Sweden, this immense Nordic land where majestic fjords stand out and the coastal islands form a long rosary, is now also the country, much less popular, for outrageous profanations of the Noble Koran, in the name of a seriously misguided freedom of expression.
The emblematic land of the Vikings that arsonists of the worst kind have been trying to set ablaze for several months, burning the Holy Book of Islam, but also, very recently, the Great Mosque ofEskilstuna of which nothing remains, is no longer in the odor of holiness in the Holy Land. And that’s an understatement…
The largest country in Scandinavia, whose culpable inertia and indulgence, particularly in the face of repeated and unpunished burnings of the Koran, scandalize the Muslim world, is today attracting the wrath of Saudi Arabia.
Indeed, on Sunday, the Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs, Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, protested against the odious act of sacrilege too many: that committed in Malmö, at the beginning of September, with the full and complete consent of the local authorities, by Salwan Momika, the Iraqi refugee with a troubled past and a repeat offender.
In its official press release relayed by The official Saudi Press Agency, the very angry head of diplomacy of the kingdom, of which MBS is the crown prince, was indignant against “ highly reprehensible and brazen acts “, Who ” systematically repeat in a number of European cities under the guise of freedom of expression, and inflame the feelings of millions of Muslims around the world “. He vigorously reiterated their “firm and absolute rejection by the Kingdom”.
Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud also urged the Swedish authorities to tackle the problem head on, by urgently cracking down on the feared arsonists of the far right and their highly flammable acts, which fuel hatred and Islamophobia.
Will Saudi Arabia’s powerful warning shot provoke the much-anticipated wake-up call in Sweden? A Sweden where we preferred to continue to marvel at its grandiose landscapes, rather than being offended by the cult it devotes to freedom of expression, to the point of no longer dissociating Good from Evil.
