Swedish migration disaster: How one symptom can be a sign of society’s malaise

This story for me is typical of the malaise in many European countries resulting from current migration policies and my thanks to Stefan at Sanity for Sweden for highlighting this story.

An Afghan refugee called Arif – acting as the spokesperson for a group calling itself ‘Afghani unaccompanied refugee children in Sweden’ – has a well-followed Facebook page and has been invited to gives New Year’s speech by a town’s socialist politicians etc. in Sweden.

It turns out that he is 20 years old and had his asylum application rejected in Oct. 2015; it was appealed twice but failed. So far the Swedish police have not been able to find him (why is this so difficult?).

In 2016 this man participated in a Swedish church confirmation camp and sexually abused a 14-year-old girl and was sentenced, with some witness questioning what he was doing in the camp in the first place. Some priests said “he was interested in Christian faith” and he is “and incredibly soft and careful guy”,

Now, when I heard this story I was absolutely incensed that incidents like this are occurring all around Europe. When added up, they create a general picture that something is wrong with European society and that Europeans have to wake up from their dormant slumber and start taking a serious look at what is going on around them. Fortunately for us it is the many alt-media vloggers like Sanity for Sweden that are helping to bring this about.

Multiculturalism Is Splintering the West

Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, is an Italian journalist and author who has published this fascinating article for The Gatestone Institute.

The article refers to “increasingly permanent chain of ‘suspended communities’ nesting within nations throughout the West”, as described by the American historian Andrew Michta. “The emergence of these enclaves, reinforced by elite policies of multiculturalism, group identity politics, and the deconstruction of Western heritage, has contributed to the fracturing of Western European nations”.

Giulio Meotti goes on to give an example of this by referring to the suburbs of Gennevilliers in France, where the Charlie Hebdo attackers came from, and the Birmingham suburb of Sparkbrook  that has ‘produced one tenth of England’s jihadists’ and continues:

‘There, Burqas and beards mean something. Dressing has always symbolized loyalty to a lifestyle, a civilization. When Mustafa Kemal Atatürk abolished the Caliphate in Turkey, he forbade beards for men and veils for women. The proliferation of Islamic symbols in Europe’s ghettos now demarcates the separation of these suburbs. The new leader of England’s UK Independence Party (UKIP), Henry Bolton, recently said that the Britain is “buried” by Islam and “swamped” by multiculturalism.’

An interesting phenomenon has been the upsurge in support of political figures like Geert Wilders in The Netherlands and the AfD party – Alternative for Germany. Meotti makes specific reference to the huge unpopularity of Angela Merkel’s  fatal decision to open the doors to over a million refugees and migrants:

‘Beatrix von Storch, an AfD leader, said to the BBC that “Islam does not belong in Germany”. She explained that it is one thing to allow Muslims privately to preach their Islamic faith, but another to appease political Islam, which is trying to change German democracy and society.
