Gitmo prisoners get new gym after refusing equipment made by 'U.S. infidels'
foxnews.com ^ | 6/30/13 | New York Post

Posted on 06/30/2013 10:48:32 AM PDT by ColdOne

Americans are supposed to have sympathy for the accused terrorist detainees now on hunger strike to protest supposedly cruel conditions at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“I don’t want these individuals to die,” President Obama recently lamented, adding he intends to close Gitmo and transfer the detainees to U.S. prisons.

But just a few years ago, detainees got so plump from overeating hummus and other dishes from the camp’s Islamically correct menu that commanders specially ordered treadmills to help them lose weight.

Then they ordered them again — because they weren’t made by Muslims.

Uh, gym? Well at least we get to pay for it. Just think of the lawsuits one of them will file if they get hurt. Sorry, “No gym for you!”.

This is madness; it is beyond the behavior a defeated Western culture. It is either the psychotic actions of insane self injury or the actions of a Muslim Judas goat humiliating a blind US population so dumbed down they cannot even recognize their own subjugation.

We demand our Constitutional rights be honored. We get stiffed.

Terrorists in prison come up with cockamamie demands, and they are fulfilled at once.

So, 0bama wants treadmills made by terrorists instead of by dues paying union members.

Had I been the station commander, I’d have ordered the damned Muslim-made treadmills, and then I’d have ordered that Mohammed’s face be painted on every frigging piece of foot-rubber the treadmill had.

If they are on hunger strikes, they won’t need any treadmills to keep them from becoming obese. Cancel the whole thing.

“Waist” of money at Guantanamo Bay as detainees get prison’s ‘infidel’ gym replaced

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/fitmo_ZMCwnFHLCgWlWCIcgmgZqN

“The official called Gitmo detainees “some of the most pampered prisoners on the planet.”

He said they get as many as four choices of halal meals and have access to a new $750,000 soccer field. Islamic prayer beads and rugs are now “standard issue.” They get their choice of more than 10,000 Islamic books and videos stocked by a Muslim librarian, who also records soccer and Arabic TV for them. They even have their own clerics to preach to them in Arabic.

Everyone gets a Koran, paperback or hardback, along with little hammocks to keep their holy book from touching the ground when not in use.”

If they try to close GITMO now, the detainees will riot to keep it open.

An 11 million dollar hospital complex? How many citizens here in the U.S. could benefit from such a facility? And the government builds it for filthy muslim terrorists! Do Americans held by these neanderthals get ANY medical treatment, aside from the occasional head removal? We have gone effing crazy.

The day of reckoning is coming.

gitmo and guantanamo shoudl be run by joe airaipiao (sp?) who made his inmates sit on a stationary energy producing bicyle to produce hteir own power in oder to watch television- no lie- He made his inmates work for basics like soap, lauindry privileges etc-

American prisoners of war end up in hanoi hilton while foreign prisoners of war caught by Americans are treated as royalty- Swell-

These barbarians again? Seems to me, the Gitmo closing issue and the hunger strike by the barbarians are problems that have a mutual self fulfilling and successful end. Stop food deliveries and send some shovels.

Maybe a dumptruck load of rocks from Mecca will make them happy, it’s the closest thing to Islamic gym equipment as they’re ever going to get.

A bullet Made in the USA right between the eyes of each of the real infidels would be a lot less expensive. In fact, those arms makers that are being hounded out of the nanny states would probably still be patriotic enough to donate the ammo.

Muslims waiting for modern equipment made by Muslims can be waiting a long time. It’s not like the Islamic world has been on the creative edge of science or industry. Islam isn’t that kind of culture.

I read somewhere that the Arab League had a “history” on their website that described all the “firsts” that the Arab world brought to civilization...like first organized farming, math, astronomy, construction techniques, and so on...unfortunately, that history ended at around 400AD (it has since been updated).

Lot of that here in Europe as well.

No bicycles, though, dammit. I say that because bikes here, new, run around $1,000. I can get me a Chinese bike for a fraction of that price. But NOOOOO........anti-dumping laws.

Meh.....maybe I’ll just take a trip to Berlin later this fall and get one for free. Seriously; you can get bikes - good ones - for free. People just give them away.

Even before the advent of Islam, Arab inventions are highly suspect. After Islam, everything went downhill. Arabs aside, other races and ethnicities who were making great strides also sunk with the anchor of Islam. Islam is more stifling to the progress of civilizations than Socialism.

Maybe they could have Gitmo tours instead.
And all the American children can wear T-shirts
with the American flag on it, and a tour guide can
point at them and explain how evil they are.
And no matter what crappy equipment they have -
They still have NO FREEDOM....
