Recently we published, “Rape in Sweden Increased 1,472% from 1975 to 2014.” The post examined the deadly mix of postmodernism, with its dismissal of objective truth, and the violent misogyny of Islamism. Sweden’s rape experience is just the worst of several European countries that have seen an alarming growth of atrocities committed against women by refugees who are Muslims.
Some readers may have wondered if we are overblowing this issue. Skeptical or not, you would do well to educate yourself by reading a January 2018 article published by the Polish website “EuroIslam.” The article records an interview with Rebecca Sommer, a German artist, activist for the rights of indigenous peoples, and UN advisor.
Many “social justice warriors” would identify with how Ms. Sommer describes her initial approach to refugees. She served with compassion to help people find sanctuary in her nation. She worked long hours and gave of her own time to settle needy foreigners.
At the same time, she was dismissive of the warnings of cultural insiders who told her some Muslims would deceive and take advantage of her. But she gradually woke to reality. In the interview she describes how her exposure to the Muslim refugee community slowly changed her mind. In many ways she experienced a 180-degree change of perspective.
The article is long but compelling and challenging. Here are some excerpts but you will do well to read the whole thing. Note: Faithful Christ followers will not agree with every liberty she espouses but her story needs to be heard.
Friendship betrayed by Muslims
- They had become my friends … I helped them during the asylum procedures, I dealt with their official matters, I got them apartments, furniture, cell phones, computers, clothing, courses, jobs, scholarships and spent countless free hours of my private time on individual cases. However … I was lied to by these people … who ate with me, drank, danced, laughed, did not pray, did not go to the mosque, did not observe Ramadan, mocked religion and deeply religious people, they, all [the] while eating my food and sitting in my garden, they don’t talk about me other than “a stupid German whore.”
- They were my actual example of successful integration and friendship between people with Western views and people from the Arab-Muslim culture. I was helping them, protecting them, supporting them and I offered them a real friendship. I accepted them with open arms in Germany and for this I got disrespect by their words and deeds as a “thank you.”
- For example, after a volunteer spent three months teaching German to a Syrian twice a week, she was convinced that everything was going well and that she was just trying to be kind and accepted the invitation for a meal together. She just thinks that he wants to thank her for help, and he thinks that the “whore” wants sexual encounter. These women do not realize that they are perceived by men from this cultural circle as infidel, immoral, and always sexually subordinate to the man, because at first the refugees seem very nice, polite and well-mannered – that is, they practice the aforementioned taqqiya. And then there was a very unpleasant surprise when a friendly – until now – immigrant dragged her by her hair into the bathroom at the moment when she wanted to say goodbye ...
Unsuspecting women pay a price
- The percentage of honor killings is constantly growing – let’s remember that in this culture a woman is a man’s property.
- Political Islam in Germany is trying … to get the foot in the door even deeper. Muslims are constantly trying to portray themselves as victims, complaining that they are offended or discriminated against, that the West is to blame for everything, ultimately leading everyone to give way.
- We have more and more forced marriages, and even the trade of girls and children. … the police and offices have a tough dilemma with such matters, there were even excuses that “this is part of their culture”. So suddenly we have two legal systems functioning in one country! … However, the fact that girls are bought and sold is real. They live as sex slaves and work slaves, always controlled and robbed of their freedom.
- We also have a case of a Pakistani who raped a six-year-old girl and was given a suspended sentence because of his “cultural background”. A man from Afghanistan, who was reported to the police by his wife because he had raped her many times, was not sentenced to prison, “because he was not aware that it was rape.”
- In one case, a female judge was looking for reasons that could justify the Turkish rapist. The rapist thrust the woman’s head between the rungs of the bed and was raping her brutally for hours. Medical examination has clearly shown extreme violence: the woman couldn’t walk for almost two weeks and her body was covered with bruises. But the decisive factor for the end of this case was the question of the judge addressed to the victim witness: “Is it possible that the accused thought that the victim consented?”
German’s legal system is failing its people
- Parallel law developed, where our legal system doesn’t reach anymore, it seems that everyone is afraid of them: judges, lawyers, police, the government has lost all control.
- They have a culture of hatred and contempt – and that’s why they commit their crimes in cold blood and without emotions. Berlin judge Kirsten Heisig, who fought juvenile, gang and migrant crime, was declared missing after she did not show up at work on the morning of June 29, 2010. Four days later, she was found hung dead from a tree in a forest near Berlin. Only two hours after her body was discovered, the justice senator of Berlin announced that she had “obviously” committed suicide.
- On the other hand, I have truly deserving people who want to stay with us forever and have the right to do so – who are persecuted in their countries, often for reasons of faith; they are Christians, Yazidis, ex-Muslims. These people have to wait far too long for their family to come, which is absolutely tragic and not right.
Let’s not be blinded by the postmodern narrative that culture is unimportant. The lie of cultural relativism is driving what is happening in many cities of Europe. Thank you, Rebecca Sommers, for your compassion for the refugees flooding into Europe and your willingness to challenge political correctness when things go wrong.
