The ongoing riots in Stockholm, Sweden's immigrant community has seen over a hundred cars set on fire, buildings torched, and even attempted arson targeting a police station. The recent killing of a 69-year-old Portugese man by authorities who claim he was wielding a machete set off the rampage that has continued for six nights as of this writing.

At least 29 people have been arrested in the course of the turmoil afflicting the famously tolerant, peaceful, welfare-providing Nordic state. And now it's precisely that characterization of the Swedish model that's prompted soul-searching among its observers:
"The groups that are involved are some of the most economically deprived groups within society," said Matthew Goodwin, a UK researcher. "In segregated areas, many are disappointed about their future prospects," claimed another Swedish analyst, who suggested that the disproportionate effects of unemployment among the country's mostly Middle Eastern and East African immigrants is causing resentment against their host country.
Still, Sweden remains one of the most open, welcoming nations in the world:

"Sweden has been traditionally welcoming of refugees, and 15% of residents in the country are foreign-born, one of the highest ratios in Europe," writes USA Today.
A survey last year ranked Sweden #14 on its list of countries whose citizens favor open borders. The US ranked #32.

Looks like the push for world wide Sharia Law is growing in America, UK and now Sweden.

Seriously, the entire world needs to round up these camel humpers and deport them, maybe to Bikini Atoll. Feed them a diet rich in vegetables from Chernobyl.

Seriously what do they have to be resentful about? This country supports them practically cradle to the grave. They have no major needs that are not met by the government. What do they have to gripe about? Ungrateful bunch of savages. If I were a citizen of that country I would demanding that any caught rioting be arrested and deported back to whatever war torn African country they came from.

They are in every country,causing disruptions and crimes. GOVTS being POLITICALLY CORRECT are asking for trouble....afraid to hurt Muslims feelings and being fair, is getting all of us in hot boiling pork fat.
We are the infidels, therefore we need to be killed. They are relentless and pushy. The worst part is they come here or any other country, and become citizens....then they weave their way into local,state and Federal office and it's hard to say no because they are CITIZENS. IT'S THEIR WAY OR NO WAY!

At least now, after that soldier was hacked to death in England, they are putting a group together to get these radical Sheet heads out of the country. We need to do the same.

I worry about my family, my kids grandchildren and their future.
If this country doesn't wake up soon, civilization as we know it will be brought down by Muslims.

The biggest obstacle in Sweden and in the UK is that the citizens are disarmed, the liberal progressive ideal. Obama would like to do the same here and is having the federal government buy as many bullets as possible to keep them out of the hands of law abiding citizens.

Muslims never assimilate into any culture, they never have and they never will. I was driving on the north side of Columbus last week and was astonished at all the female Muslims wearing the tent like burka and hijab in 80 plus degree heat.

It was creepy seeing all the hooded Muslims, talking gibberish and living in the Stone Age right in the middle of a modern culture.

It wasn't that long ago that a Muslim plotted to attack one of our local malls with an AK 47. Imagine all the people that would have been killed.

TAKINí IT TO THE STREETS: Swedish Citizens Take to Streets to Defend Property From Rioting Immigrants. If the responsible authorities fail to act, other forms of authority will assert themselves. They may not act responsibly, but they will act.

Wrong!
It's the 100 clip capacity clips and war type weapons. Do your research a,d quit blaming Obama for everything just because you don't agree.
And since the failure of the bill, how many people have died,kids, from guns in the hands of irresponsible loons?
I am NOT against owning a gun,but it's the loons who are bringing the issue to light.
Governments will protect citizens when push comes to shove. Not all citizens are qualified to use weapons.

Liberals, socialist and communists always seek to first register then confiscate the weapons of private citizens. You are a fool to trust government or police to help you in a crisis.

We need heavy duty weapons to deal with a Muslim or Rodney King riot.

With Muslims or Third World People living in a modern culture, it is only a matter of when, not if, they riot.

Most conservatives are over the edge PARANOID! About everything.
Someone is always after you,and you're all GUN ready to attack....
Get real. This isn't a war zone.....relax about life and breath!
I'm not saying this to be mean....it's just a fact.
When was the last time you were ATTACKED by a Muslim? Or encounter a riot?

I know a lot of LIBERALS who own guns so what's your point?

Muslims have been filtering in this country for decades...this just didn't happen. Look to other former presidents decades and decades ago who opened the floodgates for immigrants!

Early 1900's they came in droves...ELLIS ISLAND.....REMEMBER THAT?
Millions of people flooded the country, and if had not been for your grandparents or great grand parents coming to this country, YOU would not be here, now would you?

The Muslim you are referencing was named Nuradin Abdi, a Somali, who plotted to take an AK into a local mall and kill a large number of people.

In a nearby bank, you must remove your hat and sun glasses to receive service but often Muslim females come in with full burka and only their eye slits showing.

It will be interesting to see what happens in Sweden now that some people are taking to the streets to oppose the Muslim hordes.

I don't remember us letting in many anti American immigrants during the early 1900's. Mainly starving Irish immigrants who went straight to work after registering with our country.

Now we let refugees in from war torn nations and they hate our country but by god they love our social services. I've had many friends leave the Columbus area in the medical field because they couldn't stand the Somalis. They were some of the rudest, crudest, and most entitled patients to come through the hospitals.

Oh and before you play the race card I've been on medical missions trips to Africa twice. Once to Nigeria (trust me many of you wouldn't have gone there or seen the things I've seen done to women and children in the name of Allah!) and once to Ghana. I've also been to Peru. The Somalis are laughing at us the whole time they are taking our cash and sending it home to fund terrorism.

Actually we did, it was hard to screen out the radicals back then, and most of the immigrants during that time period were Italian or other Southern/Eastern europeans.

The upsurge in "anarchist" activity is related to that.

It eventually led to immigration levels being slashed in the 1920s, which if one hears about it at all today, you are told that it somehow caused WWII because we didn't let Japan export it's population here.
