NY TIMES ARTICLE: 51% Of Sweden’s Anti-Semitic Incidents Caused By “Muslim Extremists,” 25% By “Left-Wing Extremists,” 5% By “Right-Wing Extremists”

Sweden’s pathetically weak leaders are too cowardly to confront the threat of Islamist anti-Semitism, leading to a horrifying rise of violence and attacks against Sweden’s Jewish population.

A New York Times article titled “The Uncomfortable Truth About Swedish Anti-Semitism,” discusses something that the elites and Sweden’s so-called ‘leaders’ are far too cowardly to discuss.

The rise of anti-Semitism caused by Muslim extremists.

Here’s an excerpt of the article by Swedish writer Paulina Neuding:

“This past Saturday, a Hanukkah party at a synagogue in Goteborg, Sweden, was abruptly interrupted by Molotov cocktails. They were hurled by a gang of men in masks at the Jews, mostly teenagers, who had gathered to celebrate the holiday.

Two days later, two fire bombs were discovered outside the Jewish burial chapel in the southern Swedish city of Malmo.

Who knows what tomorrow may bring?

For Sweden’s 18,000 Jews, sadly, none of this comes as a surprise. They are by now used to anti-Semitic threats and attacks — especially during periods of unrest in the Middle East, which provide cover to those whose actual goal has little to do with Israel and much to do with harming Jews.”

Horrifically, there have even been outright calls for killing:

“Both of these recent attacks followed days of incitement against Jews. Last Friday, 200 people protested in Malmo against President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The protesters called for an intifada and promised “we will shoot the Jews.” A day later, during a demonstration in Stockholm, a speaker called Jews “apes and pigs.” There were promises of martyrdom.”

The article also notes that the only Hasidic Rabbi in the Swedish city of Malmo has been the “victim of more than 100 incidents of hostility ranging from hate speech to physical assault.”

Things have become so bad that Synagogues in the country have airport-style security checks, police with machine guns now guard many Jewish schools, and a kindergarten in Malmo for Jewish children features bulletproof glass.

Many Jewish teachers hide their identity, with one teacher saying he was told by a student: “We’re going to kill all Jews.” He said other students yell “yahoud,” the Arabic word for Jew, at him.”‘

Stats show the truth:

The report notes that “Historically, anti-Semitism in Sweden could mainly be attributed to right-wing extremists. While this problem persists, a study from 2013 showed that 51 percent of anti-Semitic incidents in Sweden were attributed to Muslim extremists. Only 5 percent were carried out by right-wing extremists; 25 percent were perpetrated by left-wing extremists.”

However, Sweden’s politicians don’t have the courage to speak out against Muslim extremists, so they remain silent. In their pathetic cowardice, they often blame Israel or U.S. foreign policy when attacks against Jewish people take place, which is a total disgrace.

Unfortunately, the attitude of Sweden’s gutless fool leaders is repeated across much of the Western world, where many politicians are quick to call out right-wing extremism, but are totally silent on Muslim extremism, allowing the problem to grow and fester and create a rising threat.

This refusal to speak the truth makes the problem even worse:

“In 2015, Sweden was second only to Germany in the number of Syrian refugees it welcomed. Yet the three men arrested in the Molotov cocktail attack were newly arrived immigrants, two Syrians and a Palestinian.”

Consider the video below. While it looks like a rally you would see in the middle east, it was actually in Malmo Sweden:

This is the consequence of weakness and political correctness. Rather than reduce hate, political correctness empowers hate and makes it even worse.

The Western world must wake up and start standing up for our values. If we follow the path of Sweden, our own society will become more dangerous, more anti-Semitic, and even more at risk from Islamist extremism.

That must not be allowed to happen.
