Summary: Why are so few people talking about the eruption of sexual violence and harassment in Europe's cities? Because almost no one in a position of power wants to admit that the problem is linked to the arrival of several million migrants--most of them young men--from Muslim-majority countries. In Prey, the best-selling author of Infidel, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, presents startling statistics, criminal cases and personal testimony. She shows that, after a period when sexual violence in western Europe barely increased, after 2014 it surged. In Germany "offences against sexual self-determination" in 2018 were 36% above their 2014 level. Nearly two-fifths of the suspects were non-German. Asylum seekers were suspects in 11% of all reported rapes and sexual harassment cases in Austria in 2017, despite making up less than 1% of the total population. This violence isn't a figment of alt-right propaganda. It's a real problem that Europe--and the world--cannot continue to ignore.
