Rioting in Sweden

Sweden Riots, 2013


Sweden keeps having rioting:

May 24, 2013

Until Thursday, Rinkeby had escaped the rioting that has inflamed nearby Husby every night this week. But it has now spread from there to more than a dozen suburbs of the Swedish capital. By Friday, Stockholm police said that they had arrested 29 people this week.

Ethnically, “this is a very divided city”, observes Arne Ruth, a journalist and commentator. “The centre may look cosmopolitan but then people go home to very different neighbourhoods. It is not a planned segregation; it is segregation as a result of being unaware of the consequences of not planning for it.”

As Abdulrakhim, a 56-year-old Husby resident who came from Morocco in 1976, puts it: “I don’t see segregation, just people who want to segregate themselves. There is hatred between the rich Swedish community and the poor black areas.”

Abdul, an immigrant from Tunisia, says the gulf between the two worlds is epitomised by the schools.

Stockholm police called in reinforcements from across Sweden to quell a possible sixth straight night of riots in the country’s capital.

The nightly unrest led Britain’s Foreign Office and the United States embassy on Friday to warn their nationals against travelling to the affected areas.

“We will be getting reinforcements from Gothenburg and Malmoe tonight,” police spokesman Kjell Lindgren said, naming the country’s next two largest cities.

Nearly 30 people have been arrested, and a few officers have received minor injuries, said Kjell Lindgren, a spokesman for Stockholm police.

He said police would more than double their deployment in riot-torn areas to about 350 officers Friday night, including reinforcements from other parts of the country. Lindgren added that the violence appeared to be waning after peaking earlier in the week, when the situation had grown “rather wild.”…

The unrest has raised uncomfortable questions in a once-homogeneous society now dealing with a relatively recent influx of immigrants, many of them from war-ravaged countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq. Anti-immigrant sentiment is on the rise and has become a political force in the far-right Swedish Democrats party.

The proximate cause of the rioting was the May 13 death of a man in his late 60s in the Husby district of Stockholm, a predominantly immigrant community where unemployment runs higher than the national average. Police say the man had threatened people on the street with a machete-like weapon and then continued to pose a danger after going inside an apartment building, where officers shot him.,0,4247307.story

Sweden also had problems in the past, but this rioting may have a major effect on the nation.

For quite some time, I have been warning that it is highly likely that riots and civil unrest likely involving a combination of Islamic and economic issues would happen (e.g. Alleged Norwegien Terrorist Wants European Civil War).  They will later propel a European leader to rise up. The final leader will be the one known as the Beast (Revelation 13:3-4) and final King of the North (Daniel 11:22-44) of Bible prophecy.

Additionally, about four years ago, I wrote :

The Bible shows that prior to the real age of peace, a warring ecumenical religion  will take over much of the world through force and economic blackmail (Revelation 13:2–17).  And this is warring age will come to an abrupt end when God orchestrates it (Revelation 18:17–20)…

Some believe that God will punish the nominal Catholics with civil unrest and war in Europe. As there already has been civil unrest in Europe (and according to secular sources, more is expected), it is possible that the following (to some degree) also may come to pass:..

Monk Hilarion (15th century): “The people of the peninsula of Europe will suffer by needless wars…”

Brother Louis Rocco (19th century): “All over Europe there will rage terrible civil wars…A Great Monarch will arise after a period of terrible wars and persecutions in Europe.”

Some believe this civil unrest will result in the rise of a militaristic leader who will quell that particular violence, establish a new religious order, and reign with a pope who will perform miracles…

One interesting 15th century Catholic prophecy foretells a time when a “great prince” will rise up. “All Germany” will apparently convert to the ecumenical religion, and then massive conversions in “all countries” “will happen quickly…

The descriptions of the Great Monarch/Prince in many ways parallel the description of one the Bible refers to as the “prince” in Daniel 9:26–27, final “King of the North” in Daniel 11:27–45…

World events are aligning with prophecy.

As I have been writing for years, there will be ups and downs in Europe until the final European beast power rises up.  And there will be ethnic and religious tension.

The Bible is clear that although there will be problems with the unnatural combination that we now call Europe, that it still will rise up. Notice:

40 And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. 41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. 45 Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold — the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure. (Daniel 2:40-45)

Notice that according to what it written in the Book of Daniel, a kingdom will arise that does not adhere well together–yet that it is certain to rise up anyway. Also notice that afterwards, the Kingdom of God will come and that the kingdoms of the world will be destroyed–and that is sure.

The types of protests and riots in Greece, and other parts of Europe, will likely have ups and downs.  The terror in Norway also has shown that unexpected events can occur almost anywhere in Europe. And it is almost certain that because of protests and other forms of civil unrest, that the Europeans will ultimately be more willing to accept the type of militaristic leader that the Bible teaches will lead the final beast empire (Revelation 13:1-4).

And this is despite the fact that to the outside world (as well as to Europeans themselves) the rise of the final Beast power will be partly strong and partly fragile. Many see Europe as fragile, and while they have a point, the Bible indicates that final human kingdom will rise up anyway (though the Kingdom of God will ultimately replace it).
