Germany has taken the lead in admitting refugees—if indeed they are refugees. In August alone, it received a record 104,460. Deutschland has inhaled 435,535 in the first eight months of 2015, and expects to receive a total of 800,000 by year’s end—according to data received from Cheri Nocita Berens, an American woman living in Cairo, Egypt. (Quotes herein are hers, unless indicated otherwise.)
Reuters reports that Germany is already “home to some 4 million Muslims, mostly with Turkish backgrounds,” out of a total of 80 million. This reporter had the good fortune to visit the country many times, some years back; it was a picture postcard come to life, with gingerbread houses and amiable people; girls in dirndl dresses, with the kind of innocence not seen in America since the 1950s. “Never was heard a discouraging word,” is a good way to sum it up. Oh, and it was immaculately safe.
The Germans’ experience with political correctness is an object lesson to Americans who yearn to feel the warm glow of having done a good deed, such as taking in 185,000 desperate refugee families, fleeing war—as your president plans, over the next two years. But don’t expect the “diversity” to be good for America—especially if he ups the numbers, as he’s likely to do.
Behold, the fruit of the political correctness tree that Germany has eaten:
“At least 80% of the 413,535 refugees that arrived so far in the last eight months are Muslim (according to Central Council of Muslims in Germany). The refugees are mostly male. Of the refugees arriving in Germany in 2014, 71.5% were males between ages 16 and 19. Data for 2015 is not yet available—but so far, it appears to be predominantly Muslim males ages 16-25.” Here’s the kicker, good-deed doers:
“With this large influx of Muslim males came a very dramatic rise in rapes in Germany.”
This has been the experience in Sweden, as well, earning it the title, “The Rape Capital of the West.” But, fear not: your leaders will devise a plan for adjusting to these changes, even as they have in Germany:
“The liberal German government officials are suggesting that German women dress modestly and that they, in a sense, “ask for it” if they don’t. Police in a Bavarian town, where a 16-year-old-girl was raped on September 11th, issued a warning to parents not to allow their girls to go outside un-chaperoned. This is similar to what they do in Muslim countries to prevent girls from being raped.
“In Muslim countries, if a girl isn’t chaperoned—that girl is considered free game for rape. So basically, Germany is changing their free society, which was safe before Muslims arrived, and where girls could walk to and from school or work without fear of rape, and they did not need a chaperone to do so…
“After Muslim rapes occurred in the Bavarian town of Pocking, officials warned parents not to let their daughters wear revealing clothing so that they would avoid “misunderstandings” with the Muslim refugees housed near a school.”
In Muslim countries, Ms. Berens tells us, “by not covering up [girls] are considered to be making the statement: ‘I’m not covered up so this means you can rape me.’ All Muslim countries have this identical problem. Girls are to blame if they aren’t covered.”
One recalls that 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan was sexually assaulted in 2011, while reporting on Egyptians celebrating the overthrow of longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak. She later reported on her experience, in a 60 Minutes interview:
“There was no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying,” Logan told 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley. “I thought not only am I going to die, but it’s going to be just a torturous death that’s going to go on forever.”
“Logan was separated forcefully from her producer and bodyguard on Feb. 11, 2011, in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt, by what the New York Times described as a “group of men who tore at her clothes and groped and beat her body.’ ”—Breitbart
She’s been hospitalized four times since, for lingering effects of the attack.
CNN reported in 2013, during the protests that led to the removal of Egypt’s next president, Mohammad Morsi: “A 22-year-old Dutch journalist was gang-raped in Tahrir Square and had to undergo surgery for severe injuries. The assault reminds us yet again of an often overlooked aspect of the Egyptian revolution.”
CNN went on to discuss the Lara Logan attack, two years before, which they called “one of the first celebratory acts in Tahrir Square.” So it emerges that the practice is not an anomaly, but part of the Muslim culture:
CNN: “One of the hallmarks of revolutionary victory in Tahrir Square has always been rape and sexual harassment. Mobs of men routinely set upon women, isolating, stripping and groping. No one is ever arrested or held accountable, and elected officials shrug their shoulders and blame the victims.”
CNN said it’s a message to women: “Stay home, your input in government and politics is not wanted.”
It’s worth noting then, that the obligatory commentators’ phrase in America: “Of course, most Muslims are not violent,” which must precede reports of terrorism, is little more than a useless exhalation of breath: sexual violence is part of their culture, and must be expected if we import them into our midst, in any numbers. We simply have to adjust to it, for the sake of diversity.
That’s easy: just cover up, and you’ll be OK, right? Wrong, says Cheri Nocita Berens:
“Statistics from Muslim countries prove that [if] more women become veiled, there is a rise in rapes. Studies also show … the younger that girls are forced to wear headscarves or veils, [the] higher the number of rapes committed on these same young girls.” She explains, “Covering” young girls means that they are covering something ‘sexual.’ This idea of having their sexuality covered up appears to make young males even more tempted to rape…
“A local politician quoted by Die Welt newspaper said: ‘When Muslim teenage boys go to open air swimming pools, they are overwhelmed when they see girls in bikinis. These boys, who come from a culture where, for women it is frowned upon to show naked skin, will follow girls and bother them without their realizing it.’ ”
“Following is a short list of rapes on German women by Muslim refugees in 2015. Note that the refugees who committed these rapes were not Syrian. They were: Iraqi, Tunisian, Somali, Moroccan, Senegalese, Afghan, Eritreans, Turkish, and also from other Muslim countries. It is my opinion that there is more going on than a ‘Syrian’ refugee problem. Most Syrian refugees are women, children and the elderly. Young Syrian males join the army… The Syrian Army defends these villages. Young males of the villages join the army—they don’t leave.
“I believe these young, male Muslim ‘refugees’ from various Muslim countries have been sent on a more devious mission. Just as ISIS and various Rebel groups are able to recruit endless members from various countries to fight in Syria against the Syrian people, they are also recruiting these young Muslims for missions inside Europe. Meanwhile, while these young men rally and prepare, they have no desire to assimilate or follow western laws.”
Incidentally, the huddled masses reaching Germany may yearn to breathe free, but they deny that freedom to the luckless Christians thrown into their midst—drowning some, on the way over and persecuting the survivors, who must live with them, in emergency housing.
Beware: this is what our president, and Democrats calling for intake of greater numbers of refugees, have planned for America:
September 11, a 16-year-old girl was raped by a refugee in the Bavarian town of Mering. The attack occurred while the girl was walking home from the train station.
August 13, police arrested two Iraqi asylum seekers, aged 23 and 19, for raping an 18-year-old German woman behind a schoolyard in Hamm.
July 26, a 14-year-old boy was sexually assaulted inside the bathroom of a train station in Heilbronn. Police are looking for a “dark skinned” man of “Arab appearance.”
July 26, a 21-year-old Tunisian asylum seeker raped a 20-year-old woman in the Dornwaldsiedlung district. Police kept the crime secret until August 14, when a local paper went public with the story (German police are being told not to promote a bad image of Muslim refugees).
