Stockholm. Jan 24(CED) — Maybe it is not a bad thing for Paludan to burn Coran again in front of the Turkish Embassy in Stockholm.
Why? Because this way he will successfully make Turkey to veto Sweden’s entrance into NATO with its precious one vote.
Rasmus Paludan burned Coran in several places in Sweden last year. That triggered thousands of muslims demonstration and protest. They also burned police cars and about one hundred police were wounded by the chaotic crowds and protestors. Swedish police must invest massive police force to protect this one person Paludan from being attacked.
This was Paludan’s way of freedom of expression. In Sweden there was another man who was called Lars. Lars also was against muslim by his so called art works. He was protected by Swedish police for a dozen years and finally he got an accident and died in the car accident.
Now Paludan needed a lot of protection too. This was his way of freedom of expression by burning the Coran, a holy book in muslim’s eyes.
Due to this behavior and the action taken last week when a fake Turkish President Erdogen’s corpse was hanged upside down in front of Stockholm City Hall, Turkish government said Turkey will not vote for Sweden to join NATO.
Prime Minister Christersson said this was very serious. But some Swedish think there is no problem with Paludan’s behavior.
So what will happen? It is likely that Turkey will say no to Swedish joining of NATO.
Then it is a good thing because if Sweden and Finland easily joined NATO, the war is likely to expand to other areas outside Ukraine. It will be hard to limit the war just within Ukraine because Finland and Sweden together have a about 1000 kilometers of border lines.
If Sweden and Finland remain neutral, the conflict can possibly be limited within Ukraine.
This is just my own opinion.
