Is Germany's Migrant Rape Crisis A "Failure Of The State"?

Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute,

The rape and murder of a 14-year-old Jewish girl by a failed Iraqi asylum seeker has cast a renewed spotlight on Germany's migrant rape crisis, which has continued unabated for years amid official complicity and public apathy.

Thousands of women and children have been raped or sexually assaulted in Germany since Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed into the country more than one million mostly male migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The latest crime, entirely preventable, is uniquely reprehensible in that it highlights in one act the many insidious consequences of Germany's open-door migration policy — including the failure to vet those allowed into the country and the practice of releasing migrant criminals back onto German streets instead of incarcerating or deporting them.

The crime also exposes the gross negligence of Germany's political class, which appears to be more concerned with preserving multiculturalism and the rights of predatory migrants than protecting German women and children from them.

Police say that Ali Bashar, a 20-year-old Iraqi Kurd, raped Susanna Maria Feldman, strangled her and then dumped her body in a wooded area alongside railroad tracks on the outskirts of Wiesbaden. Bashar then fled to Iraq on false identity papers.

Feldman had been missing from her home in Mainz since May 22. Her mother filed a missing person report on May 23. Police, however, did not even begin to search for the girl until more than a week later, when an unnamed 13-year-old boy, a migrant living in the same refugee shelter as Bashar, contacted the police. Feldman's body was finally recovered on June 6.

Bashar arrived in Germany in October 2015, at the height of the migrant influx, along with his parents and five siblings; claiming to be refugees, they turned out to be economic migrants. Bashar's asylum request was rejected in December 2016. He should have been deported, but after he filed an appeal, German authorities allowed him to stay.

During his three years in Germany, Bashar chalked up an extensive criminal record, including physical assault of law enforcement officers, violent robbery at knifepoint and possession of illegal weapons.

Police said that Bashar was also a suspect in the March 2018 rape of an 11-year-old girl living in the same refugee shelter where he and his family were staying.

Bashar was able to flee Germany under a false identity because of bureaucratic incompetence: federal border police failed to check if the name on his plane ticket matched the name on his identity papers.

Bashar was arrested in northern Iraq on June 8 and was extradited to Germany a day later. He is currently being held at a correctional facility in Wiesbaden.

Susanna's murder was the fourth German teenager to be murdered by illegal migrants during the past 18 months.

  • October 16, 2016. Maria Ladenburger, a 19-year-old medical student from Freiburg, was raped and murdered after returning home from a party hosted by her school's medical faculty. Her attacker was Hussein Khavari, who entered Germany in November 2015 without identification papers. He claimed to have been born in Afghanistan in November 1999. Because of his alleged age (16), he was granted asylum as an underage unaccompanied migrant and placed with a foster family.

    After Khavari was arrested as a suspect in the Ladenburger case, the newsmagazine Stern reported that in February 2014, Khavari had been sentenced to ten years in prison for attempted murder for pushing a 20-year-old woman over a cliff on the Greek island of Corfu. The woman survived the attack and Khavari was released after serving 18 months in prison, based on an amnesty for juvenile offenders. He then migrated to Germany.

    During his trial in Greece, Khavari told the court that he had been born in Iran in January 1996 and had arrived in Europe in January 2013.

    During his trial in Germany, Khavari confessed to raping and killing Ladenburger. It emerged that Khavari was born in Iran on January 29, 1984 and that at the time he killed Ladenburger, he was actually 32. On March 22, 2018, Khavari was sentenced to life in prison for rape and murder, but according to German law, he may apply for parole after serving 15 years.

  • December 27, 2017. Mia Valentin, a 15-year-old girl from Kandel, a small town in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, near the German border with France, was stabbed to death at a local drugstore. Her attacker was Abdul Mobin, a failed Afghan asylum seeker who claimed to be 15 years old.

    Valentin and her attacker had been in a relationship for several months, but after she ended it in early December 2017, Mobin began to threaten her. On December 15, the girl's parents filed a formal complaint to police. Police visited Mobin on December 17, and again on the morning of December 27. Later that day, Mobin followed Valentin into the drugstore and stabbed her with a kitchen knife he had purchased at the same store. The girl died a short time later.

    Mobin had arrived in Germany in April 2016 and initially resided at a refugee shelter in Frankfurt. He was later transferred to a refugee shelter in Germersheim, a small town in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, and then to a youth facility in nearby Neustadt. His asylum claim was rejected in February 2017, but he was not deported. Mobin, who was known to police after he punched a student at Valentin's school, is being held in custody while German authorities try to determine his true age.

  • March 12, 2018. Mireille Bold, a 17-year-old girl from Flensburg, was stabbed to death by Ahmad Gulbhar, an 18-year-old asylum seeker from Afghanistan. He allegedly became enraged and killed her after she refused to wear a headscarf convert to Islam. Gulbhar had arrived in Germany in 2015 as an underage unaccompanied migrant. His asylum application was rejected but he was never deported.

    Bold, who lived in the same building as her attacker, had called police for help at least once before she was killed. A good friend of Bold's family told the newspaper Bild:

    "Ahmad was a jealous rooster who always wanted to control her. They have been in a relationship since January 2016, but there were constant rows. He insisted that she convert to Islam and always wear a headscarf.

    "She wasn't sure. Whenever she went scarfless there was trouble. Mireille told me that he fled alone from Afghanistan and had a great longing for his family. He was supposed to have a job in a civil engineering company. Once when she met with him he called her every two minutes on her phone demanding to know what was happening."

    The attacker is being held in pre-trial detention.

As with the deaths of the other teenagers, Susanna's murder prompted the usual barrage of political posturing and feigned outrages from German politicians and media.

The level of public outrage over Susanna's case, however, suggests that Germany may be reaching a tipping point: the German government is finally being held to account for its role in the migrant rape crisis.

"The government should beg for forgiveness from Susanna's parents," said the mass circulation Bild. "The only thing that is worse than the murder of a child is the murder of a child by a criminal who should not have been in our country."

The leader of the Free Democrats (FDP), Christian Lindner, said that the crime raises many questions: "Why are rejected asylum seekers not deported more consistently? Why could the perpetrator and his family flee under a false identity?"

"This is typical of our German security agencies," FDP politician Alexander Graf Lambsdorff said. "There are simply too many gaps in this system. This has been terribly upsetting for many years."

SPD manager Carsten Schneider said what had to be quickly clarified was "how the suspect was able to escape, and how he can be brought to court in Germany as quickly as possible."

"The Federal Interior Minister must ensure that the existing control mechanisms are also used during entry and exit," said Burkhard Lischka, an SPD spokesman. "With such questionable papers and in view of the destination, the Federal Police could have determined with a simple fingerprint comparison that a criminal is on the run."

"The cruel murder of Susanna fills me with great sadness and anger," saidEckhardt Rehberg of the CDU. "As a politician responsible for the budget, I say...the entire asylum process needs to be fundamentally reshaped. We will provide the money for that."

The Alternative for Germany (AfD), the anti-immigration party, called for the resignation of the entire federal government. In a video posted on Twitter, AfD co-leader Alice Weidel said:

"Susanna is dead. Maria from Freiburg; Mia from Kandel; Mireille from Flensburg; and now Susanna from Mainz....

"Susanna's death is not a blind stroke of fate. Susanna's death is the result of many years of organized irresponsibility and the scandalous failure of our asylum and immigration policies. Susanna is victim of an out-of-control leftwing multicultural ideology that stops at nothing to impose its sense of moral superiority. Susanna is also another victim of Chancellor Angela Merkel's hypocritical and selfish welcome policy.

"Legally, Ali Bashar should never have been allowed into Germany. His asylum request was rejected more than two years ago, and he should have been deported. Bashar was known to police for physical assault, attacking police officers, and possessing illegal weapons. In March 2018, he was suspected of raping an 11-year-old girl at a refugee shelter. According to the law, Bashar should have had to leave Germany a long time ago or be arrested.

"An absurd asylum law and a grotesque asylum is lenient toward asylum cheaters and criminals but ignores the genuine concerns of German citizens.

"Ali Bashar, his parents and five siblings lived here on the taxpayer's dime, they could not be deported, but after his Ali's crime, they somehow found the money to flee Germany on falsified documents. No problem in a Germany with open borders.

"On the day of Susanna's murder, you [Merkel] testified in parliament that you have handled the migrant crisis responsibly. Do you dare to repeat that claim to Susanna's parents? Well, no. Your hard-heartedness and self-righteousness means you feel you are above offering the victims of your policies a personal word. This is unacceptable to us citizens. Will you finally accept responsibility, Mrs. Merkel? You and your entire cabinet should resign to make possible another asylum policy so that the parents in this country no longer need to fear for the safety of their children."

The newsmagazine Stern concluded:

"The emotional reactions to Susanna's case illustrate how Germany has changed. Already in the summer of the refugee crisis, when hundreds of thousands of people came into the country, there were warnings that the mood in the population could tip....

"The case of Susanna awakens the image of a loss of control, an overstretched state that no longer has a grip on asylum policy — especially in a society that loves law and order. There are now repeated demands for stricter laws.

The current scandal over maladministration at the Federal Office of Migration and Refugees [immigration officials accepted cash bribes in exchange for granting asylum to more than 1,200 migrants] seems to emphasize the impression of a failure of the state."

As an American in Germany, I can tell you all here that nothing is going to change.  

The political party "The Left" in Germany, which is about 10% of the population decided just recently to "open the German borders to the entire world" and due to the intellectual gulag of political correctness here one cannot hold an opposing position. 

The German government refuses to deport anyone and this places turns more and more into Detroit on a daily basis. 

Hilft uns Putin!

For the most part, young German men are worthless. 

Like German feminism has brainwashed many women here to illustrate their emancipation by foregoing children, the "Party Hard" culture which is engrained in the young men encourages them to be man-children until they're 40 or so. 

Many German guys I know my age want to "party fucking hard and fuck bitches as long as possible" (a direct quote from one of them).  They have little to no sense of loyalty to women, and to be honest ... why should they?  Many women make it abundantly clear they don't want kids and just want to fuck around too. 

While the average age women who have kids in Germany is right at 30, for men its almost 10 years older at 38. Your FIRST child at age 38. You'll never know your grandchildren, you'll be in a walker when your kids get married (if they get married) assuming they settle down the same age you did and you will have wasted the most productive years of your life doing what exactly ... drinking excessively, sex with randoms constantly, surrounding yourself with people that don't care at all about you and are as socially insecure as you are, doing their best to fit into what the cultural normals are, or at least what they think they are. 

My experience in Germany, if directed at Americans, is quite simple -- if you are an American guy and want a family and kids -- come to Germany.  Be direct and honest about this and you'd be amazed how quickly these "career women" turn back to "yeah kids would be great."

Last weekend another girl was stabbed to death in the German town of Viersen.…

Description of the suspect: Northern African. ("Die Polizei fahndete daraufhin nach einem nordafrikanisch aussehenden Mann")

Additionally, another girl was raped last weekend in Freiburg. She fiercely resisted her attacker, managed to call the police upon which the suspect lost his backpack when he escaped.…

The suspect could quickly be traced because of a personal document in the backpack: a 23 year old Syrian asylum seeker who is also known to the police for previous aggression. "Der 23 Jahre alte Asylbewerber ist laut der Nachrichtenagentur dpa wegen Körperverletzungsdelikten bereits polizeilich aufgefallen."

Then I have no pity for her. She was likely not minding her own business in a public venue, and attracted the attention of Africans.


All the shit I have seen and had to deal with my entire life, the Jews are the most despicable and dishonorable people on the planet. Even niggers have a code of respect they live by. Jews don’t seem to have anything. If there were a group of people deserving of contempt, it’s them. 


Not speaking of civilized assimilated ones, talking about the let’s dress funny so we stand out because my book says so crowd. The ones that wield their Jewishness like damn weapon against everyone around them.

As someone from Eastern Europe living in Germany I would also like to comment on the article and some of the comments here:

I also have the impression that something changed after the murder of Susanna. In recent years, media reports were Pravda-style: you had to read between the lines. No name of the criminal was given? You could be sure that he was neither German nor from a 'vicious country' (like Russia or Serbia). Most likely he was an immigrant. If he was an immigrant who had a German passport he was called 'a German perpetrator'. After the events in Cologne on New Year's Eve the media were told not to report the nationality of the criminals because 'that is not important for the cases'. Most of them complied. However, you could infer the nationality anyway because in cases Germans raped women their nationality was described. The media always used the adjective 'brutal' in connection with rape. However, when they were looking for an asylum seeker from Ghana who had raped a German woman in Bonn the media used the word 'mean' instead of 'brutal' - probably because it could create negative sentiment against Africans. This all completely changed after the Susanna case. The newspaper reports about the new cases afterwards did not only mention the nationalities of the perpetrator but did so in prominent places, sometimes even in the headlines. And if you know that the print media here are part of the department of Agitprop I wonder what this change really means. We'll see how long this change will hold but so far it is very, very obvious.

Regarding the comments of Haus-Targaryen on German men: As everywhere there are more and less serious persons. My impression, however, is that among the more serious men a disproportionately high percentage is married to foreign women. The statistics are out there and I can also confirm from the people I know here. High among them rank women from Poland, Russia/Ukraine, and Latin America.

What is important in my view:


She was NOT a random victim, but she knew the family - in fact, she visited them quite often in the refugee shelter, because she sought a relationship(!) with a younger brother of the perpetrator.


So, what if she told the younger brother, that she was jewish?


And the younger brother - who in fact refused to have a relationship with her(!) - told it to the perp?


There are not yet much details out on the crime, but it seems that Ali B. raped and brutalized Suanna for several HOURS!


AND: after the deed he felt so full of himself, that he could not keep his mouth shut, but had to BOAST and BRAGG about it to other muslims in the refugee shelter...


Now: what, if this was indeed a hate crime? A jewish girl in Germany, murdered by a muslim out of hate...


No way Merkel will sit this one out. That may be history in the making!

I guess it took a jewish girl to be raped to finally get the world's attention

Makes you wonder (((for about two seconds))) who is pulling the strings behind the invasion of Europe by non-Whites.

How can we have a new cabalist world order if European civilization (that has thrown us out over 100 times) is still intact?

What really is amazing is that they are not even denying it:

And your view is very compatible with modern society : hateful, myopic, narcissistic, idiocy.

Your version of modern society will be dead in two generations - no one is willing to self sacrifice for children, finds a child's love something to be smeared at, a believes that their selfish self-centered lives will somehow find someone somewhere to take care of them when they are old.

Get a clue. If you are not intimately familiar with the sick ashkeNAZI Protocols of Zion, you're not in the game to permanently defeat the enemy. All you're seeing is Germany as the United States, being purposefully destroyed by the Satanic Judaic Jews with their sick Zionist Protocols. They are out to bring down the youth. Sick mother fuckers. READ THE PROTOCOLS. 

Putting women to work makes more tax dollars for the Jewish Black Magic Dracula cult living off of the innocent. Rothschild pushed women's lib in order to steal more money. Stop and think about it. You better. You are under attack of life and limb by clandestine sick and evil ways. 

In order for the world to live, sick Satanic Judaic Zionism must and will die. Removing Zionism from the world posthaste is the way to provide the great future for every living person. Start with Hitler. His name was always Rothschild.

Sounds like the receipt for A Brave New World.


My uncle told me about a week ago, and he was just retiring, that there’s no reason to bother trying to save anything because the next generation is already screwed. He said don’t bother, just make money and enjoy life. So it’s a boomer mentality not a young person mentality. It’s just the boomers passed it on like morons.

Socrates said, make women equal to men and they become their superiors! western women got what they wanted and they are still asking for more ! it was right to vote back then, today they 'run' the country , into ruins. In the middle east, where i come from, men run everything, most importantly, the family. women will have lots of problems getting an abortions, rightly so! Europeans have lost their sense of values, the price of that will be high

If women truly runs the country then money makers would be women at top and government body would be women majority! But guess what the governing body are men majority and so are the top money makers, it just meant that it's the men at those positions that's causing this problem as they voted or passed laws to allow muslims or rapedugees in, just like they passed laws to let retards like you live and blame all your failure in life on women. 


You're a pathetic old geezer who refuse to take responsibility for your own life thus here you are bitching about women.

" if you are an American guy and want a family and kids -- come to Germany" - but ONLY if you are an American(or maybe British) forget it if you are a main-land European then the best you can hope for are one night stands.

This guy was so desperate for pussy he agreed to marry his former girlfriend who now had a child with somebody else and who he did not see IRL for over a decade - a guy I would rate at an easy 8+
