Sweden's Jewish community is in “grave danger” after a series of anti-Semitic attacks, warns the European Jewish Congress. The statement came in the wake of an attack on two Jewish women earlier this week in the city of Malmo.
"The situation is intolerable for Jews in Malmo, and every week we hear of another attack,” said EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor.
"The community is slowly being pushed out; it is dying of 'a thousand cuts.' Each attack should be seen and dealt with as a part of a greater pattern to make Jewish life unsustainable in Sweden,” he reported.
"The attacks against Jews should be seen in their entirety and there is a concerted attempt to rid certain areas in Sweden, if not the whole country, of Jews,” Kantor warned.
