Sweden's long history of terror support

If anyone out there really believes that Israel's empty threats to boycott IKEA and Volvo are going to bring the Swedes around to stop supporting terror, David Frankfurter has news for you: The Swedes can take the heat.
In March of 2004, I highlighted reports from Swedish newspapers that showed that Sweden had, from 1997 to 2004, deliberately and consistently classified as secret their own reports that their donations to Arafat’s Palestinian Authority were being diverted to corruption and the creation of a police state. Why? So that they could continue to knowingly channel billions of crowns to Palestinian corruption and violence. Also hidden from view of the Parliament was tens of millions in donations to the Palestinian Negotiations Support Unit. An organization which had stopped negotiating and had become a pure Palestinian propaganda agency. Swedish politicians were “shocked” – but the money kept flowing.

Later that same year, Lisa Abramowicz and I published an article highlighting the fact that the Swedish government was funding a conference in Gothenburg aimed at finding ways to fund Palestinian terrorism.

For well over a decade, Sweden has deliberately and carefully looked for and found ways to secretly and openly fund the Palestinian propaganda and physical war against the Jews. And the Israeli government thinks that they can get the Swedes to change their ways with a bit of diplomatic pressure. They forget that the Swedes may live in a cold country, but they have proved that they can take the heat.
I don't expect the Swedes to come around.

But I do expect the Israeli government to tone down their relations with Sweden and not to allow this terror supporting country to serve as an intermediary between us and anyone else. And for that reason, the raised level of discourse serves a purpose.

Its time Israel broke off political and economic ties with Sweden. There is no reason in the world why Israel must be on good terms with one who funds its enemies, libels Jews murderers and works for Israel's destruction. In view of Sweden's on-going support for anti-Israel extremism, Israel should not continue to act like nothing has happened.
