Despite Previous Strangulations, CAIR Says Burqa Ban at Rye Playland Is Another Case of Islamophobia


(Daily Mail)

Last weekend Muslims furious over a head-scarf ban at Rye Playland got into a brawl with police. They were upset that burqa-clad women were banned from the rides. 15 people were arrested.

It didn’t take long for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to call the move by the park another case of Islamophobia.
The New York Post reported, via ROP:

The finger-pointing is well under way over Tuesday’s melee at Rye Playland involving Muslim holiday parkgoers incensed that they were asked to remove religious headgear on some rides.

Police were called out in force, and 15 people were arrested on charges including disorderly conduct, assault and obstruction of governmental administration.

Despite accusations that Muslims were being targeted because of their religion, it seems clear that the county-owned park’s strict policy — instituted three years ago — is broadly worded to cover all headgear on faster rides, like the Crazy Mouse roller coaster and the Dragon Coaster.

…Groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations are now decrying what they term “this heightened state of Islamophobia.” But what seems to have occurred is a massive case of miscommunication.

Once again, CAIR is completely out of line. Muslim women are being banned from rides for their own protection. Just last year a young Muslim woman was strangled by her burqa in a go-kart accident.
The Daily Mail reported:

A young Muslim woman had died after her burkha became snagged in a go-kart.
The 24-year-old woman, who has not yet been named, died a terrifying death today when a fluttering part of her burkha became caught in the wheels of a go-kart she was driving near the town of Port Stephens, north of Sydney.

The Muslim clothing the woman was wearing flew back as she sped around the track and part of it became entangled in the go-kart’s wheels.

She was strangled in a second and crashed the vehicle.

Maybe the real issue is that CAIR doesn’t care so much for Muslim women or their safety.

    Let them sign an air-tight legal waiver that if their burqa gets stuck in the spokes of the roller coaster and they’re strangled, they/the family/anyone associated with them in any way/CAIR can’t sue. That’ll stop CAIR in its tracks since it’s all about suing.

    I say let them go on the rides. First make them sign agreements that they won’t sue when they’re strangled and decapitated, and then don’t worry about them. Natural selection is a beautiful thing.

    When they file the lawsuit, they will have to name a real party-in-interest. CAIR’s standing might be challenged on the basis that they do not represent American muslims.

    The one in the background of above pic, looks like a man. That is another problem when dressed like this.

    I don’t care but I do!

    What frightens me is one could be carrying a bomb. That doesn’t mean a woman couldn’t be a terrorist, too. This garb may be OK in our nation but seriously, France has the right Idea on this one. Women cannot wear burquas.

    America is the land of the free but being free doesn’t mean because you are of a certain religion, you have the right to break our laws.

    And here is the real issue. STOP STUMPING ON OUR LAWS, STOP CODDLING THOSE WHO COME IN AND THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN US OR ABOVE THE LAW.

    Dear God, common sense but this is not really what they seem to have.

    Those of you who think signing a waiver to permit veiled passengers on amusement rides are missing the point. The safety of every patron on amusement rides are unnecessarily put at risk when veiled passengers are permitted to board. Are you willing to have your child(ren) board an amusement ride which is permitting these veiled passengers on? Recently in the UK, a sixty year old grandmother and her grand-daughter were catapulted from a log flume in an accident, the grandmother’s leg being ripped off. The veil can get caught in gears and wheels and mechanicals which can cause similar completely avoidable catastrophies.

    Then consider, a muslima’s legal waiver will extend no extra protections to the other passengers.

    Just because these pious beligerants sign a waiver doesn’t mean it will hold water in court either. In this case, they are demanding safety rules in an amusement park are trumped by sharia constraints. What makes you think a non-sharia court will be any more recognized by them?

    These pious beligerant’s will simply deny the woman had the authority under allah to give the infidel any legal protections under a court system (rules). Where does it stop?

    No sharia. Lan Astaslem.

    Can we declare a Slavery Free Zone? Prohibit Muslim men from any area where a slave girl is present and wearing compulsory slave garb. This would allow the girls, theoretically, to temporarily and secretly be free from the Muslim males who violently stalk them to enforce slavery.

    These Muslim slave girls fear their Muslim slave masters more than a thrilling ride while wearing mandatory slave garb, the choker headbag. It is insane, but for the threats they face.

    I found an interesting article dealing with chivalry and misogyny: On Chivalry and Internalized Misogyny

    What I would like to see here is a Muslim slave master — a male Muslim — put on one of the dangling choker headbags and demand to go on one of the select rides where the headbags are prohibited. This would isolate out the fear that a Muslim slave girl has of their Muslim slave master, and focus instead on the generic notion of discrimination of Muslims generally. If he does not then the matter is not Islam, but a matter of Muslim male imposition of slavery upon women, regardless of the woman’s religion.

    The Muslim male misogynists here have unclean hands. Don’t let yourself become a pawn in their perverse domination ritual. Call these men stalkers, and exclude them from venues where Muslim women might go in public, so they may be free for just a little while. Would there be “dishonor” to the Muslim slave master if no Muslim males are present? (Like the silently falling trees in the woods, because no one is around to hear it.)

    Oh, goody! Does that mean they are going to ask all eight of the Muslim schools to repudiate the Hamas Covenant for defaming Islam?? That is the crucial first step. That one step would go far to get rid of world-wide “Islamophobia” because it would distinguish between Islam the Religion of Peace and the gutter fascist conspiracy masquerading as a religion that so rightly deserves the contempt of good people everywhere.

    If the gals had really wanted to ride the coaster more than anything else, they could have taken off the head covering and rode; they made their choices, but their prideful arrogance refuses to let it go at that. At least they had a choice — the man too fat for a ride cannot suddenly shed weight, nor can the short person grown a few inches, nor can the pregnant woman leave the fetus on the bench till she gets back. Arrogant, prideful, combative, hateful, prejudiced, bigoted…and those are supposed to be the “good” Muslims.

    [“While brave young Virginia men and women are risking their lives to fight
    terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, Connolly, Moran and Kaine are yucking
    it up with them and slapping each other on the back over at the Marriott,”
    charged VAST Chairman James Lafferty.

    He noted that the three politicians’ campaign war chests are
    heavily funded by radical Islamists who support the mosque.

    Indeed, according to the book, “Muslim Mafia,” Connolly and Moran have received thousands of dollars in donations from several Virginia Islamists under federal investigation for financing terrorism. In addition, the book reveals, Connolly received an $18,758 windfall from the Saudi government’s U.S. public relations firm while fighting to keep open a Saudi-owned madrassa in Northern Virginia also tied to terrorism.

    Dar Al-Hijrah hosted at least two of the 9/11 terrorists who attacked the Pentagon, as well as the Fort Hood terrorist and an al-Qaida sleeper agent convicted of plotting to assassinate President Bush. Ahmed Omar Abu Ali graduated valedictorian from the Saudi madrassa – Islamic Saudi Academy – in Alexandria, Va.]

    Speaker Pelosi: Stand Up for Muslim Women, Not Islamists Like Rauf!

    [Why is Islam given a pass that is not given to Christianity or Judaism?

    Madam Speaker: You are a powerful woman in the world, but you don’t care much about the human rights of hundreds of millions of women and children who need the support of the people like you to gain their individual freedom. You claim to be for the women’s right to choose, but then you ignore the right of women and children to have human dignity!

    A large majority of America’s Muslims, women and girls, are
    living under sharia laws. Stripped of their human dignity.

    You support the construction of the mosque but you don’t support the women and girls who are forced to wear hijabs against their will. Muslim women and girls live in seclusion, on the fringes of society, without recourse because of their families’ religion. In the name of religious freedom, political correctness in America only pleases the patriarchal hierarchy of the Muslim world. In the name of religious freedom, America permits Muslim communities to run a state within a state, perpetuating the patriarchal crimes against helpless women and children who should have their constitutional rights defended.

    When “Muslim men” are given extra privileges that are definitely not
    granted to those of other religions, my Muslim sisters and I see this
    as the gravest discrimination committed in America.
