Each year, I post an article on safety for children at Halloween. My primary focus is always in terms of sexual predators, pedophiles, who see this day as a great opportunity to be around children they wouldn’t normally be allowed to contact, even registered sex offenders.
This year, I want to add other concerns: Basic trick-or-treating safety and Pet safety.
The number of child deaths due to vehicular manslaughter double during Trick-or Treat. This is unacceptable! Everyone knows children are out on this night, so there is no excuse for such tragic accidents. While dangerous objects in candy is a myth, candy givers rarely consider allergies, and children don’t always look at what they are given when digging into their goody bags with their friends.
Lastly, no on wants to see their child’s fun evening turn into the tragedy of a dead family pet. Pets and animals die from ingesting candy, running out into the street when the door is opened, and are taken into custody for attacking children coming into their yard. Animals are, also, tortured more this time of year – not for any TRUE Halloween celebration but by cruel, sociopaths who believe ridiculous myths about this time of year.
This article and any similar you may find is not meant to dampen the Halloween spirit or throw about panic. This is only a reminder about the dangers out there because so many allow their guard to drop so their kids can have as much fun as they had. They can still have just as much fun if you are willing to quietly do your part as their guardian. It is your obligation as they venture out so they CAN enjoy themselves and CAN enjoy childhood for as long as possible. They are counting on you to take their safety seriously and not put a neighbor’s feelings above theirs.
1. HALLOWEEN SAFETY: SEXUAL PREDATORS
RSO’s convicted of sexual misconduct with children are generally forbidden from participating in Halloween activities where children are allowed. This includes Trick or Treat. Many do not abide by that restriction and unless someone calls in a complaint, the police are busy across town with other crimes.
Moreover, in many states, the restrictions apply only to offenders on supervised probation. That’s right .. If a sexual predator has served his time or other punishment and is excused from supervised probation, he or she can legally hand out candy and toys to your children and walk among them at Halloween festivities. Since we all know the recidivism rate for sexual offenders of children can be as high as 100% when in the constant vicinity of their AOA (age of attraction), such a loophole puts our children at 100% risk when such pedophiles purposefully position themselves to stalk them.
Local law enforcement agencies, the FBI, and NCMEC, as well as volunteers like me, know that sexual predators consider Halloween the greatest opportunity of the year. They get to befriend kids with their parents right beside them, look at them through snug fitting costumes, and give them candy to convince them they’re okay.
This has long been a traditional predatory event for them. They even post stories about their encounters (LG moments, LB moments = Little Girl/Little Boy) the following day on pedophile forums and when getting together. We have read disturbing and vile accounts on pedophile forums about children in their costumes, descriptions of how sexy they look and the fantasies that were imagined about the neighbor’s child. We’ve heard them brag about getting children’s full names and addresses, and not just by the child but by the parent with whom the perp engages in a polite conversation. We’ve seen them coach each other in the proper ways of grooming the parents and the child in the following months for future sexual contact.
There was an elderly man a few streets over from our house who one year gave out small stuffed dinosaurs to only certain children – my daughter was one of them. He instructed each child to go home, read about the dinosaur, and return to tell him all about it, with an offer of cookies in his living room and a suggestion that they could come without mom or dad if they wanted. He wasn’t on the sex offender registry, but most parents knew this was crossing the line and less children were allowed to visit him the following year.
Not all child sexual abusers are listed on the National Sex Offender Registry, although it’s a very good idea to check out www.familywatchdog.us as well as the FBI’s official site registry for your state. Just because someone isn’t listed on the registry, it doesn’t mean they are harmless. It could mean they simply haven’t been caught.
Trick or Treat is a happy time for kids in this country and should not be feared or forgotten because of a few evil predators who use our kids as sexual fantasies. Simple caution can keep our kids safe and free to enjoy this enchanting time of year:
- Keep Halloween a fun experience for your children by reminding them of stranger protocol. Chance favors a prepared mind.
- Look at the registries and mark the houses on a map listed as the homes of sex offenders.
- Children should be reminded that although this is a fun ritual, strangers are still very much strangers and should not be given personal information (such as name, where they live, school, etc…). Teach your child it is improper for an adult to ask their name or where they live. Instruct your child to let you know if any one asks their information.
- Never allow children under 13 go out unsupervised. Every year, I see groups of small children accompanied by young teens and no parents in sight. This is unacceptable and anything that happens to those children are the fault of those parents – logically and legally.
- Choose your child’s costume with their age in mind. Age appropriate costumes and the designs of the costumes they wear (form fitting and revealing vs. slightly loose and comfortable) can be a deciding factor in one child being chosen as a target over another. Children allowed to dress provocatively are not only pleasing to a pedophile’s eye. They are, also, viewed upon by predators as having parents who don’t understand the dangers and more than likely, haven’t taught their children what is inappropriate regarding sexuality.
- Regardless of what a person at the door tells them, there is no good reason to ever return to that home. It could be a promise of more candy, letting them play with their dog or other family pet, etc…
- One thing pedophiles use to their advantage is that a child chooses their costume based upon their favorite things. This opens the door for a conversation with the child on the pretense of similar interests. If an adult tries to get into a conversation with your child, other than a brief “Nice costume” etc, take your child’s hand and leave immediately. It isn’t to say the person is a predator, but you cannot let your child grow accustomed to having conversations with strangers.
- Regardless of how polite the person is, they are still a stranger to you and your child. Therefore, you should not be giving out information, either. One grooming technique of sexual predators of children is to go through the parents to get to the child. This is not your friend or a chance at a first date. This is a stranger and should be treated as such for the safety of your child.
2. HALLOWEEN SAFETY: BASIC TRICK-OR-TREATING TIPS
Tips for Parents
On average, twice as many kids are killed in pedestrian/vehicle incidents on Halloween as compared to other days of the year. Pedestrian safety is not just the responsibility of the driver, however, parents can do their part to help kids stay out of the emergency room on Halloween by emphasizing safe pedestrian behaviors before they go out trick-or-treating.
• Cross streets safely. Children under 12 should trick-or-treat and cross streets with an adult. Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
• Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. Walk, don’t run, across the street.
• Pedestrians should try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
• Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
• Parents should remind children to be safe pedestrians around cars. Watch out for cars that are turning or backing up. Never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.
• Children should not be alone at night without adult supervision if they are under the age of 12. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit.
Kids will be out while it is dark – making it harder for drivers to see them. This lack of visibility makes it important for drivers to slow down and watch out for trick-or-treaters, especially around crosswalks. Parents should remember that costumes can be both creative and safe.
• Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.
• Choose face paint and make-up whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.
• Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights in order to see better, as well as be seen by drivers.
While pedestrian safety is a main concern on Halloween, parents and kids should also be careful when dealing with candy and costumes.
• Check treats for signs of tampering before children are allowed to eat them. Remind children to only eat treats in original, unopened wrappers. Candy should be thrown away if the wrapper is faded or torn, or if the candy is unwrapped.
• While glow sticks are good for visibility, remember that the liquid in glow sticks is also hazardous, so parents should remind children not to chew on or break them.
• Look for non-toxic designations when choosing Halloween makeup.
Tips for Drivers
Drivers need to do their part to keep trick-or-treaters safe from harm. Safe Kids Cape Fear and FedEx caution motorists to be extra careful this Halloween.
• Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods and school zones. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.
• Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
• Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
• Reduce any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
• Drive more slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and be sure to drive with your full headlights on so you can spot children from greater distances.
• Remember that costumes can limit children’s visibility and they may not be able to see your vehicle.
3. HALLOWEEN SAFETY: PETS
*credit goes to www.aspca.org
1. No tricks, no treats: That bowl of candy is for trick-or-treaters, not for Scruffy and Fluffy. Chocolate in all forms—especially dark or baking chocolate—can be very dangerous for dogs and cats. Candies containing the artificial sweetener xylitol can also cause problems. If you do suspect your pet has ingested something toxic, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.
2. Popular Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered to be relatively nontoxic, but they can produce stomach upset in pets who nibble on them.
3. Wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations should be kept out of reach of your pets. If chewed, your pet might suffer cuts or burns, or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.
4. A carved pumpkin certainly is festive, but do exercise caution if you choose to add a candle. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire. Curious kittens especially run the risk of getting burned or singed by candle flames.
5. Dress-up can be a big mess-up for some pets. Please don’t put your dog or cat in a costume UNLESS you know he or she loves it (yup, a few pets are real hams!). For pets who prefer their “birthday suits,” however, wearing a costume may cause undue stress.
6. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn’t annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal’s movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe, bark or meow. Also, be sure to try on costumes before the big night. If your pet seems distressed, allergic or shows abnormal behavior, consider letting him go au naturale or donning a festive bandana.
7. Take a closer look at your pet’s costume and make sure it does not have small, dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that he could choke on. Also, ill-fitting outfits can get twisted on external objects or your pet, leading to injury.
8. All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room away from the front door during peak trick-or-treating hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets.
9. When opening the door for trick-or-treaters, take care that your cat or dog doesn’t dart outside.
10. IDs, please! Always make sure your dog or cat has proper identification. If for any reason your pet escapes and becomes lost, a collar and tags and/or a microchip can be a lifesaver, increaing the chances that he or she will be returned to you.
After years of cyber attacks and protests on government agencies, credit card companies, Scientology, and anything believed to be corrupt and advantageous against the common citizen, Anonymous has FINALLY taken up arms against child abusers. Not just any child abusers but particularly pedophiles and child pornographers.
I’ve watched Anon(ymous) for years and have contacted a handful of people I’ve suspected, due to conversations on Anonymous posts, of being members of the group. After finally having an in-depth conversation back in 2007, I felt I was brushed off as though my “claims” of the growing pandemic of child rape, child sex slavery, and child porn were inflated at best. After that, I rolled my eyes anytime I saw Anonymous’ involvement in anything, feeling that if they were serious about doing good in this world and good for victimized citizens, they would take their obvious collective genius and succeed where the average volunteer and even the FBI seem to fail.
By the look of this news release and their manifesto, it would appear Anonymous’ jaunt into the world of child pornography has been a sobering experience, and as it does to all of us, has awakened a sleeping lion within that will never NEVER again slumber.
Welcome to the fight, Anonymous. No matter how hard it gets, you are not alone. Never stop! Regardless of your previous battles and victories, this is a whole new war. By your own admission, you’ve opened the door to things you’ll never be able to forget. It won’t get easier. This, I can promise, but you’ve finally come into the real world of what TRUE horror is, and you’ll never see things the same way again. You’ve grown up and you’ve done so with a bang! Thank you. From the bottom of my heart and with the intensity of my soul, Thank you!
The Anonymous campaign began Oct. 14, when members of the hacktivist group found a cache of child-pornography websites while browsing a secret website called the Hidden Wiki, a guidebook to hundreds of underground websites invisible to search engines and regular Internet users.

Tuesday, after hacking into Lolita City, a darknet website used by pedophiles to trade in child pornography, Anonymous released usernames and other information of 1,589 pedophiles trading in kiddie porn. (Click on heading for more)
Press Release – 10/15/2011
The owners and operators at Freedom Hosting are openly supporting child pornography and enabling pedophiles to view innocent children, fueling their issues and putting children at risk of abduction, molestation, rape, and death.
For this, Freedom Hosting has been declared #OpDarknet Enemy Number One.
By taking down Freedom Hosting, we are eliminating 40+ child pornography websites, among these is Lolita City, one of the largest child pornography websites to date containing more than 100GB of child pornography.
We will continue to not only crash Freedom Hosting’s server, but any other server we find to contain, promote, or support child pornography.
Our demands are simple. Remove all child pornography content from your servers. Refuse to provide hosting services to any website dealing with child pornography. This statement is not just aimed at Freedom Hosting, but everyone on the internet. It does not matter who you are, if we find you to be hosting, promoting, or supporting child pornography, you will become a target.
“More than 400 children have complained of physical abuse at Islamic schools in the UK, but only two people have been convicted, figures revealed today.
And just 10 of the 420 cases made it as far as court, raising fresh concerns over the use of corporal punishment in Muslim classes.
The issue was first highlighted in February, when a shocking documentary secretly filmed teachers in a part-time faith school hitting children and delivering lessons in hatred and segregation.”
Currently, there is a swiftly growing battle in the United States surrounding what has been termed Islamization and Creeping Sharia. These refer to the deliberate take-over of free-thinking societies by muslims who are following their holy teachings to dominate the world, through force when necessary. Below are some links to very interesting sites to help people better grasp just what these people believe.
Although my site is not about politics or religion or taking favor/finding fault with any particular political or religious label as a whole, I do not hesitate bringing to light anyone or any group operating on behalf of that classification. Especially when a group has shown they, as a whole, support illegal activity and violence against the innocent — particularly children.
FROM THE QURAN:

FROM THE SITE INFO ON ISLAM: SEXUAL JIHAD: (I rarely copy entire posts but this is extremely important. Please visit the original site to show support and learn more about this danger to our children, ourselves, and our country)
Organised pedophilia as a ‘community activity’
Of course you find pedophiles and rapists in all communities, but these are nearly always loners operating in secret, because pedophiles are despised and hated by normal people.
However Islam is different . Pedophilia is socially acceptable in Islambecause ‘the perfect man’ Mohammed was a pedophile. In addition, pedophile attacks on ‘kuffar’ (non-Muslim) children are seen as alegitimate form of jihad, inflicting humiliation and demoralisation on the children and their parents.
The Islamic invasion of the West is one huge razzia (raid of rape and pillage) and Western children are war booty. Pedophila is widespread in Muslim communities, with Christian children being the main targets. The pedophiles operate in well-organised gangs and networks. They are protected and encouraged by their wider communities and enjoy immunity from prosecution so as not to damage ‘Community Cohesion’
There are many forms of jihad, not all of which involve bombs and bullets. Sexual jihad, using rape and other forms of sexual humiliation and sadism has been used as a weapon of war since the time of Mohammed.
Although originally confined to Europe, Islamic pedophile networksare now being set up in America.
Here are some more examples of sexual jihad carried out to humiliate the infidels…
Children forced to drink urine, raped and murdered
“The ways in which they were treated I will abbreviate . Children were shot for crying. Teachers and parents were shot for trying to calm the hostages. Young girls were gang raped. Young girls were raped with gun barrels and other objects. Many young girls did not survive these rapes. Children were forced to drink their own urine before being executed. The list of inhuman acts committed by these Muslim animals is as nothing I have ever heard before.”
The Rape Jihad
“What does rape, then, have to do with these religious conflicts? Unfortunately, everything. The Islamic legal manual ‘Umdat al-Salik, which carries the endorsement of Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, stipulates: “When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” Why? So that they are free to become the concubines of their captors. The Qur’an permits Muslim men to have intercourse with their wives and their slave girls: “Forbidden to you are … married women, except those whom you own as slaves” (Sura 4:23-24).”
Sweden Tops Europe for Number of Rapes = Muslim Rape Jihad
” Sweden is now experiencing the results of multiculturalism and and its facilitating of Islamization. Now Sweden leads Europe in the number of reported rapes – more specifically Rape Jihad.
“Sweden, 46 incidents of rape are reported per 100,000 residents. This figure is double as many as in the UK which reports 23 cases, and four times that of the other Nordic countries, Germany and France. The figure is up to 20 times the figure for certain countries in southern and eastern Europe……Over 5,000 rapes are reported in Sweden per annum while reports in other countries of a comparable size amounted to only a few hundred.” see below article
Way back in July of 2005, well known blogger Fjordman warned of Sweden’s escalating rape crisis but unlike the below article – which tries to cover up the real facts and blame the increase in rapes to “party lifestyles” – the evidence clearly shows that the rape crisis is directly due to MUSLIM immigration into the Country:
Muslim Rapes Christian Toddler for Refusal to Convert to Islam
“Baby Neeha, at the age of 21/2, was raped by the son of her father’s employer and left to die by the roadside, he said. No one was arrested for the crime.
These horrific events took place because her father, who was Christian, refused to give in to pressure from his Muslim employer to convert to Islam,” El Shafie said.
The family went underground in Pakistan to hide from Muslim extremists who were seeking revenge for their non-conversion, he said.
“The family has lived for years in hiding and in constant fear of being discovered by the employer’s family or Islamic extremists,” El Shafie said. “We are thrilled that she’s finally in Canada.”
For those of us seeking a better understanding Islam, there are a few points to note:
The rapist wasn’t prosecuted, because according to Islamic law he hadn’t committed any crime. The ‘prophet’ Mohammed was a child-rapist, and Mohammed is the perfect man and role model for all Muslims. Also, rape is a legitimate weapon of Jihad, especially against children, as we saw in the Beslan school attack.
Not only had the rapist not committed any crime, but his action was actually commendable from the Islamic point of view, because spreading Islam (by whatever means may be necessary) is the greatest good which justifies ANY action. The system of morality (if it can be called that) in Islam is totally different from that in any other religion.
This attack also shows a common Islamic trait of getting at Christians by attacking children and other vulnerable people (as at Beslan and in the ‘Street Jihad’ intifada by young Muslim men).
Increasing the power of Islam http://s1.zetaboards.com/EDL_The_Forum/topic/3973235/1/ justifies ANY action , which includes lying as well as rape, murder and anything else you can think of.
Islamic Gang Rape and Violent Assault on Kuffar Woman Reporter
“The media is so intent on whitewashing the savage protesters in Tahrir square in Cairo that the brutal rape and beating of Lara Logan went on in public for at least a half hour to three hours, according to various reports. The people in the square watched it and allowed it to go on for some extended period of time.
Think about that. These horrible people stood by for hours while this went on. And the media paints these people as “freedom-yearning people.” And the dirty little secret about this is that this kind of treatment of an infidel woman is acceptable in Islam, and that’s why the media doesn’t talk about it.
The media’s collective silence makes them as guilty as those in the crowd that stood by and did nothing.
And the UN? They are busy drafting resolutions condemning the tiny Jewish state.
CBS international reporter Lara Logan is a well known public figure. And CBS and other media have accepted that she was brutally assaulted. However, Youtube and some Arab Websites are offering some further claimed shocking details not reported by the U.S. media and even some video about the extreme brutality of the attack on CBS reporter Lara Logan . Reportedly, some videos did show a crowd of about 200 or more men surround and separate Lara Logan from her security, and the crowd shouted “Jew, Jew!”, and “American bitch!”. Lara Logan is not Jewish or American, she’s a South African native.
Reportedly some of physical and sexual assault activity was caught on camera phones as well. One video purportedly involved some boy fondling the breasts of the reporter. However, another purported video that was described by a controversial YouTube video claims that a bearded man ripped the top off the reporter and began slapping her face and breasts. He then pinned her to the ground, and by this time she stopped resisting, apparently accepting the fact that she was overpowered. The bearded man then removed her pants and masturbated in front of her before raping her. He also reportedly clawed at her breasts with his hands. The YouTube video claims that at least six men raped her vaginally, and a number of men also raped her anally as well. She was reportedly masturbated on and urinated on by some men as well according to the YouTube video claims which was supposed to be pieced together from information and videos posted on Arab Websites and other sources.
It was claimed by various reports that the sexual assault and beatings might have lasted anywhere from 20-30 minutes on the short side, and as long as about 3 hours on the other hand. It was also claimed that her left breast might have been bitten or might even had the left nipple bitten off as well. One report claims that somewhere from 6 to about 50 men might have sexually assaulted or beat the attractive reporter.http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2011/02/lara-logans-vicious-violent-gang-rape-medias-silencesanction.html
Muslim Gang Rape and Islamic Sexual Mutilation of Christian Girls in the Middle East
Hypermasculine Muslims – Islam and hypermasculinity Predatoryand domineering, Islam is a brutal, hypermasculine, barbarian, tribal warrior cult that glories in murder, mutilation, rape, genocide,terrorism, destruction and anarchy. Women, girls and all the feminine aspects human nature are chattelised and subjugated. Weakness isdespised and seen as ripe for predation.
A woman or girl is to be owned, not treated as an equal. If she punctures the fragile inflated ego of her owner, then she must bekilled to restore the man’s ‘honour’ among his peers. Kuffar women and children are war booty.
Islam is predatory, bullying, aggressively arrogant, swaggering wife-beating thuggery, which is the destroyer of all that is beautiful, spiritual, gentle, innocent and vulnerable.
Sex as violent domination
“Socially segregated from women, Arab men succumb to homosexual behavior. But, interestingly enough, there is no word for “homosexual” in their culture in the modern Western sense. That is because having sex with boys, or with effeminate men, is seen as a social norm.Males serve as available substitutes for unavailable women. The male who does the penetrating, meanwhile, is not emasculated any more than if he had sex with a wife. The male who is penetrated is emasculated. The boy, however, is not, since it is rationalized that he is not yet a man.
In this culture, males sexually penetrating males becomes a manifestation of male power, conferring a status of hyper-masculinity. It is considered to have nothing to do with homosexuality. An unmarried man who has sex with boys is simply doing what men do. As the scholar Bruce Dunne has demonstrated, sex in Islamic societies is not about mutuality between partners, but about the adult male’s achievement of pleasure through violent domination.
There is silence around this issue. It is the silence that legitimizes sexual violence against women, such as honor crimes and female circumcision. It is also the silence that forces victimized Arab boys into invisibility. Even though the society does not see their sexual exploitation as being humiliating, the psychological and emotional scars that result from their subordination, powerlessness and humiliation is a given. Traumatized by the violation of their dignity and manliness, they spend the rest of their lives trying to get it back.”
Vicious, sadistic Muslim gang rapes in Australia
On August 16, New South Wales Judge Michael Finnane sentenced a 20-year-old youth to a 55-year jail term with a 40-year non-parole period after he was found guilty of leading a series of gang rapes in Sydney…(this)…lifetime imprisonment follows the conviction and sentencing of two other young men-Belal Hajeid and Mahmoud Chami-for their part in the crimes. Hajeid is serving a 23-year sentence, with a 15-year non-parole period, and Chami, an 18-year term, with 10 years non-parole. A week after the 55-year jail term decision, a 19-year-old youth who also participated was sentenced to 25 years imprisonment. Three other teenagers-18-year-old Mohamad Senussi, his 17-year-old brother Mahmoud Senussi and 18-year-old Tayyab Sheihk-were sentenced today to 21, 11 and 15 year jail terms respectively.
The sexual assaults, which X is alleged to have organized, took place on three separate occasions in August 2000, just before the Sydney Olympic Games. The first occurred on August 10 when eight young men forced two teenage girls to repeatedly perform oral sex on them in a suburban park. The girls were threatened and bashed during the ordeal. Two days later a 16-year-old-girl was taken to a local park. Two cars arrived on the scene and she was forced to the ground, partially stripped and raped by two men. She was threatened and a gun held to her head to stop her struggling. She eventually escaped and was given sanctuary by a man from the local neighborhood.
On August 30, another young girl was raped by a total of 14 men, including X. She was sexually assaulted by four youth in a public toilet, then passed over to a group of three who drove to another location where she was raped again. The girl was transported to an industrial estate and sexually assaulted by two other groups of youth, who then hosed down the distraught teenager in a final humiliation.
Press reports of the trial allege that the men, who come from Lebanese immigrant families in Bankstown and Greenacre-working class suburbs in southwest Sydney-selected the girls because they were Australian. According to prosecution evidence, the young men called the girls “Aussie pigs” and subjected them to racist taunts during the rapes. Defence lawyers challenged these claims. While it is not possible to determine if the gang rapes were racially motivated, Judge Finnane likened the violent and sadistic assaults to those “usually seen in war zones”. This comment, which contains more than a grain of truth, raises several crucial issues.
The gang rapes certainly bore the hallmarks of crimes committed against civilians during military conflicts, death threats, beatings, the total degradation and dehumanisation of the victims. But this triggers the obvious question, why has such behaviour emerged in suburban Sydney. And if it was racially motivated, why?
Mumbai terrorists sexually mutilated Rabbi and his pregnant wife
“Indian official sources are now reporting what many Israelis knew but did not report. Now, with graphic reports appearing in the Mumbai Mirror and the Atlas Shrugs blog, it is confirmed that “the Rabbi and his wife at Nariman House were sexually assaulted and their genitalia mutilated,” according to an unnamed senior officer of the investigating team quoted by the Indian paper.
Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka, reported in advanced stage of pregnancy, were among the 8 murdered by terrorist in the Chabad House. Their two year old child was rescued.
According to the Mumbia Mirror, “Disturbing photographs made available to this newspapers by police sources indicate that several of the guests at the Taj Mahal Hotel during the siege November 26 were sexually humiliated by the terrorists and then shot dead.”
“Police sources confirm that even as the terrorists were engaged in a fierce combat with NSG commandos, they were humiliating their hostages before ending their terrifying ordeal. Photographs taken by a police forensic team after the hotel was sanitised yield a gruesome picture of some of the guests in the nude.”
Christians testicles and rectum mutilated by jihadists in moderate secular Turkey
MALATYA, Turkey: Three Protestants murdered at a Christian publishing house here were tortured for three hours before their assailants slit their throats, a press report said Friday, quoting one of the doctors involved in the grisly case. Dr. Murat Ugras, a spokesman for the Turgut Ozal Medical center, told the daily Hurriyet of hospital surgeons’ fruitless efforts to save Ugur Yuksel, one of the three victims of the massacre at the Zirve (summit) publishing house, which distributed Christian literature.
“He had scores of knife cuts on his thighs, his testicles, his rectum and his back,” Ugras said. “His fingers were sliced to the bone. It is obvious that these wounds had been inflicted to torture him,” he said.
But they’re just following the example of the ‘Perfect Man’
“Safiyah was a beautiful 17 years old Jewish woman who was captured when Muhammad’s troops raided Kheibar. She was the daughter or Huyeiy Ibn Akhtab, the chief of the Banu Nadir, a Jewish tribe of Medina , whom Muhammad had beheaded two years earlier along with the men of Banu Quriaza. The tribe of Banu Nadir had been already banished from Medina and their properties were confiscated.
Safiyah had married to her cousin Kinana, who was a young Jewish leader of Kheibar. When Muhammad raided that fortress, he killed its unarmed men and captured the rest. A Jewish traitor, to gain Muhammad’s favor and be spared from death, told him that Kinana was the treasurer of the town and that he used to hide the money in some ruins. Muhammad ordered Kinana to be tortured to reveal the whereabouts of the treasures and killed him.
Then he asked the prettiest woman from amongst that captives to be brought to him. Ibn Ishaq writes: “The apostle occupied the Jewish forts one after the other, taking prisoners as he went. Among these were Safiya, the wife of Kinana, the Khaibar chief, and two female cousins: [sisters of Kinana] the apostle chose Safiya for himself. The other prisoners were distributed among the Muslims. Bilal brought Safiya to the apostle, and they passed the bodies of several Jews on the way. Safiya’s female companions lamented and strewed dust on their heads. When the apostle of Allâh observed this scene, he said, ‘Remove these she devils from me.’ But he ordered Safiya to remain, and threw his reda [cloak] over her. So the Muslims knew he had reserved her for his own. The apostle reprimanded Bilal, saying, ‘Hast thou lost all feelings of mercy, to make women pass by the corpses of their husbands?’”
Safiyah was taken to Muhammad’s tent. Muhammad wanted to have sex with her on that very night, only hours after torturing to death her husband. She resisted his advances. That night Abu Ayyub al-Ansari guarded the tent of Muhammad. When, in the early dawn, Muhammad saw Abu Ayyub strolling up and down, he asked him what he meant by this sentry-go; he replied: “I was afraid for you with this young lady. You had killed her father, her husband and many of her relatives, I was really afraid for you on her account”. (Ibn Ishaq, p. 766)
The next day Muhammad covered Safiyah with his mantle, an act signifying that she is now his. Safiyah was groomed and made-up for Muhammad by Umm Sulaim, the mother of Anas ibn Malik and was taken to Muhammad who married her in a mock marriage ceremony and raped her that night. Muslims call this marriage. I call that rape. I am certain not many young women would like to jump into bed with an old man who happens to be the murderer of their father and husband and many other relatives. That poor woman had no choice; therefore that marriage was nothing but a mockery of this sacred institution. At that time Muhammad was close to sixty years old.
Another victim of Muhammad was Rayhana, a 15 year old girl from the tribe of Banu Quraiza. Muhammad massacred all the men of that tribe. Then women were brought to him to pick and he chose Rayhana. Rayhana never married Muhammad and unlike Juwairiyah and Safiyah never feigned being a Muslim to have an easier life. She preferred to remain a sex slave rather the wife of the murderer of her father, brothers and uncles. .
Years of covering up – Muslims get Child Sex Documentary banned on ‘Racial’ Fears
“The producers of this documentary spent a year working with Bradford Social Services and the troubled people they help. “These are the neighbours we don’t want to know whose problems we don’t want to see,” said the producers. How right they were.
LONDON (Reuters) – A British television documentary which shows Asian men grooming under-age white girls for sex has been shelved because of fears it could incite racial violence ahead of elections, Channel 4 said Friday. The broadcaster said the decision to pull “Edge of the City” was taken after discussions with police.
Bradford, the northern city where the program was filmed, was rocked in 2001 by race riots between Asians and whites. “The police feared that the timing of the broadcast would increase community tensions in Bradford…with the risk that it would lead to public disorder,” the broadcaster said in a statement. The program, which was to have been screened earlier this week, explores what it calls an explosion of child abuse whereby Asian men in the city have been targeting young girls for sex — one as young as 11 — by plying them with drugs.
The Muslim Political Affairs Committee (MPAC) is crowing:
“Success: ‘Edge of the City’ Stopped. It was a last minute rush to get this biased documentary postponed, but we did it. MPACUK readers rushed to register their dismay at linking race with paedophiles; the police registered their concern by stating that it could cause racial tensions and MPAC contacted 5 MPs and a Lord to ask them to raise this with Channel 4. Here is MPAC’s story on what we did, who we talked to and the one guy who we got to. This is why lobbying works and why Muslims need to know their MPs.”
Everyone knows about Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, and Black History Month, but I rarely find anyone who can tell me about Child Abuse Awareness Month, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Sexual Abuse Awareness Month. In fact, the only people who seem to know about these causes are those personally involved.
Hollywood airs culture-friendly awareness spots and schools teach black history during February and hispanic history during October. The world seems to turn pink during October even though not everyone has experienced in some way the effects of this horrible disease. We are all aware of the red Aids ribbons and patriotic yellow. See someone wearing a black ribbon, and you know they are in mourning.
Would you know the meaning behind a blue ribbon? Teal? Purple?
Where are the ads breaking into television programs to promote the awareness of domestic violence, sexual violence – toward adults as well as children, or child abuse? Where are the safety seminars during a designated month at schools or the work place? Where are the handouts with statistics of victims, declarations of how society is working to stop the violence, advice on how to report it and protect ourselves, and tips on how the community can get involved?
Abuse is like a disease — Keeping quiet isn’t going to make it go away, but it will make it get worse.
Right now, we are working around the clock to find cures for cancer and Aids and other deadly, debilitating diseases.
Right now, we are celebrating and even fighting about the color of our skin.
Right now, we are supporting our troops and arguing all across the press and internet about our military forces.
Right now …… no one wants to talk about children being raped, abused, sold into sex slavery; teenage runaways being forced into child prostitution or of teen date rape; spouses being physically, mentally, and sexually abused; or any of the afore mentioned types of victims being murdered to guarantee their silence or because they simply were of no more use.
Our priorities need to change today for the leaders of tomorrow. We need to start SPEAKING OUT loudly as a solid society against these atrocities that span the globe. They are a pandemic! Victims need to know they will be heard and helped so they can SPEAK UP.
Silence is an abuser’s best friend and the ONLY thing protecting him/her and allowing the abuse to continue.
If you can’t speak up for yourself, or you don’t want to for whatever reason, think of the victims after you and those your abuser may, at this moment, also be abusing.
Finding a cure for cancer is a long and complicated process. Finding a cure for abuse only takes one voice.
