UK: Record number of Muslim women arrested on terror charges in the last year

A RECORD number of women terrorism suspects were arrested in Britain in the past year, official figures have revealed.

Thirty-six were held as part of counterterrorism investigations in the 12 months to the end of March.

A rising number of youngsters are also being detained. Under-18s are the only age group to show a rise in arrests year on year – increasing from eight to 14.

Overall, there were 255 terrorism-related arrests in 2015-16, a drop of 15 per cent compared with the previous year when there were a record 301.

    Me thinks a more appropriate label on the picture is “Not Wanted”

    But of course Canada’s leftist media takes a different approach to the religion of pieces. Its Canada Day edition has a heart warming story on muslim relatives with bags over their heads thanking Canada for letting them in. And it is outraged this morning on its website. A drunk driving charge was thrown out of court, because the police kept the drunk’s turban for three hours. RACISM IS RAMPANT IN CANADA!

      Wait for the first depressed man strangling himself with his turban, and then there will be a huge outcry about the police failing to protect the dead man from himself and allowing him access to tools of suicide. I look forward to the day the police come equipped with friable paper turbans to keep everyone’s rights intact. Oh wait, I can imagine a future headline: “Police steal turban, throw toilet paper roll at prisoner to wear on head instead”. OK, now I have no solutions.

      The only kind they’d be willing to talk about, “Look how muslimas are breaking the glass ceiling in a male-dominated field! You go girl!”
