The biggest Swedish pension fund has barred Israeli defense electronics company Elbit Systems from its investment portfolios on ethical grounds, Israel Radio reported Monday.
Following the lead of Norway's state oil fund, the Första AP-Fonden pension fund said it had banned investment in Elbit because the Israeli company had built and is operating a surveillance system for the much debated West Bank separation barrier.
Critics of the controversial barrier argue that it is an illegal attempt to annex Palestinian land under the guise of security and that it severely restricts Palestinians who live nearby, particularly their ability to travel freely within the West Bank and to access work in Israel. Proponents, however, argue that the barrier has greatly reduced the incidence of suicide bombers coming from the West Bank and carrying out terror attacks within Israel.

Passover is this Friday. The angel of death’s day. Sad choices make for bad consequence. “It is finished.”
I’m boycotting Sweden, and will not buy any Swedish goods.
Maybe they should invest in Volvo now that China bought it.
Passover is in three hours, give or take.
That would be an interesting company to invest in. I will have to check.... My way of supporting Israel.
They are going to buy Palestinian War Bonds instead, AAAAARGGGH RATED.
Hard to believe the descendants of Vikings could be such wimps.
“Im boycotting Sweden, and will not buy any Swedish goods.”
Except the hot blondes and tasty meatballs. Let’s be civil about this.
OK, this requires a link!
What is wrong with the Swedes? It’s the Muzzie immigrants who are committing the rapes and assaults.
I have made the same decision. And, unless I see a complete turnaround, I shall not put my foot on their soil.
