Kent Ekeroth, a member of parliament for the Sweden Democrats, asked some pointed questions of the government about the its policy of allowing mujahideen to return “home” to Sweden from the jihad in Syria and Iraq.
Deputy Prime Minister Åsa Romson gave a telling response. Notice that she doesn’t want to interdict the jihad warriors because that would not prevent all terrorist attacks. In other words, it’s better to let a hundred Swedes die at the hands of terrorists than prevent the death of ninety of them via sensible border controls.

|0:00||Follow up question, Kent Ekeroth from the Sweden Democrats.|
|0:02||Mr. Speaker, I was in contact with the National Task Force yesterday|
|0:06||and there have been no announcements about reinforcing their manpower,|
|0:09||and considering that the police are under-financed and the police fund the National Task Force,|
|0:14||there are still many question marks remaining when it comes to the National Task Force.|
|0:17||I had hoped for a straight answer from the government.|
|0:19||Another aspect is of course preventing terrorists from coming to Sweden in the first place.|
|0:25||The Sweden Democrats have suggested that we revoke citizenship for those who travel to participate in terror|
|0:29||and that we rebuild our border security to simply ensure that they neither are allowed nor can come in to the EU and Sweden.|
|0:36||The government has rejected this suggestion. In other words they welcome jihad warriors back to Sweden,|
|0:42||which is quite remarkable. I think that the Swedish people want a concrete answer to the question:|
|0:48||why does this government want Islamists, jihad warriors and IS murderers to come back to our country?|
|0:54||A concrete answer is requested. Thank you.|
|0:56||Thank you very much. Climate and Environment Minister Åsa Romson from the Green Party.|
|1:00||When we talk about the internal organization of the police we have to see if we can redistribute resources when necessary.|
|1:06||Obviously it is not only the National Task Force that works with the broad terror-readiness.|
|1:11||In the protection of different places it is not the inter… the National uhhh ahhhh Task Force that|
|1:19||is involved, it is the entire police organization.|
|1:21||Regarding the suggestions that the Sweden Democrats have made which they believe are the key that will|
|1:25||make it so that we won’t have any terror attacks in Sweden if we revoke the citizenship of individuals|
|1:32||who return after war for terrorists, then I think you see the problem from the wrong angle|
|1:39||because this would create a false sense of security. There will be many others that you won’t be able to stop in that way.|
|1:46||It is a lot better to look broadly at how we reduce recruiting in the Swedish society,|
|1:51||and also of course make sure that people who return from these kinds of environments|
|1:57||receive a very clear care-taking but also a legal hearing because that is what is required.
