Islamic Schools of Child Sexual Abuse

Pages: 1 2

Recently released American diplomatic cables have revealed Saudi Arabian and United Arab Emirate donors to be spending $100 million a year to fund a Pakistani network of jihadist religious schools. While these Islamic schools — known as madrassas — are better known as places to recruit and train young boys and girls as terrorist fighters and suicide bombers, they have other equally disturbing uses.

Madrassas have been cited as major links to terrorist organizations, providing militant groups juvenile recruits, organizational bases, transit points and military training. While wealthy Arab donors have long been suspected of funding them, the diplomatic documents also pointed to direct active support by both the Saudi Arabian and UAE governments.

Most of the funds in question were sent to madrassas in Pakistan’s Punjab province. Despite a reputation as the most moderate of Pakistani provinces, reports from 2008 have claimed anywhere from 5,000 to 9,000 Punjab children to be fighting in Afghanistan.

In either case, the Pakistanis, according to the cables, reportedly turned a fearful blind eye to the issue, stating “The provincial and federal governments, while fully aware of the problem, appear to fear direct confrontation with these extremist groups.”

According to the cable the juveniles — as young as age 8 — were being recruited from mostly large, poverty stricken families. As such, each child’s family would receive a $6500 compensation as well as “God’s favor,” if the child happened to be martyred along the way.

Once enrolled in the madrassa, children would then be isolated from direct contact with the outside world and “taught sectarian extremism and hatred for non-Muslims.” After several months of indoctrination, they would then be sent to more established training camps before going on to wage jihad, either as combat insurgents or as suicide bombers.

So successful are madrassas as jihad producers that it has been reported that all the leaders and cadres of the Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), and Lashkar-e-Tayyaba (LeT); 90 percent of the Taliban’s leaders and cadres; and 70 percent of the leaders and cadres of the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HUM) and the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HUJI) are madrassa alumni.

As centers of anti-Western hate, madrassas litter the entire Muslim world, but the ones in Pakistan are the most extensive and well organized. While Pakistan’s government accounts for 11,221 registered madrassas, the estimates of unregistered madrassas range from 20,000 to 45,000 with a student population between 1.1 and to 1.9 million.

Moreover, Pakistan’s Islamic jihadist schools are home to the largest contingent of foreign nationals, hailing from such places as Afghanistan, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Uzbekistan, Chechnya, Yemen, Somalia, Bangladesh, Tanzania, Australia, Western Europe and North America.

    I beg your pardon! There MUST be a mistake in the sentence: ". . . each child’s family would receive a $6500 compensation as well as 'God’s favor,' if the child happened to be martyred along the way."
    I think that God had nothing to do with the stupidity of the fools that believe in Allah. Although I have not seen the original texts, I assume that they were not mentioning God, but that they wrote Allah in stead. It is so wrong to confuse 'God' with 'Allah'! Because God is the father of Jesus, and Allah is the pig that has ordered the jews to be slaughtered.

      No, God is the father of all mankind, not of one male named Jesus. We are all children of God, men and women. God is not a male who impregnates human females, as the ancient Hellenes believed. God is something we cannot conceive of- a force beyond our puny minds to imagine. But as our Creator, he is both father and mother. Look up the word "Shechins" and you will understand the feminine aspect of the Almighty, the sheltering Presence of God which covers all of us.

      If you read the Qur'an, it is fairly obvious that Allah is merely a creation of Mohammed.

    Pharaoh Hussein attended a very strict madrassa in the country where he grew up, Indonesia. It clearly has worked on him, from bowing to the Saudi King "keeper of the holy city of Mecca" to screwing over the Jews, he is cearly going by the book (the Qor'an).

    And like every other social pathology that afflicts the Islamic world, it is kept hidden…swept under the rug…un-dealt with…out of public view. Contrast this state of affairs with the social pathologies that afflict the West…and our acknowledgement and exposition of them as we work on solutions…and the end result is that in the collective Muslim mind, the WEST is a cultural cesspool, while Islam is pure and pristine.

    Essentially, this is the problem with ALL Utopian creeds: Acknowledging their short-comings is tantamount to repudiation, so instead, an entire society lives a collective lie. Such is Islam.

    In Islam,
    if the boys are under aged 13 they are not considered men,
    therefore sex with young boys doesn't count
    as homosexuality.
    I guess the Saudi's like the idea of Madrasses in Pakistan better than Madrasses in Saudi Arabia.
    The Saudi's consider the Pakistani's to be "inferior" because they have dark skin.
    There's a suprise.
    Our friends the Saudi's.
    The King of Saudi Arabia probably gave Obama his left hand to kiss.

      Thanks, it is unusual to see the truth about islamic pedophilia. They prefer boys to girls. Been there, seen it. BHO just wants his turn at those bottoms.

    • justsaying

      Not to defend the Islamic fanatics, but didn't the Roman Catholic Church just publish a report that said, what the priests of that religion do to children, could not be defined as pedophilia, if the victims are above 12 years old. These issues are not about religions but about diabolic individuals, just saying.

  • sharpsrifle

    Islam is a cancer deserving radiation treatment.

  • Mustaffa Moohammed

    Such idiots. Anyone that has lived in a muzlim country KNOWS that sex with pre-puberty boys is celebrated. They prefer boys to girls and young women. The general I worked with had a cadre of boys at his beck and call. The boys would beg me to kill him or take them to America when I left.
    America will pay dearly for not allowing Christians from all over the world to come here. islam is a political system outlawed by the constitution so keep out the trash is easy. Have them denounce moohammed as a pedophile before entry is permitted. islam is hate and a soul killer.

  • LibertyLover

    It is sad but true that some people are to depraved to save. Islam is a sick and disgusting abomination.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    When I was a youngster and listened to the stories of family and friends
    about where they had been I was struck with the loathing they had for
    the outer world and it's depravity. Reading this Post I am reminded of
    just that, depravity and evil. The betrayal of these young people by their
    teachers and the vileness of Islamic life opens the door to repoachment
    by moral people. Almost all that is evil is made normal in Islam, at that
    point of reality what truck can we have with them, someday maybe they
    will have and awakening to moral truth and how terrible it will be.
    And to think we have shed blood in Muslim lands, words fail me.

    Islam is a hate cult, not a religion. It was developed by mohammed to suit his perversions and control his minnions.

  • GBArg

    This is a very informative article, and I agree with 99% of the comments made.

    Off-topic, and with all due respect: Front Page Mag has many fine articles, and I often pass them on. I would do more of this EXCEPT the format is messy and time-consuming to copy. In general it's a messy format. Are any efforts underway for improvement to something more eye-appealing?

  • Luis

    Every day we read more information about the religion of peace, and it only reinforces our thinking that the mohammedans in the United States should be sent back to their mud hut villages and get reeducated on how to wipe their fannies–I mean, what can you say about a religion that feels it is necessary to tell the adhreents which hand should be use?

  • Josh Ebert

    Just wondering… what about Barack Hussein Obama, was he ever sexually victimized by his clerics while in the Madrassa? That might explain his bizarre behavior.

    • kafir4life

      That's an excellent point! And it may explain his world view!! I would go as far as to suggest that CPS keep an eye on the Obama girls in the White House. They could well be in danger, altho' not as much as they would if they were boys.

  • crackerjack

    This child abuse seems to be a "religious" thing. The Catholics priests can't keep of the kids. The Orthodox Haredim keep being caught messing with minors. Islamic "schools2 abuse kids. There must be a connection here somwhere.

  • Allahu Akbar

    Brother Mustafa Muhammad is right.Actually the appreciation of young boys is an integral part of Islam.It is the believers who will be rewarded with 72 houris(virgin nymphs) and 28 young boys with pearly teeth and clear skin.Maashallah.It is only infidels who see a problem with Muslim exercizing their Allah given right.Leave us to our “pedophilia” while you can burn in hell for your “womanizing”.Praise be to Allah.
