Two recent stories about the on-street pimping of underage girls:
Who is doing it?
Research into 17 prosecutions between 1997 and 2010, involving the on-street grooming of girls aged 11-16 by gangs, showed that of the 56 people convicted, 3 were white, and 53 were Asian of whom only 3 were non-Muslim.
Whilst child abuse appears to happen among all populations, the on-street gangs grooming and pimping underage (white, non-muslim) girls appears to be an almost entirely muslim thing.
Nor can it be confidently asserted that it is a minority of sexually active muslim men involved, even assuming that the police have not turned a blind eye to muslim pimping gangs, as they appear to have done. One detective has described this as a tidal wave of offending.
The figures we have are indicative, because no government will ever conduct impartial research into this aspect of the problem. But the figures, such as they are, make it far from clear that this is a tiny minority of UK muslim males of sexually active age (say 18-56) who are customers of such gangs.
Nor is there any evidence of efforts by muslim authorities to put a stop to this crime. There are no muslim run hotlines to inform on the rapists. There are no muslim demonstrations on the subject.
And if sermons are preached against it they are quiet. See this case about an Imam who preached in favour of the rape of non-muslim women and then practised what he preached.
The root of the problem lies in Islamic doctrine.
The Koran is explicit that muslims should take non muslim females as slaves. Mohammed did this, as did his followers.
The phrase “whom your right hands possess” is repeated 14 times in the Koran. “Those whom your right hands possess” refers specifically to slaves, usually war-booty. The Koran specifically authorising sex with them:
Verse – 70:22-30
“… who restrain their carnal desire (save with their wives and their slave girls, for these are lawful to them) he that lusts after other than these is a transgressor…”
Verse – 23:5,6
“…who restrain their carnal desires (except with their wives and slave girls, for these are lawful to them…”
Verse – 4:24
“And all married women are forbidden unto you save those captives whom your right hand possess. It is a decree of Allah for you.”
Verse – 33:50
“Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty;…”
And this practice is supported in the Hadith, the tales and sayings from Mohammed’s life.
Similarly, sex with children, even prepubescent girls, is permitted within islam.
Mohammed married his ‘favourite’ wife Aisha when she was 6, and had sex with her when she was 9 and still playing with dolls – playing with dolls was forbidden to any but prepubescent girls, because dolls are human images and thus forbidden in islam.
The Koran also states that a muslim man can divorce a prepubescent girl whom he has married, and prescribes a “waiting time” (between sex and divorce) of three months. There is no waiting time for a wife with whom the man has not consummated the marriage.
If this Koranic instruction is pieced together, coupled with the life of Mohammed who is the ideal man and model for all muslims for all time, it becomes clear why the grooming, pimping and sex slavery of non muslim women should be so prevalent.
This problem is not merely another problem of crime, but a problem of islamic doctrine.
