...  Importing an extraordinary number of [Islamic] Middle Easterners has caused many problems, but reporting on them is controversial. The Swedes discourage it, and the American press is generally happy to oblige.

Malmo is the Swedish city with the largest immigrant population, and the Rosengard neighborhood of Malmo is overwhelmingly immigrant. It has occasionally been reported that there are “no go” zones in Sweden–specifically, in Malmo neighborhoods like Rosengard–but Swedish authorities have denied it. Snopes was quick to debunk the “no go” claim...

Aftonbladet, one of Sweden’s principal newspapers, reports, in English via Google Translator:

The international distribution company UPS no longer runs packages in the Malmö district part of Rosengård.  

The transport company UPS no longer runs packages in Rosengård in Malmö, for security reasons. Postnord does not deliver packages to another area in Malmö, Seved.

Postnord is the Swedish postal service.

– We must think of our staff in the first place, says Mathias Krümmel at Postnord.

A person in Malmö who ordered the delivery home to the door received notice from the distribution company UPS that the company no longer supplies to private addresses in the district of Rosengård because of the risk of being exposed to robbery or other crimes, reports Sydsvenskan.

An employee at the company’s customer service tells the newspaper that the home run in Rosengård was stopped two months ago, when drivers were attacked. Even in some areas in Stockholm, UPS has stopped the delivery of parcels....

Postnord delivers packages to Rosengård, but the delivery in the district has been temporarily stopped on some occasions, for the safety of the personnel. Some areas in Stockholm have also had temporary delivery stops in recent years, says Mathias Krümmel, head of production in Postnord....

Today there is only one area in the country where Postnord does not run home packages, and it is Seved in Malmö. There, companies and residents can collect packages at delivery points.

– The postmen can go there without being threatened, but if we drive there with the package car they will be threatened....

So the immigrant-heavy areas of Malmo and even Stockholm may not be “no go” zones for the police, but civilian organizations, like UPS and the Swedish post office, don’t dare expose their employees to the risk of violence. That is life in the sort-of-socialist paradise of Sweden.
