Swedish "rape" article taken offline?

In the very first post I made on this blog, about an apparent Muslim rape epidemic in Sweden and Norway, I made a link to a story in Sydsvenskan, a Swedish newspaper for the Malmö region. The link is the first one given in red in the original story, in other words, this one. Now, the funny thing is, I just tried to click on the story again, and the original article seems to have disappeared. I just end up in the main page of the newspaper. Is this just me, or is anybody else experiencing the same thing? By searching, I did manage to find a related story, but not the same as the first one. I am 100 % certain that the link worked and was correct a few weeks ago. Did somebody decide to take it offline? This has reportedly happened at this newspaper before. A mosque in Malmö burnt to the ground a while ago. After it turned out that it was probably an "inside job" by Muslims themselves, some of the newspaper articles that had been made about the story quietly disappeared from the Internet.


UPDATE: A reader from the Czech Republic (who has to be Scandinavian) found the relevant article, just under a different URL. So it hadn't been taken offline after all. Still, when Aftenposten for instance changed their URLs for some articles they left the new URLs in the window. It is unprofessional of Sydsvenskan to just suddenly remove links that were only a few weeks old.

Sweden as we know has become a totalitarian country...

Fjordman - you identify the source as a newspaper . . .Can you obtain a photocopy of this article from the library? If so, scan it an preserve it.

This 'now we see it - now we don't' phenomenon seems to be on the rise.
I always cut/paste the text of an article I reference and keep a copy for future reference.

If you know a phrase or two perhaps you can still get a cached version from Google.

You might need to hurry before they purge that too.

I have begun copying text from various articles and saving them as a Word (or any other text format) file. I have found an increasing number of newspapers are going to paid subscriptions that have locked me out of interesting articles (the Copenhagen Post comes to mind).

Newspapers seem to have a habit of removing or altering online articles of things that may cause problems for them. I can't explain how, but you can cache web pages yourself for future reference.

I always save a copy of artcles that I read if they are of even just a little interest.

If they are not gone tomorrow, they are gone after some years.

You can read the full text of the articles at Copenhagen Post, but only for the same day, it seems. I will try to make full copies of important articles in the future. It's just so many links to copy.......

Still, it says a great deal about how bad Sweden really is if the article has indeed been removed. The Soviet Union under Stalin used to remove historical documents they didn't like. And now Sweden.......

Continue the fight in Norway Fjordman, I'll do the same over here in Belgium.

You're wrong, Fjordman...the article of which you speak never existed. It was really just an article about how the Swedish economic growth rate hit another record high, thanks to the steadfast and far-sighted leadership of the People's Party.

To think otherwise would be doubleplusungood.

Hmm.., now I'm a bit confused.

Checked your blog post, and the first link of the post goes to an article about the reported rapes that Ann Gustafsson, head of the Domestic Violence Unit at the Malmö Police is so happy about.

Could they have put it back again?

Maybe it's just me, but I really can't see it. Go to the "Muslim Rape Epidemic" thread, and click on the very first link marked in red. I did 20 seconds ago, and I was now brought to the main page of the newspaper, not to the rape article. I am absolutely sure the link worked before. I haven't changed it, and many people read my post before, too, without commenting it.

Hello fjordman,
Is this what you are looking for?

Google cache for this article is
here.

Maybe you have run into problems because sydsvenskan redaction published that article under more links and some of them are redirected/deleted now. In you original article I see your link in the folloving form:

http://w1.sydsvenskan.se//Article.jsp?article=10106613

BTW, your blog is pretty cool! Thank you for keeping us informed.

Greetings from Czech Republic

To you from the Czech Republic: Yes, it is, actually. Thanks. OK, I stand corrected and will edit my post accordingly. Still, when Aftenposten for instance changed their URLs for some articles they left the new URLs in the window. It is unprofessional of Sydsvenskan to just suddenly remove links that were only a few weeks old.

Huh fjordman,

I'm not of Scandinavian origin. I live in very glamorous part of my country with growing numbers of Dutchmen immigrants :). Apparently at least some of them are "white flighters".
