Stefan Lofven, Sweden’s Prime Minister and the leftist Socialist Party leader has ruled out the possibility of stripping Swedish Islamic State Fighters of their citizenships and has said that they have the right to come back to the country.

Nyheter Idag recently reported that Löfven stated the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had previously warned those who were traveling in and around the region in which IS had been fighting, that those individuals who were captured shouldn’t anticipate any assistance from the Swedish government at a consular level.

The prime minister did, however, state that he would refrain from stripping the Islamic State fighters of their Swedish citizenship, asserting that it was their right to return to the country if they desired. He then said that upon their return, it would be up to the intelligence service and law enforcement to keep track of the returning terrorist whereabouts and to potentially arrest and prosecute them.
Löfven’s statement lies in stark contrast with what right-wing populist leader of the Sweden Democrats, Jimmie Åkesson, had to say regarding the issue. Åkesson stated, “If they choose to travel away to support the terrorist organization Islamic State, in my opinion, they have used up all of their rights to call themselves Swedish. Then they should also not be a citizen.”

In a reaction to the shocking comments given by Löfven, Paula Bierler, the Sweden Democrat’s migration policy spokeswomen, agreed with Åkesson, writing, “The people who left Sweden to join the Islamic State should be considered to have terminated their Swedish citizenship.”

Since 2012, at least 150 of the approximately 300 terrorists that left the country to fight for the Islamic State have now returned back to Sweden. According to Jan Jönsson, a local politician, at least 19 of these Islamic State terrorists are currently living in the Swedish Capital of Stockholm.

In Malmö, a southern city that’s become infamous for its no-go zones and significant Middle Eastern and North African migrant population, around twenty or so former Islamic State terrorists have purportedly been operating underground and illegal mosques and using them to recruit new radical Islamic terrorists for their jihad against the West.

Michael Helders, an anti-violence extremism activist, stated that former IS fighters are often ‘seen as heroes for young people who are at risk and radicalized.’ He added that “It increases concern, of course, and creates instability. People are worried about their children.”

Of the 300 Islamic terrorists that left Sweden to join Islamic State and other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, about half have returned to Sweden, whereas 50 are thought to have been killed, while another 100 remain in the Middle East.

As the dismantling of the Islamic State continues, we can expect this issue to remain at the forefront of political debate in many western European countries.

  1. Hell no! Hand them a gun and point them towards NATO troops, they will take care of the rest.

  2. It should be very obvious to anyone the SCOURGE of LEFTIE THINK is an epidemic around the globe. The childish stupidity is mindboggling!

  3. Well I hope Stefan is the first to get wacked by the Islamist’s….he deserves it for trying every thing he can to destroy Sweden!

  4. WHY DO YOU KEEP ASKING THESE STUPID QUESTIONS????????????????????????????????????

  5. No declared combatant of ISIS or any terrorist group shall be allowed into anr even back into the USA, it’s territories and key allies where the US has military bases. The law is clear and there is no reason top change it. This is how terrorist worka dnlie to get into and play havoc on our people and country. Enforce the law and make examples of htose who try to get left wing Democrats to seek stealth amendments to grant them return or entry. Their actions constitiute Sedition and Subversion and they must be charged, imprisoned and removed from office.

  6. NO and absolutely NO. Do not let them back into any country they left to fight fir isis.

  7. If they have returned to your country and are living in the capital, great. That means that they will eventually rise up and claim your country for Islam. You will see them fighting as terrorists again, only in your streets. They should have remained in their adopted new home country, Syria or Iraq. They would be in their element there.

  8. ISIS fighters are terroist they should not be allowed ever to return.
    I would suggest picking them all up and house them in Gitmo for a 100 years so they can no longer cause harm to anyone ever again.

  9. ISIS fighters should NOT be allowed to return. When they took up arms against our country, USA, they became enemies of our country.

  10. They made a choice to leave and fight. In some cases they fought military members from their own countries. If anything they should be tried for treason. It would be a slap in the face to their countrymen who died fighting these traitors.

  11. Yes they should be allowed to return! How else can we try them for Treason, and sentence them to hang by the neck, until dead, in a public forum?

  12. Should ISIS Fighters be Allowed to Return? No But if they are they should be put on trial.

  13. Only in handcuffs to be sentenced for treason otherwise no way no how and sentencing isn’t jail time either if you get my point.

  14. I agree with Rob. How can we trust them to be a lover of this country when they have already disowned it once. She is probably a spy for them and will help ISIS set up terrorism. She should be treated as a Trad’er just like Hillary should be.

  15. No Isis fighters, sympathic supporters, or their families should be allowed back to the United States
    They are traitors and they left to fight with ISIS and have no RIGHTS as Americans any longer. When they left with the intention to do harm and take lives of others they gave up their RIGHTS under US citizenship.

    This woman that wants to come back now, I say absolutely NOT as she made her choice and took action against the US and she can stay where she is – she made that choice and why should we accept her lies now. Leave her wherever she is and allow none of these traitors back on US soil. I think they only want to bring their evil to our soil. Wake up America before it is too late. The Democrats and liberals have destroyed our government and now want to finish those that upheld the Constitution of the US and ask God to watch over us. Before it is too late the American people better wake up and say enough is enough.

  16. All the men & women who lost their lives fighting ISIS will never come home because of radicals like her and the radical groups she gave up her country for…..
    NO She should never be allowed in the USA again.

  17. Sure. ISIS fighters should be welcomed back with gratitude. Just so long as they killed a few while they were over there. We welcome our soldiers with profuse thanks, and hope their skills and talents will be used again to exterminate any of the foe who come to or sneak into this country.

  18. Once a terrorist, always a terrorist! Anyone committing terrorism or treason against the state should loose their citizenship! Only a liberal country like Sweden would want all their terrorists back!! This is why tourism is down in Europe; who wants to go where terrorists are hailed as heroes while raping and pillaging the villagers!!

  19. NO! She wanted to be with the ISIS so let her stay out of our country. She is a traitor and if we let her back in the USA she will still be a traitor and without a doubt she will just be another Democrat.

  20. NO! AND HELL NO THEY ARE TRAIND KILLERS NOW AND THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN WILL BE JUST THAT MANY MORE THAT INFEST THE WELFARE ROLLS AND OUR NATION.

  21. No! If they are members of any terrorist group they should never be allowed back into our Country. If they do return they should be charged with treason and executed.

  22. No the isis fighters should not be allowed to return. They made the choice to go be an isis member so why would /should the U.S. accept them back now that they could be trained as terrorists.

  23. Those who left the US to partake in the cause of ISIS made a choice to leave the safety of this nation. It was their choice and should have to live with the aftermath. It is like “Closing the barn door after the livestock was let out.” Think of the “Gold Families who lost members in the aftermath and with M16 members who have invaded our borders only to slay US Citizens. Wakej UP America.

  24. Hell no, once someone leaves their native country and fights for a terrorist group, they should never be allowed back. If they were not brainwashed before they left, they most certainly are once they are “done” fighting their battles. If they are permitted back, they could be called again to set off any and all terror act in the country they go back to. There have been way to many of this happening and we must all learn from our mistakes so that it does not get repeated again and again. Enough is enough, let them all stay where they are as they all lost their citizenship from their “native land” and became a citizen of the country that they fought for.

  25. ISIS fighters SHOULD NOT be allowed to return to the USA. They should be stripped of their citizenship and all privileges granted them by the United States of America

  26. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ANY ONE WHO IS ANTI AMERICAN SHOULD NOT EVEN BE IN THIS COUNTRY LET ALONE COME BACK

  27. Unfortunately we do not have the death penalty so they would not be hung by the neck until dead. They, if we are “lucky” enough to keep them from society, would only get jail time which then we, the taxpayers would have to support them while they are in jail. That is free food, medical, housing and anything else they can get while in jail. I would much rather save my tax dollar on something more important than supporting these terrorist and just let them stay in the country of their terrorists brothers (until they are killed over there by one of our good guys).

  28. If they’re citizens of this country they should be brought back, charged with treason, tried, found guilty and EXICUTED. That’s what they do during time of war and we’re in a war.

  29. ABSOLUTELY NOT, OUR REPUBLIC HAS IT HANDS FULL OF TRYING TO KEEP TRACK OF ILLEGAL ALIENS. AND THERE ARE TERRORISTS HERE TOO, ANYONE WHO DOES NOT WANT TO CONFORM TO THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE,, LEAVE AND GO TO THE PLACES OF YOUR CHOICE.. BUT ANYONE WHO WILL NOT PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE USA. DOES NOT BELONG HERE, COME LEGALLY, LEARN ENGLISH, FOLLOW THE LAWS AND WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.. ANYONE WHO HAS WORKED AT ASSISTING WITH THE DEATH OF AMERICANS IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, DO NOT RETURN.

  30. Only allow them to return, if each one of them would be killed, as soon as they return, male and female young or old, they where and still are the enemy.

  31. No, they forfeited their citizenship when they chose to fight our ENEMY. They made that decision, now they pay the consequence. If someone left to fight with the Nazi’s in WWII, would you want them back. Absolutely NOT!!!.

  32. Who cares what Sweden does, we should not allow anyone that joined ISIS to come to the US man or woman.

  33. No you left on your own. Made your bed lay in it and sealed your fate and your children’s live with it

  34. No way! Those TRAITORS should never be allowed to come back!! Anyone who betrays their country and countrymen should be SHOT, especially the ones who join up with the cowardly demon-possessed Muslimes of Isis and the other terror groups that they form to kill innocent people in their agenda to take over the world!!

  35. The Swedish Government has LOST their collective MIND! YOU used to be someplace that I admired- NOT anymore. WHY don’t YOU go out & see IF you can find some arsonists, murderers, pedophiles, rapists, etc that YOU can “recruit” to be Swedish Citizens?

  36. No one would ever hang them! Our country evidently would rather murder infants than murderers and people who have committed treason!

  37. Tess I absolutely agree do not let them back I . Stay over in your chosen land!
