Poland: “Islamic Rape of Europe” Magazine Cover Signals Rising Awareness of Racial Threat
And, although the articles do not mention them, Jews are very worried. If the rally described by the Independent below is any indication — they should be.
A POPULAR RIGHT-WING Polish newsweekly, wSieci or “The Network,” published a deeply provocative magazine cover this week. It shows a young blonde women, garbed loosely in the flag of the European Union, being groped by three men. Only the six swarthy arms and hands of the assailants are in view, but the message is clear and barely needs the brutal cover line: “The Islamic rape of Europe.”
According to the Daily Mail, the Polish magazine said it was focusing on “what the media and the Brussels elite are hiding from the citizens of Europe.” An editorial in its pages, entitled “Hell Europe,” inveighed against a culture of “tolerance and political correctness” that supposedly led to the grim scenes on New Year’s Eve in the German city of Cologne and other northern European town centers.
Groups of men, many apparently of Arab or North African descent, went on a shocking criminal rampage that led to hundreds of complaints to the police of rape, sexual harassment and other abuse. The incidents fed into an already growing backlash against European policies welcoming migrants and refugees, particularly an influx from war-torn Syria.

It didn’t take Twitter users very long to spot the parallels. The Polish magazine’s rendition of a young white woman, violated by hairy, dark-skinned men, suggests especially to Jews, echoes of nationalist imagery of the mid-20th century.
See, for example, the poster in the tweet above of a World War II-era Italian fascist call to arms, showing a dark foreign soldier seizing a European woman. Or see the National-Socialist-era imagery in the tweet below of a scheming Jewish spider eyeing a blonde fräulein or a French colonial soldier groping another girl.

These are not isolated images. Following World War I, there was great consternation about the presence of French African troops occupying a defeated Germany.That occupation brought with it the sexual threat of rape and miscegenation by the African soldiers, and fanned white outrage on both sides of the Atlantic.
On a visit to Germany in 1920, the well-known British writer E.D. Morel lamented the presence of “thrusting barbarians — barbarians belonging to a race inspired by Nature…with tremendous sexual instincts — into the heart of Europe.” In 1921, 12,000 people rallied around Madison Square Garden in New York City and submitted a petition to Congress declaring “the Moral sense of the American people demands the immediate withdrawal of the uncivilized French Colored troops.”
Adolf Hitler, writing in Mein Kampf, raged at “the Jews who bring the Negro into the Rhineland, always with the same secret thought and clear aim of ruining the hated white race by the necessarily resulting bastardization, throwing it down from its cultural and political height, and himself rising to be its master.” …
In the past year, Poland has taken a dramatic turn, and its leading politicians have made loud and conspicuous statements on the threat posed by Syrian refugees.
An anti-refugee rally in the city of Wroclaw in November seemed to best capture the sort of populism on display. Thousands of protesters marched, denouncing an E.U. proposal that would see the country admit some 7,000 refugees. They chanted against Islam and migrants and for “God, Honor and Fatherland.”
And then they burnt an effigy — not of a Muslim or a refugee, but a Hasidic Jew wrapped in the flag of the European Union.
