'Non-Muslim' Father Banned From London Pool

Once again Muslims show the West that they are here to assmilate.....err......I meant impose and dominate. If Islam were so tolerant and accepting why do we see Muslims again and again separating themselves from non-Muslims? Why do we continue to allow people into our countries that are obviously trying to create their own state with in ours? Our British friends are in need of a serious dose of nationalism.

A father has described his anger after he and his son were refused entry to their local swimming pool because they weren't Muslims.

David Toube and Harry, five, were turned away by staff from the men-only session.

The council has now admitted that workers at Clissold Leisure Centre in Hackney, north London, made a mistake and offered the family an apology.

Mr Toube, 39, a lawyer, said they visited the baths at 9am on Sunday.

"I arrived at the pool to discover that they were holding what staff described to me as 'Muslim men-only swimming’," he said.

"I asked whether my son and I could go as we were both male. I was told that the session was for Muslims only and that we could not be admitted."

Mr Toube then spoke to the duty manager, who confirmed he could not enter.

"I asked what would happen if I turned up and insisted I was Muslim.

"The manager suggested that they might ask the Muslims swimming if they minded my son and I swimming with them. If they didn’t object, we might be allowed in."

Mr Toube claimed he was told by a member of staff on a subsequent visit that it was a "requirement of the Muslim religion that Muslims could not swim with non-Muslims".

He said: "I asked him whether Clissold leisure centre would institute whites-only swimming for racists. His answer was that they would if there was sufficient demand."

Mr Toube added: "I spoke to a number of Muslim friends, and none of them had heard of a religious prohibition on swimming with non-Muslims.

"One friend was so disgusted with Hackney for trying to segregate Muslims and non Muslims that he suggested that he take his little daughter swimming with us, just to prove the point."

The "modesty" swimming sessions take place every Sunday from 8am to 9.30am.

Two websites have been advertising them as being for Muslim men only. But Dr Taj Hargey, chair of the Muslim Education Centre of Oxford, said there was no requirement in the Koran for Muslims to avoid swimming with non-Muslims.

"The only requirement is that when women swim they should be modestly clad," he said.

A spokesman for Hackney Council said: "None of Hackney’s leisure centres has religiously segregated swimming sessions in their public timetables. In common with most public swimming facilities, there are single sex sessions, and this session was men only.

"The member of staff in this situation made a mistake and the centre manager is working to ensure that all staff are clear about the timetabled sessions at the centre. Hackney Council would wish to apologise to any member of the public who was given incorrect information at any of our facilities."

I am curious to see the reaction of Muslims in the pool if a non-Muslim is allowed to swim with them.

Reaction of Muslims in the pool if a non-Muslim is allowed to swim with them?

Likely they'd scream, "Ai-li-li-li-li! Allahu Arkhbahr Mohammed Jihad!" as they were crowding past each other to stab the "infidels".

Hayna or no?

About a dozen non-Muslim Brits should get together to go swimming there. Let's see how tolerant they are.

If the English are not welcome there then it is discrimination, pity we have no Muslim council to go crying to.

The Labour Party should just merge with the Muslim Council.

Since they are so particular to segregate and exclude themselves, I wonder what would happen if we started indulging them and boycotting them altogether. No more frequenting muslim owned gas stations, quickie marts, restaurants etc., (Which I try to do already, but for different reasons). Let us hit them where it really hurts - the pocket book. Shame on our own dhimmi establishments for going along with these muslim demands.

I agree, we should never knowingly shop in Muslim owned stores.

In England it is not possible to ask to see another doctoron the grounds the doctor is a Muslim, but it is possible to get around that by asking to see another doctor on the grounds of you cannot understand what they are saying, and you fear mis diagnosis.

Also some Muslim Doctors in the last year of training are refusing to attend lectures concerning STD'S or anything related to contraception, or anything in the A+E Dept that is to do with Alcohol related accident, even drug overdoses.As this is part of their training they are excused that on religious grounds.

Many Muslim shops here in the UK are sweet or Newsagent shops selling among other things Alcohol or many are small convienience stores that are part off licence, no religious morality there then, it is take your money and give you the big bottle of whisky, which proves what a bunch of hypocrites they all are.

Thanks for that info. Obviously they are not there to assimilate.

Christopher Logan said...

Who were the "geniuses" that said it was alright for them to be excused on religious grounds? Why should patients be put at risk for them?

If they cannot do what the job requires they should be fired.

Do you make this nonsense up as you go along, fool!

There are thousands of Muslim GP's and hospital doctors who deal with STD's and A&E drink-related cases.

On your planned (but totally impossible_ boycott of Muslim shops, are you also going to stop driving your car and using electricity, most of which is powered by Arab / Muslim oil?

David Toube is a well-known zionist Islamophobe, who staged, exagerrated and twisted the swimming pool incident for his political ends.

This is the same hypocrite, who while studing at Southampton University, signed a statement which included:

"the Zionist structure of the state of Israel is at the heart of the racism and oppression against the Palestinian people, and should be dismantled.”

as reported in Tony Greensteins blog

The man is a twisted liar, hatemonger and a major apologist for state terrorism.
