MP raps Sweden's Democrats leader for anti-Islam remarks

Fri Jan 9, 2015 3:39PM

A Swedish member of parliament has reported a far-right leader to the police for making remarks which incite anti-Islam hatred following a recent terrorist attack on the office of a satirical French weekly in Paris.

In a Facebook comment about Wednesday’s Charlie Hebdo massacre, the party secretary of the Sweden Democrats, Bjoern Soeder, wrote "The religion of peace shows its face."

“He has linked practicing Muslims to a terrorist act, it's extremely offensive," Swedish Social Democrat lawmaker, Veronica Palm, said, adding that Soeder’s statement was “offensive to a group of people and I want to see if it comes under laws against inciting racial hatred."
In a statement, the Sweden Democrats have denounced the Paris massacre, saying it was "an attack on all of Europe and on the values of democracy and freedom of speech."

Masked gunmen stormed the Paris headquarters of the satirical weekly, Charlie Hebdo, on Wednesday, gunning down a dozen people, including eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor.

A policewoman on Thursday also succumbed to injuries she sustained in a separate shooting in southern Paris.

On Friday, a shootout, followed by a hostage-taking at a kosher grocery shop northeast of Paris, left at least two people dead.

The ISIL Takfiri group has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack in Paris and threatened to target the United States and Britain next.

This is the Swedish hate speech law I mentioned the other day.

European speech laws are worse than China's.
