SWEDEN. Pettersberg is an area in Västerås that is very segregated and now salafists from heavily militant familys, groups and clans are spreading and taking control there. It’s becoming the salafist centre of Sweden. The study from the National Defence College show this and the police say that reality is just as bad as the report says.
This group of Muslims are forcing their beliefs in others. Staff in shops have been threatened because the salafists doesn’t approve of their clothing. They aren’t following what Islam teaches. And if the cashier is Swedish some think it’s ok to take groceries without paying since Islam teach that they are not allowed to deal with infidels. The Christians from Syria in Pettersberg are being threatened to move. Even children tell the Christian women that they are whores.
As so often it is the mosque that is the hub of it all. There are several smaller mosques in Västerås and they have also been a problem for the police. In Pettersberg they invite imams like Fekri Hamad, who is a hardcore literalist. He often leads the Friday prayer, which is mandatory and means that Hamad holds the weekly sermon. But the mosque claim that there is no preaching that encourages violence which I find that very hard to believe since the texts are full of hate. Here is a quote from Wikislam:
There is no place in the Quran where Muhammad commands Muslims to love people of other religions. By contrast there are at least three dozen verses that tell Muslims to fight against non-Muslims and about 500 that speak of their place in Hell. They are from each period in Muhammad’s life, scattered across 87 of the Quran’s 114 chapters.
The mosque in Pettersberg have a lot of activities for young men, many of them immigrants coming from countries outside of Europe. They take place during evenings and nights (!) and have a radicalizing effect. Hamad have ties to the ISIS-connected Råby mosque, that is now closed, and the imam Abu Raad in Gävle and together they are building a salafistic network in Sweden. Men from Västerås have fought for ISIS. These Muslims now wants to build a new mosque to replace Råby, but Västerås work hard to prevent that. They are funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iran and even though the Swedish government and parliament know about this they refuse to take action.
