Did you hear about any of this? Unless you get your news from the conservative press, probably not. Here’s Phyllis Chesler writing at the Middle East Forum:
On New Year’s Eve, large gangs of Arab, North African, and Muslim men sexually assaulted women in a large number of cities in both Germany and in Austria.
These attackers, often a thousand strong, simultaneously stuck their fingers into every female orifice; groped, licked, hit, and terrified every vulnerable woman who was out celebrating the holiday.
The traumatized women did not all report these assaults to the police because they were traumatized and because many could not identify their attackers; there were so many of them. The media also under-reported these rapes—not until one hundred German women in the city of Cologne, a number that grew to close to 400 by the weekend, reported their assaults to the police, did the matter become public.
Some media have refused to name the perpetrators as being Muslim or of Arab descent.
Some media, including feminist media, refused to name the perpetrators as being of Arab or North African descent or as “Muslims.” They do not wish to be demonized as “racists” or “Islamophobes” but there is also a legitimate feminist reason.
European men rape European women every single day. But make no mistake: the pattern of sexual harassment and rape in the Muslim world in general is vastly different. Muslims in Sudan and Nigeria have perpetrated similar horrific attacks upon Christian, animist, and Muslim women. Similar atrocities took place in the former Yugoslavia, perpetrated by both Serb and Croat Christians and Muslims. Nevertheless, in an Islamist era, such Muslim-perpetrated attacks have assumed monstrous proportions.
