    “Kippah Walk” in Malmö in solidarity with Jews persecuted in … Malmö

    “Kippah Walk” in Malmö in solidarity with Jews persecuted in … Malmö

    I have written a number of times about the persecution of Jews in the Swedish city of Malmö by Islamists with the connivance of anti-Israeli leftists, including the Mayor:

    This Islamist-Leftist coalition manifesting itself in anti-Israeli actions which inevitably turn anti-Semitic isn’t limited to Malmö, but that it is happening in tolerant Sweden says a lot.

    The situation is so bad that there is gonig to be a “Kippah Walk” in solidarity with the Jews of Malmö, via JPost:

    Kippah-wearing Jews and non-Jews are expected to march Saturday in Sweden as a sign of solidarity with Malmo’s Jews.

    “The idea is to show ourselves and others that we refuse to be afraid or hide our Jewish affiliation,” Fredrik Sieradzki, director of communications for the Jewish community of Malmo, told JTA. He said he expected at least 100 marchers.

    Earlier this year, a rabbi from Malmo was physically assaulted.

    In 2010, Malmo’s mayor, Ilmar Reepalu, said that a group of Jews in Malmo who were attacked by Swedish Muslims during a peaceful protest in support of Israel brought the violence upon themselves for not distancing themselves from Israel and its actions during the month-long Gaza War in 2008-09.

    AP reports that several hundred people marched and that there were no incidents.  But the AP report played the same blame game in tying the anti-Semitism to the Israeli invasion of Gaza:

    Malmo, which has a large immigrant Muslim community, saw a surge in hate crimes against Jews after Israel’s invasion of Gaza in 2009.

    So if Jews attacked Muslims in Europe because of rocket fire from Gaza, would AP and the leftists excuse or minimize the attacks because it was a reaction?  That standard only seems to apply when Jews are attacked.

    Bonus question:  Will pointing out the truth about Malmö land me on SPLC’s “hate map” along with Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs?

    Update:  I just noticed that Danel Greenfields’ Sultan Knish also is on SPLC’s NY hate map.

    We need a counter organization to the SPLC, perhaps something like the National Prosperity and Tolerance Group

      The proper way to counter emotional appeals is with reason. Neither is effective without proper framing or presentation.

      What would a counter organization be and what could it accomplish? It’s my opinion that the SPLC serves almost not function any more except to satisfy its partisan backers. It rarely uncovers new information of significance and rarely provides meaningful analysis that would pass, say, peer review (that being a HUGE progressive cry for climate science). Perhaps there should be an organization like the early SPLC. Then we wouldn’t need to call for a “counter” group as they would be essentially fair and honest.

    Jewish organizations, political activists, and individuals have been the strongest supporters for open borders in Sweden. I will waste no tears for hypocrites.

    I note how the SPLC hate map page has its “Who we are” link right next to a picture of helmet wearing thugs. I’m assuming this is typical leftist projection.

    How long before SPLC’s Hate Map is available as an iPhone app, adjunct to your GPS?

    […] At Legal Insurrection, Professor Jacobson wonders if noting Islamic anti-semitism in Malmo will get him condemned as a hate group by the SPLC, along with me, Pamela Geller and Casa D’Ice signs. […]
