Answers to Questions on Sweden by Yair Davidiy
Is it true that Sweden is dangerous for Jewish people nowadays?
Sweden has about 10 million inhabitants of whom ca. one million are Muslim.
A government study in 2006 estimated that 15% of Swedes agree with the statement: "The Jews have too much influence in the world today". 5% of the total adult population and 39% of adult Muslims "harbour systematic antisemitic views."
Â Antisemitism in Sweden
Â From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jews are often attacked and insulted in the streets of the city of Malmo.
Â The culprits are nearly always Muslims.
Â The native Swedish people personally have nothing against Jews.
Â The impression though is that they ascribe blame to the alleged crimes of Israel as portrayed by the Media or as described by Swedish politicians. The reality of such alleged crimes is even frequently spoken of as if it was a known factor that nobody contests!
Â They also opine that it would be better for all if Jews kept a lower profile.
Â In other words there seems to be a tendency to blame the victim.
[Jews are not the only ones to suffer in this way. Swedish women are also victimised and silenced. ]
There is a tendency in Sweden to blame the Jews for wrongs supposedly carried out by the State of Israel. The Swedes seem to think that the Jews should be punished for the deeds in question. Not long ago their forefathers were blaming the Jews for having executed a god-man they believed in.
