Sweden has suffered greatly from Muslim immigration. Malmo, the third-largest city, has been afflicted with the usual Islamic hostility toward authority: for example, firefighters and emergency workers need police protection when entering the mostly Muslim neighborhood of Rosengard. Diversity immigration has also brought Sweden a Muslim Rape Wave, indicating multiculturalism has not been a big success (particularly for women).
So itâ€™s perhaps not a big surprise that Sweden experienced its first suicide bombing, where the Muslim only managed to kill himself, although two bystanders were injured. Why should the West continue Muslim immigration at all? Whatâ€™s the benefit?
Sweden calls Stockholm blasts â€?terrorist attackâ€™, MSNBC, December 11, 2010
STOCKHOLM â€” Two blasts rocked the center of Stockholm Saturday night in what Swedenâ€™s foreign minister called â€?a terrorist attackâ€? that killed one person and wounding two.
The blasts Saturday took place after Swedish news agency TT said it received a threatening letter about Swedenâ€™s military presence in Afghanistan and a years-old case of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad.
â€?Now your children, daughters and sisters shall die like our brothers and sisters and children are dying,â€? the news agency quoted the e-mail as saying.
Asked if a man found dead at the site of the second blast blew himself up in some way, police spokesman Kjell Lindgren said: â€?It is possible.â€?
The incident began when a car burst into flames in the city center, followed by explosions from within the car which the police said were caused by gas canisters.
Another explosion took place, in which the man died, about 300 meters (yards) away. Two people were wounded in that blast.
â€?Most worrying attempt at terrorist attack in crowded part of central Stockholm. Failed â€“ but could have been truly catastrophic,â€? Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said in a message on Twitter, which was also shown on his blog.
