Malmo, Sweden was over one quarter Muslim in 2009 and is on course to become the first Muslim-majority city in Western Europe. If you have read about, or seen footage of, arson attacks in that nation , chances are that the city in which they were occurring is Malmo.
The city has an enormous problem with crime. The overwhelming (And I am being conservative in that choice of word) amount of actors in these crimes are Muslim immigrants or children of them. Rapes and gang-rapes of indigenous Swedish women are so frequent as to suggest that the females of the native population are being treated as spoils of war. The postal service in the city stopped making deliveries in some parts of Malmo because the letter carriers were subject to frequent attacks. Firefighters will not respond to the scenes of arsons unless the cops accompany them. Native Swedes have fled the city in droves.

"Malmö — a city in flames
THE GANGSTER CITY: Malmö woke up after another night of burning cars. Five cars burned during the night in various parts of the city. Most Malmö residents hardly raise their eyebrows over such things anymore. The inhabitants are hardened, and they have been forced to get used to an almost chaotic situation. But according to sjuklövern [seven-leaf clover, the seven-party system], the only thing to do is to like this situation.
For the fourth time in five evenings, a car was set ablaze on Professorsgatan, Hermodsdal [Fosie, Malmö; Google Maps]. On earlier occasions, bottles and stones were thrown at rescue services, so they waited for the police before driving all the way to the car, and then extinguished the fire.
On Hårds Väg, Rosengård [Malmö; Google Maps], in the parking area next to the railway, four cars were totally destroyed in a fire (see reader photo above). According to an AP [avpixlat.info] reader living nearby, the fire was like an explosion. The car blazes have even generated an argument about whose responsibility it is to remove the wrecks."
"It’s not the army’s job to control the [Mohammedan] quarters,’ according to [French president] Hollande
‘It’s not the army’s job to control the quarters.’ Just as [interior minister] Manuel Valls did earlier that same day, the President of the Republic has swept aside a proposal by a socialist deputy from Marseille who had appealed for sending the military to fight against drug trafficking.
The PS [Parti Socialiste] senator and mayor of the city’s 15th and 16th arrondissements, Samia Ghali, spoke out on Thursday, during an interview given to La Provence, after a 25-year-old man was killed Wednesday evening with a burst from a Kalashnikov in the northern neighbourhoods of Marseille. Since the beginning of this year, fourteen persons have been killed in the city during such settling of accounts, and nineteen in the entire Marseille region.
‘Today, given the war-style weaponry used by the [criminal] networks, only the army can intervene. Primarily to disarm the dealers. And then to block the clients’ access to the quarters, using roadblocks, as in times of war. Even if this takes a year or two, it needs to be done,’ claims Samia Ghali in La Provence.
‘After another bloody summer, we need to speak up with the truth. I think the authorities do not realise the severity of the situation. The killings following each other at Marseille are becoming a national media attraction,’ deplores the deputy, whose arrondissements have just been classified by the interior minister as belonging to the zones de sécurité prioritaire (ZSP).
For her part, UMP déléguée générale Valérie Rosso-Debord assesses in a communiqué that ‘the statements made by Samia Ghali, who demands that the army be deployed, must make the state react. […] This city does not need symbols, but a real security policy which frees it from the track of delinquency and banditry it is on.’
The murder committed on Wednesday took place in Marseille’s northern quarters, in the city’s 14th arrondissement. The man was shot shortly after 11 pm on Boulevard Casanova [Google Maps], while riding in a black Twingo driven by a young woman, specified the public prosecutor Jacques Dallest on site.
The couple were waiting at a red light when two passengers of another vehicle shot at the victim from a short distance, riddling him with rounds from a Kalashnikov assault rifle. The driver, who was very shocked, ‘was only slightly injured by grazing shots. It is a miracle she survived,’ emphasised M Dallest.
Some thirty cartridges were found at the crime scene, where police officers began the investigation, protected from curious gazes by a dark blind, gathering the first witness reports. The man, who lived in the northern quarters, ‘was known to the police for various infractions,’ added the prosecutor. According to a source close to the investigation, the victim has been identified and had been specially indicted for activities connected to drug trafficking."
The attack took place at 6:20 p.m. in the Becker Street, which is part of the “painters’ district” in Friedenau. Here where the streets bear the names of artists like Cranach and Rubens live the Rabbi with his wife and two children. Neighbors who live in the same building are horrified. “We are shocked by what happened,” says a 68-year-old neighbor, “and in the presence of his little daughter.” The district is of middle-class style, but there are certain problems with an “accumulation” of Arab youths who live in a new block of flats in the nearby Dürer Square. The block near the Friedenau train station was inhabited by Arab families, whose children went in groups and were often aggressive. The worst times were some years ago, but then the inhabitants created the citizen’s initiative “Dürer-neighborhood” in order to make improvements in the district.
“Everything got better after the apartment house was renovated,” the pensioner said. This initiative ceased to exist two years ago. The owner of the trattoria in Becker Street, in which the rabbi is a regular customer, confirms that there are problems with the Arabs. “The rabbi is a peaceful, quiet and courteous man. Where do we live, that someone is beaten because of his faith?” the Italian restaurant owner asks angrily. The rabbi had dinner in his restaurant that night, and at that time he saw “Arab youths” walking nearby and lighting their cigarettes. He noticed nothing about the attack, because a hedge obstructed the view. “The rabbi ran towards me, he had wounds on his face,” the owner said. Dürer Square is one block away, surrounded by the railway station underpass, an Aldi-Market and pastel-colored apartment blocks

Jewish community sees an increased number of attacks
After the attack against a rabbi in Berlin, a debate on anti-Semitism and possible causes for the attack has erupted. The four perpetrators, who according to the police were youths of Arab origin, have not yet been detained. The Jewish community in Berlin announced that they are planning to develop their own data bank to register anti-Semitic incidents from 2013 on. “The verbal attacks against Jews have increased,” said Gideon Joffe, the chair of the community.
Rabbi Walter Rothschild spoke about a “new dimension”. He himself has been already attacked and also received insulting emails. Rothschild additionally reported that he no longer wears the traditional Jewish head covering (kippah) in public.
Finally, from Berliner Morgenpost:
Everyday hate against Jews on the streets of Germany
The brutal attack against a rabbi in Berlin has not taken the Jewish community of the capital by surprise. Anti-Semitism has been increasing for a long time. It is prevalent especially amongst Turks and Arabs.
Anti-Semitism amongst Turks and Arabs
As recently as August 7, a drunken man insulted a couple in Friedrichshain in an anti-Semitic way and threatened them. One year ago, a 13-year-old was beaten in Prenzlauer Berg because he was wearing a kippah. Some years ago several youths of Arab origin attacked orthodox Jews in Charlottenburg.
Just two years ago, the Jewish community pointed to an increasing level of anti-Semitism, mostly amongst young Turks and Arabs. The Foundation Amadeu-Antonio has for a long time labelled anti-Semitism as the main problem in “huge urban residential areas with predominantly Muslim inhabitants.”
The German-Arab Center sees the origin of anti-Semitism in the Arab countries from which the members of the Arab communities come. “The parents follow the conflict in their homelands daily, even when living here in Germany,” the director of the center, Ali Maarous said. They are furious about what happens in their homelands.
“This fury and the hate then passes to the children,” Maarous said. The center works on the task of educating young people. Youth have been told in numerous seminars to stay away from political disputes and to deal with them in a rational way.
