Wrong of the Swedish Security Service to Cover Up after False Bomb Threat in Gothenburg

It would not be surprising if the "safe source" in Gothenburg is misinterpreted excess material from the massive telephone intercepts that Swedish and foreign security forces are engaged in. The Security Service now takes over in Gothenburg and it's wrong of them to cover it all up, writes Gösta Hultén, spokesperson civil rights movement Charta 2008.
On Saturday afternoon heavily armed police barged into the homes of four families in Gothenburg. Family fathers were dragged out in front of their children. They will not forget when the police officers pointed their weapons (prohibited assault) and rummaging about in the apartments before they took the fathers away. In one case even three children where taken, all under 10 years, to the police department in Mölndal, unclear for what purpose.
Two of those arrested have told us they never got any specific questions about bombs, but they where questioned about their political views and his religion. The Constitution prohibits the authorities to ask about those things. But in pursuit of imaginary or real terrorists the usual legal standards does not apply.
The assault and drama in the victims' homes and to their children is especially bizarre given that all so quickly were released, two of them even the same day the bomb was supposed to go off. The bomb threat was "averted" as SVD's editorial page says is not true. No bomb has been defused.
So what really triggered the alarm? What was the "safe source" who alerted the Gothenburg police, was it a crackpot or a scam? This is not the first false alarm in tracks of "terrorist paranoia". Last Wednesday there was a bomb threat aimed towards a newspaper in Luleå. It now appears that the alarm came from an IP address in the police headquarters in Luleå.
It would not be surprising if the "safe source" in Gothenburg is misinterpreted excess material from the massive telephone intercepts that Swedish and foreign security forces are engaged in. The fact that the victims were Palestinians and Muslims is hardly a coincidence. In the book, "Report from the garbage planet" the writer Stefan Jonsson have described the universal foreclosure- and law systems that emerged after September 11 2001, ironically with the alleged purpose of protecting what is being called the "open society". It is based on a complete system of martial law, with the 2003 Terrorism Act as a basis. He does not hesitate to call the new anti-terror laws racist; specially designed to effectively only affect Muslims.
In the tracks of terrorist hunting, the U.S. has built a global infrastructure for mass registration and mass surveillance. It rests on a series of laws, decisions and resolutions of the United States, United Nations, European Union and Sweden. These systems are comprehensive and synchronized in a way that gives the concept of totalitarianism new meaning.
To inflate the terrorist madness is part of a new business idea. The industry in the U.S. who are exploiting and profiting from the so-called war on terror has 850 000 employees in 2000 private companies and 1300 various public bodies and is estimated to have spent 4500 billion (Swedish Kronor), wrote the Washington Post last summer.
Looking at the whole picture, we are all now in the open societies "registered". Internet traffic and telephone calls are monitored by both states and private security companies and all information collected about us in public or private settings are stored, linked, scanned, exchanged and sold. This vast information material can easily be abused for purposes that in the long run threatens us all.
According to the police's own investigation the rapid methods of arrest was "absolutely correct".
The Security Service now takes over in Gothenburg and for them to cover it all up is the wrong way to go. If we want to defend the open society, then those who frightened the population of Gothenburg must put all the cards on the table, the stormed Palestinian families obtain redress and compensation, and the truly responsible be held accountable.
