Afghan Asylum-Seeker “Youth” Charged With Attempted Murder For A Knife Attack On A Swedish Police Officer

A culture-enriching “youth” from Afghanistan.

“We do not know anything about any underlying motive”, said prosecutor.

A man faces trial over a knife attack on a police officer in central Stockholm last year.

Police officer Ted Eriksson was patrolling the Södermalm district of southern Stockholm on August 31st when a man ran up to him from behind and stabbed him in the neck with a knife. The officer received minor injuries and was able to leave hospital the same day.

A suspect was seized immediately after the attack, which happened near the Björns Trädgård subway exit at Medborgarplatsen, by another officer who took up the chase.

The man has now been formally charged with attempted murder.

He said at the time that he was 17, but a medical age assessment test has indicated that he was older than 18, according to the prosecutor, who will therefore urge the court to try him as an adult.

He also faces charges relating to assault on August 25th and 29th, as well as making threats against other pupils at a senior high school in Tyresö, southern Stockholm.

Crimes in high school

In addition to the assassination attempt, the man is charged with assault and unlawful threats on August 25, as well as assault on August 29. The events had taken place at Tyresö Gymnasium, against two different students at the school.

“He had begun school at Tyresö high school a few days before. I have no indication that he has been expelled from school; I do not know exactly what action was taken by the school,” said the police prosecutor Daniel Suneson. GatesOfVienna

Protests In Sweden After Three Vicious Rapes In One Month

Sweden has the highest rape rate in Europe.   Disturbingly almost half of the rape victims are children.  Rapes in Sweden have soared since the country started to take in large numbers of Muslim migrants and refugees.  Has Sweden figured out the problem?

Protest after three vicious rapes of teenagers in a month.

“We have a government that claims to be feminist, but at the same time does not act, when the legal system signals that women’s bodies are public property,” said medical student Camilla Lundgren who organized the protest.

However, it was the news of a Swedish court releasing three men, accused of raping a woman in the Stockholm suburb of Fittja in 2016, that prompted Lundgren to call on local residents to join the demonstration. On Tuesday, the court acquitted all five defendants in the case due to insufficient evidence.

I was not surprised, but at the same time, I’m totally disturbed. It feels hopeless. It’s like our politicians do not think women are human,” Lundgren said of the decision.  RT

Yesterday’s protest, filmed by a participant, saw demonstrators demand police protection, tougher punishment and that the government step in and push through proposed legislation on consent…

The protesters in Malmo outlined a series of demands on the Swedish government: tougher punishment for rapes, a Minster of Justice with competence in sexual violence issues and a National Police Commissioner ‘who cares about women’. DailyMail

The demonstrators were also protesting police advice that women stay indoors or walk in pairs,  the police retracted their safety advice to women.

Hundreds of protesters raged against Swedish police Tuesday after the nation’s law enforcement warned women to “stay inside or walk in pairs” to avoid the slew of gang rapes that have plagued the country this fall.

Police issued the warning Sunday after a 17-year-old was gang-raped early Saturday morning in Malmo, Sweden, by an unknown number of attackers, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday. The first of the series of rapes occurred on Nov. 4, followed by another just a week later. Malmo police have opened a preliminary investigation into the rape, and they have defended their comment, claiming their words are being taken out of context.

“It’s about common sense. We are not warning people not to be outside, but to think twice and maybe not walk alone late at night and instead go with others or take a taxi,” said Anders Nilsson, a Malmo police officer.

Despite their defense, however, Malmo police yielded to protesters Tuesday and retracted the statement.  DailyCaller

No caution necessary – no common sense needed

“My advice is to behave as usual and not act on fear,” said police spokesperson Mats Karlsson.

Sweden Forced To Raise Retirement Age To Pay For Influx Of Muslim Migrants

The Swedish citizens were sold the claim that Muslim migration was needed to replace an aging workforce.  The reality is Swedish workers will have to work longer to pay for Muslim migrants.

The increasing costs of population growth in Sweden, driven almost entirely mass migration, have forced the government to seriously consider raising the national retirement age to pay for the additional costs.

Swedish Socialist party Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson announced that the retirement age would likely be raised in the near future in order to offset increased welfare costs, Swedish newspaper Expressen reports.

“Looking at those who start working at 30, there should be opportunities to work longer than 65,” Andersson said.

The minister made her remarks following an economic report from the Local Authorities and County Council (SKL) released earlier this week. The report claimed that the welfare state would grow faster than revenue obtained through taxation due to the dramatic rise of Sweden’s population.

Due to the influx of migrants during the migrant crisis and Sweden’s growing birthrate, the population of the country has expanded faster than almost any other European country.

Welfare State Cost Increases  -Sweden’s welfare cost is increasing faster than its revenue.

The SKL study claims there is a 47 billion SEK (£4.1 billion) gap between current revenue and welfare state costs that will have to be made up either by tax increases or increasing the retirement age.

While migrants are increasing the cost of the Swedish welfare state in terms of added infrastructure and cost for services, many are unemployed and directly on welfare. A recent report showed that while the native Swedish unemployment rate was around 3.9 percent, it stood at 21.8 percent for Swedish residents from foreign backgrounds.

A 2016 report claimed that the one-year cost of the migrant crisis for the Swedish taxpayer could amount to as much as 600 billion Swedish Kronor (£48.3 billion), enough to pay for the national armed forces for the next 14 years.  Stockholm University associate professor Jan Tullberg made the calculations based on welfare and housing costs, education costs and other factors.  Breitbart

The Angel In The Sky: Skier Captures A Rare Sun Halo Over Mountains In Sweden

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”  Psalms 19:1 (NIV)

Stunning footage has captured the moment treated to the incredible sight of a rare ring of light surrounding the sun.

The atmospheric effect enveloped the low winter sun with a corona, known as a 22 degree halo.

They form as sunlight is refracted in millions of hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the sky.

The breathtaking clip was captured by a skier at the Vemdalen resort in central Sweden.

Ludvig Lundin shared the footage to Facebook, where over five million visitors to the site viewed the eye-catching distortion.

Some even compared the phenomenon to the appearance of an angel.

Among them was David D. Sterling, who said: ‘That looks like an image you would imagine seeing before angels begin forming or first light up in the sky of Jordan on Christmas.’

Megan Tenaya Birchell added: ‘These are the kind of things that helps you understand people believing in angels. DailyMail

German Christmas Markets: City Protects Pedestrians With Gift-Wrapped Car Barricades

Christmassy anti-terror barricades.

Cities across Germany are boosting security for Christmas market season, following the deadly truck rampage in Berlin last year. The city of Bochum put out massive car barricades – and then giftwrapped them.

Bochum authorities placed a string of 1.2 ton pellet bags in the downtown area to avert potential terror attacks ahead of the seasonal opening of the local Christmas market.

On Thursday morning, however, the bags took on a holiday look, with the city’s official marketing service turning them into novelty Christmas presents.

“For us it was very important to fit in those ugly barriers into the beautiful overall atmosphere,” said the head of Bochum Marketing Mario Schiefelbein.

The move surprised both local residents and the police, as the service reportedly giftwrapped up all of the 20 bags overnight without forewarning. dw.com

The Church Of Sweden’s New Handbook Says Masculine References To God, Such As “He” And “Lord” Should Be Scrapped So As To Be More “Inclusive”.

Making up their own religion.

In 2015, Bishop Eva Brune wanted to remove Christian Symbols from the Seamen’s Church in Stockholm’s eastern dockyards.  To make it more inviting to all the Bishop wanted to remove all symbols of Christianity, marking the direction of Mecca, and installing a Muslim prayer room.

The Church of Sweden has voted to adopt a controversial new handbook which says masculine references to God, such as “He” and “Lord” should be scrapped so as to be more “inclusive”.

Despite heavy criticism from organisations including Royal Swedish Academy, on Thursday the church approved the new handbook with a large majority.

The Church Handbook  — which was last updated in 1986  — sets out how services, baptisms, weddings and funerals should be conducted, in language, liturgy, theology and music, and is therefore central to the church’s activities.

According to local media, many priests have objected to directions in the new handbook regarding language, which have been added with the goal of making the church “more inclusive”.

This includes instructing clergy to refer to God in a gender-neutral fashion, without “unnecessarily” using the male pronoun “He”, or terms like “Lord”.

God should be referred to as “Mother” as well as “Father” in some prayers, according to guidelines in the manual, which gives the following as an example:

“God, Holy Trinity, Father and Mother, Son – Sister and Brother, and Spirit – Lifeguard and Inspirator, lead us to your depths of wealth, wisdom and knowledge”.

Inclusive

Sofia Camnerin, the deputy chair of Sweden’s Equmenia Church, defended “inclusive language” in the church, stating that the need for it “is based on an awareness of different types of discrimination and inequality in our society.”

“Referring to God as ‘Lord’ consolidates [gender] hierarchies and the subordination of women in a white, Western feminist context,” she argued in a blog.

“Liberation theologists, along with feminist and postcolonial theologians, have been crucial in identifying how legitimising hierarchies leads to violence and subordination,” she said.

But Priest Helena Edlund, who blasted the church as having shown “a total unwillingness to listen to criticism”, expressed concern over the new language guidelines.

“The risk is that we fail to notice the small changes and then gradually over time we find ourselves looking at drastic changes we never would have accepted if they were put to us immediately,” she told Världen Idag last year.

“Is it unlikely, for example, that in five years we will be praying ‘Our Mother Who is in Heaven …’ in our churches? A few years ago, this was called an impossibility, but the church handbook proposal makes it possible.”

Armed Police To Escort Joggers Of Oskarshamn In Sweden For Protection

It is not normal for joggers in a developed western country to be accompanied by armed police for their safety.

Residents of the Swedish city of Oskarshamn will now have the option to be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging.

Oskarshamn police inspector Peter Karlsson said the programme was designed to ease the insecurities of those who wish to go jogging after dark. Karlsson, who came up with the idea for the programme, said police would form jogging groups and all those who were interested in joining the officers were welcome, SVT reports.

“We will adjust the pace entirely to those who come,” Karlsson said, noting the officers would jog as well as walk with residents who wanted to join.

Karlsson said that he had heard of many residents feeling insecure in the city: “It does not happen so much here, but people are influenced by events around the world and feel unsafe when it’s dark.”  BreitBart

 

Hungary May Take In Iranian Christian Convert Woman Expelled From Sweden

Aideen Strandsson is an Iranian Christian facing deportation by Sweden back to certain danger in Iran.

Good for Hungary!

Hungary Prime Minister’s Office: “If she seeks help in Hungary, the Hungarian State is ready to recognise the girl from Iran as a refugee who the Swedish authorities intend to send back to the Islamic Republic despite the fact that her life would be in considerable danger on account of having converted to Christianity, Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén, who at present also performs the duties of Prime Minister due to the fact that Viktor Orbán is currently on leave, told the newspaper Magyar Idők.”

“He said: if Aideen Strandsson seeks asylum in Hungary, at the end of the procedure – which naturally also involves national security screening – she may expect a favourable ruling as Hungary does not send anyone back to a country where his or her life or physical well-being may be in danger.”

An Iranian Christian actress facing deportation from Sweden to Iran has been offered asylum by the Hungarian government.

CBN News was first to report that Sweden had rejected Aideen Strandsson’s appeal for asylum and turned her case over to Swedish border police for eventual deportation to Iran, where experts say Strandsson faced certain prison and rape, and possibly death.

Her deportation would be a clear violation of the Geneva Convention on Refugees.

The Hungarian government learned of her story and anounced on its official website that if Strandsson “seeks help in Hungary, the Hungarian State is ready to recognize the girl from Iran as a refugee…if Aideen Strandsson seeks asylum in Hungary, at the end of the procedure – which naturally also involves national security screening – she may expect a favorable ruling as Hungary does not send anyone back to a country where his or her life or physical well-being may be in danger.”

The government announcement added, “…(W)e provide help for genuine refugees, those whose lives are in direct danger on account of their religion, nationality or political affiliation. Taking in persecuted Christians is our moral and constitutional duty all at once.”  CBN

Sweden Shields ISIS Fighters, but Won’t Protect Christian Asylum Seeker

Aideen Strandsson is an Iranian Christian facing deportation by Sweden back to certain danger in Iran.

“They said to me, ‘It’s your personal life and it’s not our problem if you decided to become a Christian, and it’s your problem … I think about that dream I had in Iran, about Jesus and I still think, He is watching me … He will help me.” -Aideen Strandsson

The Iranian actress left Islam to become a Christian after having a dream about Jesus. She came to Sweden in 2014 on a work visa.

Aideen has been very public about her new faith, which means she faces prison, rape, and death if returned to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“It is really dangerous for me and I don’t know why immigration doesn’t believe that. I’m really in danger,” Aideen told CBN News.

Even though Sweden’s migration board says, on its own web page, that it will never deport asylum seekers to nations where they face danger, and doing so is a violation of the Geneva convention on refugees, the migration board rejected Aideen’s request for asylum and turned it over to border police for eventual deportation.

“The migration board information regarding Iranian prisons tells us that torture and rape is common and it is a breach of international law to subject any person to such treatment,” Swedish attorney Gabriel Donner said.

So many CBN viewers contacted the migration board after our story aired, that a migration board official contacted CBN News and told us, “…the fact that your readers write to us will not change the Migration Agency’s decision, nor can we change the court’s decision.”

“Her case has been appealed and processed by the Migration Agency and thereafter by the Swedish courts, which have also decided that she cannot be granted asylum,” Ulrika Langels of the Swedish Migration Board wrote.

CBN News has received many offers of help and even asylum for Aideen from other nations. But Strandsson cannot leave Sweden. Her Iranian passport has been taken away.

And she says her first choice is to remain in Sweden, if possible.

Strandsson and other Christian asylum seekers in Sweden face deportation at the same time that the Swedish government has given 150 protected identities to former ISIS fighters who have returned to Sweden so that they can find jobs.

There will be no such help for Aideen.  CBN

Sweden’s Security Service: We’ve Got 2,000 ISIS Sympathizers In This Country

Wow.

According to Anders Thornberg, the leader of Sweden’s security service, Säpo, there are now as many as 2,000 Islamic extremist sympathizers in the Nordic nation. That is a 900% increase from just seven years ago, when the number was estimated to be approximately 200.

Thornberg says he has “never seen anything like it before.”

Despite the belief that the great majority of radical sympathizers lack the ability and means to conduct terrorist attacks, such an increase is deeply concerning.

“Thornberg said Säpo now receives around 6,000 intelligence tips a month concerning terrorism and extremism, compared to an average 2,000 a month in 2012,” reports The Local.  DailyWire

Terror expert Magnus Ranstorp of the Swedish Defence University told The Local the new figures were expected. “Those of us working in the field of counter-terrorism are not surprised, it has been in the making for some time, it didn’t just appear. When IS declared the caliphate, that was the genie out of the bottle,” he said.

“It is a development we’re seeing in general, of course it’s worse in bigger countries. In the UK there are 23,000 extremists, in Belgium there are 18,000, in France 17,000. Not everyone is equally dangerous, but it only takes a small number of people.”  TheLocal.se

Sweden’s Islamic Rape Crisis: Almost Half of Victims are CHILDREN

Sweden sacrificing her children.   Rape numbers continue to rise as the migrant population rises, with a disturbingly high percentage of the victims are children.

Rapes in Sweden has been soaring since the country started to take in large numbers of Muslim migrants and refugees. According to statistics, 92 percent of all severe rapes (violent rapes) are committed by migrants and refugees. 100 percent of all attack rapes (where victim and attacker had no previous contact) are committed by that same group.

The top-10 list of rapists’ national background shows only one non-Islamic country (Chile). Most rapists have Iraqi background, followed by refugees and migrants from Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Syria, Gambia, Iran, Palestine, Chile and Kosovo. Migrants and refugees from Afghanistan are 79 times more likely to commit rape than Swedes.

The same pattern is seen all over Western Europe, and in many places, it has an impact on demographics in public spaces. Just like in Islamic countries, many countries with a high number of Muslim migrants have fewer women than men on the streets….

Sweden’s national bureau for statistics, BRÅ ‘s report also shows, that not only women, but also children, should be aware of the increased danger of rape and other sexual crimes.

According to BRÅ, 43 percent of rape victims are children.  News10

Swedish PM Announced Church Ministers Should Be Required To Marry Same Sex Couples

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven announced that priest in the Swedish church should be required to marry same-sex couples, regardless of their opinions on homosexuality and gay marriage.  He also supports a motion to only allow priests who agree with same-sex marriage the opportunity to be ordained.

Stefan Löfven announced that church leaders should be required to marry same-sex couples – even if they disagree with homosexual marriage.

The Church of Sweden currently allows its ministers to opt out of weddings, baptisms, and funerals for any reason.

Making the statement on same-sex marriage, Löfven said “no priest in the Swedish Church can refuse to marry same-sex couples”.

“If you work as a midwife you must be able to perform abortions, otherwise you have to do something else. It is the same for priests who do not want to perform same-sex marriages”, he added.

Marriage was redefined in Sweden in 2009. The Church of Sweden is yet to respond to Löfven’s comments.

The news was reported by Sweden’s national broadcaster SVT. It also indicated that the PM would back making support for same-sex marriage a requirement for ordination. ChristianUK
