"Lindgren says 30 vehicles were set ablaze in six suburbs where mainly immigrants live"

They've got a problem over there with Muslim youths who REALLY do not want to integrate AT ALL with their new country.
Before you ask, there aren't a lot of other "immigrants"...they're just too polite to come out and say it.

"The unrest began Sunday in response to the May 13 shooting, in which police killed a 69-year-old, knife-wielding man in a northwestern suburb."

Classy...burn down a nursery because the police were doing their jobs.

From BBC:
"We have groups of young men who think that that they can and should change society with violence. Let's be clear: this is not okay. We cannot be ruled by violence."

More than 80% of Husby's 12,000 or so inhabitants are from an immigrant background, and most are from Turkey, the Middle East and Somalia.


Police shoot a machete wielding maniac, and the immigrants riot. Religion of peace.

They can't really integrate because they can't be citizens. No birthright citizenship means those born in Sweden or many other European countries are forever held apart. Father not a Swedish citizen? Too bad.

I'd be pissed off too. Hell, I don't even want to step foot in another country where I'd lack citizenship protection.



That's right...everybody should just change their laws to accommodate the muslims.  While we're at it, let's get rid of booze and bacon...don't want to offend them.  Oh and we need to cover up our women.

Don't like a country's laws?  Go somewhere else or just stay home.

FrancoFile: Teknowaffle: Vectron: Ah,  muslim immigrants.
What a boon for Swedes!

Aha - a local observer

So what's the problem with assimilation/naturalization/employment:

Racist Swedes who won't hire brown immigrants?
Immigrants who won't learn Swedish or English?
Immigrants with no employable skills, or who won't learn employable skills?
Lazy teat-suckling immigrants?




There is a combination of all these things.

1. There are some people who won't hire brown people. A very, very small few, but yeah, there are racists.
But this leads to 2. There are a lot of people who have poor language skills, and that is the reason they don't get hired. One of the problems is that the adult education here will put through anyone without regard to their real skills unless they are completely beyond hope. I have been here less than two years, and I am in the class below the top level of Swedish as a second language. The others in the class have been here for as many as 10 years and are in no way qualified to be in the class.

There is no point system like they have in Canada. I don't have any statistics, but among the people in my program myself, and my American friend are the only ones with a college degree. Tech workers tend to have the best luck among immigrants for getting jobs from people I have known.

And yes, there are some who milk the system. You can say I am as I am a fulltime student.

I sense a sarcastic tone, even though you describe pretty accurately what is actually going on.  You've got groups of people who were given asylum from war torn hell holes, handed universal welfare, and they return the favor by burning the city down when ever the mood strikes them.

Tangiers is a pretty cool place. Perhaps you are thinking of somewhere else

I guess you stayed in the tourist section/high income districts.


Does any city in the world actually have "nice" slums and ghettos? I can't think of one.

one person was arrested on suspicion of arson of a cultural center housed in a 19th century building.

Gangs of up to 60 youths also set fire to a school and a nursery and hurled rocks at police and fire fighters.



Charming folks. I can't imagine why the places they left are shiatholes.

If only Sweden could do more to accommodate their demands, everything would be alright.

Agnes Gonxha's Confidant: OK I'll just go ahead and say it. fark all the ungrateful immigrants. Your mother and father were granted entry because of the deplorable condition of your country of origin. You have access to public education (of better quality than most countries) You have public libraries that look like palaces. You have access to medical care, dental care, eye care. Food dispensaries that look like a Carrefour.

BUT you hold on to some resentment because you do not feel loved? (in the form of not being given a job)

But let's not blame the youths. It's their parents who neglected to teach them gratitude. Yes gratitude. No need to kiss whitey's ass. Just show your gratitude by NOT burning things and damaging property.

I realize you cannot send them back home but they need a serious education.

Has anyone been to London in the past 25 years?


talking like this about the criminals in America is wrong.  It is ok for every country but the US to defend its borders.

It is even ok for Mexico to do so. Liberal logic.

Vectron: Ah,  muslim immigrants.

See, a lot of people act like the high immigration here is some sort of white guilt. But it isn't. It is importing a labor force for crap labor, and for producing babies.

See, Sweden has a generous social care system. But that system has to be fed with tax dollars. More people available to work means more people paying taxes to support the welfare system. With an aging population, the costs associated with the social programs.

People like to pretend that the generous child leave here is to empower women, and let them have access to the work place. Sure, that is part of it, but one of the real reasons is so women make the babies to fund the future. In a way this backfires, because if you work in a rapidly changing environment, tech and so on, do you really want to hire a woman who after you invested in training them gets pregnant, and is then gone for a long time, forcing you to hire someone in her place while she takes off lots of time. My wife had issues when she was looking for a job because she is almost 30, married, and has no kids. Places look at her as a womb waiting to be filled.

Immigration here is about investing in the future of the social welfare state by making sure that the future will hold enough taxpayers.

Not true.
Children born in Sweden to stateless or immigrant parents can acquire citizenship pretty easily, if I read this document correctly.

In Europe, riots (as in the article) start in the suburbs because that's where the poor people live.

Actually, it's really not that different in the US these days.
