What happened to Lara Logan in Tahrir Square in Egypt should have been a wake-up call. Although she bravely reported on her near death experience of gang rape turned lynch mob, that screamed “Jew, Jew” as they attempted to tear her apart, the world just sighed, turned down the volume, looked away and said: “It’s not about Islam.”
As wave after wave of migrants beat upon the shores of Europe, the number of rapes rose dramatically. This should have set off warning alarms but Europe preferred to not see the crimes against their women, hiding the origin of the perpetrators in order to prevent “Islamophobia’ while at the same time announcing, “It’s not about Islam”.
More and more reports are coming out of women being attacked, molested and raped in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany and France. Sweden is now number two on the list of rape countries, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa.
The mass molestation of women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve was impossible to ignore or hide. Too many women filed official complaints. Police in Berlin, Hamburg, Bielefeld, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart have reported of similar incidents. Police in Vienna and Salzburg in Austria and Zurich in Switzerland have raised the alarm about similar mass assaults against women by newly arrived Arab migrants. Also Sweden and Finland experienced the same on New Year’s Eve.
We learned that there is a name for these mass assaults: Taharrush.
More and more women are speaking out via social media about being afraid to walk in their own cities, feeling threatened, being verbally abused and physically attacked.
Now stories of molestation of European women and young girls are appearing in mainstream media. These stories are framed in the context of needing to educate migrants on how to treat women i.e. it’s not “nice” to molest or rape. No real solution is offered, aside from educational posters in public places and comments like “stay at arm’s length,” “don’t go out on your own” and “stay away from the neighborhoods where the migrants are”.
Many still refuse to see the problem. Some see but prefer to blame the victims. Women have begun to cry out for help, for protection.
I have two words for the women of Europe: Krav Maga.
It comes from Israel and it could be what saves you. Don’t wait for your government to protect you. Don’t hope a man will protect you. Protect yourself.
