In Malmö, Zionism is Racism

Ted Ekeroth, who is the treasurer of Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats) in Lund, just sent us the following note about the situation in Malmö:

There was an article yesterday (in Swedish) reporting that the Jews of Malmö are fleeing because of increased violence from the Arabs/Muslims (translated using Google translate).

Malmö: burning carsThe article states that a lot of Jews don’t see a future in Malmö because of increased violence, so they are moving to Israel.

Ilmar Reepalu, the mayor of Malmö, was interviewed (in Swedish) in Skånska Dagbladet as a follow-up to the above article (translated using Google translate).

There are a few facts worth mentioning about the situation in Malmö.

Ilmar Reepalu, a Social Democrat, states the following (question from the newspaper in bold, Reepalu’s answer follows):

The Jewish community has its own security force, and sometimes policing. Doesn’t that show that the group is especially vulnerable?

“Malmö and Skåne have unfortunately had trouble with far-right groups. I myself have had swastikas painted on my apartment.”

The Jewish community believes that this is the extreme Left and the hard-line Muslim groups.

“I understand that right-wing groups have been those that have plagued Jewish communities for a long time. But I do not know if the far Left does the same. But of course, conflict in the Gaza Strip last year spilled over to Malmö.”
- - - - - - - - -
Have you considered a public statement that Malmö will not accept anti-Semitism? Or is it too controversial?

“We accept neither Zionism or anti-Semitism. There are extremists who put themselves above the other groups and believe they are worth less.”

Note here that:

1. Reepalu is the same guy that defended the debacle at Davis Cup earlier this year, when the public wasn’t allowed to attend the game, in which Israel participated.
2. He doesn’t know what everybody else in Malmö knows — that violence has increased sharply and it is almost always committed by immigrants, and especially Muslim immigrants.
3. Ilmar Reepalu is declaring that “Zionism is racism”!

It's an awful sight to see a nation disintegrate like this. It's even worse when you see the same pattern repeating itself throughout the Western world. I hope these people find a safe haven somewhere else.

"But of course, conflict in the Gaza Strip last year spilled over to Malmö.”

Little worlds colide Sweden now shares a border with Gaza!

When all Jews return to Israel, the Messiah will come! :)

Ah, I see the head in the sand trick. Think what you will of Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism, but he clearly outlines that Fascism has its ideological roots in Communism and is just as statist and totalitarian as its red cousin. Nazism may be hard to define, but it is anything but conservative (if one interprets conservatism, even on the Continent, as being a devotion to monarchy, aristocracy, Church and small government; on all cases Hitler failed - he despised the Habsburgs (several died in concentration camps, and they were the only Imperial Family in Europe), increasingly promoted party loyalists above talent (you may think that meritocracy, but aristocracy is meritocracy's logical conclusion - seriously, think about it), he was pagan, and totalitarian in government size).

A brilliant lie, and one that has since become the obvious unconditional surrender in argument that it is.
