Is it unreasonable to make a connection between the rape of 1,400 girls in Rotherham and the desire of Muslim men to join in jihad

Lisa Markwell (The Independent), reviewing the newspapers on BBC News 24 this morning, said "it's happening all over the country" when asked about the Rotherham rape gangs.

This is I'm afraid a rather too glib dismissal of what has emerged.

I do not doubt that rape happens all over the country - and these crimes must be prosecuted with all the force of the law.

But what has happened in Rotherham, Rochdale, Derby and elsewhere has been the specific identification of Muslim rape gangs.

Which inevitably leads one to ask whether the rape of white girls is a manifestation of internal jihad by Muslim communities in the United Kingdom.

We know that large numbers of Muslim men are so motivated by the idea of jihad that they travel overseas to take part in it.

We know that ISIS jihadis in Iraq and Syria have taken part in beheadings and rapes as an expression of their jihad.

We know that Muslims carried out an attempted beheading in Woolwich in 2013 in the name of jihad.

We know that Muslim gangs have raped women and children in Rotherham and elsewhere.

Is it unreasonable to make a connection between the rape of 1,400 girls in Rotherham and the desire of Muslim men to join in jihad against the United Kingdom?

I'm sorry if this suspicion offends liberal sensitivities, but we are not going to solve the problem until we understand it thoroughly, and that means asking uncomfortable questions.
