I don’t hold with all that the Britain First organisation stand for but, to give them their due, they have really come up with a cracker in this educational leaflet about Islamic Grooming gangs.
It is a really powerful and well put together leaflet and really deserves to be widely distributed especially to parents who may be concerned about ‘on street grooming’.
There is a problem with the grooming of under-age girls and vulnerable young women with this ‘on street grooming’ being perpetrated primarily it appears by members of the UK Islamic community. It is a problem that people need to be concerned about, and most likely comes from the Islamic idea that women are virtually creatures of a lesser god, to be exploited as men see fit. However, remember not every individual Muslim is a nonce or a potential nonce. The fault lies with the Islamic religious and cultural idea that promotes such attitudes to women, not with those who have cast off such attitudes but who just happen to be Muslim.
Looking at the statistics for Islamic grooming gangs is frightening. The amount of organised sexual abuse that is going on is appalling, and there is a fair chance that our councillors and social services have shied away from tacking the problems for fear of stirring up violence both from the Islamic community and from those non Muslims appalled by the abuse.
Of course no sensible person wants street violence and it is something that must be avoided. However to avoid stoking tensions between different communities it is vital that these abusers, from whatever community, are apprehended by the Police and dealt with appropriately by the Courts. The Police, the justice system, local government and Whitehall needs to be made aware of people’s concerns and start to take action.
It doesn’t hurt to be educated about potential problems such as street grooming, even if these problems are caused by members of an ethnic minority. Dissembling about a problem, or the scale of a problem or brushing the problem under the carpet, as some in authority appear to have done, in places like Rochdale, does NOT make the problem go away. The lack of openess just makes things worse and increases suspicions.
Grooming gangs are a societal sickness, and the cure is the use of education and Law.
Here’s the leaflet, open it, read it, print it out and give a copy to a friend.
Also a more detailed publication from the same organisation on the same subject.
Some tunes need to be played loud and some bits of campaigning literature, like this one, deserve a wider audience, despite where they come from. There is a problem, and we need to press our politicians both local and national, to address it.
