German police are investigating reports that scores of women were sexually assaulted and mugged in Cologne city centre during New Year’s Eve celebrations, in what a minister called a “completely new dimension of crime”.
Authorities and media were accused of a cover-up linked to initial indications that, according to the police, those allegedly responsible for the sex attacks and numerous robberies were of Arab and north African origin.
Sixty complaints were filed to police, a third of which were linked to sexual assault. Cologne’s mayor, Henriette Reker, called an emergency meeting of high-ranking security officials on Tuesday, saying her aim was to ensure the city centre did not turn into a “lawless zone”.
Between 500 and 1,000 men described as drunk and aggressive are believed to have been behind the attacks on partygoers in the centre of the western German city. Whether they were working as a single group or in separate gangs remains unclear.
Women reported being tightly surrounded by groups of men who harassed and mugged them. Some people threw fireworks into the crowds, adding to the chaos.
“Sexual crimes took place on a huge scale,” said the police president, Wolfgang Albers. “The crimes were committed by a group of people who from appearance were largely from the north African or Arab world.”
He said one of the victims had been raped. A volunteer policewoman was among those said to have been sexually assaulted.
The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, called Reker to express her outrage, according to a statement from her office. She called for authorities to find the perpetrators as “quickly and comprehensively as possible and to punish them without regard to their origin or background.”
Officers are working on the assumption that the men had organised their plan of attack. They said many of the perpetrators were known to them and some may have been asylum seekers, though not new arrivals to Germany.
Similar attacks are believed to have taken place on a smaller scale in Hamburg’s red light district of St Pauli on New Year’s Eve, according to a police spokesman.

In Cologne, police said the men appeared to have come from Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia and were on average in their mid-20s. They had gathered on the square in front of the main train station next to the city’s towering Gothic cathedral and smaller groups of men appeared to repeatedly leave the group to target female revellers, many of whom had arrived via train from the provinces around Cologne to celebrate the new year in the city.
Heiko Maas, Germany’s justice minister, condemned the attacks and called for better police protection in German cities. “The despicable attacks on women will not be tolerated. This is obviously a completely new dimension of organised crime,” he tweeted.
Barbara Steffens, the minister for emancipation in the North Rhine Westphalia (NRW) government, said the New Year’s Eve incident was “the tip of a very unpleasant iceberg”. She called for a “larger societal condemnation of a male abuse of power”.
The density of the crowds in Cologne meant that hundreds of police were deployed on Thursday night. Questions are being asked as to how they failed to realise until much later that crimes were taking place on such a large scale. Police say the full extent of the attacks only became clear in the following days as increasing numbers of victims began to come forward. It is believed that many women have yet to report assaults, and police appealed for people who had not already done so to come forward.
Arnold Plickert, head of the police trade union in NRW, told the Deutsche Presse Agentur that the incidents were “of a new quality … What we’ve been able to establish is that this is an organised method.”
He said questions needed to be asked as to “how it was possible that this thousand-strong group was able to come to Cologne and meet up there”.
Police in Hamburg said some aspects of the attackers’ methods were akin to those of skilled pickpockets operating in the city.
Officers of Operation New Year, set up to investigate the attacks, will examine CCTV footage from in and around the station in an effort to identify perpetrators. Reker said a discussion on installing further cameras would form part of her emergency talks.
One of the victims, identified only as Katja L, told the Kölner Express: “When we came out of the station, we were very surprised by the group we met, which was made up only of foreign men … We walked through the group of men, there was a tunnel through them, we walked through … I was groped everywhere. It was a nightmare. Although we shouted and hit them, they men didn’t stop. I was horrified and I think I was touched around 100 times over the 200 metres.”

One investigator told the Kölner Express: “The female victims were so badly pushed about, they had heavy bruises on their breasts and behinds.”
Critics of Merkel’s open-door policyon refugees were quick to blame it for the attacks, despite the police’s insistence that the alleged perpetrators were not new arrivals.
One tweet attributed to a follower of Pegida, the anti-Islam, anti-immigrant protest group , stated: “Merkel … you’re an accessory to the abuse at Cologne.”
On Pegida’s Facebook page, a woman identifying herself as Angelina Southern got more than 500 likes for her comment: “I could puke when I read this, and there are still so many deluded idiots who say ‘Welcome refugees’ … Close the borders now. For God’s sake, Merkel belongs on the scaffold.”
The attacks have been the main talking point on Twitter in Germany, with some people accusing the media of a cover-up and others expressing their concern that the incident would be seized on by anti-refugee groups.
On New Year’s Eve worldwide attention had been focused on the southern German city of Munich where areas around the main station and another station outside the centre were closed after intelligence reports indicated that Islamic State supporters planned to launch attacks.It followed the cancellation of a football matchin the northern city of Hanover in November after a French tipoff that Isis planned to target the stadium

The Germans brought this upon themselves. All Muslims are potential rapists, terrorists , pedophiles etc.
They should be prepared for another version of ISIS springing up in Germany.

Foolish Germans want to appear as caring and hospitable to the world.
Foolish Germans sacrificed common sense and fact for this religious miscreants.
|Re: Arab Asylum Seekers Rape Scores Of Women In Germany On New Years Eve by parisbookaddict(f): 7:17am On Jan 06, 2016|
The crazy thing about this (if u read more stuff online) is that these rapes where committed by muslim rape gangs seeking asylum in Germany.
The media outside Germany is not reporting this, I didn't see this on CNN or BBC.
There were over 500- 1000 Arab men in the train station groping these women, other more unfortunate women where followed and raped.
It was coordinated.
Merkel has acknowledged this happened yet see will still take in more refugees.
The reason these men did this is that according to them if a woman is not wearing a hijab and "properly" dresses she must be molested and taught a lesson, its a common practice in the middle east.
It's a shame but more of this will keep happening in stupid democracys that put political correctness before common sense.

What do you expect when their prophet was a serial rapist? Raping is part of the sunnah of their prophet.
|Re: Arab Asylum Seekers Rape Scores Of Women In Germany On New Years Eve by APCzombie: 7:33am On Jan 06, 2016|
The German mainstream media is not reporting this as well.
The news is trending on social media and some conservative media platforms.
The news only began to get out just yesterday after the police boss held a press Confrence 6 days after. Remember this happened on new year's eve.
Angela Merkel is by far the worst excuse of a leader.

U are correct because I got to know about this from reddit, a social media platform.
I pity Germans, they accept muslims to make up for their atrocities against Jews...
But middle east muslims are not normal sane thinking humans.
In the coming decades the country will be burdened with higher crime rates, protests, push for sharia, higher paedophilia convictions, hate crimes against Jews, rape gangs, rapidly increasing muslim population as a result of polygamy, welfare issues, terrorist threats, sharia zone issues, hijab issues, extremist right wing neo nazis protesters etc.
|Re: Arab Asylum Seekers Rape Scores Of Women In Germany On New Years Eve by APCzombie: 7:48am On Jan 06, 2016|
Reddit? I am suprised the leftist mods there allowed a thread on this.
I am guessing the redditor mods had no choice to allow the thread to stay after the German police press Confrence.
This news has been trending on /pol/ since on the 1st.
|Re: Arab Asylum Seekers Rape Scores Of Women In Germany On New Years Eve by APCzombie: 7:54am On Jan 06, 2016|
The foolishness of people like Merkel is that they think these Arab Muslims can integrate in a liberal society.
These people have no personal restraint and need a brutal dictatorship and police state to keep them in line.
The excuse for this nonsense immigration has shifted from empathy for fellow man fleeing conflict to job creation.
These people on average don't even posses a basic WAEC equivalent and have been described as unemployable.
Instead of allowing the Germans to enjoy better wages as a result of low workforce the ediots with ink by importing these barbarians into Germany they will reduce the cost of wages thereby impoverishing the average German .
It's all about business and Merkel was lobbied by German industrialists to fling the borders open in order to have access to cheap labour.

To be honest with you reddit mods and a lot of redditors are a bunch leftist godless self righteous "political correctness" blinded group of people.
But these days especially after the french attacks I have seen more and more redditors condemn Islam for what it is. I have even quoted violent passages from the quran which the mods did not remove. And have even received upvotes on comments criticizing Islam.

|Re: Arab Asylum Seekers Rape Scores Of Women In Germany On New Years Eve by vedaxcool(m): 8:07am On Jan 06, 2016|
When will you grow a fully matured reasoning faculty? Are your priests that rape boys muslims? Or your pastors that deceive married women looking for fruits of the womb into sleeping with them muslims? Or hitler, anders breviek, all the gun murderers in the states raised by xtian parents muslims? By the grace of God those refugees would not pay Germany kindness with wickedness. Amin.
The sexual misconduct occurred under the influence of alcohol clearly the first indication those attackers are not anywhere near practicing muslims. But trust some uneducated fools to always want to promote their religion by taking rare stories that occur within their religion on a large scale to bring religion into the fray.
If this makes fp, then this 2 threads must be pushed to fp, unless lala has a life long mission of posting crap about muslims;
|Re: Arab Asylum Seekers Rape Scores Of Women In Germany On New Years Eve by parisbookaddict(f): 8:08am On Jan 06, 2016|
I have NOT looked at It from the perspective of cheap labour.
There is cheap labour all over Europe. Eg East Europe, the Poland, Ukraine etc are exporters of cheap labour all over Europe,
By the way most Arab refugees are uneducated Islamist who don't assimilate (take a look at France which has the highest muslim population in western Europe).
I think it is all about ideology and Ego.
Merkel has a big Ego wants to be remembered as a benevolent chancellor who was liberal and "progressive" and tried to rid Germany of its superiority complex and racism. Well it won't work. Muslims don't acknowledge kindness from the "kaffir". They think that allah deceived the "kaffirs" to receive muslims so they can dominate the world as the quran tell them.

Jihadist don arrive with his weak ass Taqiyya.
|Re: Arab Asylum Seekers Rape Scores Of Women In Germany On New Years Eve by parisbookaddict(f): 8:20am On Jan 06, 2016|
Mr al taqiyya. First of all, most muslims drink alcohol off and on or use one from of drugs or the other. Go to northern Nigeria and see the cough syrup drinking, glue sniffing, fuel sniffing, embalment fluid drinking going on there. Can u swear by allah that u have NEVER drank alcohol. Don't use al taqiyya to answer.
There was no mention of alcohol involved in the incident. Even if there was, don't use that as an excuse, Why were the Christians and non muslims who take alcohol not involved in this disgusting assault.
What the police and withnesses say is that hundreds of Arab and north African men (presumably muslims of middle eastern decent) lined up to assault women living the train station and raping some later. An organized large scale event that has never happened before in Germany.
The reason these men did this is that according to them if a woman is not wearing a hijab and "properly" dresses she must be molested and taught a lesson, its a common practice in the middle east. Do u claim u don't know this??

When the Archibishop Desmond Tutu attended her daughter gay wedding, all Christians were not lawless, stup1d, gays, senseless and Bible didn't teach them to be sodomists?
You see, you hypocritically generalized your condemnations when Islam and Muslims are involved but only attacked the culprit when Christianity and Christians are involved.

1,416 years ago, the meccans thought they could curtail mohamed and his al majiris madness by been nice, and diplomatic before they could react *bam bam bam * mohamed has taken over, there molested wives,orphan children, looted treasures, headless bodies in the trenches were the price they payed, till today there gory stories ve never been heard.
Yet this European countries ve not learn anything, an average Muslim believe every part of this world belongs to them, if this continue in the next 10 years... It will be nothing but tears, sorrows and blood.
