No country has been more welcoming of Middle Eastern immigrants than Germany, which has looked to a influx of one million new residents a year as a solution to its demographic population implosion. But now Germany, along with other European nations, is having second thoughts.
Even sympathizers of the refugees are having problems with what happened in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. In the square between the train station and the magnificent cathedral (a place I’ve actually been to with my friends who live there, including at another crowded fire works night), around a thousand men of “Arab or Northern African appearance” sexually assaulted every non-hijab wearing woman in sight. They crowded around women and groped and robbed them, with reports of at least two rapes.
