The Facts about Sweden and Islam

We know that rape is a horrific crime, one that is often covered up by victim shame and by collusion by the authorities. American feminists have been leading the charge against rape culture. 

We understand that rape is notoriously underreported and that statistics about rape are unreliable. We are told that any woman who declares herself to have been the victim of rape or sexual abuse must be heard. And her testimony must be taken at face value. The opponents of rape are so committed to their cause that they are willing to deprived anyone accused of it of due process of law. 

Now we know that such is not the case if the rape happens in Sweden and if the perpetrator is a Muslim refugee. Evidence has suggested that Sweden has become the rape capital of the Western world. At least, it was understood to be such until Donald Trump—in a bizarre misstatement—suggested that the mass of Muslim immigrants admitted into Sweden were causing serious problems. Just as they do in France, Germany and Belgium… among others. Whatever Trump meant, anyone who believes that Muslim immigration is not a problem in Europe should go back on his meds.

Whatever the facts about rape in Sweden, it is also true that a Swede can be prosecuted for accusing an immigrant of rape. You see, he is committing Islamophobia and Xenophobia if he accuses a Muslim immigrant of rape. Remember a month or so ago when a half-dozen Afghans raped a teenage boy in Sweden. Remember when the authorities refused to expel them… because Afghanistan was too dangerous. The Swedes live in a feminist bubble.

Anyway, Swedish authorities, mortified for having exposed so many Swedish women to rape and for having undermined national Swedish unity are adopting the politically correct approach: they are repressing the information. And then they are accusing Trump, among others, of playing fast and loose with the facts.

Since 2000, there has only been one research report on immigrant crime. It was done in 2006 by Ann-Christine Hjelm from Karlstads University. It emerged that in 2002, 85% of those sentenced to at least two years in prison for rape in 2002 were foreign born or second-generation immigrants.

A 1996 report by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention reached the conclusion that immigrants from North Africa (Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia) were 23 times as likely to commit rape as Swedish men. The figures for men from Iraq, Bulgaria and Romania were, respectively, 20, 18 and 18. Men from the rest of Africa were 16 times more prone to commit rape; and men from Iran, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia, 10 times as prone as Swedish men.

A new trend reached Sweden with full force over the past few decades: gang rape — virtually unknown before in Swedish criminal history. The number of gang rapes increased spectacularly between 1995 and 2006. Since then no studies of them have been undertaken.

David Goldman added:

Sweden not only stands by while large number of its women are raped, but outlaws public discussion of the causes. Michael Hess, a Social-Democratic population, was condemned by a Swedish court under a law forbidding denigration of ethnic groups. for writing in 2014, “There is a strong connection between rapes in Sweden and the number of immigrants from MENA-countries [Middle East and North Africa].”

In the alternative universe of Western leftists Sweden does not have a rape problem. And Islam does not mistreat women.

Forgetting about Sweden for a moment, ask yourself why people believe that Muslims subject women to horrendous mistreatment. You might think of the predations of ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria. One recalls that there was no ISIS until Barack Obama declared victory and withdrew from Iraq, but surely the rapes and sexual slavery suffered by Yazidi women suggests that purist Muslims do not treat women with very much respect.

One understands that in some Muslim countries, a woman who reports a rape can be jailed for having sex outside of marriage. And one understands that in Egypt, the incidences of the sexual harassment and molestation of women on the street are uncountable. Remember Lara Logan, raped in Tahrir Square, Cairo by a dozen men while no one could help her. And let’s not forget that Shariah law allows wife beating and honor killings.

Rape and the sexual abuse of women are endemic to Muslim culture. Only those with ideological blinders refuse to see the problem—because they are fighting the good culture war against white privilege.

Even if you admit that rape statistics are slightly unreliable and even if you refuse to accept the reality of the laws about sexual behavior in Muslim countries, I would ask you to consider this: how much have Muslims contributed to civilization, recently? That is, within the last thousand years or so.

You might ask  yourself what Western Judeo-Christian civilization has contributed or you may ask yourself what the world’s long Jewish state has accomplished, and you will list a string of great achievements. With Islam you will not find very many, if any. After all, the attacks on Israel, have been incited by the simple fact that the Israelis had succeeded when the Palestinians had failed.

Islam is undergoing a civilizational crisis of major proportions. Now, certain weak-kneed Europeans want to embrace the crisis, even if it destroys their own civilization.

Whatever the incidence of rape and the crime statistics, we do know, from the German government that of the 1,100,000 Muslim refugees admitted by Mutter Merkel, a mere 34,000 have gainful employment. That is a very, very large unemployment rate. Even if you do not believe that German refugee centers are not promoting rape culture, you do understand that such a large number of out-of-work and unemployable migrants means more crime.

Those facts are unimpeachable. And they suggest, as I have remarked, that the refugees do not consider themselves to be beggars, but the vanguard of an advancing army. They do not want to contribute. They do not know how to contribute. They are not going to learn how to contribute. They are going to convert Europe to Islam.

The issue is roiling the continent today. In Germany Chancellor Merkel’s political fortunes have been crashing. In the Netherlands Geert Wilders is running a political campaign on the platform of de-Islamizing his country. For the record Wilders was recently convicted of speaking ill of Muslims—in a nation that prides itself on its free speech. And in France Marine Le Pen’s presidential campaign, based on anti-Muslim rhetoric, looks to be seriously competitive. Even the Socialist president Francois Hollande has declared that France has a serious Muslim problem.

Such is the real world we live in. Yet, if you read the major American media you would think that our biggest problem is a Russian invasion. Remember when a group of Algerian refugees, having been expelled from Finland arrived in Murmansk, Russia. Remember what happened when said refugees when to a dance hall and started molesting the local women. In case you forgot, Russian men pulled the Algerians out into the parking lot and sent most of them to the ER.

One recalls that in feminist Sweden, where female political leaders don headscarves to meet their masters in Tehran, boys in public school are taught that they must pee sitting down… because it’s sexist to pee standing up.

In the alternative universe, Islam is not a problem: Islamophobia is. (See this season’s version of Homeland— a catastrophic artistic failure.)

In the alternative universe rape is not rape if it is committed by Muslim refugees. It only counts as rape when it is committed by white male fraternity brothers in American universities. There, it does not even matter whether it happened or not. It’s the thought that counts.

In the alternative universe, we can ignore the threat of radical Islam and fight to the death to repel Vladimir Putin and of course Donald Trump.

I am, unbelievably, starting to come around to the red pill advocates thinking, that these "feminists" really do detest wimpy men and are looking for patriarchial men who will not take their shit. Sweden's wimmin leaders have shown this thoroughly, by passing laws to suppress their native men even more, while lifting up the patriarchial thugs for, as the RP'ers say, "Gina Tingles".

Found this on SDA. Don't know how authentic it is, but I can believe it in this pagan society we live in now.

It does seem clear that Leftists are putting their heads in the sand and their narrative of oppressed people blinds them. And this blindness probably did help put Donald Trump over the top last year, and perhaps will propel Marine Le Pen to a majority win in France's upcoming election and runoff? How long will Sweden last in denial?

Stuart: You might ask yourself what Western Judeo-Christian civilization has contributed or you may ask yourself what the world’s long Jewish state has accomplished, and you will list a string of great achievements. With Islam you will not find very many, if any.

Not fully true, although it looks like fair game for the last 900+ years, which is a long time. I recall Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about how the Arabic empire under Islam was the center of all learning during the middle ages, and they carried and extended much of the scientific traditions of the Greeks and Romans. Like that's why but things changed when an Islamic rule got the bright idea that a persuit of knowledge science was antireligion and rejected.

Here's a 10 minute video. His argument is that religious fundamentalism in all forms is the enemy, making religious truths as literal ones that must be imposed on believers and nonbelievers alike. And deGrasse Tyson's purpose as well to suggest that the West also has an opportunity to abandon science and make the country into a Christian theocracy, unconstitutional not withstanding.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl1nJC3lvFs The Intellectual Collapse of Islam - Neil deGrasse Tyson on how religious fundamentalism is the root of the collapse of the Islamic Golden age of Science and Mathematics in Baghdad. An Islamic scholar named Hamid Al-Ghazali deemed Mathematics evil.

I also recall that ISIS, in their hatred destroyed many pre-islamic artifacts in Iraq. So just like the Nazi's wanted to remake history in their image, ISIS leaders want to erase the rise of civilization that existed before their idol god.

Also recently Canadian Psychologist made a political video, challenging the unsymmetrical condemntation of "Islamophobia" without looking at the suppression that true believers of Islam - where you can be murdered under their beliefs for disrespecting God/Allah.

In contemplating the sanity of Donald Trump or his followers, or his hysterial opposition, I think that "mass psychosis" has to be involved, each side obsessing about a different part of the elephant of truth, trunk, tail, legs and neglecting the whole.

If we imagine large parts of the Islamic civilization are under a mass psychosis, we can be correctly frightened, and wonder what to do about it. And one approach apparently is to help those who want to escape, find new lands like ours to share. While others see these immigrants as carrying this virus, and prefer to put up wall and keep them all out, and even evicting those who are already here.

It is still strange to me that Detroit blacks in the 1960s took up Islam as a superior religion, abandoning Christianity which in itself has nothing to do with slavery, but it seemed to be one tool for their suppression, and used to suggest superiority and inferiority. So like my congressman Keith Ellison comes from that tradition.

So the cat of "freedom of religion" is out of the bag, and we're not going to ban people by religion, but I suppose slowing all immigration can and will be done out of fear, while we "try to figure out what the hell is going on."

Minneapolis has a large Somali immigrant community we now have to work with, and they elected their first state rep. I've not heard about any rape or prostitution rings going on here connected to immigrants, but I suppose we need to pay attention and do things better here, even if Minnesotans are at least half as naive as the Swedes.

Ares, you should read http://www.powerlineblog.com/ for the reports of the doings of the local Somalis.

I don't understand all the handwringing about Swedish women getting raped. In the last general election, immigration was a major issue. Swedish women are getting exactly what they voted for. Why should anyone else care, when, apparently, Swedish women don't seem greatly bothered?

It is, however, an object lesson for other democracies.

Ignatius Acton Chesterton OCD said...

This reminds me that Leftists don't at all care about the issues/matters they claim to care about. It's all a fraud. Leftists love women = Leftists don't care about women who get raped in a majority-white country by non-white people. White power is countered by non-white power. Case closed. Fairness. Identity politics is addictive, quashing reason. Enough!

Has anyone noticed that the left and its paid demonstrators all want every one to care about them, but do not care about anyone else. Immigration is couched in caring about families, but there seems to be little caring about American families who have their sons and daughters raped and killed. SJWs want every one to care about their feelings, but care less about anyone else's feelings.
The bigots on the left are all agains't bigotry except their own bigotry. Women want men to respect them, among other things, but have little respect for men. You pick the subject or issue and one begins to notice there only appears to be that which is important to the Left that matters and every thing else is covered by name calling, invectives and pejoratives. It is as if these graduates and/or students of academe are incapable of extrapolating their ideas into the ultimate reality. An aside here: I am beginning to think many of these people who demonstrate should sue academe because their understanding of the words they use is not what a literate person should have learned in a place of higher learning.
It has gotten so bad with a self imposed narcissism that anyone who points out the fallacies that are extant in most of the tantrums and diatribes becomes suspect no matter how correct they are about the issue at hand or the facts.
Anyone who follows what happens in the world knows that Sweden, Germany, France, et al have real problems with immigrants from the ME assimilating into their countries. When the police have "no go" zones then something has gone terribly wrong and sadly most of this is self imposed. In Sweden case Stockholm Syndrome may actually apply. Sort of like feminists blurring the line between male and female and then finding out that blurring those lines has only served to hurt women. If anyone can claim to be whatever sex they want to be what good does it be to be a feminist when that term is now a micro-aggression agains't anyone who wants to be aggrieved.
Some of this would be funny it it was not so counter productive to a healthy vibrant culture.
