Anti-Semitism from Muslims in Sweden is directly related to the ideology of jihad and dhimmitude. The Jews, instead of acquiescing to dhimmi status, have stepped out of line by establishing and maintaining a state. That is their offense, whatever enormities of the Israeli army are invoked by Palestinian propagandists; the ultimate offense is that Jews in Israel are not submitting to Islamic rule. This creates a jihadist imperative against them everywhere.
From the Stockholm Spectator blog, with thanks to Ali Dashti:
Mayer calls Sweden “a microcosmic example of what is happening in the rest of Europe.” He notes that “although anti-Semitism is illegal in Sweden, and while most native Swedes might not actually engage in anything of an anti-Semitic nature, they are indifferent to anti-Semitic acts taking place before their eyes and make no effort to intervene.”
“They shy away from conflict,” said Mayer.
“Nadav, the youngest of Mayer’s children is a defiant 14-year old who insists on wearing a Star of David around his neck. As a result, he has been attacked on buses, trains and in the street by gangs of Muslim youth. Only once did a Swede come to his aid and hold off the assailants,” writes the Post.
Then comes the article’s most shocking revelation: “[Nadav’s] elder siblings came to Israel and joined the army, declaring that it was safer for them to serve in the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) than to be exposed to what is happening in Sweden.” (My italics) Am I to understand that the daily threat of death and mutilation at the hand of terrorists and suicide bombers, not to mention the irritation caused by those pesky ISM thugs, is preferable to walking the streets of Sweden? Ouch.
