A chap I knew went to France
and met a voluptuous lady by chance.
A pretentious fellow
though his mood was quite mellow
Sadly, She couldn’t get him to dance.
You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic. Robert A Heinlein
With Islamophobic attacks on the increase in England, (yes Islamophobia is racism) and yes racism is not dead. It is disappointing to see the media add to the hateful narrative of Pakistanis and or muslims being a unique and major problem, no mention of the widespread condemnation of this and the efforts against it by muslims – not that it should be needed . Talking with people experienced with this , their is a collective responsibility on society, media, social services , parents , police and religious bodies to safeguard children and promote this ideal

Nothing scorches the mind more than the news of innocent children being subject to abuse, be it psychological, physical or sexual. It is a scarring which remains with the child for the rest of his or her life, impacting their ability to form relationships and inhibiting development of their mental faculties.
It is without doubt emblematic of human depravity of the extreme kind.
The right-wing, anti-Muslim racists however are doing their utmost to attach the horror that is the case of Rotherham to race (Pakistani) and religion (Islam). In the comments section of a Spectator article on the topic, commenters called for Islam to be proscribed, mosques to be bulldozed and British Isles to be cleansed, Spanish inquisition-style.

Using a prototype Truth Rectification Processor, the words of Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev have been filtered through a complex algorithm that strips away lies.
This experiment, led by @alexnunns (https://twitter.com/alexnunns), is inspired by earlier, remarkable research carried out by gabbriana2008, which used alternative “mind-reading technology”. Those results can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMd_js_oQAk. It is not known whether this technology is still operational, or if it has been destroyed by Mossad.
Some of the raw data that was fed into the Truth Rectification Processor can be viewed here: http://www.thenation.com/article/180783/five-israeli-talking-points-gaza-debunked
And some of its design principles were based on this: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/israelgaza-conflict-the-secret-report-that-helps-israelis-to-hide-facts-9630765.html

I feel that A pro active attitude with regards to adding value to your society, from a basis of your faith, and collaborating with fair minded people is a good strategy against this type of mistreatment.
Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they are not out to get you…

There is no doubt that there have been failures, from governance issues to power-play, the problems entail a wide diaspora of issues in schools. The key point is this however: these problems are most certainly not peculiar to one faith, demographic or group. My articles in exposing various details of the attacks on the schools have sought to highlight the discriminatory targeting of the Muslim minority – they have never sought to exonerate any mistakes which have been made, unless there are good reasons in doing so, such as the plethora of lies, twists and distortions which have been peddled in the media.
This neatly brings us to my favourite reporter. The sock-puppeting “journalist” that is the hype-whore Andrew Gilligan did another piece mainly targeting the Jewish community.
Is Gilligan trying to restore some balance in his reporting by targeting the Jewish community? No Gilligan. One tokenistic piece is nothing…

My Apprehension and nervous excitement increased with every step, it was sunset and I still had maybe a ten minute walk to my target.
The minaret was a beacon as I Homed in on my destination.
How do I get in? I enter through a wide and warmly lit passageway of some cold stone, I approach a courtyard that has a large stone fountain as a centre piece, prayer mats cover the courtyard, I see that one exit leads to some gardens that are walled and serene , and another leads to a more conventional prayer space.
Food has already been served my companion is agitated.
I head towards the bathroom, I get redirected once then twice. Someone offers us snacks,
We hustle to sit down, introductions are made , a basin of food is made available and we have attracted a gathering of new acquaintances. I share stories with with a gardener a few years older than me.
