What hope is there for Sweden with fools like this in power.
Perhaps Alice Bah Kuhnke, minister of Culture and Democracy, knows little about the activities of ISIS in Syria. How else can you explain someone who hopes to reintegrate the Jihadis who mercilessly raped, beheaded and massacred their way from one end of Syria to the other.
Looks like she and the unfortunate Swedes are in for a rude awakening.
Returning ISIS fighters should be tried before a military tribunal and then shot.
Swedish minister says returning ISIS fighters should be integrated
A SWEDISH minister has been branded “ignorant” and “amateurish” after she suggested municipalities were expected to help integrate Islamic State fighters to the Scandinavian country.
By Lizzie Stromme, The Express, March 15, 2017:
Alice Bah Kuhnke, minister of Culture and Democracy made the remark on Sunday evening as she was quizzed on how Sweden should deal with jihadi defectors by the state broadcaster SVT.Ms Kuhnke said: “First of all if there are suspicions of crimes, they need to be investigated. And any such crimes should be punished.
“But after that we need structures locally, such as social services, around our country to integrate them back into our democratic society.”
More than 300 people have travelled from Sweden to join extremist cults in the Middle East and an estimated 150 have since returned, according to Sweden’s security service (Säpo).

Appearing on television programme Agenda, Ms Kuhnke was also challenged on how many of the jihadi fighters had been de-radicalised upon their return to the European nation.
She said: “No one knows.”She was then asked about how many people had been given support to integrate back into society, to which the government minister said: “About 10, 20, 30 people have been supported by our municipalities. That is too few.
“We must cooperate much better. Police, the social services and Säpo have to work together. There are many municipalities which don’t even know who is responsible.”
Liberal Party leader Jan Björklund hit out against the remarks, branding Ms Kuhnke’s comments “ignorant”.
Speaking to Expressen.se, he said: “The answers she gave were obviously wrong, she blamed authorities and municipalities, and seemed to want to free herself from responsibility.

“She seemed very ignorant. It’s very strange. It was quite obvious that the culture minister was ignorant of the issues, even though she knew what she was going to be interviewed about on television. [It left] a very amateurish impression.”Responding to the criticism of his minister, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said the suggestion that returning ISIS fighters were the responsibility of municipalities was wrong.
He said: “Terrorism is an extremely serious issue, it is about the security of citizens, therefore it is a clear national issue and a national responsibility, and a priority of the government.”
The Swedish PM also added he had every confidence in Ms Kuhnke as she herself has said some of the comments in the interview came across wrong.
