We have already discussed how reference to ‘Asian’ grooming gangs unfairly stigmatises non-Muslim Asian communities that do not have this specific problem. We also argued that failing to even consider that the men’s religion could have had some relevance is not helpful if we want to understand and hopefully prevent these terrible crimes from happening again.

It is with great sadness that I must report that my friend David Littman, one of the foremost warriors for human rights of our age, has died today in Switzerland.
Longtime Jihad Watch readers will recall his many reports at this site (see here -- scroll down), recording his numerous valiant efforts to call the attention of the UN's Human Rights Council to the human rights abuses arising from Islamic law.

The fight for freedom has today lost a truly great and towering giant.
David Littman spent decades working at the UN in Switzerland, trying to get people to pay attention to how Islam and Islamic law were inherently antisemitic, the Jew-hatred that is pandemic in the Islamic world, the genocidal Hamas Charter, and more.

To commemorate the recently deceased David Littman, we repost the documentary about Operation Mural. That was a clandestine effort headed by Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, to facilitate the emigration of Jewish Moroccan children to Israel. While David Littman was the unlikely secret agent at the heart of the operation, he was not even told that he was working for the Mossad back then. Watch to enjoy geuine courage in the face of evil.

A number of books published in recent years have demolished the myth of an allegedly tolerant Islamic culture that preserved the Greco-Roman heritage. Ibn Warraq’s book Why the West Is Best is among the better and more accessible titles in this field. As I concluded in one of my earlier essays, the only part of the ancient Greek heritage that proved to be more compatible with Muslim than with Christian European culture was slavery, and possibly anal sex with young boys in certain parts of the Islamic world.
