Racial Gang-Rape: The Sequel
Last year, Sam Francis reported on two different cases of gang rape overseas. (Racial Gang-Rape: Another Diversity Disaster)
In Australia, gangs of Lebanese youths were targeting white girls – "Anglo-Celtic" in Australian parlance. In France, gangs of North African youths were gang-raping French girls.
Curiously, the phenomenon hasn't had much press in the U.S. So this is a VDARE.COM follow-up.
In the Australian case, Miranda Devine writes in the Sydney Sun-Herald that the Judge who gave lenient sentences and found no racial motive in the Australian case has been shown by further testimony before the Supreme Court to have been willfully blind. Furthermore, the prosecution had censored the "victim impact statement" to remove references to the racial aspect of the crime. ["Racist rapes: Finally the truth comes out," July 14, 2002]
The horrifying custom of gang-rape that North Africans in the French banlieues call the tournante has been noticed in a recent Weekly Standard article ("Allah Mode," by Christopher Caldwell, July 15,2002), and been the subject of a French movie, La Squale. The movie, which "shocked a nation with its horrific scenes of gang rape," tells of the "code of silence" in the North African society that has been transplanted to the suburbs of France.
One of the female leads in the movie is from the banlieu. She told the BBC's Rosie Goldsmith that the movie is totally realistic.
"Two of my friends," she explained, "have been gang-raped. One Turkish girl and one white French girl. The boys jumped on them, one after another. In five minutes it was over but those five minutes have ruined their lives. I am afraid most of the time that it could happen to me."
These stories have been unfit to print because they don't fit the Establishment media template. The media thinks of Third World women as the victims of the "white male patriarchy," rather than as the victims of Third World men, which is usually the case. As for the concept of French, Australian, or American women as victims of Third World men, it just doesn't register.
Feminists have been talking for years about rape in America and the attitudes of American males towards rape. But it remains clear that America is, even without feminist reforms to the judicial system, the most chivalrous nation on Earth as regards the protection of women.
Outside the U.S., it's a different story.
The title of a recent story from Afghanistan, in which a woman was sentenced to be gang-raped by a tribal council, says it all: Account of Punjab Rape Tells of a Brutal Society. (New York Times, July 14,2002)
A July 23 New York Times story tells of the murder of young Kurdish woman in Sweden. She had assimilated, but her father hadn't. She started dating a Swede. Her father saw her holding his hand. She fled for her life, but couldn't escape, and was killed. (Lost in Sweden: A Kurdish Daughter Is Sacrificed)
In Australia, Paul Sheehan wrote in the Sydney Morning Herald (August 29, 2001) that the authorities seemed to be suppressing the truth about the link between ethnicity and crime for fear of starting a jihad against Muslims. I think he meant a crusade, not a jihad. But the principle's the same.
Sheehan also argued that lying about these problems would make them worse:
It is not the truth that has set this debate alight. We can handle the truth. The truth is not a threat to our society. It is the lies that burn so brightly.
The truth is, however, a threat to immigration policies that value multiculturalism and diversity to the point of being careless of the rights of women – let alone, of course, the national interest.
