Jews March in Malmo Against Rise in Anti-Semitism
Malmo, located on the southern coast of Sweden and the country's third-largest city, has been written about often on this site. It is arguably the most inhospitable city in Europe for Jews. Some 25% of the city's population is made up of Muslim immigrants who reside in the Rosengard section of the city, where others dare not enter.
Aside from periodic rioting, this community also is responsible for an intolerable rise in anti-Semitic attacks on the Jews in the city-to the point that they are leaving in droves. To exacerbate the problem, Malmo's mayor, Ilmar Reepalu, couldn't care less due to his open opposition to Israel. His attitude is if the Jews want to leave, let them leave. He has publicly criticized the Jewish community for not speaking out against Israel.
In the below article, Haaretz (Israel) reports that several hundred Jews decided to hold a protest march.
I see an interesting contrast between the kind of demonstrations Jews hold and those conducted by the folks from Rosengard, whose "demonstrations" include destruction, assault, rock throwing and setting cars afire.
Like that. Or that.
