When in 1988 the Greens landed at Swedish Parliament for the first time, they were called “the sons of seal”. Since then, their environmentalism has always supported political ideological battles. During the Cold War it was pacifism: “How to talk about ecology without talking about Vietnam?” So they said then. Today it is the turn of migrants and multiculturalism.
Now the Greens, who are part of the ruling coalition in Stockholm, are shaken by the accusation of being infiltrated by Islamic fundamentalists. Last week, the Minister of Housing, Mehmet Kaplan, resigned after the press revealed his ties with the Nationalist Islamists in his country of origin, Turkey (he also compared Israel to the Nazis).
Lars Nicander at the Swedish National Defence College said that “today people close to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist party, have gained a strong position in the Green Party. I see a similarity with the way that Soviet communism was acting during the Cold War, when it tried to infiltrate into various democratic parties”.
Two senior officials of the Greens, Jon Karlfeld and Anders Wallner, stated that “although there are no signs of infiltration, the Green Party will go on and investigate the potential vulnerabilità”.
After Kaplan’s resignation, it was the turn of Yasri Khan, a candidate for a seat in the political leadership of the Greens and a former president of the organization “Muslims for Peace and Justice”, who refused to shake hands with a female journalist, in compliance with the Sharia, Islamic law . The prime minister, Stefan Löfven,, who already has to manage the entry of 250,000 immigrants in a country of 10 million people, had to intervene to condemn intolerance.
According to numerous surveys, 65 percent of Swedes now want the Greens, the most vocal advocates of open borders, to be expelled from the ruling coalition. “In our desire to embrace a pluralistic and multicultural society, we have turned a blind eye on the undemocratic views [they espouse],” said Gulan Avci, a member of the rightist opposition.
