8/23/05 10:47 pm - sonja - Africans face steep unemployment

The unemployment rate for African immigrants in Norway is over five times higher than the rate for the country's population.

Registered unemployment among immigrants decreased by 0.8 of a percent point, from 9.8 percent in the second quarter of 2004 to 9.0 percent in the second quarter of 2005, according to a new report from Statistics Norway (SSB).

The greatest decrease was seen for immigrants from Eastern Europe, down 1.3 percent over the last year. For Norway's population as a whole unemployment declined from 3.7 percent to 3.3 percent.
Even though the downward trend is positive, about three times as immigrants are out of work compared to the total population, and fully 17.5 percent of African immigrants are jobless.

SSB reports that part of the reason is that there is a relatively high percentage of newer refugees than in other non-Western groups, particularly refugees from Somalia, who have not had time to establish themselves in the country.

2nd quarter 2005:

General population: 3.3 percent
Immigrants from new EU nations in Eastern Europe: 4.7 percent
Immigrants from other Eastern European nations:10.6 percent
Immigrants from North America and Oceania: 4.5 percent
Immigrants from Africa: 17.5 percent
Immigrants from Asia: 12.3 percent
Immigrants from South and Central America: 10.1 percent
Immigrants from Nordic nations: 3.6 percent
Immigrants from Western Europe: 3.9 percent

8/11/05 06:12 pm - sonja - Foreigners Flee Denmark

Copenhagen Post, Aug. 10

For the first time in 25 years, foreigners moving from the country outnumber new immigrants

Foreigners are finding Denmark a less attractive land to live in, new statistics suggest. For the first time in 25 years, foreigners moving from the country outnumbered new immigrants in the second quarter of the year.

National statistics bureau Statistics Denmark said 5,298 foreign citizens moved out of Denmark in the period, while only 4,983 moved in.

Most of the people who left Denmark were immigrants from western countries, national daily Jyllands-Posten reported.

The biggest increase was reported among US citizens holding residency permits in Denmark. Nearly 600 Americans moved out of the country in the second quarter of 2005, compared with only 200 in the same period last year.

The number of Somali immigrants fell for the tenth quarter in a row.

Radical liberal MP and spokesman on immigration issues Morten Østergaard, said the development was a result of Denmark’s strict line on immigration.

‘Not only are fewer getting in, but many are leaving Denmark as well. If Denmark is to attract foreign workers, changing the immigration policy is essential,’ he said.

The Danish People’s Party’s spokesman, Jesper Langballe, said the policy was need to restrict immigration from non-western countries.

‘But it’s regrettable to lose the Americans and Western Europeans, who can contribute a lot to our society. They’re not the ones creating trouble, but the Muslims,’ Langballe said.

Integration Minister Rikke Hvilshøj said she did not find the statistics surprising, given the government’s immigration policy.

The statistics revealed that the total number of immigrants and their descendants decreased between April and July, because fewer western citizens moved to the country. However, the number of immigrants and their descendants from non-western countries increased by 1,100 in the same period.

7/31/05 10:24 am - cwn_annwn_ - The Camp of the Saints by Jean Raspail

Have any of you read this book?

From the looks of the posts here I think its must read for most of you.

Here's my review.

The Camp of the Saints by Jean Raspail.-A novel written in the early 1970's Camp of the Saints is about France being deluged with an armada of slow moving boats containing millions of the worst that the "third world" has to offer and the ensuing reaction of the population to the invasion in the weeks before they arrive on the shores of France.

I believe at the time this was written Raspail in many ways meant it as an exagerated parody/satire of naive liberal leftist universalism but now things have gotten to the point with the brainwashing "white guilt" that so many whites buy into and the never ending flow of third world immigrants into North America and western Europe that that you could make a good arguement that Camp of the Saints is closer to reality than it is parody at this point in time.

But whether you want to look at this as satire or reality Camp of the Saints is a brilliant (and at times very funny) book and is probably the best "racial" novel ever written.

Oslo rape statistics shock

Two out of three charged with rape in Norway's capital are immigrants with a non-western background according to a police study. The number of rape cases is also rising steadily.
The study is the first where the crime statistics have been analyzed according to ethnic origin. Of the 111 charged with rape in Oslo last year, 72 were of non-western ethnic origin, 25 are classified as Norwegian or western and 14 are listed as unknown.

Rape charges in the capital are spiraling upwards, 40 percent higher from 1999 to 2000 and up 13 percent so far this year.

Nine out of ten cases do not make it to prosecution, most of them because police do not believe the evidence is sufficient to reach a conviction.

Police Inspector Gunnar Larsen of Oslo's Vice, Robbery and Violent crime division says the statistics are surprising - the rising number of rape cases and the link to ethnic background are both clear trends. But Larsen does not want to speculate on the reasons behind the worrying developments.

While 65 percent of those charged with rape are classed as coming from a non-western background, this segment makes up only 14.3 percent of Oslo's population. Norwegian women were the victims in 80 percent of the cases, with 20 percent being women of foreign background.

Larsen said that since this was the initial study examining ethnic make-up there were no existing figures to put the numbers into context.

"Meanwhile, it is our general experience that this is an increasing tendency. We note this by the number of time we need to use interpreters in the course of an investigation," Larsen said.

6/24/05 09:53 am - sonja - White powder sent to Swedish officials

Letters containing a racist text and an unidentified white powder were received Wednesday by a number of government offices and organisations across Stockholm, including the foreign ministry, officials said.

Police spokesmen were unavailable to comment on the letters but one police officer said there may have been as many as 10 or 12.

The foreign ministry said it had received "a letter that contained a white powder which was sent to police for analysis."

"The preliminary report from police was that the powder was harmless," foreign ministry spokeswoman Sofia Karlberg told AFP.

Swedish news agency TT said public service television Sveriges Television and the Swedish municipalities and counties office in the capital had also received letters.

The online edition of the Dagens Nyheter newspaper reported that the letters were signed by an unknown group calling itself Democratic Fight for Freedom Now.

Dagens Nyheter quoted police spokeman Ove Hagdahl as saying that the texts were "very hostile to immigrants".

According to TT, the texts included phrases such as "foreign race elements" and "Swedish right of occupation over Sweden".


6/23/05 11:26 pm - destroycreate - Yikes

MALMO, Sweden — Swedish authorities in the southern city of Malmo (search) have been busy with a sudden influx of Muslim immigrants — 90 percent of whom are unemployed and many who are angry and taking it out on the country that took them in.

"If we park our car it will be damaged — so we have to go very often in two vehicles, one just to protect the other vehicle," said Rolf Landgren, a Malmo police officer.

Fear of violence has changed the way police, firemen and emergency workers do their jobs.

There are some neighborhoods Swedish ambulance drivers will not go to without a police escort. Angry crowds have threatened them, telling them which patient to take and which ones to leave behind.

Because Sweden has some of the most liberal asylum laws in Europe, one quarter of Malmo's 250,000 population is now Muslim, changing the face and the idea of what it means to be Swedish. Asylum seekers may bring spouses, brothers and grandparents with them. Civil servants say the city is swamped.

"You have 1,000 students in a Swedish school. How many are Swedes? Two," said Lars Birgersson, principal of the Rosengrad School.

6/9/05 11:11 am - sonja - Mod Post ---

I'm going to be backpacking through Scandinavia for about 6 months, so I'm looking for someone that I can appoint to look after the community and keep it safe from trolls. Ideally, this would be someone that has the time to lurk around and keep an eye on things. I'm leaving at the end of this month. Any takers?

I won't be able to continue posting news until I return, so I encourage everyone to keep the community running. There are a number of reliable news sources that have RSS feeds here on LJ and elsewhere. As always, discussion is encouraged. I really hope that the community won't die in my absence.

Have a nice summer, everyone.

6/9/05 08:53 am - sonja - 8,200 new citizens

Bosnians, Iraqis, Pakistanis and Somalians top the list of new Norwegian citizens in 2004.

Last year 8,200 people received Norwegian citizenship, about 300 more than in 2003. Of these, 7,300 were former citizens of non-Western nations according to Statistics Norway (SSB).

Bosnia-Herzegovina was the biggest contributor to the naturalization boom, with 800 becoming Norwegians in 2004. Iraq was next with 620, followed by Pakistan with 570, Somalis with 530, Iran 510, Turkey 390 and Russia with 380.

Since 1977 a total of 163,400 immigrants have been granted Norwegian citizenship, 85 percent of these, 137,700 newcomers, have origins in non-Western nations.


6/9/05 08:50 am - sonja - Apathetic refugee children could stay in Sweden

Sweden's Aliens Appeals Board has advised the government to allow a 13 year old refugee boy who is suffering from a form of acute depression to stay in the country.

The decision has given hope to hundreds of refugee families with so-called 'apathetic children' who, in the most extreme cases, have regressed into a psychological state of total paralysis.

"The government is not bound by what we say but clearly there must be some weight given to the fact that a group of experts has this opinion," the board's director-general, Håkan Sandesjö, told Dagens Nyheter.

According to the appeals board, which has powers similar to those of a court of law, the boy needs long term psychiatric treatment. Under such circumstances he ought to be given permanent residence "on humanitarian grounds", said the board in its judgement. It also recommended giving residence permits to the boy's family.

The decision, which is being seen as an important precedent, starkly contrasts a ruling by the Swedish parliament at the beginning of April. MPs voted against a proposal granting asylum to the families of the apathetic children, leading to a storm of criticism and casting a shadow on the country's humanitarian image.

6/7/05 07:18 am - sonja - Muslim schools seek funding from Saudi "fundamentalists"

The Swedish Radio programme 'Kaliber' reported on Sunday that "almost all" Islamic schools and congregations in Sweden have contacted potential sponsors in Saudi Arabia. Many of these Saudi foundations ask for influence in return. However, an expert thinks the chances are slight that violent organisations will gain a foothold in Sweden's muslim communities.

Islamic organisations have received help from the Saudi embassy in Stockholm to find potential donors. Many community groups can only afford simple basement premises. But with Saudi money, they can build mosques.

'Kaliber' featured the Al Salam school in Örebro, which takes children from nursery age to Year 5 and receives between 150 and 200,000 crowns a month from an Islamic foundation.

In return for their money, sponsors often demand a seat on the board or the right to appoint imams or school leaders. Saudi Arabia practices the strict Wahhabi and Salafi traditions. Women are required to be completely covered and are not allowed to socialise with men outside the family. Men must have long beards and dress in the style of the prophet Muhammed. Music and art are banned.
