NPR does Swedish “backlash” against Muslim migrants story

More in our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series….

“Don’t touch my mosque!” (Stockholm)

“The Muslims want to change us!”

Finally the news is creeping into American mainstream media—Sweden is in turmoil because it has virtually opened its borders wide to any Muslim migrant who could get to that wonderful world—the generous socialist welfare state of Sweden!

From National Public Radio:

In the 1990s, the face of immigration to Sweden was someone like Robert Acker. His family emigrated from Bosnia when he was 6 years old.

“I got along with the Swedes early on,” he says in American-accented English from his years playing basketball in Kentucky and New York. “But now, I believe it’s a totally different thing.”

Acker lives in the southern Swedish city of Malmo, an industrial center that has become the power base for the far-right Sweden Democrats.

“They want us out,” says Acker. “They just want Swedes here.”

Across Europe, far-right anti-immigrant parties are gaining political power. This is true from the Slavic countries to the British Isles, and from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean.

The change has been especially dramatic in Sweden, which for decades has been known for its openness and tolerance.

Thousands of refugees from Iraq and Syria have settled there recently. Many of them are Muslim — and the ethnic tension is palpable.

“We can’t take care of all the people in the whole world who have needs in their lives,” says security guard Filip Wennerlund.

Wennerlund didn’t mind Christian immigrants, but he believes it’s not working with the Muslims, even though Sweden has had a Muslim population for decades.

“Often they don’t want to come here and change,” he says. “They want to change us. And we don’t want to be changed. So that’s a conflict.”

There is a lot more, read and listen here.  Especially pay attention to the discussion about the rise of the Sweden Democrats and how Muslims are trying to tie them to recent mosque fires.

BTW, my guess is that Sweden will be the first European country to fall to the invasion.  Why do Americans not see what is coming for us?
