Sweden has long been known as a Socialist welfare state which even attempted to limit the fat intake of their people through taxes. The tax was repealed after people went out of the country to buy butter and ice cream.
One of the many downsides to being a Socialist state is the attraction of immigrants looking for a better life (or a free ride). This policy has attracted a large number of Muslims to the country:
Some 80% of the 12,000 residents in Husby are Muslim immigrants. Due to its liberal immigration policy and generous welfare benefits, Sweden has in recent decades become one of Europe’s top destinations for immigrants, both in absolute numbers and relative to its size.
What is the solution? Sweden must first acknowledge that this is a Muslim issue. If you cannot address the cause of the problem, you will never fix it.
Thirteen people aged between 18 and 25 have been arrested after protesters set fire to two schools in the fifth consecutive night of riots in Stockholm.
Fifteen cars were torched on Thursday night across the Swedish capital's suburban neighbourhoods, and an attempt to set ablaze a police station was promptly quenched. Fire-fighters responded to some 70 emergency calls overnight.
"This makes me extra angry. Are things going to get better if people set schools on fire?" Aleks Sakala, a resident of Stockholm's northern district of Kista, asked the Expressen newspaper.
"This is as far from good sense as you can get. This is madness. Where will my kids go to school tomorrow? They probably won't be able to finish out the term."
Security reinforcements are converging in Stockholm from around the country to curb the spiraling street violence, which erupted days after a 69-year-old machete-wielding man was shot dead by police.
