Explosion targets Malmo Jewish community center

An explosion targeted a Jewish community center in Malmo, Sweden on Friday morning. No one was hurt.
“There has been an explosion. Something has detonated – we are certain of that,” police officer Erik Liljenström said to local paper Sydsvenskan.
While damage had been done to the front door, the building itself was not damaged.
Local police brought two men in for questioning after their car was seen by witnesses leaving the area at a high speed following the explosion.
The Jewish community in Malmö was previously the target of anti-Semitic attacks. Earlier this year, a rabbi was physically assaulted and in 2010, a group of Jews were attacked by Swedish Muslims during a peaceful protest in support of Israel.
In August, several hundred Kippah-wearing Jews and non-Jews marched in Stockholm in solidarity with Malmö's persecuted Jewish community.
Folks, it's time to leave....

Soon Malmo's mayor will call for yellow stars for the Jews so that they can be identified 'for their own protection'.

Time to leave Sweden, people. Multiculti has failed.

How do you know this particular attack was by by a Muslim? The url to the articles are not linked. Most attacks on Jews in Sweden are not by the 'multi culti' crowd. Knowing you neocons, you mean immigrant Muslims? Some yes, ususally when Israel is doing something wrong, but in candinavia, most attacks on Jews are by the natives. I've posted this before here, with links.


In Jan. 2010, when asked to explain why Jewish religious services often require heavy security or police protection, Reepalu claimed that the violence toward Malmo’s Jewish community originated from right-wing extremists, not Muslims.

Ilmar Reepalu, the mayor of Malmo, has repeatedly denied the existence of any sort of problem, telling the Sunday Telegraph that "there have not been any attacks on Jewish people."

Israel's actions are the cause of 'anti semitism' today. The Swedes and Europe in general particularly Scandinavia tend to sympatihise with Palestinians.

It's nto anti semitic to criticise Israel and the occupation. Israel is a rogue state in vioation of international law, responsible for millions of displaced Palestinians.

Of course the world will be angry, and whilst not condoning attacks on civilian Jews, this is the reason it happens.

The Swedes judge Israel by their own lofty standards, and Israel falls short.

Get off Palestinian land, and the

2009 Davis CupIn 2009, Malmö hosted a tennis match between Israel and Sweden during the Davis Cup. Due to "safety reasons", no fans were allowed to enter the stadium and watch the tennis game. However, numerous Swedish politicians had called for the match to be cancelled due to their pro-Palestinian views and the aftermath of Operation Cast Lead, with this idea being discarded because the Swedish side would have had an automatic forfeit loss, and therefore the team's elimination, from the Cup tournament. A plan to move the match from Malmö to Stockholm failed due to logistical issues and a lack of time. In the end, Israel defeated and eliminated the Swedish team by a 3–2 score. The match drew more than 6000 Pro-Palestine protesters, making it one of the largest demonstrations in Swedish history. More than 100 protesters were detained as several hundred Arab nationalists and Left-wing militants clashed with more than 1000 policemen that were guarding the stadium.[20] Malmö was banned from hosting any further Davis Cup matches in the aftermath of the riots.[21] The city was also fined $25,000 (lowered to $5,000 on appeal) and forced to pay an additional $15,000 to recoup revenues lost when fans were barred from the match.

[edit] Ilmar ReepaluSwedish newspapers and political leaders as well as Israeli media have criticised Malmö's mayor, Ilmar Reepalu (a Social Democrat), for denying the rise of Antisemitism in Malmö. .[22][23][24][25][26]

When confronted with the issue during an interview in 2010 with Andreas Lovén, a journalist in Skånska Dagbladet, Reepalu states: “We accept neither Zionism nor anti-Semitism. They are extremes that put themselves above other groups, and believe they have a lower value." He also criticized the Malmo's Jewish community for its support for Israel, stating that “I would wish for the Jewish community to denounce Israeli violations against the civilian population in Gaza. Instead it decides to hold a [pro-Israeli] demonstration in the Grand Square [of Malmö], which could send the wrong signals.”[27] Jewish leaders responded that the demonstration Reepalu was referring to was "pro-peace rally" arranged by the Jewish Community in Malmö "which came under attack from members of a violent counter demonstration" and accused Reepalu of "suggesting that the violence directed towards us is our own fault simply because we didn’t speak out against Israel."[28]

Reepalu has denied that, apart from at the infamous demonstration, there had been any violent attacks on Jews in the city citing police figures. Although the same police figures show that hate crimes against Jews have doubled over the last year.[29][30][31] In January,when asked to explain why Jewish religious services often require security guards and even police protection, Reepalu claimed that the violence directed toward Malmö’s Jewish community is from right-wing extremists, and not Muslims.[32]

In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph in February 2010, Reepalu was asked about reports that anti-semitism in Malmo has increased to the point that some of its Jewish residents are (or are considering) moving to Israel. Reepalu again denied that there has been any violence directed at Jews in Malmo, stating that:
