Thanks to Stakhanov, I am pointed to this long piece by Soeren Kern on sexual assaults inside and outside German refugee shelters. He contends German police are 'downplaying a massive spike' in these incidents:
The problem of rapes and sexual assaults in German refugee shelters is a nationwide problem.
In Bavaria, women and girls housed at a refugee shelter in Bayernkaserne, a former military base in Munich, are subject to rape and forced prostitution on a daily basis, according to women's rights groups. Although the facility has separate dorm rooms for women, the doors cannot be locked and men control access to the sanitary facilities.
Approximately 80% of the refugees/migrants at the shelter are male, according to Bavarian Broadcasting (Bayerischer Rundfunk), which reports that the price for sex with female asylum seekers is ten euros. A social worker described the facility this way: "We are the biggest brothel in Munich."
On August 6, police revealed that a 13-year-old Muslim girl was raped by another asylum seeker at a refugee facility in Detmold, a city in west-central Germany. The girl and her mother reportedly fled their homeland to escape a culture of sexual violence; as it turns out, the man who raped the girl is from their country.
Although the rape took place in June, police kept silent about it for nearly three months, until local media published a story about the crime. According to an editorial comment in the newspaperWestfalen-Blatt, police are refusing to go public about crimes involving refugees and migrants because they do not want to give legitimacy to critics of mass migration.
Police chief Bernd Flake countered that the silence was aimed at protecting the victim. "We will continue with this policy [of not informing the public] whenever crimes are committed in refugee facilities," he said.
Over the weekend of June 12-14, a 15-year-old girl housed at a refugee shelter in Habenhausen, a district in the northern city of Bremen, was repeatedly raped by two other asylum seekers. The facility has been has been described as a "house of horrors" due to the spiraling violence perpetrated by rival gangs of youth from Africa and Kosovo. A total of 247 asylum seekers are staying at the shelter, which has a capacity for 180 and a cafeteria with seating for 53.
Meanwhile, the raping of German women by asylum seekers is becoming commonplace. Following are a few select cases just from 2015:
On September 11, a 16-year-old girl was raped by an unidentified "dark-skinned man speaking broken German" close to a refugee shelter in the Bavarian town of Mering. The attack occurred while the girl was walking home from the train station.
On August 13, police arrested two Iraqi asylum seekers, aged 23 and 19, for raping an 18-year-old German woman behind a schoolyard in Hamm, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia.
On July 26, a 14-year-old boy was sexually assaulted inside the bathroom of a regional train in Heilbronn, a city in southwestern Germany. Police are looking for a "dark skinned" man between the ages of 30 and 40 who has an "Arab appearance." Also on July 26, a 21-year-old Tunisian asylum seeker raped a 20-year-old woman in the Dornwaldsiedlung district of Karlsruhe. Police kept the crime secret until August 14, when a local paper went public with the story.
On June 9, two Somali asylum seekers, aged 20 and 18, were sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison for raping a 21-year-old German woman in Bad Kreuznach, a town in Rhineland-Palatinate, on December 13, 2014.
On June 5, a 30-year-old Somali asylum seeker called "Ali S" was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison for attempting to rape a 20-year-old woman in Munich. Ali had previously served a seven-year sentence for rape, and had been out of prison for only five months before he attacked again. In an effort to protect the identity of Ali S, a Munich newspaper referred to him by the more politically correct "Joseph T."
On May 22, a 30-year-old Moroccan man was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison for attempting to rape a 55-year-old woman in Dresden. On May 20, a 25-year-old Senegalese asylum seeker was arrested after he attempted to rape a 21-year-old German woman at the Stachus, a large square in central Munich.
On April 16, a 21-year-old asylum seeker from Iraq was sentenced to three years and ten months in prison for raping a 17-year-old girl at festival in the Bavarian town of Straubing in August 2014. On April 7, a 29-year-old asylum seeker was arrested for the attempted rape of a 14-year-old girl in the town of Alzenau.
On March 17, two Afghan asylum seekers aged 19 and 20 were sentenced to five years in prison for the "particularly abhorrent" rape of a 21-year-old German woman in Kirchheim, a town near Stuttgart, on August 17, 2014.
On February 11, a 28-year-old asylum seeker from Eritrea was sentenced to four years in prison for raping a 25-year-old German woman in Stralsund, along the Baltic Sea, in October 2014.
On February 1, a 27-year-old asylum seeker from Somalia was arrested after attempting to rape women in the Bavarian town of Reisbach.
On January 16, a 24-year-old Moroccan immigrant raped a 29-year-old woman in Dresden.
Meanwhile, parents are being warned to look after their daughters. Police in the Bavarian town of Mering, where a 16-year-old-girl was raped on September 11, have issued a warning to parents not to allow their children to go outside unaccompanied. They have also advised women not to walk to or from the train station alone because of its proximity to a refugee shelter.
Now, as to the source. The Gatestone Institute is located in the US and officially non-partisan. It is, however, run by American neo-conservatives, both famous and obscure. Its chairman is John Bolton. That should give you an idea of its political orientation. The author, Soeren Kern, has ties to center-right think tanks and European political parties, but also has extensive professional experience and education, and being a joint German-American citizen, understands German.
That is, he's not an extremist or fanatic. He's a journalist and researcher with a conservative political orientation.
I checked a few of the links he provided, and the translations are reliable. The one quibble I have is with this quotation: "Police chief Bernd Flake countered that the silence was aimed at protecting the victim. "We will continue with this policy [of not informing the public] whenever crimes are committed in refugee facilities," he said. This was in In context, the police chief was referring to sex crimes involving children, and arguing that it was the general policy of Detmold police not to report these, and that this policy would also extend to refugee shelters. However, in the same article, he goes on to undermine the point by adding the argument that the shelters would be 'filled with yellow-press journalists' if the rape of children inside them were reported.
Remember, Germany is in the process of allowing uncontrolled mass migration of 70% young men from some of the world's most conservative cultures. Anyone who's traveled in sexually conservative third-world countries immediately senses the bottled-up sexual energy. Aside from hands and faces, there is basically no uncovered female skin on display either in real life or in public images. The population is disproportionately young and male, and extra-marital intercourse is still considered a huge scandal outside a tiny fraction of the urban elite. So the only legal way to have regular sex is through marriage. But getting married takes resources that are out of many young men's reach.
So they turn to online pornography, which should hardly come as a surprise. And believe me, the behavior of many ordinary European women -- wearing tight clothes, showing all that skin, walking around unaccompanied -- would get an average woman shunned, at the very least. Therefore, many ignorant young men from these cultures believe all European women are promiscuous. Several times, young men have asked me what it's like in Germany, with all those hot-to-trot women everywhere. "You must be making love every night different woman, no?" an Egyptian asked me once.
This is not to excuse sex crimes in any way -- anyone who commits one should be sent to prison for a long time. My point is rather this. We now have a situation in which Germany:
(1) allowed uncontrolled mass migration of hundreds of thousands of sexually-frustrated young men from conservative cultures who are now thousands of miles away from the moderating influence of family and neighborhood; and then
(2) housed them in improvised, overcrowded accommodations with inadequate security and no locks; and put them
(3) right next to young females in the shelter, and with ready access to "promiscuous" German women on the outside.
Now that these fateful decisions have been made. The consequences could and should have been foreseen by any responsible policy-maker with any worldly experience. Many of these crimes could have been prevented if Germany had taken a responsible, controlled approach to immigration. And as long as the authorities keep actively trying to cover up the resulting problems -- which they've admitted doing -- the German xenophobic right will continue to reap the benefits by styling itself the only citizens "concerned" enough to tell the real truth.
This is going to get worse before it gets better.
