A swedish blogger is fired for supporting Israel

Posted by avideditor on January 15, 2009

What is wrong now with Sweden? It looks like their MSM just as delusional as the swedish government.

Ah, Diversity: Swedish Blogger Fired for Supporting Terrorism

… by which I mean, daring to support the evil Zionist State.  

Remind me again—Wasn’t the whole notion of having a “freedom of expression” born in the West?

To my friends in Israel and to Israel, my friend.

As I understand it, an article on my case has been published in Maariv today.

I haved dared to blog about the right for Israel to exist and about the attempts by Hamas, a terror organisation, to try to destroy Israel by means of aggressive war – jihad. In doing this I have made use of my constitutional right of expression and opinion.

The Swedish Government hold that same positions: Israel have a right to exist. Hamas is a terror organisation.

My employer did not, however, find it appropriate for me to hold these opinions and to express them publicly. I have, because of my opinions, been forced to leave my employment.

Sweden: Muslim woman receives $4,000 in damages for having to remove face veil

Posted by avideditor on April 14, 2008

Wow it looks like the dhimmis have taken over the Swedish legal system as well as the foreign ministers.

Sweden: Muslim woman receives $4,000 in damages for having to remove face veil: ”

Cultural Capitulation Update: never mind the possibility of deception, and the concomitant ease of committing crimes, made possible by the face veil. Self-defense does not trump multiculturalism.

‘Muslim woman receives damages for headscarf slight,’ from The Local (thanks to Marked Manner):

A 20-year-old Malmö woman has been awarded damages after she was asked to leave a bus for wearing a veil.

The woman has received 25,000 kronor ($4,203) from public bus service operator Arriva after an agreement was reached with the Ombudsman against ethnic discrimination (DO), according to local newspaper Sydsvenskan.

The woman was instructed to leave the bus in the southern Swedish city when she refused to remove the niqab veil that she was wearing as part of her sartorial hijab headdress. The niqab covers the entire face except for eyes.

The bus driver had asked the woman to remove her niqab so that he could identify her, however the woman was using a buss pass that did not require identification.

‘The bus driver has not acted according to Arriva’s values. There is no doubt where the fault lies and this is most regrettable. We are happy to pay out the money to make up for it,’ said Jan Wildau at Arriva.

Swedish foreign minister compares Netanyahu to Hamas

Posted by avideditor on April 13, 2008

The Swedes should kick this mad man out of his post. This moral equivalency has gone to far. Netanyahu believes in protecting the Jewish people, while Hamas worships the culture of death and would gladly kill all its own people as long as it kill the jews. The european media is partly to blame for this because of their extremely bias coverage. But I still hold the responsibility to Sweden to remove this man. I am boycotting the country until this mad man is forced to step down. I recommend others do the same. Feel free to cross post this. Anyone willing to boycott sweden with me just say yes as a comment.

Swedish foreign minister compares Netanyahu to Hamas: “

Israeli diplomats are furious over a radio interview yesterday with
Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt in which Bildt compares Israeli
opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu with Hamas.

In
an interview with a Swedish radio station, Bildt was asked how it was
possible for Israel to make peace with the Palestinians while Hamas
controlled the Gaza Strip.

‘It is possible to make peace without
Hamas the same way it is possible to make peace without Netanyahu on
the Israeli side,’ Bildt said.

Israeli diplomatic officials
called the comparison ‘chutzpah’ and said that Bildt had a long history
of making pro-Palestinian statements.

‘It is a horrible and
stupid statement that displays complete ignorance about the Middle
East,’ a Foreign Ministry official told The Jerusalem Post. ‘He clearly
does not understand the difference between the leader of an Israeli
political party and a group that is engaging in the terror that
threatens Europe as much as Israel.’

While the comparison
is odious, I’m more surprised to see ‘Israeli diplomats’ coming to
Netanyahu’s defense than I am to see that Bildt made the comments. Both
Bildt and Sweden have made comments like this before. Sweden is a member of something called the Negotiations Support Unit,
a group of European countries who are encouraging the ‘Palestinians’
not to compromise on the ‘right of return,’ and instead to flood the
state of Israel with ‘refugees’ so as to do demographically what they
could not do militarily. Other members of this group (in case you are
wondering) include Britain, Norway, Denmark and Holland. And Sweden was
where an Israeli ambassador would have been prosecuted – but for his
diplomatic status – for unplugging an ‘art exhibit’ honoring a suicide bomber.

Netanyahu,
on the other hand, has been lambasted in the Knesset and the media here
recently for allowing a wealthy Jew to pay the costs of his vacation  public relations trip to England
two summers ago in which he spent the entire time speaking on behalf of
the government’s conduct of the war in Lebanon (before a lot of people
realized how badly the government was running the war, Netanyahu was
playing the loyal opposition). No ‘Israeli diplomats’ have come to
Netanyahu’s defense. Only Manchester millionaire Joshua Rowe has.
