Sweden and Norway and Anti-Semitism

Hat tip Gatestone Institute and Shirley

"On January 12, the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten published an article about Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and his senior adviser: "The Jew Kushner reportedly pushed for David M. Friedman as the new ambassador to Israel", Aftenposten wrote. The newspaper had later to apologize for calling Kushner "the Jew".

I write a lot about the goings-on in Sweden, but there are also problems in Norway when it comes to anti-semitism. While I assign a major part of Europe's anti-semitism to Muslim migrants who have brought old hatreds with them, the Europeans are also to blame for tolerating intolerance in the very name of tolerance. Both countries have jumped on the anti-Israel bandwagon, in my view, largely to please their restive Muslim populations.

Giulio Meotti, an Italian journalist who writes for the Gatestone Institute, wrote a disturbing essay last month on these two Scandinavian countries. It appears that some of their attitudes go beyond mere opposition to Israel.

Pretty disgusting, eh? Especially from a couple of societies that always ;like to lecture the US and Israel when it comes to human rights. As the few remaining Jews leave these two countries, all I can say to the Swedes and Norwegians is, "Enjoy your new society".
