Islam’s Sex Slaves in Britain

This article by Michael Copeland was first published at LibertyGB in July 2013. Since then there has been news coverage of dozens of Yazidi sex slaves in Iraq, of 276 Christian Nigerian girls abducted by night from boarding school to be sex slaves for Boko Haram, and a stream of further scandals in the UK of entrapment of underage English girls for marketing in muslim sex-slave networks.

Islam’s Sex Slaves in Britain

by Michael Copeland

The media term ‘Asian grooming’ is libellous, misleading, and inaccurate. It gratuitously slanders the Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Indian Hindu, Indian Sikh, Thai Buddhist, and many other Asian peoples. The term ‘grooming’ is misleading: to many it concerns men’s hairdressing. The principal complaint, though, is that it is inaccurate. The phenomenon is not Asian but Muslim. It is Islamic sex-slave-taking.

Islam has never abolished slavery: rules of Sharia law govern it. Islam authorises the taking of slaves: the Koran calls them “what your right hand possesses” (4:24). No Islamic state has signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which outlaws slavery. Instead, they have their own Cairo Declaration of Human Rights, which subordinates every provision to Sharia Law. Slavery, even though nominally made illegal by man-made statute, is in use today in several Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia, Mali, Sudan and even Egypt, because Sharia overrides “man-made” law. A Christian charity works in Africa buying slaves’ freedom. This liberates some, but it does not, in fact, discourage the kidnapping, as it provides a ready sale.

Sex slaves are a significant feature of slavery. “When I want a sex slave”, says Egyptian Salafi sheikh Huwayni, “I go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.” (Translating Jihad, 11 June 2011) Film footage from the 1960s of Arab Muslims purchasing African slaves can be seen on the Internet. The Koran authorises sex slaves: “lawful unto you are … what your right hand possesses.” (4:24) The text does say “what”, not “whom”: slaves and women are chattels, like domestic animals. Sharia law is seventh-century. Unchanged, it is held to be unchangeable. There has never been a reformation.

In Islamic teaching all non-Muslim countries are Dar al Harb, the ‘Realm of War’: “Britain has always been Dar al Harb,” Anjem Choudary assured the BBC. “Allah is an enemy to unbelievers,” says Koran 2:98, which means that Muslims must be, too. In any such realm of war the soldiers of Allah, the jihadis, are entitled to take slaves from the non-Muslim enemy, the kuffar: Sheikh Saad al-Buraik exhorted his listeners:

Their women are yours to take, legitimately. God made them yours. Why don’t you enslave their women?

Sheikh Huwayni confirms the law (Translating Jihad, 11 June 2011):

Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars — there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

In 2011 the female Kuwaiti activist and politician Salwa al-Mutairi publicly advocated the taking of sex slaves in conflict zones like Chechnya. She asked a mufti in Mecca whether this would be unlawful: “Absolutely not. Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam,” was his reply (Jihad Watch 8 July 2013). In Colorado in 2006 a Saudi national was found guilty of keeping a woman as a slave housekeeper for four years while repeatedly raping her. He argued that the United States was attacking Islamic customs such as not paying your slave and controlling her life: “We are Muslim”, he complained, “We are different. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors.”

In the old-fashioned, timeless model of boy-meets-girl the young man encourages the relationship by acts of kindness. If he wins his girl he will be the happy bridegroom and she the bride. It is in this sense that the word ‘grooming’ is used to describe cultivating a relationship. What the inadequate and tainted media refer to as ‘Asian grooming’ is nothing of the sort: it is bogus courting, ensnaring the victim, as does a Venus Fly Trap, in a deceit. The gifts, the flattery, the admiration, the fast cars, are all the preliminary part: the objective is the Islamic taking of property.

Once taken, the victim is trapped: the slave-takers drop the ‘admirer’ mask, threaten and intimidate her, and start marketing their goods. Young age is a commercial advantage: Sharia law does not have an age of consent; the younger the better, that is, the more lucrative. One of the girls in the Oxford case, aged 12, was branded ‘M’ with hot metal to show that she was property of her attacker, Mohammed. Some are sold on to new owners; some are rented out, generating a good income. White girls have always commanded a higher price than brown-skinned girls. Though they are high-value ‘merchandise’ for leasing out, their non-Muslim status as kuffar (cognate with ‘dirt’) means they are ‘unclean’. Kuffar are on a par with faeces, urine, pig and dog, according to Ayatollah Sistani. In several of Britain’s ever-growing number of sex slave cases the girls have testified to being “treated like dirt”. That is all they are — low-class dirt — cash cows to be rented out at a good price to middle-aged married men, to be used, and then discarded. Beaten and threatened, they are intimidated into silence.

Some, like Charlene Downes, 14, ‘disappear’, presumably murdered. Sharia authorises slave-killing. It is quite obvious that Sharia law, as the European Court of Human Rights declared in 2003, is “incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy”.

The media, alas, love labels, including knowingly inaccurate ones, and are very slow to revise them. When an aeroplane came down in Scotland one night with hundreds of dead the event swiftly became labelled the Lockerbie Air Disaster. Within twenty-four hours it became known that there had been a bomb, making it a Mass Murder Atrocity. Nevertheless the media persisted in using the misleading and inaccurate ‘Lockerbie Air Disaster’ (as on the village memorial, see Internet) for TWO YEARS before changing to the accurate ‘Lockerbie Bombing’. Such is their track record.

The media’s persistence with their inaccurate ‘Asian’ label, and their failure to identify slave-taking have enabled this practice to continue unrecognised. The failures by the authorities, police, social workers and so on are a national scandal. The least we can all do for its victims is to give it its proper description, and pursue it for the double crime it is.

      • Precisely, Dymphna. And I would add, ‘…nothing left to lose but their children’s chains.’

    • Nostra, Sooner than you can possibly imagine, for now the stakes are known, and the politicians in the west are like the proverbial Dutch boy trying to stop the dike leaks with fingers and toes, soon, human nature will do what it always does when a foreign invader comes to his fair lands. The fun and games are about to begin so let it rain.

  1. ” Film footage from the 1960s of Arab Muslims purchasing African slaves can be _seen on the Internet_.”

    Following that link leads you to a message saying, “This site has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.”

    • Apologies. The article was written in those far-off days when the internet had not been intimidated.

    • The film was black and white footage from the 1960s. It showed young African girls in a house. Motor cars arrive bearing Arab men in Arab costume. The voiceover explains that these are buyers, while the girls are only told that they will be going to where a job awaits them.
      It may have originally been a documentary for television.

      For video of a charity today buying slaves in Africa in order to rescue them see:

  2. To think that I was permabanned from Twitter for posting an anti-burka meme that did not even name a religion.

    • Matt, I suspect that you get banned just for being Matt. Or are you in a ‘getting banned’ competition with Wirecutter of ‘Knucklegraggin my life away’ over in Tennessee? 😱😱

      Rgds, T.

  3. To generalize, my thinking is that the most egregious part of the Muslim grooming atrocities is the obvious and flagrant compliance of the police and government authorities. If only the police had pursued the Muslim slavers with a tenth of the enthusiasm and effort they put into arresting and charging Tommy Robinson for posting publicly-available information about the Muslim groomers being charged.

    So, the root question is, how can a citizen ensure the protection he depends on from the authorities to whom he has pledged loyalty and obedience to the law?

    It seems to me that the biggest factor popping out is local autonomy, and relative homogeneity of the polity, that is, the electorate involved in politics. The larger the physical territory of a government, the more likely it is that local interests will be suborned to to a remote legislative and executive process. In other words, corruption and ideology will be able to impose themselves on even a discrete and intelligent electorate in a particular area.

    By homogeneous polity, I mean that for an area of a particular ethnic group, people of other ethnicity or race will not necessarily be physically excluded, but will be bared from political activity: voting, campaign contributions for example. They will, of course, be under equal protection of the law concerning their personal security and affairs.

    This is like the compartmentalization of a submarine. Any area that is flooded is sealed off: the people in the flooded areas are toast, but at least everyone else survives.

    The biggest problem with the local autonomy theory I propose is that small, autonomous regions are susceptible to large, invading armies representing large empires. Europe was saved from Muslim conquest several times by regional armies, often just in the nick of time. The crusader kingdoms were an attempt to get back Christian lands. One of the reasons the crusader kingdoms succumbed was the very regionalism I’m proposing. They didn’t act in concert, instead pursuing short-sighted objectives.

  4. Sadly the photo of those newspapers betrays the true scale of the cover-up.

    I published the second edition of Easy Meat in 2016 as a marker for the way the state has advanced the cover-up from 2015 onwards. I predicted that what they were going to do was NOT report on the trials as they were underway or when they concluded.

    This prediction has now been borne out with regard to 41 out of the last 47 grooming gang trials. See the bold entries in the left-hand column here:
    The bold entries are the trials which received virtually no reporting at all. Even some of the few trials which received some reporting as the trial was underway were not reported like the headlines in the photo that accompanies this article. The judiciary and the media work hand-in-glove to keep the public ignorant of the scale of this atrocity.

    Moreover, few people realise that within 5 to 7 years of a trial ending in England, the record of the evidence from the trial is deleted. When I pointed this out to solicitors and barristers in the UK, even they did not believe me that it was so easy to keep this covered up. To obtain the transcripts of those 41 unreported trials would cost in the region of £1,000,000.

    Most of the history of what these gangs have done to their hundreds of thousands of victims is evidence that will be wiped from history. The clock is ticking and no-one cares enough to prevent this trial evidence from being destroyed. I was approached by a multi-millionaire donor to UK political parties who said “I can easily raise £1,000,000 for any worthwhile project on the grooming gangs”. When I said that the most vital thing of all was to preserve the evidence from these historic trials, he suddenly lost interest.
