Norwegians Visit Rosengård
On Thursday a delegation from the Norwegian Progress Party (Fremskrittspartiet) visited Rosengård, a suburb of Malmö, in the south of Sweden. The party has been using recent events in Rosengård as an example of what they believe to be signs that Islam may be infiltrating certain areas and that sharia laws are growing in importance.
The party leader, Siv Jensen, was invited by the local authorities, but chose not to come.
Instead, a delegation headed by deputy leader Per Sandberg arrived on Thursday, followed by a large amount of Norwegian media. While in Rosengård the delegation visited the fire station, the police station, a mosque and a school.
Afterwards Per Sandberg dodged questions regarding the influence of sharia laws but maintained that as long as stones are being thrown at Swedish fire fighters, Swedish laws are not in effect, according to Swedish Radio News.
However, he was obliged to admit that Rosengård wasn’t quite the hotpot of Islamic infiltration that the party previously had believed.
