Sweden: Shia Muslims fearful of returning Islamic State jihadis

The Shia Muslim community in Sweden is concerned about its safety “if Islamic State militants return home.” Unfortunately for the Shia, Leftist Swedes believe that it is “racist” for Sweden not to embrace Swedish jihadis as they would any other Swedish citizen. Many other nations, such as Canada, hold the same view.

Leftists and the many charlatans who are gainfully employed in the anti- “racism” industry have managed to exacerbate racial divisions. In this industry, those who do not fit their narrative do not exist. Muslims who are threatened by other Muslims do not exist; neither do blacks who are killed by blacks. In their world, only whites can be oppressors and aggressors, only whites can be “colonialists” and “Zionists.” There is no forgiveness for past wrongs and no acknowledgment of current wrongdoing by Muslims worldwide. In this view, human rights is based on identity politics, not on the principle of equal rights for all.

“Omran Hashem, the chairman of the cultural centre, said that many Shia in Sweden are threatened by Sunni extremists saying that groups like Islamic State and al-Qaeda ‘threaten us in our home countries and now also here.’” Hashem also stated that “we have had a lot of problems with terrorist groups in my home country and came here to live in peace, but how can we feel secure when we can be neighbours to murderers?,” and he went on to discuss a threat he received from an unidentified jihadist  following his warnings about returning Islamic State jihadists years ago. The man said:

 You don’t know me but we know you because you have said a little about us. It will come one day when we get power in all of Sweden and then you will regret it.

It was inevitable that all the characteristics of Islamic states, including jihad violence, would enter Western nations via open borders policies. Leftist leaders are putting all of their citizens at risk, including visible minority immigrants, while they call those who oppose open borders “anti-immigrant” and “racist.” The jihad is against all infidels regardless of race, a fact that Leftists ignore or deny outright. They enable the jihad against the West, as they are manipulated and used by Islamic supremacists:

While others, such as populist Sweden Democrats leader Jimmie Åkesson, have called for Sweden to ban Islamic State members from coming back to Sweden, Prime Minister Stefan Lovfen has said the country will not strip radicals of citizenship.

“Swedish Shia Muslims Express Fear over Returning Islamic State Fighters,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, March 20, 2019:

Members of the Swedish Shia Muslim community in the city of Örebro say they concerned for their safety if Islamic State militants return home.

The Ahl Al-Bait Cultural Centre in the Oxhagen district of Örebro say they have been forced to hire guards at their building due to the potential threats from Sunni Islamic State extremists who see them as an enemy, broadcaster SVT reports.

Omran Hashem, the chairman of the cultural centre, said that many Shia in Sweden are threatened by Sunni extremists saying that groups like Islamic State and al-Qaeda “threaten us in our home countries and now also here.”

Mr Hashem also relayed a personal story from several years ago saying that following his anti-Islamic State comments in local media a man has threatened him.

“He said, ‘you don’t know me but we know you because you have said a little about us. It will come one day when we get power in all of Sweden and then you will regret it’,” Hashem said.

Speaking on the subject of returning fighters he said, “When they come back and know that there is a Shia mosque here, of course, we are afraid of it. They might come in and hurt someone.”

“We have had a lot of problems with terrorist groups in my home country and came here to live in peace, but how can we feel secure when we can be neighbours to murderers?” he added.

The fears may not be unfounded, as in the last several years there have been attacks on Shia buildings with Sunni radicals suspected to be involved in both Malmö in 2016 and in Järfälla in 2017.
