A German teachers' union says young girls should stay away from Muslim men or risk sexual assault
Not all refugees are welcome in Germany, with arson and assault on asylum-seekers three times higher this year than last. The statement from the teachers' union does little to help the situation. (Twitter)
In another horrific blow to the emancipation of refugees in Germany, a teachers’ union has published an incredibly Islamophobic warning to German girls, urging them to be wary of Muslim men.
An article appearing in the union's "Journal of the Philologists' Association of Saxony-Anhalt" encouraged teachers to warn students of sexual assault at the hands of refugees, who are “often attractive Muslim men” entering the country “under dubious pretenses."
The statement said that girls should be wary of the risk of molestation, and how innocent conversations on public transport or in shops could lead to sexual assault.
The total number of refugees arriving in Germany this year is expected to reach up to one million and have for the most part been received with open arms. But there have also been a number of incidents of assault on refugees and arson on the buildings they reside in.
Politicians blasted the statement as fear-mongering, with Saxony-Anhalt's education minister Stephan Dorgerloh accusing the union of "amplifying rumors, spreading half-truths and exploiting its value."
Green Party State Leader Claudia Dalbert said that "the content [of the article] is completely base, it serves prejudice and the far-right fringe."
