Belgian right-wingers offer 250 euros to anyone who reports veiled woman to police

Ban on burqas first introduced by Belgium’s government last year
Move follows riot sparked by arrest of a woman for wearing the full face covering

Belgian right-wingers have offered to pay a bounty to anyone who reports a veiled woman to police.
The Vlaams Belang political party made the 250 euros (£200) offer today in the wake of face veil riots in Brussels.
Filip Dewinter, a senior figure within the right-wing party, told Reuters the riots had made police apprehensive about enforcing the burqa ban.
He claimed that the payment should put pressure on authorities to further enforce it.
Mr Dewinter said: ‘It’s a textile prison for the women who have to live under it.’
The anti-immigration nationalist party’s stunt follows protesters hurling bins and metal barriers at a Brussels police station last week.
The riot broke out after a Muslim woman was arrested for refusing to remove her face veil, or niqab.
A Brussels police spokesman said he was unaware of the money being offered.
But added that any officer who sees a woman wearing a niqab would issue a penalty.
He said: ‘When someone is breaking the law we always have to intervene, demonstrations or no, the niqab is prohibited.’
Women in Belgium risk a maximum fine of 150 euros (£120) if they wear a full face veil in public.
Mr Dewinter said he was not aware how many people had already responded to the offer of a bounty.
A spokeswoman for Belgium’s federal police said the legality of the bounty was a question for the judiciary, but if someone felt insulted by it they could file a complaint with the police.
Police in Belgium are investigating last week’s riots and arrested 13 members of the Islamist group Sharia4Belgium on Sunday, the police spokesman said.
Sharia4Belgium was not immediately available for comment.
Belgium and France both banned the wearing of full veils in public last year.
Nicolas Sarkozy, who was French president when the ban was brought in, had commented that the outfits oppress women were ‘not welcome’ in France.
Canada announced in December that new citizens had to remove any face coverings, including the niqab and burqa, when they take the oath of citizenship.

Social workers hid fact they knew teenage mother was at risk from sex grooming gangs SIX YEARS before she was brutally murdered

Laura Wilson, 17, from Rotherham had been groomed for sex by a string of British Pakistani men
She was stabbed and thrown into a canal to die for informing her abusers’ families of their sexual relationships
Council published review of her case but redacted key passages which reveal they knew she was at particular risk from Asian men

Social workers knew for six years that a teenage mother, murdered for bringing shame on the families of two Pakistani men who had used her for sex, was at clear risk from predatory Asian gangs.
Laura Wilson, 17, from Rotherham had been groomed by a string of British Pakistanis before she was stabbed and thrown into a canal to die for informing her abusers’ families of the sexual relationships.
Her killer Ashtiaq Asghar, who was 18 at the time, was given a life sentence and will serve a minimum of 17-and-a-half years after he pleaded guilty to murdering Laura in October 2010.
But it has now emerged that Rotherham County Council’s social services were well aware she was at risk and had received information about certain adults suspected of targeting her from the age of 11.

Last week the council’s Safeguarding Children Board published a serious case review but key passages which reveal they knew she was at particular risk from ‘Asian men’ had been blocked out with black lines.
The council went to court in an attempt to tried to suppress the hidden information after a uncensored copy of the report was leaked to the Times newspaper but they have now abandoned legal action.
The uncensored report confirms that Laura, identified as Child S, had dealings with 15 agencies and identified ‘numerous missed opportunities’ to protect her.
It states that she eventually became ‘almost invisible’ to care professionals.
WHAT THEY TRIED TO HIDE…
That Laura had been referred to a child exploitation project just three months after her 11th birthday.
That at one point she had been ‘taken into a car with men who encouraged her to drink alcohol’.
That when Laura was 13, she and a friend ‘were given alcohol by men at a local takeaway and were asked what they were going to give them in return’ and that her mother had immediately notified the police
That her mother ‘was shocked when it looked as though Child S was involved with older men ‘ and that ‘she had tried to get the police and social care to do something about it.’
Another censored passage which read: ‘At the centre of the Child S case is the issue of Child S’s potential involvement in sexual exploitation.
Details hidden included the knowledge that at the age of 13 Laura and a friend had been given alcohol by men at a takeaway who then asked what she would give them in return.
She had also been referred to a child sexual exploitation project just three months after her 11th birthday.
Another censored passage reveals that Laura had been ‘mentioned’ during a 2009 police inquiry that eventually led to the conviction of five Pakistani men for sex offences against three underage girls.
While the published report mentioned the fact that a friend, who Laura knew when she was 10, was ‘thought to have become involved in sexual exploitation’, it concealed the succeeding passage which read: ‘with particular reference to Asian men’.
Laura was murdered in October 2010. She was repeatedly knifed by 18-year-old Ashtiaq Asghar before pushed her into a South Yorkshire Canal, where he used the point of the knife to force her head below the surface as she fought to stay alive.
Asghar was furious after the young mother revealed details of their sexual relationship to his Muslim family and was on ‘a mission to kill’.
He exchanged a series of texts with married friend and mentor Ishaq Hussain, 22, who had also had an affair with Laura, and who the judge described as a man who regarded white girls as ‘sexual targets, not human beings’.
In one message, sent a day before he killed Miss Wilson, Asghar wrote: ‘I’m gonna send that kuffar (non-Muslim) bitch straight to Hell.’
In another he wrote: ‘I need to do a mission.’ He talked of buying a pistol and ‘making some beans on toast’, a reference to spilling blood used in Four Lions, a satirical film about suicide bombers.
Asghar is serving life in prison after he pleaded guilty to murder and was jailed for life. Mr Hussain was acquitted of murder by joint enterprise after a retrial.
Sentencing Asghar, Lord Justice Davis told him: ‘I take the view you came under the influence of Mr Hussain who is something of a mentor to you.
‘He seems to have regarded girls, white girls, simply as sexual targets. He does not treat them as human beings at all. You got into that mindset yourself.
‘You no doubt once had feelings for Laura but treated her with contempt in the latter stages.’

In 2007, when Laura was 13, she and her family appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show. During the programme – about out-of-control children – her sister warned her that ‘your attitude is going to get you in big danger’.
Workers at a child sexual exploitation project later sent a report to social services, but no action was taken to remove her from what became a continuing spiral of sexual abuse.
By the time she was 16, she had embarked on an affair with Mr Hussain, who was then 20 and already married.
She gave birth to a daughter in June last year, but Mr Hussain refused to accept that the child was his.
Four months later, and just days before she was murdered on October 12, she ‘shamed’ Asghar and Mr Hussain by informing their families of her relationship with both men.
She told Asghar’s mother she loved her son and ‘wanted to have babies’ by him. But Mrs Asghar was furious and attempted to hit Miss Wilson with a shoe, branding her ‘a dirty white bitch’ who should ‘keep your legs closed’, the trial was told.
Alan Hazell, Chair of the Rotherham Local Safeguarding Children Board, said: ‘We refute in the strongest possible terms any suggestion that information was redacted from the published report for any reason other than to protect the interests of Laura’s daughter, immediate family and other third parties.’
In a statement following the publication of the review Mr Hazell denied that more could have been done to save Laura.
He said: ‘This is a wide ranging study which shows a very complex situation surrounding Child S and her child which made it difficult for agencies to engage with her.
‘There is no suggestion that anyone could have saved Child S from what ultimately happened to her but clearly her care could have been improved.

There were chances for those agencies to be more proactive in how they dealt with the case and all agencies involved accept that and apologise that the standards of service were not as high as they should have been.
‘It is vital that agencies learn from what happened here and there is clearly a commitment in Rotherham to make that happen. As the report comments, there are already many initiatives in place to ensure that services are now improved.’
Last month following the trial of nine men, mainly of Pakistani origin, who were found guilty of raping and abusing up to 47 girls – some as young as 13 – after plying them with drink and drugs Tory cabinet minister Baroness Warsi hit out at the ‘small minority’ of Pakistani men who see white girls as ‘fair game’ for sexual abuse.
She told London’s Evening Standard newspaper: ‘There is a small minority of Pakistani men who believe that white girls are fair game.
‘And we have to be prepared to say that. You can only start solving a problem if you acknowledge it first.
‘This small minority who see women as second class citizens, and white women probably as third class citizens, are to be spoken out against.’

Defiant Rushdie says he ‘didn’t write Verses for the mullahs’

Posted in islam with tags , , , , , on June 5, 2012 by britishloyalist

Over two decades after Satanic Verses sparked a never-ending controversy and provoked a fatwa for his head, author Salman Rushdie has only one thing to say to his detractors: ‘I did not write it for the mullahs.’

Author Salman Rushdie


The India-born controversial writer, who has lived for years under the shadow of his 1988 book, now liberally jokes about the issue.
Speaking at the Hay Festival of Literature and the Art in London, the 64-year-old Rushdie said books are intended for people who like them. Joking about the fatwa during an interaction, he said he did not write it for the mullahs.
‘I didn’t think they were my target audience. The only thing worse than a bad review from the Ayatollah Khomeini would be a good review from the Ayatollah Khomeini,’ he remarked.
The author, who is best known for his Booker-winning marvel Midnight’s Children, said a book’s popularity did not depend on people’s dislike for it or the controversy it creates.
‘The reason why books endure is because there are enough people who like them. It’s the only reason why books last. It’s the people who love books that make them last, not the people who attack them,’ he said.
Satanic Verses sparked widespread outrage among Muslims when it came out in 1988 and even led to Khomeini, the Supreme Leader of Iran, issuing a fatwa calling for Rushdie’s death in 1989.
Later in the well-attended interaction, he said: ‘I don’t read my books. Once I’ve finished the many years it usually takes me to write them, I can’t bear to read them, because I’ve spent too long with them already. I’m not advertising them very well, am I?’

Sikhs and EDL protest against police sweeping muslim sex attack under the carpet

Posted in British Government, English Defence League, police and the legal system with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 30, 2012 by britishloyalist

Hundreds of members of the Luton Sikh community are protesting outside local police station amid claims police were failing to properly investigate a sex attack on a young woman.

Police said they were negotiating with the protesters staging the “sit down” protest outside the Buxton Road police station.

It comes after a young Sikh woman, who has not been identified, was reportedly beaten and sexually assaulted in the Bedfordshire town by a “Muslim man”.

On Wednesday night, Bedfordshire Police confirmed they were “in talks” with the protesters to try and “resolve the situation” amid fears of rising tensions.

Reports suggested that more than 300 locals were involved in the protest because of “lack of action” from police over Monday’s attack.

There were reports that members of the English Defence League were also among the crowd.

Prisoners under pressure to convert to Muslim ‘gang’

Posted in British Government, immigrants, islam UK, scum with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 30, 2012 by britishloyalist

Prisoners are under pressure to convert to an Islamic “gang” at a high-security jail, with non-Muslims in fear of violence just for cooking bacon, according to an official report.


Inmates at HMP Whitemoor told researchers commissioned by the Ministry of Justice that they changed their faith for protection or because they were bullied into it.
Prison guards said they had a policy of “appeasement” towards the powerful and growing Islamic population, particularly convicted terrorists who were feared to be recruiting future extremists.
Non-believers avoided confrontation with any Muslim in case it led to retribution from the wider group, and said they even avoided cooking pork or bacon in communal kitchens or undressing in the showers in case it caused offence.
The report, written by researchers at the Cambridge Institute of Criminology, said: “Conflict and tension existed between and within faith groups.
“There were some intimidating ‘heavy players’ among the Muslim population, who appeared to be orchestrating prison power dynamics rather than propagating or following the faith. Many physically powerful prisoners ‘re-established their outside identities’ as leaders in the prison and used their (newly acquired) faith status as a tool for establishing influence.
Non-Muslim prisoners described wearing underpants in the showers on some spurs (out of ‘respect’ and fear) and some Muslim prisoners described a form of intimidation exerted (‘they probably do feel shamed’) relating to cooking (especially frying bacon) in the kitchens.”
HMP Whitemoor is situated in a “remote Fenland town” far from most inmates’ families, and is home to 440 Category A and B prisoners, almost all of whom are serving more than 10 years behind bars and seven of home are convicted terrorists.
Opened in 1991, three years later it was the scene of an escape by six prisoners including some IRA members.
Following concerns over Islamic radicalisation in a 2008 report by inspectors, researchers visited Whitemoor between 2009 and 2010 to interview staff and inmates.
They found that more than a third (35 to 39 per cent) of prisoners are now Muslims, compared with 11 per cent across all jails.
Many of those they spoke to had converted while inside but they had mixed motivations for doing so, and not all had done so voluntarily.
Reasons included “seeking care and protection”, “gang membership” and “coercion” as well as “rebellion” since Islam was seen as the “underdog”.
Prisoners told the researchers that becoming Muslim was a “cover” for power and influence.
Loners including sex offenders gained safety from joining a large and dominant group, as fellow members would defend them.
Non-Muslims and prison officers claimed that it was an “organised gang” and a “protection racket” rather than a religion, which “glorified terrorist behaviour and exploited the fear related to it”.
Others said they had felt under pressure to convert, with people leaving Islamic literature in their cells and telling them to “read this”, or promising they would be safe from physical assault if they changed faith.
“The threat of assaults motivated by religious fanaticism or extremist ideology added weight to the atmosphere at Whitemoor.”
Guards said there were “proper Al-Qaeda” members in the jail, who were regarded with “awe” by younger inmates, but they avoided confrontation and had “runners” to do their bidding.
Some prisoners described the place as a “recruiting drive for the Taliban” and fertile ground for hatred and a new generation of extremists.
One inmate said he was targeted because he wore a Remembrance Day poppy and his brother served in the Army, with people shouting “your wife’s burning in hell because she’s not a Muslim” at him.
But it was also claimed that non-Muslims felt “envy” at the preferential treatment, including better food, given to Muslims.
The report concluded: “The new population mix, including younger, more black and minority ethnic and mixed race, and high numbers of Muslim prisoners, was disrupting established hierarchies in the prison. Social relations among prisoners had become complex and less visible. Too much power flowed among some groups of prisoners, with some real risks of serious violence. There were high levels of fear in the prison. In particular, there were tensions and fears relating to ‘extremism’ and ‘radicalisation’.
“More prominent, in practice, were pressures (and temptations) felt by some prisoners to convert to Islam. Conditions in the prison made participation in Islamic practices the most ‘available’ option for those looking for belonging, meaning, ‘brotherhood’, trust and friendship.”

Yaseen Ali Ege murder trial: Mother Sara Ege faints in dock

Posted in islam UK, Murders, Wales with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2012 by britishloyalist

A mother fainted in the dock when questioned about allegedly murdering her seven-year-old son and setting his body on fire to hide her crime.

Sara Ege, 32, of Pontcanna, Cardiff, who denies murder, passed out at Cardiff Crown Court when asked about beating her son Yaseen in July 2010.

She has previously told the jury her husband Yousuf, 38, killed their son.

She denies murder. Yousuf Ege denies causing his son’s death by failing to protect him. The case continues.

The court was cleared for half an hour while Mrs Ege was revived by doctors.

After recovering she said: “My husband is the killer. I did nothing wrong, I never hurt my son.

“Yousef was hitting me and Yaseen came in the middle and was saying: “Don’t hit mummy – don’t hit mummy.”

The court heard how Yaseen died of his injuries later the same day.

Police confession
Mrs Ege claimed that after Yaseen’s death, Yousef Ege left the house and his brother Nasser came to dispose of the body.

As her brother-in-law set light to her son’s body, she screamed and tried to stop him being burned, the court heard.

“Nasser then left and I dragged Yaseen from the fire and ran downstairs to call 999,” she said.

Mrs Ege claimed she was forced to confess to murder after a beating and threats from her brother-in-law.

The court heard Mrs Ege, originally from India, had an arranged marriage originally conceived and carried out over five days.

As a maths graduate she claims she expected a well educated and successful husband but found he was a postman and part-time taxi driver.

The court has previously heard that Yaseen was originally thought to have died in an accidental house fire.

However a post mortem examination showed he was dead before the fire started.

‘Fearful’
The jury has previously been told Mrs Ege was arrested by police and told them she had beat him to death and burned his body because the devil told her to do it.

But Mrs Ege told the court: “I was too scared of Yousef to tell the truth so I went along with his version of events.

“I was fearful for my life – they told me they would kill me if I didn’t do what they said, I didn’t have any choice.

“Yaseen was my little boy and I loved him to bits I would never have done anything to hurt him.”

Mrs Ege was cross examined by Peter Birkitt, representing her husband, who said: “You never meant to kill Yaseen, but when you found that you had you panicked.

“You didn’t know what to do and that’s why you burnt the evidence of what you had been doing.”

The case continues.

Benagli Immigrant in Court Over Somerset Child Sex Assaults

Posted in islam UK, Nonce cases with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2012 by britishloyalist

A Bengali immigrant has appeared in court charged with serious sexual offences against young girls in Street.

Muhammod Kamal Uddin, 40, currently resident at Colnbrook Immigration Centre, near London, was brought before South Somerset Magistrates in custody.

He was charged with four allegations of sexual assault on victims aged 11 and 12 on various dates between September 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010.

He did not enter pleas to any of the charges and prosecutor Chris Ansell said the matters were so serious that they must be dealt with at the crown court. The magistrates ordered the defendant to be sent straight to Taunton Crown Court to appear at a preliminary hearing on May 21. They refused an application for bail by defending solicitor Chris Ivory and remanded Uddin in custody.

Murdered Yasseen Ali’s father told detectives he had no knowledge of his son’s injuries

Posted in islam UK, Murders, Wales with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2012 by britishloyalist

The father of a murdered seven-year-old boy repeatedly told detectives in interviews that news of his son’s injuries came as a devastating shock to him.

Postal worker Yousef Ali Ege, 36, was emotional and struggled for words in the video interviews played to a jury at Cardiff Crown Court yesterday.

He told officers he had struggled to believe the details of the fractures to his son’s wrist, ribs, finger, skull and collar bone that prosecutors allege were caused by his wife Sara Ege, who denies murder, on the day young Yaseen Ali died.

“I can’t understand… I don’t know what to say… what can I say,” he said
“A doctor told me my son just passed away from the smoke without suffering any pain. Now it’s like my son suffered.

“He suffered and I didn’t know about it. I don’t know how any of those injuries appeared on him.

“I cannot believe Yaseen could have suffered like this.”
Prosecutors allege Ege must have known about the injuries caused before the fire at the family’s Cardiff home in July 2010 after which his son’s charred body was found.

Injuries found on the little boy’s body included earlier fractures which had healed and the severe abdominal damage which had split his bowel and killed him.

Asked over and over again, if he had caused them or if he knew who had, Ali repeated that he had known nothing until the findings of the post-mortem examination were revealed in disclosures read to him by his solicitor Matthew De Maid.

With Mr De Maid sitting beside him in the interview room the husband who also works as a taxi driver in the city repeatedly denied hitting Yaseen himself.

“No… No… I never hit Yaseen,” he said.

“He never complained about any pain. I was with him in the car every day taking him to school and other places he had to go.

“It is just shocking to me. I thought until now that my son passed because of the fire.

“My wife never told me about any injuries, the school never told me of any concerns, nobody picked it up. We all thought Yaseen was fit and well.

“If I had thought he was injured I would have spoken to Sara and we would have taken him to the doctor.”

Yousef Ege said the last time he saw his son, he had been standing in the hallway as he left the house some four hours before the 999 call was made by his wife to the fire service.

“He looked fine,” he said.

“He didn’t look as if he had any problems – he was just standing in the passage.”

A telephone call brought him back home as the emergency services were outside.

He said: “My wife was in the street wearing an oxygen mask. I was told Yaseen had already gone to the hospital. We went in another ambulance.”

His words were read and played on video recordings to a jury at Cardiff Crown Court yesterday, where Sara Ege, 31, the wife he married after an arranged meeting at her home in India denies murdering their child and perverting the course of justice by trying to burn his body.

Ege sits in the dock, some feet away from her, accused of failing to protect the little boy – a charge he denies.

Yaseen, whose teachers have said they noticed he was sometimes in pain and advised his mum he should see a doctor, died from what prosecutors say must have been more than one impact to his lower body.

The injuries caused were said by a pathologist to have set up a chain reaction which resulted in organ failure.

His charred body was recovered by firefighters who fought in vain to revive him on the front forecourt of the Ege’s home in Severn Road, Canton which has been described by prosecutor Ian Murphy QC as a ‘well appointed property’.

It was later discovered he had not inhaled any smoke but had been dead before the blaze started in his bedroom.

Sara Ege, a graduate in maths and statistics, who was a full time mum recovering from cancer and volunteer school helper, first told police she had been hitting Yaseen with a stick for some time.

She said she did not know why because he was such a good boy – and said she had burned his body to protect herself.

But she later withdrew that statement, instead blaming her husband for the injuries, saying he had threatened her.

She also said voices told her to start the fire she ignited with barbecue gel from their kitchen cupboard but then said someone else had done it.

Yousef Ege, one of a family of six from the Arab Emirates who settled in Cardiff when he was aged nine, told police he was present when his son was born prematurely and had a “perfect” relationship with him.

“Yaseen was my boy,” he said.

The day after his questioning, his solicitor handed a prepared statement to police which outlined his movements the day of the fire.

In it, Ege wrote: “I have a good relationship with my wife and my son – there is no violence in our family home.

“Yaseen had just moved to what we thought was a better school but did not go that day because he didn’t have a teddy to take their teddy bears’ picnic.

“He was happy whenever he went to school.

“I would like to add that we would never harm our family – we were so proud – it was everything to us.”

Returning to the catalogue of injuries noted on Yaseen’s body, he went on: “It is very distressing – I have thought about this all night and I can’t find words…

“I find it very difficult to take in – I can’t make sense of it.

“I have lost my son. I don’t know how my wife is… I find myself sitting in a police station trying to put words together.

“I cannot put words together.”

Drugs gang flooded Welsh university town with heroin

Posted in islam UK, police and the legal system, Wales with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2012 by britishloyalist

THE young leader of a drugs gang which flooded the university town of Aberystwyth with heroin was jailed for seven-and-a-half years yesterday.

Haroon Amir, 20, who because of his age will serve the first few months of his sentence in youth custody, commanded a network of dealers, Robin Rouch told Swansea Crown Court.

And Amir’s “chief lieutenant” – 21-year-old Adil Shah – was jailed for four years yesterday.

The close friends, both from Wolverhampton, had denied charges of possessing heroin with intent to supply and money laundering. They were convicted earlier this year by a jury.
The court heard Amir hit on the idea of supplying heroin from Wolverhampton to Aberystwyth where previously there had been a “paucity of supply”.

Mr Rouch said Amir kept a close watch on the drugs operation.
A major Dyfed-Powys Police operation began after several people doing heroin “street deals” were arrested in cars or on trains coming to Wales from Wolverhampton. They had all been heading for Aberystwyth.

Mr Rouch said: “It soon became clear that a new gang had moved into town.”

The court heard that cash from street deals in Aberystwyth was deposited into accounts at the Lloyds TSB and Abbey National branches in the town.

Then, after texts or phone calls, “almost simultaneously” the same amounts would be withdrawn in bank branches in Wolverhampton.

Other members of the gang are due to be sentenced later this week but Judge Huw Davies QC said yesterday he was satisfied it was Amir who played the leading role with Shah having an “operational management” role.

He described Shah, who was arrested in the foyer of Aberystwyth’s Marine Hotel in February 2010, as Amir’s chief lieutenant.

The judge said Shah stopped his involvement in drugs after the arrest but Amir continued to lead the supply operation after his arrest around the same time.

Judge Davies said Amir was “undeterred” by the arrest and he began “bringing in substitutes” for suppliers and other who were arrested. He said it was not until June 2010 that Amir’s activities in Aberystwyth were finally brought to an end.

The judge said the supply of heroin had a “pernicious effect” on the community in Aberystwyth, a university town.

He said: “The damage done by heroin all too often is damage done to young people, marking their lives for a very long time.”

The court heard both defendants had histories of possession of cannabis.

The judge said as part of the operation, a woman went to Aberystwyth from Wolverhampton by train and was arrested with 134 £20 street deals of heroin. And a man was arrested taking the same route by train with 181 street deals of heroin on him.

Mr Rouch said Amir travelled to Aberystwyth when police began arresting street dealers.

The court heard that since being given bail after his arrest, Shah’s character had changed and he was a hard-working employee at his uncle’s restaurant in Wolverhampton where he had risen to the role of manager.
