Muslims and sex crimes in London
Sir Henry Morgan whom we first visited for his study of the Religion of Peace figures on worldwide terror attacks since 9/11, is back with a study correlating London police sex crime statistics with census figures on the percentage of Muslim inhabitants in London boroughs. While there is some roughness around the edges of his study, I think it is clear that there is some correlation between the presence of a significant number (5-10 percent) of Muslims and sex crimes.
I wonder if this reflects primarily a Pakistani-Muslim phenomenon in London or a more generally Muslim one. Probably the latter: Sir Henry’s findings are not surprising given the reporting by Fjordman and others on Muslim rape in Western cities; in any case, Sir Henry provides some interesting charts and readable commentary to add to the picture that is developing. I do not believe this sex criminality can be explained as simply a product of social backwardness or racism – the difference between the behaviour and success of Hindus and Sikhs and Muslims in Britain is widely noted; while backwardness and resistance to modernity surely plays a role (in which religion is both a cause and effect) this is a reflection of a monotheism modelled on the revelation and practices of Mohammed. Islam needs to change how it interprets itself, or be gone from Western cities.
