A Silent Epidemic, A Frighening Response

Found an important and disturbing FrontPage magazine article by Sharon Lapkin. Here is what I took away:
A Meeting of Cultures:

In Australia, Norway, Sweden and other Western nations, there is a distinct race-based crime in motion being ignored by the diversity police: Islamic men are raping Western women for ethnic reasons. We know this because the rapists have openly declared their sectarian motivations.
In Norway and Sweden, journalist Fjordman warns of a rape epidemic. Police Inspector Gunnar Larsen stated that the steady
increase of rape-cases and the link to ethnicity are clear, unmistakable trends.
Two out of three persecutions for rape in Oslo are immigrants with a non-Western background and 80 percent of the victims are Norwegian womenIn Sweden, according to translator for Jihad Watch, Ali Dashti, “Gang rapes, usually involving Muslim immigrant males and native Swedish girls, have become commonplace.” A few weeks ago she said, “Five Kurds brutally raped a 13-year-old Swedish girl.In France, Samira Bellil broke her silence – after enduring years of repeated gang rapes in one of the Muslim populated public housing projects – and wrote a book, In the hell of the tournantes, that shocked France. Describing how gang rape is rampant in the banlieues, she explained to Time that, “any neighborhood girl who smokes, uses makeup or wears attractive clothes is a whore.”

A Plea for cross-cultural Understanding:

In Australia's New South Wales Supreme Court in December 2005, a visiting Pakistani rapist testified that his victims had no right to say no, because they were not wearing a headscarf.

A Nuanced, Tolerant Response:

This phenomenon of Islamic sexual violence against women should be treated as the urgent, violent, repressive epidemic it is. Instead, journalists, academics, and politicians ignore it, rationalize it, or ostracize those who dare discuss it. In Australia, when journalist Paul Sheehan reported honestly on the Sydney gang rapes, he was called a racist and accused of stirring up anti-Muslim hatred. And when he reported in his Sydney Morning Herald column that there was a high incidence of crime amongst Sydney’s Lebanese community, fellow journalist, David Marr sent him an e-mail stating, “That is a disgraceful column that reflects poorly on us all at the Herald.”

A Proposed Solution (The Punchline !):

Oslo Professor of Anthropology, Unni Wikan, said Norwegian women
must take responsibility for the fact that Muslim men find their manner of dress provocative. And since these men believe women are esponsible for rape, she stated, the women must adapt to the multicultural society around them

Oh... My ... Fugging... JHVH...
I wonder what the "anywhere, anytime, wearing whatever I like" crowd of "reclaim the night" feminists would make of all this.
Read the whole stark, damning thing, another great FrontPage magazine article. And send to a leftie feminist, if you still keep such company.

In a further cross-cultural coup of mutual understanding and tolerance arising from this very post, the Aussie blogsphere's Number 2 Ann Coulter fan (but not in THAT way, unlike the No.1 fan), the Gentle Jensenite Gentile for Geezus Manny finally found out what a yarmulke is.

Now the "sheet with a hole in it" is another matter entirely, and a question for another day...
