As far as I know, there has not been one single report of this in recent years -- and I listen to the BBC every day. As soon as there's a nutter out there, shooting at Muslims, it's all stops out. Of course shootings are crazy, stupid, reprehensible, abohorrent, and all that. Also more newsworthy. I grant all that. But the burnings of synagogues? The desecration of Jewish cemetaries? They don't count for even a mention?
All that Mansell says for background is to quote a lady journalist who puts all the blame on the "ultra-right" Sweden Democrat party, which gives cover to the shooter-nutter.
Ah well, wonderful this great multi-kulti tapestry of diversity. Burnings and shootings.
Letter to the Beebs:
A nutter going round shooting immigrants is shocking and deplorable. One hopes he (or she, though bet it’s a man...) is soon caught.
Still... One wonders why no background to this? It’s not just that there’s a “far-right” party calling for restrictions on immigration and seeming to give implicit encouragement to such nutters.
Jews have been subject to sharply rising attacks, from those same “immigrant” communities (aka Muslims). Attacks on the small Jewish community have doubled in the last year.
In 2009, a chapel serving the city's 700-strong Jewish community was set ablaze. Jewish cemeteries were repeatedly desecrated, worshippers were abused on their way home from prayer, and "Hitler" was mockingly chanted in the streets by masked men.Ref: here.
"I never thought I would see this hatred again in my lifetime, not in Sweden anyway," Mrs Popinski told The Sunday Telegraph.
"This new hatred comes from Muslim immigrants. The Jewish people are afraid now."
