On Wednesday, Facebook deleted the personal account/page of Ingrid Carlqvist,the Gatestone Institute’s Swedish expert. Her offense was posting a video news report she created for Gatestone that discussed an almost 1,500% increase in rapes in Sweden. Ms. Carlqvist suggests the increase of rapes may be attributable to the mass influx of immigrants coming mainly from Muslim countries such as Iraq, Syria and Somalia.
Gatestone Institute is a non-partisan; not-for-profit international policy think tank run by former UN Ambassador John Bolton.
Carlqvist’s video (embedded below) is an updated version of a research paper published by Gatestone in February of 2015 which, based on quantitative research, speculated the increase in rapes was attributable to the arrival of large blocks of refugees from Islamist countries. While Sweden itself doesn’t allow the collection of ethic information from criminals, Ingrid Carlqvist uses other related data in an attempt to link the two. The video is scholarly, not sensationalist in tone.
