Here’s a sign of the changing times — Muslim cabbies now have their very own place at San Francisco International Airport to wash their hands and feet before they pray.

Under Islamic law, Muslims are required to pray five times a day — a ritual that also calls for a ceremonial cleansing.

For many cab drivers, that’s meant either lugging bottled water around or using one of the bathrooms inside the terminal to wash — a practice not always welcomed by airport passengers.

So Royal Cab driver Hasan Khan, 52, a Pakistani immigrant, collected some 300 signatures from fellow cabbies, urging the airport to give them their own cleansing station.

Airport brass obliged — and the wash equipment was installed on the ground floor of the main garage, right next to where the drivers congregate for their breaks.

“The way we look at it…this was in the interest of maintaining a good relationship with ground transportation providers,’’ says airport spokesman Doug Yakel.

As for using public resources?

Yes, your taxpayer dollars are being used. But as usual, for Muslims, it’s ok.

Yakel says the costs were nominal, with the work done by in-house plumbers.

As for Khan, he recognizes not everyone might appreciate the religious accommodation. But then he points out that Christians generally pray at church on Sundays — while for him and his fellow working Muslims, the ritual is woven into their daily routine.

And from the looks of things, they’re grateful.

“We are very happy,’’ said Ahmed Algazali, 49, a fellow driver from Yemen as he prepared to join Khan for a late-afternoon garage prayer.

      • Nothing is being done to stop this. We all talk but are being dictated to. If someone is scheduled to speak out against this then the lecture or event is forced to be cancelled. The Muslim Brotherhood has already infiltrated into our government, the Koran is being taught in schools. We are doing everything to accomodate them and so they will never assimilate. I don’t understand why they come to America if they want to live as they did in their 7th century lifestyle. Look at the areas where they live in great numbers – it is just like the places they say they “escaped” from. Well, I would think they would be grateful to live freely. There are “honor killings” going on in every city in America. Who would have believed that a soldier would be beheaded in London. We are not doing anything to stop this. We are accomodating them as if we were a Muslim country.

  1. The Kid From Brooklyn and San Fran Airport cleansing stations! (Video NSFW)

    At San Francisco Airport cleansing stations have been installed to accommodate the religious needs of Muslim cab drivers.

    Around the country, however, the right to simply use the word Christmas has been denied to Christians.

    Why one and not the other? NSFW video.

  2. Christians actually pray daily, and throughout the day. I wonder if when Khan made that up if anyone from the airport of the author of this story had a clue about that?

    • Amen.We Christians are to pray constantly, not 5x daily. I don’t need a space to do that since Jesus of the Holy Bible is alive. I just talk to Him, sometimes out loud, some times silently, often at home on my knees or face.

  3. They have to wash their hands symbolically to cleanse them from the blood of their victims, beheadings ,maiming, stoning, cuttings limbs off and etc. atrocities! San Francisco open your Golden Gate, and walk, or bike, take public transportation ! Demand a Christian church on the premises of the airport! Take Bach America, and have them assimilate, or go back!

  4. The “problem” I have with this, is that “our” TAX DOLLARS are being used for this so-called “Religion!” THAT is a NO! NO! PERIOD!!!

    These “idiotic, ignorant…Mudslimes!” want all these things, let them take-up “donations” from within “their” community to establish and maintain these facilities to “our” Health Standards!


  5. Maybe some Good Ole Boy could accidentally drop a few Chitlins, Cracklins or bacon strips in the terrorist supporters footbath.

  7. One way to counter this nonsense is to have Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Ba’Hais and every other religion you can think of get together and demand similar privileges. It’s either accommodation for everyone or it is for no one. Muslims need to be told in no uncertain terms that in America they’re nothing special. As such, they are not entitled to any special privileges. And if they do get special privileges, then so does everyone else. Let’s ask for special daily services for every religious denomination we have in this country and see how the SF airport brass handles it. It may be that a discrimination lawsuit will be needed to drive the point home, since that’s what it’s all about anyway.

  8. Is there a chapel at the airport for cab drivers? If not, then a Christian needs to take up that petition.

  10. Think about this. There have been Muslim immigrants in America for years, way before 9/11. Did you ever hear about stuff like this? Did they ever demand places to pray or time to pray at the workplace or schools? Even after 9/11. Did you ever read much about them? Only since Obama became pres. and brought the Muslim Brother under his protection and into the WH has this crap started. Obama!

    • I have thought about what you wrote. Yes, there is definitely something to what you believe. I tend to agree with you. Our leaders are selling us out. We will lose our freedom of speech and much more very soon if the people of the U.S.A. don’t stand up and fight this!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
