The Arabic Gang-Rape ‘Taharrush’ Phenomenon

Police fear a gang-rape phenomenon known as ‘taharrush gamea’ in the Arab world and seen in attacks on women across German cities at the New Year has now spread to Europe.

The name of the practice translates to ‘collective harassment’ and is carried out by large groups of men who sexually assault lone women, either by groping, or in some instances, raping them.


The men first surround their victim in circles. Some then sexually assault her, while others not directly involved watch or divert outsiders’ attention to what is occurring.

Sometimes the terrified victim – in a state of shock and unable to respond – is also robbed during the ordeal.

And the attack usually goes unpunished because the large number of perpetrators and chaos of the attack means authorities are unable to identify those involved. (Read more from “The Arabic Gang-Rape ‘Taharrush’ Phenomenon” HERE)

    Good thing those Europeans are smart enough to disarm those women, huh? We wouldn’t want them to have a chance to defend themselves.

    Interesting if you read the entire article. It’s as if the term ‘taharrush gamea’ is a game or disease. The study published by a Ms. Abdelmonem from AZ State University concluded that there is a ‘lack of ‘conceptual boundaries’ of the term further blurred the lines of when acceptable flirtation became harassment.’.
    Flirtation? Harassment? I say it’s a crime! I say these Arabic men are reprehensible pigs! I say that if I ever saw anything like that happening in this this country, I would, without a doubt, in my military mind, take any and all necessary action to stop the practice of taharrush. If that action includes permanently ending those pigs that are responsible, so be it.

    Vigilante justice is what’s needed. Since Europe disarms it’s citizens, then use a sword and decapitate those S.O.*s
