Fjordman writes in today, calling attention to "the face of Eurabia" -- the Islamic Europe identified and explicated by the great historian of dhimmitude Bat Ye'or, and which has now achieved critical mass before our eyes.
Take Sweden -- exhibiting all signs of a police state that enforces ideological conformity on its citizens, most recently having imprisoned an artist for creating verboten artworks that reject establishment narratives on immigration and racism. Note: no such official example made of the gang of thugs whose beating with metal pipes sent a Swedish man to the hospital this summer for displaying an Israeli flag. And no such official agitation over the horrific rape epidemic suffered by Swedish women and girls by disproportinately Muslim rapists.
And so, from an Islamized-Leftist culture, an Islamized-Leftist body politic.
The Times of Israel reports:
Influx of refugess blamed for Sweden recognizing Palestinian state
Israel's ambassador to Stockholm says Muslims fleeing Middle east have an outsized influence on leftist parties.
Stockholm's announcement over the weekend that it would recognize the independent state of Palestine was influenced by the vocal and growing Muslim minority in Sweden, Israel's ambassador to Sweden charged Sunday morning.
According to the ambassador, some 80,000 Arab refugees came to Sweden in 2014, mostly from Iraq and Syria. The Swedish population as a whole, he estimates, includes some 700,000 Muslims. GIven continued Muslim immigration into Sweden, this figure jibes with the US State Department's estimate of five years ago that some 5 percent, or 500,000 of Sweden's population of 9 million, was Muslim.
“All this against a social-democratic background, which is pro-Arabic, pro-Islam and anti-Israeli,” [Ambassador] Bachman said. ...
Bachman said the Islamic minority in Sweden has an outsized influence on the new leftist Swedish government, which itself is a minority government which did not receive more than 42 percent percent of the vote in total and is formed of parties which “hate Israel.”
The Israeli ambassador naturally is focused on the impact of Islamic-Left animus on his own nation, but as Islam achieves critical mass in a Western society, it affects an array of other issues: internally, decreasing freedom of religion and speech, also increasing such crimes against women as rape and introducing so-called honor killings; externally, changing nation-to-nation relations, and more.
The moral of this cautionary tale? Halt Islamic immigration before it's too late -- before Islam achieves a demographic force which, equal parts blackmail and the democratic way, is able to institute sharia norms, then sharia, the mechanisms of dhimmitude.
Other signs of Eurabian Sweden show up in the new cabinet, which will include two Turkish Swede ministers: Ibrahim Baylan as energy minister, and Green Party MP Mehmet Kaplan as minister of housing and town planning.
And maybe minister of ISIS? Consider an argument Mehmet Kaplan made in a recent public seminar on "Islamophobia."
From The Local:
While the talk was mostly about Islamophobia, matters took a turn when [Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag] said that there was a problem with young Muslims heading to Syria to be jihadists, according to political scientist Stefan Olsson, who was on the scene.
Ullenhag's comment prompted a reaction from Kaplan, who said the jihadists were nothing to worry about and were similar to Swedish freedom fighters who joined the Finns in World War Two to fight the Soviets.
"Nothing to worry about"?
Nothing to worry about ... in Eurabia.
