Green MP likens jihadists to WWII freedom fighters
A Green Party MP has caused a stir after likening Swedish jihadists in Syria to Swedish freedom fighters in Finland during World War Two.
The comments came on Tuesday during a seminar in Almedalen about Islamophobia. On hand were Integration Minister Erik Ullenhag and Green Party MP Mehmet Kaplan, who is the former spokesman for the Muslim Council of Sweden.
While the talk was mostly about Islamophobia, matters took a turn when the integration minister said that there was a problem with young Muslims heading to Syria to be jihadists, according to political scientist Stefan Olsson, who was on the scene.
