We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.

The Evil Game

The mainstream media has latched on to a word to describe the evil behaviour demonstrated by men who, pretending to be protectors, gather in groups to swarm women and sexually assault them.

The highly organized and evil practice has been documented in Egypt and has spread to Europe. Anyone with a computer and/or television has by now probably become acquainted with the horrendous violence perpetrated against women during this past New Year's Eve celebrations in Cologne, Germany.

What is the name of said diabolical practice?
Taharrush jamai (Arabic: تحرش جماعي‎; taḥarrush jamāʿī) is the Arabic term for "collective harassment," sometimes used to refer to the sexual assault of women in public by large groups of men. This phenomena has only been observed in Arabic cultures and is evidence of it's cultural roots.—Wikipedia

Taharrush jamai, also transliterated as taharrush gamai, is sexual assault by mob. It has been described as a "rape game".

Media reports since the shameful cover up by the press indicate that Europeans are beginning to demand of their governments that immigrants from the Middle East, in particular men, be better vetted and that all recent immigrants who have misrepresented themselves should be deported.
The sea change in attitude among Europe’s political leadership – mere weeks ago, many of them insisted that they must open their doors even wider on humanitarian grounds – followed mass sexual assaults in European cities on New Year’s Eve. Although government officials and the mainstream press initially tried to cover up the extent of the wrong-doing – an estimated 1,000 Muslims in Cologne alone participated in “Taharrush,” a practice of encircling, groping and sometimes raping women – the extent of the assaults led to a fire-storm of outrage on social media that forced both the mainstream media and the politicians to acknowledge the problems and reverse course.—Lawrence Solomon/NP/source-link
Taharrush jamai is cultural, organized, animalistic, barbaric and lethal. It is sexual violence of a degree that should awaken in all people of goodwill a vocal and practical rejection of such violent behaviour toward women.

Taharrush jamai is, to state the obvious, incompatible with civilized society. When governments and police and media of so-called democratic nations cower behind political correctness, afraid to identify immigrant violence for fear of being labelled racist, the victims of their timidity are—as the example of the German cover up proves—women who are twice assaulted: first, by the perpetrators of physical assaults; and, secondly, by a society that has discarded its moral compass and sense of justice for political correctness which permits the circumstances in which certain men can commit crimes with relative impunity.

The failure by police, media and governments to put a face to those responsible for the atrocity of taharrush jamai amounts to complicity with those responsible for assaulting women. Furthermore, inaction by the same liberal politically correct entities also enables racist groups to appropriate a crisis and use people's fears to support their own ignoble goals.

"I had no idea how endemic,... that it is so rife, so widespread,... that so many Egyptian men admit to sexually harassing women and think it's completely acceptable. In fact, (the perpetrators) blame the women for it."—Lara Logan, 60 Minutes.
Concerns about the challenges to German society have even been expressed by Cardinal Marx of Germany:
