ORLANDO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT to open special ‘Islamic Prayer Room’ for Muslim travelers only


Not surprisingly, they named it a “Reflection Room,” so Americans won’t suspect what it really is.

Because Arab-Muslim owned Emirates Airlines will start flying in and out of Orlando International Airport within a few weeks, airport officials have been pressured, bribed, or forced into catering to Muslim religious needs.

Note: There are no special Christian-only prayer rooms at the airport.

Orlando Sentinel Many Emirates travelers will be Muslim, prompting the airport to spend almost $250,000 to build a reflection prayer room where people of the Islamic faith can pray. It should be open for the inaugural flight Sept. 1.
“Orlando is truly becoming a global community, and we want to be able to accommodate and provide high-quality amenities for all our Muslim passengers,” airport Director Phil Brown said in a written statement to the Orlando Sentinel.

Right now, Muslims at Orlando International must pray in public or perform religious rites in restrooms. Some also go to the small, nondenominational chapel tucked away on Airside B, just past the security checkpoint.

There are a couple of prayer rugs available there. (But obviously, that’s not good enough for them)

Shayan Modarres, an Orlando civil-rights attorney and Muslim, said the reflection room will be a welcome addition for the followers of Islam.
