Sweden tells it as it is

Margot Wallström

When Margot Wallström, Sweden’s minister for foreign affairs, was asked: “How worried are you about the radicalization of young people in Sweden who fight for IS?”

Wallström replied:

“Yes, of course we have reason to worry, not just in Sweden, but around the world about the fact that so many are being radicalized. And here, again, you come back to situations like the one in the Middle East where not least the Palestinians feel like there is no future them. They feel like they either have to accept a desperate situation or resort to violence.”

Of course this created a diplomatic crisis with Israel, but who cares. Wallström tells it as it is – the occupation of Palestine is the root cause of world instability today. Several other politicians in the past have been brave enough to say the same thing, only to be whipped into line by someone or other. Because of this nothing changes… yet.
