“This case involved the cynical exploitation of a number of young girls by a group of predatory men in the Huddersfield area… The men cynically groomed and exploited children for their own sexual gratification, drawing them into a dark and sordid world in which they had little or no control over their lives… Sometimes the abusers used threats and violence to achieve their objective, sometimes plying the girls with alcohol or drugs. The victims were unable to make truly free or informed choices about anything they did with these men… Throughout, the men cared only for themselves and viewed the girls as objects to be used and abused at will.” – Michael Quinn, Crown Prosecution Service, quoted by Lucy Leeson in “Huddersfield grooming gang members found guilty of multiple sex offences against young girls” – Yorkshire Post, October 24th, 2019.
“The reason U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East has tended towards disaster is arguably because policymakers depend on advisors and analysts who are products of such Middle East studies departments – as are the many scholars and ‘experts’ who insist that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’.” – Raymond Ibrahim, “Trump administration calls out bias in Middle East studies programs” – Gatestone Institute, October 21st, 2019.
“These crimes are tied to Muslim migration, a topic that is carefully avoided. The media and globalist decision-makers continue to ignore the problem, and flawed immigration policies continue unimpeded… Sweden has long become ‘a perfect example of how not to handle’ immigration. African and Middle Eastern street gangs, violent Muslim no-go zones, and sharia patrols are all part of the growing crisis.” – Christine Douglass-Williams, “Sweden: Muslim migration link avoided as sex crimes triple in five years” – Jihad Watch, October 12th, 2019.
“And yet, today, the ‘manly hearts’ appear to have simply withered as Great Britain and now most of Europe behave in classic dhimmi fashion, falling prey to the imaginary racism called Islamophobia. In fact, as Salman Rushdie writes in Joseph Anton, ‘a new word has been created to help the blind remain blind: Islamophobia. To criticize the militant stridency of this religion in its contemporary incarnation [is] to be a bigot’… After the Iranian Revolution of 1980, the term ‘Islamophobia’ ‘underwent a mutation that weaponized it.’ It continues to be more militant as it has ‘entered the global lexicon.’ Clearly, America and Canada are not immune, either.” – Eileen F. Toplansky, “Death by Islamophobia” – American Thinker, October 29th, 2019.
“An Egyptian TV program has again drawn attention to a concern I raised in testifying before your committee of evidence that Turkish Airlines surreptitiously flies armament into Nigeria. As a business operating in the US, I once again urge for proper scrutiny, investigation and sanctions as necessary. As we approach the sixth anniversary of the FTO [foreign terrorist organization] designation of Boko Haram, it is important that those sanctions be enforced especially as Turkey’s current onslaught on the Kurds could potentially recalibrate ISIS which already has a West African phalanx in Nigeria.” – US-based lawyer and rights activist, Emmanuel Ogebe, quoted by Raymond Ibrahim in “Turkey: Arming genocide of Christians in Nigeria?” – Gatestone Institute, November 3rd, 2019.
