Jeg vidste dokumentaren fandtes, den er fra 2006, men jeg har ikke fundet den før nu. Denne vidunderlige stemme, denne store kunstner, der ikke er crooner, men er sådan. Vellyden, barytonen og melankolien er han er født med, begavelsen, mareridtene og nerverne er bare køretøjet. Marc Almond, David Bowie, Jacques Brel, Brian Eno, og Sting medvirker. Bowie har produceret, han er stor nok til at bøje sig for en kunstner, der er større end ham selv. Musikernes musiker. Det er ikke noget, man hører, mens man steger frikadeller. For meget? Ja, derfor i små portioner, men man er glad for, at det findes. Man må leve med de spanske undertekster, med mindre man er spanier.

“We consider them Swedes; they consider us enemies”
“We feel that we have lost our country forever to Islamists,” siger en svensk mand i In Sweden and the West, What Message Are We Muslims Sending? af den jordanske akademiker Mudar Zahran. Han og konen er fordrevet fra deres hjem i Uppsala af muslimers chikane.
“I just want to make a living but those Islamist crazies won’t leave us alone. They say they support jihad, they deal drugs, they get drunk and harass women. I swear to Allah, sometimes I feel I am not living in Malmö but in Afghanistan.” — Mr. S., Palestinian refugee from Jordan living in Sweden.
“I am religious, but I cannot accept what the Muslim fundamentalists have been doing to this country. I have had job offers to teach at major Swedish cities, but instead chose to go to a remote town where I would not have to see those fundamentalist immigrants.” — Muslim College Professor, northern Sweden.
A local businessman in Uppsala, said, “I just feel sad for the insults we get from many Arabs and Muslims in this town. We consider them Swedes; they consider us enemies. We are doing our job, we are protecting them, and we will never fail them or look down on them, why are we received with such hostility?”
In Uppsala, the fourth-largest city in Sweden and the seat of Archbishop of the Church of Sweden, a Swedish activist complained that the Muslim-dominated areas in Uppsala were “full of fundamentalists who are out of control… even the Swedish police fear going there because many Arab and Muslim youth will attack them with rocks. Even providers of Swedish state services are afraid to operate in the Muslim and Arab areas in Uppsala.”
A local police officer who spoke on the condition of anonymity — noting that he was not speaking in the name of the authorities — confirmed what the activist said. “Police cars that approach Arab and Muslim areas are regularly attacked with rocks,” he said. “At the moment, local Swedish authorities are not sure how to keep providing public services in those areas. They are even considering rolling back certain state services there. It is just too risky to operate in such a hostile environment. A few residents of the Arab-Muslim areas in Uppsala describe their neighborhoods as ‘Sharia areas where Sweden’s government is not welcome.'”
An elderly couple from Citykyrkan, in Stockholm, mentioned how they had to leave their home and relocate after their area had become dominated by Muslim immigrants. “What hurts me the most,” the woman said, “is that they smile to my face and hate me behind my back. We do not hate Muslims, but why is there all that hatred from some Muslims towards us? Our daughter’s ex-fiancé is a Muslim; he is intelligent and he has a legitimate job, why can’t his Muslim brothers act like him?”
The man said, “I am not sure where we are going in this country. We feel that we have lost our country forever to Islamists.”
