Of the fifteen culture-enrichers arrested for molesting and groping women on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, fourteen were identified as Syrian. But that should really be “Syrian” in quote marks, because that designation just means that they managed to acquire a Syrian passport somewhere before they arrived in Germany. By now it’s probably easier to pick up a Syrian passport in Istanbul than it is a fifth of Jim Beam.

Sex Attacks in Cologne: “Frau Merkel Invited Me”
Contrary to police reports, the Cologne police did in fact arrest fifteen asylum seekers during the violent New Year’s Eve rampage. “Out of these fifteen, fourteen are from Syria and one is from Afghanistan. That is the truth. Even if it hurts”, said the chief of police to the Kölner Express. Those persons were in Germany “definitely only a few days or weeks”, he says. “I’ve had these young women right next to me, crying, their underwear torn from them after the mob let them go. Those are pictures that truly shocked me and it will take time for everybody to learn to process this.”
With these statements, the Chief directly contradicts Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker’s statements, who on Tuesday claimed that there was no proof that refugees were part of the massive sexual attacks launched against German women. According to one internal police protocol, says Bild Zeitung, it additionally states: “The police forces couldn’t process every incident, every attack, every crime, etc., because there was simply too much going on, all at the same time.”
“A Few Thousand, Mostly Male Persons With Migration Background”
The police patrol officers were informed by “agitated citizens with shocked and crying children in hand” about the attacks around the train station. At that point, “several thousand mostly male persons with migration backgrounds” had accumulated in front of the Cologne Dome [cathedral].
At around 10:45pm the situation began to escalate: “Women with or without companions were found literally to have been forced to run through a gauntlet made up of the mass of extremely inebriated men in a way that defies description.” Victims and witnesses had been massively and on a grand scale intimidated by the Arab men.
When police tried to intervene, the foreigners reacted with statements such as “I am Syrian, you have to treat me nice! Frau Merkel invited me,” it is said in one report. Meanwhile the number of the assaults reported to the police has risen to 150. Three-quarters of the reports have sexual components. The press office of the Cologne City Police was not available for commentary.
