The Swedish remind me of little hobbits. Mordor’s minions are running wild in the countryside and threaten an invasion of the Shire, and still its fat and comfortable inhabitants remain blind to the threat. What is it with these secular progressives, these self-described members of the “reality-based community” who refuse to accept, well, reality. A couple of days ago a suicide bomber exploded himself in the streets of Sweden hoping to take as many Secular Progressives with him as he possibly could. Luckily nobody except for the splodey dope himself died, but only because the device went off prematurely. There were emails warning of the attack in the name of Allah before the explosion, and emails giving credit to Allah subsequent to the attack. And still the Swedish prime minister– like a secular progressive hobbit in denial– refuses to accept that Jihad has come to their lefty Utopia.
Swedish PM “Not Sure” if Islamist Threats Connected to Stockholm Bombing
In an interview with the BBC, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said he is “not sure” if e-mail threats sent minutes before two bombs exploded in downtown Stockholm are connected to yesterday’s bombing which killed the attacker and injured two civilians.
The threat stated in part, “Our actions will speak for themselves, as long as you do not stop your stupid war against Islam.”
While Prime Minister Reinfeldt (the leader of Sweden’s ostensibly conservative Moderate Party) might not be sure if the e-mail threat and subsequent bombings are connected, an Islamist website is very sure. The website, Shumukh al-Islam, identified the bomber as Taimour Abdulwahib Al-Abdaly. The jihadist forum referred to Al-Abdaly as “our brother” and indicated that Al-Abdaly had “carried out the martyrdom operation in Stockholm.”
The Daily Mail reports that Al-Abdaly was born in Iraq, had moved to Sweden nearly twenty years ago and had attended university in England. The British daily also indicated that Al-Abdaly had a history of expressing jihadist sympathies posting videos concerning the War in Iraq, Chechnya and Guantanamo Bay.
So is Prime Minister Reinfeldt still not sure if the e-mail threats are connected to the bombings? He better not be because next time his people might not be so lucky.
