Swedes express fear about future of their country as government opens the doors to Syrians

I saw this story this morning on twitter (thanks to Fjordman).  It reports the reaction of Swedes who are willing to tell the truth about what is happening to their country, albeit readers must get through 20 paragraphs or so of blather before getting to the juicy part.  Blather about how “welcoming” Sweden is to immigrants, blather about how generous the socialists of Sweden are, and blather about how they are a bit annoyed at the rest of the world (the US, Russia and Israel specifically) because other countries don’t share their generosity toward immigrants.

As I see it, at least we aren’t as stupid as the Swedes, but we are working on it!

See our earlier post when Sweden announced (for Obama’s benefit) that they were letting in any-and-all Syrians who want to come and live there permanently.

My Imaginary Socialist Swede:  We’ll destroy our country in the process, but we will show those stingy racist Americans what good people we are!

So about twenty paragraphs into this article, the other shoe drops!

Gothenburg Mosque, one of several in the city, was funded by Saudi Arabia

From Digital Journal (emphasis mine);

And here’s where things get a bit sensitive, especially in such an overtly politically correct society as Sweden. Most immigrants, says Scheldt (Gothenburg resident Jonas Scheldt), are “Muslims from harsh backgrounds and traditions.”

“Approximately 10 percent of Sweden today are Muslims from the Middle East and North Africa,” Scheldt continues. “Most of them don’t work. They breed like rabbits. They want special Sharia law. They don’t want music in schools. They’re against homosexuals, abortion, human rights. Some Swedes are becoming afraid of what’s to come in the future.”

Fear for the future of their country. It’s a theme echoed by some of the other Swedes we interviewed.

“Afraid, yes that’s the right word for Swedes,” agrees Weibert.

Fear of increasing crime, which many Swedes blame on the increased immigrant population, is palpable.

“Since we are a socialist country with a ‘humane’ way of thinking, we have been creating problems for ourselves,” argues Weibert. “We have a huge problem right now with segregation and ‘hoods.’

And that’s only because we’ve opened our arms to everybody without having the ability to take care of all the people in the right way. So now we are having problems in Gothenburg with shootings, which take place almost every day now.”

“Crime has gone sky high,” concurs Scheldt. “There were five shootings last week in Gothenburg.”

Such crimes were virtually unheard of a generation ago.

There are other crimes that Swedes blame on immigrants.

“In Malmö the Jews are being persecuted by Muslims because of Israel’s wrongdoing,” adds Scheldt. “Sweden also now has one of the world’s highest rates of rape. When I was young, we didn’t have to lock our doors. Girls are afraid to walk home in the evening. There’s more violence, missing people, trafficking, drugs, killings [and] abuse of the welfare system.”

“Sweden has never been like this before,” Scheldt says. “My 75-year-old father has been knocked down and robbed twice in the past two years. My sister got stabbed.”

Maybe Sweden will wake up in time, but they have such a huge Muslim population now I doubt they can reverse their downward trajectory.  But, look on the bright side—as the country dies, watching the death throes might be enough to shake some sense into other Western countries before it’s too late.    That is why we write about Sweden so often.

About the photo:  You can read about the mosque here at wikipedia.  I had planned to use a photo of Muslim immigrants that was published with the original story this morning, but I see it’s gone.  Funny how the media is so skittish about showing Muslim faces.

So much for “welcoming the stranger” in the socialist dream land of South Africa

Dubbed the “Rainbow Nation” by the world’s communist and socialist dreamers, South Africa is anything but a mecca for all people. 

They call it “xenophobia” here instead of “racism” because the crimes being perpetrated on Somalis (and vice versa) are black on black crime.

Oh, the irony!

From the Global Post:

More than 150 Somali-owned shops have been looted in four days of xenophobic violence in South Africa’s coastal city of Port Elizabeth, police said Wednesday.

“Since Sunday when all the trouble started, 150 shops have been looted and it is spreading to other townships. The situation is still tense,” police spokeswoman colonel Sibongile Soci told AFP.

At least 70 suspects have been arrested in connection with the pillaging and will appear in court this week, she said.

The ransacking of the small shops that sell mainly groceries and popularly know as spazas, was sparked by the killing of a 19-year-old South African boy by a Somali shop owner on Sunday.

It occurred in New Brighton township following an argument over cellphone airtime.

Since then, attacks on the shops spiralled and spread to other townships as locals claim they were avenging the killing.

Amid widespread poverty and unemployment, frustration in South Africa’s run-down neighbourhoods often boils over into anti-immigrant violence.  [Remember there was a time when South Africa was the jewel of the continent—ed]

An explosion of deadly attacks in 2008 killed more than 60 people and displaced thousands into refugee-style camps.

The African Centre for Migration and Society, a think tank, says 140 foreigners were killed and 250 seriously injured in the country last year.


A Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University social commentator Theodore Petrus said South Africans needed to correct the misconception that foreigners are here to take their jobs and women.

We have written a lot about the “xenophobia” crisis plaguing this increasingly impoverished country.  See ‘Rainbow Nation’ here.

Editor’s note:  For regular readers, we have posted stories from India, Israel and Australia [update:  Sweden] in recent days about migrants and the impact they are having as they arrive illegally in modern capitalist countries looking for asylum, the warning signs should be very clear for America.  At some point in time, we will be facing the same problems on a national scale—violence, riots, and political upheaval.  We need to get our borders sealed now!

What is going on in Rhode Island? Another immigrant-run fraud bust!

Less than two weeks ago, we reported on this food stamp fraud bust in Providence.   Now there is news that a Middle Eastern extended family (Lebanese maybe?) has been indicted in a cigarette trafficking scheme with additional charges for food stamp and social security fraud involvement on the side.

For new readers, these fraud stories are a hobby here at RRW while we wait for someone to kindly begin an entire blog on the topic of how immigrants are ripping off the US taxpayer from sea to shining sea.  And, someone needs to figure out how they are buying all of the convenience stores which become their hubs of operation.   I promise you there will be fresh stories daily!

As you read this, remember what open borders lobbyist David Lubell said in a “Welcoming America” press release earlier this week:

…..we recognize the tremendous contributions that immigrants make to the social and economic fabric of American communities.

This is the story of one such creative entrepreneurial family!

From the Providence Journal:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — An eighth person and more counts against the initial seven people charged with a cigarette-trafficking operation in May were added in a superseding federal indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Providence on Wednesday, the U.S. Attorney’s office reported Thursday.

The new indictment charges the defendants with conspiracies to defraud the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (known as SNAP and often called the food stamp program) of more than $3 million, and to defraud the Social Security Administration.

The food stamp fraud allegations were added after a federal and state investigation announced Sept. 5.

In May 2013, an indictment charged Wissam Khalil, 40, of Central Falls, a Providence convenience store owner; his brothers Bassam Khalil, 49, and Najd Khalil, 25, of Pawtucket; Abdullah Alnahas, 36, of Cranston, a Providence convenience store owner; Bassam Kiriaki, 45, a Pawtucket accountant; and Richard Larrain, 23, of Providence, an enlisted soldier in the U.S. Army Reserves, in a scheme to possess, transport and distribute contraband cigarettes in Rhode Island.

A seventh defendant, Valeria Mendez (Khalil), 30, of Central Falls, wife of Wissam Khalil, was charged with conspiring to make and making false statements to a government official in an application to the United States Department of Agriculture to participate as a retailer in the food stamp program.

The eighth defendant, Nazir Khalil, 75, is the father of Wissam, Bassam, and Najd Khalil, and lives outside the United States. He is charged with participating in a conspiracy to defraud the Social Security Administration by collecting benefits.

Several of the defendants are additionally charged in the new indictment with conspiracy to engage in money laundering; money laundering; structuring; conspiracy to engage in food stamp fraud; and food stamp fraud.

Also charged was Mashhod Afzal, 25, of North Providence was charged with conspiracy, food stamp fraud and lying to a federal agent,

There is more, read it all!  They set up shell corporations in Virginia and the Army Reserves guy did the trucking dressed in his uniform!   As is almost always the case, I can’t find photos of the perps, nor is there any mention of the immigration status of the family.  The photo above is from this story back in May.
