“It is deeply regrettable that the United States will stop people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the country,given the incendiary and aggressive nature of Trump’s new immigration ban,we want to ban Israelis from entering our country.
Israel has been extremely aggressive. … They have continued with their settlement policies, they have continued demolitions, they have continued their occupation policies which entail a humiliation of Palestinians, which makes the process difficult”.
A land in which
A land which, having such a small indigenous population to begin with, may well end up as the first European Islamic republic.
Just take a look at these ferocious types in Sweden's third largest city, Malmö, on Friday demonstrating in bloodcurdling antisemitic terms their displeasure at Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. ("We've declared an intifada in Malmö .... We will shoot Jews" and so on):
The BBC and most of the mainstreammedia gave the firebombing of a synagogue in Gothenburg on Saturday little publicity, perhaps because no one was physically injured. But the incident has left scars.
To quote, inter alia, Ynetnews:
'A group of 21 people with covered faces threw Molotov cocktails Saturday at a synagogue in Gothenburg.... No one was hurt in the incident, but a small fire broke out in the synagogue's parking lot. "I saw a ball of fire," one eye witness recounted....
According to a local paper, a group of Jewish youth movement members held an activity in the synagogue's complex at the time of the attack. The mother of one of the girls participating in the activity said, "She texted me, 'Mom, I'm scared' and told me 20 men with covered faces threw burning objects at the complex."
The chairman of Gothenburg's Jewish community, who witnessed the event, recounted: "Dozens of men with masks began throwing burning objects at our courtyard."
Dvir Maoz, an emissary of the world Bnei Akiva movement to Gothenburg, said, "I popped in to say hello at a party (in the synagogue complex) and sat with one of the guards. As we were talking, I saw a ball of fire out of the corner of my eye. I jumped right into the guardroom and told him a Molotov cocktail was thrown. The children were really stressed out because it was the first time they experienced a terrorist attack so close by."
"Parents came around and took the children home. Some of them were really stressed, and one told me he felt unsafe. Another told me because he had a very recognizably Jewish name the Arabs in his school routinely swore at him, bullied him and spat on him. I still can't say we're feeling an increase in anti-Semitism in our daily lives," Maoz added....'And to quote this young guy, a Swedish freelance journalist living in Norway:
