Blood libels and Swedish self-righteousness

When a newspaper publishes scurrilous calumnies about African Americans, Chinese (or Pacific Islander) Americans, Latinos, or even any invented hyphenation of American that feels entitled to grievance, most decent people are outraged, and will gladly support the demand for some kind of redress.

When a newspaper deliberately publishes falsehoods that seek to rile up hatred and discrimination, perhaps the matter is so egregious that they must be condemned by all honest politicians?
Surely the government should speak out against the promotion of racial hatred and bigotry, if only to show that such matters are not tolerated in civilized society?

Probably because righteous blond übermenshen cannot conceive of the possibility that anything they do might be objectionable. And in any case, the only ones complaining are "those people".
You know, "those people", îck îck pøø!
A vigorous Scandinavian dislike of Jews is a Germanic virtue.

"As documented in the Jerusalem Post, Boström freely admits that he has no evidence whatsoever to back up this blood libel, but indicted that it is up to Israelis to prove innocence in this matter. "
End quote.


"This is not an isolated incident, but part of an insidious pattern of Swedish funding of anti-Semitism. As the Post article also noted, "Much of the material in Boström's article came from a book he published in 2001 Inshallah which was jointly financed by the Swedish Foreign Ministry and various other government-backed organizations." "
End quote.

In other words, the Swedish Government is directly involved in promoting lies about, and hatred of, Israel.

[But evenmore! Swedish state agency subsidizes Gothenburg terror conference - revealing Swedish government funding for a symposium seeking to 'remove the PFLP, Hamas and other terrorist organizations from the EU’s terror list', in order that the organizations in question could resume collecting funds legally in Europe. Also on the agenda were a total boycott of Israel and 'developing strategies to explain the need for armed resistance' (terrorism)]

However, Swedish duplicity is well known.

"NGO Monitor issued a comprehensive report in June 2009 detailing the history of Swedish official support for NGO's that demonize Israel with the inflammatory rhetoric of "apartheid," "ethnic cleansing," and "massacres.""
End quote.

The quotes above are on BLUE TRUTH, in this post, which you should read in its entirety.
The author, Dr. Mike, urges you to let the Swedish government know that this does not sit well with decent people.

A list of Swedish diplomatic offices can be found here, and the Swedish Consulate in San Francisco can be found here.

I am sure they would just about love to hear from you.

What is it that compells peope that are not involved in the sitation,people that are neither Jewish nor Moslem, people that really don't know much about the history of the situation, to publically tell lies about Israel? Why the compulsion to loudly parrot Palestinian myths, without a moment's thought or independent research? There are only improper motives for this phenomena on the part of the Swedes and many, many of the anti-Israel types in the US.
