The answer is simple and pathetic.

Crime: A follow up to the post about the train ride from hell. Michelle Malkin asks.

Drawing attention to this buried story of a gang of more than 20 youths in France -- thought to be North African immigrants -- who terrorized hundreds of train passengers in a rampage of violence, robbery and sexual assault on New Year's Day, Robin Burk at Winds of Change asks a good question: [W]here is the outrage by western feminists about the rape of young women by gangs of young men coming from immigrant and at least culturally, if not actively religiously, muslim backgrounds??????? Crickets. Chirping.
The same reason why they attack someone like Ayaan Hirsi Ali from The Nation June 2005.
"....If Belhaj was sad, another "Stop the Witchhunt!" organizer was angry. Like Belhaj, Miriyam Aouragh is a second-generation immigrant of Moroccan background. A self-described peace and women's activist, Aouragh was the first in her family to attend university. She's now studying for a PhD in anthropology. She scoffs at the idea that Hirsi Ali is a champion of oppressed Muslim women. "She's nothing but an Uncle Tom," Aouragh said. "She has never fought for the oppressed. In fact, she's done the opposite. She uses these problems as a cover to attack Islam. She insults me and she makes my life as a feminist ten times harder because she forces me to be associated with anti-Muslim attacks."
The same reason Outrage's Peter Tatchell was ticked by Sir Iqbal Sacranie of Muslim Council of Britain saying gays are harmful to society in the UK.
"Both the Muslim and gay communities suffer prejudice and discrimination. We should stand together to fight Islamophobia and homophobia."
The same reason when Chris Crain of the Washington Blade got beat up in Amsterdam by Muslims, it was excused.
Gay campaigners are outraged that sensitivity about intolerance towards Muslims is blinding people to intolerance from Muslims. Scott Long, the director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender programme at Human Rights Watch, the human rights group, caused outrage when he declared: “Gays often become the victims of this when immigrants retaliate for the inequalities they have to suffer.” Mr Crain, who has been deluged with e-mails of support from Dutch citizens, thundered back: “Long’s ‘blame the society’ political correctness is a distraction from the very real cultural clashes happening in Holland and elsewhere.”

Because when you side against this behavior, you are siding with your "enemies." It is too much for feminists and the politically correct to handle at once.
