Law of the jungle: Fracas in Nigeria’s House Of Representatives // National Assembly
Swedish and International News
It’s not looking too good
I don’t know why in Sweden, there is an opinion poll almost every other week, a sort of fortnightly electoral barometer – like a fortune-telling yo-yo showing the up and down popularity trends, as if the Swedish electorate is that mercurial, being thus blown about by every little wind or gale – sometimes the gas leakage being attributed to some little thing that he or she said. So what would a tsunami said, do to such opinion polls – get Anna Kinberg Batra fluttering at 50% of what can be counted as confidence being reposed in her? And corresponding grief for Stefan Löfven… “My loss will be your gain”?
The past couple of post-election months we’ve got to understand that at best those figures are only temporary – ephemeral – like snowflakes and that when the workers (Stefan Löfven and Jonas Sjöstedt’s men and women) return from the industrial holidays, Stefan Löfven will probably be on top again…
We have today’s DN declaiming drastic figures for the decline in confidence for Stefan Löfven as if that little blip in itself should herald the next general election – so soon after the last one. In December when Mr. Löfven’s budget was defeated he (the PM) called for snap elections but the Alliance (the parties that made up the governing coalition – now in opposition) were not in a hurry to take any chances , not exactly cowardly – as Rabbi Sacks just explained in another context – expounding on this coming Sabbath’s Torah portion (“Too much fear makes me a coward, too little makes me rash and foolhardy, taking unnecessary risks. The middle way is courage.”)
So, where is Batra & Björklund & Annie Lööf’s courage? If their confidence & popularity trends enjoy an increase in good fortune will they show their collective courage by voicing some optimism and suggesting that Mr Löfven bite the bullet and call for early elections?
You may have noticed that I did not place the Christian Democrats (KD) side by side with the other three in the Alliance and this is because the KD are in need of salvation, dangling as they are at round 3% of the popular ballot. If elections were to be held today, they’d be in the hell fire or as the iconoclast would put it, they’d be in shit creek…oblivion…outta parliament… unlike the once bad guys now getting better every day, with our daily prayers…
About a week ago the Sweden Democrats were said to be at a record 20% popularity, Sweden’s third largest political party from 13% to 20% and standing head and shoulders over “the smallies” i.e. the Liberal Folk Party, the Greens, the Left, and the Centre Party. Of course the migration/immigration discussions and debates is the wind in the SD sails.
More seriously, other areas far beyond Götland:

“Wars are won by weapons, but peace is won by ideas” – Rabbi Sacks
One thing is certain: The more wars there are, the more quickly the Messiah will turn up…
The Shia also have this idea – that things could really get so bad that Imam Mahdi (alaihi salaam) will have no choice but to declare his presence.
If the Messiah (the Jewish Messiah) were to appear today, within a very short time he will probably be addressing the Knesset – and in no time at all Ban Ki-Moon will be demanding that he address a very special session of the United Nations.
The UN ought to be a good place for gestating such ideas and the Nobel Peace Prize committee too ought to be keeping a more open mind about such considerations because things are getting out of hand: Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi says that his followers must increase terror attacks this holy month of Ramadan!

I’m unspeakably incensed by such barbarism, feel that I’m acting locally, I just signed this Petition Protesting London Neo-Nazi March and Burning of the Talmud.
For Sweden, a topical question indeed since we have roughly over 200 people who have travelled all the way from Sweden to join the Islamic State Warriors:
Why join Islamic State?
Latest bad news: Aerial Drone from Gaza Crashes in Israel
Now, if it was the other way around, that an IDF drone had inadvertently been misguided by its compass and crashed into Gaza, you would be hearing some more misguided hullabaloo from HAMAS…

An equally important insight by Ingrid Carlqvist – and one can’t help but wonder about the Muslim Warriors returning either permanently or temporarily to Sweden after some jihadist actions in the service of Caliph Abu Bakr Baghdadi with the following intention

I must take up some matters that she has laid out in the above polemic that I strongly disagree with:
1. “Björn Norström notes that Sweden’s Foreign Ministry obviously has problems supporting the claim of Islamic contributions to civilization, for which Wallström says she has the “utmost respect.”
