Feminist 'Hijab Solidarity'?
by Bruce Bawer
Europe is awash in dhimmitude, but Sweden is a case unto itself. There's something desperate and demented about the levels of dhimmitude on display in Ikea-land. In no other European country, moreover, is there so little pushback in the media.
As I wrote just yesterday, Sweden has the highest percentage of rapes in the Western world. And the problem is getting steadily worse. Given the progressive Swedish establishment's fondness for earnest rhetoric about women's rights, you might think this rape crisis would be a subject of deep concern in the nation's media. But no – it's a non-topic. It's unmentionable. And for one reason: because everyone understands that the ever-increasing incidence of Swedish rapes is directly related to the ever-increasing number of Swedish Muslims. And in Sweden, you can't talk critically about Islam. You just can't – not publicly, anyway. When the subject is Islam, nothing is permitted other than the usual mindless multicultural mantras.
I'm deeply aware of all this. Even so, I was taken aback by one of the big news stories out of Sweden this week.
