Swedish mosque set ablaze, five injured



An arsonist set fire to a mosque in the Swedish town of Eskilstuna on Thursday, injuring five people, police said, an incident which comes amid an intense debate over immigration.


The immigration debate has been marked by racial tensions, and has pitted the far right, which wants to cut the number of asylum seekers allowed into Sweden by 90 percent, against mainstream parties intent on preserving the Nordic country's liberal policy.

Between 15 and 20 people were in the mosque, located in the ground floor of a building in a mainly residential area, when the fire erupted. Local media footage showed smoke and flames billowing from the windows.

"A witness saw somebody throw an object through the window of the building, which serves as a mosque, after which a violent fire began," police spokesman Lars Franzell said.

1. Sounds like 15 to 20 counts of attempted murder. If caught, the perp should get life.

2. Some very odd things going on there. last week a Swedish pol demanded Jews give up their religion

Björn Söder, who is a deputy speaker in the Swedish parliament, causes uproar among the country’s approximately 18,000 Jews.
*
Jews must abandon their religious identities to become proper Swedes, an ultra-nationalist Swedish politician declared this week, according to reports in the European media.

In an interview, Björn Söder of the Sweden Democrats party stated that “most of Jewish origin who have become Swedes leave their Jewish identity” and that it is important to distinguish between “citizenship and nationhood.”

Söder, who is a deputy speaker in the Swedish parliament, caused uproar among the country’s approximately 18,000 Jews, with Lena Posner Körösi of the Official Council of Jewish Communities in Sweden being quoted by The Guardian as saying his statements were “exactly like in 1930s Germany” and that they constitute “good old right-wing anti-Semitism.”

Muslim violence against Jews in Sweden, especially in Malmö, the country’s third largest city, have been a cause for great concern in the local community. Last September a bomb was set off outside of Malmö’s Jewish Community Center.

Dozens of anti-Semitic crimes are reported annually in the city. Last month, a man was beaten there for displaying an Israeli flag in his window.

3. When the hate starts to fly ...

... in Europe, it never takes them long to get back to basics.

Jew hatred has been part of the European psyche for 1500 years.

6. You are so right

I am married to a European and her family who live in France, Switzerland and Italy are all very anti-Semitic. It's odd as they are very progressive and support LGBT rights, climate change policy, & social justice issues. With that, I just don't understand why they hate Jews so much.

18. It's visceral ...

... to Europeans.

For their entire history Jews have been the scapegoat for everything bad that every happens. When things were good, Jews were subject to punitive taxes and public scorn. When things got bad enough, they'd slaughter or expel them.

Centuries of that kind of deep-seated indoctrination isn't going to go away just because they got too carried away the last time. I just goes underground until something new comes along to blow on the embers.

20. I don't understand the hatred.

My aunt married a Jew. My two cousins are "wrong side" Jews (dad a Jew, mom not born a Jew). All good compassionate well educated people with views far left of mine. Still don't understand the hatred.

26. Hatred is probably the easiest thing...

... in the world to understand.

Take a group, any group, of easily identifiable, culturally unique people who represent a minority in any population. Then add on centuries of religious bigotry and a little political or economic strife and you have a recipe for hatred and suspicion. The same scenario has been playing over and over again for over 1500 years in Europe.

People (particularly those in Europe) believe the worst about Jews because it fits so well with their world view.

If a Jew is rich, he got so at the expense of a non-Jew. If a Jew is poor, he's an inferior race. If many Jews work in the same industry, it could only be because of a manipulation of the system and nepotism. If a particular profession doesn't attract many Jews, it's because they are weak, or lazy or because that profession doesn't advance their nefarious plans. It's convenient for Europeans to not only hate the Jews, but to believe the Jews are responsible for any misfortunes that might befall them.

No, I totally get the hate and I would consider it a wise move for any Jew to leave Europe for a more tolerant society such as the US or Israel.

28. have you got some proof

 

Swedish Labor party wants Jews to have a special "J" stamp in Swedish Passports
for this outlandish statement?

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/oct/15/sweden-and-the-jews

As Inger Collingridge writes (Letters, 14 October), in 1938 Sweden (together with Switzerland) did ask Nazi Germany to stamp the passports of Jews with a J, so that Jewish refugees could be refused admission. But there was a later change of policy. In 1943 Sweden admitted nearly 8,000 Jewish refugees, mainly from German-occupied Norway and Denmark; Count Bernadotte, of the Swedish Red Cross, near the end of the war secured the release of 31,000 inmates from German concentration camps, several thousand Jews among them, who were brought to Sweden; and Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish consul in Budapest, from 1944 onwards issued Swedish passports to thousands of Hungarian Jews, saving them from the death camps and enabling many to go to Sweden. Some 10,000 Jews were brought to Sweden after the war by the Red Cross and the UN.
In 1938, every other country in the world was rejecting German Jewish refugees as well; perhaps you have heard of the St Louis:
The MS St. Louis was a German ocean liner most notable for a single voyage in 1939, in which her captain, Gustav Schröder, tried to find homes for 915 German refugees, after they were denied entry to Cuba, the United States and Canada, until finally accepted in various European countries, which were later engulfed in World War II.

Substantiate that appalling allegation now or retract it.

30. Swedish Muslim Arsonist gang attack Police Station

Friday night a gang of about 10 people attacked the local police station in Farsta in southern Stockholm area.

The gang, which consisted of “younger men”, poured flammable liquid over 4-5 police cars parked outside the station. They also blocked the door leading from the station to the parking lot, to prevent the cops from coming out and extinguish the fire.

A plainclothes police officer saw what was happening and managed to grab one of the perpetrators. This apparently got the rest of the gang to leave. The arrested person is in his 20s. …

Police categorize the incident as attempted sabotage alternatively attempted vandalism. Because the crime was directed against the law enforcement and is one of a series of attacks in recent years against the Swedish judicial system, the crime also meets the criteria to be characterized as a terrorism.
