Having escaped the Russian war machine, female Ukrainian refugees face a new threat to their safety.
Wait, but diversity’s a strength, no?
Both Somali and Arab Muslim migrants tried to get in to where the Ukrainian women were staying. They’re so traumatized, they want to go back to war-torn Ukraine.
Why does this keep happening? In France, a Muslim quoted Qur’an while raping his victim. A survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK has said that her rapists would quote the Qur’an to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam. Thus it came as no surprise when Muslim migrants in France raped a girl and videoed the rape while praising Allah and invoking the Qur’an. In India, a Muslim gave a Qur’an and a prayer rug to the woman he was holding captive and repeatedly raping. And the victim of an Islamic State jihadi rapist recalled: “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God…He said that raping me is his prayer to God.” In India, a Muslim kidnapped and raped a 14-year-old Hindu girl, and forced her to read the Qur’an and Islamic prayers. In Pakistan, another Christian woman recounted that her rapist was also religious: “He threw me on the bed and started to rape me. He demanded I marry him and convert to Islam. I refused. I am not willing to deny Jesus and he said that if I would not agree he would kill me.” Rapists demanded that another girl’s family turn her over to them, claiming that she had recited the Islamic profession of faith during the rape and thus could not live among infidels.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
However, anyone who points all this out will be excoriated as a “racist” and an “Islamophobe,” and accordingly ignored.
More below the fold.
Turning Point USA founder and conservative firebrand Charlie Kirk has been locked out of his Twitter account until he deletes a tweet about male-to-female transgender Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services Rachel Levine.
“Richard Levine spent 54 years of his life as a man,” Kirk wrote in his tweet. “He had a wife and a family. He ‘transitioned’ to being a woman in 2011, Joe Biden appointed Levine to be a 4-Star Admiral and now USA Today has named ‘Rachel’ Levine as a ‘Woman of the Year.’ Where are the feminists?”
Ukrainian women in Sweden:
“Ukrainian women’s night of terror – Somalis enter the accommodation: ‘I’m so scared I want to go home,’” translated from “Ukrainska kvinnornas skräcknatt – somalier tog sig in på boendet: ”Jag är så rädd att jag vill åka hem,” Samnytt, March 19, 2022 (thanks to Medforth):
Thousands of Ukrainian women and children have fled to Sweden in recent weeks. Now Samnytt is the first media outlet to report that some of those who fled to Örebro want to return to the war in Ukraine. The reason is that, after an incident during the week when foreign men entered their homes, they do not feel safe.
When there are bombs, I know at least that I can go down to the basement and hide there, says one of the women.
Busloads of Ukrainian refugee women with children have arrived in Örebro in recent weeks. Several of them have been offered a bed at Örebro City Vandrarhem.
But Ukrainians do not feel safe in the hostel. The background is some incidents until Monday night when a number of unknown men, on several occasions, tried to get into the women.
Samnytt has spoken to one of the Ukrainian women at the hostel. We also talked to a female volunteer in Örebro who works with the women. None of them want us to print their names.
By talking to the two women, Samnytt has managed to create a picture of what happened on Monday night.
The first incident occurred at three o’clock at night. Then two Somali men started knocking on the front door of the hostel. Without opening the door, the Ukrainian woman tried to talk to the men outside.
They looked like African Americans, if I express myself politely. They were black people. Long and narrow with black skin color, she tells Samnytt.
She explained to the men that only Ukrainian women and children live in the hostel, but they claimed that they have a friend who lives there. After asking what her friend’s name was, she was able to establish that no such person lives in the hostel.
But the men did not give up. After a while, a third Somali man appeared outside the hostel. The women found the situation uncomfortable and went into their rooms and locked themselves in.
Slammed on the door
In a vague way, one or more of the Somali men then managed to enter the hostel.
They started knocking on the door of a woman who lives with her two small children aged two and four.
They were very scared. The four-year-old was silent, but the two-year-old screamed, the volunteer says.
They tried to get to her. The men spoke in a foreign language. She who lives in the room does not speak English, but recognizes English and understood that the men spoke another language.
Then came the Arabs
At five o’clock in the morning, a group of Arab men came instead and tried to enter the hostel.
On the other hand, they did not manage to enter the hostel, the volunteer says.
I’ve talked to the women. They are scared. In Germany, a Ukrainian refugee woman was gang-raped.
Confirmed by the hostel
That a group of men tried to enter the hostel is confirmed by an employee that Samnytt spoke to. From the hostel’s side, however, they try to tone down what happened.
Someone knocked on the door and wanted to find somewhere to stay overnight. They tried to find housing, says the employee.
In the middle of the night?
I have not talked to those who knocked on the door.
The hostel has now deployed security guards to keep track. The Ukrainian refugees have also been informed that they can either contact the hostel’s staff or call the police on telephone number 112 if they feel unsafe.
The police do not know about the incident
Ola Olsson is the officer on duty at the police in Örebro. He tells Samnytt that he does not know anything about the incident at the hostel on Monday night.
According to the volunteer that Samnytt spoke to, there is an explanation for this. The Ukrainian women did not dare to call the police because they were afraid of getting into trouble.
The interpreter told them that they are not allowed to call the police, because they are not registered with the Swedish Migration Board yet, the volunteer says.
According to information to Samnytt, however, a police report must later have been made via the police’s website.
