  • Summary: 

    In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.

    Before and after the rape, the man prostrated himself in prayer. “He told me,” said the girl, “that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God.”

    ....

    A scripture-based religion is not simply what its adherents (and others) would like it to be; it has a discernible content. While Christianity and Judaism allow for the development of doctrine, there is no similar provision in Islam. The vast majority of Muslims believe that scripture must be interpreted in the literal sense, and, if one does that, one cannot easily dismiss the Islamic State’s teachings about sex slavery.

    For a long time, many Western citizens have deceived themselves about Islam. They were sure that jihad was primarily an “interior struggle” rather than a religious war. They denied that Islamic law prescribed the death penalty for apostasy. Contrary to all the evidence, they persisted in believing that there is no compulsion in the Islamic religion. Now, by refusing to believe that there is a theological justification for sex slavery, they are in denial again. One wonders how much more evidence they will require.

Yet Jay says those are not the words she would use: "I have an aversion to phrases like that," she said. Instead, she believes the Labour-dominated council turned a blind eye to the problem because of "their desire to accommodate a community that would be expected to vote Labour, to not rock the boat, to keep a lid on it, to hope it would go away."

  • Summary: 

    In word and deed, in Islamic and non-Islamic nations, Muslim men appear to think that non-Muslim women—impure “infidels”—exist solely to gratify their sexual urges.

    First, consider the beliefs and actions of those committed to waging jihad for the cause of Allah, as the Islamic State:

    In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old [non-Muslim] girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted. He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her. When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion. “I kept telling him it hurts — please stop,” said the girl, whose body is so small an adult could circle her waist with two hands. “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to” Allah.

    Yet such behavior is not limited to fanatical jihadis, who have “,” as most  will assure us; rather it permeates the totality of Islamic culture.

    Consider recent events in Pakistan: three Christian girls walking home after a hard day’s work were accosted by four “rich and drunk” Muslims—hardly ISIS candidates—in a car. They “misbehaved,” yelled “suggestive and lewd comments,” and harassed the girls to get in their car for “a ride and some fun.” When the girls declined the “invitation,” adding that they were “devout Christians and did not practice sex outside of marriage,” the men became enraged and chased the girls, yelling, “How dare you run away from us, .”  They drove their car into the three girls, killing one and severely injuring the other two.

  • Summary: 
    • As often cruelty to women happens not only behind closed doors, but in the public square, we can only guess how this display affects both women and men. Sons see how their mothers are treated; this too doubtless informs their behaviour.

    • It is important not to assume that the members of British grooming gangs consider themselves jihadis entitled to capture non-Muslim girls. They do not even appear at all pious. But knowledge of such practices is likely to have some impact on Muslims coming from countries where some form of slavery or indentured servitude still exists.

    • Sadly, in the case of Britain's grooming gangs, religious ideology does not play a role in forbidding child sexual grooming. It is important to examine just how crucial a factor this seems to have been in community silence about them.

But the dire result can be the brutish misogyny we see in the Oxford sex ring." — Taj Hargey, imam of the Oxford Islamic Congregation.

    • There are decent Muslims everywhere who work hard to counter all the anti-social and criminal activities in which so many of their co-religionists engage and the theological positions through which they try to justify what they do. But terrorist attacks, anti-Semitic hate speech, and sexual harassment of young white women are real crimes committed by a different kind of Muslim and must be addressed as such.

  • Summary: 

    The political class’s silence on Muslim grooming gangs is shameful.

    Britain is a country where a politician putting his hand on a middle-class woman’s knee causes more outrage than the sexual abuse of scores of working-class girls by men from Pakistani backgrounds. This is the conclusion we must draw from the  scandals of the past year. Or rather from the striking disparity between what becomes a #MeToo scandal and what doesn’t. A posh  causes media meltdown, Twitterstorms about ‘the patriarchy’, and soul-searching in parliament about men’s wicked behaviour, while the exploitation and rape of working-class girls in towns like Huddersfield provokes little more than an awkward tut of disapproval.

    • This problem is, in some measure, reflected in the UK, where Muslim women (mainly of Pakistani origin) face limitations on their participation in the workplace, in higher education, and even knowledge of the English language -- matters examined by Dame Louise Casey in her 2016 government review into opportunity and integration.

    • Bringing Pakistani attitudes into the UK, often within segregated communities, only serves to perpetuate the belief that women are intrinsically the inferiors of men in all respects.

    What explains the ongoing victimization of European women by Muslim men—which  and has become epidemic in Germany Sweden, and elsewhere?

    While these sordid accounts are routinely dismissed as the activities of “criminals,” they are in fact reflective of nearly fourteen centuries of Muslim views on and treatment of European women.  Nothing in Kate’s account—not even the otherwise extreme aspect of taking her to Morocco to be a sex slave—has not happened countless times over the centuries.

It’s unacceptable.”

  • Summary: 

    Lucy Allan MP is fighting the good fight in Telford, asking some tough questions about the widespread child rape that was taking place there. Ms Allan and others refer to the systematic rape of children as child sexual exploitation (CSE), and I make no criticism of her for that, but I will stick to the old-fashioned term child rape as I feel it is more accurate.

    Ms Allan asked in Parliament why ‘’.

    I don’t think it is that complex. A 13-year-old was allegedly raped by ‘multiple perpetrators’, and they say they thought she was consenting and over 16. The CPS believe the jury will nod along when these alleged perpetrators say: ‘Yes, we thought she was consenting, this 13-year-old, and we really, really believed she was 16. We all believed, all of us, the whole gang thought this 13-year-old was having a great time.’

    Amazing. A drunken date gone wrong between two 20-somethings at university will see a prosecution before you can say ‘But she invited me back and took all my clothes off.’

    A 13-year-old girl with a bunch of men . . . oh, we think she consented.

    All victims are equal, but some are more equal than others.
