With it's relatively miniscule population of 9 million, the Swedish people are a very small tribe in the world. If this poll is at all representative of them asa whole, they are not long for this world. In the not too distant future peoiple will real about them the way we read about the Babylonians, the Inca, the Phonecians, or the Celts.

Voluntary self-extinction of a people is a difficult thing to comprehend.

Its hard to believe that this report reflects the opinions of a majority of Swedes.

Nobody can be that deluded.

That's interesting.

Hi Sheik Yer'mami,

This study reflects the opinions of history teachers (also history teachers in training).

Muslim youths are angry, frustrated and extremist because they have been taught the Koran. There fixed that for you. Don't mention it.

This is about Sweden incidentally, not Britain.

iftikhara, assimilate or get out. If you don't like the schools and you don't fit into the society that is 100% your own fault. There is no racism in Sweden. There never has been, and for the 1000th time, Islam is not a race, so stop demopathically invoking the race card because it undermines what little credibility the Muslim community has. Islam is racist (blacks go to hell, kill the Turks, push the Jews into the sea, etc., etc.), so for you to call the Swedes racist is (a) sick, and (b) more incredibly obvious narcissistic Muslim projection. Immigrants must (1) have something to offer their host culture, not vice versa, and (2) expect zero special accomodation, but rather just try their best to fit in. If you blame Sweden for the fact that you don't fit in, then you are crazy. It is your fault and your problem. Here on Earth, nobody owes anyone anything, least of all special bilingual schools, which you of course expect to be free. Make your own way. Be a respectable, self-sufficient human being with a backbone, a soul, and half a clue, and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOURSELF, YOUR LIFE, YOUR SHORTCOMINGS. And if you do that and the Swedes still don't accept you it is either because you have failed and must try harder or because your way of life is simply unacceptable and has no place in the free world. The Swedes are incredibly open-minded people who are very accepting of others, and if they have a problem with you that is your problem, not that of the Swedes.

Esther, thank you for clarifying that that was a poll of teachers. That explains a lot. It's pretty disturbing that they think that Muslims should be allowed to stay ridiculously ignorant by staying out of sex ed. and language classes. Science is next.

But what was this about:
"Q: To be released from gymnastics, music, art or language classes
Yes - 82.77% (7.71%)
No - 96.61% (0.80%)?"

That's crazy math.

Hi jdamn13,

I mixed around the numbers, trying to copy them in a shortened format. There are a couple of lines I now see I should fix.

According to the survey they don't think Muslims should be allowed to be exempt from classes.
