The Benefits of Diversity............Asian Gangs

The following article is taken from the BBC's website. Surprisingly, for such a big story, it's hardly in a prominent position, simply tucked away under the BBC Manchester section:
Five men have been charged as part of a major investigation into the sexual abuse of girls in Oldham.

More than 20 men were arrested and three were charged with rape and two with abduction offences.

Shahzad Masood, and Suleman Mohammed, both 32, were charged with abduction and Sarwar Ali, 31, was charged with rape. All have been released on bail.

Kadir Hussain, 23, and Shakil Chowdhury, 39, were charged with rape and remanded in custody.

The arrests were made as part of a joint inquiry carried out by police, Oldham council, Oldham Primary Care Trust and the charity Barnardos.

Mr Masood, of Melford Avenue in New Moston and Mr Mohammed, of Derby Court in Werneth, were charged on 23 August.

Mr Hussain, of Princess Street, Ashton-under-Lyne, was charged on 12 November.

Mr Chowdhury, of Attock Close, Chadderton was charged on 2 November.

Mr Ali, of Chester Street, Werneth, was charged on 2 November.

The men appeared before Oldham Magistrates in October and November.

It's strange that this news has only just come out now. Especially as this is one of the busiest times of the year, in which most people have little time to follow the news.

It's even more strange that the article is so reticent to give out the full story. The fact that most of the girls are underage, one only twelve years old, is not mentioned at all.

Perhaps if this was an isolated incident it would not warrant generalisations. But Asian - meaning Pakistani Muslims - gangs have form:

The shocking revelation came as one Rotherham mother told the Yorkshire Post that her 13-year-old daughter was repeatedly raped by a gang of Asian men who befriended her.
It follows reports that police in Keighley are reopening investigations into alleged attacks on 33 teenage girls, whose mothers claim have been targeted by Asian men cruising the streets of the West Yorkshire town.
Many of the girls – who are all white – are reluctant to give evidence against their attackers, whom they see as their "boyfriends", and are seduced by presents and flattery before being assaulted.
Police and community leaders have discounted race as an issue but there are claims that the cultural background of arranged marriages is the key to understanding the problem.
The Rotherham woman branded her daughter's attackers "untouchable" amid a climate of fear and violence created by the gangs.
The girl fell victim to the men after they befriended her in Dinnington town centre, showered her with gifts and treated her to trips to a pub in their high-performance cars.
The teenager eventually reported the attacks to police but was too terrified to take her case to court for fear of abduction, her mother said.
The similarities are amazing. In the Oldham case, the gang befriended the girls by using the gift of a mobile phone, enabling them to keep in constant contact with them. And one can only presume from the Rotherham case that the presents mentioned are also mobile phones.

The Rotherham-gang article may state that this is a cultural and not a racial thing, as if this makes everything all right. In fact, it shows that there is a rotten culture that exists within the muslim community of misogyny, honour killings, rape gangs and suicide bombings. And, if this is 'vibrancy' and 'diversity', Tony Blair can keep it.
