Qaisar Mahmood, a Muslim born in Pakistan, is the new head of the Swedish National Heritage Board. This is an extremely anomalous appointment, since he readily admits that he has not read anything about Swedens cultural heritage. But his new job is not really about preserving and protecting Swedens cultural heritage and historical sites at all.
Qaisar Mahmood, who once rode his motorcycle around Sweden in an apparently failed attempt to discover what being Swedish consisted of, is using his position as head of the Swedish National Heritage Board not to highlight and celebrate that heritage, but to downplay Swedens cultural heritage and history, and to create a false narrative that will help compel Swedes to accept mass Muslim migration. He says he doesnt want simply to alert people to Viking artifacts and the like, but to use Swedens history to create the narrative that will make Muslim migrants part of something.
We have already seen how that works. Remember the fake news story about the Viking burial cloth bearing the word Allah? Last October, a Swedish researcher gained international headlines by claiming that burial costumes from Viking graves dating back to the ninth and tenth centuries had been found to be inscribed with the name Allah. The intent of this was obvious: to convince Swedes that Islam had always been a part of Sweden, all the way back to the days of the Vikings, and so they should not be concerned about the mass Muslim migration that was now bringing Sweden unprecedented rape and other crime rates. Islam has always been a part of Sweden! Stop opposing mass Muslim migration!
The Viking burial cloths didnt really feature the name Allah at all, as Stephennie Mulder, an associate professor of Medieval Islamic art and archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin, proved shortly thereafter, but by then the damage had been done. The idea had entered, however dimly, the popular consciousness: the Vikings were really Muslims. Islam is Swedish. Sweden was Islamic before it was Christian. The Muslim migrants are Swedes.
The Allah Viking burial cloth propaganda offensive was one manifestation of what Qaisar Mahmood and others like him are doing. There is no Muslim history in Sweden, but Qaisar Mahmood is working to change the very idea of cultural heritage and fabricate fictions about a historical Muslim presence in Sweden in order to advance his political and sociological agenda.
Qaisar Mahmood, as a Pakistani, of course has no Swedish heritage of his own. His admitted lack of knowledge of Swedish heritage and history ought to have disqualified him from his position, but this is how Sweden is obliterating itself and committing cultural and national suicide. After all, Swedes appointed Qaisar Mahmood to this position. It is Swedish leaders who want to destroy Swedish cultural and national identity.
It also must be remembered in connection with Qaisar Mahmoods role as head of the Swedish National Heritage Board that the Quran suggests that ruins are a sign of Allahs punishment of those who rejected his truth: Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you: travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth. (3:137)
This is one of the foundations of the Islamic idea that pre-Islamic civilizations, and non-Islamic civilizations, are all jahiliyya the society of unbelievers, which is worthless. Obviously this cuts against the idea of tourism of ancient sites and non-Muslim religious installations such as are found all over Sweden.
V. S. Naipaul encountered this attitude in his travels through Muslim countries. For many Muslims, he observed in Among the Believers, The time before Islam is a time of blackness: that is part of Muslim theology. History has to serve theology. Naipaul recounted that some Pakistani Muslims, far from valuing the nations renowned archaeological site at Mohenjo Daro, saw its ruins as a teaching opportunity for Islam, recommending that Quran 3:137 be posted there as a teaching tool.
It does lead one to ponder what Qaisar Mahmood might allow to be done, or not done, with Swedens historical sites and artifacts. But whatever destruction may ensue is, obviously, what Swedish authorities want.
Never seen a country more anxious to commit suicide.
swedes must be self-loathing morons. Too much reindeer stew?
Sweden hates itself.
That makes as much sense as putting Jeffrey Dahmer in charge of dinner......
I cannot believe Sweden is that far “lost”. The way muzzies are treated here, the U.S. is catching up with the Sweds quite rapidly..
How stupidly inclusive of them. They should kick his Muzzie a$$ back to $hitholestan.
Sweden hates itself.
Like Shmuck Shoomer hates America?
This is taking virtue signalling to the level of national suicide.
“Hold the blade closer to my jugular, like this...”
I pity the poor satirists . How can they compete with today’s reality?
Not exactly. Schumer actually wants to keep living.
Vikings did sell lots of European slaves to the Persians and Central Asian muslims.
The descendants of the Vikings are being raped and pillaged by the Mussulmen. And apparently very happy about it all.
WTF? Where are the Swedish men?
“Where are the Swedish men?” The best of them, descendents of the Vikings, emigrated to the New World. My paternal grandparents were among them, coming alone to the U.S. when still in their teens, bearing only a cheap cardboard suitcase and big dreams. Anyone with any get-up-and-go got up and went. The Swedes left behind are sad specimens. We’re seeing survival of the fittest in real time. Personally, I find it fascinating.
