Report: Norway is facing increasingly high immigrant crime rate

A wave of gratuitous violence has rattled inhabitants of the capital Oslo. The publication of a controversial report, which documents the correlations between criminality and the country of origin of criminals, raises a number of concerns.

    Norway, like Denmark and its Scandinavian neighbours, is one of those exemplary countries, always at the top of international rankings when it comes to economic or social performances. Even the large migratory flows that have swept over Europe in recent years do not seem to have disturbed the tranquility of these affable inhabitants much. Or so it seemed.

    Both “Living in harmony” and tolerance are written into the DNA of Norwegians, and it is not surprising that the Scandinavian kingdom is one of the least “racist” countries in the world. But this idyllic notion has been brutally shattered by a wave of physical assaults, reported the conservative Australian newspaper Quillette.

    Geographically isolated from migratory flows, Oslo has never feared being submerged by people who are culturally different. And for that reason, the country has contributed in recent years to the distribution of migrants, mainly from the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa.

    Integration, it was said, is going well, and nothing can disturb Norwegian tranquility. But for several weeks, downtown Oslo has been the scene of frequent attacks, targeting Norwegian men “of origin”.

    The strategy is now known police officers, who evoke gangs of young immigrants, with numbers varying between 5 and 10 usually. Twenty of these attacks, of exceptional violence, were recorded on only one Saturday, October 19.

    A young man from the city’s wealthy neighbourhood was beaten suffering several kicks to his face. At the same time, the uncle of the Minister of Justice, the young Jøran Kallmyr, had several ribs broken.

    The following weekend, several cars were burned in clashes between Turkish and Kurdish communities. But in Norway, few politicians can comment on the rise in crime among young immigrants.

    Despite the politically correct mainstream notions, the pro-immigration consensus is weakening little by little. The Libertarians of the Progress Party have repeatedly asked the Bureau of National Statistics to calculate the correlations between criminality and the offender’s country of origin, but to no avail.

    We only know that 14 percent of the population of Oslo is foreign, with Somalia, Pakistan, and Iraq ranking first among the non-OECD countries of origin.

    Finally, a report on the subject has been published and the conclusions are clear: immigrants from some origins, especially Palestinians, Iraqis and Afghans, are much more likely to commit violent crimes than the rest of the global population.

    Non-Norwegians are over-represented in 65 of the 80 criminal categories. Similarly, immigrants from non-Western countries are 8 times more likely to commit violent crime. Finally, and this is a detail that should worry the rest of Europe: second-generation immigrants seem more inclined than their parents to challenge the law in this way.

    The main cause for concern in some capital districts, where the proportion of immigrants sometimes exceeds 40 percent, is that this trend will grow. “Young people are growing up today in an environment where threats and violence are commonplace, where adults are sometimes afraid to intervene and where they are told that the police are racist,” said politician Heidi Vibeke Pedersen, in a Facebook post.

    “Our neighborhood is becoming more divided. We have regions that are mainly ‘Norwegian-Norwegian’, and others with a strong immigrant majority.” Clearly, diversity is not working, but the Norwegian left prefers to ignore the problem.

    “These figures do not interest me […]. We do not need to pit people against each other, ” responded the Labor Party leader, Kamzy Gunaratnam in the Norwegian daily Dagbladet.
