For Barbara Ellen at U.K Guardian: Forty six year old woman ‘had repeated sex with’ 12 year old British boy.

Barbara Ellen: “do we seriously think that a female teacher sleeping with a male pupil is on a par with a male teacher sleeping with a girl pupil? I don’t.”

A PRIVATE prep school whose matron paid a 12-year-old boy for sex with Mars bars tried to cover up the matter by not informing police at the time, a court heard.

Tiffany Carter, 46, had sex with the pupil when she got into bed with him after “lights out” while working as a junior matron at St Andrew’s Prep School in Eastbourne, the court was told.

The boy, who cannot be named, also went to her room for sex, Lewes Crown Court heard.

His mother only learned about the abuse when she got a tearful call from the teen worried that he’d caught AIDS, jurors were told.

But the school in Meads Street – which currently charges £22,000 a year for boarders – pressured the mother not to take the matter to police, she claimed.

The mother told the court: ‘We talked about taking him home, but the school was advising that we shouldn’t. The conversation suggested he would be better kept in the normal environment.

‘He wanted to stay in school as well, but it was my instinct as a mother to go and pick him up.

‘I didn’t get the name of the woman. The school wanted to keep it confidential.

‘They said it was best for it not to be expanded any further or legal proceedings taken because my son was about to go to college.

‘My husband wanted to go to the police at the time. But because she had left their school I just wanted to make sure she

no longer worked with children again. I was very upset and emotional at that time.

‘I don’t know how long the abuse went on, but it happened nearly a year before he told me. He said he went up to watch TV in the matron’s room and that seemed to me to be wrong.

‘I didn’t understand why he was in her room. This was such a long time ago. My husband and I always wanted closure for my son.’

The court heard the victim began a civil law suit against the school in 2015.

Carter, who at the time of the alleged offences was known as Tiffany Poole, was arrested in October 2014 after a solicitor acting for the

victim called Sussex Police.

A statement made by her to detectives when she was arrested was read to the court.

She said: ‘I do remember the boy. He had a crush on me. He used to give me cuddly toys. The other matrons used to tell me I had to be firmer with the boys. I never invited any boys into my room.

‘My job was to make sure the boys washed and cleaned their teeth in the morning and evenings.

‘I was never on my own with any of the boys. I don’t know why any of these allegations have been made.

‘I was not sexually active until I was with my first boyfriend at the age of 19.’

DC Phil Cracknell, of Sussex Police, said Carter looked “shocked” when he went to arrest her at her home.

Carter, of Eastbourne, denies three counts of gross indecency with a child and two charges of indecent assault of a boy aged under 14 between September 1986 and April 1987.

The trial continues.

Canadian Muslim preacher: Peace deals are ‘garbage’


A Muslim preacher in Canada delivered a scathing sermon in which he declared that peace accords with Israel are “useless garbage,” vowed that Jerusalem will be conquered through blood, and claimed that the United Nations has never passed a single resolution condemning Israel.

During a Friday sermon in Edmonton, Alberta, religious leader Imam Shaban Sherif Mady also lashed out at a broad sweep of countries and their leaders, including Russia, Iran, China, Libya and Egypt.

A video of the sermon was published on the internet May 6 and anEnglish translation of Mady’s comments was later provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“Our Jerusalem, the place of our Prophet’s nocturnal journey, will only be regained through blood,” he said.

“How can you make peace while the other side uses weapons?” Mady asked.

“Peace accords, Sykes-Picot, and all these sorts of things are useless garbage,” he said, referring to the 1916 agreement between the UK and France to divide large areas of the Middle East following the fall of the Ottoman Empire in the First World War.

“You are talking about peace, while he is killing?! You are talking about peace, while he has F-16s, tanks and rockets. So what kind of peace is this? It is ‘peace be upon you,’ my dear. Send my ‘peace’ and greetings… What peace? Why hasn’t there been even a single [UN] resolution condemning Israel, ever since its establishment? There has never been an international resolution against it.”

The UN Security Council has passed over 130 resolutions dealing with the Israeli-Arab conflict. According to the Human Rights Voices website, the UN Human Rights Council passed 45 resolutions condemning Israel between 2006-2014, almost more than the combined number of resolutions against all other countries in the world.

Mady also preached that “the Prophet Muhammad said that there would be a peace agreement between the Muslims and the Byzantines, which would be respected, and that the [Muslims] would fight another enemy. Who is this other enemy? It is Iran and its filthy lackeys and dogs, like Russia, China and those who support them, as well as the secular dogs in the Arab world, like the children of [UAE founding president] Zayed [bin Sultan Al Nahyan], and that Jewish Zionist [Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah] El-Sissi, as well as that secular traitor [Libyan leader Khalifa] Haftar, together with all these traitors.”

“They will all come to an end. Thanks to this peace agreement, they will all vanish from the face of the Earth. When? Hopefully, this will happen soon.”

In February, during another sermon, Mady predicted that Islam would soon conquer Rome, “the heart of the Christian state.”
