This threat is sometimes expressed by the conspiracy theory “Eurabia”. The essay focus on political statements from the Swedish political party: the Sweden Democrats. The analysis, which is a mixture of content and argumentation analysis, will be centered on the question if one can find Islamophobic elements in these political statements and in the Sweden Democrats election movie from 2010.
