Norway security agency: Muslim influx brings problems

9e5033b04bb32f00fa4381cac6be141869d5b7f95c32e7c927ac7ae12b41331a           The head of the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) told a Swedish security conference on Monday that immigration from Muslim countries will lead to societal conflicts and the rise of far-right groups.

PST head Marie Benedicte Bjørnland warned on Monday of the “unfortunate” consequences that come with large numbers of refugees and migrants from Muslim countries.
“A strong increase in immigration, particularly from Muslim countries, can cause other long-term challenges. When a large number of asylum seekers come to a local community, it can have unfortunate consequences,” Bjørnland said at a security conference in the Swedish ski resort town of Sälen.
“One cannot take for granted that new population groups will automatically adapt the norms and rules of the Norwegian society,” she added.
In an interview with broadcaster TV2, Bjørnland said that large numbers of foreigners can lead to violent clashes and the growth of far-right extremist groups.
