Sweden is a country that has virtually no public debate about mass immigration, which continues at full speed. The Swedish political and media elites congratulate themselves for their Multicultural goodness. If sacrificing your own children is the definition of good, then exactly what constitutes evil?
From The Local, January 25, 2007:
Staff at Gustav Adolf School in the southern town of Landskrona have now retracted a controversial ban on the use of languages other than Swedish on school premises.
Just days after its introduction the principal has downgraded the ban to a “main rule”. Consequently pupils will now be allowed to speak their native languages during breaks.
But, in a new measure, pupils will have to pass two security guards when entering the school.
On Saturday it was revealed that the management of the school had decided that only Swedish could be spoken on school premises. Almost half of the pupils at the school come from an immigrant background.
The ban was introduced following a number of incidents in which staff and pupils felt they had been insulted in languages they did not understand.
From The Local, January 19, 2007:
A fierce debate has erupted following the closure of a school in the southern town of Landskrona yesterday. Gustav Adolf School reopened on Friday amid calls for tighter discipline, more surveillance cameras and a new principal.
A series of disturbances have meant that six pupils will now be moved to other schools, while 22 others have been suspended for a week.
In December nine 15-year-old girls at the school went on strike after accusing male classmates of bullying. They say the boys used foul language, spat on them from a balcony and put sticky tape in their hair.
There have also been reports of boys urinating in girls’ shoes, as well as threats and beatings on school premises.
When leftover fireworks from the recent new year’s celebrations exploded inside the school on Thursday, health and safety representative Leif Paulsson ordered the school’s immediate closure.

Even more news from Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, the evolving tragedy of failed immigration policies and runaway crime rates. Set to become the first major Scandinavian city with a Muslim majority a few years from now, it is the horror story in the ongoing collapse of Swedish society. about a high school teacher in Malmö, Sweden, who discovered that about a dozen Arab students were laughing and shouting “Allahu Akbar!” while watching a DVD of infidel hostages being beheaded in Iraq. The headmaster didn’t think the incident was such a big deal.
At least 139 schools in Sweden suffered arson attacks during 2002 alone, a number which by 2007 has grown to at least 230. Such as an incident in Malmö, where three schools were put on fire during one night. “Teenage boys” are suspected to behind the arson. Björn Vinberg from the fire department in Kroksbäck in the Malmö area says it’s humiliating and degrading to put out fires again and again in the same immigrant areas, with school kids laughing at them and lighting a new one just afterwards. His colleagues have been to the same place no less than twenty times, all totally unnecessary.
In 2005 it was decided that the district of Hyllie in Malmö would begin education in Arabic only for groups of immigrant preschool children. This seems logical, given that Muslims already make up close to one third of its population, and may well be the majority within a few years as native Swedes are leaving the city in record numbers. The idea is that once the children learn the language of their parents, it will become easier for them to learn Swedish as well. So the Swedish state paying for educating Swedish citizens on Swedish ground in Arabic is somehow supposed to increase integration.
From The Local, January 2, 2007:
Two local Liberal Party politicians in Malmö have proposed a ban on the use of languages other than Swedish in school classrooms. Local politician Eva Bertz and member of parliament Allan Widman see the measure as a way to tackle the problem of segregation in society.
“This is a local proposal. In Malmö we have a very unique situation: we are close to the point where a majority of pupils have a foreign background, which is to say that either they or their parents come from a country outside Sweden,” Allan Widman told The Local.
As chairman of the local branch of the Liberals, Widman has the backing of his party in Sweden’s third largest city. But he has not discussed the matter with Liberal Party leader and education minister Lars Leijonborg, or school minister Jan Björklund.
“We’re not commenting on that,” school minister Jan Björklund’s press secretary told The Local when asked about the proposal.
Widman explains that some schools in Malmö have as few as 5 percent ethnic Swedes in their classrooms.
From The Local, January 12, 2007:
Rival gangs of 10-year-olds in the eastern town of Söderhamn have threatened to wipe each other out. One of the gangs is made up of indigenous Swedes and the other of immigrants, and police in the town are taking the problem very seriously.
The conflict has escalated on the internet, and police fear that there may be fatalities if the fighting is not stopped.
From an article by Bruce Bawer in The New York Sun, December 8, 2006:
Recently, the city of Stockholm carried out a survey of ninth-grade boys in the predominantly Muslim suburb of Rinkeby. The survey showed that in the last year, 17% of the boys had forced someone to have sex, 31% had hurt someone so badly that the victim required medical care, and 24% had committed burglary or broken into a car. Sensational statistics — but in all of Sweden, they appear to have been published only in a daily newssheet that is distributed free on the subways.
A report from organization Save the Children tells of how being a young Swedish girl today means feeling unsafe. The girls are scared of being raped, a possibility that appears very real to them. Many girls plan how to go home at night, how to pretend to be talking on the mobile phone, how to keep their keys in their hand to defend themselves or how to simply run all the way home. Both the fear and the choice of strategies indicate that many girls feel genuinely unsafe outdoors during certain hours of the day. A striking number of girls have experienced harassment from boys or men. Most frequently, the harassment comes from boys of the same age as the girls. Being called “whore” has become so common in some schools that several of the girls say the teachers no longer react to this.
Actress Ylva Törnlund has visited several schools in Tensta, and was alarmed by the harsh atmosphere she discovered there. “The attitudes we meet in the schools are frightening. One boy talked about how girls should be f**ked to pieces until they bleed,” Törnlund said. She decided to visit the area after a rape that took place in a public bath nearby in broad daylight. A 17-year-old girl was raped, and none of the other guests did anything to stop this. The girl was first approached by a 16-year-old boy. He and his friends followed her as she walked away into a grotto, and inside the grotto he got her blocked in the corner, ripped off her bikini and raped her, while his friend held her firm.
The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just over twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six — 6 — times as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas.
“It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably f****d before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame. It is important that she retains her virginity until she marries.” “It is far too easy to get a Swedish whore… girl, I mean,” says Hamid, and laughs over his own choice of words. “I don’t have too much respect for Swedish girls. I guess you can say they get f****d to pieces.”
