Who could it be now?

Mothers of prevention

Schoolgirls in Lancashire and Yorkshire are falling prey to sinister gangs of pimps. Two men have been sent to jail, but the girls’ mothers, not the police, are at the forefront of the crackdown. Why are the authorities so reluctant to get involved?

Now why would that be I ask?

At the crown court in Preston on August 10, a trial involving two Asian men caused unusual interest across a number of cities in the north of England. The defendants, Zulfqar Hussain and Qaiser Naveed, were each sentenced to five years and eight months for abduction, sexual activity with a child, and the supply of a controlled drug.

it get better

the groups of men who had been preying on young, vulnerable girls and ensnaring them into prostitution.

It was a very uncomfortable scenario, not least because many of these crimes had an identifiable racial element: the gangs were Asian and the girls were white. The authorities, in the shape of politicians and the police, seemed reluctant to acknowledge this aspect of the crimes; it has been left to the mothers of the victims to speak out.

Notice that the Russians just like the Arabs have their media arms in place

Russia to Launch 24-Hour Spanish TV Satellite Channel in Addition to Existing English and Arabic

What about the Chinese? does anyone know?

Well, looks like dhimmitude is not just a feature of ours, the original seed sower, the Limeys are getting paid...
Look how the government is 'reluctant' to force case on 'Asians', clearly Pakis...
Londonistan.... welcome...

Regarding Russian news channel...
Well, when the yanks can have it (CNN), Limeys can have it (BBC - its Paki too), as somebody mentioned, Arabs can have it, and even French can have why not Russians, afterall, they too need to counter the trash shown by CNN and BBC and others.
Regarding China, well, we have Chindu (The Hindu) and other leftist papers... extensively quoting from Xinhua....

Also, it was nice to see the SC saving the day and giving hope to the citizens...
As said in the blog... UPA wouldnt dare remove support and will bypass the court's order...

The website www.socialcause.org has some lovely articles... nice website...

Hi Ram supporters,

Please read this article published by FRONT LINE Magazine (5th Oct 2007)

and this excerpt from 'china's national magazine' proves exactly what? that there is a communist-mohammedan axis? that's old news, we have known it forever.

trotting out kn panikkar and suchlike -- what do you expect them to say other than this sort of crap?

note how the communists insist on calling it adam's bridge, after acknowledging that it is a nod to mohammedan mythology.

a biased source (and frontline is about as biased as they come because it is sustained entirely by chinese money: the only people who actually read it are the faculty of jnu) is not get anybody brownie points.

the interview with the navy man that i posted earlier, where he points out that this thing is a complete waste of money because nobody is going to use it -- a POV from a a person who actually has been a sailor for years -- is far more convincing about the sheer economic futility of this crazy project. it is a wet dream of stealth-christist t r baalu to show how 'dravidian'/christist imperialists can do anything they want to hindu sentiment.
