Sweden threatens to ban Israeli Jews

Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot WallströmOn March 1, 2017, Europe’s most conscientious Christian foreign minister Margot Wallström of Sweden threatened Donald Trump administration that in response to later’s visa ban on Muslims from seven Muslim-majority nations – Sweden might put a ban on Israeli Jews wishing to visit Sweden.

It is deeply regrettable that the United States will stop people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the country, given the incendiary and aggressive nature of Trump’s new immigration ban, we want to ban Israelis from entering our country,” she said in a statement.

The federal judge James Robert who halted president Donald Trump’s travel ban had stated in his ruling that no one from the seven countries targeted in Trump’s order has been arrested for extremism in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Professor Charles Kurzman (University of North Carolina) claimed in February 2013 that Muslim terrorism doesn’t even count for 1 percent of the 180,000 murders in the US since 9/11.

In 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu had called FM Margot Wallstrom stupid for demanding an independent probe into Zionist regime’s extrajudicial executions of Palestinians.

Sweden’s foreign minister also blamed the Zionist regime for over-reacting to the recognition of Palestine and that Israel’s rhetoric directed against those States who recognized Palestine had crossed all limits.

Sweden became the first European nation to recognized Palestinian state in October 2014.

Wallström stressed that Sweden was supportive of peace between Israel and Palestine but that it is sharply opposed to Israeli policies. She commented on Israeli’s aggressive policies and the negative impact of Israel’s posturing on the peace process.

Israel has been extremely aggressive. They have continued with their illegal Jewish settlement policies, they have continued demolition of Palestinian properties, they have continued their occupation policies which entail a humiliation of Palestinians, which makes the process difficult,” she said.

Wallström has lead her ruling party to say no to joining NATO against the so-called “Russian threat”. For her stand, European Organized Jewry has called her a US-hater.

In 2015, the Jewish media hailed Wallström as champion of women’s rights when she blasted Saudi ‘royals’ over mistreatment of Saudi women. It seems, Wallström is not aware of the fact that Saudi women are treated badly but not as bad as Jewish women in Israel.

  1. That last sentence made me ask myself “Can Saudi women walk the streets carrying an Uzi?” ^..^

  2. awd as a source? I would love to see israelis banned from everywhere until and ‘israel’ back to being called Palestine but awd is a dodgy website verging on satire.

    • I knew it’s a satire – but you’re wishing a Hell for Palestinians. If “Israelis are banned from everywhere” – that would make Jewish occupation permanent. Furthermore, renaming Israel as Palestine wouldn’t lessen plight of native people.

      For example, naming Pakistan as ‘Islamic Republic of Pakistan’ in 1947 didn’t make that country either Islamic or democratic. Pro-West secular military dictatorships (4) have ruled that country for half of its existence.

  3. remat1: You just misquoted the YNet article by stating, “According to Israeli media – I out of 8 female Jewish soldiers have reported being raped by senior male officers.”

    Not “raped!” I out of 8 were “…sexually harassed.” There is a MAJOR difference. Even 1 who is sexually harassed is too many. But it is not nearly the same a raped. We now have very stringent sexual harassment laws, rightfully making it much easier than before to charge someone with sexual harassment. So, there is much more awareness to the issue.

    YNet — “An extensive report that included thousands of IDF soldiers, officers, and NCOs has shown that one of every eight women soldiers reported that they were sexually harassed in 2013.”

    There is plenty to criticize about my government’s policies and about the norms in my country. But don’t misquote to find fault. No female soldiers were ever EVER given a gun (Uzi) for protection against sexual harassment or rape. Only those who travel through occupied territory or are in a position of command get weapons.
