Sweden, I understand, does not allow for the use of pepper spray. I would hope, in light of the recent rise in crime, that this law may be changed.

Keep on telling the big lie, Stpauli, maybe someone will believe you. It's the Buddhists, Hindus, Christians and Jews who are beheading, conducting honor killings, making suicide bombs, slaughtering those who dare not to believe in their religion, raping the infidel women... Mohammad.

I truly believe that there is another nation (or a party) trying to use propaganda on The local to make people hate muslims. Yes, there are foreigner who commit crimes, yet so does Swedes. But someone is trying to chase muslims in every second thread to create some kind of hate or "we against them" society.

The best solution is to work together to solve a problem, not accusing one another. That is mussattacc's biggest fear.



I think the actions of the muslims themselves make people hate muslims.

Angela Merkel has been named as Time's Magazine Person of the year for 2015. It is interesting to note that, in 1938, Adolph Hitler shared the same honor. I wonder if history will prove her to be as destructive to Germany as Hitler was?

I blame the fascination of British males with all those soft porn films that came out of Sweden in the 60's and 70's. I remember seeing one at my rowing club in the 60's (we got to see a blue movie if we trained well). There was a girl and a young man in one of those old style closed train carriages on their way to a summer camp. It only took about 30 seconds for the girl to get her kit off and gobble the innocent young bloke. Considering how difficult it was to get into a girls knickers even in London in the swinging 60's, Sweden seemed like paradise to most of us sex starved students. rolleyes.gif



Interesting motivational technique.

I think that you need to work this out, personally, with your wife. Who cares what the neighbors do.

Make sure and see the Vasa Museum. My wife and I stayed at the Rygerfjord (a boat turned into a hostel) that was centrally located and was kinda cool.

I'm just amazed at how little to no attention boxing gets here in Sweden. I know that in recent years, there's been ongoing debates about it. But MMA seems to make more attention here, when it's just as violent and even more dangerous than boxing is.


Actually MMA type fights, with their mix of kickboxing as well as ground fighting, are less dangerous than boxing. Less repeated strikes to the head equals less chance at brain damage.

I fully respect your opinion,but what should Sweden do exactly ? People keep complaining but when it comes to details they leave the thread.

1. Who are annoying to Swedes?EU migrants,Middle east or all of them?
2. After deciding which immigrants are annoying and scum,what SHOULD Sweden do in order to protect its identity ?

I want to see a detailed answer with how the current immigration rules should be changed. I want to see an answer for each continent such as "we most change this and this for the EU migrants and this and this for Asian ones and this and this for the USA migrants.(i know usa isnt a continent per se)"

Can anyone do this on this forum ?


That's not a complaint. Merely an observation.

Whatever dude, fact remains you cannot stop the wave of immigration from africa, middle east or eastern europe. Even denmark has more refugees than ever and they are an anti-immigrant country.



Of course you can. Sweden just chooses not to.

I'm American. My country was founded on immigration (to the detriment of the native population). As far as I'm concerned, I am in favor of immigrants who:

1. work and support their family
2. follow the laws
3. assimilate into the current culture as opposed to trying to make the host country change to suit their culture.

By Swedes,you mean born in Sweden?


Again, Japan has a policy (this is my understanding from some friends of mine who actually lived there) of keeping Japan for the Japanese. If the Swedish people wanted to institute a policy of keeping Sweden for Swedes (born there or at least have Swedish ancestry) they certainly would be in their rights.

They do not and their culture is being challenged. The OP is bemoaning this fact, and I understand where he is coming from. Due to mass immigration, the Sweden I knew years ago has changed a lot and not for the good (in my opinion).

I agree the term "pure" is a bit unsettling and I'm not sure what the OP means by that. However, I would not have a problem if Sweden came out with a policy of "Sweden for Swedes". Japan does and no one give them any grief about it.

Anyone who uses the term 'I am not a racist' is probably a racist.

Anyone who used the term 'pure' when referring to population control is most definitely a racist...


Are you a racist?

I gave Sweden a year and that's all I needed. It's a beautiful place, nice people, and all that but the job situation is not good. Maybe you'll have a better experience. Good luck.

Intrepidox is right, learning the language will greatly improve your chance at getting a job. On average, it takes most people 2-3 years to gain fluency.

I did manage to get a job with a moving company w/o mastering Swedish but I think a lot of that was luck. If you are strong and willing to work hard, perhaps you could also find such a job with a moving company (flytt firma). But you would need a personnumber.

The reason why I asked you those questions, is because so many immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers come to Sweden with their hands out expecting a free deal. This has soured many people toward immigrants and such to the point where people who have a legitimate need for help are rejected.

As I said before, you have my sympathy and I hope you can find peace somewhere.

If you are allowed to remain in Sweden, Mr. Wolf, what contributions will you make to Swedish society? Do you have any relevant job skills, education and/or the ability to support yourself and your family? How do you feel about Swedish society? Do you admire the fact that Swedish women are strong and empowered, or do you find them repulsive and overly sexual? How do you feel about people who have a different faith than yours? Are you willing to relocate to the north of Sweden if that is where the job market is better?

Are you willing to honestly answer these questions? If not to me, at least to yourself...
