Counter Terror Expert: Green Party May Have Been Infiltrated By Islamists

A senior security expert has spoken out following the high-profile resignation of a government minister and the defenestration of others from Sweden’s Green Party, expressing his concern that it may have been successfully infiltrated by Islamist entryists. Speaking to Swedish media, the chief of the Centre for Asymmetric Threat Studies at the Swedish National Defence College Lars Nicandersaid “it is clear they are trying to access positions of trust”. Far from this being a new development, the veteran security expert said he feared the party had already been infiltrated by Islamists. He said the entryism was the same as the method used by the Soviet Union during the Cold War, which spent decades infiltrating political parties and other organisations, reports Aftonbladet. Mr. Nicander said of this move: “we can see a very similar effect today where people close to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist party, apparently gaining large footholds in the Green Party”. Explaining why it was particularly the Green Party which had been targeted for infiltration, Mr. Nicander pointed to the particular philosophy espoused by proponents of Green politics — humanism. Because Greenism is a “peace movement”, he said they “have not learned that one should examine people’s values. They are naive”.
