Tensions have reached a boiling point in Sweden as vast flows of Muslim immigrants from the Middle East have rendered officials helpless to maintain the previous level of order without outside help.
Sweden’s Police Commissioner, Dan Eliasson, put out a cry for help on national TV, stating: “I’m afraid it is the end for the well-organized, decent and egalitarian Sweden we have known so far. Personally, I would not be surprised if a form of civil war occurs. In some places, the civil war has probably already begun.”
Law enforcement officials concerns intensified after a leaked report showed the number of lawless areas or “no-go zones” has increased to 61, up from 55 last year. The inability of police to ensure safety has even reached areas of Stockholm, Sweden’s capital.
Police Chief Lars Alversjo says, “There is lawlessness in parts of Stockholm (Sweden’s capital) now.” He also observed how,“The legal system, which is a pillar in every democratic society, is collapsing in Sweden.”
Swedish authorities and media describe “no-go zones” as places where Swedish law has been replaced by a jumble of every man for himself, and Islamic legal code, Sharia.
Sweden’s government has been passive on the issue to this point and law enforcement officials are fed up. Johan Patrick Engallau sums it up simply:
“The government does not seem to understand that it has lost control. There is a point where you can no longer stop a situation’s development. I do not know if Sweden has reached this point when it comes to [the consequences of] immigration, but I fear we are drawing close. If we right here and now take and clear and powerful action – including stopping immigration and the political promotion of multiculturalism – we might with some difficulty be able to save Sweden.”
