As mentioned in last night’s news feed, the redoubtable Counterjihad activist David Littman died yesterday in Switzerland after a long battle with leukemia.
Mr. Littman has been eloquently eulogized by Jerry Gordon at The New English Review, and by Andy Bostom at his own website. I’m sure many more remembrances will be published in the next few days.
Vlad Tepes has compiled two video retrospectives to illustrate the enormous efforts that David Littman made at the United Nations in the thankless task of resisting the Islamization of that body.

Nine Muslim men belonging to a child-rape gang in northwestern England have received hefty prison sentences for trafficking and raping young British girls.
The three-month sexual grooming trial at a court in Liverpool, which ended on May 9, has drawn nationwide attention to the sexual abuse of children and women by Muslim immigrants, and British police are currently investigating at least 40 other cases of child rapes perpetrated by Muslims in northern England.

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.
The German anti-Islam pro-NRW movement recently made headlines with its anti-Islam media competition and demonstrations featuring both the fruits of the competition as well as the classic Danish Mohammed cartoons.
Here are the Qur'an, Hadith, and Tafsir passage cited in the video: Qur’an 9:28—O ye who believe! Truly the Pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs, approach the Sacred Mosque. And if ye fear poverty, soon will Allah enrich you, if He wills, out of His bounty, for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
