VIOLENT MUSLIM RIOTS CONTINUE FOR SIXTH STRAIGHT DAY IN SWEDEN, SPREADING BEYOND CAPITAL

 

 

 

 

” Ah, yes, the gap between rich and poor, that old canard is being dusted off and trotted out to avoid the M issue.”Often young people with immigrant backgrounds – who are poorly educated, cannot find work and feel pushed to the edge of society.” There are thousands of non-Muslim immigrants and working class poor who are not burning down the country screaming allahu akbar even though many of them live in the exact same neighborhoods and have the same levels of income.

In a country with a reputation for openness, tolerance and a model welfare state, the rioting has exposed a fault-line between a well-off majority and a minority – often young people with immigrant backgrounds – who are poorly educated, cannot find work and feel pushed to the edge of society.

But in Orebro, a town in central Sweden, some 25 masked youths set fire to three cars, a school and tried to torch a police station, police said. An old empty building was set alight in the town of Sodertalje, less than an hour’s drive from the capital.”
