Car bomb rocks Swedish capital suburb

A car bomb went off in the Stockholm suburb of Hägerstensåsen Thursday night just after 10 p.m.

The explosion shook nearby buildings but, fortunately, no one was injured. Police reported that the detonated device was placed in the wheel housing of the car.

One witness stated, “We heard something that sounded like an explosion. It happens so much these days, so you do not really care … apart from the sound, it passed unnoticed.”  

Kjell Lindgren, a spokesman for the police, stated, “Yes, it was some kind of explosion next to a car. Our technicians were on site during the night, and the road was sealed off, but we do not want to speculate on what happened.”

Sweden is no longer the peaceful country it once was. In a recent speech, President Trump referred to a Tucker Carlson Fox News interview with documentary film maker, Ami Horowitz, who told Tucker that the murder rate was “up almost 70 percent” between the period of 2012 and 2016, and that rape is “up a similar number, almost 70 percent.”

Horowitz cited the Swedish National Council for Crime protection for these statistics. His documentary spoke to the rapidly growing number of asylum seekers in Sweden and the challenges Sweden faces to accommodate them.

According to Breitbart, “The number of grenade attacks and car fires in the relatively small nation has shot up in recent years – allegedly because of warring migrant gangs – and the number of fatal shootings has doubled in nine years.”  There have also been “grenade attacks in Stockholm and Malmö, huge riots in the “No Go Zone” of Rinkeby in Stockholm, and ambulance workers demanding ‘military’ defense so they can enter the area.”

There is an ongoing debate in Sweden that the open-door policies of the country are contributing to much of the unrest there. The increase in numbers of refugees is staggering. “Since 2000, the number of asylum seekers to the country increased rapidly from an average 16,000 annually to 160,000 in 2015.”
