London’s Olympic Park toilets to turn away from Mecca out of respect for Islamic law

Muslims just can’t miss an opportunity to force their bullshit on the rest of us in any way they can it seems. I bet in Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan the toilets are facing random directions.

Toilet facilities are being built at London’s Olympic Park so Muslims will not have to face Mecca while sitting on the loo.

The Olympic Delivery Authority has said it wants to produce an ideal venue for people of all cultures, faiths, ages and abilities for the 2012 Games and beyond.

The Islamic religion prohibits Muslims from facing the Kiblah – the direction of prayer – when they visit the lavatory.

An ODA spokeswoman confirmed that a ‘percentage of general toilets would not face Mecca’ out of sensitivity.

She could not say how many toilets would turn away from the East.

Also as part of the design, special washing facilities will be linked to Islamic prayer rooms.

It is not the first time toilets have changed direction to accommodate Muslims.

Last year, thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money was used to ensure toilets at Brixton prison in London did not offend Islamic law.

Muslim prisoners complained of having to sit sideways on toilets so as to not break code.

Faith leaders in the government pressured officials to approve turning the toilets 90 degrees.

But ODA chairman John Armitt said it was about making the London Olympic venue the ‘most accessible and inclusive public park’ for future generations.

Other design measures earmarked for the park include:

  • Gentle slopes into the venue with wider pathways with smooth surfaces and seating and resting places at regular intervals for wheelchair users;
  • Accessible toilet facilities including special areas where older disabled people can be helped to change by their carers; and
  • Baby changing areas and buggy stores at toilet facilities.

  1. If I ever build my own house I will most assuredly make sure I’ll be peeing & pooing in the exact direction of Mecca.

  2. If you go abroad to certain countries, Malaysia for example, every hotel room contains a mark that points towards Mecca, so that praying guests will know where to face. When I was in Malaysia and Indonesia about seven years ago, I took great pleasure in switching these markers to face the opposite direction. Some couldn’t be changed as they were painted on the ceiling, but the ones that were on furniture were easy to sabotage. I gained a little satisfaction knowing that after I had left, some hapless Korang-Utan would be prostrating himself with his sweaty ass pointing directly at the Black Stone instead of away from it.
    If I had my way, all the World’s toilets, sewage outlets and waste disposal systems would be piped towards a central collecting system then piped again towards Saudi Arabia and dumped directly onto Mecca. Allah deserves nothing less than the contents of my bowels and the contents of millions of other peoples’ excrement. Allah deserves nothing but shit and zero respect.
    Muslim nations are little more than landfill. Saudi Arabia, being hot, dry and almost useless would make a great World septic tank!

  3. Once again we have to kow tow to these fanatics and their wishes, so does this mean if a penshioner wants a new toilet the govt will replace it for them free of charge.
    I thought the UK belonged to the Brits now it seems that it belongs to everyone but, the govt will soon learn that bending over backwards to these screaming mustards will be the downfall of the UK as we knew it

  4. Watching the Olympics opening ceremony, I was shocked, nay blown out of my socks to hear not one but 3 Christian hymns as part of the ceremony.

    1. Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
    The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
    When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
    Help of the helpless, O abide with me..

    2. Guide me, O thou great redeemer,
    Pilgrim through this barren land;
    I am weak, but thou art mighty,
    Hold me with thy powerful hand;
    Bread of heaven, bread of heaven
    Feed me till I want no more;
    Feed me till I want no more.

    3. And did those feet in ancient time
    Walk upon England’s mountains green?
    And was the Holy Lamb of God
    On England’s pleasant pastures seen?
    And did the countenance divine
    Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
    And was Jerusalem builded here
    Among these dark satanic mills?

    Bring me my bow of burning gold!
    Bring me my arrows of desire!
    Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
    Bring me my chariot of fire!
    I will not cease from mental fight,
    Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
    Till we have built Jerusalem
    In England’s green and pleasant land
    —————————————-

    I have never ever heard of such a thing. How did this happen? I suppose the London committee proposed it. How did it get passed by the Olympic committee though?

    The strange thing is that all three hymns evoke a person in distress (Abide with me), then praying for God’s help and guidance (Guide me oh thou great Redeemer..). Finally, to re-build Jerusalem as a duty to God and country (I will not cease from mental fight, Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand..)

    What is going on?

  5. DP111:
    I suspect that the song ‘Jerusalem’ got past the PC censors because they reckon that Jerusalem belongs to the Muslims. The later verses are irrelevant as Leftards never listen to anything anyway and probably close their ears when people start singing hymns. If they did happen to catch any of it, the line ‘Till we have built Jerusalem
    In England’s green and pleasant land’ probably means that the Jews can’t have it and the city is reserved for the British ‘Ummah’, or something like that.
