A water park in France is holding a “burkini day” during which men and women not wearing Muslim swimming attire will be banned from using the facilities.
Speed Water Park near Marseille, a city with a Muslim population of around 25 per cent, is advertising a private women only day to take place on Saturday September 10th.
Visitors to the water the park on this day will be required to wear one piece swimsuits known as “burkinis” or “bath jilbabs” (pictured above) which cover the entire body, including the head.
Responding to pressure from incensed residents, local council officials are attempting to nix the plan, with one possibility being an “administrative closure for security reasons”.
Council member Romain Amaro said it was impossible that the event should be allowed to take place “in the current context”.
Valérie Boyer, an elected official for the region, also expressed her outrage at the event.
The controversy is yet another example of how France is becoming Islamicized even as the country is constantly hit by Islamic terror attacks.
Swimming pools have been a flashpoint for tensions exacerbated by the massive influx of Muslim migrants crossing into Europe over the past year.
There have been numerous reports of rapes and sexual assaults, including an Iraqi “refugee” who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Austria and didn’t even think much of it, labeling his predicament a “sexual emergency”.
Last month, Breitbart reported on a group of young Muslim men who harassed women at a swimming pool in Geldern, Germany, yelling “Allahu Akbar” while threatening to “exterminate” the women for being “sluts”.
Just today it was also revealed that a taxpayer-funded swimming pool in the town of Luton, UK, which has a high Muslim population, would be hosting a men-only gender segregated event during which women would be banned from using the larger pool.
Posters advertising the event, which is called ‘Alhamdulliahswimming’, a Muslim phrase which thanks God for his blessings, cautioned that “navel to knee must be covered”.
