Muslims are forbidden from taking out loans on which they would be charged interest, but under the new arrangements they would instead pay "charitable contributions" which would allow more youngsters to go to university.

"Moderate" Muslims condone sex slavery on Maajid's LBC show. Maajid hopes to gain Islamic reform from within the Muslim communities, even though members of those communities condone sex slavery. Do you think the two Muslim men you heard speak here would say no if they were offered a child sex slave?

Summary: 

Girls as young as four are being “forced to wear the hijab” as part of approved school uniform in state-funded Islamic schools, campaigners have told ministers. According to research by the National Secular Society, the hijab appears to be compulsory in eight state-funded Islamic schools in England, including three primary schools. A further 51 private Islamic schools of the 176 surveyed by the society also require the headscarf to be worn by female pupils. Eighteen schools said wearing the head covering was optional.

Summary: 

The narrative we are expected to buy into is that terrorism is nothing to do with Islam and, further, that it is a state of mind imposed upon young and ‘vulnerable’ Muslim men and women by an outside agency — a foreign agency and an agency which, again, has nothing to do with Islam. This is the process of ‘radicalisation’ we keep hearing about and I have never bought into it, having a certain respect for the concept of free will. And, I would contend, a rather less generous view of Islam’s worldwide beneficence and pacific nature than the one we are all enjoined to take.

And yet here we have a young man taken into the kindly, if somewhat wrinkled, bosom of an English couple who, it may emerge, still ended up trying to terrorise people in the name of his weary God. If the Joneses had been a Muslim family, then the press and the police would be demanding to know what they knew of this process of radicalisation, and what they had done to counter it. But there is nothing to be done. The religion itself sets its people apart from the rest and, in all too many cases, this apartness leads to a hatred. Radicalisation is nothing to do with it.

Summary: 

The brave young woman at the centre of the Halifax grooming gang scandal has waived her right to lifelong anonymity to reveal for the first time the full scale of the nightmare she endured at the hands of her sick abusers. In a wide-ranging, three-part interview with Shy Society, fearless Georgia speaks out about the horrific two-year ordeal she suffered at the hands of up to 100 mainly Muslim men and breaks her silence about the pattern emerging in all four corners of Britain, as well as condemning the reaction from the political establishment.

....

Georgia admits that as a working-class child with no parental support network she almost felt worthless during the abuse, but shockingly says the initial attitude from the investigating police force allowed the abuse to continue for even longer.

“I tried to go to the police once,” she adds. “Well this missing person’s officer took me there but they made out it was a lifestyle choice I was doing so it put me off for a few more months. It really upset me – they (perpetrators) were the ones that had got me addicted, I was only 12 and I didn’t really know what I was doing. I didn’t even really know what cannabis was when they were giving it me.
