Norwegian Authorities Still Covering Up Muslim Rapes

The Fjordman Report

The noted blogger Fjordman is filing this report via Gates of Vienna.

There has been a spike in the number of rape charges in Scandinavia in recent years. It has reached near epidemic proportions in Sweden. Although there are indications of a very high percentage of Muslim immigrants on the statistics, as it is with other kinds of crime, immigration is a non-issue for the political establishment a few weeks ahead of the Swedish national elections.

In neighboring Norway, there is an unprecedented rape wave in the capital city of Oslo. “We have to be realistic. A series of rapes have made Oslo unsafe during the summer,” says Brit Opjordsmoen from DIXI, support centre for rape victims. “When we know that there are rapists on the loose in Oslo, we have to listen to advice from the police. They are right in warning women against going home alone at night.”

Opjordsmoen thinks it is astounding that Minister of Justice Knut Storberget gives advice contrary to that of the police, encouraging women not to change their behavior. “Ideally, we can all agree that girls should be able to move around freely, but we have to be realistic. Society is not like that. Many girls are too naïve, we have to be careful and watch out. Several rapes assaults in a short period of time is unusual,” says Opjordsmoen.

According to the support centre, rapes are usually committed by a person known to the victim. The peculiar thing about the many rapes in the city of Oslo now is that they are rapes by ambush, committed by strangers against women on their way home from a bar or in areas with little traffic. “We have seen a dramatic increase [in the number of rapes],” says Endre Sandvik, head of the emergency ward. The number of rapes in Oslo this summer is more than twice as high as it was last year.

In a questions and answers session with newspaper Aftenposten’s readers, Opjordsmoen has some politically correct comments, saying that they don’t know what percentage of these rapes are committed by people with immigrant background, and that much of these speculations is just “prejudice.”

Immigrants protest in OsloWith all due respect, I’m pretty sure that’s incorrect. Just a few weeks earlier, Aftenposten warned that “youths” are in the process of destroying Norway’s capital city, Oslo. Upon closer inspection, it turned out that these “youths” bear a striking resemblance to the same “youths” with Muslim immigrant background that are destroying so many cities across Western Europe. I know Norwegian girls that have experienced harassment by gangs, and it almost always involves Muslims: Turks, Kurds, Arabs, Pakistanis, and Somalis.

A 17-year-old Somalian was convicted of the rape of a young girl in Oslo one year ago. The court stated that the rape was unusually brutal and lasted for several hours. The Somalian choked the girl for so long that the medical doctor who examined the girl said that she could have died. The girl is now suffering from severe psychological problems in the aftermath of the attack. The youth was sentenced to four and half years in prison. The sentence also included another rape, where his Norwegian-Moroccan friend raped a 13-year-old girl whilst the Somalian helped to threaten her and keep guard. She has been traumatized from the incident.

However, Aftenposten seems conveniently enough to have forgotten an article they printed five years ago. In 2001, two out of three charged with rape in Norway’s capital were immigrants with a non-western background according to a police study. Norwegian women were victims in 80 percent of the cases.

Unni WikanUnni Wikan, a professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo, in 2001 said that “Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes” because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. The professor’s conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West needed to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite: “Norwegian women must realize that we live in a Multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.”

The numbers published in September 2001 were discussed in at least to out of Norway’s three largest newspapers: Aftenposten and Dagbladet. A leading member of the Liberal Party (Venstre), Odd Einar Dørum, demanded that all the numbers should be put on the table: “A scumbag is a scumbag, regardless of skin color”.

From 2001 to 2005, Dørum was Minister of Justice, and yet nobody has seen these statistics since 2001. The number of rape charges in Oslo has continued to rise, reaching record levels in 2005. There is ample evidence of brutal gang rapes, something that used to be rare in Scandinavia, being committed by immigrants against native girls. For instance, 21st of July 2005, three men were charged with gang raping a 15-year-old Norwegian girl, who was dragged into a car while waiting for a bus at the bus station in the town of Fredrikstad. All the men were of “foreign origin”. Such cases have become almost routine. The only possible explanation for why we are no longer presented statistics showing the percentage of immigrants involved in this is that the authorities are covering it up. Usually, this would have made the media call for the government’s resignation. This has not happened, although I know several journalists have been reading the posts I have made about this topic, both in English and in Norwegian.

RinkebyIn Sweden, ethnologist Maria Bäckman, in her study “Whiteness and gender,” has followed a group of Swedish girls in the suburb of Rinkeby outside Stockholm, where native Swedes have been turned into a tiny minority of the inhabitants due to rapid immigration. Bäckman relates that several of the girls she interviewed stated that they had dyed their hair to avoid unwanted attention and sexual harassment. They experienced that being blonde involves old men staring at you, cars honking their horns and boys calling you “whore.”

A report from organization Save the Children tells of how being a young Swedish girl today means feeling unsafe. The girls are scared of being raped, a possibility that appears very real to them. Many girls are planning how to go home at night, how to pretend to be talking on the mobile phone, how to keep their keys in their hand to defend themselves or how to simply run all the way home. Both the fear and the choice of strategies indicate that many girls feel genuinely unsafe outdoors during certain hours of the day. The fear is well founded. A striking number of girls have experienced harassment from boys or men. Most frequently, the harassment comes from boys of the same age as the girls. Being called “whore” has become so common in some schools that several of the girls say the teachers no longer react to this.

TenstaTensta is a suburb in northern Stockholm with a very high concentration of Muslim immigrants. Actress Ylva Törnlund has visited several schools in Tensta, and was alarmed by the harsh atmosphere she discovered there. “The attitudes we meet in the schools are frightening. One boy talked about how girls should be f**ked to pieces until they bleed,” Törnlund said.

This trend is not exclusive to Scandinavia. It is the same all over Western Europe wherever we find significant numbers of Muslim immigrants. In fact, the number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations is so extremely high that it is difficult to view them only as random acts of individuals. It resembles warfare. German journalist Gudrun Eussner considers this to be “sexuality as a weapon against disobedient and non-Muslim women, both categorized as “unbelievers”. Against them jihad is the duty, and what to do with women “conquered” in jihad, this may be read in the Qur’an: they become slaves to be used by the victors.”

Pierre RehovFrench filmmaker Pierre Rehov states that: “A friend of mine is a retired chief of police, who used to be in charge of the security of a major city in the south of France. He reported to me that his men had to face an average of 10 rapes a week, 80% made by Muslim young men. 30% being what we call, in French, a “tournante,” meaning that the victim is being raped by an entire gang, one after the other, often during an entire night.” “He was astonished that, in most cases, the parents not only would back up their rapist children, but also would not even understand why they would be arrested. There is an instant shift in the notion of good and evil as a major component of culture. The only evil those parents would see, genuinely, is the temptation that the male children had to face. Since in most cases the victims were not Muslims, the parents’ answer and rejection was even more genuine: how could their boys be guilty of anything, when normally answering to a provocation by occidental women, known for their unacceptable behavior?”

According to Rehov, “I can see in any raping of a non-Muslim woman by a Muslim male a racist action, and it is high time for us to acknowledge and condemn it. The level of contempt towards non-Muslim women is the reflection of the level of hatred towards the society which creates equality between men and women.”

In Norway, it is probably unprecedented in the thousand years since the city of Oslo was founded at the end of the Viking Age that the indigenous population is being attacked on such a large scale for the sole reason of being white and Christian. And the government is doing… well, pretty much nothing really, except for hiding the problem as much as possible. This isn’t good enough. I have earlier called for the resignation of Swedish PM Göran Persson for his government’s total inability to protect a population that pays the highest taxes in the world. Perhaps the time has come for calling for the resignation of Norwegian PM Jens Stoltenberg and his cabinet, too.

If they want to stay in power, they should immediately double if not triple the amount of police officers in the streets, and they should end the Multicultural experiment and stop Muslim immigration completely, if necessary by withdrawing from the UN Convention for Refugees and other international treaties, pulling out of the Schengen Agreement and re-establish genuine, national and popular control over immigration.

We are tired of hearing nonsense about “Islamophobia” and xenophobia while our children live in fear of Islamic terrorism and our daughters cannot go home after dark out of fear of gang rapes by Muslim youngsters who view them as whores. The purpose of the state is to uphold law and order and maintain the nation’s borders and territorial integrity. Western European governments are doing neither, yet are busy with political censorship and interfering with details of our private lives where they have no business.

It’s time they are reminded that they are our servants, not our rulers. If they will not fulfill their duties, they need to be replaced by somebody who will.


The Observer said...

Fjordman, excellent piece as always.

The cultural differences between westerners and Arabs are simply too big to overcome. It’s very naive of our (Norwegian) government to believe that these differences can be erased just by introducing Muslims to our way of life. The Muslims will never give up their cultural identity. Neither would we (Christians) if we immigrated to a Muslim country.

I wrote a piece recently about the rape epidemic in Alanya, popular holiday resort in Turkey. The police officer who was interviewed in the newspaper article I used as reference, blamed the girls themselves. It’s food for thought hearing this from a Turkish police officer, a person who’s actually supposed to uphold law and order. Makes one wonder how the average Turkish male perceive this crime.

Megan said...

This post made me literally shudder.

The way these non-Muslim women are being treated is beyond outrage.

How in the world can so called liberal, progressive humans ignore and excuse this terror?

And I'm guessing that these girls can't carry any sort of weapon to protect themselves.

Why are the police not patrolling these areas?

I guess I just have a hard time understanding how a civilized society can accept such behavior? And a professor putting blame on the victims!?!?! Outrageous!

Zerosumgame said...

Help me out here.

I understand that the Norwegian media is overwhelmingly leftwing and a preacher of multiculti political correctness.

However, crime waves seems very difficult to cover up. Too many people get affected and their friends and family find out and tell others. And even if there is no published news, rumours will fill the void.

So my question is "How effective is the media cover-up in Norway?" Are most Norwegians really clueless about this crime wave?

Or do they know about it despite the media cover up?

And if not, if they know about all this crime, what are they doing about it? How difficult is it to get a gun illegally in Norway if you really want one?

In Russet Shadows said...

Where the heck are the feminists on this issue? Oh that's right, busy brown-nosing whomever's in power and leaving women to bleed. A falser breed of people there never were.

As for the rapists, jail is not enough for them. I think that rape, if proven in a court of law, should be judged the same as murder.

The eventual reaction against these Muslim "youth" will be violence. Mark my words. By shielding the guilty, the government is just creating a pressure cooker.

Frank said...

Why is the other Scott talking to himself? This kind of thing gives Scotts a bad name.

At least Fjordman is one of the few who realizes, even if he is loath to emphasize it, that Islam is only the immediate problem, and that floodgated multiracial immigration is the real issue.

Clearly things are not going as originally planned, and while there is some superficial assimilation going on around the fringes of western society, ethnic immigrants, due to the sheer numbers of them flooding in, are ghettoizing. The neo-liberals; the ones who thought up this whole thing while wearing rose coloured glasses and smoking dope in the 60s; feel that they have no choice but to forge ahead on the supposition that if we can't have racial harmony at least we can even up the sides enough to sustain a Mexican standoff between the racial camps. In a sense they are right: short of bloodshed there is no real solution at this point.

The trouble with Mexican standoffs is that sooner or later someone makes the wrong move. Just ask the soviet union. At least the components of the soviet union were left with homelands when everything was said and done. That won't be true of the west and its a damned shame.

Sooner or later, citizens will have to begin killing these animals.
Politicians won't act, the courts are useless and civilisation is being rapidly destroyed.
Just what will it take before people take the law into their own hands? Will they ever?
My feeling is that people have largely forgotten how to exercise freedom. And now it's too late.

Voyager said...

Obviously these miscreants should be physically castrated

Eventually Hosea 8:1-14 will take effect

KG said...

"... It's worse than what's going in Norway because it's sanctioned by the government..."
Well, seems to me that what's going on in Norway and Sweden IS effectively sanctioned by those governments.

X said...

Help me out here.

Easilly enough, if you know how to intimidate people. I repeat what I've said previously, most people work on the assumption that those outside their immediate known group aren't experiencing the same thing, because the government tells them this is how it is. They don't ask because, well... when was the last time you walked up to a stranger on the street and asked them what they thought about crime?

Most people simply want to get on with their lives. They do the best they can given the circumstances. Or, to put it another way, most people in the soviet union knew that it wasn't working, and that their government was corrupt, that the GRU and KGB tended to kill people for no reason, and that the gulag existed for people who stepped out of line. There wasn't a general uprising, though, because most people assumed they were alone with their thoughts.

As for guns, I think it woudl be relatively easy to get hold of a gun in Norway. Unlike some countries (I'm looking at you, "great" britain) Norway hasn't banned pistol and rifle shooting, and it's wild and dangerous enough that a lot of people need to carry guns for defence against the wildlife.

Fellow Peacekeeper said...

ScottSA : "...... floodgated multiracial immigration is the real issue." I'd take it further - it the liberalism that infects western society (both EU and US), that permits PC to flourish, PC that makes multiculturalism a value, multiculturalism that demands immigration, PC that prevents action against criminal immigrants, liberalism that prevents the victims themsleves takig a stand.

I'm very much with Lawrence Auster here - the root of it all is the liberal values, assumptions and viewpoint Western societies have internalized.

So when someone quotes : It is time to stop pretending that Europeans and Americans share a common view of the world, I say : Wrong! The differences in elite attitudes to power are trivial compared to the underlying illness all share.

Mr. Spog said...

"Europe is ... moving beyond power into a self-contained world of laws and rules .... It is entering a post-historical paradise of peace and ... prosperity ..."—Robert Kagan, who is elsewhere said to have "impeccable neoconservative credentials".

The problem with moving into self-contained fantasy worlds is that the real one is likely to intrude in shocking fashion.

I looked up Kagan's article to see if he was being ironic here. Nope. Later in the same piece, for instance, he says "The new Europe is indeed a blessed miracle ..." (referring to the apparent end of wars between major European states, which he appears to assume is to be credited to the EU).

For a discussion of the de facto alliance between American (neocon?) and European "globalists" exemplified here by Kagan, see this Serge Trifkovic article.

The Rendezvous said...

As a muslim, I find it disgusting to read an article involving our own muslims...

However, There is this notion that is getting worse...When a muslim, is invloved in anything BAD...everyone wishes to talk ill about Islam..Nobody talks about Christianity/Judaism even if Rape/murder is done by one of them..

"There has been a spike in the number of rape charges in Scandinavia in recent years. It has reached near epidemic proportions in Sweden. Although there are indications of a very high percentage of Muslim immigrants on the statistics, as it is with other kinds of crime, immigration is a non-issue for the political establishment a few weeks ahead of the Swedish national elections."

But do u wanna say, there was no rape in scandinavian countries prior to Muslims(somalis included) emigrating there..

eatyourbeans said...

Serge Trifkovic's article is dead true, and if I read him right, he is telling us to stop wringing our hands and to start sharpening our scythes.
All of you, are we going to sit by and let the scum below us and the scum above destroy 30 centuries of Western Civilization?
Excuse me, I must run down to the hardware store and see if they have any scythes.

KG said...

rendezvous, I'm not sure what part of "muslims commit most rapes" you don't understand, but my message to you and your mates is simple:
Stop breaking the law, adopt the values and standards of the country you live in and stop using your bloody religion to justify behaviour that is unacceptable among civilised people.
Got it?

Da Bear said...

There will soon come a time when a rape victims family will start killing in revenge. This is the Jihad plan for a religious war in Sweden and Norway. These left wing, PC, countries are falling into a trap. Only massive deportation will save them....look to Denmark for some rational thought.

To all free men....KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY!

Baron Bodissey said...

A would-be commenter had trouble getting his comment to post, and sent it to me to post for him. He said:

"Anyone not allowed to carry a weapon should carry a small can of Easy OFF Oven Cleaner (or something with a similar formula). It is lethal. The most lethal thing to hit a rapist with in the face. And the rapist will NOT be thinking about anything once hit. It is worse than death. You can get a small can and carry it with you. They are cheap. Put one in your car, purse etc.

"This is the best Anti-Rape Weapon on Earth and great for Women. Of course, you do not want to get hit with it!

"Every young girl in Norway and Britain should be walking home with Oven Cleaner. All it takes is One of the these Animals to get hit by Oven Cleaner and the news stories of the stuff eating off his face and melting his eyes will be enough to send the Mooslims back to where they came from!"

As a norwegian I have to respond to this.

First to all of you talking tough about "norwegian men not protecting their women" and all that crap. I am assuming most of you are americans. Ever heard the saying : remove the log in your own eye before noticing the splinter in others? How come rapes (per capita) by country is higher in USA than in Norway? American males can`t protect their women perhaps. Here is the link if you don`t belive me: By the way, if anyone got it bad it is the australians.

Despite all your hard-hitting laws and liberal gun laws (by the way gun-ownership in Norway is almost as high as in USA because of strong hunting traditions) crimes like rape are more rampant i USA.

Hah. How does that fit into your Euro-bashing?

Regards from a women-protecting norwegian male

Captain USpace said...

Excellent post, it's in, thanks!

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
rape is part of their culture

you simply must respect it
no matter how sick or vile

Don M said...

I submit that we should provide airlifts of smallish revolvers, so that the women of Norway can defend themselves.

That is the right response. Women can defend themselves, and the Rapists will not get a trial, or deportation to another country where they can further practice their art.

Rather, they should be shot repeatedly until they stop moving.

After a few instances of that, the entire culture will suddenly become more polite.

Captain USpace said...

I totally agree Don, great idea! Hopefully there will be a real underground re-arming of the population movement in Europe one day soon, these rapists need and deserve to die a most horrible and painful death, that is obvious to anyone but the most foolish or evil.

If the government won't make the justice system protect the people, then the people will have to exercise their God-given rights of self-defense.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
rape is multicultural

sick and barbaric cultures
allow them to rape at will

Hi Fjordman,
This comment might be 2 years late regarding your post " Immigrant Rape Wave in Sweden" Dec. 12, 2005. However, I think that this is still very much related.

You wrote a very good eye-opening article. I am not Swedish, I am living in the Philippines but I care about your country and I feel sorry for those Swedish (and European) women maltreated by muslim immigrants. I was in Europe for many years, travelled many European countries and lived with different people in Europe (Europeans, foreigners, including Muslims). It is very appalling to see how some immigrants, especially from Muslim countries take advantage of the hospitality of Sweden and other European countries and exploit the social structures of these countries. I strongly condemn rapes and disrespect of any form against women. But these are just symptoms of a bigger problem. The problem is: There is just too much of those "bad" immigrants in Europe. And these bad immigrants give a bad reputation to other foreigners who are there as students, intellectuals, businessmen, nurses and honest workers that are there in Europe to contribute to society.

I have had contacts with Muslims, some friends of mine are even Muslims. I was able to get into their minds and to know what they are thinking by befriending them.
And yes, you are right, most of them treat European (and non muslim) women like meat. And they think that Christianity and the European society (that, ironically shelters them from poverty) is their enemy. They will not change their ways, instead they want Europe to change according to their culture. Mosques are built and Islam quarters harboring hostility towards Europeans spread in major European cities.
Arabs overrun the city of Paris and act as if they are kings in Geneva.
(A form of retaliation because westerners dig holes in their lands and suck out their oil?)

Not all Muslims are bad, but many of them are.

Any religion that teaches you to demean women and kill for your beliefs is a bad religion.
