A Culture-Enriching Easter in Sweden

I’m posting this now, because by the time I get up in the morning, the window of opportunity for an Easter terrorist attack in Sweden (and the rest of Europe) will already have passed.

Terror threat against churches at Easter

March 28, 2024

Before Easter and in the wake of the Muslim terror attack in Moscow, the terror threat in Europe has lately been judged as high. In addition to Easter masses, many large events are coming up in Sweden, such as Eurovision in Malmö.

At least 137 people were killed in the terror attack against Crocus City Hall outside Moscow. In France, the terror threat level has been raised to the highest level, and in Germany, an “acute risk” is accessed. In Italy, armed police will be on patrol.

On the eve of Easter, which is the Swedish Church’s busiest period of the year after Christmas, the country’s churches are on guard.

The Swedish Church’s civil preparedness chief Lisa-Gun Bernerstedt tells SVD news that there is no information that the church would be especially singled out, but that all faith communities should be alert.

“It is clear that with an increased threat level, preparations and awareness have increased. The importance of making assessments prior to every event that brings in a lot of people is important,” she tells the newspaper.

Regardless of the world situation, the Swedish Church will remain open, and wants to “signal its presence, openness, and hope.”

Eurovision in Malmö

The beginning of May is the time for Eurovision in Sweden’s most multicultural and Islamized city, Malmö, and both the municipality and police are working intensively on security. According to police, 100,000 people are expected in the city during the event.

“Even though what happened in Moscow is unfortunate, it does not directly influence our preparation prior to Eurovision. But it is clear that we closely follow what happens around the world. And if there is a chain of events that in some way affects Sweden’s security, then we will check that out as well,” says the police spokesperson for Eurovision in Malmö, Nils Norling.

Norwegian churches potential targets

In Norway, security police warn that churches and Christian gatherings may be targets for terrorism during Easter.

Police, who are usually unarmed in Norway, have been given permission to carry weapons during the holidays.

One thought on “A Culture-Enriching Easter in Sweden

  1. Filthy bastards! I think we should begin a re-organization and re-enlistment of the troops who served one thousand years ago in the Crusades. I realize that mistakes were made, such as what happened in Constantinople c. 1215, but we need to stop taking s#*! from these inbred ME morons. Trying to appease these rats only prolongs the misery.
