Sweden’s Government Funds Anti-Semitism
Many organizations that spread implicit anti-Semitism receive no attention from either the Swedish media or the so-called “anti-racist” movements. The group Youth Against Settlements (YAS), for example, which has its base in Hebron, visits high schools and holds lectures in Sweden, and is conducting a campaign against the Jewish residents of Hebron.
That public high schools received visits from an organization that demonizes Israel and makes false and outrageous anti-Semitic statements should, at the very least, have been investigated by the media. But the Swedish media ignored the defamation and neither verified nor repudiated the information. Instead, the two individuals who represented YAS and were touring in Sweden, Zleikha Al Muhtaseb and Anas Amro, were described as “peace activists”.
YAS was invited to hold lectures for public institutions in Sweden; and the foreign minister of Sweden, Margot Wallström, met with YAS when she visited Ramallah in December 2016. As such, YAS became an organization legitimized by the Swedish government.
Another organization that clearly has anti-Semitic tendencies and is supported by public institutions in Sweden is Group 194.
Group 194, a pro-Palestinian political organization, has close ties with the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), a terrorist group that has murdered at least 36 Israeli civilians, and which supports the Assad regime in Syria. That is why it seemed strange when the Labor and Social Services Board of the Municipality of Malmö, on October 27, 2017 granted 132,000 kronor (roughly $15,000) to Group 194 and two other organizations, so they could patrol the suburb of Rosengård at night, supposedly in order to make the area safe. For full disclosure, the author, as a member of this municipal board, and a few of his fellow party colleagues voted against this proposal; the majority of the board, however, supported it. Today, it is a fact that pro-Palestinian organizations are funded by the municipality of Malmö.
Group 194 supports violent extremism. On their Facebook page one can see pictures of minors holding Kalashnikov rifles. There also have been anti-Semitic images on Group 194′s Facebook page, such as a defamatory cartoon portraying a Jew drinking blood and eating a child. Why does the municipality of Malmö support such an organization with taxpayers’ money? The reason is that Malmö and Sweden have serious problems in dealing with imported, Middle Eastern anti-Semitism. When Swedish politicians — because of ignorance or tolerance for intolerant behavior — accept anti-Semitism in an important Swedish city as Malmö, that is an unacceptable problem. It is also unacceptable when a majority of local politicians in Sweden’s third-largest city support taxpayer money going to a pro-Palestinian organization that has made anti-Semitic statements and promoted violence. It reveals that too many Swedish politicians apparently cannot even recognize what anti-Semitism looks like and when and how to take a stand against it. What are Swedish Jews to think? Group 194 was also given an award by the municipality of Malmö at a gala it organized, and has received contributions from various municipalities in Sweden for several years, including Sundsvall and Landskrona, where the municipality has a close cooperation with Group 194. When Landskrona had its official summer party, one of its organizers was Group 194.
Ship To Gaza is an organization that usually gets a lot of media publicity. When one of its activists, Ferry Saarposhan, stated that Israel’s treatment of Palestinians “is worse than the Holocaust,” the Swedish media stayed silent. The video clip of his statement is posted on the official Facebook page of Ship to Gaza-Sweden, a page that has more than 35,000 “likes”. But no one has yet responded to his slander.
Different factors end up reinforcing each other, as this author has already noted. They create an echo chamber that then leads to a situation where Arab and Muslim anti-Semitism becomes accepted by Swedish authorities. These factors include:
- Large-scale immigration from countries where anti-Semitism is normalized.
- A strong pro-Palestinian engagement among Swedish politicians that has resulted in a totally inaccurate and surreal debate about the Israel-Palestine conflict, in which Israel is unjustly demonized.
- A desire among political parties in Sweden to win the votes of immigrants.
- A Swedish multiculturalism that is so uncritical of foreign cultures that it cannot differentiate between culture and racism.
- A fear of sounding critical of immigration.
- Important Swedish institutions, such as the Church of Sweden, legitimizing anti-Semitism by endorsing the counter-factual Kairos Palestine document.
Today this process has gone so far that many in Sweden seem to have totally internalized this imported, Middle Eastern anti-Semitism and made it an integral part of their ideology.
Today in Sweden, supporting organizations that demonize Israel and spread anti-Semitism is considered completely normal. It is not even the subject of discussion — unless an extreme statement is uttered.
This all goes back to our considerable achievement from a few years ago:
My message is simple: all this described above and much more, this finally blossoming anti-Zionist culture that we had spent so long building up, is what we STAND TO LOSE OVERNIGHT if the Sweden Democrats are allowed to rise in the upcoming September elections.
The recent coordinated arson attacks on cars in Gothenburg, Helsinborg, etc. are prudently being called out as far-right black-ops intended to boost the SD vote at the last-minute (same as the Champs-Elysee false flag in France last year) to boost the FN vote):
The coordinated nature of the attacks made some suspect an attempt by the far right to whip up anti-immigrant sentiment ahead of the election, in which the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats are vying to become the country’s largest political party.
Daniel Riazat, an MP for the Left party, said on Twitter: “I would not be surprised if far right extremists were involved in some way.”
During a concert in Malmö yesterday, the artist Silvana Imam accused the Sweden Democrats or the Nordic Resistance Movement of being behind the car fires in Gothenburg.
The artist told her that she had a friend in Gothenburg who saw that SD people filmed some of the fires. In connection with this, she urged the audience and journalists to reveal who is behind the fires.
This in itself shows how far we have come: back in the 2000s it would have been only us and a few other conspiracy blogs saying stuff like this; now mainstream politicians and celebrities are willing to raise similar suspicions. But it will ALL BE FOR NOTHING if we fail to stop the SD and their shamelessly obtuse Make Sweden Great Again narrative as here presented by Kent Ekeroth (Jew) himself, incidentally one of the earliest names to be included in what is now our Backlash Herders list:
Even now rightists are predictably blaming the arson attacks yet again on “Muslims” and “Third World immigrants” despite such groups having nothing to gain from such attacks, especially not prior to the election when Islamophobia and anti-Third World bigotry are being deliberately played up by the SD in interviews, debates, etc. (even when irrelevant to the issue being discussed).
If you are able to vote in these elections, please make sure you turn up to vote tactically against the SD. If in doubt, just vote SAP – they deserve re-election just for their achievements mentioned above! Whatever you do, do not behave like those letdown US (non-)voters who insisted on “abstaining for the sake of principle” in 2016 but then started complaining as soon as they saw the election results, and have continued complaining about Trump ever since even though they themselves could have stopped him during the election but did not bother to.
Oh, and don’t forget to buy firearms and ammunition if you have not done so already, and if you have done so, buy more if you can afford to. If (God forbid) the SD actually win, firearms will then be all that Swedes have left to realistically fight back with.
