Explosion rocks Malmö Jewish centre

Police were called out early on Friday morning after loud bangs were heard near the Jewish community centre in Malmö, southern Sweden.

“There as been an explosion. Something has detonated – we are certain of that,” said police officer Erik Liljenström to local paper Sydsvenskan early on Friday morning.

The police received a call shortly after 1am. Witnesses said they had heard loud blasts near the centre some 15 minutes earlier.

When police arrived at the scene they soon established that there had been some sort of explosion and that someone had tried to smash in the door.

There were loose paving stones lying among shards of shattered glass in front of the entrance, according to the paper.

While damage had been done to the front door, the building had not been damaged in any other way as far as the police could see, but according to witness statements the blasts were heard a few blocks away.

"I'm shocked that it's happened now; that it's happened at all. Jewish institutions are under constant threat, but we haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary recently," Fred Kahn, head of the Jewish community in Malmö, told the TT news agency on Friday morning.

Shortly after 4am, police announced that they had identified one of the vehicles and brought two men in for questioning.

Both of the suspects are 18-year-old, according to Malmö police, who nevertheless believe that more people were involved in carrying out the attack.

No one was reportedly injured in the attack. According to the police, the men are under suspicion of destruction constituting a public danger.

"Now their going to be interrogated, then we'll see. They weren't caught in the act," police spokesperson Anders Lindell told the TT news agency.

On Friday, Malmö's Social Democratic mayor Ilmar Reepalu, who has previously been criticized for making controversial statements about the city's Jewish community, condemned the attacks.

"It's a terrible incident which damages different groups in Malmö as well as Malmö's brand," he told the TT news agency.

"It's terrible and shocking when things like this happen."

Reepalu added that he hoped police would be able to solve the crime quickly and that it doesn't lead to heightened tensions in the city.

"This is a criminal act," he said.

Earlier this year, Reepalu came under fire for comments in which he claimed that the far right Sweden Democrats had "infiltrated" the Jewish community in Malmö.

The comments were followed by a visit to Malmö from US President Barack Obama's Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat anti-Semitism, Hannah Rosenthal, who said there is "no excuse" for using anti-Semitic language.

In 2009, comments by Reepalu prompted the the Simon Wiesenthal Centre in the United States warned Jews from traveling to Sweden's third largest city.

This development is not unexpected. Over a year ago, Andrew McCarthy wrote an article entitled, “Losing Malmo: Sweden Surrenders Their Third Largest City … to Muslims”

A Jewish Center in Malmo is like having a Jewish Center in Cairo.

Perhaps the geniuses who thought branding everyone in the West a potential nazi has backfired. Now these mentally ill white liberals have gone to the extremes with their passive-aggressive mentalities and have fallen for the “oppressed” shtick of the mooslims. I’m beginning to think that the people who demonized the West with the “racist” lable are evil themselves.

I actually have been in Malmo and it is a nice city in its downtown waterfront area, but the suburbs are some of the nastiest Islamic Cult neighborhoods in Europe

Anti-Semitism is on the rise everywhere....and you do not have to look any further than our own Anti-Semitic president and his views of Israel

Its specially terrible in Malmo. The jews there are to scared to wear their hats in public because of the fear of violence. Jewish cemeteries are being vandalized.

Malmo in general is a unsafe city where firetrucks have to have police escort or they will be attacked

There is nothing quite so fun as having stones thrown at you when you bury a grandparent at a cemetary whose sanctuary was torched.
The native Swedes and Danes may not care about the Jews, but their apathy to women being raped for being uncovered is just pathetic. Are there no men?

I got the following assinine email from Bnai Brith today
ATTACK ON JEWISH COMMUNITY BUILDING IN SWEDEN PART OF LARGER PROBLEM
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, September 28, 2012…The attack on the Jewish community building in Malmö, Sweden, earlier this morning shows that ongoing verbal threats and expressions of hatred against Swedish Jews need to be taken more seriously, Canada’s Jewish human rights agency said today, as an indication of a far larger problem.

Frank Dimant, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada, commented:

“Whoever is ultimately found to be responsible, one thing remains clear. The Jews of Malmö are doubly vulnerable, first because of an encroaching Islamism that threatens to infiltrate immigrant populations with an agenda of hatred and violence, and secondly because of a growth in the far-right movement that has seen a political party espousing dangerous ideologies enter parliament.

“It should be noted that the suspect in the terrorist bombing of an Israeli tour bus in Bulgaria earlier this year, in which seven civilians were murdered and scores more injured, was a Swedish national.

"One cannot ignore the continuum of hate that begins with anti-Jewish propaganda, proceeds to vilification of Israel and then leads inevitably not just to a surge in hate crimes against the Jewish community but to attacks like we saw today in Malmö. To have to use rocket-proof glass in the windows of the city’s synagogue and steel security doors for the Jewish kindergarten is a sad reflection on a country that was once seen as a haven for Jews fleeing persecution elsewhere.” -30-

For more information please contact Sam Eskenasi, Communications Officer at (647) 470-8439 or communications@bnaibrith.ca.

B’nai Brith Canada has been active in Canada since 1875 as the Jewish community’s foremost human rights agency

Frank Dimant, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada is lying to the Canadians. The attacks come from Muslims. Swedes (gentile and Jewish) voted for the Swedish Democrats because of this. The Swedish Democrats are not Nazis at all. They are Civic Nationalists. The member of the Riksdag from Lund (university town/sburb of Malmo) Kent Ekeroth is Jewish.

I'm sure that Soros's slave Cooper is equally lying in the US, but I was taken of the Bnai Brit email list in the US for speaking truth to lies too often.
