* The rape of infidel women is legitimized, glorified and not punishable under ‘Islamic law’, the sharia. Infidel women are considered ‘war booty’. The prophet of Islam did it all the time and incited his companions to do likewise. Jessica Loiterton, the Daily Telegraph reporter, willfully ignores this, either because she is unawares or is overly eager to avoid it because of political correctness.
* Instead, she abbreviates his name with ‘Md’- but Muhammad Kowsar Ali is certainly no Medical Doctor.
Taxi Jihad in Australia:
Not letting taxi driver Md Kowsar Ali off sexual attack

Fighter … Jessica Loiterton after her attacter, taxi driver Md Kowsar Ali, was convicted.
IT’S the worst thing you can imagine happening to a girl catching a cab alone, late at night – and it happened to me. Last November, when I was 18, I was raped by the taxi driver I had trusted to take me home.
I thought I was doing the safe, responsible thing. I wasn’t hitchhiking, or drink-driving, or walking on my own. Everyone has a right to expect that when you catch a cab, the driver will do his job and take you home. But I didn’t get home that night – and what that driver did to me is unforgivable.
On November 3 last year, I was out at the Flinders Hotel in Darlinghurst with a friend. I’d been drinking vodka and orange and by midnight I wasn’t feeling the best, so I told my friend I wanted to go home. The plan had been that she would come with me, but her other friends persuaded her to stay so she gave me $70 for the fare and hailed me a taxi.
Md Kowsar Ali was the cab driver. I asked him to take me to Oyster Bay. Right away I felt a bit unsafe because he was driving really fast. We hadn’t gone far before he ran into the back of a car stopped in traffic – and kept the meter running while he swapped details with the driver.
When we got back into the cab, he took his hand off the steering wheel and tried to hold my hand. I pulled away and thought he got the message that I didn’t want him to touch me.
I drifted off to sleep and when I woke up, he was kissing my arm as we were stopped at a red light. I moved away but he kept trying to hold my hand. I continually told him: “Please, I just want to go home.”
When he stopped at traffic lights, he reached over and put his hand down my top to feel my breast. I told him to stop and insisted that I just wanted to go home. I wasn’t in any state to jump out of the cab. I shouldn’t have to. And besides, I had no idea where we were.
I dozed off again and when I woke up, the driver had pulled over in a sidestreet and was kneeling on the seat. He shoved me through the gap between the front and back seats and attacked me, pinning my arm down.
I tried to push him off but he was too heavy and there was nothing I could do. I was screaming at him, “No, don’t! Stop!” but he just kept doing it. I was terrified and bawling my eyes out.
When he raped me, he didn’t use a condom. Afterwards, he took off his shirt and wiped me down. Before I even got out of the cab, I called triple-0 on my mobile. It was a shock to hear that call when they played it in the courtroom – I was just so panicked and frightened.
One of the worst things was that he was still coming after me, chasing me. I was half-undressed but all I could think of was getting away from him – I was running for my life.
As soon as I heard the sirens and saw the police, I ran into the middle of the highway and nearly got hit. I’d seen help and was going straight for it. I told them I’d just been raped in the back of a taxi.
It was really tough going to court. I was trying to forget what happened, and having to relive it all at the trial dragged it up again. But at the same time, there was no way I was going to let him get away with what he did. What if he was still on the streets, and it happened to somebody else who got into his cab?
This shouldn’t happen to anyone. But in a way, I’m glad it was me and not someone else, because not everyone could come forward and report it and see it through to court. I’m sure there are other victims out there who aren’t going to say anything; it happens to a lot of girls and they don’t tell anybody.
I guess the driver thought I was an easy target. I was a young female, drunk and alone, and he took advantage of me. But he definitely picked the wrong girl.
I wasn’t going to give up. I’d seen it through this far, I was going to see it through to the end. I didn’t do anything wrong and I wanted to win, to prove it could be done. And I won – he’s convicted and he can’t hurt anyone else.
My friends and I are much more cautious now about catching taxis alone. Whenever I see other girls catching cabs, I feel like going up to them and saying, “Please don’t get into that cab – I’ll drive you home.”
If it happened to me, it could happen to anyone. I think there should be stricter rules screening anyone who wants to drive cabs. The technology should also be changed so that the taxi’s security camera cannot be turned off, as it was in Ali’s cab while he attacked me.
Authorities are worried about taxi driver safety but it’s not just drivers who need protection, it’s their passengers. Nobody should have to go through what I went through – and everybody should feel safe when catching a cab.
