Injured ISIS fighter traveled back to Sweden for medical care before returning to Syria to continue fighting

The Swedish government has allowed an ISIS fighter to return to the country to receive medical treatment from the state for an injury he received in Syria. They then allowed him to return to Syria to continue fighting for the ISIS terrorist organization.

Khaled Shahadeh, a former resident of Gothenburg and an ISIS terrorist, has reportedly bragged about receiving medical treatment from the Swedish state after he was badly wounded in a clash with the Syrian military in 2014.

From a prison inside of Kurdish-held territory, 29-year-old Shahadeh told a crew from the Kurdish media outfit ReProduction, “They fixed the nerves. I recovered. Got married and returned here with my wife,” Expressen reports.

During the interview, Shahadeh goes on to say that when he returned “home”, he was greeted at the airport by staff from the Swedish Security Police SÄPO.

“They were a little worried about why I returned to Sweden,” Shahadeh continued

“They immediately started asking questions about why I returned and what I would do in Sweden. They made it clear from the start that I had not done anything that violated the law. They said there was no law that says I should not join al-Dawla or do jihad,” Sahadeh claimed.

In 2015, Shahadeh returned to the Islamic State in Syria. He’s admitted to having witnessed mass executions of prisoners.

“Some prisoners were executed, others had their heads cut off. It’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen with my own eyes,” he said.

Shahadeh remained fighting alongside ISIS terrorists until the final battle in Baghouz during the spring of 2019 when he fled, and ended up in the hands of the Kurds.

Once again, he’s banking on the sheer stupidity and incompetence of the Swedish state to allow him back into the country.

“I want to ask for all the people forgiveness, not just my family. If Sweden wants to help us, let them help do it. We are grateful if Sweden helps us out of here,” Shahadeh concluded.

Sweden has the highest percentage of jihadists per capita in Europe who’ve traveled to the Middle East to join terrorist organizations

Swedish schools to erase ancient history from history class

No more Plato or Aristotle. No Rome, no more teaching of Swedish Great Power era in Swedish upper grade history classes. This is the new move from the Swedish Board of Education, which wants Swedish pupils to focus on Hitler, World War 2 and the following postmodern era in the late 20th century instead.

Recent days, the Swedish debate has focused on the social democratic next move to make the Swedish people less historically aware. Due to lack of lesson time, the Board of Education now suggests that the History subject must be radically changed.

Gender issues, climate and migration are of course included elements in the new suggested revised course plans of social sciences, which includes history.

At the upper grades 7-9, where pupils are 13-15 years old, there will no longer be any history taught dated older than the year 1700. All studying of the democratic cradle in ancient Greece, Rome, or The Swedish Great Power era (1611-1718) when Sweden ruled the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea, will be erased from history class.

“Sweden will be embarrassed”
”It’s horrible, bizarre and absurd, Dick Harrison professor of History and author outbursted when the suggestion was presented to the public previously this week.

“As a historian, who knows some about this, I am forced to react. Only the idea that the Ancients are unimportant to understand the present is bizarre and absurd.

Everything that surrounds us is a legacy from the ancient Greeks, he claimed and said that if the suggestion becomes reality, ”Swedes will be embarrassed worldwide”.

“Excuse me, but it’s so f*** sick, I find it hard to believe it. Naturally, I expect the suggestion to be withdrawn, the upset professor said.

More postmodernism
The revised course plans are the result of lack of history lesson time in Swedish schools, the School Board claims. Pupils in the upper grades must focus more on the 19th century, with particular focus on the Holocaust, the cold war and the ideas that have formed Sweden during the post war era. This includes raising awareness about gender issues, migration and rasism. There will however, be time enough to cover Western slavery and colonialism during the 18th century and onwards.

However, the 100 million dead from communism in the 20th century, are not mentioned as an important subject to study in the revised course plans. Neither are Mao’s and China’s demolition of books during the Culture war.

Migrants have made Sweden’s unemployment rates among the highest in the EU

Despite continuous promises from PM Stefan Löfven to reduce unemployment rates, Sweden’s has continued to skyrocket thanks to the vast numbers of welfare-dependent migrants they’ve imported.

According to newly released Eurostat figures, the Scandinavian country now appears to be the new sick man of Europe, now ranking 24th out of 28 EU member states in unemployment, the daily newspaper Expressen reports.

In 2013, PM Löfven set a goal for Sweden to have the lowest unemployment rate of any EU member-state by 2020. But with the vast numbers of welfare-dependent migrants that have been taken into the country, and with 2020 fast approaching, it’s not looking like Löfven’s ambitious goal will be reached.

Thanks to its newly imported underclass, Sweden now enjoys an unemployment rate that rivals those seen in France, Spain, Greece, and Italy. Statistics have consistently revealed that on average, migrants living in Sweden are unemployed at much higher rates than native Swedes are.

Last year, statistics released by the Swedish Public Employment Service revealed that the unemployment rate for migrants living in Sweden was 19.9 percent, compared to just 3.6 percent for native Swedes.

Integrating large numbers of migrants into the Swedish labor force has proven to be more difficult than many had originally thought it would be. Many local municipalities are facing financial woes as a result of the significant strain placed on their social systems.

In the municipality of Bengtsfors, officials have been forced to ask the national government for financial aid packages due to the enormous financial burdens that have been placed on taxpayers as a result of taking in too many welfare-dependent migrants.

Stig Bertilsson, a local politician in Bengtsfors for the Moderate Party, told SVT reporters, “Costs in municipalities that have received new arrivals have continued to be substantial even when government revenues have stopped. This creates a large negative hole in the municipal cash register.”

The municipality of Hässelholm, after taking in nearly 3,000 migrants in just three years, also faces financial ruin as up to 80 percent of migrants taken in still remain on welfare.

The municipality of Filipstad, a Swedish municipality that took in one of the highest numbers of migrants per capita, stated that they were facing a financial crisis as productive native Swedes continue to flee the city while financial assistance needs have tripled due to the influx of welfare-dependent migrants.

Columbia University Professor: “Sweden in a demographic experiment of historical dimensions”

According to professor Sheri Berman, Sweden is currently in the middle of a monumental demographic and cultural transformation as a result of mass migration that could very well cause the society to unravel.

Sheri Berman, a professor of Political Science at Columbia University who has studied and written extensively on Swedish society since the 1980s, says that Nordic country is currently experiencing a societal transformation the likes of which the world has never seen before.

During a recent appearance at the Gothenburg Book Fair, Berman told reporters from Svenska Dagbladet, “Today, your society looks dramatically different. It is a completely different country. The demographic change that Sweden has undergone in recent years is quite incredible.”

“To think that this kind of change could happen without any problems is unhistorical. It is a demographic experiment of historical dimensions,” Berman added.

For Berman, the utter destruction of Swedish cultural and ethnic homogeneity could very well threaten democracy as a sizeable portion of native Swedes will inevitably struggle to preserve their cultural and ethnic identity.

It’s clear that this already beginning to take place in Swedish society today.

“There is no question that the more homogeneous a society is, the easier it will be. The groups are fewer and the gaps are closer, and it is easier to create a sense of social solidarity,” she said.

“It’s hard to compromise on identity, and it makes people more intolerant because it puts them in a defensive position. Identity politics is not good for the left, and it is not good for democracy.”

“The French Revolution may be regarded as the starting point for democracy in Europe, but it took 150 years for it to actually arrive. Most people forget how long and difficult that journey was, and how many democracies have fallen along the way.”

Sheri Berman, in her scholarship, deals with issues like democracy, populism, the history of the left, and European politics for both scholarly and non-scholarly publications. It should be known that she has a clear leftist bias.

Nigerian death cult is forcing women into prostitution in Europe

In Sweden’s two largest cities, the Nigerian mafia Black Ax – a group well-known for performing dark occult rights and rituals – is forcing women into prostitution and selling drugs as a way to help finance their operations.

Since last summer, the African organized criminal group has frequently been the focus of Swedish media after it established itself as a strong force in both Stockholm and Gothenburg. The organization has been known to use voodoo, torture, black magic, and other bizarre occult rituals to scare its victims into submission, SVT reports.

The vulnerable women who have been forced into the sex trade by the group have testified about being tortured and how they are blackmailed into prostitution.

In a recent piece, GT described the group as a “death cult that kills, kidnaps, fights with machetes, and blackmails using black magic.”

In addition to illegal sex trafficking, the organization is also said to be involved in large-scale drugging smuggling and trafficking.

“We have evidence that there are people living in Gothenburg who belong to the Black Ax. It is people who control and organize both drug smuggling and other crimes,” said Pär Eriksson, an investigator at the Customs Crime Unit in Gothenburg.

Exactly how many women have been forced into prostitution by the cult is unclear, but the figure is said to be ‘large’.

“Something that applies to the vast majority of women we have received from Nigeria is that they have got a curse on them that makes them very afraid to leave the human trafficking,” said Andrea, an operations manager for Talita – an organization that assists women to leave prostitution.

“Some have had knife scars on the body, and been subjected to torture,” Andrea added.

Currently, there is a large-scale drug case against several alleged members of Black Ax in Gothenburg. Despite the case, the Customs Crime Unit has said that the mafia continues to operate throughout the city.

Swedish Dystopia: Nearly one in four women are afraid to leave their homes at night

A new survey conducted by a government agency has revealed that nearly a quarter of Swedish women are afraid to leave their homes at night out of fear of being threatened or assaulted.

The survey showed that 15 percent of individuals aged 16 or older – at some time during the previous year – refrained from leaving their homes at night out of fear of being assaulted or threatened. Among women, the figure was nearly one in four.

Since its globalist regime decided to take in vast numbers of migrants from the third world, Sweden has become a particularly hellish place to live for native Europeans.

Sexual violence against women, gun violence, anti-white hate crimes, unemployment, bombings, and car fires have all risen dramatically since the migrant crisis began in 2015.

Just days ago, government statistics revealed that 90 percent of newly arrived migrants in Sweden are unemployed. Thanks to unfettered mass migration from the third world, Sweden now enjoys one of the highest unemployment rates in all of Europe – something that would have been unthinkable years ago.

Gun violence is surging across Sweden as well. In 2018, the country saw a 20 percent increase in the number of victims being treated for gunshot wounds.

Public libraries, formerly tranquil sanctuaries of knowledge, have now become cesspools for sexual harassment, drug dealing, and violence.

Playgrounds have become unsafe for Swedish children to play at alone. A video recently surfaced which showed a group of migrants savagely beating a young Swedish boy on the school playground. No one came to his aid. The mainstream Swedish press didn’t even think to mention it.

Last year, Sweden saw bombings and explosions increase by 45 percent.

But at least the pepper spray economy is booming as women rush to buy self-defensive spray as means to protect themselves against migrant rapists.

After intense protests: Ancient history not removed from Swedish history classes

Last week, Voice of Europe could report that The Swedish Board of Education, Skolverket, planned to erase history elements older than the year 1700 from Swedish history classes. Now, after intense criticism, the Board withdrawals its plans.

“The Board of Education can observe that there is a lack of support for our suggestion and therefore, we can already now before the inquiry time has expired, establish that the Antiques will remain in the elementary school’s course plan for history, the authority states in a press release.

Last week, there were wild protests in the country against the Board’s suggestion to erase ancient history, not at least within academia, where Dick Harrison, Professor in History, called the intended plan of history removal “an intellectual suicide and f*** sick”.

The planned revised course plans from Skolverket would have erased Ancient Greece, The Swedish Great Power era in the 17th century, Rome, the dark ages and other culture-shaping phases of Europe’s past from Swedish teaching in upper grades.

Instead the idea was to focus more on the post-war era in the 20th century, including the rise of postmodernism. It took the Board less than five days to change its view after a massive social media storm.

However, the destiny of teachings about the Swedish Great Power era, when Sweden ruled the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea, is yet to be decided.

Peter Sweden

Tonight a church was bombed in Sweden.
The very same church has been the target of 3 bombings the last year.
This seems to be some kind of targeted anti-Christian hate crime.
Yet you heard nothing about it on international media.
For the third time this year this Syrian Orthodox church in Sweden was bombed in Sweden. From the media , no words. Peter Sweden is keeping us posted.

The second bombing was in June.
Church BOMBING in Sweden. Anti-Christian Hate Crime?
Early Friday morning there was an explosion near the St. Afrem church in Swedish city Geneta. This is the second time the place has been bombed, the previous attack happened in September last year. No-one was arrested in connection with the previous attack.

The church is a Syrian Orthodox church. The building that was targeted is the party rooms owned by the church, and are located nearby the church itself.

“Because this is the second time it happens, it appears to be a motive against the church, but it is hard to know for sure” says Zakay Cicek, responsible for security at the church to Expressen.

“We are also glad that the explosion didn’t happen during worship” he adds.

The explosion caused material damage to the building, but thankfully no-one was injured in the attack.

There has been barely any reports of this bombing in international media, despite that this could potentially be a hate crime against Christians.

This is the sixth bombing in Sweden this week. Previously 25 people were injured after a massive bomb at apartments in Linköping. There has also been three bombings in Malmö, and one bombing in Gränby this week.

Anti-Christian hate crime?

Certainly not.
The perpetrators are only practicing their religion as per Islamic Law.
Doing Allah's work.
Where is the crime in following one's religion? :clueless:

Sweden: Nigerian occult mafia spreading across the country, police say

A West African criminal network that’s known for human trafficking, drug running, fraud, and using bizarre occult rituals and torture to brainwash prostitutes is spreading throughout Sweden.

Police fear that Black Ax, an international criminal organization based out of Nigeria, is beginning to gain a foothold in Uppsala after already establishing itself in cities like Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmö, SVT Nyheter reports.

“They are mainly involved in human trafficking,” says Uppsala police spokesperson, Jale Poljarevius.

“They are holding women hostage, and through voodoo, they are tricking them into believing they will end up badly if they leave the job. But they are also involved in selling cocaine and heroin,” Poljarevius added.

So far, Black Axe has put down roots in Italy, Canada, Sweden, and elsewhere in Europe.

Authorities in Sweden are worried that the introduction of another criminal network in an already crowded field could result in an uptick of violence. According to a report that was released earlier this month by Swedish police, at least 50 organized gangs are operating in the city of Stockholm – up from 39 in 2015.

“You can only speculate on that, but it’s not that the gangs will say, ‘Oh, here comes Black Ax – welcome into the game’ – it’s pretty crowded already,” Poljarevius said

“There is a lot of cocaine but not so many users, so the market is quite saturated. It would lead to violence rather than cooperation,” he added.

Earlier this month, Voice of Europe reported on Black Axe’s use of voodoo, torture, black magic, and other strange rituals to scare women into prostituting themselves for the organization.

Sweden: Preschool imposes vegetarian menu on students to “save the planet”

A school in Sweden has imposed vegetarianism on all of its students in a supposed attempt to help combat climate change.

The radical policy has been implemented at the Gitarren Preschool in Umeå and represents the first attempt by a municipal school to eliminate meat on the food menus. All meals served at the preschool will be entirely meatless, and students will not be given the choice to opt-out of the program, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

When the program begins in about two weeks, breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be entirely vegetarian, and those who would like to order meat will not be able to. No exceptions will be made.

Teachers claim that the school has only received positive feedback from parents and children.

Markus Sandström, a teacher at Gitarren Preschool, says: “There have only been positive reactions and many are grateful.”

“We believe and hope that this can become permanent. So this is the idea, but it felt a bit drastic to go all out with it right away. We must evaluate properly first,” Sandström added.

The school has hired a dietician to oversee the rollout of the new menu and to make sure all the children, aged between one and six, are receiving adequate nutrition from the meatless diet.

Despite claiming that all reactions to the new program have so far been positive, Sandström says that he is well aware that the program could be controversial.

“We want to be clear that there is nothing political about this. This is something we do because we think it will have a positive climate impact,” Sandström.

Sweden is at the forefront of imposing climate change ideology onto its population. In September, a Swedish professor suggested that people should begin to think about eating human flesh as a substitute for animal meat to combat climate change.

“Sweden is headed for a civil war”

The former CEO of Scania, a major trucking company in Sweden, has warned that the country could be headed towards a civil war due to unchecked mass immigration from alien cultures.

During an interview with Swebbtv, Leif Östling, the former CEO of Scania and acting chairman of the board of Södertälje Science park said that the mass arrival of migrants from alien cultures who failed to integrate into Swedish society has created a potentially violent situation, Fria Tider reports.

“We have taken in far too many people from outside, we have done that. What to remember is that we have taken in people from the Middle East and Africa and they live in a society that we left about 100 years ago. It is their feeling and perception of what a society is like.”

Sexual assaults, gang violence, explosions, organized crime, and unemployment are all at levels previously not seen before in Sweden. Unfortunately, these problems have only reared their ugly heads following the mass importation of Middle Eastern and North African immigrants.

“We’ve taken in far too many people from outside. And we have. Those who come from the Middle East and Africa live in a society that we left almost a hundred years ago,” Östling said.

In the interview, the former CEO of Scania also suggests that the military, at some point, could be required to quell civil unrest in migrant enclaves.

Östling mentions his experience with migrant integration in the workplace during his time as CEO of Scania, where close to 90 of the 100 Somali immigrants who were hired either left or were fired because they were unable to fulfill their duties or cooperate with co-workers.

For Östling, in order for migrants to properly integrate into, and begin to cope with Swedish society, a monumental “knowledge transfer” is needed, and that’s something that could take a generation to achieve.

Although Östling hopes that Sweden’s deep-seated issues can be resolved in a decade, he believes that if they’re not, civil war could be the end result.

Bomb attacks are now a normal part of Swedish life'

Why are there so many bomb attacks in Sweden?

One night last week, explosions took place in three different locations in and around Stockholm. There were no injuries this time, just the usual shattered windows, scattered debris and shocked people woken by the blast.

The police bomb squad was already on its way to the first explosion in the district of Vaxholm when it had to turn around and prioritise the detonation at a residential building in the more densely populated city centre. Residents whose doors had been deformed by the shock wave had to be rescued. The third target (seemingly unrelated) was a facility belonging to a Syriac Orthodox church, which had already been bombed twice in the past year.

‘Normalisation’ is a term that we have come to associate with domestic violence: the victim begins to think of abuse as a part of everyday life. Explosions have become so normalised in Sweden that SVT, Sweden’s equivalent of the BBC, did not even mention the three explosions in the country’s capital on its national news programme that evening. Instead, the main domestic story was the purported censorship of ‘big female bodies’ on Instagram. Apparently, we mustn’t be referred to as ‘women’ any more, but ‘female bodies’, lest anyone’s gender be assumed. The explosions were left to the local news.

To understand how Sweden arrived at this degree of normalisation, consider the statistics: between January and June this year, more than 100 explosions were reported in the country, up from about 70 in the same period last year. A total of more than 160 suspected attacks with explosives were reported last year. There are no comparable figures available for earlier years because it’s such a recent phenomenon. Until recently no one would have thought of adding a column on bombings to the national Swedish crime statistics.

Wilhelm Agrell, professor of intelligence analysis at Lund University, has warned that the situation has become so dire that the integrity of the Swedish state is in jeopardy. ‘The state’s monopoly on violence, the actual token of a sovereign government, has been hollowed out bit by bit and no longer exists,’ he wrote a few weeks ago. ‘The armed criminal violence is having effects that are increasingly similar to those of terrorism.’

A new report from the Swedish Defence University warns that clan structures in some immigrant areas are putting the Swedish justice system under ‘severe stress’. In these parallel societies, the Swedish state is weak, witness intimidation is systematic and ordinary citizens are pressured to submit to clan rule.

Sweden’s gangs, which mainly operate out of the country’s socioeconomically weak immigrant neighbourhoods, do not only use explosives to assert their dominance. Sweden had 45 fatal shootings in so-called criminal environments last year — a tenfold increase in one generation.

By contrast, Norway has fewer than three such shootings a year. According to the newspaper Dagens Nyheter, nine out of ten perpetrators of Sweden’s gang shootings are either first- or second-generation immigrants. The country has gone from having among the lowest rates of violent crime in western Europe to one of the highest. When it comes to bombings, no other developed country in the world which is not at war has experienced anything like Sweden’s epidemic.

At first, it was argued that these are just wars between gangs: awful, but avoidable if you just steer clear. But the bombings have now increased to such an extent that it’s impossible to ignore the collateral damage. The biggest blast so far, which took place in the university town of Linköping in June, demolished two residential buildings and damaged more than 250 apartments. A police spokesman called it a ‘miracle’ that no one was severely injured.

A bombing in the university town of Lund in September left a female student with severe facial injuries. She was passing by a shop on her way home after a night out when an explosive device detonated. Witnesses saw people jumping out of windows. Just weeks before, a young woman was murdered in an affluent neighbourhood in Malmö, in an attack which police believe was aimed at her boyfriend. Karolin Hakim, a doctor, was carrying her young child when she was gunned down. As she was lying on the ground, the shooter put a bullet in her head. Her baby is now in a government protection programme.

As inured as Sweden has become to gang violence, the country was shaken by this cold-blooded murder of a mother with a baby in her arms. Justice Minister Morgan Johansson declared on Twitter that the state would chase Ms Hakim’s killer ‘to the ends of the earth’. But gang violence has severely strained police resources. A month after the murder, more than a hundred witnesses are yet to be heard. So much for chasing anyone to the ends of the earth: there weren’t even enough police to knock on doors around Malmö.

Only days after the murder of Karolin Hakim, another young woman fell victim to the gang wars. Eighteen-year-old Ndella Jack was killed as someone fired an automatic weapon into her flat in western Stockholm, probably aiming for her husband, a well-known figure in Stockholm’s gang scene. Less than a week after the murder, associates of Ms Jack’s husband were lured to a middle-class suburb of Stockholm, where they had been promised information about her killer. Shots were fired, missing the targets and hitting instead a taxi driver and a resident in a nearby building. One victim, also a university student, lost his sight in an eye after it was hit by a bullet.

When to draw a line? The Swedish government — a coalition between Social Democrats and Greens with the support of the Left, Liberal and Centre parties — presented a long list of new policies this summer intended to curb gang violence. Its focus has clearly shifted to repressive measures, such as more effective laws to permit wire tappings, search warrants and CCTV surveillance. No one wants to be reminded of Sweden’s failed attempt at an ‘amnesty for explosives’ which was introduced at the end of last year, and which meant that those in possession of explosives could hand them in without facing prosecution. (Sweden’s police stations were plastered with posters warning citizens not to bring their explosives into just any police stations, only the designated ones.)

Three years ago, when the migration crisis was at its peak, Sweden started identity checks on the Oresund bridge with Denmark in the hope of stemming the influx of migrants. Now the Danes are starting to worry too. After two recent bombings in Copenhagen, both linked to gangs in the south of Sweden, the Danish government has declared that it will introduce checks at the border next month. Two Swedish nationals are being held in relation to a bombing outside the Danish tax agency.

It’s tough for everyone to come to terms with the new reality. Gang violence is intimately tied to the issue of immigration and failed integration, so those who highlight the problem have often been smeared as bigots. Only a few years ago Sweden’s leading daily, liberal Dagens Nyheter, came up with the phrase ‘safety deniers’, which it compared to looney climate deniers. The government has invested in a PR campaign for the ‘image of Sweden’ — but every grenade attack makes it trickier.

After a bombing in Malmö this summer which forced families with children to flee through their balconies, an eight-year-old girl was approached by the newspaper Sydsvenskan. ‘I don’t want it to be like this, I want it to be calm. I don’t want any bombs here,’ she said.

Sweden: ‘Homemade black powder bomb’ discovered at shopping mall

Bomb technicians had to be called out to a shopping mall in Kristianstad late Monday evening after shoppers discovered a homemade explosive device. The incident is just the latest in a long line of recent incidents involving bombs in Sweden.

Police discovered the bomb outside of the C4 Shopping Mall at around 21:15 pm, after responding to reports that a suspicious object had been seen in the area, Kristianstadsbladet reports. The national bomb squad was then summoned to the scene to take over the situation.

“They came to the scene and disarm a small explosive charge,” said Peter Frostlund, the lead investigator at the Kristianstad police. Frostlund described the explosive device as a “homemade black powder bomb”.

Kristianstadsbladet, who has reviewed several photos of the explosive, mentioned that its shape was similar to a bottle.’

So far, no information is available on what damage the ‘black powder bomb’ could have caused, police spokesman Robert Loeffel stated. No suspects have been identified either.

In recent years, Sweden has seen an unprecedented rise in bombing incidents.

In the last two months alone, Sweden’s national bomb squad has been called to thirty separate incidents involving bombs. And, so far this year, approximately 100 bombing incidents have been reported, more than twice the number of blasts reported in the same time period in 2018, the Guardian reports.

Sweden: 25 Percent of people named ‘Ali’ have a criminal record

Official figures from Statistics Sweden and a legal database have revealed that nearly a quarter of individuals named ‘Ali’ who live in Sweden have a criminal record, a new report from Samhällsnytt has revealed.

A quick search in Statistics Sweden’s database revealed that 40,790 people with the name Ali as their first or surname are currently living in Sweden. Another search in Lexbase – a website and database that allows users to perform searches on people and companies who’ve been the subject of criminal trials – for the name Ali, rendered 9,742 hits.

The data clearly reveals that nearly a quarter (24 percent) of those living in Sweden with the name Ali have criminal convictions.

In their investigative research, Samhällsnytt discovered similar results for other Islamic names.

For example, 26,867 people by the name of Ahmed are listed in Statistics Sweden’s database. A quick search for the name Ahmed in Lexbase yielded 4,944 hits, meaning that nearly one in four people with the name Ahmed living in Sweden have criminal records.

Similarly, for the name Murad, 1,315 are listed as living in Sweden by Statistics Sweden. Of that number, 274 are present in Lexbase, meaning 21 percent have criminal convictions.

Because the Swedish government abolished the practice of recording the ethnicity of convicted criminals after 2005, it’s been incredibly difficult to map who’s committing what crimes.

In a 2005 study, the very last of its kind, figures revealed that foreign-born men were five times as likely to be suspected of sex crimes than native-born Swedes.

Since then, many independent studies have been carried out which have elucidated that non-native Swedes commit crimes at drastically higher rates than native Swedes.

Sweden: Teen’s ear cut off during gang robbery

A young man’s ear was partially severed when he was viciously beaten and robbed by a gang of attackers in Gothenburg last week.

The 18-year-old victim was ambushed by ten men in a parking garage in the Landala district of Gothenburg around 11 pm on Tuesday. According to police spokesman Morten Gunneng, the victim was beaten and stripped of “everything but his underwear”, Swedish newspaper Expressen reports.

Apart from having his ear severed, the victim is said to have suffered additional injuries from being punched and kicked by the group of assailants.

“There was a serious slash in the ear,” Gunneng said.

After arriving at the scene of the crime, police collected the victim and drove him to the emergency room themselves.

“We drove him to hospital,” Gunneng said. “We skipped an ambulance because we were so close.”

“The robbery definitely stands out. It is uglier than the usual robbery, partly with the number of perpetrators but also because of the entire course of events,” Gunneng said.

In the hours after the attack, police patrols combed the surrounding area next to where the brutal crime had taken place. So far, none of the assailants have been identified or apprehended by police.

The investigation is ongoing.
