Swedish Jihad Arsenal from the Balkans?

Referring to the video of the impressive arsenal of weapons uncovered by the Swedish authorities, a reader sends the following information about what is visible in the available footage:

The weapons in the clip at 1:00 are quite telling.

Swedish Arsenal

The weapon at the top is the M-56, a Yugoslavian copy of the MG-42 (the most common German SMG in WWII).

In the middle is a Slovenian (ex-Yugoslav) MGV-176.

At the bottom is an AK; an AK expert could check if it is a Yugoslavian variety.

Anti-tank weapons are also Yugoslavian, M-80 rocket launchers.

If the AK is one of the Yugoslavian models, the origin of all the weapons is clear:

In Sweden there are many Bosnian Muslim refugees, who were radicalized by Wahhabis. It could be that the weapons were seized from some kind of Yugoslavian mafia. The Serbian mafia operates in Sweden, but their origin is the former Yugoslavia.

The SMG-176 is very rare outside of Yugoslavia, and the M-56 is not common at all. M-80 launchers were exported, but such a concentration of Yugoslav weapons can’t be a coincidence.

The MGV-176 started production few years before the war, and it wasn’t big, but few copies did make it into the hands of Slovenian, Croatian and Muslim troops. The probability is that the weapon was produced by Orbis is very low, since their security standards were in place, but in war many weapons disappeared (they were produced by the Gorenje Velenje company before the war (MGV = “Machine gun Velenje”). Before the war they produced a few hunting weapons and MGV-176.

Given Sweden's near-total blindness to the threat that radical Muslims, and Muslims in general, pose within their borders, it is pretty safe to assume that this small weapons cache is merely the iceberg's tip.

Not even Britons have been lulled into such a dangerous somnolence like that of the Swedes. Their government's complicity in this treasonous mesmerization is pluperfect proof of why the death penalty needs to exist.

No, now you got yourself tangled. Yes, the M-56 pictured is a derivative of the MP-40 (aka "Schmeisser"), but the Yugo copy of the terrifying MG-42 is the M-53, which is a full machine gun a meter long and around 12kg weight.

Baron,

For some screwball reason, my computer (which is getting a bit "long in the tooth") won't play that video. Fortunately, my workplace can afford a newer computer system, so I pulled up GoV when I was at work. You are quite right; the Balkan connection is obvious.

Now, then, working entirely from memory:

In the upper left are two Uzi submachineguns. Note that one of them has a slightly shortened barrel. The Uzi is, of course, an Israeli design, but I believe they were also manufactured by FN in Belgium, and, if I remember correctly, the West German government also used them some years ago. Other nations, such as Iran, have also used and manufactured the Uzi..... however..... I seem to recall reading during the disintegration of Yugoslavia that someone in the Balkans was manufaturing "a line-for-line copy" of the Uzi. Indeed, there were quite a number of homegrown weapons put into production during that time, some abysmally crude, others quite nicely made. Without actually examining the weapons, it would be impossible to determine their origin, but it is certainly possible that they came directly from the former Yugoslavia.
It is a bit startling to see a Swedish M45. Commonly called a "Swedish K," this is a relatively simple design, so this could be a copy, but I don't think so. Note the "brass catcher" ( the cloth bag mounted on the weapon to catch the empty cartridge cases.) This weapon appears to "gen-you-whine" Swedish mil-spec! One can only wonder how they got their hands on it. Hmmm...perhaps security is a bit lax at Swedish military installations?
The scoped sniper rifle in the lower left appears to be Yugoslav and is a Kalashnikov scaled up to take a full power rifle cartridge. I believe these are made in 8mm Mauser caliber.
I'm not sure about the AK-47 in the upper right (the picture is very small on the computer screen) but based on details of the buttstock I think it may be East German.
I can't remember the name or model designation for the submachinegun just below it, but this is one of the "homegrown" buzzguns that went into production in the former Yugoslavia during the war. The internals are loosely based on the STEN gun.
Below that is a Yugoslav MGV-176.
This a loose copy of the odd American 180. (Believe it or not, it fires .22 rimfire ammo, but from a very large capacity pan magazine at very high rates of fire, the idea being to effect "target saturation.")
Below that is another AK. It looks like a Hungarian AMD (?) but if so, it appears to have been "customized." The outlandish muzzle brake is gone, as is the vertical foregrip, and the folding stock looks more like it was cannibalized from a Czech VZ-58.
The image on the computer screen at work was very small and dark, so I am uncertain about the rifle in the extreme upper right. It appears to be some kind of sniper rifle with black synthetic stock furniture, a large telescopic sight, and a bipod.

Note that these are all military weapons.

The problem is Europe-wide; our political and social elites are reluctant to address the issue of Islam in the West because they fear the process will spiral out of control. So they pretend there is no issue and thereby save themselves the trouble of having to address it - in the short term.
