New Year’s Eve Migrant Rape Crisis

It was reported that hundreds or up to 1,200 German women were sexually assaulted during New Years Eve celebrations of 2015/2016 in the cities Hamburg, Bielefeld, Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Koln, Frankfurt and Stuttgard (1) by an estimated 2,000 men (2) mostly who were, according to the German police, men of “Arab or North African appearance.” (3) Nothing like this had happened before on such a huge scale. (4) More specifically, according to chief prosecutor Ulrich Bremer said that “the overwhelming majority” of the suspects were migrants; illegal immigrants and refugees though some of the media denied this. (5)

Also, and this is very important, according to the German people themselves, the police only report or release information on a small fraction of cases. (6)

We emphasise that this is only a fraction of the actual attacks, since the police not to all cases, a press releases. In Vienna, for example, a study was conducted with the result that more than 200.000 less than 2.000 press releases. To 647 of reported rapes, there were only 15 Pressemeitteilungen.” (7)

In contradiction to what the Minister of the Interior Ralf Jager tried to claim (Spiegel, 11 Jan, 2016), the perpetrators used social media to plan the gang rapes (8), called taharrush gamea in Arabic – yes, it’s a thing and it has a name (9) and, as I will show you later, it’s permitted in Islam, right out of the Quran.

Many news outlets would not report on this until after a public backlash (10) The mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker, blamed the victims, drawing harsh criticism from the German public. (11) She also said that it was, “completely improper” to say that the perpetrators were refugees. (12)

Speaking of denial and betrayal of the German people, Interior Minister of North Rhine-Westphaliaster Jäger said, “We will not accept that groups of North African men gather expressly for the purpose of debasing women by sexually assaulting them.” (13) and he had the callousness to say that, “What happens on the right-wing platforms and in chat rooms is at least as awful as the acts of those assaulting the women … This is poisoning the climate of our society.” (14)

The German people took it upon themselves to compile a map of crimes committed by the migrants and refugees which you can see here. The purple markers represent sexual assault and the red markers represent attacks of children including sexual assaults. Oh and black represents murder or attempted murder. (15) As you can see, there are some incidents recorded for Italy, Austria and Switzerland and sexual assaults on New Years Eve were also reported in Finland, Austria and Switzerland (16) and in multiple cities in Sweden (17)

In Helsinki, Finland, there were reports of “widespread sexual harassment”. (18) The Deputy Chief of police in Helsinki announced that, “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.” (19) but the National Bureau of Investigation tried to deny that the sexual assaults in Helsinki were planned beforehand on social media as they were for other cities in Europe.
