    'Ashya King's parents have been freed from Spanish custody after prosecutors withdrew a European arrest warrant. Brett and Naghemeh King were detained after taking five-year-old Ashya, who has a brain tumour, from a Southampton hospital against medical advice. Prosecutors said they were happy any risk to Ashya's life "was not as great or immediate as... originally thought". Despite being released from custody, Mr and Mrs King have yet to leave prison, the BBC understands. Ashya is currently being treated in a hospital in Malaga. In a statement earlier, the Crown Prosecution Service said it had "urgently reviewed the case and...

    As Twitchy reported yesterday, more than 1,400 children were abused in the British town of Rotherham, with a 153-report noting that “the girl victims were white, and their abusers Pakistani.” Forbes contributor Roger Scruton blamed political correctness for the lack of action, writing that “police forces lean over backwards to avoid the accusation of racism, while social workers will hesitate to intervene in any case in which they could be accused of discriminating against ethnic minorities. Matters are made worse by the rise of militant Islam, which has added to the old crime of racism the new crime of ‘Islamophobia’....

    Tuesday, 2 September 2014 A Scottish-born private schoolgirl who travelled to Syria has joined Islamist militants there and urged Muslims in Britain to bring the “battlefield” home, the British Daily Mail newspaper reported Monday. The case of Glasgow-born Aqsa Mahmood, 20, surfaced as Prime Minister David Cameron announced plans to give police more powers to curb the rising phenomena of Britons joining militants in the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. The British daily said Police Scotland and security services confirmed they were aware of the case of Mahmood, who in 2013 abandoned a university course to join militants fighting...

    In Great Britain, the Liberal Democrat party is proposing that "age appropriate" sex education classes be introduced to include internet porn and social media for students as young as seven years old. The party wants to implement new courses that address sites and apps like Twitter and Snapchat, which can contain sexually explicit material. The party says it wants to avoid "extreme" subjects and make the courses age appropriate. "We're not saying as politicians children should be taught XYZ or ABC, as we're not the policy experts," Spokesman Ben Rothe said, according to the UK Mirror. "We're not saying children...

This compares to 57% for Yes and 43% for No in mid August and 61% for Yes and 39% for No at the beginning of last month.

Lucy was 12, and a group of teenage boys, handsome and flirtatious, treated her and her friends to free rides and ice cream after school. Over time, older men were introduced to the girls, while the boys faded away. Soon they were getting rides in real cars, and were offered vodka and marijuana. One man in particular, a Pakistani twice her age and the leader of the group, flattered her and bought her drinks and even a mobile phone. Lucy liked him. The rapes started...

MI5 also referred to the Mumbai atrocity of 2008 as a comparison, in which coordinated bombings and shootings took place over...

The fatwa, which The Sunday Times newspaper said had been issued by imams, is the strongest denunciation yet by the Muslim community of UK citizens who join militants of the self-proclaimed Islamic State, formerly known as ISIL and ISIS. Issued by a learned Muslim scholar, a fatwa is an edict that may concern any aspect of Islamic life. Technically it cannot be revoked and dies only with the person it is imposed on.

The first poll of the constituency, which handed ex-Tory MP Carswell 53% of the vote in 2010, predicted he would be returned as Ukip's first elected candidate in Westminster with eye-watering support of 64%. The Conservatives are trailing an enormous 44% behind on 20%, with Labour on 13%. Survation's poll for the Mail on Sunday newspaper is a disaster for the Tories, who had made clear they planned to fight the seat vigorously following Carswell's shock defection on Thursday.

A summit in Brussels shared the two coveted EU posts between a Kremlin critic from ex-communist Eastern Europe and the foreign minister of one of Moscow's biggest customers for gas. EU officials gave Ukraine's embattled President Petro Poroshenko a warm welcome and assurances of further support. But divisions among the 28 EU nations have hampered action against Moscow, and a...

Even more horrifically, it’s normal for victims who threaten to expose the abuse or escape from it to be menaced with guns,...

The precise motive is not yet clear but police say they arrested a suspect, named as 39-year-old Neil Masterson of London, for religiously-aggravated assault, as well as common assault against a man who attempted to defend the radical MP. The suspect is due to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on...

All the while, the entire apparatus of the state, from the political class to the police to the "child protection" agencies, looked the other way - for fear of appearing "racist" or "Islamophobic".

The UK threat level was raised to “severe” — its second highest — meaning that a terrorist attack is “highly likely” in light of the growing danger from British jihadists returning from Iraq and Syria. The Prime Minister said that the risk posed by Isil (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) will last for “decades” and raised the prospect of an expanding terrorist nation “on the shores of the Mediterranean”.

    The notorious Sydney gang rapes in 2000 were committed by Lebanese Australians. Muslim men raped women and girls as young as 14. Australia, being a sensible sort of place, identified that the rapists were targeting white girls and branded these monstrous acts "racially-motivated hate crimes." Because that's what they looked like: one ethnicity was specifically targeting another. The Australian girls were vulnerable, and they were abused by Middle Eastern men who considered them "trash." Had these men been at home, they would have raped their own, but in another country, women from outside their own "community" were preferable victims. Elsewhere...

The latest horror was laid bare on August 26th, in a report into the sexual exploitation of children in Rotherham, a poor northern English town.

The move is part of a series of new security measures being taken by the country after raising the terror threat level to "severe" as Cameron admitted the fight to end Islamist extremism may take decades, or even generations. "We are in the middle of a generational struggle against a poisonous & extremist ideology," Cameron declared. British authorities raised the terror threat level Friday to one below "critical," the highest alert, because it is...

    LONDON — Alarmed by the suspected presence of hundreds of British jihadis among Sunni militants in Syria and Iraq, Britain increased its assessment of the terrorism threat on its own soil on Friday and said new laws would be introduced to counter what Prime Minister David Cameron called “a greater threat to our security than we have seen before.” The tone of the warnings recalled the days after July 7, 2005, when four suicide bombers killed 52 travelers on the London transit system. The show of concern, moreover, seemed intended to bolster the government’s case for contentious new legislation to...

    Rotherham's council leader has stepped down but there are calls for other heads to roll over the devastating abuse scandal. Many people are asking why no-one in a position of responsibility has been held accountable in the wake of the Rotherham sex abuse scandal. A devastating report revealed at least 1,400 children were sexually exploited over 16 years - between 1997 and 2013 - with girls as young as 11 repeatedly raped by large numbers of men. The inquiry found Rotherham council knew as far back as 2005 of sexual exploitation on a wide scale - mostly by Asian men...
  • More Rotherham Horrors: Teen Raped by 250 Men Over Two Years, Police Informed and Did Nothing

    I wrote yesterday about the horrifying news from Rotherham, England: An estimated 1,400 children were victims of child sexual exploitation between 1997 and 2013, according to an independent inquiry commissioned last fall by Rotherham’s Metropolitan Borough Council. But because the perpetrators were overwhelmingly “Asian” — for the most part, Muslim men from Pakistan — local authorities, from social-services managers to law enforcement, regularly neglected reports of rape, assault, and sex trafficking for fear of being deemed racist. Today, a U.K. newspaper illustrates in ghastly detail what young girls in Rotherham have faced for nearly two decades. The Mirror reports that...

    The UK's terror threat level is being raised from "substantial" to "severe" in response to conflicts in Iraq and Syria, Home Secretary Theresa May says. The new alert level means an attack on the UK is "highly likely", although Mrs May said there was no intelligence to suggest an attack was "imminent". It is the second highest of five possible UK threat levels.

    No country with a Muslim population is immune to grooming gangs. America is on the same path as Europe and trailing not too far behind. In fact, Muslim grooming gangs (mainly Somali) have already found their way to the streets of America. These gangs have been operating for over 10 years in Minnesota, Tennessee, Michigan, and Ohio. The largest grooming case in U.S. history was from Somali immigrant communities in Minneapolis (MN) and Nashville (TN), in which 29 Somali Muslims were indicted in 2010 for kidnapping, raping, and selling underage girls between 2000 and 2010. Canada and Australia are also...

    Among the more nauseating spectacles of the Rotherham child rape scandal has been the squirming evasion and shameless attempts at face-saving by the various authority figures whose job it supposedly was to prevent such horrors happening. One of them is a man named Javed Khan. He is the head of Britain's largest children's charity Barnardo's which now stands accused of having known about the Muslim rape gang problem for well over a decade - but which chose to do next to nothing to confront it. In an ugly interview with Sky News, Khan infuriated viewers - and his normally mild-mannered...

    The woman who presided over the last five years of failure as the boss of children’s services at Rotherham Council is the same executive who removed three children from their foster parents because they were Ukip voters. Joyce Thacker, the Ł130,000-a-year Strategic Director of Children’s Services at the scandal-hit council, is among the senior managers who are now under pressure to resign following the “excoriating” report into child sexual exploitation in the town. Mrs Thacker, who joined the Council as deputy head of children’s services in 2006, is already a controversial figure following her decision two years ago to remove...
