Swedish Prime Minister Goran Persson has
ís handling of the unrest in the country. We will look at what he says and
then ask him some questions.
Excerpts from the Local (http://www.thelocal.se/article.php?ID=2459)
"They have chosen a confrontational
route and it is hard to see how it will become a dialogue," he said.
Persson reserved his strongest criticism for
's interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, who described the rioters as racaille,
"I'm surprised by the choice of words, at the start and as things went on.
There is an implacability in the attitude towards the situation and I don't
think it will lead to a dialogue," said Person.
"It's clear that if you resort to
emergency legislation then it's naturally very dramatic, the like of which I
haven't seen in
in the last 30-40 years. It feels like a very hard and confrontational
Here are my questions for the Swedish
Havenít the French passed laws stating
that you canít burn cars or pubic buses or buildings? Why should there be a
dialogue when society has already decided that these behaviors are unacceptable?
Is it your position now, that, if the police find a murderer or rapist, society
should enter into a dialogue with him?
Why shouldnít the French be
confrontational with those who break French laws?
Doesnít it undermine a democratic
society when the laws of that society are ignored?
have this dialogue with - the rioters, the Muslim leaders, the
, Bin Laden?
Mr. Prime Minister, lets look at what
you do in
? The Muslims stone a public bus going through their neighborhood-you reroute
the bus. What does that do? That further isolates the Muslim population by
eliminating public transit that Muslims in that area may depend on. How
does that help the Muslim population for you to reroute the bus? Then they stone
fire trucks and ambulances? Donít Muslim residents of your country deserve
public services? How does it help Muslim businesses to just allow thugs to run
wild in those zones? Isnít the problem that you are too willing to let gang
rapes of both Arab girls and Swedish girls go unpunished because punishing
them would mean a confrontation?
Letís face it. You and not Sarkozy are
the problem. Sarkozy at least gives a damn about what is going on in those
neighborhoods. He is trying to enforce the law. Have you ever heard of that
concept? You just sit back in your
damn office and watch things go to hell. Maybe you should at least try!
