ROTHERHAM, England (ChurchMilitant.com) - The U.K. government is claiming children's protective services have "transformed" after it was exposed that Pakistani Muslim men were running a long-established rape gang in Rotherham.
Robert Spencer, a scholar in Islamic studies, tells Church Militant he doesn't believe there has been any reform, noting the root cause of the problem — Islam — is being ignored.
In November, the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted), a government organization established to inspect and regulate services for children and young people, claimed the "quality and impact of services for children are transformed" in Rotherham, adding, "Risks to children are recognised early and responded to ensuring their safety." It added, "The corporate response and associated change in the quality of children's services have been impressive."
Spencer blames the U.K. government's "abject failure to deal with Muslim rape gang activity" in the name of political correctness, asserting, "There needs to be a public repudiation by British authorities of the idea that it's "racist" to identify who these people are."
He continues, "There needs to be a public discussion of what motivates them which is Islam's teaching about how infidel women can be taken and used sexually," adding, "but nothing like that is on the horizon in the U.K."
A 2014 report indicated that between 2007–2013 a mostly Muslim Pakistani gang raped, trafficked and abused over 1,400 children while authorities ignored the crimes for fear of being called "racist."
Alexis Jay, a former chief inspector of Scotland Yard, revealed, "It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated."
She continued, "There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol [gasoline] and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone."
Around the same time, the new Ofsted report was released, two women went public, claiming that Muslim rape gangs are alive and well in Rotherham
Despite the fact there have been documented over 1,400 cases of rape and abuse, there have been only 21 convictions in Rotherham.
One woman claimed in May 2017 that she had reported being raped by Muslim gangs when she was 14 years old, "But as soon as I said the names, I was made to feel as though I was racist, and I was the one who had the problem." She added, "I was specifically told not to comment on the ethnicity of the perpetrators."
When a 15-year-old girl in Rochdale reported being raped by a Muslim gang, officials told her and her parents that she had simply made a "lifestyle" choice. She asserts, "How is being raped by dozens of men a lifestyle choice? Why would any girl of 15 want to do that?"
She continues, "They didn't want to acknowledge that it was Asian [Muslim] men hitting on white girls in case it started a race thing. It was uncomfortable for them," adding, "But it's not racist if it's really happening. I never wanted to be part of anyone's agenda. I just wanted to be rescued."
