Whose fault is the jihadi bride? Certainly not her astonishing dad

He blamed the police for his daughter travelling to Syria, never mentioning that he took her to Islamist rallies

9:00 AM

Like you, I suspect, I have been terribly worried these last few weeks over the plight of 15-year-old Amira Abase. Amira fled the country on 17 February in order to take up an exciting and challenging position as an in-house whore for the vibrant and decapitating warriors of the Islamic State somewhere in Syria, probably Raqqa. She travelled with two like-minded school friends from the local caliphate of Bethnal Green and not much has been heard of her since. We wring our hands in anguish at the fate which might have befallen this girl. It is of course commendable that she, along with so many other fervent young British Muslim women, should wish to become a jihadi bride. What kind of life would she be forced to endure in the Islamophobic hell of the United Kingdom? As Russell Brand has sagely pointed out, these kids feel they have no future here, they are without hope, innit.

But the real worry is that Amira may have taken up with a jihadi who may be less than liberal in his views about, say, women’s equality and the very real struggles endured by lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgendered folk. Poisonous views quite counter to those which we have expensively inculcated in her. I can imagine Amira’s husband coming home one evening after a long day of decapitating and standing before her, scimitar in one hand, head of a Christian in the other, and expressing perhaps slight but meaningful worries over the rectitude of gay adoptions and, more so, IVF treatment for homosexual married couples. ‘I’m just not convinced, love,’ I hear him saying, looking a little forlorn. And Amira replying: ‘You’re dripping infidel blood on the carpet, Tariq.’

‘But we haven’t got a carpet. It’s just compacted mud and dust.’

‘Um. Yes, you’re right. I want to go home to Bethnal Green now, please.’


This is the problem — that Amira may not have thought things through.

We know why she went. Because, as Russell told us, of the lack of hope and the Islamophobia. And also, according to the BBC and the Guardian and indeed her own father, Hussen Abase, because the more usually fascistic police were less than diligent in trying to stop her getting to Gatwick airport. It is undoubtedly the job of the police to stop Muslims going anywhere near Gatwick airport — not because they might blow up planes or anything like that, you total ’phobe, but because we will all be greatly diminished by their departure from our country. It is the job of the police to enjoin them to stay here, inshallah.

Or it may be that — again according to the liberals — she was ‘groomed’ online by the deranged Islamists. Grooming, incidentally, was once something that chimps did to one another, or what my colleague Melissa Kite might do to a horse. But it has been appropriated by the left and now means nothing at all, except to absolve the groomee of even the slenderest vestiges of culpability. To be groomed is to be a victim, and that’s an end to the discussion.

Or it could be — as again, the left has it — that the intrusive behaviour of our security services somehow radicalised Amira and made her want to pack her bags for Syria immediately. Or that the glamour and chutzpah of the Islamic State maniacs had much the same effect upon Amira and her friends, that, say, Justin Bieber has on other girls of her age. This hilarious thesis is quite au courant — largely because, like all of those other theses, it removes any notion of blame from Amira and from her family and from the mosques and from the local Muslim community. They are never to blame. It is always someone else’s fault — the filth, the spooks, the vicious anti-Islam mindset of the British people, the oh-so pernicious influence of the internet, glamour, grooming and so on. That’s what did it, that’s what made Amira head for Gatwick. All that stuff.

Amira’s dad, Hussen, cleaved to the view that the police were to blame. Why didn’t they warn him? Certainly his lovely daughter was never exposed by the family to the horrors of Islamic extremism, perish the thought, he told the press. Any intimation of that and he’d have come down hard on her, he opined — just before the video was released. The footage of Hussen Abase on a march in London organised by the proscribed terrorist organisation Al-Muhajiroun, holding a burning American flag and screaming ‘Allahu Akbar!’, his face a rictus of hatred, standing near Michael Adebowale, who was one of the murderers of British fusilier Lee Rigby, and just behind the extremist nutjob Anjem Choudary.

And Hussen was kind enough to take Amira to two marches, much as any dad would do with his kids on a quiet Saturday, either demand the death of the cockroach infidels or visit Ikea — what’s it to be, children?

Hussen is an Ethiopian and of course — of course — unemployed. He came to this country, he said, for democracy and freedom. And also, presumably, so that he and his appalling family can be heavily subsidised by the taxpayer while they scream for the destruction of the civilisation which has treated them with such ludicrous, arguably insane generosity. I came here for the right to demand your utter and complete destruction while being extravagantly remunerated for so doing. Any problem in that?

Hussen Abase is just the one we know about: I wonder how many others there are who were similarly disposed, the dads or the mums or the imams or the state school teachers. We know about Hussen because some sharp-eyed journo spotted his face in the crowd. What is he doing here? Wouldn’t he be happier in Raqqa, with his daughter? Amira is the victim of extremism, Hussen later told the press. Yes indeed — your own.

    Well, it doesn’t get put much better than this Rod.

    I can’t help wondering if his Mr Bean teddy is called Mohammed. Very popular name for teddy bears – in Sudan I believe.

    I’m still dismayed by the Select Committee’s lapse in not considering the family background as cause. It’s the obvious place to look – though not if you want to sustain the RoP fallacy. It seems to me that these groupies were simply doing what they’d been brought up to think was right. They’d been pre-groomed. They accordingly debunked from an islamic, mere household that hated the evil society that nourished and protected them, to an entire, islamist (I prefer “islamic”) proto caliphate that’s, well, …………….. how would you describe it? They scuttled off to indulge the whole mohammedan dream.

    On top of this we should know by now that mohammedism never takes blame. Being “perfect” it is irreproachable. It will find fault in everything and everyone other than itself – as we saw in this case. Not untypical.

    So ………….. a cult whose membership detests us and wants our overthrow. But it takes all we have to give; no gratitude or even simple appreciation. Parasites do this.

    What do we do with parasites?

    • Infidelissima

      ‘What do we do with Parasites’?

      we feed them, we clothe them, we home them, we give them places of worship, freedom and safety, a future for their brainless inbred children, wait until they’re big and strong enough to mass rape our daughters, and then we apologise to them for existing.

      • James R

        Precisely,Infidelissima.Thank you for posting this.Couldn’t agree more.
        And thank you,Rod.

    • MikeH

      One would think possessing a teddy bear is a tad un-islamic, following the logic that even depictions of people or animals is a big no-no?

      Poor Mo the ted probably met a sorry end just after the picture was taken, spat upon, clobbered with the sole of a shoe and deposited in the nearest litter bin. Assuming of course a moderate punishment was prescribed.

      • sebastian2

        The teddy was already looking decidedly glum. I think he knew what was coming to him. Once stuffed is bad enough. But twice?

        A few more stuffings and he’ll feel quite British.

  • Rik

    Why Rod!! Who would have thought it,you turned out to be a racist,islamophobic swivel eyed loon who dares to tell the truth.
    GOOD ON YOU We are all sick to death of the insults and lies that the msm constantly spouts about those who dare to criticise Islam.
    Cancel the passports of these silly b*tches and every other idiot that follows them then deport their families.

    • Farage’s Fried Chicken

      We are deeply shocked by this F E C K I N selective lack of parenting when it comes to white girls in the F E C K I N centre of the universe of the small-minded in … Rother/dale. You live there Rik? You certainly sound like you do, you nutter.

      • Bozza ‘n’ Dave

        Tell ’em buddy. Give ’em stick. They are scared of you.
        The better argument always wins on ‘personal insult day’.

      • Patrick Roy

        LOL God forbid you point the finger at the police for Rotherham! Get the cross and nails out !!

      • Dogsnob

        Indeed. Three young women are allowed by an uncaring police force to slip the net and fly out to Syria to aid and abet murderers; total lack of sympathy with distraught, teddy-clutching, hate-filled jihadist parent of one. What a callous British public we have become eh?

        And yet, just because thousands of under-age white girls hang out with their friends in their own neighbourhoods, and are groomed and sexually exploited by muslim men, people get all uppity! Sheesh kebab!

        • Bozza ‘n’ Dave

          Fathers for Justice in Rochdale.
          Where are they, dogsnob?
          In the pub?

          • Dogsnob

            I think the point you raise here is one of the most important, central and tragic issues in present British society and goes on almost without comment.
            Absent fathers, deserted mothers and state-encouraged bastudisation (modswerve) have pretty much become the recognised norm. With that, millions of children – despite the massive efforts of the women who are left with the bringing up – are left vulnerable to precisely this sort of abuse.
            The police, social services and all other agencies have proved that they are so patently inept and unable to fill the protective void left by the fathers who don’t father.
            Our women are being let down, criminally, and no-one seems to care.
            Very pertinent point and thank you.

          • Farage’s Fried Chicken

            We are getting there, slowly, but we are finally f e c k i n getting there.

            The reason why that is exactly the f e c k i n point is because I can’t see any f e c k i n mussie fathers commenting here, only f e c k i n f e c k e d in their brains white fathers, on occasion they are not even that.

          • Dogsnob

            Where is it we’re getting to again?

          • Farage’s Fried Chicken

            There. I am so glad you’re asking.

          • Dogsnob

            You’re 100% sure there are no ‘mussie fathers’ commenting here?

          • Patrick Roy

            Thank you Dogsnob. And we can blame Labour for their cradle-to-grave empty promises to women.

          • Dogsnob

            All of Labour’s promises are campaign hoodwinks. Tories, same. So they neither of them promise now; they ‘pledge’.
            Yeah right.

      • Wessex Man

        Ha ha said the clown!

    • Mike

      Indeed. The more that go the better

    • mrs 1234

      Rod has had the courage to tell it like it is for a very long time now.

      • Bertie

        One assumes that this is because he’s somewhat of a Lefty so more likely to get away with it than say a hard lined Thatcherite.

        But good for him – finally confirming what so many of us on the Right have been claiming for 20+ years.

        Given Mr Hussein has obstructed justice,lied,and tried to besmirch the Police by putting them blame on them, despite being closely linked to such hate marches(and indeed taking his daughter on them too) then I’d give the bastard 10 years in jail – no parole.

        {our encourager les autres of course. Upon completion of his sentence both he,and his family to all be deported back to Ethiopia.

        His sort are not welcome,and it does the hard working immigrants no service either to be tarred by his treasonous activities.

    • Ambientereal

      Islamophobia is paying back at last. It impulses those young (extremist) girls in the arms of their beloved islam. Finally they show what they are and go to where they deserve. Let them never back!!

      • milford

        After they’ve availed themselves of our free education to university level.

        • Ambientereal

          Right!! Precisely that is one thing those girls would never have in islamic countries, I mean a decent education and freedom. And what do they do with it? run into slavery. That is because education and freedom (and even life and health) are valueless in islam. And so anyone can see that islam is a wrong belief for the humankind.

        • G B

          I suppose that means that we shouldn’t expect to retrieve the money from their students loans then!

      • Verbatim

        Oh, if only it were this way! But there will be armies of avaricious lawyers invoking some arcane human rights law or other to make sure these people are returned and become our problems all over again. The legal profession really is full of vermin, I’m sorry to say.

        On another note; I’m living in Europe and have been here for a while, having lived in Austria all through 2011. I’ve noticed the appalling behaviour of Muslim male children; they are prized and valued, where the girls are not and the latter are expected to fulfill obligations from the start. The boys are their ‘little emperors’ who can run riot and do what they like, and it got me thinking thus:

        If the ‘little emperors’ raised to be so significant in Muslim societies who then move to live in the west where no such significance applies, surely the move for these young males to extremist death cults and terrorism to a degree “re-instates” their importance, thus removing the ‘shame’ of being nobody. Conversely, girls who are worth NOTHING in the west in their Muslim communities (in the western world where girls are generally VALUED) have also the chance to prove they are SOMETHING by going to support extremists groups. This occurs across the educated and un-educated social strata in the Muslim communities living in the west.

        In short, Muslims themselves are the problems and their fetishizing of male-ness at the expense of females and the society at large. I think it’s certainly worth discussing, at least.

        • John Clegg

          Most thinking people already know, (quoting your last paragraph), “Muslims themselves are the problems”.

          • Albert Zbingswiki

            Yeah, 4 paragraphs could have been compressed to those 5 words.

    • Patrick Roy

      A phobia is an irrational fear. I think it’s time for a new word – Islamaloathia.

      • Arjuna Krishna-Das

        It’s spelt islamofauxbia actually

    • Mode4

      I didn’t read a reference to race, are we reading the same article or is the racist word just being used as a slur by someone who doesn’t understand its meaning.

  • Mow_the_Grass

    Mr Liddle – I salute you.
    telling it as it is.
    Kol hakavod (well done) as we say .

    • sebastian2

      Kol hakavod indeed!!

    • James Jones

      “telling it as it is.”

      No he is not.

      Presumably he cannot get a straight piece decrying the dangerous medieval death cult published. He therefore uses sarcasm to get his point across without using banned words and phrases.

      • Mow_the_Grass

        Sometimes you have to employ irony to make the case.
        he has done this very well

  • trekker2002

    I have just read two of Ayyan Hirsi Ali’s books in which she advocates that Muslims and the rest of us stop saying that extremism is ‘Nothing to do with Islam’ and wake up. It has everything to do with Islam and the way that many families imbue their children with an unquestioning mindset towards the faith. It is that which then leaves them with inadequate critical thinking skills to defend them against the violent extremists rhetoric even when their parents practice a peaceful version of the faith.

    • Mow_the_Grass

      Many muslims send their young children to the madrassa – where they do nothing else but learn to recite passages from the quran by heart.
      No critical thinking is taught here – just blind unquestioning adherence to a cult masqurading as a religion.
      Dumbed down from the getgo.

      • Hybird

        And that would be no problem if Islam really was a Religion of Peace – as they claim – but it isn’t. Unfortunately, the awful book these children are forced to memorise is stuffed full of instructions to do violence against non-believers and the awful man who they are told is “perfect” and should be their ultimate role model was actually a mass-murdering barbarian war-lord.
        And still people ask how they become “radicalised.”

        • you forgot: child molester.

          • will91

            This is a religion founded by a paedophile war lord. Honestly, how well did we expect this to turn out?

          • Fred Collier

            I wondered how long it would be before somebody trotted out the tired ‘paedophile war lord’ thing. Next up: ‘strawman argument’.

          • Are you denying he was then? Please provide proof …

          • Fred Collier

            Just going through my photo collection.

          • will91

            Ahhh thank goodness you’re here Fred. Please put my mind at ease regarding my earlier misapprehensions…

          • Fred Collier

            I think that’s for you to do Will, after all, as you have already stated, they are your misapprehensions.

          • will91

            Jeez leftards are so lazy these days…

          • Fred Collier

            Your wit is as deft as your wisdom.

          • will91

            Bravo Fred, incredible intellectual acrobatics! You’re doing well at dodging and ducking to avoid engaging with the original point. Lazy leftard.

          • Fred Collier

            Will, you are too easily impressed. What you describe as incredible intellectual acrobatics I call ‘thinking’. If by the original point you mean Hybird’s comment then I would say that plenty of religions have similar features, none of which are regarded as overtly, or fundamentally, violent. Twice you have made the leftard jibe, and it wasn’t funny the first time…so, in short, you really ‘must try harder’.

          • will91

            I refer you to the historical assertions I made regarding the prophet (s#*t be upon him).

            On a sidenote, you must try harder, the core tenets of martyrdom and jihad are innately violent, thus I dispatch your flawed argument you made in response to hybird.

          • Fred Collier

            Before I answer the question, can I just make certain what it is? When you say ‘historical assertions’, do you mean 1) assertions you made earlier in the discussion 2) assertions relating to history or 3) you mistyped ‘hysterical’ (which I suspect). I am sorry but the offcuts from your butchery of the English language are hard to digest.

          • will91

            Three hours ago you criticised my “tired” “straw man argument” regarding the prophet been a paedophile warlord. Those are the assertions I’m referring to. I made those assertions you “challenged” them.

            I’ve never had to hold somebody’s hand and walk them through the discussion we’ve been having.

          • Fred Collier

            Nope, have a read back and then a long think, and you’ll probably find that you’re holding your own sweaty paw. I don’t deny he had a relationship with a young girl, but paedophile whilst ancient in origin is modern in your antagonistic meaning. No matter, it doesn’t offend me. I didn’t challenge the accuracy of your words, my comment referred to the fact that this description, unhelpful as it is, is also tired now, and frankly doesn’t reflect the level of thought needed to sort out this challenge to society in a reasonable manner.

          • will91

            Historically men have married young children. Unfortunately, 1.2 billion people believe one such person to be the perfect moral being. That’s a problem.

          • Fred Collier

            No, that’s a truism followed by an exaggeration, but I suppose you are right in that it is a problem, yours.

          • will91

            As of 2010 the global Muslim population was in fact 1.8 Billion people. Look it up.

            A problem for who? A problem for you too my friend.

          • Fred Collier

            Hi: why the 1.2/1.8 billion difference ?

          • will91

            Various polling data exists. The last one was a Pew poll. I’d go with that.

          • Fred Collier

            So, inaccuracies even with the total population,let alone whether they all think exactly the same thing. Now that really is lazy. I thought I already told you to try harder. I’ll stop responding to you if you don’t stop being silly. Think on, come back soon.

          • will91

            Woah, Woah, Woah calm down dear. Now now, we’re not exactly going to go to every single person and ask them the same question are we you silly billy 🙂 That’d take an inordinate amount of time and energy. To ask nearly 2 billion people: Who is the most important person in your life? We come to decisions about the world we live in and peoples attitudes with a degree of inevitable generalisation. Generally, the majority of Muslims around the world would profess that the prophet is the perfect role model. A person they should try to emulate.

          • Fred Collier

            Now it’s ‘calm down dear’? How many of these second hand put downs are you going to use? Next you’ll be telling me I am ‘tough in logic, tough on the causes of logic’. I think what you might have done is confused numbers with opinions. Frankly woeful

          • will91

            Yawn, your struggling to respond to any of the points that are being raised. Better luck next time chap, you’ve given it your best shot. Unfortunately, your capacity to grapple with the issue at hand is like your humour – non-functioning.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            So what do you deny?
            That mo was a warlord, thief, had a hand in many murders?

          • Fred Collier

            erm, no. Don’t think I denied anything, other than Will’s attempts at stringing a thought together. So, you know, think on.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            Intellectual genius. You’re just too good.

          • Fred Collier

            In batting away daft comment, certainly I am. Thank you.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            Or an apologist fckwit, which is more what I was getting at.

          • Rex

            If by the original point you mean Hybird’s comment then I would say that
            plenty of religions have similar features, none of which are regarded
            as overtly, or fundamentally, violent

            Do list out the ‘plenty of’ religions, apart from Christianity. And also let us know of the Christian, Zoroastrian, Hindu, Sikh, Shinto and Pastafarian terrorists running amok, blowing themselves up and beheading unbelievers based on plainly written instructions and commandments in their religions’ teachings that we’re apparently ignoring.

          • Fred Collier

            I think you were doing ok until you mentioned pastafarianism…then you just looked a bit silly. Why don’t you do the research on Sikh, Hindu and Buddhist atrocities and then get back to us. Chop chop.

          • Rex

            Why don’t you do your research on non Abrahamic religions instructing followers to go and kill in the name of the religion before looking like an ignoramus?
            Would love to read about Vedas/Gita quoting Hindus killing non Hindus (the religion has no concept of conversion,by the way) or Sikhs going around killing people because their holy book told them to? And slap yourself before you say Sikh terrorism or Gujarat riots, neither of those were due to the teachings of the religions themselves and the Gujarat riots started over a Muslim gang burning alive a train coach load of Hindus. And I haven’t even gotten to Buddhists killing in the name of the Buddha yet, since that’s apparently so common.Chop chop indeed.

          • Fred Collier

            Sorry, still reading up on pastafarianism.

          • Rex

            Yeah you do that. May his noodly appendage confer some common sense on you.
            Ramen.

          • Fred Collier

            Common sense indeed. Relax a little…all I did was suggest that had these girls been groomed by paedophiles they would have received more sympathy. That’s my point, and all the dribbling nutters on here have kind of proved me right. As for your point, fine, if that’s what you think, fine.

          • Rex

            I was addressing your statement that implied all religions were equal where killing others was concerned, when they’re demonstrably not.

          • Fred Collier

            well, most of the major ones are.

          • Hybird

            Hendrick – if I wrote down all the “Perfect Man’s” faults it would be a very, very long list.

      • WirralBill

        “No critical thinking is taught here” ——– That doesn’t sound much different from the average school, these days.

    • Robbydot1

      They actually aren’t allowed to query anything in the Koran, to do so would be to question the word of Allah and that’s strictly verboten.

    • Mc

      My problem with Hirsi’s thesis is that she believes Islam needs a reformation. While a theoretically sound idea, I cannot see Islam undergoing a reformation any time soon.

      • Hybird

        Islam will only undergo a reformation when the Kaaba has been obliterated and Muslims are made aware that Allah was powerless to prevent it.

        • Ivan Ewan

          Agree in general, but bear in mind that iconoclasts within Islam don’t give a fig about the Kaaba any more.

          • Hybird

            I have had this argument with a few Muslims over the years and they all seem to believe that it would not be possible for the West to destroy the Kaaba – because Allah would not allow it. Perhaps we should test that theory one day.

            The Saxons probably had similar beliefs before Charlemagne destroyed the Irminsul and showed them that their gods were powerless to stop him.

          • Ivan Ewan

            It’s true that most Muslims are not iconoclasts, yes. Just bear in mind that if you force a Muslim to choose between Allah being powerless or Islamic State iconoclasm, don’t bet too heavily on the former. You could hurt their poor brains in the short term but in the long term, I think a largely iconoclastic Islam would be marginally more dangerous than what there is now.

            So if you were to destroy the Kaaba, it would have to be as part of a simultaneous campaign to completely break the geopolitical (and in Europe, communal) power that Islamists have built up over the years.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            A couple of nukes will solve the problem.

          • Donafugata

            Exactly, destruction of the Kaaba during the hadj.

      • Yes, Islam is unique: Mohammed wasn’t a prophet and Allah is not a name of God. It’s built on a house of cards. To analyse it is to destroy it. In all the other major religions there is genuine spiritual knowledge mixed in with human wisdom and error. Islam is different – it has absolutely no spiritual core to it at all, and its central beliefs are totally wrong.

        • sebastian2

          Which is why it prohibits any kind of doubt or question. It is vulnerable to both.

          Tom Holland’s filmed account of the possible historical origins of the quran was pulled. Not because it was wrong. Not just because it was “offensive”. But because it was right. And it was fearful mohammedans that halted it.

        • WTF

          What is ‘spiritual knowledge’ supposed to mean ?

          Knowledge is normally if not exclusively based on proven scientific fact which rules out a god of any kind.

          Religion is a man made construct that was originally developed to explain away things that happened that couldn’t be explained at the time scientifically. Additionally it was a mechanism whereby those desiring control over others, could exercise it under a fictitious all seeing entity. Basically an early form of social engineering using an invisible super being instead of draconian state legislation of the kind we see today.

          • Baldedash – but there’s some truth in what you say. There’s no point getting into a detailed theological discussion, but, yes, one may ‘know’ these things. And yes they may be known in a ‘scientific’ manner.

        • Rex

          Reform would imply removal of backward beliefs or curtailing of existing power structures (as with the Reformation with a capital R did to the Catholic church in the middle ages). Islam declares itself perfect, any analysis, let alone criticism is considered blasphemy and attracts the death sentence, so it’s a long way away from any sort of reform yet. Not to mention the Hotel California death clause for apostasy.

    • Aporia

      Actually, I’m beginning to think it has more to do with ‘us’. Or, more precisely, it has more to do with the new, PC moral code: moral relativism (who’s to say X is better than Y?); non-judgementalism (who are you to say that?); and state-enforced multiculturalism.

      To be sure, Islamic extremism is the primary cause, and has everything to do with Islam. But it’s enabled, and even encouraged, by all of the above. We’ll win the battle against Islamic extremism when the Left, in particular, begins to treat Islamic extremism in the same (non-relativistic, highly judgmental) way that it treats, for example, the BNP.

      Unfortunately, rectifying this seems beyond the scope of government, since it would require a sea-change in the prevailing cultural attitude in Britain, a bottom-up move from relativism to a confident and unashamed affirmation of the superiority of Western values over Islamism. That’s the real challenge.

      • James Jones

        “when the Left, in particular, begins to treat Islamic extremism in the same”

If anybody is the victim in all this, it is us, people who are not of Islamic persuasion.

      As with almost all photo shoots, it is reasonable to believe that the photo was staged to put across a particular point: my daughter and I are victims and all I have left of her is a teddy bear. She was such an innocent, impressionable child that she still clutched soft toys at night and held tea parties for her dolls.

      • Hybird

        “She was such an innocent, impressionable child that she still clutched soft toys at night and held tea parties for her dolls.”
        Just like Mohammad’s child-bride Ayesha was when he consummated his marriage to her – but not nearly as young, then. Little Ayesha was nine years old and playing on her swing with her dolls when Mo had her brought to him. What a role model that man was!

    • lmda

      The only thing I found remotely likeable about Hussen Abase was that phantom of queasy embarrassment on his face as he held that teddy bear, – but, alas, it probably wasn’t shame but only fear that some excitable co-religionist, seeing him clutching such an obvious symbol of Western decadence, would deduce he was an apostate.

    • MikeF

      At some point they might become very unhappy and start regarding the muslims in the way they now view the ‘white working class’. Remember all those groups don’t actually care about anything but themselves – it is just that they can’t admit as much and always need to pretend that they act in someone else’s interest.

  • Robbydot1

    The press keep getting it wrong on the real blame here and its only Rod Liddle & Douglas Murray who get it right. This man is fully responsible for whatever happens to his daughter and most of us couldn’t give a s*** !

    The killing of that extremist Muslim the other day in London is now being called a terrorist act by the establishment and the press when thats hardly the case. A terrorist act is a criminal act that is directed at the state or the general public in order to destabilise the state. This assassination appears to be simply two Islamic religious factions trying to remove each others threat to their power. Its like a mafia style ‘turf war’ with religious dogma being the motivation instead of running drugs and prostitution.

    That said though, we’ve seen many cases of drugs and prostitution directly involved with the religion of peace so perhaps its better to describe it as a Mafia style operation for control of their ’empire’ with religion& suicide death squads thrown in for good measure.

    These girls will all have had arranged marriages waiting for them. Does nobody ever ask the parents of these girls what were their marriage plans?

            What’s the betting that if they ever get out of the situation they’ve plunged themselves into (personally I do not want to see them back in Britain and deplore the official appeals for a swift return) they will – one or more of these:
            a) make a fortune from the book (there will surely be one).
            b) insist it wasn’t the real islam.
            c) become the heroines of UK mohammedan apologists.
            d) look forward to going back because it’s better than the kuffir west.
            e) give birth and apply for benefits.
            f) shake hands and have tea with an unctious Chief Constable.

            Either way, it’s not an attractive possibility – any of it. Unless, of course, they renounce mohammedism entirely, which seems unlikely.

          • cartimandua

            One or more of the kids who have gone were from families of previous Gitmo residents who have been lauded by the Left and given comp.

    • Ahobz

    She was groomed just as victims of “those gangs” were groomed and the vulnerability was from the same cause, inherited trauma , neglect, and possibly even abuses of all kinds.
    The more fundy the family the worse girls are treated.

    • MikeF

      The girls who were the victims of ‘those gangs’ did not volunteer for what happened to them. They may have been subjected to an initial bit of ‘grooming’ i.e. fake concern and flattery, but basically they were raped after being drugged and/or threatened with violence. There is a fundamental – rather approppriate word – difference between the two situations.

      • cartimandua

        The gang victims were all groomed by a pretty boy who persuaded them he was their boyfriend (with an exciting car drugs cigs and drink).
        That’s how they do it. They give kids an emotional experience which makes tripe “feel” true.

        • MikeF

          “It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated. There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone. Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators.”
          Professor Alexis Jay – Report into Child Sexual Abuse in Rotherham.
          That’s how they do it.

          • cartimandua

            They all began with an apparently friendly and engaging pretty boy. Jihadi brides are likely to die . Medical treatment will not be available and where it is it will be given to “fighters”. There was a radio item where a woman observed a Jihadi bride left to bleed from miscarriage. That’s if they don’t do something wrong and are murdered or die in conflict.
            They have been trafficked these Jihadi brides and it is a core value of ours to care about children even stupid ones.
            As I said the grooming victims were often in care which made them “needy”. The multiculti myth about “lovely” Muslim families is just a myth. They produce needy children who don’t give a rats about their parents because their attachment has been harmed by the way their Mothers and Grandmothers are treated under Islam.
            One at least of the girls who went were Somali. We all know about FGM and Somali women.

  • David

    The most wretched part of this whole affair was the pathetic spectacle of the British Police grovelling and snivelling for not having stopped this girl leaving in the first place – obviously without having bothered to check whether her father was an Islamist apologist beforehand!

    I find this so gruesome because it’s effectively the British state bowing and cowtowing to terrorist sympathisers, automatically assuming it is in the wrong.

    Next time I get a speeding ticket, somebody remind me to blame the Police for not slowing me down beforehand. Oh, and I want a full public apology for this, broadcast on the national BBC news, too!

    • Callan

      Don’t forget them having to consult “community leaders” before carrying out an operation and taking their shoes off before entering a home to execute a search warrant. With all this grovelling is it any wonder the terrorist rabble rousers and the paedophiles believe they are immune to prosecution. Wretched indeed. A large part of the blame rests squarely with Scarman and McPherson who have police leaders quaking in their boots at the thought of transgressing the politically correct mantra or causing offence to the “minorities”.

      • Donafugata

        You are absolutely right, they have no respect for anyone who grovels or is reasonable and tolerant, it is seen as a sign of weakness.

        Is it any wonder they now think they own the place ?

        • milford

          Agreed but nobody has any respect for those who grovel and rightly so.

    • Aporia

      I too found this enraging. But what’s notable about the families’ demands for an apology is their assumption that the police ought to have had been involved in the first place. Because this contradicts the narrative of the Muslim advocacy groups: that the police are too involved in the ‘Muslim community’, the ‘Muslim community’ is sick of being targeted, so on and so forth.

      What would they have the police do? Either they play Mummy and Daddy to every Muslim teenager in Britain (conveniently absolving the real parents of their abject failure to raise a child with the most rudimentary moral compass), and face accusations of ‘institutional discrimination’; or hold off, as the advocacy groups say the ‘Muslim community’ want, and face accusations of a dereliction of some ill-defined duty of care (!) by the parents, the very people whose duty that was.

      It perhaps says more about Britain and the prevailing attitude towards the state, though, that the police felt it necessary to offer an apology. After all, the demand for an apology did not come solely from the parents. Many on the Left, in particular, asked questions of the police which ought to have been directed at the parents. But then, I suppose it might have been ‘culturally insensitive’ to suggest that having raised a Jihadi-whore could indicate bad parental practice.

      • bobo

        “……….their abject failure to raise a child with the most rudimentary moral compass…….”

        Sadly, you’re wrong there. They raised them with the Islamic moral compass, which is oriented directly opposite to our own.

        • David

          In other words, an ‘immoral compass’. Islamism is the antithesis of moral behaviour, it is blood-thirsty sadism done for debauched political ends.

          • bobo

            But its all what Allah wants, apparently: the beheadings, the Yezidi slave girls, the destruction of ancient monuments, etc ad nauseam.

            Quite frankly I’m not comfortable sharing a planet with islam, much less a country.

        • Aporia

          Correct, they may have succeeded in raising their child to their moral standards, but only under under moral relativism does this entail real success. In absolutist terms, they have failed, and ought to be held to account for that failure.

          Having said that, I know many perfectly moral Muslims, but in my experience a Muslim’s morality is inversely proportionate to his/her devoutness. For example, the more devout Muslims I know are incredibly anti-Semitic, whereas the more casual (or merely nominal) Muslims are not. Seems to be the case in general.

          • Janet

            Anti-semitic, or anti-Israel? Easily mixed these days and of course they must not be. A more devout Muslim may be more involved in his community, on the news track, and thus more aware of the actions of Israel, or more independent of media spin, and make uncomplimentary statements. He may also be less than careful about mixing in the old anti-semitic (in the sense of racial) terms, but that’s a peripheral issue, really, not a proof of racism. I personally am against most of Israel’s actions but I do not attribute it to their genetic makeup, or to their religion (it’s rather more like their apostasy from their religion), and I do not suffer those who do.

            But your point about there being no basis of criticism of their parenting in a secular, relativized society is very funny. They can truly only be criticized from an ‘absolutist’ perspective. That’s why Pope Francis’ comments on the matter make me gag, his liberal gang having carried the contagion right into the Church.

The short-term expense would be a fraction of the long-term financial burden on the country, both in terms of welfare benefits and security, as well as bringing us peace of mind by ridding us of as many followers of that toxic faith as is possible.

    • Yes, that needs to be made into a serious political policy. It should NOT be regarded as extremist.

      Add to that, Theresa May’s intention to bring that contrived and wholly bogus term ‘Islamophobia’ up to race-hate crime status, then the scene is set for our post-Enlightenment societies to be thrown back to the dark ages. One of the cornerstones of modern civilisation is that which the Enlightenment gifted us: to have the right to criticise religion.

      Islam, categorically, is a religion and not a race. It occurs to me there was an earlier attempt on the part of that major architect of multi-cult and social programming, Blair, to conduct via legislation an outrageous revisionist assault on this basic axiom; a move which was, thankfully, roundly rejected. Seems May wishes to carry on Blair’s work.

      • amac

        I hope she does because the ones who use the phrase are Muslims and the hard of thinking left. It is a term used to decry people who question the religion of peace . Next time you give Islam a deserved kicking and someone calls you an Islamophobe you can sue them for racially abusing you ,pointing out that telling the truth is not a hate crime.

      • Hippograd

        Islam, categorically, is a religion and not a race.

        So what? The race-hate laws were the thin end of the wedge. Intentionally so. And Islam can’t be separated from race because most Muslims are non-white. The combination of race and religion is particularly vibrant in the case of this group:

        Incidentally, many Somalis have come to Britain as immigrants recently,
        where they are widely admired for their strong work ethic, respect for
        the law and keen, piercing, intelligence.

What percentage of them ever became assimilated and economically productive?How many of them have never worked at all? If Britain was to enforce its right to require that claimants make their claims in the first safe country, the problem would be minimized. Surely all the ones who become terrorists, camp followers or terror proponents have forfeited their right to UK residency? The removal of undesirables should not even be a party political issue, purely one of national security.

    So the father is another unemployed third world immigrant who hates this country and all it stands for. No doubt his inability to find work and support his large family will be down to racism or Islamophobia just like huge numbers of his ilk.

    Very little love for Islam and muslims in this article and commentaries. Unerstandably so. However, it seems to me that the real fault is to be found in ethnic Westerners who have held the gate open to these people, and who stubbornly refuse to close the gate.

    • mohdanga

      They are either white guilt liberals (even the masquerading David Cameron Tories) who believe they are doing penance for perceived sins of the white, British empire or they have been paid off by the rich Muslim theocracies to let in unassimilateable 3rd world bilge.

    I suspect that if this story was about young girls being groomed by paedophiles, rather than psycho headchoppers, they would have received a little more sympathy in this comments section.

      Probably as it would be our own girls being groomed by the aliens that have been allowed to settle and flourish in our northern towns, drugging and raping at will, whilst our authorities exercise horribly misplaced political correctness, turning a blind eye to their vile outrages.

      These are not “our” girls. These are the descendents of a foreign creed, invited here completely against the wishes of the majority of the public, with hard-wired views and values that completely contradict our own and are a complete juxtaposition to our well established way of life.The vast majority of comments here reflect a similar sentiment.

      One’s sympathy for these recruits is probably equal to the sympathy and worry the Muslim “community” would show to a group of White British teenagers going to fight against ISIS.

      Would they be desperately asking for “our boys” to return to face no charges?

      • Fred Collier

These proto jihadists are actively crossing all Europe, smuggling themselves across a border into a war zone and joining a murderous bunch of butchers whose actions they will have seen on the internet and MSM.

    • somewhereinthesouth

      These girls are mostly intelligent and have had access to free schooling health care and much else besides . They and their families have to take some responsibility for their actions. It remains the case that they are also from muslim backgrounds which suggests to that they are willing to be groomed….perhaps as a result of their misplaced sympathies or indeed thier exposure to the muslim religion. In that sense may be they are vulnerable.

      As for paedophiles ,there seems be a preponderance of sex abusers of underage [ and vulnerable] white girls in the Pakistani heritage [ for which read muslim influenced] community. I don’t think you could describe most these Jahadi brides as vulnerable in the same way.

      • Callipygian

        It seems to me that whatever scare-word ‘phobia’ there is is abundantly deserved and has been deliberately courted. Even if they can’t speak the truth, we should.

        Andrew Neil should also consider that it is possible to under-react, as well. If I were a jihadist (!), I’d be wondering about now just what I and my fellow haters and killers would have to do to earn the Wests’s ‘phobia’.

  • Jim91

    Blaming something else, whether its the police, the nasty “Islamophobic” British public or foreign policy, has become the reflexive response by members of the Muslim community to that terrorism problem that’s regularly left “unfairly” on their doorstep. Its actually entirely rational for them to do so as “tolerant” liberal society is always on hand to take the allegations seriously. I bet CAGE were quite surprised by the negative reaction to the suggestion that Emwazi’s promising new career as a head chopping savage is entirely the fault of MI5. Self appointed Muslim “moderates” and Guardian writers have been saying similar things for years. This dad is merely the latest in a long line.

    • Callipygian

      They’re not really blaming something else. They’re simply lying.

  • Mc

    I’d wager that the police have specifically excluded articles and video clips like this from their files as it would mean they’d then have to bring Mr Abase in for questioning about his possible involvement in his daughter’s radicalisation. It would also be interesting to know whether the police have declined to forensically look at Mr Abase’s own computer and mobile. After all, doing so would be very bad for community relations…

    He should now have his asylum cancelled, and be sent to rot with his scumbag daughter. He doesn’t deserve asylum in this country.

    Same should happen to the many other members of his community who support ISIS.

  • John Steadman

    The elephant in the room?

    You will recall Mr Liddle that he explained, he only took his daughter to the marches because there was no-one at home to leave her with. On the basis his wife was with him on the march.

    But you will be pleased to learn that we believe any old claptrap when someone turns up to claim asylum. So they get in and get lots of taxpayers monies in benefits, home, education, health etc instead of returning them from whence they came. In reality those who are really in difficulty in their homelands, are either in prison or dead. The ones that come over here are usually part of the oppressive regime but believe that it is time to leave, so exit and claim to be oppressed, works every time. Time to revue the Asylum and Refugee Act.

    You will note that the Warren St bom ber claimed to be somalian, as he knew if he had said ethiopian, he would not have got in. He repaid our generosity by trying to blow us up and fled wearing a burqa to his brother in Rome (he had claimed asylum there).

    Max Frisch’s play ‘Biedermann and the Fire Raisers’ is worth reading and is quite instructive. It tells of how Herr Biedermann, the decent, unimaginative citizen invites two pyromaniacs into his home and makes them welcome. He even gives them the matches with which they eventually set fire to his home.

    The play by this Swiss playwright appeared after the War, and some thought that Frisch was alluding to Hitler’s rise to power, with disastrous consequences. One could, however, believe that the play has a universal significance and is of particular relevance to the West today.

  • Zed largo

    I really appreciate the common sense and reality this article brings to the madhouse that Britain has become. There is not a racist or anti Muslim sentiment expressed here, but an objective view expressed with a twist of cynicism and humour. Frankly, to see the UK fall into the clutches of the abstract ideology of social manipulators from the PC brigade is not only sad but dangerously alarming. The establishment has turned into a self-harming culture that hates itself, is riddled with guilt and looks for redemption in self-sacrificing behaviour that bows and scrapes to those who take advantage of the British disease of post colonial grief. In particular, the BBC and much of the print media has joined the throngs of sycophants who peddle the sugar and sorcery of liberal lefty pathology. They are simply not in their right minds. Britain is not a well nation. It is deeply fragmented, has no sense of itself and spends its time in trivial distractions in an attempt to avoid looking at the deep problems that are festering below the surface. If it went to a psychoanalyst it would be diagnosed as pathologically repressed, schizoid, existentially lost and suffering from a sever clinical depression.

  • somewhereinthesouth

    It has never ceased to amazed me that our political establishment can’t see the belladonna obvious. Tony Blair ” this is not about religion ” etc. Yet It is apparent that it muslims [from muslim families] who are going to fight [ or marry] ISIS. Of course some nay be poor or unemployed and that might be a factor [ although not so important as to attract other non muslims to go] . Yet apparently the problem lies elsewhere -the internet, our sex fuelled society , consumerism , foreign policy ,the USA., MI5 and the police. And yet isn’t it odd that the the Jihadis all seem to be from muslim backgrounds ? This apparently incorrect observations is common sense to most people and is backed up by the obvious but frequently unstated fact that jews, white or black Christians, Zoroastrians, Hindus , Fascists, Polish immigrants, Buddists, Socialists, Nationalist , Chinese , Afro-Carribean and Atheists and a whole host of other groups don’t seem to be in the vanguard of British citizens wanting to go and “marry” ISIS fighters , fight for ISIS , behead our soldiers or denounce the west at rallies in the UK. They are nearly always muslim or from muslim influenced backgrounds .Funny that ? Its obviously nothing do with religion . Yeah right

    I would cautiously like to venture the hypothetical suggestion…that “islam” is not actually a “religion”.

Books have been written about this sort of stuff, containing useful tips about how to extract water from sand using a binliner, rocks and a bucket and spade – except that Mohammed does not seem to have included this tip in his own guide for the region….

    Something rather along the lines of Bear Grylls and greg-bear or whatever that other guy was called, for helping the survival of you and your male bloke-chums, in desert-regions, where there is _nothing much, if at all_ , for hundreds and hundreds of miles…except the breeding-females and the animals of other family groups and tribes.

  • Simon Morgan

    This is spot on. The problem is, of course, that to the leftards out there Hussen is still the victim and must be compensated millions for the authorities’ lack of due care.

  • Edwin Moore

    Can’t argue against this one for a change. For reinforcement of Liddle;s view see the leap onto the blame-the-cops bandwagon by the family of the Glasgow woman who ran away to join the butchers. The family’s previius responses were to blame the internet (of course) and the woman herself (not a true Muslim) – now the British cops are to blame and she is really a sweetie pie.

  • berosos_bubos

    UKIP haven’t given up all hope for you yet Rod, well done !

  • beenzrgud

    This fellow and his family were never out of the news when his daughter ran off to be a terrorist. We’ve had to tolerate hearing him blame everyman and his dog for the actions of his daughter, and now it turns out it was all his doing.
    The thing I want to know most of all is that now we know the truth why is it also not all over the news. I’m getting sick and tired of the transparent agenda to paint these people as sweet little angels when in fact they are nothing but trouble.

    • Chris

      The answer to your question is because part one of your post nicely fits in with the BBC’s left wing and pro immigrant agenda whereas part two certainly doesn’t.
      Something has seriously gone wrong with this country’s media when they report the handing out of free sausage rolls at a UKIP convention as a more serious crime than the terrorism being planned by Muslims who live amongst us against the innocent and unsuspecting citizens of the UK.
      Hand a sausage roll to a potential voter and expect the police to knock on your door with cuffs at the ready. Plan a terrorist attack or run off to join Islamic State and expect an apology from our chief of police for not being there to stop you.
      This country is truly sick and is in desperate need of medication.

  • Liberanos

    This girl was clearly groomed online by some perverted sadist who convinced her that the koran had to be obeyed.

    • Darnell Jackson

      Either that or her parents poisoned her.

  • Greek Dave

    I love the picture that accompanies this article; it was the one that was widely published in the national press and is calculated to give the impression that daddy’s innocent little daughter had gone missing. The innocent little daughter who sat and played with her teddy between trips to the mosque; not to be confused with the daughter who lay in her bedroom dreaming of being ‘throped’ rotten by a succession of wild-eyed jihadies every minute of the day.

    • Rbeastlondon

      ‘Throped’. Not familiar with the term. What does it mean?

      • Greek Dave

        It’s a transitive verb; to thrope. It is related to the verb ‘to roger’ but involves a lot more grunting, sweating and general abandonment on the part of the throper.

  • Infidelissima

    The wonderful family oriented Muslims who insult us for our children wearing mini skirts and drinking alcohol, while they raise psychotic illiterate beheaders, and those who can not wait to run off to spread their legs to psychotic illiterate beheaders.

  • Blindsideflanker

    Nice one Mr Liddle.

  • Muttley

    The “victim culture” is one of Islam’s main failings. Everything is always someone else’s fault. They blame the West for their fall from grace a few centuries ago and the subsequent failure of their crappy countries to progress. As immigrants, their host society, wherever it may be, is always to blame for their lack of integration and radicalisation. It is exactly this mindset, plus the backward-looking cult of Islam, which prevents the progress they so resent others for enjoying.

    • Arthur Thistlewood

      I wonder whether actually what we are witnessing is the death throes of a moribund Moslem culture not the final episode of its ascent? As any history will show you, Moslem culture has contributed little or nothing to physical science, medicine, the arts, political development or philosophy for eight hundred years. If you think about it like this instead of wondering when the west is going to be conquered by barbarism, the problem changes its nature fundamentally … and so does what you have to do about the problem, of course.

      • Muttley

        Let’s hope you’re right. The modern world would be a great deal better off without it. But like a cornered wild animal, it can cause a lot of damage before it finally succumbs.

      • Albert Zbingswiki

        Would love to think you’re right, but while they still have hordes of barely educated and/ or blood thirsty fanatics in the East, can’t see them going away.

      • Cincinnatus

        We are witnessing the death throes of a culture – our own.
        We can’t even deport a self-admitted Taliban fighter, instead British taxpayers are expected to house him, provide him with an income (while not requiring him to do any sort of work) and even pay his solicitor’s fees.

  • JabbaTheCat

    Nicely played Rod, game set and match to you…

  • AverageGuyInTheStreet

    OK, yadda yadda yadda. There are MILLIONS of these people in our country. What are we going to do about it?

    • Johnny Foreigner

      You and your family, will be assimilated, sooner than you think. Get used to bending your knee and facing east.

  • Hironimous Nostril

    Muslim kids eh. They blow up so fast these days.

    • Infidelissima

      Lol

    • logdon

      A corker!

  • ItwasBlairwotdunnit

    Question. Why haven’t we sent him out to join his daughters?

    • Albert Zbingswiki

      Human Rights.

  • Arthur Thistlewood

    What worries me is that she might just come back. Whose fault would that be?

  • Hironimous Nostril

    What most pisses me off is that they refer to these primitive Muslim morons as British. They most certainly are not.

    • James

      Britain is a brand to disguise mass immigration – being Irish, Scottish or Welsh is ok but being English is racist.

  • David

    One thing I would like to see asked of people like this father is that, if Britain is so immoral and evil, then what the frickin’ hell is he doing living here?

    I lived in Japan for many years. Although a great country in many ways, there were many things I didn’t like about it. But I didn’t go on protests and claim victimhood for my troubles there. Nor did I bring up my children to destroy it…

    The media really needs to ask these people – instead of accepting their premise of suffering and oppression, the awfulness of the security services, police, etc. – is “why are you here if British society is so decadent and oppressive to you and yours?”

  • Johnny Foreigner

    Please, please Mr Liddle stop writing potentially offensive and over the top pieces, dripping with totally outdated common sense, tinged with reality. You know you are jeopardising future bookings back at the BBC. Why can’t you be more like Ms Hardman, rubbing shoulders with the right sort at the BBC and saying the right thing, with the occasional dig at the right? Hasn’t Fraser put your name forward for the next round of Common Purpose re-education courses yet?

  • colchar

    I haven’t worried about her in the least. She made a decision and has to live with the consequences of that decision.

  • Skyeward

    These girls received little enough sympathy in the U.S. and I don’t think the video has been made widely known yet. Doesn’t the UK restrict welfare benefits to immigrants? Here their children can go to school and qualify for Medicaid. Otherwise it’s two consecutive years or five cumulative years of residence to qualify for TANF and other programs. Not a perfect system but it does attract primarly those who come to work.

  • Pramston123

    Great post Rod, shame more won’t tell it how it really is.

  • Jonathan Tedd

    Je suis Rod Liddle

  • Mc

    So I received a response from the BBC explaining why they apparently haven’t to date published any story on any of its platforms about Abase’s attendance at the Islamist rally:

    “Thank you for getting in touch about our coverage of Abase Hussen.

    We are aware of video said to show Mr Hussen at a rally in 2012 and have looked into the matter ourselves.

    We did not consider it merited a report on its own, but it was included in a TV piece due to run on the evening of Friday, March 27th. Unfortunately, because of other news priorities – including the court verdict in the Amanda Knox/Meredith Kercher case – it did not make it to air.

    However, it is something that we do intend to return to in the future.”

    • Guest

      they lie, just like their terrorist pets

      stop paying the licence fee.

      • Mc

        I’m apparently among the very few who has never owned a TV, never watched live broadcasts in my own home and never paid a TV licence. The likes of Netflix and Amazon (yes, those evil tax avoiding corporations) provide me with the quality viewing that the BBC never has and never will produce.

    • AverageGuyInTheStreet

      Once they’ve figured out a way of warping it to fit their narrative, to show the Muslims as victims and the evil white English as in some way at fault, then I’m sure they’ll revisit it. Though even the BBC which is used to performing such acrobatics daily might find that task a little tricky

      • Mc

        It is clear that the BBC’s response is an outright fib. The BBC thought the girls’ story was a top news story for many days. But then when the father angle is revealed, then it’s supposedly no longer of any merit. And of course, unless something truly earth shatteringly negative is revealed about the father, the BBC will never touch on his Islamist interests because the story is now stale – in BBC-think, raising the Islamist angle now would be highly racist.

        • anotherjoeblogs

          Exactly. Reminds me of that 70s football chant when a team had been all raucous when they were up a goal and when the other team got in two, the crowd would point their fingers chanting ‘ It’s all gone quiet over there, it’s all gone quiet over there….’

        • Let’s take away the license fee and then see what happens.

          • Mc

            Unfortunately I can’t see that ever happening. My limited knowledge is that NZ is only place where they abolished BBC equivalent – but then their government seems relatively keen on being sensible.
            My understanding is majority of UK TV owners like the BBC, so won’t lobby govm (so much for wisdom of the majority); the Left will mobilize screeching thousands who’ll cow any such Tory moves; most Tories won’t want to expend political capital on abolishing BBC.

          • I can. The vast majority of people I know think it should be abolished. From a near non-issue 12 months ago it’s now a conventional viewpoint. So long as Labour doesn’t win I expect it to be gone within 5 years (hopefully sooner!).

    • milford

      Muslim crime is rarely reported on. An Asian PC at our local cop shop iarrived at work in a brand new red Ferrari. After his colleagues looked into his activities it turns out he owned two brothels in London where he also sold cocaine. There was a small piece in the daily mail but nothing locally. Imagine if an English PC did that it’d be all over the news.

  • Guardian’s best social worker

    You are Rod, a breath of fresh air. Thank you.

  • GeeBee36_6

    As someone who has been told all my life that I am somewhere to the right of Ghengis Khan, I have to say Rod that you are my kind of Lefty. A particularly fine offering here, for which much thanks. Yet I still wonder why you are the only Lefty who holds these views. Could it be that you know not what you are?

  • Marcussmod

    Just a thought …will Rod’s criticism of the father of these girls be classed as a ‘hate crime’ under Teresa May’s new bill? If so RIP freedom of speech.

  • EmilyEnso

    I have been terribly worried these last few weeks over the plight of 15-year-old Amira Abase.

    Absolutely.
    Worried sick that this dispicable daughter of an even more dispicable and dangerous family will get herself pregnant and come back to Britain in that condition.
    To receive her free house.
    Tens of thousands in benefits over the years and rear the child to be an enemy of the state providing the largesse.
    She should not be allowed back under any circumstances.
    However compassion should prevail.
    I suggest the whole vipers nest be stripped of citizenship and deported to join her.
    We cannot allow this sort of active treason of our state, democracy and values to continue unchecked.
    People’s live are at stake.

  • logdon

    Every now and then an article comes along which shines like a beacon on the ‘narrative’.

    This lefty construct is basically cultural Marxism tweaked to suit a supine public and everywhere you look its there.

    Whether a bank poster deliberately ‘inclusive’ but nowhere near a demographic truth right up to the appalling condescension and excuse making which resulted in Rotherham and the rest.

    Rod has really excelled himself here and this article needs to be pinned to the walls of every right minded journalist who is interested in the truth.

    Of course I realise that the ‘truth’ to our broadcasters, el-Beeb in particular is what they say it is and by manipulation is sanitised into an Orwellian mish-mash of newspeak and then regurgitated onto an audience so pussy whipped by the onslaught that it either slthers by or is accepted as a badge of eternal tolerance.

    There’s nothing fake here, just clear observation on the level of Islamic manipulation going on, seemingly ignored or even condoned by those in who we put our trust in.

    Obviously to Cameron, willing to prostitute our very birthrights for a handful of votes, all of this is neither here nor there as he gambols allong with seemingly not a care in the world.

  • logdon

    Didn’t this man attend a select commitee on the disappearance of his daughter?

    I seem to remember him blaming the police and basically lying about his background.
    Do perjury rules apply?

    • Verk

      No. Muzz are allowed to lie to kaffir. Muzz cannot be held accountable for any crimes or felonies because if they did do something wrong, it was the Jooz that made them do it.

  • Gilbert White

    Insane generosity indeed! The labour machine is looking for money to continue this generosity. What if the IS. female islamists came back to the UK. and carried out what the BBC calls ‘targeted decapitations of say for instance , six female Labour Backbenchers, what would the traumatised voting UK. public think of this especially in the light of Lee Rigby and his deplorable murder?

    • Albert Zbingswiki

      We’d think “*shrug* Labour let them in in the first place, it’s going to happen to all of us within about 10 years as the Kaliphate establishes itself, you got what was coming to you”.

  • Albert Zbingswiki

    I am, to be fair, genuinely scared about the rise of this accursed religion in the UK. Does anyone have the prospect of a bright light at the end of the tunnel to offer me, or are we (as I suspect) doomed?
    I’ve had people say “Nah, it’s fine, they’ll never take over”, but as I see it, the UK is a body. Birmingham, Leicester, Luton, Tower Hamlets, Rotherham, Bradford, etc are tumours. Tumours grow, and they spread, and eventually they take over and kill you.

    • Cincinnatus

      Will take bloodshed on par with the Civil War to rid Britain of this accursed religion. The alternative is to submit.

    • Political correctness has silenced criticism of many undesirable facts of life for at least 20 years. I think we’ve come very far in the past 15 months. I expect quite dramatic changes to occur in the next 2 years. You have to remember the fate of the BNP’s Nick Griffin – he may not be most people’s cup of tea but he was arrested and ruined for telling the truth about the rape gangs / grooming gangs across the country. Now hundreds of the miscreants in those gangs have been arrested. So, yes, this political movement can be stopped dead in its tracks. The alternative – if the political class won’t resolve the issue – will be violent civil war. Keep pointing out what’s going on to people whenever the opportunity arises, and be aware that just as the Nazis had their sympathisers so the extremists have their sympathisers in positions of power. The revolution goes on. It will be unstoppable.

      • Albert Zbingswiki

        Please non-specific-deity (but not the Peaceful one) let it occur, and let us be unstoppable.

      That is just what the Koran recommends and ISIS promotes and the silent majority will acquiesce in unless we figure out a way to stop creep, creep, creep of Islam in Britain.

    Good Journalism. The walking stick before Parliament worried me. Is the chap poorly? Does he receive Disability Living Allowance? [If so} Ought the ability to march and rant suggest this should be withdrawn thus helping England out of recession. Is giving false evidence to Parliament an actionable offence?

  • Joseph Hooker

    Great article Mr Liddle, well summed up. The incoming administration needs to get stuck into people who live off the state and have time to dream up this anti British I have a chip on my shoulder nonsense.
