Norwegian Immigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug stated that Norwegians have a new reason to relate to Israelis, and confirmed Israel’s right to defend itself.
“We see what is happening in Sweden, in Britain, and in France,” said Norway’s Minister of Immigration and Integration Sylvi Listhaug in an interview to Ynet held in Oslo, “We are experiencing now the fear that you have experienced for decades.”
One of the most popular politicians in Norway and member of the conservative-liberal Progress Party, Listhaug added that the nations of Europe “and their citizens need to understand the situation in Israel better, because of the terror attacks in Israel.”
Norwegian conservative historian Hanne Nabintu Herland called her country “the most anti-Semitic in the West,” but now it seems that the people of Norway are changing their views.
In concern for the preservation of Norwegian culture in the face of a potential flood of immigrants, Herland often calls on her fellow country-men to “take their country back.”
“The Progress party has always been a supporter of Israel’s need to protect themselves [sic] in a region where you are the only democracy,” continued Minister Listhaug, before adding that “this does not mean we support everything you do, but that you have a right to defend your people and your borders because you live in a region that has a lot of problems.”
The conservative minister reduced the number of immigrants arriving to the shores of Norway from 30,000 in 2015 to 1,000 in 2017. Those who come are expected to adapt to the culture and norms of Norwegians: a people who drink alcohol, eat pork, and do not believe in veils.
Speaking to Ynet, Minister Listhaug stated that, in her view, the reason fewer people wish to come to Norway illegally is that Norway – unlike other countries in Europe – sends undocumented migrants back to their countries of origin. JPost
Norwegian Minister of Migration and Integration Sylvi Listhaug said, “I think those who come to Norway need to adapt to our society. Here we eat pork, drink alcohol and show our face. You must abide by the values, laws and regulations that are in Norway when you come here.”
Sylvi Listhaug is a member of the the Progress Party in Norway, it is a conservative party, part of a center-right coalition that was formed in 2013.
Norwegian Muslims have called on the country’s integration minister to step down after she said that immigrants should adapt to a culture of pork, alcohol and no face-veils.
Sylvi Listhaug, a minister appointed by the anti-immigrant Progress Party, caused outrage on Monday when she made an incendiary post on the eve of an national integration conference.
“I think those who come to Norway need to adapt to our society. Here we eat pork, drink alcohol and show our face. You must abide by the values, laws and regulations that are in Norway when you come here,” she wrote in a post that was ‘liked’ by 20,000 people. TheLocalNo
Last March Sylvi Listhaug stated, “Many of those who have carried out terror attacks in Europe are born and raised in France and Belgium. It shows how important it is to succeed with integration and that is again connected to how many come to Norway. Therefore a tight immigration policy is important.”
“We have foreign fighters who have left Norway and [we have] radical environments. We should not stick our heads in the sand and say that everything is good here. But fortunately we are a long way from the conditions we see in some other countries, for example Sweden,” she said. TheLocalNo
The ‘migrants’ entered Norway illegally from safe countries. Part of a major asylum bill in the Norwegian parliament is for the illegal migrant to be jailed 72 hours as their case is processed, “to stop them escaping into the criminal underworld while their cases are processed” and “evading the authorities if they know they will be rejected.” Sounds sensible.
Migrants in Norway with ‘obviously groundless’ asylum claims could be jailed for up to 72 hours to stop them escaping into the criminal underworld while their cases are processed.
The plan is part of a bill proposed today by Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug and aims to stop claimants evading the authorities if they know they will be rejected.
Since 2004 Norway has used a so-called 48-hour procedure where asylum claims of migrants from safe countries are processed within that time.
But this new plan empowers police to arrest and detain migrants with unfounded claims, reports The Local.
Speaking to state broadcaster NRK, Listhaug said: ‘We can see that unfounded asylum seekers disappear while the police are processing their applications. This will prohibit them from running off and eventually getting involved in criminal activity. DailyMail
