Jew-Hatred in Sweden: First EU country to recognize “Palestinian” Terror State

On the eve of the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. The antisemites of Sweden, who have all but given up and handed their country over to Islamic supremacists, seek to impose the same on the Jewish people.

Sweden has, in fact, evolved into more of an Islamic state than a Western one. Recent news reports show crushing weakness and dhimmitude in the wake of violent Muslim agitation.

Their response to the jihad raging on their streets is, “We will have to live with the shootings.”

Jews are openly beaten in the streets in Sweden by Muslims.

Muslim politicians in Sweden have called Jews apes and pigs.

Swedish police are ambushed and attacked by Muslim mobs. Police are beaten by Muslim gangs.  Regularly.

Swedes are beaten with iron pipes for displaying the Israel flag.

Muslims torch cars, stone police and riot across cities in Sweden.

The Islamic State in Sweden has vowed, “Until the day we die, we will engage in war against Sweden and Europe.”

“Truly catastrophic” plots have been thwarted in Sweden. Are they hoping to make a deal with the devil?

Muslims have set up non-go, sharia zones in Sweden.

A politician who spoke critically of Islam had a bomb planted in his car.

Why is Sweden recognizing the annihilationist movement against the Jews? What exactly is Sweden recognizing and sanctioning? The jihad against the Jews.

This is surrender to jihad. In April of this year, the Swedes criminalized criticism of Islam in accordance with the sharia. Now this.

Sweden’s new dhimmi Prime Minister said, “The two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to co-exist peacefully. Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine.” When have the Muslims in Gaza, Judea or Samaria (the mythical “Palestinians”) ever said they would recognize the Jewish state? The very existence of the state of Israel is deeply offensive to devout Muslims.

There are two states, Israel and Jordan.

PA urges others in Europe to follow suit; US calls such a step ‘premature’

Sweden’s new government is set to recognize the State of Palestine, in a move that will make it the first member of the European Union to do so.

During his inaugural speech Friday, Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said “the conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law.”“The two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to co-exist peacefully. Sweden will therefore recognize the state of Palestine,” he added.

He didn’t say when or how that would happen.

Several European countries including Hungary, Slovakia and Romania have given their recognition of Palestine as a state but did so before they became members of the EU.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to ask the UN Security Council to vote on a resolution that would seek an Israeli withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines in a timeframe of two years.

In November 2012, the UN General Assembly voted to upgrade Palestine’s status to “non-member observer state.”

PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki welcomed Lofven’s announcement and called on other European Union countries to follow suit.

“In the name of the Palestinian people and the Palestinian leadership, we thank and salute the Swedish position,” Malki said in a statement.

He said the only other Western European countries that have recognized a Palestinian state are Malta and Cyprus. Some Eastern European countries did so during the Cold War.

US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psakia said the US looks forward to working with the new government of Sweden — a close partner — but called international recognition of a Palestinian state “premature.”

“We believe that the process is one that has to be worked out through the parties to agree on the terms of how they’ll live in the future of two states living side-by-side,” she said.

Lofven has built a left-leaning minority government of Social Democrats and Greens after winning Parliamentary elections last month.

He tapped former European Commissioner Margot Wallstrom to be foreign minister, while Magdalena Andersson becomes finance minister and Peter Hultqvist will head the Defense Ministry. All are Social Democrats.

Asa Romson, leader of the Greens, the junior coalition partner, became vice-prime minister and minister for climate and environment.

The coalition is expected to struggle to push its agenda through Parliament.
