The Zero Hedge headline is designed to shock:
Germany In Shock After "Monstrous" Attacks, Rape By 1,000 Men "Of Arab Or North African Origin", Zero Hedge January 5, 2016, http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-01-05/germany-shock-after-monstrous-attacks-rape-1000-men-arab-or-north-african-origin
ZeroHedge references BBC coverage of the event. Here is an excerpt:
Germany shocked by Cologne New Year gang assaults on women, BBC January 5, 2015, accessed January 5, 2015, http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35231046
What is particularly disturbing is that the attacks appear to have been organised. Around 1,000 young men arrived in large groups, seemingly with the specific intention of carrying out attacks on women. Police in Hamburg are now reporting similar incidents on New Year's Eve in the party area of St Pauli. One politician says this is just the tip of the iceberg. And there are real concerns about what will happen in February when the drunken street-parties of carnival season kick off.The women were groped, robbed and one reported rape.
I have a very bad feeling about this story. Organized aggression against women is frightening in many ways. Also frightening is the aggression against nations that produced the immigrant rush, which no doubt includes many traumatized people.
The immigrant situation is a tinder-box. This type of story is the match, whether by accident or design. Race wars are far too seductive despite the proven horrors of their inevitable conclusion.
I very, very much hope that European politicians and publics can dampen the growing fire without compounding the tragic range of human rights abuses that have already occurred.
