Malmo, this once safe and quiet city, is now overrun with gang violence. The culture of fear is so palpable that parents are no longer comfortable sending their children out to play. And not for lack of trying by politicians and the media, it can no longer be denied that the bulk of this violence and sexual attacks is coming from one community – the MUSLIM migrant community. Not surprisingly, we are no longer seeing a lot of “Refugees Welcome” signs in Sweden.
Gatestone Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city, houses over 300,000 people, as of 2017. Despite its modest size, the town has a crime rate equal to that of vastly larger cities. The local police are barely able to investigate murders. Less serious crimes often go unpunished. Malmö probably has the highest percentage of Muslim migrants of any city in Scandinavia. The most Islamic city in Scandinavia also happens to be the most criminal and the most violent.
Malmö’s chief prosecutor Ola Sjöstrand publicly admitted that his office was approaching a total collapse in terms of criminal investigations.
During New Year’s Eve celebrations at the beginning of 2017, parts of central Malmö resembled a war zone. Young Muslim migrants shouted “Jihad!” while throwing fireworks at people. Swedish teenagers gathered in a large group to avoid being robbed.
Meanwhile, officials at a local electrical firm announced that they would no longer expose their staff to risk by taking jobs in Malmö; there is just too much violent crime in the city.
Beginning in March 2017, the emergency ward at the hospital in Malmö will lock the doors at night. This is a security precaution that became necessary due to repeated violent threats from certain gangs or clans against patients and staff.
Yet in February 2017, the local police chief Erik Åkerlund in Botkyrka near Stockholm denied that “no-go zones” exist in Sweden.
As Soeren Kern writes at Gatestone Institute:
“The problem of no-go zones is well documented, but multiculturalists and their politically correct supporters vehemently deny that they exist. Some are now engaged in a concerted campaign to discredit and even silence those who draw attention to the issue.”
In January 2015 The New York Times denied that there are “no-go-zones” — areas that are not under the control of the state and are ruled according to sharia law — dominated by Muslim immigrant groups in some urban areas in Western Europe.
EVEN Fox News was forced to issue a series of unusual on-air apologies for allowing its anchors and guests to repeat the suggestion that there are Muslim “no-go zones” in European countries such as Britain and France.
Regarding the subject of “no-go-zones,” this is largely a question of semantics. If you say that there are some areas where even the police are afraid to go, where the country’s normal, secular laws barely apply, then it is indisputable that such areas now exist in several Western European countries. Sweden is among the hardest hit: with large populations of Arab and African Muslim immigrants.
If present demographic trends continue, in a few decades native Swedes could easily become a minority in their own country. The economist Tino Sanandaji suggests that this transformation could happen within the coming generation.
Statistics from January 2017 indicate that for people born in Sweden, the unemployment rate is 4.3%. Yet for people born abroad, the unemployment rate is a staggering five times higher, at 22.1%. This constitutes a huge economic and social burden for the taxpayers. The famous Swedish welfare state has been quietly cut back for many years.
Unfortunately, the “multicultural” problems in Sweden have grown so large and visible that some international media now regularly write about them. Swedish authorities apparently find this hugely embarrassing. They try to conceal this unpleasant reality as much as possible.
In Malmö, violent crime is no longer limited to districts such as Rosengård. Gang-related shootings happen in different parts of Malmö, and in other cities such as Gothenburg. A survey from 2016 indicated that nearly half of all Swedish women are afraid to go outside after dark, after police have advised them not to.
In early 2017, the Swedish police were instructed to increase their preparations for war. They were not told who this potential war would be against, although the authorities like to talk about an alleged threat of an invasion from Russia. It is not, however, the Russians who now routinely burn cars and commit gang-rapes in Swedish cities. These crimes are largely committed by recent Muslim migrants.
These migrants have for decades been allowed in by the ruling political elites, applauded by the mass media and supported by the EU and the UN. Most dangerous, however, is our inability to deal forcefully with problems that are undermining Western societies, because some Western media refuse to admit that the problems exist.
