Sweden’s Jewish community has shut down synagogues across the country as a precautionary measure against a possible terrorist threat, the World Jewish Congress said.

The shutdown is expected to be temporary, but the threat of terror has swept Sweden. The Local website reported Friday that police are questioning a 25-year-old Iraqi man who was accused of plotting terror in the country.

The suspect is a member of a radical Islamic group, which was not identified.

Sweden’s terror threat level remains at ‘high” on Friday, the second-highest on a one to five scale.

“I think people are going to see a lot of police officers around today. We will see what comes out of interrogations and information, if there’s a reason to lower the level in the future. But it’s too early to tell,” national police chief Dan Eliasson told TT.

The chairwoman of the Official Council of Jewish Communities in Sweden, Lena Posner-Körösi, said that the security situation will be re-assessed on a daily basis.

Several European countries have raised their terror alert levels in the wake of last week’s Islamic State (ISIS) attacks in Paris.

“Violent Islamism is still the biggest threat against Sweden,” said Anders Thornberg., the director general of Swedish security service.

  1. Elvis you are a brainwashed hater and liar. If Jews controlled the world, those who hate them would not get so much air time to slander them. Not to mention , there are many leftist Jews who have been deceived by the rhetoric and taught to believe and propagate lies about their own people. Yet, even in their errors, they are a testimony to the values of Jews to value others even at their own expense. You project the evil Islamic plan to conquer and destroy on Jews. You are so full of evil , it must overflow on your scapegoats. You rewrite history to demonize Jews and justify your own evil. Muslims conspired with Hitler from the beginning and have much in common with him, yet you paint Jews as Nazis and somehow manage to get them banned from their own history. You can call Jews Nazis and deceive the gullable, but in the end your lies are still lies and the truth shall still be truth. Since I worship the God of truth and justice, I put my trust in Him. You can either repent and change and ask Him for forgiveness, or be sorely ashamed one day when you will be seen in all your ugly nakedness.

  2. Sweden is a traditional Prostitute :During WWII, under the veil of being neutral, Swedes supplied Germany with strategic war materiel for which Nazis paid with looted treasures. Now, it is a safe haven for those Arabs other Europeans reject. Sweden, yuk.
