A string of sex attacks that rocked Europe on New Year’s Eve is the inevitable result of politically-correct immigration and social policies that allowed thousands of Muslim migrants to flood the continent with impunity in 2015.
“It is becoming more clear to local police — and as such the wider world — that a lot of those that are participating in the ‘Taharrush’ phenomenon were recently arrived migrants,” according to Raheem Kassam, a Shillman/Ginsburg Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum.
Taharrush gamea means “collective harassment” in Arabic and is used to describe a phenomenon in which large groups of men surround a woman then sexually assault her. One victim from Cologne, Germany — Katja L — described her ordeal to German newspaper Der Express:

1000 + migrants involved
500 + criminal complaints filed
200 + arrests made
| Attackers described exclusively as appearing North African or Arab
| Victims mostly white European women
“We then walked through this group of men. There was an alley through which we walked through. Suddenly I felt a hand on my buttocks, then on my breasts, in the end, I was groped everywhere. It was a nightmare. Although we shouted and beat them, the guys did not stop. I… think I was touched around 100 times in the 200 meters.”
This disgusting phenomenon was hitherto found outside of Europe. Now, thanks to Frau Merkel and other multiculturalist masochists who encouraged thousands of young Arab men to stream into Europe, it is a European phenomenon as well.
Multiculturalism is the politically-correct idea that two or more different — if not diametrically opposed — cultural traditions can coexist under the same polity. It is the philosophical basis of every liberal policy that encourages mass immigration without any subsequent efforts at assimilation.
But if the suffocating and noxious cloud of political correctness that hovers over the continent is what encouraged Europeans to roll out the welcome mat for the multitudes of Muslim men over the summer, it has made dealing with the disastrous effects of their arrival all but impossible.
Members of the German Establishment were quick to blame Cologne police for a poor response to the attacks, but this blame is misplaced and self-serving, says Kassam. “It isn’t a policing problem – it’s a political problem,” he explains. “The police are having their hands tied by the politically correct establishment, and in fact Cologne was refused extra resources that it requested for New Year’s [Eve].”
In October 2015, Merkel criticized Hungary for its response to the migrant crisis, which was to build a big, beautiful wall. “A rejection [of accepting refugees] as a matter of principle, that is … a danger for Europe,” she said, adding that “the refugees won’t be stopped if we just build fences.” One might have noticed, however, that Budapest is conspicuously absent from the list of cities that experienced an epidemic of sexual assaults on New Year’s Eve.
When hordes of mostly young, mostly male Muslims began streaming into Europe in the spring of 2015, many voiced concerns over the consequences such a mass movement of people may have for European society and social cohesion.

Their doubts were met by the European Establishment and its social justice mercenaries with charges of bigotry and racism. But those doubts were based not on racism, but on realism. Europe already had problems with Muslim men and sexual assault.
A 2012 investigation revealed that gangs of Pakistani men in Northern England had been running child rape rings, grooming girls as young as 12. The majority of the victims were white, British girls. Sweden now has one of the highest rates of rape in the world.
In 2013 it was estimated that 1 in 4 Swedish girls would be raped in her lifetime, and in the first seven months of that year, over one thousand rapes occurred in Stockholm. Once again the majority of the rapists were Muslim migrants, the victims white, Swedish girls.
“A blonde, Western woman is an especially tempting target,” says Kassam. “For them, they embody the West, a West that they are savagely jealous of, and a West that they believe owes them and should prostrate before them.”
