The number of new Swedish citizens continues to increase at a rapid pace: so far this year, 25,000 cases of Sweden citizenship have already been distributed. As of today, the largest groups being granted citizenship are Syrias, “stateless” and Somalis, followed by minority groups from other Muslim countries.
“They had bats and sticks and rocks and steel pipes,” said an 18-year-old who identified himself as David. “They had everything. They were just coming in by the dozens. There were maybe 30 of them and eight of us. It was just a brawl. A bloodbath.”

In this Monday, June 4, 2018 photo, Amazon workers Nimo Hirad and Decqa Mohamed are among those at a press conference of East African workers who demanded safer working conditions at Amazon warehouse in Eagan, Minn.
Amazon has given in to demands from Muslim employees who requested various perks and work changes during Ramadan, which also coincides with Amazon’s biggest sale of the year.
According to Bloomberg, the fact that Ramadan was at the same time as Amazon Prime Day this year was “creating tension” among employees in “Minnesota’s Twin Cities region, where activists say Amazon.com Inc. employs more than 1,000 East African Muslim immigrants at four warehouses.”
Employees and other activists protested at the Eagan, Minnesota, delivery center, where they chanted in Somali and handed Amazon management a list of demands for Ramadan, which reportedly included a “call to curb their heavy workloads while they’re fasting and to let them take time off without penalty for Eid, the festival that ends Ramadan.”
Amazon announced that they would provide prayer rooms for employees at work and “would ease up on employees’ quotas for the duration of the fast.”
It has been revealed that a Somali male national, known as Hassan, was granted a permanent residence in Sweden despite being convicted of rape and numerous sexual offences since 2010. In his latest attack, he sexually attacked his new victim while he loudly claiming that he had a “right” to “f*** all Swedish girls” without being expelled from Sweden. And now Växjö District Court has given Hassan this right – in the latest judgment, he once again escapes expulsion.
In June 2017, The Old Continent published an article on the attempted rape of a woman then only know under the pseudonym of Esmée. After the ordeal, she was forced to do her own investigating to track her assailant, because the police were unable or unwilling. At the time, she was especially incensed by the fact that her assailant, Mohammed Kamaal M for Somalia, was given a residence permit two months after assaulting her.
Yesterday, I had long social media conversations with two Somali Muslim gentlemen from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I asked them about their goals for improving Minnesota and how they feel about being an American. I also asked them about the million dollar upgrade at Cedar Riverside public housing that Mayor Jacob Frey promised its majority Somali residents this week. After I was called a racist, a fascist, a bigot, stupid and old, here’s what else they shared with me. Nearly verbatim. Thoughts?
The city of Minneapolis may fire its police psychology evaluator because his tests screened out too many minority candidates, despite already lowering psych evaluations far below the national standard.
The July police shooting of Justine Damond triggered the city to scrutinize its psychological standards for police, with many claiming they’d become lax.
Psychiatrist Thomas Gratzer has run psych testing for the Minneapolis police for the past five years, and in that time, he has eliminated four of the five tests used to determine whether a candidate is fit to be an officer, APM reported Thursday. Now, Gratzer may get the axe not for gutting his standard, but for screening out too many minorities.
