Christmas lights now banned as 'security' threat
Move called 'attempt to appease' Muslims, 'very dangerous strategy'
Calling it a “security” issue and arguing utility poles are not built to sustain their weight, the chief of the Swedish Transport Administration has banned Christmas lights from most towns this year.
But some critics believe it’s actually an attempt at appease a growing Muslim population of immigrants.
The non-profit Barnabas Aid, which works with persecuted Christians, pointed out that while the head of the Transport Administration officially has claimed the lights are banned because “the poles are not designed for the weight of Christmas lights,” that’s never been a problem before.
Pamela Geller contended the Christmas lights ban is “almost certainly an effort to avoid offending Muslim migrants who are causing chaos in cities like Malmo, where the firebombing of cars and businesses in or near Muslim ghetto ‘no-go areas’ is becoming a routine occurrence.”
