    Germany - 'Taharrush gamea' Arab rape game' comes to Europe - 2016 Jan 12

    Germany - 'Taharrush gamea' Arab rape game' comes to Europe - 2016 Jan 12




    Published on Jan 13, 2016

    The Arabic gang-rape 'Taharrush' phenomenon which sees women surrounded by groups of men in crowds and sexually assaulted... and has now spread to Europe

    The Arabic term 'taharrush' roughly translates to 'collective harassment'

    It refers to sexual assaults carried out by groups of men in public places
    Surrounded by dozens of attackers, lone women are groped or raped
    The phenomenon was first seen in 2011 when a reporter was attacked
    Lara Logan endured an assault while reporting on the protests in Egypt
    Police say attacks in Cologne marked Europe's first instance of taharrush

    Police fear a gang-rape phenomenon known as 'taharrush gamea' in the Arab world and seen in attacks on women across German cities at the New Year has now spread to Europe.

    The name of the practice translates to 'collective harassment' and is carried out by large groups of men who sexually assault lone women, either by groping, or in some instances, raping them.

    The men first surround their victim in circles. Some then sexually assault her, while others not directly involved watch or divert outsiders' attention to what is occurring.

    Sometimes the terrified victim - in a state of shock and unable to respond - is also robbed during the ordeal.

    And the attack usually goes unpunished because the large number of perpetrators and chaos of the attack means authorities are unable to identify those involved.

    There remains debate about what defines 'taharrush' - some still insist it is a reference to flirting - though scholars argue its definition changed after the attacks seen in Egypt from 2011 onwards.

    German authorities have stated this was the phenomenon seen in Cologne city centre on New Year, when hundreds of women reported they were sexually assaulted.

    The practice is only carried out in public and almost always at demonstrations or large public gatherings where the attackers find safety in numbers and disorder.

    The Arab phenomenon first came to the attention of the Western world when South African reporter Lara Logan, working for CBS, was set upon by a large group of men while reporting on celebrations in Tahrir Square, Egypt, in 2011.

    Logan recounted her ordeal in Egypt several months later on a 60 Minutes broadcast, describing how the baying crowd 'raped me with their hands'.

    The 44-year-old revealed terrifying details of the 40 minute-long February attack in Cairo's Tahrir Square, including how she became separated from members of her crew after someone in the frenzied 200-strong crowd shouted 'Let's take her pants off.'

    She said: 'Suddenly, before I even know what's happening, I feel hands grabbing my breasts, grabbing my crotch, grabbing me from behind. I mean, and it’s not one person and then it stops, it's like one person and another person and another person.

    'And I know Ray is right there, and he's grabbing at me and screaming, "Lara hold onto me, hold onto me".'

    t was revealed that as she was pulled into the frenzy the camera recorded her shouting 'Stop.' It was revealed that someone in the crowd falsely shouted out that she was an Israeli Jew.

    Angie Abdelmonem, a doctoral candidate at Arizona State University, recently published a study into the instances of 'taharrush' seen during the Egyptian Revolution.

    She said the 'violent nature of sexual harassment and assault in Tahrir Square captured global attention', but many locally initially believed the state was hiring thugs to harass women and stem public protest.

    'This [perception] shifted on February 11, the day Mubarak stepped down, with the mob assault and rape of CBS correspondent, Lara Logan,' she wrote.

    'Between 2011 and 2013, sexual harassment became common at protests in Tahrir Square, exemplified by a number of highly publicized violent attacks that demonstrate how women’s bodies became objectified and dehumanized during the uprising.'

    She goes on to conclude the lack of 'conceptual boundaries' of the term further blurred the lines of when acceptable flirtation became harassment.

    German police believe it was 'taharrush' committed in Cologne and other cities at New Year by Arab and North African men that led to hundreds of police complaints in the following weeks.

    German federal police told Die Welt that crimes are committed by groups of young men during large gatherings of people, such as demonstrations, and range from sexual harassment to rape.

    It was the first instance of the phenomenon having reached Europe, and as the scale of the attacks in the city slowly emerged, other centres, such as Zurich and Salzburg, reported similar crimes.

    A report from the Interior Ministry in North Rhine-Wesphalia (NRW) state, where Cologne lies, said 516 criminal complaints had been registered, 237 of which were of a sexual nature.

    Head of German Anti-Migrant Group Faces Prosecution for Wearing Anti-Rape T-Shirt

    The head of the anti-migrant PEGIDA movement in Germany faces prosecution for wearing an anti-rape T-shirt at a rally this weekend.

    Lutz Bachmann wore a “Rapefugees not welcome” to a rally after hundreds of women were sexually assaulted on New Year’s Eve.

    Germany accepted one million unvetted third world refugees in 2015. They are expecting another million refugees this year.

    The leader of the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident (PEGIDA) street protest movement is facing prosecution for wearing a t-shirt reading, “Rapefugees not welcome” – the slogan of the 4000-strong march in Cologne this weekend.

    Following the news of the mass migrant rape scandal that has gripped Europe, Lutz Bachmann and his PEGIDA movement organised the “Rapefugees Not Welcome” protest this Saturday in Cologne, stressing the importance of Western culture and the freedom and protection of women.

    But while the political establishment took four days to start getting to the bottom of the New Year’s Eve sexual assault orgy, they have wasted no time pursuing Mr. Bachmann for wearing a t-shirt that opposes rape by migrants.

    The Leipziger Volkszeitung newspaper has reported that Mr. Bachmann – who is no stranger to controversy – is being pursued by Green Party politician and lawyer Jurgen Kasek, who has called the t-shirt “sedition”.

    Mr. Kasek, speaking after he saw a picture of Mr. Bachmann wearing the t-shirt on Facebook (above) said: “That’s not a satire. That is sedition “, and has filed a complaint with Dresden’s prosecutor.

    Sedition:
    1. incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority
    2. the crime of saying, writing, or doing something that encourages people to disobey their government

    Crime:
    1. a grave offense especially against morality - MOST CERTAINLY RAPE IS THAT
    2. something reprehensible, foolish, or disgraceful - MOST CERTAINLY FORBIDDING FREE SPEECH IS THAT
