The Swedish government has been forced to shut down an assimilation guide service after discovering that several aides may have been trying to recruit newly arrived immigrants to ISIS.

The assimilation guides, a service provided by the Swedish state job agency, have been accused of taking bribes from migrant job-seekers and making ‘recruitment attempts to militant fighting groups’.

The state job agency, Arbetsformedlingen, has fired the entire network of assimilation guides with immediate effect following the reports.

‘We have received indication that there have been instances of recruitment attempts or contact-making situations related to various militant fighting groups,’ Arbetsformedlingen’s general director Mikael Sjöberg told Expressen.

A spokesman for the state job agency said Saturday that the alleged recruitment drive might be linked to the Islamic State

The ‘immigrant assimilation guides’ were introduced four years ago to aid newly arrived job-seekers and help them integrate into Swedish society by providing a link to their old culture.

The guides have been working for private companies which, in turn, have been hired by the state-run job agency.

Around 32,000 job-seekers currently have a coach assigned under the scheme.

The decision to shut down the program has been made following a noticeable increase in complains from job-seekers, and several indications of criminal activity, including bribes, fraud, blackmail, threats and possible recruitment activity.

‘It’s to do with loans or gifts, like tablets, mobile phones and sometimes cash, in order to get connected to a specific assistant,’ Mr Sjöberg said.

He added that the Minister of State for Employment, Ylva Johansson, and government representatives have been informed.

The Swedish intelligence service, Säpo, has confirmed that they have been contacted by the state job agency, but have yet to launch an investigation.

‘This is not a common way of recruiting for travels that proclaim violence,’ Säpo spokesperson Sirpa Franzén told Svenska Dagbladet.

‘What we have seen in the past is that recruitment takes place in social situations and via social media.’

Just last month, Säpo confirmed that at least one hundred Swedes have travelled to Syria to join the Islamic State.

      A cultural suicide of Sweden.

    • Anna Tree

      Assisted murder guide services. I don’t mind that they do suicide, it’s killing us that I mind (they may first kill Syrians and Iraqis, but the goal eventually is to kill us.)

    “the alleged recruitment drive might be linked to the Islamic State”
    Sweden is done. Just stick a fork in it….

    Sweden is currently being ethnically cleansed of white people due to an insanely high level of Muslim immigration. Sweden’s white European population will be a minority in a few decades. Perhaps at some point Swedish people might begin to dislike the “Islamic paradise” that they created by allowing Muslims to take over their country.

    To make it all more interesting, critiquing Islam in the media (even mild critique) is classified a “hate crime” and punishable by death. Praise Allah, Swedes had better get used to bowing submissively to Mecca. And they should also be prepared to accept that their female grandchildren will probably be hidden under burkhas.

      Well, we all hope for different things. All it takes is for good men to do nothing. You can guarantee, as time goes on, they will do less and less.

        I don’t support violence. However, the courage to stand up and firmly prevent your own race being ethnically cleansed in your own country is necessary. This “war” is best fought with words at this point. White westerners have been thoroughly brainwashed and browbeaten in recent decades that they are evil racists. This meme of “white=racist” and
        “if you are not in favor of diversity, you are racist” must be attacked, taken apart and challenged. And the best way to do this is by approaching the grass roots, the great mass of middle of the road whites who don’t hate anyone but who prefer the company of their own kind. These people can be educated and enlightened and taught that it is totally OK to be proud of your own skin and your own heritage, and NOTHING about that is racist.

      Sweden Democrat Party politician Michael Hess of Karlskrona was sentenced today (May 8, 2014) to a fine for hate speech after having connected the religion of Islam with rape.
      According to the judgment, the statement is not part of a “factual and authoritative discussion” and it thus it does not matter whether or not the statement is true.

      A Muslim rape epidemic in Sweden has ensured that it now tops the list as the European country with the most rapes per capita — 46 incidents per 100,000 residents.
      According to the report, the Swedish rape rate “cannot be explained purely by an increased tendency to report rapes and other more minor sexual offences.”

      Over 5,000 rapes are reported in Sweden per annum while reports in other countries of a comparable size amounted to only a few hundred.

      The Muslim link to the rape epidemic was already evident several years ago. In July 2005, a study from the Swedish Crime Prevention Council, Brå, revealed that rapists in that country were four times more likely to be foreign born.
      Men from North Africa and Iraq are involved in rapes 23 and 20 times more often than Swedes.

      —> And what did they do? They imported even more!

      “We must be open and tolerant towards Islam and the Muslims because when
      we will become the minority they will be so towards us.” Jens Orback, minister in the Swedish government and member of the ruling Social Democratic Party, November 2004 on the Swedish radio channel P1

        Reply”We must be open and tolerant towards Islam and the Muslims because when
        we will become the minority they will be so towards us.”
        Quotes like that make my stomach turn. Muslims have proven, over and over, that they are extremely intolerant.

        And what mass mental illness is behind the determination of Sweden to turn itself into a Muslim country?
        It is utter madness – do the ethnic Swedes have no self respect? What in Gods name has happened to their self preservation instinct?

    Barbara Lerner Spectre is committing progressive genocide against the Swedes. She should be trialed and jailed in a cell with Somali rapist for cultural enrichment purposes, of course, of course.

  • JohnEngelman

    It is foolish for an affluent country to allow the immigration of people who do not have jobs waiting for them.

    • InAFreeCountry

      It is foolish for a country with 12.6% unemployment (the REAL number) to allow any immigration besides family of citizens.

    • WR_the_realist

      Yet every Western country does this.

  • Light from the East

    Social democracy vs Islam. You can’t have both.

  • Hammerheart

    Sweden is the deserving recipent for Darwin Award of the millenium. A true tragedy too. Gorgeous countryside. Gorgeous women. Too bad the men are eunuchs who orchestrate their own genocide.

    • Magician

      Gorgeous countryside. Extremely advanced infrastructure. Free college education.
      But no I do not agree that their women are gorgeous. No, Swedish women do not look even close to what we commonly imagine in our heads.

        They are MUCH better looking than what they are being replaced with.
