It was New Year’s eve and thousands were celebrating in the streets of Cologne and Hamburg in Germany when groups of men from Muslim countries in the Middle East decided to surround women and grope and steal their wallets of cell phones and even assault them in public. It is clear these offensive males were from Middle Eastern countries and they were engaged in public criminal acts. The result is damage to the prospects for refuge in Germany.
Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has stood solidly with the rights of refugees is shocked and now notes there might be a conflict between the “coexistence of cultures.” The pressure has now risen on her to take action. Those who suffer will be refugees seeking safety from the horror of war. Unfortunately, they must now confront the horror of their sons who decided to endanger the lives of Muslim refugees.
