15 of these individuals were ordered to return the money, eight are still being investigated and five cases have been dropped. Whilst the Danish Minister of Justice says that “It is incredibly important that we are not naïve” the Swedish equivalent has clearly proven that he is just that.

How much money is being doled out to terrorists?
The Scandinavian countries have the world’s most generous unemployment insurance systems and in Denmark you are able to receive up to $134 per day for two years although most receive more modest benefits.
How many Danes are in Syria killing for ISIS?
In Denmark there are +100 according to the Danish Intelligence Service but this number is from June and Naser Khader; Danish commentator on Middle Eastern affairs; states that the numbers ought to be revised up. The Local claims that Denmark has the second largest number of foreign fighters in Syria relative to its size after Belgium.
What is the situation like for Sweden?
There are up to 300 Swedes fighting for ISIS according to the Swedish Security Service. This makes the Locals claim regarding Denmark being second questionable. We have twice their population but three times as many jihadists in Syria.
Why are Denmark and Sweden leading the European rankings in jihadists/capita?
The short answer is that the welfare states in the North have embraced the Marxist doctrine of multiculturalism and have opened their borders to immigration from the Middle East. Opening borders to MENA migrants isn’t necessarily problematic per se but it can be taken too far. Denmark has started to realize that a responsible immigration policy is the way to go hence they place demands on people arriving to Denmark and root out those lying or deceiving the country’s taxpayers.
Sweden has gone in the opposite direction with uncontrolled immigration from MENA, extreme multiculturalism, free healthcare for illegal immigrants and much, much more. Our journalists, to an overwhelming degree, vote for an extremist party that wants to open our borders completely and the news reporting has proven to be biased time and time again. There have been no reports of terrorists on welfare in blonde and blue-eyed Sweden.
Considering the naïvety of our current government it would actually surprise me if investigations regarding terrorists on welfare actually occur or are even allowed. That would be bad press for the government, and who wants that? The chart from New Statesman shows that Sweden is taking in more asylum seekers/capita from MENA than the UK, Germany and France combined. As always, Sweden is the extreme outlier and will embrace “allas lika värde“ until the bitter end.
