Muslim Boston Bomber’s Sister Arrested for Bomb Threat

By Daniel Greenfield
Accepting the Tsarnaevs as refugees was just the gift that keeps on giving.
The sister of accused Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested in New York City today, accused of making bomb threats against her boyfriend’s ex, according to police.
Ailina Tsarnaeva, 24, of North Bergen, N.J., turned herself in to officers in Manhattan around 2:30 p.m. and was charged with aggravated harassment, according to police.
“She made phone threats against another female saying, ‘I know people who can go over there and put a bomb on you,’” said New York City police Lt. Paul Ng.
Considering that one of the Tsarnaevs is dead and another is in Federal custody, it would be quite interesting to find out just whom she was talking about.
Tsarnaeva has been required to check in with Massachusetts probation officers since last October after prosecutors say she didn’t cooperate with a counterfeiting investigation. Her lawyer in that case hasn’t returned a message seeking comment. A working home phone number for her can’t be found.
The White Widow, Katherine Russell, lives with her and has a new baby. Alina has her own romance going on which apparently led to this bomb threat.
Anyone want to guess how many welfare checks are going to the two sisters and the widow?

Muslim Abuse of 1400 British Girls: “No One Wanted to Rock the Multicultural Community Boat”

By Daniel Greenfield

Maintaining a happy multicultural community boat is easy. You just never check underneath the waterline and ignore any screams you here.
The rest takes care of itself.
Denis MacShane, the former Labour MP for Rotherham, told the BBC: “I think there was a culture of not wanting to rock the multicultural community boat if I may put it like that.”
Admitting he had been guilty of doing too little, he said he had been aware of the problem of cousin marriage and “the oppression of women within bits of the Muslim community in Britain” but: “Perhaps yes, as a true Guardian reader, and liberal leftie, I suppose I didn’t want to raise that too hard.”
And of course no one wanted to expose the abuse of 1,400 British girls because it might provide ammo to the EDL.
Several councillors interviewed believed that by opening up these issues they could be ‘giving oxygen’ to racist perspectives that might in turn attract extremist political groups and threaten community cohesion. To some extent this concern was valid, with the apparent targeting of the town by groups such as the English Defence League.
It’s impossible not to share that incredulous fury. Powerless white working-class girls were caught between a hateful, imported culture of vicious misogyny on the one hand, and on the other a culture of chauvinism among the police, who regarded them as worthless slags. Officials trained up in diversity and political correctness failed to acknowledge what was effectively white slavery on their doorstep.
Much too embarrassing to concede that it wasn’t white people who were committing racist hate crimes in this instance.
Not exactly a new phenomenon. Is it? White working class populations caught between the creed of diversity and the rock of circumstances.
Equally horrifying is the suggestion that certain Pakistani councillors asked social workers to reveal the addresses of the shelters where some of the abused girls were hiding.
Front-line youth workers who submitted reports in 2002, 2003 and 2006 expressing their alarm at the scale of the child sex-offending say the town hall told them to keep quiet about the ethnicity of the perpetrators in the interests of “community cohesion”.
That is horrifying, though I saw no mention of it in the report, if so it absolutely needs to be followed up as they were clearly part of the sex abuse rings, which the report documents became economic in nature, dragging in a Muslim taxi ring, among others.

The Rotherham Rapes’ Muslim Connection: Political correctness prevented authorities from recognizing the community’s sexual-abuse problem.

By Ian Tuttle

About eight miles from Sheffield in central England, the Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham is home to just over 258,000 residents — for comparison, about as many as reside in its transatlantic “twin town,” Buffalo, N.Y.
It’s also home to a local government, child-social-services agency, and police department that effectively countenanced at least 1,400 instances of “child sexual exploitation” (CSE) between 1997 and 2013 — and that is a “conservative” estimate, according to the “Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham,” just released by Rotherham’s Metropolitan Borough Council. How could police and local leaders ignore the victimization of so many children? In part, thank political correctness.
Authored by Professor Alexis Jay, an expert and government adviser on social work, the inquiry was based on 988 children known to have been victims of sexual exploitation, defined by the United Kingdom as involving young people under the age of 18 in “exploitative situations, contexts and relationships where young people (or a third person or persons) receive ‘something’ (e.g. food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, affection, gifts, money) as a result of performing, and/or others performing on them, sexual activities.”

Jay and her fellow researchers read 66 case files, some of which remain under investigation. What they discovered were not just instances of all-too-common sexual abuse, but sex trafficking networks, gang rape, and terror:
It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated. There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone. Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators.
Reports of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham were known to social workers by the early 1990s, but many of those reports were incorrectly identified as “child prostitution.” Not until 1997, when the Council’s Youth Services launched the Risky Business youth project, did child sexual exploitation become a separate concern. Risky Business aimed to identify persons ages 11 to 25 who might be at risk, often recommending them to children’s social-care agencies, but those agencies were regularly derelict in their duties.
In 2000 a twelve-year-old girl was plied with drugs and raped by five men. The Criminal Investigation Department representative handling her case argued that every incident had been “100% consensual.” Two men who admitted to intercourse with the girl received “police cautions.”
In 2001 a serial predator threatened his victim, a 15-year-old girl, with forced prostitution — then threatened her family, vandalized her home, and used his other victims to assault the girl. She was hospitalized, and members of her family went into hiding. The girl and her mother refused to cooperate with police, convinced that law enforcement was helpless to protect them.
A twelve-year-old girl found in 2008 drunk in the backseat of a vehicle with a suspected predator — who had obscene pictures of the girl on his cell phone — was assessed by local authorities as being at no risk of child sexual exploitation, and her case was closed. “Less than a month later,” the inquiry reports, “she was found in a derelict house with another child, and a number of adult males. She was arrested for being drunk and disorderly (her conviction was later set aside) and none of the males were arrested.”
The consequences of government mismanagement perpetuated the cycle of violence: “One of the children who failed to meet the threshold for social care went on to become a serious sex offender, convicted of the abduction and rape of young girls.”
Many of the victims were not unknown to the system: “In just over a third of cases, children affected by sexual exploitation were previously known to services because of child protection and child neglect. There was a history of domestic violence in 46% of cases. Truancy and school refusal were recorded in 63% of cases and 63% of children had been reported missing more than once.”
So why did Rotherham fail to protect its children? Consider the background of the perpetrators.
“By far the majority of perpetrators were described as ‘Asian’ by victims,” the inquiry reports — by which they mean members of Great Britain’s “Pakistani-heritage community,” with which Rotherham officials reportedly never engaged “to discuss how best they could jointly address the issue” of child sexual exploitation.
In her 2006 report on child sex exploitation in Rotherham, Dr. Angie Heal, a strategic drugs analyst, wrote, “It is believed by a number of workers that one of the difficulties that prevent this issue [CSE] being dealt with effectively is the ethnicity of the main perpetrators.” She also noted, in Jay’s words, that “the Police dared not act against Asian youths for fear of allegations of racism. This perception was echoed at the present time by some young people we met during the Inquiry.”
The current inquiry reports, in agreement with Heal:
Several people interviewed expressed the general view that ethnic considerations had influenced the policy response of the Council and the Police. . . . One example was given by the Risky Business project Manager (1997- 2012) who reported that she was told not to refer to the ethnic origins of perpetrators when carrying out training. Other staff in children’s social care said that when writing reports on CSE cases, they were advised by their managers to be cautious about referring to the ethnicity of the perpetrators.
Of course, the issue is not only race, but religion. According to 2011 census figures, 91 percent of Pakistanis in England and Wales are Muslim. According to Dr. Heal’s 2006 report, child-sexual-exploitation suspects also commonly hail from Iraq and Kosovo — both nations where Muslims constitute upward of 90 percent of the population.

Additionally, although the majority of victims have been “white British” children, child sex exploitation is also dishearteningly common within the Pakistani-heritage community. In September 2013 the U.K. Muslim Women’s Network released a report on child sex exploitation, primarily among Muslim victims. The Inquiry quotes it at length:
“Offending behaviour mostly involved men operating in groups. . . . The victim was being passed around and prostituted amongst many other men. Our research also showed that complex grooming ‘hierarchies’ were at play. The physical abuse included oral, anal and vaginal rape; role play; insertion of objects into the vagina; severe beatings; burning with cigarettes; tying down; enacting rape that included ripping clothes off and sexual activity over the webcam.” This description mirrors the abuse committed by Pakistani-heritage perpetrators on white girls in Rotherham.

Recent trials would seem to corroborate the Inquiry’s findings — and suggest that the problem is not contained to Rotherham. In November 2010 — the same month that five Rotherham men were jailed for sexual offenses against girls ages 12 to 16 — nine men from Derby were convicted for their part in “systematically abus[ing] and rap[ing]” girls as young as 12. Twenty-seven girls claimed to be victims of the gang. In May 2012, nine Rochdale men were sentenced for similar crimes against girls as young as 13. In June 2013, seven men who together groomed, raped, and trafficked girls as young as 11, were convicted and sentenced in Oxford. The defendants in each case were almost exclusively Muslim.
Professor Jay and her researchers performed interviews with a small number of Rotherham-area victims. “One young person told us,” they wrote, “that ‘gang rape’ was a usual part of growing up in the area of Rotherham in which she lived.”
That is life under the tyranny of senseless taboos: The most vulnerable end up the victims.

UK: Muslim Quango Rejects Coalition Over Money Trouble

By Oliver Lane 

An ‘independent’ Quango founded by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has cut ties to the government after refusing to accept that maintaining links to questionable organisations meant it could not continue to receive public money. According to The Times, a spokesman for the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board (MINAB) said they had enjoyed a “very, very limited level of engagement” with the Coalition. Founded in the shadow of the 7/7 terror attacks in London during Gordon Brown’s premiership, MINAB is an “umbrella body that sets out guidelines for more than 500 mosques, imams, and religious training centres”. Used as a vessel to direct taxpayer money to ‘improve standards’ in mosques, it has been controversial from the outset amongst some Muslim groups.
An academic review of Medina in Birmingham, Najaf in Brent: Inside British Islam recently called MINAB reflective of the Government’s “colonialist approach of divide and rule”. One Muslim community leader called it a “New Labour cook up” of “consultants, glossy reports and events”.
Before the coalition ended its funding, MINAB received at least £174,000 from 2008 to 2011, channeled to the organisation through it’s controlling asset the Muslim Council of Britain. The Labour government had been keen to put money into these organisations, including £2,500 for an exclusive table at the MCB’s Council leadership dinner. The cut of funding following the Coalition government’s ‘Bonfire of the Quangos’ in 2011 led to the situation today described by a MINAB spokesman as ‘difficult’.
The continued membership of the controversial East London Mosque and others in MINAB despite objections of the Government has contributed to this cooling in relations. Now Western governments are taking a more hawkish approach to militant Islam in the wake of the James Foley killing, MINAB have decided to formally sever relations which appear to have existed only in name for some years anyway.

Women Volunteer for Sexual Jihad with Islamic State

Records show that Australian, British, and Malaysian women travel to Iraq and Syria to participate in jihad al-nikah, or sexual jihad, for the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists. They intend to become comfort women for the jihadists as the men continue to establish a Caliphate in Iraq and Syria. "These women are believed to have offered themselves in sexual comfort roles to ISIS fighters who are attempting to establish Islamic rule in the Middle East,” said one source in Malaysia, adding, "This concept may seem controversial but it has arisen as certain Muslim women here are showing sympathy for the ISIS struggle."
"Checks with our foreign counterparts and intelligence disseminated reveal that there may be up to 50 Malaysians in the Middle East," he said.
The official shared information with Britain and Australia. Numbers from those countries show hundreds of men fight with ISIS, but also women who left because of sexual jihad.
"This figure also includes British Muslim women who are not fighting on the front line, but are still involved by performing sexual jihad,” said the source. “Australian intelligence officials have revealed that more than 100 Australian Muslims are in Syria fighting alongside ISIS.”
In 2013, a Wahhabi edict asked Sunni women to offer themselves as comfort women “to boost the morale of fighters” in Syria who fight against President Bashar al-Assad. Many women from Tunisia traveled to Syria in the name of sexual jihad after the fatwas were issued. Wahhabi is a conservative school of Islam, but there are a few who view jihad al-nikah as a legitimate form of holy war. Some of the fatwas on the Internet called on women as young as 14-years-old to help those fighting the war.
ISIS, who identify with Wahhabi, executed its own sexual jihad edict in June after the terrorists took over Mosul, Iraq. Unfortunately, many of the women were forced into the sexual jihad against their will. The terrorists demanded residents bring all unmarried girls to perform their duty in jihad by providing sex to the militants.
Posters read, “We call upon the people of this county to bring their unmarried girls so they can fulfill their duty in sex jihad for their warrior brothers in the city and anyone who will not appear will feel the full force of the sharia [Islamic law] upon him.”
Four women committed suicide after ISIS terrorists raped them. Also, two Iraqi girls provided testimony after men raped them. The terrorists attacked their house, killed the men inside, and took turns raping the two young girls. They claimed it was legitimate in the name of sexual jihad.

Dutch Jihadist Had Leading Position in Foley’s Jail

The Belgian jihadist, Jejoen Bentinck, has stated that the jail where the decapitated American journalist James Foley was imprisoned had a Dutchman among its leading wardens.  The exact role of the Dutch jihadi, who is reputed to have trained as an engineer in the Netherlands, is not known.  Bentinck was jailed there for some time as well.

Back to the 'Garden of the Beasts' - Deja vu?

By Prof. Phyllis Chesler

On the evening of August 25, 2014, on the upper east side of New York City, a gang of anti-Semitic "thugs" attacked a peaceful but visibly Jewish man--he was wearing a skullcap, (a yarmulke or kippa). They also attacked his wife.

Two cars, "flying Palestinian flags and multiple motorcycles" pulled up to the couple at 8pm, while it was still daylight. They began yelling "anti-Jewish statements." Then, they threw a water bottle that hit his wife and, when her husband came to her defense, they "punched him  in the head."

The suspects fled, no arrests have been made, the 27 year old man refused medical attention at the scene.

This is my neighborhood, my home town.  This incident took place about a mile away from where I live and work. So far, I have found only one brief article about this in the New York Post and one in the New York Daily News.

Are there more such incidents that are not being covered?

There are so many synagogues on the upper east side of New York City and so many visibly Jewish men and women. New York City's largest mosque is also on the upper east side. What are Jews supposed to do? Hide our faith--even as more and more Muslims in this very neighborhood proudly proclaim theirs by wearing hijab, burqas, Islamic skullcaps, and Islamic dress?
Something is very wrong with this picture.

Jews do not attack Muslims or Christians--or anyone for that matter--for wearing religiously identifiable clothing or jewelry. Only Muslims do that; Muslims and pro-Muslim sympathizers.

Jews and Christians are not allowed to openly and visibly practice their religion in most Muslim countries; and yet Muslims in America and Europe expect to be able to practice their faith, often in very aggressive ways, in both America and Europe.

I remember Eric Larsen's excellent book: "In the Garden of the Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin." The time is 1933. Larsen describes how Nazi thugs begin beating up both Americans and Jews in the streets, quite openly. People see. They walk on by. The American media and more importantly, the American government did not want to publicize the beatings of Americans lest Germany use this as an excuse to default on loan repayments. The Jews? No one seemed to care.

Is this happening again, at an increasingly rapid rate, but not just in Berlin? This time, it is quite global. Such incidents have been happening for quite some time outside of Israel in Australia, New Zealand, France, England, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Canada--and the United States.

Thus, in August of this year, a Muslim mob in Uppsala, Sweden "set upon and severely beat a Jewish mother of four, for wearing a Jewish Star of David necklace."

In July of this year, in Australia, a gang of Arabic speaking goons attacked Zachary Gomo in Caulfield because he was wearing a shirt with Hebrew lettering. Gomo was head bashed and beaten--but he fought back and his attackers fled. Afterwards, the internet was filled with comments that disturbed Gomo (who had served in the IDF) more than the attack itself. The comments said that wearing anything with Hebrew lettering was as provocative as wearing a Nazi armband or a swastika.

In June of this year in Paris (before Operation Protective Edge was forced into action): A Jewish teenager was attacked with an electric Taser by a group of teens. One of the teens, all of whom fled after a passerby intervened, was reportedly also carrying a club. The victim was wearing a yarmulke and tzitzit.

Also in June of this year in Paris: Two teens were chased by a man with an ax and another pair of teens were sprayed with tear gas because they were wearing yarmulkes. In May of this year in Paris, a Jewish woman with a baby was attacked at a Paris bus station by a man who shouted "Dirty Jewess" at her. And in March, a Jewish teacher leaving a kosher restaurant in Paris had his nose broken by a group of assailants who also drew a swastika on his chest.

Now, Jews everywhere are being held responsible for and hostage to Israeli acts of self-defense which, alas, have been touted in the media as aggressive and genocidal acts. The media, the professoriate, international bodies, religious and political leaders, have followed this lethal narrative for so long and so intensely that people really believe that Jews and Jewish Israel are evil and must be attacked on sight.

What we are seeing is this: The decades of Big Lies in the media, inflammatory sermons in mosques, churches, and synagogues, which falsely present Israel and Jews as genocidal Nazis have finally empowered the latent hatred among Arab Muslims and their sympathizers in the diaspora to freely attack individual Jewish civilians as targets and symbols--nay, as collaborators--with the Israeli regime.

I will not hide my Jewish jewelry and I plan to walk freely about my neighborhood. If anyone tries to mess with me--perhaps I will hit them with my walking stick or better yet, smoothly remove my small pink pearl handled revolver from my bag (filled with heavy tranquilizer pellets) and shoot to tranquilize.

No, I do not own a gun but at times like these, I wish I did.

Counter-Jihadist Chief Admits Half of UK Jihadists Have Evaded Police

By Nick Hallett 
Britain's most senior counter-terrorism officer has said that almost half of British jihadists who travelled to Syria have evaded police detection. The Times says Mark Rowley, of London's Metropolitan Police, made the admission as he called for friends and relatives to report people they believe to be “aspiring terrorists”, saying there was “a lot at stake” following the killing of American journalist James Foley.
He said that the growth in the number of radicalised individuals was posing a serious problem for police, especially as nearly half of those travelling to Syria were previously unknown to them.
Mr Rowley added that police activity had been “escalating for many months” as the threat has grown, saying that 69 Syria-related arrests have been made so far this year.
He also said that police are currently working to remove around 800 pieces of Jihadi propaganda from sites such as Facebook and Youtube.
The government estimates that around 500 Brits are currently fighting for Jihadist groups in Syria, including ISIS, however the real number by be far higher as the lack of border controls in the region makes it easy for would-be Jihadists to enter the country without being detected.
Mr Rowley said: “We are appealing to the public, family members and friends to help identify aspiring terrorists... Every reasonable person in the country has been touched by the pitiless murder of James Foley at the hands of Islamic State terrorists.”
“There is a lot at stake. We all need community and religious leaders to continue to speak out against warped narratives and we need everyone to ensure that public debate does not give oxygen to the terrorists,” he added.

UKIP Deputy Chairman: Rotherham Could've Been Avoided With More Democratic Oversight

By Suzanne Evans 
Can anyone with any shred of decency not be left feeling desolate and driven to righteous anger by the news from Rotherham? At least 1400 girls, some as young as eleven, repeatedly gang raped, abducted, prostituted, beaten, intimidated, made to watch pornography of the most vile kind, even doused in petrol and threatened with immolation. How could this have gone unchallenged, here in Britain, for at least sixteen years? The most distressing lines we read in this story must surely be those which describe how officials at Rotherham Council and the police believed some of these desperate and abused girls were making ‘lifestyle choices.’ Worse, that they even regarded some of these child victims ‘with contempt.’ It is incredible to think anyone involved in child protection could ever think this way. There’s liberal and then there’s utterly loony liberal. I seriously question the state of mind of anyone who thinks a child under the age of sixteen can make a sound decision about what must at best - if you really stretch the boundaries of incredulity and notions of ‘consent’ - have been deeply exploitative and sado-masochistic ‘relationships,’ a word I’m really reluctant to use in this context.
If professionals really become so hardened to or so blasé about their work that they start to think like this, then it’s time to end the role they play in making final decisions about an at-risk child’s welfare and push for a seismic shift in attitude and accountability at local government level.
I was a Councillor in the London Borough of Merton at the time Tia Sharp was murdered by Stuart Hazell, her grandmother’s partner and previously her mother’s boyfriend. While the report following Tia’s death concluded opportunities to delve more deeply into Tia’s chaotic family life had been missed, it ultimately absolved anyone of any responsibility.
I was astonished: in my opinion – albeit with the benefit of hindsight - there had been several obvious red flags waving when it came to the risk Tia was in, warning signs that had not been acted upon.
She was missing school; Hazell had at least 30 convictions for offences involving drugs and violence; his relationship with both mother and grandmother successively seemed unnatural to me to say the least. I questioned all these matters in a private meeting with the Cabinet member responsible and Council officers before the report was released to the press. “We see a lot worse,” was basically the justification given, that and “lots of people use drugs and lots of people lead odd lives, and they don’t kill children.”
This is of course very true; ultimately, the only person responsible for Tia’s death was the murderous Stuart Hazell. However the UKIP-Independent coalition I led at the time didn’t think this or the usual ‘lesson’s learned’ mantra, which I see Keith Vaz MP is trotting out again this morning, was good enough.
How many opportunities have we had to learn lessons and how often does this keep happening? Disquieted by a nagging feeling that professionals in child-protection roles were becoming immune to what the rest of us might see as clear ‘wake-up’ calls, we thought Councillors should play a more active role in child protection cases, not least because we felt it necessary in order to discharge our duties as ‘Corporate Parents’ with overarching responsibilities for the safety of children in the borough.
My fellow Councillor, Richard Chellew, addressed the issue and asked to read through the records of children currently known to social workers. He was refused point blank on grounds of confidentiality, which was fair enough, so Richard suggested he might see the files but with names and addresses removed? The answer was again ‘no,’ this time on the basis that an ordinary Councillor ‘would not be skilled enough to understand the cases or know what [we] were doing.’
“I asked again, suggesting that two Councillors who had children and so might be expected to know more about the issues could take a look,” Richard told me, but again the answer was: “No, only the experts can deal with these sorts of things.”
“28 experts missed 60 opportunities to save Baby P,” Richard remonstrated. “Had I seen that file, and all the occasions when his family denied access to him, I would have called the police and, if I had made a mistake, I would have apologised for my error on the grounds of being better safe than sorry,” he argued.
“At that point,” he says, “everyone looked at me as if I was mad.”
Neither Richard nor I could see any reason why, if names and address (and in the wake of Rotherham I would suggest references to ethnicity) are withheld, Councillors should not peruse child-protection case files and felt an ‘unprofessional’ eye not hardened by cases of extreme abuse might well help.
Given that in the wake of Tia Sharp’s murder we had been told that Council didn’t have the resources to follow up every case in the borough where children are living in difficult circumstances, surely that is a good argument to get others’ involved? Involving Councillors we felt would also help prevent the curse of decision making by committee, which dictates that those acting with the support and collaboration of others are far less likely to take radical decisions than an individual who knows he or she will be personally held to account. It’s a natural human response.
Perhaps an individual Councillor risking the wrath of the electorate might not be quite so prepared to give a troublesome parent the benefit of the doubt? We know some Councillors in Rotherham demanded information about domestic violence cases so they could interfere and try and organise reconciliations in inappropriate circumstances, so clearly this approach is not fool-proof approach. But it does at least bring in another level of direct accountability.
Perhaps Councillors could be joined by a panel of lay-assessors? I think it is at least worth a try. Some people are either incapable or unwilling to be good parents and others will always want to exploit children for their own warped and sadistic ends.
We will probably never be able to keep all of our children safe all of the time, but if we made child-protection part of the democratic process, the system would be more robust and allow voters to really hold Councils to account. Then at least these appalling cases might not make quite so many or quite such terrifying headlines.

Au revoir, France

By Carol Brown
If you ever doubted the direction France is headed, you need doubt no more.
The headline reads: “One in six French people say they support ISIS”
Holy halal cow! That’s a lot of people (and I use that term loosely).
So much for the narrative of the “moderate Muslim.” Apparently, there are violent Muslims who seek world domination. And there are a whole lot of other Muslims who don’t behave in an overtly violent way (yet), but who support those who do.
Per the article linked above:
…the big, scary, surprising, number here is France: 16 percent of those surveyed say they support ISIS. That's an awful lot. And that number gets even larger as the demographics get younger….
This is alarming, in part because a growing number of Europeans, often from predominantly Muslim immigrant communities, are not just expressing their support for ISIS in polls: they are traveling to Syria and Iraq to join up. The ISIS fighter who killed American journalist James Foley on video last week spoke with a strong London accent. European governments are rightly worried about the implications of this for their own national security.
But here comes the media malpractice kicker, as the article continues:
But there's more going on here. It's no secret that far-right politics have been on the rise in Western Europe, which includes a growing willingness to embrace extremism and greater intolerance of all kinds. It is ironic but by no means impossible that far-right Islamophobia would rise in Europe alongside a greater approval of the Islamist group ISIS. Extremism is often reactive and ideologically contradictory.
Excuse me. If I may just interject a wee bit of truth here. I really do hate to inconvenience anybody, but uh, it’s not “far-right politics” driving this. It’s the left! It’s the left that has formed an unholy alliance with Islam.
So to the writer of this article: You can stop trying to twist yourself into a pretzel to force the fit of your non-facts and non-logic. No need not scratch your head and wonder how the far right is driving this number while at the same time noting the irony of the right being Islamophic and well, um, but, well “extremism is often reactive and ideologically contradictory.”
Nice try, dhimmi.
Oh, and if you don’t mind, could you stop calling people who are speaking the truth about Islam “Islamaphobic?” It’s the relentless false narrative like this that fuels the very problem you’re reporting on.
OK. Now, back to actual facts.
Per the Gatestone Institute, as of 2012, Muslims comprised the majority of the 100,000 applications for French citizenship each year. The report is well worth reading in full. Here are a few highlights:
Opinion surveys show that to voters in France -- home to an estimated 6.5 million Muslims, the largest Muslim population in the European Union -- Islam and the question of Muslim immigration have emerged in 2012 as a top-ranked public concern. The French, it seems, are increasingly worried about the establishment of a parallel Muslim society there. (snip)
In February, the Persian Gulf Emirate of Qatar announced plans to invest €50 million ($65 million) in French suburbs, home to more than one million disgruntled Muslim immigrants. (snip)
Shortly before Qatar announced its plans to invest in France, Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, who has long cultivated an image as a pro-Western reformist and modernizer, vowed to "spare no effort" to spread the fundamentalist teachings of Wahhabi Islam across "the whole world."
The promotion of Islamic extremist ideologies -- particularly Wahhabism, which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West, but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims -- threatens to further radicalize Muslim immigrants in France. (snip)
According to the France 2 documentary, French slaughterhouses produce far more halal meat than is needed to serve the 6.5 million Muslims who live in France. The documentary reported that roughly 30% of all the meat produced in France is halal, while the Muslim population in France makes up approximately 7% of the total French population.
To avoid the costs associated with running separate production lines for halal and non-halal customers, French slaughterhouses are selling the remaining halal meat as non-halal….
In March, a 23-year-old Islamic jihadist named Mohamed Merah confirmed the threat of homegrown Muslim terrorism in France when, on March 11, he killed three French paratroopers, three Jewish schoolchildren and a rabbi with close-range shots to the head. Merah, a French citizen of Algerian origin, filmed himself carrying out the attacks to "verify" the deaths. He later died in a storm of gunfire on March 22 after a 32-hour standoff with police at his apartment in the southern French city of Toulouse. (snip)
In May, Muslims determined the outcome of the French presidential elections. An analysis of the voting patterns that barreled François Hollande to victory on May 6 as the first Socialist president of France since 1995 showed this was due in large measure to Muslims, who voted for him in overwhelming numbers.
According to a survey of French voters conducted by the polling firm OpinionWay for the Paris-based newspaper Le Figaro, an extraordinary 93% of French Muslims voted for Hollande. By contrast, the poll showed that only 7% of French Muslims voted for the incumbent, Nicolas Sarkozy.
An estimated two million Muslims participated in the 2012 election, meaning that roughly 1.7 million Muslim votes went to Hollande rather than to Sarkozy. In the election as a whole, however, Hollande won by only 1.1 million votes. This figure indicates that Muslims cast the deciding votes which thrust Hollande into the Élysée Palace.
During the campaign, Hollande had offered an amnesty to all of the estimated 400,000 illegal Muslim immigrants currently in France. He also pledged to change French electoral laws so that Muslim residents without French citizenship would be allowed to vote in municipal elections as of 2014. These measures, if implemented, would enable the Socialist Party to tighten its grip on political power, both at the regional and national levels.
As the politically active Muslim population in France continues to swell, and as most Muslims vote for Socialist and leftwing parties, conservative parties will find it increasingly difficult to win future presidential elections in France.
And those are the sad facts, among a multitude of others.
So, to recap:
  • Muslims comprise 6.5% of the population in France. (This minority wreaks a lot of havoc, no?)
  • They are “disgruntled.” (What’s new?)
  • The terror state of Qatar is investing massive amounts of money in France. (What could go wrong?)
  • One if six people in France support ISIS. (Gee, I wonder what the demographics of that group are?)
  • French Muslims voted in droves for a socialist president. (Got that Author of the First Article trying to spin the facts to end in up 180 degrees from the truth?)
  • Oh, and that burger you’re eating. It’s halal. (Hey, wait, didn’t the label say non-halal?)
I often say that Israel’s future is our future. But I could just as easily say the same about France. Her future is also ours if we are not careful about Muslim immigration and if we continue down the path of dhimmitude. Unfortunately, these seem to go hand-in-hand with the fundamental transformation of America.

UK: Petition Demands Resignation Of Police Boss Who Failed To Stop Rotherham Paedos


A petition has been launched calling on Shaun Wright to resign as South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner in the light of allegations that he failed to stop paedophile gangs raping children in Rotherham.

Wright was Cabinet Member for Children's and Young People's Services from 2005 to 2010, the same period when his council was ignoring complains from victims.
In some cases children were terrorised and threatened with murder but both police and the council failed to act. On one occasion a the police attended an incident of gang rape but arrested the victim because she was drunk. There are thought to be around 1,400 victims, who were abused over a period of 1997 to 2013.
A report by Alexis Jay yesterday attacked the council for its failure to protect children. Despite the criticism Shaun Wright is refusing to resign.
Wright was also the Deputy Chairman of the Police Authority before the body was abolished to create the post of Police and Crime Commissioner. This means that at the time of the abuse he was the second most senior politician in South Yorkshire Police.
The former councillor is paid £85,000 a year to protect the public despite his track record. He is refusing to resign despite demands by from a wide variety of senior figures including Jane Collins MEP and Labour leader Ed Miliband.
The petitioner Mike Rouse said: "This man has proved himself to be wholly unable to look after children. His record at Rotherham Council was appalling, so bad that the government had to step in. He now seems to be unable to take responsibility for his own failures.
"How on earth can anyone have any confidence in this man to look after the children and young people of Yorkshire. He should go now and spare the public the indignity of having to keep asking him to do the right thing."

'Who lies, flies': Tough new rules on EU benefit cheats announced in Germany

Germany announced plans for new legislation today that will punish EU welfare cheats with expulsion orders and tougher border controls to prevent those kicked out from coming back."Who lies, flies" was the maxim for the get-tough law proposed at a cabinet meeting held by Chancellor Angela Merkel designed to show Europe that Germany is no longer a soft touch for "benefits tourists." It will go before both houses of parliament before the end of the year and is expected to be ratified into law. Included in the package is a £220million boost for cities in Germany already buckling under an onslaught of migrants - mostly from Romania and Bulgaria - who have stretched local resources to breaking point. The get-tough measures were pushed by the Christian Social Union, the sister party to Mrs Merkel's conservative CDU based in Bavaria. "We support free movement in the EU," said CSU parliamentary leader Gerda Hasselfeldt, "but we won't tolerate any abuse." A government press release said that the measures aimed to enshrine in law "practices which had become normalised through court decisions." Towns will be given support from central government to crack down on unregistered workers who cheat the tax system as well. And a prime target of the new rules is child benefit fraud. Hitherto there have been few checks on large families applying for lavish subsidies for numerous children. Abuses of the system included people applying multiple times for their brood. In the future all will now be required to provide their tax ID number - no number, no handout. If people are caught cheating, they will be taken to holding centres and shipped back to their country of origin. Their details will be logged in a special database accessible to all police and border patrol personnel and they will not be allowed back into the country for a recommended period of five years. Those who do - and get caught - risk a three year jail sentence.Those EU citizens who arrive in Germany will have a six month period to try to find work before being asked to leave "if they have no reasonable prospects of finding work." Individuals will not be entitled to benefits if they have not paid into the system. The pact was hammered out between labour and social affairs minister Andrea Nahles of the centre left SPD party, and minister of the interior Thomas de Maizière of the CDU. Both parties rule Germany in a coalition. The legislation comes as immigration into Germany has hit a 20 year high. Over 1.2 million newcomers were registered in 2013, up 13 percent on the previous year. Germany formed a government committee tasked with monitoring waves of eastern migrants from ripping off its generous social security system earlier this year.

Conservative MP: Enoch Was Right

By Nick Hallett 

A Conservative MP has said that Enoch Powell was right to warn that "non-Christian" immigration would cause social problems. In a letter to a constituent, Sir Gerald Howarth said that the recent Trojan Horse scandal showed that some of these immigrants have a different "ethos" to Christian schools, and that the government is right to intervene to stop them teaching their ideology to British students. Earlier this year, 21 schools in Birmingham were investigated over an alleged takeover by Islamist extremists. Subsequent reports found that a small group of individuals had tried to impose a strict interpretation of Islam on the officially secular schools.
In his letter, which was seen by Political Scrapbook, Sir Gerald writes:
"Clearly, the arrival of so many people of non-Christian faith has presented a challenge, as so many of us, including the late Enoch Powell, warned decades ago.
"Recent events have illustrated that some of these new arrivals have a very different ethos from traditional Christian schools and we are right to intervene to prevent them from teaching divisive ideology to children born here."
Enoch Powell was a Conservative MP who in 1968 caused considerable controversy after giving a speech in which he warned that high levels of immigration could cause social tensions, with the potential for violence.
His speech was nicknamed "Rivers of Blood" after he concluded by saying: "As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see 'the River Tiber foaming with much blood.'"
Powell was also known for his strong libertarian views, resigning from Harold Macmillan's Conservative government over plans to increase public spending. His economic views are said to have inspired Margaret Thatcher.
Sir Gerald Howarth, who serves as MP for Aldershot, is chairman of pressure group Conservative Way Forward who seek to promote the legacy of Margaret Thatcher within the Conservative Party. A member of his staff told Political Scrapbook that he "stands by every word" of his letter.

CLAIM: Austria Is 'Jihad Hub' Second Only to London

By Donna Rachel Edmunds 
Vienna, Austria has been named as a hub for jihadists travelling to Sweden, second only to London as "jihadists playground". Der Standard reports that Austria is being used as a hub for the recruitment and organisation of European jihadists, who then travel through the Western Balkans to Syria.
Commenting on Austria's problem, an American national security expert this week wrote, "the British capital has been known as Londonistan for nearly twenty years among counterterrorism professionals, due to its notorious status as a major hub of the global jihad, thanks to lax British laws that have long permitted extremists to find sanctuary there. . While London deserves its reputation as a jihadist's playground, Vienna is running in second place, and has been for some time, though this is seldom realized outside Central and Eastern Europe."
Turkey also plays a role in the terrorist networks as it both shares a large border with Syria and is linked to Millî Görüş, a controversial movement to which Austria also has links.
Around 130 fighters traveled from Austria to Syria last year, of which only a quarter are understood to be legal Austrian residents. Around half hail from the Caucasus region, which others are mostly either Bosnian or Turkish.
Der Standard reports that Austria has not so far been effective at de-radicalising fighters returning from Syria. There is no social program for those wishing to leave the radical Islamic movement, and a telephone hotline for those wanting to leave has also been postponed repeatedly.
Equally concerning are reports on the tight restrictions on the intelligence services when investigating possible jihadists. The Austrian intelligence agency, the BVT, is not allowed to search social networks such as Facebook or Twitter to uncover possible activity unless it holds a court order permitting it to do so. Even then, if nothing is found that warrants further investigation the information can only be held for a maximum of six months.
John R Schindler, a professor of national security affairs at the US Naval War College explored the Austrian problem in a recent blog post entitled Vienna Calling: How Austria Became a Hub of Global Jihad. He slams the relaxed attitude of both the British and Austrian authorities in dealing with the problem, but concedes that they are starting to wake up to the problem.
In the comprehensive post, he includes a hard-hitting statement from BVT, which reads "Religiously motivated extremism and terrorism - above all of Islamic character - as well as Salafi-jihadi groups continue to present a great potential threat.
The number of young radicalized followers of violent Salafism continues to rise. In this context, the conflict in Syria is of urgent relevance for Austria, since systematic efforts are being made within [Austria] to radicalize and recruit people for the war in Syria.The conflict in Syria has become very popular among violent extremist Salafis. The spectrum of recruits to the conflict in Syria is broadly ethnically diverse. The motivation, however, seems to be uniformly jihadi."
Schindler also notes that the laws in Austria are not conducive to tackling the problem, as terrorism is defined very narrowly. He highlights "a typical case: a Turkish citizen who is said to have been the middleman for the arrested Chechens, a jihad facilitator who was helping them get to Turkey, has been reported to the police, but is still free."
The Austrian officials are long known to have taken a laissez-faire approach to underground networks and spying taking place within their country. Until now, their attitude has been to look the other way as long as it doesn't affect them. But with jihadist fighters now returning to Austria, officials are starting to grow more concerned about what this could mean for Austrian national security.
Although only five to ten percent of jihadists typically become directly involved with terrorist activities upon their return from the Middle East, many more act as founders of new radical cells and as proselytizers. As Schindler puts it, "The option of looking the other way and avoiding the issue, which has been the customary Austrian approach, is defunct."

200 'Militant' ISIS fighters Are Already Back on London's Streets says Police Chief

By Oliver Lane 
London's Chief of Police has today issued a warning that around 200 "militarised" ISIS fighters are already back on the streets of London. The figures, quoted in the Evening Standard, have intensified the debate raging between Britain’s counter-terror heavyweights over how to deal with this escalating problem.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner revealed in his interview on LBC radio this morning: “We think at least 500 to 600 went. Some have come back. We’ve got to keep an eye on them. They risk being militarised and they are in a network of terrorists. It’s a worry because we think two-thirds to three-quarters of them come from the London area, so that’s quite a large number.”
Five to six hundred is the highest number yet quoted by the police, but falls significantly short of the 1,500 fighters claimed by Labour’s Khalid Mahmood MP, who called the official figure “nonsense” last week. 
Hogan-Howe made a strident call for action over the security hazard posed by returning fighters by echoing the words of London’s Mayor Boris Johnson. He said there should be a presumption of guilt over British citizens who travel to Iraq and Syria without good reason to help police deal with the situation. While admitting a change in law should be left to the politicians, he said: “Anything that either stops them going or frankly stops them coming back is a good idea. If in law it works, we should do that.
“It’s a privilege to have a passport, be a citizen of this country, and if you are going to start fighting in another country on behalf of another state or against another state, it seems to me you’ve made a choice about where you want to be.”
This is just the latest blow in the war of words between senior figures over how the law should be used, or changed to deal with the phenomenon of British citizens going abroad to fight. Richard Barrett, the former director of MI5, MI6, counter-terrorism adviser to the Home Office, and one-time forceful critic of British fighters abroad made an unlikely intervention yesterday in the Guardian.
Despite recently authoring a strongly worded report on the danger of foreign fighters in Syria, which he calls “an incubator for a new generation of terrorists”, and an environment where more radical groups flourish at the expense of moderates, Barrett has apparently suffered a change of heart. Taking a position that is very clearly at odds with the London Mayor, the Police Commissioner and his own former views he said “I don't think we should change the laws without a very much more thorough assessment and understanding of the threat”.
Barrett had previously warned that resources available to police and security services to track ISIS fighters in the West were “insufficient to monitor more than a handful of returnees”.

Ban ISIS Symbols: Austrian Minister

By Donna Rachel Edmunds 
A centre-right minister in Austria has cited "tolerance" to call for a ban on membership of the jihadist group ISIS and on the wearing of any ISIS-related symbols. If enacted the move could be incendiary, as the ISIS flag depicts the Shahada, an Islamic creed, and the revered Seal of Muhammed. Austria’s Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner, a member of the conservative ÖVP party, told the Austrian Press Agency “A free society cannot tolerate its tolerance being trampled on,” The Local has reported. She added that the time had come to discuss extremism and terrorism “without taboos.”
A suggestion by Efgani Dönmez, a Green councillor, to create a new law banning radical Islamic movements in Austria also met with the approval of Ms Mikl-Leitner, although she said that Austria’s 1947 Prohibition Act should be left as it is. The Act is used to prevent a resurgence of National Socialism.
Detlef Wimmer, the chairman of the FPÖ party (another right wing party) for the town of Linz, said that there would have to be a “practical approach” to any ban, as “in some cases it will be extremely difficult to convict people of religious extremism and to prove it before a jury”. He also believes that it will be more practical to simply remove asylum or citizenship from any religious extremist and place a ban on travel for those individuals.
The ISIS flag consists of a black banner bearing an inscription of the Shahada and a depiction of the Seal of Muhammed in white. The Shahada is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the one God and acceptance of Muhammed as a Prophet. It commonly reads “There is no God but Allah; Muhammed is the messenger of Allah.”
The Seal of Muhammed is one of the relics that were kept by Ottoman Sultans as part of the Sacred Relics collection. Encased in crystal and edged in ivory, the seal was last used to stamp documents in the 17th century. It is inscribed with the words “Allah” and “Muhammed is the messenger.”
Both of these are used by Muslims generally and don’t necessarily convey allegiance to the Islamic State, therefore the banning of the symbols would be akin to banning the wearing of the crucifix were it being used by militant Christians.
The proposed ban thus highlights the difficulties faced by Western governments when trying to curtail the terrorist activities of a group they have little understanding of.

Muslim Gang Rapists are Springing Up Everywhere. Why Can't We Be Honest About It?

By Milo Yiannopoulos 
The notorious Sydney gang rapes in 2000 were committed by Lebanese Australians. Muslim men raped women and girls as young as 14. Australia, being a sensible sort of place, identified that the rapists were targeting white girls and branded these monstrous acts "racially-motivated hate crimes." Because that's what they were: one ethnicity was specifically targeting another. The Australian girls were vulnerable, and they were abused by Middle Eastern men who considered them "trash." Had these men been at home, they would have raped their own, but in another country, women from outside their own "community" were preferable victims.
Elsewhere in Europe, the problem has been known about for years. In the Netherlands, it's Moroccans and Turks who have taken advantage of legalised brothels to entrap and enslave white girls. Holland has been dealing with and discussing this problem openly since 2001.
And now we have our own Muslim gang rape scandal, with chillingly similar dynamics at play. This time it's Pakistanis, and a staggering 1,400 victims across sixteen years in the town of Rotherham. In 2012, the Times uncovered documents showing agencies were aware of extensive and co-ordinated abuse of white girls by Asian men in Rotherham for which no one had been prosecuted. Once again, a single ethnicity, targeting another.
Only a racist would believe this is a "Pakistani" problem. It isn't. It's a uniquely Muslim cultural phenomenon, as indicated by the prevalence of father-son combinations in so many of the gangs, wherever in the world they appear. And here's another clue it's not just brown-on-white crime: Britain's Sikh community has been complaining for years that its young girls are being targeted by Muslim gangs.
But good luck figuring out the racial and religious dimensions to these crimes if you're getting your news from the Guardian. That newspaper, together with some parts of the BBC, is committing the same error in judgment that the police and council in Rotherham did over all those years. They are turning a blind eye to obviously pertinent facts of the case for political reasons.
There appear to be complex religious and cultural reasons why Muslim men are drawn to rape in gangs, often in family units, with fathers, sons and uncles all raping the same women. But how will we ever know why this is so, and begin to tackle it, until we are honest about what's happening?
This remarkable online document, apparently produced by members of the public, discusses some of these issues - and documents a decade of cover-up and cowardice by the media, politicians and law enforcement. It shows that what has been happening on our streets is better understood by ordinary members of the public than by the people who run their cities.
Rotherham is a Labour area (well of course it is), though it's also somewhere UKIP does strongly in elections - probably because local residents are a lot more realistic about the town's problems than its police force. The BNP even came third in a 2010 by-election. And it's Labour's obsession with political correctness, multiculturalism and avoiding accusations of racism that some say contributed to this disaster.
"Now we can see the terrible harm done by so-called 'progressive' zealots who have made it a thought crime to identify and deal with bad behaviour by minorities, while in another part of the liberal jungle sanctioning the sexual free-for-all," wrote Times columnist Melanie Phillips yesterday.
It is difficult to overstate how awful these crimes were, nor how completely victims were failed by the authorities. One girl was doused in petrol and told she would be set on fire if she didn't comply. Others were forced to watch rapes and told they would be next if they spoke out. The police regarded these girls with as much contempt as the rapists.
And in perhaps the most horrific paragraph in a report published yesterday, we learned that in two cases fathers had tracked down their daughters and tried to rescue them from houses in which they were being held, only to find themselves arrested by police, while the rapists walked free. 
How many council staff do you suppose are under investigation, or have been sacked? Yup, you guessed it: none. Rotherham council's chief executive, Martin Kimber, has not only stayed in his post but he has said he doesn't have evidence enough to prosecute or discipline a single member of the council's staff.
"Failures of leadership," he called it - a modern euphemism for the refusal by bosses to do the honourable thing and take responsibility. "Officers in senior positions responsible for children's safeguarding services throughout the critical periods when services fell some way short of today's standards do not work for the council today," he said. How convenient for him!
If you're wondering just how badly in denial our police and politicians were about all this, by the way, consider a BBC report from 2012 I stumbled across, which recounts that Chief Constable David Crompton was asked if "ethnic origin was a factor" in the Crown Prosecution Service charging suspects. His reply? "No, it's not a factor at all."
It's hard to avoid the conclusion that the Left-wing media appears to be in cahoots with the Establishment to cover up crime because it refuses to acknowledge that there might be such a thing as a racially-motivated hate crimes not committed by a white person.
With lies and denial at those levels, God only knows what's happening in the rest of the country. Will we ever find out? Or are Labour politicians and the police force hell-bent on enforcing colourblindness, even if it means thousands of children being sexually abused? Because, I'm sorry to say, it's simply not plausible that Rotherham is the only town in which this is happening.
It remains true that the majority of child abusers are older white men. But how many white men rape on the scale we've seen in Rotherham and Sydney - not to mention what happens back in Pakistan and the Middle East? In any case, making that statistical observation does nothing to solve a gang problem. White child abusers tend to act alone. This is a specific, known cultural problem with some Muslim communities: gangs of rapists operating on an industrial scale.
The enquiry was told that gang rape was a "usual part of growing up" in some parts of Rotherham. For how many other cities in our country is that the case? Shouldn't we be looking elsewhere, to places where there are similar socioeconomic and ethnic mixes, to see if the same problems exist and help to prevent more young girls from being abused? Or would that be "racist"?
The political Left shrieks blue murder over the slightest indication of overbearing male behaviour when it's a white man. The tone-deaf "Everyday Sexism" project is a weapon wielded almost exclusively at white middle-class men by white middle-class women. But it makes excuses for rapists and even child abusers when the criminals are black, or, especially, from a Muslim community.
It takes a brave politician, especially if they sit on the Labour side of the House, to speak frankly about Muslim attitudes to non-Muslims in Britain today. Remember the outcry when Jack Straw said what everyone in his constituency knew, that white girls were considered "easy meat" by Pakistani rapists?
How long before we admit there's a ethnic gang rape problem in this country, and that the perpetrators are Muslims? And how on earth can we prevent further abuses, if we're not honest about why these things happen and who's involved, and we seek to better understand the dynamics of these communities and what might motivate their young men to commit these crimes?

Rotherham: 1400 Children Groomed, Drugged and Raped by Multiculturalism

By James Delingpole  
Q: When is the sexual abuse of children culturally, socially and politically acceptable?  
A: When it's committed with industrial efficiency by organised gangs of mainly Pakistani men in English Northern towns like Burnley, Oldham and Rotherham, of course.

But obviously you're not allowed to admit this or you might sound racist. That's why, for example, in today's BBC report into the fact that at least 1400 children were subjected to "appalling" sexual abuse in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013, you have to wade 20 paragraphs in before finally you discover the ethnic identity of the perpetrators.
And even then, the embarrassing fact slips out only with the most blushing mealy-mouthedness:
By far the majority of perpetrators of abuse were described as "Asian" by victims.
Well hang on, a second. What this phrase seems to be hinting at is the possibility that the men involved weren't "Asian" (note to US readers: Asian is UK PC-speak for Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, not orientals) but that the victims mistakenly took them to be so. Is that actually the case or not?
Let's have a look at the names of the Rotherham men found guilty by Sheffield Crown Court in 2010 of raping or sexually abusing girls as young as 12 shall we. Maybe that'll help.
  • Zafran Ramzan
  • Razwan Razaq
  • Umar Razaq
  • Adil Hussain
  • Mohsin Khan
Nope. Absolutely no clues there, then...
Still, let's suppose for a moment that the names of the gang members had been, say, John Smith, Barry Thorpe, Arthur Ramsbotham and Quentin Fforbes-Smythe. Are we seriously to believe that they would have been permitted to spend over a decade grooming, trafficking, drugging and raping young girls without arousing the concern of Rotherham Council's extensive social services department or the attentions of the local police?
I doubt it, somehow. It's not as if we're talking here about sporadic instances of carefully concealed abuse which anyone could be forgiven for not having noticed. We're talking about flagrant sexual abuse on an epic scale. Here is what today's independent Inquiry has to say:
In just over a third of cases, children affected by sexual exploitation were previously known to services because of child protection and neglect. It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated. There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone. Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators.
This abuse is not confined to the past but continues to this day. In May 2014, the caseload of the specialist child sexual exploitation team was 51. More CSE cases were held by other children's social care teams. There were 16 looked after children who were identified by children’s social care as being at serious risk of sexual exploitation or having been sexually exploited. In 2013, the Police received 157 reports concerning child sexual exploitation in the Borough.
Over the first twelve years covered by this Inquiry, the collective failures of political and officer leadership were blatant. From the beginning, there was growing evidence that child sexual exploitation was a serious problem in Rotherham. This came from those working in residential care and from youth workers who knew the young people well.
Within social care, the scale and seriousness of the problem was underplayed by senior managers. At an operational level, the Police gave no priority to CSE, regarding many child victims with contempt and failing to act on their abuse as a crime. Further stark evidence came in 2002, 2003 and 2006 with three reports known to the Police and the Council, which could not have been clearer in their description of the situation in Rotherham. The first of these reports was effectively suppressed because some senior officers disbelieved the data it contained. This had led to suggestions of cover- up. The other two reports set out the links between child sexual exploitation and drugs, guns and criminality in the Borough. These reports were ignored and no action was taken to deal with the issues that were identified in them.
The local authorities, in other words, knew exactly what was going on. Yet still they did nothing. Why?
Well we've already answered that, pretty much. It's because the kind of politically correct, left-leaning and basically rather thick people that local authorities like Rotherham Council tend to have working for them are so paralysed by modish concerns about cultural sensitivity that they have made an obscene judgement call: better to allow at least 1400 kids to be hideously abused than to be thought guilty of the far greater crimes of being thought a bit racist or accidentally offending someone.
(And this isn't an incident confined to Rotherham by the way. The same thing happened recently in Oxford, again involving men with decidedly un-Anglo-Saxon names, again over a long period of time because all the relevant authorities were scared of sounding the alarm in case they came across as racist)
Yep, these people really are that thick and warped. They've had it drilled into them - probably on courses like this one, organised by Common Purpose - that they must celebrate "diversity" at every opportunity. And if that means letting a few Pakistani men rape kids, douse them with petrol and threaten them with guns, well who are we to judge? Quite possibly it's one of those vital cultural differences that we'll be trained better to understand when we attend our next Common Purpose course with some title like Embracing The Other: Leadership Strategies For Multicultural Community Development. Till then, let's not be quick to cast the first stone, eh? After all, there may be aspects of our culture that they find equally alien and troubling. The rule of law say; respect for women; children's rights; trendy Western liberal crap like that...

UK: Fury over Britain's 2m illegal migrants

Britain is now home to two million illegal migrants, with soaring numbers still trying to get here, it emerged last night.Experts say it means about one in 30 of the UK’s population has no right to be living here. The rush to start a new life in “soft-touch” Britain sees 52 migrants trying to sneak in every day, according to research by MigrationWatch UK. Last year 19,003 stowaways were seized trying to smuggle themselves in – nearly double the 11,731 caught in 2012. But the figures show that for every person stopped at the border a further 105 may already be living here illegally. This underground population includes people working in the black economy, those who overstay visas and would-be migrants claiming political asylum. It comes as 2,000 migrants from dozens of war-ravaged nations continue to congregate at a squalid camp in Calais. Rather than claim asylum in France they have their eyes firmly set on the UK. Responding to the shock findings last night Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party, said: “These figures blow out of the water any claim made by this or the previous government that our border control system is anything other than irrevocably shattered. “It is frankly terrifying to learn quite how bad things have become. “It is bad enough that hundreds of British-born jihadists are returning through our borders with no controls. “The primary duty of any government is defence of the realm. “What guarantees are there that those who preside over the border can protect us?” MigrationWatch says the scale of illegal immigration is “seriously underestimated”. It says Britain’s illegal population has reached at least one million, but says that number could double when their dependents are added. In total, 63 million people now live in the UK. The Home Office refused to comment, saying it didn’t do “guesstimates”. The Daily Express has been at the forefront of uncovering the truth about Britain’s illegal migrants crisis. Last month alone, 650 attempts by desperate stowaways were recorded in Calais and 550 more at the Channel Tunnel in Coquelles. This paper’s columnist and former Tory minister Ann Widdecombe said: “Every time they are caught on the back of a lorry they claim asylum but we don’t detain them, we let them loose. “The message has got out that you are never likely to be removed because we are a soft touch. “That is why they are not interested in claiming asylum in France.” The epidemic is so out of control that Calais is building a new migrant camp. Its deputy mayor Philippe Mignonet says refugees believe they can “live like kings” in the UK. He added: “They might leave with £3 but they can make £50 a week on the black market. England is too attractive, it’s too easy.” Official figures say almost 200 illegals are bundled into the UK every month. Up to March this year, 566 cases of human trafficking were identified by the National Crime Agency. Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said: “Security at the UK border is our priority and we will continue to strengthen it. “If people have a genuine need of protection they should claim asylum in the first safe country they reach.”

Analysis: New Turkish PM's 'Pan-Islamic' Foreign Policy

Turkey's new premier and outgoing foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu leaves his successor a troubled legacy after a bold policy to expand Turkish influence across the ex-Ottoman empire left the country painfully exposed to the Syria and Iraq crises.
Critics accuse Davutoglu of pursuing ideas that backfired disastrously by backing Islamic rebels in Syria who then went on to create the brutal Islamic State (IS) jihadist group.
Moderates are calling for a recalibration of Turkish foreign policy when outgoing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan takes the presidency on Thursday to mend fences with the West and pursue more realistic goals in the Middle East.
Yet this is far from guaranteed under Erdogan, who said his election victory was not just for Turkey but the Muslim world from Sarajevo to Islamabad.
"With this approach, Turkey has increased its profile but also found itself a part of many conflicts in the region," said Ozgur Unluhisarcikli, director at the German Marshall Fund think-tank in Ankara.
The identity of Turkey's new top diplomat is yet to be revealed but reports it could be the head of Turkey's secret service Hakan Fidan, an Erdogan loyalist, hardly suggest a sharp about-turn in policy.
Davutoglu's unassuming and smiley demeanor belied his reputation as a steely idealogue who was the architect of Turkish foreign policy for most of the past decade.
His thinking is based on his 2001 book "Strategic Depth", where he argues that Turkey should embrace its Ottoman past and use its unique geo-strategic position to restore its influence throughout the Balkans, the Caucasus and the Middle East.
But initial successes in asserting Turkey's power were cancelled out after the Arab Spring uprising when interventionist Turkish policies only brought more strife.
'Crazy and irresponsible'
Turkey stands accused of arming radical groups fighting against the Syrian regime, in the hope that it would quickly bring down President Bashar al-Assad.
"Incapable of convincing its former ally Assad to engage in reforms, Turkey took the crazy and irresponsible decision to support - directly or indirectly - the jihadists," said Bayram Balci of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
He said Turkey's ambiguous relations with the jihadists contributed to their growth in Syria and Iraq.
In a huge personal embarrassment for Davutoglu, IS militants are now holding 49 Turks hostage, including diplomats and children, abducted from the Turkish consulate in Mosul on June 12.
Critics have expressed bewilderment that despite such failures, Davutoglu has been promoted.
"You, yourself, handed over the hostages to IS. You have molded IS into its current shape," said the opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu.
"It's amazing how he has been rewarded," he said.
As the world takes on IS, Ankara has remained silent in order not to endanger the lives of the hostages who are believed to be kept as human shields.  
A Western diplomat said it was Davutoglu's unrealistic assumptions about Turkey's power that pushed the country to become a part of the problem.  
"Turkey cannot pursue an ambitious foreign policy in the region anymore because it has so many security concerns right now. It can only do damage control and try to minimise the losses that can occur from the crisis on its doorstep," he told AFP on condition of anonymity.
NATO member Turkey's relations with Israel have eroded almost to breaking point, in the wake of Erdogan's blistering attacks on the Jewish state.
EU, US relations soured
Meanwhile, Erdogan's periodic clampdowns on social media and anti-government protests have also soured relations with the United States and the European Union.
"Improving relations with the US and the EU will take improving democracy, freedom of expression and rule of law in Turkey," said Unluhisarcikli.  
Political scientist Behlul Ozkan - who has analysed academic articles Davutoglu penned in the 1990s - describes him as "a pan-Islamist who uses Islam to achieve his foreign policy goals".
"He (Davutoglu) believes that the nation-states that were formed in 1918 were artificial... He wants to go back in time to an order based on Islamic unity," Ozkan told the Taraf newspaper.
Still, his policies remain hugely popular among the AKP's pious voters, who hail Davutoglu for raising the country's international profile.
"Davutoglu has opened a new chapter in foreign policy thinking by positioning Turkey as a country of the center" Ibrahim Kalin, one of Erdogan's advisors, wrote in the pro-government Sabah newspaper.
"He has refused to confine Turkey just to the East or to the West."

Israelis Demand End to ‘Turkish’ Coffee: ‘I’m Really Disgusted by Anything Connected With Turkey’ (VIDEO)

Israelis, it seems, are so fed up with the state of once-close relations with Turkey, that some are asking food giant, Strauss, to change the name of its classic Elite “Turkish Coffee,” to something, less… well, Turkish, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported Tuesday.
“Nowadays, I’m really disgusted by anything connected with Turkey,” one wrote on the firm’s Facebook page – and, incidentally, garnering thousands of “Likes.”
“What’s ‘Turkish’ about the coffee? The beans aren’t from there, and it’s produced in Israel,” one complained.
“It’s high time to change the name of the coffee to ‘Black/Israeli/Flavorful/Wonderful’ and so on – just not Turkish!” another wrote.
“It hurts our people’s feelings, and we may have to boycott the product,” one said in a not-so-veiled threat.
The latest spat comes in the wake of crude anti-Semitic remarks made by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in July, assaults and violent anti-Israel protests, insults during hotel bookings, and harassment by Istanbul airport employees.
The company responded to the complaints, pointing out that the term, “Turkish” referred only to the method of grinding the beans and not their origin, that the beans themselves came from Ethiopia, Columbia and Vietnam, and that the coffee was still produced and packaged at the same factory in Lod, since 1963.
While the Turkish brewhaha comes to a slow boil, watch a humorous Hebrew – language commercial for Elite’s “Turkish” coffee set at a taste test – presumably in Turkey, back in 2001, when relations between the two countries were far better:
