Fjordman has written numerous articles about the immigrant rape wave in Sweden. See the bottom of this post for links to his posts on the topic.
He has emphasized repeatedly that the authorities in Sweden are in denial about the nature of the rape epidemic, and that they attempt to explain it away without ever mentioning the number of rapes committed by Third World immigrants, especially Muslims.
The latest batch of statistics from Sweden confirms the pattern: the incidence of rape has increased dramatically in the last decade. Sweden, a historically peaceful country with a low rate of violent crime, is undergoing an unprecedented epidemic of rapes.
Since the government doesn’t keep statistics on the ethnicity of perps and victims, no one really knows the significance of immigration as it applies to the current crime wave. But anecdotal evidence strongly suggests that most of the perpetrators are young Muslim immigrants, often gang members, and the victims are “persons of Swedish background”. Read some of Fjordman’s articles for the details that point to this conclusion.
The latest report is notable for what it doesn’t say. The immigrant elephant is in the room, but the Swedish government and media are unwilling to acknowledge it:
Swedish rape stats rise
The number of reported rapes in Sweden has risen sharply in the last ten years, according to a new survey by Brå, the Swedish national council for crime prevention.
The report highlights other interesting statistics about the changing face of rape crime in Sweden.
Victims and rapists are less likely to know each other well and there have been less so-called random attack rapes in the last ten years.
The number of reported rapes on people over the age of 15 years has doubled since ten years ago. Around 3,500 rapes were reported in 2007.
According to the crime prevention council, rapes reported most occurred between people of no or little acquaintance. This type of rape has risen by 10 percent between 1996 and 2006.

“Rape is one of the most violating crimes against a person. The last decade has seen strong opinions voiced against men’s violence towards women, and the law regarding sexual offences has been reworked several times.
Now comes the most common explanation for the increase — more rapes are being reported nowadays:
“A change in the law also means that many more of the more minor sexual assaults are now considered a crime and are being reported. As a result, more rapes are reported, which is positive”, said Jan Andersson, director general of Brå in a statement.
The incidence of rape has doubled because more of the “minor assaults” are being reported?
OK. Now pull the other one.
Also: what used to be called “sexual assault” or “sexual abuse” is now called rape:
The law was changed in 2005 so that criminal actions that had once been classified as sexual assault or sexual abuse are now judged as rape. This also goes some way toward explaining the rise in rape statistics.
All right, I believe that. Now tell me the relative proportions: how many of the incidents now labeled “rape” would likely have been designated otherwise under the old system?
Reported rapes where the parties concerned don’t know each other often occur in a private home which doesn’t belong to either victim or rapist. The growing prevalence of this type of rape is not only due to an increase in reported rapes, but also to a change in people’s lifestyles.
So the atomization of society contributes to an increase in rape. I’ll buy that, but once again: give me the numbers. How much of the increase is attributable to such things? Remember, we’re talking about a doubling of the incidence of this crime.
And, when all else fails, blame the internet:
According to Klara Hradilova Selin of Brå, it should also be taken into account that “a more active night life and a flurry of internet dating websites enable contacts, often for purely sexual reasons”.
For some reason, all the rape-wave stories seem related to this one:
Fire-fighters given police escort to rowdy Malmö suburb
Before we go any further, notice the adjective chosen here by The Local: “rowdy”.
This word is used to characterize the rambunctious residents of Rosengård, a suburb that is made up almost entirely of Muslim immigrants.
Arson, theft, mugging, looting, and rape: put it down to simple “rowdiness”.
These kids, they’re like the high-spirited Taliban. Or maybe those zany cut-ups from Al-Qaeda.
Malmö fire-fighters will in the future be given a police escort when visiting the suburb of Rosengård. Fire-fighters have demanded protection after having been repeatedly subjected to stone throwing and death threats.
Authorities decided on Thursday to provide protection to fire-fighters after a call-out on Thursday evening turned violent. Fire-fighters were subjected to stone-throwing and received death threats when battling a blaze in Rosengård, according to SVT.
Fire-fighters are now required to await a police escort before entering the area.
So the firemen require a police escort.
What about those unfortunate girls “of Swedish background”? The ones who dye their hair a darker shade in hope of passing by a group of “rowdy” youths without attracting their attention?
It’s important to remember that these high-spirited youths are in the habit of setting schools on fire and then waiting for the fire brigade so they can pelt them with stones.
And while they’re waiting, they keep an eye out for some of those cute little blonde chickies to help them pass the time…
Steen, Fjordman, and TB all deserve hat tips for this stuff.
