Among other things he has indicated his preference for instituting shari’a in Finland, and declared that his party’s position is that Muslim children should be excused from music classes and mixed-sex swimming pools. So you can’t say you don’t know where he and his party stand on the important issues.
And now some new information about Mr. Tammi’s past has surfaced. It seems his pilgrimage to Islam has been quite a political odyssey. According to Tundra Tabloids:
Oh my how the circle completes itself. You just can’t make this up if you tried. Founder and spokesman for the Finnish Islamic Party, (FIP) Abdullah Tammi, is not only a former Social Democrat, he’s also a former Communist… and Nazi.- - - - - - - - -
According to a Tundra Tabloid source, during the 60’s, Tammi was one of the more radicalized followers of Pekka Siitoin, a one time leader of Finland’s National Socialist Party (KDP), a fascist party that was never officially registered.
According to the TT’s source: “he (Tammi) became convert fundamentalist Christian in 70’s. He also made his journey through Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormon Church, before found the ‘Truth’.
“However, to excuse all this (at least in his own pov), he recently claimed that he was not really all that loony, but infiltrated those movements and churches because he was a Soviet spy. Sounds like he’s mentally sane and stable doesn’t it?”
A Soviet spy! Well, that reassures me. If I were a Finn, I’d be ready to hand the reins of government over to him. Wouldn’t you?
Communist… Nazi… Muslim… Hmm…
What do all those venerable political disciplines have in common?
Let’s put it this way: don’t expect the next stop in Mr. Tammi’s political odyssey to be the ADL.
