Women in at least six countries across Europe are paying the price for their leaders’ decision to welcome millions of migrants from cultures deeply hostile to Western values.
A wave of sexual assaults in Cologne, Germany, on New Year’s Eve – and the media cover-up that followed – enraged local citizens. The backlash grew as it became apparent that similar attacks happened in Bielefeld, Duesseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Stuttgart.
Over 100 sexual assaults and robberies were perpetrated by Arab and North African migrants last Friday in Cologne, but Germany is not alone.
The list of countries that have reported a spike in sexual attacks since taking in migrants include:
- Austria: Police allegedly tried to cover up evidence of sex attacks in Vienna, Breitbart London reported Friday.
- Finland: Police told Agence-France Presse there was “widespread sexual harassment” at a New Year’s Eve event where 1,000 asylum seekers congregated.
- France: Two Afghan migrants were arrested in connection with an attempted rape on a passenger train in Paris, Le Parisien reported Thursday.
- Germany: A police officer in Cologne told Express.de on Thursday that 14 suspects in custody came from Syria; one came from Afghanistan.
- Sweden: At least nine women were groped by gangs of migrants in Kalmar.
- Switzerland: Six women said they were sexually harassed at a New Year’s Eve event in Zurich, SWI reported Thursday. The attacks were described by the website as “Cologne-style.”
“The idea of multicultural Europe has failed,” Robert Fico, the prime minister of Slovakia, said on Friday, the Telegraph reported. “The migrants cannot be integrated; it’s simply impossible.”
Fico said there was a “clear link” between the sex attacks and the influx of refugees to European nations.
Finnish police echoed what their counterparts in Germany said about crime taking on a wholly different dimension with the arrival of refugees.
“There hasn’t been this kind of harassment on previous New Year’s Eves or other occasions for that matter. This is a completely new phenomenon in Helsinki,” Ilkka Koskimaki, the city’s deputy police chief, told AFP. “The suspects were asylum seekers. The three were caught and taken into custody on the spot.”
Gunnar Norgren, a police officer in Kalmar, Sweden, had an identical assessment when asked about teenage sex-attack victims in his city.
“We have not really had this phenomenon before. Had it been a single report, someone being groped on the dance floor, then yes, they’ve happened, naturally. But … this is something new,” Norgren said, Expressen reported Wednesday.
Terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel told WND and Radio America on Friday that Europe’s crisis is a harbinger of America’s future if it follows German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s lead. Germany ushered in 1.1 million migrants from the Middle East and North Africa in 2015.
“This is a preview as to what’s coming into our own nation in the United States, once we start bringing and importing these refugees,” said Gabriel.
“House of War: Islam’s Jihad Against the World” conveys what the West needs to know about Islam and the violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures and systems of government
Gabriel, a victim of terrorism in Lebanon years ago, is founder of Act for America and author of “They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.”
“Remember, these refugees are coming from societies that have no respect for women,” she said. “They treat women as property. They treat women as a subject to be used and abused. Men abuse their wives, beat their wives, rape their wives.”
Gabriel continued, “In Islamic countries, there is no such thing as rape because the Quran gives the right to a man to do whatever he wants to his wife because she is his property.”
She said the West is seeing those attitudes clash severely with Western values.
“What we are seeing in Europe is the importation of a culture that is completely opposed to everything we stand for and believe in,” Gabriel said. “It’s a completely different way of thinking. So when these refugees are looking at German women or Finnish women – or any lady – as something to be used, especially if they are infidel women.”
Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with Brigitte Gabriel:
Gabriel said the clash of cultures is getting far worse because European nations did not insist on Muslim assimilation decades ago.
“Europe didn’t make them assimilate,” she said. “They said, ‘OK, we understand. You’re different than we are. We understand that as long as you live in your neighborhoods and your areas, do whatever you want, your own things, your own Shariah courts. We don’t really care as long as you give us cheap labor.’
“This philosophy is coming back to bite Europe because the Europeans did not pay attention as to how Muslims were not integrating into European societies for the last 20-30 years,” Gabriel said.
She also said this nightmare is coming to the U.S.
“This is a preview of what is coming to any country or society that imports Islamic refugees who come from the Middle East or any other Islamic country,” Gabriel warned.
She said the first thing Western nations must do is enforce their laws.
“We can fight back democratically by enforcing our laws and saying we cannot allow refugees here,” Gabriel said. “We do not know who they are. We cannot vet them. We have no intelligence about them.”
German elites are responding to the wave of sexual assaults by Arabic and North African migrants on New Year’s Eve by cracking down on alleged hate speech on Facebook, Google and Twitter.
Politicians are worried that an environment eerily similar to the 1920s and the rise of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party in the 1920s is forming.
Julia Kloeckner, the head of Merkel’s CDU party in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, called the attacks a wake-up call on Friday.
“I think we really need to take off the blinkers,” she said, the Telegraph reported.
