The Uncomfortable Truth About Swedish Anti-Semitism

“…Historically, anti-Semitism in Sweden could mainly be attributed to right-wing extremists. While this problem persists, a study from 2013 showed that 51 percent of anti-Semitic incidents in Sweden were attributed to Muslim extremists. Only 5 percent were carried out by right-wing extremists; 25 percent were perpetrated by left-wing extremists.”

I’m surprised the NY Times would print this.

    I think you will find the Swedish anti semitism predates the islamic invasion. I remember being shocked and disgusted at the extreme hostility a group of what i thought were nice Scandinavian traveler types exhibited to a group of Israeli tourists at a guest house in Northern Thailand.They were funny story telling decent types ,one claimed the muppets Swedish chef was his uncle. then a group of Israeli 20 somethings showed up and the attitude went to nazi like ideas about rail cars, never seen anything like it. The Nazis found eager and willing informants in Sweden local groups only too happy to round up the Jews. I find it tempers my sympathy for the Swedes as they virtue signal while their country and culture implodes.

    The NYT doesn’t see Sweden as a dire warning but as a how to guide. At best, they help the antisemites tweak their methods.
