    Sweden, seen by many American progressives as the model of multiculturalism and tolerance, has erupted into an orgy of violence as gangs of rioting immigrants took to the streets for a fifth consecutive night Tuesday in Stockholm. The latest reports indicate the riots are now spreading to the country’s two other major cities – Gothenburg and Malmo. Sweden, along with Germany, make up Europe’s two most generous welfare states. They are also the most welcoming of Islamic immigrants, more than a million of which have flooded into the continent this year from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and North Africa. The...

Greenpeace said it wants to buy the lignite plants to make sure further production does not take place. …

    Shall we try to figure out what the refugee story is all about? Specifically, if it has anything to do with Europeans', or Westerners' racism? In that perspective, let us imagine that the refugees are not Syrians but Swedes — blonde, blue-eyed souls with fellow European and Christian roots. Wouldn't that prove that the animosity towards the mainly Arab and/or Muslim refugees is all about racism? Be honest, dude: Wouldn't I be eager to help if the refugees turned out to be of fellow Scandinavian stock?

    The Swedish flag, with its yellow cross and blue background, originates from the mid-15th century and became the main symbol of Sweden during the second half of the 16th century.[1] Despite its long history, it is only in the 21th century that the Swedish flag is being challenged by parts of Swedish society.  It is a challenge that reveals much about the current discourse in Sweden.
