In fairness, it must be said that this
is not typical or common Muslim behavior, but it does remind us of what is always seething just under the surface in extremely sexually-repressed
societies. When pressure builds and builds, the resulting explosions can be nasty. It can at least be said that Islam as a religion does not deem this kind of sexual rampaging to be acceptable (at least against "respectable" Muslim women -- unveiled infidels are another matter, in some views
). It is striking that while some passers-by tried to help the victims, the police apparently did not.
There are, of course, other ways
of letting off steam, which are all too
typical and common these days -- especially when non-Muslim targets are available.
