“The left-leaning magazine Falter was accused of “blanket discrimination” against Muslims, after it ran a cover with a drawing of five “light skinned” European women surrounded by large numbers of “dark skinned” Arab males. The image evoked the mass sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.”

The brutal gang rape of a woman by three Afghan asylum seekers in central Vienna on April 22 has shocked the Austrian public and drawn attention to a spike in migrant-related rapes, sexual assaults and other crimes across the country.

The migrant crime wave comes as the anti-immigrant Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) has surged in opinion polls. The party’s candidate, Norbert Hofer, won the first round of Austria’s presidential elections on April 24, and is on track to win the presidency in the second round, run-off election scheduled for May 22.
