Cologne attacks and “the elephant in the room”



“The New Year’s Eve attacks on women in Cologne are still reverberating in Germany, with the resignation of the city’s police chief on Friday, and news that migrants were among the suspected attackers. The BBC’s Jenny Hill looks back on a week that has left both women and asylum-seekers feeling vulnerable.”

The above paragraph is how the PC brigade at the BBC choose to describe the consequences of unprovoked assaults, sexual assaults, several rapes and numerous robberies against women in Cologne on New years Eve. Notice how the asylum seekers have now become victims and we are invited to feel sorry for these people who were welcomed into Germany and given help and financial support.

What do many of them repay the German people with?………well I have listed them above.

It is noticeable that the BBC studiously avoided mentioning in their early reports that all the assaults had been committed by men of “North African / Arab appearance.”

Radio 5 Live presenter Peter Allen wondered “if it wasn’t just a case of bored young men full of energy”….no doubt an energy that they have been prevented from using productively and positively by discrimination and racism. Well thank you for that enlightened and misogynistic view Peter, let’s blame the victims.

Saira KhanSaira Khan (BBC documentary maker) writing today in the Daily Mail said  “When the news broke about these assaults, I was shocked and dismayed that the liberal response of officials in Germany and of broadcasters here was not to address the ‘elephant in the room’: that they were all carried out by African and Arab men who were either migrants or asylum seekers.

Not addressing this profound clash of cultures only promises to make things worse.
Having grown up in an Asian Muslim household and community in Britain, I can recognise the symptoms all too clearly. Along with my female Asian friends, I saw Asian men ‘get away with murder’, while as girls, we were strictly controlled – what we said, who we said it to, where we went, what we wore, who we married. As women, our conduct, behaviour and reputation all had a bearing on the family’s ‘honour’ – and to dishonour the family could mean death. The Asian culture I grew up in was misogynistic – and it still is.”

There have already been warnings from various security services that ISIS supporters are entering European countries posing as asylum seekers with the intention or wreaking havoc in the name of jihad, and yet we in the west are supposed to throw open our arms and welcome people who bring a culture that is very much at odds with liberal western values (particularly in the treatment of women). Remember, it is only a year since the slaughter of  journalists at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo because muslims “took offence” at their magazine.

Many liberal commentators will say the attacks in Cologne were a “one off” but evidence is emerging that similar attacks have taken place in other European countries.

  • Sweden has issued warnings to women to be wary of potential attacks
  • 15 young women have reported being groped by men in Kalmar, Sweden
  • Austrian police have come under fire after claims attacks were covered-up
  • Finnish police say they have information that the attacks are co-ordinated
  • Vienna’s police chief advises women not to go out on the streets alone
  • Cologne police chief Wolfgang Albers relieved of his duties over handling of New Year’s Eve sex attacks

We are constantly told by the “leftist / PC merchants” that we should embrace multiculturalism, welcome people of different faiths and cultures to the UK, and indeed we have a long (and proud) history of taking in those fleeing persecution, from the Huguenots to the Jews. Many of these groups have assimilated into British society whilst retaining a link with their religious and cultural heritage. It is only representatives of one religious cult that have blown people up on the underground and on buses, attacked and murdered off duty soldiers and try to impose their despotic beliefs and ideas on the indigenous population.

However, having lived in West Yorkshire now for nearly 25 years (always with a substantial asian population) I notice more and more muslim women wearing all black and full veil, hands covered in a complete rejection of western society which values open ness and where covering the face is considered impolite and the refusal of muslim women to shake hands with a male quite offensive. But of course WE are expected to respect the religious and cultural values of islam but there is to be no reciprocation.

Indeed, the Koran expressly forbids association with “kuffars” (Against kuffars make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war to strike terror into the (hearts of) the Enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside, whom you may not know, but whom Allah does know. Whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah, shall be repaid to you, and you shall not be treated unjustly. Qur’an: 8:60).

A more recent pronouncement by a resident of Britain was: Killing a Kafir who is fighting you is OK. Killing a Kafir for any reason, you can say, it is OK – even if there is no reason for it. You can poison, ambush and kill non-believers. You must have a stand with your heart, with your tongue, with your money, with your hand, with your sword, with your Kalashnikov. Don’t ask shall I do this, just do it.
Abu Hamza al-Masri
(Egyptian born British Cleric)

It should be noted that after years of pussyfooting around by the British government the Americans indicted Hamza, got him extradited to America, put him on trial, convicted him and sentenced him to life imprisonment. Not only that they took away his infamous hook hands.

A German police commissioner recently told an audience of how “delinquent”, mainly Muslim migrants refuse to accommodate to their host nations, adding: “We have an increasing number of migrants in Germany, and many have not learned to have respect for women and the state. They live in parallel societies, where different rules apply.”

Tania Kambouri, who has written of her experiences in her role as a police chief in a new book, said that there is a “taboo” around multiculturalism and those coming from Islamic countries, though she was keen to stress that her comments were not racially motivated, according to Die Welt.

One thing that does strike me as odd in all of this. is the fact that all these asylum seekers / migrants want to come to Europe (and more specifically Norther Europe) but once here will criticise our way of life, values and our culture. Why is that NONE of the asylum seekers / migrants head to other muslim countries where they would be “at one” with the religious and cultural heritages of those countries. Moreover, why do these muslim countries not welcome with open arms all their muslim bothers and sisters as they are all part of the “ummah”.

What we find is that these islamic countries (particularly those in the middle east) have virtually put a “no entry” sign up and discouraged (and in some cases refuse entry) movement as they would not fit in. So its OK for muslim countries to say these people will not fit in but when Slovakia and Poland said the same thing they were branded as racist!

What happened in Cologne may be the start of a cultural war between the inward looking muslims and those of us in the west who value freedom of thought and expression, freedom to worship and choice of religion. It is time someone stood up and asked “what is the elephant in the room?”

One Response to Cologne attacks and “the elephant in the room”

    Well said. It’s frightening that most muslims refuse to condemn this sort of behaviour & are not prepared to fit into our society – yet want all the benefits of good education & healthcare. Yes some do contribute but the majority stay silent
