For some Swedes, it was a rude awakening: the newspaper Sydsvenskan’s interview with Swedish Israeli Shirley Tsubarah. “I’m hated in Malmo,” the 25-year-old said.
Tsubarah, who has an Israeli father, says that after she and her family fell victim to hate crimes, she left Sweden a few years ago and moved to Israel.
In the interview, she said the Swedish authorities consciously ignored the situation — 134 complaints last year to the Malmo police, including claims of violence and property damage. But all those files were closed without investigations, she says.
