Rubin: It's a terrible situation in Europe

Syrian refugees in GermanyA U.S.-born Israeli author and expert on the Middle East doesn't think anyone should be surprised by a German study that shows the recent influx of mostly young male Islamic migrants has led to an increase in violent crime in the country.

The study uses figures from the northern state of Lower Saxony to examine the impact refugee arrivals made on crime in 2015 and 2016, a period when the number of violent crimes reported increased by almost ten and a half percent. The authors conclude that 92 percent of the additional crimes recorded could be attributed to the increase in refugee numbers. (See earlier story.)

The study, which was published by the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, says most of the refugees came to Germany from Muslim countries that are "characterized by male dominance" and an acceptance of a "macho culture" that can justify violence.

Rubin, David"In the Islamic world, women are abused," notes David Rubin, the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh. "Women are sexually abused, physically abused, and emotionally abused, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that you suddenly let these young single males out of a box and think they're not going to go into a country like Germany, where it's a very liberal society, and they're not going to go crazy. This is part of their culture, that women are their play things."

And Rubin points out that other European countries have already seen this happen.

"We've seen it in Sweden; we've seen it in Denmark -- in Sweden, especially, where the number of rapes of Swedish women by Muslim men has been increasing in leaps and bounds, and the liberal society does not know how to deal with it," the author reports. "And they do ridiculous things like raising the retirement age for men because they have to be able to support all these young Muslim men that are flocking into to their country."

"It's a terrible situation in Europe," he concludes.
