ADVERT:

Alarm calls started to pour in to the Emergency Services from concerned residents after the explosions in central Stockholm on Saturday afternoon. But the initial information from the police was very unclear, it described two car explosions, but later it proved to be only one.

“A car at street Olof Palmes gata has exploded, we got the alarm at two minutes over five o'clock PM. Two minutes later, we received yet another alarm about an explosion from street Bryggargatan some distance away," said Ulf Göranzon, at the Stockholm Police.

A man was found dead at the place of the second explosion.

Shouted in Arabic

Police bomb technicians examined the dead man's bag by using a bomb robot.
Radiographs show that it contained a large quantity of nails and an unknown substance which is suspected to be explosives.

At least four ambulances were sent to the scene. Two people were taken to hospital with minor injuries, they had been in the vicinity of the explosions.

According to witnesses, the man shouted something in Arabic before the bomb detonated.

The Swedish news agency TT reports that both them and the Swedish Security Service received a email with an audio-file only ten minutes before the explosions.
In the audio-clip a man addresses "Sweden and the Swedish people". He refers to the Swedish silence on artist Lars Vilks paintings of the muslim prophet Mohammed, the Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan, saying that "now shall your children, daughters and sisters die like our brothers and sisters and children are dying."

Security Service: “A terrorist crime”

When the Security Service and the Stockholm Police held a press conference on Sunday, yesterday's bombings were officially entitled a terrorist crime.

The Security Service would not confirm that the email that came just before the blasts are linked to the attacks, but says that it is one of the things that are examined.

The Security Service also states that they do not raise the threat level in response to yesterday's events. The threat level was raised on October 1 from level two three, from “low” to “increased”, on a scale of five.

The Stockholm Police is now to increase its "presence and visibility" at shopping malls and other public places. The police also asked the public to report observations.

According to the Security Service, the Council Against Terrorism may be called to a meeting during the day. The Council is a forum for cooperation between fourteen Swedish authorities, among else the Office of the Public Prosecutor, the National Criminal Investigation Department, and the Armed Forces.

It´s not extremists!!!! It´s Islam.. wake up world!!!

Are the Swedes suppose to give up their freedon of speech to keep from angering and radicalizing Muslims. Obviously the Muslims don´t care anything about angering and radicalizing everyone else.

This "eight hour warning" story sounds like a ploy to deflect blame onto the Swedish authorities. The same kind of stories circulated in the US after 9/11 -- rumors that there had been warnings, that certain groups stayed home from work at The Twin Towers that day, had been told not to fly, etc. Call me cynical, but this story smacks of an over-used, and predictable, diversionary tactic to me. Is there any hard evidence?

"Wow swedish lidi0ts, learn about islam before letting it in and supporting it blindly you self righteous blind bigots. Greetings from israel, which you sell out cold for apeasing evil." Interesting. Israel and most Western Jews fully support mass immigration in Western countries - but not in Israel. When the FPÖ entered the govt in Austria, Israel pulled out its embassy and supported a diplomatic/financial boycott of Austria. One standard for ISRAEL, another standard for the REST of us.

I live in Stockholm. The reason for this bomb is the Swedish govt´s sending soldiers to aid in the illegal occupation of Afghanistan. Of course someone would strike back eventually, it´s a given. The government sacrifices the people´s safety to support the globalist establishment in Washington. They only want to destroy the few anti-Israel governments in the Middle East. "Invade the world, invite the world" is their motto. They care NOTHING for Swedes, Americans or other Westerners. Only Israel.

Colin Powell later admitted that he LIED to the UN Gen. Assembly about having evidence. The U.S. killed 500,000 Iraqi children through sanctions and is funding the Palestinian genocide - that´s why a few Muslims struck back. That´s why Washington is occupying Afghanistan. 9/11, great excuse!

People cannot distance Islam from terrible acts of violence. Muslims are in denial about the fact that Mohammed launched attacks on travelling caravans and towns and cities alike. He stole peoples land and property and enslaved their wives and children sharing the booty amongst his generals. He also had people put to death and tortured. Some Muslim people may be peaceful but the religion never will be. Immigration must stop so much rampant breeding on benefits or it will be civil war.

Most muslims are paceful and by far the majority of victims of islamic terrorism are also muslim. True. But this sort of terrorism is something that is comming from within Islam and I think muslim communities should be at the front line facing and denouncing it. On the other hand, we should have in mind that terrorists want overreaction. The want to spread social hatred, they want tolerance to fail to promote radicalization.

I am a Muslim and live in a non-Muslim majority country. I hear and read a lot about discrimination faced by many Muslims but I tell you, nut job like killing innocent is not permitted my any interpretation islam neither is accepted by any true believer. These acts, however the criminals phrase it, are not Islamic.

Terry, If anybody “deserves this”, It is Sweden. Asif wrote: “Any innocent killed by Muslim will make him killer of whole human being, this is true Islam.... “ A good example of islamic ignorance or deceit. Koran is very specific, that it was said by “allah” to “sons of Israel”. For someone who is familiar with Judaism, Koran (the new testament as well) reads like a comic book.

@Rick 2010-12-12 04:24 Lars Vilks hasn´t drawn a new cartoon. The cartoon of Mohammed´s head on a dog´s body was from 2007. The cartoon was re-published by three Swedish newspapers in March, only after a plot to kill Vilks was discovered. Sweden can only satisfy the jihadis by brushing the hundred years of dust from the guillotine in the Nordic Museum and using it to behead Lars Vilks. This will not long satisfy them, and two minutes later they will choose a new reason to attack.

Some of you people are so cluless it´s not funny. If you don´t wake up soon, you´ll lose your way of life, country and the whole of Europe. I´m curious, will some Swede now arrange an exhibition glorifying the terrorist like you did a few years ago with the whore who slaughtered 25 people in Israel in a similar manner?

Appeasing a totalitarian ideology like Islam will never stop terrorist attacks. It will only embolden them. Islam is in the process of imploding from within, like communism. The question remains, how many will die before Islam dies?

Sammy Writes: "Why are these people so upset at the west? When did we ever do anything to hurt any of them? We are even trying to bring freedom to them right now in Iraq and Afghanestan. And this is how they pay us back." Did you ever think perhaps they see us as an invasion and don´t want us there? Thus bringing them to hate us and do these things? Could our foreign policy have anything to do with how others see us?

To those that are saying this is a "false flag" you are badly informed. Sweden has a serious problem with Muslim immigrants. Police and firefighters are attacke in some areas and Swedes don´t dare enter them. My girlfriend was raped in Malmo four years ago by an Arab "man" and the police covered it up, nothing ever came of it, no one cared. We´ve since left the country because it is doomed with the way things are.

Terrorism is a vice that should be condemned by all right thinking individuals.Countries that are sendng troupes abroad should invest more on construction than destruction,this will automatically neutralise hatred and cultivate a spirit of understanding and friendship.The world needs weapons of mass construction and rebuilding of lives not war or mass destruction.

@ Pacifist there have been more than 16,496 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks around the world since 9/11; see the Religion of peace http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/ The likelihood that this is yet another Jihad attack against non-Muslims is about 99.9999%, so of course people will blame Muslims and Islam.

You claim that you are developed one. Just shame on you.

Sweden, like many other European countries will pay a very heavy toll on their cowardly policy against the Islamic terrorism. You attack Israel that fighting every day against these killers and think that terrorism will not come to you. Today was attacked Israeli city with missiles- I have not heard any condemnation from Sweden about it, but in the event and it will come of an Israeli response I´m sure that Sweden will be in the front Against Israel. We fight and you are cowards.

With a large muslim population in Sweden, it only takes one or two angry young muslim men to do this sorta thing for the rest of the population to not trust their entire community. Minds close shut when this sorta thing happens and tensions between communities increase. Hopefully this is an isolated once off misguided incident and not a taste of things to come.
