Reacting to the blood bath in Paris on Friday night, which left more than 132 dead and hundreds of others seriously wounded, the Swedish foreign minister linked the multi-pronged massacre perpetrated by ISIS terrorists to Palestinian suffering, indicating that Israel was to blame, a Swedish-Jewish political adviser and activist told The Algemeiner on Sunday.

Annika Hernroth-Rothstein — who gained notoriety for requesting asylum in her own country, to make a public statement about life as a pro-Israel Jew in Sweden – recounted: “One hour after the attacks, at 10:45 pm, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström was interviewed on Swedish national TV [SVT2T], and she said that ‘to fight radicalization, we have to go back to the situation in the Middle East, where especially the Palestinians see no future. We either have to accept a desperate situation or act forcefully.'”

This, Hernroth-Rothstein said, “is an example of where most of Europe is today: making excuses for murderers; blaming the killings of more than 130 innocent people on ‘Israeli occupation;’ and refusing to acknowledge that what we see unfolding on our streets is created, and sustained, by European inaction and cowardice in the face of pure evil in our midst.”

She added that such carnage in the streets of a major European city was “never a question of if, but when,” noting that “despite having a rise in homegrown terror since the London bombings 10 years ago, Europe has failed to identify the threat and instead given in to a severe case of cognitive dissonance.”

    Will the last Infidel to leave Sweden switch off the lghts? It hurts the eyes hiding inside the burqa!

    I just read the same claim from a p.a. outlet.

  • Rudina Richter

    Bear with me here: Let’s postulate that Israel gives in to this cacophony of haters and allows itself to be eliminated from the face of the earth. How does this resolve the Jihadist quest for elimination of the infidel world-wide? In fact, wouldn’t this fuel their fervour and resolve to systematically terrorize the rest of the non-believing world in pursuit of their stated agenda to purify the human race? Think about it. Israel is point-man in containing this virulent and destructive fundamentalist movement, and she needs strength and support to prevail. And the rest of the world will suffer needlessly if she falls.

    Annika must blunder about in her own deep cognitive dissonance while Israelis bravely venture to preserve their dream of freedom from conquest by barbarians of the 7th century. Annika you are an ignorant slut.

    • D Pearl

      It is not Annika who is off, but Margot Wallström, the idiot minister who thinks life will be perfect without an Israel.

  • Daniel Less

    Our foreign minister Margot Wallstrom is merely following the Swedes illustrous tradition of antisemitism and Jew hatred that goes back to the 1930’s.
    It’s now only called anti zionism, where every atrocity perpetrated by Muslim terror groups can be explained as a result of ” the oppression by Israel of the poor Palestinians”.
    Thus the terrorist atrocity committed recently in Paris is perfectly understandable of course, and indirectly Israel is to be blamed for it. It justifies the massacre in other words. Nothing really new
    here.
    It goes to show that even idiots can reach high office in Sweden.

    “swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström was interviewed on Swedish national TV [SVT2T], and she said that ‘to fight radicalization, we have to go back to the situation in the Middle East, where especially the Palestinians see no future. We either have to accept a desperate situation or act forcefully.’”Members of this curtrent swedish governement were on mavi mara

  • steven L

    The foreign minister of Sweden belongs to the asylum. Why is Sweden so INSANE? Must be related to their Lutheranism. So basic and fundamental antisemitism.

  • roy wise

    What can you expect from a people who allowed the Nazis free access through their country to attack Norway

  • HaroldT

    This can be expected from Abbas. But, clearly Sweden has become the 21st Century Nazi’s

  • Eugene Levich

    Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström demonstrates the same Scandinavian idiocy as the people who awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama.

  • Aaron

    Clearly the FM is simply trying to appease the Arabs who are taking over her own country. That she would sell out Israel for this convenience merely underscores the depravity that Hernroth-Rothstein refers to.

    Mazel tov more power to the observers of Torah and y”l to the swedish, vatican and scots enablers of the arab scum

  • This is typical of too many of these Europeans, to blame whatever goes wrong on Jews and/or Israelis. Theirs is an easy evaluation of whatever goes wrong in the Middle East. That way they don’t have to do any diagnostic objective evaluations. Yet they act as if they are experts on the Middle East and other topics, which usually they are not.

  • brenrod

    looks like europeans have to suffer what Israel suffers to beign to learn

    The political mafia that’s in charge in Europe is in VERY deep trouble. Their credibility on all fronts, be it economic, cultural, political, is now below ZERO. It will not be long before the guillotine, or something very similar in purpose, will be resurrected by the people against this mafia. The current Swedish Foreign Minister, Margot Wallström, is just the latest example of how corrupt, arrogant, and detached from reality this mafia really is.
