Jews in Sweden are frightened and Jewish parents are afraid to leave their children at Jewish kindergartens.
Last weekend, after the just US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, anti-Jewish slogans were hurled at the American embassy in London and under the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. But it is in Sweden that anti-Semitism has shown its most chilling face.
Molotov cocktails were launched against a synagogue in Gothenburg, while a group of Jewish boys barricaded themselves in the adjacent Jewish center. A few hours later, Israeli flags were burned in Stockholm. In Malmö, the third largest city in the country, hundreds of people gathered to scream “we will shoot the Jews”. The next day, more Molotov cocktails were thrown at a Jewish chapel in Malmö.
