What About Frenchmen?

The Herald Sun (Australia) reports:
A ROW has erupted over Muslim-only washrooms at La Trobe University that can be accessed only with a secret push-button code.

Muslim students have exclusive access to male and female washrooms on campus, sparking claims of bias and discrimination.

The university and Islamic leaders have defended the washrooms as vital to Muslim students' prayer rituals.


Victorian Muslim community leader Yasser Soliman said the washrooms were necessary.

He said the separate facilities were also due to concerns from non-Muslim students.

"Muslims need to wash their feet before prayer and in the past there have been complaints about them washing their feet in sinks, so this is a happy medium," he said.

Mr Soliman said most universities provided Muslim-only prayer and washrooms for students.

A La Trobe University spokesman said the washrooms were established with the advice of senior Muslim religious leaders.


La Trobe University Christian Union vice-president Richard Thamm backed the washrooms.

"It's part of their religion, they need to wash in a special way before they pray," he said.
And I need to paint designs on my ass with three colors of lipstick before I pray. Surely that's more alarming to the local yokels than mere foot-washing. And what about those peculiar Frenchmen, who seldom bathe, but use a bidet?

Muslims, like everyone else, just want to come to the West for the economic opportunities, for religious and cultural freedom, and to live peacefully and harmoniously with their new countrymen of whatever race, religion or ethnic origin.

So long as they don't have to use the same public restrooms.
