The Cult of the Dead Paedophile and the Jewel of Medina

The Jewel of Medina or a victim of child abuse. You decide.

News in earlier today from the "no real information" BBC that three men were arrested early this morning after a small fire was put out at a property in Lonsdale Square, London.

The fact that they were charged under the Terrorism Act of 2000 is enough to make one hazard a guess that these men are probably followers of the Cult of the Dead Paedophile, although the BBC does not say so.

However when one reads that the fire took place in a publishers property, it does not take much digging to find out who the intended target might have been.

Earlier this month, Gibson Square publishers, address 47 Lonsdale Square announced that they had signed a two book deal with author Sherry Jones for the rights to The Jewel of Medina and it sequel.

You might recall that this is the book that as upset the Turnips because it deals with the relationship between the Paedophile Mohammed and his child "bride" A'isha.

It should be remembered that the original publisher pulled out of a potentially mega bucks deal after possibly receiving threats.
We stand firmly by our responsibility to support our authors and the free discussion of ideas, even those that may be construed as offensive by some. However, a publisher must weigh that responsibility against others that it also bears, and in this instance we decided, after much deliberation, to postpone publication for the safety of the author, employees of Random House, booksellers and anyone else who would be involved in distribution and sale of the novel.” As reported, both parties subsequently agreed to terminate the publishing agreement.

Nine-year-old Midlands girl rescued from forced marriage
British children as young as nine are being forced into marriage by their families, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal.
The disclosure comes as official figures show that nearly 60 children aged 15 or under have been rescued by the Government's Forced Marriage Unit in the past four years.

"You don't just get forced into a marriage at 16 or 17; this is happening to very young children. We certainly have had cases of minors being sexually abused. "If you are forced into marriage as a minor you will be multiple-raped, because as a child you are legally unable to give consent. But we have no idea how many children under 16 are at risk, and this is compounded by a reluctance of schools to engage with the issue. Many schools shy away due to supposed cultural sensitivities."

The problem is particularly prevalent in Pakistani communities, where betrothing offspring to their first cousins is common practice, said Ms Sanghera.
