Yesterday, I wrote “Maybe Europe isn’t ready to die.” But unless they deal quickly and firmly with this sort of thing (which France has failed to do for years), maybe I wrote too soon:
It is supposed to be the model multicultural state. But Sweden is facing problems of its own after gangs of immigrants spent a fifth consecutive night rioting in Stockholm.
Officers are battling to keep the capital under control after hundreds of cars were torched, a police station set alight and fire services kept from a major blaze by a stone-throwing mob of youths.
To make matters worse, rioting has now spread to Sweden’s two other major cities, Gothenburg and Malmo.
The disturbances, which have lasted longer than the riots in England in the summer of 2011, started last week after police shot dead a foreign-born pensioner who threatened to attack them with a machete.
At this point, if you don’t see what’s coming you’re being willfully ignorant.
