Modern Day Religious Wars

People from Finland would prefer to live next to a rehabilitation centre for alcoholics than a mosque, a poll reported Tuesday. The poll, conducted by the Finnish policy research centre Taloustutkimus and commissioned by the Finnish news service Yle, reported that only 37 per cent of respondents would be willing to live near a mosque. The survey was commissioned to probe “Nimbyism,” which stands for “Not In My Back Yard,” according to Yle, and all of the questions were related to neighbourhood changes in service or community centres of some kind. Of the types of changes proposed — a mosque, an alcoholic rehabilitation centre, a mental hospital — the only one that was less popular than a mosque was a needle exchange centre for drug addicts, with only 27 per cent of Finns polled being amenable to such a change.

Anti-Muslim sentiment has been on the rise across Europe for several years. Due to mounting violence in the Middle East by the Islamic State group, as well as certain Islamist-motivated attacks in Europe, including the massacre in Paris in January that claimed the lives of 12 cartoonists at the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, many European residents have begun supporting anti-Muslim viewpoints.

We warned time after time that religious and cultural wars would escalate worldwide with Europe leading the way. The clash of civilizations is about to take a turn for the worse.  A new and more violent movement will gather traction in Europe. There will be almost no tolerance for religions and cultures that are completely alien to the native culture.

Far-right group’s poster campaign in Stockholm stirs outrage

A poster campaign by the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats at a subway station in central Stockholm has stirred outrage in the Nordic country. The posters plastered above the escalators at Ostermalmstorg subway station are directed to tourists visiting the Swedish capital and apologize for “the mess” in Sweden, saying the country has a problem with “forced begging” organized by “international gangs.”

Critics say the message spreads racist misconceptions about eastern European Roma, also known as Gypsies, who are begging in Sweden. Anger has also been directed at Stockholm’s public transport provider SL, which is owned by the city council and is profiting from the ads. Around 1,000 people gathered in downtown Stockholm on Tuesday to demonstrate against “SL’s spread of racism and the normalization of racism in Sweden.” After the demonstration, some of the protesters stormed the subway station and tore down the posters, according to local daily Aftonbladet.

“It is measly and cowardly” by the Sweden Democrats to target the Roma, which is the poorest and most discriminated group in Europe, said Sven Hovmoller, from the organization HEM which helps homeless European Union migrants in Sweden. Protesters also used social media to express their dismay at the ad campaign, posting counter messages like: “Sorry about the mess here in Sweden. We have neo-fascists in parliament.”

The advertising campaign comes amid a surge in immigration to Europe from war-torn countries in Africa and the Middle East, as well as increased support for far-right groups in many European countries. A recent anti-immigrant billboard campaign by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government has also been met with protests and counter messages. Full Story

Again, our prediction that Europe would change is unfolding right in front of our eyes. Europeans are closing their open hands and instead clenching their fists.  Soon such views will become the norm. We do not favor these developments or the aggression that is being directed towards other religious groups and cultures because a lot of innocent people will be caught in the crossfire. However, we cannot fight the trend, and we do not allow personal opinions to influence us or overrule what the trend is dictating.  Change is in the air, and this change is violent in nature. Soon it won’t be just the far right, but all parties will start gravitating towards this direction..
