If you’re a Rebel regular, you know what happened in Cologne, Germany on New Year's Eve: Muslim men shot fireworks at the cathedral and into the crowd. They also assaulted and even raped German women.
But the whole thing was covered up by the mainstream media and the authorities for four days. It was only when videos and stories on social media became too numerous to ignore that the story broke.
It marked a turning point in Europe.
Last week, we went to Cologne as part of our week long fact-finding mission to Europe.
We talked to people in downtown Cologne, then outside the city centre, in the neighbourhood of Keupstrasse. Like Rosengard in Malmo, Sweden, Keupstrasse is in an all-Muslim neighbourhood.
I was really the most interested in speaking to the young people, the latest migrants. I asked them about the New Years Eve sexual assaults.
Well, that touched a sore spot…
(But they really love Angela Merkel!)
I started talking to two other men, and it turned out they weren’t Muslim.
They were Yazidis.
They slowly opened up to me about who they were, and about the fear they have — from Muslims.
(I knew a bit about Yazidis, but later in our trip, we’d learn a lot more.)
What do you think:
Do you think Cologne, or Germany as a whole, has come to terms with what happened on New Year’s Eve?
And how long do you think it will be, how many more unvetted, culturally inappropriate migrants will Canada take, before we have these same issues here?
