One in three British Jews have become so fearful of anti-Semitic attacks they have considered moving abroad, and four in five believe that the Labour Party harbours anti-Semites in its ranks.
The Antisemitism Barometer, conducted by the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) in partnership with YouGov, found that those considering leaving the UK due to anti-Semitism rose from 28 per cent in 2015 to 31 per cent two years later.
Black activists in the United Kingdom are vowing not to be silent and are preparing to fight against what they argue is a blatant assault on the rights of that country’s Black citizens to decide their own destiny and determine for themselves who they have a right to listen to and seek guidance from. And Blacks in the UK, want to hear from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.
These sentiments were expressed in the aftermath of a decision to prohibit a videotaped message by the beloved leader from being broadcast during the African International Day of Action, a cultural gathering to promote unity and upliftment. The event was co-sponsored by the Rastafari Movement UK and the Nation of Islam’s London mosque and was held at Kennington Park.
Statistics obtained by the Press Association indicate the flurry of incidents this year, in which dozens of victims were killed or injured, prompted a spike in the volume of information passed to authorities by members of the public.
Ms Champion came under fire after writing an article in The Sun newspaper, under the provocative headline: ‘British Pakistani men ARE raping and exploiting white girls – and it’s time we faced up to it’
Labour’s Shadow equalities minister Sarah Champion has resigned from her frontbench position following a row over an article she wrote in the Sun newspaper, claiming British Pakistani men are “raping and exploiting white girls”.
In a statement the Rotherham MP said she apologised for any offence cause by “the extremely poor choice of words” which appeared in the tabloid newspaper five days’ ago.
“I am concerned that my continued position in the Shadow Cabinet would distract from the crucial issues around child protection which I have campaigned on my entire political career,” she added. “It is therefore with regret that I tender my resignation as Shadow Secretary of State for women and equalities.”
A good woman who deserves respect, the Labour party knows no shame.
A man who was arrested after stripping off in public to reveal his torso scrawled with the words “stop Muslim grooming gangs” has accused the government of failing to do enough to tackle anti-white racism.
Unemployed Jimmy Lamb, 24, took his shirt off in Newcastle and then in Gateshead town centers last week to reveal the slogans. His protest came after 18 Asian men were jailed for abusing girls as young as 14.
A police officer has denied assaulting a race relations adviser who was allegedly shot with a stun gun.
PC Claire Boddie appeared at Taunton magistrates court to face a charge of assault by beating contrary to section 39 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988. The charge arises from an incident in which Judah Adunbi, 63, was allegedly shot with the stun gun in Easton, Bristol, on 14 January.
Newcastle has joined a list of British cities where grooming gangs, made up of predominantly Pakistani Muslim men, systematically rape and abuse vulnerable, white girls.
A nationwide pattern emerged after the first prosecutions in Rotherham, and then Rochdale, where a “culture of silence” and political correctness led to inaction by authorities who feared being called “racist”.
It is a pattern we simply cannot ignore. In no fewer than 16 British towns and cities, grooming gangs have been prosecuted for raping young females since 2011, culminating last week in the conviction of 17 men and one woman at Newcastle Crown Court.
With the exception of two cases the perpetrators were from South Asian backgrounds. All but three victims were young white girls.
As the Chief Crown Prosecutor who brought the cases against the Rochdale grooming gang in 2012, I’ve come to know a disturbing amount about this crime.
Will South Asian communities condemn these atrocities – and take the necessary action? I’m not convinced. As for wider society, we must start to understand what drives this abuse if we want to stop it. Child grooming is happening under our noses – everywhere. At bus stops, in takeaways, on street corners. But we walk past, because we don’t see what’s happening. And neither do we see the attitudes driving it.
In particular, the appalling misogyny fuelling the growth of grooming gangs has barely been discussed.
A Sikh cable television channel has been accused of encouraging victims of grooming to take justice into their own hands and rely on vigilante violence rather than the police.
Ofcom, the broadcasting regulator, said it had received a complaint that a drama broadcast on the Birmingham-based Sikh Channel had “advocated retaliatory violence as acceptable”.
The complaint concerned a 50-minute drama produced by Sikh Youth UK telling the story of a young female Sikh student groomed by a Muslim man called Abdul, the Birmingham Mail reported.
Ofcom said in a letter to the channel that the film broadcast on May 20 suggested sexual assaults against Sikhs should not be reported to the police “but rather should be referred to the Sikh community for action.”
