So quickly that even historian Bernard Lewis, who has continued throughout his honor-laden career to be strangely disingenuous about certain realities of Islamic radicalism and terrorism, told the German newspaper Die Welt forthrightly that "Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century."Or maybe sooner. Consider some indicators from Scandinavia this past week:Sweden's third-largest city, Malmø, according to the Swedish Aftonbladet, has become an outpost of the Middle East in Scandinavia: "The police now publicly admit what many Scandinavians have known for a long time: They no longer control the situation in the nations's third largest city. It is effectively ruled by violent gangs of Muslim immigrants. Some of the Muslims have lived in the area of Rosengård, Malmø, for twenty years, and still don't know how to read or write Swedish. Ambulance personnel are attacked by stones or weapons, and refuse to help anybody in the area without police escort. The immigrants also spit at them when they come to help. Recently, an Albanian youth was stabbed by an Arab, and was left bleeding to death on the ground while the ambulance waited for the police to arrive. The police themselves hesitate to enter parts of their own city unless they have several patrols, and need to have guards to watch their cars, otherwise they will be vandalized."The Nordgårdsskolen in Aarhus, Denmark, has become the first Dane-free Danish school. The students now come entirely from Denmark's fastest-growing constituency: Muslim immigrants.

Dear Greg and readers,This info must be regarded as des-information.Malmo belongs to my home area. I was born and grew up in that region - a university city called Lund, at the distance of 20 minutes by car.The suburb, Rosengarden, has been an area of trouble - but not of this dignity. I was a street preacher there some 25 years ago.We need prayer for the area, but the enemy is the right wing elements who are blowing problems out of proportion.Lars
The growth of Islam in Europe is indeed a major obstacle in this very hour.But, we may never use distorted information to defend our position.We cannot allow ourselves to generate prayer or evangelistic fervour by causing anxiety and fear.The House of prayer is everywhere present to stand as a peace maker.Lars

Europe, including Sweden, is to be considered as a missions field.We live in Linkoping, some 400 kilometers from Malmo. Both areas are regarded as points of beginning when it comes to the first establishments of Christianity in Sweden about 1000 years ago.But we live in a drastically secularised society. Linkoping is the center in Sweden for Nazism. Malmo is a bastion for criminal activity the Islamic positions are indeed firmly guarded.Our role is to pray, to work as prayer missionaries in a nation in which the Church no longer regard intimate knowledge of the Holy as a valid option.Please, join us in intense prayer.Lars
