We reported Tuesday on the mass sexual attack carried out by up to a thousand men on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany. While there was still some uncertainty regarding who those carrying out the attack were – we happened to have a hunch that they were part of the group of refugees that Merkel mindlessly allowed in the country.And we had a reason for the hunch – Sweden and Norway saw an explosion of crime after an influx of Muslim immigration, and the Cologne police chief referred to the incidents as “a completely new dimension of crime.”
While we were all worried about fake refugees – terrorists posing as refugees to gain access to the Western world, we overlooked problems that could be caused by the real refugees as well.
While previously there was some ambiguity with regard to who actually perpetrated the attacks, authorities are now sure that “most” of those involved were “freshly traveled asylum seekers.” Here’s Die Welt (translated):The identity checks revealed Cologne police report continues: “Only a small minority were North Africans, the majority Syrians.”
That had resulted from submitted documents. Initially perpetrators were assumed to be North African young men, because they were known petty criminals in Cologne for more than a year. “But most of them were freshly traveled asylum seekers. They presented documents handed out at the points of an asylum application.” The receiving site then gives the applicant a copy of the application, with a copy of the photos.
The majority were Syrians. And from the Crime Scene Investigation, the activity was classified as “sexual entertainment”.In another point contradicting the initial official reports, it was said the offenders had gone primarily to steal from passersby. The sexual harassment was only incidental. “In reality it behaved exactly the opposite,” said Cologne police to “Welt am Sonntag”.“Primarily most Arab perpetrators committed sexual offenses or, to put it from their point of view, for their sexual amusement. A group of men circled a female victim, closed in and takes on the woman.”
How obvious was it that this would’ve happened? So easy even a liberal could’ve predicted it.Bill Maher stated on his show in late November “I think that Islam is a problem” and that “people who think Syrian refugees have values at odds with U.S. values, may not be wrong.” He continued:
“We here in the West, experience occasional terrorism, as bad as it is. Muslims around the world, experience everyday terrorism. I’m talking about the wife whose husband can beat her with impunity. The gay person, who if he comes out, will be put to death. The maid who can be raped with impunity. The intellectuals in the Muslim world who would like to speak out, but they see bloggers getting killed, or the artists who would like to paint what they want, and they can’t. I don’t know why liberals can’t stand up for those people. Those are the Muslims on whose side you should be.”
Five of the wealthiest Muslims nations aren’t taking on refugees for national security reasons. Honestly, what did Merkel think would happen?
