How Sweden Became a Gangster’s Paradise

How Sweden Became a Gangster’s Paradise

by Peder Jensen

After the Russian invasion of the Ukraine in February 2022, Sweden and Finland abandoned generations of neutrality to apply for membership in the NATO military alliance. However, there is already a gang war going on in Swedish streets, and it has nothing to do with Russia.

Between January and May 2023, Swedish police recorded on average one completed bomb detonation every two days. If you add the bombs that were in preparation, but not yet detonated, Sweden experienced one explosives-related crime per day. Rival gangs increasingly continue to target each other’s relatives with revenge attacks.

In early May 2023, National Police Commissioner Anders Thornberg stated that more than 1,000 people are initiated into criminal gangs across Sweden every year. Despite some arrests, the rate of recruitment shows no sign of slowing down. With three new recruits, many noticeably young, added every day, it is virtually impossible to reduce the total number of active gang members. Thornberg estimated that more than 30,000 people are now involved in gang violence in Sweden. For comparison, he stated that the number of police officers in Sweden is 22,600. The number of gang members already exceeds the number of police and keeps growing at an alarming rate. According to Thornberg, the situation is “extremely serious,” with organized crime infiltrating and corrupting the democratic society, the business world and the public sector.

That Sweden has become one of Europe’s most violent countries has finally attracted international attention. The French newspaper Le Monde lamented “Sweden’s powerlessness in the face of organized violence.” The paper quoted Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson from the Moderate Party stating that the situation is “uncontrollable” and may “get worse before it gets better.” Kristersson labelled the dozens of criminal gangs in Sweden “domestic terrorists.”

The ISIS Junior Varsity

A culture-enriching teenager in northern Italy was planning some boisterous activities in association with the civic group known as the Islamic State, but had the misfortune to be detained by the police. I’m sure it’s all just a misunderstanding, and the unfortunate lad will soon be released.

Actually, there’s no indication in the report as to the specific age of the young feller, who may in fact not even be a teenager yet. He might be one of those prepubescent ISIS “cubs” who spend a lot of time in training camps being tutored in special skills by the older mujahideen.

Bergamo: “Association for criminal purposes”

Juvenile supporter of ISIS arrested

May 30, 2023

A juvenile, an Italian citizen of foreign origin residing in the province of Bergamo, has been arrested and investigated for association for terrorist purposes, training, support, and instigation of aggravated delinquency. The monitoring by Digos agents in Bergamo and Brescia and by the Extremism and Terrorism Service of the Central Directorate of Prevention Police revealed that the young person was part of a network of ISIS supporters in various countries in Europe and America, many of whom were arrested in recent weeks. The investigations made it possible to ascertain that the boy was ready to go into action and that he was preparing an incendiary attack in the area in which he resides. In addition, the minor was found in possession of numerous materials linked to the Islamic State, among which were videos of executions and manuals relating to weapons and the packaging of bombs, which he also disseminated on the web, exhorting other youths to go into action.

When Rape is a Group Activity

When I began covering European issues more than fifteen years ago, gang rapes were relatively rare in Northern and Western Europe. And when they did happen, the perpetrators were always culture-enrichers. It just wasn’t a pastime that white guys engaged in.

In recent years gang rapes have become epidemic in Western Europe. And it’s still a culture-enriching practice: the huge increase is due to the flood of migrants that has overwhelmed the continent since the Great Migration Crisis of 2015.

The following essay talks about the latest statistics from Germany. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Report24. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Crime, Mass Migration

More and more gang rapes: Germany has a problem

In Germany there was a record high in gang rapes last year. Half of these crimes were committed by foreigners. Nothing is known about the migration background of the remaining perpetrators. We are talking about a serious problem that affects women’s safety.

A commentary by Heinz Steiner

In 2022 there were a total of 789 gang rapes in Germany. That’s an average of more than two such sexual assaults per day, or 15 per week. So every week an average of 15 lives are destroyed of women and girls who are abused by several men. And not only that: This is a new record. Back in 2021 there were 677 reported cases and in 2017 there were less than half with 380 such attacks.

But Germans themselves are hardly responsible for this. According to the statistics, foreigners — including mainly Syrians and Afghans — are responsible for half of these attacks, although a total of “only” about 1.3 million Syrians and Afghans are “seeking protection” in Germany. There is reason to assume that the majority of the other perpetrators also have an immigrant background, although these figures have not been collected or published. The generous granting of German citizenships during the last decades makes it difficult to evaluate backgrounds more precisely.

Nevertheless, it is clear that Germany has an imported problem in this regard. (By the way, a comparable problem can be seen in Scandinavian countries.) The mass influx of young men from predominantly Moslem countries, where different values and customs prevail, causes various complications. Above all, however, with such gang rapes these men show a will to degrade and humiliate the victims. This has little to do with the gratification of the instinct itself, as is usually the case with rape. Rather, it is a power play.

In Mohammedan culture, the coordinated communal sexual harassment of women is also known by the term “taharrush gamea”. This practice was brought to Europe thanks to liberal immigration policies. As the influx of immigrants from these countries continues, things are unlikely to get any better in the future. On the contrary: How long will it be before the sad record of 1,000 such attacks per year is reached? [More like, per day, but by then these guys will all have German citizenship.]

Saturday Night’s All Right For Fighting

The cultural enrichment of Milan proceeds apace. The following article concerns a violent enricher-vs.-enricher confrontation that took place yesterday in the heart of the city.

The author of the article thinks that the citizenry are becoming numb to the continual violence: “…it is all so constant that it causes a sort of anesthetic effect, capable of attenuating any indignation or amazement even in the face of events of extreme gravity.”

Fight between North Africans in central Milan: 18-year-old stabbed in Gae Aulenti Square

by Francesca Galici
May 28, 2023

In the middle of the city, on a spring Saturday afternoon, an 18-year-old Egyptian is stabbed by two peers in the heart of Milan’s nightlife.

Milan as Gotham City or as Sin City? By now, any comparison between the city administrated by [center-left mayor] Beppe Sala and the bloodiest and most violent cinematographic examples seems to be too bland. No day passes in which the news doesn’t tell of rapes, stabbings, fights, or violent robberies, which often, or almost always happen at the hands of illegal immigrants or just foreigners. And it is all so constant that it causes a sort of anesthetic effect, capable of attenuating any indignation or amazement even in the face of events of extreme gravity. The latest? A stabbing on a May afternoon in the central square of Gae Aulenti, in the middle of the day, steps away from Corso Como Boulevard and the nightlife, in the midst of families and passersby.

It was 7pm on Saturday afternoon in Milan at the hour of full family activity. Gae Aulenti Square has become one of the centers of shopping and entertainment in the city, and at that hour, before dinner, there are many who choose it for a stroll. Still, just yesterday, it was here that an 18-year-old Egyptian was stabbed by two peers, also North Africans. In fact, it was two other young men of North African origin, who first with punches, then with broken bottles and a knife, brought the other boy to death’s door.

Transported code red to San Gerardo Hospital in Monza. After initial checks, the doctors stabilized him and now the Egyptian is reportedly not in a life-threatening state, even if his condition remains serious. There are many witnesses who were present at the scene, among passersby and another group of young men who were probably with the two attackers. The Carabinieri of the Duomo Company who intervened after receiving the alarm arrived a few minutes later, quickly finding the knife used to carry out the attack, but now the hunt for the two young men has begun. Besides listening to the statements of those who were present during the violent attack, the Carabinieri are scanning the surveillance camera videos in the area to try to locate and identify the two young men who perpetrated the injury.

‘Love Jihad’ — Global Conquest by Any Means Necessary

‘Love Jihad’ — Global Conquest by Any Means Necessary

by Clare M. Lopez

This month, we include a few stories on a theme that doesn’t get much attention: so-called “Love Jihad”. In fact, this isn’t much about love at all, but the ‘right’ that Muslim men and boys claim is theirs to abduct, lure, and coerce non-Muslim women and girls to enter a relationship with them. Sometimes that means a forced marriage and sometimes it’s just plain rape. Either way, it’s officially sanctioned in Islam because the permission comes directly from the Qur’an.

“A Global Pandemic: The Jihadist Rape of Christian Women” by Raymond Ibrahim, Gatestone Institute, May 10, 2023

  • “Sexual violence is consistently chosen time and time again [by Muslim attackers] to target Christian women and girls across the globe…”

Paid Non-Muslim Shill for Islam is very upset that India’s Bollywood has produced a movie about ‘ Love Jihad’ — the true story exposing the countless cases of Muslims in India forcing Hindu and Christian girls to convert to Islam”, Bare Naked Islam, May 11, 2023

  • Not really about “love” at all, but indeed an ugly form of jihad: kidnapping or luring non-Muslim girls to relationships with Muslims, who then demand they convert to Islam and marry them

In India, boy meets girl, proposes — and gets accused of jihad” by Lauren Frayer, NPR, October 10, 2021

  • An older article, but on the same theme, which is not a ‘conspiracy theory’. This really happens, unfortunately often in the Asian subcontinent. Interfaith relationships between a Muslim man and a non-Muslim woman all too often involve deceit and coercion.

“Outrage over abduction, forceful conversion of 14-year-old Esther to Islam in Kaduna”, by Bertram Nwannekanma, The Guardian, 10 May 2023

  • This report comes from Nigeria, which has been under jihad assault for hundreds of years. Non-Muslim girls too often are in the news because they are kidnapped by Muslims, who brutalize and rape them, and try to forcibly convert them to Islam. Unfortunately, when the authorities are Muslim, they frequently side with the Muslim men.

“India: Muslims murder Muslim girl for being in love with Hindu boy”, by Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch, April 27, 2023

  • When it’s a Muslim girl in a relationship with a non-Muslim boy, it’s not OK. It’s only OK if a Muslim boy or man seeks a relationship, coerced or otherwise, with a non-Muslim girl. This comes directly from the Qur’an Surah 2:221 and has much to do with the Islamic preoccupation with the bloodline. Because any child born of a Muslim man is a Muslim according to Islamic law, but a child born to a Muslim woman and a non-Muslim man is not automatically a Muslim under Islamic Law (sharia), the former is sanctioned and the latter forbidden.

This is What a Real Hate Crime Looks Like

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Report24. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Cold-blooded murder in Bochum’s underground car park: Turk arrested — motive: hatred of Germans

At the beginning of March, a 58-year-old was literally executed in an underground car park in Bochum. After a difficult initial investigation, two suspects have now been arrested. The motive for the crime is said to be a mobile phone photo that the victim took of his killer during a traffic dispute — and: “anger and rejection of German citizens”.

On March 7, 58-year-old Christian N. was shot dead in his car in a communal underground car park on Bochum’s Hustadtring. This act, which resembled an execution, puzzled the investigators. The suspected shooter has now been identified and arrested. It is a 26-year-old Turkish man known to the police. [When aren’t they KNOWN to the police?] An arrest warrant was also issued against a 29-year-old fellow countryman and friend of the suspect who had picked him up by car after the crime.

The background to the crime is said to have been a dispute on the road, during which Christian N. took a cell phone photo of his future killer and refused to delete it. The trigger for the dispute is not known; there hadn’t been an accident. According to the police, N. was described by witnesses as particularly correct and law-abiding. Due to the 58-year-old’s stubborn refusal, the suspect called the police and complained. Then he followed his victim and found out where he lived. According to public prosecutor Philipp Rademacher, he had already planned to kill N. at this point. In fact, “anger and rejection of German citizens” also played a role, he said at a press conference in Bochum on Thursday.

On the morning of March 7, the 26-year-old with a criminal record ambushed the older man in the underground car park. When the victim started his car at 8.12 a.m., the suspect opened fire — a total of seven projectiles were found, five of them in the body of the dead man. Prosecutor Rademacher said the assailant walked around the car while he was firing and “fired” twice at point-blank range through the driver’s side window, certain to kill his victim. Witnesses only found the dead man in the driver’s seat of his car in the evening, and the engine continued to run all day.

Ultimately, the perpetrator himself had given the police the decisive clue with his complaint call, which was recorded. During their investigations, the “Garage” murder task force also evaluated the telephone traffic at the crime scene at the time of the crime and came across the number of the person who called in the complaint. The investigators were then able to link the same telephone number to a previously unsolved robbery of a Porsche in Dortmund at the end of 2022. A telephone with said number was switched on near the crime scene. When the 26-year-old’s apartment was searched, not only was the murder weapon found — a nine-millimeter pistol with rare ammunition that is not legally available in Germany — but also the ignition key of the Porsche. The vehicle was seized shortly after the theft.

What does Interior Minister Faeser, who is close to Antifa, say about this case? Did Christian N. have to die because of a nullity or because of his nationality? The question arises as to why people immigrate to a country whose native population they hate and reject. It has been proven that many immigrants from Muslim countries reject the Western lifestyle and do not want to integrate into local society. It is remarkable that the perpetrator’s obvious racism against Germans (which, according to the Left, cannot even exist) has made it into mainstream reporting. Who knows in how many cases such a motive for the crime was hidden under the myth of the mentally ill individual perpetrator?

Another Great Prisoner Swap

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from 7sur7.be:

“A black day for the rule of law”: Iranian opposition denounces Assadi-Vandecasteele exchange

Rik Vanreusel, the lawyer for the Iranian opposition, denounced the exchange of the Iranian diplomat Assadolah Assadi and Olivier Vandecasteele. “ This is a victory for the cynical politics of power. The party can now begin in Iran,” he charged on the airwaves of Radio 1 (VRT).

Even if the Belgian lawyer says he is happy that the humanitarian is on his way home to rejoin his family, he can only denounce the liberation of Assadolah Assadi, sentenced to 20 years in prison by Belgian justice for attempted murder and terrorism. “His dozens of victims also have rights,” he said. Rik Vanreusel also claims that the government did not inform his clients of the exchange of prisoners.

“In Iran, the crowns of flowers are already prepared, the party can begin. It is a victory for the cynical politics of power, but for me, it is a somber day for the rule of law,” he lamented.

As a reminder, Assadolah Assadi was arrested in Belgium for his role in the preparation of a terrorist attack against a meeting of the National Council of the Iranian Resistance (CNRI) in 2018 near Paris.

German Police Told to Go Easy on Culture-Enrichers

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Boris Reitschuster’s website. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Instruction to the police: “Control as few migrants as possible”

Another conspiracy theory come true

Wow, someone said that the police often don’t look too closely at migrants. Or worse — that there are corresponding instructions from above. Anyone who says or writes something like this must expect to be immediately defamed as a “conspiracy ideologue” — the New German word for “heretic”. Or even as “Right”, which, thanks to years of red-green brainwashing, is now considered by many to be a synonym for “Nazi”, which is doubly wrong: Because “Right” is just as legitimate a political direction as “Left”. And because the word “Nazi” is used instead of “National Socialist” primarily to disguise the socialist part of National Socialism.

But back to the police. What used to be political blasphemy can now be read in the country’s largest newspaper: the Bild. However, only behind a paywall, which in addition to the usual function — making money — also has the function of a political chastity belt. Because what can only be read by paying subscribers could actually worry the public. Especially those who continue to look at what is happening in our country through rose-coloured glasses. Or look away in apathy.

Dortmund may soon become German [football] champion. But the city in North Rhine-Westphalia is also record-breaking in other respects. “Violence, brutal attacks on residents — and no help from the police” — this is how the Bild summarizes the complaints of local businessmen from Dortmund’s northern district. The whole thing culminated in August 2022, when the 16-year-old Senegalese Mouhamed D. was shot dead during a police operation.

After a report by Bild about the unbelievable conditions between Borsigplatz and Nordmarkt in Dortmund, frustrated police officers from the responsible “Nord station” reported to the newspaper. What they report is alarming. And it should also be read outside of the paywall.

One of the officers says: “We have fewer and fewer colleagues; sometimes shifts have been reduced by ten police officers. In the morning and night shift, there are often only two patrol cars for the entire northern part of the city. We actually think Interior Minister Reul is good, he also promises more police officers. We always say he can’t know anything about it, otherwise he would do something and not allow it.” [Dream on.]

Deliberate criminalization

Another officer said: “No matter how we do the job, our leadership at police headquarters is dissatisfied. Everyone just wants to go somewhere else, write requests for reassignment. 41 of 61 colleagues now want to leave. Colleagues have resigned inside their heads. If there are allegations, whether from intensive offenders or left-wing extremists, you will be dropped immediately. We no longer have a presumption of innocence. Rather, there is a deliberate criminalization of colleagues.”

Since the deadly shots last year, the problems have increased considerably, according to an official, as per text: “We were clearly told by the presidium to check as few migrants as possible, the situation would be tense anyway because of the dead Senegalese. But who should we then check in Nordstadt, where almost only migrants live? In addition, the task forces were stamped out; we can no longer monitor hotspots at all; we only rush from one operation to the next.”

“Germans” Plot Terror Attack Against Swedish Church

The ripples from Rasmus Paludan’s Koran burnings continue to spread outwards: two Syrian brothers have been arrested in Germany for plotting a suicide bombing against a Swedish church. The bien-pensants of Svenska kyrkan were just as appalled by Mr. Paludan’s actions as were Muslims in Sweden, but that doesn’t matter — the Swedish church must pay for the sins of the notorious Islamophobe.

As a matter of interest, the incident has a very low Mohammed Coefficient of 0%.

Bothers arrested for terror plans against Swedish church

by Ebba Torstensson
May 24, 2023

The brothers Anas Kiwan, 28 and Ahmad Kiwan, 24 were arrested in Germany, suspected of planning a terror attack, writes Bild.

The Koran burnings in Sweden earlier this year are reportedly the reason for the terror plans.

“We have been able to establish that the target was a Swedish church, but we cannot go into details as to which church or where it was located in Sweden,” says Chief Prosecutor Oechtering to TT [Swedish news].

The two brothers, who are Syrian citizens, were arrested in Germany a month ago.

Anas Kiwan, 28, was arrested in Hamburg. During the arrest, police found components that can be used to make an explosive device. According to the German newspaper Die Welt, it was a bomb belt that would be used in the crime.

The younger brother, Ahmad Kiwan, 24, was arrested in Kempten in Bavaria. Since the arrest, the suspicions against him have been strengthened. He was first detained Tuesday and is now suspected to have been directly involved in plans to attack a Swedish church. A preliminary investigation is now underway, and it may be some time before an eventual charge is filed.

Visited Sweden for terror planning

The German prosecutor Liddy Oechtering will not go into which Swedish church was the target of the attack. “The investigators have gone through emails and chats between the brothers, and could see that it concerned a Swedish church. But the investigation continues. What I can say is that it appears to have something to do with the Koran burnings that took place in Sweden and which have been well-reported in German media,” says Chief Prosecutor Liddy Oechtering to TT.

The brothers have reportedly lived in Germany for several years and have no reported criminal record. The plans for the terrorist crime may be based on an Islamist motive, but there is no concrete connection to the so-called Islamic State (IS), Welt writes. There is also suspicion against them for terror financing.

Koran burnings in Sweden

The National Center for Terror Threat Assessment reported in its assessment for the entire year on March 8 that Sweden has gone from a legitimate target to a priority target for a terror attack. Säpo [Security Police] will not comment on whether they have had contacts with German authorities. “We won’t go into that. As far as our international cooperation is concerned, we don’t go into what it looks like. That is part of our operational work,” says Säpo’s press spokesperson Gabriel Wernstedt to TT.

France is Concerned About Islamists

French Minister of the Interior Gerald Darmanin has been in urgent consultation with U.S. officials about the danger of “Islamist” terrorism in Europe.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Le Figaro:

In New York, Darmanin is alarmed over a “resumption” in Europe of an “Islamist terrorist” menace

May 20, 2023

The minister of the interior has asked the American government to strengthen its anti-terrorist cooperation before the Paris Olympics in 2024.

The French Minister of the Interior, Gerald Darmanin, on a visit to the US, expressed alarm Friday over a “resurgence” of the “Islamist terrorist” menace in Europe and asked the American government to reinforce its anti-terrorist cooperation.

“We have come to remind them that for the Europeans and for France, the primary risk is Sunni Islamist terrorism and that anti-terrorist collaboration between the intelligence services is absolutely indispensable,” Gerald Darmanin stressed during an interview with Agence France Presse in New York. And, “at a time when the Americans, perhaps, have a more national view of disputes — white supremacism, mass shootings, conspiracy — they must not forget that for us in Europe, the primary menace appears to be Sunni terrorism,” the French minister insisted.

Gerald Darmanin completed his two-day trip to Washington, New York, and the UN, after boosting police and legal cooperation between France and the US, provided for in a 2016 agreement for the fight against terrorism and major crimes. He met with Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, then visited the FBI Academy at Quantico, Virginia. In New York he met with the NYPD Chief, Keechant Sewell, to discuss the maintenance of public order and security at major international events, citing the Olympic Games — 2024 in Paris (26 July-11 August 2024), the Rugby World Cup (8 September-28 October 2023) and the visit of Pope Francis to Marseille on 23 September.

“The threat resumes”

In this context, but without invoking precise dangers, Gerald Darmanin affirmed that “the risk is resuming concerning Islamist terrorism” which would again target France and its European neighbors. He pointed to “an internal danger of persons without networks who, becoming radicalized, go on to take action within a few hours, a few days… Someone who takes a knife, goes into a bakery, and kills people.” And “there is the external risk, people organized outside of France, who come to France to carry out an attack like the one at Bataclan,” in Paris on 13 September 2015.

Gerald Darmanin also deplored the “departure of the Americans from Afghanistan,” and that of France from the “Sahelo-Saharan Strip,” the “reconstruction of Daesh cells in the Levant, who make up these external dangers within the perspective of large events that France is organizing, represent moments of important risks of terrorist attacks.”

The End of Democracy in Sweden?

Rasmus Paludan is the founder and leader of the Stram Kurs (Hard Line) party in Denmark and Sweden. Despite eleven Swedish court rulings affirming Mr. Paludan’s right to hold a public demonstration in which a Koran is burned, the police authority has denied him a permit in every case. The courts instructed the police to grant the permits, but the police ignored them.

The courts ruled not only that the police actions were illegal, but also that they violated the country’s constitution. So Rasmus Paludan has the right to burn Korans, but that makes no difference: in response to his action Muslims get angry, stone the police, and burn vehicles. Therefore Mr. Paludan’s blasphemy must stop, and hang the constitution!

The following report is from Samhällsnytt. Our Swedish correspondent LN has kindly translated it:

Reports: Police break the law to stop Paludan — on orders from the government

by Mats Dagerlind
May 21, 2023

Despite being convicted on at least ten occasions for stopping the freedom demonstrations of Danish-Swedish lawyer, party leader and Islamic critic Rasmus Paludan in violation of the Swedish constitution, the police continued to deny him a permit and even issued a special interim blasphemy law prohibiting the burning of a single book — the Koran. Whether or not Sweden will remain a democracy is now in question — the Court of Appeals will decide.

Paludan’s Koran burning triggered Muslim intifadas in Sweden of a kind previously associated with the Middle East. 200 police officers were stoned and some 20 police vehicles were stolen and/or set on fire.

The Koran riots last April were uncomfortable proof for the multiculturalist political and media establishment that the integration of non-Western migrants is working even worse than feared and that Islam is not compatible with the fundamental democratic values of the West.

Decides to shoot the messenger

But instead of acknowledging their political failure, they chose to shoot the messenger. Paludan was painted as a right-wing extremist for defending constitutional civil liberties against anti-democratic Muslim forces. The police were pressured by the government and opposition parties to stop Paludan’s progress.

With lies and excuses, the authority denied Paludan a permit to demonstrate in one place after another or sabotaged the demonstrations by moving them at the last minute to hidden parking lots where no one could attend.

Appeals to the courts and gets it right — ten times

Paludan, who is a trained lawyer, took the police actions to court and won at least ten rulings in five different courts, where they unequivocally clarified that the police had violated both ordinary laws and the constitution in rejecting Paludan’s applications for a demonstration permit. But, despite this, the police continued to deny Paludan a permit.

When the burning of Korans took on a further uncomfortable dimension for the political establishment by illustrating Sweden’s kowtowing to Turkey’s Islamist semi-dictator Erdogan in order to secure Sweden’s entry into NATO, the police chose to go one step further and issued a general ban on burning Korans. No other books were included in the ban.

Inside sources testify to political pressure

Sources inside the police now confirm the picture of an authority under pressure from the political establishment backed by the media to break the laws instead of enforcing them, and also for political purposes to silence uncomfortable opposition voices, a function that law enforcement often performs in totalitarian countries.

This is a development that the then-Social Democratic government and its supporting parties warned could become a reality if right-wing conservative supposedly “authoritarian” forces such as the Sweden Democrats gained political influence in Sweden. Instead, it is now clear in black and white that it is the left-liberal parties that have pushed Sweden in an authoritarian direction.

The investigation that reveals this has not been conducted by conservative media actors who might be suspected of having an interest in conveying a negative image of the left-liberal parties’ policy of appeasement towards Islam and authoritarian treatment of their political opponents. Instead, it has been carried out by the left-liberal Dagens Nyheter.

Dialogue police on the side of Paludan and democracy

Fredrik Jonsson works as a so-called dialog police officer. This is an often heavily criticized part of the police’s work, which involves grilling sausages, eating pizza, kicking a ball and dancing with thugs. The activities are justified on the grounds that they strengthen confidence in the police and Swedish society among “vulnerable” immigrant groups. Critics argue that the police instead make themselves a laughingstock and lose all respect among gang-bangers when they try to act as social workers.

Jonsson is not inherently fond of Paludan’s tactic of provoking and angering Muslims to show their true anti-democratic and violent face. But he still considers it serious that people think they have the right to act in the name of good when they restrict civil rights and freedoms in order to silence him.

“Paludan’s personality and his inflammatory style means that he obscures the view. Then you don’t see what this is really about, that Swedish freedom of expression is under threat,” he told DN.

Why Does Biden Want to ‘Include’ People Who Want to Kill Us?

The following report by Clare Lopez was published earlier this month by Sharia TipSheet.

Why Does Biden Want to ‘Include’ People Who Want to Kill Us?

by Clare M. Lopez

Our articles this month focus on the Biden administration’s embrace of Islamic Movement/Muslim Brotherhood pet themes timed for the end of Ramadan on 21 April 2023. As many of us may know — but the Biden administration seems not to — the last day of Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, is the Islamic commemoration of the 624 CE Battle of Badr, in which Muslim forces defeated Jews on the field of battle for the first time. President Biden’s announcement of a new inter-agency task force to tackle ‘Islamophobia’ was timed to mark this occasion along with a statement congratulating Muslims on their month of Ramadan. Although FBI ‘hate crime’ statistics show that Jews and other groups are far more often targeted than Muslims in America, the Biden administration seems determined to demonstrate its ‘inclusivity’ credentials.

  • A good, comprehensive listing of the Biden administration’s extensive team of Muslim staffers, many of whom have long been affiliated in one way or another with Muslim Brotherhood front groups
  • Editor’s Note — With all due respect to the author, there are no ‘Islamists’. Jihad and sharia supremacy come straight from standard Islamic doctrine, not from fringe or ‘Islamist’ interpretations of Islam. As Turkish President Erdogan put it: “Recently the concept of ‘moderate Islam’ has received attention. But the patent of this concept originated in the West… Islam cannot be either ‘moderate’ or ‘not moderate.’ Islam can only be one thing.”

Allah Frowns on LGBTQ

As the Western civil order continues to deteriorate, before a totalitarian New Normal can emerge an inevitable conflict will break out between the Socialist intersectionals and the devotees of Mohammed. The two groups of religious fanatics are utterly incompatible with each other, and only one can emerge triumphant. The best outcome would be for each side to spray AK-47 fire at the other simultaneously, leaving the field strewn with the corpses of fighters for both groups. Alas, that outcome is very unlikely. For what it’s worth, my money’s on the Muslims.

The following report concerns friction between the promoters of sexual perversion and the soldiers of Allah. The incident in question occurred at a school in the Flemish city of Genk.

“Allahu Akhbar!” Students in Limburg school jeer and spit on LGBTQ flag

Two municipal employees and a volunteer from the LGBTQ+OGWA association were verbally attacked by students of a technical school in Genk (Limburg province) on Thursday. “Allahu Akhbar” was intoned by several dozen college students while spitting on the LGBTQ flag. “The atmosphere was deleterious,” testified one of the attacked persons. The images led to general indignation on social media.

An event to raise awareness on homophobia completely degenerated at Atlas Technical College in Genk. This event took place within the framework of the Global Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHO), which was to be celebrated May 17.

May 17 was chosen as a symbolic date to commemorate the decision of the World Health Organization on May 17, 1990 to no longer consider homosexuality as a mental disease.

“We were set up in the playground during the break distributing pamphlets and rainbow-colored hearts,” explains one of the people abused. “Not everyone agrees with us, but yesterday, the atmosphere was very electric. A group of youths gathered around our table and began to jeer us.”

Bottle throwing and spitting

A crowd formed, and more and more students gathered around the table. According to the targeted employees, there were more than a hundred at one point. The situation completely degenerated. “They kept on shouting, throwing bottles, and spitting on the rainbow hearts. We were aided by the professors present on the playground who supported us until the bell rang. At that time, most of the youths returned to class, and calm was restored.”

Municipal authorities strongly condemned the actions. “This behavior touches me profoundly. I am disconcerted,” laments Anniek Nagels (CD&V party), deputy to the mayor for the Culture of Living Together. “Genk is synonymous with a respectful society, where everyone can be themselves.” The city of Genk will lodge a complaint and consult with the establishment.

The school also disapproves of the behavior of the students. “We are shocked by what happened yesterday; it is completely unacceptable,” reacts the director general, Christel Schepers. “This does not correspond to what the school represents. That is why we are taking measures. We will initiate a dialogue with the students in the coming weeks, and we will address the question in collaboration with the city.”
