And, be sure to read Jerry Gordon’s “Backhand Bitchslap” at ‘New English Review’. Things are heating up in chilly Sweden.
Sweden is the country in Europe most often lauded for its open door and welcoming attitude to immigrants, but some cities, like Malmo with its Muslim neighborhoods that have become no-go zones, is now having problems with unruly youths, members of the Religion of Peace. (Hat tip: Mars)
Dozens of youths have rioted in the southern Swedish city of Malmo for a second consecutive night, setting cars on fire and clashing with police. “We’ve had a very difficult evening,” a police spokeswoman told the AFP news agency late on Thursday.
“There have been fires burning since this afternoon… extensive damage to public property, and… stone-throwing and bomb threats against police.”
She said the trouble was linked to the closure of an Islamic centre.
The owner of the building, in an immigrant neighbourhood, had decided not to renew the centre’s lease. The centre, which included a mosque, had to move out.
So instead of simply finding another building to lease as civilized people would do, the youths are rioting and destroying property.
Come to think of it, George Bush isn’t involved in Sweden either. Humm!
On being nice:
Just as I was writing this post a couple of people sent me this link to an article in American Thinker by Bill Warner today about how being nicer to Islamic radicals is futile. Sweden may be the ultimate example of how niceness will get you no where with certain people.
