Are Muslims included in the Sweden Home Guard Drills?

I’ve got to admit I had absolutely noth­ing today, until I saw this post at Instapun­dit after mass.

READI­NESS: The ENTIRE Swedish Home Guard Was Just Mobilized.

A few weeks back, the gov­ern­ment of Swe­den sent out a book­let to every house­hold in the coun­try urg­ing cit­i­zens to pre­pare for war or other crises. A few months back, they told cit­i­zens that they should be pre­pared to last for at least a week with­out any help from the gov­ern­ment. Last night, in the most unset­tling move yet, they mobi­lized the entire Swedish Home Guard for an “unan­nounced pre­pared­ness exer­cise.” All 40 bat­tal­ions have been acti­vated, effec­tive immediately.

Stephen’s point about never hav­ing to mobi­lize about the US is well made but a dif­fer­ent thing came to mind when I read this.

What about “Swedish” Muslims?

Are the mus­lim cit­i­zens includ­ing in this call up? Are mus­lim immi­grants who have been granted asy­lum included or are they con­sid­ered “no go” as well?

If they aren’t included I’d be in the offi­cial expla­na­tion as to why, and more inter­est­ingly if they OBJECT to not being included. If they are I’d be inter­ested in how they assim­i­late in the home guard sit­u­a­tions or are they orga­nized in seg­re­gated bat­tal­ions à la the 10th Cav­alry dur­ing the Indian wars and is such a move at the government’s request or theirs?

I don’t have time to research any of this right now but I think these are excel­lent ques­tions and in clos­ing here is one more ques­tion to make you go hmmm:

If mus­lims in Swe­den are not included in this drill to what degree might this drill be not solely directed at deter­ring poten­tial Russ­ian aggression.

READINESS: The ENTIRE Swedish Home Guard Was Just Mobilized.

A few weeks back, the government of Sweden sent out a booklet to every household in the country urging citizens to prepare for war or other crises. A few months back, they told citizens that they should be prepared to last for at least a week without any help from the government. Last night, in the most unsettling move yet, they mobilized the entire Swedish Home Guard for an “unannounced preparedness exercise.” All 40 battalions have been activated, effective immediately.

Stephen’s point about never having to mobilize about the US is well made but a different thing came to mind when I read this.

What about “Swedish” Muslims?

Are the muslim citizens including in this call up?  Are muslim immigrants who have been granted asylum included or are they considered “no go” as well?

If they aren’t included I’d be in the official explanation as to why, and more interestingly if they OBJECT to not being included.  If they are I’d be interested in how they assimilate in the home guard situations or are they organized in segregated battalions a la the 10th Cavalry during the Indian wars and is such a move at the government’s request or theirs?

I don’t have time to research any of this right now but I think these are excellent questions and in closing here is one more question to make you go hmmm: 

If muslims in Sweden are not included in this drill to what degree might this drill be not solely directed at deterring potential Russian aggression.
