Sweden appreciates terrorism in Tel Aviv

Yesterday there was a disgraceful racist attack on civilian Jews in Tel Aviv.

The attack was carried out by Arabs from “Palestine”.

That racist attack has been harshly condemned by the leaders of the free world, who without hesitation called it a terrorist attack.

Because in the free world, they understand that if you condemn Islamists who attack civilians in Paris, but you do not condemn Islamists who attack civilians in Tel Aviv, that makes you an out and out anti-Semite — a racist of the worst order.

There is one exception to the chorus of condemnation from the free and democratic world.

That exception is Sweden. Less than 24 hours after taking office in 2014, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström recognised “Palestine” and immediately multiplied the billions of kronor that Sweden takes from its own pensioners and schoolchildren and hospitals, redirecting the funding to “Palestine”.

While the entire free and democratic world has harshly condemned the extrajudicial killing – the racist murder – of civilian Jews in Tel Aviv yesterday, Sweden’s Margot Wallström has still signally refused to utter a word of condemnation. She is enamoured with Islamic terrorists, and has no time for Jews. Because Jews.

While Ramallah and Gaza City erupted in celebrations to welcome the murders, Margot Wallström, whose recognition of “Palestine” was aimed at encouraging a civic society there, remained silent.

She is silent on the wanton racist murder of Jews, and she is silent on the joyous celebrations in “Palestine” in support of the racist murders.

She is now angling for a seat on the UN Security Council. And is using millions in Swedish bribes to secure this seat.

If overseas public opinion does not force Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven to immediately sack this disgrace of a Foreign Minister, Sweden is headed toward a very dark place indeed.

And yes, it has to be overseas public opinion – the left-wing Swedish government has absolutely no regard for domestic Swedish opinion.

I wrote above that with Sweden on the Security Council this country will be headed toward a very dark place. True. But so will the rest of the democratic world – because with Margot Wallström in the driving seat there are no limits to the mayhem and wholesale massacres she is prepared to condone, finance, and aid when her power is multiplied.

If you read this and shake your head in despair and sympathy, I’m afraid you’re tacitly part of the problem. You – yes YOU – need to pressure your own political leaders to in turn pressure the Swedish PM to rid himself of the outrageous social, financial and political liability that is Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström.


Otherwise you too will be counting the cost in the years to come.
