More Swedish Sang Froid

Sweden's calm, cool and collected P.M. is urging people to, like, chill lest they race to arrive at the wrong conclusion:
STOCKHOLM, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt Sunday criticized the bomb explosions in Stockholm as "unacceptable," but he also warned against hasty conclusions.

Reinfeldt said that it is important to remember that the police have decided to investigate the matter as a terrorist crime.

"That is what we know and there are suspects," Reinfeldt said at a press conference Sunday after a press briefing by the Swedish National Security Service (SAPO).

Reinfeldt said that three incidents took place on Saturday in central Stockholm, a car explosion, a man who burned himself and died, and an email that was sent to the Swedish News Agency TT about 10 or 15 minutes before the explosion took place.
But Reinfeldt said that it has not confirmed that these three matters are interrelated.

"My job is to stay on what we know and when we get answers, we will discuss what it really means for our security," Reinfeldt said.

He said that he is waiting for the investigation results from the police.

"My advice to Swedish people is to have patience with democracy and not draw hasty conclusions," he said...
Good advice. After all, the bombings could have been the work of one of those "radical" Christians--a Tim McVeigh type, right? In which case, it would be unfair to conclude right off the bat that Sweden's weaselly policy of mollycoddling its Muslim minority (and sucking up to it by bashing Israel) is an abject and embarrassing failure.

Update: Here's a seasonal song for the chilly Swede (revised to take in the latest events):

It’s beginning to look a lot like jee-had
Ev’rywhere you go.
Take at look at it in Stockholm,
Jihadis seem free to roam.
But please don't rush to judgement
'Cuz it could have been a gnome.

It’s beginning to look a lot like jee-had.
Terrorists galore.
But the scariest sight to see
Is the way that the sharee-ya
Creeps in through the front door.

Hamas and Hezbollah all holler real loud
And so proud in the Middle East;
Afghanistan's thousands of Taliban men
Are fighting the Satanic beast.
And Hopeychanger’s reachin’ out--
Bad plan, to say the least.

It’s beginning to look a lot like jee-had
Ev’rywhere you go.
There’s Jew-hate in the OIC,
Virulent as can be,
And waiting in the wings espy the UN's Durban 3.

It’s beginning to look a lot like jee-had.
Infidels'll bleed.
‘Cause when kafirs let down their guard
That’s the time they’ll be hit hard
By a confident sha-heed,
By a confident sha-heed.

A 'person of interest' in the Stockholm low threat terrorism bombing case?

"It’s beginning to look a lot like jee-had
Ev’rywhere you go"

those lines out of mind. hehe
