    UK: More than 1,000 FGM cases in just three months

    September 25, 2015 1:31 pm By Robert Spencer 11 Comments
    1,000 cases in three months means roughly eleven cases a day. Why is this so widespread, since our moral superiors constantly insist that it has nothing to do with Islam? The answer is that FGM is sanctioned by Islamic law: “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64

    “NHS Records More Than 1,000 FGM Cases In Just Three Months,” by Sarah Ann Harris, The Huffington Post UK, September 23, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
    More than 1,000 cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) were recorded in just three months in the UK, it has been revealed.
    For the quarter April to June this year, there were 1,036 newly-recorded cases of FGM in England, with a total of 1,159 attendances for FGM, according to the Press Association.
    Nine of the individuals were aged under 18 when they were first seen, the data from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) revealed.
    The shocking figures have been made public after the health service began recording incidences of FGM for the very first time.
    Much of the FGM reported may be historic, as the abuse is normally carried out on infants and young teenagers. The NHS data did not specify whether it was carried out in the UK or abroad, as is the case in many instances of FGM.
    Tanya Barron, chief executive of global children’s charity Plan UK, which works to combat FGM worldwide, said: “It’s shocking to see the extent of FGM here in the UK.
    “We’ve seen hugely increased attention on this problem in the past few years and we are now waking up to the scale of this terrible practice.
    “What we must always keep in mind though is that this is not specifically a British problem.
    “FGM is a practice with an inherently global dimension.
    “And while it’s vital that we do everything we can to stop FGM here in the UK, as well as to support the girls and women affected by it, the reality is that this practice won’t end in the UK until it is ended worldwide.”
    FGM is illegal in the UK. It is also illegal to take a female abroad for the purposes of FGM.
    The maximum jail term for carrying out or enabling FGM is 14 years.
    According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), FGM is carried out for social and religious reasons and is an “extreme form of discrimination against women”.
    Babies born to women who have undergone FGM suffer a higher rate of death compared with those born to women who have not undergone the procedure.
    Women with FGM also have increased risk of stillbirth, infants that need resuscitation and low birth weight babies.
    FGM is estimated to lead to an extra one or two baby deaths per 100 deliveries worldwide.
    An estimated 130 million women and girls around the world are through to be living with FGM.
    An international day of zero tolerance of FGM took place earlier this year, with a number of measures, including NHS recording, outlined to help to end the horrifying practice.
    This included better training for frontline health workers on how to communicate with patients about the highly sensitive issue, allowing clinicians to note on a child’s health record if they are at risk of FGM and an additional £2million for a programme backed by Barnardos and the Local Government Association to create a specialised team of social workers.

    Lorry driver reveals how he called police after hearing 'banging' from tanker next to him at M40 services - before 14 suspected illegal immigrants were found hiding inside

    Scott McCrone (inset), 44, had stopped off at Gaydon Service Station in Warwickshire on Tuesday for an afternoon break when he noticed a banging sound coming from a lorry next to him. He initially thought a herd of cows or other animals may be responsible, but the noise was soon joined by shouting. Mr McCrone called police, who opened the back of the truck (left) and discovered a group of 14 suspected illegal immigrants - including seven children - hiding inside it (centre and right). 'It's a bit shocking,' said Mr McCrone, who lives in Scotland and who filmed the incident on video.

    UK: Anti-ISIS artwork banned from free speech exhibit for fear of Muslims

    September 26, 2015 3:55 pm By Robert Spencer 8 Comments
    “Passion for Freedom,” eh? Not so much.
    When did everyone (and I do mean everyone) decide that cowardice and appeasement were the proper responses to violent Islamic intimidation? When did everyone (and yes, I mean everyone) decide that the freedom of speech was expendable enough to be sacrificed, and Sharia blasphemy laws worth submitting to, for the sake of a few more moments of peace?
    The UK is finished as a free society. It’s just a matter of time before chaos engulfs that unhappy land, and the appeasers realize yet again that their submission did not satiate the oppressors.

    “Artwork showing Sylvanian Families terrorised by Isis banned from free speech exhibition,” by Claire Armitstead, Guardian, September 26, 2015 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):
    Visitors to a London exhibition celebrating freedom of expression this week found plenty of familiar taboo-busting work, from Jamie McCartney’s The Great Wall of Vagina, an eight-foot long cast featuring the genitals of 400 women, to Kubra Khademi’s video of an eight-minute walk she made through Kabul in Afganistan, dressed in lushly contoured body armour. But they will have looked in vain for one work detailed in the catalogue by an artist known only as Mimsy.
    Isis Threaten Sylvania is a series of seven satirical light box tableaux featuring the children’s toys Sylvanian Families. It was removed from the Passion for Freedom exhibition at the Mall galleries after police raised concerns about the “potentially inflammatory content” of the work, informing the organisers that, if they went ahead with their plans to display it, they would have to pay £36,000 for security for the six-day show.
    In Isis Threaten Sylvania, rabbits, mice and hedgehogs go about their daily life, sunning themselves on a beach, drinking at a beer festival or simply watching television, while the menacing figures of armed jihadis lurk in the background. “Far away, in the land of Sylvania, rabbits, foxes, hedgehogs, mice and all woodland animals have overcome their differences to live in harmonious peace and tranquility. Until Now,” reads the catalogue note. “MICE-IS, a fundamentalist Islamic terror group, are threatening to dominate Sylvania, and annihilate every species that does not submit to their hardline version of sharia law.”
    The decision to remove the work from Passion for Freedom came after the Mall Galleries consulted the police, who raised “a number of serious concerns regarding the potentially inflammatory content of Mimsy’s work”. The gallery cited a clause in the exhibition contract which allowed it the right to request removal of an artwork.
    The organisers of the not-for-profit organisation said: “To our shock the highlighted work was humorously mocking the despised terrorist organisation that causes suffering to many, not only in the Middle East, but also here, in Europe and the America,” adding that, in view of the decision, the word “uncensored” had been removed from all their publicity for the show….
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    'We're too broke to go on the beat': Police chiefs warn ministers that cuts mean they can't do their job as they threaten to stop street patrols and say they won't be able to protect public from rioters or terrorists

    • Police chiefs have warned ministers cuts could pose risk to security
    • The country’s top police chiefs held a secret summit to discuss cuts
    • They warn fewer officers will be available to tackle national crises like riots

    Police chiefs have given a stark warning to Ministers that the next wave of massive spending cuts poses a ‘considerable risk to national security’, it can be revealed.
    In a confidential top-level report written by senior officers and seen by The Mail on Sunday, a chilling picture emerges of a depleted emergency service, with forces unable to cope with riots, crime rates surging and local patrols a thing of the past.
    The country’s top police chiefs held a secret summit this month to discuss the impact when billions more pounds are slashed from their budgets under Government austerity measures, forcing them to lose thousands more frontline officers.
    Their report has been delivered to Home Secretary Theresa May and top civil servants as Chancellor George Osborne prepares to tell Whitehall the size of the savings it must make over the next four years.

    Police chiefs have given a stark warning to Ministers that the next wave of massive spending cuts poses a ‘considerable risk to national security’

    The police chiefs warn that cutting central grants to forces by more than a quarter by 2020 will mean:

    • The traditional bobby on the beat and patrol car ‘disappear completely’ in some areas, leaving officers just responding to emergencies.


    • Without ‘eyes and ears’ in communities, police are left unable to gather intelligence on criminals and terrorists – with ‘big implications for national security’.


    • Crime levels ‘rise more significantly’ as local prevention work is axed.


    • Far fewer officers can be mobilised to tackle national crises, such as riots.


    • There will be a ‘fundamental change’ in policing, with officers unable to act as ‘society’s safety net’ by attending accidents, looking for missing people and preventing suicides.


    • Some forces go bust as they struggle to get rid of enough officers, without the ability to sack them.

    Sara Thornton, head of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, told the Home Office: ‘Chief constables are extremely concerned about the impact of the forthcoming spending review. They are extremely concerned that the scale of cuts, coupled with changes to the way grant is distributed, will fundamentally change policing in this country.

    We hope that the spending review will be realistic about the level of further cuts that the police can absorb without it impacting negatively on the safety and security that our citizens enjoy.’
    The 43 forces in England and Wales lost £2.3 billion – a quarter of their central grants – over the past five years, forcing them to lose 16,916 officers and 20,441 staff and community support officers. Police strength stood at 126,818 officers in March.
    But as the Government insists public spending must be cut further, while the health, education and overseas aid budgets are protected, chief constables have been bracing themselves for an even bigger hit.

    The secret document sent to Home Secretary Teresa May reveals police concerns over the potential cuts

    The results of the spending review to be announced by the Chancellor on November 25 will probably mean cuts of either 25 per cent or 40 per cent in the Government grant to forces over the next four years.
    At the same time, the Home Office is changing the way it distributes the cash, which could mean rural forces getting more and big cities having to make do with less.
    To consider the threat, there was a ‘specially convened meeting’ of chief constables in London on September 7, attended by Ms Thornton as well as Britain’s top policeman, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe. They discussed the cuts they have already had to impose in the face of rising crime, the complex issues they face such as child abuse, online offences and fraud, and the increased demands from struggling social services and NHS bodies.
    They also examined where the axe might fall to see how they could implement the next round of cuts without further increases in crime. They agreed a 16-page document and rushed it to the Home Office and Treasury Permanent Secretary Sir Nicholas Macpherson.
    They say that 25 to 40 per cent cuts will put ‘the cherished and effective model of policing at risk’. And they warn: ‘We are genuinely concerned that a number of forces may fail as they face even deeper cuts.’
    Because almost all of police budgets go on salaries, the police chiefs say they are ‘deeply concerned’ there will have to be a four-year nationwide recruitment freeze.
    The report admits: ‘At the extreme end of the spectrum there is considerable, albeit reluctant, support for compulsory redundancy to be available to manage significant cuts.’ By getting rid of local officers, the cuts would ‘take the police back to a response based service’ that would spell the end of ‘proactive neighbourhood policing work that the public value and has helped to keep crime down in recent years’.
    Currently, police are the service of last resort – ‘especially after 5pm on Friday when most other agencies close for the weekend’ – but if they no longer have enough officers to respond to traffic accidents, missing people or suicide threats, it will ‘pass on considerable cost to other agencies’ and mean ‘some of the most vulnerable in our society are not protected as society expects’.

    Separate ‘Silver’ and ‘Gold’ groups comprising chief officers, crime tsars, watchdogs and Home Office officials have also been discussing how the axe might fall.
    Documents from one of these groups obtained by this newspaper show that 40 per cent cuts would mean police losing another £2.283 billion by 2020. Even the more likely 25 per cent cuts would be ‘broadly equivalent to the loss of over 40,000 posts’, mostly officers, taking police strength below 100,000 for the first time since the early 1970s.
    ‘The biggest challenge would be whether an effective policing service could be delivered with an officer establishment of 70,000 to 80,000 posts,’ a Silver Group document stated.
    It identified several areas around the country where crucial police activity is at risk. In Lincolnshire, there could be ‘dramatic changes’ such as the end of ‘proactive patrol’ and the scrapping of all Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).
    By 2017-18 the entire force could be ‘unsustainable’, although it may be saved by funding changes that favour rural areas.
    In Lancashire, ‘surveillance capacity is at risk’ as is the local Serious and Organised Crime Unit. The Metropolitan Police in London may have to double its response time for non-emergencies to two hours and is likely to lose 1,000 PCSOs.
    Other forces such as Leicestershire are overhauling the way they handle 999 and 111 calls so more are dealt with solely on the phone or by officers booking an appointment to see crime victims, rather than providing an immediate response. Many forces, including West Midlands, are losing so many officers, particularly in specialist roles, that they will be ‘unable to meet mutual aid obligations’ – meaning they cannot provide reserve strength to other areas dealing with riots, terrorist attacks, manhunts or large public events.
    The stark warnings about the threat of further job cuts and deterioration in the service will alarm rank-and-file leaders gathering at Edinburgh today for the annual National Police Memorial Day.
    Steve White, chairman of the Police Federation, said: ‘The Government is failing to listen and recognise that the threats have never been so great. Compulsory severance – which is just a fancy way of sacking officers and making them redundant – means the very independence of officers will be under threat. The Government has no idea about the very real impact their ill-thought-out plans will have.’
    Mike Penning, Minister for Policing, Crime, Criminal Justice and Victims, said: ‘There is no question that the police still have the resources to do their important work. What matters is how officers and staff are deployed, not how many of them there are in total.’
    Jack Dromey, Shadow Policing Minister, said: ‘We urge Theresa May to look at the evidence, listen to what police forces across the country are telling her and reconsider her reckless proposals.’
    MORE DRASTIC CUTS WILL PUT THE PUBLIC AT RISK: SAYS FORMER HOME SECRETARY DAVID BLUNKETT


    +6


    David Blunkett warns about the risk of drastic cuts

    People are always sceptical of what they call ‘shroud waving’ by key public services and no less so when the police claim that cuts threaten basic services.
    But this time the emergency meeting of chief constables three weeks ago and the 16-page document sent to the Treasury and the Home Secretary have to be taken seriously.
    Experienced chief officers who are not renowned for anti-Government statements, such as Sara Thornton of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, have to be listened to when they warn of a potential meltdown, not just in basic policing in our streets but in the threat to national security.
    Over the past five years, policing in England and Wales have seen draconian reductions of up to a quarter of previous budgets.
    As a former Home Secretary, I am painfully aware that those sorts of cuts, now to be repeated, cannot be made without the removal of frontline officers on our streets and, of course, experienced and expert units that understand intelligence and security challenges and how to prevent and not just deal with critical incidents.
    What is astonishing about the cry of pain from senior officers is that this is a Tory Government threatening the basic fabric of policing.
    Over the past 25 years, a consensus had emerged that restored a commitment across the political divide to neighbourhood policing and the importance of tackling the domestic threat from international terrorism.
    In the years I occupied the seat now filled by Theresa May, I was able to increase the number of trained officers by 15,000 as well as the thousands of community support officers introduced into neighbourhood teams.
    That number has now sadly been reversed and if the top policemen are to be believed, another round of cutbacks will destroy the very essence of the people’s policing service that is rooted back to Robert Peel more than 180 years ago.
    The message is very clear: This time, politicians must heed the warnings of those who have so far implemented reductions in their service in a manner that has sought to protect us from the worst consequences.
    They know better than any of us when further drastic cuts would put us all at risk.


    'Look at what police forces across the country are telling you': Shadow Policing Minister urges Theresa May to stop funding cuts
    By Jack Dromey MP, Shadow Policing Minister
    Policing has been steadily rising on the political agenda over recent months as the impact of the Government’s drastic cuts to the policing budget is increasingly felt, and concern mounts about the consequences to public safety.
    Britain has seen the biggest cuts to any Police Force in Europe. Theresa May has slashed police funding by a quarter since 2010, and as a result, 17,000 police officers have been lost, with 23,000 more at the very least set to go in the next 5 years. It has been impossible for forces to protect their frontline officers. Already, 12,000 frontline officers have gone.
    The Government’s skewed distribution means that some forces have felt the impact of these cuts harder than others. For example, the West Midlands and Northumbria police forces have suffered funding cuts of twice as much as richer Surrey.

    +6


    Jack Dromey, Shadow Policing Minister, said: ‘We urge Theresa May to look at the evidence, listen to what police forces across the country are telling her and reconsider her reckless proposals'

    Now, forces have been told to expect as much as a 40% cut to the policing budget in the Government’s upcoming spending review. Cuts of this scale come on top of the drastic reductions that forces have already had to take on, with serious implications for their ability to protect the public.
    The Police force is not only absolutely crucial to public safety, but is often becoming a service of last resort as healthcare and other public service budgets are slashed too. Police have enough pressures without having to rush people to A&E because there are no ambulances available.
    The Government has quite simply failed to recognise that their haphazard cuts come at a time when the nature of crime is changing and demands on the police are increasing.
    We need a police force that can rise to the challenges of the 21st century – child sexual exploitation, soaring on-line fraud and cybercrime, and the most serious violent and sexual crimes, which are now shown to be rising.
    Most significantly, neighbourhood policing is absolutely crucial in the fight against terrorism. Community bobbies are the eyes and ears on the ground that gain the vital intelligence that can nip terror plots in the bud, and yet Police Community Support Officers are set to be an endangered species by 2020. Senior figures in the Met are right to raise concerns about neighbourhood policing being hollowed out at a time when we most need it to guard against attacks.
    The Government cannot say they haven’t been warned. Labour have long told of the danger of slashing the policing budget at such pace. With senior figures from policing, Parliament and even May’s own benches joining in the chorus telling her that cuts of this scale pose an unacceptable risk to public safety, she can no longer run away from her record.
    May faces a legal challenge from Police and Crime Commissioners over her funding plans. She had to face down Conservative MPs from the West Midlands who joined Labour to plea for fairer funding for their region’s police.
    Just last week, Boris Johnson told City Hall that it cannot be right that the new funding arrangements will skew resources towards rural areas and away from metropolitan regions.
    The National Audit Office and the Home Affairs Select Committee have already warned that the Government are taking dangerous gamble in degrading the frontline services that people rely on. Now, the Police Chief’s Council are taking their turn to sound the alarm.
    The first duty of any Government is the safety and security of its citizens. As her funding cuts become more and more extreme, we urge Theresa May to look at the evidence, listen to what police forces across the country are telling her and reconsider her reckless proposals. The safety of the British public depends on it.

    Majority of Brits Back Brexit for First Time — Poll
    LONDON — Public opinion is warming to the idea of a Brexit, pollsters claim, as a survey reveals that a majority of Britons would rather leave the European Union than remain.
    The survey, which was conducted by YouGov for The Times, shows 40 percent of those polled backing a Brexit, while only 38 percent say Britain should remain a member of the EU.
    The survey marks a positive milestone for Britain’s “leave” campaign, which last lead the polls in November 2014.
    The opposing “stay” campaign enjoyed a ten point lead in June, but observers say its backing has plummeted after the intensification of Europe’s refugee crisis.
    Many Tories want the prime minister to head the “leave” campaign or remain neutral on the issue. However, Cameron has ruled out giving Conservative Party cash or information to pro-European campaigners.
    Like the Conservative Party, Labour is split over Britain’s in/out referendum. Due to be held before the close of 2017, the referendum has been the focus of much controversy in recent months.
    Labour’s shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn and the party’s deputy leader Tom Watson have demonstrated a less neutral position on the referendum than their Conservative Party rivals.
    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell have also said that workers’ rights are a condition of the party’s endorsement of the EU.
    On Sunday, a speech Corbyn was planning on delivering on the European Union was leaked to ex-Europe minister Denis MacShane. The Labour leader sharply criticized the European project, but called for the British government to reform rather than abandon it.
    “I want a different Europe but unlike David Cameron and Nigel Farage I am not prepared to take a risk with our participation in Europe from the EU to the European Court of Human Rights just to pander to those dreaming of the old Europe of populist nationalisms,” Corbyn said.
    “I want to work with progressive and socialist parties and thinkers in Europe in and out of government for a program for relaunching European wide growth based on social justice and productive investment.”
    Cameron has promised to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU prior to the in/out referendum. He says he wants Britain to stay in a reformed EU, but has ruled nothing out if he is unsuccessful in achieving the reforms he is pursuing.
    YouGov’s findings were contradicted by a Survation poll, which found slightly more of those polled would like to see Britain remain in the EU. While 43 percent of respondents said they wanted to stay in Europe, 40 percent backed leaving.
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.

    Refugees Break Into Channel Tunnel As Tension Mounts In Calais…


    Hijrah, a migration to Islamize a new land.
    Via EURO News:
    About 200 migrants broke into the Channel Tunnel from France while several hundred others held up lorries near Calais port on Saturday in renewed tension on the route for migrants trying to reach Britain.
    Scores of migrants forced their way into Eurotunnel’s French terminal overnight, clashing with staff and police and causing a temporary suspension of rail services, Eurotunnel said.
    The company said traffic levels in the tunnel were back to normal later on Saturday following safety checks, though passenger services were expected to run with delays of up to two hours for the rest of the day.
    Roughly 200 migrants entered Eurotunnel’s terminal after midnight by pulling down fencing, with 120 getting into the tunnel before being intercepted inside by French police, the company and police said.
    “Such a large group had no chance of reaching the UK, so this was clearly an organised attack aimed at drawing media attention to the desperate situation of the migrants who are stuck in Calais,” Eurotunnel said in a statement.
    The police made 23 arrests in clashes that left six injured, after heading off the migrants at a junction between the different tunnels 15 km from the French side.
    “This is something new. We have never been faced with something like that. Their determination and aggressiveness are growing,” a police source said.
    Police sources have in recent days pointed to the presence at Calais of militants from “No Borders”, a far-left group that opposes border and immigration controls.
    Calais has long been an immigration flashpoint but in the past year has become part of a wider pan-European crisis, with states struggling to agree on how to handle inflows of people fleeing conflicts or poverty in the Middle East and Africa.
    A tightening of security at the sea port in Calais has prompted increased attempts to access the Channel Tunnel, leading to the deaths of several migrants.
    But migrants also targeted the port in a separate incident on Saturday, attempting to jump on lorries queuing on the approach road to the port, a Reuters photographer on site said.

    Mass migration is harming our society says May: Home Secretary believes huge pressure is being placed on public services and infrastructure

    Theresa May will warn the Tory conference that huge pressure is being placed on public services and infrastructure by economic migrants. She will say: 'There are millions of people in poorer countries who would love to live in Britain, and there is a limit to the amount of immigration any country can and should take.' Based on the current influx, Mrs May says the UK needs to build 210,000 homes every year and find 900,000 extra school places by 2024.

    A student diversity officer who came to prominence in a race row after allegedly tweeting the hashtag #killallwhitemen has been charged by police with sending a threatening communication.
    Bahar Mustafa, of Goldsmiths, University of London, is set to appear at Bromley magistrates court on 5 November.

    The 28-year-old from Edmonton, north-east London, faces two charges. One is sending a communication conveying a threatening message between 10 November 2014 and 31 May 2015. The second is for sending a grossly offensive message via a public communication network between 10 November 2014 and 31 May 2015.
    Mustafa was initially accused of racism for asking white men not to attend a students’ union meeting intended for ethnic minority women and non-binary attendees.
    She then became embroiled in a separate row, accused of using the hashtag #killallwhitemen on her Twitter account, which has since been deleted.
    A Met police spokesman said in a statement: “A woman interviewed under caution regarding a complaint of racially motivated malicious communication made on a social media network has been summonsed to court.”
    Mustafa is neither an employee of Goldsmiths nor a student, but an employee of the independent students’ union, elected by union members.
    Mustafa remained in her position as welfare and diversity officer after a petition for a motion of no confidence fell short of the 3% of union members required to trigger a poll.
    After the furore, Mustafa denied that her initial request for white men to stay away from a union meeting was racist or sexist, and said she had received rape and death threats.
