Another Day, Another Muslim Child Rape Ring in the UK

Monday, March 9th, 2015

“As many as 373 children may have been targeted for sex by gangs of men in Oxfordshire in the last 16 years, a serious case review found.”

All the men were from “Muslim backgrounds”.

It’s infuriating that political correctness and fears of offending Muslim sensitivities have caused so many officials to repeatedly look the other way and fail to investigate child rape cases in the UK. As in Rotherham, the officials that let this happen should end up in prison.

Rotherham was disturbing enough. To find out that there was another another Muslim child rape ring operating in the UK (albeit one with only one-third the victims) rather staggers the moral imagination. It also begs the question: How many more Muslim child rape gangs in the UK remain to be uncovered?

Pat Condell: “Jews are being driven out of Europe by Muslim anti-Semitism”

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Once again, Pat Condell cuts right to the heart of the matter progressive multiculturalists desperately seek to obfuscate.


“Not all Muslims hate Jews, but crucially the religion of Islam does hate them.”

“Every anti-Israel rally that’s full of Muslims quickly turns into an anti-Jewish hate fest. Pointing this out does not make me or anyone else a racist. However, denying it in the face of the evidence does make you a coward and a liar, especially if you call yourself a journalist.”

“Yet we in Europe are busy importing this mentality wholesale as part of our multicultural rainbow coalition of suicidal stupidity and moral cowardice.”

“The number of Jews leaving France for Israel is doubling every year.”

“In fact Jews are the new Jews. Muslims are the new Nazis.”

Watch the whole thing.

Thoughts on Rape in Sweden

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Pat Condell offers some pungent thoughts on the connection between mass Muslim immigration and rising rape statistics in Sweden:

Is Sweden the rape capital of Europe? Indeed, this BBC report confirms it, though they claim that it’s an artifact of how the statistics are kept.

However, I’m finding a hard time finding official statistics to verify what percentage of rapes are committed by immigrants or by the children of immigrants. (I have seen these statistics referred to in some discussions, but have not been able to locate them directly.) There does seem to be evidence that immigrants are “five times more likely to be investigated for sex crimes.” But that’s from 2005. Are Muslims committing the majority of rapes in Sweden? It seems entirely possible, but I don’t want to fall prey to my own confirmation bias.

Of course, since Sweden has fined Michael Hess for making a connection between Islam and rape, one can understand why published statistics could be hard to come by. Especially since “the question of whether Michael Hess’s statement is true, or at least for Michael Hess appeared to be true, is irrelevant to the proceedings.”

Anyone have any better sources?

Shockingly, Bill Maher Makes Sense on Gaza

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Here’s something from the “Blind Squirrel Find Acorn” department: Bill Maher actually making sense on Israel’s incursion into Gaza.

Some choice quotes:

“If Hamas had the opportunity, they would kill the maximum number of Israelis, which would be all. And Israel has the capability to kill a lot more and they do not. They seem victims of the soft bigotry of high expectations.”

“Can we ask why Israel wins all the time? Because they’ve won every war. They have to. You can’t go 8-1 and be Israel. You have to go 8-0 every year to still exist.”

“Jews have 155 Nobel Prizes and Muslims have two. Maybe it’s who you know, but that seems a big advantage for Team Hebrew.”

Egypt’s Death Toll: 500 and Rising

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

And the violence continues apace in Egypt. Egypt’s government cracking down on the Muslim Brotherhood, the brotherhood looting government buildings and attacking the Christian Coptic minority. And assaulting the occasional journalist taking their picture.

Looking for insight as to what Obama should do? Sorry, all out of insight today. The best thing to do is stay the hell out of the way, make the usual meaningless appeals for calm as a sop to the “international community,” and let things run their course. Which seems to be pretty much what Obama is doing, either through calculation, incompetence, or indifference.

This, in fact, is the way politics is conducted in the Middle East: Two factions kill each other until one is weakened enough to stop fighting. It’s in our interest to see as many of the Bad Guys (Muslim Brotherhood) killed by the Not Nearly As Bad Guys (Egyptian military) as possible.

Sorry I couldn’t be more cheerful. Here’s a cute dog video compilation to make up for it.

Egypt Update for July 1, 2013

Monday, July 1st, 2013

The big Egypt news today, just in case you hadn’t seen it:

  • Widespread protests estimated at 17 million people have called for the ouster of Mohammed Morsi and his violent, corrupt, incompetent Muslim Brotherhood from power.
  • The Egyptian Military has given Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood 48 hours to meet people’s demands or Eddie Murphy goes back to prison the military will step in and impose their own solution.
  • There have been scattered reporters that some police have gone over to the protesters’ side.
  • Protesters have burned and ransacked Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Cairo.
  • The MSM seemed to largely ignore the story over the weekend and is now playing catchup.
  • Some links:

  • This point by point breakdown of the last three years isn’t awful.
  • Thanks to Obama’s bungling middle east policy, protesters now hate the U.S. more than ever. “We are very critical of the Obama administration because they have been supporting the Brotherhood like no one has ever supported them.”
  • When I read these sorts of Egypt is finally ready for Democracy pieces, I want to believe them, but I just don’t. I do believe the Egyptian people are ready to kick the Muslim Brotherhood to the curb, but I’m not yet convinced a majority there (or in any Arab nation) want a constitutional democracy and the rule of law.
  • Walter Russell Mead thinks that Egypt is just coming apart.
  • He, in turn, links to this New Yorker piece.

    In conversations with opposition politicians over the past six months, I have been struck by two things: their vehement hatred of the Brotherhood, and their inability to articulate solutions to the country’s problems. People speak in vague terms about social justice and democratic values. I have yet to meet a politician with a substantive plan to overhaul a system of food and fuel subsidies that eats up almost one third of the budget, or to reform the education sector, or to stimulate foreign investment….

    After two years of watching politicians on both sides of the fence squabble and prevaricate and fail to improve their lives, Egyptians appear to be rejecting representative democracy, without having had much of a chance to participate in it. In a country with an increasingly repressive regime and no democratic culture to draw on, protest has become an end in itself—more satisfying than the hard work of governance, organizing, and negotiation. This is politics as emotional catharsis, a way to register rage and frustration without getting involved in the system.

    Egypt’s High Court Declares Parliment Invalid

    Thursday, June 14th, 2012

    “Egypt’s highest court declared the parliament invalid Thursday, and the country’s interim military rulers promptly declared full legislative authority.”

    Well, things are about to get very interesting indeed. Does the Muslim Brotherhood think it can take on the army in a full-blown civil war? I tend to doubt it, if only because potential sources of money and arms outside the country are somewhat preoccupied with the Syrian civil war right now (on both sides). On the other hand, this is as close to real power as the Muslim brotherhood has ever tasted; they may not want to give up without a fight.

    The Guardian is providing live updates.

    LinkSwarm for March 27, 2012

    Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

    News! in tiny, bite-sized portions!

  • Kay Bailey Hutchison tries to walk back her comments, unsuccessfully. She says she opposes abortion, but supports taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. That’s like saying you support the Second Amendment, but also support the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. You can believe one or the other, but not both at the same time.
  • Hey, how about sending some of that military surplus to the Mexican border?
  • Even The New York Times has noticed the absurdity of the Obama Administration’s position on ObamaCare: “The Justice Department is essentially arguing that the penalty is not a tax, except when the government says it is one.”
  • “Europe will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz.” The new Europe will be Judenfrei.
  • Escape from North Korea.
  • Thanks to Muslim pressure, SUNY Stony Brook will no longer celebrate Good Friday, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, or Passover.
  • Speaking of New York, here’s another case of insider looting at a Brooklyn hospital. (Hat tip: Dwight.)
  • Still no signs of Global Warming.
  • This Week in Jihad for March 3, 2011

    Another week, another Jihad roundup. I’m not sure I can keep up…

  • Both sides suck in Libya.
  • Moammar Gadhafi’s top ten international ass-kissing toadies.
  • The man who threatened South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone is sentenced to 25 years in prison for trying to join a terrorist group. “Screw you, hippie Jihaddi!”
  • There’s one unqualified success story in the Middle East that Arab countries could use as a template to improve their societies. The problem? It’s Israel.
  • Member of the Muslim Brotherhood says that peace treaties between Egypt and Israel are null and void.
  • Our kids may play Cops-and-Robbers or Cowboys-and-Indians. Pakistani children play suicide bomber.

  • Daniel Pipes (hardly a pushover) is cautiously optimistic about events in the Middle East.
  • Another reason to get tough with Somali pirates: One fifth of their money goes to jihadests.
  • Mosques in London start putting up “Gay Free Zone signs.
  • Here’s a good place to start cutting the budget deficit: u.S. government spends $770 million to restore mosques in the Middle East.
  • A Muslim might have converted to Christianity? That’s a school burning.
