#WashingtonPost trying to cover its ass: "Just two days after President Trump provoked widespread consternation by seeming to imply, incorrectly, that immigrants had perpetrated a recent spate of violence in Sweden, riots broke out in a predominantly immigrant neighborhood in the northern suburbs of Sweden's capital, Stockholm."
The neighborhood, #Rinkeby, was the scene of #riots in 2010 and 2013, too. And in most ways, what happened late Monday night was reminiscent of those earlier bouts of #anger. #Swedish #police apparently made an arrest around 8 p.m. near the Rinkeby station. For reasons not yet disclosed by the police, word of the arrest prompted a #crowd of youths to gather.
Over four hours, the crowd #burned about half a dozen cars, #vandalized several shopfronts and #threw rocks at police. Police spokesman Lars Bystrom confirmed to #Sweden's #DagensNyheter newspaper that an #officer #fired shots with intention to hit a #rioter, but did not strike his target. A #photographer for the newspaper was #attacked by more than a dozen men and his camera was stolen, but ultimately no one was hurt or even #arrested.
[Trump asked people to ‘look at what’s happening … in Sweden.’ Here’s what’s happening there.]
Bystrom added, “This kind of situation doesn’t happen that often, but it is always regrettable when they happen.”
In 2015, when the influx of #refugees and #migrants to #Europe from #Africa, the #MiddleEast and #Asia was highest, Sweden took in the greatest number per capita. By and large, #integration has been a success story there, save for incidents such as Monday night's, which have taken place in highly segregated neighborhoods.

MoMA Responds To Travel Ban By Putting Muslim-Nation Art On Its Walls
This is exactly how major art museums can protest President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban.
03 February 2017
In times of injustice, the Museum of Modern Art ― one of the most influential art institutions in the United States ― is not remaining neutral.
According to The New York Times, MoMA is responding to President Donald Trump’s executive order barring immigrants from seven Muslim-majority nations — Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan and Syria — and indefinitely blocking entry for Syrian refugees. And it’s doing so by hanging work by artists from the majority-Muslim nations affected by the ban on its walls.
The seven works now on view at the New York museum include pieces by painter Ibrahim el-Salahi (Sudan), sculptor Parviz Tanavoli (Iran), painter Tala Madani (Iran), architect Zaha Hadid (Iraq), painter Charles Hossein Zenderoudi (Iran), photographer Shirana Shahbazi (Iran), and painter Marcos Grigorian (Russia, of Persian descent).
The artworks were installed in MoMA’s fifth floor galleries on Thursday night, replacing seven artworks by Western artists like Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Placards next to each work read:
This work is by an artist from a nation whose citizens are being denied entry into the United States, according to a presidential executive order issued on Jan. 27, 2017. This is one of several such artworks from the Museum’s collection installed throughout the fifth-floor galleries to affirm the ideals of welcome and freedom as vital to this Museum as they are to the United States.
