It won’t take much more of this for Europeans to let loose their inner Viking, Saxon, or Goth:
Reports now suggest that women in Finland and Sweden experienced similar assaults on New Year’s Eve by asylum seekers.
“Finnish police reported Thursday 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,” AFP reports, adding that “three sexual assaults allegedly took place at Helsinki’s central railway station on New Year’s Eve, where around 1,000 mostly Iraqi asylum seekers had converged.”
“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,” the city’s deputy police chief said. “The suspects were asylum seekers. The three were caught and taken into custody on the spot,” Koskimaki told AFP.
Apparently, the attacks were premeditated. “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,” a police statement read.
And it wasn’t just Finland.
“Swiss police said several women were allegedly robbed and sexually assaulted in Zurich on New Year’s Eve, [in a] method ‘a little bit similar’ to that used in a spate of assaults in Germany,” The Herald Sun writes. “And it has now emerged that similar sex attacks were carried out in Austria, but police didn’t publicise the incidents ‘to protect the privacy of the victims’”.
Protecting the privacy of the victims? Or protecting Angela Merkel? The German newspaper Bild Friday published accusations of a deliberate effort by police to keep the public in the dark.
In Cologne, police initially claimed there was no evidence that immigrants were involved in the sexual assaults, even though the log from the riot police said that most of the 71 people arrested on New Year’s Eve were asylum seekers. A police official in Frankfurt told the paper “strict instructions had been given not to volunteer information about crimes committed by refugees.”
A Syrian man reportedly told police as he was arrested, “You have to treat me kindly because Ms. Merkel invited me.”
There were so many Arab or North African men involved in the Cologne attacks that victims and police are finding it nearly impossible to identify suspects. That makes it difficult to see how Ms. Merkel will follow through on her promise to deport lawbreakers.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that there are two paths forward for Europeans: Mass deportation or violence.
