Two people have been killed, and eight seriously injured after attackers burst into a crowded pub screening a football game and opened fire in the Swedish city of Gothenburg, reports from Sweden say. It is not known if the casualty count is final.
Information from Swedish police warns that people should expect the death toll to rise over the next few hours. Witnesses described the shooting as having started extremely quickly and being over before aunybody understood what had happened. TheLocal.se reports that, in the words of a witnesswho was in the bar at the time: "I didn't have time to think what was happening. Then I saw that my friend was bleeding. I tried to stop the flow of blood as well as I could with my hands”.
Despite strict gun laws imposed in many European countries, the attack demonstrates the ease with which organised criminals and terrorist gangs can obtain high-powered assault rifles via criminal networks in the former Soviet republics. The weapons used in the Gothenburg attack, the motive for which has not yet been determined, are the same as the Paris Charlie Hebdo killings, and the Belgium Jewish museum shooting, among others.
Although no suspects have yet been arrested, police are reportedly saying the attack is an incidence of gang-related violence, which has been on the rise in Scandinavia, due to an influx of immigrants from lawless third world failed states. The apparent normality of such violence is summed up by the comments of one local resident who remarked that despite the fact "this is actually a quiet area” he admitted "there have been occasional shootings”.
According to Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, the conflict in Gothenburg, Sweden's second largest city is largely between a group of immigrant cartels, determined to capture the local drug trade. Over one fifth of all those now living in the city are immigrants, with some of the largest groups coming from Somalia, Iraq, and Iran. In Gothenburg and other Swedish cities, extortion of business owners by migrant gangs offering protection from other such gangs is becoming a fact of life for some, with police "powerless” to act. This is leading to 'white flight', an exodus of European residents and businesses from the cities.

Swedish writer and news commentator Ingrid Kristina Carlqvist, speaking on an internet radio station, said that Islamists and migrants "have already succeeded in introducing Sharia law to Sweden". Speaking to Breitbart London Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam, she explained that, because Swedish girls are becoming afraid to go to certain places where there have been rapes and attacks, key tenets of Islamic law are effectively being enforced.
Self-Loathing Sweden Should Only Welcome Persecuted Immigrants, Instead They Invite The Persecutors Too.
We have covered immigration problems in Europe extensively, but the European country that demonstrates how wide the gap between ordinary people and the ruling eilte has become is Sweden where the politically correct governing coalition's immigration and social policies seem to indicate the elite are engaged in a genocide campaign against ethnic Swedes
