Sweden’s new ‘Arab Party’ is run by an inmate of forensic psychiatric care

Sweden's Arab Party, a party until recently exclusively for ethnic Arabs, does not formally exist in reality.

    In an exclusive, Swedish weekly Nya Tider exposed the hoax, after having been in contact with both the Election Authority and the Swedish Tax Agency. No one has registered such a party designation and there is no organisation with that name.

    The hoax instead appears as a one-man project by Krar Al-Hamede, a person who has previously been sentenced to forensic psychiatric care.

    In mid-August, another attempt at forming a party for immigrants saw the light of day with the announcement of an “Arab Party”. The party leader, also the party founder, Krar Al-Hamede stated that only those who can prove that they have at least one parent of Arab origin at least a couple of generations ago, may belong to the party.

    But after an outcry on social media, it is now said instead that everyone is welcome: “We see that as many as possible seek to work for the party. Nationality is no obstacle. Swedes are warmly welcome to serve on the board and as politicians. The board will be coordinated soon.”

    Although a party does not have to be registered with the Election Authority to stand for election, it is customary for parties to do this to be taken seriously. It is also necessary to protect the party name.

    At the Election Authority, however, no such registration can be found. An administrator responded: “I have been told by a colleague that you have requested all documents concerning the Arab Party. However, there is no case concerning this party with the Election Authority, neither ongoing nor closed. For safety’s sake, I have been in contact with the registrar to ask if anything has been received today, but that has not happened.”

    In order to be able to register their party designation for parliamentary elections, the party must have at least 1 500 signatures and, in addition, it must have created an organisation, usually a non-profit association. This is needed for a party to be able to have a bank account and act as an independent legal entity.

    However, the Arab party has not been registered as a non-profit association with the Swedish Tax Agency, or any other organisation for that matter.

    The Arab party has made a number of startling statements, which has led many to suspect that it is a joke or a provocation. On September 2, for example, the website Projekt sanning reported that party leader Krar Al-Hamede wrote on the party’s Facebook page that on Friday, September 4, he intended to go to central Malmö to, in revenge for last weekend’s Quran burning, and set fire to Danish and Swedish law books. He also promised that the process would be broadcast live.

    Al-Hamede also believes that Denmark as a nation should pay for the costs corresponding to the material destruction that occurred in connection with the Muslim riots after the burning of the Quran on 28 August.

    Nya Tider has previously reported that AP’s founder Krar Al-Hamede in 2009 was sentenced for assault and domestic violence to forensic psychiatric care, but was discharged early. Four years ago, he was sentenced to forensic psychiatric care once again, but has now been released. However, he has continued contact with forensic psychiatric care and is taking medication to stabilize his mental health.

    Ironically, Al-Hamede has stated on the party’s website that anyone who wants to be a member of the party must have no recent criminal record.

    FREEZING IN THEIR HOMES is the new grim reality for many Brits and Northern Europeans. Margaret is 92 years old and has just come in from the winter cold, but no warmth awaits her at home. She fears her own home more than the icy streets. Next to her are four thick blankets, and on the shelf above the fireplace, which she can no longer afford to buy wood for, is a meter showing the daily cost of electricity (inset). It shows £1.03, about 13 SEK. When it reaches £3, about 38 SEK, she is forced to turn off the little heat she has to afford it. Still image: ITW News

    Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold

    Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
