Sweden, seen by many American progressives as the model of multiculturalism and tolerance, has been experiencing increasingly violent unrest involving immigrants in its three largest cities, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo.
Sweden, along with Germany, make up Europe’s two most generous welfare states. They are also the most welcoming of Islamic immigrants, more than a million of which have flooded into the continent this year from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and North Africa.
The unrest and destabilization in Sweden, which has received zero coverage in the U.S. media even as President Obama plans to ramp up his own refugee welcoming program, is exactly the type of upheaval that the global elite have planned for all of Western Europe and America, analyst Paul McGuire told WND in a Oct. 6 article.
Hundreds of cars were torched, shops had their windows smashed, a police station was set ablaze and fire departments kept from a major blaze by rock-throwing mobs in May 2013. Violent protests erupted again in 2014 and then in late September 2015. The latest violence has included grenade attacks in clashes between Turkish and Kurdish immigrants, who have carried over their ancient rivalry inside their new adopted country of Sweden.
The globalists in charge of Europe and the United States are using Islam and Muslim refugees to “break down social cohesion all over the world,” McGuire, co-author of “The Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End Times Mystery,” told WND, setting the stage for mass unrest. When the violence becomes unbearable, the solution will be police-state crackdowns.
Germany has also seen increasingly violent protests and demonstrations on both sides of the refugee issue, scenes that, again, are never shown on the nightly news in America. Anti-immigrant protests in Germany swelled to more than 20,000 on Monday and more than double that on Wednesday as Chancellor Angela Merkel’s plan to accept more than 1 million refugees becomes increasingly unpopular.
“They’re using refugees in Germany to take over towns and cities. And here in U.S., they’re using refugees to wage war on the social cohesion of our society. So they’re going to slam-dunk the global government, and it will be a terrorist attack or financial crisis that triggers it,” McGuire said.
The mass migration of refugees from Islamic nations coming into Sweden and other EU nations is nothing less than a manufactured crisis from the elite globalist leaders using the ages-old strategy of “ordo ab chao” or order out of chaos, McGuire said.
“Syria was intentionally destabilized through the covert channeling of weapons and money into ISIS, al-Nusra, FSA and other terrorist groups,” he said. “The goal is to flood Sweden, Germany, the EU and eventually America with Islamic refugees who will create a powerful voting bloc to ensure hard-left politicians continue to get into office.”
The second part of the plan is to use militant Islamic groups to destroy social cohesion and use them as tools to increase totalitarian measures under the pretense of managing the chaos, he said. “Once social cohesion and a sense of national identity have been shattered, the next phase is to destroy independent nation states in favor of a UN-style global government.”
According to a report in the Daily Mail, left-wing activists came forward to accuse Swedish police of racism – the exact same scenario that played out in Ferguson in 2014 and Baltimore in 2015.
Protests turned violent Sunday in a northwestern Stockholm suburb of Husby – where more than 80 percent of the residents are from overseas, mostly Turkey, Somalia and the Middle East, the British daily reported, adding that “Trouble then spread to some of the city’s most deprived areas, shattering the country’s proud claim that it is a template for a successful and ethnically diverse society.”
But it’s not the first time riots have erupted in Swedish cities. Similar violence has broken out in 2013, 2014 and last month.
Watch video of Muslims rioting in Stockholm in September:
Lars Bystrom, a Stockholm police spokesman, told the Mail that “fires are mainly lit to lure the police to the scene, who are then attacked.”
He admitted officers have been forced to change their tactics, saying: “Now if there is a small fire that is not likely to spread, and there is no risk to life, we will send out a patrol and keep an eye on it from a distance.
“But we are not going to bring in the fire brigade unless it’s really dangerous.”
The attacks on emergency service workers have led to private security companies telling employees to stay at home, as mobs have started attacking anyone wearing a uniform.
Several public transport routes have also been canceled after rioters started hurling petrol bombs at buses.
The Foreign Office and the U.S. Embassy have warned visitors to stay away from certain suburbs.
Government leaders have been “stunned” by the ferocity of the violence in a country which has long been touted as a paragon of social justice.
For decades, supporters of multiculturalism have pointed to Sweden as a classic example of a society which allows immigrants to continue practicing their own culture while living peacefully alongside their host communities.
Around 15 percent of Sweden’s 9.5 million inhabitants were born outside the country.
The second largest group of immigrants, after the Finns, are Iraqis – numbering more than 125,000. Former Yugoslavs total over 160,000 and Iranians almost 65,000.
