Why am I not surprised by displays of anti-Semitism in Sweden?

Why am I not surprised by the anti-Jewish protest held last week in the town of Helsingborg in southern Sweden? I wrote “anti-Jewish” and not “anti-Israel” because the main slogans that were shouted there—such as “the Jews are offspring of apes and pigs”—have nothing to do with the Middle East. This is blatant anti-Semitism of the ugliest kind.
