Muslim (mis) behaviour in Sweden

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

In Sweden there are about 400 000 muslims. That is more than in any other Scandinavian country (Norway,Denmark,Finland). The muslim population in Sweden makes about 4,5% of a total population of 8,9 million people(in 1980 there were about 30 000 muslims in Sweden!)

Unfortunnately, many muslim immigrants show very little or no interrest at all to fit into their new country(don´t get me wrong, there are also good immigrants). Every year, immigration costs Sweden about 40-50 BILLION SEK! Many muslim groups such as arabs,kurds,somalis do not even work. They come to the country with their large families only to live on the welfare and refuses to assimilate into society. In many suburbs of Stockholm, people cannot even speak swedish(or very bad). Almost everywhere you go in Stockholm you see women in hijabs. Many young girls are forced into marriages. Anti-semitism is also on the rise again.

Because of the increasing immigration in the 80´s and 90´s, Sweden has become one of the most violent countries in the western world(according to Interpol). In October 1998, four iranian immigrants set off a fire in a discoteque, in the next biggest city of Gothenburg, killing 63 people and wounding about 250. The one of those four who got the "hardest sentence" only got 8 years in prison! Of all convicted rapists, an overwhelming majority are muslim immigrants. The rape victim are almost every time non-muslim (swedish). In January 2000, a 14-year old (!) swedish girl is gang-raped by nine muslim immigrants of the age 14-16 in a north-western suburb of Stockholm. The criminals were from Iran, Iraq and Morocco. Six of those animals were acquitted at the trial, the other three were sentenced to therapy with a socialworker! This is how rape-victim is treated in Sweden. I wonder how the United States would react if these things should happen over there?

In January 2002, the 26-year old kurdish woman Fadime Sahindal was shot dead by her own father because she had a swedish boyfriend. Because of her wish to be independent and live her own life. Oh, by the way, Fadimes brother was convicted with two other men of gang-raping two swedish girls!

This is Sweden 2004:)
