Jihad Watch reader Ted has kindly sent along this English summary of this Swedish article about ongoing Muslim riots in the city of Malmö:
Rosengård, an area with a very high immigrant population, is yet again on the frontpage as the riots from Saturday continue. On Sunday, several storage facilities were set ablaze.
But the most disturbing thing was that a 17-year-old boy was brutally assaulted by a group of 6 "youths" (as the newspaper described them). They beat him so severely that he is now treated in intesive care in Lund Hospital.
The assault took place at 20:30, when two boys were on their way home from soccer practice. The gang concentrated on the 17-year-old; his friend got away to alert the police. When the police arrived at the scene, they found the boy lying on the ground with wounds to his head. According to the friend who got away, the attackers were unknown to them -- which indicates that this was a random, unprovoked act of violence.
The boy, in critical condition, is sedated and is on life support with a respirator.
The police have made no arrests and the motive is unknown.
Fjordman, the great Norwegian essayist, kindly sends in this background material:
Malmö is Sweden's third largest city and by far the worst city in Scandinavia when it comes to Muslim aggression. Here are some of my older posts about Malmö. Keep in mind when you read this that Swedes pay the highest tax rates of any (supposedly) free nation. I read recently that an Arab girl interviewed in Malmö said that she liked it so much there, it felt almost like an Arab city:
Two local Liberal Party politicians in Malmö have proposed a ban on
the use of languages other than Swedish in school classrooms. "This is
a local proposal. In Malmö we have a very unique situation: we are
close to the point where a majority of pupils have a foreign
background, which is to say that either they or their parents come
from a country outside Sweden." Widman explains that some schools in
Malmö have as few as 5 percent ethnic Swedes in their classrooms.
Malmö, Sweden's third largest city, has now taken another step towards its Islamization: Starting from the fall of 2005, the district of Hyllie will begin education in Arabic only for groups of immigrant preschool children.
A high school teacher in Malmö, Sweden, who discovered that about a dozen Arab students were laughing and shouting "Allahu Akbar!" while watching a DVD of infidel hostages being beheaded in Iraq. The headmaster didn't think the incident was such a big deal. At least 139 schools in Sweden suffered arson attacks during 2002 alone. Such as an incident in Malmö, where three schools were put on fire during one night. Björn Vinberg from the fire department in Kroksbäck in the Malmö area says it's humiliating and degrading to put out fires again and again in the same immigrant areas, with school kids laughing at them and lighting a new one just afterwards. His colleagues have been to the same place no less than twenty times, all totally unnecessary.
Another arson attack on the mosque in Malmö, just a month after the previous one. Will we see more retaliatory attacks, as Sweden's third largest city continues its spiral into religious clashes?
In Malmö, attackers vandalized graves in one of the city's churchyards. They only seemed to be interested in the crosses.
There was a doubling of the number of reported rapes in 2004, following what was already a decade of steadily increasing numbers of sexual crimes. - I think that's great news, says Anna Gustafsson, head of the Domestic Violence Unit at the Malmö Police. She suggests that the increase is due to the fact that women who otherwise wouldn't press charges for rape now choose to contact the police.
Few areas in Sweden are worse hit by the current troubles than Malmö, the nation's third largest city. According to some estimates, the
rapidly growing Muslim immigrant population may turn Malmö into a Muslim majority city within about ten years. Native Swedes are leaving the city in droves, as crime is rampant and the police publicly admit they don't control all parts of the city. There are now gangs in Malmö specialized in assaulting old people visiting the graves of relatives. Robberies have increased with 50 % in Malmö only during the fall of 2004.
The wave of robberies the city of Malmö has witnessed during this past year is part of a "war against the Swedes." This is the explanation given by young robbers from immigrant backgrounds when questioned about why they only rob native Swedes, in interviews with Petra Åkesson for her thesis in sociology.
Almost 90% of all robberies reported to the police were committed by gangs, not individuals. "When we are in the city and robbing we are waging a war, waging a war against the Swedes." This argument was repeated several times. "Power for me means that the Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet." The boys explain, laughingly, that "there is a thrilling sensation in your body when you're robbing, you feel satisfied and happy, it feels as if you've succeeded, it simply feels good." "It's so easy to rob Swedes, so easy." "We rob every single day, as often as we want to, whenever we want to. The Swedes don't do anything, they just give us the stuff. They're so wimpy." The young robbers do not plan their crimes: "No, we just see some Swedes that look rich or have nice mobile phones and then we rob them."
A man was attacked and nearly killed for the crime of wearing clothes with his own national flag while Sweden was participating in the World Cup. Sweden has the Christian cross in its flag, and apparently, some "Multicultural youths" found this to be an intolerable provocation. The 24-year-old man was run down by a car in the city of Malmö. He was wearing some clothes with Swedish national symbols on them, and this "provoked some emotions."
During the Jihad riots in France in the fall of 2005, Sweden's Social Democratic Prime Minister Göran Persson criticized the way the French government handled the unrest in the country. "It feels like a very hard and confrontational approach." Persson also rejected the idea of more local police as a "first step" in Sweden. "I don't believe that's the way we would choose in Sweden. To start sending out signals about strengthening the police is to break with the political line we have chosen to follow," he said. Meanwhile, as their authorities have largely abandoned their third largest city to creeping anarchy, there is open talk among the native Swedes still remaining in Malmö of forming vigilante groups, armed with baseball bats and concern for their children's safety.
