Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström has indefinitely postponed a planned trip to Israel, a spokesman said Wednesday, amid an apparent cooling of relations between the two countries since Sweden recognized Palestine.

“The foreign minister has decided to postpone her visit to Israel and Palestine. Instead of next week it will take place later. No date is yet decided,” Margot Wallström’s spokesman Erik Boman told AFP.

    Who needs her and what will she offer/

      A backstabbing ‘partner’, that’s what she will offer.

      Not much. They’re going Muzz.

        Swedish Jews had better start getting while the getting is good. If Palestinian gangsters with diplo immunity are on their way, it doesn’t
        take a rocket scientist to figure out what their “Plan A” will entail.

    This will all change when Russia annexes Sweden.

      Yes, the scrotumless Swedes are up for grabs, though it’s not unrealistic to presume the sand age mudslimes will beat the Russians at it.

        And the Russians will deal with the Muz properly.

        • Destroyer-Drone

          Yes, in the same way they deal with Iran that is: by sending them hydrocarbons and military gear to further plough through the West.

          This whole mess truly started with subversion, which was a favourite trick of Putin’s world-renowned organisation.

    Good riddance, that foreigner can f*ck off for all we care. And with all due respect of course.

    I sincerely hope that some one in the Israeli govt called and told her she was not wellcome. It is the treatment these leftist need. I laughed out loud when I read it thinking that it was perfect.
