They keep exploding all over the country. Swedish police chief: No international equivalent to Sweden’s wave of bombings.
The bomb squad has been called in 100 bombings this year.
Regularly placed near the top of the UN’s Human Development Index and among the world’s richest countries in terms of GDP per capita, the Scandinavian country is facing an unusual challenge as bombings become a regular occurrence.
And it isn’t just bombings, though they do seem to attract a lot of attention.
Sweden’s main daily Dagens Nyheter also reported in October that deadly shootings of men aged 20 to 29 had increased by 200 percent between 2014 and 2018.
The illegal drug is blamed for most of the violence, and the proliferation of the gangs.
Sadly that has changed. Trend in gang crime bombings rock Sweden.
In the past week alone, a bomb exploded in a stairwell in a Malmo apartment building, an explosive device was found outside a shopping centre in the southern town of Kristianstad, and a blast rocked the balcony at a block of flats in Hassleholm in southern Sweden.
While few of the blasts have caused serious injuries, the national bomb squad has been called out to investigate 99 explosions in the first 10 months of the year.
Grenades were very popular in the past few years, but for whatever reason, the gangs seem to be switching to homemade devices.
Yes it is in German. Use Google translate. (or see the Breibart link below.) Islamist moralists terrorize Berlin (Original: Islamistische Moralwächter terrorisieren Berliner).
A group of Islamist thugs threatened and assaulted Chechens living in Berlin , especially women and their contacts, for alleged violations of their archaic morality . Some victims were said to have been seriously injured.
No comment from police. No comment from the Bundeskanzler (Angela Merkel) Hat tip to Breitbart.
In a related story, Swedish police had to walk-back comments that said Christian Extremism was just as much a problem in that country as Islamic extremism. The police take back claims of Christian extremism in vulnerable areas. And yes, this one is in Swedish. See my comment about Google translate.
In a radio interview, a police chief had the following to say (as translated).
The SR reporter then asked if it was also about Christians, Hindus and Buddhists.
– Yes exactly. Together with the security police, we see that different forms of recruitment, different forms of bringing young people towards extremist views are stronger in vulnerable areas than generally in society, Löfving replied.
But when a Christian publication asked for more details, they were told there is no Christian extremism to speak of.
The continuing decline of Sweden, and Western Europe…. UPS stops delivering packages to Swedish no-go zones after multiple attacks on drivers.
You won’t find this covered in any of the mainstream media outlets, because it doesn’t fit the narrative.
Multiple Swedish news outlets, including the newspapers Fria Tider and Sydsvenskan, have confirmed that UPS has stopped all deliveries to Rosengård, a Malmo neighborhood comprised almost entirely of Muslim residents, because of a heightened risk of their drivers being robbed or worse.
Fria Tider (Free Times) is listed by the Wiki as part of the Right Wing Conspiracy, but Sydsvenskan is a daily newspaper that has been around since since 1870. Google/Chrome does a fair job of translating the Swedish. Bing translate for some reason thinks the Rosengård neighborhood of Malmö is San Francisco.
There is a myth that Sweden is a socialist country. But the Truth is, having the government manage everything didn’t work well, so they cut government spending, implemented school vouchers, sold state-owned businesses, etc.
This is “Sweden: Lessons for America?” by Johan Norberg, who was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Sukhoi is the latest fighter designed by Russia. Sweden says it built a Russian fighter jet killer — and stealth is totally irrelevant.
Sweden’s air force says its Gripen E fighter jets are designed to kill Russia’s fearsome Sukhoi fighter jets, and that they have a “black belt” in that type of combat.
Interesting article for anyone interested in the current state of the arms balance between Western Europe and Russia. Though Sweden isn’t a member of NATO, for reasons I’m not sure anyone can articulate, they do train with member states.
“Several years ago the Gripen pilots got tired of being made fun of by German Typhoon pilots and came to play with their wartime electronic warfare and gave them a hell of a hard time,” Bronk said. One of the Gripens was “reportedly able to appear on the left wing of a Typhoon without being detected” by using its “extremely respected” jamming ability, Bronk said.
What they are trying to do is sell the jet on the export market. I wish them luck.
There’s never a cop around when you need one. (This is Sweden, so they are hiding under the bed, fearful of being labeled “racist”.) Father of Swedish terror victim attacked by migrant who vandalised her grave – Police do nothing.
Stefan writes that the man was sentenced to expulsion in 2014, but the decision was appealed to the Supreme Court. In 2015, he was sentenced again, for the grave violation, but avoided expulsion.
The trial for repeated violations of Ebba’s grave will be held in March next year. According to the father, the vandalisation continues “on average three nights a week”.
Sweden is toast. But they brought it on themselves. (Well, Angela Merkel helped.) Hat tip to Trigger Reset.
Because that plan worked so well in Venezuela. Panic Grips Swedish Establishment Facing an Election Beating.
The established parties are pulling out all the stops in an effort to maintain the status quo. The Moderates are promising tax cuts and the Social Democrats are offering families an extra week off work. Both want increased spending on healthcare and education. They also pledging to crack down on crime and further restrict immigration, allowing the Sweden Democrats to set the debate.
When political scientists at respected universities are saying politicians are using the word “panic,” I will say it is probably NOT media promoting click-bait.
“What’s wrong with Sweden?” is basically a question asked by the media. (Because they haven’t been paying attention, is my guess.)
But Sweden was the darling of the Left…. Immigration and welfare fears merge as Sweden lurches to the right.
Several online surveys indicate the anti-immigration, anti-European Union Sweden Democrats could become the largest party, overtaking the Social Democrats, who have dominated politics for the last 100 years.
Failure of recent immigrants to integrate is part of the problem. But there are other problems.
Some also feel that Sweden’s widely admired tax and welfare model has left them behind.
It is very expensive to do business in Sweden as a result of those “admired” systems. (Hat tip to Small Dead Animals.)
Because coed music festivals are not safe. Women cheer as Sweden’s man-free music festival kicks off.
Matilda Hagerman laughs with her friends as she queues at a man-free music festival, which kicked off in Sweden on Friday in protest against a wave of sexual assaults at festivals in recent years.
Think about that last part of the quote: “in recent yeas.” It’s almost like something changed in the past few years.
This seems like a victory for Sharia. Because the authorities don’t want to be xenophobic, they ignored attacks at first, then down-played them, but in the end did nothing concrete. And so spaces are now segregating for safety.
Knyckare told AFP that the MeToo wave exposing sexual assault unveiled “serious problems” in Sweden, one of the most gender equal nations in the world, at not only festivals but several institutions.
This is The Local. They are so far to the Left they can’t see the center anymore. So while they talk about “safe spaces” they don’t mention when those safe spaces became necessary, or any of the attacks from previous festivals – only in the abstract.
So is this progress, or a massive step backwards?
