According to an editorial at the New York Times, it’s Germany’s fault that so many German women were sexually assaulted by Muslim migrants on New Year’s Eve.
Reports say that 18 of 31 suspects so far identified in New Year’s Eve attacks on women in Cologne, Germany, are there seeking asylum. But it’s really not their fault they committed the attacks. At least, that seems to be the take from contributing opinion writer Anna Sauerbrey, who wrote (emphasis added):
The real question we should be asking is not whether there is something inherently wrong with the refugees, but whether Germany is doing an effective job of integrating them — and if not, whether something can be done to change that.
Naturally, it didn’t sit too well with many.
