A simple majority of Western voters is still enamoured of activist government. A larger majority of Western citizens and residents still want liberal social programmes such as welfare payments and affirmative action and legislation in favor of minority groups of whatever kind (other than Europeans or middle class tax payers,) and they still feel comfortable with the idea that the West is responsible for the ill of the world generally. It makes some good sense to think that way: If we in the West are the cause of trouble in the world, then we are also responsible for fixing what we've done wrong, and we have the power and the brains and the cash to do good everywhere. What could be better than changing the world for the better? Those who do so must be special. It costs a bit, true. Yes, there are some random murders of civilian populations, but if we just do a bit more, act a little better, consume a bit less, give some more, maybe give some more, and then just give a little bit more, and maybe some more, then in time, and with our moral efforts to fix the things we've done wrong we will have created a great world of universal peace and happiness, if only we give a little bit more.
If we aren't responsible for the problems of Islamic madness, well, that would mean we'd have to stop being nice guys. If Islam is the problem, then it's not really our problem at all. We'd lose the control over fixing things that we have now. We'd have to actually fix things in a way that goes against our current position of being nice guys who are making a the whole world a better place. Yes, if we regard Islam as a problem we'd have to do something drastic about Islam itself rather than do some cool social work for the benefit of the poor. We'd have to do some serious fighting, violent things, and we could get hurt, and our home entertainment systems might get damaged. But worse, our self-esteem would suffer. We wouldn't be pretty any more. We'd be mean and nasty and right wing religious bigots. To make it all intolerable, we might have to admit that the Yankees were right after all. That's a big lump to like. And then there's the Israelis! How can we change course without looking like total fools? Uh oh. Let's give a little more and maybe this will all suddenly go away. Just a little more. And a little more. Let's hope the yobs won't make it worse. Yeah, let's blame them. We'll call them drunken racists. Then we can go on being nice and not have to do anything about Islam at all. Aren't we pretty? We're not yobs. It ain't our fault. Let's pose. Let's dialogue with Others.

Australia: Gang rapist claims right to assault
Well, you see, she wasn't wearing a headscarf. From the Sydney Morning Herald, with thanks to Dan:
THE eldest of four Pakistani gang rapist brothers has admitted lying at trial and apologised to his victims but said he thought he had a right to rape the "promiscuous" teenage girls....
During a long apology to TW, who was in court, he stopped mid-sentence to reprimand her.
"I wish to say this to [TW], that at the time when I commit these offences I come from such a background which led me to - don't shake your head, I'm telling you something - I say now that I hurt you and I'm extremely, extremely apologetic to you and I'm, I wish to say one thing more.
The Sydney gang rapes were a series of five separate crimes involving rape which occurred in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The first four occurred in the southern hemisphere winter of 2000, and the fifth in 2002. The common thread in these cases was that the perpetrators were gangs of young males of Muslim background (Lebanese in the first four cases, Pakistanis in the fifth), while the victims were females of European descent. The perpetrators were alleged to have made racist comments against their victims in the course of the offences, leading some to categorise them as hate crimes. During the trial of one of the offenders, Bilal Skaf, text messages sent on his mobile phone were disclosed, containing sentiments such as "When you are feeling down ... bash a Christian or Catholic and lift up".
The separate gang rapes were, in chronological order:
August 10, 2000 - Two females aged 17 and 18 accepted a lift from Chatswood, lured by the offer of marijuana. They were taken to Northcote Park, Greenacre, where they were forced to perform oral sex on eight males.
August 12, 2000 - Another victim was raped at gunpoint by two males at Gosling Park, Greenacre, having been lured there by one of the rapists, who was an acquaintance. She escaped before she could be raped by another twelve males waiting their turn.
August 30, 2000 - A woman, named C at the trial (she later revealed her identity on the 60 Minutes television program) was lured from a train at Bankstown by the promise of marijuana. She was then raped at three separate locations by 14 males over a period of six hours. As a final humiliation they hosed her down with water. The teenager raped on August 30 was called an "Aussie pig", told she would be raped "Leb-style" and asked "does Leb cock taste better than Aussie cock?" by three of her assailants
September 4, 2000 - Two 16 year old females were lured from Beverly Hills train station to a house in Lakemba, were they were raped by three males over a period of four hours.
July 28, 2002 - Five males, four of whom were brothers, lured, threatened with knives and bullets and sexually assaulted two girls, aged 16 and 17, at one of the brothers' houses in Ashfield. One of the victims was told that the other had been killed because she had resisted orders. The rapists have had their names suppressed and in news reports have only been referred to as MMK, MRK, MSK, MAK and RS.
Bilal Skaf, sentenced to 55 yearsOther rapes were attempted, but were not carried out. The West Australian ("Reign of terror by mobile phone and the promise of a smoke", July 31, 2002) reports that a 14-year old girl was approached by four males on a train on August 4, 2000, but she escaped before she could be harmed. One of the attackers was quoted as saying on his mobile phone, "I've got a slut with me bro, come to Punchbowl
The Paris riots a few weeks back, the rioters burnt factories, schools and churches, and the rioters where poor misunderstood muslims, victims of Blah Blah blah.
YET EVERY BODY OVERLOOKS THE RAPES AND OTHER CRIMES THAT ARE COMMITTED BY THESE POOP MISUNDERSTOOD MUSLIMS IN FRANCE PRIOR TO THE RIOTS,NOBODY WANTS TO LOOK AT THAT,IT MAY OFFEND THE MUSLIMS.
BUT WHEN INFIDELS CAN NOT TOLERATE THE SHIT THAT MUSLIMS CREATE AND GIVE A LITTLE PAY, WOW, WE SEE THE MSM SCREAMING RACISTS--THUGS, AND LIKEWISE.
THE CAUSE OF THESE RIOT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RACISM, IT IS PEOPLE WHO ARE GETTING SICK OF HOW MOSLEMS BEHAVE, IT IS PEOPLE WHO ARE LOSING THEIR TOLERANCE. NO, THE MSM AND GOVERMENTS TURN A BLIND SO AS NOT OFFEND THE MUSLIMS.
AND IF GOVERMENTS AND THE MSM KEEP ON BEING BLIND TO THE ISLAMIC ISSUE, THEN WE ARE GOING TOO SEE MORE OF WHAT HAS JUST HAPPENED. THE GOVERMENTS MUST ACT, AND THE MSM SHOULD STOP BULLSHITTING US THAT ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE. MUSLIMS DO NOT WANT TO LIVE PEACEFULLY WITH INFIDELS.
This we can see by their reaction to the Cronulla Beach incident.
A group later made its way back to Cronulla for a retaliatory strike, where men of Middle Eastern appearance are reported to have bashed a local man unconscious.
A 23-year-old man was injured and more than 40 cars were smashed with baseball bats during violent scenes in Maroubra, in Sydney's east, overnight.
A group of about 60 men of Middle Eastern appearance and armed with baseball bats smashed about 40 parked cars at about 9 pm (AEDT) Sunday night.
The group then clashed with a local group, the Bra Boys, outside the Maroubra Bay Hotel.
A 23-year-old Maroubra man was taken to Prince of Wales hospital after he was stabbed with a sharp implement, believed to be a stick or nail, in the hip.
The windscreen of a police vehicle was smashed when police attempted to restore order.
Two police vehicles sustained minor panel damage, but no officers were injured.
Police established a roadblock to prevent more people from entering the suburb
