The gangs of migrants who are behind an epidemic of street robberies in Sweden are discussed here: “Swedes urged not to wear branded clothing or jewelry amid spike in robberies and migrant gang violence,” by Thomas Brooke, Remix News, August 29, 2023:
Police in the Swedish county of Värmland have urged residents not to wear branded clothing or expensive jewelry when walking through the county’s largest city of Karlstad due to a rise in robberies and migrant gang violence.
As reported by the Samnytt news outlet, citizens are being told to dress poorly to ensure they aren’t robbed, with local authorities identifying several areas within the inner city and the suburbs that should be avoided.
It’s a bad idea to wear any expensive items, such as “a branded vest, gold chains, or a cap,” said Tia Jylhä, the crime prevention coordinator for Karlstad district police.
The young people referred to are primarily recruits to migrant gangs, which have surged in notoriety across Sweden in recent years, as stated by several high-ranking law enforcement officers and Magdalena Andersson when she was serving as Swedish prime minister last year.
“Integration was poor, and alongside this, we have experienced intense immigration. Our society was too weak, while money for the police and social services was too little,” Andersson said of the state of affairs that has enabled migrant gangs to thrive in Swedish cities.
The Swedes must not blame themselves for the current dismal state of affairs. “Integration is poor” because it is the Muslims who refuse to integrate into that society, for they believe themselves to be “the best of peoples,” while the Swedes, as non-Muslims, are “the most vile of created beings.” Andersson should know that the epidemic of Muslim crime in Sweden is no different from that in the rest of Western Europe, where Muslim migrant gangs are making life hell for a great many people.
“The level of violence in the capital is high, and the number of people involved is frightening. Every day, three new people join the criminal environment, often children and young people,” warned National Police Chief Anders Thornberg back in May in reference to Stockholm; however, this is happening across Sweden….
Muslims now in Sweden consist almost entirely of economic migrants who arrived to take advantage of the many benefits the generous Swedish welfare state offers: free or greatly subsidized housing, free medical care, free education (including vocational training), unemployment benefits (without the need to have a prior work record in Sweden), family allowances, and more. But to supplement these benefits, young Muslim males engage in crimes of property: street robberies and home burglaries. And they are responsible as well for a seep rise in crimes of violence, too — rapes, assaults, murders. The rate of Muslim criminality, not just in Sweden but all over Europe, is three to four times that of non-Muslims. And that is why the police in Karlstad issued their warning to the women in the city: “Don’’t wear expensive jewelry or clothing.” That’s the best they can do. Meanwhile, the politicians in Stockholm dither, and refuse to recognize what is staring them in the face. To wit: the large-scale presence of Muslims in Sweden has resulted in a situation that is far more unpleasant, expensive, and physically dangerous for non-Muslims, than would be the case without that large-scale presence. And when they finally do comprehend the Islamic roots of the problem, only then will they pass legislation to prevent any further Muslim immigration, and work to reduce the number of Muslims who have already been allowed to live in generous, tolerant, rich, and discombobulated Sweden.
While all this is going on, an Iraqi, Salwan Momika, in June set fire to a Qur’an outside a Stockholm mosque during the major Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, which triggered widespread condemnation throughout the Muslim world. In July, the same man stomped on and kicked a Qur’an in front of the Iraqi Embassy in Stockholm. In retaliation, Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani ordered the expulsion of the Swedish ambassador from Iraq and the withdrawal of the Iraqi charge d’affaires from Sweden. He also forced Ericsson, a Swedish company, to halt work in Iraq. But that was not enough to calm angry Iraqis; calm has not returned, either to Iraq or to other Muslim countries. The Muslim countries are demanding nothing less than the abandonment by Western democracies of the most important right of all, the one without which democracy cannot exist – free speech. The government of Sweden has distanced itself from the Qur’an burnings, calling them an “Islamophobic” act: “The Swedish Government fully understands that the Islamophobic acts committed by individuals at demonstrations in Sweden can be offensive to Muslims,” the foreign ministry said in a statement on July 23.
Muslims have no regard for Western freedoms. Unfree themselves – monarchies and despotisms prevail in the Arab and Muslim world — they do not appreciate, nor understand, what freedom of speech means, and why it is the most indispensable of rights in a democracy. The alacrity with which Sweden is ready to denounce those determined to exercise their free speech rights is disheartening. There is no need to distance themselves from those brave souls. Western countries should say only this: protecting the “freedom of speech” does not constitute “approval” of such speech. That’s enough. That’s more than enough.
