Supremacists are having a ball with this one.

Are these "youths" from mostly Islamic countries? Yes, they are. Is it a religious conflict? No, it isn't. Thus, whether they are Muslim or not is irrelevant. What is relevant is the course of Europe's social policies for the past 35 years.

Even though many reactionaries slam Europe for its "socialism", the truth is Europe's welfare state is largely attacked by neoliberal policies, first advocated by Reagan and Thatcher in the 80's, and accelerated in the 90's, even by social democrats, in the run up to a common currency and single market. Many Americans lament the offshoring of meaningful jobs.

These policies led to a societal race to the bottom. There is, after all "no such thing as society". The embrace of neoliberalism led to privatization of utilities paid for by taxpayers, deregulation of labour, breakdown of the nation state, casino capitalism, and a culture of obscene wealth at the top. Greed works as Gordon Gekko would say.

Sweden is in this regard no exception. It's ironic these tendencies were first spotted in the novels of Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö.

So positive freedom was swapped for negative freedom: consumers can choose their own energy or internet provider, yet are powerless to vote for their own form of society.

It's exactly this background, in which many youths from Europe cannot find a way to give any meaningful direction to their lives. Apart from resorting to violence.

Just don't call it class warfare.

Quite a disingenuous diatribe. You must be a card carrying liberal. No one else would take so much time to post such idiotic nonsense.

Interesting how you can just dismiss the role of Islam as "irrelevant" without any evidence. When you come with poor cultural values (e.g. a chronic sense of being victimized, low priority placed on education) and then in turn refuse to assimilate to the successful Euro-American socio-cultural model, you have a perfect storm of failure. But you prefer the comfortable. simplistic white leftist response of shrieking about "supremacists" and "reactionaries".

It is not the beginning of the 20th century during the industrial revolution when countries needed cheap labor. There is no longer any point in allowing these angry folks into civilized countries. Let them stay in their own country and societies and they can live in peace or kill each other who really cares? But the 200 year old nonsense that diversity makes you stronger is way out dated and is totally wrong. Let these folks stay in their home countries. With automation we really don't need them at all.

If they go back to their own countries they will choose to kill. Violence is all the know. That is why their countries are still full of cave dwellers.

Yes, hurt the only country in the Middle East that actually creates wealth, has a world class educational system, a well educated public, and democratic elections that don't result in massive slaughter from the losers.

Feel the peace.

"The question is why would any country support the foremost threat to peace in the entire world. "
You mean they support Islam, the "religion of peace" which is responsible for most of the atrocities being committed lately? If there's a bombing, beheading, rioting, there's never an Israeli involved.

Jews are in the forefront pushing for unlimited immigration to the Western world. This is largely their doing.

Many countries are plagued by the importation of invasive non-native species. The most successful cures have been to find a natural enemy of the invasive specie and introduce it into the wilds. I would suggest that Sweden starts importing Jews.

Or, you can continue to try to placate the invasive species with feelings of home. I would suggest shipping in a mountain of sand (Several mountains actually) to Sweden along with a gi-normous herd of camels. Make a gigantic sandbox about the size of Rhode Island and let the invasive species play like its their home.

I'm assuming you are a US citizen. Unless you are 100% Native American, back in the day, bigots made absurd remarks like that about YOUR immigrant ancestors. In addition, your comment about people of the Jewish faith is particularly offensive.

You are particularly offensive! Be gone, I have no use for you or your silly responses.

In fact people did make offensive remarks about my ancestors. BUT THEY OVERCAME, they worked hard to give me a better life. They also came to the U.S. under passports. Also the so-called Native Americans came here via a land bridge from Asia, so he ARE NOT native to this land. However they were defeated by the coming Europeans and to the winner goes the spoils. Read some history Pee Wee, especially about "Manifest Destiny."

"non-native species"

You do realize that from a biological sense, we are all one species called "Homo Sapiens Sapiens"?

Whites think they better then the rest of the species. Therefore priveliged to set policy that affect the rest of the planet aversely and then tell the rest of the world to hold a stiff upper lip and bear it. At least from the time of Greece to now that has been the case. Rome was worse.

Not if our scientists were honest about it. The different "races" don't even share common ancestry. Western Europeans have Neanderthal infusion, Asians have infusion from another distinct source that shares DNA with a proto-human finger bone found in a cave, and Eastern Africans have an infusion from a third distinct source, fossils of which have yet to be found.

Of course, its only an economic issue. Nothing more, move along. The power of pseudo-liberal self-delusion is remarkable.

They are not "youths". Youths is a codeword for non-Swedish Immigrants. These immigrants are given the most aid in Sweden of anywhere in the word. How much more do we have to bleed, financially and physically before we realize that anti-racism doesn't work? Sweden has been left defenseless against these hoodlums!

This is one of the very few articles by the European MSM that deals honestly with Europes third world Islamic immigrant problem. Scroll down to the bottom to see some very interesting comments by Swedes who finally get the chance to voice their concerns about immigration that their own press denies them.

Thanks for the article. The only solution it seems to offer is that countries with large immigrant populations should revise their immigration policies to de-emphasize family reunification and blanket acceptance of refugees--and instead emphasize work and student visas. That makes sense. When a country has high unemployment, it makes little economic sense to continue importing aliens who will be unemployed. Sweden would do well to follow Denmark's example. In the US, the proposed Immigration Law reduces family-reunification visas and increases work visas. Congress should get it done asap.
