UK: It Was "Racist" to Prosecute Muslim Rape Gangs
by Robert Spencer
Britain's Birmingham Mail reported last week that Birmingham's City Council buried a report about Muslim cab drivers exploiting non-Muslim girls back in 1990.
A researcher, Dr. Jill Jesson, drafted a report on this issue. But, she explained, "the report was shelved, buried, it was never made public. I was shocked to be told that copies of the report were to be destroyed and that nothing further was to be said. Clearly, there was something in this report that someone in the department was worried about."
Authorities were worried because Jesson's report illustrated that virtually all of the exploitative cab drivers were "Asians," the British media euphemism for Muslims, and their victims were "white," i.e., non-Muslim. The exploitation of these girls stems from Qur'an-based religious beliefs, but British officials were terrified because stopping this exploitation would appear "racist."
