Manchester’s Islamist Appeasing Police and Politicians Have Blood on Their Hands: Muslim sex grooming paved the way for the Manchester Arena attack

Manchester’s Islamist Appeasing Police and Politicians Have Blood on Their Hands: Muslim sex grooming paved the way for the Manchester Arena attack. By Daniel Greenfield.

In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena, the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia.

While Salman Abedi, the second-generation Muslim refugee terrorist who maimed and killed dozens in a brutal terrorist attack, stalked the streets wailing, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah”, Manchester police were busy with more important things.

The Greater Manchester Police are one of only two police forces to list Islamophobia as a hate crime category. …

No one takes Islamophobia more seriously than the Greater Manchester Police. When Muslim sex grooming gangs were abusing little girls in Rochdale, the GMP dutifully covered it up. On one of the recorded interviews, a police officer can be heard yawning as a girl describes her abuse.

An MP who had pursued these cases said that the authorities “were afraid of being called racist.” …

Even after Judge Clifton brought it out into the open, stating, “You preyed on girls because they were not part of your community or religion”, Detective Chief Superintendent Mary Doyle insisted, “I think if we start to get ourselves hung up on race and ethnicity issues, we take away the real issues.”

Detective Constable Maggie Oliver resigned from the GMP for its mishandling of the sex grooming cases. … Oliver blamed Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy. Fahy had been knighted for “services to policing”. …

Fahy was replaced by the GMP’s deputy chief constable. Ian Hopkins had cut his teeth on explaining the importance of Ramadan the same year that the GMP was apologizing to the victims of Muslim sex grooming. Even as the GMP fell from 8,000 to 5,300 officers, the new Chief Constable picked up a £172,000 ($223,000) salary. That was down from Fahy’s £206,000 ($267,000) package. …

The cowardly denunciation of Islamophobia was as strong as anything in Hopkins’ statement. It is Islamophobia, not the victims of Islam, that agitates the Chief Constable’s sensitive sympathies.

It was not the victims of Muslim sex grooming in Rochdale or its cover-up that outraged Hopkins. His greatest moment of outrage came when the London Times headlined the story of an Imam murdered by a fellow Muslim for not being Islamic enough as, “Imam beaten to death in sex grooming town.”

The headline was “offensive to the thousands of peaceful law abiding Muslims”, Hopkins complained. It wasn’t the abuse of little girls that was the problem. It was calling it out for what it was. …

Feelings will occasionally grow raw when picking the nails of the latest Muslim terrorist attack out of your child’s face or knowing that she has been raped by a dozen Pakistani men. It may even be possible that in their final dying moments, the victims of the Manchester Arena attack were afraid of Islam.
