A suspected arsonist set fire to a mosque in the Swedish town of Eskilstuna, injuring five people, police said, an incident which comes amid an intense debate over immigration.

The immigration debate has pitted the far right, which wants to cut the number of asylum seekers allowed into Sweden by 90 percent, against mainstream parties intent on preserving the Nordic country’s liberal policy. Read more »

Am I overstating the Muslim immigration threat?

Reader idbkiwi highlighted this in the comments yesterday.  I thought it was worth a wider audience.  In general, I tend to use the UK’s troubles with Islam and Muslim immigration.  Yesterday, I highlighted the case where the UK armed forces are now recommended not to wear their uniforms in public, lest they be a target.

In Sweden, this is even worse.  The Swedish police recently reported on 55 areas within Sweden where the Swedish rule of law no longer exists.

The Swedish police recently released a map of 55 areas where they publicly admit to having surrendered control to the criminal gangs. These areas have long had problems with mailmen, fire trucks and ambulances being attacked when trying to enter, which has led to them routinely requesting police escort. Now it’s the police being attacked outright.

These no-go zones are primarily so-called “exclusion areas” which is the politically correct term for the 186 ghettos that have sprung up around Sweden in the past two decades. These areas are predominantly populated by immigrants from muslim countries with low education and even lower employment rates. The exception being the enthusiastic entrepreneurs in the fields of drug dealing, protection rackets and robberies.

Since the real law doesn’t apply, the function of justice has largely been taken over by the gangs themselves, not unlike how the mafia is seen as the go-to place in rural Italy when the local police is too corrupt to serve its purpose. Unofficial courts are held and punishments are meted out based on the cultural norms of the dominant gangs. Some no-go areas even have vehicle checkpoints at the border. Not police checkpoints, but the gangs protecting their turf from law enforcement and rival gangs.

This development would have been inconceivable only 20 years ago, and one would think this official surrender by the police would have made big headlines. This is not the case; the most attention it seems to have received in mainstream media is an opinion piece in national paper Svenska Dagbladet. Read more »

I am genuinely fearful for our future. What I have been warning about is not a hypothetical future, it is a future already happening in other countries, we are just 5 or more years behind them. Sweden is a great example of what happens when so called Progressive politics opens the flood gates to unrestricted Muslim Immigration.
