Swedish Bus Soap Opera Turns Psycho (update!)

Editor: Here’s the latest on the Swedish Refugee Resettlement Bus Soap Opera by guest writer ‘Pungentpeppers.” If you missed the first chapter, click here.

Middle Eastern ‘asylum-seekers’ protest their resettlement in Sweden’s frozen north country by stripping to their underpants in the bitter cold. Cry me a river!

The asylum bus melodrama has turned psycho, as two of the Arab asylum seekers strip to their underwear and crouch on the ice in protest.

Accommodations unsuitable! They want government-funded apartments in Malmo or Stockholm. http://www.expressen.se/nyheter/migrationsverket-vi-har-varit-tydliga/

Were they pretending to be polar bear swimmers who jump into the freezing ocean at the Jersey Shore on New Year’s Day? Do they think they’re “Fe-Men”? Maybe they’re sexually frustrated potential public exhibitionists? Only their psychiatrist knows for sure.

They say they’re terrified by bears and wolves and snow. But then one asylum-seeker adds, “I walked 1400 kilometers from Syria through Turkey and Macedonia to get to Greece!” But Macedonia has Europe’s largest wolf population. Who is he kidding?! [Gotta double check every little thing they say!]

Freelance journalist Jens Ganman, who reported from the scene, says the men unanimously insist that they were given no information about where the bus was headed; however, he cannot vouch for the accuracy of their account. [I believe they originally agreed to go on the bus because they imagined the destination would look different. However, after they changed their minds, they could not admit having made a mistake – preservation of their Middle Eastern notions of personal honor and infallibility would not permit that. So instead they insisted they were lied to. Lying happens all the time in the Middle East! LOL!]

The refugees ought to thank their lucky stars they aren’t Europeans! Here are how European migrants live in Sweden—in makeshift shacks! http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-12-17/the-skinheads-of-europe-don-t-like-refugees-neither-do-the-doctors-and-lawyers.html

Despite the craziness of the bus protest, Ganman, our hero on the scene, maintained his sound judgment, as can be understood from his interview with Sweden’s “Nyheter Idag”. When asked what he thinks about the standoff, Ganman points out that Swedish politicians are giving orders to the Migration Board that are increasingly difficult to carry out. [Sweden expects to receive another 100,000 asylum seekers this year on top of almost the same number in 2014.]

He also finds it strange that the Swedes aren’t having a stronger public debate about the profit-driven motive behind all of this asylum resettlement activity! In Sweden, as in the U.S., private businesses are profiting from taxpayer-paid refugee benefits. For example, Ganman mentions the phenomenon of Bert Karlsson, the former head of an anti-immigration political party who flipped and hopped on the taxpayer-paid asylum gravy train to make a business out of housing asylum seekers. However, ultimately Ganman blames the political establishment for the mess created.

At noon on Friday, the asylum-seekers agreed to leave the bus and take the offered accommodations. They said they were promised apartments after three months. However, the Migration Board refused to verify this or discuss the terms of the deal offered.

The story may not be over yet. A couple hours later, protester Moaweyh Ramly spoke with Sweden’s “Expressen” to say that the refugees are very disappointed. There are no guarantees they’ll get apartments. “They have cheated us.” [We’ve heard that line before!]

Important update January 4th: You must read the Swedish Surveyor for more on the outrage!  It is in English!

Uh oh! Monday could be hot in Germany as Muslims plan counter-demo against Islamophobes

The demonstration from both sides is planned for Cologne which saw a huge outpouring of concern for the Islamization of Germany last October.  However, the largest demonstrations against further Muslim immigration to Germany have occurred in Dresden on recent Mondays.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s New Year’s message: If you question Muslim immigration you have “hatred in your hearts.”

From the World Bulletin (emphasis is mine):

At least 13 non-governmental organizations of Muslim and ethnic-Turkish immigrants in Germany announced Thursday their joint decision to protest against the right-wing populist PEGIDA movement.

“We are calling on all citizens to join demonstration in Cologne on Jan. 5 and take a stance against racism, xenophobia, hatred against foreigners and hostility against Islam,” the organizations said in a joint statement.

“We will support all democratic initiatives and allies that oppose PEGIDA and other groups inspired by it,” the statement added.

Germany’s Muslim Coordination Council, a platform of four large Muslim organizations in the country, signed the joint statement along with associations representing Turkish-German businessmen, TUMSIAD and MUSIAD-NRW.

Union of European Turkish Democrats, one of the most influential organizations among Germany’s three million Turks, also backed the call for joining the counter-protests in Cologne, organized by a German citizen initiative supported by political parties, trade unions and church organizations.

Cologne is one of Germany’s most populated cities known for its multi-cultural plurality and large number of immigrants.

A recently formed right-wing anti-Islam movement, Cologne Against Islamization of the West, is also planning a demonstration in the city Monday. The initiative is a copycat group inspired by the Patriotic Europeans Against Islamization of the West or the PEGIDA, which gathered more than 17,000 protesters in the city on Dec. 22. The rise of the right-wing group made headlines in Germany and abroad.

Germany witnessed an increase in suspicion and negative feelings towards Muslims in recent months as far right and populist parties sought to benefit from a growing fear of Islam and Muslims, largely influenced by reports of murders and atrocities committed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorist group in the Middle East.

Nearly 30 percent of Germans polled by the Stern magazine said they believed anti-Islam demonstrations organized by PEGIDA were justifiable.

Meanwhile, Merkel says we love our Muslims (underlying message, our economy needs those cheap laborers!)

From OnIslam:

CAIRO – Addressing the nation on the eve of the New Year, German chancellor Angela Merkel urged people to help refugees fleeing conflicts, telling them to turn their backs to the “racist”, “full of hatred” anti-Muslim grass-roots movement.

“It goes without saying that we help them and take in people who seek refuge with us,” the chancellor said, Deutsche Welle reported.

Merkel also urged Germans to welcome immigrants, adding that Europe’s biggest economy must welcome people fleeing conflict and war.

She also lamented the rise of the new movement, Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA), that has been holding weekly rallies in the eastern city of Dresden for weeks.

Referring to protests that took place before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Merkel said, “Today many people are again shouting on Mondays: ‘We are the people’. But in fact they mean: You do not belong – because of the color of your skin or your religion,” Reuters reported.

“So I say to everyone who goes to such demonstrations: Do not follow those who are appealing to you! Because too often there is prejudice, coldness, even hatred, in their hearts.”

She really does have that Leftist lingo down!

Don’t you think it’s interesting that some never learn from history.  Germany, of all places, should know the perils of silencing speech.

Immigration changes coming in Canada; first large group of Syrians arrive

Sorry I don’t have time to report more, but Canadian and other readers interested in the future of Canada, should go see the latest changes to immigration policy expected for Canada this year.   See CBC News via Huffington Post Canada (Immigration Changes To Watch For In 2015).

A big batch of Syrians has arrived, no mention of whether they are Muslim or minority refugees.   Remember Canada announced it would put Christians and other religious minorities at the top of the welcome list outraging the UN and other members of the international humanitarian industrial complex.  The UN wants Canada to take 10,000 Syrians (no doubt mostly Muslims) in the next two years!

And, I don’t see anything in the list of changes that will help stop the Somali gang violence plaguing western Canada.

Lewiston, ME: 14-year-old Somali boy charged with arson is capable of “criminal thinking”

Another diversity is strength alert!

May 2013 Lewiston inferno. http://bangordailynews.com/2013/05/03/news/lewiston-auburn/another-multiple-building-fire-hits-lewiston/

Gee, no kidding!  Wait until you read the latest on the Somali refugee youth who is charged with burning down four apartment buildings in Lewiston nearly two years ago.  He could end up walking free!

Update January 14th:  Plea deal struck, arsonist sent to juvenile facility for three years.

I laughed when I saw the Sun Journal headline which said he was a “moderate risk” to the community if released, but that was for setting fires.  What else is he capable of?   Hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers.’  (Emphasis below is mine)

LEWISTON — Abdi Ibrahim is capable of “criminal thinking” and is considered a moderate risk to “act out” using fire if released from the Long Creek Youth Development Center in South Portland.

Ibrahim, who is facing four felony counts of arson in connection with fires that burned four apartment buildings and a garage on Bartlett and Pierce streets in Lewiston on May 3, 2013, is considered a higher behavioral and social risk to the community because of a history of poor social skills and chronic behavior problems in multiple settings, including assaulting others and running away.

And even though he has hidden cigarette lighters in his bedroom and twice been found smoking since he was placed in state custody, a state forensic examination found no specific indication he has “any fascination with fire as a means of acting out.”

Now, here is that interpreter issue again. Remember “welcoming” communities, it is your responsibility to find and pay for interpreters in every case involving an immigrant (that means in school discipline situations, for health care issues, and for the criminal justice system, among others).

Ibrahim will appear in 8th District Court on the morning of Jan. 12 to argue that his arson confession to police be suppressed because an interpreter did not translate his Miranda warning correctly.

Ibrahim was born in Africa and spent his early years living in a refugee center in Kenya before his family emigrated to the United States. They first settled in Baltimore, Md., moving to Lewiston when Ibrahim was 6 or 7 years old. (Hey, look at this—Baltimore dodged this bullet!—ed).

The law requires a minor to have parental consent or have a parent present during a police interview, but according to Ibrahim’s attorney, Jeffrey Dolley, Ibrahim’s mother, Marian Ibrahim — who is Somali and not fluent in English — did not have an adequate understanding of the procedure for that interview because the Miranda warning wasn’t translated to her or her son correctly. As a result, her consent was never “given.”

According to court records, Ibrahim was interviewed at the Lewiston Police Department, where he waived his Miranda rights, including his right to remain silent, while his mother was assisted by an interpreter over the phone.

Ibrahim, who is now 14 years old, was 12 at the time of his taped confession.

According to court records, Dolley learned the Miranda warning was incorrectly translated after he had a language expert listen to the audio recording of the police interview.

During that interview, after initially denying he was involved, Ibrahim confessed to setting a fire at the back of a three-bay garage behind an apartment building at 149 Bartlett St. by lighting a cigarette and paper with a lighter, using gasoline as an accelerant.

The teen was initially found not competent to stand trial and the case was suspended while he received emotional and behavioral counseling in residential care at Sweetser Children Services in Saco. In August, the court found him competent to stand trial, and he was transferred to Long Creek Youth Development Center.

At the same time and in preparation for trial, the court ordered the state’s Department of Health and Human Services to conduct a risk assessment of Ibrahim’s behavior, including his likelihood to start fires.

Read it all. The state believes he needs 24-hour supervision and the residential care facility in which he was initially placed, and which did the evaluation, is incapable of doing that. His parents think he is fine without that supervision.

The assessment said he was only at a “moderate risk” for setting fires if released in the community, but you need to go read the almost unbelievable description of the charming family he would return to.

Think about it, this kid could walk free over a technicality!

We have page after page of posts on troubled Lewiston, the Somali capital of New England, click here for more.

And, one more thought.  Are those “Welcoming America” agitators including the cost to a community of immigrant crimes when they promote those “studies” about immigrants bringing economic boom-times to American cities?  I bet not!

Canada: Did more Somali gang violence lead to New Year shooting death?

Ho hum!!!  Here we go again, we hadn’t seen one of these Somali shootings in Western Canada for awhile (and then we weren’t looking) since back in around 2012 (here is one post) when we reported on several gang-related violent deaths of Somali young men.

In 2013, this Somali mother (and others) called for a federal task force to figure out why their kids were being killed in gang violence. They want more jobs for the youth too. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/somali-canadian-parents-propose-solutions-to-violence-1.1351564

No one is cooperating with police, so what else is new!

From CBC News:

A Toronto mother has travelled to Calgary where her son Abdullahi Ahmed, 26, was slain in an early-morning New Year’s shooting that sent six other people to hospital.

Ahmed died after he was shot Thursday morning at a New Year’s Eve party that went well into the morning at a residence in the city’s southwest.

Ahmed left Toronto for Calgary six years ago.

News of his death spread quickly through Toronto’s Somali community.

“My reaction is one of sadness,” said Ahmed Hussein, national president of the Canadian Somali Congress.

He said Toronto’s Somali community is worried about the shooting given the history of young men from his community who get hurt or are killed in Alberta gang violence.

“In the past there were the deaths of over three dozen Canadian-Somali males in Alberta,” Hussein told CBC News. “This had continued from 2008 to 2011.”

It’s not yet clear if the New Year’s Day shooting in Calgary was gang-related.


Police don’t know if the shooting was targeted or random. At least 50 people were at the party when the shooting started.

Calgary police questioned at least 15 people and report that many are not cooperating with their investigation.

Isn’t it wonderful how diversity brings beauty and strength to otherwise boring communities.
