Muslims Hit With Bad News When They Show Up For Their $300,000 Handout

Two Swedish organizations that were expecting government funding are going to be left out in the cold in 2017. The government has rejected the applications submitted by the two groups, which have been branded as incompatible with democracy.

The Sweden Democratic Youth (Sverigedemokratisk ungdom, SDU) and the Young Muslims of Sweden will not be getting the cash grants they expected in 2017, even though both groups had been awarded funding in the past. The Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society (MUCF) has rejected them because the groups ideologies are no longer considered in line with the country’s values.

“We make the assessment that SDU has statements in its political manifestos and Young Muslims of Sweden has elements in its operations which mean that these organizations do not live up to the standard we want an organization to have to get government funding,” said Lotta Persson, the MUCF official who distributes grants.

The SDU is the former youth group under the Sweden Democrat party. In 2015, the group Sweden Democrats announced they would be breaking with the SDU. The Sweden Democrats founded a new youth league and the SDU began operating independently. In 2016, the group was given approximately $140,000 in government grants.

The MUCF focuses on projects that include anti-extremism and anti-racism activities. The SDU has become too right wing for their tastes. The right-wing movement in Sweden has taken a sharp upturn in recent years. Immigration problems have given rise to a vocal group calling for immigration reform and the desire to preserve Swedish culture.

The SDU has also been accused of poorly managing their funding.

The Young Muslims of Sweden were granted $145,000 in 2016, and were given an additional $57,000 in funding for anti-racism projects. The MUCF believes there are members who don’t respect equality or anti-discrimination rules. The organization has also been found to have connections to the Muslim Brotherhood organization, a group accused of attempting to take over public institutions with the intent of implementing an Islamic agenda.

The Young Muslims of Sweden plan to appeal the MUCF’s decision, claiming that the decision to cut their funding was ‘arbitrary.’
