The Nordic Resistance Movement (NRM) has started actively looking for recruits in Iceland, and their leader is not disclosing who they may be.

RÚV has reported that many Icelanders woke up on Saturday morning to discover flyers delivered to their homes from the NRM, a violent white power movement originating in Sweden, actively looking for Icelandic recruits.

While Icelandic political scientist Eiríkur Bergmann dismissed the news, saying that a group this radical has very little chance of gaining much ground in Iceland, NRM spokesperson Pär Öberg told RÚV their group has a particular interest in Iceland.

Pär contends that numerous Icelanders had contacted them, expressing an interest in forming a branch in this country. He added that he considers it a “natural progression” that the NRM, which seeks to form a pan-Nordic state, would eventually reach Icelandic shores. At the same time, he would not disclose how many Icelanders had joined nor who they are, and said that these Icelanders are not willing to talk to the press.

The NRM has been responsible for numerous acts of violence across Scandinavia, engaging in assaults and stabbings against their opponents, whether people of color, members of the queer community, or asylum seekers. No Icelanders at the time of this writing have yet come forward declaring their allegiance to the NRM.
