Europe finally waking up to the reality of Islamic sexual predation?

Thomas Lifson writes:

Despite intense official efforts at denial, the European public is beginning to understand that widespread sexual assault and rape are the corollary of mass immigration of young Muslim males.  Rotherham, where 1,400 children were abused by organized Muslim gangs as police conspired to deny the horror for a decade and a half, is finally sinking in.  Sweden, which welcomed Muslim “refugees” with extraordinary social benefits, is now the rape capital of Europe.

January 1 signifies new beginnings, while December 31 signifies the end of old things.  Multicultural fantasies are long overdue for discarding, and the wave of sexual assaults across Europe may be the beginning of the end for the illusions that have gripped Europe’s political elites, media, and progressives.

The New Year’s Eve attacks by Muslim “migrants” in Cologne were originally covered up by the police and the media.  But then news began to leak out about the devastating chaos that unfolded in and around the Cologne Cathedral.  (See here, here, here, and here for prior coverage.)  New information continues to emerge, as Pamela Geller reports on cell phones stolen from women who were attacked in Cologne showing up at refugee centers.  Meanwhile, women continue to come forward to report rapes (often gang rape), and a handful of Syrians were arrested, including Syrian males as young as 14 who raped adolescent girls.

Daniel Greenfield also reports:

… Muslim refugees prowled, assaulting and robbing any woman they could find. A police officer described seeing crying women stumble toward him after midnight. He managed to rescue one woman whose clothes had been torn off her body from a group of her attackers, but could not save her friends because the mob had begun hurling fireworks at him. (snip)

Desperate efforts were made to suppress the crimes that had been committed, but too many women had been assaulted. More than 90 complaints had been filed. There was no telling how many more women had been too ashamed to go to the police. Or how many thought that there was no point because the authorities would not be on their side, but on the side of the Muslim refugee rapists.

A man spoke of being unable to protect his wife or teenage daughter from the mob. A British tourist fought against being forced into a car. A 17-year-old girl described being brutally violated and seeing other girls in the police station in the same condition. A 22-year-old woman recalled, “When I called for help, they laughed.” Even a volunteer policewoman had been molested.

Katia remembered walking through a “tunnel” made up only of “foreign men” who assaulted her on all sides[.]

That the cathedral would be the site of this war zone is likely not a coincidence, but it certainly is an irony, as Greenfield writes: “[w]hen the anti-Islamist group Pegida came out to protest last year, the Cologne cathedral turned out its lights to condemn them while pro-migrant activists smugly held up signs reading, ‘Refugees welcome’.”

After news of the violence in Cologne began to leak out, it became clear that rapes and robberies were committed in several cities throughout Germany on New Year’s Eve, including Berlin, Munich, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Weil am Rhein, Frankfurt, Bielefeld, and Freiburg (here and here).

And now we are learning that this barbarity unfolded not just in Germany, but across Europe.  As Pamela Geller writes, this appears to have been coordinated New Year’s Eve jihad terror attacks.

Zurich, Switzerland: As of this writing, six women have come forward to report being surrounded by “several dark-skinned men” who groped, molested, and robbed them.  The police notedthat  this is an unusually high number of sexual assaults for Switzerland (here and here).

Helsinki, Finland: Per

… Finnish police have revealed an unusually high level of sexual harassment in Helsinki on New Year’s Eve and said they had been tipped off about plans by groups of asylum seekers to sexually harass women. (snip)

Helsinki deputy police chief Ilkka Koskimaki told AFP: “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.”

Security guards hired to patrol the city on New Year’s Eve told police there had been “widespread sexual harassment” at a central square where around 20,000 people had gathered for celebrations.

Three sexual assaults allegedly took place at Helsinki’s central railway station on New Year’s Eve, where around 1000 mostly Iraqi asylum seekers had converged. (snip)

“The suspects were asylum seekers. The three were caught and taken into custody on the spot,” Koskimaki told AFP. (snip)

“Ahead of New Year’s Eve, the police caught wind of information that asylum seekers in the capital region possibly had similar plans to what the men gathered in Cologne’s railway station have been reported to have had,” police said in a statement.

Salzburg, Austria: Per

…similar sex attacks were carried out in Austria, but police didn’t publicise the incidents “to protect the privacy of the victims”.

The incidents only came to light after several females came forward to complain to local media.

One identified as Sabrina S (not her real name) told Austrian newspaper Osterreich that she and her friends were attacked by a group of 10-15 men while walking home from a new club in the historic district of Salzburg.

“A friend was grabbed by one of the men and put into a headlock. Her face was in his jacket. He cuddled her and licked her face. She then said that she had no strength to free herself, she was completely at his mercy,” Sabrina said.

It was only after she managed to hit and kick the attacker that her group was able to flee. She claimed to be aware of many other incidents after posting a warning on Facebook.

“Some wrote me that they were greatly distressed at the state bridge, the Makartsteg or the railway station. A girl has even reported it to have been abducted almost New Year’s Eve at the Town Hall by a group,” Sabrina said.

As Daniel Greenfield writes:

… The horrifying scene in Cologne is commonplace in the Muslim world.

While many remember the horrifying sexual assaults of the Arab Spring in Tahrir Square, including the attack on Lara Logan, such incidents are actually commonplace in Egypt, especially around Eid Al-Fitr. It doesn’t matter how the women are dressed. A 2006 story describes mass attacks on “any and every girl in sight, whether a Niqabi, a Hijabi or uncovered. Whether Egyptian or foreigner. Even pregnant ones.” 99% of Egyptian women report being sexually harassed. This behavior has [sic] is common in Muslim lands.

In Iraq, it’s eight out of ten women. In Afghanistan, rape and honor killings are routine. And this is the population that Germany’s mostly Muslim migrants are drawn from.

What happened is inevitable and it will go on happening. More surveillance cameras and patrols won’t stop it. Instead, as in the UK, it will go underground. Muslim men will groom and abuse troubled girls. The authorities will turn a blind eye until a decade later the story gets too big to be covered up. And by then thousands of lives will be ruined. The only way to stop it is to keep it out of Europe and America. (snip)

Due to Germany’s asylum laws, it’s unlikely that any of the foreign attackers will be deported for their crimes…Muslim men who assaulted women know that they have nothing to fear because nothing will happen to them.

… The only way for women in Europe to have a future is to fight the migration mob. Otherwise what happened outside the Cologne cathedral, what happens to the 99% of women in Egypt and what happens in the Islamic State will be their future.

And ours as well.  Ours as well.
