You can have your cake and eat it too.” How sad. Especially since I always thought the original saying dealt with consequences. Choose this, and that might happen. But consequences already seem to be relics of the past these days.

  3. I quess Christians could demand this as well. separate swimming as they do in or did in some of the more strict Christian colleges. I think the thought behind it is probably morally based as hormones do roar at that that age. There is probably also a religious motivation that deals with the separation of the “infidels”, from the muslims. Wouldn’t be suprized if these liberal universities had a “gay “swim only period. How about swim with your duckie period, or pet hamster?.

  4. But will non Muslim women be allowed to wear swim suits, or will everyone have to cover up like wet bats?

  5. Bow to your new masters!

  6. What a SICK UNIVERSITY to give into these FOREIGN TRASH. Just proves that the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD is very active here in the U S A to over throw our GOVT. and way of life. Beware the CAMEL is in the TENT. Carefull what you might step in.

  7. Give a muslim an inch and he or she will demand an ell. There is no pleasing this arrogant bunch and all attempts to do so on the part of Americans is an exercise in masachism. Courtesy is regarded as weakness and any concession is considered their due. We need to make life just a little less convenient for these oh so special creatures. If they can’t deal
    with men they should be educated in the moslem equivalent
    of a Carmelite convent..

  8. Send in a bunch of butch lesbians to hoot and holler construction worker style.

    I’d say someone should sue the school for discrimination for not letting males go during those hours. Turn it back on them, and while they’re at it, sue them for violating the establishment clause for doing something that a religion tells them to do, just because a religion tells them to do it.

    I don’t know if that would work, but its worth a shot.

    • Jewish orgs built their own JCC’s to accomodate their own religious restrictions. To this day, JCC’s across the nation open their doors & pools to the entire community as good neighbors. At no time did the Jewish community expect or ask a university to consider accomodating such restrictions for Jews. Why do universities now feel compelled to validate sharia and discriminate against their own? This is insanity. If muslimas want to follow Islamic rules, they can purchase land and build their own facility. Universities have no business encouraging segregation and discrimination.

    • Problem: It’s a private institution (I think). As such, I think that the school was wrong to grant this request.

      • Sharia doesn’t discriminate – it will creep in public, private, or any other type of institution. That is a problem.

      • Great Horned Pig

        Does George Washington University receive money from the government? If the answer to that question is yes, than it is not a private institution and the rules regarding things like Separation of Church and State should apply. Not to mention that we could than argue that this is state sanctioned discrimination.

  10. I am sick to death of this,,,,,,,,, I truly am. On doing some research it appears that the only place on this planet which is Muslim-free is Guam !!!

  11. This isn’t a Muslim women-only swim hour, it’s a women-only swim hour. I’m sure plenty of non-Muslim women will be relieved to swim in a women-only setting. Plenty of other religions, ethnicities, and cultures care about modesty. Heck, plenty of women are just not comfortable being seen in a bathing suit by men. I don’t think this is a big deal.

    Besides, I don’t see any evidence of demands or threats here- it sounds as if it’s more of a courtesy to our fellow human beings, who happen to believe in certain standards of modesty for themselves.

    • Caryn,

      Maybe, some non Muslim women like this idea for reasons that have nothing to do with appeasing Islam, but is this discrimination justified, regardless of that?

  12. Mary, you took the words right out of my mouth.

    My don’t the Muslims do what we do, as Jews, and build a pool for observant people………..or wear the great Aussie invention the burquini

  13. I BLAME THE SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS IN AMERICA & WESTERN NATIONS ON THE LIBERALS AND THE ‘PROGRESSIVES’

    Who are progressively leading their nations and societies to a dead end, and into great chaos by their determined attempts to impose their intolerant and despiritualising religion of secularism on their whole nations. And they are seemingly in connivance with radical Islam to make it easy for the very determined Islamists on their march to take over and destablise western nations which have deep roots in Christian traditions.

    So it will be good if every westerner can take heed of the sadness and the alarm raised by Pope Benedict during his recent visit to Britain: about the liberals’ alarming marginalisation of Christian values and traditions from the Christian nations of Great Britain, Germany, and Western Europe with their hypocritical hues and cries over the need to separate the State from religion.

    But when it comes to religions like islam, liberals and progressives often go soft and/or into hibernation, with their specious lines that they have the rights to express and practise their foreign cultures without the need to observe the eclectic values and usefulness of their minority cultures to make themselves and their host countries better.

    So I am still waiting for loud-mouths with the likes Michael Moore of the Fahrenheit infamy on what they have to say when the lives and democratic and liberal rights of patriotic people of conscience (like Geert Wilders) to meaningful free expressions are being threatened and shamefully taken away from them.

    By all means people who tell lies and incite hatred and murders got to be hauled to court and punished. But not for people who speak factually and have the interests of their countries and societies in their warm hearts.

    So “Inspire me, Lord, to be thankful to Thee for Thy favours to me and my loved ones to do good deeds which will please Thee. Admit me, through Thy mercy, to be among Thy righteous. For the noblest in God’s sight is he/she who is the most righteous.”

    Amen!

  14. I have not read any of the prior comments, but as GWU is a private school, whatever happened to saying “No”?

  15. All the previous posts have made the point. The only thing I can add is that is this government is exceedingly muslim compliant and goes out of its way to not only accomodate islam but to pour taxpayer dollars into muslim outreach programs within the US and around the world. I may have the dates wrong but it does seem that when Obama got elected, many more institutions took the islamic lead knowing they would receive every help from this particular administration.

    • ISLAMISTS HAVE VERY MUCH TO THANK THE LIBERALS AND ‘PROGRESSIVES’ FOR THE FAVOURABLE TIDE THEY ARE NOW ENJOYING IN WESTERN SOCIETIES

      Many felt the same way too, “kcramone”. Obama and many western governments are getting to be too indulgent on Muslims and to their compalints and hypersensitivity.

      This will ultimately work against the interests and long term viability of the western societies to exist as a cohesive and harmonious nations as most Muslims in the west will be importing the dysfunctionality and backwardness of their broken-down Islamic societies.

      Moreover, most Muslims are unthankful and generally not reciprocating; and needlessly whining and ever-complaining. They are easy preys for the jihadistic narratives of the Islamists who are of course cheering at the favourable tide they are now enjoying, thanks for the tremendous help they are getting from the feckless liberals and the traitorous, anti-Christian secularists.

  16. While I hate the outrageous demands that Muslims have made in the past few years a WOMEN only swim time is a fairly common occurance. After all, Curves and other women only gyms are popular and many coed gyms have women only sections and pool times. The gym I go to is partially city funded and there is a women only, men only, adult only and over 65. I go to a church that teaches modesty and while I am ok with mixed swimming more than a few women in my denomination would prefer a women only swim time. At a conference a few years ago they closed the hotel pool to men for two hours so the women could enjoy the pool. I felt this was a little much but I kept my
    mouth shut. If there was no suit restriction I would be ok with it too- none of this burkini garbage.
