Scandinavia: Shift in Immigration Debate

Until recently, the very notion that some European neighborhoods were
"no-go" zones was vehemently dismissed by politicians and commentators on
both sides of the Atlantic as a myth, a lie, a vicious right-wing calumny.
But even as Swedish officials were denying the existence of such zones in
their own country, they were secretly mapping them out and overseeing a
police effort to liberate them.

The Sweden Democrats are on the rise because voters finally grasp the extent
and significance of the damage their elites have been doing to their
country -- and the elites, both in the media and in government, are
scrambling to snap into line in order to keep hold on power.

In some ways, the winds in Scandinavia may be turning, but it does not seem
as if Stanghelle and his ilk are about to speak the whole truth about Islam,
or to apologize for their inexcusable abuse of those who have.

Not long ago, Norwegian journalists were virtually united in representing
Sweden, with its exceedingly liberal immigration policy and its strict
limits on public discussion of the subject, as a model of enlightened
thinking that deserved to be emulated. Meanwhile Denmark, with its far freer
atmosphere of debate (remember the Danish cartoons) and more sensible border
controls, was almost universally depicted in Norway as a deplorable hotbed
of Islamophobia. That appears to be changing. As Hans Rustad of the
alternative Norwegian news website Document.no noted recently, the term
"Swedish conditions," which some of us have been using for years to refer to
the colossal scale of Sweden's Muslim-related problems, is actually turning
up these days in the mainstream Norwegian media -- although the relationship
of those conditions to Islam is still routinely underplayed, if not entirely
avoided.


Until recently, Denmark, with its far freer atmosphere of debate and more
sensible border controls, was almost universally depicted in Norway as a
deplorable hotbed of Islamophobia. Pictured: A Danish checkpoint on the

Case in point: on August 10, the daily Aftenposten ran a piece by Tarjei
Kramviken about an official Swedish report stating that police, during the
past couple of years, have been pursuing an organized campaign to "take back
neighborhoods from criminals who have set up parallel societies." But the
attempt, the report admitted, has failed. Instead, even more such
neighborhoods have sprung up, and the level of violence within them has
become more common, more brutal, and more spontaneous. If a police car
crosses the invisible border, it is pelted with rocks or bottles.

The neighborhoods in question are, of course, Muslim neighborhoods, and the
criminals are Muslims. Although the persons in question are indeed
criminals -- they carry guns, sell drugs, commit burglaries, and break out
into the occasional riot -- the use of the word criminals seems somewhat
euphemistic. We are not talking about some kind of Mafia that has moved into
certain neighborhoods, taken them over, and terrorized the locals. The
criminals are the locals. They are the young men who live there. Maybe not
every last young man, but a high percentage of them. Some of these
criminals, moreover, are mere children. One Stockholm cop told Kramviken
about "five-year-olds who give the finger to the police and say nasty
things."

What we are talking about here, needless to say, is not conventional crime
and run-of-the-mill perpetrators but the violent psychopathology associated
with a certain religion. We are also talking about the notorious "no-go
zones." Until recently, the very notion that some European neighborhoods
were "no-go" zones was vehemently dismissed by politicians and commentators
on both sides of the Atlantic as a myth, a lie, a vicious right-wing
calumny. But even as Swedish officials were denying the existence of such
zones in their own country, they were secretly mapping them out and
overseeing a police effort to liberate them.

To be sure, they don't call them "no-go zones." Just as the British media
refer euphemistically to "Asian neighborhoods," Swedish officials label such
heavily Muslim areas as Rinkeby in Stockholm, Rosengård in Malmö, and
Biskopsgården in Gothenburg as "vulnerable areas" and "especially vulnerable
areas." Aftenposten's Kramviken, while frank about the nature and level of
criminal activities in these areas, is careful to skirt the issue of Islam.
The word appears nowhere in his article; instead, he focuses on the Muslim
neighborhoods' low rates of education and employment and high levels of
disability claims and long-term sick leave.

Kramviken's piece came a little over a week after a commentary by
Aftenposten's editor-in-chief, Harald Stanghelle, who claimed to have
noticed a rapid shift in Sweden's public-debate climate over the last year
or so, particularly as regards the topic of immigration. Suddenly,
mainstream Swedish politicians are talking positively about "Swedish values"
and listening to the concerns of ordinary Swedes; Åsa Linderborg, a leftist
editor at Sweden's daily Aftonbladet, has actually apologized for calling
Norway's Progress Party "fascist" because of its support for immigration
reform. Stanghelle attributed this sea change to the current refugee crisis,
the votes for Brexit and Trump, and the growing success at the polls of the
officially reviled anti-mass-immigration Sweden Democrats Party.

Well, one thing is true: the Sweden Democrats are on the rise because voters
finally grasp the extent and significance of the damage their elites have
been doing to their country -- and the elites, both in the media and in
government, are scrambling to snap into line in order to keep hold on power.
What Stanghelle does not mention is that the same exact shift is taking
place, on a smaller scale, in Norway. One example of this shift is
Stanghelle's own essay, in which he writes with apparent approval of what he
depicts as the Swedish establishment's increasing openness to critics of
uncontrolled immigration -- even as he ignores the massive role that the
Norwegian media, including Aftenposten, have played in the creating the
disaster for which that immigration is responsible.

There is one word that is at the very heart of what Stanghelle is writing
about but that (as with Kramviken) appears not once in his piece: namely,
Islam. For years, Stanghelle's own rag has systematically whitewashed, and
outright celebrated, the "religion of peace." even as it has mendaciously
and malignantly demonized its critics. In some ways, the winds in
Scandinavia may be turning, but it does not seem as if Stanghelle and his
ilk are about to speak the whole truth about Islam, or to apologize for
their inexcusable abuse of those who have.
