Quick, now! In what countries would you expect to find passenger train carriages reserved for (or restricted to) women? Saudi Arabia, maybe? [Do they even have trains there? Ed.] Or how about Egypt, Indonesia or Pakistan? Yes, that would be right. And what is the majority religion in those countries? Yes, Islam is the right answer.
Do any other countries come to mind? Oh, yes... India, where Muslims are a minority. That's the case also in Germany. "What???", I hear you say. "They have women-only train cars in Germany???" Yes, they do now! Mitteldeutsche Regiobahn, a railway company which operates a line between Leipzig and Chemnitz, has introduced women-only carriages on some of its trains. Women (and boys under 10) may choose to ride in a car situated next to an office for train staff, "to encourage a safer atmosphere for all female travellers in general."
Errr, yes... safer for women... that's good. But why now? Just a coincidence, no doubt, that the gender-segregated carriages are being introduced just days after just days after the first suspect of the Cologne sex attacks was charged with a sex crime. Last Thursday, a 26-year-old Algerian man was charged with sexual assault and theft in relation to the New Year’s Eve rampage in the west German city.
More than 1100 criminal complaints were received in relation to the New Year’s Eve events, including over 480 accusations of sexual assault. There was controversy in the lamestream media over a perceived cover-up because of the ethnicity of the attackers, described by many witnesses as being of North African or Arab appearance. And that's they were, no matter how much the liberal hug-an-immigrant media may deny it -- young Muslim migrants, "refugees" and asylum-seekers, some of the million-plus "welcomed" into Germany last year.
As you might expect, Mitteldeutsche Regiobahn has denied the new carriages are linked to the Cologne attacks. It's just a coincidence. And just one more example of the Islamization of Europe.
