Attacks in Cologne fuel anger

A large number of women were robbed and sexually molested by groups of men on New Year's Eve in Cologne and other German cities. The police have received complaints from more than 90 women who all claim that the perpetrators were of Arab or North African descent. But blanket judgements should be avoided, the centre-right daily Der Tagespiegel warns: "This is the worst-case scenario right-wing circles have been waiting for. What happened in Cologne and elsewhere on New Year's Eve could dangerously fuel the anger at refugees, and even poison relations with long-standing immigrant communities. ... Of course there are machos - and even violent one - among the migrants. And some refugees come from a culture where women are not very respected. But for one thing the identities of the thieves and gropers in Cologne are still unknown. And for another, even immigrants are not a homogeneous group. Blanket condemnations are just as unhelpful as blanket commendations."
