Just last week a terrorist explosion tore through Sweden's capital city Stockholm. Luckily the only person killed was the Muslim terrorist. In Sweden, certain Muslim immigrant neighborhoods are considered "no go" by Swedish police as the Muslim newcomers have established their own societies while living off generous Swedish welfare. In Malmo and certain other regions in Sweden police and other political figures are quiet about violence by Swedish Muslims against Swedish Jews or else they join the leftists blaming the Jewish victims.
Well actually Swedish authorities are responding to this Muslim violence in Sweden--they are deporting Iraqi Christians fleeing their 2000 year homeland seeking refuge in Sweden because of murderous attacks against them by Iraqi Muslims in Iraq.
Sweden's migration minister has refused to respond to concerns from the United Nations and the Council of Europe about Sweden's decision to resume the deportation of Iraqis.
[T]he European Court of Human Rights is currently "inundated" with cases dealing with Iraqis in Sweden.
He urged Sweden to give the court more time to review the cases before resuming the deportation of Iraqis.
"It might transpire that requests of some of the returnees have not yet been dealt by the Court," he concluded," he said.
For these Christians, returning to Iraq might be a death sentence; just last month 52 Iraqi Christians were slaughtered in a Catholic church in Baghdad.
As Barry Rubin and others, such as Joel Sprayregan here at American Thinker have commented, all over the Muslim world Christians and other religious minorities are persecuted and attacked yet there are few world wide complaints.
As Rubin explained:
Christians are being assaulted, intimidated, and murdered by militant Muslims.
Yet virtually never do Christians in any of these countries-perhaps with some occasional exceptions in India--attack Muslims. In the West, there have been no armed terrorist attacks on Muslims or the deliberate killing of Muslims. There does not exist a single group advocating such behavior.
Have you seen any of this in the Western mass media? Have any Christian church groups-some of which find ample time to criticize Israel-even mentioned this systematic assault? Indeed, on the rare occasions that the emigration of Christians is mentioned, somehow it is blamed on Israel, as one American network news show did recently. (snip)The Catholic Church is quiet because it fears that complaints will increase persecution. Indeed, at a recent high-level Synod for the Middle East, leading Catholic clerics from the region blasted Israel and talked about how wonderfully Christians are treated in Muslim-majority countries. Iraq was singled out as a country where there were no problems in Muslim-Christian relations. Apparently, though, appeasement isn't working.
Presumably, much of the Western media and intelligentsia-along with a lot of the church leadership, assumes that it is impossible for a non-Western, "non-white" group to ever be prejudiced. There is also a belief that if one dares report the news about pogroms carried about by Muslims against Christians it will trigger pogroms by Christians against Muslims.
No, appeasement isn't working but the Swedish deportations continue with minimal outcry. Of course when the US or Israel attempt to deport violent illegals expect the UN to spring into action.
