Islamic State Fraudsters Gaoled at Old Bailey.

"The Messenger & those who believe with him, strive hard & fight with their wealth & lives in Allah's Cause." So Allah the primitive moon god tells his those unfortunate enough to believe in him, in verse 9:88 of the most illiterate book ever written, the Koran.

At the risk of sounding repetative, for those of you who read the last post but one, funding terror is considered on a par with actually going out & killing innocent people. This is why we see so many Muslims in the courts accused of funnding groups such as ISIS. Another example of this is the gang gaoled at the Old Baiey today, as reported by MailOnline (hat-tip to Ivan Humble @NewDayStarts):

Millions of pounds could be in hands of ISIS in Syria after thousands of victims were targeted by Bank of Terror fraud gang

  • Gang posed as police officers and targeted people sometimes over 90
  • Nine men jailed for their part in the conspiracy at the Old Bailey, London
  • Victims with average age of 83 were conned into transferring life savings
  • Money was sent to Syria, as well frittered on designer clothes and holidays
  • Lawyers for one of the gang handed letter from Corbyn to judge in the case
  • Another member was a failed X Factor singer who used cash for new album

Millions of pounds may have been funneled to ISIS after money defrauded from potentially thousands of victims could not be traced by authorities.

Eleven men were part of the 'bank of terror' fraud in which conmen phoned elderly victims and tricked them into handing over their life savings by pretending to be police officers.

At the Old Bailey nine men were jailed for their part in the conspiracy and two of the gang have already been sent to prison.

Some of the pensioners were in their nineties when they had their savings stolen, and the average age of those targeted was 83.

They posed as police officers to dupe elderly victims into handing over their money, which was then laundered and frittered away on foreign holidays and designer clothes.

The investigation by officers from the National Terrorism Financial Investigation Unit uncovered 16 phone lines used to make 6,000 calls to around 4,000 different phone numbers.

One victim, a 94-year-old man from north-west London, lost £130,000, while another victim lost £135,000.

Jeremy Corbyn wrote a letter on behalf of Mohamed Dahir, asking for him to be granted bail when he was first charged - Dahir tried to use it so he could get home for Christmas - but it was rejected by the judge.

X Factor reject Nathan Fagan-Gayle, 29 laundered £20,000 in a scam so he could record a new album and buy some new outfits.

Gang members phoned their victims pretending to be investigating a fraud at their bank and told them they needed to transfer their money for 'safekeeping'.

They persuaded one elderly victim who had cancer to miss a doctor's appointment to withdraw cash for them.

The men, described by police as 'cruel, callous and calculating' committed fraud on an 'industrial' level, the Old Bailey heard.

Describing the impact on the victims, Judge Anujar Dhir told the court: 'Some were in their 90s and some passed away before the trial took place.'

She said the impact on those targeted was 'catastrophic - some lost their life savings'.

Mohammed Youssfi, 38, of West Brompton, was given 20 months in prison for money laundering and fraud after he pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing.

Mohammed Abokar, 28, of Islington, was sentenced to 18 months for money laundering.

The gang, who were convicted of either conspiracy to commit fraud or money laundering offences, also included Fahim Islam, 21, of Stepney, Achmed Ahmed, 23, of Holloway, Anrul Islam, 24, of Dagenham, Sakaria Aden, 22, of

Stoke Newington, Yasser Abukar, 24, of Holloway, and Warsame Sheik, 30, of White City.

Eight of the defendants were remanded in custody and the sentencing will continue at 10am on Wednesday May 4.

Warsame Sheik was bailed and he will be sentenced separately on May 27.

Outlining the case at the beginning of sentencing, prosecutor Kevin Dent said £576,000 was stolen from 18 identified victims, and another £69,000 was arranged to be obtained.

But he said it is believed there are many other unidentified victims who were conned out of a further £328,000 at least.

He told the court: 'It is clear from those figures that this was a large-scale, sophisticated conspiracy that operated on victims in a nationwide scale.

'There was a method of operating, of conning the invariably elderly and vulnerable victims who were telephoned to their home addresses.

'The callers, who were part of the fraud, would pretend to be either from banks or to be law enforcement officers - police officers.'

He said the con artists would claim there had been suspicious activity on the victims' bank accounts and trick them into transferring money into other accounts.

The method then changed and from December 2014 victims were conned into taking out 'large sums of money' from their banks accounts and handing the cash over to the gang.

He said: 'Those sums of cash would be brought back to their home addresses and couriers who were part of the conspiracy would travel down to parts of the country to collect the cash from the victims.'

The victims, some of whom have since died, were conned into making multiple trips to banks to hand over up to £130,000 in cash and cheques.

Believing they were helping the police, victims were persuaded to lie to those around them about the money, the Old Bailey heard.

A number of the elderly victims attended court and sat in the public gallery to hear the fate of the men who had stolen their money.

The court heard that many of the victims have not been able to get any of their money back, while others have only recovered a small sum.

Because the fraudsters coached them in precisely what to say to banks to withdraw money without attracting suspicion, many have struggled to get their banks to refund them, the court heard.

Mr Dent said: 'The victims had to deceive their own banks and to deceive their own families about what happened.'

He added: 'We say this was a fraud that directly targets the elderly and vulnerable and plays on their insecurities, sometimes their isolation, their sense of decency.

'And that, probably in no small measure, because of their age and vulnerability, the fraudsters had control of the victims and were adept at keeping control of the victims - keeping them isolated, making sure that their own partners, husbands and wives, were not informed about what was going on, their children were not informed about what was going on.'

The victims, the oldest of whom was 94, were from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Bedfordshire, London and Kent.

Some died without ever seeing justice, the court heard.

One elderly man lost £113,000, while a woman was tricked out of £130,000, the court heard.

Former X Factor contestant Nathan Fagan-Gayle, 29, was convicted of laundering £20,000 from 73-year-old Elizabeth Curtis, who was duped into handing it over by a fake police officer in May 2014.

Breaking down in tears during a taped interview, Miss Curtis said: 'I was absolutely stunned and shocked and could not believe I had been so stupid and naive as to be taken in.'

In all, Miss Curtis was persuaded to transfer around £130,000 to different accounts.

The court heard that singer-songwriter Fagan-Gayle, from Tower Hamlets, east London, went on a shopping spree and used some of the cash to hire a car in the United States.

In a separate trial last year, Mohamed Dahir, 23, Shakaria Aden, 22, and Yasser Abukar, 24, all from north London, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud between May 2014 and May 2015.

Following the convictions, it emerged that Jeremy Corbyn, in his role as Islington North MP, had sent a letter in support of Dahir's original successful bail application last May.

In court Adam Westenholme, representing Dahir, said he had been working as a driver and had not known the full extent of the fraud.

He added that Dahir is involved in his local Somalian community, and has got a BTech in electronic engineering.

'It's a mark on his family, a mark that will be with him for the rest of his life.

'He's the eldest of seven children, it gives him great shame and he will face the full responsibility of his actions.

'He simply states that he is ashamed of his actions and so ashamed of the unfortunate effect it's had on these victims.'

Other defendants pleaded guilty to their part in the fraud - either as conspirators or money

They are: Fahim Islam, 21, of east London; Ahmed Ahmed, 23, of north London; Makhzhumi Abukar, 23, from north London; Anrul Islam, 24, from Dagenham; and Warsame Sheik, 30, from Harrow.

The juries were not told that the con was uncovered by the Met's Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) after a separate terror probe found suspicious payments into a bank account of someone who is now in Syria.

Speaking after the earlier convictions in December last year, Commander Richard Walton, head of SO15, said: 'This was a scam on a huge national scale detected by specialist financial investigators who have stopped the targeting of even more victims.

'We uncovered this fraud after a separate terrorist investigation found suspicious payments into a bank account of an individual who is now believed to have travelled to Syria.'

Detectives investigating terrorist activity believe these kind of scams are part of a network of criminals siphoning cash to fund terrorism and travel to war-torn Syria to fight with ISIS.

Commander Haydon said: 'Without a doubt courier fraud is being used to fund terrorism.

'Groups not just in the UK but overseas are using courier fraud, robbery, credit card fraud, drug dealing, oil, business fraud, bank of trust - it all contributes to the funding of terrorism, it's all part of it.

'But we can't be sure that in this case it has being used for terrorist activities, we couldn't prove that link.

'If we could then the charges would be the more serious charges of terrorism, rather than fraud.

'I have to be realistic, I can only put before the court what we can prove.. Undoubtedly we will unearth similar frauds in the future, it's a crime that's not going to go away.'

Since this case was uncovered authorities have closed the loophole that allowed criminals to exploit the phone system.

Commander Haydon said: 'As a result of the is case OFCOM have changed the way the phone system works so it is much harder for the phone system to be exploited in this way.'


How the 'Bank of Terror' gang hand-picked war veterans, widows and even cancer patients before stealing their life savings.

The Old Bailey heard the devastating impact the fraud has had on the elderly victims, who had an average age of 83.

Victims were bombarded with phone calls from the fraudsters posing and police officers, and were told not to speak to anyone about what they were doing in case they compromised the police operation.

The were told that the police suspected employees at the bank, and told them not to tell the cashier the reason for withdrawing the money.

Some were making so many trips to the bank, they were unable to attend important medical appointments or take care of their homes.

As a consequence of the fraud, many of the victims have suffered anxiety and depression and other health problems.

Thomas Garrett, 86, from Sandwich in Kent, had £3,000 stolen from him.

He said: 'My wife of 62 years died in September 2014, which hit me really hard.

'I was suffering from severe arthritis and the £3,000 was about a third of my savings, so my children and grandchildren are going to inherit less.

'It has made me less lose my confidence in my own judgment and myself to the point I can't trust myself to deal with my own financial affairs and I have entrusted them to my daughter.

'The loss of my wife and this fraud has led to a breakdown which I thought was the onset of dementia, but I have been diagnosed with depression.

'It makes me angry to think how foolish I was.'

Julia Hill had £11,000 stolen from her and her husband.

She said: 'We have felt like such idiots knowing that we have been conned. It is such a horrible feeling.

'I used to feel physically sick whenever I thought about it. It is not a nice world any more, a lot of people are just out to take and steal from others. I still feel a lot of anger towards these people.'

Kenneth Whitaker, 93 at the time of the fraud, had £113,000 stolen from him. He had fought in the Army Air Corps during the Second World War and had fought at the famous Battle of Arnhem.

Mr Whitaker, who has trouble with his eyes, said he had always been an independent person, but the fraud damaged that.

He said: 'I served in the Army Air Corps from 1939 and fought in the Second World War and was at Arnhem, after that I became involved in business.

'It is very difficult for me to say or put into words how this has affected me, there are a lot of things that I can't put my finger on. The best way I can put it is that it has made me feel a lot older.

'I never used to feel my age or how old I am, but I do now.

'Now I feel I have lost some of my independence, since this happened I've had to take a step back.'

He added: 'I don't feel as confident, but most of all I feel like such an idiot for not picking it up earlier. The worst thing is I thought I was helping.

'Throughout my time in the Army and business I've tried to do the right thing, I thought I was trying to help police officers catch criminals.

'Throughout my time in the world I was never afraid of anything, perhaps that's what made me a target. Now I just feel dumb and stupid for having fallen for it.'

Patricia Burnham, 87 at the time of the fraud, had £135,000 stolen from her.

Her husband was ill at the time and they had 'numerous' doctor's appointments to keep when they were conned into handing over their savings by a fraudster posing as Pc Jenkins. They believed that by handing over their money they were protecting it from criminals.

She said: 'I didn't want to burden my husband with all the requests from Pc Jenkins or worry him that our savings were at risk.'

She said the con artists had targeted them at a vulnerable time as she was worried about having enough money to pay for a nursing home, should her husband need one.

She said: 'I'm a law abiding, trusting individual who genuinely thought I was assisting police to uncover wrongdoing in banks. This scam has made me question everything.

'The money stolen was my, and my husband's, life savings, which meant we had financial certainty whatever happened.

'My husband passed away just two week after I handed the last package (of money) over to the courier. It is terrible that our last moments together were overshadowed by this horrible situation, and that the time that I kept running off to make withdrawals could have been spent together.

'They had absolutely no regard for my personal situation and preyed upon us at a point of particular vulnerability. I was a very independent individual, but this crime has changed me.'

Mosques Need Surveillance, Says Merkel Ally.

  1. O you who believe! When you go to war in Allah's way, make investigation, & do not say to any one who offers you peace: "You are not a believer. Do you seek goods of this world's life!" But with Allah there are abundant gains; you too were such before, then Allah conferred a benefit on you; therefore make investigation; surely Allah is aware of what you do.
  2. Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) & receive no hurt, & those who strive & fight in the cause of Allah with their goods & their lives. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive & fight with their goods & persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive & fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward:
So Allah the spittle-saturated rock idol tells his frothing followers, in sura four of his despicable & incoherent tome of trash, the Koran. We see from this that one way to invade a country & wage jihad is to migrate covertly, not displaying overt hostility until such time as the believers are ready to unleash carnage.

This is why Muslims living in the West mostly abide by the law of the land but attend Friday prayers, where they are harangued by frothing imams to despise their native neighbours & wait for the call to jihad. There are some people in the establishments of Western nations who are waking up to this fact & are saying that there is a problem. One of those people is Volker Kauder, as reported by MailOnline today (hat-tip to Ivan Humble @NewDayStarts):

Government spooks need to spy on mosques, declares senior member of Angela Merkel's ruling party in Germany

  • Volker Kauder said Germany's spy agencies should monitor mosques
  • Kauder is leader of Angela Merkel's CDU party in the German parliament
  • The far-right AfD recently called for a ban on minarets in Germany
  • In 2015 Saudi Arabia offered to build 200 mosques in German for migrants

Germany should be spying on the country's mosques to ensure they are not stirring up religious hatred, according to a key ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Volker Kauder, leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) group in the German parliament, said: 'We need to talk about the fact that in some mosques sermons do not correspond to our understanding of the role of the state.

'The state must control them. It is the duty of the state to keep checks on that.'

In an interview with the Berliner Zeitung, Mr Kauder said: 'Germany is a secular country in which religion doesn't take precedence over the state, but vice versa.

'Everyone has to abide by this, and all representatives and adherents to a religion need to accept this,' said Kauder.

Germany has so far been unaffected by the jihadist violence which has hit France, Belgium and some other European countries.

But several German citizens have gone to join ISIS in Syria and Iraq and there are fears that ISIS sympathisers might have entered the country during the migrant crisis.

The crisis has seen a rise in popularity for the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party, which may draw away support for the CDU.

AfD leader Frauke Petry called today for a ban on minarets, which she said were 'an expression of an Islamic claim to power which is in contravention of the German constitution.'

She told the Rheinische Post newspaper: 'Whoever wants to live a private Muslim life doesn't need minarets.'

The CDU has its roots in Protestant churches and is allied with the Catholic Bavaria-based Christian Social Union (CSU) in the Bundestag parliament.

But the CDU has always accepted the secular nature of the Federal Republic of Germany, which was founded in 1949 and took over eastern Germany in 1990 following the collapse of communism.

Politicians on the right have been proposing various laws in recent weeks to tackle a perceived problem with integration of German Muslims, many of whom have their origins in Turkey.

CSU leader Andreas Scheuer called recently for all mosque sermons to be delivered in German, rather than Turkish or Arabic.

Mr Scheuer said imams should be educated in Germany and 'share our fundamental values'.

But Mr Kauder disagreed with the idea and said: 'For Italians the holy mass is also given in Italian. In synagogues they pray in Hebrew. That should be accepted.'

Mr Kauder also had a dig at those in Britain who are campaigning to leave the European Union ahead of the referendum on June 23 but want a new trade deal with EU members.

He said Britain would lose all the benefits it enjoys as a full EU member and added: 'Out means out.'

Three Muslims in Court for Funding Terror.

"The Messenger & those who believe with him, strive hard & fight with their wealth & lives in Allah's Cause." So Allah tells his backward believers, in verse 9:88 of the most inane & worthless book ever vomited onto paper, the Koran.

The implication of this timeless piece of divine scripture is that funding terrorism is akin to hands-on bloody murder in the eyes of the pagan moon god. The two are also akin to each other in the eyes of English & Welsh law, as can be seen in this report from the BBC today (hat-tip to Ivan Humble @NewDayStarts):

Men accused of giving Brussels suspect Mohamed Abrini cash

Two men have appeared in court accused of giving money to the "man in the hat" suspected of being involved in the Brussels and Paris terrorist attacks.

Mohammed Ali Ahmed and Zakaria Boufassil, both 26, are accused of giving Mohamed Abrini £3,000 when he was in Birmingham in July last year.

They appeared with Soumaya Boufassil, 29, who is accused of collecting money for terrorist purposes with Mr Ahmed.

The trio, from Small Heath, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

Ms Boufassil, who wore a burka, and the two men, who wore jumpers, spoke only to confirm their details.

Question: Why is this terror-loving bitch allowed to wear the niqab? She doesn't respect our laws, why should the court respect her sick religion?

Mr Ahmed is a British national, while both Mr Boufassil and his sister, Ms Boufassil, are Belgian-Moroccans. They have all been living in Birmingham.

Mr Ahmed and Mr Boufassil face one count of the commission of offences abroad, on or before 7 July 2015, under section 17 of the Terrorism Act.

They are accused of entering into an arrangement in which money was made available to another person, and that they knew, or had reasonable cause to suspect, it would or may be used for the purposes of terrorism.

Mr Ahmed and Ms Boufassil are charged with the preparation of terrorist acts between 1 January 2015 and 8 April 2016, under section five of the Terrorism Act 2016.

The trio, who were arrested on 14 and 15 April, were remanded in custody and are due to appear at the Old Bailey in London on 13 May.

Mr Abrini, a 31-year-old Belgian of Moroccan origin, is in custody in Belgium on suspicion of connection with an attack in Brussels in March. He is also wanted in connection with the November attacks in Paris.

Journalists Gaoled in Turkey for Charlie Hebdo Blasphemy.

It is a question asked before on this site but it needs reasking: For how much longer can Turkey remain in NATO? NATO was originally set up for democracies to counter the USSR but as tyrannical & sinister as the present regime in Moscow is, it is not the horror of the Soviet Union, with its deliberate famines & mass graves. The ideology now digging the mass graves is Islam again, continuing its murderous 14-century career after a hiatus of about nine decades.

Our attention is, right now, directed towards the frothing savages of the Islamic State, with its genocidal zeal. Previously it was Iran. What we are not paying attention to is our NATO ally Turkey, prospective EU member & now orchestrating – with the complicity of Germany – the invasion of Europe in the guise of a refugee crisis.

Turkey is rapidly descending into theocratic despotism, suppressing its inhabitants' freedom of speech, covertly assisting the Islamic State & even trying to extend its reach into Europe, this at the same time as reviving the Ottoman identity. The latest episode of this islamically inspired encroachment upon the freedom of speech was reported by Reuters yesterday (hat-tip to Julie Lenarz @MsJulieLenarz):

Turkish journalists sentenced to two years in jail for reprinting Charlie Hebdo cover

A Turkish court sentenced two journalists to two years in jail for blasphemy on Thursday, their newspaper said, after they reprinted a controversial cover from the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo above their columns last year.

The judgement is likely to inflame concerns about freedom of expression in Turkey, where opposition newspapers have been seized and a number of journalists have been sued for insulting President Tayyip Erdogan.

Ceyda Karan and Hikmet Cetinkaya, columnists for Cumhuriyet daily, had faced jail terms of up to 4-1/2 years for "insulting religious values" after they reprinted the caricature of the Prophet Mohammad following the January 2015 attacks on Charlie Hebdo in Paris.

Muslim Turkey's constitution strictly separates state and religion but its penal code makes it a crime to insult religion. For Muslims, any depiction of the Prophet is blasphemous.

A sample of the cartoons published by Charlie Hebdo. Click, enlarge & propagate.

"We will appeal (the ruling). We will not leave this country to fascists in Islam sauce," Karan said on Twitter.

The secular Cumhuriyet faced security threats when it became one of five international publications that printed excerpts of the edition of Charlie Hebdo that appeared after the attacks to show its solidarity with the magazine.

Its editor, Can Dundar, and Ankara bureau chief, Erdem Gul, are facing possible life imprisonment over charges of espionage for their reporting, in a separate case that has drawn international condemnation.

They stand accused of trying to topple the government after publishing video last May purporting to show Turkey's state intelligence agency helping to truck weapons to Syria in 2014.

In a report last week, Reporters Without Borders ranked Turkey 151st out of 180 countries in the world press freedom index rankings in 2016.

Last week a prominent Dutch journalist was detained by Turkish police while on holiday, a week after she criticized Erdogan in print for clamping down on dissent.

Erdogan is known for his readiness to take legal action over perceived slurs. At his behest, prosecutors in Germany are pursuing a comedian for mocking him. Critics say Erdogan uses the courts to stifle dissent.

Saudi Family Persecuted for Refusing Role in Islamic Takeover of UK.

'Narrated Ikrima: Ali burnt some people & this news reached Ibn Abbas, who said, "Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, 'Don't punish (anybody) with Allah's Punishment.' No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.'"' So it says in Islam's most authoritative compilation of ahadith, Sahih Bukhari, in volume four, book 52, number, 260.

So, there we have it, straight from the horse's mouth: you leave Islam, you die. What a peaceful & tolerant religion Islam must be. Clearly, refusing to assist in the Saudi state-funded acquisition of English churches, for the purposes of conversion into mosques, can be construed as having left Islam. And how nice that we now know that Saudi Arabia is doing this, as told by this report from the Evening Times today:

Family fear deportation after Saudi government cut their funding

A MUM-OF-TWO fears her family will be separated and deported after funding for her studies was cut off from her government.

Haifa Alshamrani, 29, from Saudi Arabia was studying a medical degree at Glasgow University after being awarded a scholarship last year from the Saudi Government.

But Haifa's dreams quickly turned to a nightmare after her funding was cut off in November 2015, leaving the family, including husband Abdulla, 36, and children Mohammed, 10, and Gadah, seven, destitute.

Haifa has been forced to sell her wedding ring to pay the rent for the next month, and started a crowd funder page to raise cash to help.

The family insist they have been cut off after husband Abdullah refused to help students from Saudi Arabia build a Wahhabi mosque in the UK.

Wahhabism is the dominant faith in Saudi Arabia but is considered by many to be ultra-orthodox and strict.

Before moving to Glasgow the family lived in Preston where Abdullah, a former maths teacher, mentored Saudi students and helped them with their studies.

They're smiling, because they've left Islam! The Alshamrani family in happier times.

However Abdullah, who is agnostic and does not practice Islam, did not want to get involved in religious activities with the students.

Haifa said: "The students were in the process of buying a church to convert into a mosque. They wanted him to help.

"My husband said this wasn't really his duty, it was for him to assist them with academic issues.

"They reported him to the embassy, and the embassy started putting pressure on him to do what they wanted.

"His views, because he didn't practice Islam, he was sacked.

"It was clearly indicted to the embassy that he was an infidel.

The Alshamrani family face the very real prospect of persecution & death if they return to the Islamic hell-hole that is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

"It was a shock for us to see it here in the UK."

Despite Abdullah's disagreement with the students, Haifa was told her scholarship was still valid and the family came to Glasgow only to find out after three months that the scholarship was no longer in place.

The family claim embassy officials came to their home and threatened them with persecution when the return to Saudi Arabia due to Abdullah's non-compliance.

Their bank accounts have also been frozen.

They have now filed an asylum claim in the hope of being given refuge in the UK, but are stuck in limbo as they wait for the Home Office to process their claim.

Haifa said: "We're very worried about what will happen to us if we go back.

"We've spoken to the local MP about it, we don't know what to do.

"I'm scared we will be put in a detention centre and split up. We can't work either as we don't have a visa."

The Saudi Embassy and did not respond to requests for comment when contacted by the Evening Times.

The Home Office said it does not routinely comment on individual cases.

Luton Muslim Arrested for Syria-Linked Terrorism.

'On the authority of Thawbaan: The Messenger of Allah said: "If you see the Black Banners coming from Khurasan go to them immediately, even if you must crawl over ice, because indeed amongst them is the Caliph, Al Mahdi."' So says one of the most authoritative compilations of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sunan Ibn Majah, in volume three, number 4084.

Once some frothing dunce in the back of beyond proclaims himself to be the caliph, Muslims all over the world feel the need to go there & obey his every bloody whim. Such a frothing dunce is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the chief of the Islamic State, & the young man in Luton featuring in this report from Luton on Sunday today, Wednesday (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson @TRobinsonNewEra) now sits in a London police cell for trying to go to him:

21-year-old Luton man arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences

A 21-year-old man from Luton has been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the commission, preparation and instigation of terrorism.

The man was arrested at approximately 1pm today (Wednesday, April 27) by officers from the Met Police Counter Terrorism Command (SO15), assisted by officers from the Eastern Counter Terrorism Intelligence Unit.

He is currently in custody at a south London police station.

The officers are investigating suspected terrorism offences including plans to travel to Syria to support a proscribed organisation.

Rapejihad in Nottingham: Afghan Asylum Seeker Gaoled for Eight Years.

  1. When we reached Khaybar, Mohammed said that Allah had enabled him to conquer them. It was then that the beauty of Safiyah was described to him. Her husband had been killed, so Allah's Apostle selected her for himself. He took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad where her menses were over & he took her for his wife, consummating his marriage to her, & forcing her to wear the veil.
  2. The Muslims said among themselves, "Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet's wives or just a lady captive & one of his possessions?"

So says the most trusted compilation of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume five, book 59. This piece of scripture clearly demonstrates that Mohammed was an evil & depraved serial rapist, who thought nothing of kidnapping non-Muslim women & using them as sex slaves.

Because this scumbag is the epitome of moral rectitude in the twisted Islamic scheme of things & the template for Muslims' behaviour, we see them emulating this filth in whichever Western nation to which they have migrated. The latest Muslim to reach the news in the UK for copying his prophet in this way is the Afghan asylum seeker, Shapoor Azimi, who features in this report from the Daily Express yesterday (hat-tip to DutchBluehand @DutchBluehand):

Afghan cabbie raped woman in back of cab - despite earlier kerb crawling convictions
AN Afghan asylum seeker was allowed to continue working as a taxi driver despite convictions of kerb-crawling before going on to rape a student in the back of his cab.

Shapoor Azimi, 37, has been jailed for eight years after attacking the young woman on the back seat of his private-hire vehicle after picking her up after a night out.

Evil Azimi raped the lone 22-year-old victim after cruising Nottingham on October 17 last year searching for young women to prey on.

Shockingly, Nottingham City Council had failed to notice he was cautioned for kerb crawling in 2005 and convicted for soliciting a lone woman for sex in 2011.

The authority had now launched an internal investigation after admitting the past convictions should have been spotted.

The cabbie, an asylum seeker from Afghanistan, was convicted of rape by a jury and was jailed at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday.

Nottingham Crown Court.

Sentencing, Judge Timothy Spencer told Azimi, who is married, that he had brought depravation on his family and himself.

He also raised concerns about how the "sexual deviant" had been allowed to work on the streets as a taxi driver following his previous crimes.

He added: "On that night you were working as a taxi driver in this city.

Azimi
"You were, in my judgement, preying on young women. One of whom was the victim.

"You, in my judgement, were a chancer. You spotted your chance. She filled at least some of your desires.

"In particular she was clearly in a state of disorientation through alcohol and you decided, in my judgement, that she was prey for your sexual desires.

"Somewhere in that journey you decided rather than take her home, as your duty and obligation was to do, you were going to stop and take advantage of her.

Judge Spencer described the defendant as "wholly unsuitable to be driving a taxi anywhere".

He went on: "I know not if he was checked by taxi licensing, whether he withheld his relevant conviction or caution from taxi licensing, or whether they checked independently against records that must have been available to them.

"That conviction and caution reveal a situation where this man was wholly unsuitable to be driving a taxi anywhere and certainly within this city.

"It seems to me if the authority did carry out any checks they need to look carefully at the system and go to independent records, which I assume are available to them by going to the police."

The court heard the victim got into the taxi following a night out at Propaganda nightclub in Nottingham city centre at around 4am.

But just 15 minutes after Azimi pulled over and climbed into the back seat where he raped the graduate student.

He left her on a street in Lenton, Nottingham, to find her own way home but he was later caught after his DNA was found on swabs taken from the victim.

Azimi even tried to blame the victim and claimed she had actually sexually assaulted him after he turned her down for sex.

He told the court he rebuffed the woman's advances who "begged for sex" because he was "a professional man".

But prosecutor Gordon Aspden said his defence was a transparent attempt to "get away with rape" and described the defendant as a "deviant" driven by "sexual compulsion".

Azimi, of Bobbers Mill, Nottingham, was convicted of one count of rape but cleared of another relating to the same victim.

A Nottingham City Council spokesman said "they were very sorry" after the hearing.

He added: "This driver applied for a licence with us in 2008.

"His earlier caution and conviction undoubtedly should have been spotted in our background checks and acted on and we are very sorry that this didn't happen.

"If we were presented with the same situation today, our procedures have improved sufficiently for us to be confident that he would be identified as a person who was not fit and proper to be a taxi driver, and so not given a licence.

"Our priority is to protect the public.

"We now demand higher standards of drivers and if there is the slightest doubt about a person's suitability, we err on the side of caution and don't issue a licence.

"We now carry out DBS checks every year rather than every three and our licensing team is now co-located with the police licensing team where intelligence sharing and closer working will allow issues like this to be identified and acted on."

Hungary: A Bastion of Sanity & Islamorealism in a Dhimmi Europe.

"Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve, then they would not believe." So Allah the revolting rock idol tells his frothing & hate-filled fanatics, in the most ridiculous & evil book ever written, the Koran, in verse 8:55.

Muslim are brainwashed into despising the rest of us from day one & this contempt is in evidence wherever they have migrated in large numbers: in France, Sweden, Germany & England, we see the hatred they have for us in their behaviour. Therefore, what sort of idiot sees a swarm of Islamic migrants approaching over the horizon & says: "Oh, goody, more Muslims!"

Well, a great number of Western politicians, it seems. Not every single one of them, however, as Hungarian premier Victor Orban demonstrated in this piece from Yahoo News on Monday:

Hungary's PM Orban: 'Islamization' banned by constitution

Hungary's constitution bans "Islamization" because the document aims to protect Hungarian language and culture, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Monday.

Orban also said the constitution forces the government to oppose any kind of mass migration that would endanger those principles.

"To be clear and unequivocal, I can say that Islamization is constitutionally banned in Hungary," Orban said in parliament at an event celebrating the fifth anniversary of Hungary's new constitution, now known as the Basic Law.

Orban
Orban was quoting from the National Avowal, the Basic Law's preamble, which details the country's commitment "to promoting and safeguarding our heritage, our unique language, Hungarian culture" and the protection of "the living conditions of future generations."

Hungary maintains that the migrant issue is a matter of national sovereignty.

"We have the right to choose whom we want and don't want to live with," Orban said.

Hungary has built razor-wire fences on its southern borders to stop migrants from passing through to other European nations. Orban has said he wants "zero" migrants in the East European nation.

Before the fences, nearly 400,000 migrants entered Hungary in 2015 on their way to richer nations in Western Europe.

Hungary has sued the EU at the European Court of Justice to avoid having to take part in an EU plan to resettle migrants. The government is also organizing a national referendum over the EU quotas, meant to rally political support for its anti-immigrant position.

Apostate Teachers Gaoled in Bangladesh.

'Narrated Ikrima: Ali burnt some people & this news reached Ibn Abbas, who said, "Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, 'Don't punish (anybody) with Allah's Punishment.' No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.'"' So it says in Islam's most authoritative compilation of ahadith, Sahih Bukhari, in volume four, book 52, number, 260.

This is why we see ex-Muslims living in fear in Western societies. It is why we see atheist bloggers being hacked to death in formerly secular, but rapidly Islamising, Bangladesh. The penalty for rejecting the filth of Islam is death. Thus we may surmise that the educational professionals gaoled for insulting religion, as reported by NewsX today (hat-tip to Stephen Gash @Stephen_Gash) had a lucky escape:

Teachers booked for insulting Islam in Bangladesh

A Bangladesh court has jailed two teachers for making derogatory comments about Islam and the Prophet Muhammad.

Magistrate Anwar Parvez said the case began after two students at Hijla High School in Bagerhat district complained that the assistant teacher of a science class on Sunday dismissed the Quran as the word of Allah and said there was no heaven, reports media.

The students, aged 17 to 18, along with others from a nearby, Islamic school became infuriated after the high school's head teacher backed up his colleague.

Parvez said that the teachers lock themselves in a room until police intervened as a mob including students, parents and villagers attacked them.

"The situation went out of control, the mob wanted to take law in their hands," said Parvez.

Following the rage, the magistrate of the quick-ruling court said the assistant teacher pleaded guilty of publicly insulting religion, and both the teachers were sentenced to six months behind bars.

The Muslim-majority country has been witnessing rise in the cases of attacks on atheist writers, religious minorities and activists who make use of their freedom of speech.

In a recent incident, two men including the editor of a gay rights magazine were hacked to death.

Erdogan Tried to Censor Swiss Expression. Switzerland Rejects.

In a move that beggars belief, though in very much the tyrannical vein as previous posts (2, 3, 4, 5, 6) Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey, has tried to censor freedom of expression in a European country, this time Switzerland. Displaying the childish mentality typical of unacculturated Muslim males, as described by Danish criminal psychologist Nicolai Sennels, (in an essay for the New English Review in May 2010 & in interview with Robert Spencer in February 2013,) the man who is trying to bludgeon his way into the European Union is attempting to have a Kurdish display taken down in Geneva, as reported by RT News today:

Geneva rejects Turkish demand to remove pic accusing Erdogan of killing boy

Turkey's demand to remove a photo of a boy from an exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland, has been rejected. The photo claims that then-PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan was directly involved in the death of a child amidst anti-government protests in 2013.

"Geneva will not allow any country to be influenced in this matter. Geneva and Switzerland stand for freedom of expression," Vice Mayor Guillaume Barazzone told Swiss media.

Place des Nations in front of the UN Office, where the exhibition is being staged, is a good example of this freedom as this is "where minorities must be able to express" their opinions, he added.

"Therefore the administrative council will support this exhibition and it is out of the question to remove this photograph."

Demir Sönmez, a Swiss photographer of Kurdish and Armenian origin, said he is appalled by the Turkish reaction to his exhibition.

"I am shocked, but at the same time I am not surprised, because Mr Erdogan and his government have no tolerance whatsoever for freedom of expression and freedom of information," he said, as cited by Reuters.

READ MORE: Turkey demands Switzerland remove picture accusing Erdogan of killing boy

The scandal broke out on Monday when Ankara demanded Switzerland remove a photo of Berkin Elvan, a boy who was fatally injured in June 2013 during mass demonstrations against then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at Istanbul's Gezi Park.

"My name is Berkin Elvan. The police killed me, on the order of Turkey's prime minister," says the caption under the photo of Elvan.

On June 16, 2013, Elvan left home to buy some bread, his family said. On the way back he was hit in the head with a tear gas canister that was fired by police during clashes with protesters.

The boy died in hospital at the age of 15 after spending 269 days in a coma. His mother, Gulsum Elvan, blamed his death on Erdogan, who praised the "legendary heroism" of police in anti-government rallies back in June 2013.

The boy's death sparked mass protests in Turkey; many of them resulted in violent clashes between demonstrators and police.

Turkey's embassy in the Swiss capital Bern confirmed on Tuesday that they had been trying to "establish verbal contact with the Geneva city authorities" to inform them that Elvan's photograph raised certain "reactions" by Geneva-based Turkish non-governmental organizations.

This is not the first time Erdogan has tried to exercise influence over foreign media.

In April, Germany opened an investigation into TV comedian Jan Boehmermann's poem criticizing the Turkish president after Erdogan filed a personal lawsuit against him. The comic now faces prosecution under a rarely-used law that punishes those who insult foreign dignitaries.

The Turkish consulate in Rotterdam emailed Turkish organizations with the request they report "derogatory" comments about "our President, the Turkish nation or Turkey in general." In a sinister turn, the letter refers to "everything that's being shared on Twitter, Facebook and even in private emails."

A number of EU journalists have been denied entry to Turkey in recent months. In April, Dutch journalist Ebru Umar said she was briefly detained in Turkey over Twitter posts critical of Erdogan. Also in April, a TV journalist for German broadcaster ARD Volker Schwenck, who was going to the Turkish-Syrian border to report on refugees, spent six hours detained at Istanbul airport after being refused entry into Turkey.

In March a correspondent for the influential German magazine Der Spiegel, Hasnain Kazim, was forced to leave the country by Turkish authorities after his press credentials weren't renewed. The magazine's editor-in-chief accused Turkey of violating press freedom.

Shocking Defeatism, Naivety, Treason & Weakness from Belgium's Dhimmis.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

This is a document to the servant of Allah Umar, the Leader of the faithful, from the Christians of such & such city. When you (Muslims) came to us we requested safety for ourselves, children, property & followers of our religion. We made a condition on ourselves that:

  • We shall neither erect in our neighbourhoods monasteries, churches, or sanctuaries for monks, nor restore any place of worship in need of restoration nor use any of them for enmity against Muslims.
  • We shall not prevent any Muslim from resting in our churches whether they come by day or night, & we shall open the doors (of our houses of worship) for the wayfarer & passer-by. Those Muslims, who come as guests, shall enjoy boarding & food for three days.
  • We shall not allow a spy against Muslims into our churches & homes or hide deceit (or betrayal) against Muslims.
  • We shall not teach our children the Koran, publicise the practices of idolatry, invite anyone to idolatry or prevent any of our fellows from embracing Islam, if they choose to do so.
  • We shall respect Muslims, move from the places we sit in if they choose to sit in them.
  • We shall not imitate their clothing, caps, turbans, sandals, hairstyles, speech, nicknames & title names, or ride on saddles, hang swords on the shoulders, collect weapons of any kind or carry these weapons.
  • We shall not write our stamps in Arabic.
  • We shall not sell alcohol.
  • We shall have the front of our hair cut, wear our customary clothes wherever we are, wear belts around our waist, refrain from erecting crosses on the outside of our churches or demonstrating them & our books in public in Muslim thoroughfares & markets.
  • We shall not sound the bells in our churches, except discretely, or raise our voices while reciting our holy books inside our churches in the presence of Muslims, nor raise our voices (with prayer) at our funerals, or light torches in funeral processions in the thoroughfares of Muslims, or their markets.
  • We shall not bury our dead next to Muslim dead, or buy slaves captured by Muslims.
  • We shall be guides for Muslims & refrain from invading their privacy in their homes.
  • We shall not build our houses overtopping the houses of the Muslims.
  • We shall not beat any Muslim.

These are the conditions that we set against ourselves & followers of our religion in return for safety & protection. If we break any of these promises that we set for your benefit against ourselves, then our Dhimmah (promise of protection) is broken & you are allowed to do with us what you are allowed of people of defiance & rebellion.

This is the pact of Umar, the settlement for non-Muslims freshly conquered in their own ancestral homelands by Muslim invaders whereby they live as dhimmis, second class citizens for all time. The Christians & Jews of every city in the Middle East overrun by invading Arabs had to agree to this or face death. As we survey the Islamic world today we see that things are not much more advanced, with Christians in Egypt, Pakistan & Turkey facing persecution, not to mention the extermination they face in Syria, Iraq & Nigeria.

This is the future our descendants face if we allow Islamic immigration & ascendancy to progress in Europe. Some Western politicians, self-hating & culturally suicidal, want this to happen & are now crawling out of the woodwork with their white flags & as much as saying so, as reported by MailOnline today (hat-tip to The Religion of Peace):

Europe 'to have more Muslims than Christians': Belgian minister warns Brussels attacks hearing that the continent should not 'make an enemy of Islam'

  • Koen Geens said the continent 'does not realise this, but this is the reality'
  • Remarks follow Jan Jambon's claims in the wake of Brussels bombings 'a section of the Muslim community danced when attack took place'
  • Mr Jambon was accused of stoking tensions with Belgium's Muslims

Muslims will 'very soon' outnumber practising Christians in Europe, a Belgian minister claimed yesterday.

Koen Geens, the justice minister, told the European Parliament the continent 'does not realise this, but this is the reality'.

At a hearing by MEPs into the Brussels attacks, the Belgian deputy prime minister Jan Jambon added that 'the worst thing we can do is to make an enemy of Islam'.

The remarks follow claims by Mr Jambon in the wake of the suicide bombings that 'a significant section of the Muslim community danced when attacks took place'.

Speaking before the Parliament's justice and home affairs committee yesterday, Mr Koens said the EU needed to realise a shift in population was taking place.

'In Europe, very shortly we're soon going to have more practising Muslims than practising Christians,' he said.

'That is not because there are too many Muslims, it is because Christian are generally less practising.

'Europe does not realise this, but this is the reality.'

Mr Jambon, who also serves as the country's interior minister, added: 'I've said a thousand times, the worst thing we can do is to make an enemy of Islam. That is the very worst thing we could do.

'We have 600,000 to 700,000 Muslims in Belgium and the overwhelming majority of those people share our values.

'To make an enemy of all of those people, we really will be creating problems. We need to see who the terrorists are, who supports the terrorists, what networks are there to support them.

'That is who we need to tackle and we need to get all of the rest of the Muslims on our side not working against us.'

Mr Jambon was accused of stoking tensions with Belgium's Muslim community after he claimed there was 'dancing' after the attacks that killed 32 at Brussels airport and an underground station in the city.

In the interview with a Belgian newspaper on 16 April, he also accused Muslim residents of the Molenbeek district of attacking police officers during an operation last month to arrest Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam.

Several of the terrorists involved in both the Paris and Brussels killings lived in the neighbourhood that has a large Muslim population.

'They threw stones and bottles at police and press during the arrest of Salah Abdeslam. This is the real problem,' he said.

'Terrorists we can pick up, remove from society. But they are just a boil. Underneath is a cancer that is much more difficult to treat. We can do it, but it won't be overnight.'

Last night a spokesman for Mr Geens refused to provide evidence to back up his claims on the number of practising Muslims. She said: 'His comments were very clear, I will not say anything more.'

The EU's official statistical body Eurostat said it did not compile figures on religion.

But European Commission figures from 2012 show that, across Europe as a whole, 72 per cent of people identified themselves as Christian compared to two per cent who said they were Muslim.

In Belgium the figures were 65 per cent and five per cent respectively.

Although the numbers actually practising their religion may vary wildly, it is not known if such figures exist.

The Belgian ministers' claims do not tally with the assessments of most respected analysts of religions and their numbers of followers.

The country's national census has never counted religious groups – unlike Britain's – so independent surveys are the only source of information.

A number of studies have suggested that Muslims make up around five per cent of the country's population.

A key study is the religious population project carried out by the Washington-based Pew Research Centre.

Last year it projected that the number of Muslims in Europe, including Russia and Ukraine, would increase by 63 per cent between 2010 and 2050.

This increase would mean the Muslim population of Europe would rise from 43.5 million to nearly 71 million.

Christian numbers in Europe, Pew said, would drop over the same period by 18 per cent from 553 million to 454 million.

In Belgium, the study said that of the 10.7 million population 6.9 million are Christian and 630,000 Muslim. In 2050, it projected, this would changed to an overall population of 11.1 million, with 5.9 million Christians and 1.3 million Muslims.

The study is based on people who identify themselves as Christians or Muslims, rather than the much less precise category of who is 'practising' either faith.

Researchers said the rapid projected growth in the number of Muslims was due to a higher fertility, younger populations and migration.

Mr Jambon and Mr Koens both offered to resign following the 22 March attacks on Brussels, but they were refused.

Mr Koens yesterday complained about how Belgium had been 'violently attacked' for its 'weak and inadequate' handling of the attacks. He insisited [sic] the criticism was 'an insult' to his country.

Canadian Hostage Beheaded in the Philippines.

'When your Lord revealed to the angels: "I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads & strike off every fingertip of them."' So Allah the repulsive moon god tells his bloodthirsty fanatical believers, in verse 8:12 of his ghastly grimoire of garbage, the Koran.

This is the reason, had one been curious, that seemingly disconnected Islamic terrorist groups around the world appear to be equally sanguinary, to wit, they are all working from the same playbook. The latest example of Islamic bloodlust comes to us not from Syria, Iraq, Somalia or Nigeria but from the Philippines, as reported by the BBC today:

John Ridsdel: Hostage from Canada killed in Philippines

A Canadian man held captive by Islamist militants for months in the Philippines has been killed.

John Ridsdel, 68, was taken from a tourist resort along with three others by the Abu Sayyaf group in September last year.

The group had threatened to kill a male hostage on April 25 if a ransom was not paid.

Confirming the death, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called it "an act of cold-blooded murder".

Mr Ridsdel was kidnapped from a marina near the city of Davao along with another Canadian, Robert Hall, Norwegian Kjartan Sekkingstad and a Philippine woman, Mr Hall's girlfriend Marites Flor.

They were taken 500km (300 miles) to the island of Jolo. Abu Sayyaf released a video of the group in November, in which they demanded $80m (£55m) for their release.

Mr Ridsdel later warned that he was due to be killed if no ransom was paid.

Several hours after the deadline, a severed head was found in a street on Jolo. The Philippine authorities said it belonged to a foreign man but it has not yet been formally identified.

Former mining executive

"It's hard," a friend of Mr Ridsdel, Bob Rae, told CBC News. "It's just very hard. I've been involved behind the scenes for the last six months trying to find a solution and it's been very painful."

A former mining executive, Mr Ridsdel is described by Canadian media as semi-retired.

He also worked as a journalist.

Ridsdel
Trudeau
Offering his condolences, Mr Trudeau gave few details, saying he would not compromise the safety of the other captives.

Abu Sayyaf was set up in the 1990s and received funding from al-Qaeda. It is fighting for an independent Islamic province in the Philippines.

Several of its factions have declared their allegiance to the militant group Islamic State. Abu Sayyaf is also holding several other foreigners.

Eighteen Philippine soldiers were killed in clashes with the militants on Basilan island near Jolo island earlier this month.

Kent Police Cover Up Bluewater Rapejihad.

In the aftermath of a story from Kent, in which a woman was bundled into a van in the car park of the Bluewater shopping centre & gang raped, facts in themselves which took police six weeks to release to the public, the police have tried to suggest that the perpetrators were native-born Englishmen. This story was covered on this site on Wednesday, whereby it was pointed out that this has all the hallmarks of Islamically-inspired gang-rape, such as those seen across England in towns such as Rotherham & Rochdale, & across Europe, as a result of the wholly contrived refugee crisis.

The question one has to ask is: can the police's version of events be believed? Are we to believe that a group of eleven Englishmen got together & decided, apropos of nothing, to commit this heinous & very specific crime & one hitherto strange to the sons of Albion, in a county out of all the counties of England which has five major ports connecting the country with continental Europe & one high-speed rail-link? Or is it more likely the case that a group of recently arrived Muslims, following the heinous example of their prophet, committed the crime now synonymous with their religion & already committed by men of their ilk in that very county (1, 2)?

"Hang on!" I hear you say, "Are you seriously suggesting that Kent Police have lied to us, about the origin & religion of these filth?" Simply, yes. Of late, we have witnessed South Yorkshire Police cover up the mass rape & trafficking of English girls in Rotherham, by Pakistani Muslims, & we have seen Greater Manchester Police do the same in Rochdale.

Thinking further back, when little Damilola Taylor's femoral artery was opened up in a reeking stairwell, there to be left to die, London Metropolitan Police were determined to prosecute a group of white teenagers for the crime, desperate to be seen not to be anti-black after the Stephen Lawrence debacle, even when they knew that two budding career criminals, both black, were actually responsible.

If both the South Yorkshire & Greater Manchester constabularies can conceal industrial-scale child sex trafficking & London Metropolitan Police can prosecute teenagers of the wrong race, all for political correctness & social cohesion, then Kent Police can lie about the identities of a gang of mass rapists for the same reason. Taking in the level of obfuscation depicted in this report from the Daily Express on Saturday, a reasonable person might conclude that this is, indeed, what has happened:

Bluewater gang rape: WHY were the public kept in the dark by police?
CLAIMS of a cover-up have been levelled at police after a woman was allegedly gang raped in the grounds of Bluewater shopping centre.

On Mother's Day more than SIX WEEKS AGO a young woman says she was sexually assaulted in the vast carpark at the mall in Kent.

Formerly Britain's largest, the sprawling shopping centre is home to numerous CCTV cameras, and is visited by millions each year.

Between 7pm and 8.30pm on March 6, the woman, in her 20s, claims she was bundled into the back of a van and gang-raped by seven men, in an ordeal which could have lasted up to three hours.

Police only provided details on Wednesday this week – including that a number of men had been arrested but released on bail - but the information begged many, many more questions.

Reporters at Express.co.uk persisted to ask relevant, legitimate questions on behalf of the public, yet time after time they were stonewalled.

The questions were those already being raised both within the community and on social media and included:

  • Why did it take so long for police to release details of a deeply serious sexual assault at a shopping centre used by huge numbers of shoppers each year?
  • And were the men British or foreign born?

All were legitimate questions which could have been cleared up by Kent Police answering promptly and accurately to allay public fears and suspicion.

TWO days after our reporters first started asking the questions Kent Police's media office began dribbled out more information.

Kent County Councillor Penny Cole said: "It's a question... why didn't we know?

"It definitely should have come out sooner.

"As a local councillor I would have liked to have known about it and I think residents will be concerned about it."

Initially the police revealed 11 men had been arrested in connection with the attack.

Following pressure, more information dribbled out; they were all men, they were aged between 16-22 and they were all from Kent.

A spokesman said the group were "promptly identified".

One of the men has been released without charge, and the remainder are on police bail.

And questions persisted, with fears growing England may have witnessed its first Cologne-style sex attack carried out by migrants and community fears of a police cover-up.

This, together with persistent questioning from journalists and members of the public finally led the police to confirm it was not a Cologne-style sex attack as some feared, and forced the police to reveal additional details.

A spokesman said: "Due to the widespread attention this incident has received, investigating officers can confirm that all the 11 men who were arrested are white, English and non-Muslim."

They added it was believed to be an "isolated incident", and no others were being linked to the attack at this time.

Greenhithe councillor, Keith Kelly, who represents the area Bluewater is in, said he was "absolutely horrified" to hear of the attack.

He said: "I'm absolutely stunned personally that this could happen at Bluewater given the very visible security that they have there.

"The fact that allegedly someone could be snatched off the street into a van horrifies me.

"Until the story broke I certainly wasn't aware, I haven't spoken to any of my colleagues at Dartford or Stone if they knew, certainly I didn't.

"Six weeks is quite surprising. I was disappointed to read they were on bail."

He said his thoughts were with the victim, before adding: "We do unfortunately get some people who want to draw parallels along race or religion."

Kent Police said it was not standard practice to release someone's ethnicity in any case, but it was necessary "due to inaccurate information that was circulating".

Of course, a prompt, clear and accurate release to the media in the first place would have prevented and "inaccurate information".

The press office stated: "We appreciate the public concern in relation to this incident but would like to reassure members of the public that we have made arrests and at this stage we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the case.

"A full investigation is underway and work to gather evidence continues, but if anyone has any information that they have not brought to our attention we would encourage them to do so."

If you have information call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

I would like to express my gratitude to Kay for drawing my attention to this news & thus making this post possible.

All Is not Well in the Islamic State Idyll.

"Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others & because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; & (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, & leave them alone in the sleeping-places & beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great." So Allah the moronic moon god tells his benighted believers, referring to himself in the third person, calling himself great & advising on the treatment of women, in verse 4:34 of his risible Koran.

Women don't have it very good in the Islamic world, as you may have noticed from what one learns from Muslims living in the West & from news from Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan etc. Just imagine what it must be like in the swirling insanity of the Islamic State. Now the Islamic State has opened marriage guidance centres for those silly bitches that went over there to become jihadi brides, as reported by the Mirror yesterday (hat-tip to Mr Normal ن @PaulWilko657):

ISIS forced to offer marriage guidance counselling to unhappy brides fleeing
Thousands of Westerners – including British women – left their comfortable lives to marry a fighter after being radicalised online

Islamic State militants have been forced to open a marriage guidance office to calm unhappy jihadi brides in Syria.

Thousands of Westerners – including British women – left their comfortable lives to marry a fighter after being radicalised online.

But The New Day reveals how many are struggling to cope with the constant threat of airstrikes, as well as food shortages and lack of running water and electricity.

So in a bid to keep couples together and stop women fleeing from their new lives, the regime has opened its first relationship counselling centre.

In an attempt to show would-be jihadists in the West that the Islamic State is a functioning society – the regime's media wing has released pictures of its marriage guidance centre in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria.

Snaps show a troubled wife getting counselling from a leader in an office that has a box of tissues on the desk for the upset spouse to use.

The reality is that punishing airstrikes and the harsh realities of life under strict Islamic law across their heartlands in Syria and Iraq, are taking their toll on daily life.

Beheadings, hands being cut off and public floggings have become daily scenes.

In the Iraqi city of Mosul, civilians are subjected to brutal punishments by ISIS officials for listening to music, smoking or using a mobile phone.

Many more are punished for violating Islamic dress and not attending prayers.

Water supplies, when they are running at all, are so contaminated that it gives people diarrhoea and stomach cramps.

A woman in Mosul interviewed by dissident site Open Your Eyes: "At least before you we had electricity, we could bake and cook.

"Our basic needs were met. Now we are back to ancient times."

Sudden Jihad Syndrome in Strasbourg: Soldier Sliced.

Sudden Jihad Syndrome (SJS) is the phenomenon of a previously law-abiding Muslim lashing out at any infidel in proximity using anything that comes to hand as a weapon. We’ve seen cars, axes & knives used to injure & kill non-Muslims in locations as diverse as: Toulouse & Montauban, Ilford, Bradford, Edmonton, Afula in Israel, Manchester (twice now), Moore in Oklahoma, Quebec, Jerusalem (2, 3, 4, 5, 6), Ottawa, New York, Mishor Adumim in Israel, Dijon, Detroit & Paris to name but a few. The latest episode of SJS has occurred in Strasbourg on Saturday, as reported by The Local today:

French soldier sliced by 'Arabic-speaking man'

A soldier in eastern France has been attacked by an Arabic-speaking man wielding a box cutter, reports say.

The attack occurred on Saturday night near the central train station in Strasbourg, reported BFM TV.

At around 8pm, the man was reportedly walking in the same direction as some patrol troops when he turned around, sliced the face of one of the soldiers, then fled the scene.

The soldiers, who were patrolling the station as part of France's heightened security measures following last year's terror attacks, allowed the man to escape rather than risking the safety of the public or causing a stampede, they said.

The aggressor was reportedly speaking Arabic at the time, though did not say "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) as has been the case in previous random attacks on soldiers and police in France.

The soldier did not sustain serious injuries, the channel reported.

Ever since the terror attacks in Paris last January, France has seen armed soldiers patrolling the streets, especially in busy areas like train stations and tourist attractions.

Since then there have incidents where soldiers have been attacked, by individuals.

In February last year, a man attacked three soldiers with a knife in southern France's Nice. Two of the troops received wounds.

In January this year, a man was shot and wounded after driving his car at four soldiers guarding a mosque in southeastern France.

In May 2013 a solder was attacked by a man with a knife in La Defense business district near Paris.

The incidents were blamed on individuals with mental health problems rather than terror attacks.

Nevertheless soldiers and police officers, who have also been targeted by individuals in the street, remain on high alert.

Islamic State Suicide Bombers Kill at Least Eleven at Shi'ite Mosques in Baghdad Area.

"And kill them wherever you find & catch them. Drive them out from where they have turned you out; for Fitna is worse than slaughter." So Allah the primitive & bloodthirsty moon god tells his backward believers, in the worst book ever regurgitated onto paper, the Koran, in verse 2:191.

Leaving aside Geert Wilders's film Fitna, the fitna referred to in the above piece of holy text means strife of any description. It could mean heresy, apostasy, civil war between Muslim groups, deviation of shari'ah law or anything else a swivel-eyed loon could take exception to.

It was the Second Fitna, a civil war ending in 692, that split the Islamic world into the mutually heretical Sunni & Shi'ite factions of Islam. Since heresy is fitna &, perforce, worse than slaughter, Sunnis & Shi'ites have been slaughtering each other ever since. That is 95% of Islam's pitiful existence. The latest round of this slaughter has occurred in & around Baghdad today, es reported by Reuters:

Islamic State bomber kills nine at Baghdad mosque

A suicide bomb attack claimed by Islamic State killed at least nine people following Friday prayers at a Shi'ite Muslim mosque in southwestern Baghdad, police and hospital sources said.

A second suicide attacker at the mosque in al-Radwaniya district was shot and killed by security forces before he could set off his explosives, the police sources said.

A separate bomb went off in the district of Abu Ghraib, west of Baghdad, killing two and wounding nine, security and medical sources said.

Islamic State was behind the larger attack, which also wounded at least 25 others, according to Amaq news agency, which supports the group. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the second blast.

The rise of the ultra-hardline Sunni Muslim group, which is battling government forces over control of vast territory in northern and western Iraq, has exacerbated a long-running sectarian conflict, mostly between Shi'ites and Sunnis, that emerged after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

The Iraqi government has retaken several major cities from Islamic State in the past year and slowly pushed the militants back towards the Syrian border. The authorities have said they want to recapture the northern city of Mosul this year, but Iraqi officials privately question whether that is possible.

Women Resisting Rapejihad Executed in Mosul.

'Narrated Buraida: The Prophet sent Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the booty) & I hated Ali, & Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a slave-girl from the Khumus). I said to Khalid, "Don't you see this (ie Ali)?" When we reached the Prophet I mentioned that to him. He said, "O Buraida! Do you hate Ali?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Do you hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumus."' So Islam's most authoritative compilation of ahadith, Sahih Bukhari, tells us in volume five, book 59, number 637.

We see here that the rape of female captives was a normal thing for Mohammed & his followers. Because this disgusting wretch is the prophet of Islam & its model for moral behaviour we see Muslims emulating him the world over. You might be wondering what happens to any woman who resists the advances of a soldier of Allah. Read this article from The International Business Times today & you'll find out:

ISIS Executes At Least 250 Women For Refusing 'Temporary Marriage' In Iraq's Mosul

The Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, has executed at least 250 women in northern Iraqi city of Mosul in Nineveh province for refusing sex slavery, according to reports Wednesday. The women had been ordered to accept "temporary marriages" to the militants, and were all put to death after their refusal.

Said Mamuzini, an official from the Kurdistan Democratic Party, told the AhlulBayt News Agency that sometimes the families of the women were also executed for rejecting to submit. Ghayas Surchi, another official, from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, told the news agency that women are not allowed to go out alone in Mosul and are required to be completely covered in public. Surchi said that women are also barred from choosing their spouses.

Mosul, the ISIS stronghold, has been under ISIS rule since June 2014.

Earlier this year, it was reported that several teachers and civil servants in Mosul were executed by the ISIS for refusing to follow a new curriculum the militants had introduced to schools. The militants also raided schools and arrested dozens of teachers from Nineveh province for refusing to teach their students the new curriculum. ISIS reportedly removed major subjects, including math, biology, chemistry and philosophy, from school curriculums across Syria and Iraq and replaced them with lessons on jihad and the history of ISIS.

"These essential courses have been replaced by some extremist subjects on so-called Shariah and jihad, designed by the group to ideologize students and gain their support to the alleged caliphate," a teacher said told AhlulBayt at the time.

The Iraqi army has begun preparatory operations in Nineveh against the militants. However, the actual assault to retake Mosul is expected to take place possibly not until next year.

Obama
On Monday, United States President Barack Obama said that he expects Mosul to be retaken from ISIS "eventually."

"As we see the Iraqis willing to fight and gaining ground, let's make sure that we're providing them more support," Obama said, in an interview to CBS News, according to Agence France-Presse. "We're not doing the fighting ourselves, but when we provide training, when we provide special forces who are backing them up, when we are gaining intelligence -- working with the coalitions that we have -- what we've seen is that we can continually tighten the noose," he added.

"My expectation is that by the end of the year, we will have created the conditions whereby Mosul will eventually fall."
