Muslim Gang Force Teenagers to "Lick Their Boots" During Train Ordeal

The always excellent Opinionator put me on to the following disturbing story from Thursday's Birmingham Mail.

Police are seeking a large gang of "Asian" youths, including at least one female, who subjected three teenage boys to a humiliating ordeal under the threat of violence during a 30 minute train ride, before robbing them.

Here is the full story and the pictures of those the British Transport Police are currently seeking to "help them with their enquiries," as we say in this increasingly unfortunate part of the world:

RAILWAY police are hunting a gang of thugs who told three teenagers: “Lick our boots” during a 30-minute terror journey into Birmingham.

Officers said the boys – two 16-year-olds and another aged 17 – were also threatened with violence and suffered a “humiliating and degrading” ordeal at the hands of the gang.

British Transport Police today released CCTV images of eight people, including a girl, they want to trace in connection with the incident.

It happened when the louts boarded the New Street-bound train at Blake Street Station, near Sutton Coldfield.

Det Con Tim Friend, from British Transport Police, described the ordeal as “degrading bullying” and appealed for help to find the culprits.

“A group of between eight and ten Asian males and females bullied the lads for the whole of the 30-minute journey,” he said.

“They were told ‘kiss our feet’ and anyone who said no was threatened with violence. It was pretty unpleasant.”

A British Transport Police spokesman said: “We are seeking to identify the individuals pictured who we would like to speak to in connection with a robbery on a train service between Blake Street and New Street stations.

“Three young males were subjected to a protracted ordeal of bullying before having property stolen under threat of further violence.”

The victims were heading into the city for a concert on board a train that left Lichfield City station at 5.50pm on November 9 last year.

Police said the ordeal lasted until the train arrived at New Street.

The frightened lads were eventually robbed of their mobile phones, cash, train tickets and one had a concert ticket stolen.

Their assailants were seen giggling and joking with each other as they left the train.

The victims raised the alarm shortly after the train arrived in Birmingham, telling police the torment left them feeling “humiliated and degraded”.

Police checked CCTV footage from the station and Pallasades shopping centre to catch the culprits.

Detectives are now appealing to Birmingham Mail readers to help identify a group of people they want to speak to in connection with the incident after their own investigations drew a blank.

* Anyone who recognises those in the images or who has any information about the incident should contact Det Con Tim Friend on 0121 654 2244 or 0800 405040.

Of course, the police don't speculate why the gang would wish to humiliate and degrade their victims before robbing them - and I don't expect too many searching questions will be asked if they're caught.

Strangely, news of this crime has yet to reach the national media outlets, too - I wonder why that could be?

Labour Party "Infiltrated" by Islamists

Labour Environment Minister Jim Fitzpatrick claims that a Muslim organisation he describes as "fundamentalist" has infiltrated the Labour Party in order to further its own goals. He also claims it is operating in a similar fashion with the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats.

The article is worth reproducing in full:

The Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE) — which believes in jihad and sharia law, and wants to turn Britain and Europe into an Islamic state — has placed sympathisers in elected office and claims, correctly, to be able to achieve “mass mobilisation” of voters.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Jim Fitzpatrick, the Environment Minister, said the IFE had become, in effect, a secret party within Labour and other political parties.

“They are acting almost as an entryist organisation, placing people within the political parties, recruiting members to those political parties, trying to get individuals selected and elected so they can exercise political influence and power, whether it’s at local government level or national level,” he said.

“They are completely at odds with Labour’s programme, with our support for secularism.”

Mr Fitzpatrick, the MP for Poplar and Canning Town, said the IFE had infiltrated and “corrupted” his party in east London in the same way that the far-Left Militant Tendency did in the 1980s. Leaked Labour lists show a 110 per cent rise in party membership in one constituency in two years.

In a six-month investigation by this newspaper and Channel 4’s Dispatches, involving weeks of covert filming by the programme’s reporters:

  • IFE activists boasted to the undercover reporters that they had already “consolidated … a lot of influence and power” over Tower Hamlets, a London borough council with a £1 billion budget.
  • We have established that the group and its allies were awarded more than £10 million of taxpayers’ money, much of it from government funds designed to “prevent violent extremism”.
  • IFE leaders were recorded expressing opposition to democracy, support for sharia law or mocking black people. The IFE organised meetings with extremists, including Taliban allies, a man named by the US government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and a man under investigation by the FBI for his links to the September 11 attacks.
  • Moderate Muslims in London told how the IFE and its allies were enforcing their hardline views on the rest of the local community, curbing behaviour they deemed “un-Islamic”. The owner of a dating agency received a threatening email from an IFE activist, warning her to close it.
  • George Galloway, a London MP, admitted in recordings obtained by this newspaper that his surprise victory in the 2005 election owed more to the IFE “than it would be wise – for them – for me to say, adding that they played a “decisive role” in his triumph at the polls.

Mr Galloway now says they were one of many groups which supported his anti-war stance and had never sought to influence him.

The IFE has particularly close links to Tower Hamlets council. Seven serving and former councillors said Lutfur Rahman, the current council leader, gained his post with the group’s help.

Some said they were canvassed by a senior IFE official on his behalf. After Mr Rahman was elected, a man with close links to the group, Lutfur Ali, was appointed assistant chief executive of the council with responsibility for grant funding.

This was despite a chequered employment record, a misleading CV and a negative report from the headhunters appointed to consider the candidates. The council’s white chief executive was subsequently forced from his post.

Since Mr Rahman became leader, more council grants have been paid to a number of organisations which our investigation established are closely linked to the IFE.

Funding for other, secular groups was ended or cut. In the borough’s well-known Brick Lane area, council funds were switched from a largely secular heritage trail to a highly controversial “hijab sculpture”, angering many residents who accused the council of “religious triumphalism”.

Schools in Tower Hamlets are told by the council should close for the Muslim festival of Eid, even where most of their pupils are not Muslim.

Mr Rahman refused to deny that an IFE activist had canvassed councillors on his behalf. He said: “There are various people across Tower Hamlets who get excited, who get involved.”

He would not comment on concerns about infiltration, saying they were “party matters”. He said: “If you look at our flagship policies, like investing £20 million to tackle overcrowding, you can see that we are working for everyone.”

The IFE said it did not seek to influence the council and had not lobbied for Mr Rahman. “If anything, existing members of the Labour Party have joined the IFE, rather than the other way round,” it said.

The group insisted it was not a fundamentalist or extremist organisation and did not support violence.

Whilst it might still seem shocking to some that this could be occurring in Britain, it really is to be expected.

Various governments have devoted huge amounts of money and effort not only to importing vast numbers of hostile, alien people into the country, but also to telling them that they are victims and their interests can never be reconciled with those of the majority.

This is the result.

I suppose that now various white hard-Left types within Labour realise that the Muslims don't need them anymore and are beginning to strike out on their own, buying their own votes and influence, they are beginning to panic.

It's probably too late for them, just as it's probably too late for us - let's just hope those who actually foisted all this upon us reap what they've sown so readily for others.

The Joys of Diversity & Cultural Enrichment (XXV)

Just a brief reminder of how well government-backed mass immigration is going in three Western countries, and the joy and enrichment brought to their respective citizens in The Netherlands, Britain and the US.

1) The Netherlands:
Gouda local council has given criminal Moroccan teenagers money to stop causing trouble. "We wanted to prevent matters from escalating further," said the council yesterday.

Some dozens of young Moroccans waylaid and robbed passers-by in December. They were 'bought off' by the municipality to keep them off the street around New Year's Eve. They received a combined 2,250 euros, shoved into an envelope, to organise a party, De Telegraaf reported yesterday.

Gouda has confirmed that it paid the troublemakers. "We wanted to prevent maters from escalating further. The youngsters themselves had presented a budget for the party. They had to say how much money they needed for hiring a disc-jockey, a bite to eat and drinks. For us, it was important that it should be quiet in the district around the turn of the year."

According to the council, it had to act quickly. "Although the money was handed over in cash, it was well-spent. Everyone was happy afterwards. We also gave five Moroccans a gift voucher for a book shop afterwards as a thank-you," says a spokeswoman.
Yes, you read that correctly - in The Netherlands the penalty for forming large gangs and robbing innocent people en masse is a cash grant to throw a party, plus a little something extra as a "thank you" for not committing more crime for its duration.

Next time the geniuses at Gouda council feel money burning a hole in their pocket, they might like to consider that flights from The Netherlands to Morocco can be obtained for just under £200 per person - although I guess the handcuffs cost extra.

2) United Kingdom:

TWO rapists were wrestled to the cells as violent scenes erupted when they were put behind bars for a total of 17 years.

Sadiq Hussein, 20, and Abdillahi Adan, 18, hurled vicious abuse at their victim as they were each locked up for eight-and-a-half years. Hussein, of Chatsworth Drive, Edge Hill, and Adan, of Daniel Davies Drive, Toxteth, both denied rape, but were convicted by a jury.

The pair tried to jump from the dock and had to be restrained by security guards and police officers as they screamed threats and insults at their 18-year-old victim.

Liverpool Crown Court heard they had "preyed upon" their vulnerable victim and led her into Princes Park, Toxteth, after she asked for directions.

Judge David Aubrey QC said: "While you both raped her, one after the other, she was distressed, she was crying, she was crying for help and she was crying for you to stop.

"Her fear, anxiety, apprehension, trepidation is in my judgement immeasurable.

"But notwithstanding her cries for you to stop and her cries for help neither of you desisted."

I don't suppose there's any point in asking just what these two upstanding gentlemen were doing here in the first place?

Despite the judge's words, the brutality of the attack and their actions upon being sentenced (showing a violent, sociopathic disregard for everything, including authority, decency and reality), they'll both be out well before they're 30 to enrich someone else's life "beyond measure."

3) United States:

A Bosnian woman accused of trying to strangle her baby on Christmas Eve in Utica is blaming Serbs for her actions.

33-year-old Bosnian Muslim Saliha Mehmedovic told police and firefighters that she choked her baby until the baby turned blue.

Her lawyer, Patrick Marthage, says that Mehmedovic is too traumatized and mentally disturbed to ever truly explain why she choked her 2-½-month-old son Jasmin inside her home.

Marthage called Mehmedovic a “very tragic figure”.

“I think she was the victim of many atrocities in her native country,” Marthage said.

The reporters at the Observer-Dispatch were told that Serbs in Bosnia committed genocide, that Muslim women were massively raped and that Serbs victimized all Bosnian Muslims including Mehmedovic.

“Observer-Dispatch wants their readers to conclude that Serbs are to be blamed for Mehmedovic’s attempt to kill her own baby,” says a commentator.

Mehmedovic came to the US in 2000 with her boyfriend with whom she had a child that suffered a brain injury due to lack of oxygen allegedly at the hands of her boyfriends mother, also Bosnian Muslim.

The case is being prosecuted by First Assistant District Attorney Dawn Catera Lupi.

Iraqi Spits on Hero's WWII Service Medals - Escapes Jail

A shocking story from Thursday's Daily Mail indicates just how little respect many of the "cultural enrichers" who have arrived in this country have for its history, its culture and its traditions - not to mention its citizens.

This is Company Sgt. Major Sam Steadman, wearing the medals he earned during his distinguished military career.

Among them are the Palestine Medal, The Africa Star, The Italy Star and the 1939-1945 Star.

During the Second World War, CSM Steadman, a paratrooper, saw action at Dunkirk and in North Africa. He had joined the Army at just 15 and was the first man in his Company to earn The Military Medal.

Mr Steadman died in 1991, and ever since his grandson Timothy House has attended his local Remebrance Day parade in Portsmouth, wearing his Grandfather's medals in his honour. He does this because he believes it is what his Grandfather would have wished for, and also because he believes his Grandfather's actions, and those of countless thousands like him, should be remembered and respected rather than forgotten.

In 2009, Mr House attended as usual, despite the fact he was recovering from a broken hip. After the parade he was standing outside a pub chatting with some friends, including a wheelchair-bound veteran of 91 he had agreed to accompany and look after so he wouldn't miss out on being able to honour his fallen comrades.

As he stood on the pavement, he was passed by this individual, Iraqi immigrant Serwan Abdullah, 23.

For absolutely no reason, Abdullah spat at Mr House, and his saliva landed on his Grandfather's medals. This modern day representative of Cool Britannia then "ran off".

Mr House was understandably furious, and the police were called. When they caught up with Abdullah, he admitted the offence, then claimed Mr House had spat at him first in a "racist attack," before responding:

"I am proud of what I have done. I have no respect for him. F*** him and f*** his medals."

Of course, the stock defence of every non-white scoundrel ("It was racist, innit guv") turned out to be a lie.

Abdullah walked free from court this week, having been sentenced to pay £200 in damages (£100 in compensation to Mr House and £100 in court costs) and to complete 240 hours of unpaid work.

This in spite of the fact that the magistrate, Stuart Chittendon JP, summarised Abdullah's actions thus:

"The offence you have been convicted of is particularly abhorrent to society."

Indeed, Mr Chittendon. What a shame then that you still felt no real punishment was required. I don't think giving a couple of weeks worth of benefits money back to the public purse (assuming he actually pays up, of course) quite cuts it. Evidently this is why I am not and never will be employed in the British criminal justice system.

The only defence Abdullah's lawyer seemed to offer is that "he now accepts he was not acting in self defence."

Big of him. Unfortunately there is no record of any regret or an apology, or even a cursory understanding of why his actions were wrong and deeply offensive. Not that I'm surprised - it's just worth pointing out.

Abdullah has previous convictions for shoplifting, failure to comply with a community order, battery and criminal damage.

Shocking, I'm sure. Still, at least when I'm an old man Abdullah and his ilk will be stealing paying my pension, assuming such a thing still exists - right?

Well, clearly not. Despite the fact Abdullah is happy to enjoy our generous hospitality for as long as we're stupid enough to provide it, he clearly despises everything about this country and what it stands for. What could demonstrate that more clearly (other than his long criminal record) than spitting on the medals of a military veteran?

The article informs us:

Falklands veteran Chris Purcell, a parade martial with the Royal British Legion in Portsmouth, described Abdullah's actions as 'despicable’.

The 50-year-old former petty officer said: "To spit on the medals of a man who fought for our country is disgusting. It's a huge insult."

Yet still, for many, the siren-song of Leftism continues. Out of 30 comments on the Daily Mail article, one was the barely believable:

What you have to realise is that he has an opinion of Western culture based on his life in Iraq. He probably despises the WEST, and given the appalling way that some of our Soldiers have behaved out there towards the Iraqi people, who could blame him? Whilst not condoning what he did, he has EVERY right to protest about anything that he chooses - it's called Democracy.
