The Immigrant Academics

The amount of lies in the Swedish immigration and integration debate is probably more obscene than less.

The current fad is to state that the number of immigrant academics vastly outnumber the number of domestic academics and that immigrant Syrian academics are in the 30 percent range. This was lastly stated by our Prime Minister, Stefan Löfvén, on public television as late as this past week.

The Swedish census bureau, however, numbers the percentage of Syrians with a tertiary education longer than three years to only 10 percent!

And, considering the country of origin, what is a Syrian (Soviet-Russian) academic degree worth in a highly industrialised North Western European country? Probably not much.

So, the propaganda war continues and facts totally unrelated to reality becomes the truth when stated enough times. On public TV. By Prime Ministers.
