Are blasphemy laws being sneaked into the Swedish justice system?

“Sharia scandal in Sweden: Are blasphemy laws being sneaked into the Swedish justice system?,” translated from “Shariaskandalen i Sverige: Smygs även hädelselagar in i det svenska rättsväsendet?,” by Katerina Janouch, March 5, 2018:

Under the cover of religious freedom, an ever-increasing bondage is sneaking into the country. Applications for the call to prayer, sharia-loving center party members in the judiciary, gender-separated bathing times and child marriages are just a few of the newer features that democratic, secular and equality-enforcing Sweden are forced to tamper with increasingly. Now there is also reason to ask the question whether we are imposing blasphemy laws in the country? The activity group called the Net Hate Examiners seems to focus on chasing and reporting primarily people who criticize or joke about Islam.

These Net Hate Examiners search for “hate & threats” on social media, and they have been prosperous. 600 notifications, of which 77 were prosecuted. I myself have contact with several of these (all elderly) persons called for interrogation and who risk fines or imprisonment if found guilty. One of those who suffered is 71-year-old Denny Abrahamsson, who was reported to have made two Islamic-critical comments (among other things, he called Islam for a “fascist ideology”). Another is a 73-year-old woman who shared a satirical text about Muslims. She had not even written the text herself, but found it on the Internet and published it in a group of 48 members. A third person writes to me that he tried to persuade Facebook to remove Islamic propaganda for the terrorist network ISIS, but was met with disinterest and that this material was not removed despite urgent pressure.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
