The former leader of an Islamist terror group has won his legal battle to sue MI5 and MI6 for hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation over his detention and attempted deportation to Libya.
Ismail Kamoka, 51, who now works at the London embassy of the western and UN-backed Libyan government, was jailed in the UK in 2007 after admitting funding the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and providing false passports.
Britain’s security services considered the group, which was set up to overthrow Colonel Gaddafi, to be a “risk to the national security of the United Kingdom.”
The vast majority of men convicted of grooming young white girls – 84 per cent – are of Asian origin, according to a report to be published this week.
The study by the renowned counter-extremism think-tank Quilliam says that of these, seven in ten are believed to be of Pakistani-Muslim heritage.
Asian gangs have deliberately abused white girls because they hold entrenched racist attitudes towards them as being ‘easy targets’ for sex, according to the report, which is based on the testimonies of convicted Asian men during court hearings.
The failure of certain parts of the Asian community to integrate into British society has led to gangs of British Pakistani Muslim men targeting white women with drink and drugs before raping and sexually abusing them, an anti-extremism think tank claims.
The failure of Asian communities to integrate into British society has led to gangs of Muslim men targeting white women with drink and drugs before raping and sexually abusing them, an anti-extremism think tank claims.
The report by Quilliam calls for greater support to help integrate British Pakistani people into modern British society.
It says that the gangs of mainly British-Pakistani men “have been influenced by the cultural conditions of their home country and a wider failure of British society to integrate these men into their adoptive culture.”
Whose fault? What “adoptive culture”? Islam demands its adherents be settlers not immigrants, the goal is the imposition of Islam not integration.

Would-be Labour councillor claims there is no such thing as ISIS in string of controversial Facebook posts
The woman at the centre of a 60 Minutes defamation case broke down while describing how she was forced to take a virginity test at a Jordan hospital when she was 13.
Nadia Tabbaa testified that despite telling the doctor she had not been with a man, the test purported to find she was not a virgin, leading to her being beaten by her father and brother Omar.
When she asked her brother to repeat her denial to their father, she said he replied: ‘He believes you because if he didn’t you’d be dead’.
Thousands of residents of a largely Hindu area of Leicester have objected to a proposed Muslim prayer room and education centre.

The Manchester suicide bomber visited a jailed jihadi friend in a British prison just months before he murdered 22 people in a suicide bomb attack.
Salman Abedi, 23, visited disabled Abdalraouf Abdallah, 24, while he was serving time for terrorism offences last year.
Abdalraouf was an ISIS recruiter who used used Skype and encrypted messaging apps to help terrorists source guns and cash and get from the UK to Syria undetected.
His older brother Mohammed, 26, is a suspected ISIS sniper and was today convicted of travelling to fight for the militants in the Middle East.
Pakistani Islamism – Flowing Into The United Kingdom
Will the UK become another Pakistan? The definitive answer is yes. The only question is when. In November of 2017, Islamists from the Sufi school of Islam laid siege to Islamabad for three weeks on the issue of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat (“finality of the prophethood of Muhammad”), a belief that is part of Islamic shari’a’s blasphemy laws. The ideas articulated by Islamists in Pakistan are being preached in British towns and Europe – publicly and in mass rallies, as discussed below. In an earlier article, I have defined Islam as a movement of ideas, Islamism as the peaceful methodology of Islam and jihadism as the weaponised version of Islamism.
In recent decades, Ahmadi Muslims, pejoratively dismissed by clerics as Qadianis and persecuted by the Pakistani state and society, have found shelter in the UK. Ahmadi Muslims will be at the receiving end of Pakistani Islamism flowing into the UK because they are accused, inaccurately, by Islamists of not believing Muhammad to be the last prophet. Ahmadis do believe that Muhammad was the last prophet, but also argue, much like the Sufis do, that God talks to and mediates with mystics. However, the Islamists – Deobandis or Sufis – have determined that Ahmadis are guilty of blasphemy by not believing in Muhammad to be the last prophet.
According to US-based SITE monitoring website, the terror group is calling on its supporters to carry out attacks on the US and its allies in response to the move by the Republican firebrand.
Opposition is mounting to a planned visit to the UK by a leading American conservative evangelical Christian who has made Islamophobic and anti-gay statements, with critics saying it will promote prejudice and damage interfaith relations.
Several MPs, including a government minister, have urged the home secretary to consider refusing UK entry to Franklin Graham, with some suggesting his comments contravene British laws on hate speech. A petition against Graham being granted a visa has gathered more than 4,600 signatures.
Nina Parker, the pastor of Liberty church in Blackpool and the organiser of the petition, said: “As a Christian and as a leader of a church that particularly welcomes LGBT people, I’m horrified that other local churches are inviting someone with this record of hate speech.”
“…For sure, there are still people going around in the central areas self-expressing, but London has shrunk as a city. Too many of its areas and boroughs have been taken over by religious bigots and Third World tribes. Let me be perfectly clear. I am a fan of cultures, no matter how barbaric. I think every culture has the right to survive, but not all cultures belong on the same piece of land. What’s happening in London just now will end up in a land grab and a divide. If you have so many people wanting to live under sharia law and so many Muslim mayors and MPs, as we currently do, then the country can only look forward to a divided future. The East End of London (Shadwell, Stepney Green, Whitechapel, all the way out to Bromley by Bow) looks like Bangladesh meets Pakistan. If you head northwest, you will think you are in first Turkey and then Somalia. The self expression, the autonomy of movement, sexuality, and dress are disappearing fast and are being replaced with religious and tribal garb.”
Speaking to diplomats and experts at the Foreign Office in London, Johnson will call for better engagement with Muslim populations worldwide and argue that blaming Western intervention for the rise of Islamist extremism plays into the jihadi narrative, according to a briefing note issued by the Foreign Office.
“Better engagement” can have several definitions.
