One of the victims of last week’s terror attack in Stockholm, where a failed asylum seeker plowed a truck into a crowd, killing four and injuring at least 15, was a Belgian woman and mother who “was very committed to helping asylum seekers,” according to a translation of a report from the Belgian newspaper La Dernière Heure.
How exactly victim Maïlys Dereymaeker assisted them remained unclear, though it was known that she used to work as a psychologist in several Belgian immigration detention centers, as noted by The U.K. Daily Telegraph, meaning she essentially made a living helping illegal immigrants just like her suspected killer, Rakhmat Akilov.
But according to an additional report from the Belgian paper Het Nieuwsblad, her commitment to “helping asylum seekers” extended beyond her job, in that she was “always seeking meetings” with refugees to help them and “build bridges.”
Dereymaeker was clearly someone who took her job very seriously — and who genuinely believed in the good intentions of asylum seekers.
Unfortunately, this was a belief carried to excess by Swedish lawmakers, who have resisted calls to deport migrants who express support for “violent extremism,” according to Breitbart.
The result has been an inability by Swedish law enforcement to halt the rise of extremism in Sweden, where even teenagers have become vulnerable to being radicalized. And still the nation’s legislators do nothing, save for trying to turn the public’s gaze to what they feel is a superior threat from the so-called “right-wing white power movement.”
These people are blind to the evil that is eating away at their society, ripping apart families and destroying communities.
And unless something changes, 31-year-old mother Dereymaeker will be only one of many more victims to come.
