I have written a number of times about the persecution of Jews in the Swedish city of Malmö by Islamists with the connivance of anti-Israeli leftists, including the Mayor:
This Islamist-Leftist coalition manifesting itself in anti-Israeli actions which inevitably turn anti-Semitic isn’t limited to Malmö, but that it is happening in tolerant Sweden says a lot.
Kippah-wearing Jews and non-Jews are expected to march Saturday in Sweden as a sign of solidarity with Malmo’s Jews.
“The idea is to show ourselves and others that we refuse to be afraid or hide our Jewish affiliation,” Fredrik Sieradzki, director of communications for the Jewish community of Malmo, told JTA. He said he expected at least 100 marchers.
Earlier this year, a rabbi from Malmo was physically assaulted.
In 2010, Malmo’s mayor, Ilmar Reepalu, said that a group of Jews in Malmo who were attacked by Swedish Muslims during a peaceful protest in support of Israel brought the violence upon themselves for not distancing themselves from Israel and its actions during the month-long Gaza War in 2008-09.
AP reports that several hundred people marched and that there were no incidents. But the AP report played the same blame game in tying the anti-Semitism to the Israeli invasion of Gaza:
Malmo, which has a large immigrant Muslim community, saw a surge in hate crimes against Jews after Israel’s invasion of Gaza in 2009.
So if Jews attacked Muslims in Europe because of rocket fire from Gaza, would AP and the leftists excuse or minimize the attacks because it was a reaction? That standard only seems to apply when Jews are attacked.
Update: I just noticed that Danel Greenfields’ Sultan Knish also is on SPLC’s NY hate map.
