The Local _ Swedish news _ 19 ISIS fighters return to Stockholm

Posted by: Svedallas 4.Mar.2019, 09:53 PM

How on earth does Sweden allow IS criminals to just return?
It is very unsettling that we are amongst criminals, murderers...

19 IS fighters are now in Stockholm, alone.

But in the UK, and most of Europe, citizenship is revoked.

What kind of message is this sending to the ISIS fighters??
Disgusting.

I am embarrassed, ashamed and now, scared for Sweden.

It's the Liberal way, the only answer is to vote them out...

Some years ago I thought of buying my ancestral home and live out my days among my family...

Definitely not a thought anymore!!!

Pity...

What about a referendum on immigration???

Let the people speak!!!

Not a final decision. Might as well put a sign at Arlanda airport saying: Welcome

Hate to say this but your man Trump wants Europe to let them in. Wonder what he'd say if Europe rediverted this scum to the US.

The USA started all these problems. They should sort it out.

What should happen is that an international court should have them arrested and prosecuted

Posted by: skogsbo 5.Mar.2019, 10:11 AM

It's not these known 19 we should worry about. It's those that get back into Europe by other means. If you don't know who they are, where they are, it's impossible to monitor.

I agree, another predominately USA problem, that they don't have to suffer the consequences of.

I could not agree more!!

It is the US who destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.
Can you imagine if Saddam and Gaddafi were still alive?

The US continues to destroy the middle east, and the middle east continues to seek refugee in Europe.

Why are we paying for Americas poor political choices??
Why bomb and destroy countries, and not take their refugees??

Europe is paying for Americas choices.

Posted by: Bsmith 5.Mar.2019, 11:00 AM

As an American taxpayer, I'd be more than willing to get our soldiers out of the ME, Europe, Korea, Africa etc. and let every country protect itself. This policy of being the police for the entire world is bankrupting our country and causing ill will around the globe.

I agree with what you say, but many of these refugees have seen Europe (especially Sweden) as a soft touch to get work.
When I think of refugees I think women and children, this has not been the case.
This in turn gives them a chance to spread their religion and if you don't it the pathetic minnow group know as feminists call you a racist.

Precisely. The US government is spending more on the military, than they do on their own citizens! Let us not discuss the stupid wall that is going to cost billions, at the sake of hundreds of thousands Americans jobs.

If the US government did not meddle so much in other countries political wars, perhaps there would be healthcare and even fairly priced education. It is sad that the US is classified as a first world, yet in some states, there is such poverty.

The US needs to leave middle east, and africa. And focus on their own problems.
Also, this will save Europe. I am tired of paying for the US political problems.
And now, I have to work to a later pension age, because of this, because we cannot maintain the level of refugees that are flooding in...

You are totally right.
There are hundreds who use wars to their advantage.

Did you know there are hundreds of Pakistani, Afghan and Indians who came to Sweden and claimed to be Syrian, in 2015...Syria was a country that was in war, and by stating so, gave them immigrant priority with their application.

The same goes for Eritreans who lie that they are Somali or Sudanese...
MV are just plain stupid!

It is only now that they are doing tests, and dna tests.
But imagine the hundreds and thousands who have passed through before then...
The system is broken.

The only country i think that has their shit together is Denmark.

No offense, but don't wish that on me. I do absolutely f-king not want government healthcare or "free" post secondary education. Thank you very much, Bernie Sanders. Big government is inefficient and ponderous and f's up pretty much everything it touches. Take the money being spent on policing the world and the billions of foreign aid and invest in infrastructure, good K- 12 schools, encouraging R & D...that would do more good. Heck, I'd even be in favor of Trump's wall to keep the border secure. That, to me, is money well spent.


BTW, America has the fattest poor people in the world which goes a long way to explain the "poverty" that so many talk about. If the American govt. did not subsidize a "poverty" lifestyle, maybe some of the overweight tubbos could slim down by doing some actual work.

The healthcare is mainly for the poor.
I see the system as a sick cycle.

Cheap fast food, increase obesity, but then, charge ridiculous amounts on healthcare.
If you ask me, the healthcare industry is the richest industry, benefiting from those who cannot afford decent healthy food.

But this not about the American policies. This is about how America has played a very large impact into the wars in the middle east, and has thus, increased the refugees into Europe, and THUS, increased the European government spending...of no real fault of our own.

Why is my tax money paying for refugees? I want it to go to my future generation...and improve their future. Not people forced to flee because of bad political decisions.

Rice and beans are cheap. Vegetables are cheap. Planting a garden, even if it is a container garden, is a good source of inexpensive, nutritious food. Most of these people are fat because they eat a high fat, carbo-loaded diet and too much processed crap...which is expensive and unhealthy.


As to your other point, I do agree that I would rather see my tax dollars being spent on improving the future of the country for the citizens of said country. Investing in the poor will only guarantee more poor. Charity should be designed to offer a hand up not a hand out. People who can support themselves and their children live a more dignified and productive, and I believe happier, life.

Posted by: Gamla Hälsingebock 5.Mar.2019, 04:03 PM

Before we make the US the bad guy here lets consider that the US was supported by Europe in all these Near East disasters and did most of the work there...and by that I mean the dying!!!

And if it is only the US that is to be blamed, then why are the refugees that Europe has kindly taken in attacking their benefactors???

They must think Europe is a bad guy too!!!

I love the way politicians screw the world up!!!

I completely agree.

So, do you think cutting of benefits will increase employment?
I think that there is adverse reaction in Sweden. Instead, we are left with increased crime.

The past 6 months with gang crime in Sweden has been sky high.
Talk about fake news, TL has not mentioned it. But they put "What s that noise" a repeated post every month.

About 2 weeks ago, there was a shooting a day. This went on for about 12 straight days...
https://www.expressen.se/ledare/kriminella-ska-inte-vardas-hemma-hos-mamma/

I think Sweden is a dead end road for many immigrants.
They have language barrier, many have no education, they cannot gain skills.
So what now? Besides crime?

I think that reducing benefits, and increasing penalties will be the first step.

For countries like Germany and Sweden we are past the point of no return. Stripping a few people of citizenship is nothing more than a symbolic gesture when you’ve let in thousands of undocumented people from the regions IS controlled, many of which could be and probably are fighters.

Close supervision...I hope he is standing at Arlanda airport with a sign welcoming the ISIS terrorists.

We are Europe's laughing stock when it comes to this issue.
I am not surprised that Denmark closed the border from Sweden. Can you blame them?

We are the mecca for ISIS.

In many cases obesity is caused by cheap high cab foods. People who have the money to buy more healthier foods do not normally put on weight.

This scum has so much hatred inside them that they are a danger to society. They spread their hatred on to others like rats breed, they are just pure vermin.

Posted by: Uncle Fred 5.Mar.2019, 04:32 PM

I think that if an immigrant commits a crime of any type, not only the criminal but their entire family should be deported.
This may give the police a meaning for their work.

But still Sweden welcomes them with open arms.
And, if found guilty 6 years prison, in the vacation prison.

They are banned from Europe for a reason.

Now what Sweden is doing is putting the rest of Europe at risk thanks to freedom of movement. I think other European countries should stand up to Sweden and say that this is wrong.

Denmark and Finland have done the smart thing by closing the borders. They want nothing to do with our ridiculous immigration policies. They have had enough too...

It seems that we will just attract more and more skum.

Then I also suggest you google, Oil pipeline USA and Middle East.
There are many conspiracy theories, but it remains, this all started with oil...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH9zjozwNF8



The root of the problem is still. The US military destroyed the middle east, and put European countries at risk due to the US politicians decisions.

Gaddafi despite his faults had Libya in order, he also knew that if Libya went to shambles, that this would be the bridge for all refugees and economic migrants into Europe. There are countless videos and articles about this. He may have been crazy. But he kept order. This ideology cannot be controlled. And as fierce as the dictators were. They are the only ones who can handle it.

Europe cannot handle the disaster that is only just beginning.

Posted by: Gamla Hälsingebock 5.Mar.2019, 05:16 PM

I know about this and we could go back to even further to the time before islam. Christ whether you believe it or not was said to be born jewish in Bethlehem. So jewish people must have populated the region 2000 years ago. Wikipedia states that Bethlehem suffered a Muslim conquest in 637 which changes many things (I see a history lesson coming).
Now I am not a religious person but I do know the jews have been persecuted for hundreds of years, this I fail to understand. I have never had a jewish person bother me. Antisemitism is rife in Sweden especially from the latest immigrants as well as other groups. Antisemitism is also found in other parts of the world, this I don't understand. Hitler blamed the jews???????


One interesting thing, while typing this, The Locals spell checker failed to recognise the word jew or jewish. Don't know if it is my settings.

I'm with you on the history...Supposedly discrimination against the Jewish people has/had its beginnings in the fact that the Jews do not accept Christ as the messiah and son of God as the Christians did/do...

To them he was a "renegade" Rabbi...

If you consider that the Swedes are anti Jewish, consider this:

There is a world of difference between "Israeli" politics and being against those that practice Judaism...

Add to the mix is the assassination of Folke Bernadotte the cousin of the Swedish King and a member of Swedish Royalty by the Israelis while trying to bring peace negotiations to an acceptable conclusion for both parties...

For a country with a small population(then)this is a memory that remains...

Think Israeli rather than Jewish...

Swedes are not anti Jewish.
Majority are atheist and indifferent to any type of religion.

However the influx of muslims, are making it more an anti-muslim, more than anything...
And, with this has created antisemitism.

Trump is a clown. But what he has done globally, is increase hate crimes on both.

Think Israeli rather than Jewish, this is a difficult one. I must admit I didn't know about Folke Bernadotte, surprised to read about it. But the group who carried out the assignation were an extreme jewish group who were also fighting the British. So that's jewish not Israel. The complete history is a mess and how you unravel it I don't know. Looking the history of israel is something in itself, but the word jew is very prominent.

Is it just me or are others experiencing this failure of the spell checker to recognise jew or jewish.

For some reason, this particular corner of the world has been warring for thousands of years...now add oil to the mix and you have reached a flashpoint.

And, Uncle Fred, you can eat healthy on a budget. As I said, rice, beans and vegetables are cheap and nutritious. Also, back in the day, everyone had a garden to help out with the grocery bill...even people in the city. Many even kept chickens as a source of fresh eggs and meat. Now, people are too lazy. When I go to the store and see what the poor are buying with their food stamps and SNAP cards, it is the stuff I can't afford and wouldn't put in my body in the first place.

So you think the Truman NWO isn't working out for you? Why do you think you pay almost nothing for 1L of petrol?

Why do you think you pay almost nothing in income taxes?

Why do you think the US buck is a/the world currency?

The mighty USA has been the "World Police" quite willingly, so as to (attempt) to control world politics and ultimately trade to its own favour. Trumpty Dumpty can't comprehend that.

Expensive? Sure. But it takes money to make money.

Universal healthcare coupled with private healthcare works quite OK (or at least it "can"). The problem with "Obamaramacare" was how it was implemented. It could have been done in a way that the same result was achieved, without your monthly healthcare payments tripling to cover the costs.

Nothing in income tax? You are severely misinformed. Not as bad as Sweden but at least in Sweden you receive a bit back. Between state and federal, and the requisite fees and licenses, I'd estimate 20-25% just for income related taxes. Then, add on Social Security and Medicare, sales taxes and other hidden fees...I'd say that the high 30's % is what the middle class is paying. Of course, if you are poor, it is much less and if you are wealthy and have tax dodges, it is also less of a percentage. IMO.

And, yes, the price of gas should be higher to reflect and mitigate the damage caused to the environment. Maybe then people would ditch the gas guzzlers in favor of more fuel efficient rides.

Finally, I do realize that most of the world police action is to favor trade but there is an element of "we need to keep the world safe" mentality. Personally I think it is bunk. Most of the US meddling only worsens the situation in the long run. But then, what do I know, I am but a simple wood shop teacher...

At last some form of intelligent post from gsurya. For a small statment says a lot. Christians in the UK a 1000 years ago carried many barbaric practises such as torchers, flogging, dismemberment, blinding, beheading, stoning, crucifixion, premature burial and death by burning. Excuse the pun, but thank god things have quietened some what today.
As for mislead and oppress its followers, especially women. This is pointing directly to islam of today were suicide bombers are told that they will have 72 virgins if they carry out their barbaric crimes and that women do not have the same rights as men, are treated as second class and forced to wear clothing which is intended to hide them. Women also face the possibility of genital mutilation.

Well done gsurya, looking forward to more positive statements from you.

It is like saying all the fully grown men are actually under 18.
But in actual fact many are over 25+
