Daily Mail Continues to Publish Inflammatory Headlines

Daily Mail Eid rape headline

The above was a recent headline in the Daily Mail. One wonders if the Daily Mail would ever run an article titled, “Christian gang kidnaps and rapes two girls as part of their Christmas celebration?”

The wholesale misattribution of the criminal conduct of these men to Islam fits a long pattern of Islamophobic reporting at the Daily Mail.

Bob Pitt of Islamophobia-Watch breaks it down below :

Another inflammatory anti-Muslim headline in the Mail

That’s the headline to an article in today’s Daily Mail, reporting on the conviction of a group of men for abducting, assaulting and raping two girls, aged 15 and 16.

The article quotes one of the convicted men as claiming that sex with the two girls was consensual: “It was Eid. We treated them as our guests. OK, so they gave us [sex] but we were buying them food and drink.”

And that single quote is the sole the basis for an inflammatory headline that plays to the poisonous far-right racist myth that Muslims are directed by their faith to sexually molest young girls.

It’s worth noting that the report is written by Katherine Faulkner, who last year co-authored the equally irresponsible and misleading report of a drunken assault in Leicester, which led to an EDL protest against so-called “anti-white racism” in the town.

It is no accident that the Mail was one of Anders Breivik’s favourite English-language newspapers. It is cited numerous times in the manifesto he published to justify his terrorist killings and an article by Melanie Phillips is reproduced in its entirety.

    As far as the Daily Mail is concerned, that proves my prior assertion that, in what we can now call the Breivik mindset, Jews and Muslims have always constituted an interchangeable “other”.

    Churchill should have been Prime Minister four years earlier than he was, while his last term should not have been at all. I am satisfied that if he had been so serving when Chamberlain was, Hitler would have been contained and likely deposed, perhaps before Austria, and surely before Czechoslovakia. His methods, however, were too heavy-handed for a post-war world. Nonetheless, I find no support for your charge of having caused the genocide of twenty-nine million residents of greater India (since I assume you are including the Raj territories of Pakistan and Bangladesh, as well)

    Churchill hated the Daily Mail , never forgave them for supporting Hitler. Churchill was many things both good And Bad but i doubt the term fascist is appropriate.

  • Abdul-Rahman

    European fascist pigs (just like their “hero” Winston Churchill who committed genocide against over 29 million Indians).

    The same news paper that supported Hitler in the 1930’s

    It’s now officially worse than Fox News.

    They call it “The Daily Fail” for a reason.
