Last year, the festival saw at least 11 sex attacks, three of which led to arrests; the year before, nearly 40 young girls complained of being sexually harassed or abused by men often described as “foreign”.
One victim, 17-year-old Alexandra Larsson, described her attackers saying: “They were probably immigrants. I hate to say it. But it is the truth.”

It has been said a nation can have either welfare or open borders — but not both — in the same way one can have a cool air-conditioned room in a blazing desert or an open door — but not both. It is the inequality between the outside and inside temperatures that the door is intended to preserve.
The problem of keeping the room cool while leaving the door open is now consuming Angela Merekel’s European Union as the refugee problem grows in political size. Can the EU have no internal borders if it lacks an external one? If there’s no way of keeping benefits in, what is the meaning of out?

Damn! If Progressives don’t like to double down.
The 583 delegates of Die Linke (The Left) voted on Saturday in Leipzig in favor of the party executive’s motion which included its refugee policy. The party has a formal commitment for all who are looking for protection in Germany not to be turned away.
It’s great that the Iraqis caught him and are willing to send him back. But the question remains: how did the German authorities manage to screw up and let him and his family fly out of the country?
The man wanted for questioning over the murder of a 14-year-old girl in Mainz was taken into custody in Iraq on Friday after fleeing Germany last week. The case has led to an outpouring of grief and anger in Germany.
Another violent attack on Jews took place in Berlin Saturday night at Bahnhof Zoo station, according to Bild.
The newspaper reported: “A disgusting, brutal, anti-Semitic incident took place at Bahnhof Zoo last night. The victims: three young Jews. The perpetrators: three young Arabs. They said, among other things: ‘This is our town, our precinct. If I see you again, I’ll slit your throat, you [expletive] Jew.’”

Obviously, not all Swedes love their refugee neighbors.
Christian Democrats leader Ebba Busch Thor has proposed paying immigrant families a total of SEK 160,000 ($18,500) to leave Sweden. The cost of letting them stay would be much higher, she argued.
The Christian Democrats, who have fared badly in a series of recent opinion polls leading up to the general election slated for this autumn, having even fallen below the four-percent barrier in some, have come up with a series of proposal pertaining to the immigration question to attract the fleeing voters, the news outlet Samtiden reported.
The party aims to contradict the official narrative of recent decades that immigration is largely beneficial for a Swedish society that cannot survive without immigrants. The Christian Democrats, however, are prepared to pay off immigrants who have had their asylum applications rejected to make them more eager to leave the country. Otherwise, the party pointed out, a “shadow society” may emerge in Sweden.
A whole family of immigrants can thus be offered as much as SEK 160,000 ($18,500) to leave Sweden. An individual adult, however, may get as much as SEK 60,000 ($7,000).
While some found the proposal strange, as these people technically do not even have the right to be in the country, the Christian Democrats motivate their proposal that it is much more expensive to let the immigrants stay.
WASHINGTON — FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday that the bureau is tracking several hundred homegrown terror suspects, not counting those linked to a terror group or domestic extremist groups such as white supremacists.
“In every state in the nation who have been inspired by ISIS or al-Qaeda or similar groups, and radicalize, no longer by traveling to training camps, but via the internet through videos, or private chat rooms, or other means. How is the FBI countering that threat?” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) asked at the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Subcommittee hearing to examine the FBI’s annual budget request. “It seems to be very difficult to identify these individuals.”
Wray told the senator she put her finger “on what I would call sort of our highest counterterrorism priority at the moment.”
“We have about 1,000 investigations into exactly the kind of people you’re describing, covering all 50 states as I’m sitting here right now. And that’s not even counting, you know, the al-Qaeda investigations, the traditional ISIS investigations, the domestic terrorism investigations, but just the group you’re talking about,” he said.

There were sharp increases in the number of homicides, up 44 per cent, knife crime offences, up 21 per cent, and violent robberies, up 36 per cent.
Police said there were 157 homicides in the last 12 months — including eight deaths in London’s terror attacks — compared with 109 in the previous period. Senior officers say the increase in the murder rate is a real concern.

In another thinly veiled dig at Eastern European countries that have opposed Brussels on migration and pushed back against criticism over their alleged backsliding on rule of law, Macron called out the “music of nationalism [that] is resounding everywhere in Europe,” adding that division is “like leprosy.”
