Another inflammatory anti-Muslim headline in the Mail

Another inflammatory anti-Muslim headline in the Mail

That’s the headline to an article in today’s Daily Mail, reporting on the conviction of a group of men for abducting, assaulting and raping two girls, aged 15 and 16.

The article quotes one of the convicted men as claiming that sex with the two girls was consensual: “It was Eid. We treated them as our guests. OK, so they gave us [sex] but we were buying them food and drink.”

And that single quote is the sole the basis for an inflammatory headline that plays to the poisonous far-right racist myth that Muslims are directed by their faith to sexually molest young girls.

It’s worth noting that the report is written by Katherine Faulkner, who last year co-authored the equally irresponsible and misleading report of a drunken assault in Leicester, which led to an EDL protest against so-called “anti-white racism” in the town.

It is no accident that the Mail was one of Anders Breivik’s favourite English-language newspapers. It is cited numerous times in the manifesto he published to justify his terrorist killings and an article by Melanie Phillips is reproduced in its entirety.

  3. Absolutely wrong headline! No part of Eid has anything remotely close to that vial , disgusting act!

  4. Hey Daily Mail, what about one big cup of shut the fuck up?

  5. There is very little difference between this kind of squalid journalism and a famous 13th Century tapestry depicting the Saracens with horns and tails, except that the tapestry happens to be beautiful in its propagandistic way.

  7. WHAT THE… Those editors are such hateful, racist [fatherless sons], this kind of media abuse is what fuels hatred on so many levels.

  8. Well either it’s true or it’s not…

  9. if they had been any other religion this wouldnt have been published im sure

  10. Because they did…..

  11. Its not even eid? wtf?

  12. how many mikes are allowed here?

    Mike3 – the article is about their convictions. in western countries it can take many months to go to trial, this event could have even happened during the 2010 eid.

  13. No surprise that liberals make excuses for criminals again. They defended the four Somali bitches who beat up Rhea Page.

  14. Squalid journalism? The crime was squalid. Also squalid was the mob of supporters who showed up in court to cheer on the criminals. Sure it makes muslims look bad.
