Swedish City to Offer Returning Jihadis Free Housing, Driving Lessons, and Debt Forgiveness
Several municipalities in Sweden are making plans for how they plan to “re-integrate” returning jihadis as Iraqi and Kurdish soldiers launch an offensive on Islamic State’s terrorist stronghold, Mosul.
The conclusion of authorities in the medieval city of Lund, which has dealt with returning fighters before, is that defectors from the Salafist supremacist terror group should be handled in the same way as those who leave the organised crime scene.
Practical support in such a situation entails the state first evaluating the needs of returning jihadis, before helping them with housing, employment, and day-to-day welfare as it rules necessary.
Municipal coordinator against extremism Anna Sjöstrand said: “There may be criticism, but [I think] that you should get the same help as others who seek help from us. We cannot say that because you made a wrong choice, you have no right to come back and live in our society,” Sjöstrand told Sveriges Radio.
Sjöstrand and the city are backing a report from the National Coordination Against Violent Extremism which advises on how terrorists can be “reintegrated” into Swedish society with the help of state funding. (continued below)

Islamic fighters flee Mosul disguised as women. What a proud courageous people. USA and EU definitely need more.
