And in Sweden…

‘Anti-semitism’ on the Left is an issue here in Sweden too.

Again, it’s the Social Democrats’ sympathy for the Palestinians that appears to lie at the root of the charge.

    Again, confusing the official Israeli Government policy (which actually many Jews oppose – does that make them anti-Semitic, too??) with anti-Semitism – which, for me at least, is hostlity towards Jews, individually and collectively, because of their ethnicity. I have Jewish friends back in the UK who abhor the way the State of Israel treats the Palestinians.

    • Yes. My partner’s daughter works for a wonderful Swedish-Jewish philanthropist who is working for Jewish-Arab reconciliation. I believe the term for them on the Israeli Right is ‘self-hating Jew’.

        And I’ve always admired the efforts of conductor/pianist Daniel Barenboim, in tandem with the late Edward Said, with the formation of his ‘East-West Divan Orchestra’ – incidentally a superb orchestra in their own right!

      • Right. Robert Weil (our philanthropist friend) brought him and his orchestra over to Stockholm a few years ago. They played a concert in the Berwaldhalle. Wonderful; hard to credit they’re mainly students. There was a Swedish TV programme about the orchestra at about the same time. Uplifting.
