    Leah Namdar hasn’t changed since i taught with her. She is still a strong, smart woman with her head on right. I wish them much Hatzlacha…my kids are on Shlichus in an Eastern European country & it’s very hard. Intermarriage & assimilation is 98%. The Namdars, my children, & Shluchim like them never give up. If not for them, who would look after these far-flung Jews?

    Kol Hakavod Leah – I completely agree there is not such a thing to distinguish between the Jewish people and Israel.
    It is a widespread misunderstanding here in Sweden – that we should only defend Israel when we agree – because we are just Jews not Israelis – THIS IS WRONG ALL JEWS ARE ISRAELIS AT LEAST THEY WILL BE IF THEY NEED TO – SO WE SHOULD BE ALWAYS. Charlotte

    too much excitement & madness. it’s a sensationalist newspaper. if untrue, let it be investigated and proven. stop accusing the swedes of anti-semitism…it doesn’t help.

    Normal newspapers first find out if something is true and then write about it, not the other way around like you & Aftonbladet write.

    I spent a day in Sweden a few years ago. When in Schlockholm, I saw and removed a Boycott Israel notice in a public bulletin board. In all my visits to European countries, I never saw that type of notice posted legally except in Sweden.

    if there would have been an article about Syrian soldiers “harvesting” organs,many Jews would have been screaming and shouting,..NOT saying this is a disgrace of journalism, and that the world is anti-syrian.

    The day still has to come that the Swedish media will speak out against Syria and other Israeli neighbours. I live in Sweden, and I can testify that the Swedish media is run very tightly by leftist Journalists and management. In absolutely every war since 1967 the Swedish media has been obviously anti-Israeli and pro Arab. You can see it on the titles focusing on Israeli (retaliation) attacks guised by the Swedish media as MERCILESS attacks by the IDF. Just now in the Gaza war most the focus was on Gaza victims instead of Hamas manipulation of civilians. sweden is… Read more »

    Unfortunately the rise of anti-Israel propaganda has risen in the Western press(newspapers, tv “documentaries” etc) alongside the rise in those countries’ Muslim populations. It is a question of economics and politics combined. In the UK alone there are now one and a half million Muslims, who all buy newspapers and satellite programmes etc. That such defamatory lies as the Namdars are now confronting shouldn’t really surprise us.

    This anti-Israel defamation is part of a “drip-drip-drip” constant stream of stories hostile to Israel. By doing it this way, rather than just demanding the abolition of the Jewish state, those hostile to Israel seek to “delegitimize” Israel, bit-by-bit-by-bit-by-bit, in the minds of the general public. None of these stories are ever corroborated by reliable witness accounts, further evidence etc., but the BBC, the Guardian newspaper and others repeat them as though they have been checked thoroughly, WHEN THEY MOST CERTAINLY HAVE NOT. Please see the Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks’ ,article in this month’s- September’s-edition of the excellent political monthly… Read more »

    I too have noticed the blatant anti-Israel tone of many European newspapers, broadcasters, particularly the British BBC, Guardian and Independent newspapers. Please check honestreporting.com for an expose of the worst examples of this misreporting.

    It is well-known that European countries are struggling to try to integrate their Muslim populations into their mainstream societies. By attacking Israel constantly, both the governments AND the media of these countries seek to placate these same troublesome Muslim minorities – that is the principal reason for this constant flow of anti-Israel stories.
