Foolish people believe its not happening DownUnder, but the “grooming” of underage children is already in full swing. Why should Muselmaniacs behave differently in Australia, when they managed to turn thousands of British children into sex slaves?
“Younger kids are being placed with older kids who are grooming them for sexual activity and introducing them to drugs and alcohol. We are being forced to put kids at extreme risk.”

Veteran child protection workers have told theÂ Herald SunÂ they are powerless to protect the children in their care and that the sexual exploitation of state wards is “endemic”.
Just in from a concerned citizen:
I turned on my ABC radio on Wednesday morning to be greeted by a news story revealing that organised gangs of men are targeting children in state care in Victoria for sexual abuse, sexually exploiting children in out-of-home care and enticing them into trading sex for money, drugs and alcohol. There was no mention about who comprised these gangs – the reportage concentrated solely on the victims and the inadequacy of the child protection authorities.
Later that day I referred to other media reports which indicated that these gangs principally comprisedÂ Afghani men. Victoria Police has set up a taskforce to investigate a gang of Afghani men in Dandenong suspected of preying on teens in care. In particular senior child protection workers have told theÂ Herald SunÂ that the gang has sexually abused girls in care in Dandenong, Shepparton and Melbourne’s west.
The way in which the ABC and SBS had obfuscated the fact that Muslims have featured in these grooming gangs illustrates the blind political correctness that we repeatedly witness from these media channels. They are so concerned not to taint the holy multicultural image of a unified Australia.
Last weekend in Melbourne the SION conference took place, the first international symposium on Islam and Liberty in Australia. The international speakers who came included Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller who have been banned from entering Britain, where they had wanted to lay a wreath at the graveside of Lee Rigby, who was hacked to death by Islamic terrorists of Nigerian descent, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, as they are referred to by the mainstream media. This is despite the fact that these criminals prefer to be addressed by their Muslim names Mujaahid Abu Hamza and Ismail ibn Abdullah.
Once again this demonstrates a pervasive attitude of political correctness whereby any associating of these events with Islamic references or allusions are deliberately minimised. The agenda here is supposedly to prevent the spread of Islamophobia. As Mohammad Tabbaa from the Islamic Council of Victoria said on SBS about those speaking at the SION symposium in Melbourne, “Their claims are not made with any context, with any understanding of the religion, its guidelines and its teachings. It’s really just plucked out for their sensationalist value. We worry that this will increase the likelihood of attacks and violence against Muslims.”
Contrary to Tabbaa’s rote assertions the SION conference provided a unique opportunity for attendees to get better informed about Islam and the social and political impact of it on our society from a collection of experts in the field, including ex-Muslims. In particular there was guest speaker Nonie Darwish, who is the daughter of an Egyptian Army lieutenant general, who was hailed as a “shahid” by the Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser, after being targeted by the Israeli Defense Forces in 1956. Darwish blames “the Middle Eastern Islamic culture and the propaganda of hatred taught to children from birth” for his death.
At the SION conference a British lawyer Gavin Boby spoke about Muslim gangs akin to the ones which we have been alerted to in Melbourne. A thoroughly comprehensive report on Britain’s grooming gangs, titled ‘“Easy Meat” – Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery’ is available at his ‘Law and Freedom’ website. It examines in detail:
- What such gangs Â do
- The chronology of the problem
- Institutional failure and the abuse of the narrative of racism
- The Islamic cultural background
- The scale of the problem
It states that 20 years ago in Britain child-care professionals dealing with the victims made recommendations which could have protected the schoolgirl victims, but these steps have never been implemented. His report has established that Muslims comprise 89% of the offenders, although Muslims make up only 5% of the population. Hence Muslims are 154 times likelier to be perpetrators of these crimes than non-Muslims. Moreover the victims are non-Muslim girls who are predominately white.
Child abuse and abuse of women is common in Afghanistan and this includes trafficking, violence, rape etc. Statistics related to child abuse in Afghanistan are very revealing. There should be more information provided through our media as to who are the perpetrators in these gangs and what action the police are taking. Â Child abuse is common here and it is not limited to any one section of the community, but the evidence strongly suggests that the child protection unit needs to especially monitor and protect our children from the Â immigrants/refugees coming from war ravaged Islamic countries.
Here in Australia we are not immune from the sort of problems that are widely manifest in Britain. Signs that such grooming practices are appearing from within our Muslim communities in Australia are very alarming. If we continue to shove all of these issues related to Islam under the carpet we will potentially face the same deterioration to the very fabric of our society and its values that is endemic in Britain and across much of Europe.

It’s Afghani Muslims from Dandenong, Shepparton and the western suburbs of Melbourne.
Paedophile gangs targeting children in state care in Victoria for sexual abuse
UpdatedÂ Wed 12 Mar 2014,
Organised gangs of men are sexually exploiting children in out-of-home care and enticing them into trading sex for money, drugs and alcohol.
An ABC investigation has found children as young as 12 are being exploited by the men.
Some of the children have been transported between towns and even interstate, while the ABC has also been told that some abuse has been filmed by paedophiles.
It is understood that police have identified between 30 and 40 children who are living in Department of Human Services residential care that may have been exploited in this fashion in the past 18 months, but the number could be higher.
The suburbs around Dandenong are believed to be an area of particular concern to police and the department.
Police have found it difficult to charge the perpetrators, as the victims, many of whom come from traumatic backgrounds, are reluctant to give statements implicating their abusers whether through fear, a mistrust of authority or a belief that they are not actually being abused.
The Department of Human Services and Victoria Police have spent two years working on a new approach to tackling the issue, which revolves around better sharing of information and educating workers on how to recognise the signs of sexual exploitation.
Police are also practising disruptive policing.
This can mean charging the abusers with drug or property offences to bring them into the criminal justice system and keep them away from their victims.
Staff from the department have also been embedded in the police sex crimes unit.
“What we would say is that these young people are not competent to make aÂ decision, and using that word ‘prostitution’ implies that they are making a lifestyle choice, working in the sex industry,” the department’s chief practitioner, Robyn Miller, told the ABC.
“They are children, they are young people, they have this history of trauma. They are not competent to make that decision.
“It is abuse and we name it that and we have a zero tolerance.
“Our wholeÂ approachÂ has been to raiseÂ consciousnessÂ within police and with carers that this is not adolescent behaviour, it is not experimentation, it is sexual exploitation and it is a form of abuse.”
Men would choose a girl to have sex with
In one case that did go to court, a number of men in Shepparton were charged with child sex and prostitution offences after having sex with girls in return for cigarettes, cash and shopping trips.
At the plea hearing of the ringleader, Emran Dad, in 2012, the court heard that he gave a 13-year-old girl a pack of cigarettes in exchange for sex.
Another girl, 16, said Dad would contact her via Facebook, then drive her to the house of a friend of his.
The girl said other girls were at the house and that men would then turn up and choose a girl to have sex with.
She said they would be paid about $200 each time this happened, depending on the sex acts they would perform.
She said Dad would receive a separate $150 payment for organising it.
“The young people that we work with have experienced such loss and grief and pain that they are really vulnerable to people giving them attention, and these offenders are expert manipulators,” Ms Miller said.
“They are disgusting in the way that they entrap our young people, so they will use social media in an expert way and will befriend, so it’s like they will pretend to be something they are not.”
In a statement, Victoria Police said there had been a number of successful prosecutions for exploitation offences of this nature and that there were ongoing investigations.
Calls for ‘thorough inquiry’ into exploitation
The State Opposition’s Jenny Mikakos says there must be an investigation.
“There needs to be a thorough inquiry into how this has happened,” she said.
But Community Services Minister Mary Wooldridge says the exploitation precedes the current Government.
“It’s only the Coalition Government that has responded comprehensively,” she said.
She says 2,000 police, child protection and care workers have been trained disrupt the exploitation of children.
Bernie Geary, the commissioner for children and young people in Victoria, says while he is not aware of these specific cases, he knows the system is “open to abuse”.
“I know that our system is far from perfect and when children who are not properly assessed have tumbled into living in situations and bringing their own pain and trauma with them, sometimes that impacts on each other,” he told AM.
“The children can be assaultive towards each other or sometimes they can be assaulted by people outside.
“The [incidents] that we’re talking about is something that hasn’t come before me and I’m really interested to know more about it.
“I intend to make very strong inquiries of the department and get information as to that.”
