Chelmsford-based Iranian sex gang accused of 'toeing the party line' with their accounts
clear

The prosecution is concluding their case in this trial. From the Essex Chronicle

Five Iranian men accused of being part of a Chelmsford-based sex and drugs gang are "toeing the party line", a court heard.

The crown's case against the men was summed up in Chelmsford Crown Court yesterday (November 28).

Prosecuting, Christopher Paxton said Mohammed Rostami, 37, of The Renown, Shoebury, had sex with the first alleged victim when she was under the age of 16, raped her, and farmed her out to various men in the Iranian community in return for cocaine and mephedrone.

He also told jurors Mehdi Zare, 32, of Lupin Drive, Chelmsford, had sex with the same victim when she was underage on multiple occasions, supplied her drugs and, alongside Rostami, farmed her out to other men for sex in return for drugs.

It is also claimed Amin Kaveh, 35, supplied her with mephedrone.

He said: "At the very heart of this case are truth and lies. On the one hand she alleges these crimes and these three defendants say they didn't happen. Why would she lie? Bear in mind all she has had to say. She has had to expose all aspects of her life, warts and all. There is no gain for her to tell lies against three innocent men."

Mr Paxton said the woman's evidence should be believed because of the "layers and layers of detail" she has included throughout her interviews and evidence.

"They all toe the party line in pushing [the victim] to the edges," Mr Paxton said.

"It demonstrates to you just how closely these men are linked and just how they are connected. When you stand back and look at the evidence, these five men have exploited these young women, doing what they wanted, when they wanted, knowing those within the group and community would not tell and these two girls would not be believed should they ever choose to tell.

You can believe [the women]. You can be satisfied so that you are sure and I would invite you to return a guilty verdict on every count."

The trial will hear the summing up from the defence case and Judge Patricia Lynch before the jury is sent out to deliberate.

The sun rises every day on our planet, just as it does on yours. What we do, however, is project an image in the atmosphere at the horizon so that our people, if they are inclined to wake early, can start their day with something nice to look at. Today it’s the skyline of the city you call New York.  more>>>

Over my seventy years I’ve admired a number of public figures but have given my heart (so to speak) only to two, Ronald Reagan and William F. Buckley, Jr. The answer to the question, Why these two? is simple, though not so simple as to offer it here; fortunately, with respect to my fondness for Buckley, I don’t have to, for Heather Hendershot has provided one definitive answer.  more>>>

Tom Wolfe, The Kingdom of Speech
New York: Little, Brown, 2016.  185pp.  $26.

 

 

Tom Wolfe is back and enjoying himself as much as he ever has. His reporting is sound: historically accurate and thorough, with archives consulted and sources cited. His argument – Darwin’s Origin of the Species and its impact were largely contrivances and no “theory of everything” can account for speech: it simply did not evolve, from anything – is rigorous and, at least on its surface, dispositive: he certainly makes a prima facie case.  more>>>

by Richard Kostelanetz (December 2016)

One myth propagated in post-1970 America held that artists, especially avant-garde artists, no longer needed to go abroad to establish their careers, thanks to increasing largess from our universities and arts councils; but this smug assumption was false, simply because American institutions scarcely supported truly advanced artists, some of whom earned greater recognition abroad.  more>>>

Act 1, Scene 1:

The Tell Mama UK offices, in London, England.

The camera pans across a peaceful scene reminiscent of an old Dickensian kitchen. A large roast pig is slowly turning on a spit above an open fire in a hearth. Two obviously Moslem gentlemen, Abdul and Muhammad, both with big bushy black beards, white pyjamas and little white hats, are sitting back in their chairs by the fire with their feet up on a dilapidated kitchen table. Muhammad is reading the Guardian, while Abdul is engrossed in “What Virgin” magazine.  more>>>

Tell Mama Lies: How to Lie About Islamophobia

by Paul Austin Murphy (December 2016)

Although the image/representation above is from the largest “anti-Islamophobia” organisation in the United Kingdom, American readers will be well aware that similar organisations and individuals exist in the United States (e.g., CAIR, Nathan Lean, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Georgetown University, Loonwatch and many more). And, like Tell Mama, they too indulge in obfuscation, dissemblance and ambiguity. Indeed many happily lie for the cause of Islam.  more>>>

A New Perspective on the Development of Nepal

by Geoffrey Clarfield (December 2016)

1) Introduction

In the scramble to assist Nepal in its desire to reach the standard of living of an average OECD nation, the OECD provides more than 50% of Nepal’s development funding. Clearly then Nepal is a different kind of society than those of the fully industrialized world. But what is its exact nature? Until 1950 Nepal was a classic agrarian state. Since 1950 it has become an industrializing agrarian state, with many of the classic features of this kind of social formation that characterizes societies as culturally distinct but structurally similar as Mexico, Guatemala, Turkey or Morocco.  more>>>

The Islamic Trade in European Slaves
clear

by Emmet Scott (December 2016)

It is common knowledge that, for over a thousand years, Arab and Muslim slavers took enormous numbers of men, women and children from sub-Saharan Africa. What is not so well known is that they took equally large numbers of people from Europe. As with Africa, Arab slave-taking in Europe began in the seventh century – shortly after the rise of Islam – and continued virtually without interruption into the modern epoch.  more>>>
