Minnesota: G.I.R.L.S program enforcing sharia on basketball court in Cedar Rivers

Why is the white American woman telling these girls to “make sure to stay covered”? And why is the black news “reporter” enthusiastically perpetuating myths about Islam? via Cedar Riverside girls basketball designs own uniforms – KMSP-TV.

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) – The Cedar Riverside Community School girls’ basketball team is asking for parents’ opinions about their new uniforms. The girls designed the options themselves to be both religiously appropriate according to Somali culture, with a little help from the University of Minnesota. Parents were invited to see the unveiling and share their thoughts Wednesday evening at the Brian Coyle Center.

On Wednesday nights, the gym at the Brian Coyle Center is “NBA” — no boys allowed. However, playing sports can be difficult for the girls, who are from East Africa, because they have to be covered from head to toe.

“Seeing them trip over their skirts, seeing them not be able to be safe and be active at the same time is really hard,” coach Jennifer Weber said.

That’s why the girls, with some help from grad students at the University of Minnesota, came up with several designs for new sports uniforms that are both culturally and religiously appropriate. Some even got to model the final four to get feedback from their parents and community members. The uniforms are made with wicking fabrics that move perspiration away from their bodies to keep them from overheating. Plus, since they’re designed for young girls, there was plenty of pink involved.

The G.I.R.L.S program received a grant from the Extension Service at the U of M to work on the designs and prototypes. Organizers hope to find women in the Somali community to sew the uniforms by next spring after the vote, then, they’ll have a community fashion show.

 Stretch your imagination out ten, twenty, thirty years. Does anyone really want America to look more like the third world countries conquered by Islam?

Colorado: City changing pool rules for fully clad Muslim woman

They are smoking the good stuff in Commerce City.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – A Colorado city is promising to revise its swimsuit rules after a Muslim woman was turned away from its recreation center pool for wearing an Islamic dress over a shirt and pants.

Saba Ali told KMGH-TV that she offered to just wear the shirt and pants to swim on Sunday but was denied.

Commerce City spokeswoman Michelle Halsted says street clothes aren’t allowed in the pool because they can increase the likelihood of contamination and waterborne illness.

She says full body swimsuits and rash guards used by surfers and scuba divers are allowed. The city will update its swimwear brochure to include burkinis– loose fitting full-body swimsuits with a hood made for Islamic women.

 And they’ll be sued when this broad or someone like her drowns.

Terror-linked CAIR demands NFL clarify Muslim prayer policy, NFL jumps to clarify

The NFL moved as if they were about to be beheaded by ISIS terrorists, issuing a tweet at 8:30AM the morning after the Monday night game. And many dhimmis joined them for the ride.

via NFL says Chiefs’ Husain Abdullah shouldn’t have been penalized for slide, prayer in end zone | The Kansas City Star.

Husain Abdullah is a devout Muslim. He’s also a safety for the Chiefs, and he made a promise to himself if he ever did find himself in the end zone.

“If I get a pick, I’m going to prostrate before God Allah in the end zone,” Abdullah said.

Early in the fourth quarter, Abdullah dropped deep in a zone coverage, read Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s eyes and broke hard, intercepting his pass.

Just nights after a devout Muslim beheaded a woman in Oklahoma, and a 2nd devout Muslim was arrested for threatening to behead a woman

His celebration drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but the NFL said Tuesday that Abdullah should not have been penalized.

The league’s rule book prohibits players from celebrating while on the ground, but spokesman Michael Signora wrote in an email Tuesday that “the officiating mechanic in this situation is not to flag a player who goes to the ground as part of religious expression, and as a result, there should have been no penalty on the play.”

There are exceptions made for religious expressions, such as Tim Tebow’s prayer while kneeling. But Abdullah may have drawn the flag by sliding with both knees into the prayer.

“For me, I just got a little too excited,” Abdullah said. “I think it was for the slide.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a civil liberties and advocacy organization, issued a statement early Tuesday asking that the NFL take steps in response to the penalty.

“To prevent the appearance of a double standard, we urge league officials to clarify the policy on prayer and recognize that the official made a mistake in this case,” CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said.

Game officials didn’t say anything to Abdullah after the play, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid did when Abdullah came to the sideline.

“He said, ‘You can’t slide,’” Abdullah said.

Although Reid isn’t sure that should be the case.

“When you go to Mecca, you should be able to slide wherever you want,” Reid said after the game. “We’ve got two priests in here. They’d probably vouch for me.”

Abdullah has a special place in mind for the football he intercepted from Brady, a future Hall of Famer.

“That’s nice,” Abdullah said. “That’s definitely going up in the house. That’s a ball that’s definitely going up in the game room area, so it was amazing.”

Does Reid know that he, as a non-Muslim, is banned from Mecca?

North Dakota: Three Muslims charged with terrorizing soccer players, chased with knife, hammers, shears

A fourth was sent to juvenile detention. via Three men charged with terrorizing. h/t ninjapundit

Three Mandan brothers are in custody at Burleigh County Detention Center after they allegedly chased and threatened three other men following a soccer game Friday night.

Ali Mutleq, 25; Omar Mutleq, 20; and Abedalfattah Mutleq, 18, appeared in South Central District Court Monday on one charge each of Class C felony terrorizing.

According to Bismarck Police Sgt. Mark Buschena, all six men, plus an unnamed 16-year-old boy, were playing a soccer game at Cottonwood Park, 2800 S, 12th St., when one of the brothers allegedly got upset at a foul.

The witnesses — a 25-year-old Bismarck man, a 39-year-old Bismarck man and a 29-year-old Mandan man — told police that the three brothers, and the juvenile, chased after them with a knife, a set of shears and hammers.

Police located the Mutleq brothers, and the juvenile, in a vehicle matching the witnesses’ description. Police arrested the three men and took them to Burleigh County Detention Center. The teen was taken to the Youth Correctional Center in Mandan.

Judge David Reich set bond for each man at $5,000 cash at their Monday hearing.

In Dearborn, we saw a similar terror act where a Muslim killed a soccer referee.

Buffalo: NCAA wrestling rules don’t apply to bearded Muslim wrestler

via Muslim wrestler goes to the mat for his religious beliefs – City & Region – The Buffalo News. h/t Islamist Watch

Muhamed McBryde has loved wrestling ever since he can remember, but when he had to choose between shaving his beard and competing for the University at Buffalo, the decision was easy.

McBryde sat on the sidelines.

The pre-med student believes shaving the beard would compromise his faith. He is Muslim.

Even though NCAA rules clearly state that all competing wrestlers must be cleanshaven, the 17-year-old junior said he never considered getting rid of his facial hair.

“My religion says you’re supposed to keep a beard,” said McBryde of Buffalo.

His refusal to shave, though, cost him nearly a full season of competition.

McBryde, who was home-schooled and graduated from community college, joined the university wrestling team last summer as a walk-on. He said he missed probably 20 dual matches after head coach John Stutzman informed him last December that he could not compete in tournaments because of the beard.

Stutzman gave McBryde the option of continuing with the team, and he decided to stay. Stutzman was out of town and unavailable to comment for this story, according to UB assistant athletic director for communications Jonathan E. Fuller.

McBryde and his father, Mustafa – with assistance from a national Muslim civil rights group – pressed the university to request a rules waiver from the NCAA.

Their persistence paid off in April, when the NCAA Wrestling Rules Committee granted a waiver, allowing McBryde to compete with a beard during the 2014-15 season, as long as he wears a face mask and chin strap to cover it. The university will have to make an additional request for a waiver for any other seasons in which McBryde competes.

“We were just looking for reasonable accommodations for a practicing Muslim,” said Mustafa McBryde, a former high school and collegiate wrestler. “A lot of Muslims, we just bend to these sorts of things, primarily because we’re not aware of our rights.”

 

FIFA submits again, authorises Muslim head covers during games

via AFP: FIFA authorises wearing of veils, turbans during matches.

Football’s world governing body FIFA on Saturday officially authorised the wearing of head covers for religious purposes during matches.

“It was decided that female players can cover their heads to play,” said FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke at a meeting of the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the sport’s lawmakers, in Zurich.

That will allow female Muslim players who wear a veil in everyday life to cover their heads during matches, and Valcke added that male players will also be authorised to do so following a request from the Sikh community of Canada.

“It was decided that male players can play with head cover too,” he said, although they will not be the same as those worn day to day.

“It will be a basic head cover and the colour should be the same as the team jersey.”

The wearing of head covers had been banned until 2012, with FIFA saying that they posed too great a risk of injury to the head or neck.

However, the IFAB then allowed for them to be tested out over a two-year period following a request from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), a trial which proved to be successful.

“It’s a worldwide authorisation,” said Valcke, who confirmed that the hosting of the 2016 women’s under-17 World Cup by the Arab kingdom of Jordan played a part in the authorisation being introduced.

“It was a plus for them to have authorisation from the IFAB for women to be able to play (wearing head covers). It was a request from these (muslim) countries that said it would help support women’s football there.”

However, it seems that not all countries will be supporting the IFAB’s decision.

The French Football Federation (FFF) reacted to the announcement by saying they would continue to ban the wearing of head covers out of respect to France’s status as a secular country.

In a statement sent to AFP on Saturday, the FFF said they will maintain “the prohibition of the wearing of all religious or confessional symbols”.

This is due to the “constitutional and legislative principles of secularism that prevail in our country and figure in its statutes.”

We’ve posted on this saga for some time, here. And what appears to have happened as that Jordan threatened/bought/silenced any dissent, as previously reported:

The panel, known as IFAB, asked in March for further medical advice on whether new designs were safe for women players to wear. Headscarves were banned from FIFA competitions for safety reasons in 2007.

Last month, D’Hooghe said his committee’s tests suggested scarves “represented a danger” to players who could sustain head and neck injuries, or overheat.

That drew an angry response from his FIFA executive committee colleague, Prince Ali of Jordan, who has led a year-long campaign seeking respect for Islamic cultural tradition, and creating more opportunities for women to play, by overturning the ban.

Prince Ali said he was “quite shocked,” and produced medical research which challenged FIFA’s position.

On Friday, D’Hooghe said he would no longer object to the designs after “more discussions” in recent weeks.

“There is no risk of strangulation. I was asked for a medical opinion, and the discussions I had were purely medical,” said the Belgian doctor, who did not elaborate on what swayed his opinion.

D’Hooghe told The Associated Press: “The problems I had (with scarves) were medical, and I don’t have those problems anymore.”

Check his bank account for payments from Jordanian officials or maybe NSA can check phone records to see how many death threats came from the same.
