But she warns against “Islamophobia,” which she claims will make more young Muslims become jihad terrorists and join Muslim rape gangs. She makes some ridiculous equivalence arguments between the Qur’an and the Bible, as if Britain were beset by Christian rape gangs quoting the Old Testament, and charges that those who note, as she does here, that the rape of Infidel women by Muslim men is sanctioned in Islam (see the Qur’an’s passages about the “captives of the right hand,” i.e., sex slaves: 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30) are only making matters worse by stoking “Islamophobia.” That is arrant nonsense, of course, as one cannot solve a problem adequately except by knowing and addressing its root causes, but of course including this twaddle in the article, and indeed, making it the article’s focal point, was the only way that these revelations about Muslim rapists’ quoting the Qur’an and believing their activities were justified in Islam were ever going to be published in the Independent.
I’m a Rotherham grooming gang survivor. I call myself a survivor because I’m still alive. I’m part of the UK’s largest ever child sexual abuse investigation.
As a teenager, I was taken to various houses and flats above takeaways in the north of England, to be beaten, tortured and raped over 100 times. I was called a “white slag” and “white c**t” as they beat me.
They made it clear that because I was a non-Muslim, and not a virgin, and because I didn’t dress “modestly”, that they believed I deserved to be “punished”. They said I had to “obey” or be beaten.
Fear of being killed, and threats to my parents’ lives, made it impossible for me to escape for about a year. The police didn’t help me.
As I write this, it has been widely reported that a letter has been sent to Muslim groups around the country declaring a national “Punish a Muslim” day; elsewhere, the leaders of Britain First have been found guilty of religiously aggravated harassment.
In mainland Europe, conflict surrounding immigrants and refugees has been fuelled by stories of women being raped by migrants. People have been calling for violent attacks against “any Muslims” and have declared “war on Islam”.
