Venice pool tries to integrate Muslims…by banning men

via Venice pool bans men to integrate Muslims – The Local. h/t Europe News

A sports club in Mestre, a suburb of Venice, is banning men from the pool and offering women-only sessions only as part of an experiment to integrate the Muslim community.

For the next three Sundays, the pool at Polisportiva Bissuola di Mestre will be open only to women and their children between 9am and 10.30am, the Veneto edition of Corriere reported on Thursday.

The move, launched in coordination with the Italian Union of Sports for All (Usip), is “an opportunity to promote integration and raise awareness of women from different backgrounds,” Ugo Di Mauro, the president of the Bissuola sports club, was quoted as saying in Corriere. Their faith prevents many muslim women from using mixed swimming pools.

Their hate faith needs to integrate…rather than discriminate.

If successful, the initiative will be extended, Di Mauro added.

He was inspired to follow in the footsteps of a Turin sports club, which adopted the initiative and saw a 50 percent increase in the number of women using the pool.

“There was real integration, and it was an important opportunity to pave the way towards opening up links and expanding knowledge; we hope the same thing happens here.”

Can anyone explain how banning men from a public pool so Muslim women can swim alone is “real integration”?

More than 1.5 million Muslims live in Italy, according to figures from the Pew Research Centre, making them Italy’s second-largest religious group.

It’s happening across the U.S. too, wherever Muslim populations grow.

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.

Islam’s contribution to America: Snipers, Black Hawks, F-16’s, lockdowns & mass spying at Super Bowl

via Super Bowl Snipers – My9 New Jersey. h/t Drudge

East Rutherford, New Jersey (My9NJ) – Along with excited and eager fans, SWAT teams and Snipers will be attending Super Bowl XLVIII. The reason for such high precautions is because the Super Bowl is a level one national security event.

Former FBI agent Jonathan Gilliam explains how snipers work in coordination with SWAT teams to give the fans and players ultimate safety.

“If you have an active shooter or you have anyone who may have a bomb. Snipers have a better angle then anyone who is on the ground to actually hit that target. It’s an entire team that communicates. You have individuals who are at high altitudes inside the arena and then you have individuals that are on the ground moving in and around the crowd,” he explained.

via No-fly zone over MetLife Stadium

The skies above and around MetLife Stadium will be in a no-fly zone on Super Bowl Sunday.

The first level of defense will be provided by Black Hawk helicopters with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The unarmed helos will serve as the eyes in the sky.

Customs & Border protection will fly Black Hawks over the Super Bowl in New Jersey but can’t protect our borders from Mexico?

And if a hostile aircraft enters restricted air space near MetLife stadium, New Jersey Air National Guard F-16s based in Atlantic City will be scrambled.

More fear-mongering and martial law-like activities: Attack on mass transit seen as top Super Bowl security risk

Security screening will start at train stations, where fans will not be able to board stadium-bound trains or buses without tickets to the game, officials said.

Or without passing through a security checkpoint manned by TSA agents.

The stadium is located about 10 miles west of New York City, the site of the September 11, 2001, attacks. It has been locked down all week, and authorities are scanning all vehicles that go in, a practice that will continue on game day, officials said.

Bratton noted that New York police were using extensive intelligence-gathering operations developed since the World Trade Center attack to watch for possible threats.

At an undisclosed location near the stadium, officials from some 100 security agencies are monitoring feeds related to security concerns 24 hours a day, Fuentes said.

Tom Nolan, chairman of the criminal justice department at the State University of New York in Plattsburgh. “You have to accept some degree of risk and you have to accept a new level of intrusion into your privacy.”

We should never accept any level of intrusion that is neither legal nor Constitutional and certainly not from totalitarian authorities who are afraid to even utter the words Islam or jihad. The Tom Nolan’s are the real Islamophobes and the military industrial complex and psychopaths who profit from it maximize this fear to submit us all.

That said, there is a desperation in the air, Obama and team have promised “action” so beware a false flag to further strip Americans of their rights.

Canada: City rec center discriminates against woman to accommodate Muslim

Enforcing the sharia in Canada. via Sun News : Halifax martial arts class separated by gender to accommodate Muslim man. h/t GT

HALIFAX — Politicians are scrambling to put a brave face on an ugly situation at a Halifax recreation centre.

Sonja Power, 17, was on the cusp of earning her black belt in Aikido at a Halifax dojo when a new man joined the class. He refused to be in contact with women or to spar with any of the female students.

Power and the other women were told to stay on one side of the room and not to approach the Muslim man to respect his faith.

“I felt like a second class citizen, that I was so disgusting and unworthy that this man doesn’t even want to interact with me,” Power told QMI Agency. “It doesn’t make any sense, why would something you choose, your religion, trump something I’m born with, my gender, we wouldn’t let a religion trump someone’s race.”

The incident happened more than a year ago and Power’s mother, Michele Walsh, said she has contacted every level of government but was ignored. She said the sensei told her to “get used to” gender separation in Canada.

A similar situation at York University reignited the issue.

“I don’t think anybody’s rights should be trampled, so as a person of faith and as a woman I would be offended by this on both sides,” said Candice Bergen, minister of state for Social Development speaking in Halifax. “We’ve seen organizations across the country for decades being able to (compromise) there’s no reason this organization and this individual not to be able to do that.”

Religion and gender are both protected human rights.

The City of Halifax, which owns the recreation centre, refused to comment citing privacy concerns, but said the city tries to work out human rights concerns between the parties.

Washington: At least 8 King County pools offer sharia-compliant swims for Muslims

Three owned by the city of Seattle.

Sharia swim

What’s wrong with this picture? Sisters Faisa Farole, 33, left, and Jamila Farole, 28, want to preserve sharia compliant swim times at the Tukwila Pool.

 

via Women-only swim times spark emotional debate | The Seattle Times.

A 90-minute time slot on Sunday afternoons, when women can swim at a public pool in Tukwila removed from men, has led to some awkward conversations around gender and religion in one of the region’s most diverse cities.

In recent months, some Tukwila residents and City Council members have raised concerns that the women-only swims amount to gender inequality — with some going as far as to call it reminiscent of the Jim Crow era of separate accommodations.

When pool staff introduced the special swim this past summer, they also set aside swim time for men, ensuring the city would be on firm legal footing, although the male-only slot is seeing low attendance.

It all came to a head last week when about 40 people attended a sometimes emotional meeting of the Tukwila Pool Metropolitan Park District to urge commissioners, who are also the City Council members, to keep the gender-separate swims — even though there was no specific proposal on the table to end it.

On any given Sunday, around 30 women use the pool — their reasons ranging from body image to their religion’s mandate for modesty.

One woman told commissioners at the meeting: “I’m considered brash and forward, but when I strip down to my swimsuit, I’m not: I’m old, I’m fat and things hang.”

Another, Jamila Farole, 28, a Muslim woman who along with four of her sisters began renting the pool three years ago so they and other women could swim in privacy, said “there’s a huge demand and need for female-only swim time.” Continue reading

Minnesota: YMCA and St. Paul Police Dept organize sharia swim time for Muslims

All men and infidels (except female lifeguards) are banned. Presumably enforced by the St. Paul sharia cops…who also double as Muslim taxi cabs. via St. Paul YMCA and police start Somali girls swim group | Star Tribune.

ows_138473865637724Rayan Dhamuke, 12, doesn’t get to swim a lot, unlike her brothers. During the past summer, she had to visit the pool at 5 a.m. so that she would have the privacy she needed to enjoy the water while still adhering to her family’s cultural and religious beliefs.

Apparently reporter Nicole Norfleet cannot bring herself to pen the word sharia. But that’s exactly what this is.

To better accommodate girls like Dhamuke, the downtown St. Paul YMCA, in partnership with the St. Paul Police Department, has started a swim group for Somali-American girls. The group, which began in October, is serving as an outlet for girls ages 5 to 17 to learn the basics of swimming.

Their being Somali is somewhat insignificant. If they were atheists, Christians, Jews or Hindu’s from Somalia – they’d swim with the rest of us.

Special considerations have to be made to address modesty concerns so that the Muslim girls can swim and not reveal too much of themselves.

To abide by…sharia law.

During the hourlong swim practice, all other swimmers are cleared out of the pool. The men’s locker room is locked. Female life guards are brought in. The pool, which is on the building’s third floor, has no windows so they don’t have to worry about prying eyes from outside.

St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith had discussions with Britts to let the Y know that, through the department’s connections with the Somali-American community, they had learned that such a group was needed.

“I think this is just a great opportunity for them to learn basic skills that we take for granted,” said Sgt. Jennifer O’Donnell, who has worked with the Somali community regularly during her time with the department.

What about the basic skill of integration? Barring any safety issues of swimming fully clothed, Muslims can walk into any YMCA during any swim time and swim. That they choose not to – because they don’t want to swim with infidels or men in accordance with Islamic sharia law – doesn’t mean that Americans take learning to swim for granted. O’Donnell is an embarrassment.

“We have to have privacy,” said Ubah Ali, Dhamuke’s mother.

No – you want privacy. It really begs the question, if they want to live under sharia, why did they come to the U.S.?

For years, Ali said she has been trying to find a place where her daughter could swim, but nothing seemed to work. Not knowing how to swim is a safety risk, especially in the state of 10,000 lakes, Ali said.

Because a Muslim girl could slip and fall into a lake at any time in Minnesota. Absurdity.

Hani Hussein, who volunteers at the Al-Ihsan Islamic Center in St. Paul, said she looked into reserving public pools for girls, but it was too expensive.

“I really wanted the girls to come swim to learn not only how to swim but to build their confidence,” Hussein said.

Funding for the group comes from two metrowide water safety grants from Hawkins Inc. and Abbey’s Hope Charitable Foundation. The police department helps provide transportation for the girls to the YMCA.

Taxpayers now pay St. Paul cops to taxi Muslims to sharia-compliant swim classes. It’s creeping along in many cities:

Former NFL safety Hamza Abdullah, who along with his younger brother Husain, chose to take off the 2012 NFL season to pursue his Muslim faith, went on a lengthy and profane rant against the NFL on Twitter Thursday morning.

Although Husain Abdullah, 28, returned to the NFL this season, signing a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, 30-year-old Hamza did not get any opportunities despite eight years in the league.

It’s not clear what triggered Abdullah’s lengthy Twitter expression, which started with criticisms of fellow Muslims and then switched to the NFL’s treatment of its players, specifically safety and health.

Abdullah’s phone was off as the tweets went viral Thursday morning, raising some concern about his well-being. But a person close to Abdullah told USA TODAY Sports he had been in touch with family members, including his brother, Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah, and everything was OK.

A league spokesman said in an email to USA TODAY Sports the NFL’s Player Engagement staff “is reaching out to (Abdullah) to see if we can be of assistance.”

A concussion, the fourth of his career, ended Husain Abdullah’s 2011 season with the Minnesota Vikings. Hamza, who played for four teams from 2005-2011, seems to intimate in his tweets that he also suffered his own head trauma while playing.

Here’s Hamza Abdullah in his own words, with multiple profanities blacked out:

“[EXPLETIVE] you NFL for lying to these people and denying the fact that football causes brain damage.”

“Every player understood the risks of playing football, and we did it, and would do it over again!”

“We just thought/assumed we would be taken care of after we were done.”

“[EXPLETIVE] you NFL for denying players their benefits and making us go through these [EXPLETIVE] hoops.”

“[EXPLETIVE] you NFL because you are the plantation and WE are the slaves!!! #IfYouThinkOtherwiseYouAreDelusional”

“[EXPLETIVE you NFL for that slave trade you call the “NFL COMBINE”, where you strip us of our manhood”

“[EXPLETIVE] you NFL for wanting players to kill themselves so you can show the “SLAVES” what life off the plantation is”

He continues further, describing some of the suicidal impulses that many former players recently expressed in the PBS documentary League of Denial.

“How many former players have to kill themselves before you guys [expletive] realize, that they’re pushing us to it.”

“I’ve thought about that, and the only reason I won’t, is because I’m Muslim.”

“But I do think about if my families life would be better, if I wasn’t here.”

“Every time I go to sleep, I pray that Allah takes care of my family, just in case I don’t wake up.”

“And quietly, I’m disappointed sometimes when I do wake up.”

“I’m married to a beautiful wife, have 3 beautiful children, and my financially GOOD, yet I don’t want to wake up.”

“[EXPLETIVE] you Roger Goodell. You would sell your [expletive] soul for a dollar.”

“[EXPLETIVE] you NFL for making people like my brother sign injury waivers that say if they get hurt they get NOTHING!”

“[EXPLETIVE] you NFL. You got too greedy.”

Four hours later, Abdullah apologized for his language, but not the content of his tweets.

What’s more dangerous to one’s mental health, becoming a Muslim and going on hajj or getting hit too many times on the football field?

UK: Sharia compliant women-only tennis sessions launched in growing Muslim enclave

This is how sharia creeps when the population becomes increasingly Muslim – more than 25% in this case, courtesy of the failed immigration policy of the spiteful multi-culti Brit political class. via Women-only tennis sessions launched in Blackburn (From Lancashire Telegraph).

A WOMEN-ONLY tennis morning has been launched in Blackburn.

Women can play on the private outdoor courts, at Crosshill Tennis Club, Corporation Park, every Tuesday, at 10.30am.

The privacy of the courts makes them suitable for Muslim women, director Waqar Hussain said, although everybody is welcome.

He said: “The local women wanted something to do, and somewhere private, something without a car, and in the local area.”

Mr Hussain said he welcomed the debate on the clash between tennis rules and Islam. The Women’s Tennis Association rules said players should not wear sweatshirts, sweat pants, T-shirts, jeans, or cut-offs.

In 2005, tennis pro Sania Mirza was the subject of a fatwa, or legal pronouncement in Islam, by clerics calling on her to change her outfit.

Mr Hussain said: “One or two members used to be very good and used to play in tracksuit bottoms and headscarves. This group is mums knocking a ball about, not doing much running, so they don’t necessarily need to dress up.”

In other words they don’t need to follow club or tennis rules, just sharia.

The tennis club can be contacted on 07814 589090.

Thanks to Islam, purses, seat cushions, coolers banned from NFL games

It’s certainly not illegal immigrants they are worried about so it must be terrorists.

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”― Benjamin Franklin

The ever-expanding government-run police state. via NFL bans purses, seat cushions, coolers from games in new security measure | Fox News.

Forget about bringing your big purse or backpack — or even a cooler — to NFL games this season. They’ll all be banned, along with seat cushions and camera bags, at all NFL stadiums beginning with preseason games.

In a press release Thursday, the NFL Committee on Stadium Security said to a provide a “safer environment” and to “expedite fan entry,” NFL teams will implement a policy that will limit the size and types of bags that can be brought into stadiums.

Prohibited items include purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, seat cushions, cinch bags or camera bags.

Game-goers are allowed to bring in bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”. One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags are also allowed. NFLShop.com and club merchandise outlets will be selling official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags.

“Our fans deserve to be in a safe and secure environment,” NFL vice president and chief security officer Jeffrey Miller said in a statement. “Public safety is our top priority. This will make the job of checking items much more efficient and effective. We will be able to deliver a better and quicker experience at the gates and also provide a safer environment. We appreciate our fans’ cooperation.”

The statement said that stadiums will establish a secondary perimeter around the stadium where security will check for prohibited items.

“This establishes a protected buffer area for fans in plaza-level areas and at the queues for stadium entry,” it said. “Any prohibited bag inside the second perimeter will be highly visible and more quickly resolved.”

Fans with bags that do not meet the criteria will be turned away from the stadium. The committee is encouraging stadiums to provide temporary storage facilities for banned items well outside the bag-restricted area.

 Actually we should thank feckless politicians in the U.S. who use the threat of terrorism to subjugate Americans under the guise of fighting terrorism (while ignoring the threat of sharia and jihad). Previously:

Ontario: YMCA starts sharia compliant swim hours

Blazing Cat Fur titles it: CEO Of Sault Ste. Marie YMCA Shocked To Find People Aren’t Buying Into Her Multiculty Bullshit Sharia Law.

via Female-only swims take heat | Sault Star.

SAULT STE. MARIE – It appears some would like nothing better than to sink female-only swims, recently launched at the Sault Ste. Marie YMCA.

Critics charge the concept, geared to cultures and religions that forbid mixed-gender pool outings, is everything from sexist to an attempt by Muslims to bring in Sharia law via the back door.

Kim Caruso is not amused. The YMCA CEO has shouldered a number of e-mails, phone calls and face-to-face encounters with opponents of the Sunday afternoon, one-hour swims, which debuted earlier this month.

Complaints began coming in as soon as The Sault Star and other local media profiled the event weeks ago. More anger erupted following a more recent television report, which aired Wednesday and Thursday.

Caruso began receiving e-mails early Wednesday evening while the broadcast was still in progress, and her office phone began to ring following the noon report Thursday.

A male caller was civil, while a female screamed through the line.

“I thanked her very much and hung up,” Caruso said. “I put an end to the conversation because it wasn’t going to get anywhere.”

To ensure privacy, the pool-viewing gallery is blocked off, windows covered and doors locked on the pool deck.

All staff are female. Children are permitted; males must be six and under.

Caruso said the event serves many purposes.

“Some women who are overweight might not feel comfortable swimming in mixed company, so this is for them as well,” she added.

The swim was the brainchild of Jane Omollo, co-ordinator of the Sault Community Career Centre’s New to the Sault program.

Omollo, of Kenyan descent, moved to the city eight years ago. She said given the recent influx of immigrants, thanks to Essar Steel Algoma, not to mention the many foreign students attending both Algoma University and Sault College, the city’s ethnic makeup is getting a mix-up.

Female-only swims are not a foreign concept in many larger centres and Omollo sees no reason why the idea can’t blossom here — but is dismayed, not surprised, by naysayers.

“Change is not easy,” she said.

“It does not matter what type of change it is, you always have people who are opposed to it and people who are for it. For me, it’s just part of that whole complex area of something new that is being introduced that people are not used to. We’ll have a few people who will say what they need to say because of freedom of speech.”

“To me, it draws a picture in my mind of somebody who is not well-travelled, not aware that change is happening, not only here in the Sault but everywhere in Canada and everywhere in the world,” she said. “There are people living in their own bubble.”

Spoken like a true Islamic supremacist. There’s nothing complex about it. Integrate. Assimilate. The change happening around the world is Islamization. Sharia. Ushered in by people like Caruso and when that fails by the sword or bomb.

Michael-Lee Valois doesn’t believe he’s living in a bubble, but a country that must stand on guard against influences that could alter its core values.

“They’re trying to sneak in, indirectly and quietly, Sharia law. I don’t agree with that. I don’t agree religion, it doesn’t matter whose religion, should be entering the YMCA, a public kind of institution.”

Ironic. Young Men’s Christian Organization.

Caruso is determined critics won’t throw cold water on future swims, the next being Sunday, noon to 1 p.m.

“It’s easy to shy away from this situation, easy to not do anything and not be public about what we’re doing,” she said. “But I think in our values at the Y we have a responsibility to help improve the situation and, really, cultural diversity is good for everybody.”

Caruso cites her husband, Pat, who is of Italian descent, describing the discrimination his forefathers likely endured at the hands of those already established here at the time.

We can cite 1,400 years of actual – not likely – discrimination and conquest by Muslims against non-Muslims. The trail is bloody. Islam means submission.

Toronto: Sharia swim times prevent dad from watching own daughter’s swim class

Creeping along in Toronto where at least 9 public pools are subject to Islamic sharia law. via Sun News : Toronto dad not allowed to watch daughter’s swim class for religious reasons.

TORONTO – When a single dad signed his nine-year-old daughter up for female-only swim lessons, he didn’t realize he — as a man — was going to be banned from watching her practice.

Chris (who didn’t want his last name published) was shocked when he had the blinds to the viewing area of the Dennis R. Timbrell Recreation Centre pool in Flemingdon Park shut on him and then was told by staffers it was for “religious reasons.”

“I spoke to a staff member and she told me that it’s because of Muslim women, that we’re not allowed to look at them or whatever,” Chris, 38, told the Toronto Sun Friday. “I don’t think religion has a role to play in a public pool.”

Chris said he enrolled his daughter online through the city’s website and registered her for the Ultra Swim 1: Female class – a nine-week course offered for free at the community centre.

Nowhere on the form did it mention that males could not watch the lessons.

So, when he showed up with his child at the pool on March 28 and again on Thursday night, he was confused when told he wasn’t allowed to watch.

“She doesn’t have a lot of friends and I wanted her to swim with girls,” Chris explained. “I don’t know what parent wouldn’t want to watch their child participate. There were other fathers there who weren’t too happy.”

Local Councillor John Parker hadn’t heard of the particular case until the Sun contacted him Friday, but said the dad’s point is a “legitimate one” and raises a “fair issue.”

“If we have a young child and there is a desire for the parent to provide supervision I would hope that we would not be so inflexible,” he said.

The Ward 26-Don Valley West councillor said there are only so many hours available in the pool.

“So we have to decide and we have to determine just what are the options that are available to us and how many hours are there in the day to allow the different options that communities want,” Parker said. “So far the pressure has been to provide hours for women only, this gives rise to the legitimate question: ought we to find time for mixed groups precisely to accommodate the concern that this parent has raised.”

FIFA bans Muslim exec for life after “repeated violations”

via Bin Hammam resigns from all football positions | International Soccer – The News Tribune.

Mohamed bin Hammam resigned from all soccer-related posts and received a new lifetime ban from FIFA on Monday, perhaps closing one of the most damaging corruption scandals to hit the sport’s world governing body.

Bin Hammam, a FIFA executive committee member from Qatar who challenged incumbent Sepp Blatter for the presidency last year, gave up his long-running dispute with the organization after being found guilty by FIFA of “repeated violations” of its code of ethics while head of the Asian Football Confederation.

FIFA said the 63-year-old bin Hammam sent a resignation letter to both FIFA and the AFC on Saturday.

“Mr. Mohamed bin Hammam … has resigned from all his positions in football with immediate effect and will never be active in organized football again,” a FIFA statement said.

Bin Hammam, who has always denied wrongdoing, had no immediate comment on FIFA’s announcement.

Controversy has swirled around bin Hammam in recent years – he had also been fighting a separate life ban imposed by FIFA following allegations he offered bribes to voters when running against Blatter.

FIFA said the second life ban is a result of the final report from the chairman of its ethics committee, Michael J. Garcia.

“That report showed repeated violations of Article 19 (Conflict of Interest) of the FIFA Code of Ethics of Mohamed bin Hammam during his terms as AFC President and as member of the FIFA executive committee in the years 2008 to 2011, which justified a life-long ban from all football-related activity,” the statement said.

According to the Malaysia-based AFC, a yearlong audit revealed “infringements” regarding the “execution of certain contracts” and tampering with the organization’s bank accounts while president. As a result, Garcia and the AFC ordered probes into how bin Hammam managed the accounts.

The reputation of bin Hammam, who was elected AFC president in 2002, has been in tatters since a bribery scandal erupted in May 2011 – a week before the FIFA presidential election.

The Qatari withdrew his bid just hours before FIFA provisionally suspended him, allowing Blatter to be re-elected unopposed.

FIFA used evidence from whistleblowers that pointed to bin Hammam handing out $40,000 in cash bribes to officials in each of 24 Caribbean soccer nations during his campaign visit to Trinidad. He was banned for life in July 2011, but that was lifted a years later by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. He denied any wrongdoing, claiming the FIFA investigations were politically motivated to protect Blatter.

The Islamic bloc at the UN (IOC) is probably offering Hammam a job right now. But not to worry, FIFA is still infiltrated and FIFA Vice President Prince Ali Bin al-Hussein of Jordan – who has begun Islamizing FIFA is still around.
