A 21 year old woman was raped in a major Belgian train station with passers-by ignoring her plight. Two North African immigrants accosted her as left her train and said she should be wearing a head-scarf. (She was not a Muslim.) Thus they held her at knife point and assaulted her.
Is this the way of the New Europe? Is this what women can expect? Rogue immigrants and detached local men? Is this the accumulation of years of post-Christian malaise, the banality of sexual prurience, outright rejection of a chivalric code and waves of Muslims?
Her father, of course, is outraged. She is hospitalised. Police are mulling about looking for clues. No bystanders have come forward to help. Not during, not after. Without God, moral duty withers. (Duty to Allah, evidently, is a thing apart.)
