Three arrested for Molotov cocktail attack on Gothenburg synagogue

Three people have been arrested after a synagogue in Gothenburg was reported to have been attacked with Molotov cocktails on Saturday night.

… Although the motive for the attack is unknown, it follows anti-Semitic incidents in both Malmö and Stockholm earlier this weekend.

    But whistling in England is a hate crime.

      Youtuber Gary Orsum has a good tongue-in-cheek take on this.

        “Taking photographs without permission” is now a hate crime? On the face of it it is not limited to odious ‘upskirt’ photos, but any photographs that a woman decides she doesn’t like.

        • Editor

          Yeah, not sure how this will be enforced but legalities are usually defined by jurists not man-hating ideologues.

          • Watchman

            The judge can dramatically affect the outcome by emphasising to any jury that it law requires only the complaining woman’s feelings be considered, and not what a reasonable woman’s feeling would be. Unfortunately the process is often the punishment, as the woman has the prosecution costs borne by the state, and the man’s defence costs are often borne by him unless he wants to roll the dice in being represented by a public defender in a criminal case. Depending on where you are, you may not even have the option of free defence representation.

        Makes me wonder how many of these misogynous incidents hate crimes were from increasing numbers of ‘asians’, or is this more a result of third wave feminism exercising their increasing power, or both combined?

        • Editor

          I would guess the latter of your suggestions. You get your progressive brownie points and no plod who wants to keep their job would dare disparage “asians” in today’s “community cohesion” Britain.

          • Watchman

            Yes, but the incidents reported might be caused by ‘asians’ who view any woman not in a hijab as being of loose morals and thus deserving of outrageous sexual suggestions. The police and feminists are not going to report these incidents as a mainly Muslim origin phenomenon and so every man is tarred with the same brush, and laws brought in that will probably be enforced more against traditional Britons for the same reasons that the Rotherham rape gangs went unpunished for so many years. The mention of sexual harassment in schools indicates that the attitudes present in the perpetrator’s home is significantly implicated.

    Yeah, the motive is a complete mystery.

    • Sahih Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

    • Watchman

      Well, it obviously can’t be about the US recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel since it seems to target every Jew around the world. /sarc

    three soon to be released…with apology…..with $$$

    These “three people” have names? Mugshots?

  • Watchman

    Were they arrested for the firebombing or for allowing themselves to be identified? Sweden has never been purged of anti-semites as many countries were because it was ‘neutral’ in WW2 and never invaded by either side.
