Polish magazine depicts “European rape” at the hands of migrants, Twitter reacts

A Polish magazine cover has sparked a fresh debate about the reporting of Europe's migrant crisis by featuring a woman, draped in the European flag, being attacked by a group of faceless dark-skinned men while the headline screams: “The Islamic rape of Europe”.

Far-right weekly magazine wSieci sent Twitter into a tailspin with the controversial cover. 

Some praised the article’s cover image. The piece accuses Europe of hiding migrant crime.

...While many accused the Polish magazine of “fascism” and “fear-mongering”, comparing the cover to WW2 Nazi and Mussolini propaganda.
