Resolved Question: Why doesn't Jack Straw
Jack Straw is of course Jewish. He recently declared that Pakistani men see white girls as easy meat. Why won;t he speak out in the same vein against Jewish people carrying out this trade.
Amnesty International charged.
"Many women have been subjected to human rights abuses such as enslavement or torture, including rape and other forms of sexual abuse, by traffickers, pimps, or others in Israel’s sex industry"
Amnesty International also criticized Israel for not providing a procedure to grant asylum to women who have been smuggled into the country often on the basis of false promises of work having nothing to do with sex. According to Amnesty International, hundreds of women are brought to Israel from the former Soviet Union every year. From luring or kidnapping women and forcing them to work in Israeli brothels, to being major players in the slave trade. .
Jewish historian Edward Bristow, in his book Prostitution and Prejudice: the Jewish Fight against White Slavery, says:
"Jews rooted largely in Eastern and Central Europe dominated the international traffic out of the area"
NO, I am not condoning what SOME Muslim men have done, I simply do not like hypocrisy and wonder why Jack Straw does not make similar statements about the trade where European women are being sold into sex slavery into Israel - a country he admires? Poppy - I am well aware that Straw is British and he is also an admirer of Israel, a country he has a right to go and live in by virtue of his Jewishness. I am more concerned about a trade involving thousands of European women but evidently people are more concerned here with justifying Straw's statement and avoiding the issue ... which is always the way when other ethncities' flaws are pointed out. Poppy - You say not all Israelis are Jewish - so you are saying that Palestinians have the finance and means to traffick in human flesh! amnesty mentions Jews not christians or Palestinians. Gosh... anything not to blame those who cannot be mentioned! Stacey - Yes truth is always antisemtic to you people!

Resolved Question: What do you think of Jack
I don't personally like the man, but I admire his courage in stating what we all know that these gangs of Asians youths are grooming young white girls for sex as they see them as meat. I am disgusted with the comments that Keith Vaz made, but would we expect any different from him?.

How do you find this kind of information? Does anyone know whether there was a fire at Hampstead Heath, at or near Jack Straw's? Or where can I find records of anything like this happening? It would have been over fifty years ago - maybe more like a hundred or more.
