just isn't an option, apparently. Especially when it's so much easier to ask the troublesome Jews to stay away...
The organizers claim that inviting the Jewish community presents a security risk, nt.se reports, citing anti-Semitic and anti-Israel protests present at past events.
"In previous years, we have had a lot of Palestinian flags at
these rallies, and even one banner where the Israeli flag was equated
with a swastika," organizer and local Workers' Party member Jan Hägglund
told locals. "The Jewish community wasn't invited because we assumed
they might be uncomfortable around that sort of thing."
Chickenshits don't have the balls to say "We asked the Jew-haters to stay away because we assumed they might be uncomfortable at a Kirstallnacht commemoration."
Meanwhile, the event's Facebook page appears to even downplay the
Jewish community's role in the event, instead conveying a generalized,
vanilla message of tolerance - not opposition to anti-Semitism.
