Sweden: New trend sees robbers strip victims naked

A new trend in Sweden that has seen robbery victims stripped naked continued last Wednesday as one man was robbed of everything he had, including his clothes, in the city of Uppsala.

This tactic was brought to the attention of the public last week after the Gothenburg Police Department reported that young criminals were employing the degrading method as a way to humiliate their victims, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

Fortunately, not long after the man from Uppsala was robbed, police were able to track down the three perpetrators at a railway station in Bålsta. The three were reportedly aged between 15 and 21. After being arrested, prosecutors released the youngest suspect at around 1 am the following morning.

The same day, another young man had one of his ears cut off during a robbery in Gothenburg, local newspaper Goteborgs Posten reported.

The 18-year-old victim had his ear partially or complete severed by a gang of ‘youths’ who he said robbed him of everything except his underwear.

According to local investigators, the incident occurred on Tuesday night at around 11 pm, in the central Gothenburg district of Landala and saw the teenage kid brutally attacked by a gang of about ten people.

The teenage victim was transported to the hospital by police. So far, no arrests have been made in connection with the case.

This summer, Voice of Europe reported on the growing drug use, violence, and crime that continues to plague Gothenburg.

National Populism Rising: Sweden Democrats most popular party in the country

A new poll has revealed that the national populist Sweden Democrats are the most popular party in the country, with nearly one in four voters saying that they would cast their ballot for the party if elections were held today.

The survey, conducted by Swedish polling company Demoskop, showed the right-wing populist party polling just under a quarter of Swedish voters, at 24.2 percent. This, compared to 22.2 percent for the ruling Social Democrats, who in 2018 had their worst electoral performance ever, garnering just 28 percent of the vote, Swedish daily tabloid Aftonbladet reports.

The news comes nine years after the Sweden Democrats first entered the Riksdag, Sweden’s parliament.

“I’m not surprised,” Jimmie Åkesson, the leader of the Sweden Democrats, told the newspaper.

For Åkesson, the news marks the end of the political hegemony that the Social Democrats – the party who inaugurated Sweden’s suicidal, pro-mass migration policy – enjoyed since the 1930s.

Åkesson added that the poll’s results cemented his party as the true opposition to the ruling Social Democrat party.

“I have long argued that we would become the biggest party sooner or later. Over the years, we have consistently talked about gang crime, escalating insecurity, migration policy that has not worked, and integration policy that has made the situation worse. More and more people are experiencing these problems in their everyday lives and can relate to them. Then we become a credible alternative,” Åkesson explained.

Party secretary for the Social Democrats, Lena Rådström Baastad, blamed the party’s record losses on the recent spate of explosions and deadly shootings in Swedish cities.

“It’s a damn tough situation right now, so I’m not surprised when you consider what we’ve got against us, with gang murders, shootings, and explosions. It’s us, as the ruling party, who has to pay the price,” Baastad explained.

But even if the Sweden Democrats emerge as the largest party in the 2022 general election, whether they will enter government remains to be seen. Much like other right-wing populist parties throughout Europe, other so-called ‘conservative’ parties have refused to work with the Sweden Democrats in the past.

Swedish Minister of Justice on increased violent crime due to migration: “It doesn’t matter to me”

During a recent parliamentary debate, in response to the mention of increased group rape and personal robbery as a result of his party’s immigration policy, Social Democrat Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson whispered, “to me, it doesn’t matter”.

The debate took place on the floor of the Swedish parliament on October 24 and saw Sweden Democrat Party Secretary Richard Jomshof and the Social Democrat Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson trade blows Nyheter Idag reports.

During the debate, Jomshof reads several newspaper headlines aloud which include: “112 children have been robbed in Gothenburg’, ’50 youths hold Växjö city hostage’,” Misst group rape in Stockholm ”.

“This is just a small selection that clearly shows what the policy that Morgan Johansson represents – and what it has led to,” Jomshof states. To which the Social Democrat Justice Minister replied under his breath, “for me it doesn’t matter”.

Morgan Johansson’s words are indicative of his utter disdain for working and middle-class Swedes who’ve been forced to deal with the real-world consequences of his party’s reckless policies.

In the same debate, Johansson likened the Sweden Democrat’s party platform on immigration to anti-Semite fascists in the 1930s who were trying to “stop the Jewish import”.

Resorting to such a smear is a clear indication that Johansson and his Social Democrat party have lost the debate. Recent polls futher support this notion.

In fact, a new survey carried out by the Swedish polling company Demoskop placed the Sweden Democrats as the most popular party in the country, ahead of the Social Democrats by a few percentage points.

Left-Wing Journalist on Sweden’s Migrant Suburbs: “Everyone Knew it Would End in Disaster”

But she still supported mass immigration.

A left-wing journalist in Sweden who vehemently supported mass immigration has changed her tune, admitting that when it came to Sweden’s crime-ridden no-go areas, “everyone knew it would end in disaster.”

Aftonbladet’s Lena Mellin now acknowledges that Sweden’s attempt to integrate huge numbers of migrants from Africa and the Middle East has failed.

“All parties, with the possible exception of the Left Party and the Sweden Democrats [SD], who hardly affected the reality on this point, should be ashamed,” writes 64-year-old Mellin.

She accuses politicians of having “largely neglected the development in some of our suburbs” despite the fact that “everyone knew it would end in disaster.”

Numerous people pointed out the hypocrisy of Mellin admitting she knew integration was failing yet still refusing to abandon her support for mass immigration.

“Incredible! Lena Mellin, of all journalists one of the foremost advocates for mass immigration and multiculturalism, one of the worst SD-haters, claims that ‘one has known for years’ that it would go to hell,” tweeted Ted Ekeroth.

“For more than a decade Sweden’s ruling class — including political leaders and the media — has denied that there are any problems in the country’s banlieues caused by the mass importation of Third World immigrants. Except for problems caused by those WAYCIST Swedes, of course,” writes the Gates of Vienna blog.

“Now it seems that the truth about cultural enrichment has become so blatant that it can no longer be denied. The response of the Swedish media establishment? “We knew all along that things would end badly; we just forgot to tell you.” And they blame the politicians.”

Sweden continues to experience huge problems with violent crime, shootings, explosions and grenade attacks, mostly as a result of turf warfare between rival migrant gangs.

Authorities in Malmo responded by inviting local gang leaders for pizza, while the Swedish government recently announced it would commit $175,000 to funding Drag Queen Story Time events where men dressed as women read and perform to children.

Swedish PM: No connection between mass migration and rising gang violence

Sweden’s left-wing Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has claimed that there’s absolutely no connection between mass migration into his country and rising gang violence.

Löfven’s comments came over the weekend on Swedish television. The Swedish PM argued that the problem of gang violence – which he admits the government ‘may have not seen coming’ – is quite real but that it’s a different kind than has been seen before, Nyheter Idag reports.

When asked by the host of the show if there was any connection between large numbers of foreigners pouring into the country in recent times and increasing gang violence, Löfven promptly rejected the idea, arguing instead that poverty and unemployment were the root cause.

“The segregation is because there is too low employment and too high unemployment in these areas. But that would have been the same regardless of who had lived there. If you put people born in Sweden under the same conditions, you would get the same result,” Löfven said.

The Social Democrat prime minister then pushed back even further, claiming that even without the 2015 migrant crisis, Sweden would be facing the same problem

“Because of the economic differences, the social injustices would have been the same,” he said.

Rising gang violence has become such a problem in Sweden that its Scandinavian neighbor to the south, recently introduced border checks on its border with Sweden.

In September, the Swedish newspaper Expressen published a survey carried out by Sydsvenskan newspaper which found that the overwhelming majority of suspects in shooting cases in Malmö, Sweden have migrant backgrounds.

The findings of Sydsvenskan’s survey mirror statistical findings from a similar investigation that was published by SVT in 2018 which found that that foreign man committed around 85 percent of the rapes in Sweden.

Sweden: Municipalities cut basic services to offset large cost of taking in migrants

Eight out of ten municipalities in Sweden will be forced to slash funds used to finance basic public services to offset the high cost of taking in large numbers of welfare-dependent migrants.

The survey found that 46 percent of municipalities reported having plans to slash disability services, while half said that they would be forced to make serious spending cuts in individual and family care to save money, SVT Nyheter reports.

Göran Eriksson, the city manager for the municipality of Bengstfors, told SVT that his municipality wouldn’t be able to manage the increasing costs of social service and welfare programs without help from the federal government.

Bengstfors, facing a 2.4 million budget deficit, hopes to decrease that deficit by slashing social services and maintenance costs.

“The situation is strained, and we now are forced to take some effort after the council has decided on a new budget for 2020,” said Eriksson.

“I think there are two reasons. We have been generous and received many new arrivals, but basically, it is also a demographic problem. We have an aging population and the municipality is shrinking.”

To reduce expenses, state organizations responsible for migrant integration will merge with those centered around welfare and the labor market. Funds allocated to subsidize student healthcare and preschools will also be slashed. Street light usage is to be reduced by 20 percent and snow plowing will only occur when larger amounts of snow are on the road.

In August, Voice of Europe reported that officials from Bengstfors had reached out to the federal government for financial aid because the municipality was facing financial ruin because it had taken in too many welfare-dependent migrant.

Stig Bertilsson, a local politician for the center-right Moderate Party, explained the problem to reporters from SVT, saying: “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.

“Sweden is full, many migrants need to go home” – leader Sweden Democrats says

“In order to be able to repair any damage that has already been done it is a necessity that asylum and family reuinification immigration come down to an absolute minimum”, Jimmie Åkesson, leader of the populist right-wing Sweden Democrats, said at the party’s conference.

“Simply put: There must be more immigrants returing home than new immigrants arriving. We must send out the signal that Sweden is full and will be so for the foreseeable future. It is a basic premise. If we fail to do so, the problems will only continue to grow, and the consequences will be even worse. And we must at the same time dare to make demands again. Requirements for self-sufficiency. … … but if you live in Sweden you must adapt. You must adapt to our country’s values, respect our standards, learn the language, learn about how our society works.You must understand that you have come to a new country … … and therefore you cannot expect to live the same way as in your home country.”

Åkesson also wrote a guest article in newspaper Aftonbladet where he said that “Mass immigration have seriously damaged Sweden”.

The SwedenDemocrats have gained popularity at a rate that is unseen in this country. From 5.7 percent in the 2010 election to over 20 percent in the lastes poll. They are now the largest party in Sweden in several polls. Meanwhile, the Social Democrats are at record low levels.

Stefan Löfvén, the prime minister, recently got a lot of criticism after he in a TV interview said that “mass migration have not made crimes increasing”. Even social democrat columnist Lena Mellin, in Aftonbladet, wrote that Löfvén was a disaster in the interview.

Meanwhile, the leader of the right wing party The Moderates said that Löfvén could have seen the negative development followed by mass immigration. He also said that his own party – The Moderates – were partly guilty in creating these problems.

The Sweden Democrats plan to be in the next Swedish government together with the Moderates and the Christian Democrats. But even if the Moderate party have apologized for their immigration policy they had when they governed the country between 2006 and 2014, many people still do not trust them. Things the Sweden Democrats first prosoped – like ban on hijabs in schools – now have been copied by some other parties.

Sweden: Anti-semitic incidents on the rise

Jews in Sweden are finding it increasingly difficult to be openly Jewish as new figures have revealed that anti-Semitic incidents have become more and more common in the country.

Figures published by the Swedish Crime Prevention Council (Brå) show the number of anti-Semitic crimes has increased from 182 in 2016 to 278 in 2018, an increase of more than 50 percent, Sveriges Radio reports.

A Jewish mother whose children attend Jewish Hillel School in Stockholm told Sveriges Radio that as a Jew it’s difficult to be oneself fully.

“It is very, very sad that it is so. And it is, perhaps, something that makes us sometimes think about moving to another country where it would be easier to be the one we are fully,” the woman added.

She declined to give her name because of the risk of threats.

Shari Tingman, Acting Group Chief and Preliminary Investigation Leader at Stockholm Police’s Democracy and Hate Crime Group, told the broadcaster that police need to make more of an effort to understand Jewish culture.

“If the police department cannot understand the culture, how should we be able to work with what is happening out there?” Tingman said.

Sweden isn’t the only European country to see a rise in anti-Semitic incidents.

Over the summer, a 25-year-old gay Jewish resident of Potsdam, Germany was attacked by two Syrians at a Potsdam train station.

In May, anti-Semitism commissioner of the German Federal Government, Felix Klein, warned against wearing a kippah in public in Germany.

“I cannot recommend Jews to wear the Kippa anytime anywhere in Germany. Unfortunately, I have to say so, ” Klein said.

Stockholm: Elderly Residents Kicked Out of Apartments to Make Way For Migrants

Dozens of elderly residents were forced to leave their apartments in an area of Stockholm after the block was closed, only to be re-opened again for migrants to replace them.

Residents at Dianagården were told they would have to leave because the toilets in the facility were 5cm too small to comply with regulations.

However, soon after the 48 apartments were emptied, they were filled with newly arrived migrants.

“It was later revealed that politicians planned that immigrants would instead move into the premises,” reports Fria Tider.

In 2015, Sweden accepted more refugees per capita than any other country, and despite worsening problems with sexual assaults, grenade attacks and violent crime, the inflow shows no sign of being seriously restricted.

A recent opinion poll found that the anti-mass migration Sweden Democrats are now the most popular party in Sweden. The Sweden Democrats would get 24.2% of the votes if an election was held today, beating the ruling Social Democrats.

Back in October, Leif Östling, former CEO of trucking company Scania, warned that Sweden is heading towards civil war due to uncontrolled mass immigration.

“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,” he said.

Swedish justice ministry manipulated crime statistics – study

Sweden’s Ministry of Justice pressured the country’s Crime Prevention Council to hide, manipulate, or ignore potentially embarrassing crime statistics, a university study has found.

Sweden’s Crime Prevention Council (Brå) has a difficult task. In a country where media outlets omit police-circulated descriptions of suspects’ ethnicity, and the government actively downplays the surge in gun crime and bombings in its immigrant ghettoes, Brå is charged with compiling factual, accurate crime statistics.

According to a study published by Linköping University this week, the government intervenes here too to downplay “politically sensitive” data.

Employees told the university researchers that their managers – acting on orders from the country’s Justice Ministry – instructed them to manipulate results on “hot potato” issues. Presumably, these results were ones that could embarrass the government, and likely dealt with issues of race or immigration.

One interviewee stated that “methodological deficiencies” was the reason given for the change.

Brå’s own statistics show an upsurge in lethal violence since 2014, particularly among criminals and in disadvantaged and immigrant neighborhoods. They also show a sharp rise in sexual violence, assaults, threats and robbery since 2015, when the country welcomed more than 160,000 refugees and migrants – more per capita than any other European country.

Yet the government would rather these statistics remained hidden. One Brå employee compiling a report on violent crime remarked that the government delayed its publication until after last year’s election, due to its “politically sensitive results.” The report in question was also seen as humiliating, as it directly contradicted an earlier report that used a different method to conclude that violent crime was decreasing.

When it was eventually published, the report was allegedly relegated to Brå’s website, and was not printed.

Many interviewees feel that rather the organization’s problems stem from its organization under the Ministry of Justice. Rather than working independently to advise policymakers, they feel that they are working to advance their agendas instead.

With gang crime and grenade attacks ongoing in Swedish cities, Justice Minister Morgan Johansson was the subject of a no-confidence vote called by the right-wing Sweden Democrats party last month. Johansson survived the motion, but unfiltered crime statistics have fueled Sweden’s opposition. If the Linköping University report is to be taken at face value, his ministry has every reason to stifle crime statistics.

Against this background, a number of Swedish industry leaders have sounded the alarm. Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson said in July that his company is struggling to attract foreign experts due to crime concerns, while Scania CEO Leif Östling warned in October that Sweden has “taken in far too many people from outside,” and predicted “internal wars” unless the government clamps down on immigration.

Meanwhile, the Sweden Democrats, who push a tough-on-crime, anti-immigration platform, have reached their highest ever level of public support. According to a Statistics Sweden poll published this month, the party scored 22.6 percent, making them the country’s second biggest party.

Sweden: The Wages Of Self-Loathing Is Civil War

by Tyler Durden

The Danes have put extra resources into controlling the country’s links to Sweden because of bombs going off in Denmark due to people coming from Sweden. The people from Sweden are Islamist criminals. The Swedish government reacted to the Danish move by calling the Danes Nazis. Swedish society has changed for the worse, and the Swedish people are aware of what they have lost.

All this is known, but what is interesting is that a former head of the Swedish truck-maker Scania, a Mr. Leif Ostling, has said Sweden is headed for civil war because of the problem of its violent migrants who have no inclination to integrate into Swedish society. As a successful businessman, his views can’t be dismissed as being from some sort of antisocial loon living in his mother’s basement.

This raises the question: how do you have a civil war in this day and age? Having a civil war is aspirational, but is it achievable?

The population of Sweden is now 10.1 million, of which 8% are of the Islamist persuasion. The first question is, who owns the guns, and how many are there?

This site says civilians in Sweden are estimated to hold 2,296,000 guns, legally and illegally, of which about half are rifles. There is a big hunting tradition in Sweden. As of the year 2011, licenced firearms per 100 head of population was 6.5, and registered guns per 100 people was 18.9. So the average gun-owner has three of them.

The Swedish government is thinking along the same lines. They are currently trying to restrict weapons use by hunters. Magazines and ammunition are to be registered with the police and be kept apart from the weapons.

The Islamist elements have most of the hand grenades in civilian possession, principally the M75 hand grenade from the former Yugoslavia. Hand grenade attacks in Sweden peaked at 40 in 2016. The Islamists also have more explosives on hand. In the first nine months of 2019, there were 97 explosions in Sweden. Even the BBC has noticed. A litany of horrors could be written about Sweden, with all the murders and rapes and knifings and so on, but just consider that there is an explosion just about every second day.

The defense forces in Sweden have 139,180 firearms, and the police a further 38,000.

All in all, there are plenty of guns to go round to have a civil war with. This won’t be a brutish affair conducted with knives and sticks.

But how will it play out? A t the moment, the Islamists attack police stations, control no-go areas and enclaves, and are not sufficiently discouraged from these activities by the police. Public opinion is becoming less tolerant of the situation. In terms of the politics, leftists won the last election, in September 2018, and the Social Democrats retained control of the government. Their main opposition is the Sweden Democrats, whom the prime minister has called “an extremist and racist party.” In a recent poll, the Social Democrats are at 22% support, and the Sweden Democrats are more popular at 24%.

A sign of the shift in public opinion is the fact that the leader of the Moderate Party, with 70 out of the 349 seats in the Swedish parliament, has apologized on Facebook to all those who had criticized the country’s immigration policies over the years. The shifting winds of public opinion will encourage a crackdown on the Islamist enclaves, which in turn enrages the Islamists, and they are likely to respond with more attacks on the police and other public institutions.

How we get to civil war is that the government reaction to the escalating violence is likely to lag too far behind events and public opinion. And then an officer in the armed forces will have his wife or daughter killed and lead his unit in taking over the parliament building. Nobody in the police force will stop him, because the police have been taking the brunt of the Islamist violence for decades.

The next phase will be the reaction of the lefties running Germany, France, and the European Union. The yellow vests have been protesting in France for over a year now. Early on, they were surprised to see European Union decals on French armored personnel0carriers. It seems that Macron and Merkel have conspired to create a French-German force to put down insurrections in Europe. To get to Sweden, this force would have to pass through Denmark, and the Danes are likely to stop them. If that fails, any armored column is unlikely to get across the Oresund Bridge that connects Denmark and Malmö in Sweden. The Swedes make good antitank weapons.

Yes, you can have a civil war in this day and age. With respect to Sweden, what can’t go on forever won’t. If the state does not maintain its monopoly on violence, the state ceases to exist.

People can have a short memory for trials and tribulations when they have been civilized and comfortable for a while. Across the border in Norway, the Norwegians had a bad time in WW2, with near starvation conditions. So in the 1950s, they built grain storage to last them at least a year, in the manner of Joseph’s advice to the Egyptian pharaoh. Two generations later, all the pain had been forgotten, and the grain silos were converted to student accommodations. The pain of Sweden’s coming civil war won’t be forgotten as quickly.

‘Role play’? Swedish schoolkids made to kneel in gender-segregated MUSLIM prayer & told to listen to Koran in Arabic

A Swedish school decided to familiarize its fifth-graders with Islamic worshipping by having a teacher recite Koranic verse to them and having them pray facing Mecca, in a bizarre set-up the educators called “role play.”

An offbeat “religion lesson” was taught at the Bjurbäck school situated in the south of Sweden, according to Samhallsnytt news outlet. An outraged parent said pupils were told to face the Kaaba and kneel on prayer mats, while the whole class was divided by gender, with girls forced to the back of the room.

His daughters “did not even want to be there because they could not understand a word of what the teacher read from the Koran in Arabic,” the man, called Markus, revealed. After the “prayer,” the pupils “would dance to Arabic music and eat Arabic cake” in something used to replicate Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim festivities marking the end of compulsory fasting.

Local authorities confirmed the report, with an education official in Emmaboda – a serene southern county where the school is located – telling the news outlet that the class did take place.

When confronted by angry parents, the school management defended the activity, referring to it as “role play.” But the awkward explanation didn’t sit well with Markus who wants the school to apologize and its principal to be suspended.

“Calling this a role play is not OK as it hits me as a parent,” he told the paper. “It’s me, not the school, that raises my children ... they go there to learn things that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.”

The story sparked uproar on social media.

“Of course, the continuation of it will be Muslim students learning the Lord’s Prayer and attending a Catholic mass,” one person suggested.

“Forcing minors into submission is disastrous. One should choose a religion on their own,” another one wrote.

However, the Emmaboda municipality tried to cool down tempers, saying that, while “his lesson was about Islam and Muslim rituals and traditions,” there are other classes teaching about other world religions.

The class in question involved “so-called role-play pedagogy where the students have different roles in order to gain a better understanding” of the subject, it explained. During the lesson, no student expressed concern or felt insecure, the authorities said, adding that taking part in the role play wasn’t compulsory.

A similar scandal broke out in neighboring Denmark this summer, when a boy of African descent was filmed teaching his third-grade classmates a daily prayer ritual, with the exercise ending with the class kneeling and chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ (Allah is great). The school, however, defended the teaching methods used to integrate children of different cultures.

Swedish Govt Accused of Reclassifying Explosions to Distort Actual Figures

Authorities in Sweden have been accused of mislabelling explosions and bombings and classifying incidents as “damage” in order to distort the true extent of explosions across the country.

Swedish Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson took to Twitter on Thursday to state that bombings in the multicultural city of Malmö had decreased by 40 per cent in the last two years despite other statistics showing a large rise in bombings across the country.

But according to the alternative news website Samhallsnytt, several explosive incidents in Malmö over 2019 were classified by police as injuries or simply as damage.

In January, an explosive that was detonated between two taxis in the city was declared to be “damage,” while in April an explosion at a school was logged as an “injury.”

An explosion at a residential building in June was also considered an “injury.” Broadcaster SVT reported that the explosion was not counted on their list of 2019 explosions because the damage caused by the blast was too minor.

Some Swedes reacted to Johansson’s Tweet with scepticism, including user Pater Ohman who accused Johansson of selecting a small portion of statistics on purpose rather than addressing the national trend.

He said the minister was sweeping the situation “under the carpet.”

The accusations of manipulating statistics come only weeks after employees of the Swedish Crime Prevention Council (Brå) claimed they had been pressured by members of management to manipulate crime figures for political reasons.

“If results were not liked, then there was censorship, organisation of results, dimming of results, and highlighting other parts of a study that were not as sensitive or could show a positive result,” an employee told researchers at Linköping University.

In 2016 soon after the height of the 2015 migrant crisis, Varg Gyllandar of the Stockholm Police claimed that officers practised a form of self-censorship when it came to migrant sex attacks at music festivals.

“We didn’t cover up, of course we didn’t. But we didn’t tell. And there are so many things we don’t tell because we have so much information, so many things going on,” Gyllandar revealed.

“Well, I think we all carry a bit of self-censorship; that we are afraid of discussing these question because you can appear like a racist. This is a cultural thing for us. We do go there… that’s maybe a problem,” he added.

Syrian-born Swedish politician arrested on suspicion of smuggling migrants after being CAUGHT ON TAPE saying he does it for money

A Syrian-born Swedish politician has been arrested on suspicion of human trafficking after a damning hidden-camera interview published in October showed him bragging about smuggling people into the country for money.
Former Ljungby politician Rashad Alasaad, 27, was arrested by ten undercover police officers during a raid at his home on Wednesday morning.

“The person was taken for questioning and subsequently arrested. He is entitled to a public defender and that is being arranged,” said police spokesman Ewa-Gun Westford.

Swedish paper Expressen recorded Alasaad with a hidden camera joking about how he had smuggled several people into Sweden for money, after entering the country along the smuggling route from Turkey, and offering to help smuggle a child from Greece to Sweden.

“Yes, I got my whole family out. I got a lot of people out. It’s not difficult at all,” Alasaad said on camera. “Let me tell you why I’m doing it. To be honest, the main reason is money. I want money.”

Sweden’s Border Police launched an initial inquiry after the video was made public. He initially denied the allegations but when confronted about a suspected price list, 20,000 Swedish krona (approximately €1,900) per child and 30,000 krona (€2,860) per adult, Alasaad admitted the list was authentic.

He also reportedly ran Facebook ads under a fake name offering to smuggle migrants from Greece to Sweden using borrowed passports.

Only those who are in Greece. Syrian passports with Swedish residence permit for sale. Only for those who look like passport holders,” he allegedly wrote on Facebook, though he’d previously flatly denied the allegations.

Alasaad left office shortly after the video revelations came to light, having joined the local council after the 2018 elections, running with for the ruling Social Democratic party.

He reportedly also worked for Sweden’s social security and tax agencies, as well as for the state pension fund, before running for office in the local council.

The full extent of his alleged human trafficking, if any, has yet to be determined.

Swedes Vote Climate Policy Biggest Waste of Tax Payer Money in 2019

The Swedish public has voted that climate change spending has been the biggest waste of taxpayer money in 2019, according to a poll by the Swedish Taxpayers’ Association.

The Taxpayers’ Association released the results of their annual wasteful spending poll earlier this week, declaring that climate policy had been the biggest waste of money, largely due to the fact that despite the spending, emissions in Sweden had actually slightly increased.

In 2014, the Swedish national government spent 5.2 billion Swedish krona (£419 million/$547 million), a number that has more than doubled to 12.6 billion krona (£1 billion/$1.3 billion) for the planned 2020 budget.

“The government has more than doubled the appropriations for climate policy, but despite this, emissions no longer decrease. In 2018, emissions even increased. That is why climate policy has been voted the worst waste of the year,” Johan Gustafsson, Waste Ombudsman at the Taxpayers’ Association, said.

“Too much tax money is wasted without benefit to those who pay. It is no less important that money has an effect when it is invested in something that is important — rather the opposite,” he added.

In second place in the poll was a project from the artists’ commission that saw over a million krona donated to a project focused on art for earthworms and fungi.

Mats Caldeborg and wife Katrin Zackrisson Caldeborg were behind the project and told newspaper Expressen: “Art for birds, bumblebees, beetles, worms, and fungi is a project that wants to turn upside down in our habitual way of seeing and understanding the world. Here, nature’s smaller inhabitants are not those depicted, but themselves, in their own right, recipients of the art.”

The wasteful spending poll results come as many Swedish municipal governments face financial hardship or even bankruptcy due to a lack of money to support recently arrived migrants who have largely remained out of the labour force.

An estimated 90 per cent of migrants who came to the country during the height of the 2015 migrant crisis and received permanent residency are unemployed.

Why work when you can get everything for free?

What happens when the money runs out?
