the 5 muslim prayer rooms

Muslims pray five times a day according to the requirements of their religion. Students might be in class during a specified time, which results in Muslim prayer in schools. Schools have tried to accommodate their beliefs through different arrangements, such as Muslim prayer rooms.

Here are five public schools or districts attempted to satisfy Muslim prayer requirements without disturbing people of other faiths or interfering with policies regarding religion:

1. Desert View High School in Tucson, Arizona, established a prayer room near its library for several Muslim students in 2014. A scheduled prayer time falls early in the afternoon when those students were still in school.

School administrators allowed the students to pray in the room for about 10 minutes during their lunch period. The Desert View principal notified the Sunnyside Unified School District of the prayer room in an email to Dr. Eugenia Favela, the acting superintendent.

Favela told TV station KVOA she didn't think a public notice on the separate room was necessary. She told the station she had not received direct complaints, but heard about complaints second-hand.

2. Muslims were allowed "prayer accommodations" in 2013 in the public schools of Dearborn, Michigan. The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations had negotiated an arrangement with school officials in Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit.

The Dearborn school board implemented a policy that allowed a place for student prayers in all public schools and also permission to leave early on Friday for scheduled prayers, according to The Christian Post. 

3. Christian teachers became upset when Muslim students began praying during class at Parkdale High School in Riverdale, Maryland. It was at time of required prayer.

Principal Cheryl J. Logan told the students that public schools were not allowed to participate in religion practices during class. She came up with the idea of excusing Muslim students for eight minutes each day to pray together on campus, according to The Washington Post.

At Carver Elementary School in San Diego, administrators allowed Muslims to go on a short break for prayer during one of the scheduled times in 2007. Parents protested the scheduled recess. Although all children were allowed to take breaks at that time, critics charged it was arranged to meet Muslim demands.

So to satisfy all sides, the school rescheduled its lunch period in order to meet the requirements for Muslim prayer and to allow students of any faith to prayer if they choose, according to The Christian Science Monitor. 

5. The city of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada allows prayer rooms for Muslims in public schools, such as Sir Robert Borden High School. The high schools offer available classrooms to Muslim students during their time of prayer. Several high schools offer Friday prayer services for Muslims shortly after noon for their most important prayer, reports the Toronto Sun.

Islam is a good thing, not a bad thing.

Islam is coming for you, faggots.

Be afraid, be very afraid. We will take everything and make Europe just like Arab countries. 

Innovation and science are un-Islamic! It is haram! Chemistry, Math and Physics are sorcery and should not be allowed and those who practice it should be put to death according to Shariah . 

We will make the Islamic welfare state the only system in the world. We already control your countries because we have deceived your majority liberal population with our tactic of Taqiyya. Now all that's left is to start undoing everything Europeans innovated over the years.

We will eliminate those who can see what is truly going on, starting with the most enlightened... the ones who follow the religions of Atheism and Stormfrontism. They are a threat to our plans due to superior intellect, but our cyber warriors are on it, tracing each and every IP address of this powerful enemy of Islam.

The only way to save yourself is to give in and make a blood sacrifice in the name of Allah. You may alternatively rape a prepubescent girl or goat (goat not required to be prepubescent).

The choice is yours, oh filthy white pigs...
Takbir! Allahu' akbar!

Maybe 1 or 2 might get in or perhaps 50. Some may even have their beliefs radicalized here. The point is you, me, the government just does not know. To take in the numbers they are with the economy in the mess it is in and no plan is ridiculous. These people were in camps, safe from the violence of Syria, yet the government has to rush it through to meet an artificial deadline promised in an election platform. The government started out asking for people to take refugees in, then wanted to put them on bases, now they are asking for hotel rooms. Sound planned to you? They are flying by the seat of their pants and we will be paying a LONG time for this SNAFU,

And here I am, a working Canadian 40 hours a week minimum wage job (can`t find a better full time one since I`m also a full time student) , I go to university, nobody is helping me do anything. It would be nice to get some help from the government but all they are doing is charging me 6k plus on student loan interest and taking all my income tax returns - I guess that money is going to help pay for these hotels. I have to go to the food bank while these guys are getting paid to come here and get room service and free clothes and housing, probably also pay for their language training.. And they wonder why people are upset... There was even a time when I was living alone and couldn't afford my rent anymore even though I was working full time at that min wage job so got evicted after 1 month late- so I kept going to uni but I slept in Tim Hortons. Where the hell was all this hospitality for me back then? It's because I wasn't a good photo op for the politicians. Why the hell do I even pay taxes in this country? I can pretty much also confidently say these guys aren't staying at a Super 8, probably an expensive hotel downtown somewhere. Waste of money.

But that's the thing with the Trudeau government - it would much prefer looking after the Syrians, before looking after any of its own people.

The math in this article is incorrect. There is no way this adds up to $80 million. 600 rooms X 78 days between now and March. If the bill was 80 million each refugee would be in a room that costs more than $1700 per night. Not possible. If the rooms were as high as $250 per night then you are only just over 11 million.

Thanks for posting the truth Andrea. Seems like the National Post has turned into a spew nonsense political party instead of the respected newsdpaer it used to be. Ditto for the Globe & Mail, sigh. What's sadder still is how many Canadians have been so EAGER to hop on to this hate regugees - immigrant machine because OMG they are muslims - that they totally IGNORE have been living in freaking camps where they DO NOT have even close to enough food - have had to FLEE for their lives because of ISIS - etc.... Their inuyimane and hate filled fear inciting posts are a disgrace to the entire country and everything we stand for and everything our parents foought for in WWII. And gave their lives for.

I can see this whole thing blowing up in the face of the Liberal Government. If we don't see a rebellion or a riot in this country by Canadians it will amaze me , Canadians will not stand by and see their own living on the streets and dying while refugees are being brought in here and getting the cream of the crops. There was just no long term planning put into this move. I hate to see the final outcome of all this. I am afraid it will not be nice and there are going to be some nasty things being carried out by those who have lived here all their lives and have worked hard and are having it all taken from them in order to keep others who have given nothing.

The interview I saw was about a girl my age, who just finished her bachelors prior to coming to Canada. She was in all designer clothing, spoke perfect english, and had expensive make up on as she got off the plane. She was thrilled to hear that Canada will be paying for her Masters degree, which she was enrolled for this year. fully paid cell phones, 60 dollars a day for food etc. I as a born canadian am rejected for anything I apply for to help assist with the ridiculous cost of living, student loans etc as the basic expenses are much more than what I make. I also have a university degree,years of experience, and a full time job. They say 65% of people my age arent working full time. they are forced into contract work and to work mulitple part time again, how are we supposed to take care of some other countrys people, when we cant even take care of our own?????
Sam Unruh · 
If you are in need you should take what is offered, without expectation or demand. If you expect others to cater to your needs and personal preferences you are clearly no longer in need. I don't have an issue with our country accepting refugees and carefully resettling them - many Canadians were displaced peoples and were welcomed to our country. However, Canada did not change its ways or try to cater to their needs. That is where we are seeing a huge difference. If people wish to be welcomed to Canada they must come with no expectations - that is apparently not the case with many of these current refugees. Also, if the government provides an "estimate" we all know how that turns out.

Good grief, 80 Million could have built a few apartment complexes for many of the Syrian refugees to live in, had Justin Trudeau thought things out before rushing ahead to promote globally his "Mr Compassionate" image who will teach the rest of the world leaders how it is done.

I hope you're going to enjoy paying for it via cuts to many systems like healthcare, education, etc. You know, the things that current Canadians need to help them prosper.

But I'm sure they'll find a way to blame their future problems on the ever elusive "evil white man" that supposedly just goes around ruining everything for everyone that's not a white man for the heck of it.

I cannot believe that all this money is being spent on the refugees. Why did the government not do due diligence and resource the country and find jobs for these people, I am sure they would prefer to be working and provide for themselves.
The prime minister has invited all these people in to the country with no idea how he is going to pay for it, He wants to look good on the International front when he needs to look after the people that need help in his own country.

this money should come directly out of stephen harpers bank account and pensions as well as trudeaus bank account and wages for conspiring with benjamin netanyahu and partaking in the bombing of iraq and syria.

I have a plan for the refugees, All males between the ages of 18 to 50 will immediately be inducted into the military of their new country and sent to basic training, after basic training, they will be loaded into aircrafts and flown back to their home country, and upon arrival given weapons and ammo and told to reclaim their country. Once they have accomplished that, we will send their wives and children back to them at no cost. They will be paid the same as our soldiers, while fighting for their country and their dependants will receive the same benefits as our soldiers dependants. If they are not willing to do this then they and their families can find another country to take them, We should not have to send our military to fight for their country if they are not willing to fight for their own
