The Swedish Suicide Train -- Instant Permanent Residency to Any Syrian Refugees Who Apply|
Courtesy of Bruce Bawr, Frontpage Magazine "The Coming Flood of Syrian Refugees to Sweden."
This week, the eyebrow-raising news is that Sweden is offering instant permanent residency to any and all Syrian refugees who apply.
Full stop. Does anyone really believe that this policy will end well?
Sweden has a population of 9.5 million, of which 1.5 million are foreign-born and around 2.5 million have foreign backgrounds. When one considers that most of the immigrants are Middle Eastern Muslims and that second and later generations in Sweden are often violently hostile to the native Swedes, we're talking about a situation in which around a quarter of the population hates their country of residence.
As Bruce Bawr points out:
Before this new policy was announced, the number of Syrians seeking asylum in Sweden was over 1000 a month. But now? The sky’s the limit. Think about it: Syria’s population is 22.5 million, of which about 5000 are fleeing the country every day. More than two million Syrians have fled their country since the civil war began, and there’s no sign of that number abating.
This means that there is almost a bottomless reservoir of potential Syrian refugees entering Sweden. Quite apart from the current Syrian civil war, which gives the Syrians an especially-good reason to want to flee their country, life in Sweden (even on the dole) is far better than life in Syria (even in peacetime). Any rational Syrian not having a good reason to stay put would be wise to accept the offer of asylum, and no doubt many will. Bawr commented:
What Syrian wouldn’t take Sweden up on such an offer? It means not only a residency card but also an elaborate benefits package including free money, housing, health care, day care – you name it.
It gets worse.
Before this week Sweden’s immigration policy was already suicidal; it’s hard not to see the new policy as an effort to turn slow-motion self-slaughter into something more like a leap off a cliff. The sheer numbers aside, how many of the newcomers will be members of Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and so on? The main reason for the three-year temporary residency was that Swedish authorities needed time to do background checks. Have they decided to abandon those checks entirely?.
I'm guessing "yes" -- or at best, the Swedish authorities are planning on doing the checks on the immigrants after they are living in Sweden. If so, this is incredibly stupid -- obviously, any halfway-intelligent terrorists will simply acquire false identities and disappear into the sympathetic masses of their co-nationals. Tracking most of them down after they're in the country will be close to impossible. I suspect that the Swedish officials are just avoiding thinking about the possibility, since it goes against their notions of political correctness.
The Swedish newspapers, which are the ultras of Swedish political correctness, are in fact arguing the opposite:
The editors of Aftonbladet, for example, complained that Sweden hadn’t gone far enough, and lamented the fact that the rest of Europe wasn’t joining in. Noting that European countries have taken in about 40,000 Syrians, the editors complained that this wasn’t nearly sufficient. “We have built,” they complained, “a ‘Fortress Europe.’”
Summed up in these two words, these twin trochees – “Fortress Europe” – is the very madness of Sweden.
Aftonbladet‘s editors called on Sweden to pressure other EU countries to copy the new policy, and proposed that it make a more active effort to bring Syrians to its shores, namely by plucking them up at refugee camps in Syria and shipping them to Sweden from there. “Sweden can help. We have the knowledge and resources,” the editors of Aftonbladet wrote. “The question is whether we want to.”Somehow, I don't think that the other European Powers will be all that eager to climb aboard the Swedish suicide train.
And it continues to get worse:
How, then, does Sweden expect to pay to house and feed all these refugees? An article that appeared a couple of weeks ago provided an answer. The headline was blunt: “Malmö takes from the old and the sick and gives to immigrants.” The thrust of the report was that the city of Malmö, desperate to find a way to cover its ever-rising expenditures on immigrants (it spends $15 million a year on mother-tongue schooling alone), has proposed severe cuts in outlays for sick and elderly native Swedes.
Remember that we’re talking here about a country where the chief justification for high taxes is a generous welfare system that provides a safety net for the unemployed, the ill, and the elderly. Swedes are brought up to view themselves as partners in a covenant with the state: pay your way when you’re able to, and you’ll be taken care of when and if you aren’t. Yet in Malmö, thanks to the soaring costs associated with immigration, the local government can no longer keep its end of the deal.In other words, the Swedish State is directly breaking its explicit social contract with its own people -- the people who actually paid into the Swedish welfare state -- in order to provide benefits for foreigners who have not done so. What's more, these are foreigners who have a violent religious ideology that tells them that they are owed such payments as jizya -- the protection money due from infidels so that the Muslims will not simply kill them. This makes any gratitude on the part of the refugees extremely unlikely, and indeed makes it likely that the refugees will engage in violent rioting and terrorism should any attempt ever be made to cut back on these special benefits.
Seen from abroad, it’s very clear where all this is leading. Why can’t the Swedes see it themselves?
My guess is that the Swedish elites are moved by a class- and race-based arrogance so transcendent that they cannot see how these immigrants could possibly be a threat to the Swedish way of life. After all, the refugees are poor, and nonwhite -- surely they are but "victims," and surely the rich white Swedish aristocrats could never be vulnerable to persons matching such a description?
I'm guessing that, over the next decade, the Swedes will begin to learn better. And, having let a larger percentage of hostile foreigners into their country than any other European nation, Sweden may be the first of these nations to experience actual civil war, as the Muslims rise up to claim their Allah-given dominion over the Infidels.

Sounds like they are desperate to get a population increase, but haven't thought anything through.
Sweden has the highest rate of rapes of any Western country, and the vast majority of these rapes are committed by Muslim immigrants against ethnic Swedes. You'd think they'd get the clue. Apparently, the Swedish elite is so unanimous in support of open immigration from the Mideast that no newspapers dare to even officially notice the implications of the statistics.
"Sweden has the highest rate of rapes of any Western country"
At the risk of being politically incorrect, one would be tempted to say that "maybe they like it." I can't think of any other reason why they'd put up with that.
The fact that this hasn't led to regular lynchings of the immigrants by the natives seriously implies that the Swedes on some level believe that they deserve to be raped, perhaps for their imaginary acts of imperialism.
It isn't reported here but lynchings are what happen when the immigrants think that the Aussies are prey.
Also, Aborigines win when the Muslims try to prey on them. It just doesn't work.

Something that you don't mention: once you have citizenship of a European Union country, you are entitled to move to any other European Country. So if millions of Syrians decide that Sweden is too cold, there would be nothing to stop them moving to another EU country once they have that EU passport.

Oh yikes! I was going to suggest the neighboring countries with Sweden secure their borders. It sounds like Sweden is screwing everyone over.
It has occurred to me that this could be an issue which could break the EU. What if hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of Syrians flood into Sweden? And bring the civil war with them. And then start migrating to other European countries?

As always, the Jews are the canaries in the coal mine on this one.
I figure, the more Syrians away from the Israeli border, the better. If Sweden wants to kill itself, that's their business.
I wonder which bleeding heart country we can get to take the Philistines, um, I mean Palestinians?

I'm more referring to the popular stories about how the jews have been run out of Malmo in particular and Sweden in general due to the influx of muslims and the general inability to punish them en mass for en mass persecution.
IMHO, the Jews need to wake up and realize that the other nations do not want them, don't care, and don't have our backs. We have a State now, and we need to be living there.
(packing and planning as I speak)
That's a way of putting it that I hadn't thought of. And yes, Malmo.

<sarcasm>If Syria empties out, that'll leave lots of room for the Swedes, won't it?</sarcasm>

As an European, I have two reactions...
(Channeling the Joker here, otherwise I'd have to shoot myself)
Secondly, I suggest you read the novel "Caliphate" by Tom Kratman. THAT is what is awaiting us in Europe.
Channeling Obama, let me be clear. I am appalled at what is happening in Syria. What the population, especially the non-Muslim part, is suffering, is horrible. I've posted before on the rapes, torture and murder of non-muslim girls by the mostly foreign invaders. How, under 'dictator' Assad, there was relative peace and all groups seemed to live in peace together. Personally, I'd do everything to keep him in power and destroy the enemy aka AQ. Better the devil you know. I am, however, not willing to let any more come here because we will not be getting the people who really need it but those who seek nothing but expanding their insane cult around the world.
When are the next elections in Sweden? It is going to be interesting to see who is going to win. Right now, here, in the Netherlands, more and more people are taking up the struggle against the pending influx of Romanians who are willing to work for lower income. Our government has the lowest support it has ever has as it licks the boots of Brussels. If they even think of doing something similar to Sweden...
Secondly, I suggest you read the novel "Caliphate" by Tom Kratman. THAT is what is awaiting us in Europe.
I've read it, and it's a great book. Great because Kratman dares speculate about something taboo in a lot of science fiction. Very few science-fiction writers are wiling to talk about the elephant in the room of Muslim aggressiveness and deliberate colonization-by-immigration. Thus they craft futures in which, for no obvious or very explicit reason, the Muslims have all become sweetly reasonable save perhaps in their countries of origin (which may lead either to The End of the World or the Destruction of Israel -- almost never anything in between).
Tom Kratman's speculation is that the result will be a highly-destructive global war, which the Muslims badly LOSE, coupled with a hardening of all Great Powers against both Islam and each other, but in the case of Europe and Europe alone, the Muslim minority will rise, swelled by immigrants from the devasted lands, and the European natives will go under. The only similar speculation I can recall, whcih seems to have been ignored by most of the critics because (1) it took place before 9-11 and (2) it was a mere detail of the background, is that of Sarah Zettel in Fool's War (1997): part of the background of her interstellar world was that Islam launched a nuclear terrorist war against the rest of the world, and in consequence most Muslims were wiped out on Earth and the survivors became a (fairly peaceful wandering people similar to the medieval Jews: her heroine is Muslima.
I don't think that this will be what will actually happen to Europe, mostly because I have greater faith in the European people -- I don't think that they are so cowardly that they will simply lie down and let a numerical minority with inferior weapons weapons overrun and enslave them. There is an electoral reaction ongoing in Europe against immigration from Muslim lands, and beyond that there are elites, militaries and popular right-wing groups which if necessary would make coups or rebellions to overwhelm the immigrant votes should things get that far. Europe has a bloody history of highly-competent warfare: one far more recent than any major military successes of the Muslim world against the European.
The native European populations, particularly the common folk who are directly-harmed and harassed by arrogant Muslim violence, must be getting madder and madder at the Muslims among them. I'm guessing that, even in countries with relatively tightly-censored media, such as Sweden, this anger will increase until it has serious electoral consequences.
One likely outcome will be the disintegration of the European Union itself. For the reactions will differ from country to country, and when some countries want to block further Muslim immigration, while others (like Sweden) open their gates wide to the most DANGEROUS sort of immigrants (refugees from a civil war in which the rebel side is supported by Al Qaeda), this will of necessity mean the end of unwatched borders between the nations of Europe.
So we will see the end of the European Union, killed by its own unwillingness to adopt the responsibilities of a real nation-state. Its death may be necessary for Europe's life, since the unelected bureaucrats of the EU would be the last to respond to the demands of the electorate.
IMO, Europe will live!
You have far greater faith in the Swedish people to wake up and resist than I do. I meanwhile remain firm in my belief in their power to make excuses and stick their finger in their ears until its FAR too late. When it does go down even if they did suddenly find the backbones they abandoned in the 19th century, just what do you expect them to do? Like all good Europeon progressives they've thoroughly disarmed their civilian population. Not to mention your average Boy Scout troop probably has a better grasp of military training and tactics than 99 of 100 Swedes. Meanwhile all their newest 'citizens' both current and especially future will be getting special 'care packages' from immama back home. Even the most determined norsk march will wilt in the face of a hot AK.
No I believe the Swedes (not all European peoples mind you, just the Swedes) will wait until the problem to much to far gone to be solved without camps. At that point they may try to resist, the results of which will be comically one sided. Most will flee to other countries with demands for shelter and action from the European community. When that is met with rock solid fumfering and calls for "international action" they'll eventually get around to doing what Europe always eventually does, demand America do it for them. At that point they will to their horror find that they've been all too successful in finally castrating America's will to respond to international crisis's.
Those few areas of Sweden that DO decide to definitively react and DO manage to somehow arm themselves will devolve into 'Bosnia 2' style urban combat. For a short term anyway as one side will be hardened veterans of it and the other utterly clueless.
When it does go down even if they did suddenly find the backbones they abandoned in the 19th century, just what do you expect them to do?
Sweden actually has a strong military for a European Minor Power, and only ended compulsory military service for all male citizens a few years ago. That means that the majority of Swedish men at least know how to move in units and shoot rifles. In terms of small arms, Sweden (like most countries) owns enough or could get enough on short notice to essentially arm their whole population capable of military service of any sort.
Muslims tend toward military incompetence. They are "hardened veterans" of fighting against other military incompetence -- when Syrians have fought the militarily competent, they have suffered military disasters. The only way in which the Syrian immigrants would be likely to win a straight-out civil war would be if they significantly outnumbered the natives in the category of persons able and willing to bear arms in a fight -- and by significantly, I mean enough to counter the huge Swedish advantage in heavy weapons.
Sweden may go down, but if Sweden goes down it will be because the extraordinary Swedish conformity leads them to keep ignoring the problem until the first organized attempts to seize Swedish territory against armed resistance begin. Even then, the Muslim tendency to jump the gun, which comes from their delusions of Divine favor, may save Sweden -- I wouldn't be surprised if the Muslims attempted to tear off territories when they still were less than 25% of the Swedish population.
Also remember that not all the Muslims in Sweden belong to the same factions. Co-operation between factions cannot be assumed, based on the historical evidence.
Finally, if Sweden does go down or is in serious risk of going down, I don't see the rest of Europe ignoring this -- at a minimum, other European countries would close off the borders with Sweden, and stop letting in Muslim immigrants to their own countries.
Given how prone the muslims are to violence when their numbers are significant I predict a civil war in Sweden in the near future.
Indeed -- and given how arrogant they regarding their estimate of their own chances, I predict that the Muslims will start the civil war in Sweden long before they have any real chance of winning it.
The Swedes would do well to pay attention to Mindanao, but I'm sure they're thinking, 'what would the events in a 'third world region' have to do with us?'http://digitaledition.philstar.com/newspaper/showArticle/22794/share
It's a rinse-repeat cycle of 'appease-attack' over there. And it's not the Muslim groups who are the productive ones. This will be Sweden's future.
ZAMBOANGA CITY – A week of violence in the southern Philippines has undercut hopes of lasting peace in the resource-rich region and exposed the government to criticism for underestimating rogue Muslim rebels who feel ignored by a landmark deal last year.Edited at 2013-09-15 10:21 pm (UTC)
The agreement signed by President Aquino and the biggest Muslim rebel group last October was meant to pave the way for a revival of Mindanao after 40 years of conflict, giving Muslims there more autonomy in the Catholic-majority country.
That deal, with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), remains on track, but the assault on the commercial hub of Zamboanga City by hundreds of armed rebels has underlined fears that the region’s volatile mix of guns, clans and disgruntled rebel factions could yet derail the process.
The army said 61 people, including 51 members of the breakaway faction of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), had been killed in the fighting, now in its seventh day. Ninety people have been wounded.
Aquino, who visited the city on Friday to face one of the biggest security crises of his three-year rule, must decide whether to crack down on the group – risking spreading violence – or open talks that could complicate the peace process.
A brief ceasefire collapsed on Saturday and troops were still battling rebels in Zamboanga, a port that is home to 800,000 people, and the nearby island of Basilan on Sunday, forcing thousands to flee.
The violence has paralyzed the port, shutting banks and businesses, setting around 300 houses on fire and grounding flights. The rebels made their surprise attack on Monday, trying to march through the city to plant a flag of independence.
“There’s only one word to describe what is happening in the city – catastrophic,” said Cholo Soliven, president of the Zamboanga City Chamber of Commerce and Industry. “We are losing a lot, our economy is bleeding.”
Mindanao’s mineral reserves include gold, copper, nickel, iron, chromite and manganese and account for about two-fifths of total reserves in the country.
The Sulu Sea and Cotabato Basin service area, both within the conflict zone, have combined reserves of 411 million barrels of crude oil, equivalent to more than three times the country’s annual consumption, and 2.3 billion cubic feet of gas.
The violence is a sobering reminder for potential investors. Miners and other companies such as food processor Del Monte Pacific Limited had said they were considering expanding after the MILF peace deal.
“If the violence ... continues for a protracted period, or if the conflict widens, this could also seriously undermine Mindanao’s efforts to attract new investment,” said Rajiv Biswas, Asia-Pacific Chief Economist with IHS.
Complicating the standoff, the army says that at least 100 residents are trapped in rebel-held areas, with dozens believed to have been taken as hostages. About 62,000 people have been displaced, authorities said, while some residents stranded by the fighting appealed for food and water.
“We have no food and no money to buy it,” Roland Bocoy, 33, a porter at the city airport, told Reuters. “I lost my home and the only possessions I have are the clothes on my back.”
The rebels are one faction of the divided MNLF rebel group, which signed a discredited peace deal with the government in 1996. The faction’s leader, Nur Misuari, 71, broke away from the main group in 2001 and warned last year that the MILF was signing its “death warrant” by agreeing to the latest deal.
“His intention is to provoke violence and internationalize this to make the MNLF a more important player in the peace process,” said Stephen Norris, a security analyst with the Control Risks group in Singapore. – Reuters
So ... are the Filipinos ever going to lose patience with the Mindano Muslim rebels? Or are they going to keep running for the football Lucy's holding, sure that she'll let them kick it this time ... ?
