Finland ready to welcome ISIS jihadists with social benefits and apartments

Providing apartments and cash to ISIS fighters.

Finland believes that it can integrate ISIS jihadists into its neo-liberal, progressive society with social benefits and safe spaces.

Finnish officials are considering providing former ISIS members with extra social services to reintegrate back into society.

The Finnish daily Ilta-Sanomat reports that Finland’s Interior Ministry called for cooperation between the relevant bodies to increase the level of integration by providing apartments and livelihoods to repentant jihadists.

We are confident that the ISIS fighters (soon to be living in Finland) will appreciate the hand out and privileged social status with some ISIS jihadist cultural exchange suicide cars and trucks.

From a moral standpoint, however, it would be problematic to provide Daesh defectors with extras ahead of others, while making ordinary citizens wait for long periods of time to receive state-funded housing, the Finnish newspaper noted. This could be perceived as encouraging terrorist behavior. According to the Interior Ministry, social workers will have to solve this problem in practice.

In its reply to the Interior Ministry, Vantaa City noted that the current welfare system is lacking provisions for special services to people who have returned from military conflicts, which implies a risk that this particular group of people can remain without the necessary social help, unless special assistance is rendered.

“I believe that if reintegration into society is considered one of the best mechanisms against radicalization, then an apartment, work training are of paramount importance,” Anna Cantell-Forsbom, the head of Vantaa family service department, told Ilta-Sanomat, venturing that the sheer danger the returnees pose justifies priority service. “Of course, other support should be provided as well. An apartment alone does not solve anything. Other vital aspects should also be considered,” she added.

Previously, Vantaa provided counseling on social issues and mental health services to several people who returned from combat zones.

Meanwhile, Finland’s Ministry of Social Affairs and Health welcomed the Interior Ministry’s proposal, suggesting that the families of the returnees, especially those who have seen or experienced violence, are in dire need of prompt assistance.

According to Tarja Mankkinen, development director of the Interior Ministry, the foremost thing would be to establish whether the defectors have been involved in crimes. However, she ventured that they could also be eligible for various form of assistance at one stage or another.

All in all, at least 80 people have left Finland to join various terrorist organizations. The number could be much higher, however, as not all identities have been successfully established. Pekka Hiltunen, Finnish Security Police (SUPO) special representative on combating terrorism, previously stated that several “Finnish” jihadists had risen to positions of prominence in Daesh, without disclosing their names.

Earlier this week, Interior Ministry permanent secretary Päivi Nerg said that outcasts from Finnish society constituted the biggest security threat and expressed concern about the spread of radical Islamist propaganda among Finns.

“The propaganda currently aimed at Finnish outcasts and even asylum seekers is terrifyingly effective,” Päivi Nerg said, as quoted by the Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat.

At present, people formerly involved in extremist activities may receive help in renouncing violence from the so-called “exit” organization Radinet project, funded by the RAY slot machine association with the help from Interior Ministry.

ISIS was created over a religious identity not a political one….if they won in Syria do you think they could govern..no way..now some dipstick thinks that by giving them whatever they want is the way to offer repentance…give an inch and they take a mile…so in order to supply a lifestyle to head hunters they will have to borrow more money from you know who….then buy more fire trucks to put the fires out…

While I don’t agree with it, didn’t either The Duran or RT already report on how wise Bashar al-Assad supposedly was for taking this approach (reintegrating, not the social security necessarily) to reintegrate Syrians who joined one of (or was it any of?) ISIS/al-Nusra/FSA/other “rebels” back into the country (and possibly into the pro-government forces).
One aim of this was to encourage rebellion/loss of morale in jihadist ranks.
I swear there was an article like this which painted that decision in a good light.

It is one thing for Bashar to “reintegrate” “rebels” within Syria…and he probably knows who they are…

Quite another for a European country to welcome thousands of “migrants” without even knowing who they are….

That is called Social Suicide…

Bashar’s compassion was clearly explained – he said many local Syrians had joined ISIS/Nusra etc through abject poverty, poor education, fear, protecting their families, no choice etc
He offers them a second chance. And they are Syrian citizens.

No one traveling there from Finland could be that poor, afraid or illiterate. They are thus either thrill-seekers or true believers who made a conscious choice. Perhaps deserving of less compassion on their return?

This has (under some hush hush) been going on here in the land of Political Correctness, Sweden for a while. Terrorists are welcomed back to rehabilitation with life-time social welfare & benefits as well as (changed) protected identities.

Needless to say, it didn’t turn out well. many go back to wherever Uncle Schlomo are calling them but not before a killing and raping spree before they go.

The Germans have a saying: “Die dummen Schweden”, it means exactly what it sounds like but i wonder who’s the worst here really….

Yes. And many, many politicians in Finland have shareholdings and other direct and indirect personal financial relations to private firms providing social services, attorneys, and other taxpayer-paid services for immigrants. For example, minister Petteri Orpo’s wife is a shareholder in a law firm Lakiverstas Oy, specialized in making appeals on dismissed asylum decisions. And several politicians are holding their shares in reception center firm Luona Oy. Despite the fake ratings of Transparency International (an organisation funded by Soros and FINNISH instances) Finnish government is one of the most corrupt ones of Europe, and extremely arrogant on own nationalist-minded people who… Read more »

So Finland believes that it can integrate ISIS jihadists are they mad, these monsters are programed killers, and once that happens no social help will save them, for the crimes they have committed they will go to hell, and it is going to be a very long time, before they make it back to a 3rd dimensional planet their reptilian false god will not save them in fact they have been tricked.

They supposedly were running from al-Qaeda/IS et. al. terrorists in the first place and were granted asylum based on that. Then after they received asylum ran off to join those exact jihad ideologies. Now they come back again? Makes no sense at all. It can’t be explained by “poverty” or “segregation”, only through a personal choice. Only an ultimate idiot expects this ideology to change if it didn’t in the first place, with all these prerequisites for quality of life improved. Just to clarify this article was real news. Sweden already implemented this policy and Finland is always running a… Read more »

Suppose that someone joins a jihadist movement after having swallowed their propaganda, goes down to Syria or Iraq, is disillusioned by what he sees, is not at any point directly involved in war crimes and wants to go back. How should such people be treated? Also suppose that he only has the Finnish citizenship, and cant realistically be turned away.

This is how it works. Disillusioned because ISIS, al-Qaeda etc. ran out of money due to yankee/CIA withdrawing funding, no more money, hookers and hoes, captagon drugs and chopping heads off for fun with no penalty. And it’s no fun in getting their ass kicked. So back off to suck at the friendly tax payer titty in these cuckolded nations, being kept well fed (in storage) until the next jihadist group is created or pops up somewhere else (like Egypt or Afghanistan, or perhaps France). There is always a “home country” regardless whether they threw their passport in the Mediterranean… Read more »

Your question to me seems to be quite trivial and only a tiny fraction of all cases in the grand context of things, but anyway, it’s simple. Such people should be refused access back. What is in that particular jihadist propaganda that could have affected them in the first place? In practice of course it is impossible to verify whether such persons have been involved in atrocities or not, but the basic assumption is they have, until proven otherwise, because that is what the moderate head chopper groups do for living. In practice many terrorists are coming home from Syria… Read more »

Wrong.

And in the very beginning of this article, it says “Finnish officials are CONSIDERING…” So even though the headline was just as frank as every other headline in every commercial media in the world, this article didn’t at any point claim that Finnish government would have yet decided anything on the subject, just reported about some rather reasonably worrying occurences in Finnish political… Read more »

It clearly says in the very beginning that Finnish officials are CONSIDERING this, not that the government has decided anything, and then it reports about knownly true statements from certain named official instances and personnel, what some of them have suggested and how others have taken them. Even though there are less or more officials opposing this, there are still way too high portion of… Read more »

Indeed. The intentionally provocative headline word “ready” was the only thing in this The Duran article which could be considered false, by strict interpretation. But if you read the article itself, you will clearly see it writes CONSIDERING in its very beginning, so it was absolutely not claiming anything being ready after all, even though all HEADLINES in every pay-per-click-advertising-funded media are intentionally provocative, and meant to be interpreted loosely. All the contents in this article itself were completely true, as you can verify from the original article.
