Of course, you wouldn't know that it was ISLAMIC TERRORISTS to blame from the dhimmi media!
Two explosions in a busy shopping area filled with Christmas shoppers in Stockholm have killed one and injured two at latest report.
Excerpt from France 24 via the AP:
Sweden - which has so far been spared of any large terrorist attacks - raised its terror threat alert level from low to elevated in October because of “a shift in activities” among Swedish-based groups that could be plotting attacks there.The security police then said the terrorism threat in Sweden, a Scandinavian country, remained low compared to that in other European countries, and no attack was imminent.
Blazing Cat Fur’s headline is self-explanatory:
Muslims warned the Swedes 10 minutes before the explosions...Retaliation Against Muhammad Cartoonist Lars Vilks
Vlad Tepes has video and a translation of the email sent by Islamic terrorists to the Swedish secret services ten minutes before the bombing, “Just in case anyone thought just maybe it was done by disgruntled Buddhists or radical Catholic nuns…”
About 10 minutes before the explosions an e-mail was sent to TT, and also to the Swedish secret services (Säpo), where a man adresses “Sweden and the Swedish people”. He refers to the Swedish silence concerning Lars Vilks’ paintings, the Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan and says that “now your children, daughters and sisters will die as our brothers and sisters and children are dying”. – Our actions will speak for themselves. As long as you continue to wage your war against Islam and insulting the prophet and your stupid support of the pig Vilks, says the man. – Whereupon he encourages all Muslims in Sweden to “stop sucking up and debasing yourselves”. He ends the message with another exhortation to “all the mujahedin in Europe and Sweden”: – Now is the time to attack, do not wait any longer. Come forward with whatever you have, even if it’s just a knife and I know you have more than just knives. Do not fear anyone, do not fear jail, do not fear death. – It is not clear from the audio files if the man speaking belongs to any organization. But he states that he has been in the Middle East and asks his family to forgive him for having lied to them. – I never went to the Middle East to work or make money, I went there for jihad, he says. – Säpo has not confirmed the contents to TT or confirmed having received the mail, which contains sound files where both Swedish and Arabic are spoken. TT has not been able to confirm that the mail is related to the explosion.
This is the first time anyone has blown himself up in Sweden, ever. To think that this is a completely random act is just silly. And now we have a jihadist e-mail, sent 10 minutes before this completely unique explosion.
The car was registered to an Abdul T. http://politisktinkorrekt.info/2010/12/11/bil-exploderade-i-stockholms-city-en-dod/
Witnesses say the man shouted in Arabic before he died.
Atlas Shrugs is all over it, of course, and notes how the media is loathe to let slip that the cause of the death and destruction is islam:
The jihad has come to Sweden. When I was checking on this story the enemy media made no mention of the Islamic motivation or any connection to Islam.
Fröken Sverige writes me :Look at how yahoo reported this act of Islamic jihad on the West here:
Suicidebomber in Stockholm, Sweden, blow him self up while screaming Allahu Akbar!
But first he sent a warning to the secret police and to other islamists: Kill swedish people like Lars Vilks, kill the swedish people and their mothers and kids....
STOCKHOLM – Two explosions in central Stockholm killed one person and injured two on Saturday, causing panic among Christmas shoppers.
Police spokeswoman Petra Sjolander said a car exploded near Drottninggatan, a busy shopping street in the center of the city. Shortly afterward, a second explosion was heard higher up on the same street, and a man was found injured on the ground.
He was later pronounced dead.
Two other people were taken to the hospital with lighter injuries, but it was not immediately clear in which explosion they were hurt.
Rescue services spokesman Roger Sverndal said the car that exploded contained gas canisters.
Sjolander said it was unclear what caused the second explosion and if the two blasts were linked, but said a police bomb squad has been sent to the site
"There was a man lying on the ground with blood coming out in the area of his belly, and with his personal belongings scattered around him," he said.
"It shook the store that I was in," he said of the blast. "Then there was smoke and gun powder coming into the store."
"I saw some people crying, perhaps from the chock," he added.
Atlas has photos there as well.
All because some perpetually offended thin skinned islamic rageboys didn't like some artwork.
