Skip to comments.The German Feministsí Dilemma (rapes by Muslim immmigrants)

Berlin A brutal murder case has gripped Germany: On June 6 the body of a 14-year-old girl, Susanna Maria Feldmann, was found in Wiesbaden. She had been raped and strangled. Two days later her alleged assailant, Ali Bashar, a 20-year-old asylum seeker from Iraq, was apprehended in Iraqi Kurdistan, where he had fled. He reportedly confessed to the murder.
The case is just the latest in a string of murders and assaults by asylum seekers against women in Germany. In October 2016, Maria Ladenburger, a 19-year-old university student, was raped and killed by an Afghan asylum seeker. In December 2017, Mia Valentin, a 15-year-old girl, was stabbed to death in a drugstore by her ex-boyfriend, an Afghan migrant.
The cases have added fuel to the far rights fiery anti-immigrant rhetoric. And it has created a dilemma for Germanys liberal feminists: How can they fight against violence without supporting anti-immigrant resentments? Or to put it even more bluntly: Is it even possible to defend pluralism and womens rights at the same time in Germany today?
Violence against women committed by immigrant men first became a topic of debate after hundreds of women were sexually harassed and abused by groups of young men, most of whom were immigrants from North African countries, at Colognes main train station on New Years Eve in 2015. Since then there has been a steady drumbeat of stories, ranging from harassment in the streets to rape and murder, across Germany.
The far right has exploited these cases to support its call to defend Western culture against Islamization. Men from Muslim societies generally hold negative and denigrating images of women, the far right claims, and these hideous crimes make clear how much of a threat they are to the Occident in general and to women in particular.

It’s not the same, these are manly men rapists, not native pussymen...
Stupid people encounter many things that seem contradictory.
Interesting that in the NYT’s world being against immigrants raping and killing your women makes you “far right”.

The solution is obvious. Ban reporting on the crimes and jail anyone who dares to do so.

Yeah the right claims. nothing says we believe women are equal better than making women wear tents and forbidding them to drive or vote or be educated or...
Mind-aching mental gymnastics to avoid stating the obvious.
“Victim” Feminists have no actual interest in improving the status of women anywhere. It would cost them their narrative.
“The Far Right has exploited these cases”
I freaking despise these sons of bitches so much! Proof that your Government is committing Genocide against you is NOT “exploiting” anything. Exploitation is the Left standing on top of still warm high-school corpses to call for Gun Control!
Similar to the Bill Clinton rape dilemma.
This is a pure “opinion” article written by a progressive. Nothing new...everything is “nuanced”...
I don't care WHAT the gun laws are in Germany, or France or England.
You'll spend a lifetime as a whack job from the trauma of rape, probably causing more harm to fellow humans ...
or the possible not guilty verdict at a trial
or time in jail, untouched because you are now a proud killer of one of Satan's minions.
COWERING IN FEAR AND DOING NOTHING STRENGTHENS EVIL.
Wiesbaden is such a beautiful city. It’s a shame that getman men have been castrated and don’t realize they are supposed to ptotect their women and girls.
German women are learning that hairy legs & armpits and bad body odor are no deterrent to Muzzie scumbag goat f***ers.
"....Finding an effective remedy always needs to be preceded by a careful analysis of the causes. Taking into account the background of the perpetrators is a necessity, however uncomfortable. Whoever addresses the topic, however, walks a thin line. Conservatives like Ms. Klöckner carefully weave in allusions to the Decline of the West. What will our country look like in 20 years, she asks, given hundreds of thousands of young men who live in our country and have never heard of womens rights? This sort of rhetoric is a dog whistle to the far right, even though Ms. Klöckner and others deny it. But to be fair, nuance is very hard to convey in a public discourse that is extremely polarized and characterized by mutual fearmongering and trivialization. And yet it is important that feminists try to walk this line and start to take seemingly impossible positions: defending the religious freedom of Muslim women who want to wear head scarves, while helping girls who are forced to do so, and addressing the fact that some men newly immigrated from Arab countries hold misogynist views while stressing this is probably not the key factor that leads to crimes against women. In this position, liberal feminists will never look like they are right. But they will be right."
So.............. rape and murder committed by a person coming from a society which is riff with sexism is somehow not so bad as a rape and murder by someone raised in Germany?
But feminists have been telling us for years how our WESTERN SOCIETIES are filled with misogynists who don't treat women with respect. Does that mean we should all get a pass for these horrific crimes? Since when does the the country of their birth somehow excuse barbaric behavior?
Betcha a dollar to a weiner schnitzel it will get
Not quite as bad tho as when the Russians were there...yet.
“Interesting that in the NYTs world being against immigrants raping and killing your women makes you far right.
Makes sense when you realize the left is against everything good, decent, wholesome and productive.
Makes you wonder why he was seeking asylum, when he could so easily flee back there to avoid criminal penalties... /sarcasm
Wouldn’t be a dilemma if I ruled the world.
