Sweden – A Burning Issue

Where they burn books, they will ultimately burn people too
Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)

As reported by the Jerusalem Post, Sweden has approved the burning of Torah scrolls outside Israeli embassy in Stockholm.

Sweden has a long history of antisemitism. Although pretending to be neutral in the Second World War, it acted as a major supplier of raw materials for Hitler’s military. Sweden laundered the gold confiscated from Holocaust victims and refused asylum for many refugees, even their neighbors the almost-completely exterminated Norwegian Jews.

Some Swedes even volunteered with the Waffen SS.

A quick search for Sweden’s contribution to the world brings up very little. It seems that Sweden reached the height of its power during the Second Northern War. This was back, way back, in 1658.

A very short blog today. Sweden is not worth my time and effort.
