Swedes double down on Antisemitism: 2nd article, Gov't defiant

I hear that some are going to boycott Ikea in response. Unlike Danish in Muslim world - Swedes aren't too intimidated by Israelis, for good reason - we don't randomly blow up people and burn flags at every whiff of being somehow offended.

We do hold grudges though. We don't believe in handing the other cheek. One more point, the outrage here is directed at the Swedish government for refusing to condemn, not for allowing something to be published. It's only the decent thing to do. I don't hate Swedish people or people of Swedish descent in response - I hope no one else does either. I am angry with them for allowing these antisemites to represent them. I can only hope that the media and government do not represent the majority of people in Sweden, while I do understand that these are the people who shape public opinion. So... I guess I'm not holding my hopes up for the Swedes.

Swedish daily publishes second article on 'IDF organ harvesting'
Family of Palestinian teen killed in 1992 tells Aftonbladet reporters IDF soldiers demanded NIS 5,000 to return his body and claimed stitches result of autopsy

Despite Israel's harsh protests, Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet published a second article accusing the IDF of harvesting Palestinian organs.

In the article, published Sunday, Oisín Cantwell and Urban Andersson report from the northern West Bank village of Imatin, where 19-year-old Bilal Ahmad Ghanem was killed during a clash with Israeli soldiers in 1992.

Ghanem's family claims that his body was returned several days later, wrapped in hospital bandages. Aftonbladet published what is said was a photo of the body, which had a scar running from the neck down to the abdomen.

The biggest problem is that too many in this world are to susceptible to believing this kind of crap especially when Jews are accused. (Like Buchanan, Jimmy Carter, Novack - in short, all Hamas supporters/antisemites)
