Oh, and Finnish TV aired an interview of the mosque’s imam this morning, and he was worried about…..the rise of Islamofauxbia.
Here’s a teaser:
For half a year I infiltrated the mosque at Medborgarplatsen-Stockholm, and what I found there really scared me. The government’s and parliament’s unwillingness to rehabilitate the Million Programme [ed: low-cost housing projects]has led to militant Muslims having a recruiting base in Sweden. It’s very easy for them to recruit somebody who is unemployed, doesn’t know the language and lives in a poor neighborhood. They promise to give them a lot of family to their family if they die in the name of Allah.
The statement from the Imam and the Swedish Islamic Association is just a game for the gallery. They have completely lost control over the ‘communities’ in Sweden. The fact is that people from the al-Qaeda terrorist network are recruiting Swedish Muslims of all ages on an on-going basis for the holy war of Jihad.
The imam knows precisely who they are and could have easily contacted SÄPO, but chose not to do this. I could never understand why, despite my attempt to find out. I’m not claiming that he indirectly supported this, but sometimes I wondered..
Esther has the full scoop on the story:
Stockholm: Extremists recruiting for Jihad in city’s Grand Mosque
Daniel Arrospide, a local politician for the Green Party in Stockholm, infiltrated the city’s grand mosque (the Södermalm mosque) for half a year. There he met a group of about ten people who recruited Swedish Muslims to holy war. (See his article below)
“There are extreme groups in that mosque who recruit people for terror attacks,” Arrospide told Norwegian TV 2 Nyhetene (NO).
Q: For al-Qaeda?
Arrospide says that the imam knew that there are people in the community who belong to extreme groups. There were attempts to recruit people without work or employment and with poor prospects for the future to extreme actions.
“If the person is single, they pay him a little money. If he has a family, they promise him a lot of money to the family in case he chooses to die in the name of Allah.”
Q: Was there a lot of talk of Jihad in the mosque?
A: Yes, there was a lot of talk about Jihad in the mosque
Q: What did they say about Jihad?
A: That you should continue the war against the impure and infidels.
Q: Against Swedes?
A: Against Swedes, yes
Saturday’s suicide bomber didn’t surprise Daniel Arrospide.
