Here's a minister I like....

Is Sweden finally going to start to tackle its problems?
Sweden's new integration minister dismissed allegations of "Islamophobia" by Muslim groups, and vowed Monday to defend the rights of women who are "oppressed in the name of religion."

Nyamko Sabuni, 37, has irritated Muslim leaders by opposing religious schools and suggesting that all schools ban Islamic headscarves for girls younger than 15.

Nearly 50 Muslim organizations signed a petition opposing her appointment as integration minister, saying her views "breathe of populism and Islamophobia."

"I will not let myself be scared into silence," Sabuni told reporters when asked about the petition. "I will never accept that women and girls are oppressed in the name of religion."

At least it would lower their reputation even further.
