The news report below appeared on Israeli television. It concerns the plight of Swedish Jews, who face increasing hostility and violence from the country’s Muslim immigrants:
There are several things worth noting about this report…
– – – – – – – – –
About halfway through you’ll encounter Mehmet Kaplan, a Muslim MP for the Green Party. Bear in mind the traditional Islamic duties of taqiyya and kitman when you listen to him answer questions — or not answer them.
You’ll notice that he absolutely refuses to discuss anti-Semitism unless he can pair it with “Islamophobia” — the two are held to be co-equals. And you’ll also see that he completely dodges the question of whether he condemns Jew-hatred when he talks to his fellow Muslims — 50,000 of them — in Malmö.
He’s very smooth, maybe not in the same league as Imam Rauf, but still quite slippery.
A little later in the film you’ll encounter what I call a “suicide Jew”. An American Jew who moved to Israel first and then Sweden, who says that her mission is to help overcome anti-Semitism so that Sweden and the rest of Europe can become fully multicultural. She sees Jews as the vanguard working towards this goal, helping Swedes realize their full multicultural destiny.
This is a delusion, and a dangerous one. If she were to achieve her goal, Europe and Sweden would become Islamic by default, because Muslims — who are the obvious demographic winners — would have it no other way. And then who does she think would be first in line to experience the scimitars of Europe’s new rulers?
Dangerously, fatally delusional.
Another woman interviewed — this one the president of the Stockholm synagogue, if I recall correctly — maintains that “Jews are entitled to live wherever they want.”
This is also a mistake, and asserting it is dangerous. Nobody has a right to live wherever they want outside of the country they were born in. Jews can move to Israel, or they can be exactly like the other people in their native country except that they go to a building on Saturday in sing songs in a funny language.
This is a hard lesson to learn, but an important one. It may not be easy or safe to be a Jew in Sweden today, but it doesn’t get any easier or safer if you claim entitlements that no one else has.
That way lies madness.
