Anotherantisemitic Swedish/Scandinavian politician denies the Jews their obvious right to determine their own lives. In an interview, ironicallyabout stamping out antisemtism in Malmö, Sweden,Mayor of Malmö, Ilmar Reepalu, blames the collective Jew, Israel, for recentattacks against Jews in Malmö, "due to the conflict in Gaza last year spilled over to Malmo."
Skånsen.se: "Have you considered to say in public, that Malmö does not accept antisemitism. Or is it controversial?
Ilmar Reepalu: We don´t accept Zionism or antisemitism. They are extremists, which want to set themselves over other groups and believe they are worth less."
