Sweden Gives Returning ISIS Fighters New Identities To Help Them ‘Start Over’

Hundreds of Swedish residents who went to fight for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have now returned to Europe and the Swedish government has given several of them “protected identities” to keep locals from finding out who they are.

The vast majority of the returning jihadist fighters keep a very low profile once they get back to Sweden as many have committed terrorist offences while in the Middle East. 27-year-old Walad Ali Yousef is one returnee that the government has given a special status protecting his identity, normally given to people under serious threat Expressen reports.

Mr Yousef, originally from the heavily migrant-populated city of Malmo, spoke to the newspaper complaining he had difficulty finding a job. “I am looking for many jobs but can not get one because my pictures are out there,” he said.

Yousef joined the Islamic State in 2014, travelling to the ISIS capital of Raqqa in Syria. Formerly a small time criminal, Yousef sent pictures of himself in Syria posing with Kalashnikov rifles to encourage his friends in Sweden to join the terror group.

39-year-old Bherlin Dequilla Gildo, also from Malmo, is now back in Sweden living under an entirely new identity. In 2012 he posted images of himself posing with dead bodies, who he claimed were “Assad’s dogs” and participated directly in killings of Syrian regime soldiers.

It is assumed that the remaining 100 or so Swedes still in the Middle East fighting for the Islamic state are the most radical. Some fear that as Kurdish troops push further into Raqqa, the Swedes will attempt to return home.

Terror expert Magnus Ranstorp said, “the really dangerous ones have not come back yet,” and added, “The vast majority may not do anything, but they are still a danger to the authorities and it must be managed. It is important for the police to be able to prioritise this area so that they do not become dangerous for society.”

While several of those returning are free, many others like Sultan Al-Amin, 31, and Hassan Al-Mandlawi, 33, have been sentenced to life in prison for their crimes committed in the city of Aleppo.

Swedish authorities have been heavily criticised for welcoming Islamic State fighters returning from the Middle East and claiming to be able to integrate them back into Swedish society.

Others have slammed the government for the fact that many fighters have been collecting state money even after they have left to go to the Middle East. One man, a former “Islamophobia expert” was able to collect thousands from the Swedish government while living in Raqqa.

    So now Isis members can return back to Sweden and get a clean sheet new ID and a job …maybe some virgins as a compensation?
    Did they commit a minor crime???? Being part of Isis is a major crime …but not in Sweden, hypocrisy at high levels.
    I wonder if their government will not organize a welcome party ( alcohol forbidden) celebrating their re-integration in the European society.

    I can confirm this is muted in the main stream news but discussed in the political corridors in Stockholm, Sweden. We presently have a few thousand citizens enjoying so called protected identities. Most of them are former criminal informants and similar personas. This also applies to some politicians whom are exempt from public phone records and similar publications.

    Hi, yes they get a clean sheet and no criminal history! This is so crazy, people who has raped an molested during was is now completely clean and can travel also to other countries with a clean sheet. Even more we have ca 400000 immigrants with no papers who already got their clean sheet, over 150000 you people all boys has also come. they are between 16 and 25. The rate of serous rapes on adult women has increased 20 times. Thees immigrans then claim that they are below 18 and thus cannot be punshed as they are classified as children. A number of young swedish women has committed suicide som months after a serious rapr of gang rape. the offender gets away with 2 months prison by stating in that he is below 18 something that is not know. The problem is that an immigran lying about his age has the same credibility as the victim who has lived in sweden her whole life without any criminal offenses. This is a catastrophe for a country which prides itself by have equality between mena and women. The victims can meet the offenders out in the street as usual and ar e then harassed by their immigrant friend. The vomen have nowwhere to go and after some time kill themselves. Swish laws are not prepared for this types of crimes and politicians dont wnat to admit that their has created a disaster. I now drive my teenage daughters if they intend to go more than 300 meters in the afternoon/evening. Two years ago they could walk on their own, but not any more.

    There is no money to recruit more policeinspectors as all money are going to daily allowances for unemplyed immigrants.

    We now also have 20 muslims in Sweden whereof one fouth of those is silently supporting IS. Politicians are now paralyzed and are trying to prove that the situation is not that bad after all. The result is that people has lost trust in them. Noone could have anticipaed this extreme situation in a clam coultry as Sweden which hasn’t had a war since 150 years.

    So Sweden is giving agents of islam – the most barbaric, savage murder cult in recorded history – full pardons, free rides, new identities, places to live and funding?

    Let’s face it, fellow citizens of the western world… the savages of islam have already won. We will all be saying allah akbar within the next 10 years under threat of being beheaded while our daughters are sexually assaulted by savages daily.

    We must stop these savage monsters, not welcome them home with open arms.

    It seems the Swedes have gone mad! Sweden used to be a model country for the rest of the world. It used to be a safe place for family life , women and children. Today the decisions of an incompetent few have socially deconstructed an entire nation and destroyed years of progress making conditions ripe for insurrection based on race/ethnicity etc. It is statistically improbable based on the high levels of intelligent people that this phenomenon is not by chance but well planned. Is Sweden now a threat to peace in the European Union? Its actions of suppressing statistics and the press aimed mainly at securing the ‘safety’ of terrorists, rapists, and murderers seems treasonous to onlookers in the rest of the world. So the question is, “What are the Swedes doing about it?”
    This situation brings grief to many. It has been my childhood dream to live in Sweden. Now that I have left the hot climate of the tropics and been married to a Swede for a few years now the current state of affairs has caused me to abandon that dream and give serious consideration to Norway, Finland or Denmark instead.

    For the sake of the Swedes, I do truly hope you get your act together and preserve whats left of your culture and your society which has inspired many in the past. I am so sorry for Sweden.
