Sweden’s questionable humanitarianism

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Anti-Semitic attacks by Arabs encouraged and paid for by renowned Holocaust-denier and arch-racist Mahmud Abbas have torn apart civilian Jewish lives and families in Haifa, Petach Tikva, Netanya, Rishon LeZion, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Rehov,  Ashdod and more.

And that’s just in the past 24 hours.

The disgusting part is: self-styled “humanitarian superpower” Sweden, which actually takes tax revenues from Swedish citizens who have worked hard all their lives and instead diverts the money to the PA terrorists. With impunity.

Sweden funds this disgrace.

And says not one word about the ongoing pogroms being carried out by the barbaric racists of the depraved Arab society governed by Abbas. After all, it’s only Jews who are the innocent civilian victims. No story then.

Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström, the architect behind Sweden’s embracing and recognition of the racist Palestinian society, is a disgrace to principle, honesty, morals, decency and humanity.

Some “humanitarian superpower”.

Anyone with legal insight got any comments on this?

We are fast approaching the point at which it will be legally viable to sue our own governments for continuing to provide financial assistance to the racist Mahmud Abbas, since he abuses that funding to bankroll terrorists and is in a coalition government with the equally anti-Semitic Hamas. See here for a clothing store called “Hitler” where mannequins carry knives and advertise the best clothing for terrorists to wear when stabbing Jews.

Which terrorists, you ask? Those racist Arabs who wantonly murder Jewish civilians – young infants and 80-year-old women – simply because they are Jews. Some of these Arab terrorists, subjected to primitive racist indoctrination all their lives, are as young as 13 years old, and their victims are the same age or even younger, down to infants in strollers (see also here).

The racist Mahmud Abbas also routinely names streets, schools and sports facilities in “honour” of those of his subjects who succeed in killing most Jews. See here, here, here and here.

There simply has to be a legal challenge to counter this travesty. Not a legal challenge against the racist Mahmud Abbas, but against those governments and organisations, such as nation-states like Sweden, the USA and Britain, transnational organisations such as the EU and the UN, and NGOs such as SIDA, the Church of Sweden, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch et al – who provide the racist Abbas with funding and diplomatic cover.

Funding and cover that he uses exclusively to glorify and support violence, terrorism, barbarism, indoctrination, religious hatred and anti-Semitism.

Anti-Semitic Education in Gothenburg, Sweden

Monday, October 12th, 2015

The Local Education Authority (LEA) of Gothenburg in Sweden has taken an unusually aggressive decision to expose the city’s schoolchildren to a highly controversial film entitled (in the English translation) “Even the dead have a name” produced by the pro-terrorist Ship to Gaza (StG) organisation.

This is a remarkably insensitive decision, especially bearing in mind that the film is a combination of both subtle and overt anti-Semitism, and also expresses undiluted anti-Israel sentiment.

The unsuitability and questionable legality of disseminating anti-Semitic material in schools should need no further discussion. Nobody who believes in democracy, equal rights and religious equality should have any reason to question the unsuitability of spreading anti-Semitic propaganda. Anywhere. Least of all in schools, to impressionable young children.

The second issue, the film’s unabashed anti-Israel sentiment, bears some examination. Firstly because the film employs classic anti-Semitic clichés in a subtle, subliminal, 80 minute long assault on the sensibilities of the viewer (the LEA intends to show this movie to children as young as 15, remember).

And secondly because the LEA is bound by the Swedish Curriculum for Compulsory SchoolingLgr11, Parts 1 and 2, and its Code of Statutes (SKOLFS).

Chapter 1, entitled Fundamental Values and Tasks, Section 2 Understanding and Compassion specifically and unequivocally states that “xenophobia and intolerance must be confronted with knowledge, open discussion and active measures”. The same chapter, section 3 Objectivity and Open Approaches, stipulates that “Teaching should be objective and encompass a range of different approaches. All parents should be able to send their children to school, fully confident that their children will not be prejudiced in favour of any particular view. All who work in the school should … clearly dissociate themselves from anything that conflicts with these values”.

These are key considerations because nowhere in the film is there any attempt to offer the young viewing public a balanced view of the Palestinians’ self-inflicted, racist and exceptionally violent conflict with Israel. There is not one single statement throughout the 80 minute film to counter any of the virulently anti-Israel statements made there. This is in direct contravention of the above regulations, the very values that are embodied in the LEA’s own Code of Conduct. A Local Education Authority that so openly flouts its own regulations and uses anti-Semitic tropes to do so ought to be a major concern not just for Sweden’s educational establishment and the nation’s politicians, it should also merit close police attention and the interest of the State Prosecutor’s office.

Youngsters who previewed the film acknowledged that had they watched it without any prior knowledge of the issues involved, they would have emerged afterwards as committed anti-Semites. Jewish youngsters who previewed the film said that had they watched it together with non-Jewish classmates, peer pressure alone would have caused them severe discomfort, perhaps even physical threat or harm.

Not least because of two key phrases and concepts that were given prominence throughout the movie: that people who disagree with the film “have sold their souls for silver” (a clear, unequivocal anti-Semitic trope) and that there are “good Jews and bad Jews” – with the good Jews being those who agree with the political aims of Ship to Gaza (StG). All other Jews are bad Jews. Any Jewish pupil who disagrees with the aims of StG is to be regarded as a “bad Jew” by his or her classmates. This kind of vicious anti-Semitic indoctrination of children, accompanied by underlying threats of being frozen out by one’s peers or even being physically assaulted by them, is not only unacceptable, it is a frightening indictment on an LEA which feels that such material is suitable for children.

Raw political indoctrination, disregard for legal constraints and the fanning of religious hatred have no place in a nation’s educational system.

So far, the Gothenburg LEA has steadfastly refused to withdraw the film from its offering for schoolchildren. With sufficient international pressure the highly politicised adults who are wilfully indoctrinating their young charges will hopefully be forced to acknowledge that “Even the dead have a name” is unfit for purpose, that it has no place whatsoever in an educational environment.

Not least because there is no place for indoctrination in education.

Sweden: When not all the news is fit to print

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Want to fully understand how the cancer that is anti-Semitism infects a society, in a manner as deadly as the silent spread of an invisible cloud of poison gas killing off an entire, unsuspecting population while it sleep?

Look no further than the Swedish media – willing agents spreading the fatal toxin of anti-Semitism.

Yesterday, Christmas Day, Palestinian Arab terrorists attacked an 11-year old Israeli Jewish girl, Ayala Shapira, and her father Avner as they drove home at night near Ma’ale Shomron in Samaria. The Arab terrorists set the girl alight by throwing a Molotov cocktail of burning petrol straight at her face and torso. She now has 3rd degree burns across most of her face and body.

It is worth repeating: the girl, Ayala, is just eleven (11) years old. The deliberate target of Palestinian Arabs who gain pleasure from setting little girls alight. Today, in 2014, Molok is alive and well and thriving in Islamic Palestinian society.
