UCMINISTRIES When I first read this story it took about three seconds to realize the full complexity of what has just happened.  The question is does anyone else see the full horror that is before us?   Just as one would drop a stone into a pond you begin to see the ripples move outward.  Mr Rashid may be a very small stone being dropped into the pond of British society.  But the ramification spread far and wide.

Let’s get the basics story line:

  • Adil Rashid admitted travelling to Nottingham and having sex with the girl
  • He met the 13-year-old on Facebook and they communicated by texts and phone for two months before they met
  • He was educated in a madrassa and ‘had little experience of women’
  • Said he had been taught ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’
  • Added he was reluctant to have sex but that he was ‘tempted by [the girl]’

A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.

Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’     Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence.   But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’. Rashid, from Birmingham, admitted he had sex with the girl, saying he had been ‘tempted by her’ after they met online.

They initially exchanged messages on Facebook before sending texts and chatting on the phone over a two-month period. They then met up in Nottingham, where Rashid had booked a room at a Premier Inn.  The girl told police they stayed at the hotel for two hours and had sex after Rashid went to the bathroom and emerged wearing a condom.

Rashid then returned home and went straight to a mosque to pray. He was arrested the following week after the girl confessed what had happened to a school friend, who informed one of her teachers. He told police he knew the girl was 13 but said he was initially reluctant to have sex before relenting after being seduced. Earlier the court heard how Rashid had ‘little experience of women’ due to his education at an Islamic school in the UK, which cannot be named for legal reasons.

After his arrest, he told a psychologist that he did not know having sex with a 13-year-old was against the law. The court heard he found it was illegal only when he was informed by a family member. In other interviews with psychologists, Rashid claimed he had been taught in his school that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’.  When Judge Stokes said Rashid ‘must have known it was illegal, unless he was going round with his eyes shut’, defence lawyer Laban Leake said reports suggested Rashid had a ‘degree of sexual naivety’. ‘The school he attended, it is not going too far to say, can be described as a closed community and on this occasion this was perpetuated by his home life.

It is not too far to say that he may not have known that having sex with a 13-year-old girl was illegal.’ Judge Stokes sentenced Rashid to nine months youth custody, suspended for two years, along with a two-year probation supervision order. Describing Rashid, the judge said: ‘He’s had an unusual education, certainly in terms of the sexual education provided. Comparing women to lollipops is a very curious way of teaching young men about sex.’

But he said that Rashid knew what he was doing was wrong.

‘It was made clear to you at the school you attended that having sexual relations with a woman before marriage was contrary to the precepts of Islam,’ he said. Addressing Rashid, the judge said: ‘I accept this was a case where the girl was quite willing to have sexual activity with you. But the law is there to protect young girls, even though they are perfectly happy to engage in sexual activity.’

Now the police are investigating Jimmy Savile and his many celebrity friends.  If anything it has been a naming it and shaming routine for many, even though no conviction has been pursued at this present moment.  Now here we have a 18-year-old Moslem who is prosecuted for rape and what is pedophilia.  What makes this story a truly horrific is that the man in question falls back on his religious upbringing.    Two very prominent statements struck me immediately on what this young man was  being taught in his closed community.

Women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground.

Judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

What sort of community teaches their children that women are worthless?  Seriously folks what sort of mental image does a child grow up with.  Condition to see women as some sort of object thats worthless.

Now according to the paper the school he went to can’t be name for legal reasons WHY NOT?  Are the police actively investigating?  In fact, why unlike Savile and his celebrity friends there no naming and shaming of the school in question?

The Most frightening aspect here, are there more students  like Adil Rashid  out there who have been taught that women are WORTHLESS.  In fact who is to say that in a few years time we will have a whole community of men whose basic beliefs is that women in general are nothing more than something you scrape of your shoe.  Believe me the possibility is very frightening for the future. The rights of women in Moslems countries are not good.  When someone is seen as worthless then violence against them becomes more acceptable, and more justifiable.

 The question that should be raised is this school still operating under their present mandate and if so why?  If this school is teaching such ideology then questions need to be asked on all levels of this society. Now I can’t help wondering that if this was anything other than a Moslem faith school the police  the newspapers and social services and even Parliament will be banging down their door for answers.  Does anyone hear anything from the news right now?

   Now  when you hear of some of the unrealistic naivety that other Moslem countries churn out  you might just begin to grasp the possibilities as to what might be round the corner for this country.

Saudis fear there will be ‘no more virgins’ and people will turn gay if female drive ban is lifted  

 The astonishing report comes after Shaima Jastaniya, a 34-year-old Saudi woman, was sentenced to 10 lashes with a whip after being caught driving in Jeddah.There has been strong protest in the country about the sentence – and about the law generally. But resistance to reform and change remains strong among conservative royals and clerics.

Let us not forget the absurdity of the Olympic games when Iranian Paralympic athlete refused to shake the Duchess of Cambridge’s hand.  All because she was a woman.

Such superstitious fear might be forgiven if this was the product of some simply mind, but when you have leading clerics coming out with such foolishness what then?  For women in Britain the right to drive is a basic human right.  Yet we would have private schools teachings their children that women are predominantly nothing better than a throw away lollypop.  Is this not a denial of such human rights?   The impact upon a nation if left could indeed be devastating unless there is a quick U-turn.  Islam fundamentalism is steeped in a seventh century mindset.  The desire for society and women in general to be regressed back to some medieval dark ages is clearly unacceptable.

In a recent book on the subject of Islamic violence against women this brief except speaks volumes.  Whilst I might not agree with every point it raises some serious questions.

Violence against women in Arab and Islamic countries

In Arab and Islamic countries, domestic violence is not yet considered a major concern despite its increasing frequency and serious consequences. Surveys in Egypt, Palestine, Israel and Tunisia show that at least one out of three women is beaten by her husband. The indifference to this type of violence stems from attitudes that domestic violence is a private matter and, usually, a justifiable response to misbehaviour on the part of the wife. Selective excerpts from the Koran are used to prove that men who beat their wives are following God’s commandments. These religious justifications, plus the importance of preserving the honour of the family, lead abusers, victims, police and health care professionals to join in a conspiracy of silence rather than disclosing these offences. However, a fair reading of the Koran shows that wife abuse, like genital mutilation and “honour killings” are a result of culture rather than religion.

My view is that it is not just cultural but also remains in part religious.  I am reminded of a story that was reported in the papers of a Moslem couple who came to blows a few years back.  The husband was a Moslem teacher at university in Germany,   His wife was not prepared to abandoned her love for western lifestyle which she felt was more relaxed.  As the Husband was raining blow upon blows upon her, he quoted from the Koran as justification for his right to beat her to a pulp.  Thankfully the German police disagreed and arrested the husband for assault.

 I believe this was the verse in question::

Koran 4: 34 Pickthal: Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.

Now compare that with what the Bible says:

1 Peter 3: 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [them] according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

There is a clear difference between the two.

It has been shown that when rights are diminished for either cultural or religious reasons violence against such individuals follows.

When you see something like this, the first think that comes to my mind is where are the parents?  Why are there no cries shouting out stop this is not right?   Could it be that there is something wrong in our society that tries to portray females and especially children in a way that makes them mere sexual objects. That somehow we have this need to dress them up in clothing which would even shame a Barbie doll.   With tee shirts   sometimes portraying messages which we would not even allowed our teenage daughters to wear.  The message that says you are undesirable unless you are dressed loosely and flaunt yourself sexually. This was posted recently in response to the mage in question.  It was part of a larger document which if you go to the source makes for interesting reading.

 “Little girls are being groomed into passively accepting their place as objects in our  pornified culture,and boys are being taught exploitive and abusive sexual scripts.”  CordeliaAnderson, Founder,Sensibilities PreventionServices Asasociety,

we are inundated with images and messages that are…

1) Sexualizing minors and children at younger and younger ages.
2) Portraying sexual exploitation and sexual violence as normal.
These messages are everywhere‐‐from TV shows and commercials,to movies and music,
billboards and bus shelters,even products designed for and marketed to kids.

For many the subtle indoctrination starts early.  Tv shows where comics spew sexual connotations which were once quietly obscured, but are now openly verbalised.  In  one MTV Reality TV show named  Georgia Shore based around a group of individuals from Newcastle  (four girls and four boys)  who are pushed together and left to demonstrate how crude  they can become.

TV  personalities  randomly joke and give their running commentary on what individual cast members have done and said.   The cast are also randomly interviewed on how far they have got in their sexual exploits   Little if anything is left to the imagination and that includes what spews out of their mouths.  And People dare to call this entertainment.

Women rock stars whose lyrics are becoming more sexually verbalised, whose routines sell their bodies are goods for sale and leaving in some case little to the imagination.  Where the paparazzi are there to report on what women don’t wear rather than what they do.  Making special effort to capture embarrassing moments that reveal the women sexuality

The subtle Photoshop of women whose wrinkles and shape are subtly changed to give an unrealistic reality that does not really exist.  All of which encourages the young to emulate what they see.  That portrays a message that if you want to get ahead in life then you do so by using your body and flaunt your sexualisation.  Even if your too young to even know what the word means. What makes it worse is that the parents have already been so well indoctrinated with this culture that they can’t even see the danger they are doing to their own children.   Now I m not talking about putting women into some burka  or heavy duty corset , but respectability does not have to go far to insure modesty for all.  Being respectful does not have to come at a cost of nudity.  The recent Olympics was a prime example.  Men’s clothing were loose fitting shorts, whilst some women garments were so short and tight that they barely covered even their modesty.

At every turn our children girls and boys are being bombarded with sexual images that affect them both mentally and physically.  That sadly reaffirms a reality that is not real.  Girls especially are bombarded with ideas that the thinner you are the more attractive you are , and we wonder why anorexia  has become such a problem in this day and age.  Most of these messages bombard our children day after day and often we fail to realise they are even there. We may realise it or not the world we live in is not always a pretty one   There are pressures on our children  which they should never need to face until older and wiser and yet there are being forced to grow up sooner rather than later.

Recent newspaper article has publicised major concerns about the recent rise of what could be called

The Sunday Post May 6
Newspaper

sickening mobile phone games.  The rise of technology has made it ever easier for children to download games, some of which involve extreme gang violence, boob jobs, decapitation, and execution.  Little if anything has been done to stem the outflow of this sewage.Parenting Groups have called for better regulations to stem this flow. However spokesmen for Ofcom has washed their hands and declared that this was outside of their remit.  Apple appears to be making these types of games readily available for children as young as nine.  I have no doubt that children even younger are able to get their hands on such games from older siblings. Developers of Mobster wars, Sack Dude, Crime City as well as Apple were asked to comment by the Newspaper, but did not respond.   Reg Bailey chairman of Mothers Union added: “I am keen to see the online industry enable parents to Block adult content across all devices purchased including smart phones.  These applications are downloaded with a simple click, and require no age verification or parental verification. 

Some of the games mentioned in the article.

Sack Dude

This game has its own Facebook following.  Here are a few of the comments made by those who follow this game..

Mobster games 

Here is the description of the game.

They took your brother, now you take your revenge!

Nothing more than an encouragement to break the law and take revenge.  Whilst many may simply see this as nothing more than just an arcade game.  The repercussions for some are not so clear.

Boob Job

Encourages  breast implants  and give instruction on how to ogle the opposite sex

The Bible says

Mat 24: 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold

Strongs translates this word  Cold  psychō 5594.

1) to breathe, blow, cool by blowing

2) to be made or grow cool or cold

3) metaph. of waning love

(Vines )”to breathe, blow, cool by blowing,” Passive Voice, “grow cool,” is used metaphorically in Mat 24: 12, in the sense of waning zeal or love.

What concerns many is that Violent video games that have been played on gaming sites soon become violent acts in real life.  Patrick and Giselle Pakeerah believe their son Stefan was murdered by his friends Warren Leblanc who bludgeoned him to death by a claw hammer and then repeatedly knifed him.  In the ensuing court case it was argued that Warren had an obsession with a violent game called Manhunt where points are given for savage killings.  Believe me from what I have seen the graphics are very very explicit shocking and even disturbing. Another is that of Ryan Chinnery  who was said to have carried out a  horrific sexual attacks on women after playing  the computer game Grand Theft Auto

 What sort of people even thinks up these games?  I mean really what sort of minds dwells on the most gruesome of killings.  Does it really excite them to develop a gaming experience where people are brutally killed in ways that in real life would have them locked up along side Jack the ripper.  There seems to be drive to make those games as violent and as gruesome as possible.   

The player does not just see his opponent killed as part of some fantasy game, but it is the extreme graphic content on how his opponent is killed.  Morality is suspended in the gaming, Kill or be killed.  The plumb line that says killing is wrong gets all messed around.  Bodies are decapitated, killed in the most horrendous of ways.  Young minds are influenced into believing that killing is both sanctioned and acceptable.   Sadly it might just be one step to killing in the real world.  There lies the real issue that concerns so many.  Where the boundaries between the fantasy and the real world become so blurred that the player can no longer recognise where there is a separation.

Where youngsters are fed a steady died of the bloodshed, killings murders committed in the most horrific of ways.  It is done with absolutely no conscience and no repercussions to their actions.  Is it any wonder that at times the line is crossed.  I wonder what would happen if those who make such games are hauled into court and prosecuted as accessories to any murders associated with their games. how long would it take before drastic changes are made to those games?

Whilst Mobile phones may only be just behind PC games like Manhunt, technoloical advances will enevitably mean that such games will become increasingly advailable in all their horrid and violent content on mobile phones as well.
