“Kippah Walk” in Malmö in solidarity with Jews persecuted in … Malmö

“Kippah Walk” in Malmö in solidarity with Jews persecuted in … Malmö

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.

The situation is so bad that there is gonig to be a “Kippah Walk” in solidarity with the Jews of Malmö, via JPost:

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.

Bonus question:  Will pointing out the truth about Malmö land me on SPLC’s “hate map” along with Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs?

Update:  I just noticed that Danel Greenfields’ Sultan Knish also is on SPLC’s NY hate map.

Just a few more posts on forbidden topics and you, too, can be officially labeled as a hate-filled intolerant “group.”

“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?”

Marauding Jews … when pigs fly.

“Will pointing out the truth about Malmö land me on SPLC’s “hate map…?”

It’s difficult to imagine that you (and your readers) aren’t already there. It’s a good day that finds it so. Keep the bright light shining.

Whatever good the SPLC may have done fighting the Klan in the 1960s is long past. These days, I think landing on Morris Dees’ Enemies List is a “badge of honor”.

    That TV movie made about him a few years ago clearly went to his head. Now, having no more real villains to fight, he’s turned into Don Quixote, imagining every windmill to be an enemy. (Except that the SPLC willfully declines to fight Islam.)

    He reminds me of that excellent Twilight Zone episode, “On Thursday We Leave For Home,” about the rocket ship captain who stays behind on the asteroid when the rescue party shows up…because he can’t abide not being needed anymore. Pathetic.

      Speaking of space flight and Twilight Zone, today’s Western apologists of Islamist exremeism are like willing passengers boarding the alien spaceship on, “To Serve Man.”

      Dees was a self aggrandizing con man long before the movie.

      One of the cases that lead to that movie about Dees bravely confronting the Klan actually netted the victim’s survivors a little under $52K. It turns out the Klan was almost judgement proof. The ever shameless SPLC touted the $7 million verdict along with a photo of the corpse in its relentless fundraising and collected a cool $8 million from donors -without ever mentioning almost none of that $7 million award could ever be collected by the truly aggrieved.

      The SPLC is among the wealthiest of civil rights organization. It is also the most aggressive in its fund raising. It is always claiming poverty in its solicitations. Inflate the hate is all about replacing the original donor base with a new generation of dupes who have a different set of boogie-men.

“…but that it is happening in tolerant Sweden says a lot.”

Yes, it does, and what it says is that tolerance per se is objectively pro-fascist, just as pacifism is. Equal tolerance for both evil and good is not just morally foolish; it leads to the eradication of good.

If you’re NOT on SPLC’s Hate List, then you’re not being effective.

Sweden is not tolerant. It routinely treats immigrants as second or even third-class citizens. It has an active white supremacy movement. Its leftists are interested only in preserving the financial security of the state.

Professor: Methinks you are angling to get put on SPLCs hate map. Good luck in that. It would be a badge of honor for you.

I’m pretty sure the SPLC includes any belief within Jews or Jewish groups that Palestine doesn’t have legitimate land claims as a “hate” characteristic. Point: It isn’t really a matter of violence or the potential for disruptive action, it has to do with the belief itself. If it is “improper” as defined in progressive ideology, it is likely labeled as hate.

So it wouldn’t be a stretch to believe the SPLC would equally view unacceptable (improper opinions) peaceful actions as incitements to violence.

Baruk Hashem Israel is forever!
Sweden once was a tolerant country in the 1980s when I was there. However this is what has happened:
“…In July 2005, a study from the Swedish Crime Prevention Council, Brå, revealed that rapists in that country were four times more likely to be foreign born.

In addition, the report revealed that “resident aliens” from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia make up the largest number of rapists.

The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just above 20 years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six times as common today as they were a generation ago…”
“…Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased as well. Malmö, set to become the first Scandinavian city with a Muslim majority within a decade or two, has nine times as many reported robberies per capita as Copenhagen, Denmark.

Crime is rampant in the growing ghettos of Malmö. Unemployment rates top 50 percent and in 2005, police figures recorded that 68 percent of all rapes that year were committed by Third Worlders, mainly Muslims, most of whom were second and third generation immigrants…”

So, you see, Islamists spread their hate,anger, and acting out wherever they go. I’m sure King Carl Gustave regrets the immigration policies in place that brought so many Islamists into Sweden, now it is too late. The native Swedes are a minority in their own country. Just like soon we Americans will be a minority as Obama opens the immigration floodgates. 91 million Muslims in America and planeloads arriving every week.

    If you read the transcripts of Julian Assange’s alleged rape testimonials you will see that just plain boring bad sex is included .

    Whilst many persons have thought momentarily there ought to be a law against bad sex – itis the law in Sweden.

We need a counter organization to the SPLC, perhaps something like the National Prosperity and Tolerance Group

    The proper way to counter emotional appeals is with reason. Neither is effective without proper framing or presentation.

    What would a counter organization be and what could it accomplish? It’s my opinion that the SPLC serves almost not function any more except to satisfy its partisan backers. It rarely uncovers new information of significance and rarely provides meaningful analysis that would pass, say, peer review (that being a HUGE progressive cry for climate science). Perhaps there should be an organization like the early SPLC. Then we wouldn’t need to call for a “counter” group as they would be essentially fair and honest.

Jewish organizations, political activists, and individuals have been the strongest supporters for open borders in Sweden. I will waste no tears for hypocrites.

I note how the SPLC hate map page has its “Who we are” link right next to a picture of helmet wearing thugs. I’m assuming this is typical leftist projection.

How long before SPLC’s Hate Map is available as an iPhone app, adjunct to your GPS?

[…] At Legal Insurrection, Professor Jacobson wonders if noting Islamic anti-semitism in Malmo will get him condemned as a hate group by the SPLC, along with me, Pamela Geller and Casa D’Ice signs. […]
