Keep an eye on the Sweden Democrats, they are gaining strength from a populace fed up with uncontrolled Muslim immigration and the resulting crime, rape and welfare overload that always accompanies it.
The Local (h/t Colin W) “We’re presenting a new team today,” Jimmie Åkesson said at a press conference. Åkesson presented Richard Jomshof, a former high school teacher who was previously the editor in chief for the Sweden Democrat paper SD–Kuriren, as the replacement for former justice policy spokesman Kent Ekeroth who stepped down on Wednesday.
The Local Jomshof has previously likened Islamism to Nazism in the publication, a view he showed no signs of abandoning on Thursday. “I’ve also compared Islamism with National Socialism and Communism. I stand by that. I think it’s a completely reasonable comparison,” he told TT.
Jomshof was then asked whether he equates Islamism to the religion Islam. “Islam is an ideology. That doesn’t mean there is only one direction within Islam or that all Muslims think the same. There are different directions in all ideologies.”
Party leader Åkesson did not dismiss his colleague’s statements. “It depends on how you make the comparison. Now we’re seeing an example in Gaza and other conflicts where extreme Islamists are involved, sometimes using the same symbols that the Nazis used,” he said. “Such a comparison can in certain cases be relevant.”
The Local Some 6,000 members of the Sweden Democrats will be receiving an anti-Islam newspaper at the end of the month, courtesy of the party.
“Dispatch International is a paper that plays an important role in the societal debate,” MP and editor in chief for the Sweden Democrat paper SD–Kuriren, Richard Jomshof, told local paper Sydsvenskan.
The publication, which is connected to the Swedish anti-Islam group “Freedom of the Press Society” (Tryckfrihetssällskapet), recently featured an article where a professor argues that the Muslim call to prayer should not only be seen as that but also as a threat.
Jomshof told the paper that he doesn’t think that sending the publication along with the Sweden Democrat paper is in any way in breach of the party’s recent zero-tolerance policy against racism.
“The newspaper can hardly be seen as racist. Islam is not a race and not all Muslims are of the same race,” Jomshof told the paper.
A 15-year-old student mailed the Sweden Democrats seeking the party’s view on Islam for a school project and received a link to a website showing close-up photos of mutilated, decapitated and burned bodies. (Below are the actual photos of what Muslims did to the Buddhists in Southern Thailand that were released by the Thai government)
The Local “I was shocked. I had no idea how I was supposed to respond to his mail. I can’t describe the feeling, the photos were so horrible,” the student, named as Johan, told the Svenska Dagbladet daily.
The teenager was tasked with writing a project about Islam and was told to gather information and attitudes to Islam.
He mailed an address on the Sweden Democrats website intended for “general questions about the Sweden Democrats or the party’s national policy” and received a reply from Ted Ekeroth, a Lund county councillor.
Ekeroth sent Johan the link which he explained shows victims of Islamic terrorism in southern Thailand. The photos include bloodied bodies and body parts including close ups of severely burned corpses and beheaded torsos.
The link was attached in response to a question from the 15-year-old on whether the Sweden Democrats think the media presented a balanced view of Islam.
