Mattias Karlsson, who is in charge of the Sweden Democrats for the foreseeable future after the party’s leader Jimmie Åkesson announced on Tuesday that he was extending his sick leave, described Nazism as “terrible” in an interview with Swedish broadcaster SVT on Tuesday.
But he added that he felt the threat from Islamism today was “perhaps greater than from Nazism”.
The word Islamism broadly refers to the ideology that says a country’s government and society should operate in accordance with Islamic laws.
“One must of course take all ideologies seriously and fight them in every way,” said Karlsson on Tuesday.

Almost 500 cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) were identified by hospitals across the UK in just one month in late 2014.
According to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), fifteen cases were documented daily in the month of November. However, 25% of the HSCIC Trusts did not submit documentation. This suggests that the number of actual cases is much higher.
FGM is not the same as male circumcision. FGM involved the deliberate total or partial removal of the female genitalia for non-medical reasons. The procedure makes urination painful; sexual pleasure impossible; childbirth torturous. It is a barbaric, tribal, and primarily African practice which can also lead to infertility, incontinence, infection, fistulas, and death.
