Swedish teachers are concerned over Muslim students’ open hostility to non-Muslims allegedly learned from their extracurricular Koran studies.
Kent Karlsson, a teacher at a school with students from grades three to six in Borlänge, said Muslim students wouldn’t listen to him because he was white or a non-Muslim.
“… Students question teachers who do not have [a] Muslim background by saying, ‘I do not listen to you because you are white’ or ‘You are not Muslim, why should I listen to you?’” He said. “This occurs in all age groups, from six-year-olds to thirteen-year-olds.”
“It worries me if some of the children in the Koran school interprets that it is only Muslim men and women to listen to.”
The additional course-load is reportedly taking a toll on the young students’ performance as koran studies can be three to five days a week after normal school hours.
Other teachers who wished to remain anonymous said the Muslim students are not doing their homework or even passing because of the workload learning Islamic scriptures requires.
“… The children are tired and unable to do the maths or writing lessons they received at school. [It] is clear they miss knowledge,” says one teacher.
Karlsson recognized the merits of memorizing long texts, but was ultimately concerned with whether or not the Koran studies took precedent over his Swedish curriculum.
“If all the power is needed to learn these texts on the outside, and that the power is not left to work with the school that is mandatory, then I can say I’m worried,” he says.
Correspondingly, Swedish officials are on record with concerns that a “shadow society” is forming among migrants who refuse to assimilate.

Washington, D.C. – In what is sure to be a surprise to President Trump’s base, who generally don’t support further entrenchment in Syria — but not entirely unexpected — the U.S. State Department on Thursday announced that the president had authorized $6.6 million in new funding for the controversial White Helmets group.
A State Department spokeswoman announced in a press release that President Trump had authorized $6.6 million to continue what it calls “the vital, life-saving operations of the Syrian Civil Defense, more commonly known as the White Helmets.”
— Joyce Karam (@Joyce_Karam) June 14, 2018
“The United States Government strongly supports the White Helmets who have saved more than 100,000 lives since the conflict began including victims of Assad’s chemical weapons attacks,” the press release states.
The full statement reads:
The President has authorized the United States Agency for International Development and the U.S. Department of State to release approximately $6.6 million for the continuation of the vital, life-saving operations of the Syrian Civil Defense, more commonly known as the White Helmets, and the UN’s International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism (IIIM).
The United States Government strongly supports the White Helmets who have saved more than 100,000 lives since the conflict began, including victims of Assad’s chemical weapons attacks. These heroic first responders have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and continue to be deliberately targeted by the Syrian regime and Russian airstrikes. Since 2013, more than 230 of these brave volunteers have been killed while working to save innocent Syrian civilians.
The IIIM’s work is vital to assisting the investigation and prosecution of persons responsible for the most serious crimes under international law committed in Syria since March 2011. Their mandate, collecting and analyzing evidence of violations of international humanitarian law and human rights abuses will help ensure those responsible for these crimes are ultimately held accountable.
The news will come as a surprise to many, as CBS News reported in early May that the White Helmets had reportedly stopped receiving funds from the US government, and that the group, formally known as the Syrian Civil Defense, had not received funds from the US weeks. At the time, the halt in funding was thought to be part of a strategic decision by Trump to freeze a reported $200 million in funding for Syrian recovery.
“We are actively reviewing our current Syria assistance programs at the President’s request, including U.S. support for the White Helmets,” a State Department official, who also noted that the United States has provided more than $33 million to the White Helmets since 2013, told CNN at the time.
“The US jointly supports the White Helmets with other donors and we expect their operations to continue as a result of additional multilateral donations. The President has been clear that partners and allies should assume a larger role in stabilizing Syria,” said the official.
CBS News explained at the time that “an internal State Department document said that its Near East Bureau needed confirmation from the administration to green light funding for the White Helmets in Syria by April 15th or the department would initiate ‘shut-down procedures on a rolling basis.’”
Despite the contentions by the State Department, it is indisputable fact that the group only operates within al-Qaeda and anti-Assad rebel held territory. This distinction has led critics of the group to claim that the White Helmets effectively act as “first responders” for terrorist groups — and are not “Syrian Civil Defense” as they purport to be to western audiences.
Additionally, the White Helmets are not even a native Syrian organization. Founded in 2013 by James Le Mesurier, a former British military intelligence officer and private security specialist, the group is largely funded by the U.S. and UK governments.
In contrast to the popularized characterization of the White Helmets as heroic saviors, independent investigative reporting has described the group as less of a humanitarian construct and more of a form of propaganda/intelligence operation deployed as a Syrian Civil Defense, but which operates only in rebel-held areas, as a news means of employing western soft power in the form of information warfare meant to forward a regime change operation.
Ironically, just days ago, the Russian Ministry of Defense warned that it has credible intelligence that United States special forces are assisting the western-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) in preparation of an orchestrated “chemical attack provocation” involving chlorine gas to be staged in the Deir ez-Zor province in an effort to precipitate another round of U.S.-led strikes against Assad government forces and facilities meant to bolster a planned FSA offensive on eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
“Our intelligence confirmed by three independent Syrian sources says that commanders of the so-called ‘Free Syrian Army’, backed by the American Special Forces operators, are preparing a serious provocation involving chemical warfare agents in Deir ez-Zor province,” Russian Ministry of Defense Spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement released on Monday.
It’s important to remember that the White Helmets were the sole organization to present alleged evidence used to blame Assad for a chemical attack on April 7 in the suburb of Douma, which resulted in a U.S.-backed western attack on Syrian government forces and territory. Reporting on the ground from Douma subsequently debunked the veracity of the claimed “chemical attack,” with alleged victims testifying in front of the OPWC that they had not suffered any chemical weapons attack.
Incidentally, prior to the alleged chemical attack in Douma on April 7th, Russia’s Chief of the General Staff of Armed Forces, Valery Gerasimov, warned on March 13 that Syrian rebels were preparing to use chemical weapons— to be blamed on the Syrian government— as a justification for U.S. strikes on Damascus.
To give some context, Raed Saleh, the head of the White Helmets, in 2016, was blocked entrance into the United States by the U.S. State Department after being invited to receive in NYC an award by USAID and NGOs that the US government finances. Saleh was reportedly barred entry into the U.S., due to having been placed on the no-fly list by the FBI as a known terrorist.
Even Pink Floyd’s great and political activist, Roger Waters, during a recent solo concert in Barcelona, called the White Helmets a “fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists.”
“The White Helmets is a fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists,” Waters said. “That’s my belief… If we were to listen to the propaganda of the White Helmets and others, we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to start dropping bombs on people in Syria. This would be a mistake of monumental proportions for us as human beings.”
Despite the Trump administration giving the White Helmets the nod of legitimacy, there is clearly more than meets the eye to the group once you begin to dig beneath the veneer of propaganda fed to the public. The weaponization of purported humanitarian organizations and NGOs is clearly happening. Stay vigilant Free Thinkers!

Today, President Trump announced an aggressive new set of tariffs against China, setting a 25 percent import tax on $50 billion worth of â€œindustrially significant technologiesâ€� imported from China. In previous discussions, China has threatened to retaliate against such tariffs, stoking fears of a far-reaching and unpredictable trade war between the countries. US Customs and Border Protection is set to begin collecting the tariffs on July 6th.
A list published by the White House details more than 1,000 specific products that will be affected by the tariffs. It includes a broad range of components used in electronics manufacturing, specifically naming touchscreens, batteries, and electric motors. General components like transistors are also named on the list as well as more specific components used in televisions, cameras, and radio receivers. Fiber optic cables are also on the list, although most fiber optic cable is manufactured by US companies. Notably, the list does not include cellphones or completed televisions.

Earlier this week while most of the world was transfixed on the World Cup, the Trump/Kim handshake, or a multitude of other sundry events, Julius Malema, aka the Hitler of South Africa, was busy telling white people in his country that he’s not going wage genocide against them. Yet.
In an interview with TRT World News published this week, Malema said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.”
When the reporter mentioned that some people might view these remarks as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” but later warned white South Africans that “the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy”.
Malema is a prominent politician in South Africa and at the forefront of his country’s movement to confiscate land from white property owners and redistribute it to the country’s black population.No actual specifics about the plan have been revealed, of course.
So even if someone thinks this land grab is social justice, it’s at least reasonable to acknowledge the massive corruption that plagues South Africa’s government.
And presuming that a multi-billion dollar expropriation wouldn’t be fraught with graft is just plain naive.
There has also been zero acknowledgement that forced exprorpriation of private property would cause a wave of defaults on real estate mortgages, triggering a massive banking crisis and unforgiving recession.
South Africa already has a prime example about the economic consequences: Zimbabwe’s own land expropriation plunged that country into an economic cataclysm spanning two decades.
Yet these all seem to be irrelevant details.
Malema even went so far as to downplay Zimbabwe’s economic catastrophe, saying “You cannot [measure] the Zimbawean revolution based on the capitalist definition.”
I’m not sure what Marxist definition he’s using to measure success.
But we do know that two decades after land redistribution in Zimbabwe (which used to be considered the breadbasket of southern Africa), more than a quarter of the population is in danger of starving to death.
So even by the most basic metrics, Zimbabwe’s policies have been a total failure. Copying them is tantamount to suicide.
It’s truly astonishing that someone so dangerous and out of touch has been able to rise to power. And even more astonishing how quickly it’s happened.
A decade ago few people had heard of Malema. Now he commands millions and grows more powerful each day.
Swift, radical changes like this are common around the world, and throughout history.
In 1913, just a few years before the Russian Revolution, the Bolsheviks were a tiny group of radicals. Four years later they had taken over the entire country.
In 1928, the Nazi party was an obscure joke, winning a mere 2.6% of the votes in the national election that year.
Not even five years later, Adolf Hitler was German chancellor and had been awarded supreme power by the Enabling Act of 1933.
Point is, the world can change very quickly.
That’s why I’ve long been a strong advocate for having a Plan B.
It’s great to maintain a positive outlook and remain hopeful for the future. I certainly do. But sometimes circumstances don’t turn out like we hope.
Sometimes a tyrant rises to power. Sometimes financial markets crash overnight. Sometimes the most unexpected outcomes become reality.
Acknowledging these possibilities doesn’t make you a pessimist or an alarmist.
Rather, it’s rational and prudent to take basic, sensible steps to protect what you care about most, and what you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
For example, if you keep 100% of your wealth and investments domiciled in the same country where you live, you’re taking on unnecessary risk… especially if your home country is heavily indebted and legendary for civil asset forfeiture and frivolous lawsuits.
One sensible tactic would be to consider moving at least a small portion of your wealth to a different jurisdiction known for strong asset protection laws.
Another idea– some people may be surprised to discover that they’re eligible for citizenship in another country due to some long-lost ancestor.
Ireland, Poland, Italy, Spain, and a number of other countries all have laws making it possible for descendents of their nationals to become citizens.
And a second passport is a great asset . It ensures that, no matter what happens, you’ll always have another option… to travel, live, work, invest, do business, and bring your family.
That’s the whole point of a Plan B. You might not ever need it. But if you can prudently reduce your risk at minimal cost, there’s absolutely no downwide in having one. It just makes sense.
