Isis’ European recruits are made by alienation

Sweden’s latest attempts to integrate its migrant population have suffered one or two hiccups after it was learned that staff at its ‘assimilation guide service’were recruiting people into the Islamic State. A partial success, then.

According to a recent BBC report, the Scandinavian country now tops the European jihadi league, although others give Belgium that honour.

Presumably all those Swedes joining the Islamic State have been radicalised by their country’s relentless military aggression; after all we’re always being told British foreign policy is to blame for our extremism problem.
