Would it surprise you to learn that European women are being blamed for getting raped by Muslim migrant men? Such is the latest position – the latest apologia – being offered by those dedicated to exonerating undesirable Muslim behavior, particularly in the context of accepting more Muslim migrants into the West. Apparently, the “ME, TOO” movement need not apply when women are the victims of Muslim migrant rapists in Europe.

Raymond Ibrahim  These are hardly the first times officials “put the blame for the criminal acts [of Muslim men] on the women.” Nor is this phenomenon limited to Germany and Sweden. For instance, after a 20-year-old Austrian woman waiting at a bus stop in Vienna was attacked, beaten, and robbed by four Muslim men – including one who “started [by] putting his hands through my hair and made it clear that in his cultural background there were hardly any blonde women” police responded by telling the victim to dye her hair.
Likewise, Unni Wikan, a female professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo in Norway, insists that “‘Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes,’ because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. The professor’s conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West needed to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite: ‘Norwegian women must realize that we live in a Multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.’”

So much for the feminist claim that women are free to dress and behave as promiscuously and provocatively as they want – and woe to any man who dares cite this as justifying his sexual aggression. Apparently, this feminist refrain does not apply to Muslim men.
But perhaps the greater irony of all these excuses is that, from the very start of Islam 14 centuries ago, European women – even chaste nuns – have always been portrayed by Muslims as sexually promiscuous by nature.
This is easily discerned by examining medieval Muslim perceptions – and subsequent treatment – of European women, as documented throughout Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West . Consider Muslim views concerning neighboring Byzantine women, who came to represent all European or Christian women to Islam.

As one Western academic of Muslim origin (rather euphemistically) explains:
The Byzantines as a people were considered fine examples of physical beauty, and youthful slaves and slave-girls of Byzantine origins were highly valued. … The Arabs’ appreciation of the Byzantine female has a long history indeed. For the Islamic period, the earliest literary evidence we have is a hadith (saying of the Prophet). Muhammad is said to have addressed a newly converted Arab: “Would you like the girls of Banu al-Asfar [the yellow (haired?) or pale people]?”
Muhammad’s question was meant to entice the man to join the Tabuk campaign against the Romans and reap its rewards – in this case, the sexual enslavement of attractive women. In other words, as “white-complexioned blondes, with straight hair and blue eyes,” to quote another academic, Byzantine women were not so much “appreciated” or “highly valued” as they were lusted after. (All quotes in this article are sourced from and documented in Sword and Scimitar.)
Clearly, little has changed some 1,400 years after the founding of Islam: European women continue to be seen as naturally promiscuous and thus provoking Muslim men into raping them.

Thus, in the United Kingdom, a Muslim man explained to a British woman why he was raping her: “you white women are good at it.” Another Muslim man called a 13-year-old virgin “a little white slag” – British slang for “loose, promiscuous woman” – before raping her.
In Germany, a group of Muslim “refugees” stalked a 25-year-old woman, hurled “filthy” insults at her, and taunted her for sex. They too explained their logic to her – “German girls are just there for sex” – before reaching into her blouse and groping her. A Muslim man who almost killed his 25-year-old German victim while raping her – and shouting “Allah!” – asked afterward if she enjoyed it.

In Austria, an “Arabic-looking man” approached a 27-year-old woman at a bus stop, pulled down his pants, and “all he could say was sex, sex, sex,” prompting the woman to scream and flee.
In Australia, a Muslim cabbie groped and insulted his female passengers, including by saying, “All Australian women are sluts and deserve to be raped.”
In short, the ancient Islamic motif concerning the alleged promiscuity of European women is alive and well – irrespective of the latter’s behavior – and continues justifying the Muslim rape of Western women.
Yet, even in this, Islam can turn to those “progressive,” godless elements that dominate Western society for cover. For, just as “the Left” has worked long and hard to portray Islamic intolerance, violence, and terrorism as the West’s fault – because of the crusades, because of colonialism, because of cartoons, because of Israel, because of freedom of speech – it now adds “because of Western promiscuity” to the list of reasons that “provoke” Muslims to behave like Muslims.
