Sharia Swim: Muslim Girls Only Swim Started by St. Paul YMCA And Police Dept

sharia-swimIt’s sharia swim time in St. Paul, Minnesota. In order to accompany the special needs of Islamists in the area, the downtown YMCA in St. Paul has started a special one hour “Muslim girls only” swim practice. And in the name of political correctness, the girls are going to learn water safety not in the usual way, but in sharia appropriate manner. They will swim fully clothed, which is a major safety hazard, and have all other “cultural” considerations met. No other group except Islamists would have all of their cultural specifications met for a swim practice. Everyone else would be forced to comply with the basic rules of a public pool. This is Islam at work in America today.

Swimming fully clothed is dangerous. For anyone who has ever swam before or is even remotely familiar with water safety, you can’t do it. First of all, clothes can feel exceptionally heavy in water, and could cause an inexperienced swimmer to drown. Secondly, it is unsanitary. Dirty clothing effects water quality of public pools, leading to further exposure to outside contamination. But yet in spite of all these obvious rules, that everyone is expected to follow, the downtown YMCA in St. Paul is having a sharia-compliant swim hour for Muslim girls only.

  Rayan 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.

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..

Interesting that the paper would specifically identify the girls as Somali-Americans. They never say “Islamic.” It’s all in the wording and phrasing. If they are going to cater to sharia specific needs, like being fully clothed while swimming, what about other ethnic considerations? Everyone else has to follow the rules. It would be racist and Islamophobic to insist that they adhere to the basic procedural guidelines of public pool swimming.

 One evening last week, the din of girls’ laughter and splashes filled the windowless, humid pool room of the St. Paul downtown YMCA.

The group of about 25 girls, who were quiet and reserved earlier in the evening, seemed to come alive while in the water. With each jump, kick and splash, their confidence appeared to grow.

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

During the hour long 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.

This is outrageous that this public pool would go to these lengths, knowing the basic dangerous that exist when swimming fully clothed. Anything can happen in a pool, even for experienced swimmers. But this boils down to being held hostage by Islam. When the minority have the power, all semblance of order falls apart. Sharia has come to America and conquered all.

Now that they allow Muslim girls swim fully clothed, is the International Swimming Federation (FINA) going to change the rules so that ALL female swimmers are to be required to wear full clothing to make the rules fair for Islamic swimmers? This is just a thought. The way everything is moving, this move wouldn’t be surprising.

There are no misprints here. They lock the men’s locker room, they clear out every other swimmer in the pool and bring in only female life guards. This is sharia swim hour for Muslim girls only. Forget safety and hygiene, and forget all the other people who are forced to abide by the rules of a public pool. YMCA’s are funded by government grants and aids, as well as membership fees. And this particular St. Paul project is getting grant money, which should upset a lot of people. If they’re paying any attention at all.

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.

It’s one thing to learn water safety, but everyone has to follow the same rules. But Islam demands sharia compliance, so they got what they wanted. Knowing the climate today, they probably didn’t have to pressure anyone to get what they wanted.

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.

Other metro YMCAs have water safety programs, but they don’t specifically cater to the needs of Somali girls. However, Britts recalled that a YMCA in north Minneapolis did have a Somali girls swim group about a decade ago.

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.

This is politically correct insanity. Changing all the rules to fit Islamic standards is absurd. And not only that, but funding is coming from metrowide water safety grants. This is the antithesis of water safety. This is sharia submission one-hundred percent. Hard working Americans are paying for sharia-complaint swim lessons for Muslim girls. Thus, there is further proof that tax dollars are being used to fund special pet Islamic projects like this, at the expense of ordinary Americans. This is the United States of Islam.

    I feel the USA is on a slid down, best you guys and girls get it sorted before its too late, I live in South Africa and we don’t have this nonsense here that effects non muslim peoples lives.

    Its not right and if ever it were to happen I would fight against this pathetic low life form of Islamic indoctrination into other countries.

    I’m 100% anti Muslim/Islam purely on the grounds that its a religion that openly and publicly discriminates against other cultures and religions, yes religion and culture are two very, very different subjects of life.

    If it discrinimates then why is it allowed in Europe, The America’s, Australia, Southern Africa etc as far as I’m aware all these countries and more have laws that prohibits discrimination so whats the true hidden agenda here people

    Control and enslavement, you been warned

  2. Nickie Perera says:

    What about white girls only swim class? Black girls only swim class? Asian Girls only swim class? I am a racist asian indian catholic girl. I want a swim class to fit both my racist and reiligous affiliation. The YMCA must now accomadate me as well

  3. Teresa says:

    Eww. I’d hate to see the resulting ring around the pool after they’re finished. Not know for their hygiene.

  4. Jeff Collier says:

    NOW WAIT just a darn minute—-MO-HAM(aka the PigPedo) and their QUEERANN AND all of their MULEES pick girls younger than these to “PLAY HOUSE “–ya I’m trying to be nice—WITH–and YOU can bet your pile of camel crap in our white house that THESE YOUNG GIRLS didn’t HAVE A DARN THING ON—so WHY is the HYPOCRITTERS demanding that these YOUNG GIRLS wear MORE than they would when MOLESTED by their HUBBIES,FATHERS,BROTHERS UNCLES etc—–HUMMM–MAYBE to HIDE what they MIGHT HAVE developing ???
    WONDER if the MOHAM ARABTRASH OBAMA requires his LITTLE PLAY THINGS to wear more than a BIKINI—oops better be careful he might have already TAUGHT them the ISLAMIC WAY–

  5. curtisjac says:

    Every year millions of people wish to come to America for a better life and to get away from where they came from. But it seems they no more than get here than they start wanting to change thing to what they just left. A simple answer if you don’t like it here Leave, go back to where you came from. This is America not a Muslim Country, if you want to live in a Muslim Country go back. America Love it or Leave it.

  6. Citizen Patriot says:

    Mary, hate is not a by-product of fear and ignorance. Hate stems from constant negative personal experience. If you don’t believe this, look at what drives the current divisiveness between the black and other racial communities. Or the Ku Klux Klan and the New Black Panther Party. Or the Democrats and Republicans. Or Islam (the religion of peace) and the rest of the world. And by the way, there is no Islamic swim ware short of mummy wrapping cloth. And a closing remark, if you don’t mind living with Sharia law, why not move to an established Muslim country and leave American culture and customs to those of us who appreciate them?

  7. Linda says:

    Hey Mark,
    I swim regularly at a YMCA in NY and am absolutely appalled at the idea of having anyone swimming naked. True no one is there to ogle but that would be downright frightening to the youth especially while senior aqua fitness class is in session. Please don’t shed the banana hammock.

  8. Phil says:

    Total BS. UnAmerican. Love it or leave it.

  9. James Baskin III says:

    Mary are you in agreement that Sharia law is to be heeded and enforced in a christian organization where as you or I would not be allowed in a Mosque as a christian?

  10. Mac says:


    Don’t tell ’em it’s dangerous!!!…..

    …. let ’em sink.

  11. Mary says:

    There is absolutely no need to be so hateful. Hate stems from fear and fear stems from ignorance. The Muslim girls participating in the one hour swim class can wear Islamic swimwear that was even worn by Muslim participants in the 2008 Beijing Olympics without causing a safety or sanitary threat to the Y. This article just wants to promote a culture of hate. It’s a sad fact that prejudice is a long-lasting American value that’s been around since our country was founded. Isn’t it time that we extend kindness to all humans?

  12. huggies says:

    well we all can put pork everywhere sense they hate it so much and they will leave with out looking back

  13. Diane Porter says:

    maybe if people boycott the y they might have second thoughts muslims are not very clean i know i would never go in that water again

  14. rbodell says:

    In their country a christian can be killed for being a christian or not converting to islam. Lets play by their rules here and see how fast they go back home.

  15. Archangel55 says:

    Build a pool in your Mosque. Maybe I’m out of touch, but doesn’t YMCA stand for Young Men’s Christian Association? Why would this cult want to swim there?

  16. Karen says:

    If people don’t like the way things are done here, why don’t they stay in their native lands? I would not expect to go to a foreign land and have all my customs and wishes accommodated.

  17. Thom says:

    Profiling, should be considered as American as is Apple Pie. Baseball, Football, and the NRA.

  18. jeffery says:

    If government money is spent on a religeous practice the separation of church and state becomes blurred. Try getting a police dept to sponsor a nativity scene and watch the crap hit the fan.

  19. Brinkman says:

    This is just insane why should we in American bow to a bunch slimy muslims.
    Send ever last one of thease scum back where ever they came from.
    They kill christains and were sposed to be friend thease killers I think not.
    They all should be in our cross hairs every stinken muslim in this country should be lined up ans shot.In revenge for all christians that have killed.

  20. Denver says:

    “Sharia Swim: Muslim Girls Only Swim Started by St. Paul YMCA And Police Dept”

    As long as every adult remembers, this is exactly the same as having Caucasian only swim events.

  21. Mark says:

    The comments about sanitary conditions being compromised by clothing as well as the safety concerns are both very valid. I swim laps 4x a week at our YMCA, about 1.5 miles/hour each time. There are many other swimmers there also including women. The last thing anyone there does is to stare at the women. Even with the abbreviated swimsuits these days leaving their butts hanging out. You can’t really see anything under the water either. What a joke this is. Many of us have expressed a desire to swim naked, the women have also. Unfortunately, the locals are horrified at this prospect and it will never happen. That said, if this bunch can swim fully clothed why can’t we all swim naked??????
    This practice of letting sharia hold this country hostage has to stop. This policy is absurd and should not be followed.
