Muslim Gang Rapes of British Girls

Muslim Gang Accused on Child Sex ChargesPolice turned a blind eye to allegations of sexual abuse of white girls by gangs of largely Pakistani men for more than a decade, it was claimed yesterday.

Research, reports and case files also revealed that council officials were desperate to cover up any racial link to the abuse of young girls.

The research shows that a string of warnings dating back as far as 2000 were ignored by the authorities. In many cases, police action was taken only against the victims.

Among the alleged crimes for which no one was prosecuted were:

  • A 14-year-old girl being forced to perform sex acts on five men – four Pakistanis and an Iraqi Kurd asylum seeker;
  • A British Pakistani man was found in a car with a bottle of vodka and a 12-year-old. Both were arrested on suspicion of stealing the car. Police also found pornographic images of the girl on the 22-year-old’s phone;
  • A 14-year-old girl missing for a week was found under the influence of drugs in a car with a man 20 years older. They had had sex but he was arrested only for drug possession;
  • A 13-year-old girl was found drunk at 3am in a derelict house with a ‘large group of adult males’ who had plied her with vodka. She was arrested for a public order offence while the men walked away. 

According to previously confidential documents seen by The Times, police in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, found evidence of thousands of similar crimes and described ‘networks of Asian males exploiting young white females’.  The groups were reported to have trafficked victims to cities including Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham. Despite this, just two prosecutions of groups of men for sexual abuse have taken place in South Yorkshire since 1996.

UPDATE:  Rochdale child sex ring inquiry blasts care workers

The father of a victim of the Rochdale sex gang has called for the care workers who let his daughter down to be ‘named, shamed and sacked’ – after a report laid bare the extent of their failings.

Nine men were jailed in May after being found guilty of exploiting girls as young as 13 as part of a grooming ring. A court heard how the victims were routinely plied with drink and drugs before being passed around for sex.

Today, an independent probe into the failings of Rochdale council, the NHS and police found care workers had:

– Missed opportunities to help the victims and bring the perpetrators to justice
– Concluded that the girls were having consensual sex – and may even have been working as prostitutes
– Refused to believe one of the victim’s stories, instead urging her parents to ‘set boundaries’.

You see, the Saudis, in their typical extremist fashion, forgot the last part of the sharia law ruling.

From the Reliance of the Traveller, m10.3:

A woman may not leave the city without her husband or a member of her unmarriageable kin accompanying her, unless the journey is obligatory, like the hajj.  It is unlawful for her to travel otherwise, and unlawful for her husband to allow her to.

Sheik in Australia Arrested for Genital Cutting

A Sydney [Australia] sheikh has appeared in court in relation to the alleged genital mutilation of two children.

Sheikh Shabbir Vaziri, 56, who police sources say is part of a lesser-known branch of Islam, has been charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of female genital mutilation and hindering investigation of a serious indictable offence.

Police will allege the two girls had the procedure, which is also known as female circumcision, performed on them in NSW when they were aged six and seven within the past 18 months.

Three other people have been charged over the alleged genital mutilation.

Egypt: FGM is Cultural, not Religious

Let’s get something clear first: the problem with female circumcision in Egypt has absolutely nothing to do with religion. Even though practitioners often believe the practice has some sort of religious support, religious leaders of both Islam and Christianity have openly and officially condemned it.

Female circumcision is purely cultural; it is thought to have existed in ancient Egypt, Ethiopia, and Greece, and therefore the practice transcends religion.

Its practitioners look at it as a fundamental part of their culture and identity and perceive it as a part of their religious duties.

Yes, Hannah, FGM is cultural.  However, according to the sunnah of Mohammed, it is accepted but not obligatory.

FGM and Spousal Abuse in Mali

Women who underwent genital cutting as young girls may be at increased risk of physical, sexual or emotional abuse from their husband, a study of women in Mali suggests.

The study, of nearly 7,900 women, found that 22 percent of those with genital mutilation said they’d been physically abused by a husband or male partner. That compared with 12 percent of women who’d never been subjected to the procedure.
[ . . . ]
It’s well-known that genital cutting has long-term consequences for women – including sexual dysfunction, childbirth complications, incontinence and psychological disorders.

In the new study, researchers looked at whether there’s a link between genital mutilation and a woman’s odds of suffering abuse from her partner.

So could it be that the physically abused ‘inferior’ women were legally beaten by their husbands according to Islamic sharia law?

No Problem with Gender Equality in Egypt Says Morsi

Egyptian art of two women and hieroglyphicsThe rights of non-Muslims and women are safe in Egypt, Prime Minister Mohamed Morsi said Tuesday, repeatedly telling a US audience that the newly democratic country will remain a secular state.

“All Egyptians represent the majority, all Egyptians — men, women, Muslims, and Christians… regardless of their beliefs, their gender, their color,” Morsi said at the Clinton Global Initiative forum in New York.
[ . . . ]
“We don’t have a real problem in terms of the rights of women,” he said. “However, the corruption is something everybody suffered from.”

Of course, there is a tiny little problem for women if they think they have the right to be the political leader of Egypt.  Or if they don’t like the fact that their husbands can beat them.  Or if they want to go to the grocery store by themselves without wearing a hijab.  Or if they want to have coffee in public with a man who’s not their close relative.  Or the right to be an imam.  Or the right to not be genitally mutilated.  Or the right to . . .

Egyptian Honor Killing Caught on Video

Bloody knifeThe Assyrian International News Agency has a video of an honor killing:

“of a housewife being killed in broad daylight. The horror occurred in Hariri’s manor in eastern province while the crowds stood by and watched. A cellphone was available to film the gory details.”

Viewer discretion is advised.
Here’s the background on this honor killing:

The woman was murdered during the day, in the midst of a crowd in Hariri’s manor in eastern province.

She is in the fetal position while she is being stabbed to death.
[ . . . ]
Apparently, the woman’s crime was that her son had killed the perpetrator’s brother. So, of course, she had to die. And nobody stopped him. The sickening tragedy is made that much more unbearable in light of the fact that nobody stepped in to save this innocent victim.

Egyptian PM Morsi Says Neither Woman Nor Christian Suitable To Be President

woman in coptic cross shirtHe [Morsi] repeatedly vowed to uphold equal citizenship rights of all Egyptians, regardless of religion, sex or class. But he stood by the religious arguments he once made as a Brotherhood leader that neither a woman nor a Christian would be a suitable president.

“We are talking about values, beliefs, cultures, history, reality,” he said. He said the Islamic position on presidential eligibility was a matter for Muslim scholars to decide, not him. But regardless of his own views or the Brotherhood’s, he said, civil law was another matter.

“I will not prevent a woman from being nominated as a candidate for the presidential campaign,” he said. “This is not in the Constitution. This is not in the law. But if you want to ask me if I will vote for her or not, that is something else, that is different.”

Read the rest: Egyptian PM Morsi Says Women, Christians Unfit for Presidency.

It is Islamic sharia law that Morsi refers to when he says he stands “by the religious arguments.”

The Coptic Christians in Egypt are considered dhimmis or second-class citizens and, as such, were forbidden to hold public office, serve in the armed forces or own weapons.

As for women, according to Mohammed in the hadith of Bukhari (9, 88, 219) “A nation that makes a woman their ruler will never succeed.”  So if you’re a Copt and a woman, don’t think about a political career.

British Muslim Woman Beaten in Brutal Exorcism

Poster for Possession FilmA woman was beaten with a walking stick during a brutal exorcism organised by members of her own family, a court heard.

Asma Hussain was tied to a bed and covered with holy water after relations became convinced she was possessed by a demon, it is alleged.

Her husband Ahmed, 60, summoned the local Muslim preacher to carry out the ceremony and encouraged him to hit his wife harder, Snaresbrook Crown Court was told.

Mrs Hussain’s back was described as ‘one massive bruise’ after the cruel and unwarranted attack, in which she also suffered injuries to her face and hands, jurors heard.

Ahmed Hussain, his son Mohammed Kayes Hussain, 28, daughter Salma, 22, daughter-in-law Halima Khatun, 28, and son-in-law Mohammed Aziz, 21, are on trial accused of false imprisonment and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

They are said to have believed that someone had ‘put black magic’ on their victim.

‘It appears that members of Asma Hussain’s family believed that she was possessed by demons,’ said prosecutor Babatunde Alabi.

As a result of this belief, it is alleged that they kept her captive in her own home, tying her to a bed in the living room. They also arranged for an imam to carry out an exorcism on her.

‘During the course of the exorcism, she was held down, had water poured all over her and was beaten with a cane.

‘For some unknown reason, it appears the defendants thought that Asma was possessed by a demon…

The Real Gender War the Left Ignores

Women War and PeaceA reporter takes leftists to task over their lack of response to the oppression and inequality of women in Islamic countries.

For the greater part of this election cycle, we’ve heard a good deal from the left about a fictional Republican “war on women.” Everyone from President himself to Georgetown-law-student-turned-Democratic-mouthpiece Sandra Fluke has tried to convince female voters that Mitt Romney is hostile to the female portion of the electorate.

But thousands of miles away, there is a real war on women. It is one that Obama and his supporters would prefer to ignore.

In the same region where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, were brutally murdered on Sept. 11, women suffer each and every day. Radical Islamic thugs were behind the fatal attack in Benghazi, as well as the riots that spread across the Middle East; Muslim females, however, are persecuted and oppressed not by terrorists, but by their own communities, governments and even families.

Obtaining insurance-covered contraceptives  is the least of these women’s worries. Instead, females in many Muslim countries are focused on having their bodies fully covered from head to toe, aren’t allowed to drive and cannot leave their homes without the supervision of a male family member, [ can be beaten by their husbands for disobedience].  . . .

In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Time magazine investigated this problem in an article called “The Women of Islam,” a piece that remains relevant today. It diagnoses the problem as a profound one, dating back centuries: “The Koran allots daughters half the inheritance of sons. It decrees that a woman’s testimony in court, at least in financial matters, is worth half that of a man’s. Under Shari’a, or Muslim law, compensation for the murder of a woman is half the going rate for men.

“In many Muslim countries, these directives are incorporated into contemporary law. For a woman to prove rape in Pakistan, for example, four adult males of ‘impeccable’ character must witness the penetration, in accordance with Shari’a,” writes Lisa Beyer.

And while all religions must grapple with how to integrate ancient texts, with their sometimes-outdated notions, into modern life, the Muslim world seems to have done far too little in this regard.

Take, for example, Islam’s attitude toward domestic abuse is found in the  Koran (sura 4:34), which has been “interpreted to say that men have ‘pre-eminence’ over women or that they are ‘overseers’ of women and that the husband of an insubordinate wife should first admonish her, then leave her to sleep alone and finally beat her,” as Beyer chillingly wrote.

Not much has changed in the decade or so since. It was only two years ago when Time magazine ran the horrific and now infamous cover picture of, Aisha, an Afghan woman with her nose and ears cut off by the Taliban for fleeing her abusive in laws.

There is no excuse for this kind of medieval behavior in the 21st century. And yet it goes on. As Riffat Hassan, professor of religious studies at the University of Louisville, told Beyer, “The way Islam has been practiced in most Muslim societies for centuries has left millions of Muslim women battered bodies, minds and souls.”

The Arab Spring, which Obama has celebrated, has hardly been a boon for women. In fact, quite the opposite. “For many Egyptian women, sexual harassment — which sometimes turns into violent mob-style attacks — is a daily fact of life,” reports the BBC. . . .

It seems, then, that the “revolutions” in the region have only empowered fanatics to take their misogyny further out into the open. . . .

Writes Mark Whittington for Yahoo, “It seems the Obama administration is capable of accusing Republicans of hating women for not wanting to see the Catholic Church hand out free birth control contrary to the Church’s doctrine. While it is doing this, it is treating with a terrorist group that has as its governing platform the imposition of Shari’a Law, which would send Egyptian women into lives of degradation and oppression.”

Worst of all is that thousands of Muslim women have suffered from female genital mutilation if they don’t comply with these strict rules or have been the victim of honor killings — murders conducted by spouses or family members in the event of misbehavior. There is a growing trend of honor killings  happening in the U.S., as well.

This, too, demands attention from the administration. But the silence has been deafening.

The real issue is the tolerance of the intolerant. If President Obama, many on the left and the media truly cared about women’s rights, they would acknowledge the real war on women instead of tip-toeing around it for political gain. A true champion of women’s rights stands up for all women, all of the time, not just when it’s expedient in an election year.

Iranian Cleric Warns Woman to Cover Up Woman Warns Cleric to Cover His Eyes

Iranian Woman with Raised FistAn Iranian cleric said he was beaten by a woman in the northern province of Semnan after giving her a warning for being “badly covered,” the state-run Mehr news agency reported.

Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti said he encountered the woman in the street while on his way to the mosque in the town of Shahmirzad, and asked her to cover herself up, to which she replied “you, cover your eyes,” according to Mehr. The cleric repeated his warning, which he said prompted her to insult and push him.

“I fell on my back on the floor,” Beheshti said in the report. “I don’t know what happened after that, all I could feel was the kicks of this woman who was insulting me and attacking me.”
