Islamophobia propaganda and jihadists spread throughout Sweden, nothing changes.
Michael Nikolai Skråmo, who also calls himself Abo Ibrahim Al Swedi, has starred in an ISIS propaganda video during which he gives practical and motivational encouragement to would-be jihadis.
What makes him so special is that two years ago he was a multiculturalist and an Islamophobia expert in Sweden. Now he’s in Syria fighting with terrorists.
He moved with his family to IS-controlled Syria in 2014.
His twitter account has been suspended, perhaps because he’s calling for attacks on Sweden. This is according to a report from Svenskar, a Swedish newspaper. There are at least 80 Swedes fighting in Syria.
There are Swedes in Syria fighting against ISIS.
At the same time, there is a growing number of jihadists in Sweden and the intelligence services are worried. Perhaps people like al Swede spreading Islamophobia propaganda is a problem.
The security chief is alarmed
The problem is the security chief in Sweden is deeply concerned and shocked by the alarming increase in the number of jihadists in Sweden.
Anders Thornberg, the head of the Swedish Security Service (Sapo), said only a handful of militants wanted to carry out attacks. Some sympathize with terrorists, others recruit, spread the message and collect funds.
“We have never seen anything like this before,” Thornberg told national news agency TT. “The growth in extremism is a challenge of historical proportions,” he said.
Most terrorists live in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmo and Orebro.
The Swedes have tightened laws, increased funding for police and they’ve added cameras. The one thing they haven’t done is close their borders until they have their situation under control but they won’t. That would be politically incorrect.
Are they dealing with the core problem?
Attacks no longer need months of preparation, the chief said.
“Today, if you decide to act, you maybe buy two knives or hire a truck and drive into a crowd,” he said.
Sweden was once among the most peaceful nations in the world.
