Swedish FM Carl Bildt talks about “immaturity”!

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt has made a career out of protecting Islamists, using Swedish taxpayer funds to jet off to photo-ops with terror supporters, and shielding Islamists from the fallout of their own actions.

Most recently Carl Bildt was the only EU foreign minister to block heightened economic sanctions against Iran, whose regime openly advocates the destruction of UN member state Israel. Iran is currently acquiring suspected nuclear weapons technology for that purpose. 

An Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, revealed that Bildt may be advocating this soft stance on Iran for crass financial reasons – Sweden’s telecom giant Ericsson has a massive contract with Iran’s Irancell and Swedish jobs may be in the balance. Carl Bildt, whose level of adolescent immaturity can be judged by the fact that he conducts his nation’s foreign policy on Twitter, says “This is not how I think mature nations should interact with each other.”

He has registered his displeasure with the Israel Embassy in Stockholm and delivered a sharp admonition to Ambassador Isaac Bachman.

Remarkably, Bildt’s response to this story in the free press is totally at variance with his stance when Swedish mudslinging, borderline anti-Semitic, tabloid Aftonbladet published a fabricated “report” that the Israeli military routinely kills Palestinian Arabs in order to harvest their internal organs for lucrative trafficking. Back then Bildt upheld the freedom of the press to print what they like.

Changed days, eh Carl Bildt? A newspaper 3000 kilometres away prints an article and suddenly Bildt is all concerned about the freedoms that go with freedom of the press. My my!

Announcing The EU Humour Awards

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Let’s see now:

The EU has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

The EU has received the Nobel Peace Prize because it did NOTHING to end Turkey’s illegal and continuing 40-year occupation of the northern half of EU member state Cyprus.

The EU has received the Nobel Peace Prize because it did NOTHING to terminate Great Britain’s continued occupation of Gibraltar, which shares geographic contiguity with EU member state Spain, while Britain herself, an island state, is located far from Gibraltar.

The EU has received the Nobel Peace Prize because the British and Northern Irish succeeded in bringing about peace accords WITHOUT the involvement of the EU – specifically without the involvement of the EU – bringing decades of death and destruction to an end.

Either the people at the Nobel Awards Committee are really, REALLY bored, or they have an acute, bizarre sense of black humour.

For more perspective, read the following articles by Raluca Besliu, Eric van Puyvelde and Ben Brumfield/Joe Sterling.

Has the entire Swedish media industry gone to sleep?

Wake up Swedish media!!!

Hello, are you there, Swedish media? Where’s your usual outrage, your columns and pages of criticism? The smuggling tunnels leading from Sinai into the Gaza Strip – you know, the tunnels that are an absolute “lifeline” for “saving the lives” of a “starving” people in “the world’s biggest concentration camp” – those tunnels are being shut down with force, one after the other.

But for some unfathomable reason there’s not a word in the Swedish media about a story that would normally have them in a feeding-frenzy of abuse, conspiracy theories, unfounded allegations and borderline anti-Semitism. I mean, even the publicly funded Ship to Gaza organisation has not a word to say on the subject – and they are currently on their way to “rescue” the people of Gaza in a boat the size of a dinghy on steroids which they claim is carrying “humanitarian aid”. It probably has room in its hold for 3, maybe even 4 cans of baked beans – and a host of publicly funded left-wingers on a freebie cruise of the Med paid for by Swedish taxpayers.

And there’s more: a mere stone’s throw away (literally) from these tunnels the most terrible kind of ethnic cleansing is under way – indigenous people of a religion different to that of the majority are being systematically robbed, raped, forced into marriage outside their religion, driven away, murdered – and the Swedish media, usually so keen to pick up on allegations of human rights abuses in this part of the world – are totally silent here too.

Thestarving people of Gaza” (see also here, here, here, here and here) and “ethnic cleansing” - two great favourites of the Swedish media, in particular the taxpayer-funded Ship to Gaza. Yet not a word to be read in Swedish.

Strange!

N0 wait- the Jews can’t be blamed for any of this, it’s the Islamist regime in Egypt that is closing down the tunnels, and it’s the Islamists in northern Sinai who are ethnically cleansing the region of all traces of Christianity – pretty much like their clansmen are doing in the PA-controlled Bethlehem. Ah well, that would explain the total silence. That’s all right then.

The Swedish media – a parallel universe where facts are never allowed to get in the way of propaganda against the Jewish state. Or, for that matter, against the increasingly embattled and desperate situation of the Jews in Malmö, Sweden’s third-largest city. Pretty sure there’s a story in there somewhere if only I could find it. But then I’m not smart enough to be part of the Swedish media circus…
