There is a widespread IS online propaganda originating from Sweden, says Linus Gustafsson, who is a researcher at the Defense Academy, to TV4 in Sweden.
The purpose is to recruit jihadis to join the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq.
According to Europol, around 50,000 Twitter accounts belonging to supporters of the Islamic State are spewing out at least 100,000 messages per day, urging Muslims to join ISIS to participate in Jihad.
Now Europol has decided to establish a task force to combat the online IS propaganda, but despite that a large number of accounts belonging to Muslims in Sweden, Sweden will not participate in the group of European police, cooperating to stop online recruiting to the terror group IS. And despite the fact that IS has a strong presence on social media in Sweden, at least 300 Muslims have already left Sweden to fight with IS in Iraq or Syria. Many are also returning, fully trained for combat.
Sweden will not participate in Europol's task force, and it is due to the Swedish legislation, states the Interior and Migration Minister Anders Ygeman (S) in an interview.
But changing the laws is usually not a problem, nor constitutions. But only when it is about Swedes, not Muslims, as in this case.
