It’s Time for Sweden to Admit Explosions Are a National Emergency
Police in Malmö have announced increased security measures around local police stations following a series of explosions in the Swedish city.
According to the prevailing ideology of the Swedish political establishment, this wave of violence, which is baffling to many European neighbours, should not be happening. A longstanding cornerstone of the country’s political conversation dictates that crime must be understood in socio-economic terms, and that welfare provisions are a cure-all against violence and social unrest. Yet Sweden is one of Europe’s most generous welfare states.
There have been over 50 explosions in Sweden in the last six months.
“The use of explosives in the Nordic country is now at a level that is unique in the world for a state not at war, according to police”.

This is a national emergency.
Church bombing in Sweden. The party rooms belonging to a Syrian Orthodox church was attacked. Last year over 870 churches were vandalized in France. Why aren’t anti-Christian hate crimes being reported in the media?
Early Friday morning there was an explosion near the St. Afrem church in Swedish city Geneta. This is the second time the place has been bombed, the previous attack happened in September last year. No-one was arrested in connection with the previous attack.
The church is a Syrian Orthodox church. The building that was targeted is the party rooms owned by the church, and are located nearby the church itself.
“Because this is the second time it happens, it appears to be a motive against the church, but it is hard to know for sure,” says Zakay Cicek, responsible for security at the church to Expressen.
“We are also glad that the explosion didn’t happen during worship” he adds.
The explosion caused material damage to the building, but thankfully no-one was injured in the attack.
There has been barely any reports of this bombing in international media, despite that this could potentially be a hate crime against Christians.
This is the sixth bombing in Sweden this week. Previously 25 people were injured after a massive bomb at apartments in Linköping. There has also been three bombings in Malmö, and one bombing in Gränby this week.
