A Syrian Success Story From Sweden

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Nyheter Idag:

Mortada raped girl in school toilet — threatened to kill girl’s family

UMEÅ — The 16-year-old Syrian Mortada forced a female student to follow him into the toilet in a school in Umeå. There he raped her. Now he has been sentenced by the Umeå court for, among other things, rape, unlawful threats, and abuse. Due to his age, he will escape jail, and is sentenced instead to juvenile care. There will be no deportation.

It was on May 16 of last year that Mortada met his victim in the Grubbe School in Umeå. He had met the girl some months before, and now he called her over to him. After the two smoked a cigarette, she wanted to go off to a class, but Mortada had other plans.

She tried to leave the scene but was stopped by Mortada, who used words as well as physical means; he laid his hand on her shoulder. He later began to say that he was horny, and he wanted to lay with someone. He asked her if she could come home to his place, but she said that because of her class, she didn’t want to. He tried to persuade her and said that they could have sex in a toilet which was located near the entrance of the school, but she didn’t want to.

Mortada continued to insist, and among other things, he invited the girl to work in the local drug business in exchange for sex in the toilet. When the girl continued to turn down the invitations, Mortada’s tone became sharper.

From the judgment:

“He went on to say that if she didn’t want to have sex with him, then he would do harm to her family members; he said that he would kill her younger sister.

“Mortada also pointed to the ground and said, ‘your family will be there’. Mortada said that he would have someone kill her family members. He also made a gesture drawing his finger across his throat.”

The girl became desperate, and in the end gave in to Mortada’s threat and went into the toilet, where Mortada raped her, partially using physical force.

Swedish Police Chick: “I’m Very Concerned That the Society Has Become So Tolerant”

The following video is a follow-up to the earlier one about “Svenne”, the young Swedish man who was robbed, beaten, and urinated on by his culture-enriching persecutors.

The clip features an interview with a female police chief from the area of Sweden where Svenne was so grievously humiliated. This time we stray just a little bit beyond the pale of politically correct discourse — “vulnerable areas” (i.e. no-go zones inhabited by non-Swedish ethnicities) are discussed, and the issue of ethnicity is briefly touched on. Gingerly, but the fact that it is even mentioned is significant.

The “Right to Asylum” vs. “Hard Returns”

A potential rift has opened within Europe between the European Commission and the European Court of Human Rights. The latter has issued a ruling that permits the “hard return” of illegal migrants, which runs contrary to the policies of the EC.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from the Spanish daily El Pais:

Brussels supports the ruling in favor of “hot returns”

The European Commissioner of the Interior defends the right to ask for asylum, but considers that this right “cannot be offered at each meter of the border”

Neither stupor nor surprise, rather support. The European Commission considers the sentence of the European Court of Human Rights in favor of Spain in the case of the immediate return of sub-Saharan immigrants who jumped the fence at Melilla in 2014 to be logical and compatible with current community legislation.

Ylva Johansson (Sweden, 56), European Commissioner of the Interior and in charge of negotiating the future European policy of asylum and immigration, assures in statements to El Pais that “the right of asking for asylum must always be granted”. However, she considers that that right “cannot be offered at every meter of the border,” and that the member states should have the power to indicate the points where the request should be made.

The unexpected turn of the Strasbourg Court, which in a prior ruling had rejected the “hot return”, and the alignment of the commission denote the progressive hardening of the EU migration policy. The organization was shaken in 2015 by a migration crisis that shook the foundations of the Union, cracked the Schengen Zone [internal border controls continue among several EU members] and was at the point of bringing down a leader as powerful as the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. In 2015 more than 1.2 million people requested asylum in the EU, double that of the previous year. Germany registered 5,400 petitions for each million inhabitants, Austria, 9,900, and Hungary, 17,700. The flow was closed after an agreement between the EU and Turkey to retain the exodus from the Syrian war in exchange for €6,000,000,000.

Johansson has among the specific tasks of her mandate to mend the wounds left by that crisis and recoup the confidence among countries at odds, with Merkel’s Germany and Orbán’s Hungary as symbols of the respective sides. After a commission presided over by Jean-Claude Juncker, clearly aligned with the open principle defended by Merkel, the current president, Ursula von der Leyen, has built bridges to Hungary and Poland in search of a consensus that still seems difficult.

The tactic, for now, is to offer Budapest and Warsaw the promise of reinforced exterior borders and the commitment that illegal immigrants will be returned to their countries of origin as expeditiously as possible. This Thursday’s ruling seems to open the way for some hot returns, which till now had been interpreted as being contrary to community rights.

Svenne Speaks Up

I’ve posted a couple of times about a young Swedish man who was robbed, beaten, and urinated on by culture-enrichers in Stockholm. He has now been interviewed for the media report below, and is given the pseudonym “Liam” by the reporters. I’m going to stick with “Svenne” (which is a pejorative term for “Swede” used by Muslim immigrants), however, because is what Svenne’s attackers called him, generally preceded by “f***ing”.

Notice the way everyone involved with this news report assiduously avoids discussing the cuture-enriching aspects of the crime.

Nothing Swedish Here…

The ripples continue to spread from the Scandinavia-negating video commercial by SAS. The graphic below is one example (hat tip LN), as is the brief satirical essay below it by Thomas Bertonneau.

Nothing Swedish here…

by Thomas F. Bertonneau

There is nothing characteristically Swedish about generic person Fred Åkerström’s vintage televised performance of the entirely forgettable Fredmann’s Epistle No. 48“Solen glimmar blank och trind” [“The Sun is Shining Smooth and Round”] — by the generic poet-musician Carl Michael Bellman (1740-1795), who only accidentally wrote in Swedish. Notice Åkerström’s two accompanists — the Bantu flutist and the Samoyed violoncellist. It is well known that Bellman’s poetry is based on the oral traditions of the ancient Peruvians, which were culturally appropriated by the Vikings during their imperialistic voyages in the eleventh century. Of course, there was nothing characteristically Scandinavian about the Vikings either. Their “dragon ships” were plagiarized from the hull-form of the Polynesian Kon-Tiki rafts.

Below are the first three stanzas in English. The full verses may be found here.

The sun is shining bright and round
The water is like a mirror
After a while a wind starts blowing
into slacking sails
The pennant is unfolded and with an oar
Olle is standing on a hay-boat
Kerstin comes out from the cabin
locks the door

The steel is shining, the pipe is light
Olle scratches his ear
The rudder is turned, the boat turns around
The old man is busy
Beneath strong eyebrows
he grins against the sun in the sky
Kerstin, the sweetheart of the old man
will tend to the sails now

The sails are flapping, the boat is moving forward
Jerker grabs his lyre
The lyre hums, the waves hit against the boat
With force and frenzy
The boat creaks, fragile, thin
The wind is seen in the top of the boat
The rooster crows so harsh and hoarse
The clock just struck four

Denny Abrahamsson Experiences the Full Force of Swedish “Justice”

Our Swedish correspondent LN has compiled a report on the persecution by Sweden’s “justice” system of a Swede named Denny Abrahamsson, who committed the unpardonable crime of saying negative things about Islam on social media.

First, LN’s prefatory note:

The government and agencies in Sweden are constantly working to reinforce anarcho-fascist tyranny. State-funded denunciation, primarily through the “Net Hate Examiner”, of forbidden thoughts spoken or published, or so-called “net hate crimes” against foreigners, Muslims, etc., is growing all the time. 2019 was a record year for the Net Hate Examiner’s operations: “We are up by 1400-1500 cases”.

Below is a typical example showing the result of such a state-sponsored denunciation, from Samhällsnytt, February 14, 2020.

The translated article:

Denny Abrahamsson, 73, is a native of Stockholm, but lives during the winter season in Thailand. After a defeat in the Court of Appeals, the Net Hate Examiner has notified him again, and now he will stand trial. Thai doctors discourage him from flying home, but Stockholm District Court rejects the certificates and threatens the pensioner with a fine.

Samhällsnytt has previously reported on Denny Abrahamsson who, after a long battle with the judiciary, was finally acquitted in the High Court (Hovrätten) on the charge of incitement of hatred against an ethnic group. At that time he was charged, among other things, for writing that Islam is a “fascist ideology”. However, it did not take long before he was denounced again to the police by the same actor (the Net Hate Examiner) as last time.

Previously: 71-year-old Denny called Islam “fascist ideology” — was prosecuted with hatred against ethnic Group.

Excerpt from the lawsuit:

Responsibility claims, etc.

Hatred Against a Group of People

5000 K352049-17

Denny Abrahamsson has expressed disdain for Muslims with a creed. He has written several posts in an open group on Facebook with anti-Muslim content. The messages are propagated by being available on Facebook. It happened on March 17, 2017 in an unknown place, Stockholm city.

Denny Abrahamsson committed the act with intent.

Legal basis: Chapter 16 § 8 § 1 of the Criminal Code

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

Samhällsnytt has had access to police interviews with the man. According to the interrogation, he is now suspected, among other things, of having written on Facebook that “low-IQ cultures do not mix well with high-IQ societies” and that “cousin marriage and inbreeding in Islamic culture cause birth defects, low IQ and aggression.”

This was reported to the police by the state-funded Net Hate Examiner sometime in 2018.

Since then, the trial date has been moved several times, finally to January 27 of this year. Abrahamsson has sent two medical certificates from Thai doctors showing that his legs have swollen, probably as a result of blood clots. He has been prescribed blood thinners to take to dissolve the clots. At the same time, he is advised against air travel for more than four hours, for the reason that blood clots are often formed after sitting still for too long and can settle into the heart or lungs at risk to life.
