There's so much tiptoeing around this story that you might get the impression that you're at the Bolshoi Ballet instead of reading an article about the breakup of two major paedo rings.
Unfortunately for the police, the paedos in question appear to originate from a religion whose prophet had a thing for little girls. Naturally the Scottish Express can't bring itself to say this, the prophet part or the Muslim part. The closest it can come to saying that is to mention that there is an ethnicity involved that "extremist" elements will capitalize on.
And it's a safe bet that it's not the Welsh we're talking of here. (via Religion of Peace)
In another, utterly appalling example of child abuse, two 13-year-old Scots girls were groomed and raped by a network of “numerous” paedophiles across Britain.
This operation resulted in 37 arrests and the identification of 108 further potential victims and perpetrators. Again, all of those involved are still awaiting trial.
The details of the crackdown were revealed by Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham to a Holyrood inquiry into the scale of child abuse. Concern is growing that the problem has been grossly underestimated for years, with police and prosecutors failing to take victims seriously.
Senior officers also fear the involvement of ethnic minority offenders in child sexual exploitation (CSE) will lead to “significant community tension”.
Ah, the dreaded backlash. No sooner does the Religion of Peace do something horrible, than we must all brace for the backlash.
So who are the ethnic offenders? The Express' paper lips are sealed, but there is one hint.
According to a police source, "There are groups of foreign nationals involved in this and maybe respect for women isn’t seen as being a high priority in their country of origin."
It's nice of the Scottish cops to be so understanding of the cultural differences involved.
Mr Graham said: “In two large scale CSE investigations in Scotland a significant proportion of the identified perpetrators were from ethnic minority communities. It is not possible to draw conclusions from this relatively small dataset and more accurate data and wider research is required.
Naturally. We mustn't jump the gun. Perhaps Mr. Graham would care to expand his dataset by abandoning his daughter in the vicinity of some moderate mosques and seeing how that goes.
“It is acknowledged extremist groups have attempted to associate CSE with wider immigration issues and this has the potential for significant unrest.”
Right, yes. The extremists are the ones who think filling Scotland with people whose religion was founded by a child molester might be a bad idea. The moderates are the ones who want to expand the dataset.
Mr Graham, formerly the top murder detective in Edinburgh, said the force was determined to “tackle this emerging threat to Scotland”.
Just not by talking about it or being extremist about it.
(I did an article on the SNP's flirtation with Islam a few years ago. These are the wages of it.)
As immigration rules funnel more Muslims to Scotland to replace the native population, the Scottish National Party is aligning itself with an Islamist agenda. Mosques are clashing with traditional pubs. Scottish medical workers have been barred from eating at their desks during Ramadan. The Burka is being promoted and Scottish Muslims have been planning to set up an Islamic state in some remote part of Scotland. But they might as well do it in Glasgow.
