Finnish Immigration Concerns



Some of the immigrants are frightened by the prevailing situation. Jama Yusuf Ahmed, who was injured in the clash that took place on Saturday night, looks at cars that crawl past the apartment houses.

“I am very frightened. We are too afraid even to go shopping in the evenings.”

Chairman Muqtar Moalin Nuur of the local Somali Association says that he has not faced racism himself in Lieksa, and he feels that it is a good place to live.

He says that problems are experienced mainly by those who visit bars and drink.
He notes that immigrants have also had knives in the local nightlife.

“We have also made mistakes. We have the same problems as the local people do – family troubles and others”, Muqtar Moalin Nuur acknowledges.

  1. First line begins with: racial tensions.
    Second line begins with: Muslims prayers.

    When do people get it? Islam is not a race.

  2. Why are they receiving financial aid and the natural born citizens are suffering from years of unemployment ?

    Why put them in a tiny insular community ?

    Is there anyone left in Somalia? Every country in drowning in their “refugees .”

  3. My father came from Karelia and the last thing I would want to see is a
    Muslim community setting up there, and bringing all the rubbish and detritis of their cult with them.

    Oops . . I must be an Islamaphhobe I suppose!!

  4. I’m very familiar with this little town called Lieksa as my husband was born there. After finishing elementary school, Lieksa doesn’t have much to offer. Therefore, once quite a flourishing town, youth have basically moved away and in addition, as Lilly noted, the town’s unemployment rate is very high. During weekends or on holidays the youth come back to visit their families and gather at bars to meet their old friends. As the government pays for immigrant intake, Lieksa has been trying to improve the town’s lousy economy by taking immigrants. However, results are not so good, because apparently immigrants cost more than what they produce (and for sure, there they are not potential taxpayers either). My experience was that in that town, many people go fishing, hunting and picking berries, i.e., enjoying wildlife and the very nature their parents or grandparents fought for (and in this multiculturalism era you may take this as a racist comment, but, be my guest). It’s a relatively poor town and has many problems, but it has firm and proud roots -if only PC doesn’t castrate it (as it has already done to our country’s heritage on many levels).

    1. Hi Karoliinukka, no it’s not a racist statement, its a fact of Finnish life, something worth hanging on to. Only in this day and age, clinging to your culture and way of life, is deemed “waycist” you hit the nail on the ahead. Thanks for contributing that for my readers. Much appreciated.
