Saving the Children — For Pederasty

Cultural Enrichment News

This is a particularly vile “cultural enrichment” news item from the UK. According to Barking and Dagenham Recorder:

Paedophile Worked for Children’s Charity

A SAVE the Children worker who led a double life as a member of an international internet paedophile ring is facing years behind bars.

Sohail Ayaz, 35, of Whiting Avenue, Barking, came to the UK on a two-year visa after molesting a 13-year-old boy and taking photos of the abuse.

He is also wanted in Italy accused of helping perverts there and in Norway sexually assault at least 15 Romanian children.

The administrator was arrested at his desk at the charity’s London headquarters on February 4.

A search of his computer hard drive at his home uncovered around 400 sick photographs and 112 movies. Some of the snaps depicted him in sexual scenes with the teenage boy and led to an investigation in another country.

He is understood to have carried out the abuse over several years.

Last week at Southwark Crown Court, Ayaz — originally from Pakistan — admitted three child sex charges relating to the boy, taking photos and sharing them in chatrooms. Police have applied to have him deported after he has served his sentence.

Judge Peter Testar remanded him in custody, ahead of sentence on July 28.

Ishbel Mattheson, spokesman for Save the Children, said outside court it had not been deemed necessary to carry out Criminal Records Bureau checks.

She said: “He was a fairly junior clerical worker and did not have any contact with children or access to any confidential information about children.

“There was no identifiable risk in view of the work he was doing.

“It is a case which has obviously shocked and horrified us as a children’s organisation, and we really welcome the result today in the court and the Met officers’ efforts to bring this man, who is obviously a danger to children, out of circulation.

That he's from Pakistan doesn't really have much to do with the crimes he committed.

Red Squirrel said...

Excuse me Homophobic Horse, but the fact that he is from a backward Muslim society has everything to do with it!

HH --

On the contrary, throughout the Islamic world, the more devoutly Muslim a country is, the more pederasty goes on. It has to do with polygamy and the seclusion of women: the shortage of heterosexual outlets leads young men to sodomize much younger boys.

The practice is common in Arabia, "Palestine", Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Read up on what happened to Mukhtar Mai's brother.

The cultural tradition of pederasty has a long history in these cvountries, although it is not publicly discussed. Our troops in Afghanistan discovered that the keeping of catamites by imams and other important men is quite common.

When Muslims punish a homosexual, it is a grown man who willingly puts himself on the receiving end. A man who takes advantage of a boy is not considered a homosexual.

For those of you interested in movies, The Kite Runner (also a great book, but one that I have not read) depicted one of the Taliban leaders in late 1990's Afghanistan as a keeper of young boys.

The more islamized our countries get, the more used to this we have to get. The massive inpouring of muslims will hardly decrease this trend. On the contrary, our politicians will be happy to appease them with favorable legislation instead and turn a blind eye to this.

Just one more reason to despise the religion of Allah. The faith of buggerers the world over!

HH: That he's from Pakistan doesn't really have much to do with the crimes he committed.

Isn't it a little curious then, why those supremely devout Muslims―known in Pakistan as the Taliban―should have to post a specific rule about young boys?

19) Mujahideen are not allowed to take young boys with no facial hair onto the battlefield or into their private quarters.

The special mention of facial hair relates to what the Baron was noting. A youth who has yet to enter puberty is not considered to be a man and, therefore, sexual relations with him do not constitute homosexuality.

Also, if Mohammad consummated marital relations with a "wife" of nine years-old, imagine the open season there must be on young boys.

Along with an odd video clip titled, "The Homoerotic Taliban", Amy Alkon posts this observation by psychiatrist John Racy:

It is no surprise that John Racy, a psychiatrist with much experience in Arab societies, has noted that homosexuality is “extremely common” in many parts of the Arab world. [1] Indeed, even though homosexuality is officially despised in this culture and strictly prohibited and punishable by imprisonment, incarceration and/or death, having sex with boys or effeminate men is actually a social norm. Males serve as available substitutes for unavailable women. The key is this: the male who does the penetrating is not considered to be homosexual or emasculated any more than if he were to have sex with his wife, while the male who is penetrated is emasculated. The boy, however, is not considered to be emasculated since he is not yet considered to be a man. A man who has sex with boys is simply doing what many men (especially unmarried ones) do. And this reality is connected to the fact that, as scholar Bruce Dunne has demonstrated, sex in Islamic-Arab societies is not about mutuality between partners, but about the adult male's achievement of pleasure through violent domination.

The last sentence about "violent domination" reveals much about the male Muslim mentality. Even the most intimate of acts must have a subtext of violence. Little wonder that Islam as a whole is so deranged.

If the Christians of the West are so much superior to the Muslims, then all the more disappointing that the Christian Westerners, with all their superior qualities, don't seem to be able to keep their fingers (and other body parts) away from little boys either:

Zenster said...

Leroy, try looking at the big picture. For all of its shortcomings, Christianity still has a lot to offer this world.

I challenge you to name even one single redeeming feature of Islam.

Go ahead, we're waiting.

Ah, the moral relativism of the liberal at its finest. See, the thing there is, in our western Christian society, not only are we horrified by the actions of these few we rightly call criminals and various other names I can't say on this blog, we prosecute, incarcerate, and occasionally do far worse to both punish and show our utter contempt for their actions and continued existence...if their existence is continued after all that is done.

Where as in the Muslim world, what is being done to little boys is near actively encouraged on a cultural scale...of over a billion people. As it is encouraged, ergo, this is not thought to be a bad thing at all, despite the damage done, both physical and mental, to the young boys in question.

We've seen your reaoning before, and we've long since deconstructed the validity you tried to assign to said moral relativism. Try again. Try harder.

Zenster said...

Good post, David. Let's see if Leroy has the courage to respond to either of us.

Leroy said...

My comment was merely meant to put all muslim haters/islamophobics/conspiracy theorists' hateful claims in perspective. I can assure you, I am by no means a follower of Islam, or any other religion.

But I find it interesting that you really think Christianity has a lot to offer. Any examples?

Zenster said...

Leroy: But I find it interesting that you really think Christianity has a lot to offer. Any examples?.

Speaking as a devout agnostic, I am still compelled to laud Christianity's sense of compassion and its attempts to practice the Golden Rule. Christianity is also to be commended for having found the courage to abandon its theocratic aspirations and cooperate with manmade laws. What's more, even though Christianity is divided into numerous branches of faith, it has reconciled those differences and no longer resorts to bloodshed to settle its disparate interpretations.

Finally, whatever its shortcomings, Christianity certainly has a far more desirable role model to follow than Islam.

My comment was merely meant to put all muslim haters/islamophobics/conspiracy theorists' hateful claims in perspective.

What "hateful claims" would those be? Do tell.

I have answered your question, Leroy. You have yet to respond to my challenge. Please do so.

This one got really international.

I just wonder how they never looked for his reccord before accepting him in an institution for children.

Leroy--

Here's one example from a story in today's New York Times:

Sisters Face Death with Dignity and Reverence --

This story exemplifies Christian community on a number of levels.
Read the whole thing to get a sense of the commitment of these women across the breadth of their lives.

I've known well a variety of Christians, ranging from contemplative monks to families who attempt to live their lives as a reflection of their spiritual experience, to people who just warm the pews on Sundays, on down to those who show up at Christmas and Easter and the final group: those who refuse to affiliate with any church at all.

Christians are held to a higher standard than others and justly so. We reserve special contempt for those who profess its vows while violating the human beings they promised to serve. Jesus had a saying about what should happen to anyone who harmed a child. I don’t think Mohammed has a parallel quote.

An atheist pederast harms lots of kids and breaks the law of the state. A religious pederast also abuses his vows and the reputation of his community. Both are criminals. However, the latter is vastly more guilty (in the eyes of other Christians) than is the atheist. And designations like "disease" or "character disorder" don't cover it his depravity.

In my experience, there are many within the Christian religion who live the conventions, what C.S. Lewis called being "inoculated with such a mild version of the religion that they're immune to the real thing". I don’t judge them any more than I do the militant atheists. But I seldom find anything I want to emulate in personal terms.

And then there are the others. You won't recognize them because they don't talk about it. However, their lives are lived on a different plane, one that is not taken over with getting and consuming. They are anonymous on purpose.

I once met a woman who was active in the doings of a small town near us. She was a transplant, as am I. Upon soliciting her opinion of the town, she told me, with surprise in her voice, "for such a church-ridden place, it's amazingly friendly and helpful".

I didn't ask her if this town-wide involvement with church might not have something to do with the level of helpfulness she found. Nor did I point out to her the health outcomes for those who have a strong faith community.

Among human beings there is a need for purpose. Which is not to say that some purposeful communities aren’t based on a vision of destruction; Bill Ayers is a member of one. His regret is that he didn't have the chance to blow up more people. He could still do that, but he’d have to give up his tenured position.

Afonso Henriques said...

Like Homofobic Horse, I agree that him being muslim or whatever has nothing to due with it.
However he is a muslim and Britain *has been enriched*.

Concerning pedophilia I think the main problem really is people of European descent.

Actually, I have noticed that (black) Africans, who usually are prone to all kinds of crimes, very rarely engage in pedophilia.
I have known cases in which a young boy engages in such relations with too young girls, but I also have to say that those cases ususally have +13 years old "slutty" girls so that we don't know how much we can blame the man.

It's interesting to investigate if sub saharan Africans have lesser pedophilic impulses.

In medieval Europe, a 12 years old girl was already a women. Or almost.

Of course, this does not contradicts what Baron says. I just happen to think that old men with ~13 years old girls in muslim countries is not too different from medieval Europe. It will change when the average life expectancy rate increases, I believe. If you die at 40, you have to work soon to know your grand children. Not to mention that muslim societies are much more tribal - like Gypsies in Europe - and thus are more prone to this kind of things.

Damn Zenster, that was discussing.
People talk about "Mediterraneam Machism" and stuff.
I just started to believe in it because Northern Europe (especially the Scandinavian countries like Sweden) is really... "gayish" or "femininised". More Northern Europeans? Just look to New York and Los Angeles...

And actually, I think the most "machist" ones in Europes are the Slavs, especially the Russians...

But then again, what I wanted to say is that this "Mediterraneam Machism" does not exist at all. Giving that information, there's a different world in "machismity" across the Mediterranean.

I know there's also a lot of fuzz about the Greeks *but*, here in Latin Europe, there's no space to fuzz.
Arabs and to a lesser extent Berbers are really desert people man.

Zenster said...

Hey! Where did our new chew toy go?



Come back, Leroy. You still got some 'splaining to do!

Dymphna said...

Well, Zenster, obviously you played too rough and the troll ran back under the safety of the bridge.

Trolls aren't honest brokers usually. This one stated his intentions loud and clear and then he ran.

Haven't you noticed that other trolls often employ the same methods?

In real life, it's 'slash and dash'...in the ether here, it more like letting the dog out for a run and failing to go back and clean up after him.

Thus others have to step around the deposits...

Zenster said...

Dymphna: Well, Zenster, obviously you played too rough and the troll ran back under the safety of the bridge.

But... but... but... I played nice and answered his questions and everything. Heck, and I'm not even a Christian!

It was likely the, "name even one single redeeming feature of Islam", challenge that got him all fritterpated.
