Taharrush - the Arab rape 'game' that's been exported to Europe

What happened in Cologne and other cities in Europe on New Year's Eve is known in the Arab world as Taharrush. It's a rape 'game' and it's particularly unpleasant for the women caught up in it (Hat Tip: Ellen S).
The "rape game" Taharrush is about a large group of Arab men surrounding their victim, usually a Western woman or a woman wearing Western-style clothing, and then the women are subjected to sexual abuse.

They surround the victim in circles. The men in the inner circle are the ones who physically abuse the woman, the next circle are the spectators, while the mission of the third circle is to distract and divert attention to what's going on.

If there is enough men, the woman is dragged along by the mob, while the men take turns ripping her clothes off, grope her, and inserting fingers in her various body orifices.
I have a mercifully short video of it to show you (safe for work, but parental discretion advised - I did not turn on this video with my kids in the room).

Let's go to the videotape. More after the video.

Sounds like what happened to CBS reporter Lara Logan in Cairo's Tahrir Square five years ago, doesn't it? More reading here.

And now thanks to Frau Merkel, it's been exported to Europe. Will the US be next?

Does this happen in Israel, too?

Hi NY Gal,

While I have heard stories of individual rapes in Israel mostly by Arab men (follow the last link this post for one of them), I have not heard of this 'game' happening here.

It may well happen in Arab-dominated towns and villages, and if you search Rachel Corrie's name on the blog you will find that there was some speculation that she may have been a victim of rape before she was killed in Rafah.
