- Sweden Has Become for Jihadists ‘What Argentina Was for Nazis’: MP Slams Govt Over ISIS Inaction
Moderate Party MP Hanif Bali railed against Sweden’s ruling party for letting jihadist fighters take refuge in the country, demanding that the government apologizes to people for not taking any action.
Bali made the comments in a debate with Green Party spokesman Rasmus Ling on Thursday. The outspoken MP criticized both the ruling Social Democratic Party and the Green Party for failing to produce legislation years ago which might have prevented the alleged terrorist influx.
“These [jihadist] trips have been happening for several years now, but you haven’t done anything,” Bali exclaimed, suggesting that it was already too late to take the kind of action necessary to handle the problem.
He also placed some fault on his own party, including former prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. “Are you ready to take responsibility?” he asked Ling, suggesting that both he and his bewildered opponent look into the camera and apologize for dropping the ball.
“Sweden has become what Argentina was for the Nazis. Only, after World War II, they actually introduced retroactive legislation and got the Nazis sentenced. Had [the Swedish government] been in power then, no Nazis would have been convicted.”
