This is no surprise. The Home Office some time ago banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it clear that it is more authoritarian and unwilling to uphold the freedom of speech than ever – at least when it comes to criticism of Islam, Muslim rape gangs, and mass Muslim migration.
The bannings of Sellner, Pettibone, Southern, and Bachmann were just part of a long pattern. Pamela Geller and I were banned in 2013, apparently for life, also for the crime of telling the truth about Islam and jihad. Just days after Geller and I were banned, the British government admitted Saudi Sheikh Mohammed al-Arefe. Al-Arefe has said: “Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight.”
And Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.
The UK has granted asylum to Yasser Al-Sirri, a convicted jihad terrorist who advocated violent jihad and the killing of Jews. The UK Home Office also admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”
Theresa May’s relentlessly appeasement-minded government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country. The asylum application of a Christian family facing a death fatwa in Pakistan was three times rejected. But an ISIS bride was let back in and given a taxpayer-funded house, despite the fact that she has an ISIS flag on her Twitter account. No terror charges for her, of course.
Meanwhile, Manchester jihad mass murderer Salman Abedi trained with a jihad group in Libya, and traveled in and out of UK with no problem.
The British government, in its abject pursuit of support from its rapidly growing Muslim community, has long ago left behind any commitment to basic human decency.
An update on this story. “Victim of Rochdale grooming gang demands Priti Patel kick her abusers out of the country as ringleader, 51, is pictured shopping for food and fizzy drinks in the town,” by James Tozer and Jack Wright, Daily Mail, April 6, 2021:
A victim of the Rochdale grooming gang last night urged Priti Patel to kick her abusers out of Britain as the ringleader was pictured stocking up on fizzy drinks in the town where he abused children nine years ago.
Girl A, the main victim of the grooming gang, said it was a disgrace the Government had failed to act and called for an explanation from the Home Secretary.
She spoke out after Abdul Rauf, 51, was pictured buying food and drinks in Rochdale, where he and other gang members groomed and sexually abused young girls.
When the married father-of-five was released on licence in 2014 he was told he faced deportation to Pakistan because he holds a dual-nationality passport.
Scandalously, however, Rauf remains free to move around Rochdale – one of three former taxi drivers still fighting efforts to throw them out of the country.
Already one victim has revealed how she had ‘never been so scared in all my life’ after bumping into her attacker in the town.
Campaigners warn the continuing failure to deport them would continue to blight the lives of the girls, now in their twenties and thirties.
Girl A, now 28 and played by Molly Windsor in the BBC drama Three Girls, told the Sun: ‘We were told they would be kicked out of the country.
‘Knowing that had been done would have been a huge help for all of us in trying to rebuild our lives. But instead we’re still haunted by the paedophiles who raped and trafficked us. Every day we run the risk of bumping into them.’
Last night campaigners and politicians called for Ms Patel to act, with Tory MP Andrew Bridgen charging ‘there can be few individuals more deserving of deportation’ than father-of-five Rauf….
Rauf was part of a nine-strong grooming gang convicted for targeting 47 girls as young as 13 between 2005 and 2008.
They plied the girls with drugs and alcohol and passed them around for sex. The youngsters were assaulted and raped by as many as five men, one after the other, often multiple times.
Rauf wept in the dock, claiming one of his victims ‘looked maybe 30’ and saying he made a mistake. He was jailed for six years for trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child….
A Home Office spokesman said: ‘The cases of the foreign national offenders involved in these crimes have recently been reviewed at the request of the Home Secretary.’
