Sweden’s ‘Damn Jew’ Problem

Wearing a yarmulke is no longer safe in the city of Malmö. The mayor blames the Jews, while other Swedish politicians point to ‘social inequality.’

The store window had been smashed many times before. The shoe-repair shop is located in one of the rougher parts of Malmö, Sweden, and the Jewish owner, a native of the city, had gotten used to this sort of vandalism. But in the spring of 2004, a group of immigrants just under the age of 15—too young to be prosecuted by Swedish law—walked into the store yelling about “damn Jews.” The owner was hit in the face by one of the boys. Yasha, an 85-year-old customer and relative of mine, was struck in the back of his head. The doctor who received him at the emergency room concluded that he must have been hit with a blunt object. “I left Poland to get away from anti-Semitism,” he later told the police. “But at least there I never experienced any violence. That only happened to me here, in Sweden.”

The Jews of Malmö, a community of about 1,500 in a city of 300,000, are living through a new form of anti-Semitism. This kind does not stem from neo-Nazis or right-wing extremists—traditional perpetrators of European Jew-hatred—but has come to the city through immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East and is part of a larger, countrywide problem of failed integration. According to the 2011 census, one in 10 Malmö citizens comes from the Middle East and North Africa, and ethnic Swedes are no longer in the majority among 15-year-olds. In 2009, 60 hate crimes against Jews were reported in Malmö, ranging from hate speech to assault. The city’s Chicago-born Chabad rabbi, Shneur Kesselman, estimates that he alone has been the victim of 100 incidents during his few years in the city. A dozen families have already left Malmö for Stockholm, Israel, or the United States because of anti-Semitism, according to community leaders.

If only this were the whole problem. But Malmö’s mayor of 17 years, Ilmar Reepalu, has “Tourettes syndrome with respect to Jews,” according to Kvällsposten, a Swedish newspaper. Last week, Reepalu, a Social Democrat, made headlines across the country after I published an interview with him in which he said that Sweden Democrats, an anti-immigrant party with its roots in the Swedish neo-Nazi movement, had “infiltrated” Malmö’s Jewish community in order to turn it against Muslims. On Monday, he was publicly reprimanded by the head of his party.

Reeplau has promised that he is no anti-Semite, but this is far from the first time that he has put his foot in his mouth on the subject of Jews. When a journalist from the Malmö daily Skånska Dagbladet asked him in January 2010 about growing anti-Semitism in his city, he replied, “We accept neither anti-Semitism nor Zionism in Malmö.” His reaction to the fact that Jews are leaving his city because of anti-Semitism was to maintain that “there have been no attacks against Jews, and if Jews want to leave for Israel that is not a concern for Malmö.” In an interview with Danish television in March 2010, he described criticism about his statements regarding Jews and Zionism as an attack orchestrated by “the Israeli lobby.” When I met him in February he clarified the latter statement: “I understand that my words were misinterpreted as being somehow anti-Semitic,” he said. “I shouldn’t have called it ‘an Israeli lobby’ but ‘a pro-Israeli lobby.’ ”

During Israel’s 2008-2009 war against Hamas in Gaza, there was a sharp increase in anti-Semitic violence in Malmö—but the mayor didn’t seem concerned. On Dec. 27, 2008, as Israel Defense Forces launched Operation Cast Lead, the Jewish community of Malmö held a demonstration in the city’s main square to express sympathy for “all civilian victims” in Gaza and the Jewish state. They were soon confronted by a much larger counter-demonstration, consisting mainly of immigrants from the Middle East. The Jews were singing hine ma tov, but was their song was overwhelmed by chants of “damn Jews” and “Hitler, Hitler, Hitler!” A glass bottle flew through the air and hit a Jewish girl in the back. When a homemade bomb was fired straight into the Jewish group, the police decided to evacuate them. The Jews fled from the square but were followed by kids who used cellphones to report back to the counter-demonstration with which direction “the Jews” were heading. Among those running were 85-year-old Yasha’s grandchildren, all born and raised in Malmö.

When Reepalu was questioned about these events, he chose to criticize the Jews of his city for not taking a firm stand against the policies of the state of Israel: “Instead they choose to have a demonstration at the main square, which can send the wrong signals,” he said, while referring in passing to Israel’s “genocide” in Gaza.

Two months after the Cast Lead demonstration, I went to Malmö on the occasion of a Davis Cup tennis match between Sweden and Israel. The city made the decision that no audience would be allowed at the match, marking the first time Sweden decided to subject a country to a sports boycott since barring South African athletes from entering the country during apartheid. “Don’t forget,” said Reepalu, “this isn’t a match against just anyone. It’s a match against the state of Israel.” Anarchists, feminists, Islamists, and left-wing extremists from around the country gathered in the city to protest against Israel.

I found out from a friend that the Jewish community was hosting a secret welcome party for the Israeli tennis players. The party had not been publicly announced; the information was spread by word of mouth. My friend hushed me when I told the taxi driver where we were going–this is one of those things that Malmö’s Jews have learned to do–and instead gave him an address near the Jewish Community Center. We had to walk for a few blocks before we turned into an empty street that had been sealed off by cars from the Swedish Security Service.


At the end of 2010, Shimon Samuels and Rabbi Abraham Cooper from the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles visited Malmö to judge the situation first-hand. They met in Stockholm with Reepalu and Sweden’s conservative Secretary of Justice Beatrice Ask. At these meetings Reepalu and Ask were informed that the Wiesenthal Center would issue a travel advisory for Jews visiting southern Sweden. Later, the Center issued a statement: “A contributing factor to this decision has been the outrageous remarks of Malmö mayor Ilmar Reepalu, who blames the Jewish community for failing to denounce Israel. The travel advisory urges extreme caution when visiting southern Sweden. It is not connected to last week’s Islamist terrorist bombing in the heart of Stockholm.”

When the Wiesenthal Center repeated the travel advisory at the beginning of 2012, Reepalu called the decision bizarre: “I get the impression that the aim of the [Simon Wiesenthal] Center is to make people forget what is going on in the state of Israel—human rights abuse that all people should denounce.” When I met with the mayor in February, he added: “I realize that this is a minefield, but I will happily enter it in order for this issue to get the right proportions. I get accused of being an anti-Semite when I say that Jews are actually not the only ones having a hard time, but that things are actually just as hard and sometimes even harder for other groups.”

It’s true—Jews aren’t the only residents of Malmö with safety concerns. Malmö’s high rates of crime have earned the city the moniker “Sweden’s Chicago.” In 2011 and early 2012, several people were killed in the city in what are believed to be gang shootings. When a teenage boy was shot dead on New Year’s Eve, more than a thousand people took to the streets to protest against the violence under the slogan “Enough, damn it.”

High crime rates, especially among certain immigrant communities, have caused deep anxiety for the people of Malmö—and yet politicians and pundits are reluctant to discuss the issue, partly out of a genuine fear of stirring up racism and Islamophobia. When I met with Ask in 2009, for example, I asked her whether crime among immigrants in Sweden caused her to worry. She would not hear of it. “What we in fact can see, however, is that many victims of crime are immigrants,” she told me. “And that worries me.”

Consider the fate of Rosengård, a housing project originally built in the late 1960s as part of the government’s plan to provide affordable, modern homes for the working class. In 1969, when Yasha and his wife Nina moved into Rosengård, having fled the anti-Semitic Polish government of Wladyslaw Gomulka, Rosengård stood as a monument of the egalitarian society that was under way, planned and executed by the Swedish Social Democratic Party.

Today, Rosengård has become the symbol of ghettoization at the heart of the Scandinavian welfare state. Out of Rosengård’s 22,000 inhabitants, 89 percent are immigrants or children of immigrants. Only 39 percent of residents between the ages of 20 and 64 are employed. In the capital of Stockholm, you would have to take a subway ride to the suburbs to see an area characterized by poverty and lack of assimilation. But Rosengård lies just a 25-minute walk from Malmö’s city center.

In 2008, when a mosque in Rosengård was refused a lease renewal, riots erupted. Cars were burned, and homemade bombs were thrown at police. Fire-fighters, ambulance drivers, and paramedics were welcomed in Rosengård with rocks and spitting. The Fire and Rescue service made the decision that ambulances could no longer enter the housing project without police escort, a policy that lasted for a few months.

Seved, also in Malmö, is an area similar to Rosengård. A majority of people in Seved are immigrants, and fewer than half of the adults are employed. Gangs command the street and deal drugs openly. Recently, the Swedish Postal Service decided that it would no longer deliver mail in the area, since its mail carriers were subjected to repeated attacks. Officials have responded to the news in a way typical of the policies of failed integration: The head of the town district, Anders Malmquist, told media that he is satisfied that local unemployed youth will now have an opportunity to get some work experience.

In this sense, the public debate in Sweden is different from that in neighboring Norway and Denmark, where pitfalls of failed integration are discussed more easily. In Swedish discourse, the violence, rioting, and attacks on fire-fighters and paramedics in areas like Rosengård are often explained with the same well-worn references to social inequalities that the left uses to account for similar phenomena in London and Paris. But those explanations are even less convincing in Sweden: When young people in Rosengård torch cars and attack ambulance drivers, their actions take place in one of the world’s most generous countries of asylum for refugees in one of the world’s most generous welfare states.

Sweden receives the world’s largest number of asylum-seekers per capita, not counting some countries that share borders with conflict areas. The county has received one of the highest numbers of Iraqi refugees per capita, and the Somali diaspora in Sweden is one of the world’s largest.

Swedish generosity is visible not only in the number of refugees that the country admits every year, but also in how they are treated once in the country. The Migrant Integration Policy Index, MIPEX, gives Sweden a perfect score (100 points out of 100) in giving immigrants equal opportunities to natives. Immigrants receive Swedish language classes for free, and students receive a daily allowance from the government for attendance. As additional incentive, the government rewards students with $900-$1,800 for finishing the course, depending on the level completed.

Newly arrived immigrants are provided with housing and a daily allowance from the government. Relatives from the country they left behind can apply for traveling expenses to join their family in Sweden. And like all other inhabitants in Sweden, those who cannot provide for themselves have a right to social security, which, according to Swedish law, must cover the cost of everything from food, clothes, and hygiene, to a daily newspaper, a phone, and membership in a workers’ union. Health care comes at a maximum cost of $167. If the bill runs higher, the government covers it. Dental care is free for children and teenagers. Sweden is also one of the only countries that offers free health care and education for illegal immigrants and their children—even after authorities have decided that they have no right to stay.

If this is social inequality, how far must a European society go in order to avoid violence and riots?

The claim that inequality is the root cause of violence in Malmö is not just absurd, it carries unacceptable implications: It means that Jews can do nothing but wait for society to become more equal, and for discrimination and unemployment to go away, before they can ask to feel safe in their own city.

Fredrik Sieradzski, 47, is a Jew from Malmö who got tired of waiting for the city’s politicians to take action against anti-Semitic threats and harassment. He recently initiated what he calls “kippah walks” through the streets of the city. Members of the community meet up after services on Saturdays and walk through town wearing visible Jewish symbols. He is critical of how the Swedish media portrays the situation for Malmö’s Jews. “They don’t write that the perpetrators are Muslims. I simply believe that it’s because the Jewish group is so much smaller than the Muslim,” he said. “Obviously, it’s just a minority of the Muslims in Malmö who threaten us, but we must be able to address the problem.” Last time around, his kippa walk gathered 20 people. Among them was one non-Jew who wanted to show his solidarity.

The kippah walks have become a way of dealing with a fear of anti-Semitism that permeates all aspects of Jewish life in Malmö. When Yasha passed away in 2010, as the mourners left the gates of the Jewish cemetery, his son-in-law warned the people who had traveled to Malmö to attend the service: “Take off your yarmulkes. Don’t forget that this is Rosengård.”

Carl says:

I fear that the rest of Europe is not far behind.

john says:

As a resident of Malmö the reason for this conflict is obvious, the large immigration and population of arab citizens in the city that blames swedish jews for Israels policies and the age old conflict between Islam and Judaism. A contributing factor to why this conflict in Malmö and Sweden never will be solved in the near future is the debate-climate that stipulates that if you in any way are negative against muslims or islam you are a racist by default. Even if the truth is that its muslims terrorizing jews in 99% of the cases, this can not be said in any way, shape or form because it will destroy your reputation and you’ll be labeled as a “xenophobe” by the mainstream media. It is truly a trying time for jewish people in sweden.

    Sounds like it is also a trying time for normal Swedes as well with political correctness running amok. Since when was being against religious fanaticism the same as racism. It isn’t, but there is an element in Sweden that needs to come down from the Ivory Tower of Nicety and save their nation from its creeping destruction.

shushan says:

world Jewry takes the blame for the nazionist Jew hating scum that run israel

Bryan says:

Shushan: How about anti-Semites have another excuse for anti-Semitism? If it weren’t Israel, it would be something. Haman hated the Jews because they wouldn’t assimilate, while Hitler hated them because they would. Put anti-Zionism over their in the pile with killing Jesus, putting Christian blood in Matzah, charging interest, causing plagues, causing wars, being capitalists, being communists, being clannish, being cosmopolitan, being religious, being atheists. Ultimately, anti-Semites had Jews because we continue to survive in spite of them. L’shanah hab’ah birushalayim!

Phil N says:

As we can see from those nations that are ruled by Islamic regimes (Iran, Saudi Arabia, Gaza etc.) religious tolerance is non existant. They demand rights for themselves in non Moslem countries that they never give others. It is unfortunate all the appolgists for Moslem behavior in both Europe and the US, including foolish Jews who think they will be protected. Even in the US, when Moslems gain control of a city like Dearborn, MI, religious liberty goes out the window.

Kenny says:

I’m curious why the author constantly refers to the attackers as “immigrants” as opposed to calling them Muslims. It’s as if she wants to discount the very real probability that there’s is a religious and cultural element to these “immigrants” dislike of Jews and Israel.

Also, the statement “…but has come to the city through immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East and is part of a larger, countrywide problem of failed integration” is apart from being the writer’s conclusion posed as a fact, an effort to blame everyone but the attackers for their attacks on Jews.

Oh, if only the Swedish government has done more for these poor immigrants, then maybe they wouldn’t be so currently anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.


    Its because the political climate in Sweden. She has to express herself that way, otherwise she will be labelled a racist.

    It is very easy to be labelled a racist, i bet even this article would be seen as rascist by some people on the left.

      Bore da, Morgan and you are right. Perhaps the solution is to evict those Muslims back to their hell holes of countries where their religion has created a cesspool of a life with their Sharia law and intolerance of others. They flee to beacons of light in the Christian West and then try to destroy the place to which they fled. They are evil and the Swedes need to wake up and protect their religious minorities from those evil villains before the indigenous Swedes are also being persecuted if they arent already by the Muslim fanatics.

        Anon Ymous says:

        Eviction is not enough. The scum need to be gassed like they will do to us.

Asaf Glaich says:

Jews should leave Malmo, Sweden and Europe. Have we not learned anything?

thunder2020 says:

Heartbreaking… Let’s hope that the Swedes wake up, if only for their own sake. As usual, the Jews are the ‘canary in the coalmine’ as they say.

And of course it won’t stop the usual suspects (many of them Jews, some even orthodox) here in the USA clamoring for more respect for Islam.

Kuffar says:

This is what happens to any society which tolerates Mohammedans. As Jews and as humans we need to stand at the forefront of those fighting against the Shari’ah, dismantling the Mohammedan colonies everywhere and punishing “Palestine”.

Our president, who yesterday gave his unconditional support for the Nazi-organized Ikhwan (used to be known as the blackshirts because Mohammedanism is identical to Nazism) will also engage in similar policies when he gets his second term.

Let us pray for the suffering of the Mohammedans of Mälmo, but recognize that the true.criminals are those who tolerate Shari’ah. CAIR-Hamas is identical to the American Nazi Party.

David says:

I’m a Jew who lives in Sweden. I don’t live in Malmö but I have a few relatives there(all are planning to move to Israel or USA).

Ms. Neuding has been brave in sounding the alarm but she has also paid a heavy price. She has been attacked as a racist and a islamophobe. Yet, the head of the Jewish community in Malmö has said time and time again that 99 % of the attacks on Jews are by muslims.

But this isn’t simply acceptable. Most Swedish media elites cannot comprehend a reality where a minority group is racist towards another, let alone the majority population(both is true).

Sweden has given it’s muslim immigrants everything and then some more. They’ve failed the test completely and they can only blame themselves for their propensity towards violence, rape and attacks on minorites(like Jews).

Yet, the Jewish community at large in Sweden are almost braindead. They still think the biggest threat are the isolated, powerless and incredibly few neo-Nazis. Many, indeed, even welcome mass muslim immigration despite the scandalous anti-Semitism that they witness every day.

A lot of ‘average’ Jews don’t hold these idiotic opinions, but the Jewish community in Sweden is small and it’s run by a tight group who have been in power forever and don’t really listen that well to what Jews on the street are telling them.

I know it may not be very politically correct to an American audience, but frankly, the Islamic world today is sprouting the same anti-Semitic filth on a regular basis that Nazi Germany did in the 1930s.

Just look at what they are telling their children – incitement to kill Jews on TV in dressed up bunnies. It’s sickening.

With the backdrop of Toulouse, and the Western media’s inability to call a spade a spade after it was revealed a jihaidst, not a neo-Nazi, had killed Jews, I don’t really see a bright future for European Jewry. As always, the richer Jews and/or more foresighted will leave first. I am already on my way.

Let Malmö be a lesson to all Jews.

    Carlos_Perera says:

    David, I am truly saddened by the plight of Sweden’s Jews, a law-abiding, productive, and just people who deserve better. As to Americans perceiving your (correct) assertion, that the Islamic world is today’s premier purveyor of Nazi-level anti-Semitism, to be politically incorrect, let me assure you that at least half–likely more–of us think no such thing: we know what is happening to Jews all over the world, when they confront what Samuel Huntington termed “the bloody borders of Islam.” Even in the U. S., we see similar things happen wherever Moslems reach a certain critical mass, e.g., Dearborn, Michigan.

    Please do get out of Sweden as soon as you can, and try to convince as many of your coreligionists to leave with you. They would be most welcome in the U. S.; we could use immigrants of their caliber.

    Anon Ymous says:

    While you are certainly welcome in the U.S., I would recommend you go instead to Israel because it is our homeland, and also it would be a slap in the face to all those anti-Semites.

    Steven Bannister says:

    And just WHO invited all these Muslims into Europe David? Wasn’t it….the Jews?

    Wasn’t it the Jews who pushed their policies of open borders, multiculturalism and political correctness on Europe? Just as they have also done to the United States? Wasn’t it the Jews who insisted that white Europeans and Americans were narrow-minded, intolerant, racist xenophobes for not wanting to open their borders and “celebrate diversity?”

    Well, the Jews have now gotten what they wanted! Europe and America have now opened their borders and the Third World is pouring in! Pretty soon Europe and America will be non-white, non-Christian lands! This is what the Jews wanted – RIGHT David? Well guess what – the Jews will now have to live with the monster they’ve created!

    Yes, by all means, let Malmo be a lesson to all Jews, by all means!

Asaf says:

Sweden had lost, Jews of Europe, come back home to Israel.

Raymond in DC says:

“According to the 2011 census, one in 10 Malmö citizens comes from the Middle East and North Africa, and ethnic Swedes are no longer in the majority among 15-year-olds.”

What this tells me is that Sweden has only another generation or two before those immigrants from Middle East and North Africa constitute a working majority in Sweden. Ethnic Swedes have small families, unlike those (mostly Muslim) immigrants, who can also bring their relatives to join them, with Sweden paying for the privilege.

FreeMind says:

“Jews should leave Malmo, Sweden and Europe. Have we not learned anything?”

No they should not. Many Jewish people have been in Europe for 2,000 years, if you didn’t know (and not just the Ashkenazi ones). They are not strangers in Europe and shouldn’t apologize for existing to any hater.

    If you ask me, we are all human beings and should treat each other that way. So long as we follow the agreed terms of immigration there shuldnt be problem But treating others as first class will lead us to be declassified lesser by others too and violence metted out in equal harvested measures! IF jews have lived in Europe for 2000 years, why do they have to reclaim present day Israel? They should have just stayed in their 2000 years homes in Europe. But why were they slaughtered at Auswitch if indeed Europe was theur home?

      Umish Katani says:

      what does that have to do with the price of soap in china….. reclaiming Israel has nothing to do with living in Europe and your last question was insulting as much as it was ludicrous.

      Carlos_Perera says:

      Jews may have been in Europe for two millennia, but the Holocaust–remember that little historical event?–happened well within living memory. Who can blame the Jews of Europe for wanting to have their own (historic) homeland after that? And they transformed a sliver of real estate that had been allowed to decay into swamp and desert by the Moslems into something close to the promised “land of milk and honey.”

Jacob Silver says:

One would never have thought that Sweden would be inhospitable for Jews. Here it should be remembered that for democracies, Jews are the miners’ canaries. And, again, we understand the necessity of Israel for Jews, when they need a safe refuge.

Rocky says:

The Jewish population has also been on a sharp decline in Montreal (language issues) and South Africa (racial issues) in recent decades. Even Israel has seen thousands of its young people move to Germany in recent years for better opportunities. Read here:

babawawa says:

What is the GNP of Sweden that they can afford to pay for everything? Won’t that run out eventually? Then what? The Muslims will go home?

Rachel Golem says:

It is very unpleasant, but I know that Europeans do not wake every morning and say, “I love Arabs and Muslims so much, I wish more would move to my country”.

The Swedes and rest of Europe have mostly already come to their senses. The problem is that in 50 years, there will be 3 white people left in Europe.

Hershl says:

Excellent and very disturbing article.

Sweden is on its way to becoming the capitol of the world’s illiterates, human garbage, and ignoramuses who, basically, are showered with money and citizenship.

You write: Sweden receives the world’s largest number of asylum-seekers per capita..

The largest number in the world?

Yes, in the entire world.

They have no one but themselves to blame for this deplorable situation.

Once you allow such people in you will never, ever get rid of them and the many problems they inevitably bring with them.

As you write, they are also invited to bring all their families with them to be supported forever by the Swedish government.

The Swedes have now forfeited their right to a civilized society. They have given the keys to the kingdom to those who not only will strip the land bare of anything they can grab but then beat up the law abiding citizens, rape the women, and force shariah, the ignorance that passes for Muslim domination, on everyone.

The mayor of Malmo is a traitor who deserves to not only be exposed for the shameless scum he is but also must be punished.

He has declared war on Israel and the civilized world with his blatant inflammatory statements.

     Good points!  As to the “asylum seeker” label for the Arabs, asylum from what?

      Umish Katani says:

      good question… if they are running from the autocracy of their homelands why bring the ideological crap with them. If they want to recreate their homelands then it is not asylum but domination

      Asylum from murderous regimes, or don’t you read the news?

tantelaeh says:

Time to turn the ungrateful Muslim back to their own lands. This is the prediction of Nostrodamus: In 2021 the Muslims will be thrown out of Europe. Sweden needs to start early.
There is no integrating them into society. Just ask France or Germany.

Mike0oSS says:

I guess the whole “diversity” thingy has caught up with the “Square Heads”…American for Swedes.

Catherine Crabill says:

The insanity of antisemitism rears its ugly head again. The Bible has warned of these days and the culmination of the hatred of the world directed at the land and the people He chose. God will not be mocked. To hate Israel is to hate God. The day of judgement looms. Woe unto those who give sway to the subjugation and wishful annihilation of the people of God.

observeer says:

Inocent civilians? LOL, I HAVE BEENN THERE, I have seen what those “innocent civilians” launch every day to Israel. What happen is that the ignorance is literally rampant.

JoseUSA says:

Let us not forget that the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin El Husseini, assisted Hitler in bringing the Holocast to a frenzy by propagating pro-Nazi activities in the Middle East and raising more than 20,000 Muslim troops, who were mostly in the Hanjar Waffen SS. Unfortunately in my opinion, Islam and Nazism are cut from the same cloth.

Wal Man says:

Looks like Sweden is going to guilt themselves out of a country. Eventually all facets of Swedish society will feel the bite of radical Islam. Swedes will then be on the move trying to get into other countries. But what if the other countries, like the U.S. have done the same thing? There will be no place to hide. The susidized populations of the Muslims will overwelm that of their responsible supporters. I see nothing but chaos, shortages and dispare for the Socialist States of Sweden and the U.S.

Canada says:

Commenter David of Sweden’s comment is worth noting. I hope people read it carefully. It’s very difficult for anyone outside Sweden to understand the mindset of the average Swede after decades of its Social Democratic experiment.

The nation is literally brainwashed into certain social and political beliefs that have, sadly, given rise to this situation. Yet somehow its ages-old Christian anti-Semitism hasn’t budged much beneath all that ‘social equality’ experiment.

I hope the Jews just get out (to where…? shades of WWII). Let the proto-Communist Swedes have their [carefully named]’immigrants.’

It’s also an issue in Canada, where our niceness is at odds with immigrants who arrive with a concept of social rights but no social responsibility.

     As a fellow Canadian, I do agree that this has been an issue here, however on a smaller scale, the size of countries considered.  It seems that the current Canadian government is starting to take measure, akin to Israel, to curb this.

David says:

Hi, ‘Canada’. I do hope my comment makes people think twice. What is happening in Malmö is increasingly happening all over Sweden.

However, Ilmar Reepalu may be an anti-Semite but Sweden as a whole isn’t. The vast majority of Swedes hold distinctly positive opinions of Jews. The problem is the media here. The huge irony is that almost all owners of our media are Jewish. But they’re not really Jewish in the fullest sense. Many know more about liberalism than Judaism.

You wouldn’t believe most owners of our media are Jewish when you see the constant attacks on Israel in our press. It’s some kind of psychosis, the same kind that makes most establishment Jews very eager to continue mass immigration of muslims.

The dulled reactions to anti-Semitism should be put in context. Most violence from the muslim immigrants are against ethnic Swedes(specifically young girls, Sweden has the highest per-capita assault rapes in the entire Western world. Not a coincidence).

This is why the rise of the anti-immigrant parties come to the fore(who also happen to be very pro-Israel, but if that’s a genuine position or just a charade is anybody’s guess). In order to keep the multicultural ideal going, all these things have to be suppressed. Political correctness in Sweden makes a country like Canada seem like a right-wing firestorm in comparison. I think it’s more extreme here than in any other place in the world. Thus, attacks against Jews by muslims are met with silence, because muslims are treated as victims of ‘social inequality’, which is a huge hoax of course.

This constant brainwashing is the reason why most Western media is against Israel. At root is a noble ideal: all human beings are created equal. And, yes, we are. But not all cultures are equal. And as we grow up, we become tainted by the cultures that surround us. That is a lesson the left(which has hegemony over university and media elites) can never accept. Which is why anti-Semitism is allowed and Israel attacked.

    Eurobaby says:

     David, you spot on regarding the ‘psychosis’ in play here. This nonsensical, illogical, self-loathing (barely scraping the tip of the iceberg)  types of behavior should be subject literally to scientific investigation (corpus collosum failure?)- something is seriously wrong. We see hypocrisy run-riot of the left specifically with Jews (thus the peril they subject themselves). They bash the very institutions that have saved them-in fact regarding them as the enemy (the doctrines of the Christian church, America and its intrinsic capitalist model, etc), advocate the easy and frequent hurling of invectives and accusations like ‘racist’, ‘-phobe (despite claims to tolerance)’.  It cannot be denied that throughout history Jews have failed to see the ‘real enemy’ and too often invite the ‘real’ enemy into their home, aid and abet them – with tragic results.

    So. The Swedish media is owned and controlled by brain-dead, psychotic Jews who promote mass immigration of.Muslims who rape young Swedish girls. — What a nuanced and balanced world view you have. Admirable.

Dr. Finch says:

The author of this article doesn’t have the balls to identify the problem; it’s with Islam that wants to erase Jews and Christians alike. All of the “progressive” European countries are experiencing what happens when you invite uncivilized vermin in with antique minds and give them EVERYTHING. Read INFIDEL if it hasn’t registered by now. The Christians, Jews and any other group that cherish freedom for all men and women need to stand together against this plague. Remember if it wasn’t for Charles Martel we would all be facing east 6 times a day. Look at the number of headscarves in Malmo. Count the number of honor rapes and murders in that town. The police get fire bombed any time they try to intervene with sharia. No one in that town has the guts to say it the way it is.Good luck- I hope they are gentle with you.

     Grim, but still the truth!

    Aahil Ramson says:

    What an ignorant statement. Jews live in Iran. Islam has nothing against Jews. In fact the Quran calls them “people of the book”. Zionism is what Islam is against. Zionism which we see in Israel and practised by many of Israel’s politicians is the same as nazism. I live in Malmö. NO honor rape has happened here. The murders that DO happen here is in fact gang related and those are Serbians and Croats killing each other. And what are Serbs and Croats?? CHRISTIANS! DOes it mean that Christianity is evil? The Police get fire bombed just like the Police gets fire bombed in ghettos in South America and the US. I guess Catholicism is to blame!

Exactly, Dr. Finch.
Blaming the Jews in SWEDEN for what is happening in Israel is a pretty dumb excuse.
Sweden is just a Jew hating country now.
Get used to Sweden turning over to Islam, totally.
Good, you get what you ask for, in not obeying God.
“I will bless those that bless you, and curse them that curse you”

Tough. Deal with Sharia and stupidity, you DESERVE IT.

Jews of Sweden, come home to Israel! And if you can’t, stay strong!

What is so astounding is that Christians don’t really understand the situation. They are next.

Janina says:

Why would any Jew want to live in such a scum hole? Get the hell out as quickly as you can. Much better places to live than Malmo. Maybe the Jews of Malmo can seek asylum from racist persecution in the USA?

    Why should the
    Jews of Malmo come to a nation with a high level of unemployment, crumbling infrastructure, and a crappy health care system?

vlad says:

Funny…one always reads about the “tolerant” leftist eurotrash societies. they are not tolerant of anything not in perfect alignment with their nonsensical, unsustainable viewpoints.

    IT’s not native swedes who attack jews. It’s the muslim immigrants. 

       Maybe you are only half-correct?  In Norway it is the muslim migrants AND the Norwegians they have managed to corrupt and contaminate.

      fact of the matter is they are reaping what they sowed! Division and hate! Its the Torah or the good book that says you reap what you sow! Not me so no need to attack me! Infact this book was written in Israel. Karma is a BITCH!

      Umish Katani says:

      It wasnt the polacks who killed the jews.. it was the nazis….please

        Excuse me, Umishi, but your analogy is irrelevant. Is it or is it not a fact that Muslims are disproportionately attacking jews in Sweden? It is a fact, and the few whites who you may find doing it are the minority.

        I have no idea how you could blame right wingers for muslim attacks against jews.

        Besides, Israel is one of the most right wing countries in the modern world. Only very few countries still have the gall to explicitly state as their immigration policy that humans of a certain race have preference.

          Anon Ymous says:

          That is total bullshit, people who have Swedish ancestry can automatically obtain Swedish citizenship, same with Germans and Germany.

          Same with British ancestry, italian, spanish, portuguese, let’s say the question should be who acts differently from this, hahaha…

How easy to reduce all that is negative down to the inborn, immutable “wrongness” of all Muslims. Obviously the near impossibility of incorporating large populations of immigrants from wildly different cultures into European democracies like Sweden is creating chaos, suffering and enormous frustration. But I would suggest that the real issues are global and systemic. In our hyper-entangled world, cause and effect are maddeningly hard to isolate. We grasp convenient narrative frames to help make sense of unprecedented complexity. Thus, a story like: “Muslims will always hate Jews and we can never co-exist.” can be enormously appealing and, moreover, can be backed up with plenty of evidence. It takes great courage and awareness to admit that, perhaps, there are other ways to frame the narrative that might open up possibilities other than a perpetual war of all against all. I imagine that some of the early Zionists (like Martin Buber, Ahad Ha’Am, Hannah Arendt et al) were trying to do just that.

re previous post:
A hell of a lot of Muslims DO hate Jews, the track record for co-existence is bad around the world and much worse in the Middle East (not that the one-stater idiots seem to notice or care about this) and it’s nice to read that the problem is Zionism’s unwillingness to allow itself to be wiped out in a war it didn’t start and/or take on someone like Hannah Arendt’s ideas like they were delivered at Mt. Sinai. The problem here flows mainly from the direction of Malmo’s incompetent Mayor and the violent groups he makes excuses for. I don’t think making MORE apologetics available for them is going to help the situation.
Also, thanks to the author for mentioning in passing the Israel-Sweden 2009 Davis Cup business. I recall that ended with Sweden being humiliatingly ousted from the Cup, Malmo being put out of hosting business for at least five years, and Mayor Asshole looking like, well, what he is. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy and his minions.

    And why do Muslims hate Jews ? Come on, be fair. During the time of the Spanish Inquisition,  Spanish Jews were forcibly baptised fled to the Ottoman Empire where upon reaching its shores, they publically announced their reversion to Judaism. The facts show that all in all, Jews had fared better in the Muslim world than Christiandom. Can you show a Muslim equivalent to the Final Solution for Jews ? The current anti-Semiticism among modern Muslims are directly linked to Israel, how it came about ( by stealing Arab lands ), killing and maiming the Palestinians in order to maintain its occupation. How can it not ? 

      Monkish says:

      Wrong. The 19th century was a particularly bloody time for the Middle East’s Jews with massacres in Bagdad (1828) , Damascus (1840) and Mashhad (1839) – to mention only the most murderous pogroms.

      Muslim anti-Semitism exploded in the 1920s with the founding of the fascism-inspired Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The first Arabic editions of classic anti-Semitic conspiracy theories such as the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion were published in this period – that’s two decades before Israel’s Declaration of Independence. 

      Your assertion that current Muslim anti-Semitism is linked to Israel’s actions is patently false. The utterly fantastical character of Muslim Jew-hatred (Jews control the world etc.), its theological undertones, its wilful exaggeration/distortion of facts having to do with the Is/Pal situation point to a loathing that is not rooted in the real world but that has become a mass delusion with a logic and momentum of its own.

        federbender says:

        FaraisA–a little history lesson here.
        In the 1920s and 1930s, Muhammed al-Amin al-Husseini, the “Grand Mufti of Jerusalem,” organized a series of riots in which he urged Muslims to “massacre the Jews to the last man.” He organized the deadly “Arab Revolt” of 1936-1939. Exiled by the British, he fled to Germany where he became a friend of Adolph Eichmann and encouraged speeding up the Holocaust. He became a major general in the Waffen SS and organized the Bosnian “SS mountain divisions” that exterminated Jewish communities and attacked Serbian towns and villages. (Ever wonder why the Serbs supported Milosovec in his campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Bosnians?)
        After the war, the Mufti was not tried at Nuremberg because the Allies feared a Muslim uprising. He was hailed in Egypt as a hero. All this, you might note, was BEFORE Israel even existed. He organized the assassination of King Abdullah of Jordan when he learned that that monarch was considering making peace with Israel.

        As you put it, come on, be fair. You can verify all this by googling The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Any questions?

      Anon Ymous says:

      “Palestinians” are illegal colonists from Arabia who stole the West Bank from the Jews. They are usurpers and imperialists trying to re-create the Abbasid Caliphate. The so-called “West Bank” belongs to Jews. It is part of Judah. Hebron is the birthplace of King David. The so-called “Palestinians” are the most evil and racist people in the world.

      You are obviously an Arabian imperialist and Arab supremacist.

It’s ironic: the left pride themselves on being empathetic to and understanding “the other”. But they are so narcissistic and obtuse, they can’t recognize that “the other” doesn’t think like they do.

For the left, it simply doesn’t compute that others may operate with a completely different worldview, value system, and set of objectives.

The Golden Rule doesn’t apply in such a culture and any efforts to appease with the fruits of civilization are simply pocketed and viewed as oblation.

    Eurobaby says:

    SO true SF. Liberal, thy name is hypocrite. Shock us sometime and demonstrate some of that tolerance you screech and preach.

As always, the left is always focused on Israel as the baddie of the world. I’m sure Chinese can walk unmolested anywhere even though any objective observer would see that the Chinese policies in Tibet are by any objective measurement much, much worse than anything Israel has done.

I wish I could go to Malmo right now and participate in the Kippah walk!

Andream says:

The Jews of Malmo should come one and all to Israel and leave the city to its Nazi mayor and Muslim citizens. If there was any culture, art, education, music, diversity, intellectualism, curiosity, innovation, tolerance, critical thought, freedom or creativity in that city, it will soon be gone with the Jews. Enjoy your sharia and burkas citizens of Malmo!

Ron Boto says:

I think it is interesting how the words of the mayor could actually be spoken by almost anyone, anywhere in the world. Hatred for God’s people, whether the Hebrews of old or Christians today, is universal. Our choice is either to draw close to God or expect to defend ourselves on our own.

DavidR says:

Enough of this nonsense. Come to Israel already. Europe for Jews is like a Final Destination movie. You don’t know when or where but eventually and inevitably Jews in any European country will be persecuted, expelled or destroyed.

Some think America or Canada are good options to flee to or stay in. That is what those people fleeing to Sweden and France thought only two generations ago.

Why pick another foreign place for your children to run away from? Come to Israel and build your life here!

    DisposableWorker says:

    Leave to where? If you are not orthodox; Israel won’t have you. The US isn’t taking any working class Jews from Scandinavia ,now and neither are the EU nations. That leaves Canada and Australia if you can make the hard requirements. The Check Republic is open; but that will end soon. It really is like the old days. The high born Jews won’t accept us and everybody else wants to kill us because of the faults in those who won’t accept us.
    I also understand a previous commenter’s statement about national loyalties. Being an American is very important to me. I see this as the best place on earth. My family has been here since the late nineteenth century. Why should I be forced to leave? Israel keeps out non orthodox Jews. They don’t keep out Christians, or Muslims, or Hindus, or atheists; just us. So our conscience tells us that  Torah is as we see it and you say it can only be as you tell us it is. This alone condemns a world full of Jews to one Shoah after another.  And as far as this Mayor; it is typical of collectivist cowards. They can’t bring themselves to visit evil upon us daily themselves; so they import people sympathetic to their hate and use them as surrogate muggers.
    יד האלוהים

      Correction: the USA was the best place on Earth until Reagan (more like his handlers-there’s no way that a senile pathetic fool like him could ever be president) launched his ‘revolution'; after that, it was a slow, but steady ride to the bottom. Please get better info about your nation from outlets other than Faux Noise.

      Anon Ymous says:

      That’s not true; Israel takes anyone who has at least one ethnic Jewish parents, regardless of religion. Just look at all the Russians who move there.

      Israel is full non-certified “jewish” people. They will let any old swede that can draw a magden david on his passport in crayon get behind a bulldozer there. They just stopped letting in obvious Christian grifters who wanted the allowance involved with the right of return. Tons of nationalistic american Christians who call themselves “Messianic Jews” aren’t paid to move there, but they are certainly allowed if they pass the necessary psychological screening. There have been quite a few under reported christian terrorists in Israel posing as jewish. Try and tell a white guy he can;t take over a country armed only with entitlement and replacement theology and he takes it as a damn challenge.

    Sweeden should do what Israel does; simply say NO to certain races and only allow approved races to immigrate. This is exactly what Israel does, and exactly what Europe has done the opposite of. 

      Israel does not say no to certain RACES, they say no to certain NATIONALITIES. Why would anyone brag about a country being racist? That is super insane. They are an asylum for many people fleeing persecution for sexual orientation from many countries in the area and they are the single biggest grantor of temporary work visas to Thai post-op trans people in the whole of the mid east or Africa.

michaelira says:

Sweden sat out WW2, and its neighbor Norway was home to Vidkun Quisling, the notorious collaborator whose name is now a synonym for a traitor. Anyone expecting courageous treatment of its Jews or Muslims by these countries is living in dreamland. Time for the Jews in those cesspools to return to Israel before the Scandinavian version of Kristallnacht occurs, and the rest of the world blames the Jews for inciting the murderous violence that befalls them.

    nevilleross says:

    Where do you, and many of the people commenting, get your bullshit anti-Muslim nonsense from? Faux Noise?

    And as said before, where are the Swedish Jews going to go? The USA isn’t great for them (for a lot of reasons, quality of life being one of them), nor is Israel. Got any other places that can go? And, have you and the other right-wing Israel-can-do-no-wrongers ever considered that what Israel’s doing in the West Bank and Gaza Strip is causing this wave of hatred towards Israel, the United States, and Jewish people in general from Muslims?

      Screw you Muslim. Islam is a religion of hate so stop acting like its only the Jews! If they were gone muslims would just find another reason to kill. How about these——- Cartoons, being a christian in Egypt, Hell Being a Christian anywhere, disagreeing with Shria law, and the list goes on and on the fact is that Islam is a religion of death not peace.  Every land that has a muslim population there are a shitload of honor killings and just plain killing killings. So piss off you F’n piece of Islamic Trash!!!!!!

        And by that it shows  that you know nothing either about Islam itself or global politics. I doubt you have ever read a translation of the Quran, much less an exegesis of it, say by Imam Qurthubi or Imam At-Thabari. Go ahead, read one. You’ll be surprise. Do you know that the Quran describes churches and synogogues as places where the name of God is often celebrated ? Or that it describes the Gospel and the Torah as among divinely-sanctioned books ? To blame Islam for anti-Semiticism among Muslims is to betray a ridiculous level of ignorance or bigotry. 

          Monkish says:

          Sunni Islam is predicated on the rejection of both the Torah and the Gospels as corrupted texts. Sunni Muslims (and, as far as I know, the Shi’a as well) hold the view that Jews and Muslims wilfully distorted the word of God to suit their own interests and that the versions of Biblical narratives found in the Qur’an are alone true (this is the essence of Ibn Hazm’s doctrine of “Tahrif”). It is, therefore, complete wrong to claim, as you do, that Muslims acknowledge the sanctity and canonicity of Jewish and Christian scripture. If you are a Muslim I suggest you study your religion with a little more assiduity before posting sweet sounding, but shallow and un-Islamic, nonsense.

           Amen to that!

          peter wilk says:

          >>’ I doubt you have ever read a translation of the Quran, much less an exigesis of it..’

          Neither have the majority of Muslims.  And as for an exegesis, well other religions generally do not ‘forcefully prohibit’ people from forming their own interpretation of their holy writings.  The point is made.

           AND the point you make is excellent!

          federbender says:

          FarisA–I know a good deal about Islam;in fact, I have written about it. I have in my library several translations of the Quran, including that by H.M. Shakir and by Abdullah Yusuf Ali.

          The problem is that you can find suras that actually contradict each other if you cherry pick. And since the suras, or chapters, are organized by length, not by chronology, you have to know your history to piece together why this is so. The verses you describe were recorded in Yathrib, or Medina, before the Jews rejected Mohammed’s bid to be the Messiah for whom he knew the Jews waited. I refer you to “the Constitution of Medina.” In fact, Mohammed adopted many Jewish customs, such as the banning of pork.

          The about-face came in the Mosque of the Two Qiblas, when Mohammed angrily swung around from facing Jerusalem to facing Mecca and his relations with the Jews turned murderous.

          Look you just said the verses can be picked to support what ever position you pick. So clearly you people chose to hate because it is in your nature, not even just in your religion to be hateful and obscene. But it’s not in ours, at least not to such an extent. Can’t we just stay away from each other and you know live in our own culture that we DID not destroy. Every time you people flee to a nation you ALWAYS bring Islam/Pakistan with you, but Westerners/Europeans like our Country, we don’t want to live in Pakistan! If you like Pakistan then keep living there. But if you decide to move then grab a clean slate and leave your hate behind! You people…

          Anon Ymous says:

          No one gives a fuck about your Quran, we look at your actions as citizens and what you “contribute” to society. Which in your cause is just a bunch of hate crimes whether is against your own muslim women for wanting to get educated or for speaking out agains being your slave, or against the jewish people, or agains the swedish people. You name it. A path of terror and hate follows you people where ever you go, but somehow you ALWAYS think you’re some sort of a martyr. Look just because you reproduce like horny bunnies and you sparked the sympathy of a few trusting nations doesn’t mean you have a right to excuse your own violent and counter-productive behaviour.

        Excuse me sir, but I’m not Muslim; I just don’t like bigotry and racism against
        Muslims from people claiming to be against racism  from Muslims. I know that what’s happening is terrible, but that’s no excuse for counter-racism to be expressed against Muslims from Jews. And, it doesn’t help the situation any in Europe or in Israel.

          Eurobaby says:

           You don’t like ‘bigotry’ or ‘racism’? Unless of course your are a ‘right winger’ or that most heinous of acts, watch ‘Faux Noise’ aka Fox News.

          Anon Ymous says:

          No, it is a perfect excuse. If we are oppressed by Muslims, then Muslims need to be oppressed right back. An eye for an eye is the only true justice.

          Jews gave up on that crap about a thousand years ago. The only true justice is creating conditions that prevent violence in the first place.

          Personally i think Jewish people have a right to defend themselves especially since they are being put through genocide AGAIN this time by the oh so holy muslims. It’s not racist to speak against the tortures you inflict on your host nations, It’s called freedom of speech, don’t know if it exists in Muslim Countries though…

          Everyone in your presence is being bullied by your people! and on our own land!! I’m not Jewish but i am on their side, and we all know that your hate doesn’t just go towards one group, you like to hate and divide everyone you live around, it’s just one of those pesky traits you all are so proud of.

          I mean bringing the sexist barbaric horny ways to Sweden with the highest rape rates IN EUROPE most of which are committed by the clean modest folk that is MUSLIMS! And all while being paid money by these same people you are spitting on. No one wants to mate with you things, not even your poor enslaved women…so what a good way to force the passing of very bad genetics that are usually aborted by anyone with sanity.

          But don’t worry, your luck will run out soon. And even the nicest Liberals in the world are gonna reach their limit with you and your parasitic bully ways. The kindness will run out, and the Nords will come out, and push you back the the great Countries you came from and deserve to live in.

Someone must stand up against what they are doing to innocent people… so no you are not against racism but rather against standing up to racism, at least when it comes to Muslims. And why are Muslims allowed to be racist to others? Is that because i’m speaking to a Muslim or just a very very stupid person? Or maybe both. Well either way you clearly have nothing worthwhile to say.

        I am not a Muslim, sir, but I am intolerant of bigotry, and I don’t like what I’m reading here on this site. That’s all there its to it.

I mean when they are locked with each other they just hate on their equally muslim neighbours. Then when their whole nation is in havoc and in self inflicted war they flee like cowards. But only to REPEAT the exact same thing in other countries. BUT WHY NOT CHANGE OR STAY IN YOUR ALREADY CORRUPTED COUNTRY!? GEEZ. These bitches are wack.

          There are two ways to dehumanize somebody- by turning them into a monster or turning them into a mythical, animal-like innocent that can do no wrong and is not responsible for itself. I am an american that votes democrat- and I see the tactics to frame terrorists as helpless children in the need of a good conversion to western thought for what it is- an attack on their cultural solvency and person-hood. You got one thing right, ARE out of hand here the way they talk about muslims as less than people- but you’re doing the exact same thing. Only you do not acknowledge them as adults- large populations of Muslims do attack jews. You just expect jews to act “better” because you think jews have felt the magical benefits of your western culture and foolishly held on to their own experiences and culture, because you are a self-righteous and intolerant tosser. They are speaking from understandable fear and anger- you suffer from the delusion mentioned my another poster. You really think your culture is superior and if only those wild, pure hearted forest animals-er Muslim immigrants- could learn your ways you would have an inspirational Tarzan-style montage to Phil Collin’s ” Strangers Like me”. In your mind when exposed to your superior culture they would breathlessly thank you like the starving kids on missionary informercials. In reality you are less honest and much more bigoted , neville. Get a grip.

I am not anti-Semitic in any way, nor am I anti-Israeli; I am, however, anti-imperialist, and that’s what I’m criticizing Israel for-imperialism. Nothing more, and nothing less.

          It’s not anti-muslim. It’s anti-terrorist. And for some reason most of the Muslims happen to be anti-semitic terrorist who also hate the Scandinavians and generally all whites. What holy deed did the Muslims do for any society?(bringing havoc does not count as a holy deed btw) Where as Jewish people have made so many important and creative contributions to the whole world. But yet every Muslim i meet DEMANDS this superior treatment that he/she doesn’t deserve.

          Why come to a Country to escape the old injustices if you’re just gonna bring the injustices into the new Country and refuse to change. Look just go back to your Iran, and kill each other and spread havoc there and love your way of life. Leave us the fuck alone since you are so superior, please. We did nothing to deserve your plague. We worked hard, loved each other and other people, tried to be liberal and as humanitarian as possible(while you killed and oppressed your own women and children). If you truly wanted peace or to be accepted you would have treated us with the respect we deserved for taking you in, instead of spitting in our faces, and disrespecting our already existent culture that YOU chose to flee to, and by not only refusing to assimilate but by shoving your failed beliefs down our throats.

          Why don’t you learn some respect for other human being before leaving your own corrupted Muslim Countries. Maybe then when you learn respect you wont continue to corrupt and bring havoc upon new land. You are judged by the content of character the majority of your people show, and that character is just morally poor.

      Nevilleross–I refer you to my post above on Mohammed Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem,–and the uncle of Mohammed Abdel-raouf Arafat as Qudwa al-Husseini, better known as Yasser Arafat– who urged his followers in the1920s and during the “Arab Revolt” of 1936-1939 to “slaughter the Jews.” Pal of Adolph Eichmann; major general of Waffen SS Bosnian divisions, leader of assassination of King Abdullah of Jordan to prevent a recognition of Israel in 1948.

      No, the information is not from Faux Noise. Google the Grand Mufti and follow any of the many sites.

      As the 19th century humorist Josh Billings put it, “It ain’t so much what a man don’t know as makes him a fool. It’s what he knows what ain’t so.”

        Throwing a ton of stuff at me isn’t going to cover up the fact that what’s been said here is bigotry of the first order, and isn’t helping relations between Christians, Jews, and Muslims any in Israel, Sweden, or the USA any.

          Anon Ymous says:

          Stop trying to pretend that Christians, Jews, and Muslims are equal. They are not. Christians and Jews are for the most part civilized, but Muslims are murderous and primitive Nazis that want nothing more than to slaughter all Jews.

          Ha not just the jews that they want to slaughter. They want to slaughter everything that is not muslim and THEN start killing each other based on gender differences and all of that barbaric fun stuff they love doing.

      Carlos_Perera says:

      The Jewish demographic of the U. S. is one of the most–possibly _the_ most–successful one in the country. As to quality of life, unless the Left here manages to run our economy and ancient freedoms into the ground (as they have done in places like California), men and women who are willing to work hard, study hard, and invest wisely–in other words, people like the Jews of Sweden–have a much better chance at happiness than the tranquilized zombies who live in the (for now) gilded cages of European social democracies . . . which are quickly devolving into soft-totalitarian polities.

        The ‘Left’ haven’t run anything into the ground, sir-they’re not even in power in most parts of the USA nor do they have any real influence on U.S. politics that I can see. The Right, on the other had, has and does have power, and we can all see the results; widespread poverty, starvation, unemployment, terrible health care, and now, a decreased middle class-all thanks to the Reagan ‘Revolution’ launched in 1980.

     Sad, but very true!   Scandinavia as a whole, together with an increasing number of European countries, seem on the verge of a new nightmare, reminiscent of WWII.

      Hyperbole much? How about you stop watching Faux Noise and seek out better information sources that aren’t so pro-Zionist and anti-Muslim like Tablet and Faux Noise?

The only reason Israel exists is because of American Jews making America support it–we have money and we vote. If all American Jews left for Israel, the USA would sell out Israel for the oil, and all the Jews in Israel would be killed.

World Jewry needs to hedge our bets. A few in Israel, a few in North America, a few in South America, a few in Europe. The Holocaust failed because there were Jews outside of Europe. If we are everywhere, they can’t kill all of us!

sharon says:

Leaving Sweden for America is not a great option these days. The catholic church and the extreme right wing religious nuts are taking over the dialog in this country. It is becoming a dangerous country for women, and when you have someone like Ayatollah Santorum and Bishop Romney being considered as serious candidates, can Sharia (by any other name) be far behind? Organized religion, with its paternalistic ethos, its anti-science credo, and other primitive beliefs will be the factor in ending western civilization.

    Sharon is like one of the politically correct leftists in Sweden that protects the religious fanatics of Islam. She sounds like her hatred of conservative value people in the US has her wrapped up in stupidity. The people she vilifies as well as the Catholic church are demanding the freedom and sanctity of life along with the religious freedoms of conscience be recognized by the Communist leaning and Socialists currently running the American administration. She is probably an atheistic goon trying to destroy the fabric of our nation. She and her ilk are representative of what is wrong in both Sweden and the US politically. She should hope the Islamofascists dont take over here as she will probably be the first one to be stoned to death under their Sharia. Welcome to Dearborn Sharon.

    Eurobaby says:

     1) Romney is a Mormon. 2) Santorum advocates life not death (no, I’m not Catholic) and to mock him is intolerant. So it’s the right who would usher in Sharia law? You’re obvious prejudiced against paternalism, men, organized religion -and how you could fabricate an ‘anti-science’ /Christian bias -is again bewildering. Are you ignorant of the fact that it was the Christian (Catholic and Protestant) church who established many of the greatest learning institutions on earth?
     I am hoping you are either extremely young or their is some impairment here whose door we can lay the blame for this blabber.
    Again, this twisted mentality, especially in this case,  is so profound, I am seriously wondering if it is an actual ‘brain-disorder’ we are dealing with here.

    Jewmanchu says:

    This is absolutely ridiculous. As an American Jew I can tell you that there is ZERO percent chance of being persecuted by or even inside a Catholic Church in America. You can’t get more inoffensive than Santorum or Romney– are you seriously saying that they pose a physical threat to women? At the absolute anti-choice, pro-life worst, the most anyone would ever do to a woman, if they had their legislative way, is not let her get an abortion, and since that will never happen, they in reality just merely pass a judgement of pity on a woman who decided to, and that is a fact. In Muslim countries (and now in Canada and Sweden), there are honor killings and rape. To conflate Christianity and Islam is completely absurd.

      Women are the victims of violence every day, much of it encouraged by religious fundamentalists. You think not getting an abortion is not a total invasion of a woman’s personhood? And dangerous in case of a medical issue, with only a Catholic hospital in town? (Catholic hospitals have been buying up the secular ones.) You sir are part of the problem.

    Thank you, Sharon, for noting that physical and psychological violence against women doesn’t only occur in exotic lands abroad. It’s rampant in America, in households, workplaces, and anywhere the fundamentalists can write laws to send them backwards in time.

Sally says:

Sharon, take a breath. The country is governed mostly be moderates. The fringes- both far left and far right- get undue attention by the mainstream media. I could make just as hysterical a case for the far left ideology taking over. But I don’t believe that the fringes of either side will sway the majority in the middle. And if you really believe that it is better for a Jew to stay in Sweden, rather than come to America, that is beyond sad.

    DisposableWorker says:

    Leave to where? If you are not orthodox; Israel won’t have you. The US isn’t taking any working class Jews from Scandinavia ,now and neither are the EU nations. That leaves Canada and Australia if you can make the hard requirements. The Check Republic is taking us; but that will end soon. It really is like the old days. The high born Jews won’t accept us and everybody else wants to kill us because of the faults in those who won’t accept us.
    I also understand a previous commenter’s statement about national loyalties. Being an American is very important to me. I see this as the best place on earth. My family has been here since the late nineteenth century. Why should I be forced to leave? If you go on the track that everybody has to go home; then you have to roll back how far?
    And as far as this Mayor; it is typical of collectivist cowards. They can’t bring themselves to visit evil upon us daily themselves; so they import people sympathetic to their hate and use them as surrogate muggers.

Scary, but important to take in. This piece makes me think of the subject of a mystery novel Return of the Dancing Master, which deals with the aftermath of WWII and the Holocaust. In Sweden of all places, I thought, when I was first getting into the story. The author, Henning Mankell always has his finger on the pulse of his home country’s political situation, his fiction a vehicle to address socioeconomic problems and the likes. When fiction and reality come to meet we really need to watch our backs.

helenika1 says:

Sweden has lost its country to arab muslims.  The Jews of Sweden should leave now before it is too late.  A repeat of history is in the works, but this time we need not be the meek lamb going to slaughter.  We need to band together and protect our own.  We need to accept them in the US or Israel or wherever they chose to go.  The community is not large enough to cause a burden to any country, but the safety of these people are paramount. 

You people telling the Jews of Malmo to simply pick up and leave are not thinking about things from their point of view.  They have most likely lived in the city their entire life, as have their parents, and maybe even their grandparents. It is their city as much as anyone else, and they are most likely not willing to just pick up and leave their lives. If they do leave, it seems much more likely that they will head to Stockholm or some other safer Swedish city. The Jews of Malmo are Swedes through and through. They speak Swedish, they know all aspects of Swedish culture, and they likely have a good deal of loyalty to Sweden, especially over the United States or israel where you are telling them to go. It is not easy to simply learn a second language (English or hebrew, depending on where you people are telling them to go), find a whole new home, find brand new jobs, and all the difficult things that come with immigrating to a new nation.

    Umish Katani says:

    true,, but learning another language is better than having to say kaddish

    Suzy Lenkowsky says:

    That’s what the Jews in Germany in the 1930’s thought…….German first , Jewish second. How’d THAT work out ?

Alfred Neuman says:

This is just another example of of the “new antiSemitism”,  irrational hatred of Jews now fashionably cloaked in Sweden in “antiIsrael” or “antiZionist” covers. This jerk bigot mayor Reepalu personifies the problem–arrogantly assuming that everyone shares his twisted view of Mideast politics, he rails against “Zionism” and Israel’s policies, poorly informed yet highly opinionated.

  The most telling fact regarding racists bigots like Reepalu is their utter disregard of all the Islamofascist violence in Sweden, the Mideast, and indeed worldwide.  If he and his Leftist friends are really so concerned about “human rights, why aren’t they calling for boycotts of Syria instead, obviously a country in the business of mass murder of their own citizens.

  Hypocrites like Reepalu are so transparent and obvious when one considers the facts on the ground, including Israel’s standing as the ONLY country in the whole Mideast which actually DOES respect human rights. So Reepalu’s attempts to cloak his racist hatred of Jews behind some lame Leftist dishonest interpretation of Realpolitik in the Mideast shows him to be not only the transparent bigot that he is, but also a moron.

herbcaen says:

malmo is palestine

The whole things is totally pathetic. When the day will change. I am just waiting for those days. Welcoming you to the unique video on life

Malmo is a city that has been taken over by Muslims and their evil culture of death and hatred. The sooner the Swedes recognize that evil and expunge it the better off they will be. It is a religion of intolerance unlike all the others in the world and uses hate to destroy all others. They are a disgusting and unholy source of evil in the world.  Europe is waking up to that fact now but it may be too late for some of the countries when there are so many of the cockroaches. It is not the people, but rather the religious practices preached by their imams and other leaders. 

    Umish Katani says:

    wont happen, swedes are spineless and too pacifistic i.e cowards, to take action

      Hitchghost says:

      As a Swede, I can only confirm this. I’m not Jewish but I’m still planning to leave the country. The Swedes will not fight, and most won’t even leave, they will just stay and be subjugated. I guess I’m a coward too, for running, but since I’m a Swede, that kind of proves my point.

    ‘evil culture of death and hatred’ – are you talking about the Zionists? Racist much?

      Lelol Kek Wright says:

      That’s the problem you idiot liberal.
      It’s both the jews and muslims fault, but fuck muslims 1st place

CitizenWhy says:

The real issue here is violence, not politics. Innocent people are being attacked – I don’t care whether they are Jewish or not – and the city fails to protect them or to have a process for training/educating young people to respect Swedish values, including the right of every citizen to go unmolested.

This is not about Israel. It’s about a city that tolerates violence by some citizens against other citizens. Barbarous.

When is everyone going to realize that in order to beat back the muslium infadals you are going to have to use the same tactics as your enemy . The government of no country will help due to the fact that they also are afraid of the organizations and liberial tyrants labeling them racist and islamophobes as well. You see that is what they do they kill and terrorize and when people speak out then the terrorist clean-up crew known as cair and others preach that islam is a religion of peace and you can’t label all of islam as killers when in fact they are all either killers or money men or supporters of killers as well as the teachers of the killers so BEWARE OF THE WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING. we need  to band together and fight back.  It may take a while but if the fight keeps going and starts showing positive strides then others will stand up and then it will only get bigger. You have to make sacrifices in order to keep you country and i know for a fact if people don’t start FIGHTING NOW then all is lost and we will all be under one world religion . Then we will see how great Islam really is, Especially to all you liberial and feminist women who had fought sooo hard for them.( Enjoy your Burka’s )

PracticalHonesty says:

Please, everyone, remember Raoul Wallenberg: the Swedish diplomat that rescued many thousands of Jews from Nazi-occupied Hungary.  Don’t give up on Sweden.  Let’s come up with practical solutions:

(1) Obviously, Sweden has allowed too many of certain types of immigrants to enter too quickly, far more than it can integrate/assimilate.  The question is why? 

As kind, generous, and advanced as Sweden’s socioeconomic system is, I suspect the answer is not simply cultural “kindness.”  Could it be that the native Swedish birthrate is too low for Sweden to sustain itself without “importing” immigrants?

If that is the underlying motive, obviously Sweden can try public awareness campaigns to motivate its native citizens to have larger families.  And with regard to “importing” immigrants, it MUST also be much more selective about whom it allows to enter!

Please just think in simple, practical, real-world terms for a moment:

(A) Imagine ANY country that is truly wealthy, VERY socioeconomically advanced (where the wealth is generally so evenly shared that it is virtually a ONE-class system), VERY literate/educated, and whose culture GREATLY emphasizes consensus and equality in EVERY way — financial, gender, sexual, political, etc. — (i.e., “lagom” and “jämlikhet,” look those two words up on Google), AND that is also very secular.

(B) Now imagine that suddenly that country has a large number of immigrants living there who by comparison to the native population are: extremely poor, extremely uneducated, extremely religious, extremely unsophisticated, and physically look extremely different from the natives.  In addition, the immigrants are possibly arriving with all sorts of psychological problems and behavioral dysfunctions caused by their relatively deprived and traumatic pasts.

Now I am so very sorry to state the “inconvenient truth” that is so obvious, but the two factors above (A+B) are a STUPID and VOLATILE combination for both the natives and the immigrants!

It doesn’t matter whether the sophisticated wealthy country was motivated by kindness or self-interest, or both; the simple fact is that it took in too many immigrants that are either unwilling or unable to integrate into mainstream Swedish society and culture.

Sweden can now stop or greatly slow the “importing” of more such people.  But to solve its problems, Sweden must come up with some successful methods for INTEGRATING the immigrants that are already there.

If Sweden does NOT integrate/assimilate those immigrants that are already there, the sad irony is that Sweden will destroy its own beloved and beautiful culture of equality — because those un-assimilated immigrants will create a semi-permanent underclass whose inequality will reproduce (literally) for generations, ESPECIALLY because the immigrants have a higher birth rate than the native Swedes.

Come on Sweden, you’re too intelligent to allow this obvious problem to continue unsolved!!!!!

    KKRDB says:

    A good understanding by you,but please do not blame them as innocents,poor and uneducated…

    Sorry,do we not know of the thousands of  the highly educated muslims who equally

    have been at the for front creating dissent & mayham

    An example: A criminal in the US when caught always blames their parents for their

    woes.When in effect it is in their charateristic …

    The majority of ultra islamists are like them & are spreading like wild fire,unless

    those European countries decide to stop letting entries any further.

    And this is the TIP OF THE ICEBERG.

    Just wait awhile.

    You’re right. All white countries that face a birth rate problem should follow the Australian model, which is to encourage north Asian immigration. North Asian Students commit less crime and perform better on IQ as well as scholastic achievement tests than do the native population.

How odd……..It is not so much Jews in Malmo wearing a yarmulka or whatever ………the FACT is

even the swedish police are afaired to enter Malmo for FEAR by the great number of Muslims

This does not come as a surprise..I will have to read the whole article enabling me

to deduce.However the excuse by the mayor suffering from whatever.

Lies & more lies.

This  has been perpetrated in many Eropean countries..

Sweden among others.

In the UK they seem to cope,but not achieving their desire

i.e The overly political correctness gone wild.

As for the Jews(i say it without bias) Behave and never cause problems wherever they reside.

Those muslims are almost taking the countries over.

Well, by giving an open door facility over the decades are now feeling the blunder they made.

KKRDB says:

Just read the most important aspect.I know most of you will disagree with me,but were I

in the place of the Jew who has his business in the most dreadful area of Malmo,

I suggest he move over to another district.

Oh I know that would be giving in to the scumbags as I said in my post above

if the Swedish police are reluctant to go  in there,what chance is there for a Jew

trying to live peacefully managing his business among THE BIGGEST TROUBLE


There’s also UK:Guess what>

Britain: Muslim ‘Cultural Sensitivity’ Runs Amok.
The largest university in London plans to impose a ban on the sale of alcohol on campus to accommodate the “cultural sensitivity” of its Muslim students.
Far from thanking the person for his multiculturalism, , Muslims say they are “offended” by his “generalizing about their beliefs.”THATS ALL FOLKS…EUROPE HAS SOLD ITS SOUL TO THE DEVIL..

Whereas Sweden presents a decidedly scary picture with its over hatred of all things Jewish, so does Norway!
I left Norway over 40 years ago and, in retrospect, relative to this issue, I am glad I did!  I still read several Norwegian newspapers on line every day and am shocked at the blatant antisemitism being blared out in all the media there.  As well, there is now a substantial muslim influence there, promoted by migrants from Arab countries.  The Christian population in Norway now openly (to the extent they can have access to the media and be heard) state their fear of the country actually falling under muslim control as the government declared Norway a neutral (non Christian) country only a cpl weeks ago, thus feeding the muslim beast even further.  Sad to say, this is no longer the country I remember growing up in!
P. S.  I simply refuse to capitalize the word “muslim” in case anyone wonders.  Hence to Cap in the name of this evil ideology.  

Karma is a BITCH! As Israel is busy deporting and mistreating Africans, the same is happening to jews elsewhere. Once again i ask the question, may be its about time everyone went back to their country no? All Jews back to Israel! All Africans back to Africa and all Europeans back to Europe!

An Infidel says:

“…immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East?”

Please, don’t be PC. Call them Muslims, because that is the group responsible for the violence and hostility.

Samir Halabi says:

The last time I visited an elderly uncle in Malmo I was accompanied by my protector/bodyguard military trained Canine weighing around 100kg and standing to his shoulders just under 90c/m. I was name called by some North-African Arabs, I motioned to my dog to go up to them, he bared his teeth at them as a warning, I then told them in Arabic shut-the-f–k up or you will be shut up pemanently. This is the only way to deal with those Jew-hating slime.

Samir Halabi says:

As Sweden loves the Muslims so much that they even have the “Chutzpah” to state that the bombing of the Jewish community centre in Malmo wasn’t a hate crime, well what the f–k was it then. Let Sweden go and f–k itself together with those Muslim Jew-hating slime. I wouldn’t want to dirty my hands on those Muslims when or if I’m attacked by them, I just let my two massive military trained dogs loose on them and hope they do their worst to those disgusting pieces of so called humanity.


    Anon Ymous says:

    Mansoor Habib is the typical Muslim. He loves Hitler and wants the Jews annihilated. I bet your leftist allies are so proud.

Samir Halabi says:

While on my way to visit an elderly uncle In Malmo who’s been living there since he fled Syria in the 1950, I was attacked by two North-African Arabs, however they never saw what knocked them to the ground so quickly, it was my travelling companion, a massive Black Russian military trained dog, he weighs around 70 kg and stands to his shoulders at a fraction under 84c/m. Those thugs got the fright of their lives, and i didn’t even have to raise a finger at them. The police arrived rather swiftly and hustle them away.
Once on the ground if they would have moved, they would have been dead. My bodyguard just watched them, if they did make a sudden move he growled, that was enough for them to remain perfectly still.

Samir Halabi says:

To FarisA.
You talk about being no eqivalent in the Arab world of any person who wanted to annihilate all the Jews of the Arab world including The British Mandate of Palestine. Well you don’t have too far. Haj al-Amin al-Husseini the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem from 1921 -45. spent from December 1941 till the end of the war in Berlin Nazi-Germany as guest of Adolf Hitler. He visited several death camps where they were murdering Jews a daily industrial basis, he admired the German technology in evacuating so many Jews (to death) he decided that he wanted to use the same method in dispatching all the Jews from the Miiddle-East & North-Africa not forgetting the Jews of Palestine to death. He was the uncle of the late Yasser Arafat. Did you know that we the of the Arab-World owned real-estate which was confiscated from us six times the size of the present State of Israel today. All our bank accounts were frozen, Jewellery and precious stones stolen from us, Gold bangles and rings ripped from the wrists and fingers of our Mothers. Bangles ripped from the arms of babes in arms. We the jews of the Arab world outnumbered the arab refugees of post British Palestine by two to one. In the late 1940s there was 1,000,000 Jews throughout the Middle-east and North Africa, today barely 6,000 remain mostly in Morocco and Tunisia, that is what you call ethnic cleansing and not the other way around.

hashimoto says:

Are you always a fucking idiot?

Racism begets racism, Whats happening in Malmö is whats been happening in Palestine for the last 65 years.

    Anon Ymous says:

    “Palestinians” are illegal colonists from Arabia who stole the West Bank from the Jews. They are usurpers and imperialists trying to re-create the Abbasid Caliphate. The so-called “West Bank” belongs to Jews. It is part of Judah. Hebron is the birthplace of King David. The so-called “Palestinians” are the most evil and racist people in the world.

The mayor is one man. He has his way of seeing the world. He is resigning office.

There are 500,000 Muslims in Sweden, about five percent of the population. A tiny fraction participate in violence against Jews. I have lived in Malmö on and off for six years now and have yet to witness such violence. No doubt it occurs. So does random shooting of Muslims and other immigrants by armed madmen.

Cross-cultural disputes and violence occur everywhere in the world. No one condones them. But they happen. Unfortunately in Malmö, as so often in history, the Jews are caught in the middle.

Malmö’s solution — and I think it is a good one, expressed in a report due out March 1, 2013 — is to really work at integrating the Muslims rather than just warehousing them. Most Malmö Muslims are honest, hardworking, and responsible, but too often they run into a wall of indifference or bigotry when applying for jobs, entry into the better schools, even respect on board buses. The vast majority of Swedes in Malmö are decent folk who don’t engage in such nonsense, but just enough do to keep angers on a low boil. The emergence of the neo-Nazi, anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats party in the surrounding agrarian setting is a reminder that violence runs both ways. It has to be curbed.

In a sense, Malmö is enduring the same pressures and outbreaks that have characterized American history for 250 years, each time new immigrants came to our shores — only speeded up, and magnified, because the city became home to nearly 40 percent immigrants (mostly from Eastern and Northern Europe, but also Africa, parts of the Far East, the Middle East, and Latin America) in just three decades. Things will work themselves out if Malmö’s people of goodwill, of all persuasions, keep the pressure on to fight violence and hate, and to create opportunity and reward for all who seek them. It’s that simple…but because we prefer to live with our stereotypes, also that hard.

    Anon Ymous says:

    Sure, only a fraction of Muslims commit violence. But what about their beliefs? I bet 99% of Swedish Muslims hate Jews and want them exterminated, even if they don’t commit violent acts themselves. This type of attitude is how the Holocaust occurred.

      Amos, I bet you’re wrong. By about 98%. But I can tell you that 5% of Swedish voters feel exactly the same regarding Muslims: the Sweden Democrats, who favor exporting Muslim immigrants to nations where they will be arrested, beaten, raped, and summarily executed on return. It’s akin to the American policy of rendition, where our CIA sends people suspected of whatever to be tortured and/or killed.

      You’re right, that’s how Holocausts occur.

      BTW, about 10% of Americans (I am being generous, it could be more) also hate Jews. You wish to condemn all the American people for the few, also?

Anon Ymous says:

These Islamonazi trash need to be exterminated.

Anon Ymous says:

Looks like Sweden needs a Breivik.

Maybe you can help me. I want to know a specific term for a common situation int he US. And I want advice on how to deal with it. I know there must be a specific term besides Jew-hater or “antisemetic”. I live in the US, I consider myself liberal- but time and time again whenever I get involved with any kind of social justice group they always have this kind of “test”. They throw out the problems in Israel and watch the group for reactions. There is a very hateful culture in the left in America, and obvious other white-christian dominated places(like Europe Sweden here) that puts rejecting or condemning Israel as some kind of purity test. They are obviously trying to play the part of a intelligent and enlightened people but unwilling to accept and uncomfortable with the emotional weight of acknowledging they have any advantages and privileges and are putting their hatred at the idea of being just onto the Jews- because it is not actually having compassion because of the conflict. It’s re-appropriating their entitlement, bigotry and racism- but I know they think it’s okay because Israel supposedly run by white “Zionists”< a word that is so loaded and used so incorrectly in "liberal" hands the only meaning it shares from hateful hysterical person to person is that it has something to do with Jews and Israel. But is there a word for that? It happens so much. It's really frustrating for me- because in the US the ACLU and other civil liberty-protecting groups have ALWAYS had strong support and help starting up from Jewish people and I know Jewish women like me have always had a hand in social justice in America going back to abolition and womens suffrage. I don't feel safe or respected in these groups that are supposed to be ABOUT securing rights and respect for all people. My family is very private about being Jewish and I don't get a lot of positive advice from my family.- how do I deal with this?

Of course the Swedes hate Israel: What this article is NOT saying is that a Swedish general (who has probably been bribed by Israeli interests) has spoken in favor of Swedish troops being sent to overseas to fight in NATO’s current wars – a stance that has NOT gone down well in Sweden which has generally taken a non-interventionist position in regards to international conflicts. Now, I know this website’s writers love to blame the Muslims for all their problems, but from the point of view of the Swedes, having to choose between The North Africans and Arabs on one side and the Israelis on the other is easy: The Arabs are a good source of cheap labor, cause less crime when compared to the eastern european immigrants and the third and fourth generations of them have already assimilated well. Once the instability in the Middle East which is caused by the US and Israel passes, most of the unassimilated Arabs WILL go back – and unlike the Jews, they won’t bribe Swedish politicians and generals to send their troops of to die n the Middle East in wars that benefit only the US multinationals and Israel!!!!

Bud Smith says:

Yes, blaming Jews for all the “multiculturalism” is absolutely baseless.

Samir Halabi says:

I for one wouldn’t put up with all this Muslim Jew-hatred in Sweden. Why have Muslims come to Sweden in the first place? if they have come for a better life and away from the sermons of fanatically inspired Mullahs then OK!! but why pick on the Swedish Jews, they are Swedish nationals and have nothing to do with the politics of the Middle-East.
I can assure you that if I was living in Sweden today I wouldn’t tolerate these cowardly attacks on the very small Jewish community of Sweden which numbers around 17,000,
compared to 500,000 Muslims in Sweden today. I would advise many Jewish families to keep ‘Black Russian Terriers’ as protector canines against attack from these savages, because this is the only language I can describe them with. The Black russian terriers when fully grown can in some instances weigh between 65-80kg and be around 75 to over 80c/m to the shoulders. They make admiral guards and protector/bodyguards against attackers and intruders.

Frederick says:

Pity Sweden. Once a haven for refugee from Hitler’s progroms has turned into a nest of hatred produced welfare refugee. Hate is apparently “correct” against Jews because they are law abiding. Lawlessness in the new welfare migrant is acceptable to the Swedish psyche. Shame Sweden once a bastion of democracy sinking under Islamic theocracy.

Obviously this is Jewish news media so has prioritised Jewish issue in Malmo – but is also worth noting that ethnic Swedes have had their fair share of problems with a substantial Arab/North African immigrant influx in last decade.
This is not least due to (a politically motivated) high refugee influx, amongst whom viable skills for a niche advanced economy & the motivation to engage with Sweden are limited, as many immigrants remain focused on the issues that define their displacement

Ole Olaffson says:

Jews in Sweden like Gunnar Heckscher, David Schwarz and Barbara Spectre have been pushing for multiculturalism and wide open immigration from the third world for 50 or more years. Swedish Jews cannot complain of maltreatment from Muslims because their own people were the biggest proponents for letting them into Sweden. You reap what you sew!

Jews are parasitic, amoral vampires on any society they inhabit.

Right. Cause it is clearly all about the jews.

I can say this. If jews were not such hateful, ugly parasites, they would be safer in their cities.

You keep fishing for some positive feedback sweetie – everyone hates the jews lol

Malmo’s mayor Reepalu is an obvious anti-semite .

Sweden’s ‘Damn Jew’ Problem

Wearing a yarmulke is no longer safe in the city of Malmö. The mayor blames the Jews, while other Swedish politicians point to ‘social inequality.’
