Muslims groups around the world are crying Islamophobia and playing the victim card as horrific Islamic-motivated crimes, such as grooming and rape-gangs, rage on with impunity throughout the Western world, especially in Europe. Rape or grooming gangs, which are almost entirely Muslim, are committing a crime that is religiously mandated in Islamic doctrine.
Muslim grooming gangs have been operating unchallenged in Europe for over 20 years, especially in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and France. These widespread and highly organized gangs continue to rape and pimp non-Muslim underage schoolgirls who are used as sex slaves and sometimes tortured or killed. Just recently, in mid-2013, British police arrested 45 mostly Muslim men (mainly Pakistani and Bangladeshi) in West Yorkshire belonging to the largest grooming gang uncovered in the UK.
Throughout Europe, gang members are being described as “Asians”, and not Muslim. Governments, police forces, social services, childcare agencies, the mainstream media, and even academics fear being falsely accused by leftists and Muslim groups of Islamophobia or “racism” if they were to publicly identify the gangs as Muslim. In Britain, a detailed and comprehensive report will be issued next year illustrating the failure of the government to stop Muslim grooming gangs.
No country with a Muslim population is immune to grooming gangs. America is on the same path as Europe and trailing not too far behind. In fact, Muslim grooming gangs (mainly Somali) have already found their way to the streets of America. These gangs have been operating for over 10 years in Minnesota, Tennessee, Michigan, and Ohio. The largest grooming case in U.S. history was from Somali immigrant communities in Minneapolis (MN) and Nashville (TN), in which 29 Somali Muslims were indicted in 2010 for kidnapping, raping, and selling underage girls between 2000 and 2010.
Canada and Australia are also seeing their fair share of Muslim grooming gangs. But as with Europe, government agencies assume the politically-correct approach in insisting that Islam has nothing to do with this crime, and the mainstream media fails to report these gang members as being mainly Muslim. In doing so, the rape and exploitation of thousands more vulnerable schoolgirls are being facilitated. Also, many Muslim gang-rapes go unreported because the victims are too scared or embarrassed to report these crimes.
Why is this horrific global crime of child grooming a phenomenon that occurs mainly amongst Muslim immigrants from Islamic countries? As it turns out, this crime is religiously and politically motivated by Islamic doctrine, which calls for the capturing, raping, and prostituting of non-Muslim women and children after battle, as well as keeping or selling them as sex slaves. Mohammed himself was a slave-owner, and had sex slaves whom he captured in battle. He advised his male followers to imitate his example. In Islam, everything that Mohammed did must be emulated, as he is considered to be the exemplary leader, the perfect man.
Is it any wonder why many Muslims see nothing wrong with grooming or possessing sex slaves? Nor do they see anything immoral or illegal in committing other Islamic-motivated crimes, such as honour killing, female genital mutilation, mosque preachings that nourish homegrown terrorists, street prayer that blocks public streets, street killing of non-Muslims, suicide bombing or martyrdom, as well as homophobia and Jew-hatred.
All these acts are religiously mandated in the Koran and other Islamic doctrines that include the most venerated and reliable legal text Reliance of the Traveller. All acts are instances of Islamic or sharia law in action. There is no revulsion, shame, or guilt involved on the part of the perpetrator, because these actions are entirely acceptable and encouraged in Islam. They run contrary to Western culture, and go beyond merely disrupting the society’s public order and public peace that are essential for any civilized nation to survive.
Sharia acts such as grooming are part of a wider strategy to subjugate and destroy western civilization from within, and to establish Islam as the dominant world power. This is referred to as a “civilization-jihadist process” in the Muslim Brotherhood’s 1987 Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America. Subjugation of non-Muslims is what Mohammed intended when he ordered Muslims in Medina not to integrate into society after immigrating to their new place, but to form a separate body, to keep their own laws, and to make the host country comply with them. Immigration, too, is a religious obligation to expand Islam into new territories and establish its supremacy over all other religions through the enforcement of sharia acts on the host society.
Hence, Muslim grooming and other Islamic-motivated acts constitute sedition, treason, or acts of war, as they are carried out with the intention of eventually overthrowing the government and creating a global Islamic caliphate (or unified Islamic nation-state). The preservation of Western countries in which groomers have been made citizens is being threatened by their seditious acts of sharia. The Muslim grooming gangs, along with other perpetrators of sharia acts, need to be identified in the terms that define them — religion.
As the West continues to ignore the fact that most of the groomers are Muslims who view the West as the enemy to be conquered, sharia acts continue to chip away at European values with conviction and impunity. The strategy of undermining the West is operating at full speed in Europe. Americans, also in jeopardy of losing their traditional and cultural values, need only look across the pond to get an idea of what’s to come in their own country. There is a lesson to be learned from Europe: identify the gang-rape assailants in terms of their religion and suppress sharia now, or reap the consequences of sharia being enforced as a way of life, as evidenced in parts of Europe.

Arab Muslims are murdering black Africans from Ethiopia and harvesting their organs for sale to wealthy Arabs.
Arab Muslims are conducting house to house searches, dragging the African men, women and children out into the streets. Often beating them, torturing them, raping both the men and women. Then murdering them.
Arab Muslim slave owners beat their African slaves into submission.
So, where is the ACLU? Where is the NAACP? Where is the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson?
Where is that hypocrite Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam?
Oh yeah, conflict of interest.
Slavery is not dead. No, it is alive and well. And we have those racist Arab Muslims to thank for that.
And their Islamic ideology of racial supremacy and indentured servitude.
But equally so, we can thank those people I mentioned above.
And let’s not forget Barack Hussein Obama. Some might think that he would find offense that black Africans are being enslaved today in 2013. Some might even think that he would find offense that black Africans are being rounded up, beaten, tortured, raped and murdered. Especially since he is a black African as well.
Well, some might think wrong.
You see, there is a conflict of interest with Barack Hussein Obama as well. A conflict that transcends the inhumanity of slavery. And that is the conflict of the cult of Islam that Obama has pledged his allegiance to.

President Jose Eduardo dos Santos of Angola
Angola has ordered the shutdown of all mosques and declared Islam illegal. Becomes the first nation in the world to issue a ban on Islam.
by, Umm Ayoub | Ajib - France
The fight against Islam does not seem to be exclusive to westerners. According to the African press, Angola is determined to eradicate Islam from its territory.
Thus Muslims Luanda saw their mosque being destroyed. The municipality of the town was radically breaking the only mosque in the city. Just days later, this is the Mosque of Viana was reduced to dust.
To excuse these unjust acts, the governor of the city said that the government of the country was not ready to legalize the construction of mosques. Similarly, earlier this week, the Minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva said: “With regard to Islam, the legalization process has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Man, their mosques will be closed until further notice. ”
Now the main task of the Angolan government would destroy all the mosques located in the country because their status is considered “illegal”. This “illegal” status is further enhanced by the fact that the Muslim religion is considered contrary to the customs and the habits of the country. Therefore, leaders want the ban at all costs.
Although the proportion of Muslims is small, it prevents our Angolan brothers are suffering from this anti-Islam political regime. Allah assists and facilitates the Hijra!
A report has been issued stating the following:
“The legalisation of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights [and] their mosques will be closed until further notice,” said minister of culture Rosa Cruz e Silva.
The minister called Islam a “sect” which would be banned as counter to Angolan customs and culture.
Following the ban, there were unconfirmed reports that mosques across the vast southern African nation were being destroyed.
“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” President Jose Edurado dos Santos told the Osun Defence daily.
Muslims account for less than 1% of the population of 19 million, while more than half of this former Portuguese colony subscribe to Christianity.
Clashes between the two communities are frequently reported in the local media. Muslims, many of whom migrated from west Africa and Lebanon, often face hostility from lawmakers in Angola.
Along with Islam, 194 other “sects” have been outlawed.
“Besides these, there is a long list of more than 1,000 applications to be authorised,” said Silva.
School wrote to parents telling them their eight-year-old children had to attend workshop on Islam – or be branded RACIST on their permanent record
Headmistress Lynn Small wrote to parents about multicultural school trip
She said children would attend workshop at Staffordshire University
Pupils would receive ‘Racial Discrimination note’ if they didn’t go, she said
Parents at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington complained
Staffordshire County Council stepped in and head had to apologise
by, The Muslim Issue - Worldwide | Harriet Arkell – The Daily Mail - UK
Parents today accused a primary school of trying to ‘blackmail’ them after they were told their children
would be marked down for racial discrimination if they did not attend an ‘Islam workshop’.
The headmistress of Littleton Green Community School, in Huntington, Staffordshire, wrote to parents
telling them about the school trip to a multicultural workshop at Staffordshire University next week.
They were told the Years Four and Six children would be looking at religious artefacts on their visit – and threatened with being labelled as racists ‘throughout their school career’ if they did not go.
Littleton Green head Lynn Small wrote to parents and carers of children at the school on Wednesday, saying the visit was organised to fulfil the part of the national curriculum requirement that children ‘experience and learn about different cultures’.
She said the trip would give pupils time to ‘explore other religions’ and said they would be looking at exhibits ‘similar to those in a museum’.
But the letter said:
‘Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to
your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.’
It went on: ‘All absences on this day will be investigated for their credibility and will only be sanctioned with a GP sick note.’
Today angry parents criticised the school’s ‘ludicrous’ threats and accused Mrs Small of attempting to ‘blackmail’ them into sending their children on the trip, which they have been asked to pay £5 a head for.
Mother Gillian Claridge, 55, said: ‘How dare they threaten to brand the children racist at such a young age?
It’s going to make them feel like little criminals.
THE ORIGINAL LETTER FROM SCHOOL HEAD LYNN SMALL TO PARENTS:
As part of the National Religious Education Curriculum together with the multicultural community in which we live, it is a statutory requirement for Primary School aged children to experience and learn about different cultures.
The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions.
Children will be looking at religious artefacts similar to those that would be on display in a museum. they will not be partaking in any religious practices.
Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.
As such our expectations are that all children in years 4 and 6 attend school on Wednesday 27th November to take part in this trip.
All absences on this day will be investigated for their credibility and will only be sanctioned with a GP sick note.
If you would like to discuss this further please contact our RE Coordinator, Mrs Edmonds.
‘The very nature of religion is all about choice – on this occasion they were not being given any choice at all.
‘It was draconian move and it has left a lot of parents fuming.’
Mother-of-four Tracy Ward said: ‘I was shocked by the letter. To be told my kids have got to attend this workshop is disgusting.
‘Everyone should have a choice, but that’s my opinion and I don’t want a stain on my kids’ record as a result.
‘They are not old enough to be called racist.’
Her sister Donna, whose daughter also attends the school, said: ‘It’s not our religion. We should have a right
to stop our children going.’
Stacy Waldron, 26, who has an eight-year-old daughter at the school, said: ‘I feel my child will be racist if I don’t allow her to go.
‘This is my choice, not hers, and she shouldn’t have to pay for it.’
Around 100 pupils were expected to take part in the course, which would have involved them being shown Islamic artefacts.
But after parents contacted the school and council chiefs intervened, they were then forced to make a U-turn.
Yesterday Mrs Small wrote to parents apologising for ‘inaccuracies’ in the previous correspondence., and asking them to ‘on reflection disregard a section from the earlier letter’.
South Staffordshire Conservative MP Gavin Williamson said the original threat was ‘bonkers’.
He said: ‘The idea of attaching a racial discrimination note to children’s education records saying it will
remain on their file for the duration for their school career seems unfair, particularly when it is not the
child’s decision whether or not he or she attends.
‘It seems a very heavy-handed approach.’
Defending the decision, Mrs Small said that exposing the pupils to other faiths was part of the school’s statutory duty.
She said: ‘We are a mainly Christian school, but we have to cover at least one other religion as part of the national curriculum.
‘This visit is part of that. They would not be taking part in any religious practices.
’We have pupils and teachers at the school who belong to the Islam faith and it is right for the children to understand and appreciate their faith as well as their own.’
– Headmistress Lynn Small
‘We have had similar workshops on a variety of religions in the past – including one on Islam – with no problems at all and the children have absolutely loved it.
‘We have pupils and teachers at the school who belong to the Islam faith and it is right for the children to understand and appreciate their faith as well as their own.’
The school, which was told it ‘required improvement’ in an Ofsted report earlier this year caters for 341
pupils aged between three and 11.
A spokesperson for Staffordshire County Council said: ‘This is a school matter and the council was only contacted once the letter had been sent.
‘We believe it is important for children to find out more about different cultures.
‘However parents also have a right to withdraw their children from religious activities. Clearly it is not appropriate for comments about racial discrimination to be made in these circumstances.’
Muslim Brotherhood: A guest speaker at SOAS had to be ushered to safety
by, Robin De Peyer | The London Evening Standard
A guest lecture at a London university was abandoned when protesters backing Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood chased the speaker from the stage.
Speaker Mohamed El-Nabawy had to be ushered off stage by security guards when around 30 demonstrators stormed a lecture theatre at Bloomsbury’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), which is part of the University of London.
They were said to have targeted the public discussion, focusing on the challenges facing Egypt, because of Mr El-Nabawy’s ties to the Tamarod group which opposed ex President Mohammed Morsi.
The movement played a key role in the ousting of Muslim Brotherhood-backed Morsi in June this year.
Footage which has emerged online shows the chaotic scenes as chanting demonstrators take control of the lecture theatre and guests are led to safety by security guards.
A spokesman for the university’s Palestinian Society, which organised the event, said: “While we fully respect, and understand, the highly-charged context of any discussion on contemporary Egyptian politics, we believe that the disruptions pre-empted any possibility of fruitful exchange.
“We apologise to our guests for any distress these events may have caused, and thank the SOAS staff for their cooperation and support.”
The society blamed members of the public who are not affiliated with SOAS for the disruption at the event, which was held last month.
No arrangements for the lecture to be rescheduled have yet been made.
Scotland Yard said there was no record of police attending the demonstration.
The baby was believed to be just five or six weeks old when she was ‘cut’
Police hope it will be the first prosecution for secretive and horrific practice
Although illegal since 1985, no one has yet been prosecuted
by, Sam Webb | The Daily Mail – UK
Police officers in London have arrested two people over the genital mutilation of a baby girl, it has been reported.
The alleged criminals live in Britain and the baby is believed to have been mutilated at five to six weeks old – believed to be the youngest case reported.
Female genital mutilation involves the cutting or removal of female sexual tissue and has been illegal in the UK since 1985.
However, because a culture of secrecy surrounds the procedure, no one in the UK has ever been prosecuted for the crime, but officers hope this case could lead to the first.
Police have submitted a file to prosecutors but doubts remain because, although the little girl is now a British national, it is not known if she was at the time.
Despite the high number of cases – 80 so far this year – nobody has yet been prosecuted for the practice.
Last month the Crown Prosecution Service said it is studying five case files passed on by the Metropolitan Police.
Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders recently said a charge would be made relatively shortly, reports the Evening Standard.
More than 1,500 new cases of female genital mutilation have been revealed by a single London maternity unit and staff admit that other cases could have ’slipped through the net.’
St George’s hospital in Tooting has treated nearly 200 women a year since it started keeping records on the violent practice, it emerged last month.
While most of the 1,546 victims treated in the hospital’s specialist unit were born in Somalia, disturbing statistics show that at least 11 were born in the UK.
The operation is usually performed on children or young girls before entering adolescence, though ages vary from community to community.
Families often club together to fly professional ‘cutters’ to the UK from Africa, after which they perform mutilations on pre-pubescent girls for as little as £40, often without anaesthetic, using blunt knives, razor blades or scalpels.
Due to the nature of the wounds, problems can occur later during childbirth.
While the practice has been illegal in the UK since 1985, there have so far been no prosecutions due in part to victim’s reluctance to come forward, and also because some women do not recognise it as a crime.
The practice is also specifically outlawed in Belgium, Sweden and some US states.
In Africa several nations, including Somalia, have made declarations against the practice though across the continent legislation is patchy and difficult to enforce.
FGM – A DEADLY PRACTICE
Female genital mutilation, or FGM, is a common practice among some Muslim communities across the middle of Africa, including Somalia, Eritrea, North Sudan and central Mali.
It is also present in Muslim communities in Indonesia, Oman, Yemen and the United Arab Emirates, among others.
The operation involves cutting or removing of female sexual tissue. It can also involve stitching using silk thread or catgut.
The process is supposed to cleanse the woman of sexual impurity and victims can spend up to 40 days bound from the waist down while healing.
Given that most surgeries are performed by untrained women, commonly aunts of the girls or village matrons, risks include infection, pain, sterility, and death due to blood loss.
Pictured Above: Iftikhar Ahmad of the London School of Islamics Trust
by, Rachel Molschky | Cherson and Molschky
Iftikhar Ahmad of the London School of Islamics Trust is a master propagandist who has been “commenting” on our most recent articles, though his comments are just as long as the articles themselves. Basically a cliché of the typical propaganda Muslims are taught to answer whenever there is any criticism thrown their way, these articles are an attack on Britain with statements like, “British schooling and the British society is the home of institutional racism.”
Apparently Mr. Ahmad presents his arguments on other sites as well. Paul Austin Murphy of Liberty GB decided to address Ahmad’s ridiculous claims back in April 2013: “Iftikhar Ahmad Says: Islamise UK Schools!” Mr. Murphy makes some valid points, and after posting six painfully long “comments” by Ahmad in the effort to allow dissenting opinions and self-defense from the Muslim front, I too feel the need to address some of his claims. (Though not all- his latest comment is three pages long, and I’m not going to waste my time answering each point.)
If this is the same Iftikhar Ahmad, he is associated with the Muslim Council of Britain and therefore has a special interest to defend the 72-page brochure that Paul Wilkinson analyzed in his latest article, “The Blueprint to Islamise State Education.” However, this site is not meant to be a platform for Muslim propaganda, but rather, is dedicated to showing the dangers of uncontrolled Muslim immigration to the West which has ulterior motives with Muslims intent on Islamicizing the entire world. And let’s not forget that one of the founders of the Muslim Council of Britain, Chowdury Mueen-Uddin, was recently sentenced to death in Bangladesh for the murder of 18 people in 1971, yet he was in the UK, spewing the same kind of propaganda as Iftikhar Ahmad here. Should he be given a platform on this site? I think I’ve been more than fair in posting what I’ve already posted of his “kuffarophobic” point of view.
With that said, let’s look at some of what he wrote:
” The Muslim community has been passing through a phase of fourth Crusades. The battleground is the field of education…”
Crusades? Sounds melodramatic. With an open door policy on Muslim immigration, state-funded Muslim schools, and people such as PM David Cameron making statements like, “It is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the Muslim way of life, not the other way around,” where exactly are these “Crusades” happening?
“A true Muslim believes in Prophet Moses and the Prophet Jesus and without them one cannot be a Muslim.”
Sure, and they believe they were Muslims and that the Torah and Christian Bible have been corrupted (even though ancient Torah scrolls are exactly the same as the Torah today), and what is stated in them is now null and void because of that “corruption”, replaced with the Qur’an. The Muslim belief that it was Ishmael on the altar rather than Isaac demonstrates that the Muslim faith is not in keeping with Judaism or Christianity and is not the supposed “continuation” with Muhammad being the “final prophet.”
“My suggestion is that in all state, independent and Christian based school special attention should be given to the teaching of Comparative Religion and Islam should be taught by qualified Muslim Teachers to make the children aware the closeness of Islam to Christianity and Judaism which will help them to think about Islam, as ‘A Pragmatic and Modern Way of Life,’ during their life time.”
There really is no comparison whatsoever as I’ve already pointed out. Perhaps Islam should be taught to our children, not from a Muslim-biased point of view, but rather, from a qualified teacher who can show students the hatred against us and explain the source of this terrorism throughout the history of Islam and still to this day.
“Children should be taught about the contribution Muslims have made to civilisation in order to combat threats of extremism and discrimination. It will help native children to develop positive attitudes towards Muslims.”
Contributions such as over 270 million dead bodies? Or the handful of Muslim Nobel Prize winners as opposed to the nearly 200 Jewish recipients of the award? In fact, Jews make up 41% of the recipients, whereas Muslims make up around 1%, while Jews round out about .2% of the world population, and Muslims account for about 1/4 of it. Wonderful contributions indeed.
“One of the major reasons for the alienation of British Muslims is a lack of clear identity.”
This lack of identity is due to a lack of assimilation and attending mosque where they are taught to hate the general British population. (Or American population, Norwegian population, etc., depending on where they live.)
“Muslim children are victim of racial abuse and discrimination.”
Whatever racial discrimination there might be, it is minimal compared to the anti-Western hatred Muslims feel. Who was responsible for 7/7? Lee Rigby’s murder and other attacks and plots which are constantly being thwarted by authorities? All the sex grooming cases and rape jihad against the native British population? You are correct about the existence of racial abuse, but it is being done by Muslims against Brits.
“Muslim community does not want to integrate with the British society, indulging in incivility, anti-social behaviour, drug and knife culture, binge drinking, teenage pregnancies and abortion.”
Oh sure, such a rough bunch. If the overall British population is so unruly, why do you move there? Why do you leave your “pleasant” and “moral” Muslim countries for such a terrible “crime-infested third world nation” like the UK? And why do Muslims account for a greater percentage of the prison population than what should be their share if Muslims are so “good” and Brits are so “bad?”
“All this immigration being too high works both ways. Perhaps Britain should stop meddling with other countries and telling them how to live – or being involved in looting of other countries. Only then can we have a right to complain about immigration! Even if they speak some English, many would still resent and despise our culture and values in their thoughts. If you lived in a foreign land, would you change your ideas and beliefs? I look forward to the day we stop all the British coming to live in Spain until they can speak Spanish….At the moment there are 808,000 living here.”
Brits do not go to Spain in order to “Britishize” Spain. Most native Brits come from a Christian background, same as Spaniards, so their core values do not differ. Reasons for Brits moving to Spain include the nice weather, a taste for the culture or the beauty of the country, or a job opportunity. They do not go there to sponge off the government and actually contribute to the economy rather than bleed it dry. They also do not produce 72-page documents with lists of demands. There is no influx of crime or terrorism due to British immigrants and no Brits protesting in the streets to behead Spaniards. And the Spanish are more concerned about their Muslim population, rather than the Brits. Those are just some of the differences there.
The articles posted on this blog should make our position clear. We will not continue going back and forth on this and feel that 2000-word “comments” are just too much. Mr. Ahmad has had his opportunity to state his case, but this blog is not a forum for empty rhetoric and attacks on Western society. Take your propaganda elsewhere.
Anthony Marsh and Lee Davis. Homosexual Child Rapists.
by, Orange – UK
South Yorkshire, UK: One of two men convicted of committing a series of sex crimes against vulnerable teenage boys is HIV postitive, it has emerged.
Anthony Marsh and Lee Davis used social networks such as Facebook and Bebo, as well as specialist gay websites, to befriend boys before committing what police describe as “vile, horrendous offences”.
They appeared in court last month where they pled guilty to a total of 55 offences committed throughout the country over a number of years.
A further 14 offences were denied and later dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service. They will be sentenced on December 2.
Marsh, 53,a salesman from Hatfield, Doncaster, who also used the names Tony Taylor and Tony Smith, pleaded guilty to 34 offences including possessing and distributing indecent images of children, and sexual activity with a child.
He was revealed to have the virus that causes Aids, but did not inform the boys he abused. His 20 victims identified so far by police are understood to have tested negative.
Lee Davis, 39, from Conisbrough, Doncaster, who also used the name James Parkin, had pleaded guilty to 20 offences including rape, sexual activity with a child, and taking indecent photographs of a child.
Both men were also jointly charged with conspiracy to commit sexual activity with children, and both admitted this offence at the earlier court hearing in September.
The offences to which they pleaded guilty date back to 2005 and involved teenage boys from South Yorkshire, Humberside, the north east, north west and the midlands, aged between 13 and 17.
South Yorkshire Police say most of the abused boys met the men willingly and agreed to sex – but that while the pair did not lie about their age, they knew the boys were below the age of consent.
Police said Davis filmed teenagers at his home or in his van and officers believe some of the footage shot by Marsh has been distributed by him over the web.
Detective Inspector Delphine Waring, who led the investigation codenamed Operation Klan on behalf of South Yorkshire Police, said: “Both were family men, both leading double lives.
“As well as all the victims of these appalling crimes, the families of both of these men are victims as well.
“Their families have been completely betrayed by the horrendous activity that both of these men have been undergoing.
“Their crimes are absolutely despicable. They’ve preyed on vulnerable young boys who have every right, in this day and age, to be able to experiment and use the internet.
“And especially young boys who are perhaps confused about their sexuality, it should be perhaps a safe environment for them to be able to experiment and explore online.
“However, both of these men – obviously vastly older than all of the child victims – have gained their trust, have preyed on that vulnerability and groomed them entirely for the purpose of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse.
“And they’ve actually gone on to meet the young boys in whatever setting that may have been and committed vile, horrendous offences against them.
“They searched various websites trawling for impressionable, young, vulnerable boys and having engaged in conversation then made arrangements to meet them.
“I very much hope this case serves as a warning to anyone who believes they can abuse young children for their own sexual gratification.
“The young boys who were the victims of their crimes will continue to receive the support of specialist agencies in order that they can come to terms with what happened to them and to build successful and happy lives.”

Two men have been charged with offences including rape relating to the sexual exploitation of children in Bristol.
Mohammed Dahir, 21, faces a total of three charges. Jusef Abdirizak, 19, faces one charge.
Both men appeared at Bristol Magistrates’ Court and were remanded in custody until 28 November when they will appear at Bristol Crown Court.
They are the seventh and eighth men to be charged as part of Operation Brooke, Avon and Somerset Police said.
Mr Dahir, of Easton, Bristol, has been charged with one count of rape of a girl aged between 13 and 15, one count of causing/inciting a child aged 13 to 17 to prostitution and one count of aiding/abetting rape of a girl under 13.
Mr Abdirizak, of Knowle, Bristol, has been charged with one count of rape of a girl aged between 13 and 15.
Operation Brooke is Avon and Somerset Police’s “ongoing investigating” into the sexual exploitation of children in Bristol.

That is why the Muslim Council of Britain’s (MCB) demanded produced recommendations in the ‘Towards Greater Understanding’ brochure, included the topics “collective worship, communal changing, swimming, halal meals and sex education,” but no surprises.
So in no particular order these are the ‘recommendations’ that the Islamist MCB makes towards ‘mutual understanding’:
The Dress Code
“Beards following the example of the Prophet Muhammad are chosen and are considered to be an adornment of a man’s face. Any decision by Muslim pupils to manifest their religion by growing a beard should be respected by their school.”
Another recent case occurred at the Nottingham Academy, whose dress code regarding jewellery ‘dictates pupils can only wear one plain pair of metal studs’. Muhammed Tariq ignored that and sent his six year old daughter to school wearing a ‘taweez’ – which apparently is a chain containing verses from the Qur’an. The teacher took away the religious locket for the rest of the day because she was swinging it around in class and that sent Mr Tariq on the warpath by pulling his daughter out of lessons for over a week after he slammed the teacher’s actions: “To have it taken off her for the entire day and be shouted at by her teacher like that is an insult to Islam.”
This resulted in Britain’s largest school making a U-turn on their uniform policy. Then Mr Tariq also demanded that his daughter be placed in a different class away from the teacher who banned her ‘sacred’ locket (notice the complete lack of ‘forgiveness’ or ‘empathy’ from Mr Tariq.) More diversity and cultural awareness training for the teachers will probably be in order! (Or to save time, the school should have read page 21 of the MCB’s Qur’an of Islamising British state schools.)
In politically correct Britain, Muslim pupils can often break the dress code, but contrast that to a female non-Muslim teacher was asked to wear a hijab in an Islamic school, despite already being ‘dressed modestly’, and was subsequently ‘forced out’ of her job for non-compliance.
The MCB’s expectation is that “School meals policies incorporate the requirements for the provision of halal meals.” However, halal differs from other religiously slaughtered meat, because it is ‘blessed’ before slaughter with an ideology that hates non-Muslims, that imposes itself on others and also funds Islamic terrorism.
The MCB states, “From the age of seven children are encouraged to pray and prayer becomes obligatory upon all Muslims at the age of puberty. Performing prayers involves adopting body postures whilst facing Makkah in Saudi Arabia… Zuhr prayerneeds to be accommodated and occurs every afternoon, which including the ritual wash, will take about twenty minutes.”
MCB certainly puts its cards on the table here with several demands, including prayer rooms, staff training, special treatment and washing facilities. (MCB recommends the “school builds or adapts a washing facility in the toilet areas where pupils can wash their feet.”) A blasé attitude towards integrating with the host nation’s culture, how this would impact the school, its staff and non-Muslim pupils. No mention either of a Muslim pupil losing two hours per week learning, just as long as Islam’s never-ending demands are met.
The MCB’s recommendations for the state education system equates to the removal of Christianity, and they take no prisoners when they state: “All of the prophets are afforded great respect and drawing pictures or role-playing them is equally inappropriate.” So no more ‘offensive’ Christmas Nativity plays, and images of Jesus Christ will have to be removed. Just to clarify, “In Islam ‘three dimensional figurative imagery of humans’ is regarded as unacceptable because of idolatress practices.”
MCB makes it clear that: “It is not permissible for Muslims to actively participate in non-Islamic acts of worship” such as school assembly. Okay, I can see the point here because I would not agree to a vice-versa scenario, however the MCB takes it a step further by attempting a religious ‘power-grab’: “A determination is a legal decision made by the Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) to lift the statutory requirement of worship to be ‘wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’. A school cannot determine not to have an act of collective worship or replace it with non-religious assemblies. Determinations are usually sought for schools where a significant number of pupils or the majority of pupils are affiliated to faiths other than Christianity.”
Ramadan and Eid
Not content with prayers every day, the MCB wants official recognition of Ramadan, and ‘requests’ ‘no swimming lessons, detention or sex education’ during the holy month. Exams should also be avoided ‘if possible’ and states after school functions and parent evenings are ‘difficult in Ramadan’. Also, “schools should allow at least one day off for each of the Eid celebrations as obligatory religious observance.”
No surprises that the ‘religion of peace’ and sex education will collide. The MCB reiterates ‘marriage’ is the only basis for ‘sexual relations’ in Islam, so that rules out any mention of ‘girlfriend/boyfriend and homosexual relationships’. An attempt to grab the ‘moral high ground’ is made, but the MCB neglects to mention temporary marriages called ‘Nikah mut’ah’, which is Islam’s equivalent of relationships and can even be legalised prostitution. It is also ironic that MCB’s guide contains several mentions of the made-up term ‘Islamophobia’ but have no hesitation in practicing homophobia (or countless other genuine phobia’s).
“Images and videos which would be considered sexually explicit are inappropriate. Muslim parents consider such demonstrations as well as distribution of contraceptive pills and condoms to young people to be completely inappropriate and encouraging morally, unacceptable behaviour.”
The Qur’an commands Muslims to emulate their prophet’s behaviour in every particular. In other words, Muhammad had sex with a nine year-old girl and kept sex slaves, and also said among many things, that it was ok for his holy warriors to “rape captured women and not to worry about coitus interruptus” while doing so. Sexual abuse and homophobia have grounding within the core of Islam itself and its associated culture, so it seems Western society has a different opinion on what constitutes ‘unacceptable behaviour’!
No embracing other European languages which could be useful, just a call that: “All Muslim children learn to read the Qur’an in Arabic, and are required to perform their prayers in this language. Offering Arabic would provide Muslims with wider linguistic skills and offers greater access to their religious and cultural heritage, thus giving them a stronger sense of self-esteem and achievement.”
The Quranic texts are even more intolerant and violent in Arabic. It is bad enough that children are indoctrinated anyway, but it is also absurd because Arabic has no value in Western societies, other than in self-segregated Muslim enclaves.
Music: “Music that may include the use of obscene and blasphemous language, encourage immoral behaviour (particularly mixed-gender groups), arouse lustful feelings, encourage the consumption of intoxicants and drugs or contain un-Islamic lyrics would be considered objectionable.” No instruments are allowed so I presume ‘human beat boxing’ is banned as well?
Gambling: No gambling is reasonable, but apart from this, it does not happen anyway! However just for clarification: “Schools should not encourage Muslim pupils to buy or sell raffle tickets.”
Extra training: Obviously there is much to take on board, so not content with politically correct ‘diversity’ and ‘cultural awareness’ training, the MCB makes further recommendations:
“Where the school believes that domestic conflict is causing problems for a Muslim pupil, the involvement of a Muslim member of staff may often enhance the possibility and process of finding a satisfactory solution. Schools should endeavour to ensure that their teaching and support staff have an appropriate representation from the Muslim community and should seek their involvement and participation in decision-making at a management and leadership level. It is valuable for mainstream schools to develop a good understanding and working relationship with their local mosques” … “Schools should endeavour to buy relevant and authentic books on the Islamic heritage and civilisation for the school library and for class use.”
If that does not drum home the message of ‘entitlement’ and ‘segregation from non-Muslims’, then any staff still struggling to grasp these concepts can attended MCB training courses:
“Some non-Muslim teachers may find certain Muslim names difficult to pronounce. Nevertheless, care should be taken to pronounce names as accurately as possible. In some cases shortening the name can change the meaning and can cause offence. For example, the name Abdullah means ‘servant of Allah’, whereas if shortened to ‘Abdul’ it means ‘servant’ or ‘slave’.”
Special Treatment Required
“Schools should consider the appropriateness of school balls/discos, fashion shows that might inadvertently exclude Muslim pupils and parents. Alcohol is prohibited within Islam, and its presence may make it uncomfortable for some pupils and their parents.”
“Some sports involve physical contact, so most Muslim parents find mixed-gender groups objectionable.” Gender segregation is desirable wherever possible. A perfect example of this happened in Nottingham in 2010, when a Muslim parent told teachers at William Booth Primary School (William Booth was the founder of the Salvation Army), that it was against his Muslim beliefs for his 5 year-old daughter to swim in mixed gender groups and with male staff present.
“Islam forbids nakedness in front of others or being among others who are naked.” Therefore a request to install individual showers.
The Takeover Is Lunacy
Faith is usually personal to the individual in Britain; however our culture is based upon our Judeo-Christian heritage. Many schools reflect this, but the hardline MCB is challenging the very foundations of who we are and who our future generations will become.
Demands are being made exponentially already, and if all of the MCB requests were accepted it would only lead to yet more demands and an unworkable two-tier system. The MCB has highlighted the state school system as a beachhead to Islamise British society and must be stopped immediately.
Other Muslim organisations are operating stealth jihad methods, infiltrating positions of power and influence. Combined with changing demographics, for example, in Birmingham, England’s second city, only one third of children is white with 44% being Asian, and political correctness by our spineless authorities, is a potent mix.
The writing is on the wall unless the government can tame Islam quickly! First thing is tell the Islamist MCB to stop interfering with schoolchildren’s education!
Teen was one of five underage girls abused by child sex ring, court hears
Girl claims she was abused at parties and in a playground near her home
Two 14-year-old boys among eight defendants on trial in London
by, Lucy Crossley | The Daily Mail Online – UK
A 13-year-old girl was sold for sex at £20 a time by the teenage boss of a child sex ring, a court has heard.
It was alleged that the girl, who has learning difficulties, was one of five underage girls abused by the gang, headed by 18-year-old Zdeno Mirga.
She was also sexually abused by groups of boys at parties and at a playground in a park near her home in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, jurors at the Old Bailey heard.
The court heard that the girl revealed the abuse to her social worker after being taken into care in December last year, and a police investigation led to the identification of another four victims, including the girl’s 14-year-old sister.
Two 14-year-old boys are among the eight defendants, aged between 14 and 32, who are standing trial on an indictment containing 57 counts, including rape, sexual assault, causing or inciting child prostitution, assault by penetration, sexual activity with a child and causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
All of the accused are of Czech, Slovak and Kurdish origin.
The two sisters are from a Czech and Slovak family while the other three victims are English.
Opening the case, prosecutor Angela Rafferty, said: ‘Between April 2012 and December 2012 in Peterborough all these defendants engaged in sexual abuse of teenage girls.
‘Some of them were more heavily involved than others. Some organised and controlled the sexual activity. Some took a spur of the moment decision to become involved.’
Miss Rafferty warned jurors: ‘You will be hearing some very graphic descriptions of sexual matters.’
The court was told that all of the victims were aged between 12 and 14 when the alleged abuse took place, and that Mirga, known as Skinny, was said to be at the centre of the case.
Miss Rafferty said: ‘It is the prosecution’s case that Zdeno Mirga is a forceful young man and can at times appear very charismatic and controlling.’
The main 13 year-old victim, who has learning difficulties, claims he forced her to have sex with other boys and men.
‘He wanted to receive money from the other males for her sexual services,’ said Miss Rafferty.
The court heard, a man aged around 50 paid Mirga £20 so the girl would perform a sex act on him.
‘She refused but was effectively forced to do it,’ Miss Rafferty added.
It was alos alleged that Mirga told the girl that he wanted money for ‘weed and vodka’.
He is standing trial alongside his brother Dusan Mirga, 20, of Peterborough, David Ziga, 19, of Sheffield, Hassan Abdulla, 32, from, Peterborough, as well as two 14 year-old boys and two 17 year-old boys who cannot be identified because of their ages.

A 14-year-old girl from a Muslim family became pregnant after being taken to Pakistan by her father and forced to marry a man ten years older than her in “harrowing” circumstances, a High Court judge has said.
Mr Justice Holman ruled the girl would have to initiate proceedings herself to have the marriage nullified, despite a request from local authority officials who wanted a “declaration of non-recognition” of the marriage.
Her parents had emigrated from Pakistan to England and the girl’s father became a UK citizen more than 30 years ago, he said.
The teenager, who was born in Britain, was subjected to violence and a gun was produced.
The marriage was consummated following further “threats” two weeks after the ceremony and the girl became pregnant, he added.
She later returned to England and gave birth. A local authority then started proceedings in relation to the girl and her infant.
Detail has emerged in a written ruling following a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in Birmingham.
“The girl has given an account of the circumstances surrounding that marriage which are, frankly, harrowing,” the judge said.
“On her account … this was a grave example of a marriage which was forced under considerable duress, involving at one stage the production of a gun and physical violence upon her.”
He added: “The marriage was consummated about two weeks later after further threats to her if she did not permit her husband, who was then aged about 24, to have sexual intercourse with her. As a result, while still aged 14, she became pregnant.”
The girl, who is now 17, was not identified.

In 2007 the ‘Muslim Council of Britain’ (MCB) was empowered to produce a glossy 72-page brochure entitled ‘Towards Greater Understanding; Meeting the needs of Muslim pupils in state schools’. However this ‘guidance’ was really a set of demands to accommodate Islam within the state education system.
Through political correctness, Islam has unfortunately been successful in elbowing its way into British society. The entitlement has grown and is highlighted in this uninspiring MCB statement:
“Islam and Muslims are part of the mosaic that comprises modern Britain, 50% of the Muslim population being British born… The faith commitments encompass all aspects of everyday life and conduct, including daily life in school. It is important therefore, that educators and schools have good understanding of how they can respond positively to meeting the needs of Muslim pupils.”
The table has been fully turned by the stealth jihadists of the MCB because Islam does not affect non-Muslims’ lives in any way, shape or form, unless of course we pander to it. The MCB’s objective is a deliberate attempt at undermining our secular society based on Judeo-Christian values by differentiating Islam and calling for special status on an exponential scale.
Throwaway statements such as “Islam holds knowledge and learning as sacred and, therefore, central to the development of any civilisation”, are aplenty and just do not mesh with reality. In the Muslim world there has been a total lack of progression, scientific discoveries and almost continuous violence and war since the illiterate, caravan robbing Prophet Muhammad was told to read by Angel Gabriel in mountain cave near Mecca!
The MCB predictably makes a case for Islam’s ‘Golden Era’, where mostly existing concepts and ideas from Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian and Chinese civilisations were used.
Above and beyond this, Islam’s main ‘contributions’ to the world have seen an almost relentless 1,400 years of invading Africa, Europe, Persia and Asia, spreading Islam by the sword, enslavement and destroying civilisations and cultures. Approximately 270 million people were killed in the process. Now Qur’an inspired Islamic terrorism is a continual threat towards global peace.
European civilisation was in the Dark Ages, but Christianity was reformed, and society progressed into the Age of Enlightenment. Separation between Church and State was a key element because scientific discoveries were allowed to be made, whereas Islamic societies have never done this. Even Muslim countries’ main source of revenue, oil, is reliant on Western innovation and technology. Oil just happens to be under their soil/sand.
MCB neglects to mention any of these truths or even when Muslims emigrate to ‘better themselves’, children from Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Turkish and Somali backgrounds still under-perform on a supposed ‘level playing field’. Muslim adults fare no better becauseapproximately 76% of Muslim women and 53% of Muslim men are economically inactive in Britain.
However MCB continue to rejoice unabated in nonsensical statements, such as: “Today, Muslims form a vibrant community that forms an integral part of British society.”
Islam on the Syllabus
Our successive governments have allowed uncontrolled mass immigration and political correctness to flourish, which will now hold our society back if they allow Islam into our school classrooms. However the MCB’s message is clear, more Islam is required on the syllabus for both Muslim and non-Muslim pupils alike, as their manifesto states:
“There are many schools with a significant or a high composition of Muslim pupils, in which the syllabus time allocation does not take adequate account of or reflect their religious background, resulting in a relatively small proportion of study time in Religious Education being devoted to the study of Islam.”
“99% of Pakistani and Bangladeshi pupils said they were Muslim and the vast majority (99%) within these two groups said that religion was fairly or very important to them, compared to 34% pupils of white British background.”
“It is also important, in schools where there are no Muslims, for all pupils to learn about Islam.”
This obviously begs the question of why move to or stay in a non-Muslim country if this is how you feel. Islam is of no relevance to non-Muslims, so why should it be accommodated? Whether an individual likes it or not, multiculturalism has been forced upon us Brits, and one thing that annoys the natives is that no one was ever asked if they wanted this to happen. However, Islam has been given a beachhead it could never have dreamed of otherwise, and now it is taking full advantage. Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists, etc., all blend into the state education system unnoticed, and they certainly have not produced any brochures packed with demands.
Predictably ‘Islamophobia’ is also thrown into the equation by the MCB, with their definition being: “An extreme and abnormal fear of and/or aversion to Islam in general and Muslims in particular.” So there you have it in a nutshell. Islamise the education system, and blame the kuffar for raising genuine concerns!
Should non-Muslims learn about Islam? To be fair I can appreciate the argument of learning about different faiths and religions, however only if they are taught in a balanced and factual way. I doubt this will happen, and I expect a revised history of Islam with all the Qur’an inspired violence, intolerance, hatred, prejudice and supremacist teachings removed. It will undoubtedly be total propaganda aimed at schoolchildren as has been in the case with textbooks in US schools. My suspicions are enforced by the Education Secretary saying it would be “fantastic” if a rich benefactor would support sending out copies of the Islamic holy text to schools.
Even a Muslim School Does Not Work
Soeren Kern explains: ”In addition to the strict dress code, pupils at the school have been banned from singing songs, playing musical instruments, or reading fairy tales, activities deemed to be ‘un-Islamic,’ according to non-Muslim staff members at the school. When teaching children the alphabet, staff was prohibited from associating the letter ‘P’ with the word ‘pig.’ Female staff was banned from wearing jewellery and are instructed to avoid shaking hands with male teachers to prevent ‘insult.’
“The revelations about the un-British goings-on at the Al-Madinah School — the working conditions at the school have been compared to ‘being in Pakistan’ — have fuelled outrage over what some are callingunderhanded attempts to establish a parallel Islamic education system in Britain.”
Are we living in Pakistan or another Muslim country? Alas, this is England in 2013.
Thanks to multiculturalism and political correctness, rampant gender discrimination flourished because schools like Al-Madinah are run by Islamic hardliners and are not regulated properly. The school was marked ‘inadequate’ in every category possible in an OFSTED audit and slammed as being ‘dysfunctional’.Out of thousands of schools in Britain, no expert can recall ever seeing such diabolical results.
The State Education System Is in a State!
So that is the current situation for the British State education of 5-16 year-olds, I’m afraid to report.
A full scale assault on Islamising secular education and undermining Judeo-Christian values within state schools, and even when Muslims have their own Islamic school, it is a hotbed of discrimination.
This situation is self-inflicted by British Governments for allowing the Muslim population to grow from virtually 0% after WW2, to where we now have approximately 10% of schoolchildren being Muslim. This has ensured Britain’s Islamic futureas the Muslim population will continue to grow and consequently, demands will increase further.
My reply to the Muslim Council of Britain would be as follows: Simply rip up their glossy 72-page brochure and tell Muslims to “integrate into our secular society, or go and live in a Muslim country!”
Call me an ‘Islamophobe’ if you want. I’m past caring!
The attack left Francesco Hounye with horrific injuries
5 Muslim men smash a bottle in the face of an American student and then attack
by, Kay Atwal – Chief Reporter | The East London Advertiser
Tower Hamlets police believe the man from Florida was targeted simply because he was “obviously not local”.
The detailed footage clearly shows five
Asian [Muslim] men setting upon Francesco Hounye, 22, who had only arrived in the UK three days earlier.
They smashed a bottle into his face and then chased after him to continue their assault, repeatedly kicking and punching him.
The attack happened in the early hours of June 17 in Commercial Road, Whitechapel about 15 metres east from the junction with New Road.
Detectives have released CCTV footage of a violent bottle attack on an American student, by a gang of five men.
The victim had been out for the night in the Brick Lane area with his 23-year-old friend, who he was staying with while in the UK.
CCTV footage shows them being followed by a number of
Asian [Muslim] men as they walked back to the friend’s home in Shadwell and a confrontation beginning.
It is not clear what was said but the exchange became heated and the suspects threatening and aggressive. One of the suspects grabbed a bottle the victim was drinking from and smashed it against his face.
The group pursued the victim as he ran across the road to escape. They chased after him and continued to beat him before making off.
The victim was taken to The Royal London Hospital with deep slash wounds to his head and around his right ear. He needed 23 stitches to his face and more stitches internally. He has suffered permanent scarring and a chipped tooth.
Despite detailed enquiries, the suspects have yet to be identified.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Ben Mott, said: “We believe the suspects picked a fight with the victim as he was obviously not from the local area and they took exception to the fact that he was a bit different. The victim has an Italian accent, his own style of dress and mannerisms and, when challenged by the
Asian [Muslim] males, answered them back.
“They retaliated by grabbing the bottle and launching a vicious attack that has left him scarred for life. He had come to the UK to enhance his studies and has been left so shocked and horrified by what happened that he feels unsafe and is unsure if he wants to stay here.
“The CCTV footage is exceptionally clear and I believe the suspects to be local. I would ask people to please look closely at the faces of the attackers and help us identify them. I am positive someone would know who they are from looking at the footage.”
Francesco said in a statement to police: “As a result of this incident I am now scared to go out on my own in London. I am a visitor to the UK and was considering continuing my studies here but this incident has made me think twice.
“I feel very emotional about the whole situation. I also now face the rest of my life with the permanent scarring that will be left on my face as a result of this attack. Every time I look in the mirror from now on I will be reminded of this incident.”
The suspects are described as
Asian [Muslim] and aged in their late teens to early 20s. They are possibly Bengali.
The man who used the bottle was wearing a red and white striped short-sleeved top with black trousers, white trainers and a large watch.
Anyone who can help is asked to contact Tower Hamlets CID on 020 7275 4546 or to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you want to remain anonymous.
Increasing numbers of British inmates are being bullied into converting to Islam while in jail.
by, Mark White, Home Affairs Correspondent | Sky News
The Prison Officers Association says it is symptomatic of the growing power and influence of Muslim gangs in prison.
However, there are also concerns that some of those converts could be radicalised by more extremist elements in prison.
Sky News spoke to one young woman who said her brother was being bullied by members of a Muslim gang, who were trying to force him into converting to Islam.
The woman did not want to be identified for fear of reprisals against her brother, who is serving a sentence in excess of 10 years in a high security prison in England.
She said: “He just looks like a broken man … he’s tearful on visits. I’m just really scared for him.”
She also claimed the bullying had taken a more violent turn: “He’s been physically assaulted. He’s had black eyes.
“In the showers, he got threatened with a knife. He’s not going to back down. He’s not going to convert for anyone.”
She added: “He just spends his time in hiding in his cell. He’s got at least another five years to serve. I don’t know how much longer he can hold out.”
Official sources acknowledge forced conversions are a problem in the country’s prisons.
How large the problem is remains unclear, as inmates are often afraid to report such intimidation for fear of reprisals.
Joe Chapman, a former prison officer who now acts as a prison law consultant, believes the problem is on the increase.
“I think it could be a huge problem. Previously I’d probably only worked in about a dozen or so prisons as an officer,” Mr Chapman said.
“But this job takes me to 40 or 50 over the year, throughout the country. It’s become obvious to me that it’s a growing problem.
“About half a dozen of my clients have directly reported problems with being forced to convert … those that weren’t Muslim when they came in and those that were and have been forced to look at more radical ideas about their faith.”
It is the potential route to extremism that will be of most concern to the authorities.
There is no automatic pathway but Jihadist groups do focus on the vulnerable – and new converts in the prison environment offer them a captive audience.
Former Home Secretary Lord Reid told Sky News: “When they arrive in prison, inmates often feel isolated, lacking in identity.
“They don’t have family groups and kinships around them. On top of that, very often there’s a need for protection, a feeling that you’ve arrived in prison, you’re on your own but there are people who appear like you, who give you a set of beliefs but also the protection of being in a gang.
“It is a very, very fertile ground for recruitment and proselytization and radicalisation in prison.”
There are currently around 11,200 Muslims in prison in England and Wales.
That figure is about 13% of the total prison population and is far higher than in the wider community, where Muslims make up less than 5% of the population.
A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “Faith can have a very positive influence on prisoners and can play an important role in rehabilitation, but it must never be misused as a way of coercing vulnerable prisoners into criminal behaviour.
‘We are never complacent about bullying in prisons and take a zero tolerance approach to tackling victimisation of any kind.”
Blackmail: Married physics teacher Zahid Akram, 37, posed as a boy online and persuaded schoolgirls and young women to send him explicit pictures
- Zahid Akram ‘may have contacted hundreds of victims online’
- Father-of-two, 37, facing jail after admitting blackmail offences
- He created 12 fake profiles online to persuade girls to hand over pictures
- Teacher targeted young victims across Britain
- Police say Akram’s vile demands were about ‘empowerment rather than sexual gratification’
by, ROB COOPER | Daily Mail Online – UK
A married physics teacher blackmailed schoolgirls and young women into sending him sexually explicit photos of themselves, a court heard.
Father-of-two Zahid Akram, 37, would persuade his victims to send him pictures in their underwear and then threaten to forward them on to their family if they did not send more.
Detectives believe Akram may have contacted hundreds of youngsters on Badoo while posing as a schoolboy.
The teacher was warned he faces a long spell behind bars by a judge at Exeter Crown Court after he admitted four charges of blackmail and one of causing or inciting a child aged 13-17 to prostitution or pornography.
Police believe there are victims in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and in England – but none south of Bristol because Akram was employed as a science teacher at Woodroffe School in Lyme Regis, Dorset.
Officers said his demands were about ‘empowerment rather than sexual gratification’. Akram had a dozen different profiles on Badoo he used to coerce his victims into handing over pictures.
Judge Francis Gilbert QC refused Akram, of Redditch, Worcestershire, bail and said: ‘He knew perfectly well what he was doing. What he was doing was extremely nasty.
‘He persuaded a number of young girls to take off their clothes and show themselves wearing their underwear, bra and knickers.’
The judge said in one case he told a schoolgirl he knew the Christian names of her parents and would show them the pictures unless she sent more sexualised images.
‘It put appalling pressure on her. It is a vile offence,’ the judge said. ‘He is an intelligent man, a teacher, he must have known what he was doing. It was appalling behaviour.’
Detective Constable Steve Harris, of Devon and Cornwall Police who investigated the case, said Akram blackmailed vulnerable girls and young women aged between 13 and 30.
‘I think there are hundreds of victims he has contacted. They are aged between 13 and 30 and they live all other the UK, in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and from Bristol upwards,’ he said.
‘He approached them online using Badoo and other social networking sites. He had at least twelve profiles, mostly young males but one was as a woman.
‘He was getting them to take a picture of themselves, with say no top on. Once he got that he then asked them to so other things that they did not want to do. It was an increase in sexualisation.
‘If they refused he threatened to show the pictures to friends and family or post them online. In some cases he demanded money from them – £20 or £40 to use to top up his phone. It wasn’t a vast amount of money but these were vulnerable victims.
‘He was blackmailing these women. His demands were about empowerment rather than sexual gratification. He had very little control over his life at work or at home.
‘He also had £40,000 debts and he was not very good with money. He needed some way of taking control and this is what he ended up doing.
‘He has no previous convictions. The matter came to us because one of the victims contacted police. She was being blackmailed and bravely came forward.
‘We traced him and seized his computer equipment and realised there were a lot of people to trace all around the country.
‘I believe there are hundreds more victims out there. We have not been able to trace many of them but they can contact us even now.’
The blackmail and incitement started in October 2009 and continued until January 2012.
Akram will be sentenced at Exeter Crown Court on November 14.
The judge warned him that he faces a prison sentence measured in ‘years not months’.

Religious leaders appeared willing to agree to perform underage marriages at some mosques across the UK, an ITV Exposure investigation discovered.
Two undercover reporters called 56 mosques to ask whether they would perform the marriage of a 14-year-old girl.
Two-thirds of those contacted refused to perform the marriage but 18 of the respondents spoken to agreed.
Abdul Kashem, a trustee of the Al Quba Mosque and Shahporan Islamic centre, in Manchester, condemned underage marriage.
His comments came after an ITV Exposure programme spoke to a man at the mosque claiming to be the Imam who said he would be willing to perform an Islamic marriage for a 14-year-old girl.
However Mr Kashem said the name mentioned in the report “doesn’t belong to us”.
He added: “It’s an open office. It’s a mosque. It’s not something private and locked up. During the praying hours there are hundreds of people that come here. I don’t know how old this guy is and it could be age differences and maybe making fun out of it.”
British Muslim clerics are willing to carry out sharia marriages involving child brides as young as 12, an investigation has found.
Two imams said they would be prepared to officiate at the wedding of an underage girl to a man in his twenties, despite fears the pair would later have sex.
The revelations have led the Home Office to confirm that such ceremonies will be examined in the Government’s forthcoming Bill to outlaw forced marriages.
More than 1,000 of the 8,000 forced marriages of Britons each year are believed to involve girls of 15 or under, with one case last year allegedly involving a girl of five.
The clerics were approached by man posing as the father of a 12-year-old who wanted her to marry to prevent her being tempted into a decadent Western lifestyle.
Imam Mohammed Kassamali, of the Husaini Islamic Centre in Peterborough, stressed the need for secrecy with such a ceremony.
He allegedly said: ‘If it (the marriage) was not possible, I would have told you straight away… I would love the girl to go to her husband’s houses (sic) as soon as possible, the younger the better.
‘Under sharia (Islamic law) there is no problem. It is said she should see her first sign of puberty at the house of her husband.
‘The problem is that we cannot explain such things (the marriage) if the girl went tomorrow (to the authorities).
‘The other thing is the underage thing and if tomorrow the girl is, let’s say coerced or forced into this, and she goes and reports it to the police then she will put all of us into the problems.’
He also urged the father to encourage the newlyweds to ‘delay the togetherness’, meaning postpone having sex.
Abdul Haque, a retired imam who still officiates at weddings at Shoreditch mosque, East London, reportedly agreed to carry out the ceremony after evening prayers on Wednesday.
‘Tell people it is an engagement but it will be a marriage,’ he told an undercover Sunday Times reporter.
In this video.. 2 Imams agrees to perform the underage marriage of a 12-year-old little girl in the UK.
‘In Islam, once the girl reaches puberty the father has the right, the parents have the right, but under the laws of this country if the girl complains and says her marriage has been arranged and she wasn’t of marriageable age, then the person who performed the marriage will be jailed as well as the mother and father.’
He explained how the Prophet Muhammad had married a seven-year-old girl before adding: ‘We are his followers, and that is what you have to explain (to your daughter).’
It is not illegal for clerics to perform Islamic marriages, even when one or both of those marrying are under 16.
Such marriages are not recognised in British law, so civil formalities can take place only if both are over 16.
Islamic law allows a couple to have sex after marriage but, as the legal age of consent is 16, a husband can be prosecuted for rape if he has sex with an underage girl.
The Forced Marriage Unit, set up in 2005, dealt with 1,468 cases last year with 205 involving children under the age of 15.
Farooq Murad, of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: ‘We are strongly opposed to it on the basis that it is illegal under the law of the land where we are living and even under sharia it is highly debatable.’
After being confronted, Kassamali said he would not have performed the marriage without the girl’s consent and would have sought legal advice. Haque declined to comment.
The Home Office said: ‘Child marriage is totally unacceptable and illegal. Perceived cultural sensitivities and political correctness cannot and will not get in the way of preventing and uncovering.

Bristol, England: TWO men have appeared in court charged with raping underage girls who were under the care of social workers.
Bristol Magistrates’ Court was told the house where the girls were living, which cannot be named for legal reasons, effectively became a brothel.
The victims were placed in the home, which the court heard was supported housing, by social workers.
The men, one of whom is an asylum seeker who has been given the right to remain in the country by the Home Office, are accused of child sexual exploitation, which includes sexual activity at the home, as well as at the Premier Inn at St James Barton roundabout.
One of them is also charged with paying a child for sexual services.
Said Zakaria, 21, also known as Target, of Seymour Road, Easton, is charged with sexual activity with a 13-year-old girl and rape of a girl aged 14 at the Premier Inn and the home.
Gama Mohammed, 32, also known as G, of Gordon Road, Whitehall, whom the court heard was an asylum seeker, spoke through an interpreter to confirm his name, age and address.
He is charged with rape at the same home and paying for the sexual services of a child at the Premier Inn.
They both denied all the charges at Bristol Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
Appearing separately, the two Somali men were remanded in custody. They are due to appear at Bristol Crown Court on October 10.
The court heard that the defendants had been arrested as part of Operation Brooke – an investigation working with child exploitation teams.
Before the hearing, DCI Carolyn Belafonte, of Avon and Somerset Police, said: “Operation Brooke is a dynamic investigation; we’re working closely with the Barnardo’s child sexual exploitation team and other partner agencies to follow up every line of enquiry and, most importantly, ensure that victims are well supported.
“We would very much like to hear from anyone who believes they may have been a victim of similar sexual exploitation offences. You can call us on 101.
“We understand that reporting something to the police can be a bit daunting so if you think you are or have been a victim, and don’t want to talk to us right now, please don’t hesitate – talk to a parent or teacher or someone else you can trust.
“And if you do come straight through to us, I promise we’ll listen, support you and take what you have to say absolutely seriously.”
