According to the German Ministry of the Interior, 18 of the 31 suspects identified in the New Year’s Eve attacks in Cologne which saw scores of robberies, physical assaults and sexual assaults are currently seeking asylum in Germany.
It is believed that nearly 1,000 men were involved in these attacks. Out of 1,000 men, 31 is a small sample size. But what we know is that more than half the men identified in these assaults are asylum seekers. When the other 969 men of “Arab and North African appearance” are identified it will be interesting to see if the proportion of asylum seekers remains the same or possibly increases. If it turns out that more than 50% of those responsible for these attacks are asylum seekers then Angela Merkel’s days as German Chancellor are numbered and, unless corrective action is immediately taken, Germany’s days are numbered as well.
