'Green Party may have been infiltrated by Islamists'
Lars Nicander, director of the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defence College, fears that the Green Party, the junior partner of the Social Democrats in the Swedish coalition government, has been infiltrated by Islamists.
Making reference to the recent controversies involving Green Party politicians, Mehmet Kaplan and Yasri Khan, Nicander, speaking to Swedish television channel, TV4, drew parallels with the way the Soviet Union tried to infiltrate political parties and organizations during the Cold War.
"I see a similarity to how Soviet communism was acting during the Cold War when it tried to infiltrate the various democratic parties."
