ESKILSTUNA, Sweden – In a nation where tensions have run high between some Swedes and the Muslim community, police are searching for arson suspect in a mosque fire on Christmas day, The BBC reported.

Some 15 to 20 were at noon services when the fire occurred on the ground floor, hurting five people, who were treated at a nearby hospital for bruises, cuts, a fracture and smoke inhalation, police said.

“A witness saw somebody throw an object through the window of the building, which serves as a mosque, after which a violent fire began,” police spokesman Lars Franzell told reporters.

Immigration policy has fomented fierce debate between the right wing, which wants immigration by refugees cut by 90 percent, while mainstream parties that want to continue a liberal policy. The populist party, Sweden Democrats, which has an anti-immigrant agenda, collapsed the minority governing coalition on Dec. 3 by blocking the budget, forcing new elections to be held in March.

In an August 2012 anti-Islam protesters rallied in Stockholm against what they see as the Islamization of Europe. Counter-protesting leftists clashed with police.

Muslims are having a worrisome impact on Sweden.

A 29-page Swedish police report details 55 neighborhoods controlled by Muslim gangs: The gangs attack Swedish firefighters, police, mailmen and others and rape native Swedish women. They also enforce Sharia law in these so-called “no-go” areas for Swedish municipal services.

Rapes have increased in Sweden so that it has the second highest number of rapes in the world at 53.2 rapes per 100,000 people, behind the south African country of Lesotho with 91.6, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime reports. The Swedish Council on Crime Prevention estimates that Muslim immigrants from Muslim-dominated nations are overrepresented in the 77.6 percent of rapes committed by foreigners.

Some Muslims believe their inroads in European countries with their enclaves are a prelude to Europe falling into Muslim hands and European women as their booty, according to Fiordman story on Majorityrights.com.

Another issue for the Swedes is that only half of Muslim immigrants are employed compared to the 80 percent of ethnic Swedes, putting a strain on the country’s longstanding welfare state.

    Most Swedes are barinwashed. I adressed that too, not only the Jews. Did you really read my post?

    Look at Professor Kevin MacDonald’s work on who was behind the 1965 immigration bill. Always the same…

    Yes, but who brought the Muslims? It isn’t Muslims. The root of the problem is that same group of trouble-makers who are always found when there is strife being created – selling out Germany in WW I, the Bolsheviks, the 60’s anti-White counter culture, or P*ssy Riot in Russia. Why is it always this one group and why are people so cowed in to pretending they are above reproach?

    Who cares about “Jews” being beaten up – they should be in Israel anyway. Why can’t you be concerned over WHITES being beaten up? Part of the problem is you are TRAINED and brainwashed in to not caring about your own kind. Stop trying to gain the approval of those who mean to destroy you – what sense is there in that?

    Muslims bring nothing but crime and trouble for those native to the country they immigrate to and the longer countries allow it to go on, the more difficult it’s going to be to undo.

    They didn´t find anything that suggests that it was arson or a firebomb. The Swedish media is fast to blame hardly non-existing right wing activists. Only thing you have to do to be considered a nazi or right wing activist is to criticize immigration, question it or even discuss it. There are lots of right wing people here if you see all criticism as right wing propaganda.

    As you said above: People are murdered by immigrants, churches burnt down. Rapes at a all time high, Jews beaten up and lots of “no-go” zones but it is forbidden to talk about that. Do it and you are a nazi-racist-moron to them.

    They say its 55 areas are ubder muslim control but there are hundreds where you visit with life at stake. Police can´t even go there with one car. they cant arrest people for crimes because they are afraid for riots and they are afraid of the politically correct media that always blames the police if they arrest a criminal if he also is a MENA immigrant. The polices hands are tired, their chief is a politically correct moron too. I feel sorry for them.
