    Sweden: Collaboration, Then and Now
    Opinion; Posted on: 2007-08-10 11:46:14 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    by Fjordman

    A group of Swedes spied for the Stasi, the secret police of the GDR, Communist East Germany. Some of the spies were journalists.

    Swedish Security Service Säpo has confirmed that it has identified a number of Swedes who informed for the East German secret police, but has refused to make their names public. A book published in June claims that Säpo has a list of 900 Swedes who had contact with the Stasi. Björn Cederberg, author of the book ‘Kamrat Spion: Om Sverige i Stasi Arkiven’ (Comrade Spy: Sweden in the Stasi Archives), told The Local that that the list came to Sweden from the CIA: “In 1993 a list became available containing the names of around 900 Swedes with some connection to the Stasi. The people at the German archives reckon that only around 50 of these actually worked on behalf of the East Germans.” Sweden has long been known as home to a significant core of East German sympathisers. Former Left Party leader Lars Werner had close ties to GDR diplomats, who paid for the drinks for his fortieth birthday party.

    This pattern of collaboration with the enemies of the West and of freedom is, sadly, still alive. The Swedish Social Democratic Party, like many other Labor parties, have decided to cooperate with Muslims and import voters while ignoring the violence caused by these Muslims against the native population.

    According to this post from the website of Broderskapsrörelsen (“The Brotherhood”), an organization of Christian members of the Swedish Social Democratic Party, the party has decided to establish a network for people of other faiths (which largely seems to mean Muslims). “This is a historic decision for the Brotherhood,” says leader Peter Weiderud. “I’m incredibly happy that a unanimous congress now lets the door open for Muslims and others to work together with us in the Brotherhood; this is going to enrich us all and help the [Social Democratic] Party to better influence the Swedish society.”

    For Abdulkader Habib, active within the Muslim Brotherhood, the decision is a historic step which shows that the dividing lines in society do not go between religions, but within religions. “As a Muslim Social Democrat I have more in common with the Christian Social Democrats than I have with those within the Muslim Right,” says Habib. “Faith and politics is intertwined for many Muslims, which is why the decision to create this network is a key to the crucial work for integration that we need to do, and I believe that the Brotherhood is the right organization to do this within.”

    “We shouldn’t disregard the importance of people's [religious] faith,” says deputy leader Cecilia Dalman-Eek. “When we now get the opportunity to open the doors to people with another faith it is obvious that we should contribute with our experience. At the same time, this is both instructive and inspiring for us Christians within the Brotherhood. This is about an exciting growth of new mass movements and is a part of the new Sweden.”

    The Social Democrats are now following the line of reasoning put forward by Jens Orback, former Cabinet Minister for the Social Democrats, who said during a radio debate that: “We must be open and tolerant towards Islam and Muslims because when we become a minority, they will be so towards us.” The Swedish Social Democrats narrowly lost the elections last year, and appear to have decided that the way to regain and maintain power is to import Muslim voters, a strategy followed by several of their sister parties.
