More anti-Semitism from Sweden

Sorry traffic has been slow today - I went to a seminar in Tel Aviv so that I can try to make a living.

Remember Malmo, Sweden? Remember Gaza in Malmo? Remember the Davis Cup match with no spectators? I'd like you to meet Ilmar Reepalu, the apparently Swedish-born, non-Muslim Mayor of Malmo. In honor of Holocaust Memorial Day this week, Mr. Reepalu has given an interview with a Swedish newspaper called Skanskan.

The interview is in Swedish, but reader Erik J has been kind enough to send me a translation of some pertinent parts, and I'm sure you will all not be surprised to hear that Mr. Reepalu fits right into the country of Aftonbladet and Carl Bildt.
Did You know that the mayor of Malmö, Sweden - Yes that Malmo, Israel, tennis - in an interview on Holocaust memorial day said the following:

"We don´t accept neither zionism nor antisemitism. They are both extremes that pose them selves above other groups and regard those [groups] as inferior."

(The quote in Swedish: Vi accepterar varken sionism http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifeller antisemitism. Det är ytterligheter som sätter sig över andra grupper och anser att de är mindre värda.]

He also stated that in his view, the jewish congregation and jews as individuals have a responsibility for what others think of them:

"I would have wished for the jewish congregation [in Malmo] to take a stand against Israels violations of the civilian population of Gaza. In stead they choose to hold a demonstration at Stortorget [a big square in Malmo] that could send the wrong signal."

[Quote in swedish: Jag skulle önska att judiska församlingen tog avstånd från Israels kränkningar av civilbefolkningen i Gaza. I stället väljer man att hålla en demonstration på Stortorget, som kan sända fel signaler.
Wherever he is buried Raoul Wallenberg must be rolling over in his grave.

I love how he only addresses one side of the issue. The logical extension of what he said is that Arabs/Muslims ALSO bear responsibility for how people view them, so maybe they should stop trying to murder innocents and behaving like Nazis.

It drives me up the wall how people focus in on Cast Lead, as if there was nothing that happened prior to it that might have provoked it. I mean, COME ON, what do they think the Arabs were doing for the 8 years before that? I have a feeling that they know that, but they just enjoy any chance they can get to slander Jews.

Just a small correction: Ilmar Reepalu was born in Nova, Estonia 11 February 1943. He arrived in Sweden in August 1944 as a refugee together with his parents and one year older sister.

However, Estonian or Swedish at birth does not really matter; the voters in Malmö elected this icowardly nonentity as their mayor. Says it all really.

Carl Bildt writes on his blog that he is on his way through Switzerland towards Davos to take part in the discussions at the World Economic Forum.

And who will he meet first of all?

"Tomorrow I will start with a discussion with amongst others the Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad."

Question: Does PM Fayyad not have a nom-de-guerre? You see for a long long while Mr Bildt went around using Abu Mazen when he was talking or writing about Muhammed Abbas not knowing that Abbas was only called that by his fellow "fighters" / terrorists and people who wanted people like Mr Bildt to remember that M Abbas was a terrorist. (!!)
