Muslim demonstrators gathered in the southern Swedish city of Malmö to respond to President Trump’s announcement about Jerusalem. They reacted to the president’s decision by threatening both the Jews and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Threat against Jews during a demonstration in Malmö
About 200 people gathered and hurled angry curses against Arab leaders — and expressed threats of violence against Jews in Malmö last night.
On Saturday, Malmö police themselves chose to report the manifestation aimed at the (Jewish) group.

The demonstration was held after US President Donald Trump’s decision to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“We want our freedom back, and we’re going to shoot the Jews,” was said, among other things, reports Sweden’s Radio Malmöhus.
According to several people the radio spoke with, spontaneous gatherings took place on two consecutive days, Thursday and Friday, without any real responsibility. The demonstrations took place without permission, and the police have not received any applications for future assemblies, according to the police officer in charge in the South region.
“Patrol police have been in charge of the site, but received no complaints,” said Calle Persson, a police spokesman, to TT.
The municipal councilman Andreas Schönström (S), responsible for security issues in Malmö city, is angry after watching a film from yesterday’s demonstration that circulated on social media. The video shows a collection of people who shout slogans in unison and waving Palestinian flags.
“Unfortunately, we have this kind of expression on a regular basis, and I’m just as upset and utterly confounded every time I encounter it. The police must act directly to investigate this, and look particularly to determine whether it can be judged as being hate against a group [hets mot folkgrupp].”
The police have not received any notifications in connection with the demonstrations. However, according to Calle Persson, what was said could be classified as an unlawful threat to a group.
“Overall, we look at it seriously. It may be a call for people to commit crimes.”
The anti-Semitism in Malmö has been widely reported, and Calle Persson believes there is tension.
“There is a latent threat to Jews in Malmö, and when it comes to the Middle East, the threat picture becomes more relevant. But there are currently no general threats directed against a person or assembly.
Will you have any surveillance of Möllevångstorget tonight?
“We have not received any application for approval. But it is possible that we will look at it anyway. We routinely patrol Möllevångstorget on Saturday night,” says Calle Persson.
“Otherwise, we also rely on the public to call if something happens.”
On Saturday, Malmö police themselves chose to report the demonstration on the Jerusalem issue this week aimed at a group of people.
