The Housing Minister, an avowed Islamist whose only action thus far after 18 months in the government is to announce that he will “liberate Jerusalem”, has resigned following a series of revelations about his long-term and intimate links with fascist Islamist groups closely allied with Turkey’s dictator Erdogan.
Kaplan also has the dubious distinction of having been deported from the territory of a Swedish ally, Israel, for subversive activities including failing to enter the country legally, a claim to fame that he shares with his Green Party government colleague Gustav Fridolin. They were both deported for illegal activities linked with the illicit Ship to Gaza terrorist campaign a few years ago.
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has signally failed to act in any way whatsoever throughout this growing debacle, waiting for his antagonistic, racist Housing Minister to resign rather than kicking him out of office.
It should be noted that during his tenure at the helm of the housing ministry, during a period that saw more than 200,000 mostly Muslim migrants enter Sweden, many of them illegally and without adequate grounds for asylum, the Housing Minister has failed to build a single apartment for them or for the indigenous Swedish population.
Instead, he has spent all his time – and Swedish taxpayers’ hard-earned tax revenues – jet-setting to Turkey and working for/with the Islamist dictatorship there against the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel – a country that is a staunch ally and major trading partner of Sweden.
The resignation of Islamist government minister Mehmet Kaplan is a good start for the steadily deteriorating democracy that is Sweden.
This action needs to be immediately followed by the resignation of Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström who has made it her ministerial career to antagonise Israel and misuse Swedish tax revenues to buy votes for a Swedish seat on the UN Security Council. She wants this seat for one purpose only: to increase her attacks on Israel.
The reason why Margot Wallström’s removal from office is vital is not so as to pander to Israeli political concerns. She is after all answerable not to Israeli voters but only to Swedish voters who naturally expect her to work on behalf of Swedish interests.
Rather, her immediate removal from her post is specifically needed to facilitate Sweden’s best interests – she has succeeded in the remarkable achievement of antagonising both Arab and Israeli political echelons, and also Russian and European leaders. Incredibly, she has also succeeded in driving a wedge between Sweden and her Scandinavian partners Finland, Denmark and Norway on account of her abysmal track record on migration and failed integration.
In the wake of MP Mehmet Kaplan’s resignation, the Swedish Jewish community is now waiting with baited breath for the predictable allegations of “Jewish media conspiracy” to rear their ugly head.
This despite the fact that, for the first time in modern-day Swedish history, it was actually the media that, remarkably, led the drive to spotlight Kaplan’s anti-democratic affiliations and raised the demand for his resignation.
The fact that for the first time in living memory, the Swedish media actually indulged in investigative journalism, should not be underestimated. It may mark the start of a new Swedish attitude – less kowtowing to the state religion of Political Correctness and more hard-nosed reporting on what actually happens, without the dubious benefits of rose-tinted spectacles financed by rabidly left-wing and anti-Semitic demagogues.
