    1. Though crime data by ethnicity, religion, and migration status are quite limited in European countries (something that ought to be reformed), accusations of statistical exaggeration are refuted by Ayaan’s correct identification of a stunning pattern emerging in Europe: migrant men from Muslim-majority countries are committing an exceedingly disproportionate number of sexual offenses. In Germany, for example, asylum seekers were 12 percent of suspects in all sex crimes, despite comprising only one to two per cent of the total population. Asylum-seekers comprised less than one per cent of the Austrian population in 2017, yet they were suspects in 11 percent of all reported sexual harassment and rape cases. Hirsi Ali finds startlingly similar trends in Austria, France, Denmark, and other countries.

      What say you now, sir?
