For most of the 20th century, Sweden was held up as the very model of a modern welfare state: prosperous and peaceful, a example of social cohesion that was the product not of “diversity,” but of the very lack of “diversity.” That homogeneous Sweden is no longer. The description of quite a different Sweden, the result of more than 1.2 million immigrants, mostly from Muslim countries, can be found here: “Suicidal Sweden: Woman Gang-Raped in a Park by Five Teenage Syrian Muslim Migrants,” by Amy Mek, RAIR Foundation, December 26, 2022 (also, a Jihad Watch report on this incident, featuring a translation from a Swedish news source, is here).
Five teenage Syrian Muslim “migrants” have been charged on suspicion of gang-raping a young woman in a park in Malmö, Sweden. The brutal assault was interrupted by two police officers who happened to be patrolling the area. The victim’s attorney said her client experienced every woman’s worst nightmare.
It was around eleven o’clock in the evening on October 22, 2022, when a police patrol passed Kungsparken park in Malmö.
Police saw a group of young people near a casino located in the park. As the patrol officers approached, the gang dispersed. Only after the woman approached the police and told them she was gang raped did they realize they had interrupted a brutal attack.
Four Syrian migrants were arrested on the evening of the assault, while the fifth was taken into custody the day after. The suspected Islamic rapists are all young migrants; an 18-year-old, two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old, and a 15-year-old.
They all have been charged with aggravated rape of the woman, who is said to be a young woman in her 20s.
According to the indictment, the migrants pinned the woman down, raped her repeatedly, and severely abused her. During the rape, the accused men are suspected of jointly holding her down. Four of the five deny the crime, and the fifth admits the course of events but denies doing anything wrong.
Though only one of these Muslim assailants said he had done nothing wrong, the other four, who simply denied the crime, no doubt felt the same. After all, the Infidel woman, out alone at night, and dressed as Swedish women in their 20s now dress was, according to their Muslim moral code clearly “asking for it.” Why should they be punished for remaining true to their own traditions and understandings? It doesn’t seem fair.
The police have found the woman’s DNA on four of the perpetrators. Belongings from the woman have also been found on one of the boys, and there are images from surveillance cameras showing how they moved around the crime scene.
“My client has experienced a woman’s worst nightmare, being raped in a park by five guys. She has felt, and still feels, very bad from this,” said her lawyer Kristina Bandrup.
Sweden’s Mass Immigration
Sweden has, in just two generations, gone from being one of the safest countries in the world to one of the most dangerous countries in Europe. Meanwhile, mass immigration has dramatically altered Sweden’s population, reports Gatestone.
While Sweden’s population remained almost exclusively Swedish for most of the 20th century, the share of migrants and their descendants has quickly soared to about a third of a total population of roughly 10 million.
Sweden has one of the world’s worst recorded rape rates. In 2018, the state broadcaster SVT revealed that 58% of men convicted in Sweden of rape and attempted rape over the previous five years were born abroad. Some of the most brutal rape cases have involved Muslim or African immigrants.
The foreign-born are responsible for 58% of those in Sweden who are convicted of rape and attempted rape, while making up only 17% of the general population. That means those foreign-born, almost all of them from Muslim countries, are more than three times as likely to be convicted of rape and attempted rape than native Swedes. Yet the Swedish authorities take care not to publicize these and related figures on general criminality, fearing that the so-called “far-right” members of the Swedish Democrats would cite them as reasons for cutting down on the number of Muslim immigrants. Stockholm’s political and media elites continue to deny a worrisome reality, because they don’t want to be blamed for having caused this mess in the first place, by their criminal laxity on immigration.
Globalists’ multicultural experiment in Sweden has resulted in Swedes no longer being safe in their own country. The journalist Ingrid Carlqvist explains that immigrants have been destroying “our country”:
They are destroying our country and making us terrified of everything. It’s the violence from these immigrants, it is the rapes, the killings, and you know, just not being safe in your own country that makes people very, very scared and desperate, and they lose hope.
Swedish children are being tortured and abused in school and in the evenings throughout the country. There are constant cases of immigrant kids, mainly Muslims beating up, raping, and torturing Swedes. Carlqvist reports that the Islamic immigrants and their children “have a very aggressive culture, and they hate us.” She goes on to explain:
They think that they have a mission from Allah to take over this country. So they really enjoy humiliating and beating up young Swedes.
Is there anything here that has been exaggerated? Don’t Swedes now feel, in Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmö and a half-dozen other cities, much less safe than they did 20 years go? Don’t Swedish women now fear to go out alone at night? In Malmö, once a center of Jewish life, now the the few hundred Jews who still live in the city must worry about street attacks on them by Muslims. They are especially vulnerable to attacks by Muslim gangs, who simply beat up Jews for the sheer fun of it. These immigrants, taught in the Qur’an to despise Infidels, are quite unlike those placid and industrious and grateful migrants who arrived in Sweden earlier from eastern Europe.
In the now familiar approach to these issues, the left-wing Swedish rulers and their media refuse to address the underlying cause of the phenomenon of Muslim rapists – Islam’s canonical intrinsic devaluing of women. Islam teaches that a woman is worth less than a man. And a non-Muslim woman is worth less than an Islamic one. According to the words of Muhammad and the Quran, men are in charge of women. Prophet Muhammad actually encouraged the rape of women captured in battle. He even provided instructions on how women should be raped after capture, telling his men not to worry about coitus interruptus since “Allah has written whom he is going to create.” Allah also told Muslim men to rape women captured in battle; they were told to do it in front of their husbands.
The migrant rapist’s treatment of women is learned from the Islamic faith and his Prophet’s example. There is nothing unusual or deviant in how the Swedish woman was treated in Islamic terms. Instead of the Swedish left-wing politicians and media condemning Islam’s view on women, they will insist the migrant’s crimes are isolated and protect their socialist and sanitized reconstruction of Islam, created for Western consumption. The cost of covering for Islam continues to put Westerners in great harm.”
Sweden’s welfare system is now wobbling, and may collapse as a result of the staggering sums the government must now expend on these Muslim migrants, who are masters of taking advantage of every benefit the generous Swedish welfare state offers. They live in free or greatly subsidized housing, receive free food, clothing allowances, enjoy free medical care and free education, including language lessons and lessons in “Swedish culture.” These lessons in language and Swedish culture are intended to provide Muslim migrants with the tools that will allow them to better integrate into society, but these last lessons have been singular failures. Why should a Muslim migrant who, as the Qur’an tells him, belongs to the “best of peoples,” want to integrate into a society fashioned by and for Infidels who are – again according to the Qur’an – “the most vile of created beings”? It is only when Muslim migrants stop thinking in such terms that there may be hope for some of them to integrate into Swedish society. How likely is that to happen?
Meanwhile, the Swedes themselves should recognize that their naive dream of integrating Muslim migrants is incapable of being realized, not for want of trying on the part of the indigenous Swedes, but because of the attitudes of the Muslims themselves, who are in no hurry to be employed, but are happy to pocket whatever they are offered by the welfare state, aid which they regard as a kind of proleptic Jizyah. It would be folly for the Swedes to blame themselves for this state of affairs. In fact, much the same outcome can be observed in all the European countries where large numbers of Muslims have been allowed to settle. But Sweden’s elites have been particularly naïve, and allowed into their country, during the last two decades, immigrants who now make up close to 20% of the current population (and the Sweden-born children of migrants make up another 12%).
At the very least, one hopes that a sufficient number of Swedes will come to their senses, and work to halt all further Muslim immigration into their country. If some feel there is an economic need for migrants to perform menial tasks, instead of letting in Muslims who, in any case, are not eager to work hard, and feel only contempt for and resentment of the Infidel Swedes, the Swedish government can bring in more of the millions of Ukrainian refugees now clamoring to be let in. These Ukrainians are the real refugees, fleeing possible death in a war zone, unlike the Muslims from North Africa and the Middle East who are only economic migrants, hoping to batten on the offerings provided by European welfare states. Many of those Orthodox Ukrainians differ from the largely Lutheran Swedes in sect, but share the same religious heritage (Christianity), and have the same views about the equality of men and woman, about the natural political, civil, and religious rights of all people, and about the desirability of democracy, none of which are shared by the Muslim migrants.
If Sweden can do these things, it should still be possible for the country that gave the world King Gustavus Adolphus, Linnaeus, Ingmar Bergman and Ingrid Bergman, smorgasbord, glög, and Akvavit, and Raoul Wallenberg, to step back from the brink. Swedish elites made a big mistake in opening their doors to Muslim migrants. But all is not lost. There is still time, by voting in the Swedish Democrats, to reverse course.
