Swedish Mosque Fire-an Accident

Hat tip Jihad Watch and Times of Israel

Sweden, a country from which Jews are leaving in droves, is currently prostrating itself over a supposed arson attack that occurred at a mosque in the city of Eskilstuna. In response, thousands of Swedes have held vigils at the site to show their solidarity with Muslims in the country.

Don't get me wrong. Attacking anyone's place of worship is wrong. However, it now appears that the fire was not a hate crime rather an accident. (Stop me if you've heard this before.)

Meanwhile, Swedish Jews who are trying to bring awareness to acts of real anti-Semitism (at the hands of Muslim immigrants) via so-called Kippah marches are seeing their own demonstrations co-opted by left-wingers trying to dilute them into events against all forms of hate and-oh yes- any signs of solidarity with Israel are not welcome. Anna Berg, writing in Times of Israel, has the disturbing report.

That is political correctness in action. In Sweden, it is the de facto religion. That is until Islam becomes the official state religion in about one more generation.
