Swedish Jews, particularly those who reside in Malmoe—the country’s third-largest city—are growing concerned over an increasing number of anti-Semitic incidents, many perpetrated by “young men with roots in the Middle East,” said Jehoshua Kaufman, a member of the city’s Jewish congregation.
About one-third of Malmoe’s 310,000 residents were born abroad, including many in the Middle East. There are about 2,000 Jews in the city. Sixty-six anti-Semitic incidents were reported in Malmoe in 2012, according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention. About halfway through 2013, there have been 35 reports of anti-Semitic incidents. In all of 2010 and 2011 combined, there were 44 such incidents reported. Malmoe police said the number of anti-Semitic incidents in Malmoe is twice as large as the number in Stockholm, whose population is three times as large.
Although there are other types of right-wing extremism in Sweden besides for radical Islam, in Malmoe it is “the young Muslim guys that are the problem,” said Barbro Posner, a member of city’s Jewish community, according to Israel National News.
“[Muslims behind anti-Semitic incidents in Malmoe] come from countries where there are racist, anti-Semitic TV programs,” Posner said.
