    a muslim kurd gets beaten for supporting israel so much for free speech and tolernce in europe

    My wife (a Philadelphia WASP who wouldn’t be mistaken for a Jew by a blind man with a very stupid dog) spent six weeks in Malmo about a decade ago, and came back with horror stories about the town. Whole sections were ‘no-go’ for cops and firefighters, and the local ‘youths’ ran in packs. Of course she also pointed out the one factor that our host seems unwilling to discuss….the individuals responsible for this behavior were the muslim immigrants who had infested the city as a result of Sweden’s liberal immigration policies.
    Take a good long look at Europe and you will see the same dynamic at work. Certainly you can find a few skinheads and Aryan Nation wannabes, but the overwhelming majority of these incidents are the result of immigrants from the muslim world and the local goverments do nothing about it.

      The fact that the local governments do little or nothing about antisemitic hate crime is the issue. The rise in such crime reflects the fact that it’s not punished.

        The Swedes find it difficult to acknowledge that their immigration policies are unwise.

        • Andrew Allison

          You’re right of course that the immigration policies are unwise. But the failure to prosecute antisemitic hate crimes is both antisemitic and hateful.

      • f1b0nacc1

        There is no question that you are correct here, but there is a difference between the shameful cowardice and denial on the part of the Swedes, and the evil and hate on the part of the muzzies

        • Andrew Allison

          That’s exactly the point I was trying to make.

      Scandinavians, multiculturalists to a fault, are paralyzed when they encounter other cultures. They’d hate themselves for bringing the monsters to heel, much less deporting them.

  • Andrew Allison

    TF’s failure to dig a little deeper on this story is disappointing. As noted below, the victim was a Kurd, and based on the comments his fellow-Muslim attackers made, they knew this; and the flag had been in his window for a year. This appears to have been an Iraqi-on-Kurd hate crime. Not to excuse the antisemitism rampant in Europe, but the reporting in this case was shallow.

  • S.C. Schwarz

    This will only increase as European fertility collapses and Muslim immigration increases. I wonder which will be the first country in Europe to adopt Sharia law?

    • Andrew Allison

      Shamefully, it’s already been adopted in parts of the UK.

  • lukelea

    The missing word from the headline was immigrant. Same thing all over Western Europe.

    • Andrew Allison

      That depends upon whether we’re discussing the perps or the widespread failure to prosecute them.
