Rally Backing Jewish Community Held in Malmo

By: JTA

Malmo Mayor Ilmar Reepalu was among some 300 marchers who demonstrated in the Swedish city in support of the Jewish community.

Saturday’s march follows a series of anti-Semitic attacks on the Jewish community in the city of approximately 300,000 in the south of Sweden. Many of the participants wore kipahs as a sign of solidarity, according to thelocal.se.

Reepalu has called on Malmo Jews to reject Zionism as a strategy for repelling violent attacks on the community.

The Swedish minister for integration, Erik Ullenhag, announced a $76,000 government grant to the Swedish Committee Against Anti-Semitism for a new initiative in Malmo schools to help address problems faced by the city’s Muslim and Jewish populations, thelocal.se reported.

Malmo police over the weekend announced the establishment of a dedicated hate crimes hotline following an increase in attacks on Jewish and Muslim targets.

Earlier this month, demonstrations were held outside the Jewish community center in Malmo and in Stockholm to show solidarity with the community following a firebombing of the JCC’s offices.

  1. Myriam Obadia says:

    So the Mayor turned his jacket when he realized antisemitism wouldn't look good on his next election?

  2. He definitely would't care one bit/inch/cent whatever. A vile disgusting figure. The actual reason is that both the US and Israel massively "threatened" them and also the country if this $#it goes on any longer with public statements that tghe country is openly hostile to Jews… This short tiny sentence was supposedly enough to raise their stinking butts to try to start moving at least…
