Sweden, with a population of 9.5 million, annually received over 160,000 asylum applications and the country is expected to take as many as 190,000 refugees, or two per cent of the population, in 2016.
And its politicians of the Left are adopting the appropriate Jew-hatred. John Hinderaker:
In January, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom accused Israel of “extrajudicial executions” of Palestinians–apparently those who were in the act of perpetrating terrorist attacks–and called for an investigation. Yesterday, Sweden’s housing minister, Mehmet Kaplan, resigned after video emerged of him saying that “Israelis treat Palestinians in a way that is very like that in which Jews were treated during Germany in the 1930s.”
To cap off the trifecta, earlier today Sweden’s Deputy Prime Minister, Åsa Romson, came under fire for her comments on Kaplan’s resignation:
Romson said: “He [Kaplan] has been chairman for Swedish Young Muslims in tough situations like around the September 11 accidents and similar.”
Ms. Romson refused to back down or retract her characterization of the September 11 attacks as “accidents.” She explained:
Romson later defended her comment, saying: “The ‘accident’ [of 9/11] is that we ended up with a very harsh debate on integration and how society grows with different religions side by side, and the discrimination that followed.”
So Romson belongs to the school that holds that the big problem with Islamic terrorism is that it might give people a bad impression of Islam.
A civilisation committing suicide. Right before your eyes.
