In another report about Islam’s conquest-by-immigration of Europe, the estimate is that Oslo, Norway’s capital city, will be half “immigrant” by 2040. (The word “Muslim” seems to be verboten in politically correct Norway, but that is the meaning.) Islamic residents have shown little interest in assimilation and in some instances are downright unfriendly:
In response to the figures, Oslo’s current mayor thinks increased Islamic diversity is just fine:
Oslo mayor welcomes immigrant boom, The Local, March 14, 2012
Oslo’s mayor Fabian Stang has said he is unconcerned by statistics showing that immigrants will make up half of Oslo’s population three decades from now.
His reaction stood in stark contrast to that of Progress Party leader Siv Jensen, who immediately called for tighter restrictions on immigration when Statistics Norway published its projections on Tuesday. [. . .]
Easy for Mayor Stang to say. He’s an elite male riding around in the back of a limo, and is unlikely to be attacked by Muslim rape gangs, as young Norwegian women are.
Indeed, the Islamicized future created by Muslim immigration looks particularly dangerous for Scandinavian women, as noted by human rights activist Hege Storhaug during a Canadian speaking tour last year (see LTG’s blog Human Rights Advocate Discusses Muslim Immigration in Norway):
When asked about safety for women now that so many Muslims live in Scandinavia, she replied, “There is no doubt that the freedom, the level of freedom I had as a young woman, young women in Norway will not have, and don’t have actually today and they will not have it in the future, as far as I can see. So the freedom for women in Europe is going backwards.”
“Girls in school, they are mocked by Muslim boys and they dye their hair black, yes. Blondes are dying their hair black, that is correct. And some of them also move to other parts of Oslo to be let alone.”

Here’s the demographic item mentioned above:
Half of Oslo dwellers immigrants by 2040, The Local, March 13, 2012
Immigrants are set to make up almost half of Oslo’s population by 2040, according to Statistics Norway, new figures show, prompting an immediate call for more restrictive immigration policies from Progress Party leader Siv Jensen.
In less than 30 years from now, 70 percent of the Norwegian capital’s first and second generation immigrants will have their roots in countries outside the 30-member European Economic Area, Statistics Norway said.
The study, the first ever projection of immigration trends to be published in Norway, shows that the largest cities will also see the biggest upsurge in immigrant numbers.
Immigrants are defined in the statistics as either people who have either moved to Norway from another country, or the Norway-born children of two first-generation immigrants.
According to Statistics Norway’s most likely scenario, Oslo’s immigrant population will rise from today’s 28 percent to 47 percent in 2040.
In the country as a whole, the immigrant population is expected to jump from 12 to 24 percent, or from 600,000 people today to 1.5 million in 2040.
For Siv Jensen, the trend is deeply worrying.
“For far too long Norway has been an attractive country for asylum seekers and immigrants. The Progress Party believes it’s high time for more restrictive policies,” she said.
“The more immigrants there are the more difficult it will be to make integration work,” according to the 42-year-old head of the populist opposition party, which has long called for stricter immigration rules.
Jensen said the Progress Party wanted Norway to hand out fewer residence permits to immigrants. She also called for the country to tighten immigration policy loopholes.
For instance, she suggested that an immigrant marrying somebody from the same country of origin in Norway should not automatically be granted residency.
“We must admit that there are major differences in the types of integration challenges posed by different immigrants.
“Norway still has a major need for workers, and labour-market immigration from Eastern Europe presents completely different integration challenges than immigration from Eastern Africa,” said Jensen.
