Here is a link for an article by rt.com that is entitled, 'Don't like to see little girls in veils? Move out of Sweden: ': Muslim teacher and Muslim politician clash on live tv: https://www.rt.com/news/482468-sweden-schools-headscarf-ban/?fbclid=IwAR1HgQm45yLZmOGk_c2IU5fx8xK8GKGcNem_DunEh-3cnMfcVX141eRGKRA.
I hope you clicked on that link and read that article that was posted in March, 2020. I can share a bit (I copied/pasted):
Two Muslim women with opposing views on a headscarf ban in schools clashed in a fierce TV debate in Sweden. The teacher told the politician that people uncomfortable with the veil should just leave the country.
The heated exchange between Naouel Aissaoui, a school teacher in the Swedish municipality of Skurup, and local politician Loubna Stensaker Goransson was over a ban on veils in public schools, which Goransson and other council officials enacted in December. The decision angered many educators, and Aissaoui is among those leading the pushback.
"Move away if it annoys you," Aissaoui said during a TV debate after her opponent said she disliked seeing little girls wearing the veil. "This is my country, too."
Both women are Muslim and of immigrant background, but have opposing views on what the headscarf represents and whether it has a place in modern Sweden. During the debate, Goransson said people could not expect to "come to a country that is secular and equal and live with medieval values." She sees the controversial piece of clothing as a tool of oppression and sexualization of little girls, and not as a symbol of purity and goodness, as Aissaoui does.
The televised clash over the Skurup controversy was a microcosm of a larger debate over immigration in Sweden. The rapid influx of migrants put a strain on the country's welfare system and a surge in crime as ethnic gangs wedged their way into the shadow economy. There is also a strong sentiment among many Swedes that the newcomers have no intention of integrating culturally and would rather isolate themselves in their own communities than adopt the customs of their hosts.
But talking about the negative side of welcoming droves of asylum seekers is a challenge, since Sweden has long hailed its open-door policy towards refugees as a matter of national pride, which opened a window of opportunity for politicians, who previously remained on the margins.
The Skurup headscarf ban was pushed by the right-wing anti-immigration Sweden Democrats (SD) party, which used to be a political pariah, but saw a rapid surge in popularity over the past several years. The SD has a majority in the municipality council and has found allies in people like Goransson, who is a member of the Moderates, to enact the headscarf ban.
Others became vocal opponents of the ban. Mattias Liedholm, the headmaster of Skurup's largest school, declared the ban illegal and said he would not enforce it. His uncompromising position however was not shared by as many fellow Moderates as he probably hoped, so last week he announced he was leaving the party.
The SD's suggestion to people not happy with the policy is remarkably similar to that of Aissaoui.
"If you find it so important to wear a headscarf, you go to Saudi Arabia or Iran. The police are happy to lend a hand if you forget that headscarf," said Lars Nystrom, a Skurup council member for the SDs.
Some people may feel badly for the Muslims... but, I feel badly for Sweden!
And am glad that God provides.
Thinking about that, made me think about Psalms 144:1, "Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:".
Amen! Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
Even though some people might feel badly for Muslims in Sweden... because of what you read in that article... I do not feel badly.
Why were Muslims moving from their countries?
Why are they wanting to change each country?
Most are doing what their god... wants them to do.
Their god... who is NOT our God... wants them to convert EVERY person in the world... to become Muslim/Islamic... and if people refuse... their god taught them to cut off their heads... meaning... murder them... which has been happening in more areas where Muslims are in control of where they live... like in the Middle East.
So, I am glad that those upset Muslims who were mentioned in that article... won't be able to do everything they want to do...to change and/or convert Sweden... easily.
I pray for Muslims to gain salvation and everlasting life by trusting in/believing upon our Lord,Jesus Christ... because if they do... they will spend eternity with Him... in Heaven.
But, if they don't... then when their life ends here on earth... they will spend eternity in Hell... separated from God... with NO chance of escape.
Please know I continue to pray.
If you also pray... I believe God will bless you.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
