Proof yet again that they couldn’t properly vet Muslim settlers streaming into their country. How many more of these are still circulating around the country?
Oh, and he brought his Sunni vs. Shiia adversarial mentality with him. That’s the cultural enrichment the ruling elite are clapping like seals about. Also, whenever you hear about an Islamic center/beachhead (mosque) being torched or vandalized, always have that Sunni vs. Shiia dynamic in the back of your mind.
Malmö ‘Isis member’ accused of terrorism for fire at Islamic centre
Nobody was injured in the fire at a community centre in Malmö owned by Shia Muslim organization Aldorr, but repair costs amounted to a million kronor ($113,000)
The 30-year-old suspect, who denies the charges and the allegations he is a member of Isis, is accused of throwing Molotov cocktails at the centre on October 11th last year, causing smoke damage to the building.
In December, Malmö’s district court judged in a remand hearing that, contrary to the chief prosecutor’s wishes, there was not enough evidence to consider the fire a terror incident and instead remanded him in custody on suspicion of arson.
But on Monday the prosecutor insisted that the man is affiliated with Isis and charged him with a “terror offence, alternatively arson”. The charge sheet, seen by The Local, argues that “this arson could seriously have harmed the state of Sweden. The purpose of the attack was to seriously intimidate a population group, in this case Shia Muslims, in the name of Isis,” adding that the man is a Sunni Muslim who has expressed dislike of Shia Muslims.
According to the charge sheet, police searching his computer found a description of how to make a detonator, which the prosecutor argues shows he has knowledge of how to make bombs. Police also found propaganda films showing Isis soldiers fighting and killing “infidels” and a picture of an Isis flag.
Prosecutor Agnetha Hilding Qvarnström said on Monday that the man had told other people he wanted to die “a martyr’s death”. This had emerged “in Facebook conversations, among other things”, she told The Local.
