Does Sweden love Israel?

By Sapere Aude! - Last updated: onsdag, augusti 26, 2009

”The world loves Israel.” That was my summary of what Haaretz journalist Gideon Levy claimed last spring, when an article by him in which he demanded that the Israeli ”war crimes” in Gaza would be investigated, was also published in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter (swedish). Levy is among other things known for his strong […]

By Sapere Aude! - Last updated: måndag, juni 1, 2009

Tomorrow, on Tuesday, June 2, Swedish Crown Princess Victoria will present the Alma Award in memory of Astrid Lindgren to the Palestine Tamer Institute. Something that will inevitably darken this event is that the pronounced anti-zionist Ulla Lundqvist has been one of the members of the jury which decided on the winner. Among other things, […]

Thus spoke Fatah leader and former ’Palestinian’ President Mahmoud Abbas, according to Haaretz, in response to a demand from Israel on the Palestinian Authority (PA) to recognize Israel as a jewish state.

Reuters reports that U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has reiterated the conditions for the U.S. to accept a government in ”Palestine” in which Hamas is included: We will not deal with nor in any way fund a Palestinian government that includes Hamas unless and until Hamas has renounced violence, recognized Israel and agrees to […]

Already yesterday, on the second day of five, was the very controversial and scaled down final document (pdf) from the Durban II Conference adopted by the Conference.

The Durban II-mischief, Ahmadinejad, Jonas Gahr Störe and Carl Bildt

By Sapere Aude! - Last updated: tisdag, april 21, 2009

See and hear the entire speech of Ahmadinejad here. See and hear also the Norwegian Foreign Minister here. Störe, which did not leave when Ahmadinejad called Israel a racist government in occupied Palestine, instead tried to save the situation by calling Ahmadinejad ”odd man out”, a parable perhaps not so well-founded. The interesting thing was […]

The Interparliamentary Union (IPU) this week had a meeting in Ethiopia. Arutz7 reports that the Israeli delegation left the conference, since two Hamas members participated in the ”Palestinian” delegation. Israel tried to persuade the Swedish chairman of the conference, IPUs Secretary General Anders Johnsson, to ensure that the Hamas-delegates would leave the conference, but he […]

Victory!

The Authority lost its case in the court trial. An unanimous court ruled that my so-called ”transfer”/demotion should be considered as a notice to quit and that it is invalid. The complete verdict can be downloaded as a PDF-file from here (swedish language). Many thanks to all who have supported me! But the issue at […]
