Norway Center-Right minors out against Progress on immigration

Christian Democrat (KrF) and Liberal (V) politicians censure Christian Tybring-Gjedde on immigration policy statements.



The Progress (FrP) MP for Oslo expressed his concerns towards present immigration laws and continued his support for the ‘stealth Islamization’ term, he said in an interview with Aftenposten this week.

“25 to 30 percent of Oslo’s inhabitants today are of African or Asian origin. Projections from Statistics Norway (SSB) show that a majority will have Asian or African backgrounds by 2050 if immigration policy continues at current levels. This must be allowed to be said out loud,” he stated further. 

The Christian Democratic’s immigration policy spokesperson, Geir Bekkevold, thinks it unfortunate that Mr Tybring-Gjedde MP uses terms like ‘sneak Islamization’ when Progress deputy leader Ketil Solvik-Olsen held a conference for the Norwegian and international Press to clear things up.

Mr Bekkevold believes that Mr Tybring-Gjedde’s statements are reason for why the current talks in Nydalen between the four Parties are necessary.

“This is a topic that they will touch on and talk about. We have to speak seriously to the Progress Party about this [term],” said Mr Bekkevold, Friday.

He believes current statements show “a gulf” in relation to creating a common Christian Democrat-Progress immigration policy.

Progress Party leader Siv Jensen first coined the ‘stealth Islamization’ (‘snikislamisering’) term during a speech in 2009.

Mr Tybring-Gjedde cited two examples as to why he believes neither his Party nor Ms Jensen need apologize for using the expression.

Christian newspaper Vårt Land wrote, Monday, a new White Paper on spiritual politics contains a proposal that Sharia expertize should be integrated into Norway’s state disagreement mediation service ‘konfliktrådet’.

Human Rights Service posted a case about a Norwegian municipality assessing whether to allow swimming lesson exemptions and showering in teachers’ locker rooms for Muslim students.

“’Stealth’ or not, it’s certainly obvious that I completely distance myself from this type of Islamization,” he declared.

He also countered KrF’s comments, and came up with an alternative he thinks make cross-Party talks more comfortable for them.

“I can prove that what I say is true. If they don’t like the ‘stealth Islamisation’ expression, then we can term it "adaptation to Islamic culture based on Sharia law.”

“All the words he uses are thought through. Progress’ problem is that they have a wide variety of politicians”, stated newly-elected Liberal MP Abid Raja to Dagbladet, “they have Kjetil Solvik Olsen on one side and Christian Tybring-Gjedde on another.”
