Report: Swedish cities donate public money to fund anti-Semitism

Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom’s remarks during a session of parliament distracted attention away from the victims of terrorism and the horrific acts of Palestinian terrorists, by focusing blame on the Jewish State.

Last month, Israel condemned as “shockingly hostile” comments by Margot Wallstrom that seemed to link the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the ISIS-backed terrorist attacks in Paris.
