Bill Muehlenberg's commentary on issues of the day...

Islam, Immigration, and the Death of Sweden

Dec 3, 2017

When a nation that used to value freedom, democracy, and the rule of law is willing to throw all that away because of the mistaken notion that it must effectively open its borders to anyone and everyone, and embrace misguided multi culti policies to the max, that nation is headed to oblivion real fast.

And we have a perfect example of this happening right now in Europe in general and Sweden in particular. The horror stories coming out of this country on a regular basis are just so utterly shocking. Yet it seems to prefer keeping its head in the sand as it self-destructs.

Let me offer just a handful of recent stories which should make your blood boil. Most deal with the massive problem of rape and assaults on women by the new immigrants – mostly Muslims. The first one concerns how so much of Sweden is becoming a no-go zone.

The headline reads, “Sweden: Fire brigade now need SWAT team to enter migrant suburbs.” It begins:

After a fire alarm went off in a garage with fifty cars in Uppsala, the fire brigade was nowhere to be seen. According to a witness, people in the suburb of Gottsunda had to wait (for almost) an hour before the emergency services arrived. At 9:34 pm the emergency services arrived much too late at the place. Lisa Sannervik, a police spokeswoman, said “the delay was because of safety measures”. Earlier there were attacks on responding teams and helmet and weapon reinforcements were needed to safely escort the fire brigade in the suburb.

And it is now becoming high risk for females to even go jogging:

Residents of the Swedish city of Oskarshamn will now have the option to be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging. Oskarshamn police inspector Peter Karlsson said the programme was designed to ease the insecurities of those who wish to go jogging after dark….
Karlsson said that he had heard of many residents feeling insecure in the city: “It does not happen so much here, but people are influenced by events around the world and feel unsafe when it’s dark.” The police inspector’s comments mirror a report from 2016 which stated that close to half of women in Sweden felt “very unsafe” at night alone in Swedish cities. According to the report, conducted by newspaper Aftonbladet, a further 43 per cent felt uncomfortable in Swedish cities even in the daytime.
The issue is particularly bad in troubled heavily migrant-populated suburbs which are often labelled no-go zones. A survey conducted by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) claimed that around half of the residents of problem areas were too afraid to leave their homes in the evenings.

My next headline is a real shocker: “Sweden: Nobody helped woman raped by 20 Muslim migrants — neighbors have “learned not to see or hear too much.” The story starts this way:

“Eeew, you have sperm on your face and on your clothes, don’t involve us,” they said to the woman. She had just endured a gang rape and abuse by up to twenty perpetrators in a stairwell in Fittja, but nobody in the southern Stockholm suburb wanted to help the victim, Metro reports.
More details are now being published about the high profile case in Fittja, which took place in a stairwell in August 2016. The woman was gang-raped and also beaten up by up to twenty perpetrators. The woman was kicked, beaten, threatened with a knife and her head was knocked against the floor until she went unconscious. A neighbor who witnessed the brutal attack chose to ignore it. He later stated to the police that he has “learned not to see or hear too much.” The man has lived for 15 years in Fittja, a Muslim-dominated area.

So how is Sweden dealing with the rape crisis? Check this out:

As Islamic migrants continue to perpetuate Sweden’s ongoing rape crisis, the country where the infamous phrase “Stockholm Syndrome” originated from has developed an ingenious solution that is sure to curtail the problem: a guidebook explaining that rape is wrong.
That will do the trick! Released on Monday by the Swedish Ministry of Youth and Civil Affairs (MYCA), the new guidebook, titled Youmo In Practice, will discuss the nature of sexual consent and provide adults methods on discussing such issues with recently-arrived immigrants.
Lena Nyberg, MYCA director, said of the book, “We have seen a great need for young people to get more knowledge and a great need among the adults to get help and support in how to talk about these issues.”
Nyberg acknowledged that migrants from the Middle East do not operate according to Western values and will be made aware of them.

Worse yet, the government is going after those who dare to report on such matters:

The Swedish government is now officially questioning free speech. A government agency has declared so-called Swedish “new media” — news outlets that refuse to subscribe to the politically correct orthodoxies of the mainstream media — a possible threat to democracy. In a government report, tellingly called “The White Hatred” written by Totalförsvarets forskningsinstitut (Total Defense Research Institute), a government agency under the Swedish Ministry of Defense, Swedish new media such as Samhällsnytt (formerly known as Avpixlat), Nyheter Idag and Nya Tider are lumped together with neo-Nazi media such as Nordfront.
“Hate” is defined broadly to include violent extremism, “hateful expressions”, jokes, internet trolling and even the use of certain quotation marks. For instance, in the report, placing the word “refugees” in quotation marks, as well as “unaccompanied children,” is supposedly an expression of “hate”. (Many, if not most, migrants classified as “unaccompanied children” have turned out to be grown men).

Another article gives us the bigger picture here. The title and subtitle say it all: “The Death of the Most Generous Nation on Earth. Little Sweden has taken in far more refugees per capita than any country in Europe. But in doing so, it’s tearing itself apart.”

And here are some hard numbers to go with this:

Liberal Swedish society has been rocked by disturbing new statistics proving Sweden’s rape crisis is a result of the socialist government’s open door immigration policy. The notion of “foreigners committing crime” is not merely a slogan of the far-right, but is indisputable truth.
According to the latest reports from Sweden, 92% of all ‘severe rapes’ (violent rapes) are committed by those of a migratory/asylum background. 100% of ‘attack rapes’ (violent rapes in which the perpetrator is a stranger) are also committed by men of the same origin. Defend Europa reports: The top ten list of ethnic origins for these rapists is as follows; Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Syria, Gambia, Iran, Palestine, Chile and Kosovo.

But let me conclude with some quotes from a new book on Europe and its slow demise by Douglas Murray. In The Strange Death of Europe he too looks at the disaster that Sweden now is, thanks to its commitment to political correctness and its reckless policies on immigration and Islam.

His revealing discussion of the rape crisis there is worth sharing. He writes:

In the summer of 2014 the ‘We Are Stockholm’ music festival took place as normal. Except that at the event dozens of girls as young as 14 were surrounded by gangs of immigrants, particularly from Afghanistan, molested and raped. “Local police covered up the case, making no mention of it in their report on the five-day festival. There were no convictions and the press avoided any mention of the rapes. Similar organised rapes by migrant gangs occurred at music festivals in 2015 in Stockholm and Malmö among other cities. The figures were extraordinary. Whereas in 1975 there were 421 rapes reported to the Swedish police, by 2014 the annual number of rapes reported had risen to 6,620. By 2015 Sweden had the highest level of rapes per capita of any country in the world after Lesotho. When the Swedish press did report these events they wilfully misreported them. For instance, after the gang rape of a girl on a ferry from Stockholm to Abo, Finland, it was reported that the culprits were “Swedish men” when they were in fact Somalis.

He continues:

In October 2015, asylum centres in Munkedal, Lund and a dozen other places across the country were set alight by locals. The government moved to have all such locations kept secret in future. But the following January when a young female social worker was stabbed to death in an asylum shelter by a child migrant who turned out to be an adult, public opinion further soured. The issue of so-called ‘no-go zones’ became a major issue within the country, with officials furiously denying that there were areas of Sweden where the authorities could not enter even though local residents and emergency services who regularly came under assault in such areas knew this to be the case.
That August an eight-year-old boy from Birmingham, England, whose family were from Somalia, was killed in a gang-related grenade attack whilst visiting relatives in Gothenburg. As with a Gothenburg car bomb a year earlier, which had killed a three-year-old girl, ethnic gang violence of this kind had become routine. In 2016 it transpired that as much as 80 per cent of the Swedish police force were considering quitting because of the dangers that their jobs now entailed in dealing with the increasingly lawless, migrant-dominated areas of their country.

His book has plenty more on the disaster that Sweden has now become. His book is essential reading for all those concerned about runaway immigration policies, mindless multiculturalism, and the increasing dangers of Islam in the West.

It is rightly said that if we do not heed the lessons of history we will be doomed to repeat them. And if we do not wake up and learn from what is now happening overseas, we too will soon enough end up experiencing those disasters. How many more warnings from Europe and elsewhere are needed before we snap out of our slumber and seek a new direction?

26 Responses to Islam, Immigration, and the Death of Sweden

  • Bill I’ve talked with both a Swedish person and an English person. Both claim that people are waking up to this but the problem is that they don’t have a Trump or anti Islam person in power. The Swedish person said that most people under 25 know Islam is a problem and vote accordingly, the Swedish democrats wants to deport the Migrants back. The English person said that recently the U.K had an anti Islam march that had 25,000 people in London (Will see if I can find the video). Also Tommy Robinson’s book about the Koran and why muslims kill went to the top of amazon UK’s best seller. Since we’re Christians, I’ll try to trust the both of them and pray that Europe can fight back from this, unfortunately I fear that things will get bloody there before anything gets better.

  • Bill, Sweden is the country that charges men who try to purchase prostitutes.
    But it would seem, rape is Ok as they don’t pay for it.
    I read the other day that Christmas lights are now not allowed in Sweden as it could / would upset the Muslims.
    The Mayor of Venice has had them and has stated that if anyone sings out those two famous works AA then they will be shot dead, no questions asked. Interesting times. Yet many of our politicians and citizens can’t see past their nose on this issue. Thank you once again for such clear thinking on this subject.

  • Bill, this is very sad, what has happened to Sweden. I hope and pray that they can find their way back. I pray also that Australia will never find herself in this position. Thank you for this well researched article.

  • Bill, I must call you out on this.
    The title of your item starts with the word “Islam” and then the article describes a number of horrific incidents which have nothing to do with Islam. Just because someone may be called Mohammed or Abdullah and originate from a so-called Muslim country, doesn’t mean that his behaviour has anything to do with Islam. Of course you are a smart guy and you must be aware of this fact, so why are you propagating such hatred against Islam. Unfortunately Muslims make the same mistake when they condemn Christianity for the actions of bad people from so-called Christian countries. So please don’t fall into the same trap and be a cause of hate crimes against innocent Muslims. May God forgive you.
    I don’t really expect you to publish my comments, but please take note as I respect you for your usual objective of standing up for the truth, whereas sadly this item fall far short of that high standard.

  • Thanks Arnold. Of course as a Muslim you prefer to put your own spin on this, and live in denial about what is happening here. I get that. But when a Muslim acts according to his Islamic beliefs, then yes, it DOES have something to do with Islam! Moreover, the facts and figures speak for themselves. There is heaps more such documentation that can be offered here, and not just what I have offered in this article. The evidence is quite clear: things like rape and sexual assault and other crimes in Sweden and Europe have skyrocketed in recent times, and the figures prove that overwhelmingly this is due to immigrants from mainly Muslim countries. Not all Muslims are rapists, and not all rapes in Europe are done by Muslims, but a good majority of late are, sadly. That is simply empirically verifiable truth that no amount of wishful thinking can make go away. And of course Islam fully supports this, as found in the Koran, sira and hadith. But I have often written about this in particular, and how poorly women are treated in Islam in general. See here for example:

    billmuehlenberg.com/2016/01/11/islam-and-rape-jihad/

    www.billmuehlenberg.com/2006/11/02/islam-and-women/

    www.billmuehlenberg.com/2008/02/22/islam-and-women-2/

    www.billmuehlenberg.com/2012/11/24/women-and-islam/

    And of course we can easily refute your false moral equivalence here. When a Muslim kills or rapes an infidel in the name of Islam, he does it with the full backing of the life, teaching and example of Muhammad, as found in the Koran, the hadith and the sira. If a Christian kills or rapes in the name of Christ, he has NO backing from the life and teaching of Jesus or the New Testament. The two could not be more different here. I lay this our more fully in various places, eg:

    www.billmuehlenberg.com/2008/11/21/jesus-muhammad-and-violence/

    www.billmuehlenberg.com/2010/09/13/violence-in-the-bible-and-the-koran/

    If you are really interested in truth, facts and objective evidence, I suggest you give the New Testament a read to see how incredibly different it is to what is found in Islam.

  • As usual, women are the first ones to pay for PC stupidity.
    They pay for transgender-stupidity by losing sports to fem men.
    They pay for multicultural-stupidity by losing their own safety in public.
    They pay for abortion-stupidity by losing their right to live when parents want sons.
    They pay for gender-stupidity by allowing men to use their public toilets.
    They pay for Islamaphobia-stupidity by condoning Mohammadian abuse of women.
    The list goes on…
    There is obviously a pattern here. One would think it is time women protested against all this oppression. After all, it is a whole lot worse than wearing a bra.

  • Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.

  • Re James Tirrito’s comment that “The Swedish person said that most people under 25 know Islam is a problem”: That does not surprise me, in light of some of the accounts I’ve been told of the goings-on in our larger capital cities. E.g., I’ve heard first-hand of the experience of a male teenager of Anglo-Aussie heritage waiting at a bus stop. Car of male youths “of Middle-Eastern appearance” notices said teenager, does a U-turn and pulls up at the bus stop and three jump out of the car, with evident hostile intent. Thankfully the Anglo-Aussie immediately sizes up the danger and, being athletic and not too far from the home of a friend, manages to escape to safety as the youths shout out “We’ll get you next time, Skip!” (or ‘Skippy’—their euphemism for Anglo-Aussies of their age group). Note, they’re not interested in targeting the over 45s, for they recognize that generation still holds the cords of power. (Which might perhaps be why our parliamentarians can’t seem to understand public alarm?) But for the past 15-20 years the battle frontline in the maternity wards has increasingly been in their favour. So if this latest Australian-born generation so chooses to have the same ‘Holy Book’ as their immigrant parents, they can find instructions like this one to justify their intimidation of ‘Skippies’:

    Fight those who do not believe in Allah … until they pay the Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued. (Surah 9:29)

  • Whenever you write about these circumstances in Europe specifically Sweden, anyone reading your pieces Bill would believe that it is widely talked about and the whole of Europe would be up in arm about these happenings. Yet whenever you being it up with any of those that live there, especially in places like the Netherlands, they make out that you are spreading fake news. They simply won’t have it that such things actually are taking place. Its just like Nazi Germany in the late 1930s, no one wants to know. You even get reprimanded for daring to raise such issues of untruth.
    Honestly you have no idea how hopelessly defensive and irate people become if you dare to talk about such things. They are in complete denial that there is anything wrong with their utopian society. Your made out to be stirring the pot and inciting vicious stories. Well anyway, that is what I encountered during my last visit to Holland in May.

  • I have friends in Sweden with children; we hope to hear from them during Christmas. So far they have said they are safe and ok, but they are appalled at the way the country is deteriorating. The Swedish government is a basket case, they desperately need to be removed before Sweden has any chance of recovery. One only has to look at most of Europe’s leaders to see that they are all driving the continent to oblivion; May, Macron, Merkel….none of them have children….none of them have any investment in the continent’s future.

  • Men of Wahhabi/Taliban/Al-Shabab Muslim persuasion are highly likely to regard much fashionable sports attire and other fashionable everyday attire worn by European women as flagrant violations of Prophet Muhammad’s dress code for pious women. Certain of the alleged rapists referred to above would, in all probability, feel it their honour-bound duty to kill any of their own female relatives who dress as European women commonly do.

    Is there anything in the legal case histories of asylum-seeker/immigrant perpetrated rapes to indicate how many of the informers have become regular consumers of cyber-porn? The cognitive dissonance between an addiction to on-line erotica, and traditional notions of a mediaeval patriarchy, whose aim is to protect and control the sexuality of female members of the extended family from exploitation by strange men, can only serve to exacerbate the inherent dangers in the collision of ultra-conservative Islamic culture and ultra-liberal Post-Modern European culture.

  • But whilst Sweden allows itself to be bombed, shot at and raped from the outside, within, it is destroying the family by tearing children away from parents who will not conform to Sweden’s essentially Neo -Marxist, humanist, illiberal ideology whereby the state owns the children and parents merely act as minders.

    Sweden can no longer pretend that it is the great socialist utopia.

    American theologian, John Mcarthur said, that after abortion, “ The second great act of terror perpetrated by the Supreme Court was the legalization of same-sex marriage. The destruction of human life in the womb—in a sense, the destruction of motherhood—and now the destruction of the family itself. No bomb, no explosion, no attack, and no assault on people physically can come anywhere near that kind of terrorism. Our country is being terrorised by the people most responsible to protect it—those who are to uphold the law”.

    Sir James Munby, president of the Family Division of the UK High Court, said that in the absence of the death penalty, removing a child from their parents is one of the most “drastic” actions a judge can take, consequences that can last a lifetime.

    If countries, like Sweden and Britain continue along this trajectory, inevitably, families will have no option but take up arms to protect their families from their own governments. Either that or they will be destroyed.

  • Sweden is a direct result of Feminism. No wonder why so many people call it cancer.

    We’re in a war with Islam and yet no one is fighting it. We should be fighting with all our might, but the fundamental Marxists are deliberately destroying society. It’s a result of forgetting the God who made us. But after the horrors of Bataclan, Europe has not spiritual will to win this spiritual battle.

  • Ah, you forget that diversity makes us stronger. My Prime Minister ( Justin Trudeau ) told us so, so it must be true. I’d like to hear the response of the father who crossed the finish line at the Boston Marathon. His 3 family members were there to see dad at the end. The bomb left his wife brain-damaged, his 7-year old daughter lost a leg and her 8-year old brother was killed. The 2 perpetrators were 2 young Chechnya Muslims rescued, brought to America and were university-educated ( with grants provided by the American taxpayers ). Don’tcha just love diversity?

  • And yet, of course, Malcolm Turnbull continues to do nothing about the same media bias in Australia even though he had years as Communications Minister and now as Prime Minister with every opportunity to do so.

    There is a spiritual connection between left wing, atheist ideas, such as we continually see on the ABC and SBS, and Islam and one of those spiritual connection is sexual deviancy, of all sorts. You only have to watch these stations for a short time in the evenings, and often at other times as they attempt to indoctrinate children, to see that very obvious spiritual connection. They will repeatedly hammer one perspective of the news, if it suits their purpose, but the other perspective may as well not even remotely exist. This is exactly how you create the image of the Beast that people worship.

    In Revelation 17 we see the great Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth who sits on many waters (peoples – Rev 17:1&15) and rides (or has ridden) on the seven heads (kingdoms/mountains) of the Beast (Rev 17:9). She may be arrayed in “purple and scarlet” and be gilded with gold and pearls and precious stones but we see in Rev 17:16:-

    Rev 17:16 and the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked. And they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
    (MKJV)

    Are people yet able to see how these sorts of events are a fulfillment of this prophecy? God wants equality for women, because the scriptures are clear that there is equality in heaven (Gal 3:28, Mar 12:25) , but the promotion of sexual deviancy and false religions and false political beliefs and false equality is never going to give any woman equality. While on Earth we have been created with certain differences for a good, practical reason and the best thing is to embrace those differences and use them correctly and effectively to the best of our ability because these create the synergy between men and women that gives us the best outcome and best return on our investment. This is one of the many truths that Christianity teaches. Atheistic ideas will only ever give people a false hope that wrong behaviors can somehow overcome fundamental truths and realities. Things are very complex because we are astoundingly complex but they have been created a certain way for very good reasons.

    Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
    Rev 16:14 For they are spirits of demons, working miracles, which go forth to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that day, the great day of God Almighty.
    (MKJV)

    I wonder how many Christians are able to open their minds to spiritual truths and perspectives and see this.

  • Fascism is national socialism; Communism is international socialism: Socialism is Marxism – the devil is behind it all; It is well and truly time for the Swedish people to rise up and demand immigrants be deported – they should be held to account and forfeit all rights given to them because of their wicked behavior.
    When just a few brave SWEDISH people start speaking the TRUTH, the tide will change.

  • I recommend Michael Youssef’s book ‘The Barbarians are Here.’ I’m reading it at the moment. Very timely.

  • This is sobering reading.

    Is it right to feel that in Australia, our culture is suffering in the name of tolerance and acceptance?

    Before I am accused of intolerance, I recall the Bible passages that admonished Israel to show kindness and hospitality to foreigners living among them.

    What is happening in Sweden should serve as a warning to us. Look at the growing problem with car jackings, and aggravated burglaries. It seems that there are people who come here to live, but have no intent of respecting our laws.

  • FYI, Bill. I posted a link to your article here to a friend on FB and he returned a Snopes article which basically rejects most of your argument.

  • Thanks Russell. But I trust you replied to your buddy with these basic truths:

    -Why believe Snopes? It is nothing more than a leftist couple who have been caught out far too often pushing radical agendas. See here eg., accuracyinpolitics.blogspot.com.au/2013/05/snopes-got-snoped.html

    -Where in my article did I say anything about Sweden being the rape capital of Europe? So this is a red herring.

    -Try telling all the women and girls in Sweden who were raped and sexually assaulted that this is no big deal and just a beat-up.

  • One of my ancestors came from Sweden & I feel sad for what is happening there with the moslems. History shows they cause trouble where ever they go. On tv lately they’ve been showing a documentary on the Vikings in the 1000 AD era; give & take several 100 yrs. On how they went to England & some European countries attacking them & taking them over for a time. To me what is happening in Sweden; is their time to be ‘attacked & maybe conquered for a time’. But, I pray, please Lord God don’t let this happen! I don’t wont any moslem refugees into our country. Don’t let an enemy in. God got the Israelites to fight against their enemies who worshiped false gods.

  • This is what liberalism and political correctness gets you. Pathetic. Pure cowardice, what a shame, the men of Sweden and I use that term loosely, are worthless, sniveling cowards. They have been feminized and should be ashamed of them selves. The women of Sweden are defensless against the filth they have let into their country. Sweden has had its problems but now it is destroying itself and will cease to exist. The high taxation in return for endless benefits, what has it gotten you Sweden, what? You elect political figures that state they will increase taxes. Let me tell you keeping your own money is always better than letting someone else waste it. So sad but you deserve what you have allowed to happen. Europe is not far behind.

  • I presume firearms are difficult to obtain in Sweden. If the citizens could make examples of a few of those animals, it might cause some of the others to stop and think about the possible consequences. Yet another reason that I’m glad we have the 2nd amendment. The government condemns vigilantism but I fail to see how it is illegal since our Declaration of Independence states that the government is established by the consent of the people and it is our right and our duty to withdraw that consent when the government fails to fulfill it’s obligations to us. I realize that Sweden operates under different rules but maybe it’s time for them to look at some options if things don’t change.

  • Swedish people are morons and the males are gelded cowards in lace undies. No one cares about anything including crime, sharia law being imposed and lawlessness. They deserve slavery and worse for being idiots.

  • Thanks guys. And this just in: “The Prime Minister of Sweden has vowed his country will ‘never go back’ to recent levels of mass immigration after it emerged the terrorist who killed four people in a truck attack was a failed asylum seeker.”
