Forthcoming EDL Rochdale Demo: Saturday 5 March

It has emerged that the EDL will be holding a demo outside of Rochdale Town Hall this Saturday between 12:00 and 15:00. According to Rochdale online, a promotional poster for the event reads:
The English Defence League is to hold a demonstration in the town of Rochdale to highlight the peoples concerns over the grooming culture amongst the Islamic communities. Recent investigations by [Greater] Manchester Police has led to a number of arrests of Asian men and the former Home Secretary Jack Straw finally bringing this issue to [the] attention of the media and public.
Well, unfortunately there certainly is a “grooming culture” amongst sections of the UK’s Muslim population which stems directly form the example of the life of their ‘Prophet’. As you can see from the squirming displayed by respondents to the Quiz for Muslims, they are unwilling to condemn their model of the ‘perfect’ human being – Mohammed – for his paedophilia. Underage non-Muslim girls, particularly English girls, have been targeted by Muslim paedophile gangs in (amongst other places): Blackburn, Derby, Keighley and Rotherham. If a Muslim will not condemn the paedophilia of his or her beloved Prophet Mohammed, then they should not be permitted to work with children. Getting such individuals debarred from working in nurseries, schools and youth groups should become one of the EDL’s key objectives. This could be enforced by requiring Muslims to sign a statement condemning the paedophilia of Mohammed when applying for jobs. Who could object to such a perfectly reasonable requirement? Either you condemn paedophilia, or you condone it.

Only within this last week, the Daily Mail reported that an English judge by the name of Gareth Hawkesworth passed a derisory sentence on a 26-year-old Muslim named Turon Ali, giving him a 12-month suspended sentence for grooming a 14-year-old schoolgirl. The Mail reports that Ali:
groomed the schoolgirl by sending her explicit text messages and then arranged a secret meeting where he planned to abuse her.
He was only prevented from sexually assaulting the girl when her older brother found one of the texts and alerted police.
But Ali avoided jail at Cambridge Crown Court with a 12-month suspended sentence after a top judge ruled he was 'not a paedophile as such'.
Judge Gareth Hawkesworth said: 'You thought she was ''easy' meat''. You were thrust into a moral vacuum without a single care of what you might be doing.
'You are not a paedophile as such. You are simply a young man who was unable to control his sexual urges.'
In this case, we can see the very worst effects of cultural relativism and politically correct culture in the UK today, which has gone so far that it now apparently allows some Muslim paedophiles to prey upon our children without effective sanction. Turon Ali wasn’t operating in ‘a moral vacuum’ as the judge claimed, but was actually fulfilling his Prophet’s injunction to exploit the female children of unbelievers to gratify his own sexual appetite.

Saturday’s EDL demo has been little publicised, so it is doubtful that it will be a large-scale affair. Nonetheless, the usual violent ‘no-platform’ protesters from the Islamo-Marxist Left including the UAF, Islamic Defence League (do they mean Muslim Defence League?) and a group called ‘Stop the racist EDL coming to Rochdale’ (sounding suspiciously like a joint ‘Hope Not Hate’ and local authority front) are planning to counter-demonstrate. If these groups didn’t turn up to EDL demos, there would be little or no disorder. Hopefully, the police will therefore ensure that EDL supporters are free to exercise their right to peaceful protest without hindrance from their hysterical opponents. Somehow though, this may well not be the case.

  1. Unfortunately hopes that EDL would carry out their promise to be a "pressure group", have fallen short of the mark. It is all very well having demos, but pressure must be applied in a number of other ways too. As you say, education is crucial.(I like that word, from the Latin for "cross"!!)

  2. I think that you're right Juniper. The EDL needs to draw up a clear set of policy demands and campaign for them until they are implemented in full, whereupon it could stand down from street activism. However, thereafter it should maintain a shadow structure to keep a watchful eye for any signs of backtracking by politicians. It should lend (emphasis here upon 'lend') its support to whichever political party, or parties, pledge to fulfil their ‘manifesto’.

    Yes, education certainly is crucial. Unfortunately, our education system from the nursery to the university is currently hell-bent upon indoctrinating our children and young people with dangerous pro-Islamic attitudes.

  3. I think we all agree education is crucial, but it's the last thing kids are going to get at school. More Muslim paedophile and grooming gangs have been bust by the police since the formation of the EDL three years ago than in decades beforehand. We're there and not going away, and that's what's keeping the behaviour of some Muslims towards children in the news, although journalists are loath to admit it. Bearing witness works - demos work!
