German Mayor’s Advice To Girls Harassed By Muslim Refugees: “Just Don’t Provoke Them”
A small town council meeting turned into a microcosm of the highly contentious German debate over Middle Eastern asylum seekers when the major suggested that women avoid sexual harassment by avoiding migrants and not “provoking” them.
In a video posted to YouTube, an elderly man claims that his ten-year-old granddaughter was facing harassment walking to her school gym, which is near a refugee center.
“They get harassed from the windows and things like that. How will this be in the summer, when the school girls wear less clothing?”
“That’s easy, just don’t provoke them and don’t walk in these areas,” Bad Schlema Mayor Jens Müller told him. Predictably, the mayor’s comments did not go over well and prompted an outpouring of jeers.
