Sweden sends Christmas message to Islam

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.

Between 15 and 20 people were in the mosque on Thursday, located in the ground floor of a building in a mainly residential area, when the fire erupted.

Local media footage showed smoke and flames billowing from the windows.

“A witness saw somebody throw an object through the window of the building, which serves as a mosque, after which a violent fire began,” police spokesman Lars Franzell said.

The five injured people were taken to hospital for treatment of injuries ranging from smoke inhalation to lacerations. No suspect has been apprehended yet, Franzell added.

By the time the population needs to break the law to get heard, the politicians have already failed.

 

Unless the world uses this as clear warning sign that indiscriminate Muslim immigration policy leads to this, they should not be surprised when one day, this will happen in their countries too.

Now is the time for brave politicians to stand up against government policy that has other countries close to the brink of a religious civil war.
