Lets play guess who?
The Helsingin Sanomat hides the identity of the people Finnish security police chief, Lasse Anttila, believes have contacts to Islamic terrorist groups abroad. Must be those pesky Americans again! How unprofessional for the Helsinki paper which prides itself as being a learning tool for the public, to force the reader to look between the lines and guess which people the HS journalist is talking about. Political correct nonsense. The people in question are of course Somalies and other Muslims from N.African countries and from elsewhere in the Levant. KGS
According to Security Police (SUPO) several dozen people staying or have stayed in Finland, have links to international terrorism.
According to the head of SUPO’s counter-terrorism unit, Lasse Anttila, it may be that part of the linkages are normal contacts with relatives. But it is also among people, for example, who are known to favor a violent radical ideology.
Some individuals, according to SUPO, have been willing to leave Finland for armed conflict in crisis areas.
According to Anttila, it would not be a surprise if some had participated in combat or in terrorist training camps.
“In taking into account the experience of other countries, we must be realists in this case,” Anttila says.
According to SUPO, there has been well-kept links with various organizations from Finland.
“There is both a radical Islamist and separatist [autonomy] organizations. These are the very same organizations as in the other Nordic countries,” Anttila says.
For example, in Sweden, the authorities have told us that they have followed inside their borders those including al-Qaeda and Al-Shabaabia.
The threat of terrorism against Finland at the moment, according to Anttila is minor. SUPO has so far not found any thing that would have led to investigations of terrorist crimes up in Finland.
According to SUPO, no one suspected of terrorism has been deported from Finland.
