On March 1, 2017, Europe’s most conscientious Christian foreign minister Margot Wallström of Sweden threatened Donald Trump administration that in response to latter’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.
