As a follow-up to his essay yesterday about the latest “grooming and pimping”, Paul Weston presents this overview of the apocalyptic crisis in Britain brought about by uncontrolled immigration from the Third World.
Britain is a very odd place these days. We are being subjected to what amounts to a racial and cultural war against us, yet our politicians refuse to talk about it, and the overwhelming majority of the indigenous population seem too cowed and fearful to force the politicians to not just recognise the problem, but to actually do something about it.
Consider the recent story regarding the rapist Mawawe Ibraham Karam and what it tells you about the cultural and social fabric of England in 2012. Karam is an illegal immigrant from Sudan who attacked and raped a drunken indigenous English girl in Nottingham earlier this year. Despite the clear distress of the girl, any number of passers-by ignored her predicament, as did local taxi drivers.
Viewed in isolation, this is just a drearily predictable end of a night out in the modern Britain built around liberal/left values. “Empowered” girls too drunk to control their own lives; predatory third-world immigrants taking advantage of them and a mass of timid; cowardly Brits too scared to confront a rapist — and so lacking in basic decency they would not help the victim even after the rapist had fled the scene.
In 2011, nearly a fifth of all suspected rapists and murderers arrested were immigrants. Ninety-one were accused of murder while four-hundred-and-six were charged with rape in England and Wales. All too typical is the case of the murderer Younas Beraki, a failed asylum seeker from Eritrea who had been deported three times before Britain’s criminally negligent UK Border Agency (UKBA) allowed him back again in order to commit murder.
Out of half-a-million asylum and illegal immigrant cases, only ten percent were ever deported. Perhaps Mr Beraki was one of them, but if having been deported they can simply cruise straight back again we might just as well save money by closing down the “border controls” and declaring Britain open to all — which we effectively have.
Britain is not just a safe haven for rapists and the occasional solo murderer. We have sunk to such a disgraceful low that we also allow in mass-murdering war criminals. Figures obtained by the Yorkshire Post under the Freedom of Information Act, show that between June 2010 and December 2011, the immigration agency identified eight hundred and five people worthy of investigation relating to torture, genocide and crimes against humanity.
Last year it was disclosed that a special war crimes unit within the UK Border Agency had recommendation action against four-hundred-and-ninety-five individuals in the previous five years. Redress, a human rights pressure group, said: “A major concern is what is happening to those suspects. Does the UKBA refer them all to the Metropolitan Police for investigation with a view to seeing if they can be prosecuted here?”
Michael McCann, the chairman of the All-Party Group for the Prevention of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity, agreed: “We need a frank exchange between the UKBA and police and we need ministers to provide straight answers to straight questions.”
A UKBA spokesman said: “We are determined to ensure the UK does not become a refuge for war criminals and have robust processes in place to identify and seek to remove anyone suspected of such a crime.
And how successful have our wonderful border agents been? As of May 2012 only three suspected war criminals have been deported.
Still at large, for example, is Mr Mueen-Uddin, who allegedly played his own small part in the massacre of hundreds of thousands of Bangladeshi civilians by Pakistani troops in 1971 when Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) was fighting for independence from Pakistan.
Mueen-Uddin was a member of a fundamentalist party, Jamaat-e-Islami, which supported Pakistan in the war. In the closing days, as it became clear that Pakistan had lost, he is accused of being part of a the Al-Badr Brigade, which rounded up, tortured and killed prominent citizens to deprive the new state of its intellectual and cultural elite.
Having made his way to Britain he helped to found the extremist Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE), Jamaat-e-Islami’s European wing, which believes in creating a sharia state in Europe. Up until 2010 Mr Mueen-Uddin was vice-chairman of the controversial East London Mosque, controlled by the IFE. He was also closely involved with the Muslim Council of Britain, which has been dominated by the IFE for years.
Along with the war criminals, rapists and murderers comes Multicultural Britain’s new participation in child-slavery, child-sacrifice and sex-slavery. An undercover Sunday Telegraph reporter was offered children for sale in Nigeria: two boys aged three and five for £5,000 and a ten-month-old baby for £2,000. Teenage girls — including some still pregnant — were willing to sell their babies for less than £1,000. One international trafficker, tracked down in Lagos, claimed to be buying up to five hundred children a year.
The children, estimated by British police to number in their thousands, are then sold to African families in London, Birmingham and Manchester where they are used as domestic slaves and fraudulent cash cows with regard to housing and other welfare benefits. Some of the children are also subjected to physical and sexual abuse, while others even find themselves accused of being witches and become victims of exorcism rites in “traditional” African churches in Britain.
The sex-slave trade mainly consists of girls trafficked from East Asia and Eastern Europe. Abigail Stepnitz of thePoppy Project (set up to provide support for trafficked women) estimates there are ten thousand sex-slaves in Britain. She also lays the blame squarely on Britain’s immigration system, which she says plays into the hands of the gangs.
Prime Minister David Cameron promised he would put a stop to all this, yet last year saw an influx of close to half a million more immigrants. How many future rapists and murderers of native Brits are among them? No one knows of course, but we do know there will be many.
Going back to the Nottingham rape and the cowardly non-action of passers-by, this one incident is symbolic of the greater rape of the entire nation. The indigenous Brits are being demographically pushed aside whilst their wives, girl-friends and daughters are raped with impunity under the very eyes of our ruling elites who choose to ignore it in the interests of community cohesion — and the reason they can ignore it is very simple, the Eloi Brits just meekly accept their second-class status and cause no trouble for the politicians or the police.
Truly, this is a country and a people staring into a racial and cultural abyss. A civilised indigenous race seems to have rolled over and allowed itself to be defiled, abused and defeated by the uncivilised detritus of the Third World.
What happened to us? When did we lose our will to survive as a proud and unified people? What on earth is wrong with the British? Our immediate ancestors would have been rioting in the streets long, long ago.
Can it really be because we are afraid of being called a word? Are we really so frightened of being called “racist” we are prepared to allow our children and grandchildren to inherit Hell On Earth? If defending your people, your culture, your country and your very civilisation apparently makes you a racist, then it is a badge I will wear with pride.

VICTIMS of human sex trafficking have told how they were enslaved by witchcraft, torture and death threats in modern-day Scotland. The harrowing stories of ten women were compiled by campaigners investigating the world’s fastest growing organised crime. Nine came from Africa, one from South America.In one of the testimonies to a Glasgow charity, a 21-year-old told how she was branded and forced to take a “witchcraft oath” to prevent her escaping. She said: “I had to take the oath. I was given this mark on my hand. I was told that this mark, if you tell anyone what has transpired, you are going to die. “They gave me a razor blade to eat, they took my armpit hair, they removed my nails from my toes and my fingers. “They removed the hair on my body, they tied it up and put it in this shrine, then they tear my body and told me that if I tell anyone, ‘you will just die’. When I saw the shrine, it was so big, I was so scared.”The women tell their stories in research commissioned by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The main centres for sex trafficking are Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, Paisley, Stirling and Falkirk but it also touches small towns and villages. So far Scotland has had just one successful prosecution – while there have been 150 in England and Wales. Human rights lawyer Baroness Helena Kennedy, who headed the investigation, said: “As a criminal lawyer I have heard and read many stories of women being beaten, abused and suffering psychological torment, so there is not much that shocks me. “However, the evidence that we took from women not only shocked me, as it would any woman, but resolved me to ensure their voices, their experiences, their insights, were heard.
“These are stories of ordinary women – mothers, daughters and sisters – vulnerable due to poverty and discrimination, being deceived into Scotland and subjected to horrifying sexual violation.
“These violations occur across Scotland, and not only in our cities; the women and girls are exploited indoors, in private “sex” flats, not in shadowy back streets. They may seem fine and in control when in fact they are mentally shackled and controlled by traffickers.
“It is now up to us all to work together – across our families and communities, our villages, towns and cities, and in our politics – to identify and, together, rid Scotland of the modern slavery in our midst.”
Kennedy published a report on Scotland’s failure to tackle trafficking last November – but this is the first time the voices of victims have been heard.
The research found women are trafficked from across the globe to Scotland but mainly from Nigeria, China and Brazil and many come via England.
But there is evidence that an increasing number are taken straight to Scotland.
All of the victims had been vulnerable in their home countries.
Many had lost family, were fleeing poverty, abuse or tribal violence and had turned to trusted community “aunties and uncles”.
The women were mainly locked in flats and rooms, forced to have sex with up to 15 men a day, beaten and not allowed to use contraception.
Their passports were taken and they were told their families would be killed if they tried to leave. Even when the women became pregnant they still had to have sex with punters.
Women who were considered “new” were particularly popular in brothels.
Some even talk of their children being held with them. One woman was locked in a room with her daughter who had to listen to her mother being raped.
She said: “There was a room attached to my bedroom with a toilet and a shower. The trafficker said that I should look smart as it is money I have to make.
“When men came, the trafficker would unlock the door and take my daughter away.
“While I was with these men I could hear my daughter crying in the other room. It was terrible. When the men were finished they would use the bathroom and then leave.”
Women from Africa described their traffickers as powerful people within tribal communities who had connections with corrupt officials.
The EHRC report said: “These women report being controlled using oaths or juju magic.”
A 21-year-old described how she was forced to take alcohol and drugs so that she would be compliant.
Money was paid to a madam who forced her to work seven days a week and beat her if she failed to keep customers happy.
She said: “It was so painful, they were so rough, they didn’t care, they just wanted satisfaction.
“I saw more than 10 men a day and because I was new, everyone wanted to have me. People waited for me.
“When I finished with one they say go and have this liquid, wash up. My body was so painful.”
The ten women who gave their testimonies had all come through the Trafficking Awareness Raising Alliance (TARA), a Scotland-wide support service based in Glasgow.
The interviewees were aged 21 to 33, nine of them from Africa, including Somalia, Nigeria, Gambia, Uganda and Kenya, and one from South America. The women had all fled their traffickers.
A couple were helped to escape by regular customers but the men who intervened were the exception.
When one woman told a customer she had been trafficked he became more brutal, while another punter only helped a woman to escape so that he could use her for himself. He abandoned her when she fell pregnant.
One victim said she repeatedly told punters she was trafficked and needed help, yet only one assisted her.
The man, a regular trusted by the trafficker, took the girl to his house, gave her a little money and dropped her at the Scottish Refugee Council.
Another girl was freed when the police raided a brothel and one who had been captive for ten years was found unconscious by police and taken to hospital.
Many victims were told they were under constant surveillance but one Nigerian girl took a chance when her female trafficker went to London.
The victim said: “She said that I could not leave the house. She said that she had people watching me. All she would do was to call the house, if nobody answered then she would know.
“All of this time I was looking out the window. I was thinking to myself who could be watching me? Who would be watching if I just took a step outside? If I left the house? I was so scared. I cannot even remember leaving.”
The victim had been trafficked as a child to north-east England and was then moved to be sexually exploited in Glasgow.
In one account, a victim took a chance when, on her way to the toilet, she noticed the flat door was open.
“I was terrified the men had set a trap for me so I just went to the toilet.
“When I came out I saw the door was still open. I was very scared but I took a chance and ran out.
“I came to the landing and saw three doors. The first two I tried were shut fast. I thought about returning to the flat but the third door opened. I went through this door and there were stairs. I ran down many flights of stairs. I ran out of the flats.”
The victim had been trafficked from Africa and was only prostituted in Scotland. She was trafficked by a trusted community member she turned to after witnessing the murder of her parents and grandparents by the police.
When she ran out of the flat she stopped a couple of female passers-by – the first refused to help but the second took her by bus to the Scottish Refugee Council.
(Nigeria) It has been estimated that more that 500 Nigerians, mostly Christians and other southerners have been so far killed in the post-election violence that erupted in some parts of the tick Muslim populated north.
Reports also have it that the Nigeria Muslim Council (NMC) issued an ultimatum on April 6, demanding Christians leave the north of the country within the week.
These views are contained in a report by the Release International, (www.releaseinternational.org) a United Kingdom (UK) based Christian advocacy group stressing that at the same time 60 churches were burnt and thousands of Christian homes destroyed in protest at the electoral victory of southern Christian Goodluck Jonathan.
In anticipation of the results of Nigeria’s remarkably smooth presidential vote over the weekend, angry young men took to the streets across the country’s mainly Muslim north on Monday with knives and clubs.
Despite the fact that international and domestic observers said this was the first relatively free and fair election since the tumultuous country moved beyond military rule 12 years ago, someone had convinced the mobs that the election had been rigged in favor of incumbent president Goodluck Jonathan, a southern Christian.
Protests soon turned deadly, with churches, mosques, homes, and businesses set ablaze in the northern cities of Kaduna and Kano. In Kaduna on Tuesday, Christian neighborhoods were targeted, and known supporters of Mr. Jonathan’s ruling People’s Democratic Party were burned alive and hacked with machetes. Reprisal attacks by Christians quickly followed. More than 200 have been killed, according to one local rights group.
The Muslim-Christian violence underscores a bitter reality: The age of “do-or-die” politics and “thugs-for-hire” patronage networks is not dead in Nigeria. And although Nigerian politicians do have the power to tamp down local rivalries that quickly morph into brutal religious violence, more often than not, these leaders do the opposite.
On Tuesday after his official defeat in the presidential race, after dozens of people had been killed and more than 10,000 displaced, popular opposition leader Muhammadu Buhari characterized the violence as “sad, unfortunate, and totally unwarranted,” but issued no direct appeal for calm. “We have commenced consultations at the highest levels to recover your stolen mandate,” Mr. Buhari said Wednesday.
For his part, Mr. Jonathan told CNN on Tuesday that the violence was “not spontaneous” and thus was a planned disruption, though the president said he didn’t want to accuse anybody. Jonathan also said the “crisis” was linked to the festering problem of jobless, hopeless young masses in both northern and southern Nigeria.
How religious violence pops off
In such an environment, the often intense divide between deeply religious Muslim and Christian citizens, and the always high-stakes nature of politics and power, means that political violence frequently becomes religious.
Given the “ready army” made up of thousands of discontented youth, this violence frequently escalates, with politicians using the chaos and bloodshed as leverage as they jockey for influence and a greater share of the oil-rich country’s immense economic spoils.
Aside from the latest wave of violence in the north, the country’s Middle Belt region – where the mainly Muslim north meets the predominately Christian south – has become a case study in how Nigerian politicians fuel religious violence.
Muslim and Christians in the Middle Belt’s unofficial capital, Jos, in Plateau state, now live cheek by jowl in what many residents call a religious apartheid.
Over the past year plus, since several massacres – of Muslims by Christians and of Christians by Muslims – killed hundreds in January and March 2010, whole communities in Jos have displaced themselves out of fear of further violence.
“People should be able to do things with freedom,” said Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of the Catholic Archdiocese of Jos. “But instead you must be worried about who is next door to you.”
Fanning the flames
Despite the divergences in the various accounts of how Jos came to be an epicenter of horrific violence over the past decade, many residents pinpoint an issue that drives the conflict: the “‘indigene” concept, which has become a discriminatory, state government-enforced policy.
The Muslim community, which makes up the majority of the population in the northern part of the city, accuses the state government of consistently denying the Muslim community their basic rights as citizens on the basis that they are “settlers” in the state, and therefore not so-called indigenes privy to citizen rights.
Mohamed Lawal Ishaq, a lawyer and a member of a Muslim affairs council, says that – like all Muslim residents in Jos – his children are unable to enroll in public schools because they lack indigene certificates, despite the fact that they were born in Jos, as were there parents.
Like many other Muslims – and moderate Christians – Mr. Ishaq holds Plateau State Gov. Jonah David Jang responsible for such discriminatory polices and says that the governor is fanning the flames of the trouble.
“You expect a leader, during a crisis, to calm a situation,” said Ishaq. “But the governor provokes, worsens, and take sides.”
‘Delivering’ the Muslim vote?
Ishaq’s council seems to be playing a political game of its own, however. He said his council is currently “in negotiations” with several opposition gubernatorial candidates, suggesting that the council is capable of delivering the Muslim vote in the state governor race on April 26.
Although Ishaq says imams in Jos are continuing to call for the community’s youth to remain peaceful during the tense elections period and its aftermath, the fact that the Muslim council is clearly using its religious authority to play politics indicates the ease of religious mobilization for political gain in the polarized society.
Governor Jang told the Monitor in an interview that he is “very conscious of the fact that all of the citizens ” in his state are his responsibility. Jang then gave his take on the Constitution, suggesting that his state’s so-called settlers are, in effect, second-class citizens who should respect, even adopt, the culture, traditions, and religion of the “indigenous” population.
The governor, an evangelical Christian who received a divinity degree from a Nigerian theological college after he retired from the Air Force in the early 1990s, is unequivocal about defending Christianity as the religion of his state. “As a result of the failure of the Muslim jihad here [in the 1800s], they still think they can get [Plateau state] back to Islamicize,” he told the Monitor.
Theory vs. practice
“The Nigeria Constitution absolutely forbids any discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, and circumstances of your birth … that is in theory,” says Sule Kwasau, a lawyer in private practice in Jos. “In practice, some of these absurdities [related to the “indigene” concept] are not only prevalent in Plateau state, they are prevalent all over Nigeria.”
Since Governor Jang’s election in 2007, the crisis in the Middle Belt has worsened. With each new, major wave of violence – notably in 2008 and 2010 – resentment between Muslim and Christians over the killings has increased, until finally reaching its current apartheid-like state in the city of Jos.
“Fighting is no good,” says a waiter in a Jos restaurant, who says his mother is Christian and his father is a Muslim. “We have to learn to live together again.”
Running for re-election in the April 26 elections with the campaign slogan of “REDEMPTION 2011,” the current governor is not publicly seen as taking the initiative to embrace the Muslim community who he views as “settlers,” despite their two century-long history in his state.
Some long-time Jos residents who did not want to be quoted publicly say that Jang has benefited from the ongoing crisis in his state. Last year’s crisis resulted in additional federal government funds being allocated to Jang for bosltering security. Jang has also used the tense situation to rally Christians behind him, cultivating a savior-like image during his gubernatorial campaign.
Meanwhile, the Muslim community is busy rallying its own support base, largely behind opposition candidate Pauline Tellen – the current deputy governor who has fallen out with Jang over the crisis.
“The real problem is bad governance, says Hadjiya Khadija Hawaya, a local Muslim women’s leader, detailing the discrimination her community has suffered under the indigene policy pushed by the current governor.
There is no doubt among Muslims and Christians alike that the local government must play a crucial role in the resolution of the crisis.
“All efforts boil down to the government in power,” said Ishaq, the lawyer at the Muslim council, voicing a familiar refrain of his community.
Catholic Archbishop Kaigama criticized the state government for perpetuating the myth of a one-dimensional religious crisis, saying that the government’s “failure to address other problems” such as poverty, underdevelopment, and youth unemployment is an important reason why the conflict persists.
“The way the leadership responds to these issues goes a long way toward knowing if the conflict will be resolved peacefully,” said Chris Kwaja, a professor at the Centre for Conflict Management and Peace Studies at the University of Jos.
Until then, Jos may well remain a city divided, with citizens living in fear and half-charred homes and bombed-out churches and mosques standing as living memorials to the ongoing tragedy stoked by the politicians in power.
