Emergency Meeting Today Due to Continuous Arson Attacks in Rosengård

Malmö has become internationally infamous recently due to the rising number of anti-Semitic hate crimes which emanate from a fraction of the city’s Muslim population. The Malmo municipality headed by long term Social Democrat mayor Ilamar Reepalu has been large indifferent to this negative development.

 In Malmö, the majority of Muslim immigrants reside in one city district known as Rosengård. During 2008 and continuously during 2009 daily violent assaults against the Swedish authorities took place in the neighborhood. Today an emergency meeting is being held by the Swedish authorities as a response to the many arson attacks that Rosengård has experienced, and which show no signs of abating.
Arson has become part of the daily life for the residents in Rosengård. Many of the fires are set by torching cars in underground parking garages. Firefighters and rescue workers cannot enter this part of the city without police escort—this makes the area dangerous not only for the authorities, but also for the local inhabitants due to the lawlessness that prevails.

Just during this year, the local newspaper Sydsvenskan reported that Rosengård has been struck by some 25 arson attacks in underground garages. Sydsvenskan today adds this report:

Last Saturday firefighters received an alarm that two cars were on fire in an underground garage in Rosengård. Arriving on the spot, firefighters noted that there were two fires inside the garage, separated by some 100 meters. The police secured the location of the fire but were pelted with stones. After a while the situation became more strained.
-“We were given indications by the police that we should leave”, stated Southern Rescue Team Commander Torbjörn Krokström. At 00:52 the Southern Recue Team left the garage in accordance with their own guidelines for dealing with risks of violence. The fire was extinguished at that time and four cars had been destroyed. Due to the stone throwing, the rescue team was not able to stay behind for [site] control and airing of the garage.

As has been noted by the rescue team Commander Torbjörn Krokström, underground fires, even without the stone throwing, are a high-risk mission for a fire fighter. In such a fire large amounts of dangerous smoke and gases are trapped inside the garage and visibility is very poor due to smoke and minimal lighting, making their job even harder.

In Rosengård, it seems that this is the ideal way to terrorize the Swedish authorities. Set a car on fire, preferably in the most dangerous place possible and then attack both the police and the fire fighters that come to the rescue.

The problem of Rosengård remains a topic of contention in Swedish public opinion. Many, such as Magnus Ranstorp, the research director of the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defense College, argue that a radicalization process is taking place in the area, others say this is not the case.

What we know is that Rosengård remains a problem, not only for the Jews that are subjected to hate crimes emanating from a small but violent percentage of its citizens, but also for the Swedish authorities that are unable to stop the arson attacks in the area.  And if the Swedish authorities themselves are under attack , what is the future of the rule of law in Sweden?


  1. I wonder what would happen if someone started burning mosques? You morons, You KNOW the source of this is ISLAM. Stop letting them immigrate. South America is full of "cheap labor" that can take their place AND doesn't follow that horrific belief system.

  2. There was in fact an arson attack on the Mosque in Malmö in 2005. The Jews were of course blamed... Investigations on the other hand pointed towards that it was an insider job - especially since the police working with the case received threats. (
