PO Hellqvist worked for the Swedish Security Service (Säpo) for over 30 years. He is deeply concerned about the social developments in Sweden, which he believes is heading for parallel judicial societies and new terrorist acts, he says to SVT Agenda. According to Hellqvist, politicians have not dared to take the gloves off against Islamism for fear of being identified as xenophobic.
- I see parallel societies, I see schools with poor resources, I see poverty, I see great unemployment, I see the absence of young women in public spaces, I hear about morality police (Sharia police). I hear and see things that do not really belong in a democracy as we know it, he says in the interview with SVT Agenda.
According to Hellqvist, there is a battle for power between the Swedish authorities and foreign "structures" in the suburbs.
But the democratic Sweden does not seem to win any obvious victories.
PO Hellqvist believes that the Swedish politicians and authorities have not done enough to stop the development of parallel societies and Islamic radicalization, probably because of fear of being called racists.
- No, I do not think so. Perhaps they have ducked on the issue for fear of being mixed up in a word exchange about xenophobia or islamophobia, he says.
Hellqvist says he is more concerned about those radicalized at home in the suburbs than those returning from the Islamic State. This is because they are many more and because Säpo or the police do not control them equally much.
Those who are radicalized in Sweden have easy access to weapons, he says, and it is probably just a matter of time before a new terrorist act occur. In addition, the suburbs have charismatic salafist leaders who influence the population, he explains.
- Absolutely, PO Hellqvist answers on the question of whether Sweden can suffer from a new bloody terrorist attack, and he points out that Sweden has both the environments and the individuals for it.
