How Conservatives and Neo-Nazis Are Exploiting the Murder of a 7-Year Old Girl
So today I saw Ann Coulter post this:
Sweden: Welfare migrant cuts throat of host family’s 7-year-old daughter - https://t.co/mgSkRAgrNf
The replies were predictable:
@AnnCoulter Europeans are going to be very sorry for letting the Muslims in their country. Muslims are coming to conquer and not assimilate.
@AnnCoulter it’s part of their culture bigot
Coulter wasn’t alone, of course:
Coulter’s link leads to a Danish anti-Muslim site, which provides an English translation of an article from a Swedish anti-Muslim site:
“A seven year old girl was stabbed to death in an apartment in Upplands-Bro in northern Stockholm on 25 July this year by a 36 year old man, Daniel Gebru. Ten months earlier Gebru arrived as a welfare of migrant from Eritrea to Sweden. …
Gebru has not been able to give any concrete reasons for why he cut the throat of the seven-year girl in the bathroom of her home. He had previously been living in the apartment. What he did there on that day is unclear because according to some data he was not living there anymore. As the Court notes, however, he did live in the apartment when the murder was committed but Gebru had failed to pay rent.
Gebru has stated that he had intended to take his own life but for unknown reasons instead stabbed the girl to death.”
Neo-Nazi and conservative sites are running with this, of course. Here are some google search snippets:

If you would read only these websites, comments there and nothing else, you would get the image of a native Swedish family horrendously hurt by a scary, ungrateful black Muslim “welfare migrant” they had given a home to.
Such a picture could only be achieved by these sites through selective editing of reality.
1. Gebru’s religion, if he has any, is not known. Eritrea is 50-60% Christian.
2. Both the murdered girl - Yosan Afewerki - and her parents are ethnic Eritreans too.
This is an inconvenient fact for white supremacists, so they simply omit it to fit the story into their “black on white crime” narrative. Otherwise they would have never referred to a family of Eritrean immigrants as simply “Swedish”.
3. The murder had nothing to do with religion or cultural differences.
Here’s the judgment in this criminal case, in Swedish of course - use Google Translate.
Daniel Gebru was found with a knife in his throat. He actually did try to kill himself. He was transported to a hospital “with life-threatening injuries”. The judgment goes into more detail, trying to reconstruct what happened and referring to the results of a psychiatric evaluation. Gebru is objectively a person with a mental disorder who, in a delusional state, was trying to cut himself with a knife when the girl appeared. What happened next is inexcusably tragic, and it is something that didn’t depend on anyone’s migrant status, religion, culture and so on. Nobody has a monopoly on mental illness. Even conservatives and neo-Nazis.
