JNS.org – Israel said that Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom is no longer welcome in the Jewish state, a day after comments she made calling for an investigation into Israel’s “extrajudicial killings” of Palestinians involved in the ongoing wave of terror.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Emmanuel Nahshon, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that “given the incendiary and aggressive nature” of Wallstrom’s remarks, “we have made it clear that she is not welcome in Israel.”

Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely, meanwhile, had said before Nahshon’s comments that Israel would be “closing the gates” to officials from Sweden. But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said it wasn’t aware of that decision, Haaretzreported.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry also summoned Swedish Ambassador to Israel Carl Magnus on Wednesday to reprimand him over Wallstrom’s comments.

In December, Wallstrom had also accused Israel of carrying out “extrajudicial killings” of Palestinians during a discussion in the Swedish parliament. In November, she linked the Islamist attacks in Paris to Palestinian frustration with Israel.

    They don’t even have a problem in Sweden with their women getting raped, they have become a sick society.

  • Do not trust Sweden! A Nazi flag and literature was exhibited in my school Oslo Photo Art School ( Oslo Fotokunstskole ) at the school first year student exam exhibition in 1997 by a Swedish infiltrated fake student unseen solder in civil cloths which the Nazi flag and literature had nothing to do with art photography! Art photography does not deal with past received ideas into production! The Nazi flag was exhibited to provoke my mind! Those Nazis do use a trap ideology of “ push – poll” psycho tactic which is been with and against man in the same time. Watch out!

    There is no sane reason to allow Swedish officials into Israel at all unless it’s to take back a few hundred ‘palestinians’ with them.
