Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

Hate crimes force Jews out of Malmo

By Karl Ritter ASSOCIATED PRESS

MALMO, Sweden

Marcus Eilenberg is a Swedish Jew whose family roots in Malmo run deep. His paternal grandparents were Holocaust survivors who found shelter in this southern Swedish city in 1945. His wife's parents fled to Sweden from communist Poland in the 1960s.

Now the 32-year-old law firm associate feels the welcome for Jews is running out, and he is moving to Israel with his wife and two children in May. He says he knows at least 15 other Jews who are leaving for a similar reason.

That reason, he says, is a rise in hate crimes against Jews in Malmo, and a sense that local authorities have little desire to deal with a problem that has exposed a crack in Sweden's image as a bastion of tolerance and a haven for distressed ethnic groups.

Anti-Semitic crimes in Europe have usually been associated with the far right, but Shneur Kesselman, an Orthodox rabbi, says the threat now comes from Muslims.

"In the past five years I've been here, I think you can count on your hand how many incidents there have been from the extreme right," he said. "In my personal experience, it's 99 percent Muslims."

Read the rest at Washington Times.

Nothing new under the sun! BUT! I can't help to wonder what definition of "extreme right" Mr Kesselman has. Does he mean nazis? THEY are NOT extreme right. They are infact extreme leftists, just as totalitarian and supremacist in their hive mind thinking as the other ideologies on the left like islam and communism. They share a similar belief system- even though their profets are named differently and lived in different times.
The grandfather of socialism was not Marx or Engels- it was muhammed (just can't spell mo┬┤with a capital M).

This is the first time I have seen the media address the situation in Sweden.

It is a little toward the fringe, but The Washington Times is still somewhat mainstream.

Have you seen this in the mainstream media before?

Here in Scandinavia these storys has been rollin' as low priority news for the past five years or so. It has not made a great impact though- until reacently when Ilmar Reepalu put his foot in the mouth in daily MSM.

This is the first American paper I've seen printing it, but some papers in the UK has written about this and other issues regarding Swedish (lack of ) integration and assimilation.
Seek and ye shall find.
