Sweden’s got the “Stockholm Syndrome”?

Sunday January 31 the right-wing populist party Sverigedemokraterna (SD) hosted a conference in Stockholm entitled “Non-Muslims under Islam”. Helsingborgs dagblad (independent) published a report from the conference. First speaker, out of three, was Christian-Sudanese Kuel Jok, who presented a set of personal pictures from Sudan while talking about Muslim aggressions towards Christians in the country. ”God is great” is the slogan of the oppression, according to Jok, who concluded: “If you say the God that murdered my countrymen and relatives is great, we can’t talk about the same God.”

Kuel Jok was followed by exiled Iranian Farshad Kholghi who claimed that “Sweden is suffering from the Stockholm syndrome” (identifying with it’s kidnappers, e.g. the Muslims) and has developed into a “politically correct dictatorship”. As a word of warning he then continued by telling how his own native country Iran used to offer a life of “passion, pork, and wine, which has been erased by Shari’a laws.”

Last to enter the pulpit was the Danish psychologist and politician Nicolai Sennels (Dansk Folkeparti) who asked for a stricter treatment of [Muslim] immigrants – out of love and concern for their well being. In a colonial manner he compared the relationship between the Danish majority and the immigrant minorites to the that between parents and their children, saying “If our children is misbehaving, we must dare to correct them.”
