Week 45: Debaters draw attention to growing anti-Semitism in the world

Last week was it 85 years then the November pogroms, also called the crystal night. This refers including Svenska Dagbladet's editorial writer to, and mean to the material moisture meter shows you the growing antisemitismWorld create gold in the Jewish the diaspora. Although the aid to Palestine and Sweden approach to the conflict between Israel and Hamas has continued to be subject for debate.  

At demonstrations around the world it has there were elements of anti-Semitism. Social media makes the spread of these views faster and more intense, which creates insecurity in the Jewish diaspora, says Fabian Zubicky in a guest post on Svenska Dagbladet's editorial page. He refers to Kristallnacht in 1938, which was the prelude to the Holocaust.

- Against the background of recent events in Europe, understanding the causes and outcomes of the November pogroms is – tragically, and without exaggeration – more relevant than ever, he writes.

Even aid to Palestine continues to be debated on Swedish opinion pages. Lars Adaktusson, chairman of the Sweden-Israel Friendship Association, believes that not only is a review of the aid required, but that it must be fundamentally remade. He believes, among other things, that aid money is used for political activism and that several organizations that mediate aid in Palestine do not live up to the new democracy and anti-terror criteria.

Ava Rundberg, confederation chairman Young left, etc. writes in one debate post in Dagens ETC that Swedish politicians and the Swedish media stare blindly at hypothetical Hamas connections in order to avoid the real question: the complicity of the Swedish state in the violence. They refer, among other things, to the paused aid to Palestine and that Sweden cast its vote in the UN vote on a humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza.

- Sweden must join the demand for an immediate ceasefire, they write.

Magnus Ranstorp, research leader at CATS/Defense University and columnist at Svenska Dagbladet, writes that Hamas cannot have acted independently before the terrorist act on October 7, without having to have acted in close consultation with both Iran and Hezbollah. He also argues that Sweden should consider banning the organization Samidoun, which collects money in both Stockholm and Gothenburg. Ranstorp believes that Samidoun has demonstrable links to Hamas and that the organization glorifies the terrorist action against Israel.

- It is high time that Sweden ceases to be a comfortable haven for terrorists and their sympathizers, he writes.
