Yesterday I wrote about the murder of a university professor named Fuat Deniz in the town of Örebro in Sweden. The earlier Swedish news stories seemed to shy away from a possible connection between the murder of Dr. Deniz and his writings on the Assyrian genocide under the Ottomans.
Today’s report in The Local is not so reticent:
Political motive suspected in Örebro murder
Colleagues of the 40 year-old sociology lecturer murdered at Örebro University on Tuesday fear for their safety amid suspicions that the motive was political.
Fuat Deniz researched within the field of the Assyrian genocide in the Ottoman empire and other researchers working in the field have been threatened, according to David Gaunt at Södertörn University College. Gaunt has worked with Fuat Deniz and they held several lectures and seminars together.
“On several occasions at our seminars people would attend claiming to be journalists only to then walk around photographing delegates,” Gaunt told Svenska Dagbladet.
So it appears that Dr. Deniz and his associates were being stalked in preparation for an attack. It seems less and less likely that this was some kind of random wilding.
The Local continues:

It is reported that researchers have been harassed, received death threats and been labeled terrorists. Gaunt reports having been followed by security police on trips to Turkey and describes being subjected to a smear campaign by a Turkish newspaper.
“All those interested in Christian minorities in Turkey are considered a threat,” said Gaunt.
Deniz was internationally renowned for his work with the Assyrian genocide in the Ottoman empire and was scheduled to speak at a conference on religious minorities in the Netherlands today.
So this is what Sweden reaps for all those decades of Multicultural respect and tolerance. An entire field of academic enquiry is under threat, and university professors must go about in fear of their lives.
Welcome to the New Sweden.
