Official: Sweden Joins Islamic Axis of Evil

From Haaretz.

Foreign Ministry Director-General Ron Prosor on Thursday summoned Swedish Ambassador to Israel Robert Rydberg to clarify Stockholm's decision to withdraw from a NATO international air force exercise because of Israel's participation, as well as reports that the Scandinavian country was planning to grant visas to two Hamas representatives.

Sweden called off its participation in the air force exercises to take place in Italy next month because of the involvement of the Israel Air Force in the drills.

Prosor told Rydberg that those who do not see Israel as a legitimate peacekeeping force could not be surprised that Israel does not view them as having legitimate involvement in the Middle East peace process.

He told the ambassador that Israel had received reports that Sweden intended to be the first European state to grant visas to Hamas officials, which would be seen as bestowing legitimacy on a terrorist organization.

Prosor replied that the envoy's remarks were "insulting and unacceptable."

One government source said, "The lack of sympathy for Israel in Sweden is out of proportion. Some government ministers spearhead the most anti-Israel approach in all of Europe, and particularly in Scandinavia. In meetings between senior Israelis and Swedish ministers, the Swedes refuse to listen to Israel's positions."

National Religious Party Chairman MK Zevulun Orlev, called Sweden's decision anti-Semitic, saying, "Just a day after the commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day, an enlightened nation has risen and surrendered to the Islamic axis of evil."
[my emphasis]


Clearly this is proof that anti-Semitism is not only wrong but also logically inconsistent. After all, they seem to have the same idiotic backbenchers in parliament as we have over here... Who is this Orlev nutcase?

It's another example of Israel's "shining light unto other nations", I guess...

Just to answer you question,
Orlev is a loud mouth Politician -

Northern attitude !

A while ago, Sweden caught two official Israeli agents operating on its territory with fake swedish identities and it provoked a diplomatic incident between the two countries. Before that, an art exhibit in Sweden depicting the suffering of Palestinians was physically assaulted by the ambassador of Israel...

There is a long standing tradition for tolerance in Sweden and I must say a long standing tradition for intolerance in the other country.

Raoul Wallenberg was swedish, Olof Palme was swedish...I am moving to Sweden, the last rampart against intolerance...

Yeah sure….
I guess Swedes are blond Aryan types…which naturally makes them suspect of being “anti-Semitic” whatever that means!
Throw the A mud-word at Israel’s opponents: that will surely stick and avoid addressing the real issues such as the illegal occupation of stolen lands or the ethnic cleansing of entire villages and the burning of countless churches and mosques by Tsahal.

God bless Yahweh’s glorious citizen-soldiers
The Almighty’s eternal shalom be upon them or something

Please let me know Where I can find "the burning of countless churches and mosques by Tsahal."? - do you know where they are? I would love to go see them my self!

or maybe you are thinking of the synagogues that Jordanians and Palestinias have burned and destroyed in the past century.?

Dear Oleh,
Since its creation in 1948, Israel has destroyed hundreds of ancient churches and monasteries in Gallilea, Akko, Jaffa, Safed and Jerusalem.

See article below for some of Tsahal's more recent anti-Christian activities

Victorino:I have to agree with Oleh!
The ONLY ones destroying religious places off worship belonging to others in the middle east is the muslims!
