Sweden’s anti-Israel foreign policy condemned by Swedish MP in Parliament

Swedish PM Stefan Lofven

Earlier this week Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom accused Israel of carrying out extra-judicial executions. Yesterday the Swedish Prime Minister, in attempting to “clarify” her comments, stepped right into the hole that she had dug, and then continued digging.  He had the brazen gall to deny that the knifings carried out by incited Palestinians constitute terrorism:

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven on Monday tried to improve the strained ties between his country and Israel, but only raised more ire when claiming stabbing attacks were not considered terrorism.

“No, it is not classified as that. There is an international classification when it is, or is not. What I know is not classified as terrorism,” he told Swedish news agency TT.

Löfven claimed Wallström’s comments were merely misunderstood in Israel, and that “to say the foreign minister accuses Israel of such an action (extrajudicial executions) is completely wrong. She never said that.”

Both Wallström and Löfven claimed the foreign minister did not specifically mean Israel in her comments.

“The situation in the Middle East is difficult enough without having to be encumbered by misunderstandings about anybody’s intentions,” a joint statement issued by Löfven and Wallström said.

Löfven later called the news agency in an attempt to clarify his own comments.

“I was referring to the fact it is not clear whether these knife attacks have been organized by some classified terrorist organization. But organized attacks are precisely acts of terrorism,” he said.

What a bumbling fool! He opened his mouth and put his foot in it. These European politicans have such an ingrained anti-Israel attitude that even when they think they’re being “helpful” or “clarifying” their comments, it comes out wrong and only makes matters worse. They are all in need of urgent re-education.

Kent Ekeroth, Swedish pro-Israel MP

It is therefore extremely gratifying to find that not all Swedish lawmakers are so biased or so blind. Kent Ekeroth, a member of the Swedish Parliament for the Sweden Democrats party (see the link for a Times of Israel profile of him and his part-Jewish background)  debated Wallstrom on the issue of the Middle East and took her and her government to task for their biased and hateful attitude towards Israel. (h/t Ido).

Watch the video below. If you don’t want to listen (or read the subtitles) of Wallstrom’s parts in the debate, you can scroll to Ekeroth’s contributions as he rebuts Wallstrom’s assertions at 3:22 minutes; 11:47 minutes; and at 20:31 minutes.

Kol hakavod to Kent Ekeroth. I hope there are many more parliamentarians and people in positions of influence in Sweden like Ekeroth, otherwise I fear for the future of Sweden. Although with the level of Muslim immigration into the country it might already be too late.

    Very interesting clip. She is a a perfect example of the “Don’t confuse me with facts” syndrome. She’s made up her mind ages ago who’s right and who’s wrong and nothing anyone can show her will change her mind. Until Swedes start dying on the streets of Stockholm and Malmo. Shouldn’t be long now……

    Kent A Ekeroth thank you for your continous support

    Margot would love to see how your city would fare with a knife intifada! It’s the Pal residents that are the murders. You confused Margot Wallstrom

    THE SWEEDS MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTRADIICT THE SAYING THAT, “VIOLENCE BREADS MORE VIOLENCE. IT IS A PROVEN FACT THAT APERTHEID IS A VIOLENT ACT AND WHICH INTERNATIONAL LAW LEGITIMATES SELF DEFFENCE BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY AND IS AVAILABLE.
    VIVA WALLSTROM.

      You are absolutely right that apartheid is violent and must be combatted. However, as I have proven over and over again on this blog, and as has been asserted and proved countless times by numerous activists, Israel is NOT an apartheid state. On the contrary the Palestinian entity is apartheid by not allowing any Jews to live within it. Most Arab states are apartheid by not allowing Israelis or Jews into their countries.

      And therefore it is the Arabs whom you should be fighting,not Israel.

      Now go away.

    WE WHO LIVE BY THE TRUTH ARE HERE TO STAY AND SO ARE THE PALESTINIANS.
    YOUR STATEMENT DOES NOT MAKE SENCE AS IT IS A WELL KNOWN FACT THAT ZIONISTS ARE CALLED ZIONISTS HAVE BEEN LIVING NORMAL LIVES ALL OVER THE WORLD INCLUDING IN THE ARAB COUNTRIES WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
    THE RECOGNIZED PALESTINIAN STATE IS OCCUPIED AND THEREFORE THOSE COUNTRIES THAT TALK IN THE NAME OF DEMOCRACY SHOULD SUPPORT BDS IF THEY ARE TRUELY SERIOUS.5

    • anneinpt says:

      You know absolutely nothing of Zionism, Zionists, Jews and Israel. The more you talk the more lies and nonsense you spout. Read my latest post on BDS.

      And then go away. You are not welcome here with your libels and slander.
