Both Australia and Sweden are democratic countries and both have recently addressed the issue of Australian and Swedish ISIS ‘ fighters ‘ returning to their countries.
ISIS fighters of course are not your ordinary soldiers who follow the rules of war.’ ISIS fighters’ is a euphemism for Islamic terrorist fanatics who take women and children as sex slaves, who behead and torture non-Muslims, Christians and homosexuals and who rape women and children. They even massacre their own ‘ fighters’ if they try to leave. Yes truly they are the scum of the earth best served by a bullet between the eyes.
Australia and Sweden do not share my view and their governments have come up with two very different approaches towards these disgusting specimens of humanity.
The Swedish capital of Stockholm has released its new policy document for dealing with ISIS fighters returning to the city after having had their fill of rape and beheadings of civilians. At first blush it seems strange that such a document would be all of 9 pages.
I mean, “Shoot!” should only take up one page, even with a large font.
Oh well, let’s see how Stockholm intends to handle terrorist-trained and combat-hardened fanatics. Here are a few translated highlights to capture the gist of things:
“Post-perspective: When a person wishes to leave a violent extremist grouping or coming home from combat overseas, it is crucial to provide customized inclusion efforts. Even then, it is important to have a local cooperation between various actors. Voluntary organizations can provide targeted support and advice. Even faith communities working with advice, but also psychosocial support.
When it comes to people who participated in combat there is likely to be great need of health efforts. Therefore, it is important to establish cooperation between social services, social psychiatry and drug units, as well as health centers and psychiatric services (trauma, PTSD, etc.)
When it comes to security, it is important that cooperation between social services, income support, employment and other efforts by the Labour Department, as well as assistance with job placement.
Finally, the accommodation issue is a prerequisite that must work. Therefore, cooperative housing companies needs to be included in the post-perspective.”
To summarize: The city of Stockholm will make it a priority to provide the returning ISIS fighters with housing, free health care (physical and mental) and full financial support, until they have received earmarked jobs. All this of course fast-tracked past the line of law-abiding immigrants and indigenous Swedes.
Since they now provide all the recruitment incentives for joining ISIS, the only thing missing is a city-run recruitment office. Oh, wait. That would the Employment Office, where it was recently revealed that tax-paid clerks were recruiting for ISIS. Sorry, my mistake!
Then it’s time to make proactive efforts to discourage radicalization. The solution, the city concludes, is to pour tax money into muslim organizations already in contact with the at-risk persons:
“Support to associations and other stakeholders locally
There are examples of local actors which can contribute to efforts locally. For example, the Islamic Association and the mosque in Rinkeby-Kista has initiated education for interested parents and youths in the Järva area. It is very important to support such local initiatives. It is also important to involve local associations, some of which have contact with residents that the authorities do not come into contact with.”
As journalist and blogger Per Gudmundson points out, the Islamic Association of Sweden is a remarkably poor choice for “fighting Jihad” since it is the Swedish branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Their official motto reads:
“Allah is our goal, the prophet is our leader, the quran is our law, Jihad is our way, and death for the honor of Allah is our greatest desire!”
Gudmundson notes that they are in active combat in Syria at the moment, in coalition with Jabhat al-Nusrah which is a branch of al-Qaida.
Dual nationals who join terrorist groups will be stripped of their Australian citizenship under new laws expected to go before parliament this week.
The legislation will extend an existing power that lets the government take the citizenship off people who fight with foreign armies against Australia, Prime Minister Tony Abbott says.
“People who are fighting with terrorist groups overseas or who are engaged in terrorist activities here in Australia are effectively taking up arms against us,” Mr Abbott told reporters in Brisbane on Sunday.
“It’s very hard to imagine that we should allow to remain in the bosom of our country people who are trying to destroy us.” The measure could lead to second-generation Australians losing their status if they are also citizens of their parents’ birth country.
…Opposition Leader Bill Shorten wants to see details of the legislation before committing Labor to a position, although he noted the party was inclined to support the government on counter-terrorism matters.
The total and utter appeasement of these war criminals by the Swedish government is sick. These men have committed terrible crimes against humanity and they are rewarded for their evil with FREE everything.
Australia has the right idea. You do not reward evil you punish it. I would have thought that was basic common sense but apparently in Sweden, common sense is not very common. As for New Zealand there is no need to die waiting to find out what our government’s stance is. John Key does not agree with Australia so we can look forward to ISIS terrorists and their supporters living amongst us, planning terrorist attacks on our home soil and ‘ radicalising ‘ other New Zealanders.
If you thought a conservative government would protect us you would be wrong. Then again, National is Labour light.Then again even the Labour Party Leader in Australia supports the anti terrorism legislation put forward by Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s government. Our fellow ANZACs can see the danger. It is time all our political parties took off their politically correct blinkers and did what they are paid to do.
Protect New Zealand.
