Scandal: Jews not invited to Swedish Kristallnacht commemoration

The organizers of an anti-Nazi event in Sweden face controversy Monday, after declining to invite the Jewish community to the event.

…The organizers claim that inviting the Jewish community presents a security risk, reports, citing anti-Semitic and anti-Israel protests present at past events.

“In previous years, we have had a lot of Palestinian flags at these rallies, and even one banner where the Israeli flag was equated with a swastika,” organizer and local Workers’ Party member Jan Hägglund told locals. “The Jewish community wasn’t invited because we assumed they might be uncomfortable around that sort of thing.”

    If (when) Islam completely takes over Sweden, do you suppose they’ll have special Jewish, Christian and Swedish Remembrance Days? Or perhaps offer courses about those extinct people who used to live there? Somehow I think that a tad unlikely ….

      That’s all jahiliyya to be swept away by the faithful.

  • The Butterfly

    They’ve turned this memorial and commemoration into a celebration. Diversity has strengthened them!

    Sweden’s about to learn that karma can be a real bitch.

      The Finns have found out that Sweden is sending trainloads of enrichers northwards to decant them over the border into Finland.

        I’m sure the Hungarians would happily advise the Finns on fencing off the border.

    Earth to Jan Hagglund: Don’t invite the haters, you dumb fuck!

    And an Arab Israeli MK showed up to scream how Jews are Nazis. Keep it classy Sweden, and die screaming in a fire.

    The f***ing Swedes SHOULD be uncomfortable with that “sort of thing”. They are commemorating a Jewish tragedy and not including Jews. I’m beginning to hate them and feeling they are getting everything they deserve, cowards.

    Swedes, didn’t like them as supposed neutralists who supplied most of the iron and steel for Nazi Tanks during WWII, never liked them as hockey players, and now this. Once upon a time Vikings were noble. Today not so much. Oh yeah, Bergman films suck.

    • Ingmar or Ingrid?

        Definitely Ingmar. Ingrid’s a beauty. Ingmar’s a bore.
