Martin Strid has quit the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna, SD) after saying that Muslims were “not completely human” during a conference.
Strid, a local politician from the town of Borlänge, told the audience at the party’s national conference in Norrköping that there is a “scale of 1 to 100”.
“On one end of the scale you are 100 percent human, a person, everything that’s part of that concept. At the other end, you are 100 percent Mohammedan,” he said.
Strid continued by saying that “all Muslims are somewhere on that scale” and that members of terror group Isis “are close to being 100 percent Mohammedan”.
