Tolerance and non-discrimination II
Intervention on the topic: Prevention of violence against women and children
BPE Austria is concerned about a rape wave that is currently taking place especially in the countries of northern Europe as expressed in our paper on violence against women and children.
Ladies and Gentlemen, rape is one of the most humiliating crimes against a woman (and a man) and several forms of rape – like gang rape and grooming – have emerged in the OSCE participating states especially in northern Europe.
Today Sweden has the second highest rape rate in the world, in most cases the perpetrator is a Muslim immigrant.
In the United Kingdom child grooming has grown rapidly in the past few years. British children are being sexually abused by Muslim paedophile gangs.
For decades social workers, teachers, politicians and the media have downplayed the severity of the crimes perpetrated against British children because they were afraid of being accused of “Islamophobia” or racism. This constitutes an open violation of the OSCE commitments.
In addition to the high numbers, BPE-Austria is concerned over the apparent pattern that the native majority population is targeted by Muslim immigrants, a trend that calls for more research and investigation. Therefore BPE-Austria recommends for participating States (among others):
• that law enforcement is encouraged to do their best, and that lack of proper investigation must be treated as complicity to crime. Fear of being labeled ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobic’ is no sound excuse.
