Three young men were arrested for alleged ‘aggravated rape’ after they broadcasted a live video on Facebook, showing how they sexually assaulted a woman from Uppsala. Hundreds of people were able to watch the horrifying scene on Facebook.
During the live stream, witnesses said that one of the suspects pulled out a gun and threatened the viewers. Police arrival on the crime scene was also filmed, according to Upsala Nya Tidning, a Swedish newspaper.

Several witnesses who alerted the local media said the crime happened around 3:30 am and was live-streamed on a close group page on Facebook. Swedish police have also been contacted by large numbers of witnesses of the sexual assault.
The viewers also witnessed the arrival of the police at the apartment where the alleged assault happened until the live video was ended.
The Swedish police confirmed they were able to capture the three suspects who broadcasted the video.
A witness, Josefine Lundgren ‘immediately’ alerted the police after she saw the horrifying scene on the live video.
“He (one of the suspects) pulled off her clothes and lay on top of her (the victim),” Lundgren said.
Meanwhile, one of the viewers from Ånge said that one of the suspects took out a gun, threatened and challenged the viewers to come at the crime scene.
“This is insane”, she told Expressen. “Only sick people could do such a thing … I hope these guys are ashamed, and that they sit and think about what they have done.”
According to the biggest Swedish online discussion forum, Flashback, Facebook users who claimed to witness the live broadcast of the alleged assault were able to identify the assailants; the trio were believed to have a Middle Eastern appearance.
Several screen-captured pictures from the live video were posted on the Flashback forum, with one of them showing a police officer at the crime scene.
The first post on the online forum during the live broadcast shows a man trying to convince the alleged rape victim, who was described as “totally numb and intoxicated”, to deny that she was sexually attacked.
Moreover, Uppsala police officers did not give any further details on the arrest, Fria Tider reported on Sunday morning.
“Three people have been arrested but otherwise I can’t give any further details,” duty officer Nina Dahlström told Upsala Nya Tidning.

Recently, while scrolling through the notifications of new “Likes/Followers” for our site’s publicized Facebook page ..one in particular caught my eye. Does that read what I think it does? Why yes it does.
‘..Americans for Sharia liked and is now following your page..’
Upon checking out this relatively new Community page..which had not yet received it’s first “like,” that is until “I” liked it… 🙂 ..I was left alone to discern.. Is this rapidly expanding community of “2” (myself and the unknown administrator) serious or satire?
Therefore, in an effort to facilitate dialog, I cordially messaged the administrator, introduced myself and respectfully asked a few questions. The only reply I have received thusfar is (quote):
‘..Brother, we are for the One God but we hate mohels..’
Hmm.. I’m not sure if the ‘mohel’ reference is specifically aimed at those who perform male circumcision in accordance with the Judaic Faith or simply Judaism as a whole.
Regardless..after strolling around the page for a moment, I noticed the following statement in the sidebar (quote):
‘..Did you know that Shariah can solve all of America’s problems? Drugs, drunk driving, the spread of STDs, high divorce rates, teenage pregnancy..’
I suppose this could be true, but is it not also true when properly adhering to the tenets of any of the other major “religions” of the world?
Are these “social plagues” in America today not the result of a lack of adherence to the teachings of the Judaic faith(‘s) of Judeo-Christianity/Judaism? So then, why would the current social condition in America be any different today, if goverened under Islamic ‘Sharia Law?’ Would there actually be less occurences of ‘..teenage pregnancy..’ under Sharia Law than there currently are under Judaic Law, as the administrator for ‘Americans for Sharia’ appears to contend? Perhaps so, but only for this reason: Under Sharia Law, the out-of-wedlock pregnant teen girls would be charged with committing “Adultery,” buried in the ground up to their chest and stoned to death. Afterall, this is the compulsory “Crime and Punishment” mandated for females having sexual relations outside of marriage, according to Islamic Sharia Jurisprudence.
Continuing on down the page, there is a video entitled “Hijab Tutorial: Layers and Drapes” ..where a [presumably Muslim woman] teaches females how to properly put on and wear the Islamic female head attire, commonly referred to as the hijab.
Here is that video:
We encourage our readers to visit the ‘Americans for Sharia’ Facebook Community HERE although, we respectfully request that ALL of our readers PLEASE give the administrator(‘s), group members and all visitors on that page the same degree of respect that ‘you’ wish to receive.
Remember, being mean and/or disrespectful to a person that we may disagree with on principal accomplishes what in the end? Usually an arguement, name calling and the conversation ends at that point…
Please try to open-up a line of communication and facilitate dialog.
First and foremost.. accept and love a person right where they are today, for who they are today and I assure you..this will speak volumes as to who ‘you’ truly are as a person. Much more so than anything you will ever say…
Ahavah and Shalom.

Facebook and Loretta Lynch, you’ve been served. For years I have documented the outrageous bias of Facebook’s speech policies. Hundreds of readers and Facebook followers have written to me, helpless because Facebook blocked or banned them for posting news stories or comments critical of jihad or sharia. Enough. We are suing for violation of our First Amendment rights.
We filed this lawsuit on behalf of all of us — freedom-loving peoples — struggling under the boot of Facebook’s strict sharia adherence.
“Geller: Why I Am Suing Facebook,”
Pamela Geller, Breibart, July 13, 2016:
Every day I received emails from readers and members of my various Facebook groups, asking for help after having been blocked for posting a story or comment that might offend Muslims.
This is America, not Saudi Arabia. Enough.
I am suing.
The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) is filing a federal lawsuit today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) under the First Amendment. In a press release, he AFLC explained that “Section 230 provides immunity from lawsuits to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, thereby permitting these social media giants to engage in government-sanctioned censorship and discriminatory business practices free from legal challenge.” The lawsuit was brought on behalf of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and Jihad Watch.
As the AFLC explained, “Geller and Spencer, along with the organizations they run, are often subject to censorship and discrimination by Facebook, Twitter and YouTube because of Geller’s and Spencer’s beliefs and views, which Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube consider expression that is offensive to Muslims. Such discrimination, which is largely religion-based in that these California businesses are favoring adherents of Islam over those who are not, is prohibited in many states, but particularly in California by the state’s anti-discrimination law, which is broadly construed to prohibit all forms of discrimination. However, because of the immunity granted by the federal government, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are free to engage in their otherwise unlawful, discriminatory practices.”
For years I have documented the outrageous bias of Facebook’s speech policies. Notoriously one-sided, those who oppose jihad terror, support Israel and stand against the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth (sharia) have been systematically blocked and banned. Just last month Facebook took down my page and blocked me after a devout Muslim opened fire on a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Facebook said they took down my page because of their rule against “hateful, obscene, or threatening” content.
But it is not hateful, obscene, or threatening to oppose jihad terror such as we saw in Orlando. Truth is not hateful or obscene. What is hateful, obscene and threatening is that Facebook is moving to silence everyone who speaks honestly about the motivating ideology behind such attacks.
After the Orlando jihad massacre, they went into full damage control mode. Orlando showed jihad for what it is. They’re committed to obscuring that knowledge and making sure people remain ignorant and complacent about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat.
They also banned my own account for thirty days. This has happened before — when I get too close to truths they want to cover up. They’re afraid these truths will get out, and that people will start acting to remove the feckless and traitorous leaders who got us into this fix.
And to those of you who say, “Forget Facebook, we’ll do without it,” I say no. I am sick and tired of the suppression of our speech. We are unable to engage in the public square. And yes, Facebook is the public square; it’s where we connect. We have to fight for it. Shouting into the wilderness is not freedom of speech. My Facebook page has close to 300,000 followers, and combined with my pages (SIOA, SION, AFDI), the reach is another 100,000. It’s a critical connection.
Facebook has immense power over organic media — the sharing of our information and news between friends and associates. I would say too much power. They’re trying to change the people by restricting our access to information. The Blaze reported in May that “Facebook’s news curators would regularly suppress news stories important to conservative readers and keep them off the ‘trending’ news section coveted by publications, a journalist and former Facebook employee told Gizmodo.”
“News curators”: what a Goebbels-like term.
Those of us who connect on Facebook have known this for years. We see it. We feel it. Which is why it is critical for our Facebook followers to share our stories on their news feeds. It is up to us to educate people.
Facebook’s unlawful, discriminatory practices have been mandated at the highest levels. In September 2015, German Chancellor Angela Merkel strong-armed Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook to censor posts critical of the migrant invasion. CNBC reported that Merkel was “overheard confronting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over incendiary posts on the social network.” What kind of incendiary posts? Pro-jihad terror posts? No: Merkel was angry about posts criticizing her policy of inundating Germany with Muslim migrants.
The CNBC report continued: “On the sidelines of a United Nations luncheon on Saturday, Merkel was caught on a hot mic pressing Zuckerberg about social media posts about the wave of Syrian refugees entering Germany, the publication reported. The Facebook CEO was overheard responding that ‘we need to do some work’ on curtailing anti-immigrant posts about the refugee crisis. ‘Are you working on this?’ Merkel asked in English, to which Zuckerberg replied in the affirmative.”
This is so typical of the elites. They control policy, they control the media, they control the culture — but they can’t control the people. And this makes them crazy. If they could, they would change the people.
And so they try to change the people by restricting their access to information. My page “Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s In the Quran” was taken down from Facebook because it was “hate speech.” Hate speech? Really? The page ran the actual Quranic texts and teachings that called for hatred and incitement of violence against the Jews. So who exactly was responsible for any “hate speech” that may have been present on the page?
Facebook policy dictates that truth is hate speech.
Why is Zuckerberg scrubbing evidence of Muslims inciting people to commit acts of hatred and violence? Why do his policies allow for vicious posts and pages against Israel to stand, but exposing the truth behind that Islamic hate is prohibited? That’s sharia.
Another time I received a warning on our Stop Islamization of America pages (join them!) because of this photo, another actual photo of Muslims daubing a building wall with “Kill the Jews” and “Jihad against Israel.”
Dexter Van Zile, the Christian Media Analyst for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting (CAMERA) writes: “Recently, my correspondents have alerted me to another page on Facebook. The end of the URL includes the phrase ‘The Truth About Jews” and the page itself promotes Blood Libels against the Jewish people.
It’s titled ‘Jewish ritual murder.’ The page has all the stuff you’d expect on an anti-Semitic Facebook page. It has 248 ‘Likes’ and includes anti-Jewish libels from all over the world. The page includes a disclaimer that is simply bizarre: ‘Comments that are offensive, obscene, vulgar, irrelevant to this page or classified as spam will be removed.’ The entire page is offensive and obscene. And the page, which has been in existence since March 2012, is an exercise in vulgar anti-Semitism.
“Yes, people have complained about the page. And yes, Facebook has responded with messages indicating that the page does not violate the company’s community standards.
Will the page eventually be removed? Probably. But why doesn’t Facebook delete this stuff when first apprised of its presence on their website?”
And there is so much more. The Blaze recently reported that “a legal group accused Facebook of favoring anti-Semites over Jews following an experiment it conducted. It created two Facebook groups with nearly identical content, but with the words ‘Jews/Israelis’ and ‘Arabs/Palestinians’ swapped.”
Shurat HaDin posted a video entitled “The Big Facebook Experiment,” showing Facebook’s anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian bias. Their pro-Israel group included a post saying, “Death to all the arabs,” while their pro-Palestinian group included a post saying, “Death to all the jews.”
Then they reported both groups to Facebook. The pro-Israel group was taken down. The pro-Palestinian group wasn’t.
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of Shurat Hadin commented: “Facebook’s management is required to act immediately against the blatant incitement being waged for years against Jews and Israelis in the social network it owns and manages. The in-depth investigation we conducted proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that [Facebook’s] claims of equality in the face of its conduct against any individual or group of people are at best erroneous and false in the worst case.”
Darshan-Leitner concluded: “It cannot be that in 2015 a publicly traded commercial company will carry out a racist policy which so blatantly discriminates in favor of any party. The investigation we conducted proves that indeed there is bias in favor of one political party and against Israelis and Jews in particular. Jews and Israelis around the world should be very concerned over the results of the investigation and understand that the most famous social network in the world is working actively in favor of the Palestinians.”
Facebook is increasingly doing the bidding of vicious Muslim thugs and supremacists. I receive a number of emails weekly from Muslims living in Muslim countries who have left Islam and live in terror and fear of being found out. They plead for help and advice.
One group of Arab ex-Muslims, after having their material repeatedly deleted by Facebook, prepared a petition at Change.org asking Facebook to stop deleting Arab Atheist and secularist groups. Sign this petition.
Frankly, it’s terrible and getting worse. As it continues to seize power and control, the left is on dangerous ground. We well know the bloody outcome of this trajectory. This has to end now.

An Israeli rights group is suing Facebook for $1bn on behalf of families of victims of Palestinian attacks.
The Shurat Hadin group says Facebook violates the US Anti-Terrorism Act by allowing militant groups such as Hamas a platform for spreading violence.
Hamas called the lawsuit an Israeli attempt to blackmail Facebook.
The victims cited in the case are all American, including Taylor Force, 28, who was stabbed to death while visiting Israel in March.
The others are dual Israeli-US nationals who died in attacks in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank between 2014 and 2016.
The suit, filed with the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, argues the platform “knowingly provided material support and resources to Hamas… facilitat(ing) this terrorist group’s ability to communicate, recruit members, plan and carry out attacks, and strike fear in its enemies”.
Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman in Gaza, accused Israel of trying to turn it into a spy tool against Palestinians.
He said some Israeli politicians and soldiers had “expressed pride at the killing of Palestinians” on Facebook and other social media.
“The real test for the owners of Facebook is to reject this pressure,” he said.
Israel says Palestinian incitement on social media has fuelled a wave of attacks since October, which have killed 35 Israelis and four people of other nationalities.

A report on the Israel-Palestinian conflict last week by the Quartet group of international mediators identified “the spreading of incitement to violence on social media” by Palestinians as a key issue.
“Hamas and other radical factions are responsible for the most explicit and widespread forms of incitement. These groups use media outlets to glorify terrorism and openly call for violence against Jews, including instructing viewers on how to carry out stabbings,” the report said.
Asked to comment on the Shurat Hadin case by the Reuter news agency, Facebook’s Israeli PR firm said the company “does not respond on any issue currently subject to legal procedure”.
The lawsuit was brought under the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1992 which prohibits American businesses from providing any material support, including services, to designated terrorist groups and their leaders.
- Turkish court orders Facebook pages insulting Mohammed to be blocked
- Also warns that site will be banned if it doesn’t comply with Turkey’s ruling
- Turkey has also banned web access to cover of Charlie Hebdo magazine
- Move is seen as the latest in crackdown on ‘offending religious material’
Editorial Preface: Our lead-in referrer ‘Blazing CatFur’ is reporting that Facebook has already begun the process of blocking pages on their social networking site that ‘..insult Muhammad..’
by, Jennifer Newton | Daily Mail Online | h/t Frau Katze @ Blazing CatFur
A Turkish court has ordered authorities to block access to Facebook pages that ‘insult’ the Prophet Mohammed and warned the whole site will be banned if the company doesn’t comply.
The country’s state-run news agency confirmed that a court in Ankara issued the order yesterday, following a request by a prosecutor.
The decision comes just days after another court ruling banned access in Turkey to web pages featuring the controversial cover of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo depicting the Prophet Mohammed.
Atheist (POS) Mark Zuckerberg Bows Down and Submits to Islam:
It is the latest move to crack down on material seen as offending religious sensibilities in the largely Muslim nation, where the government of President Tayyip Erdogan is viewed as pursuing an Islamist-leaning agenda.
Facebook have yet to comment on the ruling but earlier this month Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company would not censor content published in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks.
He added that the social network would ‘never let one country or group of people dictate what people can share across the world.’
However, according to statistics released by Facebook, the company has removed 1,893 ‘pieces of content’ at the request of the Turkish government.
Earlier this month, Turkey’s president began to press for new legislation which would allow ministers to temporarily ban websites, such as Facebook, and force Twitter to block an anonymous whistleblower.
The proposed law would allow ministers to restrict access to websites deemed to threaten lives, public order or rights and freedoms.
The Telecommunications Directorate (TIB) would have to comply within four hours, and then apply for a court order for the ban to be extended beyond 24 hours.
Communications minister Lutfu Elvan this week defended the proposal, saying it was needed after Turkey’s top court in October annulled previous legislation giving greater powers to ban websites, and saying it would only be used in emergencies.
Last year Turkey came under international criticism for temporary bans on Facebook and Twitter as a corruption scandal unfolded.
Erdogan vowed to ‘eradicate’ Twitter after allegations of government corruption were published on the micro-blogging site.
Meanwhile Facebook was briefly banned in Pakistan along with Twitter after the sites refused to remove pictures pertaining to be the Prophet Muhammad.
Facebook did eventually bow to pressure and blocked the images in Pakistan.
