Historically, throughout the world, Jewish people are usually found on the side of those fighting for social justice–we exclude for the moment those Jews who seize Palestinian land on the West Bank in Israel. In Sweden, Mayor Ilmar Reecepalu of Malmo, charges that Jews in his city are members of the anti-Semitic Sweden Democrats whose policies are violently anti-immigrant. He claims these Jews are on the side of those who are anti-Muslim.
This is simply a brand new version of conspiracy theories which invariably blame Jews for this or that program of destroying life for people in a society. All Swedish Jewish groups have denounced the accusation which leads the mayor to complain, “what can I do they don’t listen to me.” Why should Jews listen to this nonsense is the real question?
