Young unemployed Muslims claiming employment discrimination rioted throughout Stockholm’s suburbs for a fifth night, setting fires to cars and smashing windows.

The unemployment rate for young immigrants to Sweden is almost 25 percent for those 25 and under.

The violence seemed to have been set off when police shot and killed a 69 year old immigrant who came at officers wielding a machete.

Swedish journalist Ingrid Carlqvist told Russia Today

“The problem is not from the Swedish government or from the Swedish people,” the editor in chief of Dispatch International said. “The last 20 years or so, we have seen so many immigrants coming to Sweden that really don’t like Sweden. They do not want to integrate, they do not want to live in [Swedish] society: Working, paying taxes and so on.”

“The people come here now because they know that Sweden will give them money for nothing. They don’t have to work, they don’t have to pay taxes – they can just stay here and get a lot of money. That is really a problem,” Carlqvist added.

“The police could do so much, [instead] they have told the public that they mean to do as little as possible. But they could go there and use water cannons, they could not let people out onto the streets at night. There are so many things they could do within the law – but they don’t do it,” she said.
