Well, we keep saying here at the Tundra Tabloids that Leftist-Islamic nexus is real and that they share a very striking similar ideology, and proof that the mohammedan ideology is a threat to Western values and its free market system. Read up, this Swedish Muslim convert lays it all out on the table. One thing he didn’t mention though, he more than likely has it in for Jews as well, before and after his conversion to the death cult of Mohamed. KGS

NOTE: The TT believes that the Swedish convert to Islam is a coward, it explains his mindset (early on in the article) more than anything else. More than likely he’s someone that feels the need to be a part of a bigger community, because as an individual, he’s not that secure, so going from one totalitarian system of beliefs to another isn’t too much of a stretch. I’m reminded of Paul Berman’s book ” terror and liberalism”, where he describes dedicated Marxists during the late 20’s and 30’s exchanging their shirts for Hitler’s brown, then back again after WWII, without causing them any intellectual pain. We now see the same happening once again.

MUSLIM WORLD: Young European man explains why he converted to Islam

The story of Malcolm is intriguing, and perhaps a bit puzzling.
Why would a left-leaning young man from one of the world’s most secular and liberal countries choose to become a pious Muslim?
The 34-year old Swedish music teacher from Stockholm, who asked that his last name not be published, attempted to explain his decision, describing it as the culmination of a long journey searching for faith and him solidifying his religious beliefs that he couldn’t always place.
“I have never doubted my faith,” he told Babylon & Beyond while on a recent visit to Beirut. “It feels like I’ve had the same faith all the time but it feels so cleanly formulated in Islam.”
For Malcolm, becoming a Muslim gave him a connection to others in a country where identity is not always clean-cut.
“I feel very comfortable as a Muslim…. We’re social creatures and we want to feel a sense of belonging,” he said. “If it’s not a clan it’s a nation or a soccer team. For me it’s nice to have a belonging which is not a nation or a football team.”
Growing up in predominantly Protestant Sweden, Malcolm’s doubts about his faith lingered as he got older.
He started to study different religions and read philosophy texts. He felt drawn to Islam and fascinated by its teachings, especially to what he says is the religion’s focus on seeking knowledge.
He used the Internet to learn about Islam and the Koran, dedicating many hours in front of his computer learning how to recite the Koran and memorizing its chapters.
Malcolm wasn’t the only member of his family who embraced Islam. His brother, too, became a Muslim.
The day he “officially” became a Muslim some three years ago will be forever ingrained in his memory.
He had attended Friday prayer service in the grand mosque of Stockholm, when after the program an Imam reached for the microphone and called out in the loudspeakers before the jampacked crowd: “Now, we have a brother here who will say the Shahada,” the Muslim declaration of belief.
The room became quiet as the blond-haired, blue-eyed Swede got up from his seat and started to read out the text alongside the imam in Arabic. From a stand above in the women’s section, his Muslim wife was watching him. 
“It felt big. When it was over everyone came up to hug and congratulate me … one guy from Morocco gave me a kaftan as a gift,” Malcolm said.
Since then, then 34-year old strictly observed the rules of Islam. There is no more pork on his dinner plate or drinking of alcohol, no gambling in casinos on the weekends. During the holy month of Ramadan, he fasts. Whenever he can, he attends Friday prayer service at a mosque. 
His brother, he said, observered Islam even more strictly.
What’s the appeal? In part, Malcolm said, Islam fits in well with his left-wing views. “In that sense, Islam fits me really well,” he said. “I am completely against capitalism.”
