Of course there was the IDF blood libel run in a Swedish paper that claimed Israeli soldiers were kidnapping Arabs and selling their organs. It turned out to be a complete fiction...duh...but the Swedish government didn't seem to think it necessary to repudiate the story as that would infringe on a libelous reporter's freedom of speech. It seems that members of the Swedish government spent one too many nights sleeping in that ice hotel they build every winter, and their little nordic brains have frozen.
So what's the latest manifestation of Jew Hate? It seems that Jews are fleeing the town of Malmo in the wake of increasing violence against them there. Jew Hate crimes doubled last year over 2008, and there have been increasing incidents of graffiti, desecration of sacred places including cemeteries.
There is a growing Muslim population in the town of course, because if there's one thing the Middle Eastern adherents of Islam love it's snow. But Jews from the town are of the mind that it is Swedish politicians on the city council that are responsible for fostering an atmosphere in which Jew Hate is tolerated.
Fredrik Sieradzki, a member of Malmo's Jewish community, believes that politicians like Social Democrat chair Ilmar Reepalu are very much part of the problem. Arutz-7 quotes Sieradzki as saying
“He’s demonstrated extreme ignorance when it comes to our problems. It’s shameful and regrettable that such a powerful politician could be so ignorant about the threats we face.
“If you read between the lines, he seems to be suggesting that the violence directed toward us is our own fault simply because we didn’t speak out against Israel. We’re a non-political, cultural and religious organization, and there are all kinds of Jews in Malmö.”
Don't worry Fredrik, you're not alone. Leftist Jew haters, including plenty right here in the good ol' USofA, have marched in the streets demanding the destruction of the Jewish state, and the globalization of the intifada.
But if all of Sweden's Jews come to their senses and make aliyah to Israel, what will the Swedes do for fun, go back to committing suicide and watching porn? They really need to have Jews around to hate. I suggest that Israel create an exchange program where the 700 or so Jews of Malmo move to Israel and 700 Leftist Israeli politicians, including Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak, go to Sweden so they will have Jews in Malmo to hate. Then those idiots may finally realize that acting like Europeans, looking like Europeans, and pretending to be Europeans does not keep them from hating us. No, it probably won't work, but it's worth a shot.
