This video is called Somalia – War Lords part 2.
Somalia for many years now has been the scene of terrible war. If you are not in danger of Al-Shabaab insurgents’ violence, then you are in danger of violence by Pentagon-supported government warlords, violence by Pentagon-supported Ethiopian invaders, or violence by Pentagon-supported ‘peacekeepers’.
No wonder that many Somalis flee this war. Some of these refugees die horrible deaths on their jouneys. Some reach countries like Sweden, where they suppose they will be safe.
In Eskilstuna in Sweden, refugees from Somalia have a mosque. But it turned out, on Christmas day, that these Somalis were not safe there from racist violence.
This 25 December 2014 video is called Arson attack at Swedish mosque leaves five injured.
From the BBC:
Eskilstuna, which has a large immigrant population, was the scene of clashes involving neo-Nazi groups opposed to Sweden’s immigration policy earlier this year.
From The Local in Sweden:
Five hurt in mosque arson attack

An arsonist set fire to a mosque in central Sweden on Thursday injuring five people, police said, in the latest of a spate of attacks targeting Muslims.
“Somebody threw an object through a closed window and afterwards a fire started inside,” police spokesman Lars Franzell told AFP.
“There were between 15 and 20 people in the premises.”
Refugee-friendly Sweden woke up to the reality of a new political landscape in early December when the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats brought down the government by refusing to back its budget proposal in parliament.
The mosque is located on the ground floor of a building in the city of Eskilstuna, some 90 kilometres west of Stockholm.
According to police, the fire started in the early afternoon.
Police said they were investigating the incident as a case of aggravated arson but had no suspects yet.
The five injured were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries including smoke inhalation, lacerations and fractures.
“There has been an intensification of hatred against Muslims,” Sweden’s Islamic Association head Omar Mustafa told public radio SR on Thursday.
In January unknown perpetrators daubed black swastikas on the front door of a Stockholm mosque and in December last year neo-Nazis attacked a peaceful anti-racist protest in a Stockholm suburb, causing three people to be hospitalized.
The Stockholm mosque attack was followed however by a love bomb attack when anti-racists decorated the door to the building with flowers. A similar response is being organized for Eskilstuna with a Facebook group urging volunteers to put up hearts on the burned out buildings.
“We want to have a society where all Eskilstuna residents can feel safe and included,” the group Eskilstuna United (Tillsammans för Eskilstuna) wrote.
I hope groups like Eskilstuna United will prevail over the spirit of mass murderer Breivik, in jail in Norway next door to Sweden.
Fascist murderer Anders Breivik has had HUNDREDS of letters intercepted by prison authorities who say he is trying to orchestrate far-right uprising from his Norwegian jail cell: here.
