    In Sweden, an attempted murder was reported in Haninge Municipality near Stockholm, according to Swedish broadcaster SVT.

    In Gothenburg some 17 fires of both cars and garbage bins were reported, bu police say they may have been cause by fireworks.

    Officers in Stockholm were attacked by fireworks and in Lysekil ambulance staff were attacked after coming to the aid of three security guards who had been beaten by a mob of ten to fifteen people.

    In the Barmbek area of Hamburg, Germany, firefighters were almost lynched by a mob of migrants at a local shisha bar after coming to the aid of a man who had been stabbed.

    The firefighters had to lock themselves in the vehicle to call for back-up. The back-up eventually arrived armed with submachine guns along with an ambulance that took the stabbing victim to a nearby hospital.

    In the Netherlands , several violent incidents were reported with a group of “youths” in The Hague and in Assen attacking police and firefighters with fireworks while yelling “Allahu Ackbar” . At least two people in the Netherlands died as a result of accidents related to fireworks.

    In Belgium, several cases of arson were noted in the heavily migrant-populated Brussels suburb of Molenbeek where rioting and the ransacking of a local pharmacy took place. Firefighters on the scene were attacked with fireworks.

    France, which has become famous for car burnings over the New Year’s period, saw at least 99 cars set on fire in the migrant-populated Seine-Saint-Denis area outside Paris and a total of 31 arrests.

    In the UK, a jihadist stabbed three people in Manchester’s Victoria railway station, including a police officer while screaming “Allah!”

    According to the Greater Manchester Police, however, the suspect is being held and assessed for “mental health issues” although the police said they were treating the incident as terrorism-related.

    On Monday evening, three people, a couple and a policeman, received stab wounds in a knife attack at Victoria station. The suspected attacker was detained minutes after the attack and is currently in custody in Manchester. The policeman was discharged from the hospital earlier on Tuesday, while the couple “are still being treated in hospital for their serious injuries,” police said.

    “We are treating this as a terrorist investigation which is being led by counter terrorism officers with support from Greater Manchester Police,” the police tweeted.

    Police were “currently searching an address in the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester which is believed to be where the man had most recently been living.”

    The attack took place very close to the scene of the May 2017 Manchester Arena bombing, which killed 23 people, including the attacker.

      One wonders what more evidence the peoples of Europe need to understand that they have been set up for replacement by third world savages. Only the most extreme nationalist political parties can take the necessary action to prevent this, but it is highly unlikely that the brainwashed masses of whites will ever support them. The only other option is armed revolt and that is also unlikely as most of these countries make it very difficult for the population to arm themselves.
