The Muezzin Will Not Be Silenced in Karlskrona

The Sweden Democrats of Karlskrona tried to stop the Islamic call to prayer from being ululated in their town, but they failed.

SD (Sweden Democrats) voted down— Yes to continued call to prayer in Karlskrona

January 31, 2019

After a long and intense debate in the General Council, the motion of the Sweden Democrats to forbid religious calls in public space in Karlskrona was voted down.

The Islamic Cultural Association in Karlskrona may continue their calls to prayer from their mosque in Kungsmarken during the Friday prayer.

The mosque in Karlskrona now has all the permits that are required from the police and municipality.

But the Sweden Democrats want to change the local order charter, and suggested in a motion that “no religious call can be made in public space.” The Sweden Democrats maintain that religious freedom also means a right to avoid hearing religious messages, such as a call to prayer.

“One should not impose on anyone,” says Robert Andersson (SD).

Several members argued that that the question of religious freedom cannot be settled by changing a local charter.

“I think that the trade-offs and limits of religious freedom belong to the Parliament. We can’t have one religious freedom in Karlskrona and another somewhere else,” says Börje Dovstad (L).

The motion was voted down with a tally of 39-29. Five members were absent, and two abstained from voting.

How each individual member voted in the vote will not be made public until next week. However, according to the chairman of the council, Gunilla Ekelöf, nobody deviated from their respective party lines.

“M, KD and SD (parties) voted for the motion. And SW, C, L, MP and V voted against,” says Gunilla Ekelöf.

Greta Thunberg, the Teenage Spear Point of Radical Climate-Change Alarmists

A Swedish teenager named Greta Thunberg has gained international fame by starting the “school strike” movement to stop “climate change”. She even spoke at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos.

I suppose you could say she’s the Ahmed the Clock Boy of the environmental movement — a photogenic kid guaranteed to tug at the heartstrings of Progressives who get all mush-brained about the Puir Wee Bairns.

Nash Montana, who translated the material below, sends these extra details on Greta Thunberg:

Who is this girl, who is supposedly 16 years old but looks and talks like she’s four? She who is now being hyped up as the spokesperson for thousands of school-ditching kids? She is the product of her parents and of an eco-communist media world that has almost destroyed her early on in life in order to use her:

“Greta Thunberg was born to the Opera singer Malena Ernman and the actor Svante Thunberg. According to her own statements when she was 8 years old she became interested in climate change and she engaged in environmental protectionism by keeping the lights off in her house. Later she decided not to fly anymore. At age 11 she became depressive and started to self-harm and quit eating due to her anxiety about the climate. She then was diagnosed with the Asperger’s syndrome, OCD, and selective mutism. Later she engaged herself publicly against climate change.”

The translated article from Apollo News:

A student’s look at Greta Thunberg: How the climate-changers have instrumentalized a girl

The 16-year-old Swedish student Greta Thunberg has become the symbol of a young person who doesn’t want to be cheated out of her future. But she is a sick child who is being instrumentalized by the green elites in a perverse way.

The figurehead of climate change, at least according to the media, is Greta Thunberg. The by now 16-year-old Swedish girl has for weeks been in the spotlight. With her campaign “school strike for the climate” she has (supposedly) inspired millions of students and encouraged them, to demonstrate for “better climate politics”. Young people are fighting for a political issue: We here at the LJB do the same. But nonetheless I have to exercise criticism here, especially now, as I just became of legal age, that I am a young adult.

To pull off a political movement as a student is quite a lot of work. We experience this every day. For me, each week is a new balancing act, to write for Apollo while at the same time be prepared for final exams and other school requirements. But I get it all done — and mind you, without my just walking out of school on a Friday. Maybe I could organize that: School strike for Liberty. [He writes “Freiheit”, freedom, but I think in this case he means “liberty”… but it could be debated, I guess. —translator]

No doubt most people who emulate Greta and go to demonstrate believe the message they are representing. And I certainly don’t want to open that can of worms about climate change, because for that I have neither time nor space. Let’s just say it this way: A lot what so-called “climate activists say” can be thoroughly doubted. And still the narrative of the impending climate apocalypse is being pushed through the mainstream media as if there’s literally no tomorrow. Should we therefore blame these kids when they believe this stuff? If at all, then only conditionally.

Great Thunberg was born in the year 2003. The student has been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, OCD, and “selective mutism”, which is a psychological condition in which patients suddenly stop speaking. At age 8, according to her own statements, she began to be interested in climate change. This led her into a full-blown depression at 11 years old, including refusal to eat.

Let’s be honest here: a girl that because of a political position develops full-blown depression at 11 years old is not really suitable to be the mouthpiece for such a campaign. A girl like that needs help. Meanwhile she is advocating for very radical positions: “For me most things are black or white,” Thunberg wrote in The Guardian (which is a classical example of a borderline disorder). In plain text: Completely and utterly, or not at all. And for Greta, the choice is clear: Completely and utterly. So capitalism has to fall as a consequence. She calls for a boycott of Black Friday and demands basic changes in consumption and lifestyle. As is more often than not the case, anti-capitalism and “environmental protection” again go hand in hand. We do not know whether she was co-opted by the political Left or whether she is just used much more as a poster child.

Meet the New Government — Same as the Old Government

Four months ago a general election was held in Sweden. The major parties lost ground, and Sverigedemokraterna — the Sweden Democrats — posted big gains.

For four months the larger parties met and discussed and negotiated with only one purpose in mind: to keep the Sweden Democrats out of any coalition government. Any combination of parties would have been acceptable, as long as Sverigedemokraterna was not included. That’s because SD opposes mass immigration and Islamization, which is considered an absolutely unacceptable and forbidden political position in Modern Multicultural Sweden.

Two days ago a deal was finally struck, and a government was formed: a coalition of the Social Democrats with the Greens. That’s exactly the same as the previous government that was formed in 2014. The only difference is that the two parties fared so poorly in the election that the new government is a minority one — 116 seats out of 349 in parliament, slightly less than one-third of the total.

It’s one of the weakest minority governments in Swedish history, but at least it doesn’t have any of those evil Nazi WAYCIST Sweden Democrats in it!

The Twilight of Sweden

The two videos below illustrate different aspects of the migrant-embracing zeitgeist in Modern Multicultural Sweden.

The first shows various functionaries in the educational establishment talking about the increased level of violence and intimidation in Swedish schools. Well… at least they’re talking about it, even if they never ever mention cultural enrichment as a factor. One administrator acknowledges the increase, but thinks it’s possible that members of the public have simply become more alert and are reporting more of the problems.

So it goes in Sweden.

Many thanks to Kronanse Martell for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Margot Wallström is Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister for the current Swedish government. In the following clip she is speaking about Islam in parliament in early January 2019.

Compare and contrast her laudatory statements about the Religion of Peace with the footage Vlad has appended to the video, which was recorded a year previously. In it you see Muslim demonstrators marching past the Israeli embassy in Sweden while chanting their hatred of the Jews — and also “Long live Margot Wallström!”

When is a Beheading Not a Beheading?

When a Scandinavian girl gets decapitated by a mujahid in Morocco. Then it’s a “knife wound to the neck”.

If you’re a Swedish media snoid, that is.

Ingrid Carlqvist talked about all this in her interview last month. The following brief article discusses the same phenomenon. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this piece from Nyheter Idag:

“Knife wounds to the neck”— SVT continues to minimize the beheadings

The most problematic thing about the beheadings in connection with the murders in Morocco is not the act itself, but that people spread the video on social media of what actually happened. That is how state SVT [Swedish state TV] Rapport may be summarized when they focus on the fact that it may be criminal to spread the beheading video, the incident that the public service outlet calls “knife wounds”.

Since the state SVT in TV texts, on the web, and in news broadcasts consistently refers to “knife wounds” when they report on the murders in Morocco, many private persons have chosen to post the bloody video that shows that the same work was beheadings. Now public service channels are putting a stop to videos that show what really happened, via a feature in SVT Rapport.

“A video that is said to show the murders has been spread on social media. But those who spread the film in Sweden may be guilty of a crime”. That is what the former prosecutor Sven-Erik Alhem told a TV anchor in SVT Rapport.

On the TV screen even in the text, “dissemination is illegal” appears. Further, Rapport shows a feature from Morocco where reporter Diamant Salihu repeats the minimization of what actually happened.

“The girls had knife wounds on their necks,” he says in the feature.

Those who want to show that SVT is wrong in their claim of “knife wounds to the neck”, and thereby spread videos that show what really happened, may risk several years in jail.

“If the crime is aggravated, it carries up to four years in jail and a minimum of six months,” says Sven-Erik Alhem in the feature.

In social media, several users say that the video is being spread just because the Swedish media, in particular the public service, consistently refuse to state that both women had their heads cut from their bodies. Nyheter Idag (News Today) reached out to SVT on Tuesday, but without results.

Swedish Court Sentences Culture-Enriching Child-Rapist to Six Years in Prison

A rambunctious “youth” named Mohammed was sentenced to six years in prison by a Swedish court for raping a 9-year-old girl. That’s a harsh sentence by Swedish standards, but at least the mischievous youngster will not be permanently deported when he gets out.

I hardly need to point out that this case has a Mohammed Coefficient of at least 100% (it could be higher if his last name is also Mohammed or Mehmet or Mahmoud, but Swedish news reports don’t give the surname of the perp).

Mohammed sentenced for brutal rape of a 9-year-old girl — but avoids lifetime deportation

The immigrant was in search of a girl or child to rape

December 28, 2018

The 30-year-old Libyan who was charged for a brutal rape of a 9-year-old girl earlier this year in Malmö was sentenced today by the court for aggravated rape of a child. The penalty is six years in prison and deportation, but not for his entire life; instead after 15 years the pedophile rapist is welcome back.

It was at the end of October that the 9-year-old girl was subjected to an aggravated rape in a courtyard in Malmö. At the beginning of December, a 30-year-old Libyan was charged with the crime.

This is what the prosecutor wrote in the lawsuit:

He lured the victim into a trash room, which he locked, wrestled her to the floor, struck her in the face with an open hand, took off her (lower body) clothes and held her legs. He put a stranglehold on her neck, which caused her pain, created a bruise on her throat and made it hard for her to breathe. He further threatened to hit her if she didn’t stop screaming. Today the man, who in other media is called the “little girl papa” was sentenced for the crime. He has admitted the deed.

According to the court, it is clear that the man was in the area that day “to look for a girl to rape, that he didn’t care if the girl was a child, that he wanted have vaginal intercourse with her, and that, during the attack, he told her to open her legs,” which is contained in the judgment.

From the Migration Board’s opinion, the man, who is a citizen of Libya, has been in the country (Sweden) with permanent resident status since November 2010. He has three minor children in Sweden, and on many previous occasions has been convicted of crimes of violence and theft, but without being deported.

Sweden: See Nothing, Say Nothing

Swedish state TV is not only hiding and/or obfuscating the news about the beheading of two young Scandinavian women in Morocco, but it is also threatening its viewers with prosecution if they should happen to share the video of the crime on social media.

It may well be that posting the beheading video would not in fact be covered by the mentioned statute, and that no prosecution for it would ever get to court. But, knowing the compliant Swedish character, the media are counting on their audience to keep their heads down and say nothing.

Ingrid Carlqvist talks about the Orwellian world of Swedish TV in the following video. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for conducting this interview:

Suspected Islamic State Terrorists Arraigned in Sweden

Six “Swedes” of Uzbek and Kyrgyz background are being charged with terrorism-related crimes by the prosecutor in Solna, a suburb of Stockholm.

Islamic State Uzbeks accused of planned terrorist attack: Had hundreds of kilos of chemicals, bayonets, gas masks, combat harnesses

December 27, 2018

Six Uzbeks with links to the Islamic State (IS) are being accused today of various terror-related crimes. At least one of the accused men is believed to have had had contact with Rakhmat Akilov. Three of them, according to the prosecution, planned a major terrorist attack on Swedish soil.

“If the terrorist crime had been carried out, it could have seriously harmed Sweden,” writes the Prosecutor’s Office.

Six people are charged today at Solna District Court for preparation for terrorist offenses and violations of the Financing Act.

It concerns the people who were arrested in Strömsund and the Stockholm area earlier this year on suspicion of terrorist offenses.

The indictment for three of the accused refers to preparation for terrorist offenses consisting of suspicions that the three persons acquired and stored large quantities of chemicals and other equipment in order to, among other things, “kill and harm other people.”

During house searches around 800 kilos of very dangerous chemicals had been seized. The police also found two combat harnesses, four communication radios with headsets and other accessories, a backpack, a gas mask, a gas mask bag, a gas mask filter, a holster, a pair of knee pads, two bayonets and two pairs of combat gloves.

“The objects in the previous paragraph would have been particularly suitable for use as an aid to the crime. The purpose of the handling has been to deprive the another of life through murder, gross abuse, gross damage and general hazardous destruction, adding other serious bodily injuries and causing danger to the lives or health of others and extensive destruction of the property of others,” it says in the lawsuit.

The chemicals found are believed to be 560 kilos of calcium hypochlorite, five liters of hydrogen peroxide, 100 kilos of potassium hydroxide and about 100 liters of 96 per cent sulfuric acid.

A Society of Pleasure, or of Happiness?

During the holiday interlude, our old friend Henrik Clausen sends his thoughts on the distinction between pleasure and happiness.

A Society of Pleasure, or of Happiness?

by Henrik Clausen

One of the puzzling aspects of having Islam come to the West is the attraction it has, despite all its obvious weaknesses, and the complementary weak responses when Islamic communities conspire against their host societies on crucial matters. Things such as circumventing secular law, leeching off social services, using Sharia courts, the forced prostitution of minors, and of course terrorism.

Let me argue that part of the reason for this is the collapse of traditional communities in the West, beginning with the traditional family, and the shift from the pursuit of happiness to the pursuit of pleasure.

There’s no easy political fix for this. No further laws and regulations will help. Sorry ’bout that.

The Islamic community offers just that — a community. And that is intrinsically attractive. It competes, on a human level, with the starved-out communities we used to have a century ago.

I am old enough to have grown up in the ’70s, when neighbourhood communities and school communities were still alive, and somewhat well. Today neighbourhoods tend to be just where you happen to live. The words ‘rich’ and ‘poor’, when applied to a neighbourhood, now don’t say anything meaningful about the community there, merely about average income and car size.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. First, we need to understand just a little about the differences between pleasure and happiness. As outlined by Dr. Robert Lustig, of the University of California:

    Pleasure       Happiness
1.   Short lived   1.   Long lived
2.   Visceral   2.   Ethereal
3.   Taking   3.   Giving
4.   Experienced alone   4.   Experienced with others
5.   Achievable with substances   5.   Not achievable with substances
6.   Extremes lead to addiction   6.   Can’t be addicted to happiness
7.   Dopamine   7.   Serotonin

There you have it. There’s even a neurotransmitter distinction, Dopamine vs. Serotonin. Most people have probably heard of Dopamine, which is at the heart of severe drug addiction. Few have heard of Serotonin, which cannot lead to addiction, and cannot cause overdoses. Too much pleasure? Rock stars and many others have experienced that for ages, at times with deadly outcomes. Too much happiness? There can never be such a thing!

Off With Their Heads!

I first became aware of the Muslim fad for beheading infidels when Daniel Pearl was executed in Pakistan back in 2002. Over the years I saw a few more beheading videos, especially after the practice really began trending during the heyday of the Islamic State in 2014. I hated watching them, but it seemed a sort of duty, to be aware of what Islam is based on what it does. Eventually I realized that I’d had enough, and I quit watching them. I’ve seen what a beheading looks like now, many times over. I’m old, and my limbic system can’t take that much horror anymore.

Videos of beheadings and other gruesome types of execution constitute a form of Islamic porn. Devout Muslims get off on that sort of thing the same way a voyeur gets off on peeking through a lady’s bedroom window.

Muslims aren’t the only ones who like beheadings, of course. People with a taste for sadistic violence — most of them probably psychopaths — are drawn to such videos. I wouldn’t be surprised if jihad porn were the stimulus behind a lot of Western conversions to Islam. Just think — I’ll get to do all that cool stuff, and God approves of it!

The German news report below discusses the most recent Islamic beheading to gain notoriety: the slaughter of two young Scandinavian women in Morocco.

NOTE: The Moroccan government spokesman’s words might be more accurately rephrased: “We frown upon the murder of infidels on Moroccan soil, because it interferes with the tourist industry, which is how we extract money from the infidel. Mujahideen are required travel abroad if they wish to kill infidels.”

Merry Christmas to All You Danish WAYCISTS!

The video below shows Danish members of parliament behaving in a VERY politically incorrect manner in the Danish Parliament (Folketinget) itself.

Tania Groth, who translated the introduction to this clip (the song lyrics had been previously translated) sends this explanation for what happens in the video:

Today I saw a positive post on Facebook.

Recently there has been a big brouhaha about a traditional Danish song, because a female teacher of different ethnicity at the Danish Business School was offended by a line in the song (the first line) being sung at a school gathering. The title of the old song is “The Danish Song is a Young Blond Girl” — a classic, beautiful and very Danish song that sings about the beauty and soul of Denmark and the Danes.

Anyway, the University promptly apologized and said they wouldn’t be singing the song again — plus they thanked her for her vigilance on behalf of PC culture. The good thing about all this is that it REALLY caused a stir among people on both sides of the political spectrum. The majority of Danes were outraged that she, who has been welcomed here, should presume to change one of our most beautiful and iconic songs.

In other words the Danes proclaimed: THAT was enough PC nonsense, and were united. So, as a result of this, they sang this song in Parliament as a protest against the lunacy! A nice touch.

Here is the video on Facebook.

Enrichment, Rape, and Official Neglect in Sweden

Q:   When do you think that the Swedes will have had enough?
A:   I really feel that people have had enough. The problem is that people won’t say it loud enough.

The following video was produced by the Swedish dissident news service Nya Tider (New Times). Long-time readers will remember Ted Ekeroth (who conducted the telephone interviews in this report) from several past Counterjihad conferences in Europe.

The report concerns a woman who was sexually assaulted by a culture-enricher next to an asylum center in the Swedish village of Deje. If she had not fought back and escaped from her attacker’s grasp, she almost certainly would have been raped.

The travesty of this story is not so much the attack itself, but the official response to it. The police were pointedly indifferent to her plight, and never conducted any meaningful investigation. The media suppressed her description of the assailant as an Afghan. And the administrator of her local Facebook group deleted her post containing a description of the attacker and photos of her injuries.

Denmark Creates Its Own Gitmo

This post is really just an excuse to celebrate the Danes. It’s one country Shakespeare got wrong:

This isn’t breaking news, but it’s a welcome account nonetheless.

For many years Denmark has been voted the happiest country. It’s probably true and this direct approach to problems is a good example of their in-born cheerfulness. [No, Søren Kierkegaard doesn’t count.]

Besides being a handsome bunch, the Danish have a delightful sense of humor. Not to mention their cigarettes, beer, 1,000 kinds of real licorice, and countless candles in the cold shivering dark of winter. Danes exemplify the maxim about lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness, though they probably do both.

Remember that video clip collection made of Obama’s clichéd encomia about small countries? BHO said of each nation in turn, as they appeared at state visits to the White House, that they all “punched above their weight”. The Danish creator of that video kept a straight face, making Obama look even more vacuous than usual.

Now that Denmark is sending its law-breaking “refugees” to an island off Copenhagen, they can join us in having their very own Gitmo. So congratulations, Denmark! But admit it: if you didn’t have that handy escape valve of the bridge leading to Sweden, the island would become over-crowded right quick.

Nonetheless, three cheers for the Danes! When I die, I’m coming back as a Dane.

Three Africans in custody for gang rape in Björn’s Garden [a park in Stockholm]

November 12, 2018

There are two Somalis and an Eritrean man now in custody for the rape of a woman in Björn’s garden in Stockholm on Friday. They are also detained for robbery.

It was at midnight between Friday and Saturday that a woman contacted police and told them that she had been raped in Björn’s Garden at Medborgarplatsen in Söder, Stockholm.

The event is classified as aggravated rape, and the victim is a 20-year-old woman.

Immediately after the incident, however, the police were able to arrest three perpetrators who are now in custody.

This concerns three African men who are 18, 20 and 29, respectively. They were detained on Sunday on probable cause, suspected of aggravated rape and robbery.

According to information obtained by Fria Tider, one of them needs an Arabic interpreter and another for Somali.

Two of the men are citizens of Somalia and the third of Eritrea. It therefore concerns newly-arrived immigrants.

The district court’s document indicates that the rape occurred during the space of half an hour between 11:15pm and 11:45pm on Friday. The robbery had to have taken place at the same time, and in the same place as the rape.

All were arrested at 12:13am on Saturday, minutes after the rape occurred. The prisoners are in custody at Södermalm.

The men deny committing crimes.
