US Jewish centre seeks ban on Malmö mayor

US Jewish centre seeks ban on Malmö mayor

Published: 14 Oct 2010 09:15 GMT+02:00
Updated: 14 Oct 2010 09:15 GMT+02:00

US Jewish organisation the Simon Wiesenthal Center has called for the disqualification of Malmö mayor Ilmar Reepalu from nominees for the World Mayor 2010 prize, citing his comments in the spring regarding the city's Jewish population.

Malmö mayor Ilmar Reepalu has been nominated on the 25 person short-list for the international title of World Mayor 2010.

But Reepalu's nomination has been roundly criticised by Los Angeles-based Jewish organization the Simon Wiesenthal Centre.

The centre argued that Reepalu should be ruled out of contention "due to what he has said and done to the Jews of Malmö" in an open letter signed by Shimon Samuels, the centre's director for international relations, to the City Mayors and World Mayor coordinator, Tann vom Hove.

Samuels argues that Reepalu's nomination contradicts the qualities highlighted by the award "to foster good relations between communities from different cultural, racial and social backgrounds".

Samuels then goes on to cite Reepalu's comments in response to a series of articles on Malmö's Jews in the Skånska Dagbladet daily in the spring.

"When interviewed, Mayor Reepalu blamed the situation on the Jews themselves as the community did not 'distance itself from Israel'," wrote Samuels.

The letter from the centre also refers to interviews given by Ilmar Reepalu with the UK Sunday Telegraph in which he appeared to deny that Jews had been subjected to attacks and harassment, and referred to further comments wherein Reepalu proceeded to question if he was the victim of an "Israel lobby" smear campaign.

The Centre argued that "a Mayor who fails to stand up for all his citizens cannot be a role model and what Reepalu has said and done against Sweden’s Jews, especially in Malmo, should disqualify his candidacy for World Mayor 2010."

Ilmar Reepalu has in his defence argued that he felt that his comments had been misrepresented by Skånska Dagbladet, later arguing that he does not feel that Malmö Jews have any connection to, or responsibility for, the Israel-Palestine conflict in the Middle East.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre in Los Angeles claims the support of over 400,000 US Jewish families and describes itself as "one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations."

The World Mayor prize is awarded annually by the City Mayors project which was set up in 2003. Previous winners include Cape Town's Helen Zille, Melbourne's John So, and Athens' Dora Bakoyannis.

I do not see what a so called religious organisation should have to do with deciding whether or not a mayor should be in contention for an award.

Come to think of it, i would have thought that this particular organisation would have more important issues to deal with, considering the purported 'plight' of its people in its own homeland. ?
10:52 October 14, 2010 by Nemesis
I agree with the Simon Wiesenthal Center on this one.

Going by what Ilmar Reepalu has said in the past about jews living in malmö, he definately has a serious streak of anti-semitism and is not fit to be mayor in a multi-cultural city.

@ Marko2010S

There is only 17 million jews in the world. Half that number can barely hold onto a stretch of mostly barren land in the middle east, so how could they rule the world.

6 million Jews were put in gas chambers during World War 2 with the full support of the Grand Mufti of Egypt.

If Jews ruled the world, it would not be possible to have marched them into gas chambers and pass laws banning them from education, work and from basically existing.

After people like yourself has finished killing of the Jews who is next on your list?

Hitler said his war was against the Jews. Yet the biggest group of people that died under Hitler in Concentration camps, fighting at the front, being bombed, etc, were Germans. The exact same group he promised to put at the pinnacle of everything.

Whoever is promising you that you will be in charge and that all problems will be sorted out if Jews are all dead, most likely plans to kill you last.

Maybe you might want to think about that.

jews rule the world,the only country who is not afraid of the UN resolutions,oh yeah they were victims during the WW2,now they have the power to decide wich mayor can go to the world mayor prize

they ll always act like victims no matter what they do
11:24 October 14, 2010 by asian369
@Nemesis.... your sympathy seeking arguments are as usually meant to divert the wrong doings of jewish community. There is absoultely no doubt that jews are powerful, ruthless and missuse their powerful position in all possible manner.
11:34 October 14, 2010 by RobinHood
It doesn't matter who has raised this objection; it is valid.

Mayor Reepalu holds obnoxious views, and is unable to set them aside when he carries out his role as mayor. He is unfit for office, and certainly unfit to be on a short list for the World Mayor 2010 prize. No doubt the organisers will drop him like a hot brick when they learn about his disgusting opinions.

Mayor Reepalu was not misquoted as he now says. Skånska Dagbladet placed all its tapes and notes online. Telling the truth is also a necessary prerequisite for being eligible for a prize. The mayor fails on that one too.

He really isn't much of a man, let alone much of a mayor.
11:37 October 14, 2010 by boby
Took very little time for the antisematic islamofachist dickheads to come out of the hole they normally habitat.

Jews are powerful as individuals, yes, they are normally successful and well educated. Jews are on top of Nobel prizes, litterature and many fields of science.

As for Reepalu, he should be banned from entering US or any other country that respects Western standards. He should go and hug with his friends in Iran instead, I am sure they will give him a few prizes.

@Nemises;

Now you understand what I mean about Racism. The same people who are bashing muslims constantly on this web site, are the same people who are bashing Jews now.

@Marko2010

I am defending your rights constantly and will not stop, however, I would love it if you defend Jewish rights also. You know how it feels when your people and religion is bashed, the Jews feel the same.

This is seperate from how one feels about this particular story.

Its just that they have been more successful in coming together and fight Racism. Soon, with every ones help, the days of muslim bashing will also be a thing of the past.
12:00 October 14, 2010 by foxpur
The point here is: The mayor has not been a model person to win the prize based on the rules of qualification to win.

Based on that alone he shouldn't be eligable based on his past year and comments.

I know the mayor has tried to patch things up with his Jewish community, and that's commendable in itself, but to have had the thought process that caused the problems in the first place shows he is not qualified for a award.

I am not Jewish btw, so no personal interest in this... just from a observational view.
12:11 October 14, 2010 by Tutu
Nemesis, you are wrong there. The Jews are the richest in the world and you will find them in any striviing economy including US, UK and small Sweden. It is not about population it is about influence and covenant they have with God.

If you put it on ratio they also live longer than any race in the world. U must also note that they are surrounded by countries that do not like them, yet they can not overrun them.

I am not Jew but facts are facts. You might hate them how u wish, but they control the world even Obama

@Nemises #3

Deep down you know the truth very well. So, just cut the crap, and stop bullshiting around.

Clear headed people know very well the relationship between: Money, Media and Power. Anyone can list for you zillion names of people (Jews) whom are extremely rich, controlling the media and have prestigious/powerful positions.

Of course, trolls like you will keep on dragging useless and old stories such as Hitler's stuff in order to influence and deceive the public opinion. But anyways, I am not expecting anything good out of Swedes nor the West in general because they (The majority!) are hypocrites.

@cowboykodp #8

Is there anything wrong with my post#1?

I think I just stated some well-known facts, and I would kindly and cordially request you to go to (http://www.thelocal.se/29490/20101007/) and read my post#73 in order to understand what I think about Jews.

"Soon, with every ones help, the days of muslim bashing will also be a thing of the past. "

Muslim bashing will cease, when they cease blowing things things up and stop attempting to colonise and convert the world and trying to rid us of free speech. I'm not a fan of the any of the abrahamic myths, but at least christianity has gotten past it's dark ages, islam is slapbang in the middle of theirs.

This mayor should be sacked.
12:38 October 14, 2010 by Puffin
Interesting that the Simon Wiesenthal Centre chooses to take this action against a person who themself came to Sweden as a persecuted refugee

Reepalus family fled Estonia sailing accross the Baltic in in an open boat - So it's somewhat ironic
12:39 October 14, 2010 by Swedesmith
The mayor should be rewarded for his service. How about a two week, all expenses paid stay at a luxurious resort in Rosengård?
12:46 October 14, 2010 by europeman31
strange to see the illogical sympathy with Jews who are terrorizing innocents in whole world and now to Sweden as well .

wake up Swede, how the hell they can interfere us and tell what and how we should do ?

i asked to put their power in their pocket , we the people have our voice and we will speak against them ..
12:48 October 14, 2010 by engagebrain
If jews ruled the world, why would they bother with a dry rocky bit of Mediterranean coast surrounded by religious lunatics ?

It is because jews don't rule the world, a world that has offered them no protection from persecution, that Israel came into being.

The racist nonsense on this site should embarrass any sentient human.
12:50 October 14, 2010 by Nemesis
@ Puffin

Then Reepalus should know full well what the Jews in Malmö escaped and now what they are putting up with.

He should be taking a stand against intolerance, not supporting it. He is a mayor. He is supposed to try to defend all of his citizens, not just those he uses as voting fodder.
12:53 October 14, 2010 by idialogue
I think you all are wrongly relating Israel, Zionist and Jews. No doubt Israel is a Jewish state (as their Constitution said) ironically several jews are against Israel.

For me the above organization are more Pro-Israel, Pro Zionist , not Jewish..

may be this distinction is an eye wash..
13:11 October 14, 2010 by Kevin Harris
@Swedesmith

Two weeks in Rosengård for the mayor. Good idea. I have often enjoyed imagining our leaders actually living in the societies they have created for us.

If the good mayor did stay two weeks in Rosengård, his car would be burned, his wife insulted (or worse), his children shot at in school, and he would be discriminated against on account of the colour of his skin.

He would be back in his rowing boat heading back to Estonia chop chop. And would we miss him?
13:20 October 14, 2010 by idialogue
@Kevin Rosengård is in Israel ? so that such may happen to him ..
13:44 October 14, 2010 by RememberAisha
Today is such a weird day, I totally agree with Namsis AND cowboykodp!

I dont think that has ever happened before, and it does give me hope that people can work together... and that maybe the idiots have been buried - then I noticed Maroko's posts... and sadly realized they have not been buried but still wagging they tongues spewing ignorance and hate.
13:46 October 14, 2010 by theibmsstate2000
dont think jews are powerful than sweden, sweden is not africa ....sweden has big land high level technology.muslims are more in power now a days.jews are only creating problems.this is also very sure jews will be completely Finnish one day,jews didnt learn lesson from world war 2.so soon jews same lesson like world war 2.jews dont have right to interfere in sweden matters.
14:06 October 14, 2010 by Rebel
Strange, to hear the Swedish media tell it the only people out there who are supposed to hold nasty views were the Swedish Democrats. Oh wait, they support Israel. Better not tell that to the good mayor or he will think there is a conspiracy between the SD and Israeli Intelligence to make him look bad.
14:32 October 14, 2010 by gogo99
This racist antisemitic mayor should be banned. I support the act by Simon Wiesenthal Center.
15:05 October 14, 2010 by engagebrain
re theibmsstate2000

Jews have as much right in Sweden and in the world to express their opinions - if the mayor is racist, then saying it is allowed in a free country where free speech is protected.

As to the lesson that jews should learn from world war 2, the obvious lesson is that racists can turn into mass murderers. Another lesson is that very few people help those being killed and no country offered jews somewhere to escape to. Jews justify having their own country because when jews are persecuted there will always be somewhere for them to go.
15:32 October 14, 2010 by cowboykodp
@Oranecake;

Here we go again.... Another scared, little man.

For the zillionth time, Muslims don't kill or blowup themselves, or do all the other terrorist acts. Criminals, who pretend to be muslim do this. Why is that so hard to get through your thick sculls. Is it because you CHOOSE not to believe that???

As far as taking over Europe and Sweden, that is laughable. I really don't think Europe is so weak in their culture or convictions to ever let that happen. Its pure fantasy on your parts.

I also invite everyone to take out a map and look at the size of Rosengård, compared to the size of Sweden. Are we exaggerating a bit????

@RememberAisha;

How does it feel to wake up and smell the roses? A bigot is a bigot. If you want to be on the side of treating all with compassion and humanity, including Jews, Muslims, Christians, Gays, Gypsies, The Poor, The Handicapped, Women, etc..., you are always welcome.

If you want to change the world, start with yourself. Its all about KARMA.
15:49 October 14, 2010 by Marko2010S
It is weird and hilarious at the same time how there many people (Around the world!) feel deeply offended when they are being called (Even mistakenly!) Jews. "Hey, you JEW".

I wonder why many people (Around the world!) consider word "Jew" a bad insult. I am sure there is a reason behind that.

* Any good-Jew out there capable to tell us the truth?

I personally think that the satanic state "Israel" played a major role in that, that's why we see some Jews (Around the world!) burning the Israeli passport in front of TV cameras.
16:09 October 14, 2010 by rrabbit
go to you tu****be and watch the video with title "How the Jews Treat Christians in Israel? "
17:50 October 14, 2010 by bolababu
I am not a Moslem but I find this religious "love triangle" very interesting; The Jews killed Jesus, father of Christians, European Christians gassed 6 million Jews and would have continued towards extermination but for American Christians. American christians conquered European Christians to save the Jews. Now Christians and Jews both fight against Islam that supposedly have been innocent through all of these.
18:05 October 14, 2010 by Nemesis
@ bolababu

A few points.

Jesus, was actually killed by some Italians known as Romans at the time. They were not christian.

The people who stopped the nazi's were not just christian. Most of the Russian soldiers who did the majority of the fighting, were atheist. Units in the British army from colonial India were Hindu, Muslim and Buddist.

American christians did not conquer Europe. The USA helped to liberate part of Western Europe along with many allies.
19:20 October 14, 2010 by theibmsstate2000
well jews are not in population. chirstian are first then muslims, but after few years muslims population will be more in the world.in germany and france more people are becoming muslims.i dont think about jews.....

"to foster good relations between communities from different cultural, racial and social backgrounds".

Seems like by the standards of the award alone without any partisan input, he should be out of the running.
20:01 October 14, 2010 by saar
I don't think the mayor is anti-Semite. It just there are very few jews in Malmö and the whole bunch of muslims. So, he wants to be reelected. NYC mayor courts jews, Reepalu courts muslims. Politics as usual.

00:41 October 15, 2010 by Sam1
This is Sweden!!! People...Any extremism or attacks or abuse on other religions no matter what should be treated very seriously and even deportation for the extremist persons.

If Muslims discriminate Jews Police should take matters seriously because its a democratic country even a small racist prejudised comment should be taken seriously..Jews or Muslim or Christians or Gays or what so ever non believers should all have same rights and respect.

No one should force his views on the other..

Muslims should stops this kind of behaviour otherwise go to Saudi and do what they like there...in the deserts. In Sweden they should respect the laws fully.

Any mayor with Religious or racistic inclination should be removed.

I LOVE threads about anything to do with Jews here on The Local because they expose Muslims as the RACIST HYPOCRITES that they really are. If Muslims were smart, they would shut their mouths when the topic of Jews comes up, so as not to expose themselves as the very thing (RACIST) that they spend mosts of their time calling everyone else.

But expecting a Muslim to hold back their emotions and contain themselves when talking about Jews is as futile as expecting them to be able to contain themselves and NOT rape that good-looking Swedish girl walking down the street, or expecting them to be calm and NOT start killing each other when someone draws a cartoon of Muhammad, or expecting them to contain themselves and NOT commit violent crimes.

Thank you, Muslims, for once again exposing yourselves for what you really are and proving that Sverigedemokraterna are actually correct about you all.
06:52 October 15, 2010 by engagebrain
re Da Goat

So do tell, which Jewish bankers financed the holocaust ?

You forgot to mention than Obama, the Pope, the Clintons, Jesus, the Dalai Lama are all Jewish.

"Thank you, Muslims, for once again exposing yourselves for what you really are and proving that Sverigedemokraterna are actually correct about you all. "

Hey @Carnitas,

I heard the SD are setting up divisions in Arizona, California and Texas. Their plan is to deport all Mexicans from the US, back to Mexico. This includes 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation Mexicans. As you well know ALL Mexicans are rapists,dug dealers, thieves, and criminals. The jails are filled with them.

Good thing you are in Sweden, if you in fact are here.

How do we feel???
10:01 October 15, 2010 by Kevin Harris
When will this embarrasing old man resign? He made a terrible mistake that will haunt his career, and brings discredit to Malmö and Sweden as long as he is mayor.

How incredibly humiliating for him, and for Malmö, if the judges of the World Mayor 2010 competition publicly disbar him because of his anti-semitic beliefs. That is what they are under pressure to do right now, and not just by the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Reepalu's low opinions of the Jews in his city are going global.

Does Sweden, or the Social Democrats, have a mechanism for sacking an elected mayor because he brings disrepute to his city? Kick him out of the party at least.
10:07 October 15, 2010 by Nemesis
@ Kevin Harris

Reepalu has the support of the Social Democrats.
10:26 October 15, 2010 by Carnitas
Some huge differences. First of all, Mexicans go to the USA to WORK. Yep, W-O-R-K. There are no handouts from the US government to support them. They either work, die or go back to Mexico. Second, Mexicans don't bring a 2nd century lifestyle or religion with them. For the most part they respect women and don't beat their children. Nor do they try to force their lifestyle upon people in the Americans. Sure, there are plenty of Mexican criminals. But they aren't overrepresented in the crime statistics. And there is no constant threat of a terrorist attack upon the USA by any Mexican. The list of differences goes on and on.

When I left California I was thinking that there were way too many Mexicans there but Sweden would be lucky to have them rather than what they currently have.
10:53 October 15, 2010 by rybo1
I'm really tired of this anti-semetic line. The last time I checked the history of the Middle East, Arabs are Semites. So, who is anti-semetic, Israel or the Mayor of Malmö? The Wiesenthal Center is an organization is an organization that love to seek out people and destroy them in the name of anti-semitism. Let them look at themselves and Israel. I hope the Mayor succeeds and that the Wiesenthal center goes bankrupt.
11:15 October 15, 2010 by cowboykodp
@Carnitas;

Its not at all strange that you would think that about Mexicans in the US. However; the majority of non-hispanic population in the US differ with you. (wrongly I might add)

Again, your opinions are based on the fact that you have first hand experience with the Mexicans in the US and know their culture well.

Which brings us to your WRONG perception of the Muslims.

I find the vast majority of people from any religious or ethnic group to be law abiding, respectful of their host country and perfectly capable and willing to integrate.

Just as all cultures and religions have made the US the envy of the world, so too in time shall be the case in Europe and Sweden.

PS. On a side note, there are many Mexicans on welfare in the US. And if they are there legally and the laws allow that, then its all good.
12:26 October 15, 2010 by rrabbit
@rybo1 you are correct and i have been trying to exlain this right here on the local,Palestinians,Irakians (...) are semites wich is not the case of 90% of ISRAELIENS who are ashekenazis descedant.

This hypocrite was pro the Ships for Palestine, I agree with the Wiesentahl Centre.

Compared to Stalin, Hitler was a pussy, Stalin murdered 6 million in his homeland alone, with an estimated 4 -5 million more elsewhere in the USSR & Europe.

Pol Pot had a good go a murdering a few million of his beloved country men. The left are just as guilty as the right.
14:36 October 15, 2010 by absolut
And another thing: there were about 2000 concentration camps alone in Poland, because Hitler wanted to eradicate the whole of the Polish population.
15:57 October 15, 2010 by Nemesis
@ Alf Garnett & absolut

Precisely.

The jews are used as the excuse to start killing people, then the rest of us are next.

So many of them are blinded by hatred of jews to actually realise they could end up sharing the same fate as jews if people started to round them up again.

I wish some of them would open a history book covering 1920 to 1950 Germany. They would see that the jes were the excuse to get the killing started, but it quickly spread to every group in society.

People who want to exterminate a group, don't stop with that group, they continue until they are stopped or they wipe out most of the population.
16:07 October 15, 2010 by Britt-Marie7
As a Swede living abroad, I am horrified as to what is happening in Malmö regarding the Jewish people. How can the swedes allow the Jewish citizens to be chased out of a city that they have lived in since the 1940's. And how can a mayor say that he doesn't know anything about it? Unbelievable! He should be told to resign his position as mayor.

I have never heard of a single Jew who is offended to be called a Jew.

As for non-Jews, most wouldn't really care. The only ones who might feel offended are hateful antisemitic bigots like yourself.
20:41 October 15, 2010 by boby
@ Britt-Marie7

Reepalu know what is going on very well, he just chooses to ignore it, and support his Muslim voters.

Anyone who walks around the Malmo synagouge or kindergarten, and see the baricades and secutiry guards can understand what is going on.
21:37 October 15, 2010 by cowboykodp
@boby

If in fact Jews in Malmö feel scared, then its a shame. They have as much right to live in peace as anyone of any faith.

Muslims and Jews need to learn to get along and there is much the Muslims can learn from Jews, as they have experienced discrimination throughout the ages.

I think that this issue will make him think twice about his language and actions in the future.

As a Jew who moved here a few years ago, I have been shocked by the unsolicited invective hurled at me by Swedes, who wish to force me into unwanted conversations and absurd admissions. I can only say, without us, to whom would you give the Nobel Prize?

Here's a proposition for Jew bashers: If you are about to imminently benefit from the use any medical treatment (like the polio vaccine), technology, textbook, religious intuition (like monotheism), artistic creation, idea, language, or anything traceable to a Jewish source, I urge you with all my heart to permanently reject it and free yourself from its insidious grip.
11:15 October 16, 2010 by cowboykodp
@rufus.t.firefly

I am with you there buddy. We owe much to Jews, and Muslims in the way of scientific discoveries throughout history and contemporary times.

Unfortunately, people will be people, on both sides. Whether its Jew bashing or Muslim bashing. Each side feels they are better than the other side.

We now have a problem in Europe with these new "repackaged Racists" who have temporarily replaced their target from Jews to Muslims. I say temporarily, because when they are done (which I don"t foresee) , they will be back to their shameless universal racism.

On a positive note, Swedes had a chance to vote for the neo-nazi SD in the last election, but only 5.7% voted for them. That says a lot about Swedes. Even in Holland the Anti-immigrant group only got 15%.

I personally am not religious, but if everyone regardless of what religion they are, rejects these racists, then we will once and for all bury this crap.

Until the next generation, when undoubtedly a new group will be discriminated against.
11:34 October 16, 2010 by jimmyjames
Any person who knows history, has read extensively, and studied Jews from Zionism to Nazism knows that Jews have been run out of every single European country at one time or another. The reasons for wanting to get rid of them are always the same. We ( the masses of non-Jews) are always told by Jews that this is because of stereotypes, bigotry, and racism. However, the truth is the Jews are guilty of everything that is said about them for the most part. Jews veiw all "goyem"( non-Jews) as marks, prey, suckers, ect. They seriously believe that they are devine and chosen by GOD, therefore most definetly do not consider any non-Jew to be equal to them in any way what-so-ever. Jews view the goyem in much the same way as cattle. We are to be tended, herded, and ultimatly used for the "nourishment" of Jewry. If you doubt any of this please do some intensive reading and research for about 2-3 years. The truth is like a diamond ( another commodity totally controlled by Jews) alot of hard work goes into mining it.......and ons of worthless rock must be moved to get to it but once found its brightness can not be extinguished.

I am actually happy that you wrote the above post. I have been tirelessly explaining to people on this and other websites that your kind will always bash all groups of people regardless of their religion, color or creed.

Thanks buddy.

P.S. @AllRacistsWhoKnowWhoTheyAreButAreInDenial

I rest my case....

All the residants of Malmo know what is going on. Most pass every day by the synagouge (it in the center) and see the baricades. Most see the Rabi of the community being harrased in the street when he walks back home from the synagouge. Yet, none of them will do anything. But when SD is voted, thousands will go to the street and say 'we are ashamed'.

The left in Sweden has long forgotten its roots. It became anti-west, anti-jewish and anti USA, and pro muslims and sick places like north korea.

Strange isn't it? As soon as you make an honest statement about any Jewish activity the "anti-Semite" card gets played. You know for a much maligned and hard done by people they aren't doing too badly. So best at keep a little silent and let those that are doing it tough in Palestine and the West Bank have a voice.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre - a oneway 'Jewish' human rights organization. I wouldn't place too much weight on what they have to say about this, they are known for taking statements out of context and not be afraid of 'flavoring' their own. An organization that for all sense and purpose paints all issues in 'them vs us' is not to be taken too seriously IMO. People like Shimon Samuels and Mark Weitzman obviously don't see it but they are part of a biased organization and should lodge their complaints directly to whomever they disagree with instead of using subversive influence through public media channels.

In a way I can understand their frustration with a lot of private and public figures in Sweden because our country cannot be thrown into the 'shame camp' and hence most Swedes have no problem openly stating their discontent with e.g. the Israeli state's treatment of Palestinians. Remember that a real friend will not be afraid to criticize.

Playing the antisemite card? When was the last time a "goy" was afraid to walk in a Jewish neighborhood? When was the last time a "goy" was harassed by a Jew?

When was the last time a Jew blew himself up killing as many "goys" as possible? From what I've read here, Jewish centers in Malmo have barricades and constant police protection. Protection from whom? How many mosques in Malmo need barricades and any police protection? Huh? Why not?

Comment#74... you are burden on planet earth. There are two things which I know about you.

1. You are not Swedish

2. You do not have job because of your low IQ.

- The fact is that you had absolutely no reaction at antisemitic-illiterate #15, but you do insult me. There are at least three things I know about you : you are just

1. pathetic

2. grotesque

3. despicable.

As an American i can say that the 'US Jewish center" needs to keep their mouths shut and let Sweden do what Sweden does..im so sick of Americans and other country's being such pussys about everything..so what he called you some names boo hoo..grow some balls and deal with it...when i was a kid it was "sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me"..not sure is that is an American thing or a world wide thing but seriously grow some balls

i have had enough of these pansy's getting Offended by bull shit
21:29 October 22, 2010 by Tdye
this is what i am talking about.. frankly i could give a hoot if you are a Jew,Muslim,German Black white Asian.. regardless of your religion or color.. it is high time people stop being offended by other people that "bash" you or them or who ever

everyone isnt going to like everyone..this is why Amerika som jag känner den är död...insted of fighting it just deal with it.. dont you kow the fastest path is the path of least resistance...Im a white American ( and on this site i get a lot of crap just because i am American) that is also an Atheist...the simple fact that i dont follow a religion gets me enough crap but unlike every person that crys about being offended it feeds me and i deal with it..if everyone would not let stuff bother them so much.. guess what would happen?...the picking wold stop...if you keep picking on your brother or sister and it upsets them what are you going to to? keep picking on them bt the second it doesnt bother them anymore it magically isnt fun anymore and you stop

humans are too soft this day in age...and if who ever reads this and is offended by this.. im talking about you

"If you are about to imminently benefit from the use any medical treatment (like the polio vaccine), technology, textbook, religious intuition (like monotheism), artistic creation, idea, language, or anything traceable to a Jewish source"

so are you trying to say that everything mentioned here jews invented?..ideas and language? really.. interesting cause most words spoken at least in English is an adjustment from both Latin and / or Greek...like theism, religion,medicine,vaccine..even the word "Idea"...my point isnt to bash you like i said religion does not impress me...but to ask do you think if it wasnt for a "traceable" link to Jews that invented these things..do you think that it wouldnt have been invented by now from a non jew?..just asking...

p.s.

Zoroastrianism was the first monotheistic religion in the world...not Judaism

"Zoroastrianism was the first monotheistic religion in the world...not Judaism"

Mayor Reepalu is clever. He knows that Muslim immigrants outnumber Jews. He probably can calculate when the Muslims will outnumber Swedes in Malmo. Muslims have always banked on such people.

In Spain they used to put Jews in charge of newly -conquered Spanish cities. It didn't stop some from accomodating the invader, even when Spaniards in Cordoba and elsewhere rebelled as in 818 when 300 Spanish notables were crucified as per Quran 5.5. (Eventually though the Spaniards did send the Muslims back to where they came from)

But the point is, it is not only "useful idiots" who help Islam. clever people like Mayor Reepalu also do so. How else could countries like Libya, Iran, Sudan, Chad, Senegal, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen etc have reached the acme of Islamic civilization which they enjoy today and Sweden will in 20 years or so.
22:43 February 3, 2011 by Zaklamont
Mayor Reepalu's behaviour is shameful and he deserves to win World Mayor Prize as much as the Swedish bankers who bankrolled Hitler deserve to win the World Banker Prize , or the Swedish industrialists who supplied the Third Reich deserve to win the World Industrialist Prize.

Reepalu is a cunning fox who knows who's holding the balance of power in his town.

If he thinks we are not organizing to have Malmo boycotted for its disgusting disloyalty and betrayal of its Jews, he is wrong.
