Norway's intel agency warns of Islamist radicals, wants to hire them

In one article, Norway's Aftenposten today reports on a warning from Norway's intelligence and security agency, PST, that the country faces rising Islamic extremism:
Norway's state police agency in charge of national security (Politiets sikkerhets tjeneste, PST) reported Tuesday that Islamic extremism "will represent a considerable challenge" for Norway in coming years, and that it sees "indications of rising radicalism" both inside and outside the country.
And in an adjacent article, they report that PST wants to hire more Muslims:
The man who heads Norway's national security agency PST needs more knowledge of militant Islamic networks. He wants to employ more Muslims and persons with non-Norwegian background to help fight terrorism.
Taken together, it just looks kinda funny.
