Magazine causes outrage showing white woman being sexually attacked by 'migrants'

Readers have compared the images with fascist propaganda in Nazi Germany and Mussolini’s Italy, which used images of women being attacked by Jewish and North African men

Latest front cover of the magazine stirred great controversy, reports Kirsty Major in her article for Independent. Apparently, the image of an abused women should have represented the threat of sexual assaults have been perpetrated by migrant and refugee men against European women. The headline reads: “Islamic Rape of Europe” and newsstand claims that the edition will reveal the information that is purposefully conceived from EU citizens by media.

Major continues: “The 1,000 reports of theft, sexual assault and rape of women at Cologne’s central train station on New Year’s Eve led to calls for stronger immigration controls.” However, the security officials have admitted not only the majority of the assaults were rather a theft than a sexual offence, but also that only three out of 58 suspects have claimed for the asylum as a refugee from Syria or Iraq.

The author of the controversial wSieci (The Network) article declares that this unfortunate outcome was inevitable since the two opposite religions, that is to say, Islam and Christianity, clashed in a deadly battle. “He believes that whilst Muslims are actively promoting this war, Europeans are engineering their own downfall by ignoring the negative impacts of multiculturalism. Quoting historian Arnold Toynbee, he writes: “Civilisations die from suicide, not by murder”. Other articles in the magazine include “Does Europe Want to Commit Suicide” and “The Hell of Europe”, Major writes.

The article came after the disclosure of Poland, Hungary, Czech, Slovakia governments’ intention to support Balkan countries in their decision to close their borders with Greece in order to stem the steady torrent of those fleeing war.

Major concludes: “wSieci has a track record of controversial front covers, one depicting Angela Merkel as Mother Theresa and another portraying their then Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz wearing a burqa and carrying bombs.”

EXPERT OPINION

Joshua Tartakovsky

The facts in this article are incorrect.

It is said regarding the Cologne sex attacks: “security officials have admitted not only the majority of the assaults were rather a theft than a sexual offence, but also that only three out of 58 suspects have claimed for the asylum as a refugee from Syria or Iraq.”

But in an article on Breitbart, Left Media Migrant Rape Cover-Up: HuffPo, Indy, AND United Nations Claim Cologne Attackers ‘Not Refugees’, German Prosecutor: ‘Total Nonsense’ (Feb. 15 2016), Raheem Kassam and Liam Deacon, reported that [my emphasis in bold]:

“Mainstream media outlets have been blasted for peddling “total nonsense” today as left-wing newspapers coalesced to claim with one voice that “only three” of the suspects involved in Cologne’s mass migrant rape on New Year’s Eve were recent migrants or refugees.”

But Cologne’s prosecutor, Ulrich Bremer, has said that the claim is “total nonsense” after an interview with German paper Die Welt this weekend was misinterpreted and reported in a way that the left-wing outlets wanted, rather than what the truth was.”

“The Huffington Post, the Independent, theMetro, and Russia Today all jumped on clumsy reporting from liberal outlets on the European continent, going so far as to heavily editorialise their news copy on the issue.”
