You just can’t make this stuff up: “Swedes” who made hijra to Syria to fight in the jihad for the Islamic State are allowed to avail themselves of welfare benefits when they return to Sweden — to help them “reintegrate” into Swedish society.

Confirmed: IS Terrorists get a free driver’s license and housing in Sweden
Those Muslims returning to Sweden after fighting for the terrorist organization Islamic state in the Middle East are offered taxpayer-financed driver’s education, free housing and even debt forgiveness.
Swedish Radio (SR) spoke to Christoffer Carlsson, the author of a report at the National Coordination Against Violent Extremism, who comes up with examples of how the terrorists can be “reintegrated” into Swedish society with the help of state funding.
“It’s simply a social, economic and material question. It you have to reintegrate back into the job market, you may need to have a driving license, debt forgiveness and housing. When people leave (IS?), they want to start something else, and if they don’t have the resources to do it, it will be difficult to make it a reality,” says Christoffer Carlsson.
Without that kind of help at the Swedish taxpayers’ expense, there is a risk that terrorists “won’t manage” to leave the Muslim extremist environment, stresses Carlsson.
Anna Sjöstrand, the municipal coordinator against violent extremism in Lund, also participates in SR’s reports. She points out that one cannot deny the terrorists tax benefits merely because they made a “wrong choice”.
“We cannot just say that because you made a wrong choice, you have no right to come back and live in our society,” says Anna Sjöstrand to SR.
