In the wake of the despicable terror attacks in Oslo, the predictable hate speeches against those who criticize Sweden’s immigration policy have already begun. I am not going to waste time on quoting them; let us just note that the hate mongers who are trying to capitalize on the Oslo massacre typically were very quick to say that the suicide bomber in Stockholm was a “mad loner” who did not represent Islam. When an equally “mad loner” strikes, who happens to be critical of immigration, then all of a sudden everyone who may have uttered a critical word of Sweden’s immigration policy is guilty by association.

The leftist hate mongers are also conspicuously silent on the arrests in Denmark of Islamists – Swedish residents, by the way – who planned a terror attack on a Danish newspaper.

Terrorism is terrorism, just as totalitarianism is totalitarianism. It does not matter who the Oslo madman was before he set off on a killing spree – as soon as he triggered that bomb he crossed the same line as the Islamists did on 9/11, or in Madrid 2004, or in London 2005. He turned people around him into instruments for an ideology. Just like the Islamists preach hatred by killing infidels, Anders Breivik preached hatred by killing people who were just as innocent as the victims in the World Trade Center in New York or on the commuter trains in Madrid.

And just like the jihadists in Iraq have used Islam as an excuse to kill innocent Iraqi children, Breivik used his nationalism as an excuse to wipe out the young lives of his fellow countrymen. If we, for a moment, elevate ourselves above the horror of terrorism, we may notice the irony in his: the jihadists who claim to fight for a pure Islamic state kill Muslim children in a Muslim country; Breivik, who apparently wanted to fight for a purely Norwegian Norway killed Norwegian children.

I should not have to point this out, but I will anyway: every life is sacrosanct. From the fetus in your wife’s womb to the old woman in a nursing home whose life is endangered by a government-run, cash-starved health care system. It does not matter if jihadists kill Muslims or Christians or whoever. They are savages all the same. This goes for Breivik as well: it does not matter who he assassinated: he is a lowlife terrorist whose future in eternal torment is the only appropriate punishment for his crimes.

Established Swedish media outlets have already begun exploiting the terror attacks in Oslo, and it is almost self-evident that Prime Minister Reinfeldt, one way or another, will associate the Swedish Democrats with this attack. Such is the political climate in Sweden. That is something Swedes will have to live with until they elect another parliamentary majority in 2014. What they will hopefully not have to live with is an escalation of politically driven crimes against Swedish Democrat politicians. In the shadows of the horrible events in Oslo, let us not forget the low-level, but relentless terrorism that leftist activists direct toward their political adversaries.

Let us not forget Swedish Democrat politicians who have been attacked in their homes, in public, when exercising their right to freedom of speech, etc. Let us not forget the bomb that the police found at a Swedish-Democrat rally in Sodertalje during the election campaign last year.

Again: terrorism is terrorism. When someone shows indifference toward other people’s lives in advancing his or her political agenda, he is a terrorist. Major Hasan, a psychologist in the U.S. Army, who killed 13 people on an army base in Texas in 2009, did so in the name of Islam. Anders Breivik killed people in the name of some anti-Islamic agenda. They are both terrorists and deserve to be treated accordingly.

You would hope that this common-sense logic is apparent and can be embraced by everyone. But we have yet to see the left step up to the plate. The Oslo attacks will provide a litmus test for them: are the leftist activists, who conduct a low-level political war against critics of Sweden’s immigration policy, willing to recognize that terrorists are always terrorists? Are they willing to agree that life is sacrosanct and no one should be sacrificed in the name of an ideology (or a religion)?

Sweden has for the past few years been plagued by begging and street musician Roma. Last summer, some fifty of them were expelled because of this way of supporting themselves in spite of the fact that they were EU citizens. The actual reasons for the deportation were “idling and mendicancy” according to the Swedish Aliens’ Act.

Some of these beggars are not satisfied with just begging. The gangs are organized and also go in for grand larceny and criminality like robbery of elderly people, fraud and theft.

Last year Migration Minister Tobias Billström made clear that these group of Roma staying in Sweden have to earn their living in a fair way. He said that Sweden cannot solve the problems of Bulgaria, Romania or any other eastern European state’s problems with their Roma populations by their moving from those countries to other countries, according to the daily the Dagens Nyheter. Begging is not a an honest way of supporting oneself, he said.

The reactions to come were the expected ones from the media and other “dogooder” authorities. Sweden’s Parliamentary Ombudsman (JO), Hans Gunnar Axberger, addressed severe criticism to the decision. He has examined the law and now, a year later, issued a statement according to which it was “wrong by the police to base their decision on a law that is 57 years old” and that “the preliminary law drafts, that are 60 years old, contain such old wordings that appear old-fashioned”.

The conclusion is thus that laws can be regarded as old (i.e. have been passed before cultural marxism replaced common sense and thus don’t fit in with the politically correct way of reasoning) and can easily be rejected at JO’s own discretion.

Swedish media has recently had big headlines about the uncontrolled criminality in the city of Sodertalje (86 200 inhabitants), 45 kilometers south-west of Stockholm. This town has received over 22 000 Assyrians and Syrians during the last 50 years. And after the war in Iraq, the town has received more Iraqis than the whole American continent jointly. The immigrants are 44% of Sodertalje’s inhabitants.

Last week media paid attention to the high level of threat that the municipality’s civil servants are exposed to when performing their work.

A year ago, two footballer brothers, were shot to death in an illegal gambling club in Sodertalje’s immigrant suburb Ronna owned by Metin Atasvens (see more below) family business Ginatas. Another fatal shooting took place there earlier.

Now the police have listed 20 premises,  that are used for party and immigration association activities, where the civil servants must not enter without being escorted by the police or wearing bulletproof vests before performing their statutory controls. Four of these premises are partly owned by the Syrian immigrated politician Metin Ataseven (see above) who is also a Member of Parliament.

In 2005 a bomb was put in a car belonging to a local civil servant handling restaurant permits. It was after that, that the civil servants inspecting immigrants’ association and their assembly rooms had to start wearing the bulletproof vests. The same applies for the civil servants working with environmental permits.

Sodertalje’s real-estate group CEO Kjell Hasslert recently urged the football clubs Assyriska FF, Syrianska FC and the Syrian Association to stop serving illegal alcohol at their parties. The day after Hasslert and his wife got several serious and anonymous text message death threats. Hasslert was placed under police supervision.

In Sweden, which once was the most confidence-influenced country in the world, politicians have taken for granted that immigrants also are embraced by these principles. Unaware of the fact that so is not the case, and thus without control of today’s situation, the result is a situation that seems unreal for ordinary people.

Unfortunately it is not unreal for the civil servants in Sodertalje. The easy-going attitude from the beginning as regards these issues, has led to the fact that certain more or less criminal immigrants can own and rule Sweden as they wish.

Sodertalje, Malmo and some smaller villages have already fallen. Now it is time for Gothenburg, Sweden’s second biggest city. Those who want to experience Dante’s Divine Comedy are encouraged to visit these places.

Since the Swedish Democrats took seats in the Riksdag (Sweden’s parliament) in September last year, the party has been under constant attack from the political mainstream and the self-appointed elite mainstream media. The attacks are driven by a desire to isolate and, eventually, destroy the Swedish Democrats.

The attacks are spearheaded by Prime Minister Reinfeldt, who – as this blog has reported – does not think sympathizers and active members of the Swedish Democrats deserve the same protection from the state as other Swedes do. This explicit sanctioning of politically driven harassment and violence is of course unbecoming of a country that considers itself part of the free world. It calls into question whether Sweden can actually be considered a functioning parliamentary democracy; so far, the Swedish Democrats have prevailed and managed to exercise influence over the legislative process in the Riksdag.

But what happens if the political harassment and violence actually succeeds? What happens if the prime minister has it his way and the Swedish Democrats implode under the pressure?

It is not hard to see what Reinfeldt himself thinks will happen. He would enjoy a return to the political status quo that preceded last year’s election. Issues pertaining to the country’s reckless immigration policies would once again be swept under the carpet. The mainstream media outlets could once again resort to cover-ups of Sweden’s rampant crime rates, the genocide-scale sexual violence against ethnically Swedish women and the enormous costs that the welfare-driven immigration imposes on taxpayers.

In the circles of Sweden’s political elite things would be back to normal. They would once again be able to go to upscale dinner parties in Stockholm’s posh inner city districts and pretend that the world outside the limousine windows does not exist. Truth-sayers need not apply.

The real consequences of a demise of the Swedish Democrats would be fundamentally different. The hundreds of thousands who actively or tacitly support the SD would not change their minds about immigration. Those supporters now represent 6-8 percent of all voters, possibly with another 2-3 percent who could vote for SD but so far have not “come out”. These people would still want to see a change in immigration policy, and their determination to achieve such a change would only be emboldened if they perceived that the political and media elite had crushed SD.

Where would they turn? There are at least two political movements that would stand in line to scoop up disgruntled SD supporters: the National Democrats and the Swedish Resistance Movement.

The National Democrats have won seats in some local parliaments but have never become a force to be reckoned with on the national scene. Ostensibly, this is due to the success of SD, as the two parties share some important elements in their criticism of Sweden’s immigration policies. But there are also important differences between ND and SD that help explain why the latter, not the former, now has seats in the Riksdag. Unlike SD, ND has never made any categorical statements against the use of force to achieve political goals.

The very fact that ND has left the door open to violent campaigns makes the party dangerous. There has been some criticism among the ranks of ND that SD has sold itself to the parliamentary process. Should SD fail in its intentions to close the flood gates in Sweden’s immigration policy, the ND would be quick to seize the momentum that SD has created. They would market themselves as superficially peaceful and ramp up their violent efforts at forcing their policies upon the Swedish people.

A major difference between SD and ND is that ND is a nationalist party, as opposed to the patriotic SD. Patriotism is love for your country without resentment or hostility toward other countries and cultures; nationalism is love for your country based on such resentment and hostility. This difference is crucial and helps explain what the National Democrats would be capable of, should they gain political momentum.

The Swedish Resistance Movement shares ND’s basic principles of nationalism, but builds its policies explicitly on a Nazi platform. They distance themselves from parliamentarianism and embrace the totalitarian ideology of the Third Reich. Their attitude to political violence tends to be one of outcome, not of principle.

SD is a peaceful, democratic movement. Should they be marginalized and made irrelevant by ugly strong-arming tactics, and be forced out as a result of relentless harassment and violence, there is no doubt that ND and the Swedish Resistance Movement would be the real winners. Should Sweden be brought to that point, a new level of political violence could erupt. That eruption could be strong enough to hurl the country into a stage that proxies a civil war.

No, I am not exaggerating. Already today, Sweden is plagued by a high level of politically driven violence, more so than any other European country. A lot of the violence goes undetected – or unreported – by the mainstream media but is picked up by alternative news outlets. An escalation of this violence, driven by a surge in support for violent anti-immigration movements, would make its way into mainstream media as well. The political elite would be faced with a terrible reality: their country is about to fall apart.

I pray to God that Sweden will never be hurled into the dungeons of such a political, social and economic disaster. I fear, though, that we can no longer rule out this scenario as a possible future for Sweden four, maybe five years ahead.

If there is any reason and intellectual decency left in the circles of Sweden’s political elite, they will see the writing on the wall and start working with SD as a serious political player. If on the other hand they turn a blind eye to the political and social realities in their country, they will be responsible for the ultimate destruction of what was once a thriving, peaceful and prosperous democracy.
