Sweden’s new epidemic: clan-based crime
A summer of violence has left even jaded Swedes reeling

‘We have an obvious problem,’ admitted the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven recently. He was referring not to the Covid pandemic, but to a summer of crime that has left even jaded Swedes reeling in disbelief. There are regular bombings, hand grenade attacks and shootings. Young men are killing each other at a horrific rate — ten times that of Germany. The feeling is growing that the government has completely lost control. Yet, while Löfven has finally acknowledged the existence of the problem, he still seems in denial about its true nature.

Last month in Botkyrka, south of Stockholm, a 12-year-old girl walking her dog was killed by a stray bullet from a gang shooting — and in a TV interview her friends explained that shootings are simply part of daily life in their neighbourhood. One child said that she hears gunfire from her bedroom window almost every night. And this is perhaps what’s most shocking for older Swedes: how resigned the children in these areas are; how much they’ve grown used to the violence.

It is all too much for Mats Löfving, the deputy national police chief, who earlier this month decided to speak plainly about the nature of the criminals he and his colleagues are fighting. There are at least 40 family-based criminal networks — or clans — in Sweden, he confirmed: immigrants who came to the country ‘solely for the purpose of organising and systematising crime’. According to Löfving, they make their money through drug-trafficking and extortion and ‘have a great capacity for violence’.

The interview was a bombshell. The Prime Minister has always tried to talk about crime as a socioeconomic problem — and he stuck to this line in response to Löfving, saying that ‘I do not want to link crime to ethnicity’. — a government mantra which insinuates that even asking questions about the link between crime and immigration is xenophobic. But the issue, of course, is not skin colour. It’s about the problem of an imported type of crime: families from non-Swedishcultures who stay in their own circles and prey on Swedes of all ethnicities. These are people who have set up parallel systems of government that challenge the Swedish state — something that politicians cannot bring themselves to acknowledge.

Conflicts between rival criminals last month escalated to a point where gangs took an unparalleled move to establish their dominance. Masked and armed men set up roadblocks, and controlled cars entering certain neighbourhoods in Gothenburg. Streets were deserted as the gangs ordered residents to stay inside. The headmaster of a local school put it bluntly: ‘Checkpoints controlled by criminal militia are something I last saw in Afghanistan. I never thought it would become a reality in Sweden.’ Meanwhile, home visits from doctors have been suspended in the area for safety reasons; and staff from care services for the elderly and disabled are being escorted on their rounds by security guards.

The government’s solution to problems like these has long been to deny that they are there. When people began to talk about ‘no-go zones’ a few years ago, the phrase caused so much anxiety in official circles that the crime spots were dubbed ‘go-go zones’ in a PR initiative. For years, the government’s position, as well as the narrative reiterated by large parts of the media, has been that the notion of rising crime is some kind of fake news. Based on this idea, the state has set up a PR budget and employed staff to write ‘fact-checking’ posts to deny international reporting about what’s going on. One of the ‘myths’ busted is that shootings have increased.

Only weeks ago, Löfven famously claimed that even if there were a crime problem, it was nothing to do with immigration. Annie Lööf, leader of Sweden’s Centre party, says that ‘many of these gangs and their families have been in Sweden for decades’ — as if this would contradict the notion that immigration and failed integration is a root cause of the problem. Löfven has even pointed to upper-class youths in a small suburb of Stockholm as an explanation for gang murders, maintaining that rich kids’ consumption of recreational drugs is creating a demand that leads to shootings in poorer areas. Can he really think that drug abuse among a small fraction of the country’s youth explains why there are ten times more gang murders in Sweden than in neighbouring countries?

But although it is willing to scapegoat affluent teenagers, the government has so far remained silent about the changing nature of the crime, some of it so grotesque that it’s hard to discuss. At the end of August, two teenage boys were abducted, raped and abused for hours at a cemetery outside Stockholm. When police found them they had been stabbed and buried alive in a pit. Somehow they survived.

These deplorable acts of aggression now have a name in Sweden. So-called ‘humiliation robberies’ are on the rise, and the victims are often children and young people who are not just mugged — mainly by immigrant youths — but also subjected to all kinds of horrifying and degrading treatment.

Because of the threat to children, Swedish parents are beginning to wake up. They’re beginning to realise that their children are not growing up in the low-crime country they themselves knew — and they feel that the time to talk honestly about it has long since arrived.

Story from the BBC website on events in Sweden. This is from 2019 and I have not seen a single BBC TV news story or investigative program on the increasingly parlous state of the country. The channel is obviously not overkeen to highlight the matter.

'The situation is very stressful': Swedish police fight to crack down on gang crime

'The situation is very stressful': Swedish police fight to crack down on gang crime

Sweden remains a country with low levels of violence, but police say that they are struggling to control criminal 'clans' that have gained a foothold in disadvantaged areas of the country.

With close family loyalties and little regard for the authorities, a few dozen criminal gangs now wield considerable influence over some of Sweden's disadvantaged neighbourhoods, say experts.

Media outlets report on drug wars, blackmail, settlings of scores and witnesses too fearful of repercussions to testify.

"Have you seen the movie 'The Godfather'? Then you know what it's like," journalist Johanna Bäckström Lerneby, who wrote a book about one of Sweden's most infamous crime families, told AFP.

Gang members tied to the family Bäckström Lerneby wrote about recently made headlines in Sweden when, during a feud with a rival gang in August, they set up makeshift roadblocks, stopping cars and asking to see passengers' ID cards.

Interviewed by broadcaster SVT on condition of anonymity, a young man involved in the car checks who called himself "Samir" said the controls were set up to "protect residents and children in the area".

The feud came to a halt in late August -- but not because police arrested any suspects.

Instead, members of several gangs met at a Gothenburg hotel and agreed to end hostilities, effectively ending the strife overnight.

"It's very frustrating, because it is a good solution in the short term... but it was resolved in the wrong way," local police officer Fredrik Terje told SVT.

"It's these criminal networks that reached a peace deal and set the agenda, while us authorities stood on the sidelines," Terje added.

The problem of "clan gangs" has made headlines since early September, when deputy police chief Mats Löfving told Swedish Radio there were at least 40 family-based criminal gangs in Sweden.

"Far from everyone wants to be a part of Swedish society," Löfving said, adding these families had come to Sweden solely for the purpose of committing crime, bringing with them their own parallel systems of government.

Löfving also said these families were making their way into business and politics in order to wield more formal influence, primarily in disadvantaged suburbs, many of which have a large proportion of residents with immigrant backgrounds.

While Sweden has had a generous immigration policy since the 1990s, it has struggled to integrate many of the newcomers, with thousands failing to learn the language proficiently and find jobs in its highly skilled labour market.

"Those who live in these vulnerable areas are often relatively poor people who don't have a choice, even if they wanted to move away," Bäckström Lerneby said.

The violence has also harmed innocent bystanders. In early August, a 12-year-old girl was shot and killed by a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting in Stockholm, sparking a public outcry over the ruthless violence.

Speaking at a press conference in early September, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven called the criminal gangs a "poison in our society that we need to get rid of".

Overall, Sweden remains a country with low levels of violence. Its murder rate in 2018 was 1.07 per 100,000 inhabitants compared to the European average of 2.39, according to Eurostat, compared to 5.0 in the United States according to the FBI.

But Sweden's Minister for Home Affairs Mikael Damberg expressed concern in an interview with AFP that the family-based gangs had gained a foothold.

"These family-based networks have existed for some time in Sweden. They have been able to dig in, especially in the vulnerable areas in Sweden, where the state hasn't been present enough," Damberg told AFP.

To combat this, Damberg said it was important for authorities to move back in.

Police have made it a priority to increase their presence in these neighbourhoods, an important move "to show that Swedish law applies in Sweden", he said.

The government has adopted a slew of measures, including added surveillance powers for police as well as tougher sentences for drugs and weapons-related crimes and young offenders.

But in a highly-publicised statement in late August, police officials admitted they were still struggling.

"We are working intensively, around the clock, and despite that the serious violence is continuing... We're not backing down and we're not giving up, but the situation right now is very stressful," national police chief Anders Thornberg said.

During the first six months of 2020, 20 people have been killed in 163 shootings in the country of 10.3 million, compared to 42 deaths in 334 reported shootings in all of 2019, according to police.

'No more migrants' – Sweden changes its asylum policy

I hope this story is true for the Swedes who are suffering from a multitude of social problems, like crime, and rape from migrants.
Sweden, a country with one of the most liberal asylum policies in the world, is drastically changing its attitude towards migrants.

Although the country will provide material aid to Greece, it has decided not to accept any refugees from the burned Moria camp or other Greek islands, unlike Germany, which has agreed to take in 1,500. Sweden has thus joined Austria and the Visegrád Four countries of Hungary, Poland, Czechia, and Slovakia, which refuse to accept migrants from the camp, writes Czech news portal Novinky.

It is not clear whether the change of course in asylum policy concerns only the problem of relocating the 12,500 people from the destroyed Greek Moria camp, or whether Sweden is changing its approach to migration in general. The fact is, however, that the topic of migration dominated the 2018 Swedish elections, and Prime Minister Stefan Löfven is now under pressure. As Swedish media points out, his minority government coalition with the Green Party is the weakest in 70 years.

In 2015, Sweden recorded over 160,000 asylum applications, which was the highest number per capita in Europe. Sweden, along with Germany, was one of the most sought-after destinations for refugees. At the time, the country was proud of its liberal approach.

After five years, the country faces a dramatic increase in crime and failures in its integration efforts.

"If migration is so strong that integration is no longer successful, we risk further problems," said Prime Minister Löfven last week.

Sweden struggles with the spread of gang-related crime in socially disadvantaged suburbs. For example, since the beginning of this year, 27 people have died during the shootings between criminal organizations. Almost all the victims were young men and members of migrant gangs, wrote the German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau daily, which writes that the growth in clan violence has "shifted the discourse in the country".

The Swedish municipality wants to be prepared for a possible new wave of refugees and have a chance to decide on its own whether to accept migrants
Sweden: Local politicians attempt to stop refugee settlements in Sölvesborg

The local government in Sölvesborg, Sweden, wants to stop refugees from moving to their municipality again, and have thus decided to defy the Settlement Act, the SVT reported. The municipality wants to be prepared for a possible new wave of refugees.

Already a year ago, the governing politicians in Sölvesborg raised the question of whether a municipality should be able to say no to receiving designated refugees. Then, the coronavirus pandemic hit and the question lost its priority, however, the issue is now relevant again and is expected to be raised during the city council meeting in November.

For Sölvesborg's part, it has received 16 refugees that were assigned to the municipality this year. Paul Andersson, municipal councilor, still has not solved their placement problems, but the current joint board's proposal is about future placements and whether they can be rejected.

"We want the issue resolved before a new refugee crisis,“ said Andersson.

When asked about what other laws the municipality can defy, he answered that he could not think of any, adding he had no plans to break any law but rather challenge it.

The Swedish government has two conflicting laws
Sölvesborg believes that the municipal self-government laws conflict with the national settlement law. Although municipalities should in theory have the right to decide how many migrants they accept, up until now they have been unable to resist due to the Settlement Act, which states that municipalities are obliged to accept new arrivals based on instructions from the Swedish Migration Board.

"We want to get it properly investigated so that we know what applies,“ added Andersson.

The current distribution between municipalities takes into account the municipality's labor market conditions, population size, total reception of newly arrived and unaccompanied children, and the extent of asylum seekers staying in the municipality.

Moreover, asylum seekers can now choose to arrange accommodation on their own according to the so-called EBO Act. Since last summer, around 30 municipalities, including Malmö and Eskilstuna, have had to make exceptions from the EBO Act by pointing out areas that are considered particularly vulnerable.

The asylum seekers who choose to move to these areas will lose their daily benefit allowance. The purpose is to steer asylum seekers towards different areas in order to improve integration efforts.

The municipality attempt comes after recent news about radical change in the Swedish asylum policy. At the beginning of October, although the country agreed to provide material aid to Greece, it has decided not to accept any refugees from the burned Moria camp or other Greek islands.

They have to rob more people if they lose their allowance. More crime. But it is better for the Swedes when they stay in those moslims municipalities. All swedes can move out of those municipalities, and leave them to the immigrants to fend for themselves.

Sweden: Immigrant gang beats young woman in Stockholm metro as 50 people watch on

Natalie says she doesn't care about being called racist and blames foreigners for the rise in crime and sexual harassment in Sweden

On Friday night, Natalie was traveling by public transport in Stockholm when an immigrant gang of men spotted her. They started harassing Natalie by sitting on her, and when she asked for space, she was told, "What did you say you little whore?"

The gang then turned violent and attacked Natalie (pictured above) in front of about 50 metro train passengers who just watched without intervening.

The incident happened around 9:00 p.m. Natalie described the man who attacked her as three Arabs and one African in their 20s and 25s.

The Samhällsnytt online daily spoke to Natalie on Sunday, when she was still visibly shaken by what happened to her.

"I stepped on the metro, and just when I sat down, someone came and sat on me. I asked the person to move because he was literally sitting on half my hip. The person said, 'Huh, what did you say?' I said, please, can you move. Then the person said, 'What did you say you little whore?'and slapped me in the face while laughing," Natalie describes the incident.

Natalie says that she was shocked and withdrew to have more space. The person who started harassing her was then encouraged by his fellow friends who surrounded Natalie. She thought that they were about to rob her, but instead, they started humiliating Natalie and groping her.

"Then a dark-skinned guy came and sat down opposite me, and another guy opposite him. There were a total of three more guys. When I tried to get out of there, they blocked my way, and then the dark-skinned man started hitting me too. They kept calling me a whore, and I was just trying to protect myself from the beating. I screamed for help and tried to pick up my phone to call 112, and that was when they became fully aggressive. They took my phone and threw it away," continued Natalie.

When the metro train arrived at Mariatorget station, Natalie tried to get out of the carriage and finally succeeded. She grabbed her bag and her phone and then left the metro train.

"I do not know how I even managed that, but I tried to take a picture of them. But then they came and tried to take the phone away from me. Then, two of the men pulled me down to the ground where they hit and kicked me while I was in the fetal position," Natalie recalls.

The gang members kept kicking her in the head and ribs while repeating rape and murder threats.

But despite the gang's harassment in a metro car full of passengers, no one intervened.

"There were about 50 people just watching. No one, absolutely no one, helped me," says Natalie.

Later, a Swedish man stepped forward and handed over his business card to Natalie, saying that he would testify against the men at a trial.

Natalie also tried to save herself by pointing out the surveillance cameras to the migrants. Then, one of the attackers pointed a finger to the camera and shouted, "most excellent whore", while laughing.

Natalie said she does not know why no one intervened, but added that more and more people in Sweden are being attacked. The chance that the attacker is a foreigner is quite great, Natalie added, a fact supported by statistics which have tied Sweden's rising crime rate with its growing migrant population.

"Things that happened to me would not happen ten years ago. I see much more sick and brutal things happening now and, unfortunately, all the foreigners who have entered the country are to blame. You can call me a racist or whatever you want, but I check statistics and take the metro every day. Not that I will continue to take the metro after this, but I see what happens," says Natalie.

The Samhällsnytt daily has spoken with the regional command center (RLC) in Stockholm, which confirmed that they were notified about an incident in Mariatorget's metro station after 9:00 p.m. but could not comment on it further. According to the police, no one has been arrested.

The case of Natalie is reminiscent of an incident in July involving three migrant men who beat a Swedish mother in central Uppsula.

As the Swedish public sours on migration to the country, the government, in a radical change in policy, recently joined countries like Austria and Hungary in rejecting migrants from the burned down Moria Camp in Greece.

strong that integration is no longer successful, we risk further problems," said Prime Minister Stefan Löfven on the topic of accepting refugees.

Jews in Malmö are fearful of migrants and fleeing the city, says Swedish writer at the UN

According to Paulina Neuding, anti-Semitism comes mainly from Sweden's migrant communities

Jewish institutions and Jews are being attacked and harassed in Sweden, according to Swedish writer Paulina Neuding.

At the end of September, she spoke at a conference of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, where she described the current coexistence issues facing the Jewish community in the Swedish city of Malmö after migrants who came to the Scandinavian country en masse in 2015, according to Czech news outlet Echo24.

Neuding believes the Swedish government is blind to the issue.

“I live in Mälmo. It was once a safe haven for Jews, but today only 200 remain and are being harassed," said Paulina Neuding at the UN.

According to the writer, Jews in Malmö face recurrent attacks. The city, which is over a third Muslim, is known for its anti-Semitism, with most of them concentrated in the area of Rosengaard, which features 70 percent unemployment rates. In 2015, 137 anti-Semitic incidents were reported in the city, including an attack on a rabbi, leading the Jewish population to shrink by 50 percent from its 2005 levels.

In a test of the city's anti-Semitism, an hour-long documentary on Swedish television showcased a Swedish journalist putting on a kippa and sitting outside a café in Rosengaard. He was referred to as a "Jewish Satan" and people threw eggs at him from their apartments, which was all captured on camera.

In 2020, chants in Arabic about killing Jews were chanted at a protest in Malmö.

"Anti-Semitism is rampant among left-wing and right-wing extremists. In Malmö, anti-Semitism currently occurs mainly in migrant communities. That is something the Swedish government does not know how to deal with. Let's call things by their real names: Tolerance of the intolerable. Jewish institutions are under attack. Children in Jewish kindergartens have to play behind bulletproof windows," Neuding pointed out.


One of the most notable attacks on Jews in recent years involved a firebombing of a synagogue in Gothenburg. Of the three individuals convicted of the attack, one was a Palestinian migrant whose asylum application was subsequently rejected, while the other two, a Palestinian and a Syrian, both had Swedish residency permits.

According to Neuding, Jews are afraid of harassment, but the problem does not concern only Jews.

"Five years ago, a couple of journalists tried to cover a neighborhood where many migrants live. But the inhabitants drove them out. The Swedish government promised improvement of the situation, but nothing has changed," said Neuding.

Sweden played a significant role during the migration crisis more than five years ago. At that time, millions of migrants from the Middle East fled en masse to Europe. Sweden was the most popular destination after Germany. Now, after five years, some neighborhoods in Swedish cities are practically uninhabitable for Swedes.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, who once said "Europe does not build walls" in protest against anti-migration sentiment, admitted last week that migration poses a threat to the country.

"If migration levels are so strong that integration is no longer successful, we risk further problems," said Löfven on the topic of accepting refugees.

SWEDEN: Young Muslim invaders scare people by coughing on them, pretending to spread COVID-19

A video shows how two Muslims have fun scaring Swedish residents by coughing on them, implying that they might be infected with the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Samnytt (h/t Marvin W) It was on March 25 that the YouTube account “Alpha & Ali” published the video that was recorded in Eskilstuna. The Muslims involved in it are Ali Qasem and Hussein Matar.

The video clip shows how the Muslims ask passers-by for directions to, among other places, hospitals while coughing into a handkerchief. As the people withdraw, the Muslims continue to cough in their direction.

Skrämmer folk med coronasmitta.

In the comments section, most write in Arabic. One of these is Nesrin Mohamad who according to a translation writes “sweet” and that the people should continue with what it does.

Abdullah Al-abdullah writes “well done guys” and adds several laughing crying emojis.

Well the Quran does say for Muslims to terrorize the enemies of Allah by all means at their disposal. However, Allah also says that he does not oblige Muslims to terrorize kafirs who have not fought the Muslims for their faith, driven them from their homes or assisted in the driving out of the Muslims. On the contrary, the Swedes have GIVEN the Muslims homes. I suppose permitting Muslims to act nice towards kafirs who have helped them is not the same as OBLIGING them to do so and still gives Muslims the option of terrorizing inoffensive kafirs IF THEY FEEL LIKE IT. Perhaps our resident Muslim can provide clarity on this matter. SAM?

Burning Koran NOT a hate crime, Swedish prosecutor says, after dropping probes into stunts that triggered rioting

Desecration of the Koran by burning or kicking the book is not a hate crime in itself, a Swedish prosecutor has said, as investigations into two anti-Islam protests, which had triggered Muslim rioting in Malmo, were dropped.

Swedish authorities have decided to close preliminary probes into the actions of a far-right Danish political party, which caused rioting in the city of Malmo in August. The members of Stram Kurs (‘Hard Line’) were suspected of inciting hatred against an ethnic group. But prosecutors said the burning and kicking of copies of Islam’s holy book did not constitute a hate crime.

The two controversial stunts took place on Friday, August 28. The burning was staged and filmed in the Emilstorp neighborhood, while the kicking action, which organizers dubbed “Koran football,” happened shortly afterwards in the Stortorget square. Swedish police eventually arrested three party members on suspicion of inciting hatred. The videos of the two protests outraged the local Muslim community, triggering rioting in the city.

While desecrations of the Koran in itself did not constitute a hate crime, some of the chants that could be heard during the kicking session could be considered as such, Malmo prosecutor Sofia Syren told the newspaper Sydsvenskan on Monday. But investigators failed to identify who shouted these, making prosecution impossible. So last week the probes were closed.

The riots themselves, however, have left a more reliable body of evidence, it appears. Last week, six people were charged with various crimes related to the spree of violence. A 31-year-old man got busted thanks to videos he himself filmed and published on TikTok during the rioting. The five others are all teenagers, including four 16-year-old boys and a 17-year-old girl. Prosecutor Tomas Olvmyr said more indictments were likely to follow.

The Malmo rioting involved an estimated 300 participants, who vandalized property and clashed with the city police, leaving 15 officers injured and causing an estimated $465,000 in damage, most of it done to police vehicles.

Ironically, the person who instigated the Koran-defiling stunts in Malmo, didn’t participate in them personally. Rasmus Paludan, the head of Stram Kurs, was banned from entering Sweden for two years before the protests and got arrested for violating it before he could join fellow party members. Last week he was taken into custody again in Paris, as he was preparing to stage yet another Koran-burning near the Arc de Triomphe. He was ordered to leave France.

Swedish authorities have decided to close preliminary probes into the actions of a far-right Danish political party, which caused rioting in the city of Malmo in August
I seeee.... if Muslims riot when their "holy" book is treated with disrespect by those their "holy" book treats with disrespect it is the LATTER who are "causing" the riots and not the rioting Muslims. By the same "logic" Samuel Paty "caused" his own decapitation. Interesting how "progressive" commentators have internalized Islamic notions of cause and effect.

Rapist Gets Slap on Wrist

Well the Norse men did raid al-Andalus a few years back and probably had their wicked way with some believing ladies that fell into their hands. So all's fair in love and war I guess.
