This Disturbing Message Found Painted on Wall Outside of School
In a month that saw President Obama make his first official visit to a U.S. mosque, one with ties to radical Islam, to tell the American people, “Islam has always been a part of America,” and French authorities investigate a gunfight at a migrant camp where Muslims are targeting Christians, a school in Sweden is dealing with a declaration of religious war.
Police were called to Mill Pond School in the tourist city of Växjö, Sweden, when the headmistress discovered graffiti spray painted on the brick exterior wall reading: “Pray to Allah or Die.”

An Islamic State battle flag was also painted on the wall.
The school official, Madeleine Johansson, called the police and filed a complaint because the message made her feel “uncomfortable,” she said, but she adds that she is concerned for the feelings of the school’s “newly arrived students,” referring to the Muslim immigrants that have filled the city as part of the massive influx from the Middle East.
A spokesman for the authorities said the police do not have a suspect, but “have some things we want to follow up that will hopefully lead us to one.”
Sweden, like all of Europe, is experiencing increasing violence throughout the country as the Muslim immigrants clash with Western culture and norms, including the treatment of women as in the case of the murder of a 22-year-old social worker by a 15-year-old Muslim boy in a center for unaccompanied migrant “children.”
The staff at the center, in a part of Gothenburg, was told it could not have a memorial service for their co-worker because it might “upset” the other children.
The exodus out of the chaotic conditions in the Middle East, particularly in Syria and Libya, has given Islamic jihadists cover to infiltrate groups flooding into Europe in the hundreds of thousands, giving them a base from which to launch hijrah, the Muslim tenet of faith to move to a new country in order to colonize and convert it to Islam.
The word comes from the story of Muhammad’s journey in 622 where he took not only the faith from Mecca to Medina, but established himself as a political and military leader who preached violence against unbelievers.
According to the Quran, “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance. And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” (4:100)
The journey is so significant to the Islamic faith that its calendar begins from the date of Muhammad’s hijrah.
