Some Advice for the Muslim Sgt. Schultzs of Rotherham

Web­ster: Not a Nazi? My mis­take you fat, fuck­ing prick! How about a human being? Are you one of those or are you gonna tell me that you never smelled the fuck­ing stench?

Band of Broth­ers Why We Fight 2001

A few days ago I posted some ques­tions on Rother­ham that the media has avoided ask­ing, those ques­tions are summed up neatly in this tweet.

The responses to that tweet from Mus­lims were enlight­en­ing and but there was one in par­tic­u­lar that I found amusing

As a per­son of Sicil­ian ances­try let me say, as a mat­ter of fact to some extent they do.

The Mus­lims of Rother­ham are in basi­cally the same posi­tion as the Sicil­ians in a NY or Chicago circa 19201950 or the Irish in south Boston dur­ing the height of the Bul­ger years.

To peo­ple out­side of the neigh­bor­hoods, they were all the same, a bunch of crooks involved in the rack­ets. The peo­ple of those areas resented that they were tarred with the same brush as a bunch of gang­sters who they had noth­ing to do with when they just wanted to get on with their lives.

But while the rack­ets didn’t involve them they knew who the gang­sters were, and the kind of things they did. They knew where they lived and the busi­nesses they owned, they knew the places to avoid and the peo­ple not to mess with and warned their kids against them.

They even heard the rumors that were whis­pered when a shop was robbed or busted up, when some­thing hap­pened to a girl or when some­one went miss­ing and turned up dead some­where but only talked of them in passing.

But once in a while some­thing would hap­pen right out in the street where you couldn’t help but see it and couldn’t pre­tend it was any­thing more than talk but when that did hap­pen and the police came by, nobody saw any­thing, nobody said nothing.

They gave them­selves many excuses to jus­tify their silence: sol­i­dar­ity with their own kind, the police were cor­rupt out­siders who were against them, feel­ing sorry for the guy’s poor wife, kids or mother that they knew and that a rat was the low­est form of life there was.

They told them­selves all those things because they didn’t have the courage to admit, even to them­selves, the real rea­sons for their silence: The fear of the judge­ment of their neigh­bors and the retal­i­a­tion of the thugs once the police were gone.

So they wrapped their cow­ardice into nobil­ity and things didn’t change.

and that brings us to this piece in the Daily Mail:

Pak­istani com­mu­nity lead­ers in Rother­ham were com­plicit in hush­ing up the shock­ing ‘eth­nic’ dimen­sions of the sex­ual exploita­tion rather than speak­ing out, it was claimed yesterday.

Parveen Qureshi, direc­tor of the United Mul­ti­cul­tural Cen­tre in Rother­ham, revealed the shock­ing issue was widely dis­cussed between lead­ers who were pri­vately ‘try­ing to resolve the problem’.

She refused to name those who kept quiet, but was cer­tain the prob­lem of Asian men abus­ing white girls was known ‘for a long time’.

It takes courage to speak up to tell the truth and break that code of silence, it takes guts to free your neigh­bor­hoods of that kind of thing. The Mus­lim com­mu­nity has two choices. They can look at this prob­lem and tackle it head on, or they can deny, dis­sem­ble or deflect say­ing the focus should be on the victims.

The deci­sion they make will deter­mine how their com­mu­nity and their sons are per­ceived by the British pub­lic for gen­er­a­tions, make the wrong choice and the com­mu­nity will end up with the cred­i­bil­ity of Ger­man civil­ians in 1946 insist­ing to British sol­diers sta­tioned there they had no idea the death camps existed

May you have joy in the choice you make.

Update: Related via HotAir Head­lines: Where are the marches against The Islamic State?:

Sadly, main­stream Mus­lims have no choice but to come to terms with the fact that groups of peo­ple are car-​bombing, shoot­ing, starv­ing, kid­nap­ping and behead­ing peo­ple in the name of Islam — not to men­tion blow­ing up churches and mosques. Where is the anger? Is it pos­si­ble that the marches in sup­port of Pales­tini­ans are well-​attended because Mus­lims hate Israel more than we hate crim­i­nal gangs who have hijacked the nar­ra­tive of our religion?

The deci­sion before the com­mu­nity is this: Either we reject the Islamic State and groups like it in the clear­est pos­si­ble terms, or we allow them to become the face of Mus­lims. When we say “It’s not Islam,” we are dis­miss­ing the crim­i­nals as some­one else’s prob­lem. The truth is, nobody else is going to deal with them. It might seem eas­ier to evade this respon­si­bil­ity, but the price of doing so will be heavy. Because, to the rest of the world, that hor­rific pic­ture is what Mus­lims have become. If we don’t do some­thing now, that image will be the world’s per­cep­tion of us for years to come.

Of course it could be that her fel­low mus­lims, despite pro-​forma state­ments actu­ally sup­port those guys. I won­der if Yas­mine Bahrani con­sid­ered the possibility?

Band of Brothers Why We Fight 2001

 

A few days ago I posted some questions on Rotherham that the media has avoided asking, those questions are summed up neatly in this tweet.

The responses to that tweet from Muslims were enlightening and but there was one in particular that I found amusing

As a  person of Sicilian ancestry let me say, as a matter of fact to some extent they do.

The Muslims of Rotherham are in basically the same position as the Sicilians in a NY or Chicago circa 1920-1950 or the Irish in south Boston during the height of the Bulger years.

To people outside of the neighborhoods, they were all the same, a bunch of crooks involved in the rackets. The people of those areas resented that they were tarred with the same brush as a bunch of gangsters who they had nothing to do with when they just wanted to get on with their lives.

But while the rackets didn’t involve them they knew who the gangsters were, and the kind of things they did.  They knew where they lived and the businesses they owned, they knew the places to avoid and the people not to mess with and warned their kids against them.

They even heard the rumors that were whispered when a shop was robbed or busted up, when something happened to a girl or when someone went missing and turned up dead somewhere but only talked of them in passing.

But once in a while something would happen right out in the street where you couldn’t help but see it and couldn’t pretend it was anything more than talk but when that did happen and the police came by, nobody saw anything, nobody said nothing.

They gave themselves many excuses to justify their silence: solidarity with their own kind, the police were corrupt outsiders who were against them, feeling sorry for the guy’s poor wife, kids or mother that they knew and that a rat was the lowest form of life there was.

They told themselves all those things because they didn’t have the courage to admit, even to themselves, the real reasons for their silence: The fear of the judgement of their neighbors and the retaliation of the thugs once the police were gone.

So they wrapped their cowardice into nobility and things didn’t change.

and that brings us to this piece in the Daily Mail:

Pakistani community leaders in Rotherham were complicit in hushing up the shocking ‘ethnic’ dimensions of the sexual exploitation rather than speaking out, it was claimed yesterday.

Parveen Qureshi, director of the United Multicultural Centre in Rotherham, revealed the shocking issue was widely discussed between leaders who were privately ‘trying to resolve the problem’.

She refused to name those who kept quiet, but was certain the problem of Asian men abusing white girls was known ‘for a long time’.

It takes courage to speak up to tell the truth and break that code of silence, it takes guts to free your neighborhoods of that kind of thing. The Muslim community has two choices. They can look at this problem and tackle it head on, or they can deny, dissemble or deflect saying the focus should be on the victims.

The decision they make will determine how their community and their sons are perceived by the British public for generations, make the wrong choice and the community will end up with the credibility of German civilians in 1946 insisting to British soldiers stationed there they had no idea the death camps existed

May you have joy in the choice you make.

Update: Related via HotAir Headlines: Where are the marches against The Islamic State?:

Sadly, mainstream Muslims have no choice but to come to terms with the fact that groups of people are car-bombing, shooting, starving, kidnapping and beheading people in the name of Islam — not to mention blowing up churches and mosques. Where is the anger? Is it possible that the marches in support of Palestinians are well-attended because Muslims hate Israel more than we hate criminal gangs who have hijacked the narrative of our religion?

The decision before the community is this: Either we reject the Islamic State and groups like it in the clearest possible terms, or we allow them to become the face of Muslims. When we say “It’s not Islam,” we are dismissing the criminals as someone else’s problem. The truth is, nobody else is going to deal with them. It might seem easier to evade this responsibility, but the price of doing so will be heavy. Because, to the rest of the world, that horrific picture is what Muslims have become. If we don’t do something now, that image will be the world’s perception of us for years to come.

Of course it could be that her fellow muslims, despite pro-forma statements actually support those guys. I wonder if Yasmine Bahrani considered the possibility?
