Right, lets get our facts straight shall we? (with respect to Norway at least)

Muslims make up about 2 % of the population on a national basis, most of whom live in 14% muslim inner city Oslo. (pretty much all immigrants live here)

In inner city Oslo 72 out of 111 reported rapes (not a huge sample) were on some year reportedly comitted by people of non western origin. Many of these were probably muslim, as a large portion of non-western Norwegians are. (only guessing though) Still emensely out of proportion to population.

While muslims make up such a small fraction of the population though, especially outside of Oslo, the issue gets little coverage. Criminall muslim elements in oslo are also sufficiently concentrated to form gangs, not a problem elsewhere.

This issue isn't as big as some make it out to be, not in Norway at least.

And don't try to brand me as an appologist, I am in favor both of tight immigration policies and increased sentences across the board.

Oh, and Norway has more guns per capita than the US I think, we're one of those countries gun-nuts like to cite as having both low murder rate and a lot of guns. I also understand our gun-laws are less restrictive than yours.

I'm not going to brand you as anything newbie.

The article suggests that a disproportionate number of rapes in the country are being committed by muslim immigrants and gives a few facts to back up that stance. I agree with the article.

Given the track record of how muslim males treat of women, I would stay the article is accurate.

You can take your statistics elsewhere. I'm not interested. Statistics lie.

As far as armed defense, that's not about race or religion. I would advise every woman to arm and train themselves.

The simple FACT of the matter is that a well armed citizenry reduces violent crime.
