Norway Government Collapses Over ISIS Bride Repatriation

Norway Government Collapses Over ISIS Bride Repatriation

Right-wing Progress Party: “We do not compromise with people who have voluntarily joined terrorist organizations.”

Norway’s ruling coalition collapsed on Monday over the repatriation of a suspected female Islamic State fighter from Syria.

The right-wing Norwegian Progress Party ended a seven-year alliance with Prime Minister Erna Solberg’s Conservative Party after she agreed to take in a suspected female jihadi and her two children on “humanitarian” grounds.

The unnamed 29-year-old woman of Pakistani origin had reportedly left Norway to join the ISIS Caliphate in 2013. The children were born after she departed to join the terrorist group in Syria, reports say.

“We could welcome the children, but we do not compromise with people who have voluntarily joined terrorist organizations and who are working to tear down all the values Norway is built on,” Siv Jensen, leader of the Progress Party, told reporters.

Since the Norwegian constitution does not allow for an early election, Prime Minister Solberg will continue to lead a minority government until the next year’s general election. With the right-wing Progress Party mobilizing openly against the government, the country could plunge into a political crisis.

German state broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported the break up of Norway’s governing coalition:

Norway’s right-wing Progress Party pulled out of the governing coalition on Monday after the government chose to repatriate a woman charged with supporting terrorist groups while she was in Syria.

Finance Minister Siv Jensen announced the move at a press conference, saying that it had become too difficult to get enough of her populist party’s policies through government.

“I brought us into government, and I’m now taking the party out,” Jensen told a news conference.

The move means that Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg no longer has a parliamentary majority.

Shortly after the announcement, Solberg said she intends to stay in office as the head of a minority government, although the situation is likely to make it more difficult for her to govern.

Norway’s constitution does not allow for early elections, with the next parliamentary vote due to take place in September 2021.

Last week, Norway’s Cabinet decided to allow the woman to return to Norway with her two children so that her 5-year-old son could receive medical treatment. The three had been living in the Kurdish-controlled al-Hol refugee camp in Syria. (…) The Progress Party offered to help the woman’s children, but sought to block the government from providing assistance to adults seeking to return to Norway after marrying foreign fighters or joining Islamist groups abroad.

The Kurdish and allied forces detained an estimated 12,300 foreigners linked to ISIS after the Islamic Caliphate collapsed in 2018, UK newspaper The Guardian reported recently. The number includes more than 8,700 children holding 40 nationalities.

Last week, UN officials called for the repatriation these children to their respective countries, and slammed the plans by some countries to allow minors to return without their mothers, many of whom committed war crimes on behalf of ISIS, claiming it ran counter to the principle of the “best interests of the child.”

While the European media and the governments continue to harp on the humanitarian need to repatriate the female ISIS fighters and children, they pose a considerable security threat to the recipient countries. An intelligence assessment issued by Germany’s domestic spy agency (BfV) suggested this week that female jihadis “leaving the country, returning back, and remaining in Germany are increasingly supporting violence and are ready to carry it out.” These women are taking up leadership positions the Islamist networks in Germany and raising the next generation of jihadis that are “radicalized from a young age,” the intelligence service warned.

The returning ISIS children, too, pose a grave threat. As the outgoing German intelligence chief, Hans-Georg Maassen, warned in 2017: “There are children who have been brainwashed and highly radicalized at ‘schools’ in IS-held areas. (….) It’s a problem for us because many of these kids and teenagers can sometimes be dangerous.”

Besides Norway, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France are also struggling to deal with thousands of returning battle-hardened ISIS jihadis and their radicalized families. The problem is compounded with tens of thousands of Muslim immigrants joining the ranks of jihadis in each of these countries. In Germany and France, the number of radicalized Muslims committed to jihad has crossed 12,000 and 17,000, respectively. The problem is even more acute in the UK, where that figure is thought to be around 35,000, according to EU counter-terrorism estimates.

Good to see somebody saying “no” to this insanity. There is nothing “humanitarian” about welcoming dangerous vipers into your country.

    Except that the Conservative Party leader let this woman in… understand that Norway is a leftward country, and their center is left of ours.
    I agree with the “center right” party that separated from the minister.
    This is only part of the danger of all this insane open border policy crap the EU and so many countries are pushing. It makes zero sense.

    ” many of these kids and teenagers can sometimes be dangerous.”

    I suspect most are dangerous. Very young children might be salvageable, older ones are going to be more or less like rabid anaimals.

    It is good to see that there were still some smart Norwegians left behind by my ancestors when they departed about 170 years ago.

This is why you kill your enemy unless you have broken their will to resist. Von Clausewitz rules, screw Sun Tzu!!!!!!!

No one in a ruling position has said “no” to this insanity. This article only states that a right-wing or conservative group has withdrawn from the ruling coalition because the leader of said coalition agreed to bring them in.

So far it seems to be “yes” all around Europe.

As a citizen of Canada, whose insane government has allowed dozens of ISIS terrorists (wrongly described as fighters) to return to Canada, I applaud the Norwegians while mirthfully noting that the Progress Party is conservative and the Conservative Party is progressive.

But it’s “for the children “…. There are plenty of places to obtain medical care. After fighting for ISIS, time to recuperate with infidel provided benefits .

Look at this problem from a simpler position. Let’s say that this woman went to the US and became a seamstress then she wanted to return to Norway. What Norway would get is a repatriated seamstress. Now, look at what this woman has done in the real world. She became a rabid islamic terrorist and learned all the tricks of the trade of killing, raping, burning alive, beheading, brutalizing nonbelievers. Norway will get a re-patriated terrorist if she comes home. Is there really a need for terrorists in Norway?

The unnamed 29-year-old woman of Pakistani origin
This is what sticks out to me. Does this mean she became a citizen? Or is she not even Norwegian? I’m going to guess she was one of the multitudes of “refugees” let into Norway.

If she didn’t actually become a citizen, then Norway shouldn’t even be worrying about her. Let Pakistan take her and her kids in.

If she did become a citizen, then it seems likely to be under false pretenses.

We could welcome the children

They’re all morons.

How can these people bring themselves to disrespect the memory of Vidkun Quisling any longer? This groveling surrender by degrees to aliens seems worse than inviting Nazis in.

the West has gone insane.

Norway isn’t an “official” member of the EU, but clearly they suffer from the Stockholm syndrome, and act like the EU.

Norway and the E.U.’s real and serious problems are just starting.

These children’s best interest — their only hope — is to be separated from their mothers and brought up in orphanages that will brainwash them in western values.

But even if that weren’t in the children’s interest it would still be very much in the country’s interest, and surely that should override all considerations.

    “But even if that weren’t in the children’s interest it would still be very much in the country’s interest, and surely that should override all considerations.”
    False premise #1: “if that weren’t in the children’s interest”
    False premise #2: “the country’s interest, and surely that should override all considerations.” I didn’t think you were such a statist.

We could welcome the children

What sort of moron welcomes the children of jihadists into their country? They are certain to be inculcated into normative Islamic culture (aka jihad) by Muslims already in the country, who are themselves a serious security risk.

Fake news racists. You were right until you started slandering the victimized mothers.

Are you telling me that the dirt in Norway or Germany is any less magic than America? Are these women not transformed into natural conservatives the moment they touch Scandinavia? You’d almost think culture mattered.

GOPe wants an endless supply of lie wage workers from the third world and we’ll get it good and hard. Gang members, murderers, rapists, we need all the good future Americans just as Norway needs their native jihadis back.
