Blue And White

Hey friends,

Long time no see.

You see, I’ve been very busy.

After much consideration I decided to leave the country I was born in.
The country I grew up in.
That I loved.
The country that gave me a very good start in life.

And a feeling of being very safe.


This once such a blooming place on earth.

Now so lost.

If you’ve been following the reports about what’s happening in Sweden you know what I’m talking about.
If you are – just like I am – a political news junkie, you can only imagine how frustrating it is to live in such a country.

It sucks the energy out of you.

When I – just a simple and caring man – began writing about Israel all those years ago, to try to wake the Swedes up to a new reality regarding Israel, I suddenly found myself trying to wake them up regarding Sweden.

But the heads were busy getting deeper and deeper buried in the sand.

The people of Sweden have been brainwashed for decades.
Not only regarding Israel, but also regarding their own country.

The journalists haven’t been JOURNALISTS for years and years, but rather they’ve been busy trying to educate people according to the journalists’ own political views and their own agenda.

The political leadership have gone from bad to worse.

I saw no future in Sweden.
Quite frankly Sweden scares me.
The country that I loved so much.
I don’t recognize it anymore.
I feel totally disconnected to this New Sweden.

So I chose to leave.

Thankfully I had an easy way out: my other homeland Finland.

Sweden and Finland – geographically so close, but intellectually, and on so many levels, miles and miles apart.

The Finns have fought for their country.
They don’t take it for granted.
The Finnish people know that everything can be lost, so one must take care of what one’s got.

Much like the Israelis, the Finns are living in reality.
The Swedes are living in la la land.

My ultimate goal is still to live permanently in Israel one day, but until then you know where to find me.

Oh, and indeed: blue and white go so well together!
