German teachers in hot water for warning schoolgirls: stay away from ‘often attractive’ male Muslim refugees

Telling the truth is apparently verboten in Germany, at least when advising schoolgirls to keep away from male Muslim refugees.

A teacher’s union magazine, the “Journal of the Philologists’ Association of Saxony-Anhalt,” is in hot water for publishing a statement from a group of teachers recommending that girls stay away from “often attractive Muslim men.”

According to a November 7 report in Deutsche Welle, when the German daily “Mitteldeutsche Zeitung” publicized the original article, liberal politicians attacked it as “fear-mongering.”

Stating that “an immigrant invasion is spilling over in Germany,” the article alleged that “young, strong, mostly Muslim … often uneducated men” are entering the country “under dubious pretenses,” and goes on to describe how innocent conversations in public places can lead to sexual assault.

State Green party leader Claudia Dalbert told the newspaper that the article ”is completely base, it serves prejudice and the far-right fringe” of the political spectrum.  Saxony-Anhalt’s education minister, Stephan Dorgerloh, accused the educators of “amplifying rumors, spreading half-truths, and exploiting its value as a union.”

But Dalbert and Dorgerloh couldn’t claim the fear isn’t there, or that incidents haven’t happened, because they have.

The Daily News reported in September about allegations of “a culture of rape and sexual abuse” being allowed to take hold in asylum centers across Germany.  And in Sweden, a 23-year-old woman was approached by friendly migrant teens at a park because she was crying.  After inviting her to visit a local “beauty spot,” they violently assaulted and raped her.

Since two of the three men who were charged claimed to be underage, their punishment was very light—six to nine months. Without records, no one could prove the men’s ages, even though the judge told the defendants he didn’t believe their claims of being between 13 and 16 years old.

Incidents and allegations like these aren’t rumors or half-truths, but the whole truth appears to be being suppressed.
