Sweden is preparing for a “civil war”: PM wants to deploy army in no-go zones

(ZERO HEDGE) — Tyler Durden

For the first time since World War II, Sweden is preparing to distribute a civil defense brochure to some 4.7 million households, warning them about the onset of war.

The booklet will serve as a manual of “total defense” in case of a war, and provide details on how to secure basic needs such as water, food, and heating, the FT reported. The manual also covers other threats such as cyber attacks, terrorism, and climate change.

“All of society needs to be prepared for conflict, not just the military. We haven’t been using words such as total defense or high alert for 25-30 years or more. So the knowledge among citizens is very low,” said Christina Andersson, head of the project at the Swedish civil contingencies agency.

The survivalist manual or better known by some as a preppers guide is called “If Crisis or War Comes,” will be published by the government in late spring. Its publication comes at a time when the threat of war from Russia is high, well, possibly, but that is what the mainstream media has conditioned many to believe.

What if the threat is not from Russia, but one that is domestic?

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said that Sweden would do whatever it takes, including sending in the army, to end the wave of gang violence situated in the no-go zones around the country. Sweden’s murder rate has been relatively low over the years, but thanks to the migrant crisis, police are powerless in many areas across the country.

“It’s not my first action to put in a military, but I’m prepared to do what it takes to ensure that the seriously organized crime goes away,” Lofven said after the party leadership discussion in parliament.

“But it is also obvious that there are social problems. Last year 300 shootings occurred, 40 people were killed. The new year has begun with new launches. We see criminals with total lack of respect for human life, it’s a terrible development I’m determined to turn around,” he added.

Even the Swedish Democrat leader Jimmie Akesson “declared war” against organized crime and suggested that Sweden should deploy the military to no-go zones to counter the out of control violence.

“People are shot to death in pizza restaurants, people are killed by hand grenades they find on the street,” Akesson said in parliament on Wednesday.

“This is the new Sweden; the new, exciting dynamic, multicultural paradise that so many here in this assembly … have fought to create for so many years,” he said sarcastically.

Peter Imanuelsen, an independent journalist in Sweden, summed up the recent developments in a timeline:

Government sends out leaflets to 4.7 million households telling them how to prepare for war
Leader for Swedish Democrat party says “A war is being waged on Swedish society”
Swedish PM is considering deploying the army in no-go zones. I think I am starting to figure out what’s going on here…
The Swedish government just talked about the possibility of putting the army on the streets to deal with the no-go zone criminal gangs.

To sum up, the Swedish government is preparing for a destabilizing event, while the mainstream media continues to use Russia as the scapegoat. Meanwhile, high ranking government officials in Sweden have echoed in unity that military intervention in dozens of no-go zones across the country is a high probability. At the same time, the government is preparing to hand out millions of survival manuals to their citizens indicating a destabilizing event is nearing.

Late on Wednesday we reported of even more chaos in Sweden when a hand grenade was tossed at a police station in Malmo, resulting in a “huge explosion” according to local media reports.

And lastly, while the three biggest political parties in Sweden urge for a military intervention in the no-go zones, the Swedish civil contingencies agency is frantically trying to print millions of survival manuals to protect the citizens for what appears to be a turbulent future in 2018.

Iranian protestors being tortured, killed and detained in prison

(AMERICAN MILITARY NEWS) — By Melissa Leon

Government protests in Iran might have calmed, but the two-week movement continues to draw international attention, as new reports reveal that protestors are being tortured and possibly even killed while in custody. And, many of those Iranians in custody are being held without charges against them.

One Iranian spoke to Fox News from outside Evin Prison in northern Tehran and said that people in custody are being tortured – “maybe tortured to death.” The Iranian is a 31-year-old activist and business owner whom Fox said declined to give his last name out of fear.

Amir told Fox that one of his friends was arrested “by plainclothes police at the beginning of the protests in Tehran. […] Then he was beaten badly. He said 400 to 500 people were forced into a room that should only hold 120 persons. They suffered all the torture – sleep deprivation, lack of food, all the things.”

Fox reported that Amir said conditions inside the prison are “beyond abhorrent,” and that prison officials are attempted to force detainees to film videos insisting they’re being treated well, known as “stage managing.”

“People are very concerned about the health of the arrested people. Mothers are there and they don’t know anything about their child’s situation, or even if they are alive,” another protestor told Fox.

Protests began late last year, on Dec. 28, in Iran’s second largest city and one of Iran’s holiest places, Mashhad, due to the country’s high inflation, economic policies and economic inequality, and unemployment. The protests have spread to more cities and the message has turned more toward regime change.

The White House Press Secretary released a statement on Wednesday calling for the immediate release of all protestors, following reports of torture and death.

The White House said:

The Trump Administration is deeply concerned by reports that the Iranian regime has imprisoned thousands of ‎Iranian citizens in the past week for engaging in peaceful protests. Further reports that the regime has tortured or killed some of these demonstrators while in detention are even more disturbing. We will not remain silent as the Iranian dictatorship represses the basic rights of its citizens and will hold Iran’s leaders accountable for any violations. The protesters in Iran are expressing legitimate grievances, including demanding an end to their government’s oppression, corruption, and waste of national resources on military adventurism. Iran’s regime claims to support democracy, but when its own people express their aspirations for better lives and an end to injustice, it once again shows its true brutal nature. ‎The United States calls for the immediate release of all political prisoners in Iran, including the victims of the most recent crackdown.

These are the biggest waves of protests since the nationwide protests in 2009 that the world watched through Twitter.

Geert Wilders: The worst is still to come

(SPEISA) — “Islam is the core of the problem, not only the radicals”. “Today, the whole continent is on the hit list”. Geert Wilders, leader of the party of Freedom, the second largest party of Holland, claims that Europe has to fight for its existence against the islamization: “the worst is still to come”

Geert Wilders’ office in the Dutch Parliament at The Hague looks like a bunker. In order to reach him, one has to pass several highly secured doors which can be accessed with special identified electronic keys. At the entrance there are 2 well trained armed cops and are licensed to open fire if necessary even in parliament. A camera is installed right next to them that record all movement all along the way to the office.

Wilders (53) is the most threatened politician in Holland and probably in whole of Europe. The Islamic terror, sweeping through Europe, has been a part of his life since he first started politics 15 years ago. His relentless way of voicing his defiance against the Islamisation has made him an enemy of a lot and also a representative of a significant and growing part of Holland’s population. The party of freedom became the second largest party in parliament after the elections back in March. The other parties agreed in advance not to ever govern with him. However, without his party they have been unable to form a stable coalition. After 6 months of negotiations, there might be an agreement in the coming days.

Wilders that became a key actor in the “patriotic revolution” in Europe -alongside Marine le Pen in France, Heinz Christian Strache in Austria- recognized how the traditional parties have been neglecting the most urgent matters, in his view, threatening the existence of Europe and feels that time is running out and might be too late the day he becomes Prime Minister.

Manchester, London, Barcelona, Paris- merely a part of terror attacks committed during the summer. Is Europe in a state of war?

Evidently it is. War has been declared a long time ago, 1400 years ago. In the past we succeeded to fight back. Unfortunately we have been experiencing in the past years numerous terror attacks. The root of the problem is the islamization of the West, there is no possibility for Islam to integrate and the goal has always been to dominate. The only goal is to attack our way of life and our existence. The elites have tolerated this and now we are not only in a war, we are also struggling with survival. Israel knows this problem very well. We are fighting for our existence today as well.

I’m on the hit list of al Qaeda and other terror organizations already for 15 years, but today we are all on this list and we witness this on a daily basis. I am infuriated with the politicians that made this mass immigration as well as the tsunami of asylum seekers possible. I’m not claiming that every migrant is a terrorist but they have ideologies which oppose freedom and democracy. They were never asked to adapt and today we see the results: total war, not only by people coming from Syria and Iraq but also by homegrown terrorists.

We didn’t reach the worst yet. In the next decades the problem will grow further. In Africa, there is a demographic explosion. According to the UN, a third intends to move to Europe. With our open borders we are incapable to fight for our existence. We are in a very difficult situation and our leaders are fully responsible for it.

Is the refusal to acknowledge the connection between Islam and terror part of the problem?

No doubt. The leading parties of Europe now say: Islam is not the problem, it’s the Salafists. As if we can talk about 2 sorts of Islam. What about the Salafi and Wahabi states of the Middle East that fund and indoctrinate people with ideologies in Europe and America? Saudi Arabia, the state in which Trump was waving with swords, is one of the most problematic states together with the rest of the gulf monarchies.

How much time is left?

Many researches have shown the Islamic influence on society. Muslims do not need to be a majority in a particular state in order to provoke major changes in regard to freedom, to violence and to the rule of law. In reality, we are late. We need to rise again and change this reality. We don’t have a choice. Our existence is at stake. People in whole of Europe realize what the effects are of islamization. People are afraid to send their kids to school or to the main cities. If we won’t fight, by the end of the century we will be part of the Arab world or of Africa. In Britain there are already sharia courts on Europe’s soil. This isn’t a tale, this is real, the situation is terrible.

The jihad rolls on

(UNDERSTANDING THE THREAT) — As everyone settles back into work and the daily routine after the Christmas and New Year’s break, UTT would like to give our readers a quick run down on a few jihadi incidents around the world and the United States in the last WEEK:

SPAIN
Four people were injured in Alaquas, Spain when a Moroccan muslim drove his vehicle on the sidewalk. Police ruled out any links to terrorism because the driver was drunk at the time. Lesson for jihadis – get drunk and then you can get away with jihad.

GERMANY
Berlin police called a Syrian muslim man “deranged” after he attacked several people with a knife “for no apparent reason” at a subway station on New Year’s Eve. The assailant called one of his victims “infidel” before stabbing him.

In response to all the jihadi attacks in Germany, German officials have announced social media websites, like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, that allow “obviously illegal” posts could now face up to 50 million Euros in fines. To be clear “obviously illegal” posts are ones that “offend” muslims.

AUSTRIA
Two muslims, aged 18 and 12 have been charged for plotting to bomb a Christmas market in Ludwigshafen, Austria in 2016. According to reports, the 12 year old, at the direction of the 18 year old, made the nail-bomb which failed to detonate as planned.

IRELAND
An 18-yr-old muslim refugee killed a man and attacked two others in Dundalk, Ireland before attacking police. Irish police are still trying to determine a motive.

ITALY
A 38 year old muslim refugee has been charged with attempting to rape a pregnant woman while she was in labor at the Sant’Eugenio Hospital in Rome.

SWEDEN
An explosion, from what is reported to be at least one hand grenade, ripped through a subway station in Stockholm, Sweden injuring at least two people.

ENGLAND
Recently released crime statistics reveal violent crimes in London, England have skyrocketed. Murder rates are up over 27%, robberies are up over 33%, knife crimes rose over 31%, and rapes are up over 18%.The mayor of London is a sharia-adherent muslim who has publicly stated England needs to learn to live with this kind of behavior from muslims.

VERMONT (UNITED STATES)
A muslim man with a machete seriously injured an elderly lady while she was delivering meals to poor people.

NEW YORK, NY
Authorities in New York are reportedly investigating photographs of an Islamic State recruit/supporter near the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Instead of spending the time and effort to shut down and bulldoze jihadi organizations and arrest Islamic leaders, officials in NYC announced the city is going to spend $50 million on “security infrastructure.”

WASHINGTON, DC
1. As UTT reported at the end of last week, U.S. Congressman Keith Ellison publicly endorsed the terrorist group Antifa.

2. Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) still has its headquarters two (2) blocks from U.S. House of Representative offices in Washington, D.C. and CAIR has still not been indicted for conspiring to commit terrorism, conspiring to overthrow the United States or any other crime for which abundant evidence exists. Terrorist walking free in suits in the nation’s capital.

CAIR is HAMAS

Swedish policeman: We’ve lost control and many have no idea how serious the situation is

(VOICE OF EUROPE) — Recently, Swedish journalist Katerina Janouch interviewed the Swedish policeman Peter Springare, who in 2017 made headlines in Sweden, when he posted on the current state of the kingdom on Facebook.

In a longer interview he now admits that he is even more worried, that mayhem in fact is coming, and that people in general have no idea what will hit them.

What do we see is happening in Sweden now?

– I am deeply concerned about the development. And I’m wondering how far it must go before people in decision-making positions and politicians wake up and see where we are heading. One continues to put the head in the sand. In Helsingborg, but also here in Örebro, one goes out and say we have full control. It’s the other way around, we’ve lost control. And in the next breath one says that this just spurts us, that we do not give in. That we’ll will work even harder. But that’s not the case either. Because I know how one is affected when exposed to threats. It certainly affects. It affects the police operations, both the business and individual police officers. And then the debate will be, is it worth it, should we expose ourselves … I know there are a number of police officers in Örebro who do not want to go to work for example in Vivalla. Because it is unpleasant. When we reach that point, we are in really, really bad shape. When the police end up in a situation where one is afraid to end up in an ambush, then it has gone very, very far and we are in trouble. To me, it’s a mystery how police chiefs to the public persists that we have full control. What do they want to gain?

(CNN) — Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed Iran’s “enemies” on Tuesday for stirring up unrest in the country, as the death toll from days of anti-government protests climbed to 21.

In his first remarks since the demonstrations erupted last Thursday, Khamenei accused the nation’s enemies of “joining forces” and blamed them for the protests that have turned violent.

“The enemy is waiting for an opportunity, for a flaw, through which they can enter. Look at these events over the last few days. All those who are against the Islamic Republic — those who have money, those who have the politics, those who have the weapons, those who have the intelligence — they have all joined forces in order to create problems for the Islamic Republic and the Islamic Revolution,” he said, without naming any particular country.

Key developments

– Nine people were killed on Monday, including seven protesters, state media reports, taking the toll to 21.
– 450 people have been arrested in the past three days.
– Iranian President Rouhani slammed US President Donald Trump for tweeting his support for protesters.
– Trump called the Iranian government “brutal and corrupt” in a second tweet Tuesday.
– Authorities have restricted the apps Instagram and Telegram but users are accessing them with VPNs.

‘Cowardly and criminal lynching of police’: France NYE mob attack on female officer caught on video

(BREITBART) — by Oliver JJ Lane

New Year’s Eve celebrations in France led to national outcry after footage of a female police officer being savagely attacked surfaced, among reports that over 1,000 cars were burned overnight and 510 arrests took place.

The female police officer was attacked alongside her male inspector in the Paris suburb of Champigny-sur-Marne by a large mob in the early hours of Monday morning, with both individuals being hospitalized.

In the footage widely shared to social media, a large group of African appearance males stand around cheering as a female police officer is kicked to the ground, taking several blows to the head. In other parts of social media footage shared by Front National member of parliament Gilbert Collard, men cheer as cars are rolled over.

Champigny-sur-Marne : une policière lynchée par “une foule”. Il est temps de réagir, s’il n’est pas trop tard ; plus de parole, mais des décisions et des actions répressives. Indéfectible soutien à la police. https://t.co/OIcxofJKqG

— Gilbert Collard (@GilbertCollard) January 1, 2018

France’s RTL reports the officers had become isolated from their colleagues while trying to calm a disturbance related to a New Year’s party in the Parisian suburb. While reinforcements were quickly deployed, with officers using “grenades and gunfire” to disperse the crowd, it was too late for the attacked officers to escape injury. Several government vehicles including two fire engines were also damaged during the unrest.

Champigny-sur-Marne, which is the home of three “Zones Urbaines Sensibles” — French government language for areas of extreme deprivation which are known in common discourse as heavily migrant-populated No Go Zones — is also the former home of suspected French Islamic State executioner Michael Dos Santos.

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke out against the violence on Monday afternoon, remarking: “The culprits of the cowardly and criminal lynching of the police doing their duty on the night of December 31st will be found and punished. Force will sustain the law. Honor to the police and full support to all officers crudely attacked.”

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards vow to crush dissent as protests extend into fourth day

(ZERO HEDGE) — by Tyler Durden

On the fourth day of “spontaneous” protests to sweep Iran just days after Israel, Saudi Arabia and the US reached a secret agreement to do everything in their power to destabilize the Iranian government by diplomatic means or otherwise, Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard Corps vowed to “crush dissent” and take tough action if the unrest continued.

Protesters “must certainly know that improper behavior will be to their detriment, and the nation will come out and stand against these actions and throw a hard punch in their faces,” the Revolutionary Guard’s commander for security in Tehran, Brigadier General Esmail Kowsari, said according to the semi-official Iranian Students’ News Agency late Saturday.

The threat from the IRGC came a day after Iranian authorities blocked the nation’s internet, interrupted the main networks, and restricted access to the country’s most popular social media platform, Signal, in response to one of the biggest shows of dissent against its leadership in years, in which as we reported yesterday two people were killed in clashes with security forces in the western city of Dorud, the first casualties since anti-government protests erupted on Thursday. The deputy governor of Lorestan province blamed foreign agents for the deaths.

“No shots were fired by the police and security forces. We have found evidence of enemies of the revolution, Takfiri groups and foreign agents in this clash,” Habibollah Khojastehpour said on state television. Takfiri is a term for extreme Sunni militants such as Islamic State.

Protesters also attacked banks and government buildings and burned police vehicles.

Protesters defied the police and Revolutionary Guards who have used violence to crush previous unrest. The demonstrations could be more worrying for authorities because they seem spontaneous and lack a clear leader… Almost as if the protests were organized from abroad.

As Bloomberg notes, the rare public challenge to the government and the country’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, “has erupted at a time of deepened strains between Iran and the U.S. President Donald Trump has imposed additional sanctions on Tehran and threatened to quit Iran’s 2015 nuclear accord with world powers.” It also “surprisingly” comes days after we reported that “US And Israel Reach “Secret Plan” To Counter Iran”, and one month after Israel said it was “Ready To Share Intel With Saudis “Against Iran” Ahead Of Possible War”, and also a “”Bombshell” Leaked Secret Israeli Cable Confirmed Israeli-Saudi Coordination To Provoke War with Iran.”

Almost as if the events are connected…

Meanwhile, in another Twitter post on the unrest Sunday, Trump said, “The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism.” The president also added that it “[l]ooks like they will not take it any longer. The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!” Violations which the CIA may or may not have been itching to tweet it was sponsoring.

3 dead as Iranian protests spread, calling for end to Islamic regime

(JERUSALEM POST) — By Michael Wilner

Three demonstrators were shot dead by the Revolutionary Guard Corps as protests spread across Iran for a third night on Saturday, intensifying their calls for an end to the government’s costly expansionist projects across the Middle East, the corruption within its ranks and the Islamic Republic itself.

The demonstrations marked the nation’s first wave of serious public unrest since a violent crackdown by regime forces quelled dissent in 2009.

Marches that began as annual state-sponsored events for the airing of public discontent took on a different tone as protesters in more than 1,200 cities and towns called for the removal of the nation’s supreme leader, whose position of absolute power in Iran has determined the country’s fate since Islamists took control of its government in 1979.
The three protesters were reportedly shot dead as posters of the current supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, were torn and pilloried.

Supporters of the Islamic government characterized the protests as small, scattered and largely focused on high unemployment and a scourge of corruption that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is fighting himself.

Critics of the regime say protesters from 2009’s Green Revolution are returning to the streets with unfinished business – a reckoning for a theocratic dictatorship unable to deliver for its people.

While the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office had no comment on Saturday night regarding the protests in Iran, Public Security and Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan said they were no surprise.

“Iran is wasting billions of dollars funding Hezbollah, Hamas, the Assad regime and terrorism throughout the world, rather than investing in the Iranian people,” Erdan posted on his Twitter account. “It’s no wonder that many Iranians are bravely standing up and speaking out against the Iranian leadership,” he said.

The Trump administration warned Tehran not to arrest or attack peaceful protesters, as video emerged of the demonstrations featuring violence from Iran’s Basij militia and a heavy presence of armed forces.

The State Department said the Islamic Republic had robbed its people of its historic wealth, and US President Donald Trump tweeted that “The world is watching!”

Iran protests continue for a third day despite warnings

(BBC) — Anti-government protests have continued in Iran for a third day, with reports of demonstrations in many cities despite warnings from authorities.

At Tehran University, protesters called for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down and there were clashes with police.

Demonstrators ignored the interior minister’s warning that citizens should avoid “illegal gatherings”.

Meanwhile, thousands of pro-government demonstrators turned out for rallies.

These official rallies were organized in advance of the anti-government protests, to mark the eighth anniversary of the suppression of major street protests in 2009.

The current protests began in the north-east on Thursday over living standards and by Friday had spread to several major cities.

Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli urged people not to take part “as they will create problems for themselves and other citizens”, but videos posted online suggest that protests were held on Saturday in at least nine cities across the country.

The Iranian authorities are blaming anti-revolutionaries and agents of foreign powers for the outbreak of protests. The communications minister has also urged Telegram, a popular mobile messaging app in Iran, to stop “promoting violence”.

In the US, the Trump administration warned Iran overnight that the world was watching its response. Iran’s foreign ministry called the comments “opportunistic and deceitful”.
