Syrian regime missile strikes on civilians in Damascus? No.

Turkish military bombing civilian targets in Kurdistan? No.

Saudi rocket hits in Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen? No.

Taliban suicide bombings in Kabul? No.

All the above references are theatres of war in the volatile Muslim world.

The sites in the above photo, however, show the location of bomb explosions in Malmö. Malmö is Sweden’s third-largest city. Sweden is not at war.

Well, not officially. But internecine bombings, shootings, grenade attacks and knifings between rival Muslim gangs and against the general Swedish population are nowadays so routine that Sweden today ranks as having the world’s highest incidence of bomb attacks in peacetime.

The Left-wing Social Democratic government, however, is not addressing these issues – issues that even the police say they can no longer control.

The government is instead holding multi-party talks on how to contain the surging violence – while excluding the only Swedish political party that has never ever served in a government, and that has consistently warned about precisely this development. All the other parties involved in the talks have in recent years been in government and helped created today’s explosive (literally) situation.

There is no truth to the rumour that aspiring government ministers in Sweden have to demonstrate a set level of stupidity in order to get the job. Although it is true that the vast majority of government ministers do not even hold a single academic qualification of any sort. But their academic inability is pretty much an unofficial precondition for securing absurdly lucrative ministerial positions which come with absolutely no demands on performance, responsibility, liability or indeed attendance. The lower the ministers’ educational and aspirational levels, the less likely they are to question their party leader – because where else would they get such a well-paid job? They know full well on which side their bread is buttered.

Sweden, 2019. You’d be forgiven for assuming the image showed an ongoing war.

Because it is an ongoing war. It’s just a war no Swedish government politician is willing to talk about. Because “Islamophobia”, don’t you know…
